Clamping preventing length.

I can’t speak from personal experience. Around here, you often read that you should work on length before girth since it is harder to elongate something that is thicker. This pretty much sounds like nonsense to me. It would certainly be the case if the penis were totally homogeneous in structure like a steel cylinder. But since you are trying to stretch the ligaments (which are not affected by penis girth) and the tunica and septum with length exercises, you are talking about relatively thin structures. It doesn’t seem logical that these structures should become greatly more resistant to longitudinal stretch just because their circumference is greater.

Bib has always maintained that you should try to reach a length goal before targeting girth. His argument is two-fold. First, clamping may cause enough soreness of the shaft to make applying a hanger uncomfortable. Secondly, he theorizes that when hanging or doing other length exercises you are creating micro-tears in the layer of tunica that has its fibers oriented primarily longitudinally, and these have to “heal” with collagen cross-links. If you simultaneously are creating micro-tears in the layer of tunica that has its fibers oriented circumferentially you are liable to get cross-linking between the two layers which will limit future length gains by binding the two layers together.

You can attach pics, if you attach penis pics the thread will be moved. Try again.

The reason was that I did already attach that picture in my progress report. I was too sloppy to notice the error message…my mistake. Here is a link to it: PE091229_2.jpg

redbear52: The information about micro-tears in fibres in different direction kind of makes sense. That might be the case. The true reason I am concerned is that I have not reached my length goals yet and wonder if this goal might not be reachable unless I quit clamping and focus on length until I am there.

I think for some people clamping will yield length gains, especially if you have an upward curve. I find that at high engorgement during a clamping session I can feel pressure along the top of the shaft all the way along, almost as if my penis is doing a clamped bend on it’s own. Bending (dangerous!) then causes this pressure to increase and it feels like an amazing stretch.

After a clamp session my penis is noticeably longer, even if I haven’t done any length exercises that day.

Yeah I’m right there with you on that. I actually have stretched out further than I ever have before and I’m only clamping right now.

Clamping does not prevent length gains. I think what BG meant was that the added girth as a result of clamping could make length gains more difficult. Personally, I’ve gained over half an inch in BPEL from either clamping or pumping, either way, the gain occurred during my clamping periods.

Tweaking, I have the same experience.

Feels good to read confirmations that gains in girth does not prevent gains in length while it possible makes them more difficult. Then I can stick to my routine and plan. Going very well so far.

Interesting about clamping and getting length gains. I have read on threads people get some length from clamping. I am interested in about girth but will take any length gains. I know I am still a newbie but clamping seems alot easier then doing hanging or using and ADS. If anybody else gained some length from clamping I would be interested in their story.

If you never clamped you could of gained more. I believe having a thicker dick makes it harder to gain length because the body has to then grow more penis(girth wise) when you’re stretching it out. It’s easier to stretch something like a shoelace than a big snake I guess.

Although the subject isn’t that easy, I think that to have max length gains one should avoid girth work when he’s intermediate/advanced. The reason for this is that girth work fills your penis with blood, so augmenting the resistance against axial elongation.

On the other side, clamping exerts both lengthwise and girtwise force on your penis, so it is not impossible to have length gains from it.

I think if you are an easy length gainer, than you’ll gain length from clamping and any other technique.

It sounds a bit confused, I know. I remember having read somewhere (can’t search right now) that TA has two layers : one layer is responsible for augmenting the girth with erection, another layer for augmenting length. To be honest, I can’t figure out how this is possible from a geometrical point of view, but that’s it.

If what said right above is true, than your gains with clamping will depend on the degree of strength of those two layers. If the girth-responsible layer is stronger than your length-responsible layer, than when inside the penis pressure augments the length will increase more than girth, and you could have more easily length gains than girth gains. And the adverse.

The penis is not a perfect cylinder, but has more an elliptical shape. So, if your girth augments a lot, your length tends to deminish. You actually could lose some length when your girth increase, and the adverse. This explain why many advanced PEer can have a girthier penis when semi-flaccid than when erect.

Hope all this makes any sense.

I bow to your experience.

This thread is a huge relief to me. Clamping, here I come.
