Default Guess the sex

I have read article after article on how to sex my red-tail boas. Some say the male has the longer tail and some say the female has the longer tail. One even says the males get bigger than the females which flies in the face of everything i have read. I dont have a vet nearby to probe them and would not dare do it myself. I wont try popping either. Even if popping is relatively harmless i dont want to cause them discomfort. I know the above 2 methods are the only to "accurate" methods. 2 of my boas are just over 2 years old and the 1 is around a year. The tails are different and i would appreciate an experienced guess at a means to sex them by sight.
1.2 Red-tail boas (Castro + Cheeky + Sally)
1.1 Ball pythons (Pablo + Che')
0.1 Dumeril's boa (Alegra)
1.0 African Grey Parrot (Waxy)
1.3 Dogs (Marley, Jemma, Chelsea and Sasha)
