The Smallest Penis in Brooklyn pageant may be no more, but original contestant Rip van Dinkle’s infamy was alive and well in 2017. Podcasters, radio hosts, and bloggers — most of them female — were happy to amuse themselves and their listeners/readers by pubicly publicly evaluating Rip and his tiny tool.

So what was it like to have his penis fall under the critical gaze of American women?



Do most women feel like conservative Tomi Lahren (below) when it comes to puny-peckered men like Rip?



Who’s Checking Out Rip’s Dinkle?

(Click on pictures for a larger view)





Celinda Appleby (above) co-hosts a podcast called The Spark. She set up an interview with Rip to discuss wee peckers. Fellow guest Shoshana (click audio, below) had a question for Rip about the pageant:


“Like, do you all whip it out and somebody takes a ruler? Do I get to eye your penis?”

Uhh, yes and yes, Shoshana. See pictures at the top and bottom of this post.








Kat Grudowski (above) is a Wisconsin filly who blogs at The Sex Kitten. Kat wasn’t at all hesitant to ask – and then share on her blog – the most intimate questions about Rip’s manhood, no matter how potentially embarrassing.



Says Rip: “I was a bit surprised by her article. Normally, when I do these interviews, the girl prints my stage name and is fairly positive in tone. But Kat pretty much took out her scalpel and castrated me in public, even mentioning my penis size down to the centimeter. I guess these millennial girls are so angry at older men right now that Kat couldn’t resist the opportunity to snip off my balls.

“It certainly wasn’t the first time a female blogger posted every embarrassing sexual detail about me. I got emasculated by Lizzi (click here) and Alicia (click here), too.”




From Kat’s post on The Sex Kitten:



On a scale of one to ten, one being smallest and ten being biggest, where would Kat put Rip’s manhood? That’s Rip on the left in the picture below.










August McLaughlin, a fellow Minnesotan now living in Los Angeles, seemed disappointed to learn that the small-penis pageant wasn’t entirely an “anti-body shaming” event. That didn’t stop August from giggling about “dinky winkies” as she introduced Rip on her podcast:

“If you [listeners] have engaged in some dinky winkie, did you actually think it was funny?”


Rip: “She’s a Minnesota girl, so she’s probably seen her share of shriveled cocks.”

Here is August discussing small cocks with Rip:










The Practical Joke


Years before the small-penis pageant, Rip had some fun at the expense of local radio personality Kevyn Burger. Using the alias of a spurned ex named “Maggie,” Rip e-mailed Burger about a (fake) Web site in which “Maggie” had posted naked pictures of her ex (Rip in a hot tub).

Rip: “If ever there was a ‘mom’ radio show, this was it. I think Kevyn and her friends were genuinely shocked at the sight of my bone at half-mast. Speaking of which … I’m a grower, not a shower, so that partial erection is atypical.

“I e-mailed Burger after the show, using another fake profile and pretending to be a woman hoping to see the nude pictures. Burger said she couldn’t forward the link but assured me the photos were ‘choice.’”


Click below to hear the segment on FM107 in which Kevyn and two gal pals discuss Rip’s nude pictures:





Kevyn Burger:  “So I click on it [the link] and hello — there he was in all his glory, and I was just blushing and clicked away.”


 Above, the photo that made Burger blush (from the shoulders down, that is)


KB:  “Is this humiliating for a guy, to be pictured naked on the Internet?”

KB:  “Well, the picture of this guy on the Web site, I forwarded it to you ladies –”

Gal Pals:  “Yes!”

Gal Pal 2:  “I just about died.”

KB:  “He looks pretty proud.”

Gal Pal 2:  “He’s wearing himself a big old smile.”

KB:  “And nothing else!”

Gal Pal 1:  “And nothing else.”

Gal Pal 2:  “Just his birthday suit.”

KB: “I don’t know if he’s exactly identified.”

Gal Pal 2:  “We see everything else.” (laughter)

Gal Pal 1:  “I think we can see the identifying marks.”






Podcasters Rachel Khona and Abbi Stern, pictured above at the 2014 Smallest Penis in Brooklyn pageant, interviewed Rip for their podcast Have You Seen My Panties? Click below to hear the interview:









Rip was interviewed by Zoe Lillian (above right) and Nicoletta Heidegger (above left) for their podcast, Sluts & Scholars.

Zoe got right to the point: “How small is your dick?” she asked Rip.

About 1.5 inches, Rip revealed.

