Measuring question

Measuring question

I have a very basic question about how to measure BPEL. I have tried to find the answer in the forum, but either I’m stupid, or the question hasn’t been addressed. Specifically, when do you take the measurement?? I find that just before ejaculation, I gain some extra length. Is this the right measurement, or is the measurement done with an erection?? Also, is there any limitation on how hard to press with the ruler??

I know these are very basic questions, but if we are going to make comparison measurements, I would just like to be sure we are all on the same page.

Thanks.

The key is to be consistent with your measurements. That way you can accurately track any progress you’re making. An inability to track this progress will keep you from learning how well your penis is responding to the routine you have chosen for yourself. As a result you will not be as successful.

I take my measurement at the fullest erection I can get without there being any special circumstances. No cock rings, no pumping right before, clamping is also a false indicator seeing as the swell post clamp is not permanent, but rather temporary, at least for the time being. I wouldn’t measure right before ejaculation, it would count as a bad measurement to try and consistently gauge yourself with in my book.

As for pressing in, press in as hard as you can without hurting yourself. Either way you choose, the key is to be consistent. It’s easier to be consistent if you always press down as hard you can. If you’re doing a measurement, take it a few times. Then take the highest one. That’s been my policy.

It’s not as if your bone is going to give. If you feel like your cheating, you have to realize the rest of the male population who doesn’t PE usually takes their measurement in their favor (from the side or the bottom). So you’re definitely not the one “cheating”. If you let me get creative with my ruler I can get close to 10”. Almost all women are incapable of accurately perceiving actual size anyways, the accuracy is just for yourself.


2005 - BPEL 6.0"x MSEG 4.5" (BEG 4.75"/HEG 4.625")

2010 - BPEL 8.0"x MSEG 5.75" (BEG 6.5"/HEG 5.875")

Goal - BPEL 9.0"x MSEG 6.5" (BEG 6.5"/HEG 6.75")

BB,
I absolutely agree with theskyisthelimit post above. The measurement gives you a good estimate on where you stand with others, BUT you are really using it to track your progress. So be consistent on how you do your measurements.

Take care and happy gains,

I fully understand and agree with the need to be consistant, regarless of the measurement style. I was just more curious about comparative measurements with other people. They would be meaningless without some guidlines. LIke you said, I could probably measure 14 inches, as long as I can wrap the ruler around the end and back to the beginning! :)

Another variable is, do you measure with the penis exactly 90 degrees to the body? That would surely introduce variance.

That’s pretty much the standard of measurement yes, measure your penis straight out.

But the main idea is just to stay consistent with it. If you want to measure differently fine, but measure the same different way EVERY time.

The guidelines for taking a measurement:
- you are on a rest day
- have the best erection without any aid (no cock rings, no pills)
- measure it standing up, with the shaft at 90 degrees
- keep the ruler parallel to the shaft, on top of it, pushing as hard as you can into the pubic bone (around 1 cm above the shaft)

As already said, the primary reason for measurements is to track your progress. In this respect, you may have your own measuring protocol as long as you are consistent.

I certainly understand the desire to compare yourself to others, but I warn you that it could be misleading. There are quite a few variables that influence the momentary length - both biological and regarding measurement technique - so the measurements won’t be as accurate as we would think it should. I was accused of over-thinking measurement issues, so I won’t plunge into details again. I just mention that such things like shaft angle deviation, or tendency of pushing out the pubic region alter the measurements with 1/4”, not to mention erection quality with at least 1/2”.

I was wondering about that. Why should you have to measure it without any pills? It might be best to measure it while using Viagra. If you use viagra every time you measure that is. That way you can ensure you have one of the best erections you can get, as a lot of guys (myself included) seem to have troubles keeping it up strong while going for that ruler!

This makes sense if you’re going to do it once every month or two. Might as well call a girlfriend to come while you’re at it (don’t let it go to waste :D ), measure it before she arrives and welcome her with a rock-hard erection. :P

Also, since I never even thought about using Viagra (and never will as long as I can get it up naturally) I don’t know the dosage, but my guess is you wouldn’t need more than 1/4 of a pill for measuring purposes.

I also have trouble keeping it up while fiddling with the ruler, but fortunately looking to a sexy pic of a hot woman is just enough. If you really need a pill, that’s it…

The idea was to have the best “natural” erection, as we cannot demand that all people to use enhancers. Pills induce a stronger erection than the natural one, so it results in augmented size. Still good for tracking progress, but kind of cheating when compared with others not using pills.

When you are younger (less than 30), all you need is a “good thought” to get rock hard, but as some of us older folks can confirm, there is not just “soft” and “hard”! There is every stage in between. And every day doesn’t yield the same result.

But then, maybe I’m the only “older” guy here. ;)
