It's man's most-pondered question: Does size matter? While there are social and scientific explanations of the varying size of male genitalia, I feel as though none of them truly answer the question for the individual.

On July 19, Logo TV will air a marathon of ABC's short-lived sitcom Don't Trust The B In Apartment 23, including eight episodes never aired during the original run. Why should you care?
