Corpora Cavernosa Spongiosum physical properties?

Corpora Cavernosa Spongiosum physical properties?

Hi all

Does anyone have or know any info on the tissue that actually makes up these bodies? I’m interested to learn if the tissue is similar to fascia/ligament and will respond the same way when stretched. I realize it’s spongy…but beyond that I’m kinda in the dark.
Thanks!!

The spongiosum does not provide rigidity or structure to the erect penis. Its length does not effect your erect length. It comes along for the ride essentially. It is much more elastic.

-My dear boy, do you ask a fish how it swims? (No.) Or a bird how it flies? (No.) Of course not. They do it because they were born to do it...

I believe in surgery where the full circumference of the tunica is cut, the penis will immediately be extendable about 1” or more, which suggests the CS or CC is not a limitation in PE.

Really wow!

I had thought the whole point of jelqing and constrictor type exercises was to stretch/expand this tissue and that its size was limited by the tunica. It seems I was right about the tunica limiting the size of the CC/CS.

OK So….What you’re basically saying is that whatever size we eventually expand our tunica to the CS and CC will expand to fill it?

Quick followup- How does this apply to girth work?

Do things such as clamping and related exercises stretch the tunica outwards as opposed to lengthwise and is that why they are considered “girth” movements?

That sounds plausible to me. The tunica might be seen as the pods that the CS and CC fill. Similar to a condom, which holds a certain amount of volume under normal circumstances. It can become slack to allow for a flaccid size and can expand in dimensions when erect but only to a certain point. This limit is what determins our erect penis size. I am not sure whether it plays a part in flaccid size. Perhaps even then, the tunica restricts the CC and CS a little.

I have gotten around to thinking that the guys who have very large flaccid sizes but don’t grow much when erect, might have this trait because their CC and CS are large but their tunicas are mostly filled to capacity even when flaccid, leaving little room for growth when erect. Perhaps guys who have small flaccid sizes but grow a lot when erect have the oposite. Proportionally large tunicas and proportionally small CC and CS. Allowing for huge growth space when erect.

I must note that when I say proportionally large tunica, I mean that the CC and CS aren’t stretching the tunica to it’s limit, even though they fill the tunica completely. To my knowledge, the tunica is not a pod that is ever not completely filled by the CC and CS, even when flaccid. It just might not be being fully stretched, even though it is full at all times.

Your descriptions sound about right. Look here for more info:

Tunica

The tunica has been described as a “straw” and the CCs as “balloons.” Getting an erection is like inflating a balloon inside a straw. THe balloon expands until it reaches a limit imposed by the straw.

This analogy is about right, except that the tunica collapses when it is not pressurized. THere’s enough elastin in the tunica to make it retract when the pressure is reduced.

Guys with better flaccid hangs probably have less elastin in their tunicas than guys with acorn dicks. Anthropologists speculate that longer flaccid hang is an adaptation to warmer environments, where it is necessary for the body to dissipate heat rapidly. Acorn dicks (aka, “turtle dicks”) are an adaptation for cooler environments, where it is necessary to preserve body heat and avoid frostbite.


Enter your measurements in the PE Database.

I was refering specifically to the CS. When speaking of the CC we usually assume the surrouding connective tissue to be included. In other words, the CC is enclosed in tough tissue (tunica) while the CS is not.

Point taken Tube. I will adapt my posts to exclude CS from possible length increases. The CS can increase girth, however I believe.

Dreamaloud,

“Do things such as clamping and related exercises stretch the tunica outwards as opposed to lengthwise and is that why they are considered “girth” movements?”

Yes. This is part of what causes increases in girth Dream but CC and CS girth increases are also part of the equation I believe. One could have a wide tunica but if the CC and CS aren’t big enough to stretch the tunicas to their fullest capacity, the CC and CS will be the limiting factor in girth. It is my belief that girth exercises work by a combination of stretching the tunica wider and increasing the CC and CS chamber capacity width wise.

Girth work focuses on stretching the tunica, CC and CS chambers width wise. Length work (excluding ligaments) focuses on stretching the tunica and CC chambers length wise. The jelq increases the tunica, CC and CS in all dimensions, giving both length and girth. Well, this is the theory.

When I started PE I changed from a grower to a shower. My flaccid hang become maybe 2/3+ of erect size. I believe this to be due to a change in elastin ratios in the tunica. I have not done a hard routine for many months now, and I have noticed lately (especially last week when I was on a snow holiday) that I’m again slowly becoming a grower. Erect size has not diminished, so I believe the tissues are changing slowly back to their original proportions.

It seems that dimensions remain once exercise is ceased, but strength of the tissues will quickly diminish to baseline (a few months). For simplicity you could think of it as thick or thin tissues, but always about the same area.

This got moved, but its not my fault! I can’t start a new thread here yet……….

Thanks all for the info!!

Just to understand a little better Shiver. You still have all your erect length and girth gains but you are noticing that your tissues are returning to normal “toughness” or “pre PE pliability” ?? (if there is such a word)

Are you now doing something similar to a newbie routine again?

Yes, I’m at my greatest erect length ever and still gaining. My girth is a little less than greatest (didn’t cement it). I’m not saying that it always hangs less, but that it varies greatly depending on temperature, whereas before even in cold temperature it couldn’t shrink back as much. On a warm day it hangs as proud as ever. I wouldn’t have asked for it, but now I actually think I prefer it this way. It’s a very healthy looking unit.

I’m not exactly doing the newbie routine, but something similar or lighter in terms of intensity. (30mins IR and 3 mins stretching, no Girth work, every third day or so).
