The shock value, both verbal and visual, is considerable. But
[Private Dicks] is neither prurient nor offensive... [The men are]
the picture of honesty and vulnerability.

Men spend a lot of time thinking about their penises, and even
thinking with their penises. But rarely do we hear men talking honestly
about their penises—until now.Surveying young and old, gay
and straight, large and small, virgin and porn star, from all walks
of life, Private Dicks: Men Exposed explores the naked truth about
how men feel about their penises. The men, many of whom appear nude,
offer personal revelations that are honest, humorous and often poignant
as they frankly discuss puberty, power, impotence, circumcision,
sexuality, myths and perceptions, growing old, and, of course, size.
Interspersed with clips from vintage sex education films and humorous
cartoons, Private Dicks: Men Exposed provides a rare opportunity
for both interviewees and audience to begin an honest conversation
about masculinity, power, vulnerability, sex and love-all seen through
the lens of a man's relationship to his penis.
