Measuring your penis is one of the many things that can make or break a successful penis enlargement experience. One could almost compare it with a good show on TV. If it’s scheduled too often, it loses the precious rarity value, if it’s on once a month with no reruns people lose interest and move on to something new. None of these approaches is desirable and the wise penis enlargement customer soon learns how to refrain from grabbing the ruler too often and also learns how to keep his own interest focused on the enlargement process without the need of frequent measuring.
The biggest problem is that frequent measuring may destroy the focus and the will to continue. The penis needs time to respond to the enlargement technique and frequent measuring is unlikely to show significant gains. It takes a number of weeks to add an inch to the penis, so weekly measuring is not a good idea. Nor is incorrect measuring a good idea. Measuring the penis is always a bit tricky and a seasoned customer needs to know all the tricks in order to have an accurate idea about the effect of the enlargement effort on the penis itself.
The basic rule of correct measuring is consistency. You need to put one end of the ruler in the same spot over and over again in order to see the exact amount of length and girth gained by your penis. This is why the recommended measuring technique is the one known as “bone pressed flaccid/erect length”. The reason why it is called thus is because the ruler is laid along the side of the penis and pressed a little into the pubic bone. The bone serves to provide the very fixed spot we’ve been discussing, regardless of factors that may influence the size of the penis.
As you probably know already, the penis is a sensitive mass of tissue through which a lot of blood is circulated. It shrinks when cold and it expands a little in heat. Tight pants keep it shrunk, while the morning jog is likely to engorge it as it puts the entire cardiovascular system in motion. This is why you should measure your length from the bone and not from the fat pad that covers it. Actually, you can use both measuring techniques and put both results in your logbook. This way you will know how long your penis really is and how much of it can be seen above the fat pad.
Still, you should keep in mind that any layer of fat added to the pad will cut into the penis size and make it look smaller. This means that sometimes losing a bit of weight might make the difference between a successful penis enlargement program and an utter failure. It doesn’t really matter if your penis added a quarter of an inch over the course of a month, if you’re fat pad got an extra half an inch. But using both measuring techniques at the same time might tip you to where the true problem lies.

The flaccid length of the penis can be dictated by many things, including the temperature. This might mean that you have contradicting results depending on the temperature of the situation that you are in. Flaccid gains are the first gains that come with a penis enlargement program, to keep results accurate we have a certain standardized way of measuring the flaccid penis. To measure accurately it is important that you measure from the side of the penis. Stand up straight and extend your flaccid penis in front of you (it is important NOT to stretch it), your penis should now be parallel with the floor. Place the ruler next to your penis so it is slightly pressing against the pubic bone. The ruler and your penis should be parallel with each other.
The erect length is what most members are interested in. Again it is best to measure from the side of the penis. This method is the standardized method that researchers use to measure the average penis size which is incidentally between 6″ – 6.5″ erect length. Firstly make sure you have a 100% erection where you would consider it the “most erect”. Hold your penis below the head and place the ruler next to it with your other hand. The ruler should be slightly pressing against your pubic bone. Measure to the nearest millimetre and it is important that you do not EXAGGERATE the measurement, if anything it is recommended that you under exaggerate. Exaggeration on the measurement could lead to a lack of motivation in the future. Make sure you do the right one!
The girth can be extremely awkward to measure because many people have different size girth measurements depending on which part of the penis that you measure. The standardized way is to measure in the centre of the penis shaft. When flaccid hold your penis out in front of you and wrap a tape measure around your penis. Do not pull the tape measure too hard, pull it to a reasonable level and remember this LEVEL of pull for the next time you measure. The average flaccid length of girth is between 3″-4″.
Make sure your penis is 100% erect and then proceed with the measuring. Hold your penis out in front of you so it is parallel with the floor. With your other hand place the tape measure around the penis making sure not to pull too tight. The average erect girth is 5″ – 5.5″ according to recent surveys conducted.
