New form of measurement - SL

New form of measurement - SL

I’ve an idea for a new type of measurement to help keep track of gains. Not to replace any existing methods (which are great) but a new one to add to the information that measuring gives back to you. Obviously photo’s help with this also but I’m not sure if I want to do that as it could be dangerous in certain situations. Having some porn pics floating around is one thing, if your gf or a friend finds them it’s no big deal it’s porn. I’m a guy. End of story. I’m not sure how I could explain some self pics of my penis though, without some good bullshitting or embaressment (“they are not my penis” I’m in the gay closet lol).

Either way measuring is a good way of keeping track because it’s so exact, ideally measuring and photos together are the best way.

I’ve seen alot of progress pics from the vets who have gained alot and shown which part of the penis has grown. It seems like in the first stages of PE and even in the middle stages when gaining length that the glans/head gains some length. You could look at this at just gaining erection quality or actually growing new tissue. Either way it’s more inches on the ruler therefore it’s a gain. I then noticed once the person had gained near an inch, or more.. that the length between the base and the shaft has grown. This to me is the true nature of PE gains and it’s what I want. Some of the guys have superimposed the pre-PE pic over the new pic so you can see exactly where they have gained and once they gain over an inch you can see that the glans/head starts .5 inch further away from the base. In other words, the shaft has grown.

I want to be able to measure how much the shaft is growing seperate to the glans. In order to keep track of this (and any gains I make) I will be measuring from the base to where the glans begins. Even a .2-.4 inch gain in this area is something. I think when you see gains in this area you have trully arrived into the PE gains club.

Is there anyone who already measures like this? Is there a name for it?

I want to call it SL (Shaft length) but it conflicts with stretched length. What about NGL (Non-Glans length)? Or SOL (Shaft Only Length)?

Whatever it’s name, I think it will help to know how much I am really gaining. Because when I gain length I want the area in between the base and glans to grow as this is the area of length I am not happy with.

It will be interesting to see how much of “1 inch gained” is shaft gain and how much is glans gain. And how that ratio changes as you grow more, or if it’s different for different people. That’s assuming anyone else bothers to measure this way, but I think it will help me so I’ll give it a go. :cool:

This is interesting, I’m totally with you on that CubanB. Sometimes even a slightly different quality erection could make the glans 1/4-1/2” shorter, depending on it’s general size of course. Keeping track of the shaft length minus glans length (or whichever alphabet soup abbreviation it will receive) is a great way to determine length gains! I think it would be more encouraging to measure gains this way because glans size fluctuates with some, and can give them the impression that their dick is shrinking!

Maybe if someone has attained a length right below their target, they could work on some glans enlargement to reach it. ;]

Doki-Doki LOLI POP CHAN! Sugoi Desu~~~

I think it might be kind of a downer calling it SOL…kidding :)

On a serious note, I think that’s a fine acronym for it, “Shaft-Only Length” would make the most sense.

And I agree, good idea for a new measurement!

Scream

Thanks. The only thing about it, if you consider how long it takes to get accurate measurements for the whole penis.. so that you are sure you gained even .1-.5 inch. Over 2 weeks or a month period. It’s difficult.

So measuring this every 2 weeks or per month seems like it’d be a downer. Maybe it’d be best to keep this one for every few months or more. Taking 2 photos from the same angle and overlaying one on top of the other would be the best way. But this way should be good too. On measurement day I’ll be doing this and then when I look back to a year from now.. it should be interesting.

I don’t think SL/Shaft Length measurement is needed. Many people will tell you they don’t gain glans length or find it very difficult to. I think the overall length measurement is fine. A gain in glans length will be probably immeasurable. even 5% gain in say 1 inch is only .05 inches. I understand the hang ups about photos, I used to have it and to some measure I still do since my significant other doesn’t know about it yet. It’s not like its an explicit photo showing your whole face and body nor is it of you having sex. A photo of an erect penis is just that, some will be hard pressed to ever recognize it.

Goal 8.0 EL 6.0 EG Asian - Thai 5' 10" uncircumcised

The head/glans does grow. I am not going off what people have said in here in posts (which may or may not be true when applied to themself or others).

