    That illustration is of a dildo, dag, not a penis and balls.

    Don't accept the 'insertable' length of a dildo as the same for the real penis as the latter is not near as rigid.

    Excellent point about the insertable length.

    I've noticed at least two things in dildo measurements--
    Notice the total length reflects (what would have to be from Dag's illustration he provided us) a "bone-pressed" measurement (a method often questioned as acceptable here around our forum!)

    And, those dildos molded after a "famous penis" --i.e. (porn star, etc) are known to actually represent an additional "inch or two" BEYOND the real life model's true size! (Some clever,talented artisans out there!)
    Also, some "real-life" molded dildos even measure length which includes an additional 1" extended rubber "base" ...not the true, "actual original" measurement of the real-life model by a long shot.

    Yet, another supreme example of a distorted view of real life....this time for the almighty dollar.

    --Buying what one (thinks) is a sure-fire copy of an original "big one"......when in fact, it is NOT. :(

    The drawing points out an interesting difference between dildos and a real penis, and how it affects measurements. On the dildo, the shorter of the two lengths is on the side with the balls, that is, the bottom. But on most people, the shorter length is on the top, even pressed to the bone, and the bottom measure is longer, because the balls can be pushed back to the space between the legs, revealing some of the root of the penis. So, on a real person, the insertable (shorter) length ends up being at the top, and the longer (total) length ends up being at the bottom by the balls, backward from the dildo.

    H8Monga: Don't worry... I've measured wrong a lot of times! I think I got it right now... for the next 3 months before something else comes along... I'm just going to start going by the porn inches and let it be!
