“At the distal end, Buck's fascia is firmly attached to the base of the glans at the coronal sulcus, where it fuses with the ends of the corpora.”

Ok, can’t argue with your sources. I did a search but the best description I could find did not include this information. I admit my only internet access is on my android and researching is kind of awkward but I will admit I was wrong about this.

That being said however on the topic at hand it still seems that at least the connective tissue between the CCs and the glans has been stretched significantly. I see no other explanation as to why his BPFSL would be almost a half inch longer than his BPEL and his glans soft to the touch when he is otherwise rock hard. If the CCs extended into the glans appropriately the glans should at least be fairly firm even if padded.

If this was directed at me then no, I am not Fantom. Also as with Seren I admit I was wrong about this. I had seen no evidence of a connection between the tunica and the glans until Seren pointed me to it. I am not unreasonable, although I still disagree with your views on supplements I acknowledge you were right in this case.

Do you believe it is possible that the connective tissue has been stretched rather than the entire tunica being stretched to explain the significant difference between his BPFSL and BPEL?

The blood supply to the glans doesn’t come from CC.

I will endeavor to be less combative but from what I can tell the CCs should extend at least partly into the glans. While the glans themselves are the terminal end of the CS I think the CS has been pulled away from the terminal ends of the CCs somewhat by the extended use of an extender. Without the pressure of the CCs pushing into the glans the pressure of the glans would be reduced.

Doesn’t make any sense, sorry. I think it would better if you stopped doing the amateurish urologist. Put in a male mind the idea that his glans has been pulled away from the rest of his penis and you can cause him ED, I’m not kidding. Look at the place, this thread is in the newbie forum

Was not my intention to scare anyone and I made sure to state it was only a theory as I understand panicking someone is counter productive. That being said I think we are all playing amateur urologist, that’s pretty much what this place does. WantABiggerPeni stated a problem and I proposed a possible cause and solution. I don’t think that was irresponsible, discussion is how we further our understanding of PE including mechanisms and risks.

The pressure in the glans appears to be controlled entirely by the balance between influx through the CS and drainage through the dorsal vein. Having only partially inflated glans is perfectly normal. If it’s not inflating at all, I’d say the most likely cause is in the pelvic floor. For instance, holding a kegel with an erection will immediately inflate your glans greatly whereafter it will deflate to its smallest size - probably because the muscles block the inflow of blood when squeezed. Similarly, raising intra-abdominal pressure (commonly referred to as a “reverse” kegel) will inflate the glans (if done rather aggressively), possibly because it compresses the dorsal vein inside the body.

Additionally, for me personally at least, I find that if I’ve gone a while without ejaculation (as the OP describes) my erections can be a little strange. It may just be related to his abstinence.
It can also rely on arousal level.

Nope. If a professional opinion is required, we suggest direct examinanation by a Doctor instead than diagnosing some fancy imaginary damage. I hope if you have a friend who has a head ache you don’t tell him ‘Hey just checked with my Android, my sources suggest that you have brain cancer’.

To the OP:

a) There is nothing strange in having a softer glans than the penis shaft;

b) BPFSL growing more than EL is the norm; for the vast majority of those who report gains, the first growing is FL, than BFSL, finally BPEL. Youd don’t gain FL, SL and EL all at the same time. It is a process that takes days or week, where you have to learn how to use the new penis volume at your disposal. Beside that stretching per se tends to lower EQ.

Well, I know the glans aren’t supposed to be as hard as the shaft but it just seems like it doesn’t fill up with as much blood as it is supposed to. This really has me a bit concerned. I masturbated last night and got pretty hard and my shaft was fully hard but my glans just didn’t feel pumped with blood at all.


Current: 6.875 BPEL / 7.25 BPSFL / 4.7 MEG

Goal: 7.5 BPEL / 5.5 MEG

Gotcha. So do you think this could just be due to low EQ because of the extender?

Also, my goal is 7.5 BPEL. Right now I’m 6.8 BPEL and 7.25 BPFSL. Do you think once I hit 7.5 BPFSL I should stop using my extender and only do girth exercises to match my BPEL to my BPFSL? Pretty cool to think I’m only .25 away from my BPEL goal in BPFSL.

I agree that it could be a pelvic floor problem. For years all I did was regular kegels and I didn’t know about reverse kegals. Well whenever I masturbated I subconsciously held a regular kegal the entire time and my erections were awful. I couldn’t figure out why so I just kept doing more kegals.. Well about a month ago I learned about reverse kegals so I do them now and now when I masturbate I focus on relaxing my pelvic floor instead of tensing and my erections are like night and day. Maybe they are still tight though which is leading to the poorly inflated glans? I really need to do more reverse kegals and some pelvic floor yoga stretches.

Oddly, I’ve noticed that ever since I started reverse kegals, my ejaculate doesn’t shoot as far as it used to. It’s strange.. I can also pretty much gold a regular kegal as long as I want. Sometimes I hold a regular kegal for like 60 seconds while in my extender because it offers so much resistance.

I am personally very doubious that reverse Kegel’ could be beneficial to any male. If Kegel’s are bad for you, stop doing that. And avoid any kind of pressure or lack of blood in the perineum - so bicycle, sitting too many hours without pauses etc. etc.

I do not see any benefit in doing reverse kegels as an exercise.
I think it’s important to fully relax between kegels in order to avoid cycling between 50% and 100% contraction, but any attempt at “forcing relaxation” is pretty meaningless. Stretching on the other hand, I think is massively beneficial to the pelvic floor. A simple yet effective thing that I personally try to do daily is to go into a deep squat and simply sit there for a few minutes (will also do wonders for your ankles and hips - but be careful if you have weak knees).

That said, I’m still most inclined to relate this to your recent boycott of porn and change in masturbation habits. I’m probably not the best person to give you advice on this subject as I do not believe that the purported negative effects of porn are realistic in the proportions they’re usually presented. But regardless, I would not worry if I were you. If I am correct in my assumption, the problem should resolve itself in time, whether you continue your abstinence from porn or resume your old habits.

In relation, do note that erections which to not involve any significant psychological arousal can often be the kind you’re describing (hard shaft with little to no glans inflation) - this is often experienced with morning wood and can also include erections caused solely by physical stimulation. It is very likely that when it comes time to do the deed you’ll be sporting your usual wood.

Thanks man. I’m going to definitely start doing deep Squats everyday. I masturbated last night laying in bed. First time in a couple weeks. All I did was massage the head a little bit and within I’d say 30 seconds I got fully hard with no fantasy or imagination, just touch. But my glans didn’t get big like they should have. I also came in about 2 minutes.

I’m also a bit concerned because I never get morning wood or spontaneous erections like I used to. I used to wake up with morning wood so hard I could barely pee without getting it all over the place. Health wise I’m perfect. Perfect diet and exercise everyday.. I’m almost 25.
