    Is this a proper way to measure:

    Placing the ruler at the side of your penis, but leaving it at the same level where the top of your penis meets the abdomen ie not pushing it in/down?

    Along the top I get 8" but at the side I get 8.5"+ I think that's cos my penis is curved to the left a bit and the ruler subverts the curved parts. Anyway just wondering which is right/if measuring from the right side, and along the curve with a ruler is valid.

    Thanks.

    To my knowledge, you get different measurements based on whether you measure from the top or side or the bottom. Top gives you the least length, side gives you a little more, and bottom gives you the most of all. I'm 6 inches on top, 6.5 at side, and 7 when measured from underneath. I think it all depends on where you measure from. But to be fare, I give myself the least amount of length and say I'm 6.

    I really respect you, by the way, for showing a picture of your face on this forum. That's really brave. This isn't really a picture of me, by the way. It's a picture of the guy for Sopranos. Maybe one day I'll be as brave as you and will be able to show my real face.

    By the way, to get the most accurate measurement we should probably use tape measurers or something that bends with the curce of the penis, if the penis curves. Or use a piece of string or something, and then measure the string.

    Picture, if you can, a wide, clear tube (not unlike a penis pump) with graduated lines measuring cms or inches. You insert your erected penis into the tube, snugly against your pubic bone, and you mark the tube where the tip of your glans reaches. (The wideness of the tube makes any curvature moot, which pretty much negates the extra measurement of upwards, downwards, left or right curves.)

    What you will have is a very accurate measurement of length (or depth of penetration) which should closely match the bone-pressed, "along the top" measurements we discuss here most often.

    Yeah, I get a measurement of 6.5 inches along the side, I think it's mostly due to that there's no fat pad (or less than at the top of the penis). Along the top I get a measurement of 6 inches and since that's the penetrative length I have during sex, that's the measurement I go with.

    While you certainly can measure any way you want, all of the size surveys ask for the measurement on the top side; it&#39;s not because it&#39;s the shortest measurement (although it is), its because it&#39;s the most accurate, and is a better measurement for comparison purposes.

    So if you are measuring to see how you compare to the average, meausre on the top side&#33; I&#39;ve cammed with quite a few guys that were supposedly an inch or so longer than I am, only to discover that they were the same size or smaller, since I measure on the top, and apparently they had measured on the side or bottom&#33;

    I don&#39;t think that is necessarily true (the "accuracy" factor anyways). For people with straight dicks, it&#39;s not going to matter much on any side. For people with downward or upward curving dicks though, it IS going to make a difference. And personally I think that "insertable" length is a different matter entirely from an actual LENGTH of a penis.

    Another issue, what does "insertable length" mean anyway? I wasn&#39;t aware that vaginas, anuses (anii?) and throats were uniformly straight in the first place. So a penis that is straight or differently curved than what it is going in might not even go in as far (at least comfortablely) as something that is similarly curved.

    Why not just take two measurements and either give a range or average them out?

    End the straight dick facism&#33;&#33;&#33; :p

    side measurment : press the ruler to your pubic bone, thats give u right measurement , cause u cant press more to the bone... if u curved , of course u have to add lost of curved part too.

    Here&#39;s the proper way to measure:

    Stumble on to the subject of average penis size with your girl. Suggest that you look up the facts "for giggles." Google it select a study. I suggest the Lifestyles one, as it indicates that smallest average - around 5.1".

    Now, have her measure yours. Give her a soft tape measure, as she will naturally give you the benefit of measuring your curve - fair, since she also gets benefits from the curve. Gently guide her to a decent result without getting pedantic on technigue. Let her realize how much bigger you are. You might even point out to her where 5.1 is on your cock, just as a kicker.

    She&#39;ll probably get pretty hot and fuck the shit out of you.

    That&#39;s my method. YMMV

    I am glad this thread reminded me of that little game. Played it last night. All I can say is that, even when you give them the right tools, a lot of girls are really bad at math. She liked the game, though. That matters more than a bit.
