The Science Behind PE

For further detail on this process, read our original post on the topic

The structural framework of the penis is the limiting factor for gains in length and girth. The three main limiting components are the collagen framework in the penis shaft, the collagen of the ligaments attaching the penis to the pubic bone, and the striated muscular base in the perineum (ie the pelvic floor).
See the diagrams below - note the pelvic floor muscles aren't illustrated in the first diagram, but are shown in great detail in the second. Understanding the exact and precise musculature isn't required to gain well - we are including it for those who are interested.

 The Tunica Albuginea is 90% collagen, 10% elastin - this is the limiting factor when we want to increase penis length (blood vessels, nerves etc are far easier to stretch and come along for the ride as we lengthen the tunica)
The below diagrams illustrate the structure of collagen fibres in the penis - from the molecular level upwards
The primary enlargement comes from a force exerted that is slightly greater than the force found in the collagen bonds or linkages. This is called critical traction.
Most specialist penis enlargement surgeons put this figure at around 8-10lbs, for someone starting out - this is the critical traction of the suspensory ligament of ~90% of men - the first part of the penis to typically enlarge in a routine.
 Over time, as the micro damage and repair cycle continues, with critical traction of each slightly enlarged collagen fibril increasing, new "weakest links" in the connection between the pubic bone and the force applied (through hanging in this example) are found.
Such force is supplied by the LG Hanger or Malehanger at a critical weight which will begin to work on the weaker collagen fibrils.
The fibrils are the smaller components of the larger collagen fiber making up the shaft and the ligaments. When enough force is provided, the molecular bonds are broken in a small but significant portion of the fibrils.
Different parts of the penis will have different critical tractions (more/less collagen fibres, more/less other stuff such as elastin, denser/less dense collagen)
This is also the reason most experts recommend, for those with 2"+ length ambitions, to work on length first - gaining girth will increase the critical traction required to make gains as the cross section of the penis becomes larger (more material to stretch). This means gains will be harder and require more traction and time. Working on length first does not impede gaining girth afterwards.
As you train, even if girth doesn't increase much, this will slowly increase your critical traction over time, requiring ever more weight for each fraction of an inch gained as the collagen becomes longer and thicker.

 (Ignore the MPA figures included)
After this occurs collagen remodeling will take place healing the tissue in a more extended state - MAKING IT PERMANENTLY LARGER + LONGER
Stretching of the ligament collagen fibres allows more of the "inner penis" to come out - a key region for post-nubie gains.
The traction force also strengthens and enlarges the striated muscle in the perineum (base of penis) strengthening the pelvic floor.
Note the above diagram explains how beginner "newbie" gains occur - you are simply removing the crimps from the collagen fibres, so they straighten out.
For advanced gains you must create micro tears, which then heal longer and stronger than before.
Why Use an ADS?
The penis a naturally contracting organ, so it makes intuitive sense to stretch it periodically throughout the day to maintain the newly separated fibrils in an elongated state so that healing takes place in such a state. One method of stretching is achieved by using an ADS or all day stretcher device. An example of ADS light stretch can be found on the LGHanger website.This ADS device consist of a knee strap, bungee cord and a penis attachment area consisting of a silicone sleeve and plug to maintain vacuum. This can be worn for multi-hour durations comfortably, and with experience some wear this while they sleep at night.

Other Examples. Let us look at other examples of the benefits of stretching. I received this information from a student who emailed me as follows: "thinking about supplements and other hanging adjuncts, I was browsing the LG Hanger website, and I noticed they have a new product, the all day stretcher.”

"This sounds like a potentially useful addition to the LG hanger, not necessarily to provide a strong stretch, but rather just a mild gentle one, if nothing more than to maintain the penis at its most elongated state, rather than allowing it to return to normal flaccid length."

"If one were to draw a comparison to stretching tendons/muscles, I had an acquaintance who was a fairly dedicated Karate and Judo practitioner. In order to be able to perform a split/straddle for high kicks as well as some sweeping throws, he would go to sleep in the evenings with his backside against the wall and legs spread apart, and fall asleep. He eventually would awake with his legs flat against the mattress in a full split. It seems that light intensity but prolonged stretch yielded an excellent result compared to the violent and rapid stretching sometimes seen in martial arts films. "

The student pose these questions: "Could it be useful at night during sleep and would it be safe to do so? Do you think this could be a useful addition to the hanging protocol, and if so what would be the ideal point in the progression of weight to implement the all day/and or nocturnal hanging?" (I agreed with his questions, and suggested 4 to 5 pounds weight.)

"Also, in reflecting on all day stretching, it seems like the LG could be used for that purpose by simply applying the hangar but without creating any vacuum, or a vacuum not more than 5 mm Hg?" (This is also true, as the LG Hanger could be attached to light bungee cord such as the ADS and provide a slightly different grip to the penis, and would probably enlarge the glans as well).

Inversion Body Stretch.

Another personal example would be the use of the inversion device. Such device allows one to invert at an angle or vertically depending on your experience, allowing a counter stretch to the forces of gravity which pushes down on the individual. Over the years an individual can lose a number of inches of height, this type of exercise can counterbalance it. I have been using an inversion device for decades and it has been extremely helpful in decompressing the spine when used just in a vertical position, or angles, and with additional exercises. I recommended it to a number of people who have back problems, the results were very encouraging in that over time their problems diminished noticeably.

In conclusion stretching is definitely very useful and is a consideration for aspects of penile growth and health in general.