Zoe told Rip that she researched him on the Internet, and was “aghast” by the negative comments she read about him and other men with wee willies:

“A lot of women [were] shaming Rip for his small dick, saying like, ‘I couldn’t feel that even if it were inside me,’ or, ‘It would be like a finger … how on earth dare you be OK with your small penis?’” 

Zoe went on to interpret society’s attitude toward men with small cocks:

“The penis is the epitome of maleness, and the more male you are, the bigger your dick is. We as a society are bombarded with imagery of women deriving pleasure from deep penile thrusting,” Zoe said.

Imagery like the scene below from Any Given Sunday, in which Cameron Diaz eyeballs a big black cock in the locker room:



Zoe continued: “I once had sex with a man who had a really small penis and he was, um, kind of apologetic about it. So he just spent a really long time going down on me. And I didn’t really feel the need to be like, ‘I would rather you do this anyway.’”

Says Rip: “Zoe Lillian gave me erections twice. First, when I watched her juicy booty swivel back and forth in the video (below), and again when she accidentally sent me an e-mail intended for Heidegger. She seemed quite excited about talking to a guy with a small wiener.”



grouchyeditor.com Zoe



Nicoletta Heidegger, above, told Rip: “We will show your dick [on social media]. Because we think it’s important.”

Below, Nicoletta (left) and Zoe (right) contemplate sex with Rip’s small pecker. Just kidding. We have no idea what they’re doing. Below the pictures, more random comments from the podcast.





“Most of the [female pageant] attendees, in your experience … come for the freak show aspect of it, to laugh at it, to shame, to mock? That’s OK with you?” 



“I don’t know what’s longer, your dick beard or your face beard.”

“Once you were there and you saw people were taking pictures, how do you feel knowing that there are pictures of you out there? Do you like it? Does it turn you on? Are you worried about your job?”

“They [Rip’s nieces] saw your dick pics. That is the name of this episode: ‘Uncle Rip’s Wiener.’”




One happy side effect of Rip’s interview on Sluts & Scholars: The show’s promotonal Tweet was retweeted by one of Rip’s favorites – 1980s porn queen Nina Hartley, pictured below.





Listen to the full podcast below:






Recently divorced Marlena (above) is a Chicago preschool teacher who blogs at Modern & Blissful. Marlena, like fellow Midwesterner Kat, wasn’t bashful when it came to prying personal, sexual information out of Rip. Some examples:


Marlena: How many women have you had sex with?

Marlena: Do you prefer vaginal or oral sex?

Marlena: How wide is your penis?

Marlena: Do condoms impact your ability to maintain erections and cum?

Marlena: How does having a small penis affect your life?

Rip:  Some women actually prefer a small sex organ to a very large one.

Marlena: I can attest to that! Huge dicks can be painful during extra penetrating positions such as doggie style.



Marlena: Would you ever consider becoming a porn star?


Rip got excited after discussing doggie-style sex, oral sex, masturbation, and spread buttocks, so he decided to hit on Marlena. Alas, she informed Rip that she was “taken” and not into guys with “long beards.” Oh, well.

You can read Marlena’s interview with Rip by clicking here.








Rip attempted to renew his acquaintance with local news anchor Liz (that’s her on the right in the picture above, posing with Rip and another news girl), suggesting to Liz on Facebook that some nude sunbathing might be in order.



Readers might recall that when Rip first met Liz, she learned of his participation in the small penis pageant and was quite impressed.

After that, one of two things happened: Either Rip put his dinghy in the anchor (see below), or someone spent some time with Photo Shop.




I hooked up with some of the college football players living in my apartment building … it was fun.” — Jaye, the model who fingered Rip’s prick



“I’ve had numerous hookups with guys I never dated … these guys are typically hot. A few months ago, I hooked up with some of the college football players living in my apartment building … they’re all hot 18-year-old guys so it was fun.” — Jaye’s post on Facebook


You provide the players, Jaye provides the end zone




Photo (Shop) Fun!



 Kat dangles her panties in front of Rip, who can only enjoy the view


 Rachel doesn’t like little cocks; Rip can only fantasize


 Rip’s dinghy approaches the anchor



Above, Rip. Below left, certainly not Rip. Below right, not Rip but probably could be.

We asked Smallest Penis in Brooklyn contestant Rip van Dinkle to find out if size matters — specifically, to find out if his size matters.

Rip revealed his (not quite) two-inch tool to a bevy of attractive women — about half of them in face-to-face … er, face-to-penis encounters, and the other half over Skype — and asked them to pass judgment.

And because we realize that not more than three or four people on the planet care to read a post loaded with pictures of Rip’s puny pecker, we included eye-candy shots of the girls who ogled Rip’s manhood.

