Pauly891, you state that as if it was just that simple. It’s not. Men try for length and get girth; try for girth and get length; try for whatever they can get and get neither.
There is no such thing as a ‘pure girth’ or ‘pure length’ exercise or routine. Whatever the intent, there is always someone who had either gotten something different or no result at all.
I’m with Insane_Man: “Nobody knows for sure, but I think it’s best to take any increase in size you can get. PE isn’t like ordering a pizza.” If you’re not ready to accept whatever gains you might get, in whichever dimension, you probably ought not risk PE.
And this does come up from time to time. Members will say “I’m long enough! I don’t want more length; I just want girth!” or not want any more girth and just want length. No one can guarantee that gains in one dimension will not also mean gains in the other.
I think the theory that girth hampers length gains comes from the theory that it is harder to stretch a thick rubber band than a thin one. I don’t know that there is a lot more science than that behind it, although there are some statistics, as have already been cited. Correlation, though, does not necessitate causation.
I was 6” meg pre PE and after 5 months I’ve gained 1.4” in length & 0.125” in meg.
My big girth didn’t stop my ultra fast length gains whatsoever!
And that was all from jelqs & stretches so no magic formula there,just a simple and effective newbie routine applied with a bit of common sense & focused intensity.
