    You've heard or read about it before - flaccid size and erect size. It's easy enough to guess what erect size is referring to but when it comes to flaccid size, how flaccid should the penis be when measuring flaccid size? Should it be what I call the everyday flaccid penis, which is when the penis is relaxed and you are completely unaroused, but not necessarily as small as your penis can get? Or should the be the very smallest your penis gets when, for example, it's really cold?

    good questions. I know mine can vary almost a couple of inches depending on state of relaxation and temp.

    Ditto. I get up in the morning and I'm "hung" but later on it goes to a nub - well, not really but small. Gotta be a temp thing.

    Why not take a number of measurements when your cock is normally flacid and then use the the average out of them?

    yep. That's what I generally do. I'm a good 4" or so in the morning then it goes to 2.5" so when someone asks, I'm 3" soft.

    So, in your opinion, my perception of a relaxed and completely unaroused penis (though not necessarily as small as it can go) as flaccid is sensible then?

    Some people have told me that in that state my penis isn't completely flaccid although I would argue it is. If I was getting a semi I would know, wouldn't I? I think every man knows when his penis is now soft, semi or hard. There's just that feeling in the penis.

    There should be a new standard - after the cold plunge pool! Not that it would flatter anyone.

    I agree that it's a good question. I would think specifying an average or, better yet, a range would be about the best one could do. There are probably some guys whose flaccid size doesn't vary much but I think most of us do see considerable variability. I can shrivel up to such a small length (3") that my circumcised penis looks like it has foreskin or hang loose at nearly 80% of my erect length, and all without any stimulation or arousal. That's certainly the case in all of the attached photos:

    I would go with the average of how it hangs during the day possibly with a comment on about as small is it gets aside from super cold temps. As an example, i usually hang 3-4 flaccid.

    Are any of you unable to measure your cock when it stays flaccid? When a tape measure or ruler gets near my dick he has already begun to grow. I've tried many times threw the years to get an accurate measure, but he never fails to not let me.

    i kinda agree with the previous poster who suggested a freezing pool and then a measure. least then we'd all be at the same starting gate... may not be flattering though...

    I know what you mean cause I can go from 'impressive flaccid' to 'that dude is little'.

    But my best answer is who the fuck cares?
