How Fast do we Gain - TP Data Analysis
I have seen a few posts lately asking variations on the following question:
“I’ve gained X amount in the last month/week/year, Is that a good?”
Basically asking the question of how fast should we reasonably expect to gain length or girth using PE.
So to answer this question I went to the TP database to see what can be gleaned about average rates of growth for Thunders Place members. This is the same dataset I’ve used for the other statistical posts I’ve made. It consists of about 2300 data points out of the more than 13000 data points in the TP database. I used only data where the user entered at least two measurements and I threw out any obviously bogus data.
I must say here that we have to avoid reading to much into this analysis. PE gains generally come much more quickly when you first start PE, while gains can be hard to find after the first year or two. What I offer here is just a look at average rates of growth of an average TP member. Some of the user data points average gains over a few months while other user’s data may include years of modest or no gain.
Given that caveat; here is what I found:
Average rate of growth in BPEL: 0.10 inches per month
Average rate of growth in EG: 0.045 inches per month
So this data suggests that one tenth of an inch length increase per month of PE is a reasonable rate of growth to expect… probably even faster in the beginning and then tapering off over time.
I think most guys would be thrilled with one-tenth of an inch gain per month, I know I would be.
2008 Starting size: 5.25 BPEL, 5.5 girth, vol. 12.7
2009 Plateau reached 6.5 BPEL, 6.0 girth, vol. 18.6
2012 Resumed PE 6.7 BPEL, 6.0 girth, Vol=19.2 Goal: it's all about the volume: Vol. > 20