The leering ladies ran the gamut: podcasters, bloggers, a sex writer, a photographer, models, bar managers, some sex workers, and a few “girls next door.” Here they are:

Rachel Khona attended the Smallest Penis in Brooklyn pageant “to giggle at tiny penises and the men who would actually show them.” Khona, a sex writer, then invited Rip to discuss his package on her podcast, which she co-hosted with gal-pal Abbi Stern.

Rachel made it clear on the podcast that she would never, ever consider sleeping with someone like Rip, what with his puny pecker and all. Apparently, Rachel and Abbi wanted from Rip that rarest of things: a male who would actually confess in public that yes, his dick was lacking.


From the podcast:


Stern:  “It’s hilarious that anybody would want to advertise they have a small penis, because I don’t know how they’re ever gonna get ass after that.”

Khona:  “It’s sad. It feels like there’s a finger in you. Sometimes you don’t even know it’s there.”


. khona44    “So what’s it like having a small penis? How big does it get?”


. rip2    “Are you counting limp? For me, that’s not quite two inches.”



Moral of the story:  If you are under-hung, you don’t get to fuck Rachel. But she will giggle at your little dick.

The Photo Shoot:



Photo by Amy Minnick


Rip’s participation in the Smallest Penis in Brooklyn pageant brought him Internet notoriety. But he doesn’t live in Brooklyn; he lives in Minneapolis.

Local photographer Amy Minnick recruited models Asha, Kelsey, and Shawna to pose with naked-as-a-jaybird Rip. The goal was not to flatter the bearded, beer-bellied Baby Boomer. The goal was to depict how a group of sexy ladies might react to Rip and his mini member.

When Rip revealed his private parts to the ladies in these pictures, they were polite enough to giggle at his shortcomings – at least not in front of him. In the picture below, Rip himself was not present, so the girls felt free to express how they really felt — especially with Rip’s organ side-by-side with other, more fortunate males.

Asha was the most enthusiastic model. When photographer Amy needed a volunteer to check out Rip’s manhood with a magnifying glass, Asha did not have to be asked twice: 


asha4Photo by Amy Minnick


Above, Asha zooms in on her subject matter. In the picture below, Rip owns the prick at far right. But you already guessed that.

We can’t imagine what Asha finds so funny. She probably felt sorry for the two chaps on the left.

Shawna was required to strip down to black bra and thong panties. This presented a challenge for Rip. As the possessor of a tiny penis, would the sight of half-naked Shawna prompt a … physical change in him? Would his penile puniness be exposed as a fraud?

In the photo above, Shawna apparently sees something amusing in her wine glass.

Above, Rip conquers a potentially embarrassing boner by concentrating not on Shawna’s “fuck me, Rip” pose in the bed behind him but rather on … a strap-on dildo?

Shawna, who apparently hasn’t seen enough, uses binoculars to eyeball Rip’s junk. At least it wasn’t a telescope.

Kelsey was the quiet, bashful model in the studio. We have no idea what she might have been thinking when she came face-to-face with Rip and his dangling noodle. But her smile seemed to indicate that she enjoyed his birthday-suit shame fame.



Photo by Amy Minnick

Above, the ladies (left to right: Kelsey, Asha, and Shawna) try not to check out Rip’s none-too-impressive sex organ as he serves them wine 


Says Rip, “Mostly, the girls tried not to let me catch them staring at my crotch. They would sneak peeks when they thought I wasn’t looking. I did catch Asha having a look once or twice. They all had to stifle giggles.”






Moral of the story:  We asked Rip if this photo shoot, featuring naked him and four clothed women, was a humiliating experience. “OK, it wasn’t exactly a Playgirl centerfold shoot,” he said. “But hey, how many guys can say they spent three hours on a Saturday afternoon with four chicks ogling their junk?”

A very good point.

Alas, Rip did not get a piece of ass from these ladies. The girls did, however, enjoy emasculating him.




Hats off (pants off?) to Amy Minnick, the woman who took the, uh, interesting black-and-white photos. Not only did the lens on her camera not shatter, but she endured hours of close scrutiny of Rip’s hairy cock and balls. We’re guessing that, outside of Rip himself (and his ex-wife), no one has spent more time staring at his twig and berries than Amy has.

Then again, who knows? Maybe she enjoyed it. Amy is pictured below.

A candid conversation with the small-penis hero about pageants that exploit the male body, Brazilian female reporters, and seeing pictures of your junk all over the Internet.


