Newbie with a few questions
First of all, I´d like to say I´ve been lurking here for the past few months and the site is truly incredible. There´s a feeling of solidarity that I respect admire, and furthermore, hope to form a part of in the coming months/years. I recall at age 15 I went to the doctors and I plucked up all my courage to tell him about my concerns regarding size. Despite being massively below average at the time (it grew a decent amount since then) he said that it was “within the normal range” and that it “will not affect any aspect of your sex life”. As a logical person, I pretty much accepted what he said for a short while. After all, it would be ludicrous to believe that a doctor´s opinion on this matter would be incorrect. Furthermore, I asked him whether there would be anything like testosterone injections that I could take to improve my size. He said that that would only be done in extreme cases. That the sideffects would be far worse than the potential benefits. He said he would take some tests to see if I had any hormonal imbalance. When the tests came back positive, he was done with me. When I asked him about testosterone injections, he further added that there was “No way you could enlarge the penis” through any alternative methods, thinking perhaps that as a 15-year old kid obsessed by his shortcomings, I may have been on the internet searching up penis enlargement methods (which I was :-) ) Because all I could find online were an endless stream of sites with made-up testimonials looking to sell you all sorts of unapproved pills and fancily-titled devices, I gave up for a while and distracted myself with other things. I didn´t socialise, and every night I would go to sleep severely depressed. I stopped caring about my work, I stopped caring about being competitive. Ultimately, I didn´t see the point in working towards any social or academic goals if I would never be able to shake off my one “redeeming” characteristic — that is to say, my extremely small penis size. (At that time, I was about 16 and my erect penis measured around 3”). I felt like a freak.
However, my faith was completely changed by Thunder´s Place. Since discovering this forum, I realise that there IS some hope. Even if it´s unlikely that I will experience massive gains, the possibility exists. Furthermore, I am not greedy (at least not at the moment!) and so an increase of 1” in both length and girth would make me incredibly happy. Ideally, I would aim for a 7” x 5.5” penis, which I think is a far better ideal than the “8x6” monster. Still, anything that doesn´t stand out as small and I´ll be happy. Also, my flaccid size is quite poor, around 3” x 3” and so I would be looking to increase this significantly, in particular the length. What I find amazing about TP is that it´s clear by the sheer number of users, and the uncensored posts, that it ISN´T a load of bs. This stuff has worked for some people, with nothing but positive effects. What killed me for so many years, is the helplessness that I felt. I thought it was exactly the same as height. What you´ve been given, is yours for life. I am not that strong of a person, I wasn´t ready to accept my size forever. If nothing else, these past couple of months, Thunder´s Place has given me hope. Although I haven´t even begun PE´ing, I am much happier in my life than before I found this site, because I see light at the end of the tunnel. For that alone, I thank every member.
Still being considerably under average size (approx 4.9” erect length bp x approx. 3.8” erect girth) I could write endlessly about negative experiences, about how my confidence is at rock bottom and about how my teenage years (I´ll be 20 soon) have been very badly affected by the insecurity caused by my size. I´m sure it would make a good read, and one that plenty of tp´ers could relate to. However, I´m hoping that I show some increase in size after a few months of PE´ing before I write a long post talking about this. I would love to make some progress and THEN write a post, with comparison pics, as this would certainly be a more inspirational/motivational post than one that solely talks about painful past and present experiences.
I do have a few questions that worry me and that have resulted in my extended lurking, rather than starting up with the newbie routine.
1. Lets assume somebody has a 6” x 5” penis which, as a result of PE, becomes a 8” x 6” penis. Now, some other guy NATURALLY, with no PE has a 8” x 6” penis. My question is, which would be healthier? Factors would be sexual performance, appearance, potential health issues down the line, etc. Would it be a reasonable analogy to suggest that there are some people with a somewhat thinner build, but who work out regularly at the gym and do weights. After a while, this person might pack on lots of muscle, and reach the same weight as another guy who is naturally more well toned and heavier, but who doesn´t do weights. Although the former has exhausted more of his potential, his physique is certainly much more appealing than the latter, who may be able to achieve greater gains, but who hasn´t put in any work. I hope that comparison isn´t too confusing, but if it is, simply disregard it and just look at the original question instead.
2. How come some people seem to have no size increases or minimal increases, whereas others have massive gains? If you apply this to other areas, such as bodybuilding, I understand that some people naturally have more potential, put in more effort and consequently see massive gains relative to others. However, there is no doubting that anybody who applies himself to bodybuilding will notice a significant increase in muscle / mass, better tone etc. It strikes me as odd that a systematic approach towards the enlargement of a part of the body (which seems to have at least some medical foundation) could work so well for some and have NO effect on others. It´s the “zero effect” that really concerns me. Can this simply be attributed to a lack of dedication on some members´parts, or is there more? I don´t think I´ve stumbled upon any thread that has satisfactorily explained this phenomenon. Perhaps someone could point me in the right direction..
3. Why are there so many ex-members? Thunder´s Place seems to be a very peaceful forum, where members are courteous and supportive at all times. I don´t understand how there can be so many people that have gotten banned. I see this whenever I read an oldish thread. Regularly enough, someone who posted in that old thread has “Ex Member” on their title. I mean, perhaps this doesn´t mean that they were banned, but rather that they haven´t logged on in so long that they effectively cease to be members. Could somebody clarify why this is the case? The people who are “Ex Member”s were once legitimate posters as far as I can tell from the few posts of theirs that I have seen. Did they simply cross the line in some thread?
4. What is the average increase experienced by people after PE´ing for, say, a year? I mean, at 4.9” x 3.8” I stand out as very short. However, with a bit over 1” gain in length and girth, I would approx. Have a 6”x5” penis.a decent size by all accounts. With that, I would already be able to shake off the stigma of being a “man with a very small penis” which has haunted me ever since the age of 13-14.
Anyway, I will end this rant, as I meant to make my first post reasonably short in the first place! Looking forward to forming a part of the TP community.
