I am a new member & poster, but a long-time reader, and almost ready to begin my PE journey in earnest. The reason I’m not is because I am recovering from an injury and also soon will be moving. The injury came either from extended wearing of a cock ring or from doing the mango stretch without a proper warm-up. Symptoms were: some pains when flaccid, some weird dull soreness & pain when erect. There was/is no and curvature, no serious pain, and I am getting good erections and frequent morning wood. This means that I’m not all that worried, I just don’t want to start until it’s totally healed.
(The current stat of things is some soreness when tired, and some sort of tightness-feeling in the shaft when I get erect. It’s tough to describe. It feels like I’m stretching tissues, sort of, but not quite like that I would post this in the injury forum if I could. If someone wants to point me to a relevant thread I’d appreciate it, but I’m not worried. Hot baths and rest seem to be helping things along nicely.)
This post is the beginning of my (hopefully successful) journey. I’ve broken it down into various sub-parts to make it clear and easy to read.
I’ve been reading Thunders and other website’s forums (PE Gym and MOS mostly) for a long time. I’ve made half-heart attempts at PE, never being consistent, and every now and then gotten ahead of myself and rushed into advanced exercises before I was ready.
Recently, I’ve decided to give it a good and earnest go. My desired transformation isn’t too drastic and if I’m careful, don’t really have much to lose. I am young, have the time, and if (when?) this works, I’ll be better off and happier for it. You all seem like a really close, dedicated community, and I’m glad to be a part of it.
My Size, Goals, & Motivations:
NBPEL: None. This doesn’t seem like a good metric to have a “goal” for, but I will track it.
I want my dick go be bigger for normal reasons: confidence, female reactions, and the sexual consequences of being notably above average. I know that my size is already good, and I’ve received compliments on my dick before, so my goals are almost entirely personal and self-serving. In the end, I want a bigger dick because I want a bigger dick. I don’t even want to be that much larger. From what I can see, my gains are feasible, but will be hard-won through at least a year of dedicated, patient effort if not longer.
I will post my routine and any other info people may want once I move & do genuinely begin the process. Until then I want to post the following question: What sort of documentation would the Thunders community most want? It seems to me that the burden of proof of PE falls on its practitioners, and the best way to get scientific attention to this is to have documented (pictures, numeric, etc.) evidence to present. As I do this, what do you think would make the most convincing way to document my potential successes? For known gainers out there, what’s something that you wish they’d done to document their journey that they didn’t do? My current plan is excel sheets with measurement data and time-stamped pictures. If there’s more you want, let me know.
I am planning on doing this for a least a year, starting with only manual exercises. I welcome any comments, criticisms, encouragement, and positive discussion. Hoping I gain, & can contribute information to the community that gives hope and help to fellow adventurers.
