First month: 14 x 38
It’s been a month since I discovered Thunder’s, and I promised myself I’d wait that long before I concluded or posted anything about what’s happened with me. (Actually, that’s a lie.there’s one post about burning the inside of my dick.)
First, the gains: a definite 3/8” girth gain (5 —> 5 3/8). That’s an easy number for me to measure, not much uncertainty. BPEL started at what I thought was 6”, and over the course of a month I thought I saw it increase to 6 3/4” (I.e. 3/4” gain). But I’d apparently been fooling myself: some of that gain came from pressing the ruler farther down on my pubic bone, and maybe from holding it at a slightly different angle (my erection points at 10:00) or sighting along a slightly different direction, or from slight increases in erection strength. So now even my starting measurement is in doubt, and I’m acutely aware of how hard it is (!) to for me to measure BPEL consistently.. So I’ll be conservative and claim 1/4” gain, which I’m sure of. (This measurement good is acutely embarrassing, since I’m a scientist and even posted about measurement uncertainties).
This seems like pretty good numbers—even if it’s just “newbie gains”—but it might stem from a couple things which make me weird and different (besides being interested in PE, I mean!). First, I’ve got a 1.5” steel rod through the head of my cock (“apadravya piercing”), so lots of PE exercises, like reverse jelqs and hangs, are impossible. Second, I’ve gotten addicted to a very extreme form of edging (I coined the term “hourgasm” a few years ago; google it), basically continuous orgasms w/o ejaculation. I’d swear a new, even-more-intense refinement has helped me put on another 10 pounds of muscle in the last few months (I’m pretty buff, about 188 at 5’9” and maybe 8-9% bodyfat). Oh yeah, and I only ejaculate once every few weeks, even though I hyper-edge for at least half and hour a day.. I’ve discovered really like being as turned-on as possible.
I’ve been a gymnast and done yoga and intense stretching—I can do the straddle splits without much warmup, something I only learned at age 40—so I have a good sense of how hard I can push my body safely. So yeah, I’m weird all over.
Here’s what I credit my gains to: hot stretching and squeezes. The hot stretching is just tugging my dick over a space heater (I understand that ligaments stretch better and keep their stretch if warmed above body temperature.. The best reports used ultrasonic heating, which I don’t have.. Suggestions, anyone?) The squeezes are like horse440’s, but since I can’t actually move my hand over the dick-head (remember that steel rod?), I do this: with a near-full erection, just make one “OK-tourniquet” at the base, another right below the glans, and squeeze them both to the point of mild discomfort and “stretch” feeling for 20-30 seconds. Restore the erection (it’s actually easier now!), and repeat. After 10-20 minutes of this, it often leaves some burst blood vessels at the surface, so I may take a day or two off until they’re gone. But it’s given me a definite girth gain in the first couple weeks, so I know it works.
And I know, as a newbie, I’m not supposed to be doing those squeezes for another couple months. But it’s my body, I know it’s limits pretty well, and it seems to be working for me. (But no WAY am I recommending anyone else do this; I’ll leave recommendations to the experts).
On the other hand, there’s a good chance that my hyper-edging (and refusal to ejaculate) is helping the gains: boosted testosteroone, growth hormone, something like that. All I know is it feels good and gives me more energy (and muscle) than I thought possible. So I can explain it more if you want.
Thanks for running a great source of info!