Rip van Dinkle a Rip van Dinkle b

When a small dive in Brooklyn announced plans in 2013 to produce the world’s first beauty pageant for men with small dicks, the public’s reaction was barely noticeable. Two years and three pageants later, media and the populace continue to be underwhelmed, save for a brief period in the summer during which Internet trolls seize the opportunity to send snarky links about pageant registration to ex-boyfriends and other enemies, along with directions to Kings County Saloon in Brooklyn. 

Perverts and people bored out of their minds eventually took notice of the men who enter these absurd contests, and we recently caught up with one of those men, two-time contestant (2013, 2015) Rip van Dinkle.  Although van Dinkle didn’t win The Smallest Penis in Brooklyn crown (he placed second at the inaugural pageant), worldwide Internet coverage of the event have led many females to view him as the quintessential “short-dick man.”

We sent an intern to interview van Dinkle, mostly because no one else wanted the job. Our intern reports: “Van Dinkle in person is much as you might expect: disheveled, perverse, and lazy. He’s an unapologetic dirty old man. After inviting me into his cruddy one-bedroom apartment in a Minneapolis suburb, he insisted that we watch back-to-back episodes of his favorite TV show, Schitt’s Creek, before commencing the interview.”


“In Brooklyn, they do the man’s smallest package competition – and I’m not saying that’s ugly, I’m just saying that’s different.” Joanne Nosuchinsky on Red Eye.


PLAYBOY:  Before we get started, I’d like to agree on a few ground rules. For example, we’ll be talking a lot about the penis, specifically your penis, and I just wondered which term you’d prefer to use. For example, “penis,” “sex organ,” “phallus,” “pecker,” and so on.

DINKLE:  Sounds good. I enjoy them all.

PLAYBOY:  OK.  I’m sure you’ve noticed there are pictures of your penis on the Internet. Most men might not feel flattered by these pictures, especially since your sex organ appears to be the size of a Vienna sausage. In Web site comments about your penis, it’s been described as “puny,” which our dictionary defines as “small and weak; not very large, impressive, or effective.” Women’s magazine Cosmopolitan called you and your fellow contestants the “anti-Jon Hamms.” The clear implication is: “small penis equals sexually undesirable.” They are attacking your virility and suggesting that you are lacking below the belt. Your thoughts?

DINKLE:  I may not know much, but I know not to argue with Webster’s dictionary or Cosmopolitan magazine.

PLAYBOY:  Moving on … critics have complained about the proliferation of penis pictures on the Internet, arguing that this kind of thing is not something America’s girls should be exposed to, and that no good can come of it.

DINKLE:  I’ve watched Jerry Springer.  I’m aware that out-of-wedlock births are a real problem in this country. If the image of my wiener burned into her brain can frighten just one American girl away from sex, I don’t see how that’s a bad thing.

PLAYBOY:  There was a lot of Web-site coverage of the Brooklyn pageant, including stories on mainstream sites like Jezebel, Cosmopolitan, The New York Post, The Daily Beast, Rolling Stone, Maxim, and The Village Voice. But aside from a few jokes by late-night comedians Seth Meyers and Conan O’Brien, mainstream TV seems to have ignored it. Any idea why?

DINKLE:  The penis frightens network TV.  The vagina does, too. I think the censors will let them say the words penis and vagina, as long as they don’t dwell on them.  They did discuss our pageant on Red Eye, but that was at 3 in the morning. And Kendra Wilkinson giggled about us on her show, but who watches her show?

PLAYBOY:  Yes, Kendra seemed amazed that you guys would actually show your small cocks in such a public setting. For the record, what is the size of your penis?

DINKLE:  Everyone wants to know that. [Sex writer] Rachel Khona asked me that question on her podcast.  A writer named Alicia asked me that for her blog. You can find my statistics on Wikipedia [Editor’s Note: his statistics were recently removed from the pageant’s Wikipedia page], but I’ll save you the trouble: flaccid, about 1.5 inches long; girth, just under 3 inches. Obviously, at times it’s bigger than that. Not that it’s any of your business. Or Wikipedia’s business.

PLAYBOY:  How big are your testicles?  They look small.

DINKLE:  I can’t believe you asked that. How does one measure one’s balls? Weigh them? I suggest you Google my pictures on the Web and make your best guess.


“If they’d been able to get our dicks erect, they probably would have done that. Who knows, they might have even had us ejaculate on stage.


PLAYBOY:  Judging from their comments and tweets, it seems that some famous women have seen pictures of your junk, or at least read about the pageant. Women like Miley Cyrus, Joanne Nosuchinsky, and Kendra Wilkinson all discussed the contest. Have you heard from any of them?

