    I have measured myself only about 3-4 times, they were all standing. One of my exes tried to measure me with a tape once while I was laying back, but her measurements were way off!

    Nevertheless you have such a superlative cock I wish you would get that tape measure off your gf - or get a bit of string- and measure it again.
    Length with the erect cock held out horizontally from your body. Lay a ruler along the top side pressing the end of the ruler onto the pubis bone ( provides a fixed reference point, avoids agurments regarding fat pads etc. ) and measure to the tip of the glans ( not the foreskin overhanging if there is one). Take a tape or string and measure the girth at the widest point on the shaft. Simple. I wish more members would do this. Photos acan be very deceptive.

    That's pretty much how I measure. Just one difference, it is not exactly horizontal. I pull it down a bit - I suppose this gives a slightly longer length? Also, I don't press into the pubic bone, but just gently touch it. As for girth, I actually go for an average... The widest point of my shaft is only so long.

    kloffus, I agree with you completely, that's the right way, to be accurate, too many guys cheat by putting the tape/ruler on the underside. Too many size estimates on here are way overestimated.

    Perhaps I should come clear and admit my own measurements according to this method.Just hope it wan't get me drummed out of the Large Penis Support group. Count me as "a supporter" not "a l;arge penis!" OK?
    I am 18.5 cms long x 14 cms girth. Or in "imperial measure" which those rebellious anti-imperialist Yanks still touchingly use - 7.28 inches long x 5.51 inches.
    I consider this a top-side or upper average.

    Lol that's close to my size sir. Definitely more then "high-average". Is a tape measure more accurate then a ruler for length when you have a downward curve like I do?

    Either a tape measure or a ruler will do. However if you use a ruler, pressing into your pelvic or (pubic) bone is not exactly accurate. It seems to be a bit of a cheat to do so, since you might gain an 1/8 or 1/4 of an inch to your length. Just lay the ruler just touching the skin, going forward to the tip of the penis. And I agree you can find what appears to be the thickest part of your cock and measure the girth that way. Since some men are thicker at the head, some are thicker at the base, and some are thicker in the middle, this method seems reasonable to me.
