A good way to consistently measure length
We’d all like our measurements to be as accurate as possible, so that we can tell more quickly how effective our current PE program is. However, accurately and consistently measuring BPEL and BPFSL has always been a problem.
The traditional method is to push the ruler into your pubic bone. This is strongly affected by how much pain you are willing to endure and what kind of ruler you use. And then there is the issue of exactly where on the pubic bone the ruler should sit.the arguments keep flying.
Here’s my solution: use a moderately thick paperback book to measure. Stand up, and hold it at a 90 degree angle to your body with the binding facing down, resting on your penis: assuming the book is right side up, the cover will face left. Then hold the binding down against your penis and push it back into your pubic bone. Look down, note where you end up, and measure that distance. Since the book is much larger than a ruler, it won’t hurt to push it right up against the bone, it will always sit in the same place, and you can get results consistent to the millimeter.
Now, some tricks and tips..
Regular pulp paperbacks are about 18cm (7 inches), so the large, ambitious, or optimistic should use a trade paperback.
Don’t use a really short book (ouch) or a really long book (you may not be able to see your penis).
You can skip the “measuring the book” step if you add some tick marks to the cover. Every 5mm or 1/4” is about right.
Make it a book you enjoy so it is plausible for it to be left laying around a lot.
Since you can push harder, you will probably get a larger measurement from this than from the ruler. Make sure to measure both ways for a few days. So you know how to convert one to the other and can accurately measure your progress from the previous system.
