‘Small Penis’ Leads to Boy’s Suicide

Small penis’ leads to boy’s suicide

HE WAS a second-year student at a top junior college, a member of the school volleyball team, a cheerful and energetic boy who was doing well enough in his studies to take Special Papers.  

Yet on March 3 this year, the 18-year-old jumped to his death from a Bedok housing block, because he was convinced his private parts were too small. 

Delivering a verdict of suicide on Tuesday, State Coroner Tan Boon Heng was sufficiently concerned by this “tragedy of misinformation” to recommend that the case be forwarded to the Ministry of Education (MOE).  

“The importance of sex education to our young people in schools cannot be over-emphasised,” he wrote.  

“The case study is useful for relevant MOE officers to appreciate the problem of the severity of misinformation even among the best and brightest in our schools.”  

The boy, who cannot be named, had confided in his mother in October last year that he was worried his penis was too small.  

She took him to a neighbourhood clinic, where the doctor told him his penis was of a normal size for an Asian man, and prescribed him multivitamins. 

Despite strong emotional support from his girlfriend and his mother, he remained convinced he had a problem. He also had a history of being stressed over schoolwork.  

In January, he told his mother that his life was “boring and meaningless” and that the only thing stopping him from suicide was his family's love.  

On March 3, after his usual volleyball practice, he took a bus from school to the Bedok interchange, but did not take his usual connecting bus home. When his sister sent him a text message at around 7pm to ask if he was coming home for dinner, he replied that he would eat out. 

The next and final message she received from him was at 8pm, telling her and their mother to take care. 

They realised something was wrong, but he repeatedly failed to answer his phone.  

He jumped from a housing block near the Bedok bus interchange at around 8.30pm. 

He was semi-conscious when he was taken to Changi General Hospital, but was pronounced dead at 10.40pm from multiple injuries. – The Straits Times / Asia News Network  


  1. Hi,
    I found your blog via google by accident and have to admit that youve a really interesting blog :-)
    Just saved your feed in my reader, have a nice day :)

    its natural to be shocked but ultimately he wasn’t going to enjoy a single day of the next 50 years. education would not have changed his size. he’s at peace now.

  3. A study was made about the size of the penis, women are more about the motion than the size, however, a guys with a bigger penis will feel confident about himself and will satisfy any woman in bed.

    Respect for the young man. I just wish he had access to a less painful death.

    Myself, I will use sleeping tablets and plastic bag over my head or when I have access to a car gas myself after taking sleeping pills.

    I agree with jilly. Some guys just aren’t dealt a good hand. It’s not fair but life isn’t fair.

    nearly all male with size issues will not discuss the matter due to embarassment, along with ridicule from from friends, strangers or your girlfriend, most teeenagers dont realise that these remarks can cause extreme sense of feeling that because of your size you can never satisy a woman, for the past 23 years i have dealt with and investigated the problem personally, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, deep down all women will wonder if bigger is better and look elsewhere and in the course of doing so will sometimes say some cruel remarks just to end a relationship that can have a lasting devastating effect

    “because such a tragic incident could have been prevented. ” really how so??? I personally deal witht his exact issue all my life.. im 4.5..and always wondered if I feel this way how would those smaller feel? Ive had women leave me because of this..No one can know because i would become a joke…had a lot of friends in highschool but knew mingling with girls in the group circle would be to risky fo rme since once we broke up shed just go aorund telling her gfs this and that..I just avoided it.

    Always dated girls from other schools. Now im 26 and Im at the age where I should be dating..Im an aerage ooking guy with a great personality but the only thing that gets in the way of myrelationships is this issue..Now when I see a pretty grl my age that I want to talk to..I think about approaching and all of a sudden i flash fwd to “what will she think when she sees it” and the reality is I MYSELF think its pathetic…I myself have been contemplating suidide..not that I would do it becase I love my mother to much and she wouldnt be able to handle it..

    sEE THIS ISNT MY Only issue I also have severe eczema and now onset of arthritis at this age! how sad is that..I cant do much but gamble and drink…I use to be afraid of dying younger..now I almost welcome the fact :( like a quick death would be ideal..plane crash or car crash some instant that I DIDNT CAUSE…but I fear that things will not happen that way..I just hope I can find strength in my life so one day i Just dont decide to take my life …and if I were I would def do it by opiate overdose…w/e thats my piece

  12. Jay

    and so add to that the only way tragic things like this could be prevented would be if the human culture didnt make a joke of it or shame people like us…I WAY TOO OFTEN see small penises as the butt of a joke…I ahvent gone ONE WEEk not seeing a commercial, show, movie anything that didnt include a small penis joke…just reminds me everyday..its bad enough I have to use this thing everyday to piss!

