Neither, to make another example, stretch marks on the penis are likely to be linked with gains in length; the penis will never grow so fast to stretch the skin, this is just ridicolous; if there are stretch marks, those are caused by the friction of the hanger on the skin. I could go ahead with such examples, but I think those willing to understand got the hint, those unwilling will deny any reasonable argument or proof.

I am late to this thread but I am curious about your opinion in regards to the stretch marks. I hang and I absolutely have stretch marks on my penis. Some of them are at the base of my penis which the hanger never gets close to. I am unsure how the hanger could create stretch marks via friction if it doesn’t even get close to that area. Do you have any idea how the friction of the hanger is causing stretch marks if it doesn’t ever touch that skin?

BHCentral, stretch marks are not caused by friction, the are caused by stretching. As the skin permanently elongates - rather, if it elongates too quickly - it will develop stretch marks. Like with a pregnant woman’s belly. Vitamin E applied to the skin will help with this. It might reduce the stretch marks that are already there, but it will work even better in preventing any new stretch marks from developing.

Sorry about how late this response is, I haven’t looked at this thread since I’ve been back here.

I know Roots. I was asking Marinera a question. I can see by looking at my penis that what he said was not accurate but I was hoping he could explain it to me.

Please check out his post that I was responding to and see if you agree with his statement.

The friction of the hanger will stretch the skin under the hanger (even where the hanger is not attached). That’s why you don’t have stretch marks above the hanger, ony under the hanger. So it isn’t the speed of growth of the penis causing the stretch marks, but the way the skin is clamped and then stretched.

Look that pumpers stretch the skin even more than hangers, probably, but I never heard of them having stretch marks: because the skin is free to move, it isn’t clamped. That’s why I say ‘the friction’, I thought it was intuitive enough. Perhaps ‘compressive force’ would have been a better choice, dunno.

Haha sorry! I actually read the quote from Marinera, I just thought yours was just a question about stretch marks. I’m losing it at my old age. ;)

I definitely don’t agree that pumpers stretch the skin more. My hanger is positioned about 2” behind the head and when I hang it slides down to about 1/2” behind the coronal ridge. So that means the skin stretches 1.5” in ADDITION to the actual stretch you get from hanging. That is a ton of skin stretch. My skin gets incredibly tight above the hanger when I hang.

So in conclusion, I think the skin can indeed stretch more than the penis itself.

Also, looked at pregnant women and bodybuilders, they get mass stretch marks with no friction whatsoever, just fast skin expansion/elongation.

If you get 1” expansion in girth and 1” in length, the total surface increase is higher when pumping than when hanging, no need to make calcs I think.

Correct, but my hanger pulls the skin about 1.5” before it comes to rest on the “shoulders” behind my glans, and THEN I stretch more due to the weight. The skin gets tugged an extreme amount and gets really, really tight. But I don’t have any stretch marks, go figure. :)

By the way, maybe this will help understanding what I’m saying
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fricti…ent_of_friction

I saw an extreme pumping pic of Titleist one time, I know what you mean, his unit looked like a cartoon anteater snout after his pumping session. It was insane.

I’m just not sure this is all there is too it. Stretch is a product of tissue tension (strain) and the all around expansion in a pump doesn’t create as much tension in the skin. If this were the case, some extreme pumpers would have stretch marks running circumferentially around their cocks. If they were at all susceptible to stretch marks that is. Hangers, however, often have stretch marks running lengthwise and more towards the base where the skin is tightest during a hang - not where the hanger sits.

I read a lot of that Wikipedia page Marinera, what am I looking for there? In relationship to friction causing stretch marks, that is.

I have two types of stretch marks. I have horizontal and vertical. The vertical (running base to glans direction) are very small. Maybe centimeter or smaller. These are only one or two every now and then. They happen under part of the hanger nearest to the base of my penis. I actually believe these are what I would consider friction (for lack of a better word) stretch marks. I believe due to poor tightening the hanger slips just slightly while pulling the skin forward..

Now my horizontal stretch marks are in areas that never make direct contact with the hanger and almost encircle the penis. Over time these appear to fade but these are not in an area that is ever touched by the hanger. They are also under the area that is touched by the hanger. On me they are not forward of the hanger that I can see. However, logically I think I can understand why they aren’t ahead of the hanger.

I only hang BTC and SD. There is no traction force applied ahead of the hanger.

My issue was you stated “those are caused by the friction of the hanger on the skin.” I am having skin stretch on area that is not clamped. Now I am actually not saying it is by growth of penis. The hanger has the ability to stretch skin and I am positive I could regrow a facsimile of my foreskin. I believe some of my skin stretching and growth was actually caused by poor hanger technique.

