After a very public marriage rejection on the jumbotron of a UCLA basketball game, Patrick Moote is informed of a certain shortcoming by his girlfriend. And then she leaves him. Heartbroken and confused, he sets out to answer mankind’s burning question, once and for all: Does size matter?

Including interviews with ex-girlfriends, doctors and anthropologists, Moote lays his anxieties and neurosis bare for all to see. He then takes to the world—from porn conventions and Korean sex museums, to witch doctors in Papua New Guinea—in an effort to answer bigger questions. What is the porn industry’s effect on sexual expectations? What about society’s strange obsession and terrifying techniques for increasing penis size?

Tackled with determination and humour, this revealing documentary also features interviews with sex columnist Dan Savage, ecosexual sexecologist Annie Sprinkle, and Jonah Falcon, the man with the world’s largest penis. Contains graphic imagery.
