Erect bends

Erect bends

Erect bends! (Danger danger)

I have been doing erect bends lately. Getting a 100% erection and then forcing/pressing the penis down between the legs. This gives an incredible stretch at the base of the penis. After three bends my penis is sore at the base, for a whole day. The soreness resides in the ligs, which might point to length gains.

My question is if anyone has opinions/experience with this kind of exercise. I was unable to find anything specific about it using the search tool - Therefore I made this thread.

Stretch

I speculate here - ModestoMan probably knows more - that bending erect will a lot more pressure on an inflated tunica + sinusoidal (?) structure inside than it was designed for. It’s not just the ligs that are getting a good stretch, you are also crinkling up the area on the underside of your shaft. Ever see a pipe being bent? It folds in all strange ways and collapses on the bent side when you bend to far / too narrow radius. I think you might be risking something similar there.

Is the soreness around the base only on the upper half of the shaft (suspensory lig) or is it also felt on the underside? I’d be a bit careful if you feel sore on the underside as well.

Your soreness may not be ligs. Forcing the penis between your legs while fully erect would bend the internal structures (as mgus said) before it would do anything to the suspensory ligaments. The potential for rupture of the corpora cavernosa is there and the practice is not recommended.

If you push your erect penis down to a comfortable level, no more than might happen in normal intercourse, and then massage the ligaments while they are on a mild stretch you shouldn’t do any harm and will do the ligs some good, but be cautious.


Heat makes the difference between gaining quickly or slowly for some guys, or between gaining slowly instead of not at all for others. And the ideal penis size is 7.6" BPEL x 5.6" Mid Girth.

Actually I strongly disagree. What he’s trying to say is not an ‘Erect BEND’. What he’s simply doing is pushing his erect penis (in the same erect form) down between his legs. The penile structure is intact and unhurt. Furthermore, there is next to no pressure on the tunica since the penis is simply being pivoted at it’s base. What you would feel however, is an INTENSE stretch in the suspensory ligaments at the base, and as you push down, you can definitely see the ligaments on the connection point of the penis to the pubic bone being stretched.

I noticed this while clamping for a set after 4 sets of bib @ 13 lbs. I was already fatigued and a slight push made me aware of the stretch. I then experimented with it without hanging/warming up, and I can tell you right now this CAN be dangerous if you haven’t warmed up enough. When you get an erection the ligaments are not as flexible as they are when you’re flaccid (obviously). So I would recommend hanging (or doing manual stretching like the A-stretch) to fatigue the area, and then clamp, and slowly push down your erection for further stretching the ligaments.

My 2 cents.

Vaseline; check the anatomy and physiology sections of the site. Throughout the rest of the body ligaments exist to stabilise joints. In the case of the penis, one of the primary jobs of the ligaments is to ensure that the penis doesn’t get bent/pushed down too far. In other words, to protect it from damage. Yes bending the penis down will put a stretch on the ligs but the potential for damage to other structures is far too great to recommend this method when there are plenty of safer alternatives for stretching the ligaments.

Fire,

I understand the physiology of ligaments and their function to stabilize joints. I am a professional bodybuilder, and understanding kkinesiologyand bio-mechanics is nothing knew to me. My question to you is this however:

I agree with you that it is the function of the suspensory ligaments to keep the erection angle above a certain limit, and also prevent it from getting pushed down too much (hence why those who get PE surgery cannot hold their erection up). But what I seem to be confused about is this:

How is pivoting the penis around it’s base, without bending the penis itself, put stress on anything other than the ligaments?

Thanks in advance for answering my question.

The internal parts of the penis are firmly attached to bone. This is mainly to keep them from moving in and out during intercourse and to enable a connection between the moving pelvis and the penis during thrusting. Your idea of swiveling around the base would work if the penis stopped just under the skin and was not firmly attached. However, for most guys there is a considerable amount of “inner penis,” probably around four inches. The corpora cavernosa diverge from each other and the ends (the crura) each attach to its respective side of the pelvis. The blood filled CC do continue under the skin and it’s possible to force them far enough to cause a problem.

You’re correct that the term “erect bend” is usually applied to manipulating the external part of the erect penis with gentle side pressure or squeezing. And I’m sure you’re right that there is some pull on the ligaments, but that depends on each guy’s anatomy, how much “inner penis” he has, and the angle at which the various parts sit in the pelvis.

I’m all for lig stretching, but I’m much more for safe PE.

OK I now understand your concern. I initially thought you were worried about trauma inflicted upon the ‘outer’ portion of the penis. I now understand that the inner structure is of concern. Very good point, and one that should be kept it in. Perhaps a note of caution should be emphasized before such an exercise is to be performed.

VK, my reply to your question would have been the same as Westla’s.

I was a bodybuilder when I was much younger; now I make my living from sports therapy and teaching martial arts, so anatomy and physiology is my ‘stock in trade’. I know the anatomy of the penis very well, but there are plenty of guys on here who ‘understand’ it better than I do. Westla’s one of them, and well worth listening to!

(Slightly off topic, but there’s another current thread I was going to reply to on gaining mass without paying a fortune for weight gainers/whey etc. If you can find it you could help the guy out. I was going to post some links to various ‘blender bombs’ but most of them use commercial supplements. I find my digestive system gets overloaded if I eat enough solid food to make good gains so I use supplements, or drink about a gallon of milk a day, which gives great results but bad gas!).

Alright that clarified things up a bit. By the way, Westla you made some good points.

Stretch

I think the key word used that created the red flag for everyone is “force” the erect penis between the legs. All PE should never be forced.. Even when you need to apply greater pressure.

For all everyone knows, you could have what is referred to as a “flexible or springy penis” meaning it can stretch in such a way with less potential to injury than others.

I am currently doing erect bends. 100% erect, grab around and just under the glans (Palm down) and use either a one or two finger okay grip around the base. Then slowly ease into the stretch. As your erection goes down it will bend more easily. It is here where I begin to use a very slow up and down movement with the top hand to bend the penis at different locations on the shaft. 30 seconds each side.

It is natural for the penis to bend/fold when becoming less erect. And unlike a plastic or metal pipe, a biological living penis reclaims it’s shape after such a stretch. Obviously gaining extra flexibility from the decreased erection. Acting sort of like a hybrid of an erect and flaccid penis.

So how exactly is that a DEFINITE red flag? Every PE has the potential for injury. As long as the person is taking it slow, paying attention to what their body tells them they should be fine. YES you need to have at least 6 months experience/conditioning before considering doing such stretches, but if applied like all PE there should be minimal risk at best.

There are a lot of ppl in here who quickly jump to conclusions about the way somebody approaches PE.
