After our discussion (thank you for the input), and some study I think I have found an acceptable answer for why Edging works.
See our original discussion here: https://www.pegym.com/forums/beginne...ging-work.html
Why Edging Works
The Science Behind Edging
While reading another thread here at PEGym I saw a post on a completely different subject, and something clicked for me. I think I have a theory on the possible scientific principles that make Edging work. A PE routine creates microtears and creep in your penile tissues. Your weakened and stretched penile tissues are susceptible to deformation in this condition.
A prolonged erection caused by Edging results in additional blood flow in the penis. The gentle internal force of your blood acts like an internal pump assisting with deformation of your penile tissues by keeping the internal structures in an expanded state. The extra bloodflow may also further assist your growth by providing additional nutrients and oxygen which mildly accelerate the healing of your penile tissues in an expanded state. This results in a natural boost to both your overall PE gains (both length and girth).
The Same Principles as Known Medical Conditions (That Increase Penis Size)
WIth Edging the prolonged erection effectively acts like a self-induced Priapism, causing a lesser (and safer) form of Megalophallus. Both Priapism and Megalophallus are known medical conditions. I have included definitions for each condition to help others better understand the science behind this. I believe that at least to some extent, Edging operates on the same principles as a Priapism induced Megalophallus.
Clamping and girth work appear to often work on similar principles as well. However, the external force acts differently than the more natural internal forces of a Priapism induced Megalophallus (or Edging). I believe this is why Edging will not interfere at all with your length gains, while girth work is known to make length gains more difficult.
Some members of PEGym including Kingpole and Going411by7 have successfully used Edging to increase or enhance their PE gains. Going411by7: "My Edging sessions normally run for an hour or more--sometimes two hours"
I'm not sure the extent to which Edging helps PE growth has ever been scientifically studied. However, it appears to operate based on the same principles as existing medical conditions which are proven to increase penile size. I have included the definitions of Priapism and Megalophallus below.
Priapism is a persistent, usually painful, erection that lasts for more than four hours and occurs without sexual stimulation. The condition develops when blood in the penis becomes trapped and unable to drain. If the condition is not treated immediately, it can lead to scarring and permanent erectile dysfunction.
It can occur in all age groups, including newborns. However, it usually affects men between the ages of 5 to 10 years and 20 to 50 years.
There are two categories of Priapism: low-flow and high-flow.
Low flow: This type of Priapism is the result of blood being trapped in the erection chambers. It often occurs without a known cause in men who are otherwise healthy, but also affects men with sickle-cell disease, leukemia (cancer of the blood) or malaria.
High flow: High flow Priapism is more rare than low-flow and usually less painful. It is the result of a ruptured artery from an injury to the penis or the perineum (area between the scrotum and anus), which prevents blood in the penis from circulating normally.
-Sickle cell anemia
-Medications: Desyrel or Thorazine
-Trauma to the spinal cord or to the genital area
-Black widow spider bites
-Carbon monoxide poisoning
-Illicit drug use, such as marijuana and cocaine
-Ice packs: Ice applied to the penis and perineum may reduce swelling.
-Surgical ligation: if an artery has been ruptured, the doctor will ligate (tie off) the artery
-Intracavernous injection: drugs known as alpha-agonists are injected into the penis
-Surgical shunt: Also used for low-flow Priapism
-Aspiration: doctor inserts a needle and drains the blood from the penis

Who says penis enlargement isnt possible? Over the years, there have been several reports of Megalophallus --a rare penis enlargement disorder.
Megalophallus: A Mega Enlarged Penis
The word Megalophallus derives from mega meaning huge, and phallus meaning penis. The disorder is caused by aPriapism, which is a prolonged and uncontrollable erection that can last several hours to days.
Remarkably, several men who experience these long-lasting erections later experience an enlargement of the penis. In one case, a man who had several Priapisms during his adolescent years reached a penile circumference of nearly eight inches! (That's roughly the girth of a coke can.)
The Cause of Megalophallus
The exact cause of Megalophallus is unknown, but it is most common in men with sickle cell disease. There have been several theories regarding the disorder. A popular idea is that the prolonged entrapment of blood blocks new oxygen from entering the penis, which effectively causes hypertrophy (growth).
Another idea suggests that the prolonged erection stretches some of the tissues within the penis, along with exercising the penile smooth muscle. Nevertheless, before you consider a way of giving yourself a Priapism, know that a large percentage of the men who experience them become impotent.

Thank you blink! Your articles are really a delight to read! I love how you just mass so much information, anecdotal and medical, then combine them to fit your theories.Former: 6.30" BPEL, 4.50" MSEG

This makes me feel awesome after an hour of edging and no ejaculation."Repugnant is the creature who would squander the ability to lift an eye to heaven conscious of his fleeting time here"

I thought edging was a bit of a farce at first... but with this information in front me, I definitely see that it probably helps PE gains. I may try edging here & there too, but for now it's not part of my regular set routine.
So far, this explanation makes the most sense to me. That may change if/when I learn more. For now I feel like at least I have a decent theory to make sense of how or why Edging can work. If anyone has better explanations or would like to elaborate on points I missed... I am open to that. If someone thinks this is wrong, please don't be shy & let me know!

Well done blink.

Your explanations does make sense and the scientific data you digged up seem strong. That's a very good work and another reason for me to keep on edging.

Thanks for so much positive feedback guys.
I kept asking people how or why edging can work. No one ever gave me a straight answer.... and then I stumbled onto these 2x medical conditions that clarified things for me.
Basically, the concept of edging is to induce your own "Megalophallus". And really, Megalophallus is just a permanent deformation of your penis because you had an erection way too long.
At least for me, this confirms edging is a real form of PE. (I was skeptical before). As I said, I don't really use edging (I've tried it a few times, that's it). Mostly, I just wanted to understand it, that's all.

Really well done article Blink! This helps me better understand edgings' influence on size gains in addition to the endurance benefits it offers. Thanks for making that a bit more clear for all of us.

blink2000, superb article, I like that you back your wealth of information with sources! I do have a question regarding edging, however. If edging is as you say, a way to "induce your own Megalophallus", then does a prolonged edging session put one at risk for impotence?

Good job, blink. I've been a fan of Edging WAY before I found out about PE. Back then, I didn't even knew it had a name; all I knew was that I loved the feeling of it and the build-up of vitality I would carry with me after each and every session. Back then I was dating this chick with a great sex drive and I we were both noticing the constant improvement of my erections. I didn't have any problems to begin with, but we both noticed that it was getting meatier, more veiny and more muscular. I never cared to mention what I was doing because for me it was just my enjoying the great feeling of what I saw as "masturbating forever without cumming". However, I remember her just getting wonderfully obsessed with my tool and how she would even rave to her friends about it when she was a little tipsy. In my opinion, Edging is the most basic and most natural PE exercise and one that you can do without worries of possible injuries.