However, even as I say that I also had a couple months of explosive growth that coincided with the skin stretch and stretch marks. I am saying I truly don’t know.

Now my response was very selective only about the skin stretching even though I disagreed with the entire post that you had written. marinera - More Hanging Sets or Adding Extender

At that time I had written it I had just had about 6 weeks of gains. My first gains ever and it just didn’t match with anything you posted. I only hang BTC and sometime SD. I predominantly feel the tension and soreness in my ligs. I definitely had signs of stretchmarks that where not in areas attached to the hanger.

I am pretty positive the gains are not in my imagination. I am also in my 40’s. I am probably borderline morbidly obese and it has been years since I have had a regular schedule of physical training.
I do get the occasional back soreness from hanging but for me it is my partly due to the style of hanging that I do. I lie on my bed and I actually let my butt free hang over with my feet on a chair. If I had my butt closer to the bed or even supported on the bed I am sure it would reduce some of the pressure on my back. However, I like to swing the weights when I hang and I have found this method to work the best. Mind you this is not what Bib recommends. His method of hanging placed to much pressure on my coccyx and I found it very uncomfortable. I am sure many would look at my method and find it equally uncomfortable.

Right now I do about 2 hours a day of hanging time and I plan on getting up to 3 hours a day. I don’t consider myself a hermit. Since I do hang like this I could see other people with either obsessive personalities or a work at home job doing this for many hours out of the day. When I hang just to hang it is tedious. It is the last thing I want to do. But if I hang as a secondary thing to reading, studying, learning new job skills the time flies by.

Please understand my previous post and this post is not meant as an attack on you. It is just the more that I hang it doesn’t match with what you are saying. Also the more that I hang and seeing what I have gained from hanging I find it reasonable that others could have gained much more than me.

I truly believe that the limitations on hanging are more lifestyle, personality limitations instead of the physics of how hanging works. Yes I find it hard to believe that people hang 30 hours a week but that doesn’t mean it is impossible. 2 to 3 hours in the day and then 1 to 2 hours at night would get you up to 35 hours a week. At 30 hours a week someone would have done more hanging in 2 months that I have in 10 months. If they where to hang for 1 year like that I could easily imagine multiple inch gains in a year. Yes it sounds crazy but like many things it is amazing what is possible when someone is willing to dedicate the time.

As I say this I feel that we are talking about a very select few people that not only have the time but also the personality to put in that kind of effort. I probably have the time to put in 30 hours a week. I don’t have the personality. Just being honest with myself.

BHCentral, you’ve made some pretty impressive gains, don’t sell yourself short! Whatever you’re doing, it’s working. Keep up the good work.

I think I clock about 14-15 hours a week of straight hang time, excluding breaks and other exercises. This comes out to about 3 hours spent doing PE everyday. 35 would be very hard to achieve though, I think you would need to be a hermit for that. ;)

Also, I know, at least for me, it’s working. I just passed the big 9” mark a few weeks back and I’m gonna post pictures at 9.5” as I promised this in my progress report thread. Maybe this will give a small measure of credibility to the hanging community. I wish I had some before pictures though, I did not take any, but I was 7.75” using the exact same measuring technique I use now, measuring technique is one area I have been very consistent with.

Thanks rootsnatty.
What kills me is I know I could have done a lot more. Half the time I am hanging at a reduced weight because my skin can’t handle the weight since I took time off. I have taken to many breaks and it isn’t just that I lost hanging time it is the time it takes to get back up to a productive weight that is wasted.

I have flaccid pictures in my log but I really hate taking pictures, especially erect pictures. I did take a ton of erect pictures a week or 2 ago but I haven’t posted them yet.

I feel very insecure about my erect size and I know this is an anonymous forum but I still have my hangups. For me it just isn’t the erect size but the way the fat pad hides the size and I have a very difficult time taking pictures with one hand and angling the penis with the other hand, not counting lighting and blurriness and who knows what else.

I will probably post them in the the next week or two. Regretfully I don’t have erect pictures from when I started but I don’t plan on stopping any time soon so that is okay. I can compare my flaccid pictures from when I started but that isn’t as trustworthy as erect pictures in my opinion.

Yep, bone pressed erect is the most accurate that’s why we do them and the medical community does that too when they wanna measure a penis. I think on an individual basis, bone pressed full stretched is a good one too. Not great for a study where you are comparing men to one another, but good in tracking one single individual’s progress. I do all my measurements erect. And now I got my girlfriend (photography is her hobby) who tells me she will be more than happy to help me with my progress pictures. :) Because you are right, they are tough to do on your own!

This is a personal question, but are you interested in reducing your body fat?

Absolutely want to reduce body fat and get in better shape. My issue is a combination of will power and perseverance. I have difficulty seeing things through.
