Thanks! I’ve used it for a while now (elsewhere). Funny how perfect it clicked with this place once I discovered it.
Have you tried any other methods of PE? I’m not taking anything away from extending because gains are gains. And frankly, depending on lifestyle extending just works better in some ways. I’m just curious if there is something in particular about extending that makes you feel that way. Because I feel that way about PE in general, and hanging definitely gives me a more satisfying feeling of progress.
I haven’t tried anything else except for manual stretches. For one, I’m only interested in length gains now. The only time I’ll work on girth (as in jelq) is when I want to add more scaffolding for the added length that I want.
The other reason I’ve kept it to the extender is because I’m married and my wife doesn’t know about PE. So I figure this is probably the most useful in terms of stealthiness. If I lived alone, I’d probably complement my extending routine with hanging. So instead, I use the extender until everything feels nice and tender, and then move on to manual stretches. Really feels like a good pairing.
I’ve noticed recently that a marker of a good manual stretch is when I feel the skin around my groin stretch in new ways when I’m pulling in a certain direction. I assume it’s telling me that my insides have gained some and now brand new tension is being placed on the skin that was previously inaccessible.
Last thing about extenders is it doesn’t have to be slow if it’s accompanied by manual stretches, consistency, and mindfulness.
There's principalities in the whole thing.
