What is the correct way to measure a flaccid penis? I always thought it was to lift it parallel to the floor then measure, which is where my measurement comes from. I'm curious because when you hear guys talking about how a guy hangs in the locker room, you hear 'crazy' stories of "he was 8 inches soft!". I say crazy in quotes because I'm starting to view flaccid measurement in 2 different ways: Flaccid Hang - What's seen in the locker room and everywhere else you're naked. Flaccid Length - The parallel to the floor measurement. I measure slightly above 6" in flaccid -hang- but in flaccid -length- I measure around 5.5". If anything, the flaccid hang should be considered the more valid measurement, right? After all, that is what's seen normally as opposed to a parallel to the floor flaccid penis. What does everyone else think?
