Slack and mgus, I admire your skills at troll detection :)
Truth is that I still have the same ruler now as when I started. That ruler drove me crazy the first 3 months of PE. I was doing a different routine and couldn’t gain anything. After a while I started paying attention to many posts that mentioned that their goal was a certain kind of tiredness. I paid attention to that in own unit and quickly realized that with simple stretching and an extra strong tug was the key for me. The tricky part was not pulling too hard. The amount of tension required to create the same tiredness increased with time. After a while I couldn’t pull hard enough to get the correct feel. I did manage to tear a ligament at one point and now have a small permenant lump on the top of my shaft. Fortunately, the wife found out at that point and put a stop to it.
She was right at the time, because sex was getting painful for her on occasion. That doesn’t happen anymore and so I have started up again. Deconditioning has made it so that I can get that same tired feeling that worked in the past. Unfortunately, right now I have to pull very hard. I doubt this routine will work for more than the next 3 months. What I don’t know is how that will translate into gains. If past results are an indication, then I should be able to get another 1/2 inch. That should be just about right for my wife.
Of course if this becomes a pattern then I will take another year off and then try it again. I think 9 inches would be the limit, judging on the size of my wife’s dildo. The most she’s been able to handle with that monster was 9 inches during a really steamy session.
I'm hung like Einstein and smart as a horse.
