Ever wondered your actual size?

You're in the right place.

Here's the proper way on how to measure your penis.

How to Measure Penis: 1. The Bone-Pressed Flaccid Length (BPFL) Penis Measurement

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

You will need your ruler with you.

How to Measure Penis with the BPFL Measurement:

  1. Grip the glans of your penis.

  2. Pull it as far outward as you can.

  3. Take your ruler and press it into your fat pad and pelvic bone.

  4. Take the measurement.

Penis Measuring Tips:

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

This can be on the top of the penis or on the side.

Do not place the ruler and take the measurement underneath the penis.

Keep your stretched penis parallel with the ruler.

Oh, and go here if you want to start doing penis stretching exercises for size:

How to Measure Penis: 2. The Bone-Pressed Erect Length (BPEL) Penis 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 erect state.

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

The BPEL and BPFL measurements ARE the same length.

The BPFL is easier because you don't have to pull on your penis.

Therefore, you can choose to just do erect (BPEL) measurements and ignore flaccid ones.

How to Measure Penis Girth

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

Therefore, flaccid girth and erect girth is important.

If you're impatient like me, you can just go here, if you want to start improving girth immediately.

How to Measure Penis: The Step-by-Step:

  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.

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

  • Take the string in one hand.

  • Ring it around the thickest part of your erect penis shaft.

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

  • Keeping your fingers pinched, remove the string from your penis.

  • Measure the string against a ruler for your penis girth measurement!

You don't have to use a string either!

Alternative tools to use to measure your penis girth:

  • Wire

  • Charging cable

  • Shoelace

  • A thin, strip of paper

  • Floss

Just Make sure your item doesn't stretch (like a rubber band), otherwise you will get a wrong measurement!

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

So you measured your penis and you seem small.

Micropenis is used to describe an unusually small penis.

One way of defining micropenis is to first measure the erect penile length, and the result is at least 2.5 standard deviations smaller than the average human penis size.

It is also defined when a man's penis is smaller than about 7 cm (2 3⁄4 in) for an adult. The average erection of a penis should be 12.5 cm (5 in).

Once you learn how to measure penis, this condition can be recognized at a young age.

Micropenis, the term, is used in the medical context when the rest of the penis, scrotum, and perineum are without ambiguity, such as hypospadias.

Micropenis occurs in about 0.6 percent of men.

They key is to make sure your measuring technique is the same every time you do a measurement.
