I was recently told that a sigma bond between two 3p$\mathrm{3p}$ orbitals is possible but a pi$\pi$ bond between the same orbitals is not possible.

Although I was not told the reason, I am speculating that a pi$\pi$ bond between them is not possible due to a comparatively larger size in comparison to 2p$\mathrm{2p}$ orbital.

Is it the same reason why S2$\ce{S2}$ does not exist  ?

Can someone confirm the theory and give reason for the same ?

Confusion regarding sigma bond and pi bond

I was recently told that a sigma bond between two 3p orbitals is possible but a pi bond between the same orbitals is not possible.

Although I was not told the reason, I am speculating that a pi bond between them is not possible due to comparatively larger size in comparison to 2p orbital.
