Measuring for the first WMC

Postby tundraman » June 4th, 2012, 7:35 pm

Go ahead and read Jarods Guide on this - this is the same technique just reworded and using the plastic strips.
Jarod's measuring guide:
http://www.secretleather.com/jarod.johansen/#measuresteel

Warm up good ( whole body) use a string or cord that isn't very stretchy or carefully cut a 1/2 inch strip out of a plastic soda/ water bottle with scissors and use an Ultra fine point Sharpie to mark it. Take a dozen measurements on the hang just above the testes where you see WMCs worn - snug but not tight if using the band. Alcohol and a towel can be used to "erase" the Sharpie marks. Toss out the largest and smallest and add the remaining ten up and divide by ten. You will have the average circumference. Divide it by 3.14 to get the diameter. Note: 25.4mm per inch.
Once you get the average circ - mark it on the strip and wear it on your hang for 5-10 minutes ( a little piece of tape to hold it helps a lot - watch the sack hair - ) Comfy? (other than the plastic band diggin in a little) Now insert your fore finger to the first knuckle for 5- 10 minutes - still comfy, no fatigue feeling, enlarged veins, cooling balls, blue skin, etc. ( looking for strangulation signs) ? NOTE some guys have big fingers if so use your pinky or just the tip of your finger if so.
If all is good. Take the diameter and multiply it by .8 to get max WMC size and by .74 to get minimum size. This gets you the recomended range of sizes for you.
Normally, these will be in the range of 32 to 36 mm. Order a WMC between your minimum and maximum. Think large end of the range if balls are the same size and small end of the range if one teste is a lot smaller.

I picked the disposable non carbonated water bottle for the strips as they are available about everywhere and the walls are only 0.3mm thick. Thus the ID and OD of the strip bent into a circle will only differ by 0.6 mm.

Any chance for a video or pics with this guide?

I didn't take pics back then and it wouldn't be of much use to a starter measuring my current hang. The battle initially is getting loose enough in the hang to get a good hang ID as most starters have little or no neck down area between their body and balls. It's as easy to measure too large as too small. I know which way most error but I don't want to bias your results - yet.

Jarod's method of measuring states that you measure not the circumfrance of the balls, but right above the balls, which is far less wide.
Do I measure the circumfrance of (both) balls, or the less wider part above the balls??

You measure the circumference around your scrotum just above the testicules ( where the bottom ring should sit ). Snug, but not so tight that string or strip is constricting. Then run the math on that.

By multiplying with 0.8 you get a result that is SMALLER then the average circumfrance you measured, correct?

You multiply the diameter ( not circumference) by 0.80 and 0.74 to get the largest and smallest ID and pick an ID in between these two, and yes it is smaller.

I did bought a 40mm Id but it was too loose. What I just bought is 8 oz 32 and 34 mm so I am guessing that the 32mm if put closer to the ball and I gradually stack the other one on top of it I should be fine….Hopefully this will work!

The 30mm ring was perfect, bought a 32mm and 34mm ring later and both slipped off. But I can wear those on top.
