What is the correct way to measure your penis?

I hear guy's saying how big they are, but how are they measuring there penis? Some guy's have some body fat and that creates this little fat pad around the pelvic area which covers some of the lower part of the penis shaft. So I would assume when guy's measure they press down against this fat pad and slightly press against the pelvic bone since this is where the penis shaft begins. Is this the correct way of measuring? If so I'm 6.5 inches long erect but I still feel small...I mean guys in porno's always look bigger. The other thing is I always thought my girth erect (5.75 inches) was above average size since the average is said to be 5 inches, but I see some guy's who look just as big as me and so I feel average in that area now. Anyway, I really want to know how to measure properly, so if anyone knows please let me know.

First of all the guys in pornos are freaks and they are in the movies cause they are huge. As far as measuring I believe you just put the ruler or whatever down the front of the penis from the pelvis bone to the tip but maybe others could be more specific

It depends if you want to brag,LOL, or simply would like to know how long it is, I've tried both ways, ruler under my penis, or on top, both have been the same.

Re: What is the correct way to measure your penis?

LOL...I guess no one really knows. I do know that the medical way to measure is by pressing slightly against the pelvic bone a little above the side of the penis shaft.

Re: What is the correct way to measure your penis?

It's always along the top. Pressing hard through the fat to the pubic bone is kind of cheating as that would be the length only if you were really skinny. If yo are fat then the effective length would only be the length that can fully penetrate. Never do you measure along the side or bottom.

Re: What is the correct way to measure your penis?

So length is determined by how fat you are? Because I can tell you that when I was fatter I had an inch of my shaft that I could not see at all...now I can^_^ I still have an inch of fat pad in my pelvic area, and all I have to do is press down slightly and the fat pad pushes down an inch more.

How does everyone else measure?

Re: What is the correct way to measure your penis?

Well, I'm a bit overweight and there's a slight fat pad above my penis too. This just gets in the way of my view a bit. It doesn't seem to conceal any length, although I heard that actually happens. Hmm... Maybe if I lost some weight?

I will gently push the fat pad flat so I can see where my penis joins my body. I measure along the top from that point (where shaft meets groin) to the tip of my knob, taking into account the space between the edge of the ruler and where the "zero" mark is. On my ruler, that's an eighth of an inch I want credit for!

To measure girth, I take a strip of paper and (gently!) wrap it around the middle of my penis (I have consistent thickness) and with a marker (because a pen HURTS!) mark the once-around point. I then release the paper and measure to the mark. Instant girth.

This method says I'm 4.5" long and 5.0" around.

Measure twice and cut once..... OH Wait!,... that rule applies to a different topic altogether.

Girth - take a cloth measuring tape and wrap it around the thickest part of your erect penis

Non-bone pressed erect length - With a ruler lightly touching the skin on your pelvic bone above your erect penis, take measurement

Bone Pressed Erect Length - Same, but press down as hard as you comfortably can and measure, this takes into account your fat pad

So will I always have my fat pad or does that fat pad go away if you lose weight? If I do lose the fat pad then I should see all of my penis shaft that was covered, right? Also, how do most guy's take there measurements...non-bone pressed or bone pressed?

The fat pad will be reduced if you lose weight. It never goes to zero though. I don't know how most guys take their measurements. I do know that some of these surveys are somewhat misleading. They almost never tell you how they do the measurements. I think both are numbers are good for separate reasons. NBP (non-bone pressed) is good because it gives a general guage in usable/visual penis. Bone pressed is good if you're doing lengthening exercises because it gives an accurate measurement of progress as opposed to weight loss.

And yes, it's possible.
