Exaggerating penis size perpetuates penis issues

I’m was just thinking about how many different ways there are to exaggerate the real size of our penises on Thunder’s and how this perpetuates our own penis size insecurities. I am guilty of some of these myself. I’m just wondering if there is anyone who is not guilty of doing any of these at one time or other…

Ways sizes can be exaggerated:
-Length measurements made with a flexible tape measure instead of a solid ruler- often left very slack
-Penis squeezed aganst the ruler to get more length
-Photoshopped pics or pic angles to make penis look large
-Straight up lying- hey it’s the internet, lying is easy
-Rounding up (sometime alot) - I find it interesting how many penises that are exactly 6”,7”, or 8” in length and
5”, 6” in girth. I don’t think anyone ever rounds down.
-Poor measuring technique that favors larger measures
-Measuring while squeezing or wearing a cock ring or clamp- man, I would love to have that measure!
-Measureing the penis at an angle that gives a maximum length
-Measurements made after a PE session- not a normal erection in my opinion

I know measurements, regardless of how you do it, are supposed to be for your own PE progress documentation, but the numbers that are posted from exaggerated measures affect everyone on this board, to some degree, psychologically.

Anyone have anything to add to the list? I’m sure I missed some.


Start: 8"BPEL 5.9" girth Current: 8.5"BPEL 6.5" girth Goal: 9"NBPEL 6.7" girth

I round down.

Good points.
I personally measure slightly differently from everyone else I think. My BP results are the same whether I stand up or sit down. It’s just harder to get a proper NBP measurement standing up for me as the angle of your hips can vary your measurement.

I measure sitting down. Never round up or down. Just get the nearest measurement.
My girth measurements used to be inconsistent as I had to have a rock hard erection to get a proper reading so I used to round to the nearest 1/4” if I couldn’t keep hard while getting the tape measure in place.

You forgot to mention the placement of the ruler. At the side makes me 9” BP (!), a 0.5” increase, so it’s definitely not an accurate reading compared to on top of the penis. I guess this can fall under measuring “angle” though it is a little more ambiguous.

Anything has to be better than the way they measure in porn. Tape under the balls? Tape and penis at different angles? C’mon man.

More precisely, I round my measurements down when writing about them in my posts (i.e. 5.39” becomes 5.3”). The measurements under my PE statistics on the site and in my own Excel spreadsheet are recorded as accurately as possible.

@Suziesun12:
Why do you care? You’ve got 8.75”x6.5”.so.. Do you feel threatened that since it all comes down to numbers “on the internet” that those “liars” crowding their way up to your category make you seem less glorious? You need that margin of difference, “the middle class”, to be more accurately represented? Can’t have the peasants wearing knockoffs that look like the real thing; courtiers might just have to scramble ever upward to evade consonance with lesser beings.

People make mistakes out of ignorance. That’s why there’s info here on how to properly measure. If any one of those liars bothers ya then send ‘em a link to put them in their place. But good luck ridding the internets of idiots; especially of the breed with a penchant for using a ruler for emotional temperance.

Take their lead and you’ve won.

I have a left curve and a u curve — I straighten both of those out to measure. I do it as consistently as possible. I take multiple measurements. I don’t record a new measurement until I see it several times over a period of days/weeks.

You may consider this straightening out of curves as cheating.

On the other hand, I want to measure my growth progress, not air.

That is pretty much the point of measuring on Thunders — a way to track progress to see if our routines are working or need to be tweaked.

P.S. congrats on your large unit.

The only thing I do it’s measure with a tape but my size that I put here on thunders it’s with the metal ruler, Only one thing some guys do say that the tape it’s better for curved penises like mine, also my friend you a fantastic size, nothing to worry about it.

Me too. I’d rather cheat myself to get a lesser reading.

You mean, some men do not measure accurately, and some actually… exaggerate?

I feel so psychologically wounded. I think I’ll go lie down. :rolleyes:


For Lampwick, becoming hung like a donkey was the result of a total commitment.

I generally round down for recording. I do keep up with my size after a workout, but I don’t use it as my “size.” It is just human nature to want to be bigger and better. Thus, some folks are going to “stretch” things a little.

I’m a member of a different health forum that covers a variety of health-related subjects. On one of the sections relating to men’s sexual health, every time I visit that forum there’s always the same, exact type of thread somewhere on the page: “I’m 14 and my penis is 7 inches - is this normal?”; “I’m 13 and I have an 8 inch dick - is this normal?”; “I’m 15 - my penis is 7.5” and 6” around - is this normal?” etc, etc, etc. I can’t imagine it being the same user creating multiple accounts just to troll. All these young teenagers are over-estimating their penis-size; they suffer from low penis-size self-esteem in their real lives, so they lie about their penis-size in their cyber-lives to compensate for their inadequate feelings. What these kids don’t realize is that they’re depreciating the penis-size of everyone who views their deceitful threads online and their own.

Personally, I have told the truth on Thunder’s Place about my penis-size the entire time, as this is a men’s forum and hence, there aren’t any girls to impress. However, I’ll admit that I haven’t told the exact truth in my private life with girls:

Before I began PE, my penis-size was aprox. 5.8” in length. However, I typically rounded up to 6” when I told a girl my penis-size. My penis-size now, having done PE for half a year, is up to roughly 6.7”. However, I rounded up to 7” when I told my girlfriend about my penis-size. And, I don’t think that I’m being entirely dishonest, but I’m not being entirely honest either.

>Penis squeezed against the ruler to get more length<

Penis straightened against the ruler to get more consistency.

I agree with the rounding down thing, if you state a size that is rounded up, it might take you another 6 months to actually hit it.

>Measureing the penis at an angle that gives a maximum length<

Holding the unit at 90 degrees to the body is probably best, imo. It means that you can pretty
easily stay consistent, and therefore measure gains as opposed to angular variation.

>Measurements made after a PE session- not a normal erection in my opinion<

Clearly you should have a couple of rest days minimum to measure. People sometimes state their clamped girth or length. I don’t quite see the point.
