I would guess either use a fabric measuring tape... or if you don't have that, then take a strip of paper, wrap around and mark it- then lay it out flat and measure with a ruler.

Am I right?!

Also it's half way along the shaft and using anything thicker than a tape or paper will introduce quite a big error.

Make sure you use the inches side of the tape. A lot of men posting their size on the Web seem to make the mistake of using the wrong side.

FF,

As usual, Firefly, You're 100% correct.

Makes me nuts when guys say that they don't know how thick they are or what their circumference is -- when it's so easy to figure out.

I just figured that if you didn't have a fabric measuring tape (sometimes made out of soft plastic now..) that it would be measured the same way you can measure for ring size for your finger! lol

If you order a ring from a cataloge- they have a flat chart.. like a flat ruler with sizes listed. They recommend you take a strip of paper, wrap it your finger,mark it, open it up and lay it against the chart. It tells you what size ring you have.

If you really need to know you may need to use a piece of thin cord that doesn't stretch much. About a third of men or more are thickest at the base of the penis. If you want to measure maximal girth and your maximal girth is there, a string will give a more accurate measurement. Even a measuring tape may be too wide.

Just wrap it snugly around and make a mark across both strands of the cord with a soft-tipped marker. Flatten the cord along a ruler and measure between the marks. This method can also be helpful in determining condom sizing since many condoms of a flared shape are narrowest at the ring or "bead" that winds up at the base of the penis when the condom is fully unrolled.

I don't understand how a fabric measuring tape is too wide? Do you mean too thick? Just use one edge of the measuring tape-- doesn't that work? What am I missing here?! lol

I can see how a string would work well though! smile

It's not frickin' rocket science, people. Just measure your damn dick and be done with it.