  13. Jay

    Since Suicide is not an option for me or desire…over the years Ive just turned to drugs and alcohol to cover up my daily pains. I remember when I was a teen I saw this would happen to me..jut alawyas hoped Id have a lot of money so I can buy any drug I wanted…Ive even smoked crack several times…yeah it waws great and all btu then Id want more.so I saw how easily it could ruin my life even more than it already is! so I just drink a lot and snort cocaine..Im not a bad person i just want to feel good and happy about myself :(

    To Jay; i was like you. High school was excruciating I hung out with the cool kids good at sports all of them. I was 5′ 5′. Liked so many girls but for the same reason as you avoided a girlfriend so they wouldn’t talk. I was alway’s told you are cute just makes you more resentful. One thing i had on my side character. Jay you got to use that as motivation fuck the friends with there snive comments I heard them to. I heard that a Gym teacher was talking about my size with other students. Have a chip on youre shoulder find a job, get better at it. out work people. You have something to prove ALWAY’S. Outwork people make them look bad. Think of it as a character builder.
    The great thing happend for me. I got to be friends with a Pro Dominitrix she was gorgeous great body we became great friends and very close. She knew all about sex and relationships she changed my life. She basicaly showed me how to please women. It was great Iwas talking to beautiful women in clubs i was changed. Jay I am now 49 yrs old. Married to a beautiful women now for 8 yrs. And I to have physical pain issues.
    What I am trying to say the older you get the easier it gets You start to accept youreself for who you are. My twenties were the worst also. I would think of way’s of offin myself alot. Jay hang tough this situation makes you tougher. And don’t take crap from no one. Work out get stronger that was an huge outlet for me. And music. Sometimes it was just me and my albums.
    Dude hang in there it gets better. I lived it.

    This is awful. I personally have a disproportionately sized penis to my body size. I’m 6 ft 1 and my penis is 7 inches, but only 4.25 around. Unfortunately, thickness is the part that matters.

    I’ve had sex with 9 women and eight of them have mentioned my penis size negatively. I’ve given them orgasms with other parts of my body and I’ve read all the articles. I’ve lived it and I can tell you, honestly, when it boils down, it doesn’t matter how many orgasms you give her with your fingers and tongue, she’s always going to want to feel you close against her, with a bigger penis, giving her the orgasm nature intended.

    And I hate.it.

    I am an athletic, intelligent, creative man. I write books. I create music. I sing songs. I play several instruments. I’ve been told I’m exceptionally good-looking but as soon as the clothes come off, women’s perceptions of me change. Relationships don’t last very long and I honestly no longer enjoy women’s company because I know where things ultimately lead; to their disappointment and to my self confidence having another shred torn out of it.

    Personally, I don’t care about breast size. Nor do I care about the size of her bum. I enjoy seeing her wake up, hair a mess and make-up wiped from her face. I think it’s an exceptional sight. Perhaps I’m old fashioned but I derive a lot of pleasure from knowing a woman. From speaking to her. Making her laugh. Enjoying her company.

    I was brought up to believe, as a lot of people are, in the good in people. And I still often refuse to budge from my optimism in many areas of life, at the expense of seeing the darker side of people. But the truth is, a woman can be pleased with your personality, your looks, your wallet, your demeanor, your attitude and your values, but when she gets horny, all she really wants is a big penis.

    Anything less, is simply just that; less. And in today’s society, where loyalty and values come second to pleasure and material, there’s nothing stopping her from going in pursuit of that ‘more’ that she craves.

    It’s no longer enough to be simply an intriguing, genuine, caring, passionate man.

    I understand why this young man killed himself. And the way things are going, how the world is becoming this irreverent, harsh place; I see it happening a lot more in the next few years.