DINKLE:  Certainly not, but I’m sure that after this interview goes out, my phone will be ringing off the hook. And yes, I still have a phone on a hook.

PLAYBOY:  You don’t think most female interest is of a mocking nature?

DINKLE:  Can’t imagine why.

PLAYBOY:  So you don’t feel exploited by the women who run the pageant, or by the ensuing media coverage? For example, the blogger you mentioned earlier, Alicia, posted a high-resolution, huge picture of your nubbin and also published personal information about you, including admissions you made about your sexual shortcomings. Khona said on her podcast that she would never consider sleeping with a “small” man and then asked you about the size of your “small penis.” The photographers who captured explicit shots of your male organs for sites like Time Out New York and Gothamist were young women.  They had no qualms about exposing your genitals on the Internet. Schoolgirls are mocking your “manhood.” Doesn’t it seem like they are all laughing at your expense?

DINKLE:  Could be. But hey, a good laugh is hard to come by these days. Someone suggested that the whole point of the pageant is the revenge of feminists, who are tired of wet t-shirt contests and titty bars: “We’re gonna exploit you guys,” they say, “but we’re not gonna celebrate your body, we’re gonna laugh at it.” Now, the ladies who created this pageant will deny that kind of mean-spirited motivation, but sometimes I wonder …. This interview is boring. Let’s watch some more Creek.


[Editor’s Note: 30-minute pause here to watch an episode of Schitt’s Creek.]


PLAYBOY:  It remains a mystery to a lot of people why anyone would participate in this pageant, which they see as humiliating, degrading. It doesn’t seem likely that men enter for the money, which is just $500. What did you get out of it?

DINKLE:  Well, it’s true that the pageant isn’t as good as sex, but it is kind of a sex fantasy – at least if you have any exhibitionist in you. It’s hundreds of young women at the bar – possibly millions of girls when you count Internet views – having a look-see at your package and then having that image planted in their memory. Now, that image might repulse them, or it might attract them, but it will make some of them think about having sex with you and your little penis, so in that sense you’re kind of mind-fucking them. That’s a turn-on.

PLAYBOY:  Sounds suspiciously like masturbation fodder to us.

DINKLE:  Good point. If you are an attractive woman and you giggled at or talked about my little penis, there’s a good chance I’ve masturbated about you. Hey, it’s only fair.

It’s a win-win-lose situation. I win because I get to show my junk to so many women. Women win because they get to laugh at my pin-dick, and then share that fun with girlfriends. The only losers are other males who feel threatened by the whole idea. They see the contest as a ceding of sexual power by men to women, and they worry that women might also laugh at their dicks. Actually, let me expand that to a win-win-lose-lose situation, because another loser is the male from other cultures, especially Third World cultures. It drives them nuts to see these laughing American women publicly degrading men like me.

But mostly, I entered the thing because I thought it was funny, absurd, and subversive, and I love funny, absurd, and subversive.


“Rip van Dinkle actually had the gall to flash his silver bush-covered dagger in front of the crowd—prompting the young woman in front of me to recoil and whisper to her friend, ‘I can’t believe that just happened,’ even though this is the Smallest Penis Pageant. The Daily Beast


PLAYBOY:  You mentioned the women who created The Smallest Penis in Brooklyn pageant. Tell us about them.

DINKLE:  What is this “us” business? It’s just you and me here.

PLAYBOY:  I’m speaking for the magazine.

DINKLE:  I see. Like Bill O’Reilly doesn’t speak for himself, he speaks for The Factor. Gotcha. What were you asking me?

PLAYBOY:  We — I was asking about the women behind the pageant. Did you sleep with any of them, or any of the female judges, to gain points in the pageant?

DINKLE:  Ha ha. There are some real hotties behind the scenes. Too bad I didn’t sleep with them. They call Bobbie Chaset the pageant “dick wrangler,” can’t imagine why. I told her I was upset that in the first two pageants, the only guys who actually flashed the audience were two dudes with average-size dicks. I thought that defeated the purpose of a small-penis pageant, and Bobbie agreed with me. I told her that I would flash the audience this year, and she encouraged me. She also had to deal with Brooklyn police, who threatened to disrupt the contest.

Aimee Arciuolo, who came up with the idea, is a red-headed hottie with legs that stretch to Tallahassee. She told me, “You have a nice ass” while she was helping me adjust my skimpy costume. She did not tell me what she thought of my pecker, although she finger-brushed it when she was measuring me on stage in the first pageant.

