"Problems measuring"
#1
First of all, want to introduce myself and say hi. I'm a newcomer to Penis Enlargement, been doing it for just 3 weeks. I was very skeptical when I first came here, mainly because I have always heard that surgery was the only way to enlarge your penis. And have always heard that pumps didn't work, any gains were just temporary, and figured all of this would basically be the same. From reading posts by so many here and at other forums about their gains, I decided it was at least worth a shot. So far I haven't noticed any gains (didn't expect to in such as short period of time), and that brings me back to my original topic of this post.

I am having a hard time getting any kind of consistent measurements. So even if I had gotten any gains at this point, I wouldn't know for sure. But whether I've gotten any, which I doubt after only 2 weeks, the point is, I would like to have an accurate starting measurement.

Lengthwise, my measurements come up anywhere from 6 1/4 to 7. Now I realize that the level of erection is the reason, and my penis seems to be very ruler shy, which causes me to lose some of the erection before i can measure.

Girthwise, I measure around 5 fairly consistently, but there's the same problem with being ruler shy. I use a piece of dental floss, and by the time I get it and then wrap it around and mark the spot, well, I've lost a bit of my erection, so I think I end up selling myself a little short. So I saw a thread about the toilet paper roll test, and tried that, and it fit very snugly. For whatever reason, I didn't have the ruler shy effect and pretty much kept my full erection. In fact, I couldn't get it down the shaft, and my skin bulged out around the base. So I figured that I was at least the girth of the toilet paper roll. So I measured the roll, and it was almost 5 1/2, which I have never even come close to when actually measuring my girth with the floss.

So anyway, if anyone can give me some pointers here to get an accurate, or at least a consistent measurement, that would help me in the future for tracking progress.

And I would also like to say that in the short time I have been doing this, I have definitely noticed improvement in flacid length and girth. I have always been a grower and not a shower , and have always thought my flacid size looked pitiful. But now it hangs better and looks fuller all day, which is encouraging. Even if I don't make any significant erect gains, it will be worth the effort just for the flacid improvement :)

Hopefully, this thread will help you out:

How to measure... A quick guide

Also, I don't use a regular wooden ruler. Instead, I use a soft plastic tailor's measuring tape. It's especially effective in getting a good girth reading.

Welcome to the forums, and good luck Penis Enlargement'ing. Don't be shy with any questions you might have.

well, to keep ur erection up longer u gotta do kegels, but u probally already know bout that


when i want to measure, i get all my supplies ready and in reach before i start so i dont loose an errection

and instead of using dental floss, i suggest using somehtin easier like a strip of paper or somethin like that

I would use the soft measuring tape for girth measurement only. Use a solid ruler for catching your length measurement. I screwed up my starting measurements and I can tell you i'm gutted.
for more info see my routine log, linked in my sig.

I would measure BPFSL (it's in the guide someone posted above) but be wary that you will have temporary gains this way, particularly after a workout. Good thing is, if you keep working out and don't miss any days then your BPFSL will only go up and up! G'luck man! :D

Thanks guys. I will get a tailor's tape for measuring girth, no more fumbling around trying to get that tiny piece of floss wrapped around my unit - lol

I'll also measure BPFSL which should at least be consistent, regardless of if i'm ruler shy.

I have the same problem, my boner fears the ruler so I measure FSBP most of the time. When I measure erect length I keep a ruler near by and watch some online porn. After a while I forget the ruler is there and my cock gets real hard then I grab the ruler and measure. Sometimes ya gotta trick the bastard.

I do something very much like this! I put some porn in my X-BOX and start to get hard, then I grab the ruler and put it in my right hand, I continue to jack off with my left hand, with the ruler in my right hand until I forget the ruler is in my hand then when I get rock hard, I bend my cock dowm at 9:00 and swiftly press the ruler up to my pubic bone. Works everytime!

WAIT !
I'VE HAD A BRAINWAVE !!!!
WE CAN USE THIS TO OUR ADVANTAGE!!!

We could hide a ruler beside the bed when we are servicing our girls and then to stop climax and lengthen our performance time, we could sneak a look at the ruler and the penis will calm down..

...might work lol

Yep, I would be scared like DLD that I wouldn't like the measurement and will lose it completely. lmao. Then I'll have a frustrated woman to deal with, but that can be taken care of. Which brings me to another question, are there any TE sites? (Tongue Enlargement) ...
