Another rant about measuring

12

I’ve had the same concerns, as I recently posted. I too lost ~.25” from side to top measurement. Of course, any method used and reported here, is going to be subject to the “honor system.” Any of us can jiggle things to squeeze some extra “length” from measurement, and of course we can simply LIE about it here ;-) That said, I truly believe that most of us are being honest and seeking a reliable honest measurement.

Some time back, someone posted about using a cardboard tube, like a paper towel roll. A lengthwise slit would be made and measurements marked on it. I have not tried this, but I did get a (cheap) pump which has a clear cylinder and ruled markings. I haven’t tried it in a while, but I will do so and compare.

Bottom line is, I believe some type of cylinder pressed into pubic area would most closely represent the “Vaginally Useful Length” or VUL. This length should be somewhere between NBP and BP ruler measurements, as the cylinder can be bone-pressed but not as far as the ruler end. I will test this tonight if possible.

One other variable factor is the angle at which we view the ruler or other measuring device. Because our glans are curved, it is somewhat similar to trying to measure the diameter of a ball with a straight ruler. One solution that occurs to me is to make a cylinder with a sliding insert, kind of like the “push up” popsicles if you will, or like the caulking tubes used in caulk guns. The tip of your dick would push this flat, sliding insert which should give you the most accurate, repeatable measurements.

hmmm…. maybe I can design & build an inexpensive device, the “Penis Tracker” and everyone can buy one & know exactly how we stack up against each other ;-) Of course, would have to make a super-size DLD/BIB model……

(note: just thought VUL sounded cool, not to disrespect other bodily orifices ;-)

Glad to see some serious comments on measurement. And honest as well.

Wesb, I used a similar device to that tube. I got a kitchen towel type roll, cut off the last 0.5inch or so (having a ring ) and slit this ring to make a strip. Then I overlapped the ends to form a ring again, but a little narrower. I covered the ‘hole’ of the ring with paper (you know, like covering a jar with paper, pulling the overlapping paper down the sides and fastening with a rubber band) and then placed this ring in the tube. It could slide up and down the length of the tube.

Two problems. I had to ‘cut open’ the first couple of inches of the tube owing to girth at base, and second as it was only card I couldn’t push very hard without bending the no longer solid opening. But it worked OK.

I envisioned several contraptions similar to a transparent ‘Maxtender’ but I’ll leave it up to you to come up with the prototype.

PS Check out Stills photos for an honest measurement. The only difference to comments made above is that the ruler is not on edge, which would not allow us to see the measurement.

An example to follow for pic taking!

Ok now how do you measure girth?Can you use a string and wrap it around then measure the string?Also can you give definitions for bpel and the other terms that are used while measureing whike hard ,flaccid and girth.Thanks Newbie.

Get a cloth measuring tape to measure girth.

Terms:

ELBP= Erect Length Bone Pressed
EL= Erect Length
ELNBP= Erect Length Not Bone Pressed
EG= Erect Girth
FL= Flaccid Length
FG= Flaccid Girth

and I’m sure you can figure out the combo’s.

Here’s what I use. Full length is 9”. The small black line below it is 8.75”. And the line of tape below that is 8.5”. Doesn’t hurt much while measuring and its good for consistent measuring.

I've posted on this a billion times........

on this board and the old forum.

There never will be a univerally accepted method.

I will say this, and there are those here who can “confirm”

I put my length at about 9 1/4 to 9 1/2, bp. I can get 9 1/4 nbp too.

IF (and I said IF) I measure like about 12 board leaders I saw on member pics,
I am OVER 10 inches bone pressed, sometimes 10 1/4

Yet, I don’t consider myself a real ten incher yet, though most ladies think I’m much more.

I have sort of slipped a bit for ego, and now often measure on top slightly to the right of
center of the pube base.

I do think my very first original measurement back in 1999 was conservative and I might have
cheated myself on true size (length, girth is a no brainer, just where to measure it). So, I
use that original measurement to check gains, what few there are.

I am doing higher angle pulls now and using bib’s marvelous stretcher, and my flaccids now
average 6-7 inches. I think I am going to creep up to the 10 inch mark, what I call
“legitimate” 10 inch, since I could claim it today, and some days easily so.

But. at a girth over 7 and 6. 3/4 in the middle (not jelqing), I am ruinning the risk of being
TOO big for most women. I am just now learning about this. Yes, women do accomodate, but
I would rather them be comfortable with maximum feel, and I am beginning to wonder about
all this “big” stuff.

Most women are NOT size queens.

Sorry, I got off base here.

My point, as usual, is to measure however you feel comfortable. I know I am bigger than some
guys who showed a pic with any sort of reference point, but I never say a thing, because
it’s personal.

Just measure the same way each time to get accurate gains information.

Peace and love to all

Re: I've posted on this a billion times........

I would never change the way I measure to track gains for the simple reason that consistency is so important from measurement to measurement. I don’t think we will ever get a sound measurement that everyone can agree on. The most important thing to me in measuring is that I perform the measurement exactly the same each time in a flaccid state. This has been the only way for me to keep a very good watch on my gains. As I said before this is not bragging rights it is only for consistency. I have always measured flaccid on the right side of my penis so this is how I will always do it, this method has given me the consistency needed to watch for the slightest change. As far as bragging rights go, I have a while till I can brag…maybe lose 50lbs and it will come sooner:) Non-Bone Pressed erect measurement is the bragging measurement in my opinion but who will I brag too, Jen?

I could give a fuck about bragging rights. I measure from the same point on my pubic bone (the side, where it is flat and level) each and every time. The only reason I measure is to track gains, no other reason. As long as my dick makes my wife happy, I don’t give a rat’s ass if someone is bigger than me. There will ALWAYS be someone bigger than me/you, and I accept that.

DLD and others are correct

Ya’ll basically say what I said.

One must be “consistent” precisely to get a handle on gains. I measure different ways and
the variance is amazing. But to look at gains, I measure like I did in 1999.

So, DLD and others are correct. It does not matter for “gains” how you measure, just that
you measure the same way. That is the bottom line of PE.

Size can be in the eye of the beholder.

Shit, you’re right. The first ever 9” cigerette.

About measuring. There’s a difference between measuring for gains/consistency, and a difference for what size you claim. Personally I like “bone pressed flaccid stretched” for tracking gains. When I hit 9” erect with a light bone press, is when I’ll start claiming 9”.

Tell me about it! I can go from feeling like shit to feeling great in one totally obsessive measuring fest.
