Storyline

Men, most of them naked, talk about their penises. The men range from 17 to 70+, all are from the U.S. of diverse races. Several are artists or performers. Some are gay, others straight; two are transsexual. One is paralyzed below the chest. The interviews are edited around themes: discovery, early sexual experiences, masturbation, size, oral sex, libido, performance, disease and maladies, maturity. A lexicographer discusses language, especially slang; a few archival educational-film clips divide the topics. Images and stories mix with facts and philosophical reflection. The usually private becomes public. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Great and WONDERFUL Adult Documentary !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
17 May 2008 | by totoro_fuzzSee all my reviews

Great applause and cheers to HBO and the creators of PRIVATE DICKS. This very personal documentary talks about the feelings, physicality and often hidden stories that surround a man's private sexual parts. As a man, I found this refreshing, informative, funny and honestly human. Too often, sexuality is hidden away as if it were some dark and evil secret. I don't understand why some people get offended at such things or say it is a shame that children might see this. We are all one gender or another, and I hope this movie allows people to shake off the VERY, VERY, VERY DESTRUCTIVE and harmful ways of making sexuality into something bad, dark and quite terrible. This is why this film is like A BREATH OF FRESH AIR! This show is made with the most candid, down to earth and honest film-making I have seen in many years. I HIGHLY recommend this to adult men and women alike who are even a little curious how men think and how they perceive themselves.
