I think the firm flaccid is a symptom of an underlying cause. If you penis is uninjured, I believe, you should not experienece the firm flaccid, ever. That in mind, I think having good EQ (plenty of good blood flow) is usually sufficient to counteract whatever the actual cause of the firm flacid is (leakage? lack neuronal stimulation? weak pelvic floor muscle?). However, if, for whatever reason yoru EQ happens to drop from say over-training or whatever, and you do have this underlying injury, then the flacid erection symptom will no longer be masked, and it will ‘come back’, though, I think, the cause never truly healed.
This is certainly true for me. When I am dehydrated/stressed/miss a week or two of PE and/or jack off too much, immediately the firm flacid returns. I have noticed that herbal supplements, which raise my EQ and promote peripheral blood flow, will reduce the frequency of the firm flacid for me.
This theory of mine allows for the discrepancy we see in different people. I’ve always thought the cause of the firm flacid (often accompanied by deflated glans) was due to venous leakage, recently I’ve come to find that pelvic floor and nervous stimulation may also be contributing or even causing these symtpoms. So basically the severity of the underlying cause will determine how prone you will be to having a firm flacid penis, if you have the underlying injury. For some with the injury, they will only get it after seriously over-training, possibly in combination with stress/depression, while others will have the firm flacid all the time.
Didio I’ve come across that site before. Dr. Richards certainly does sound marvelous, but I do wonder about the legitimacy of anything that he’s saying. It all sounds very professional, but I am skeptical of the claims of his ‘SR-cream’ which supposedly increases ’ local prostaglandin E1 and Nitrix Oxide for tissue regeneration and scar tissue dissolvement’ even though it’s applied topically to the skin, not sure how that works…
That being said, it is awfully tempting to buy his products, just to check! :D
