You did make the point (both in an earlier thread & in this one) that even downward stretching has value only as in general stretching - i.e., tissue traction. You repeatedly dismissed any notion of “pulling out inner penis” - which is exactly what the surgical technique does. And you did reference inner penis, but stated that any “gains” would be due to the enlargement of the inner penis - not by “exposing” more of it.
I think I have stated that one can expect up to 0.5” from “pulling out the inner penis.” I think I downgraded my estimate to 0.1 to 0.3” after seeing must how shallow the angle of the pubic symphysis really is. The current version of the LOT simulator uses too steep an angle, IMO, so it slightly overestimates the gain. There’s also the fact that the ligs really aren’t so short in most men. They hang down like curtains. The simulator might underestimate lig length for most guys. When you put together the idea that the PS has a shallow angle with the idea that most guys have longish ligs, you see that most guys will gain very little, if anything, from “pulling out the inner penis.”
That said, I think you will probably find a guy here and there who can gain up to 1/2” or so just from releasing the lig. That will be the guy whose ligs are obviously very tight and who has an unusually long or vertical pubic symphysis. I don’t think a LOT measurement will tell you this. The best way to tell is through palpation or MRI.
Even if you were to find such a guy, he would have to work exceedingly hard to strip back his ligs to the base of his pubic symphysis. I don’t know whether one could really ever expect to do that nonsurgically.
I uploaded an image from the one surgeon’s website. I never thought the penis was “free floating” - obviously, that would be ridiculous (if it was, you could pull it out, push it in, move it all around to a huge degree). I know that it’s anchored to the bone. But if you look at that image, you can see the ligaments (the grey colored structures), and how they tend to “draw in” the penis - and upwards also.
Yea, I know you know that the penis isn’t “free floating,” but you’d be surprised how many people don’t. As far as the picture goes, I’m really not sure what you mean. Actually, I think the picture supports my point. It looks like you can pull that penis straight out at 90-degrees and the ligs would hardly resist. A guy with the anatomy shown in the picture might not gain anything by lig stretching (unless the was completely severed). Even then …
I’m not talking about “separating from the bone” the penis structure, but it loosening the restrictive action of those ligaments.
They don’t appear to be restricting much.
Well, the 1.5” claims were not the top claims - 2” were. I guess if you can prove this guy is lying, you might have the grounds for filing litigation against him.
Not personally. I haven’t suffered any harm. But one of his patients might.
LOL. That is what I used to think (I even used the same image of having your dick protruding from near your asshole). But that one site asserted - in print - that there was no change in angle of erection? How can this be? Furthermore, is it a deliberate falsehood?
Well, it depends on how you define “erection angle.” If the surgeon leaves some connective tissue behind, near the ischiopubic rami, then maybe a guy could still get a decent erection angle. But he’d have to be really erect. A half-mast erection would probably point straight down—or nearly so.
Is it a deliberate falsehood? That depends on intent. Does the doctor have any data to back up his claim?
I was not talking about complete severance either, only elongating them. I also believed that one’s AOE would change…but the one site directly contradicts this. I don’t know what the hard numbers would really be.
Without complete severance, there’s very little to gain by elongating the ligs. And complete severance is insane. So, I’m back to my conclusion: Lig gains are largely illusory. There might be some guys who can gain a little by “pulling out the inner penis,” but they won’t gain much. IMO, their efforts would be better spent on a more well-rounded PE regimen.
However, the gist of my rebuttal involved 3 premises:
(1) That “Lig Gains” are real
(2) These gains are the result of “inner penis” being freed from the body - as opposed to actual tissue traction/deformation, etc.
(3) I believe the range of these possible gains may vary widely (by as much as 100% between men).
Nowhere yet have those 3 premises been effectively refuted.
I think I’ve answered (1). They are “real,” but they’re also real small. I’ve answered (2). The gains may be the result of the inner penis being freed from the body. But … they’re really small. As for (3), I agree that the range of possible gains may be 100%—maybe greater—but the range in actual inches is between 0” and 0.5”.
Again (I repeat), I think lig stretching as part of a PE regimen is important, perhaps indispensible. We should do it, in moderation. But it’s not the holy grail. It should be part of a balanced routine.