PLAYBOY:  All of the media stories, most of them written by women, go into detail about the contestants’ small organs, but a number of them singled out you and your shortcomings. Some examples: Erin Calabrese of The New York Post wrote, “Rip van Dinkle flew in from Minnesota to shake his shrimpy spigot before 100 onlookers.” Khona grilled you about “your small penis.” The Village Voice published a full-frontal photo of you on stage with the caption, “Rip van Dinkle shows off his small penis.” Misty Greene, a blogger, posted pictures of your member, describing it as a “shriveled, skinny flap of skin he calls a penis,” and wrote that “it’s another game when you get up on stage in front of the media and make an ass of yourself and your ‘manhood.’” On the Web site CaféMom, female readers posted pictures of your testicles and had this exchange: “Where are his balls!?” “Sadly, probably inside the meat hammock.” “HAHA!” Many of these women seem to derive glee from pointing out the puniness of your sex organs.

DINKLE:  I suppose some of them just think it’s funny.  I’m sure others relish the opportunity to turn the tables on men, to judge and belittle us for our inadequate bodies the way we’ve judged and belittled them.

PLAYBOY:  In the 2013 contest, female judges went so far as to actually measure the lengths of your dicks in front of cheering, hooting, picture-taking women. There is a picture on Wikipedia of you getting your prick measured [Editor’s Note: the picture was recently removed from the pageant’s Wikipedia page], which reminded us of Ken Norton having his package evaluated by a slave-buying woman in the movie, Mandingo. We’re guessing that the woman in Mandingo and Arciuolo, who is measuring your member in the Wikipedia picture, got wildly different results. Tell us about that measuring – was it humiliating?

DINKLE:  It did catch me off guard; I had no idea they were going to do that. I was standing on the bar and I felt someone’s finger touching my dick.  I looked down and there was the judge, pressing a retractable ruler alongside my penis. I think it was Aimee, although it might have been Cyndi Freeman, the other judge who also measured me. But like I said, it came out of the blue so I didn’t really have time to feel “humiliated.” Surprised would be a better word. I will say that in the Internet photos, it does look kind of degrading.

PLAYBOY:  In researching this interview – and yes, we actually did some research – we discovered that the pageant organizers considered more than just measuring you guys.  Arciuolo told Gothamist that they contemplated ways to cause you to get erections on stage, but dropped the idea because they “‘couldn’t figure out a way to get them to grow’ in any reasonable or legal capacity.” That strikes us as deliberate humiliation, turning your sex organs into playthings for the crowd’s amusement.

DINKLE:  Tough to get a hard-on in that situation. It was fun, but not particularly erotic to be standing on that bar with my pickle measured in front of a noisy crowd. On the other hand, if Aimee was seeking erections, she damned near got one from me before the show, upstairs in the dressing room, when she was on her knees in front of me, adjusting my sheer loincloth and looking directly at my package. If she’d been down there much longer, I might have poked her eye out – and I don’t mean with my finger.

Aimee said in interviews that the pageant was dreamed up by her and girlfriends, so I’m guessing that when they planned it, she told them she’d damn well measure our wieners. And so she damn well did. I don’t believe the pageant was really for our benefit; I think it was designed to entertain females in the audience, and if they’d been able to get our dicks erect, they probably would have done that. Who knows, they might have even had us ejaculate on stage. The other contestants and I were really, to paraphrase Alfred Hitchcock, just cattle in Aimee and Bobbie’s show.

PLAYBOY:  You were the only contestant at the most recent pageant to intentionally flash the audience. Why did you decide to do that?


“Rip van Dinkle kicked things off … once again flashing the shocked audience. The Daily Beast


DINKLE:  Didn’t I already answer this question? I told Bobbie that if I paid money to attend a small-penis pageant, I’d feel cheated if the only dicks I saw were big ones, or average-sized ones, which is what happened in the first two pageants. I told Bobbie that I thought I should give the crowd what they wanted, which was an unfiltered look at small cock, and she agreed with me.

PLAYBOY:  The contestants have been a diverse group; this year, there were two blacks, two whites, and an Asian dude. Interestingly, no Latin men. The crowd also seemed multicultural: black girls, white girls, Asian girls, most of them college age. You are not exactly “college age.” Did you feel old on stage?

DINKLE:  Oh, sure. I can just imagine these girls describing the pageant to their friends afterwards: “One of them was old enough he could be my dad’s friend. Or my grandpa’s friend. So gross. He was totally buck naked — look, I have pictures of his little pee-pee!”

