    Theres a proper way to measuring penis size but many people dont do it the "proper way" used by todays penis size studies. Today, researches measure along the side of the penis from where the penis begins to the tip. recent studies show that the actual average penis length isnt 5.5 -6 inches as Kensley's study stated but actually 5 inches when fully erect and 4.8 inches in girth.

    So my question is, how do you measure yourself? or how do you measure your hubby? many girls that I know measure with the guy laying on his back then they measure from below his balls to the tip (which adds like 2-3 inches)

    just curiose to yall yall do it :) :ugh lol

    The "official" studies I have read and also seen quoted here on SF all say fully erect, for length, measure along the top from the base of the penis (not pushing it into the soft skin of the mons pubis) to the tip end.
    For girth, measure around the thickest part mid-shaft with a tape measure.

    There are many threads dealing with penis size. My dick is 14 inches long, however all but 40% of it is in another dimension.

    im just curious cause i noticed that people dont know how to measure even though that new studies are proving otherwise and still go with the whole 6inch in average thing.

    And Kensley did the study of average penis size i think back in 1995 and results ended with the average penis length being 6 inches. HIs study however (which is the foundation to nearly all studies until 2007) had many holes. All men being meausred were all volunteers, thus scuing the results by creating experimental bias and subject bias. And also, all particpants measured themselves, so there are many variables there to honesty and measuring technique isnt directly pronounced so the actually measuring may have been done in many differnet ways.

    Im actually doing a report on this for class so please bare with me on this lecture :D lol i need the practice and feedback :D

    Forgive us if your question isn't met with a great deal of enthusiasm here, because it has been asked and discussed countless times. I've never measured my boyfriend's nor any of my previous 20 sex partners' penises because it's never occurred to me to do so. Women generally do not care about penis size at all. It's the men who obsess over their size because for some reason they think they won't be able to satisfy a woman unless they have a monster in their trousers.

    You're a virgin right now, but you'll find out soon enough that there's much more to having sex than the penis moving in and out of the vagina. Real life sex is nothing like what you might have seen on porn and it's nothing at all like masturbation.

    I'm glad (hope) young women don't watch as much porn as men, or they would be surprised when they finally saw the real thing.

    Every forum has countless threads about this. Why any bloke would want to measure his knob is beyond me. What difference does it make knowing the size? If you can't drive it's pointless having a rolls or a plastic rat.

    lol i understand that questions like this is of very disturbingly frequent. But the real point of this was to identify perception. Unfortunately, i didnt get the response i as looking for (so my paper will suffer :( ) lol I usually go to yahoo answers cause people ask question like this non stop and its usually easy to get immature and disturbing answers. My paper is based upon perception of how one feels is a natural way to deal with anxiety through defence mechanisms and how our own self serving bias scues. ANd as you can bet, doing this experiment is a bit odd to do in person lol

    but anyway, sorry to annoy or offend anyone. Thanks for helping anyway :) it did however help with my thesis

    So, our answers were too mature for your purpose? I would guess that real live interviews may be better for collecting useful data. It ought to be at least be good for entertainment value.:eyes

    You're quite welcome. Come back anytime. Bye the way, if you're quoting stats in a thesis, it might be better if you use the word skew instead of scue. I'll assume you don't use "lol" on your profs either, right?

    --------------

    EDIT: Nevermind, I just looked closer at your member profile; substitute "teachers" where I wrote "Profs," and use "lol" wherever you like.

    I suppose you could stand in the street with a board and ask blokes "how big a prick are you?" The answers may be interesting.
