girth measuring and its 'truth'?

girth measuring and its 'truth'?

As probably most of you guys do, I measure my fella with a ruler. My ruler is a 12 inch one.

I measured today (just then after a PE session with a ‘final’ erection) exactly 7 inches up the right hand side, 7 inches down the middle and about 6 3/4 up the left side. Sound ok so far yeah?

Then I measured my girth at midshaft using a tightly wrapped around piece of 12 inch string (I presume you guys also use string right?) and my measurement was around 5.1 / 5.2 inches. Again, so far so good.

Then I decided to measure my length again, but this time with the string. I was expecting a measurement of 7 inches (as the ruler indicated) but no, the length of the string was 7.4 inches.

What I’m getting at is, does measuring the girth with string actually provide a ‘false’ measurement then?

there was a difference of .4 of an inch between my ruler and the string on the length measurement.

your thoughts/advice appreciated as always guys

The string follows the slight curves of your penis, thus giving a larger measurement.

Are you stretching the string out well? Maybe you’re not stretching it straight enough, hence the longer measurement.

Or do you have a curved penis?

My cock has an upward curve starting from midshaft. Whenever I measure it with a measuring tape the measurement is usually up to half inch more than a ruler measurement, probably because of the curve. It’s kinda diffcult for me to measure my erect length with a ruler because of the curve. I always try to find a way to measure with a ruler though, but I think if my cock was straight I would get a longer ruler measurement

make it happen, make it long, make it happen, make it fat, make it happen, make it hard, make it happen, make it last, make it happen, make it fast, make it happen, make it real, make it happen, make you feel, make it happen, make it happen, make it happen

A tailor’s tape is really the best way to measure girth. They’re flexible and don’t stretch. Moreover, you can read the result while it is on rather than trying to hold a point on a piece of string and transfer it to your ruler.


I noticed that the first time I measured. Most string will stretch a bit. I’ve found that measuring girth with a paper tape from IKEA works great! Never stretches. I would think that a tailors measureing tape (cloth) would also work well.

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"

Some rulers have a “dead spot” at each end that do not include the measuring increments. Did you take that into consideration?

measure girth with a tape measure (cloth). it is the most accurate way to measure girth. Also when measuring try not to wrap the tape too tightly as it will give you a false measurement. Wrap it just right. Not too tightly nor loosely.

YEah, you might want to stay away from the string measuring. There is too much “play” in a piece of string. It stretches rather easily.


If you measure after taking a day or two off you will see more gains, usually. I never measure right after but you might also try giving it 12 hours to recoup. I have found that after a secession that it tends to draw up in length and any girth is just swelling and not real gains.

I had the same problem with a string and I got a tailors tape measurer and I was about .5 inches smaller in girth than I thought I was. Stay away from the string!

BTW: I used a string for measuring and got me a tailor’s tape measurer because of this thread..
Result? No change.. I’m getting exactly the same measurements :)

IOW: You can measure correctly with a string (but it surely is more likely to get a good measurement with a tailor’s tape measurer than with a string).
