Q1. Are the corpora cavernosa and corpus spongiosum just hollow areas or spongy tissue? Im guessing spongy tissue..if so, I pressume the object of the Jelq is to enlarge inividual cells within these areas ? So is it the case you can only enlarge current cells or can u build completely new ones.
Big Al: The corpora and corpus does indeed consist of spongy tissue. The idea is to forcibly stretch the cell compartments a bit above what they are accustomed to during an erection through expansion of the tunica. The plasticity of the penis lends itself well to this type of stress, and eventually, larger cell volumes are achieved.
Q2. Where exactly are these ligaments I keep hearing about? Are they inside the penis?
Big Al: The suspensory ligament attaches the penis to the pubis. It's the ligament that's severed during many enlargement surgeries (Bihari procedure).
Q3. How does stretching ligaments make the penis longer? To my newbie logical mind the only tissue to enlarge to mean your penis got longer would be the corpora cavernosa and corpus spongiosum as they are the ones inside the penis which fill to equal errection size.
Big Al: The ligaments allow more of the "inner penis" to fall out. Enlargement surgeries sever this ligament to allow this to happen. Those of us that prefer the non-invasive route prefer to stretch this ligament to retain control of the penis- not to mention to avoid the costs and many nasty side effects of surgery.
Q4. What is a tunica? And where is it located? What is its role in PE?
Big Al: The penile tunica (tunica albuginea) is a tough fibrous fascia that encases the penis and is the chief limiter of girth (and to some extent, length). There are other fascial structures such as Buck's (Deep) fascia, as well as trabeculae that also provide support to the structures of the penis, but for general purposes, the term "tunica" is used when referring to the fascial structures that you're hoping to expand by doing PE. Think of the tunica as a balloon. Repeated hyperexpansion of the tunica eventually stretches it, which allows the structures inside to expand.
Q5. I was sitting stretching today (Fowfer) and thought..what happens too all the veins and arteries within the penis? Do they simply stretch and rebuild too?
They stretch and grow along with the rest of the penis. The vessels and other structures are designed to expand and contract with erections and flaccidity. As long as you don't abuse your exercises, you don't have to worry about damaging these blood vessels. You will likely cause petechiae (little pinpoint-sized bruises) when you're doing PE. This is a result of superficial capillary damage, but is not serious and is quick to heal.
Q6. With all this regrowth being such a factor in PE, how important is nutrition. As u can see from my user name I am a keen gym enthusiast! Nutrition in bodybuilding is at least as important as all the workouts.
Big Al: If you're looking for maximum penis size, I would suggest adopting a diet and exercise regimen that promotes low body fat levels. Your penis will appear larger (and will measure larger non-bone pressed) if you're lean. If you're thinking about the protein requirement of PE, it's likely to be negligible. Just make sure that you have enough protein to meet your needs plus a little more if you're exercising hard.
