Let's talk about it.
I make the admission here and now that I am not familiar enough with the workings of anatomy to speak with authority. I have only the tools of reason, logic, inquiry, and research. Please correct me explicitly if my information is in error. I prefer accuracy and safety over pride.
Figure I’ll break my lurking to add to science.
Yaog, in order to stretch and expand a plastic bottle, you need to deform the matrix structure. Using the numbers given in the article, you would need almost two thousand pounds of pressure to achieve this deformation in the tunica. Many bad things will happen before you start gaining length this way.
Nice post though. Good to see some still people take in interest in the science behind PE.
This brings in another question. If your materials analysis is correct, DiegoKahn, then the substantial length and girth gains would have to come from something other than deformation. Assuming the following for discussion:
1: The tunica is a fibrous orthogonal matrix that is not likely deformable by increased blood into the penis.
2: The ligaments on the penis are stretchable as proven with [informal] empirical evidence Here on Thunder’s
3: The extreme methods used to enlarge the penis, producing substantial gains, include clamping, hanging, and powerful manual stretching (O-bends and BTC stretches). All of these use blood trapped in the penis to form a kind of buffer that pushes out against the restrictive tissue, as well as causing micro-tears in spongy tissue.
Question 1: If the tunica itself does not deform easily then how do we anatomically explain the substantial length and girth gains that require the tunica to shift, elongate, or expand longitudinally?
Question 2: If one tears or aggressively stretches tissue directly adjacent/attached to the tunica, and inducing an expansion/healing process, does the tunica & other restrictive tissue grow to accommodate the tissue produced during the healing process?
Speculation, Food for thought: Clearly, the tunica has changed shape as shown with several-inch gains made by Bib and others. Or has it? Does the healing process of expanded internal tissue cause the tunica to “grow” (adding new fibres to the matrix @ point of expansion)? If this growth with healing is the case, how do we explain extreme and rather sudden (compared to 1/8” over a few months) girth expansions such as that demonstrated by Arisotcane? is it possible that the for the large gains in girth and length, the penis has to be pushed beyond a certain threshold whereupon an anatomic fail-safe causes the tunica to expand to avoid crushing of tissue?
Reference Request: Does anyone know of, or have access to, a multi-axial cross ssectionof various points on the penis? I've examined Gray's Anatomy, but am a bit befuddled by it. Labels and measurement data would also be appreciated with any diagram.
