Google reveals a number of "dick(-)string" exx.  It seems to mean essentially "ability to have or maintain an erection; (hence) potency; penis."

One or two posters use it as a personal insult.

The only context I can put it in is the anecdote in which I first heard

"My friend had surgery -- he got an inch of his dickstring cut out.
That may not seem like much, but when you look at all the screwing he
gets over ten years, he's being shorted a whole lot of tail."
