How to correctly measure your penis to start with PE exercises

Most men practice PE (Penis Enhancement) exercises to make their penis bigger. However, this is not the case for everyone. Lots start practicing PE to improve their ejaculation control, correct a curvature in their members, or even increase the capacity of the erection, among others.

The issue is that most novices start with some penis enlargement device and little information about the practice itself, making it difficult for them to learn and be consistent with the training. The most common mistake is in the way of measuring the penis. Usually, PE device companies don’t provide reliable information on measuring, making growth a highly biased process for their customers.

This means that most men start practicing PE to enlarge their members, and they lack a way of verifying that they are actually making it. Therefore, the first step is to measure the most reliable way to evaluate the effects of the exercises. Measuring gives us the possibility of observing the growth process objectively, without cheating or rounding up.

There seems to be widespread anxiety about getting fast results with the exercises. Men become obsessed and measure themselves every day, expecting to see the results in two or three weeks. Penis growth occurs very slowly. Veterans recommend taking the measurements once a month or, better yet, once every two months to see measurable changes.

We take two dimensions into account in PE: length and girth. To start, grab a ruler, preferably made of wood or plastic, and a tape measure, like the one used by tailors. However, we recommend using our specialized PE ruler, as it can provide all measurements in either centimeters or inches at once, it's easy to store, and it's perfect for precise measurement.

Values ​​are generally expressed in inches and fractions, although Europeans and Hispanic Americans use the metric system in centimeters and millimeters. So, for example, a measurement of 6” x 5” would be that of a penis that is 6 inches long and 5 inches thick (girth).

It’s part of common sense to measure the “visible” length of the penis, from the skin of the pubis to the tip of the glans. Yet, the skin of the pubis is not a reliable point of reference because it may or may not be bulky, depending on the amount of fat accumulated under the skin.

In addition, this characteristic can vary depending on the person’s body weight and if the man is standing or sitting. For this reason, the system adopted to measure the length of the penis is from a stable reference point, which is the pubic bone rather than the skin.

This system is known as “bone pressed” or pressing to the bone. Although we will have to distinguish between the erect penis and the flaccid penis, the basic principle for both states is the same.

To measure the erect or flaccid length of your penis, follow these steps:

  • While standing, place the penis in a forward position or parallel to the floor with one hand

  • Put the ruler on the penis, with the zero ends towards the pubis.

  • Holding the penis with one hand, carefully press the ruler against your pubis with the other hand, avoiding pain. Apply pressure until it can no longer be pushed further inside.

  • Finally, read the measurement that reaches the tip of the glans. That is the length of the penis.

The illustration above clearly shows this bone pressing method. The ruler is placed parallel to the midline of the penis. This helps measure the distance accurately.

This “bone pressed” is the most reliable way of measuring the growth of the penis because it only considers the development of the organ’s internal structures, on which the PE exercises focus. The most important parts we target when training are: the suspensory ligament of the penis, the tunica albuginea, the corpora cavernosa, and the corpus spongiosum of the urethra.

For many, when we use the “bone pressed” system, it seems as if we are creating a deception, pretending to have a larger penis than what we really see. For example, in a man with a thick pubis, the “bone pressed” measurement could give 7 inches when the penis we see is only 6 inches in reality. This is true. However, this system has become the best for our true purpose because it gives the complete measurements: all the available tissue to work on when we train. In addition, the body is always subject to change. The actual size of the penis does not change if we gain weight, only what is visible.

One way to express the dimensions, clarifying that the length is “bone pressed,” would be the following example: 7” BP X 5”, where it is indicated that the penis is 7 inches long, “bone pressed,” and 5 thick.

❗️It is necessary to consider this measurement in the erect penis and the flaccid penis.


There are two considerations to make: the angle of the penis and whether there are curvatures. Many men have the penis directed more upward than forwards. In this case, it is necessary to move the penis to an angle that is entirely forward or parallel to the floor and then push the ruler into the pubis until it touches the bone. If there are curvatures, which are also expected and completely normal, it is necessary to straighten the penis to take the measurement. The erect penis can be straightened with the hands and pushed against the ruler. Once the penis is straight and directed completely forward, measure its length.

This measurement is called Bone Pressed Erect Length or BPEL.


In this case, penis curvatures are not a problem for measuring. However, the difficulty of measuring the flaccid penis is because there is no specific flaccid size, unlike the erect penis, where when the erection is complete, there is only one size or one measurement. Size variations in the flaccid penis are due to stimulation, temperature, and mood. Therefore, it is recommended to measure the penis when it is the size that is considered most frequent.


The thickness of the penis is measured through its circumference or perimeter (usually known as “girth”). Take the tape measure at the zero ends and place it around the middle of the shaft of the penis, forming a ring, and read the measurement. This measurement should be taken in both states of the penis: erect and flaccid, as was done for length.

The illustration above shows the girth measurement.

Usually, the penis does not have a uniform circumference from the base to the back of the glans. Therefore, measuring from the middle part is preferable if the base is wider than the end. On the other hand, if the base is thinner than the rest, you should measure at its widest part, which will be in the middle of the body of the penis or immediately behind the glans.

In summary, these are all the measures used in PE. Of course, you don’t have to use it all, just the ones that you find most important for you and your goals. Nevertheless, having a broad track of all your measurements can give good insights into what is working and what is not.

  • Bone Pressed Erect Length: BPEL

  • Bone Pressed Flaccid Stretched Length: BPFSL

  • Non-Bone Pressed Erect Length: NBPEL

  • Non-Bone Pressed Flaccid Stretched Length: NBPFSL

  • Erect Girth: EG

  • Flaccid Girth: FG

With perseverance, discipline, and patience, the results come! Good luck in your growth journey.
