    Not sure where to ask this, but here goes....
    When measuring girth do you guys state your smallest measurement, largest or do you average them all out?
    Also do you include the head? My shaft averages 5" (slightly less mid shaft, more at base) but my head can be huge - over 5.6"... more if I kegel a bit.
    If we are talking maximum penetrative girth then surely the head must be taken into consideration.
    Just wondering.

    I think most guys never even measure girth, length is the only measurement most guys are concerned with but I think girth should be measured at the head and on the shaft at the thickest point, then that point should be stated. For example, I'm just under 6.5" around at the head (sometimes more but I have to be really hard) and just over 7" around at the base of my shaft. Most guys are thickest either near the head or at the base so it's important to know where the maximum girth occurs because like you said, "penetrative girth" is important. That's my 2 cents worth.

    measuring girth is real important I think in cock size. thickness counts! I measure midway up my shaft. I'm 6.5-6.75" there. a little thicker at the base and a little thicker around the head. head measurement, I think, does not represent cock girth..it represents cock head size..and that in itself is a great thing, but it's not dick thickness..it's different.

    I only measured around the centre of the shaft - 6.5".

    Apt name Chris. When I say 'huge' of course, I'm speaking relative to me. You are truely huge in my book!
    Anyway I just tried to measure my head girth at full erection (which was tricky) and its probably 5.8. at its widest around the base of the head. So thats the thickest point of my penis.
    I would still probably say that I'm 7x5 though as most of the shaft is 5".
    Just wondering if others would state their largest girth or average?

    A couple guys tell me they measure at mid shaft and that seems "fair" unless the guy is 'football' shaped and that is the thickest part of his shaft. That's why I like to know where the max girth occurs. But an average seems like a fair way and for most guys measuring at mid shaft will give a close average.

    Like Shakespeare said, "the length is the thing".

    I've never before heard it called "football shaped", but I'm raising my hand as guilty. I've always given my girth at the thickest point, which is approximately 2/3 from the base of the shaft. The head's corona is close to that 6 inch measurement, though. My cock is quite a bit less girthy at its base, but I don't measure there and try to forget it, like holding my fist around it in pictures! Ain't it shameful how some of us are so carried away with dicks and their thicknesses?

    I don't even have a photo with the head at its largest. I wanted to look balanced and (Mc)Normal I guess. Its about average in the pics.
    It would be good if the shaft was as thick as the head, but I guess the grass is always greener.
    I wasn't sure if a large head was a good or not?

    I call mine, 'cone shaped' and I call guys that are top heavy, big head and thickest near the head with a taper to the base, 'baseball bat shaped'. All seem like a good visual description but no offense was meant so I hope none was taken.

    I'm 5.25 shaft but a good bit bigger on my head. AS far as big heads being good - I've been told by girls that they love my big dickhead. Use it well!

    Penis Surveys measure girth at the center point of length.

    My glans is only about 4.5"-5" around. The base and nearly half my cock is 6" around. Then it gets less :frown1:

    Anyway, just state your head is thickest (who are you going to tell anyway). No one ever asks how thick my cock is...or even how long it is. And I only tell them if they asked. I've never been asked for a girth measurement though, I don't think girls are aware of that, or can understand it. I told one woman I was 6" around she said "omg it must be like a tree!"
