I still believe what we are talking about is the septum and not some hardened version of the dorsal vein or nerve. I’ve never heard of any type of vein that couldn’t be stretched significantly larger than it’s natural length.
Although nerve fibres can be fairly ridged and even feel like a cord (I injured myself doing weights and after much attempt at explanation the physio said I had stretched a nerve fibre, I could feel it really clearly under my arm, like bouncy guitar string) I still don’t believe they’d be able to take anywhere near as much force and/or punishment as this mysterious cord in the penis is clearly capable of withstanding.
It’s quite difficult to describe the cord to someone who does not have it, but it’s already been done very well here, so I will avoid repetition. For me, though, if I feel from the top I can clearly feel the cord and what feels like it branching to form the chambers of the CC on each side. If I feel from the bottom (I have to press my fingers in with reasonable force) I can feel like an upside-down valley, as if the CC’s chambers are meeting one another more completely at a more dorsal/upper portion of the penis, and the edges of the ‘valley’ I can feel extending outwards to form their respective chambers.
I don’t know how comprehensible my explanation is. In this picture http://www.anatomyatlases.org/Micro…late14277.shtml it shows what I’m trying to describe, if you push your fingers into the corpus spongiosum hard enough.
I remember reading somewhere on this site or possibly elsewhere that some people have one layer and some people have two layers of tunica (for each chamber) and in the rarest case that some people even have 3 layers of tunica. Since presentation of this cord symptom seems to be relatively rare I wonder if it’s possible there’s a connection there and that in some way 3 layers of tunica, when coming together at the septum can produce an exceptionally tough fibre, which we are describing.
I’m out of my depth here but I wonder whether people with the cord, therefore, find it harder to gain girth (assuming more layers of tunica = more resistance to girth work (purely speculation and I can imagine possible cases where the inverse would be true)). Can anyone report on this?
As for my new routine it’s basically involved buying a very powerful IR lamp (too powerful, probably) and hanging relatively light weight for about 10 minutes with the lamp pointed directly at the dorsal “cord” as I massage the septum/dorsal cord along it’s length. Once it’s as hot as is comfortable and I feel the heat has completely penetrated the cord I remove the IR lamp and and hang normally while swinging the weight around, until my penis has returned to it’s normal temperature, which can take as long as 15 minutes. Every second set, during the cooling phase of the exercise, I stick a drumstick between my legs and do a A-stretch so that my dick is bent at the dorsal side (hard to explain) and the full force is on the septum. This is quite uncomfortable so I watch TV or something in a weird crouched position. Again, I allow my penis to cool completely before re-heating. So basically long sets of low weight with timed heating.
I also do jelqing between sets when possible and clamped bends for length. With clamping, again, I heat before clamping, then clamp and remove the heat, so that maximum engorgement occurs while the penis is still hot, and is still extremely engorged while it cools. I’ve found the effect is, due to the shortness of my septum, it feels like it’s doing the bend all on it’s own, and I almost don’t need to apply any additional force as the cord is already being strained so much. I think this has contributed significantly to my gains.
