Ligaments Shmigaments: The way to stretch?!
It is pretty much conventional wisdom here that the ligaments are the best way to make gains. Where this idea came from, I don’t know. But everyone seems to pass it on as the truth. Even I instruct newbies to start stretching at lower angles.
Modesto recently made a recent comment on ligament stretching. In an essence, he said:
Another thing to note is that the amount one can hope to gain by moving the attachment point on the PS from Hi to Lo is actually not that great, since the PS is angled at about 45-degrees. For example, if you move your attachment point back 1” along the PS, the penis only extends out 0.3” further at 9 o’clock.
This is because the attachment point moves back 0.707” further inside the body. Therefore, the 1” of movement along the PS buys you only 1”-0.707” = 0.3-ish inches of additional horizontal extension.
However, one may measure more than this using the BPEL technique, since the ruler can be applied lower on the pubic bone and thus can be pushed in further. This is why I think all BPEL measurements should be made from the most forward point of the pubic bone.
Basically, if you don’t know this already, the idea of stretching the ligaments is to lower the exit point and bring the inner penis to “outer penis.”
However, the pubic bone is at a weird angle. It isn’t flat like one would assume. It is at a 45 degree angle, like this picture: IRcruraAP.JPG
Therefore, Modesto is suggesting that when you lower your exit point (by lig stretching), you aren’t getting all the gains you would think. First, since your exit point is lower you can push the ruler in further. If you don’t understand this, look at the picture above and imagine pushing in the ruler at the top of the pubic bone. Now imagine pushing it in at the bottom of the pubic bone. You will have a much bigger fat pad at the bottom then you will at the top. Thus, your gains of ligament stretching will be mostly BPEL, rather than NBPEL.
This all seems find and dandy. In fact, a few men claim they have made small BPEL gains, but not NBPEL gains. This might be ligament gains; who knows.
However, I put a little more thought into something I overlooked for so long. The ligament theory requires the exit point to be lowered. Substantially lower if you make big lig gains. Basically, your whole package should be much lower than it originally was if you made big ligament gains. How often does this happen?!? To be honest, I’m not sure. I haven’t noticed my exit point being lowered at all. I think that if ligament stretching caused big gains, then a lot of men would be discussing their lower exit points.
This brings me to my question, (this is especially important for you big gainers), have you noticed a lower exit point since you started PEing? If so, how much?
