One question, pudendum: I don’t understand why you’re saying girth gains through pumping are easier to comprehend (physiologically) if one pumps with a low level of erection. As the negative pressure expands the tunica, won’t it eventually reach the same level of low compliance as when one begins pumping with a full erection — and isn’t this the point beyond which further expansion is necessary for gains to occur? Obviously I’m misunderstanding something; any clarification would be appreciated :)
Doesn’t make much sense to me:
If a guy has a rock hard erection that means that his tunica is stretched a lot.
(Of course the stress can be increased by jelq - pump - clamp).
My confusion comes from my attempts to understand a confusing situation. That is, how, if at all, does an external and indirect force (negative pressure from pumping) induce enough circumferential (or longitudinal, if you believe) tension in a rock hard, very low compliant tunica. I’m having problem getting my hand around it (which in my mind is a good thing, as my wife says). I have a pretty good idea of living systems and it doesn’t make sense to me.
So let me turn the tables. I come to you after 8 months of PE with 1.25” increase in length (now 7.25” BPEL) and 1.1” increase in girth (6.1” EG). I’ve had plateaus and have taken decon breaks to push beyond. I’m curious about pumping. Never used it and wonder if I could expect any further gains with it. I have rock hard erections at peak; a trophy to my PE success. I not sure it will work. Tell me, do you think I should try it? Should I expect gains? Do the potential gains out way the risks? If you think I should try it, tell me why and how do you think these changes occur in light of our understanding of tension-induced changes in connective tissue.
Clampers don’t get off the hook either. I’ve never clamped. I understand the effect of direct intense internal pressure-generated tension on the tunica. However, I’ve heard all the potential problems of putting a hose clamp on the only “little guy” that I own. I’m concerned that putting this clamp on my rock hard base could potentially fracture my tunica (this may be a unjustified concern; but I still have it). Do the potential gains out way the risks? Do you think I can make gains any greater than with jelqs, squeezes or slinkies that I use now? Or will I just increase collagen fiber diameter faster and plateau quicker? If you think I should try it, tell me why and how do you think these changes occur in light of our understanding of tension-induced changes in connective tissue.
I’ve tried to understand but can’t. What can you tell me.
