[All measurements adhere
to the American Genitalia Standards (AGS) of 1839]
The occasional positioning of the member in an upright position
against the body, held there by briefs and the like. Usually
temporary due to constant adjustments.
Scrunch: A condition when the member is all scrunched
up in no particular direction as the result of tight briefs,
bathing suits, and the like.
The distance of hang (see hang), that the member dangles in
the flaccid, non-attention position. Droop and hang often work
together to produce "flaccid face" (see "flaccid face").
Factor 10: Any member that naturally, without surgery exceeds
14 inches in length. Rare, very rare.
Face: The aesthetic appeal of the entire hang/droop
ratio effect. Testicular dangle can have a profound effect on
flaccid face (see hang, see droop).
Freeze: We all know this one, the effect of cold air
or water on the member. Can also occur when waking up in the
The circumference of member itself, as measured around the shaft.
AGS will not allow girth gain due to warts, scar tissue, moles
or large veins.
The direction of the member droop (see droop) when in the flaccid,
non-attention position. Hang can be effected by several factors,
that can also effect droop on occasion. Four markers are identified,
see "turtle neck," "brief scrunch," "flash freeze," and "belly
The measurement of the member from the upper shaft
at groin to the glans (tip or head). Extra length due to un-circumcised
skin is not allowed by the AGS.
- Log Roll:
A complete and utter un-predicted movement of the entire member
in a rapid repositioning wave that catches all off-guard Can
be very embarrassing, often needs self adjustment after a good
roll. Also see Rim Roll and Shaft Shift.
- Rim Roll:
A condition in which the head of the member seems to adjust
itself without assistance. Can be combined with Shaft Shift
to produce Log Roll. See Log Roll.
- Shaft Shift:
A condition in which during slight arousal, the member shaft
unexpectedly shifts from its current, or usual position. Not
to be confused with Rim Roll, a condition where only the head
of the member seems to slide into a new position. See Rim Roll.
- Taint Degrees:
The Alaskan Standard of full member measurement not recognized
but nonetheless respected. It is the full measurement from the
rectum to the member tip. Often used humorously in the Inuit
colloquial saying "I live Taint Degrees Nort of Here."
- Turtle Neck:
A condition not caused by elements where the flaccid
member is slightly surrounded by its natural bonnet creating
a turtle neck appearance.
