Simon, the implication is that Bigger may have made shaft gains by doing lig work, and, in accordance with (his) LOT Hypothesis, erroneously attributed those gains to lig growth.
In short, “lig work” may not yield “lig gains”, but rather shaft gains. That’s the conclusion that my, and based on my and rem’s recollection of Bigger’s statements, Bigger’s data suggest.
Here is a relevant quote from Bib’s History Thread:
I also know that my head used to be well below my navel when laying down and erect. Possibly 2-3 inches below. Now it is a couple inches above my navel. If all gains were from lig stretch, I don’t think this would be possible. Unless penis inside the body was pulled “out” which allowed it to go “up” further when laying down. There may be some truth to that but I don’t think very much.
This quote suggests that all of Bib’s 4.5” of BPEL gains were attributable to shaft growth, not lig stretching. It is not clear to me that he recognizes this, however, since earlier in the same post he writes,
Where it exited my body was several inches away from the “base” or the prostate. Now it is what I consider normal. It exits much lower, only a couple inches from the prostate.
I know that I had good early gains from this ligament stretch; from everything being pulled down and out of my body. If I had to estimate, I would say around two inches.
Maybe I’m being overly critical or cynical, but I frankly find this strange. It sounds like he’s saying he gained 4-5” from tunica stretching (based on the change in position of his glans with respect to his navel), and also gained “around two inches” by lig stretching. It seems as if he thought his lig gains were IN ADDITION TO his tunica gains because he makes a point of saying how much lower his unit is (now only a couple of inches from his prostate, compared to several).
The suggestion here is that Bib gained closer to 6 or 7 inches: 4-5 inches of shaft growth plus 2 or so inches by lowering his exit point. Not to hijack this thread, but the numbers don’t add up and it seems his account cannot be relied upon.
Since Bib isn’t here to clear things up, perhaps it’s better if we put his history back on the shelf and focus on our own experiences, which are more verifiable.
