Inability to measure properly causes a lot of men to have a distorted measurement. They are having a hard time figuring out if they are truly making gains because they don’t have their true size. Knowing how far you are from the average size, also helps you determine how important gains would be.
This step by step guide will show you how to measure your penis accurately, and consistently.
How to Measure Bone Pressed Length
- Allow your penis to get to 100% erect state. You can do this with visual or physical stimulation.
- Stand up normally and do not thrust your hip forward or else it will add length. Start by locating the bone that’s at the right or left of the base of your penis, at your pelvis.
- Take a ruler, place it on top of your penis and start measuring by pressing the base of the ruler to your pelvis until it is directly against the pubic bone. Pressing the base of the ruler will push the pubic fats sitting on the penile shaft.
- Make sure that your penis is parallel with your ruler. If your penis is curved, straighten it out. This is important for an accurate measurement.
- Take note of the measurement from the bone to the tip of your penis. That should be your BPEL. Follow these exact steps each time you need to take your measurement.
Aside from BPEL, one of the most common measurements used is BPFL or Bone-Pressed Flaccid Length. It has the same process as BPEL, except you need to grip the glans of your penis and pull it outward as far as you can without hurting yourself before measuring from the bone to the tip of your penis.
BPEL vs BPFL
While BPFL is a more convenient process as you can do it anytime without a full erection, BPEL is considered to be the most realistic penis measurement because that is your size when you are having sex.
These 2 processes will allow you to track your progress accurately so you don’t distort the progress you are making.

Importance of Looking for the Pelvic Bone
The pelvic bone is an ideal spot to look for because it doesn’t move anywhere. If you want to be consistent with your measurements, you need to base it on that bone.
Consider the Temperature
Varying temperatures is usually the reason why your measurements seem to be inaccurate. Vasoconstriction is the body’s way to preserve heat within the body. This usually happens when the temperature is cold. However, vasoconstriction also limits the blood flow to the erectile tissues, causing the penis to hang higher than it normally does.
On the other hand, warmer temperature improves blood flow to the penis. This is why you can reach your Fully-Hung Flaccid State during a warm weather.
States between Flaccid and Erect
Of course, you are well aware of the two common states of the penis: the flaccid and erect. However, the number of states in between those two is boundless, not to mention the negative size that you get during a shrinkage.
Remember, your penis size depends on the amount of blood that enters your erectile tissues. Most of the time, the blood flow is not the same. This causes the difference in sizes. Therefore, there is no guarantee that measurements done at different times are 100% accurate.
This occurrence complicates the process of getting the accurate measurements. To solve this, below are a list of benchmark states that can serve as your reference:
- Zero-Blood Flaccid State – This is your smallest size. It is when your penis is smaller than normal, usually when you are experiencing shrinkage.
- Fully-Hung Flaccid State – Can also be referred to as the ‘maximum flaccid state’, this state is when you have enough blood to extend your penis making it hang as low as possible. You will notice this happening just before it reaches a semi-erect state.
- 100% Erect State – Can be described as a ‘rock-hard erection’. This is the biggest you can get, and the blood flow to your penis is at maximum.
Knowing your true measurement at the very start of your penis enlargement program is crucial for your overall progress. An accurate starting measurement will help you determine if you are on the right path to success.
