Hi, I'm new here, and I just want some help in figuring out what my true length is. I've measured my erect penis several ways, but I've gotten some varied results. When using a soft tape measure and running it along the top of my penis I'm a little over 7 inches, and when I use a flexible ruler and bend it down to follow my downward curved penis, I'm the same size as when I use the soft tape measure. Even when I measure from the side of my penis, I'm a little over the 7 inch mark. All of these measurements are also done without me pressing in, so I guess I'm doing non-bone-pressed measurements, instead I just start the measuring from my pubic bone but without pressing in any. My main problem is whenever I try to measure the "official" way where one is supposed to put a wooden ruler flat on top of their penis. I have a noticeable downward curve to my erection, so measuring this way I always lose nearly a half-inch. Some sites say that you should straighten the penis but when I do this I'm frustrated to know that I've still lost nearly a half-inch. I guess I just want to know why is this and which measurement do I trust? Obviously as a guy, I'd like to think that the higher measurements are my accurate and legitimate length, but I just want to know what measurement gives me my true and honest length. I have some pictures too. http://i745.photobucket.com/albums/xx96/lennonwow14/07-17-10_1511.jpg http://i745.photobucket.com/albums/xx96/lennonwow14/05-26-10_1734.jpg http://i745.photobucket.com/albums/xx96/lennonwow14/07-07-10_1556.jpg http://i745.photobucket.com/albums/xx96/lennonwow14/07-03-10_1455.jpg Thank you for reading this, and I hope I don't come off crazy or immature, but I think that it's fairly common for guys to worry about size I guess. Either way, I appreciate the help or input.
