“Tightness” refers to tension and has little to do with geometry in this context. For a ligament to be “tight,” it must be pulled. But why should someone’s LOT change based on tension? LOT is a matter of geometry. Ligs can have different lengths, but they cannot have different tightnesses, unless you’re pulling on them with different forces. The simulator does not “pass off” lig tightness for length. Lig tightness is simply not a relevant concept.
I think you might be misconstruing lig-tightness. Lig tightness is relevant and a key factor in determininlig potential.
I look at the ligs as ABC gum. That is, Already Been Chewed bubble gum.
For an example, let’s say I am chewing gum. To spice it up, we will make the gum Big Red – my favorite :) . Now I chew my delicious piece of Big Red gum, and take it out of my mouth. These are our example ligaments.
Now, I take the ABC gum and tightly pack it into a ball. This is analogous to tight ligaments.
After that, I take the gum and stretch it out. Depending on the type of gum, it can stretch 12 inches or more. I have Big Red, which is good for flavor, not elasticity, so it only goes about 6 inches. This is analogous to loose ligaments.
How is this relevant?
1) The looser the ligs become, the more inner penis turns into outer penis, i.e, more growth.
2) The looser the ligaments become, the closer they are to their max-point. That is, the closer they are to reaching their limit, i.e. they can’t be stretched anymore. My chewed-up piece of Big Red breaks. Or in the case of the ligs, the fibers break and/or have reached their limit.
Perhaps you could re-read my post above. The basic idea is that, if the IP is so small that the ligs have to reach back to intersect the junction of the IP with the OP, then something is anatomically screwed up.
I think you are saying:
If the ligs have to go down and around the pubic bone to grab a hold of the penis, then something is wrong. I agree, if this were the case then something is not right.
Going with this, you are suggesting that if the inner penis where to become smaller, then the ligaments would have to go backwards to reach for the junction of OP and IP. Through my eyes, I can’t understand this thinking. The ligaments reach from the pubic bone to the inner penis/outer penis. This is certain. In some instances the ligaments reach to the outer penis.
For an example, here is a link of the pic I attached earlier. It is much easier to see than the attachment. This pic is here on thunders somewhere, but I have been unable to re-find it.
By looking at the pic, you will see that the ligaments don’t reach back – at high LOT or low.
That sounds right to me. I think the model shows this. But I think you need to change the attachment point on the PS to see it. I think that, when guys stretch their ligs, they’re really lowering their attachment points more than they’re lengthening the fibers of the ligament. I doubt the ligs really grow as the model shows. This is a weakness of the model, which the next revision will attempt to address (if I ever get there).
What are you proposing happens when the attachment point is lowered?
As far as my light can see, we are stretching the ligaments down, thus lowering the attachment point. In addition to this, we might actually be breaking some of the ligament fibers when lowering the attachment point.
Besides these two explanations, what else could happen? I don’t think we can lower the attachment point without stretching the ligaments.
I think I see what you’re saying. It’s not that the fat pad grows (obviously). It’s that the ligament is stretched.
[Additional note added later: I just noticed you agreed with this in a few posts down. I am going to leave it up the explanation, and hopefully it will help shed some light for other guys.]
I think pictures will help with the explanation. I will attempt to break out the photoshop later this week. My photoshop abilities are sub par, so be afraid – very afraid : ).
Before I bring out the pictures, I will try to explain it. To understand the inner penis’ role in LOT theory, I am going to break it down into two parts:
Inner penis 1 – the inner penis that starts at the end of the outer penis. In other words, it starts at the exit point — where the outer penis left off. Inner penis 1 ends at the bottom of the pubic bone.
Inner penis 2 – the inner penis that starts where inner penis 1 left off. This is the remaining of the inner penis and it ends at the anchor points.
So basically, if we were looking at the penis from the glans to the end of the inner penis it would go: glans, outer penis, inner penis 1 (IP1), and then inner penis 2 (IP2).
Now, when we stretch and growth occurs, inner penis 1 becomes outer penis. This doesn’t happen because the inner penis grows. It happens because the attachment point is lowered and/or the ligaments are stretched. This results in a lower exit point. Additionally, when this happens the LOT is lowered and so is IP1’s angle. Your model agrees with this. LOT theory agrees with this.
