Let's talk about girth

Seems like there's a lot of talk about length but not so much about girth. I think girth can be important too.

So do any of you guys measure girth? If so where abouts are you at? 4 inches? 4.25 inches? 4.5 inches? 4.75 inches? 5 inches? 5.25 inches? 5.5 inches? More than that?

(I'd like to set up a poll for this, but I don't actually know how its done.)

UPDATE

If someone knows how to do a poll, please feel free to help me out by starting a new thread with a poll. Thanks.

Agree. I've often thought girth could be more important to girls.

I wish I could set up a poll. I don't expect people to say their own measurements, but an anonymous poll could give some ideas as whether we (like all of us together) are mostly average, mostly below, or above?

From what I know, it'd be 5 inch girth (maybe just under) that is average.

I think a poll would be good, I know one has been set up for length but interesting to see what most people's girth is on here (anomalously). Unfortunately I don't know how to set it up

The other thing about girth, it's quite easy to get a clear measurement. You just go for the thickest part of the shaft and measure around with a tape.

(About length, you've got discussions about BP or not BP? Measured when standing or sitting? Measured on top or along side penis? Horizontal or normal angle?)

UPDATE

I'd add, in my case the above discussions could make a difference to result of plus or minus three quarters of an inch. So I'd say it's hard to compare like with like for length, if you don't know how others are measuring.

The length average is so blurred to me, which is why I say it's probably between 5-6 inches weather it's BP or NBP.

In my case BP makes such a big difference to my size so I chose to ignore it and only press lightly when I have ever taken a measurement.

Yeah, that's true. But what I find is even a real light press makes quite a big difference (half inch maybe.) I know it's crazy to get hung up over half of a fucking inch. But then, we are crazy, really, or we wouldn't be here. (No offence!)

Yep half an inch- a inch maybe makes all the difference to us. Which as you said, is crazy but to be as hung up over size as everyone is on here can be crazy in itself, justified in some cases, but still crazy

Another thing, if I do the stretched flaccid gizmo (like doctors use for penis size studies) I come back as being totally average. And that makes me feel like I'm losing my mind. Average? Uh-huh, okay. So how come it doesn't feel average then? Am I mad or something? Maybe I really am :-(

It's strange how some people's 'stretched flaccids' can be smaller than true fully erect size and some peoples can be bigger.

I definitely feel well off average and feel like I'm smallest that there can be, regardless of what average actually is. I drive myself mad over it, if only I had that extra inch just to be well in the comfort zone :(

Yeah, I'd say my stretched flaccid is very slightly more than my regular erection (quarter inch maybe.)

I'm one of those people who grows quite a bit during erection too. I wonder whether I would feel better about my erect size (which is by no means a total disaster) if my flaccid size would be a little bigger?

My stretched flaccid is ever so slighty smaller than my full erection but standing up, my erection isn't as big as laying down (weird).

I go through stages of thinking What I'd rather, a bigger flaccid or erect and I flick between what's worse. I would ask your size but I guess it's not necessary as we're all on here for a reason.

I don't feel easy giving exact numbers, because I don't know which exact way other folks are measuring. I don't like false comparisons.

But I'll say this: we are basically talking in the region of 5 inches length on top of shaft - slightly more or less depending on exact position. (EDIT position of ruler and of me!) With firm BP'ing it's maybe 5.75 inches. Also I point up quite steeply when erect and my balls are quite far back, so underneath it's more than on top.

Girth is about 5 inch at widest point (for me two thirds up shaft.)

Totally agree about standing up measurements being slightly less.

Everything you have said is the exact same as me. I guess there are people similar/the same size as me

That's spooky! :)

But here is a thing, if you're still a young guy I got some good advice. You got to face down this SPS shit while there's still time. Don't suppress it. Don't turn to other stuff like drink, drugs. Find the right girl, settle down sooner rather than later. And stay the hell in shape. You don't want to wind up 40 something and half the time needing low dose Cialis pills to be confident of an erection that lasts longer than 2 mins.

(And yeah, I'm speaking all from experience.)

Thanks for the advice but it's definitely easier said than done where I hear all these things about people being humiliated for having sizes similar to mine

In fairness, I don't see widespread evidence of guys in the 5 inch range being humiliated. I got no doubt it happens, because there are fucked up people who will shame and humiliate others for literally anything, weight, shape, teeth, clothes. But I don't think it's so common.

But let's go back to topic: girth.

Maybe girth is the more important thing over length? (And for us, I'd say we're definitely not under average on that count.)

I think length is more of a visual thing, girth would be more important in terms of actual sex. I wonder what people think is more of an issue for them on here, girth or length.

For me, I have no issues with my girth at all but I haven't given it too much thought as it isn't as discussed in my experience

Yeah, again, that's exactly the same for me. I always knew, like even just from instinct, that my girth was cool. And seeing size studies has always confirmed it.

I suppose we should be thankful for whatever small mercies we have, because there are some poor dudes out there who are totally hammered for both length and girth. It could be always worse.

Yeah I knew girth was never a problem from the start.

That's very true and I'm thankful for what I do have but the reality is, most guys have more and most guys have more experience which sucks. It's not even like I could make up for it with skills lol

Nah, you don't want to beat yourself up about smoke and mirrors. The important thing is to find the right person for a good quality long term relationship in my humble opinion.

(This is one of the things I consistently screwed up, you see. I passed over numerous good options when I was younger. And now I'm a beat up bastard with other issues apart from body image.)

I'll take your advice on board, thank you!

Have you had fears about body image/size your whole adolescent life or are they fairly recent? If you don't mind me asking

If anything it is less now, cos I've other serious issues. But it still flares up now and again, if I daydream about getting my life back on track and finding a stable relationship if it's possible and not too late :(

This is why I urge younger guys to get a grip. (But yeah, I totally know that it's easier said than done.)

One thing I can say is that it's never too late! Was there a reason your issues started or has it been there since you can remember?

I'm hoping one day I'll wake up and just not care about it. (Wishful thinking)
