Hard Flaccid (Turtling):New individuals with their tissues still in the natural state (not yet broken down) will often next experience a smaller, harder (like a rubbery pipe) flaccid size as the body’s natural reaction to the exercises instead of visible enlargement. This is completely normal, but can often scare men that are new to PE. Some men will experience erection problems after noticing the initial hard flaccid state due to psychological reasons (not physical) in that they may feel they have “broken” themselves. To be sure, once the initial scare subsides within hours men will often find their erections to be stronger and in some cases visually larger. The hard flaccid state can last from days to weeks depending upon routine and the individual’s responses to the stimulus exerted. Also, the hard flaccid can return even when the tissues are conditioned if they are seriously over-trained or overloaded which also can appear as lower erection quality.
The Wall: The point where all the fast initial length gains stop and gains slow down. This is caused by the hidden or unstressed length being fully pulled free from the body and now the ligaments attaching the penis to the body begin to resist the pulling forces. The outer skin also begins to resist the expansion of the girth exercises and has been stretched to its natural limit by the growing shaft. Many men become discouraged at this stage, but they must understand if PE is continued the increases will continue, but at a slower but steady rate. This is where patience is learned and the point that separates those serious about gains with those only interested in fast and easy results. In general girth increases are unaffected at this stage since the skin will still stretch to handle the thickening shaft
Plateau Phase: The point at which the body adapts to the routines or techniques being used and length and girth gains will slow then stop, removing you from the gain zone state as healing occurs. Men will often either quit at this stage or continue with their once proven methods, not understanding that just like weight training the forces/pressure must now increase slightly to return to the gain zone and keep the gains coming. To break through the Plateau phase, sometimes changing methods completely, changing routines, or gently upping the force/pressure are absolutely necessary to re-enter/pass through the break-in phase again and get back into the gain zone. The last resort is to take an extended break (weeks/months), to allow the tissues to fully heal and in the process allow the tissues to atrophy, which in turn allows you to see gains with the techniques you were previously using. Use your knowledge of the gain zone texture feeling to gauge whether you are gaining (woven) or beginning to heal (smoother/ribs) and use that to know whether a plateau is being reached before it slows your gains and knocks you out of the Gain Zone.
Gain Zone: Want to know why most men give up on PE and proceed to exclaim that it doesn’t work? Why some men gain easily while others struggle? They never finish the initial break in period! There exists a break-in period fairly early on in the penis enlargement process that most men simply aren’t aware of. This break-in period typically lasts 4 to 6 weeks from the start of PE exercises for those completely new to PE and completes when the first permanent gains begin appearing. These first real gains are an indication that the walls of the shaft and to a lesser extent the head have finally broken down and can no longer withstand the pressure they previously could due to the unhealed micro-tears building upon themselves over time. At this time the breakdown of the tissue walls begins to become physically apparent and can actually be felt beneath the skin on the shaft, most commonly on the shaft sides while the penis is semi-erect. The normal smooth or ribbed texture of the shaft walls may now instead have a woven or bumpy texture feel to it.
Bone Pressed Flaccid Length (BPFL): Place the ruler on top of the penis with the edge of the ruler or tape pushed into the fat pad until it touches the hard pubic bone hidden under the pad. Hold the measuring device against the pubic bone, use your other hand to lift your completely flaccid penis until it touches the measuring device. Record the length on paper or in your personal PE journal.
Bone Pressed Stretched Flaccid Length (BPSFL): Place the ruler on top of the penis with the edge of the ruler or tape pushed into the fat pad until it touches the hard pubic bone hidden under the pad. Hold the measuring device against the pubic bone, use your other hand to grip the head of your flaccid penis and stretch it to its maximum length. Record the length on paper or in your personal PE journal. I find the BPSFL measurement to be the most accurate way to gauge length increases, as it doesn’t vary greatly versus erect measurements.
Mid-Shaft Flaccid Girth (MSFG): Circle the measuring tape around your flaccid penis in the middle of the shaft until the tape is wrapped snugly around the shaft. Record the girth on paper or in your personal PE journal.
Flaccid Base Girth (FBG): Circle the measuring tape around the base of your flaccid penis until the tape is wrapped snugly around the shaft. Record the girth on paper or in your personal PE journal.
Flaccid Head Girth (FHG): Circle the measuring tape around the head at the widest point of your flaccid penis until the tape is wrapped snugly around it. Record the girth on paper or in your personal PE journal.
Flaccid Head Length (FHL): Place the ruler on top of the fully flaccid head and measure from the base to the tip. Record the length on paper or in your personal PE journal.
Bone Pressed Erect Length (BPEL): Place the ruler on top of the penis with the edge of the ruler or tape pushed into the fat pad until it touches the hard pubic bone hidden under the pad. Hold the measuring device against the pubic bone, generate an erection using stimulation until you are fully erect. Record the length on paper or in your personal PE journal. If you have a curve, measure either with a tailors tape or at the longest point.
Mid-Shaft Erect Girth (MSEG): Circle the measuring tape around your erect penis in the middle of the shaft until the tape is wrapped snugly around the shaft.
Base Erect Girth (BEG): Circle the measuring tape around the base of your flaccid penis until the tape is wrapped snugly around the shaft
Erect Head Girth (EHG): Circle the measuring tape around the head at the widest point of your flaccid penis until the tape is wrapped snugly around it. The head is hard to measure, so if that fails use a piece of paper to wrap around the head, mark 2 points on it, then measure the distance between those 2 points.
Erect Head Length (EHL): Place the ruler on top of the head and measure from the base to the tip
Angion Methods: Series of routines and devices created by Janus Bifronz that are said to improve erection quality and increase size.
Clamping: Timed pressure hold. Manually or use of a device to create internal pressure either by blocking outflow of blood or applying external pressure or force. Follows the Diamond method of PE.
Hanger/hanging: Process of attaching a weight from the tip of the penis using a device or materials. Through continued use, lengthening is achieved.
Modified Jelq: Intermediate Timed pressure hold. Created to replace the ancient PE technique of Jelqing using science and medical research. Method uses internal pressure creation over time to expand the penis in girth. Follows the Diamond method of PE.
Jelqing: Historically the oldest and most famous PE method. It is also considered one of the most dangerous manual exercises and has been eclipsed by the new science based exercises known as TPH, or timed pressure holds
Fulcrum: Form of manual stretching that involves placing the shaft against an object to increase the strength of the force on the tunica.
Timed Pressure Hold (TPH): Girth expansion method by either manually or using a device to create and dwell on internal pressure within the penile chambers, gently forcing them to expand and over time enlarge. Follows the Diamond method of PE.
Fowfer: Tucking the penis under and between the buttocks. Over time the practice is said to cause lengthening.
Diamond Method: The formula for successful PE. Stress + Time = Growth. Based on medical studies into Priapism.
Extender: Typically a frame based device placed on the base of the penis and attached by various methods with the safest method currently being vacuum cup attachments. The tension springs in the device create the internal stress which translates into increased length over time.
