The Permanence of PE Gains
What I am about to say may be controversial, but I fell compelled to say it nonetheless. I have been actively PEing for nearly 3 years. During that time I have been blessed with success - going from 5”nbp x 4.5”eg to 8”nbp x 6”eg. These gains have been the result of many, many hours of PE. Because of my work arrangement (I own my own business), I have been able to PE at work. For more than 15 months, I was hanging for an average of 5 hours a day, 6 days a week. I have since dropped into a maintenance mode where I hang 1.5 to 2 hours a day.
I will qualify the statements that I am about to make in the event that I am the exception to the rule rather than consistent with the rule. Since I am older (turning 50 years old this year), my penile anatomy may be slightly different than that of younger members. I would like to hear from other members to learn if this is, indeed, the case.
Over the past year, I have observed a noticable change in my erect length that is directly proportionate to the amount of PE that I do (or don’t do). After taking a lengthy vacation during the holidays, I got back into maintenance mode after about 3 weeks off. On a lark, I got an erection and took a measurement. It showed 7.25”nbp. I didn’t freak out because I have been suspecting for a while now that my best length is always attained during active PE. I then proceeded to stretch for about 10 minutes after applying moist heat. I got another erection and measured again. This time it showed 7.75”nbp. I then proceeded to hang for about an hour and a half (5 - 20 min. sets). I got another erection and measured again. Guess what? It showed my normal 8”nbp. That was a change of three quarters of an inch. I have taken several one to two week PE breaks since then and have seen my erect length decrease a half inch each time and then return to 8” again after returning to my normal PE regimen.
Later I took 5 days off. I measured and saw only a quarter of an inch erection loss. In talking with veteran PE’ers, I have heard similar stories. I remember a post from a long time pumper who said that he lost more than 2 inches of erect length after quitting pumping for a couple of years. Since he was fairly young, I began to suspect that PE gains will diminish without continued PE regardless of age. Medical experts have confirmed that the penis shrinks as men get older. I think that in older men, it may be due to a decrease in tissue elasticity. However, I believe that younger men are also affected by this to some extent.
I strongly feel that some percentage of PE gains involve stretched tissues. I believe that penile tissues will contract without continued stretching. How much contraction may, indeed be based upon age, individual physiology, etc. My gut tells me that this contraction is directly related to the corpus cavernosa rather than the suspensory ligaments. In any case, I would me most interested in hearing the thoughts of other forum members on this subject.