I am going by pictures of gains posted by people from this forum. That I have seen with my own eyes. When I first joined this forum I read a huge amount in the first 2 weeks. Hours and hours of reading, trying to find the biggest gainers, if small pre pe penises can gain, if big pre pe penises can gain, why some people fail, if manual exercises can gain you as much as devices will, and basically trying to study the difference between people who gain alot and those who don’t. At this time I saw alot of picture topics (and ALOT of pictures of penises lol) which was quite a shock when it happened so suddenly to be staring at strangers cocks so much. Anyway..

The reason I haven’t replied until now is because I’m too lazy to go back and find each guy who posted his pictures to find the ones I’m talking about. The newbie enthusiasm has worn off. When I find them I’ll list them though.

And just now I was rereading Shunga’s picture thread and he is one with really good comparison shots where you can clearly see his glans has gotten longer over time. At first his shaft didn’t grow much and it was only after he gained alot of glans length that you could see clearly large glans and shaft gains because he superimposes both images using photoshop. People in the topic even comment on how his glans has elongated.

I can’t post the picture here, because it’s against the rules. If you can read his topic and can look for yourself, the pages that has the picture of his glans growth are page 2 (post 25), page 6 (post 86) and the pages for his shaft and glans growth (and his big gains) are page 10 (post 146) and page 16 (post 233 and 239).

Shunga’s progress thread

The pictures are pretty clear. But how do you know if Shunga is just a fluke? Or was it because of his routine? That’s the point for this SOL measurement! To keep track. Of course if you take photo’s as well as he does then there is no need. But at this point I don’t take photo’s and getting the ruler to line up as consistantly as he does would take some skill. If I did start taking photo’s I’d still want to measure, cause the more information you have on your gains, the better in my opinion. I believe my glans has elongated a little but unfortunately I didn’t measure it when I first started.

Knock yourself out— sounds like an overcomplification to me.

I’ve stated ad nauseam that he only measurement I find useful is BPFSL [Flaccid Stretched]— it requires no cooperation [EQ]— just a strong gentle pull.

So you don’t measure your girth?

These are what I measure. I guess I like overcomplications. In 12 months time I want to look back and know exactly where and how I gained.

BPFSL 6.8
NBFSL 6.35
FL 3.9
FG 4.6

NBEL 5.9
EL 6.4
EG 5.85
Base Girth 6.3

SOL (shaft only length) NBP 4.3/BP 4.8

I only measure once a month though, doing this every few days wouldn’t be ideal.

Yes, I do measure girth— but I take into account that EG depends upon EQ.

I get the rationale— what works on the shaft per se- but since I find that it’s fairly clear whether or not a movement is expanding the glans versus stretching out the shaft I’m guessing that unless you’re going to severely limit your exercise choice in the interest of PE ‘science’ then why bother? ;)

Listen, do what you need to— it simply seems that adding new metrics muddies rather than clarifies the matter— like the notion of NBPFSL— where do you draw the NBP line?

I’m using this method for a long time now, I thought about opening a thread yesterday about is, but you opened it first, it’s a very good method to track gains.


Conquering my goals.

Thanks.

Good question, it does get tricky. I just try to guesstimate. Like I look at the spot where I would measure if it was erect, hold the ruler there (but to the side a little) and then stretch it out and move to ruler back to so that it’s at the spot. Not easy to be consistant that’s for sure. If the measurement seems funky (like 1 inch more or less difference then the BP) then I’ll measure again and try to be better. I see your point, it’s not the most useful of measurements. But maybe one day I’ll look back and be glad I measured. Good luck in your gains also.

Really? That’s cool. :) Glad I’m not the only one who wants a really long shaft. I’m not too worried about credit for the type of measurement as it’s pretty simple, I just made to the topic more just to share the idea for it.

For example, I’m really curious about the average shaft length compared to the average glans length. Unfortunately because not many people measure it is hard to know and there isn’t any polls or surveys about it. I’d like to know what the average shaft and glans length is. And after 1-2 inches of gains from PE, does this percentage change in many people. And if it’s only from hanging or ADS which makes the shaft grow more, or the glans etc. For some people they might only care about having a large measurement on the ruler, but I want a really long shaft. 5.8 girth makes it look shorter then if I only had 5 inch girth. And seperate from gains, how much does glans length vary? Is the glans of an 8 inch penis alot longer then the glans of a 6 inch penis?

Maybe a poll about stating your length and your glans length would do it. It sounds complicated though. And I don’t think as many people care about this as I do. Doh.
