The ONLY valid way to measure your dick length is to take an old-fashioned wooden school ruler, place it flat on TOP of your dick, and push it into your pelvis as far as you can.


I disagree with your way of measuring. You're meant to gently rest the ruler above the penis, you do not jab it in to your pubic bone, you gently rest it against the skin. Your way of measuring I'd be 6.7 long, my way I'm 6.4, but my way's more accurate and not cheating.

Yeah man, I've questioned this method ever since I came across it here (see my post above, #10025). But a lot of people seem to subscribe to it, so what can you do. It's no wonder measurements vary so wildly.

i agree,if i measured that way i would be just under 8.0ins,that can't be the right way to measure your dick.i just lay a ruler on top and not push into your pubic bone.thats how i measure my self,and i'am 7.6 instead of 8.ins.

The thickness of the "fat pad" overlying the male pubic bone varies widely from man to man. In a given man it varies with body weight and body fat percentage as well as age and even posture. The subcutaneous fat of the lower abdominal wall tends to droop with age in a man just as a woman's breasts droop. In some very slender young men, the bone-pressed and non-bone-pressed lengths may be very close, within 1/4 inch or so.

But in most men, most of that tissue is relatively easily pushed aside. When a man lies down, the fat pad may be substantially less.

If one is doing serial measurements on a given person, or if one wants to get an estimate of the variability of penis size in a population independent of body weight, the bone-pressed measurement is much more consistant.

And the "functional length" of the penis, meaning "how much can you get in" is often closer to the bone-pressed measurement than the non-bone-pressed one.

The pressing down to the bone IS the only way an overweight guy can get a true measurement. 7 years ago i weighed 40lbs more than i do and i thought i had only a 4 1/2 inch penis. Not awfull but smaller than it actually is. Now with 40lbs gone i'm around 5 1/2 and can pubic press to 5.8.My dick obviously didn't grow as an adult the fat went away. I still have some cushion there but its more like a 1/4 inch. Basically get yourself in the best shape you can to show a little more. The fat pad matters.

The confusion lies in slim guys like myself. Even I have a fat pad, but it's barely noticable. If I push the ruler back I gain an extra 1/4 of an inch, making me 6 and 3/4 long. But only 6.5 will get inserted into a vagina, so that's why I don't think these bone pressed measurements are that accurate.

realistically if you aren't thrusting hard harder with your hips than you were with the ruler, you aren't doing it right;D

Well, it's your cock and you can measure it any way you want.

6.75 x 6 inches doing it that way.

My fiancée is a bit nervous, so it's probably the right size for us.
