Been measuring wrong whole time?

Been measuring wrong whole time?

Hi I think I been measuring incorrectly because I been using tape measure. With tape measure I’m 7.5NBPEL and 7 3/4 BPEL(almost 8 inches) with a ruler I’m only 7.5 BPEL and a little over 7NBPEL. Why is there such a difference is it because of the ruler?

I have found this online:

“If it is a school type ruler which does not have zero at the end of the ruler then yes you have two measurements as above. If it is an engineer’s rule with zero flush ground to one end then there is only one comparison to account for.


My rulers do not have zeros on the left side so I feel I’m losing length.

Correct me if I’m wrong.

Does your penis have any bends or curvature?

Start 6.8” x 4.7” (4.9" BEG)

Latest 7.8” x 5.0” (5.2" BEG)

No I really don’t have any curves. It’s just straight forward.

The reason a Bone-Pressed erect measurement is more accurate than measurement with a tape is that the end of the ruler is always in the same place. The placement of the end of a tape is much more random.

For the measure tape I removed the metal bit at the end for accuracy and I got a slightly different measurement. As for the ruler I bought a engineering ruler that doesn’t have the gap before the starting zero and my numbers came back a little under 8 BPEL which is an increase. So removing the starting gaps on both the tape and ruler seems to give me a better reading. Comments appreciated.

Whichever tool gives you a more consistent measurement every time you use it is the better one for tracking your PE Progress :)

Please :donatecar to Thunder's Place to keep it running.

Because tapes follow more than one dimension, hard rulers measure your actual length. I had this same problem too. My tape measure readings were always higher: best to use a wooden ruler if you want to track progress.

Use a ruler, it’s more accurate; unless you have severe curvature. This is common advice here.

I used to use a tape, then when I switched to a ruler I lost major length. The tape was lying to me. Now I only use a ruler.