    In fact, I would go so far as to say, there are very few, young, modern women who would seriously be what we consider ‘satisfied’ with a man with a smaller than average penis, regardless of what else he ticked on the checklist. The larger penis is always sought after, simply because it as viewed as more masculine. It is thought to pleasure the woman more intensely, and people today have so many sexual partner’s that they experience all of the different shapes and sizes.

    This is a very sad fact, but it seems a lot of women are slaves to their hormones and a lot of men are slaves to their egos. I suppose it comes down to a simple question really; are you an animal or are you a human being?

    Real people, ones who are more enlightened than to follow the herd, will know to derive their pleasure from giving. They’ll know that it’s the lies and deception of an animal nature that thinks that life is made to search out things for oneself’s own primal satisfaction; that real relationships, fulfilling relationships, are when two people desire to give to the other without thought for themselves. Anything less than this, and the unrealistic view of relationships will always stick in our minds; two perfectly airbrushed humans, one with large breasts and wide hips and a tiny waist, clinging to a muscled man with a large penis and a tall physique, perfect white teeth, perfect strides, and charismatic, effortless character. Totally pie-in-the-sky.

    Everybody has a choice, and just as I’ve made mine, people have the right to make theirs.

    But I won’t bring a woman down for her weight, her hair. I won’t expect her to be perfect because nobody is. That’s what I have to give. I don’t put my primary expectations for a relationship on the way a woman looks. And regardless of my penis size, that already makes me an exceptional man.

    If I have to spend my life celibate, being torn to shreds by women who only look as far as my skin, then so be it. It only means that I’ll have proven my point come the end.

      It is a shame that someone would commit suicide because of this issue, rather than KILLING the ones who had humiliated them. I think it would be much, much better to take the life of those who made you feel so miserable rather than taking your own, YOU ARE WAY MUCH WORTH than others

    Im glad to be blessed with a large penis I found that it is true that women commonly choose ,and seek sexual pleasure from a large cock and it does instill confidence in a man ,the more large u are the more purmiscous u are.I had sex with over 110 women mostly white girls the favorites are of german decent and boy thay can have the most shapely bodies large bubblebutts.
    There is one german girl I sexed and the first 3 time she tapped out because im a bit large but still she have orgasms and to me that is exciting to witness the 3rd time I sexed her I almost faint her vigina was so tight that it mad me poped fast.
    O yeah im black and it is most likely we are natured with big cocks not always Ive seen white and latins with cocks my size or bigger i am glad to be flaccid with a 8 1/2 size cock and the women loves it. But having a big cock u have to be careful u dont hurt ur sexual partner Im known as a black stretcher!

  18. track-on

    And oh yeah. I some time could be even larger the more aroused the bigger I get!

    In .broome county ny there is a interracial dating and marriage especially among white women and blackguys I guess they like the large cocks. When I 1st moved in binghamton ny york I was approached by a beautiful lady she happen to be white she has like a ghostly pale complextion brown eyed and a amazing petite figure in nyc white women are terrified of blackguys so it accurd to me was i was thinking some way to get away from her cuz I did’nt want to scare her mostly all around a blackman such as my self is feared by wites and other race they cuz they say we commit the most crimes but I heardof FBI statistics says other wise. Well this white female did’nt fear me we talk for a few hours the next day we had sex and boy when it was over she told me u are the biggest one I kind of blushed but it true I am large cocked i screwed her over 19 times and it seems white ladie have a fantasy of being plugged by big hung blacks and the srereotype is very true the was anothe white girl she told me she has a young black husband and she said boy ur bigger than him and that as i said the bigger does matter! AND ive screwed a couple of white girls of German decent they seem to be in the category of having large butts!

  1. 1 The Reflections of Philip @ The Eternal Wanderer » Blog Archive » Sex Education of our young people is imperative!

    [...] I read this news item in The Star, which I archived it here on my blog, with a mixture of shock, horror and dismay. Shock and horror that the 18-year-old Singaporean boy, who is an excellent student, chose to take his own life over something that is as trivial as the size of his own genitals. Dismay – because this is an example of how misinformed our young people can be when it comes to issues regarding sex and their body parts. Dismay, because such a tragic incident could have been prevented. [...]
