Periodic high vacuum pressure pulses during a low pressure session
I experimented with a low vacuum pressure (5 inHg) routine with two 2 minute pulses at 20 inHg.
The hypothesis of this test was that perhaps a small amount of time at a high pressure wouldn’t trigger the contraction response and would add to the cumulative expansion of a 20 minute pump session.
The result was that it did trigger a contraction response. While it did produce an increase in post pump size, it caused a small reduction in the erect length the next 2 days, so far. I’ve been stable at 9” and over erect length for a while, but it is now measuring about half way between 8.75” and 9” when erect. I expect this prolonged contraction response is similar to the response I get from high force extending and hanging and will not persist for over a week, which is why I’m not changing my signature just yet.
A setback is something I’d like to avoid, but I think this will be useful in clarifying my ideas about what triggers the contraction response. There is a gap in fully testing out the main hypothesis I’ve been running with to decide what to test, which is that chronically triggering a contraction response is what causes a plateau, but that’s something I’d rather not test out myself.
I think after such a long period of experimenting with so many different routines it might be time to go back to what has worked best in the past. I’m still not confident I’ve reached my girth goal for beginning the girth to length conversion experiment, it could be another week or two until my girth measurements are consistently at or above 6.25” and I’m playing with the idea of going to 6.5” mseg since, if the hypothesis is correct, it would give a more pronounced increase to the length gain rate and leave less room for me second guess whether the results supported or disproved the hypothesis. If the girth to length conversion test goes well, I’ll probably buy a smaller diameter tube to speed up the process of reaching my length goal.
