The more I think about this whole approach to interviews in 2006, the more clear it becomes that, throughout time, there are only two questions that cannot be asked of a man: “How much do you make a year?” and “How big is your penis?” It strictly is not done.
On the face of it, this might seem to be a taboo, and maybe it is. On the other hand, there are ways to handle such things. In the July ’85 Playboy Interview, Rob Reiner came out swinging, so to speak, in the very first paragraph: “Under no circumstances will I reveal the size of my penis.”
For myself, I’ve never been asked either, and don’t expect to be and as it happens, the answer I would give is the same for both: “I wouldn’t mind a little extra.”
