Poll: Do you measure sitting or standing

MODS: Please move to Main.

Though there are tens of threads on the topic, I have not been able to find a definitive poll asking this question. There was one poll that asked what the correct way to measure was, but that is a very different question and most people did not vote in it. I think it is a very important question. It skews BPEL numbers by up to an inch, and more commonly by about half an inch. Now, since we all measure consistently it is not crucial to measuring personal progress, but it is crucial when we compare to averages and distributions.

Who knows what % of the Kinsey survey measured sitting and standing? Who knows what % of our own survey (Pre PE length) measured sitting?

If we could combine the results from this poll here with the results of the length poll above, we could have a more meaningful average number and a more meaningful distribution. It kind of hit me like a ton of bricks that I have been measuring sitting all this time, while many others have been reporting standing. It is a rude awakening but I’d like to know exactly where I stand to recalibrate personal goals.

Thanks for voting. If we get enough participation I will recalibrate the Tplace length poll for both sitting and standing to give a better comparison for everyone.


Start: 6.6bp x 4.875eg, 2006: 7.2bp x 5.00eg (5.5 base), 2009: 7.6bp x 5.25eg (6.0 base)

The .5” to 1” difference…which position typically gives you a longer/shorter reading?

Sitting down makes me longer, but I first measured standing up, so for continuity I always measure standing up.

In my personal experience and in almost everything I’ve read here, sitting gives a longer measurement. Without this being standardized there is no way to read any of the data out there.

If you’re not standing up with your dick parallel to the horizontal plane you’re not measuring correctly, since that’s the only position where you can get a proper 90 degree angle.

Correct or not is not relevant to my inquiry. Just interested in the actual methodologies used here.

And the issue of your ligs tightening up and limiting the amount you can press into your fat pad when you press your erection paralell to the horizontal plane??

Place the ruler 1/4” or so higher right?

standing up…….spell check ok……fix and post.

I measure standing with my dick pushed down to be parallel to the floor. Pushing my hips forward gets me a slightly longer measurement, so I do that to ensure that my measurements are consistent. The most important thing, no matter what general position you measure from, is to do every little “tweak” to maximize your measurement, so that you won’t be fooled into thinking you grew in the future due to “improved” measuring technique.

Yes. Read the original post.

For reference measuring I stand up straight.

But sometimes its fun to sit down and measure BP as it gets well over 8 inches :)

Has for your extra length bone pressed I think sitting you can push it in much further to the bone has to standing however nbp mine is only 1/4 extra sitting.

What Para-Goomba said.

Measuring standing up and thrusting forward is also what I believe I can actually use during sex. I can get just under 8 5/8” inches sitting, but it would be difficult to get all of that during sex.


Creating my monster. Start (3/01/06): BPEL-7 3/8", EG-5 1/4". Current (11/01/09): BPEL-8", EG-5 7/8". Goal BPEL-8 1/2", EG-6 1/4"

About 14 months total PE time. I'm very inconsistent.

I always measure standing up straight. Sitting down, I gain about a ½”, but laying down I lose .75.
