Regardless of the theme of the thread - whether or not ballooning is PE - I am going to agree with the guys who believe that maintaining a max erection for as long as possible is a good thing.
I don’t balloon, so I don’t have a dog in that fight. But I do edge when I masturbate, and only to repeat, I think that riding the absolute maximum erection before letting go can only be good. Otherwise, as with most things body related, someone could train themselves to cum with much less than a full erection.
And considering that I have been exercising (body) since I was pretty young with sports, I know that overall work load can have an effect. Meaning that considering that other things are being done to the penis with PE, ballooning or edging can very well add to the stress that the penis is under, overall.
In fact, I do believe that a few of my edging sessions have added to my overall soreness - and subsequently, added to the overall stress that was put on my penis.
So, for sure, I think ballooning or edging can, at the very least, add to a PE regimen - and may even cause someone to begin to overtrain, if done too much.
Again, I don’t really have a dog in this fight, and while I am trying to remain neutral and not take sides (knowing that getting drawn into Internet debates can be time consuming), I might agree that ballooning (even though I don’t do it) or edging may have a ceiling and not be able to produce enough stress after a while.
But, again, along side other things, I can see it as definitely having the ability to add to a PE routine - when done responsibly, because I do believe it can be too much when other forms of PE are already stressing the penis. So finding the right amount, while tricky, is the key.
Did your dick explode? ;)
Not taking sides, but that is funny! :D
