Have you heard the news? Pete Davidson, Ariana Grande's newly acquired fiancé, "exudes big dick energy." Also known as BDE, big dick energy is a new name for an age-old concept. People who have big dicks, you see, are super confident. But they're quiet about it, because they don't need to show off. Their dick has them covered.
At least, that seems to be the working definition that people on Twitter have been using since a tweet about Davidson's BDE went viral. (It's a tweet he's all too happy to "confirm," btw). And, apparently, you don't need to have a big dick, or even have a penis at all, to have BDE. According to many on the internet, celebrities like Cate Blanchett and Rihanna have loads of BDE.
But what is BDE, really? Is it a real thing? And how much does it actually have to do with penis size? Read on to see what three sexologists think about BDE (spoiler alert: It's a real thing).
