Really good stuff. Nice research.
>Hobby’s note: I’ve read several places that the penile ligs have characteristics similar to spinal column ligs. For PE purposes, we may be dealing with that “different pattern of the elastic modulus.” Anyone have info about how these ligs differ<
I have read that some of the collagenous tissues of the penis have slightly more elastin than say, the tissues of joints, etc.. For many guys (growers), they have a higher amount of elastin in the shaft which leads to a greater degree or percentage of retraction.
The picture I have developed of the mechanics of this additional elastin is that it gives tremendously, to where it almost never a limiting factor in gains. IOW, it gives until the stress is almost wholely on the tougher collagenous fibers. But, it does deform to an extent, becoming like an overstretched rubber band. Larger, longer fibers over time.
I get the sense that for the rest of the collagenous structures of the penis, there is not a dimes worth of difference from the other collagenous structures of the body.
