Ever wondered your actual size?

Want to compare to other guys to see if you're bigger?

You're in the right place.

Most guys don't even measure properly, and already set themselves up for failure before even starting.

Here, you're going to learn the 3 key measurements and how to do them correctly.

1. The Bone-Pressed Flaccid Length (BPFL) Measurement

This is a measurement technique that you can do pretty much any time.

You will need your ruler with you.

The steps to do the BPFL Measurement:

  1. Grip the glans of your penis.

  2. Pull it as far outward as you can (without hurting yourself)

  3. Find the bone at the left or right of the base of your penis, at your pelvis

  4. Take your ruler and press the edge of it against that bone.

  5. With your penis still stretched out, line up your penis next to your ruler keeping both ruler and penis completely parallel to each other.

  6. Measure by tracing the tip of your penis to the correct mark on the ruler to get your size.

Keep in mind, you want to always use the same bone and the same spot to press the ruler against.

This pelvic bone location is ideal because it's hard and not going to move anywhere. It's perfect for consistency.

Another thing you don't want to do is to angle your penis towards the ruler. Remember: keep your stretched penis parallel with the ruler.

This will ensure that you always measure consistently.



2. The Bone-Pressed Erect Length (BPEL) Measurement

This one is very similar to the Bone-Pressed Flaccid Length Measurement.

The only difference is that your penis is in its fully-erect, maximum erection state.

The steps to do the BPEL Measurement:

  1. Get your penis to the 100% Erect State (though visual or physical stimulation)

  2. Find the bone at the left or right of the base of your penis, at your pelvis

  3. Take your ruler and press the edge of it against that bone.

  4. Angle and steady your erect penis so that it's completely parallel to the ruler.

  5. Measure by tracing the tip of your penis to the correct mark on the ruler to get your BPEL measurement.

Bone-Pressed Length Measurement is one of the most important measurements.

Generally, BPEL and BPFL measurements are the same length.

The BPFL is probably more easier to do because it doesn't require that you have a full erection - so you can do it pretty much any time.

However, the BPEL is probably the more "realistic" measurement because it's what your penis is going to actually be like when you're having sex.

These two measurements (BPFL and BPEL) are the only ones you should be using to measure length and the only ones you should be using to track your length progress.

Remember, consistent, accurate measurements are key so that you don't distort what kind of progress your making.

These two measurements are sure-fire ways to accurately know your length.





How to Measure Penis Girth

It was reported by a Cosmopolitan survey that women prefer a girth of 5.9 inches when it comes to one-night stands.

So you better make sure you're measuring girth correctly.

The steps on how to measure penis girth

  1. Take your tape measure in one hand.

  2. Wrap it around the thickest part of your erect penis shaft.

  3. Make a note of where the first overlap occurs - this is your girth measurement.

In principle, taking this measurement is simple, but it is actually a little challenging if you don't even have a tape measure (like one in sewing kits to being with).

How to take a penis girth measurement without a tape measure.

First, all you need is a hard, straightedge ruler and a string.

  1. Take the string in one hand.

  2. Wrap it around the thickest part of your erect penis shaft.

  3. Make a note of where the first overlap occurs and pinch it with your finger.

  4. Take the pinch point and press agains the zero marking on your straight ruler.

  5. Extend the string towards the increasing numbers on the ruler and the length of this segment of the string is your penis girth measurement!

You don't have to use a string either!

Here are some good alternatives:

  1. Velcro strap

  2. Wire

  3. Charging cable

  4. Thin cloth

  5. A thin, cut piece of paper

  6. Any kind of tape (and you can make a marking on it with a pen to help take the measurement).

  7. Floss

So now what?

So you know how long and thick you are.

Most guys are actually not fully happy with the result, and want to do something about it.

Some lie in the average 5 inch penis range and wonder if that's small.

Luckily for you, here are all the different methods for adding just a bit of size.


In Conclusion

Measuring your penis properly is the first step in any penis enlargement training program.

It accurately sets the starting point so that you can truly determine if you're making the right progress.

In this article we discussed how to take do the following measurements:

  • Bone-Pressed Flaccid Measurement

  • Bone-Pressed Erect Measurement

  • Girth Measurement

All 3 measurements are important.
