Anyone ever have penis envy?

I've heard of this from a long time ago but I don't know anyone who ever admitted, at least, to wanting a penis. Is it real or just some crazy psychology idea?

  • Ew... who wants some ugly appendage hanging off their body all in way and stuff? Not me. I've never once wanted to be a man.

  • OP here...I think it would be fun to have a penis for a day too but I dont think that is what penis envy is; I think it is more permanent?

  • Penis envy is more of a though process, it's like wanting the benefits and "power" that a man has in certain situations, so YES I have had slight amounts of penis envy when it comes to my car, as in I wish that the stupid rip off mechanic didn't see me as the "little woman" who knows NOTHING about my car and then gouges me on repair....

  • i've always wanted to be a guy.... not permentaly but just the benefits of it. They work, don't have to take care of the kids, don't have to clean the house, don't have to cook, don't have all the freakin drama girls have, don't have to go through child birth.... it would just be a lot easier to be a man, i don't care what they say. I've worked and i think it's easier then doing everything i do now that i have a kid and am a stay at home mom. so yes i have penis envy almost everyday, i get tired of being looked down upon because I'm a woman

  • Omy, I've never wanted to be a guy or deal with a penis. It's just THERE all the time, hanging out, in the way, getting sweaty. No thanks. I also don't want to be treated like a guy. I like being female with all the frustrations that go with it.

  • I would love to be a man for just one day. To understand how they think and feel deep down. But just one day.

  • penis envy is a theory that sigmund freud came up with years and years ago, in like the 1800's when men had a lot of power, and women couldnt do anything so it fit the times yano? things are different now.
