Ballooning is not PE
There’s a lot of talk about ballooning on these forums at the moment and a lot of disinformation about it.
Let’s look for a second at why people see a difference in penis size (sometimes soon after starting):
Firstly the tissues of the penis have not built up any resistance to growth when you start PEing. This seems, by all accounts, to make the process of real enlargement more rapid initially.
Breaking this down a bit:
Gains might come initially from stretching ligaments. I’m not the greatest anatomist but I’d say from the pics/diagrams I’ve seen that this stretch is occurring mostly if not exclusively in the fundiform ligament. Stretching doesn’t seem to radically alter erection angle and it does seem to add length, in the initial stages. You can also feel the fundiform taking the strain. The permanence of this is probably about as much as for stretching any ligament in the body, there is a great chance of reduction after exposure.
The Tunicae will also not have had internal pressure brought to bear on it to the level that jelqing can and does (when performed correctly) and certainly nothing like clamping, Horses, or Ulis. Nor has it been stretched with some force. Tissue (even that as tough as the tunicae) has a limit to it’s ability to resist force and it seems that in the early stages of PE this process is simpler.
Secondly erection level can become degraded even in those who are younger rather than older but it hits those in their mid to late twenties and upward more. PE has, as a natural side effect, the ability to increase erection level. All those BC exercises, the jelqing at a good erection level on a regular basis all adds up to better quality erections.
This second (side) effect of PE is what ballooning also targets. Ballooning can never bring enough pressure to bear on the tunicae to result in permanent deformation. Ballooning does not target the ligaments. Ballooning is not PE. If the only “PE” you’ve done is ballooning. Try stopping for 2 months and see where you are.
