Best way to measure girth.

Hello all and happy Friday the 13th,

Girth is the most difficult for me to measure accurately. Usually I cannot sustain a 100% erection for a long enough time to wrap the tape around and record the measurement. I have tried the tape, the string, strap of paper or cloth, but it all fails to accurately and consistently measure girth. If I measure ten times I will get ten different measurements. I guess I should record them all and calculate the average, but I always record the largest measurement. I know that a cock ring could help me maintain a long enough 100% erection, but I do not have one and don’t intend to get one.

My question is whether anyone here has found a fast, accurate, and consistent way to measure girth? How do you measure girth?


"The Lord giveth, the government taketh away."

hrabia:

It’s really tough to get that reading, isn’t it?

I take three measurements and choose the average, but I’ve started to think that the highest number is the one that should be recorded. Isn’t that the standard for BPEL measurement?

I know that some guys get to their maxxed erection level for BPEL, and now you’ve got me wondering if that’s the level they record for EG; it would make sense.

Good question.

I now have a cock ring, but for girth I found it very easy, while standing, to place my balls behind my legs and then close them together.

This tourniquet action keeps the penis hard, as well as draws the angle of the erection down - all easier for measuring and pic taking.

Very interesting, think that I’ll try this for my next measurement taking….


Start 2/1/03 FBP: L: 3.25", G:3.00" EBP: L: 5.85", G:4.25" 7/7/03 FBP: L: 5.50", G:5.25" EBP: L: 7.00", G:5.25"

I haven’t tried it, but I imagine “morning wood” is a good time to measure without it going down too fast. You don’t need a “cock ring” just go the tha hardware store and get a 2” or so 1/4” thick o-ring.

don't use a tape

I used to use a tape until I was advised by someone here to use a string for a more accurate measure. I got a piece of dental floss and carefuly tied knots in it so that they were exactly 5” apart. When I measured myself this way, My previous 5 3/16” girth went to 5”. At least when I make a gain nowadays, I know it’s a “real world” gain.

Any bodybuilder who measures his arms on a regular basis can tell you that a 1/2” wide tape has the potential to skew your results a bit. But as they say in the biz, “the floss don’t lie” (okay, I don’t remember exactly what business it is that says it, but I’m sure *some* business says it, right? C’mon guys, work with me here…)

Just a thought.

I just made a molding of my penis for the wife (a dildo). It was easy to measure! But…. It can be just as difficult to maintain an erection for the molding as to maintain it for measuring. I did not have a cock ring either, but fashioned one out of a strip of theraband about 3/8 inch wide and 15 inches long. It actually ballooned up bigger than I usually am. I need to post a review of the molding product when I get time.

Hmmm, I was thinking just the opposite the other day. LOL. I find girth very easy to measure with a tailor’s tape you can get for $2 at Walgreen’s. Length is a whole different matter, because erection quality can vary so much.

Width is very easy for me to measure because my width remains more or less constant from 85 – 100% erect, so I don’t have to get a super erection to get reliable results. My girth is almost perfectly uniform up and down the shaft, so exact placement is not critical either.

I get very consistent results with a tailor’s tape, unless my girth REALLY HAS fluctuated; which does happen from time to time. Sometimes when I add length, I lose a little girth and vice versa. This is an accurate representation of an actual change, however, and not a result of measurement inaccuracy.

Mushroom,

Try measuring your girth with a string and putting the result against a ruler. Then compare that with a tape measurement. I think I may have lost track of what I was really trying to say in my last post, but the fact is that I measure consistently smaller with the string than with the tape. I think this discrepancy is a general rule, else I’d not have been advised to do the string in the first place I suppose.

It measures smaller because string (and especially floss) has such a small surface area that it can easily dig slightly into the skin instead of remain on top like it is supposed to, and it is hard to consistently mark the exact spot where the string overlaps, and then line it up with the ruler without introducing some error. A tailor’s tape is both more accurate, and definitely more consistent, in my opinion. I am also quite sure that the doctors/nurses use a tape rather than a string in the non-self-measured size surveys, so you have a better reference point if you use a tape.

I use a piece of napkin, about 1” wide, works well for me.

It’s settled then. I’m 6”!

I’m a tailors tape fan too….


Start 030104 EBPL: 6.25" EG : 5.6" Mid LOT : 7:30 GOAL: 0.25 in any direction...."I'm not picky"- length would be nice "GIVE ME A %&#'N INCH OR GIVE ME DEATH"

I like a hacksaw blade with a sawing motion.


It's better to think you're doing something than to sit back and wonder what might have been Start: 12/2003 EBPL: 7 15/16 EG: 5 1/4 Now: 12/2004 EBPL: 8 1/2 EG: 5 5/8 (pumped is 5 7/8 mid, 6.25 base) FL: 6.25

MrP-P

I will quote your tag line for the rest of my life LOL
