MEG - Mid Erection Girth
MEG is basically the circumference of the penis or the girth, at a full erection. Using a tape measure that most people would use for clothes you can wrap it around the middle of your shaft and measure the girth of your penis. This is the most common way of monitoring your penis girth and should always be measured at a 100% erection. This is shown in Figure 2 below.
BEG is the exact same as MEG only the girth measurement is taken from the base of the penis.
BEG vs MEG
MEG is used more commonly than BEG due to the fact that the center of the shaft is usually closer to the average girth of the penis. Just beware it does not really matter where you take the girth measurement just ensure that you are taken it from a consistent point along the penis. For example, the BEG is usually higher than the MEG so you cannot use one measurement one month and think you have grown because you used a BEG the following month.
Now that you know how to measure the penis, it is a lot easier to monitor your progress and see how you are gaining. One thing you may notice is that the measurements are all about erect size and not flaccid size. The reason for not using flaccid size is because it varies so much due to temperature, fluid levels, exercise and so on. However, when you increase your erect size you usually increase flaccid size also so fear not my friends :)
In my next post I will take you through the average penis size and how you can compare to the rest of the world. Until then take care :)
