Time to Get Scientific
So, I’m a scientist by profession: I do research related to human health and medicine. Given my background, I prefer to judge things based on systematic evidence; unfortunately, there has never been a proper study of PE. Now, I’m fairly new to PE (been at it for a couple of months) and, based on the results I’ve seen, I’m convinced that PE works; the question I have is what factors affect growth and how can we maximize our potential. I’ve been thinking that it would be great to conduct a study among the people here at Thunder’s and would like to get some feedback. First, let me say, I want to do this for the benefit of this community and am not doing this to publish — in other words, I’d be doing this in a personal, not professional, capacity, and the results would only be posted here at Thunder’s. Having said that, my idea is to setup an online survey to collect information from participants (I’m thinking that we could use survey monkey or something similar — I haven’t looked into this yet) and, once we had the data, I could do a proper data analysis, write up the results, and post them here at Thunder’s.
Here are the questions that I’ve thought of including in the survey so far:
-Amount of time doing PE (how many months/years have you been doing PE?)
-Average hours per day (how long is your average routine?)
-Average days per week (how many times a week do you do your routine?)
-What is your routine? (Would collect details here)
*NOTE: I would want to configure survey to allow people to show changes in their routine over time
-When you started PE, were you a shower or grower?
-Are you currently a shower or a grower?
-Do you feel that you have pronounced dorsal thickening (often described as a “steel cable” running along the top of your penis that can be felt when stretched)?
-How old were you when you started doing PE?
-What is your LOT?
My first question to all of you is, does this sound like something that people are interested in? Second, does anyone have any other ideas for questions we should ask in this survey? Third, what hypotheses would you want to see tested? I’ve been thinking about a number of possible hypotheses (phrased here as questions): does age affect gains? What is the average rate of gain? Do gains differ between showers and growers? Does LOT affect growth? What exercises work best for showers vs growers? What exercises work best for people of a given LOT? What exercises work best for people with pronounced dorsal thickening?
I would love to hear people’s input on this idea. Also, being fairly new, I can’t post in the main forum yet — could this post be moved there? Thanks
