It's month 8 in my 12 month Pump & Stretch Challenge. Learn how November went, and also discover an easier way to measure the length of your penis.
- No injuries to report
- Gained both length and girth
- Lack of motivation in wearing a stretcher
This month saw a measurable increase in both length and girth, despite logging zero hours in the Phallosan and X4.
While it's good to see results came without them, it doesn't make for an interesting challenge if part of it is left out.
But, since the purpose of these updates is to share everything, I'll share it regardless, even though it shows my lack of motivation in wearing a stretcher. Again!

Measuring is a Problem, So Here's Something Different
One of the problems I have been brainstorming solutions for is measuring. Why? Because gaining weight sucks and jabbing a ruler into your pubic bone isn't working! I'll explain what I mean below.
Here are the common ways to measure the length of your erect penis:
- Non-Bone Pressed Erect Length (NBPEL)
- Bone Pressed Erect Length (BPEL)
There are many tutorials on how to do these, but one of the best is this one on the penis enlargement forum ThundersPlace.org. The pictures are toned down and easy to understand, with measuring girth covered too.
Word of warning though: it's easy to get consumed by any space you come in contact with, especially when it is full of insecurities. You may just come back with penis envy if you stick around too long. Just my advice.
Chances are, you've done the side-by-side measuring method, which is the NBPEL way to measure your length. It is the most common, as it is the easiest. You hold a ruler next to your penis, with the bottom of the ruler at the base of your shaft, where you believe your penis starts.
The problem though, is it isn't the most accurate. Weight gain can actually shrink a persons NBPEL measurements, as fat accumulates around the pubic area, decreasing the visibility of the penis.
Your starting line now isn't as far back as you thought it was, and this confuses you, leading you believe your dink shrinked.
I started to realize that my starting line may be moving, which could be effecting my measurements.
Stress, money, work, money, stress, aging...
It adds up, and the result for some is weight gain.
It's said that for every 3o-50 pounds of weight gain, the penis can actually appear to shrink 1 inch. 1 inch!
It's clear, if you don't stay on top of your health, the first to go is your penis.
It's all apart of the penis life cycle.
In terms of measuring, these inconsistencies in our bodies can make it hard to get accurate measurements, and is why many men move over to using BPEL.
BPEL is done by pressing a ruler into your fleshy pad, against the pubic bone. This means literally jabbing it right on in there while fully erect, and then holding it there as you measure. For some this is easy. For others - not so much.
Where measuring BPEL gets really complicated, is when you add holding a camera to the mix.
Camera in one hand, ruler jammed in pubic area, hold erection... focus camera.. focus... aahhh - lost my erection.
This can make it difficult to visually log your results.
So, looking at the stuff I had, I threw together something that makes measuring length even easier.
If you've experienced the difficulties of fumbling between camera, ruler, and your erection, then maybe this can help you too.
Being consistent is the most important thing when measuring, and one way to improve consistency is to remove room for error.
- error in how you hold the ruler
- error in how you read the ruler
- error in your pictures
That last one is a big deal. With a simple angling of the camera you can make your penis appear to measure bigger against a ruler! One user on Thundersplace.Org did a good post on this, using pictures of a 5.25" tube of red paint to make a very good point - that it's easy to manipulate the size of objects in pictures.
It's easier to fudge measurements when you are holding the ruler. you could angle it unknowingly, your point of view could see the lines wrong. You could mess it up. There's more room for error doing it this way.
With this push tube, there's less chance for manipulation.
Of course, the problem here is that you can't straighten your penis out when you are measuring in a tube, but, if you want to include the straightening of your penis as a length gain, then by all means - do so. I see no reason not to, as it's considered an improvement by most men.
It's also my belief that measuring the penis should take zero effort.
This organ already consumes enough of our attention, and obsessively measuring with a ruler can deal a big blow to your mental well-being. The simple act of holding a 12 inch ruler, next to something the average man is less than half the size of (depending on what study you look at), can create feelings of inadequacy.
You shouldn't hover over those things. You've got more important things to do.
So, stick it in a tube, pull it out, look at the result.
Get on with life.
The final measurements were taken Nov 30th, and compared to October’s final measurements.
- Erection Length: +.125''
- Erection Girth: +.125''
- Kegels: 1000/1000 (+0)
- Morning Wood: 11/30 mornings
TA massive drop in competitive drive is a sign for me to get back to working out, and do what I can to get my testosterone levels back up, which increases my libido.
The studies are mixed on how testosterone actually increases libido... but while science can't seem to find the connection, my penis sure can.
The idea is that a higher libido will increase the number of nighttime erections and morning wood, which can keep pushing the volume capacity of the penis's chambers to the max. Every little bit counts.

Ways to Improve?
In last months update I mentioned using the Phallosan Forte App. To me it looked like an easy way to stay motivated to use the Phallosan more, but that all depended on how intent I was on adding my phone into the mix of my routine.
I wasn't, but I'll get around to it.
Till next time, happy pumping, and thanks for following along. Hopefully these updates have been of some value to you.
