Take a look inside 7orbetter.com—-before you let one inside you.

Yesterday, I took my first trip around the big penis dating site 7orbetter.com, an exclusive online community for men with penises that measure seven inches or longer, and the women who love them.

The site is the brainchild of Steven Pasternack, a Miami, Fla. entrepreneur who is no stranger to the dating woes of the well-endowed. Pasternack is also the man behind sugardaddie.com, an online dating site “Where the classy, attractive, and affluent meet.”

Pasternack’s anatomically-based venture, launched a couple of weeks ago, “is not a joke,” Pasternack, 45, confirms. “Believe it or not, this is a very important thing for some women. They’re looking for the size, but they still want a well-rounded, quality guy.”

Pasternack says the inspiration for the Web site came “from a female friend of mine,” who confided in Pasternack that “she wants to meet quality guys, but when it comes time to go to bed with the guy, she’s sometimes disappointed with how the guy can please her,” says Pasternack. “She said it would be nice to know up-front what she can get from them.”

The Web site has already attracted nearly a thousand women like her: There are currently 875 female members listed on the site. There are also 869 men, indicating that there are as many men out there advertising big penises as there are women who want them. “The men are interested in signing up, obviously, because they’re proud of what they have. They’re glad they have a place to say hey—-I’ve got eight inches, or nine. It’s not a matter of bragging. Some women can’t handle what they have, sexually, and it turns out to be a disappointment for [the man]. They want the women to know up-front what they have—-so it works both ways, actually.”

The member profiles are on par with most online dating sites—-age, height, weight, smoking or not—-except that men are also asked to report the length of their penises, and whether or not they are circumcised. Men must claim seven inch penises “or better” to be eligible to use the site; there are no sign-up requirements for women.

Pasternack arrived at the magic number seven after “consulting a few female friends,” he says. “Most of them had a preference for six-and-a-half or seven. I rounded up to seven.” Men aren’t asked to report girth. “Girth—-that’s a good question. We’re considering adding that as a category,” says Pasternack.

Pasternack insists that beyond the dimensions, 7orbetter.com is a dating site like any other, and obscene language, revealing photos, or prostitution dealings will not be tolerated. Still, Pasternack admits that revealing one’s penis size alongside his snorkeling interest might be considered inappropriate in any other venue. “I don’t think it would sit very well with eHarmony,” says Pasternack. “Match.com, I don’t think they’re ready for this either.”

But how do women know whether a man’s self-reported penis size is accurate? The Web site’s terms of use notes that “Any information posted on 7orbetter.com’s website must conform to reality and be accurate in its description and content.” If you are a member of 7orbetter.com, and you do meet up with a man you believe is misrepresenting his penis size, you can always report him to Pasternack. Pasternack says that once two or more women report that a man isn’t packing what hes reported, he’s off the site. “Sometimes, a person could be acting vindictively. You never know,” says Pasternack. “So we wait for two separate complaints to revoke his membership.” So far, no members have failed to measure up.

As for Pasternack, who is married, 7orbetter.com is strictly a business interest—-you won’t find Pasternack’s profile, or his measurements, on the site. But if 7orbetter.com were around when Pasternack was dating, would he have been eligible? “That’s a very personal question,” says Pasternack. “If you must know, yes. Yes I would be.”
