Question on how you guys measure

Question on how you guys measure

When you guys do your measurements do you try and pump as much blood into your dick as possible or do you just get a normal hard on? I have noticed that I have a couple of different lengths, normal hard on and then if I edge for a bit it will obviously be larger, I guess I feel like I’m cheating if I edge then measure. Because that’s not what my normal hard on will look like right out of my pants. I don’t know maybe I’m putting to much thought into it.

Start Oct 30,2005: 6.75"x5.25"BPEL

Nov 20,2005: 6.93"x5.375"BPEL

First Goal 7.5"x5.5"

Get the best erection you can, otherwise your measurements will be inconsistent since your “normal” erection changes from one day to another.

Stats (bp) 2004/08/19 8.0 X 5.5" 2005/08/29 8.2 X 5.8" Goal - I am good for now

Yeah, get the absolute best erection you can. The problem is that if you do a “lazy erection” measurement, you will surely fool yourself into seeing false gains later by measuring “better” (i.e., with a stronger erection). For the same reason we suggest that guys should absolutely jam the ruler to their pubic bone, to ensure they can’t eke out false gains simply by pushing harder in the future.

Further is there a standard way to measure penile volume? I guess I can improvise with a pitcher of water and measure the overflow.

I also have a question about measuring - I realise ultimately it only matters to the individual where consistency is concerned, but is measuring along the side of the penis valid? It seems like effective length to me. And that way I don’t have to contend with the “fat pad” even though I don’t have one anyway, although there is that ligament.

Another question - do you guys measure standing, sitting or lying?

I measure sitting with dick parallel to the floor, nbp

I stand when measuring. Excess skin and my testicles would easily get in the way if I sat down.

Make sure to make your dick straight out, or you lose a bit of length. Parallel with the floor is the most accurate.

Did you know America ranks the lowest in education but the highest in drug use? It's nice to be number one, but we can fix that. All we need to do is start the war on education. If it's anywhere near as successful as our war on drugs, in no time we'll all be hooked on phonics

I’ve been thinking about measuring lately. It’s come up because I really want to measure again (haven’t remeasured since doing my starting measures) and I got to thinking about how people are posting lengths like 6.435- you know, extrapolated to thousandth’s of an inch. Then it dawned on me. Don’t use the ruler *visually*, but rather just use it as a “dead man” against which to lean your rod and then bring something else down the ruler to where the end of your penis hits. Then you’ve got as accurate a measure as possible if you then mark the ruler at that spot. From there, you can just set the ruler down and determine which 32nd the mark is nearest. Whip out the calculator and PRESTO- a very accurate measure of your dick.

I too also think you should measure the most absolute raging unassisted hard on you can come by. That way you have a standard which you achieve at each measure. If you can’t get it there then wait to measure until you can.

And I too measure standing up with dick straight out.
