How to measure a penis

To measure penis length, press a ruler into the groin and measure from the base of the penis to the tip. To measure penis girth, wrap a measuring tape around the widest part of the penis.

Right way to measure penis length

Step 1: Preparation Before you begin, ensure you have a flexible measuring tape, a pen or marker, and a piece of paper or notepad to record your measurements. Find a private and comfortable space where you can focus without distractions.

Step 2: Achieve an Erection (Optional) For measuring purposes, it’s generally recommended to measure your penis when it’s erect. This is because the size can vary significantly between flaccid and erect states. However, if you prefer to measure your flaccid penis, you can still follow the same steps.

Step 3: Penis Length Measurement Hold your penis firmly at the base with one hand to ensure it remains straight and parallel to the ground throughout the measurement process. With your other hand, place the measuring tape on the top side of your penis, just above the base, and extend it along the shaft to the tip. Make sure the tape is taut but not too tight. Take note of the measurement in inches or centimeters and record it.

There is another popular method called string measurement. 

In this kind of measurement, you may use a thick thread or a string to measure the length of the penis. Start by taking the tip of the string and placing it at the very base of the penis closest to the pubic bone just the way it was done in the scale measurement. Extend the string to the very tip of the penis and mark it with a marker. Put the string on the measuring scale or ruler and measure the exact length till the marked point on the string. This also gives you a very accurate penile length measurement.

Right way to measure penis girth (width)

Step 1: Penis Girth Measurement To measure the girth or circumference of your penis, wrap the measuring tape around the thickest part of your erect penis. Ensure the tape is snug but not constricting. Again, record the measurement in inches or centimeters.

Step 2: Repeat (Optional) For the most accurate results, you may choose to repeat the measurements a few times to ensure consistency. Take note of the average measurements obtained to have a reliable estimate of your penis size.

Step 3: Interpretation and Comparison (Optional) Once you have your measurements, it’s important to remember that penis size can vary widely among individuals, and there is no “ideal” or “standard” size. Use the measurements as a reference point for personal knowledge rather than as a basis for comparison or self-esteem.

Penile girth or thickness is nothing but the circumference of the penis shaft. To accurately measure penis thickness, the best way is to use a string or a thick thread. Take a string and gently wrap or wind around the thickest part of the penis shaft of a fully erect penis. With a marker or ink pen, mark the string at the exact point where the string meets. Put the string on a measuring scale or ruler and measure the length from the beginning of the string till the mark. This will give you the exact thickness of the penis.

The other way to measure the penis girth is to use a soft tailor measuring tape. Start with the tape at the thickest part of the fully erect penis and wrap it around once till the tape meets. Mark this point and read the length of the tape.

Almost in every country of the world penis length and thickness are universally measured in inches, regardless of which measuring system (British Metric System or the Old English/American FP Foot-Pound system)
