checking penis sizeAnyone who practices natural penis enlargement knows that "measuring day" is an exciting time. It's on this day that the results of all your effort are calculated and your gains are measured. Accurately measuring the penis, however, especially it's flaccid (soft) state is not as simple as most would assume. The penis is like no other part of the male body and it's size changes from one moment to the next. Conditions such as emotional state, temperature and blood flow are all important factors in determining the size of the flaccid penis.

Generally, once blood engorges the two sponge-like tissue chambers known as the Corpora Cavernosa, the erect size of a penis remains constant. Flaccid penis size however, varies constantly and is not proportional to the erect state.

According to the Journal of Urology, the mean average length of the flaccid penis is 3.5 inches (8.8 cm). This data, while accurate for the most part, depends not only on how the measurement was performed but also on several other variables.

Any emotional states that are triggered, for instance the feeling one gets when viewing a very attractive woman, will cause a response that sends a larger or smaller amount of blood rushing to the penis. The level of excitement determines how much blood is sent and ultimately how engorged the penis will become. Blood flow is a very important part of penis size and any increase or decrease will result in a change in size.

Environmental conditions such as temperature are also important in determining penis size. Colder temperatures tend to shrink the size of the penis and testicles while a warmer climate will generally keep blood flowing faster and result in a larger penis. You can see for yourself how this effects penis size by first measuring your penis at 10 °C (50 °F) and then again at 30 °C (86 °F) to see the difference.

Since consistency in measurement is vital to tracking progress when performing natural penis enlargement, it is important to get accurate data while measuring your flaccid penis size. You should try to take all measurements using the same technique and in a location that has a constant room temperature. This will give you a more precise view of your progress and ensure that motivation doesn't suffer from inaccurate readings.
