    Hey, I'm 18 years old and new here and I was just wondering why there are so many ways to measure an erect penis? I've always heard from the people I know and from all the pictures on the web that you measure from the side from the pubic bone but now I keep reading about all these different methods like "bone pressed" and along the top and all of this crazy stuff. Anyway I measure mine from the side from the pubic bone but I don't press in and the length's about 7-7.1 inches and this is while standing up and holding my penis in my hand which I thought is the correct way. Then I try the along the top method and place the ruler flat on top and over my penis while holding my penis and while I'm standing, yet it's only like 6.75 inches when I do this. Finally I got a tape measure out and I didn't hold my penis and place the tape measure flat on top of my penis and it's 7-7.1 inches again. So I guess I'm asking why are there so many methods to measuring a penis, and which one is most accurate? I've always been told by girls who've seen my penis in person or in pics that I have a big penis, but I have no idea which measurement of me is most accurate. And most of you are probably wondering what I'm doing on here since I'm barely above average while I know all you guys here are seriously packing, but I just really want to know what my real measurement is. I've got some pics, and maybe because I'm uncircumcised that's why all my attempts at measuring are all different. My penis kinda curves downward too so idk. Please help me though.

    Hah I thought you were circumcised until I read your post.
    I think the best way is to be truthful about how much length you would have for sex.
    Use a flexible measuring tape and run it along the top of your penis, pressing in somewhat to the pubic bone, not jamming it but pressing it fairly well. I think that's reasonable because if you're thrusting hard some of the length hidden under the skin is going to be felt. Also using the soft tape allows you to trace the real length even with curvature.

    ...because guys use the method which gives the largest measurement.

    The scientific method is bone pressed.

    i find most guys on websites usually measure from their ankles, hence the average is 8"
    i measure 8-9" depending how hard i am, measured from the top to ther base, without pushing the flesh
    yet i am usually 2-3" bigger then most guys who say they are 8
    does that make me 11" ?
    me thinks not, just truthful
