Myths and false ideas in PE
I thought about initiating a thread to expose ideas traditionally accepted on this Forum though they may be incorrect. If you know about such, please bring them into attention. A proof based controversy never hurts and brings clarification.
I start it with two ideas I heard many times on this Forum without anybody rejecting them:
1. Erection brings fresh blood to the penis (or increases blood flow to the penis)
Actually it’s quite the opposite! Erection is based on partial restriction of venous outflow. Inflow will be restricted shortly after at the same value as the outflow, below the level preceding erection. Instead of fresh blood, there will be stalling in circulation.
2. By loosening the ligaments we can pull out the inner penis.
I think it’s one of the biggest myths of PE. It is told on the newbies stretching instructions page also.
Knowing that 1/3 of the penis is inside the body, it’s tempting to imagine pulling it out. Unfortunately it’s just a naïve idea.
Before I get stoned, let’s see what the truth is. Stretching the ligaments allows the erect shaft to get into a lower position with an altered erection angle. The normal upward curve at the base of the outer penis is being “unwrapped” in a straight line. It does an apparent lengthening of the penis with the amount of transforming a circular segment into a straight segment. It yields a measurable length gain on the expense of an unnatural lower position of the erection. This is the fact and that’s all. The internal penis it’s not involved.
The internal penis is not a telescopic pipe waiting to get rid of ligaments bounds to be allowed outside! It is not floating inside the body, but well anchored there. I am not aware of physiological reasons for the root of the penis to exist, but from a practical point of view I know it cannot be pulled out for the simple reason it is extensively and solidly attached to the perineum and pubic rami. If this internal linking was not such an obstacle, lengthening surgery would have been targeting it for sure.
