The big penis and mens' sexual health source, increasing penis size around the world.

Some members are measuring their girth in the wrong way...

The fact for me is ¨Let´s give credibility to PE community¨!!

So you are saying that if a measure tape is touching the skin all around, it’s not a correct measure? I am all confused here.

I agree strongly with this sentiment. In an earlier thread I wrote:

***

“No one would lie at an anonymous forum such as Thunder’s Place — what’s to be gained?”

Often, in the same breath that someone says something like this, he pleas for posters to be more supportive of their PE comrades. Wait a second: if the social emotions — pride, embarrassment, anger, etc. — somehow cease to function in online forums, then what good is to come from complimenting our PE buddies? The answer, of course, is that we *do* continue to care about what others think of us in “anonymous” domains, however irrational it may be. A dude *does* have something to gain at Thunder’s by proclaiming himself, honestly or dishonestly, to have The Monster Cock, or to have gone from The Acorn to The Above-Average. Others will look to him (rightly or wrongly) as a PE guru and he will be praised to no end. And besides, even disregarding social factors, it’s clear that many guys exaggerate their penis size to themselves: anonymous penis-size surveys consistently yield larger size estimates than surveys done by physicians, despite the fact that smaller guys probably hesitate to participate in the latter type of survey.

I’m just tired of hearing that people’s PE testimonies should be taken as self-evidently honest. There’s value in skepticism: if all posters went around exaggerating their sizes, each individual, aware of his own *true* size but not of the other posters’, would end up underestimating how he compares to the general male population. And the last thing we need here is more anxiety about the relative sizes of our pricks.


Please :donatecar to Thunder's Place to keep it running.

I agree with you PARA-GOOMBA, great to have members like you in this forum.

Sparky, for me that´s also the correct way of measuring, touching the skin all around, but without exaggerating your size.

I need more opinions please.

For you which is the correct way of measuring girth? Touching the surface of you penis with the tape but releasing it freely would be precise?? or you prefer to press the penis with the tape??…

You should measure just tight enough to touch the skin. Any tighter makes no sense. When you see a seamstress measure people you don’t see them cranking into a person with one foot on their chest trying to get the tap measure as tight as possible.

The thing is somewhat pliable, it’s not like you are measuring a 2x4.


The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

I agree exaggerating your measurements is stupid.

Girth Measuring Guidelines

1. Take a measuring tape or a string that does not stretch.

2. Achieve full erection.

3. Wrap it around the penis in the middle and in such a way that measuring tape or string touches the penis surface all the way around.

4. Take the measurement.

If you are going to measure like this I would recommend using a string rather than a tape. Then place the string along your ruler without applying any tension at all.

Sadly we have had guys that make BS claims about size and gains, pathetic, but their it is. From a record keeping point of view it really doesn’t matter as long as you are consistent. However their are other concerns. This can be discouraging for new guys, and could even promote others to measure creatively in order to get a bigger online penis. This whole placeing the string as loosly as possible thing sounds great but I’ll bet dounuts to dollars that lots of guys are magically gaining girth from over doing it.

Personally I am odd in this regard. I measure my girth snug, don’t push the ruler in very hard, and round down at all times. I expect that I could add a 1/4” on my length and 1/8” on my girth by adjusting my measuring techniques to the other extream. Would this somehow make my johnson bigger?

A question for everyone. Do you think guys that came to Thunder’s with little-dick insecurity issues are more likely to use creative measuring? Do the old timers think the new guys are more likely to get “creative” with their measuring?

My $.02:

Use a tailor’s tape. I haven’t priced them, but I doubt they cost more than a couple bucks.

First, check your tailor’s tape against a measure you know is accurate. I’ve heard of tapes being off. BTW, you should also check your “made in China” ruler to make sure it isn’t out of whack. If it is, note how much and adjust accordingly.

While absolute numbers don’t matter for tracking progress, if your pet cougar eats your special 1/8” or 1/4” friendly ruler, a replacement accurate measuring device may cause frustration or confusion.

At Thunder’s we generally go by midshaft girth when referring to “girth” in general. For me this is easy to find because it is the smallest location on my shaft. My right CC dimples in a tiny bit. Others could use a convenient skin blemish or x distance back from the circ scar as a reference point.

I measure by getting a 100% erection (preferably close to orgasm, which maximizes the CS), wrapping the tape initially somewhat snug, then mostly releasing the tension and allowing it to settle to where it wants to be. This is hard to explain. It isn’t barely touching skin, nor is it strangled tight. Girth is more difficult to measure precisely and accurately than length.

I’ve found my base girth varies. The CS plays more of a role in determining size there. I can gain or lose a bit depending on how engorged the CS is. My midshaft is pretty consistent.

Important: Take a few days off from all PE before measuring. Otherwise you’re probably including some fluid retention in the skin, which is misleading. If you want to track both pre and post-session measurements, great, but don’t confuse them.

Also, when you’re done measuring, measure again, and then again. Get a feel for how consistent your measuring technique is and also how much your penis varies. Measuring, like anything, requires practice. You can’t expect to pull out a ruler or tape once every 6 months and apply it exactly as you did before. Measuring often won’t make your dick grow any faster, but it will make you proficient enough to notice when something is changing.

I couldn’t have said it better than sparky91 has explained already, twice. Excellent explanation

Very hard to explain, but you just gave as good an explination as can be without a hands on demonstration. Expect that some of the confusion in this thread is purely semantics.
