Tunica growth held back by tight lig(s)?
I’ve been at this faithfully for just over seven months. I’ve gained nearly three quarters of an inch in erect length and a quarter of an inch in girth. I’ve noticed that my gains have slowed significantly despite a 2 week decon in January. I’m still satisfied as I’m still seeing progress and feel I have more to gain. I’d like to solidify an inch after about a year of this, and I believe I’m on my way.
I’ve come to the place that I’m curious about my personal anatomy and the structures that are in place that cause/hinder growth. I almost wish I hadn’t even read some of the threads from LOT, tunica vs ligs, measuring discrepancies, and the potential for “illusions” in gains based on stretch/measuring/jelq angles and techniques.
Now to my points and questions.
Since I’ve started I’ve noticed how “tight” the top ligament is. I’m referring to the lig that runs down the top center of the shaft from base to tip. This area, or lig, has always felt that it was so tight that the underside, or inner penis, was loose. I could always tell when I had the hardest of erections because I’d feel that fullness/stretch in the inner-shaft.
When stretching, I’ve always felt the stretch in this top lig. Whether up, down, straight out, or even to the sides. My LOT has always been around 8,9 o’clock, and that hasn’t changed during my PE efforts, and neither has my erection angle or insertion point. Also, I have noticed that this lig has not let up in how tight it feels. In fact, I feel just as much of a stretch on this lig when straight out or straight up than I do when straight down or between the cheeks.
I want “real” gains. I don’t want a penis that’s going to be lowered into my perineum from stretching and it appears as though my cock is right by my asshole or something by the time I reach my goals. Unfortunately for me though, I can’t even attempt to stretch the “tunica” or inner penis without affecting the “top lig” (sorry for my lack of anatomically correct terms).
My question is, while what I’m doing appears to be working as far as the ruler goes, am I supposed to continue stretching at all angles until the ligs are loose enough that I will actual feel the tunica being stretched? Remember, I can’t even seem to affect the tunica because of how tight this top lig feels. I’m attempting now at the beginning of my stretch sessions to do some lig stretches, and then end the session with a few minute static a-stretch over a bar that sits horizontally on my lap. Even then, I still feel the top lig being stretched, and not the inner penis, or tunica. Again, I don’t want to be misled in thinking that this tightness I feel means that I’m only ever going to affect the ligs for as long as I continue to stretch in whatever angle. Will my potential for tunica growth always feel as though it’s being held back by this tight lig?
Maybe I’m wrong altogether. Maybe this illusive “lig” is actually the tunica stretching that I’m feeling and all is well. Please, someone guide me or educate me a little here.
