Back after 17 year lay off
I was an active member of this forum from 2003 - 2004, during which time I did serious PE. Life events forced me off the forum, and out of PE, shortly thereafter. It’s a long story but, suffice to say, by the early teens I was in a position to PE again, but just didn’t feel the urge due to a) having achieved a size which most would deem reasonably large; and b) the fact that, when I quit PE in 2004, it was after a frustrating plateau of little gains despite very intense workouts (after some good initial gains in the beginning).
I’ll fill in the details of what I did during my first PE run if anyone is interested. At the time all I wanted was more size, and did a lot of extreme squeezing, clamping, a little bending, and even some pumping. I can still remember taking the bus to my local Auto Zone and promptly asking the man at the counter where I could find a Mityvac - despite clearly not owning a car at the time, LOL. (I always wonder if the guys who work there know that not everyone who buys a Mityvac uses it on their car.)
Looking back, I believe that I did too much, too soon, which may have contributed to rapidly plateauing. I did reach the coveted 8 x 6 mark - mainly because I started at 7 x 5.7.
Now, 17 years later, I am significantly older and am focusing on PE for penile health and EQ. I can see I have a lot of reading to catch up on. It seems there’s been some shifts in thinking since last I PE-d, which I need to get current on. Back when I first joined, a Bib was the premier hanger, and guys like Wadzilla and Avocet were active posters. We had a bunch of mad, self-taught PE scientists, making it up as they went along, trying to figure out how and why this stuff works when the medical community was calling it a myth. In that respect, perhaps not very much has changed!
I look forward to reconnecting with anyone who remembers me, and meeting all of you new folks. Although a “veteran” I don’t believe I possess much in the way of novel ideas that haven’t been expressed by others. I can at least give you the good news that my gains did, in fact, turn out to be permanent, for those of you concerned that you will lose everything after you stop.
That’s all for now. Talk again.
