How To Measure My Penis - Properly Measuring Your Penis Size

Ask ANY woman if size matters and the probable response you will get is "of course not". So if this is the case how come women constantly make jokes over size? And brag when their partner has got a big penis? They also secretly claim sex is better with a bigger penis? No wonder us men are confused. I decided to conduct my own research and get an honest view on whether size does really matter. You can find information on that research in an upcoming edition of this newsletter. Now let's see how you measure up on average to everyone else, lets measure your penis.

First A Few Helpful Tips When Measuring:

1. Use millimeters instead of inches or centimeters.

Millimeters are a more precise and a more encouraging means of measurement. For example, penis growth increase of one millimeter after two weeks is more encouraging than a growth of 0.03 inches, which is actually the same thing.

So how do you do this? Simply go to your local office supply store and pick up a ruler that has millimeters (mm). Below is a inch-to-millimeter calculator. Simply enter either inches or millimeters, click the "convert" button and the other unit will be calculated:

2. Read your ruler carefully.

Hard to believe, but many guys fail to take into account the 0.1 to 0.3 inches of white space at the beginning of the ruler. Measure carefully.

How To Measure My Penis Size - The Mechanics

With those two tips in mind, you are now ready to learn the key details about how to measure penis size.

First you need to measure your starting lengths, both flaccid and erect. We also recommend that you keep a logbook of your gains. Remember, when measuring be negative and round down the totals so that when you do see gains you don't think it's just because you didn't measure correctly! You should only measure once every month, measuring every day will lead to inaccurate results and make it harder to motivate yourself.

Measuring the Flaccid Length

The flaccid length of the penis can be dictated by many things, including the temperature. This might mean contradicting results depending on the temperature of the situation that you are in. Flaccid gains are often the first gains you will notice when performing penis enlargement exercises. 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 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. Measure to the tip of the head in millimeters or inches (whichever you are more comfortable working with). The important thing is that you always measure the same way and do not change your measurement units.

Measuring the Erect Length

The erect length is what most men 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 millimeter and it is important that you do not EXAGGERATE the measurement. If anything it is recommended that you round down.

Measure from the base to the tip of the head and make a note of your measurement.

Measuring the Flaccid Circumference (easier to measure than Girth)

The circumference can be extremely awkward to measure because many people have different size circumference measurements depending on which part of the penis 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 amount of pull for the next time you measure. The average flaccid circumference size is between 3"-4". In our photographs the model has a large flaccid length and circumference and it is likely that yours will be smaller.

Measure around the penis and make a note of your measurement.

Measuring the Erect Circumference

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 circumference is 5" - 5.5" according to recent surveys.
