Jelqing exercises for men
The use of procedures or technologies to enhance the length of the penis is known as penile stretching. Stretching exercises, such as "jelqing," and use of traction devices or vacuum pumps are two popular techniques. There is minimal evidence that penis stretching procedures are effective. If people do produce outcomes, they are usually minor and transient. Jelqing is a type of penile stretching. It entails stroking your penis tissues and stretching your skin to create "micro-tears" that heal to look engorged. This is claimed to make your penis appear longer or thicker, but does it really work? Here's everything you need to know about it.
Jelqing exercises benefits
The purpose of jelqing is to increase the size of your penis. However, the majority of the "proof" for jelqing is anecdotal. There is no study on how effective or ineffective this approach is. Consistent jelqing, according to some more questionable claims out there, can help:
- When you're flaccid and erect, expand the girth of the penis
- When you're flaccid and erect, lengthen your penis to make your erections stay longer.
Side effects of jelqing
As long as you're not squeezing the penis too hard, too often, or too violently, jelqing is relatively harmless. When you're too vigorous, you risk tearing tissue or damaging the ligaments that link your penis and pelvis. In the worst-case scenario, this type of injury can have a long-term impact on the ability to get or stay hard. The following are some more possible adverse effects:
- Bruising on the penis
- Pain or soreness along the shaft
- Skin irritation from rubbing
- Scar tissue resulting from rubbing too hard
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
Precautions to follow
If you're still interested in giving it a shot, there are a few things you can do to lessen the risk of pain, discomfort, or injury to your penis:
- Make sure your penis is lubricated. To avoid creating too much contact or chafing between the hand and penis, use something to make the penis wet and slippery. If you're in a hurry, a light, unscented lotion, baby oil, or any number of food oils, such as olive oil or coconut oil, would suffice.
- Don't push yourself too far. Get around two-thirds of the way there instead. The idea of jelqing is to massage and flow blood around your body gently. Blood is already coursing through your veins if you're completely erect.
And here are some more hints for jelqing and other stretching exercises:
- If the workout is painful or uncomfortable, stop.
- While doing them, sit or lean against a table or a wall.
- To avoid injuring yourself, don't practise these exercises more than twice a day at most.
- If you plan to undertake such exercises for longer lengths of time each day, more regularly, or over a long period of time, consult your doctor.
How to do jelqing exercise
Let's get started on teaching you how to "jelq":
- Make an O with your index and middle fingers, similar to the "okay" hand signal.
- At the base of the penis, make an O-shaped gesture.
- Reduce the size of the O till light pressure is applied to your penile shaft.
- Move the finger and thumb slowly toward the tip of the penis until you reach it. If it's too painful, ease up on the pressure.
- At the tip, relax your hold. From base to tip, it should take roughly 3 to 5 seconds.
- This should be done once a day for approximately 20 minutes.
If you wish to change up your method, here are some suggestions:
- Experiment with different grips, such as the pincer. To do so, place the thumb underneath the shaft and your index finger on top of it, and gently squeeze with both facing down (as if pinching something).
- Without the lubricant, give it a shot. Lube is a wonderful safety precaution, but if it makes you extra hard or over-stimulates your nerve endings, you might want to forego it. Just make sure you don't irritate or chafe your skin.
When to discontinue this process?
If you suffer any of the following during a jelqing session, you should stop doing it:
- pain or discomfort
- bruising or discoloration
- red spots on your shaft
- numbness or tingling
- vein rupture
Here are some alternative solutions for making the penis longer, harder, or more erect, some of which have a little more science and effectiveness behind them:
- Pumping of the penis. This treatment involves placing the penis in a lengthy tube full of air, which is then sucked out by a pump mechanism. This causes blood to flow into your penis, which results in an erection. You place a clamp at the base of your penis once you're erect to keep it hard (for up to 30 minutes) and you have sex or masturbate.
- Device that provides traction. These are designed to gradually stretch out your penis. To use one, place your penis in one end of the device, attach that end to the penis and the other end to the pelvic area, and pull the gadget to stretch out your penis. Then you stretch it for 4 to 6 hours a day for a few months (not enough to cause pain or discomfort).
If you wish to try jelqing, keep in mind that your penis will not expand overnight. There isn't any evidence to back up the claims made by this practice, and if you're serious about expanding your penis size, there are far better solutions.