PLAYBOY:  Has your fame, or rather infamy, spread to your home state of Minnesota?

DINKLE:  Not that I’ve noticed. Some local news anchors were at an event and I gave them business cards with information about the pageant, but I never heard back from them. They did, however, pose for pictures with me. Years ago, I was at a happy hour with a woman I worked with, the stunning Sarah Wasem, and we were all discussing Bart Simpson’s “nude scene” in The Simpsons Movie. Sarah asked, “Did they show his little pee-pee?” So Sarah, if you’re reading this, yes, I was in The Smallest Penis in Brooklyn pageant, and yes, they showed my little pee-pee. You can Google the pictures.

But so far, I haven’t gotten any comments. On the other hand, I might get recognized in South America, France, or Asia, because this little pageant gets Internet coverage everywhere.

PLAYBOY:  Have foreign journalists contacted you?

DINKLE:  I didn’t win, so no.  One cutie who said she was a reporter from Brazil approached me backstage. She interviewed me and took notes while her friend, also female, recorded me with an iPhone. I had to wonder what this Brazilian reporter was thinking. Something like: “Here’s a foolish American male with his  little noodle dangling out in front of me.  I am going to have fun writing about it for my Latin readers. Foolish American male.”

I told her that Brazilian women were gorgeous, which she seemed to like. She asked if women had ever commented about my small penis, which was interesting because I was wearing see-through shorts and she hadn’t commented about my small penis.  I gave some reply about how women won’t tell men something like that to their face; instead, they’ll gossip about dick size with their girlfriends. When I read her story, the English translation was garbled and hilarious. She also kept pressing me for my real name, which I wasn’t prepared to give out.

She also took pictures during the pageant. There is one shot of me that ran with her story in which my crotch has a black box pasted over it. You tell me – if you are doing a story with pictures about a small-penis pageant, would you cover up the small penis? There is another shot of me, stolen from The Village Voice, that appears on a German site with my dick pixilated. Pretty silly, since you can still see the shape and size through the pixels.


[Editor’s Note: Here is an English translation from the Brazilian journalist’s report – “Rip Van Dinkle, for example, traveled to another state just to be part of the dispute. ‘I know that my penis is small, no one ever told me that because women are very educated, they prefer to comment on those things with her friends,’ he joked.”]

PLAYBOY:  Earlier, you admitted that you fantasize about the women who’ve seen you naked. Any favorite fantasy ladies you’d care to share with us?

DINKLE:  Oh, lord, I’ve probably jerked off to every woman mentioned in this interview: Aimee, Bobbie, Cyndi, Rebecca Long, Rachel Khona, Joanne Nosuchinsky, Sarah from work, those WCCO anchors — there are stains on my bedsheets for all of them.

PLAYBOY:  That’s pretty disgusting.

DINKLE: Good point.

Some of them make it just too easy. Aimee, for example, described to Playboy in great detail how she gets fucked by small-dick guys, something about pillows and her bare ass. [Editor’s Note: The actual quote from Arciuolo is: “The sex involves putting pillows under the butt to help the angle. But it’s still hard to feel anything. It’s a quick smack-smack-smack-smack-smack, then the guy usually gets up and runs away in shame.”] If you don’t want other small-dick guys to masturbate about you, then don’t tell a national magazine how you got pumped by a small-dick guy.


“Women are metaphorically castrating you in print – or in the case of the pageant, on a stage – for other women’s entertainment. Don’t you agree?



PLAYBOY: Most of the women who write derisively about you, or post explicit pictures of your nudity, are young enough to be your daughter, or even granddaughter (Dinkle is 57). They seem to have little regard for the concept of your “manhood,” and even less respect for their elders. Misty “the size vixen” posted pictures of you naked and invited readers to emasculate you in print. Blogger Alicia posted explicit pictures of you and included what she termed your “very revealing” admissions about your sexual failings. She also shared your real name with readers. In a sense, these women are metaphorically castrating you in print – or in the case of the pageant, on a stage – for other women’s entertainment. Don’t you agree?

DINKLE: Well, I think I already answered that question. I think a lot of women have had bad experiences with men, have been lied to or treated badly. When they find someone like me that they can sort of kick in the nuts, very publicly, they like that. Misty, who you mentioned, sent me a message one night that was just six words: “I want to hurt your balls.” I guess I serve as a form of therapy for these women, standing in for their fathers, bosses, ex-boyfriends, or whichever man has angered them.

PLAYBOY:  You’ve been in two of the three pageants. Will you return next year?

