Smooth muscle actually does grow, and PE causes it to grow more. Priapisms and puberty are both examples wherein an unprecedented amount of blood is forced into the penis, causing hypertrophy within the smooth muscle.
Protein is a really overrated issue. Most adult men can satisfy their daily requirements with about 50-60 grams of protein. The WHO principle is, 0.83 grams per kilogram of bodyweight. Eating an excess will just cause increased defecation of protein, once a nitrogen balance has been achieved the body doesn't take in any more.
There are other issues with eating excess protein as well, for example the body may try to break down the amino acids into simple sugars and use them as fuel (since a high-protein diet necessarily pushes your carbohydrate intake down), a byproduct of which is the internal creation of ammonia.
Furthermore, protein can act as an appetite-suppressant, since meeting your protein requirements causes the body to feel more satiated. If you get enough protein before consuming ample carbohydrates (and, in the very unlikely instance that you're consuming almost pure protein via concentrated powder, fats), you can cheat yourself out of a balanced nutrient intake by filling yourself up before you have a chance to consume everything you need.
It's also important to note that total protein intake is a lot more important than percentages. On a 2000 calorie diet, some 10-12% of your calories should come from protein to meet your requirements. But if you're consuming 3000 calories a day, you only need to eat a 7-8% protein diet. This could be accomplished with oranges and peaches; protein powders, meat, dairy, and egg products are all unnecessary.(current)

Thank you faithandhope. I was wondering about the BCAAs. I did find some info under a supplements thread (can't remember now where it was exactly) that recommends the use of one specific amino acid. Again I can't remember which one, but if the use of any amino acid supplement is recommended, my fear that this would make gains more difficult is pretty much put to rest. I bought a whey protein blend with a wide amino acid profile and have been taking it regularly. I'll mention this along the way if I have significant gains to report.
