Proper Penile Measuring Protocol Questions

Here are the questions:

1. LENGTH: Penis length measurement is usually taken along the top of the penis from the base to the tip. This measurement is usually less than measuring along the side of the penis. Do you agree that along the top is the standard for measuring? Do you think that an average of the top, side, and bottom should be used?

2. GIRTH: Most penises vary some in girth from the base to the head. When referring to girth, should one use the greatest girth measurement or the least girth measurement? Or should one take three measurements (base, mid-shaft, behind the head) and average the three?

1. The top measurement is standard, I believe pressing the ruler to the bone is also the standard method of measuring.
Non bone-pressed is for visual purposes only, since fat can be compressed the hidden part of the penis can actually be used during penetration therefore it isn't the most accurate measurement. Actual penis length will conflict with fat pad depth so it isn't very useful in my opinion.

2. The maximum girth size is the one you should record, since it's the one you need to know when choosing condoms etc.
In some European countries, the width is given instead of the circumference.

So, adding the measurement of your top-curve to your bottom-curve, and dividing by 2, is not sufficient?...

I'm speaking of length-measurements here, of course.

Both length and girth should be measured that standard way as you have described.

I measure along the top on the center line, pressed to the bone. This method gives me a length of 7.5". Along the side, pressed to the bone I am 8", a significant difference. My girth varies fron 5.4 at the base to 5.6 at the head. I take the mid-shaft girth of 5.5 as my size. I state my size as 7.5 x 5.5.

In my opinion, no. You can only penetrate as deep as your top measurement, so the top measurement is your true length.

Why make it so complicated...Topside, base to tip of head

...because I'm sure that my erection, had it been straight as a needle(or a log...), it would be something like 7,3-7,5 inches.
Now, even allowing oneself to bonepress, AND follow the upper curve, it can't be said to be much more than 7.

Although, I myself agree that by using my 8ish outside curve measurement, I would be making a slight exaggeration.

Wow HollyBlue. I love you! All this time I've been measuring my mid shaft girth which is just over 5", but my base girth is over 6". You just gave me another inch - where it counts.

...but I'm not complaining about having a curved penis.
The upward-curve adds just a hint of perfection, and it seems like the condition is regarded as an asset by many here.

I mean, isn't even the UNIVERSE supposed to be curved?
I bet it curves upwards!....

That's very funny. My universe curves to the left, and up, plus it corkscrews about 1/4 revolution anticloclwise. But I wouldn't exchange it for a straight one.

So if you look at my picture, I should measure for girth around the head? I thought girth was specific to the shaft.

Yes, I wonder if that'll ever find its way into the thesaurus:
The Penis-shaped universe.

And I hear it's still expanding.
I wonder what technique it's using.

I expand my universe with a combination of jelqing, stretching and pumping. It's not the biggest universe around but it's expanded a lot in the last year and my wife thinks the earth of it... and the moon... and the stars... She shouts about it to the neighbours when I nail her to the bed with it
