Hmmm, have I been measuring girth wrong?
I started PEing back in October of ‘05. I started out at roughly 7 BPEL and a girth of around 5. I PE’d for close to a year and I was nearly 8.4 BPEL but my girth hadn’t really changed much. I always measured girth using one of those sewing tape measure cloths that could easily wrap around my penis. I remember wrapping the cloth around real tight when I measured girth. I always felt that my girth was bigger than 5. I recently just started back with PE and I no longer have the measuring cloth that I’ve been accustomed to using. I just have a wooden ruler. When I went to measure my girth, I wrapped my ipod headphone cord around my penis and marked the spot and then measured the cord with the ruler. It came out to be roughly 5.5 inches. I did this several times to make sure I was getting an accurate measurement and all times came out to be around 5.5 inches. I also wrapped a piece of dental floss around and cut the floss where it met the end on the wrap around. I measured that and it was 5.5 inches as well. I think my difference in measurement from a year ago when I was PEing was that I maybe wrapped the measuring cloth too tight around my penis which made it consistently at 5. In the new way that I’m measuring girth, I’m just letting the cord or floss rest comfortably on my shaft, with no space in between, but not too tight. My question is, is this a more correct standard measurement of girth? It appears that I’m closer to my girth goal of 6 inches than I expected. :)
