Is there a ratio that means you are a grower or shower?

    There probably is not, but I thought I'd ask.

    Is there a ratio of soft size to hard size that determines whether you are a grower or a shower?

    Interesting.

    I don't think so, but I would say that if you more than double in length from soft to hard, then you are a grower. These things are pretty fuzzy though.

    I suppose so. My soft size also varies a lot morethan my erect size.

    Oh well. Just thought I'd ask! :)

    My flaccid size can vary a LOT but from it's smallest to me fully hard can be at least 2x both in length and girth. I am definately a grower but would rather be a shower.

    When totally relaxed (after a bath etc), I am 4.5" soft.

    Usually around 6.5" hard.

    I agree with this. And I never really thought of a ration for grower v. showers. Good question!

    If you more than double in size I would agree you are a grower. Everyone else would show then.

    Sounds like an acceptable standard to me.

    (Grower here btw)

    I figured anything over about 5 or 6 inches soft is a shower. And if you grow over, say, 1.5 your soft size, then maybe you're a grower. So, in my book, you can be a grower AND a shower -- a nice package when soft and an ever bigger rod when hard.

    my roomate is an EXTREME grower for sure. I'd say he is maybe 3" soft/kinda thin......i've seen him with an AM boner and he's got to be at least 7.5x6 hard....

    as with most things when it comes to penis size, i'd say this is very subjective, person to person...both in terms of the person bearing the penis and the observer.

    my "standard" flaccid state (not cold or semi chubbed, lol) is probably about 4-4.5 long by 4.5 around...which then grows to about 7 long by 5.5 around. so definitely not doubling in size, so i can't really say i'm a "grower" (at least, not by the standards most have been putting forth here). but nor would i consider myself much of a shower since that doesn't seem that big to me (flaccid), while others who've seen me naked and soft have been very impressed. so they WOULD consider me a shower, i guess...my cock is all in the eye of the beholder, lol!

    I think that ratios (whatever they might be) don't tell the whole story. There are probably guys out there who are both growers and showers, and other guys who are neither.

    Depending on conditions, I grow from half of my soft size to three times my soft size. Extremes are when I am at a Browns game in December and the wind is blowing off of Lake Erie. Some of you may think I am nuts to be at a Browns game, especially in December. Now during Indians games in July, more of a shower. So a hard and fast ratio for me is not a rule of thumb. Yes the pun was intended.

    aren't these statements contradictory? if a guy is a shower then he can't be a grower. the terms are mutually exclusive. same comment about your second statement. if a guy is neither, what is he?

    I figure if a guy gets longer when he gets hard, he is a shower. if he stays the same length when he gets hard, he's a shower? I suppose everyone has his/her own definition.

    I'd go with the double the length rule to be a grower. The exception to that would of course be a guy with say a 6" soft cock that grows to double that size. Regardless of the double rule, if you have a 6" cock soft, you ARE a shower! Just my two cents worth...

    Hmmm, if you double in size from 1.5" soft to 3" hard you'd be a grower but not one to advertise the fact (unless you were into SPH).

    If you went from (say) 5" soft to 9" hard you would be able to class yourself as both I reckon.
