How to do the stretch test? to the Pubic bone?

Postby edwardl007 » Wed Jan 09, 2019 5:25 pm

I keep hearing press the ruler down to the pubic bone. But if I do that it seems to me that that yields another 1-1.25 inches to what my penis appears to me w/o the pressing and visibly normal.

What am i doing wrong? or am i really bigger than i think?? Say it is so :-)

I believe the reason for pressing "to the bone" is to compress the pubic fat pad. If you gain or lose weight, the fat pad will change dimensions and therefore change your apparent penile length. Compressing the fat pad does not completely eliminate that variable, but it does minimize it.

A compressed fat pad is also more consistent than if you don't compress.

I have a measuring string clamped in a hemostat and press that as hard as I can for a consistent measure. It is less uncomfortable than a ruler.

if I didn't compress tightly to the pubic bone I would be about an inch and a half shorter . medical sites always pressed to the Bone for accurate measurement . According 2 studies that mirrors a full e r e c t i o n
