I don’t have much time to read and respond right now, but I’d like to add a couple of points:
First, don’t get discouraged. I actually got sucked into this thread because guys with low LOTs were complaining that they had little potential for gains. My goal was simply to decouple the measure of LOT from people’s idea of how much they can gain. It think that should be encouraging.
Second, the fact that lig gains may be illusory is no reason not to enjoy them. If you personally like how lig stretching changes the appearance of your dick and its size, then keep doing it. I’m not trying to invalidate lig stretching.
Third, stretching the ligs can also cause your penis to grow, which does translate to real gains. The ligs are attached to the shaft. Pulling on the ligs puts your shaft in traction, which might make it grow. So the “lig gains” may in fact translate to tunica gains, which are very real.
Fourth, the simulator is a cool toy but it’s not perfect. You can’t really stretch your ligs to 80 mm in real life. If you could, then, sure, you could see an apparent gain when the penis was pulled straight out. In reality, the ligament can only be slightly stretched, so the gains from simply straightening out the shaft are quite small. Also, regardless of what you do with your ligs, the length of the shaft (or rather the position of the glans with the shaft extended) doesn’t change for angles above about 10 o’clock. Try it and see. That’s normal intercourse angle.
Fifth, remember that some gains are real. I mention the illusory nature of “lig gains” so that people can understand what’s going on. But if you hang SD or BTC and gain 2 inches, you’ve gained some real size. Those aren’t all “lig gains,” no matter what people call them. They are shaft gains. And I’m not saying that SD or BTC won’t give you massive gains. It all depends on the person and what exercises and stresses his body responds to.
