When there is only circumference I have to divide it by three before I can convert it into centimeters.

I use circumference.

I prefer circumference. I find it's more accurate and helpful. There are toys with a 1 1/2" diameter that have between a 4 1/2" and a 5" circumference. 1/2" doesn't sound like a lot, but I can definitely feel the difference. Especially when it comes to anal toys, that 1/2" circumference can be the difference between a toy working for me and being too large to use.

Circumference means a lot more to me. Diameter means nothing cause I have toys that are the same in diameter, but quite different in circumference.

I use circumference in my reviews and prefer it. It's easier to relate to when looking the product page of the toy.

Circumference is most important. I have seen some toys where the circumference wasn't that intimidating, but the largest diameter measurement was kind of because of a weird shape. I like to see both.

I could never really grasp circumference in my head if someone lists it. So I prefer diameter.

I prefer both measurements, so I can visualize it better. But I also think circumference is generally going to be a bit more accurate (because it's just easier to measure), so if I can only choose one, I'd choose circumference.

I use both because they're BOTH helpful and some people like one over the other.

Me too, it's easier to figure the approximate size of a toy using diameter. But like others said, if a toy has a weird and uneven shape, then circumference is more accurate.

The most helpful is seeing side by side comparison pics.

I have just trained myself to think in diameter. But I also appreciate side by side picks with other well known objects.

I have no idea how this is possible.

Circumference = pi * diameter.

If the measurments are correct it isn't possible!!! Yet I see all the time while looking at dildos some have listed measurements that don't follow this rule. It drives me crazy. That is why I prefere the circumference. I find it to be more accurate. Also I have found that the manufacturers' measurements aren't always correct either!

Eh, okay. I'm kind of a science and math geek here, so this post doesn't make sense to me. A toy's circumference and diameter will feel the same inside of your body. They are two different terms that both describe the same thing...the toy's girth. Circumference is the distance around the toy, diameter is the length of a line passing through the toy. Even if the manufacturer hasn't listed the measurements accurately, they usually list the diameter as equal to the circumference using the formula JR has mentioned.

I use both. Since you can tell one from the other it shouldn't matter but overall I just tend to eye ball it by diameter and then figure out how well the circumference would fit in me.

This. I mentally cut a toy and visualize diameter. I can't do something similar with circumference.