DINKLE:  Not likely. I didn’t get the feeling that the “old gang” was all that thrilled to see me this year, possibly because I keep opening my trap for interviews like this one. I also wrote articles about the pageant for Maxim.com and for a women’s magazine in Australia, which might not have pleased some people.

I’ve never really bought into the whole anti-body-shaming propaganda about the pageant, and that bothers some people. Maybe I’m too cynical, but I think the vast majority of women who pay attention to the contest aren’t there to “support the little guy,” they are there for the same reason Rachel Khona went: to laugh at small cocks. Also, I am just too damned old for this shit.

PLAYBOY:  Nothing change your mind about returning for a third pageant?

DINKLE:  They do have a hard time getting contestants. They advertise the hell out of the pageant, and they increased the winnings a bit this year, but they still only get about five contestants every year. In three pageants, counting returnees like me, there have been a total of 13 guys willing to compete – including out-of-staters and one guy from India. It’s not easy for them to find what they really want, which is an adult American male who will actually allow them to un-man him on stage, very publicly, showing his face and his tiny package so that American women can enjoy his diminishment.

On the other hand, if they get desperate for contestants next year, and if Aimee is willing to get down on her knees again, well ….

Small Penises Brought To You By:

Aimee Arciuolo, above left, told the press that getting balled by a man with a penis “the size of an acorn” inspired her to create The Smallest Penis in Brooklyn pageant.

“Dick Wrangler” Bobbie Chaset, above right, is the woman charged with recruiting contestants.

For ladies unable to attend the pageant with their cell-phone cameras, professional photographers were on hand to document the proceedings for Internet exposure. Photographer Melanie Rieders, above left, captured a “money shot” of Rip for Gothamist.

Photographer Lauren Spinelli, above right, nailed a full-frontal shot of Rip for Time Out New York.

Note the similarities between Ken Norton’s public humiliation in Mandingo, right, and Rip’s public measurement by Arciuolo, left. We’re guessing there are no similarities in their penis sizes.




Brazilian reporter Anna Gabriela Ribeiro, pictured above examining her cell phone camera, asked prying questions and took revealing pictures. Her story appeared on numerous Spanish-language Web sites.




New Yorker Misty the “size vixen,” above, was unimpressed by the pageant, and unimpressed by Rip’s package. She wrote that Rip’s nude exposure comes “at the cost of his respect as a man,” published his real name, and continued: “Nothing says to the world, ‘I am a little dick loser and proud of it,’ like entering yourself into the small-penis contest of the century. I gotta hand it to the bar owners. Something tells me that there is a woman behind all this (and there is but I am opting out of calling her out).”




Podcaster and sex writer Rachel Khona, above, grilled Rip about his small penis. Khona explained why she went to the 2014 pageant: “We came to giggle at tiny penises and the men who would actually show them off.”

Just before they interviewed Rip for their show, Khona and Abbi Stern (pictured below) shared these thoughts with their listeners:

Stern:  “It’s hilarious that anybody would want to advertise they have a small penis, because I don’t know how they’re ever gonna get ass after that.”

Khona:  “It’s sad. It [sex with a small penis] feels like there’s a finger in you. Sometimes you don’t even know it’s there.”

Stern:  “He [Rip] probably would like you looking at photos of his tiny penis.”

After chatting with Rip, Stern called him a nice man and expressed her appreciation for his attitude about having a tiny dick:

Stern: “If you have a small penis or something, it’s better to like own it and be able to like make jokes about it … because I think if anything, other people are probably more uncomfortable with it than you are. Yeah it would suck, but if everyone was like, ‘That’s John [Rip] and his small dick’ — nobody would even bother.”

“Despite commissioning this story … we are fairly conservative and do not do full-frontal nudity.”Women’s Health & Fitness editor Rebecca Long, above, explaining to readers why she chose not to run (supplied) photos of Rip’s nubbin in a story about small peckers – specifically, a story about Rip’s small pecker – that was published in December 2013.



“On a scale from one to 10, we would say that your penis is a three.”

– Sex therapists Celeste and Danielle, above, answering a questionnaire about Rip’s penis for Women’s Health & Fitness, in which one is “very small” and 10 is “very large.” So much for lying to spare a guy’s feelings.



“It’s a small-penis contest, but you can’t show your dick.”

– Lissette Padilla, above and below, describing pageant rules to viewers of The Young Turks.

We guess Rip didn’t get the memo. 




Below, Kendra Wilkinson and her Kendra on Top gal pals share a laugh about the penis pageant and the guys who would actually “show it”:
