How To Measure Your Penis
For any penis enlargement endeavor, measuring the dimensions of the penis is important for recording your gains. More importantly, measuring your results helps you to see which routines work the best for you and to ensure that you are making good progress toward your enlargement goals.
However, men who are new to penis enlargement are often at a loss as to how to properly measure the penis for keeping accurate and consistent records of penis gains and growth over time.
This guide will give a detailed overview of some of the most common methods used for measurement and recording data, as well as define some common terms and definitions for penis measurement.
Measuring Your Penis
1. First, get a pad of paper, a Notepad file or a spreadsheet on your computer to record the date of measurement, flaccid length, flaccid girth, erect length and erect girth. Select something you will record with on a regular basis.
2. Second, record your flaccid length and girth using a tape measure or a ruler and string. Ensure the tape measure or string are taut when measuring.
3. Third, get a hard erection and measure and record the girth of the penis using the same method as above. To measure length, use the bone-pressed erect length (BPEL) method.
4. Be sure to measure consistently. Some men choose to measure after performing their penis enlargement routine. Others may measure their penis on days in between performing exercises.
Ultimately, you should select whichever method works best for you. The most important part of measuring is consistency and using the same method.
Tips for Penis Measurement
• While date and time of penis measurements do not have to be precise down to a fraction of a second, it's good to keep track of the date and time that you measured your penis.
• While erect length measurement can inform you of the functional length of your engorged penis, flaccid length is important for those all important first impressions when you strip off.
• Erection quality can fluctuate day to day, so it's important to get the best erection when measuring erect length or girth.
• When measuring flaccid length, pull the flaccid penis taut and straight out in front of you. Measure length using a ruler.
• The length is the measurement of the distance from the base of the penis to the glans (head). Some may prefer to hold the ruler or tape measure alongside the left or right side of the shaft. Others may utilize BPEL (Bone-pressed Erect Length) to accommodate for any increase or decrease of fat tissue over the pubic bone.
• The girth of the penis, whether flaccid or erect, is most commonly measured with a tape measure to track the circumference of the penis at the mid-point along the length of the penis. Other methods may instruct you to measure the thickest point of the shaft: the method does not matter so much as using the same method every time.
• In case you do not have a soft tape measure, you may use a string and wrap it around the penis to determine the circumference of the penis girth. Using a ruler or tape measure, simply measure the length of the string that contacted the penis.
Glossary of Measurement Terms
• Flaccid Length Measurement - The measurement of the outstretched, non-erect penis from the shaft base to the tip of the glans.
• Flaccid Girth Measurement - The measurement of the circumference of the outstretched flaccid penis shaft at its thickest point.
• Erect Length Measurement - The measurement of the erect penis from the base of the shaft to the tip of the glans
• Erect Girth Measurement - The measurement of the circumference of the erect penis at its thickest point on the shaft
• Bone Pressed Erect Length - A common and consistent method for length measurement used in penis length studies; the ruler or other measuring device is pushed into the fat of the pubic bone on the dorsal (top) side of the erect penis shaft, measuring the distance between the base of the shaft and the tip of the glans.
