Can flaccid be longer than erect?

Can flaccid be longer than erect?

Okay, so this might sound a silly question at first, but bear with me. We have all heard of the standard “grower vs shower” by now. But, is it possible to have a longer flaccid penis that actually gets shorter in length as it becomes erect?

I have heard of this once, but was unable to verify if it was accurate or a joke. Also, personally I notice that the difference between my erect and flaccid is generally only 1cm, however you guys must’ve noticed when you tug or stretch your penis put for a second or two it immediately gets that little bit longer for 15 seconds? Well, for me that extra amount is 1cm. Which makes my flaccid length = erect length.
I’m very accurate with my measurements so there is no error here.

The basis for my question is that I have been using an extender properly for just over a month now and after taking a few days off, i see that my flaccid is a little longer already. Maybe this is temporary - it probably is - but it doesn’t change the question.
In this time i haven’t seen any erect length gains. So I’m asking if it is physically possible to have a flaccid length longer than erect? Does anybody have this or has heard of this?

Thanks for any replies,

L-Z

A month isn’t Iong enough for resuIts to begin to show, but I understand your concern.

Keep doing the work.


Began December 2009 at 5 7/8" length and 5" girth.

As of December 5th 2012 7 3/8" BPEL and 6 1/8" base girth.

Going for the magic 8"x6"

Thanks for the reply, but maybe my question wasnt clear. I was asking if its physically possible for a flaccid penis to be longer than an erect one?

I doubt it. Can’t see how more blood in the penis could make it shrink.

Because of the contraction of the skin as the penis girth increases (the expansion of the CC) due to the increased bloodflow, perhaps?
For example, i think my 90% erection is a few mm longer than my 100% one. Or perhaps the slight upward curve which only forms at full erection is the cause of the reduced mm?

Genuine question and would look forward to some insightful answers

Anybody? Genuine interest in an answer here.

I am in no way qualified to give a definite but my opinion is a flaccid couldnt be bigger unless maybe measuring a different day with a different blood flow. So on Tuesday things might factor to give you a better EQ resulting in a better flaccid hang and erect length. Then on Friday due to dieting your EQ can be down so your flaccid on Tuesday might be bigger than your erect on Friday.

But in the moment, if I’m flaccid and then I get hard, I can’t see anyway expansion, through increased blood flow, could possibly cause shrinkage.

I understand what you’re saying but I mean literally longer flaccid than erect. As if, you measure your flaccid with a tape measure (accurately, NBP) and its say 14cm. And then you get an erection and edge for 5 minutes then measure that correctly with a ruler, and its also 14cm NBP. But then a month later you do the same thing and your flaccid is 14.5cm but your NBPEL is 14cm still, is this a possibility?

Anyway, thanks for dropping by my thread!

I have not heard of it before and certainly haven’t seen it before as I’m very much a grower.

I guess it would be theoretically possible, the girth expansion shrinks the ability for length?

Might be a positive PI for you that you are about to make some gains, sounds backwards to everyone else though!

No your flaccid can’t be as big as your erect size. I also have a slight upward curve the trick is in the measuring and doing it correctly.

I havent heard of it either, flaccid being longer than erect i mean. I used to be a mostly a grower, but now seem to be a shower. Still cant shake the ”small” feeling though…
Regardless, my flaccid seems longer but erect is the same as always. At this rate, flaccid will overtake! Haha, maybe not, who knows. I’m just curious about this whole situation.

This is actually my thoughts on the concept, however as of yet there seems little information available. Perhaps the reason for this is that it is rare, or it simply doesnt happen. Thats the point of this thread though ^^

I like the sound of that. I wouldnt say “it sounds backwards” at all though, it has been said many times that flaccid gains proceed erect gains. This is my situation as of now; my general hang is 1cm shorter than erect NBPEL and when given a little shake it extends to the length of my NBPEL. Is this really so uncommon?

Yes it can because mine is (lengthwise, as per this discussion) when I come out of the PF and also for a while after (given just a gentle tug), and im well aware how to measure, thanks.

The question continues!

I think it’s possible for flaccid size to exceed erect for one reason : if it’s long and thin when flaccid, it’ll be less long when erect. As it expands from engorgement, it’s going to increase more in width than length. I’m pretty sure there are “showers” out there who actually lose some length when they get hard for this reason.

I don’t think that’s true. Have never ever heard of a penis that gets shorter when it gets erect. “it’s going to increase more in width then length” - that doesn’t mean it shrinks in length.

It doesn’t mean it can’t either. I’ve noticed my length is a little shorter when I’m rock hard, due to increased girth. When you stretch your penis, it gets thinner and longer. If you stretch it then get hard, you’ll notice a pulling sensation, like your penis is trying to retract even though you’re getting an erection. If you clamp your erection, as it thickens, you lose length. It’s just how it works. You can’t tell me no showers out there lose even a millimeter of length when they get hard.

I can’t say for sure no showers loose length but I have never heard of one and I’ve been on thunders several years, so I doubt it.
