I don't know the technical answer to the big question....BUT my wife does... she says, "Back it off, it's too hard."

Keeping the technical specs at bay..what do you guys think about penetration strength adequacy.


Guys correct me if I'm wrong but when I asked this last year nearly everyone agreed that most only partially pump for sex. That may have been growers who answered based on tip pain I know Lost Sheep had started to use fully pumped. At 18 months I now have no more tip pain when fully pumped but still only use about 60% to 70% simply because when it gets hard I stop pumping.
Bottom line my LGX which is the softest on the market gets more than hard enough at about 60% pumped. And in fact I could probably squeeze myself with an auto fill and still be good to go like when I had ED and pills began to let me down.

Furthermore, angling this in a different way than LS' pro-AMS twist, instead of saying that a Titan will be too hard, you can also say that a Titan achieve considerably high axial loading force tolerance even at moderate inflation levels. Meaning that it COULD be that to achieve the desirable axial loading force, you must pump your LGX much harder than your Titan, which will make it feel more unnatural...

As said, this is just speculations and will always come down to personal preference depending on how you use your implant.

Good luck.

I will admit to a bias. That bias is for myself only (and perhaps for other men of my dimensions, situation and conditions). The AMS LGX was, I think, the optimal choice for me, so my bias FOR ME was that model. My bias for a man of larger dimensions (which might require a greater moment of inertia that a taller pillar requires in building columns) or who needs residual stiffness in his uninflated implant would, of course be for the Coloplast.

I never intend to make blanket recommendations and if I seem to, I hope to amend any such posts and dispel any such insinuations.

Cant beat a Titan - its as hard as a baseball bat at 100% inflation.

Unless your cock had to breach either a chastity-belt or some serious dry-pussy, does it really matter? As stated by many, the hardness achievable with every implant is superior to pre-implant hardness and will get you balls deep into any well-lubricated pussy.

Optimum, ideal, perfect, potimal?
This is very subjective. Do you want to use it as a bath towel hanger? Do you want it for comfortable oral sex? Penetration of the smallest, tightest, dry hole possible? Do you want to want to walk around with a very obvious shower?
Can you deal with the pain of kinks and dog ears.
AMS or Colaplast both work great, both have pros and cons. Your dr and your anatomy should (dicktate) what is best for you.
Love mine, best decision I ever made. Comfortable when not needed, can adjust hardness to fit situation, up anytime for as long as wanted. No anxiety. Better than ever! Good luck to all and enjoy!

Thanks.
I guess after dealing with ED for few years and the anxiety it brings when thinking about sex..its very reassuring that an implant changes so much.

Yep. And SOME women like fucking a baseball bat. Others don't.

Sometimes I am a little dismayed that my lover has never indicated that my erection is too hard/stiff for her comfort. I will always wonder if she would like it better if it sere stiffer (though, when pumped past 90%, it is entirely unbendable in the shaft and at 100% nearly unable to change its angle).

In my youth, morning erections would often push my tunica (moderately painful or perhaps merely uncomfortable or just "tightly") into my glans and crus. My LGX, when fully inflated produces the identical sensation in the glans. I suspect the less-tight feeling in my crus is due to some cause I do not discern. The implant's erection also does not shut off urine flow as much as my youthful erections (100% vs about 50%) did.

If I remain fully inflated for 90 minutes, it is uncomfortable to the point of distraction. 90% is OK for both comfort and vaginal sex. 70% is best for fellatio, but that is suboptimal for vaginal sex.

So, optimum load rigidity (column strength or beam strength, either one) depends, for me/us on which sexual activity we are engaged in. Sometimes, she likes to just play with her "squishy toy" and sometimes she hungers to be vigorously penetrated to full depth.
