Radial vs. longitudinal tunica girth proposal

Radial vs. longitudinal tunica girth proposal

Radial vs. Longitudinal tunica
Alright fellas, I have a lot of good insight on this issue. I am a bit of a PE vet and have done loads of research. I have studied things from the masters such as BIB, Saiyan22 (Kingsnake at MoS), Radiohead, DLD, Namsokiesk at PE gym and a couple others. Some have stated how they gained better at semi-erect jelqing vs. Full erect jelqing. Now I understand many have gained from erect girth exercises and many have gained only from semi-erect. For girth I will explain why semi-erect exercise can in many cases work better.

Perhaps you have heard from some PE’ers that the tunica(s) become very rigid at the highest erection level. Some have made the observation that their semi-erect girth is a bit greater than their fully erect girth. The longitudinal external layer of the tunica (length) becomes taught, and the inner radial tunica layer (girth) pushes against the external (length) tunica at the highest erection level. When you are doing 100% erect girth exercises you are working against both the resistance of the girth and length tunica layers. When you are working girth (via jelqing, squeezes, etc.) at lower erection levels, lets say 60-70-80 % most of the pressure is going to expand the girth layer with out the resistance/reinforcement of the length layer as it is not pulled taught.

In conclusion, my two cents, sates that one should (if they are aiming at girth) work at high, but not too high, erection levels. It is a balancing act. Also the tunica(s) are considered a connective tissue. Whenever we are doing stretch length work or expansive stretching girth work, either way we are stretching connective tissue. Sports trainers have told us that stretching this tissue is a bit different than stretching pure muscle. For connective tissue, lower force longer duration stretches are best. I’d love to hear feedback on this. Peace.

I would think that the longitudinal tunica’s contribution to the radial tensile strength is very small compared to the radial tunica. I’m having a hard time imagining that it would really impact your results much.

If the lesser girth experienced at full erection was due to the longitudinal tunica restricting girth, that would mean that it was as strong as the radial tunica, making the latter obsolete. The way I see it, It’s more likely to be caused by skin bunching and fluid.

Lets say your dick is 7 inches long fully erect and 5 inches wide fully erect. Now lets say your flaccid length is 3 in. And your flaccid girth is 3 or four inches. Now during the process of an erection forming most men will find that they will reach their full girth long before they reach their full length, e.g. During a semi erection they can have 5 in. Girth and 5 in. Length. There is something to this. In many case men who were trying gain girth while fully erect during exercises only started gaining girth when they switched it up to semi erect girth exercises. Not saying this is always the case, but this is definitely a factor each individual man must explore during his PE journey.

What you’re describing is most likely due to the surface area contributing to girth expansion during erection being much larger than that contributing to length (effectively less than the cross section area). The girth-wise expanded, yet pliable, state allows you to put force on the radial tunica in more than the radial direction, but I don’t see how that would help.

It’s definitely worth exploring (as all things PE) but I still don’t think that the longitudinal fibers give rise to enough radial tension to really make a difference. That being said, I’m not ruling out the possibility that some other mechanics might cause semi-erect exercises to be superior for girth.

I think you’re probably right.

I agree that this might be the case for exercises like bends and maybe even Uli’s but for Clamping personally I feel it is better to be fully erect. I find the more pressure there the more expansion I get. This expansion during clamping seems to increase after a few weeks/month followed then by actual girth gains when not clamping. Whenever I noticed my clamped girth has expanded I know gains will be coming soon.

I think he’s basically right too.

Basically right but as always, it is up to the individual to see in which state you can get the most expansion on your girth exercises. But at the same time don’t squeeze the living daylights out of your dick. That’s because of this other bit I read about “creep” and stretching connective tissues. Best is lower force long duration. It is a balancing act.

Stress-relaxation tends to happen with longer timeframes and lower tissue loading/stress. Creep tends to happen with higher loading/stress. Of course both happen together at the optimal level of stress/time. :)


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.
