Measurement Day Woes: How To
Hello everyone, I’m here again with some questions after “graduating” from the newbie routine -first six months of PE- , with visible and palpable gains. SO! As I understand, the common way to measure is standing up, while erect, and measure around mid shaft for EG, from base to tip for NBPEL and pressing down on the fat pad into the bone for BPEL. So I do this, and jot down my results in my personal progress log, and then I realize the site has a progress feature where I can input my data! So I go ahead and read how to properly input my stats, and I read that:
A) Measurements should be taken after a 2 day hiatus from PE
B) Measurements should be taken lying down, pressing down into the bone
Both pieces of information were completely new to me, so I decided to do it right and, after a 2 days pause from PE, I laid down, got my tape out, and proceeded to get myself erect. I measure my EG, all is ok, no discrepancies from the standing up measurements, but then came the length measure: according to the one I took while standing up (a week before), my BPEL was 16cm/6.4in, but my lying down stats fluctuated between 14.5-15 cm ?? I stood up and measured again and, sure enough, stats show 16cm BPEL. All this got me thinking: Am I doing this right? How much have I really gained? Is it common to “lose” some length while lying down, does the shaft sink a little into the body or what? Please, help me understand what is going on!
Also, speaking of measuring day: how d you do it? Since mine is ruler shy, I have to get erect, measure, get 100% again and measure again, etc. I do measure like 4 -5 times and sort of average the results, and that-s what I write down in my log. I searched the forums but couldn’t find a FAQ on measuring, save for what I found out on the progress input instructions.
I hope you guys can help a newbie keep on gaining!
Thanks in advance!
