The ruler, the penis and the pelvis tilt


The ruler, the penis and the pelvis tilt

How do you guys position your pelvis/hips when measuring EBPL or FBPL from above the root, standing up (i.e. the “standard” techninque)?

1. Pushing your ass backward/sway-back (like a woman in high-heel shoes)

2. Pushing your ass forward (the opposite of 1)

3. Neutral/straight (in-between 1 and 2)

I´ve never given pelvis tilt much consideration until recently. I was fed up with the inconsistancies of my length measurements so I started to pay attention to my pelvis position.

What I noticed was that I got the best measurement when pushing my ass forward (2). When measuring sway-backed (1) I got the smallest EBPL/FBPL-number and when my pelvis was in the neutral position (3) I got a measurement that was in-between 1 and 2.

Easy conclusion: You get the biggest EBPL/FBPL-measurement when tilting your pelvis forward. To many of you this is not an amazing discovery, I know, but to me me it was quite an eye opener.

There is a “problem” with this whole thing though, at least when trying to create an uniform and standardized way of measuring length: Measuring instructions usually not tell us how we should tilt our pelvises. It´s a factor never mentioned. In the very few cases where I´ve seen pelvis tilt mentioned at all, the instructions are usually something like “keep your pelvis in a neutral position”. Err…come again? Why exclude pelvis tilt from the instructions or why proposing a neutral position? So you could gain or lose 0.5” the next time you measure?

IMHO, one should tilt the pelvis forward/pushing the ass forward to the max for two important reasons:

A. It gives you less inconsistancies between measurements.

B: It gives you your true, practical, sex-situationlike, absolute max EBPL/FBPL-number. (To be perfectly honest, how do we position our pelvises when having sex? Do we sway-back, making our dicks disappear into our bodies and between our legs? No, we push our asses forward, trying to show as much dick as we can. I dare to say that no man is standing sway-backed when having a beautiful woman - or man - kneeling before you, giving you a blowjob. We tilt our pelvis forward to the max in situations like that, and that´s why we also should measure with max forward pelvis tilt.)

I’ve found that I measure longer when seated, so I’m not sure which one is correct. Both standing and seated are “useable” lengths, depending on the sexual position.

I too measure slightly longer when seated. Measuring standing up seems to be the more “standard” way though (according to surveys, member posts etc), so I think it´s a good idea to stand up when measuring - at least for comparison´s sake.

I push my ass forward when measuring (not excessively much though). If I’m 7.5” that way, I’m always 0.25” more when sitting and measuring. So now for instance, I’m 7.75 when sitting. Yeah, you get the point.

I measure what shows standing in a neutral position. Just want a realistic measure of what it looks like in the locker room or while I’m getting dressed. No need to exaggerate. I already know I’m small. What’s the use of kidding myself.

Do you usually have an erection in the lockerroom? =)

"You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts."

Actually, I don’t measure in the Locker room. Hee hee, was referring to the flacid state. However I don’t understand why I wouldn’t get an erection in the locker room. Just shy I guess.

When you measure when seated, it is kinda like pushing the penis downward while standing. It gives us more length. I always measure with my pelvis tilted forward to make sure that it is consistant everytime. Another thing, you need to watchout for is leaning over too far to get a longer reading from the ruler. This is easy to do; I have caught myself doing this several times.

1.25 inches down, 1.75 to go!!!!!! For 8" NBP

If you hold the ruler over the dick you HAVE to lean a bit over it to not measure too short =).

"You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts."

It doesn’t matter to me in what position I measure as long the ruler shows some gains… :uhuh:


I agree that you should do what maximizes the reading therefore subsequent readings that show progress are not due to “cheating”.

I have always maintained that consistency is king for meaningful measurements. I think the most reliable way is to “cheat” from the beginning and be consistent from there on. There are a lot of guys here however that are obsessed about comparing measurements. They go through all kinds of rituals to ensure themselves that they aren’t “cheating”. I think its unnecessary, there is not likely more than a 1/4” difference in length between a maximized “cheat” measurement and one with a neutral pelvic position.

Check it out guys, no need to have a big dick if you ain't gonna use it!!

I actually measure it reclining on my back, because I’m “handicapping” myself for the shortest realistic NBP length that’ll ever be presented to a lover: anything “extra” I get from standing or generally being upright is just a bonus…

Thanks. You illustrated my point perfectly.

Anytime, good sir Doctor!
