>Both before PE and now, I had/have a large amount of elastin fibers in my penis, otherwise known as a ‘grower’.<
1.) How did you determine this?? Just because you are a grower means you have lots of elastin fibers?
>But with 5-7 inches of flaccid hang, I think I am a grower and a shower.<
1a.) One can be both?
>No. The ligs do not have very much elastin. The shaft generally has the most elastin which provides the contraction of the penis. The amount varies widely between races.<
2.)Expound on this please… (the races part)
>When you speak of elasticity, I think of the connective tissue made up of elastin, and referred to as elastin. OK? <
3.)Connective tissue meaning ligs, tunica, or what?
>The following is probably your situation: First, you had shorter tough collagenous fiber as related to elastin fibers. IOW, the elastin fibers were not taking much stress when stretched. So then, you hang, and all the load is taken by the tougher fibers which elongate. As the tougher fibers become longer, the elastin fibers come into play more and more making your penis appear to have more spring. <
I would agree with this…
>I assume you are a shower?<
As long as we have the same definiton of a grower and a shower…tell me yours?
For the most part no, definitely a grower…My penis tends to retract alot, especially when cold. BUT, when i hot wrap or step out of the shower, I have my best nice long flaccids, especially since hanging. I can already tell my flaccids are a little longer, but they still retract…Hoping to become a shower/grower or just a shower.
4.) Curious, why did you think this?
4a.)What does being a grower or shower say about one’s fiber make up and quality,
4b.) and how can we apply this to benefit the hanging experience?
5.) It seems from porn, etc. alot of black men are showers, eh? Sort of what you were saying with the race thing earlier?
>Ok. IMO, the strength gained over time; the ability to resist fatigue and soreness and injury; plateauing in gains, is both a good and bad thing. Good in that I could actually see my penis becoming healthier with the work. More vitality. Better circulation. Everything better. However, with this increased strength, more stress was required to cause tissue failure to cause further gains.
An analogy would be starting a workout program with a max bench of 100 lbs. Then working for six months and maxing at 200 lbs. You are in better condition, but future gains become tougher.<
6.) Sabe. You attribute hanging to some vitality and circulation increases? It seems hanging might cause the opposite, for obvious reasons, but that’s good to know…….
>Well, the actual elasticity, the difference between ‘stretched flaccid lenght’ and ‘simple flaccid length’ should not increase tremendously. This would be a factor of the degree of elasticity of the elastin fibers. The tougher collagenous fibers should determine the amount of total erect gains, and stretched flaccid gains. This is if the elastin fibers are not a limiting factor, and I would not think they are for the vast majority of guys.<
7.) You mean the difference from gains would be proportional to what it is now, right? So (for Example only) if I was 2.5 flaccid and 5 stretched I could expect to be 5 flaccid and 10 stretched??
7a)If this true, one could predict their Erect measurements, and Flaccid measurements from their increases in FSL measurements right?
There’s that famous quote again: “Listen to your body.”
Okay, got ya.
>OK, I’m tired now.<
Rest….more will come….hehe
