Most women, when they do the dumping, tend to opt for bland yet inoffensive explanations such as "I'm not the right place at the moment" or "I'd like us to be friends".
UnHung Hero is a documentary or 'cockumentary' as Moote calls it, where he tries to go around the world to find out how other cultures view penis size and asks his ex-girlfriends about whether it mattered when they were together.
There are some rather shocked-looking people on the street who are asked for their opinion, and a fairly hairy moment when he visits a group of men for options to make his penis bigger and is confronted with a scary needle containing the fluid that will 'pump' it up.
"Who's going to be with me after this documentary airs?" Moote wails, but beneath the wry, funny look at penis size is a real question waiting to be answered. Some answer it predictably "People who say penis size doesn't matter don't have a big penis," says one brash man, while another lady tries to explain: "It's like opening a gift and sometimes you have to pretend that the gift is amazing, when it isn't."
Moote was dumped by his girlfriend in a rather spectacular way. He proposed to her on a Jumbotron at a UCLA basketball game and the video of her walking off went viral. Offscreen, she then told him - among other reasons - that she couldn't marry him because his penis just didn't do it for her.
In an interview with the New York Post, he said: "When we started the film, the point I wanted to prove was not only does size not matter, but also that I don’t have a particularly small penis. I think that we really saw an opportunity to answer a question that I think was bothering a lot of guys and I think it was really bothering me."
He also says that men should take comfort in the fact that there is no such thing as an average standard or measurement. "When you’re measuring an erection, there’s an average for it, but there’s no set number. If you put on 10 pounds it’s gonna take off a centimeter. If you’re not having a particularly good day with circulation, it’s going to affect it. If you’re feeling stressed out or your heat doesn’t work in your apartment, it’s going to affect how large it is."
Ultimately, the documentary is a damn funny watch and it aims to tackle (no pun intended) one of the biggest causes of angst for modern men: penis size.
What did Moote learn from it all? "I don’t feel like I have a really small penis, I just know it’s not a particularly impressive or special penis. But it’s my penis, I love it and it’s great. We hang out all the time. But I’m still insecure about it."
