What is jelqing and can it really enlarge your penis?

How do men stroke their own egos? Let us count the ways.

 

Some guys like driving around expensive cars they can’t afford. Others like buying the latest basketball shoes even if they don’t actually play sports. Of course, there are also those gym buffs who bench press a little too much to feel like the biggest guys around (Bro, don’t forget that leg days are important too).

Let’s admit it, we have a bigger need for ego displays than women do. Yeah, it’s the female species who get the bad rap for being emotional, sensitive, and high-maintenance. But really, it’s us men who have a huge need to feel special. Feeling like top dogs is important for our self esteem and self-worth.

 

As you probably know, a man’s dick plays a big role in all this. After all, it is the center of man’s existence. In the locker room or in the boardroom, it’s all about who has a bigger dick. It’s the root of a man’s power. Admit it, you’re probably thinking about your dick more often than you should.

 

Penises, unfortunately, are one of the biggest roots of man’s insecurities too.

 

There are anxieties about how a penis looks, smells, and even tastes! Is the color just right? How about the pubic hair? And what about foreskin? Then, there are performance-based anxieties, too. How long should an erection last? What about premature ejaculation?

Men often find themselves wondering if they are enough.

 

And then of course, there’s the biggest issue of all: The issue of penis size. Even if size doesn’t really matter to most women, half of men want to have bigger dicks. Blame it on the porn industry which creates an unbelievable standard for most men.

 

A little science. According to a study, an average length of an erect penis is 14.14cm and the average vagina is only 7 to 10 cm deep. So clearly, a bigger dick is not about reaching all the right spots (G-spot is typically only 5-7cm inside). Again, penis size is all about ego.

 

Look around you, penis enlargement is a thriving industry. It does a great job of monetising men’s insecurities. Some men willingly go under the knife to get a bigger dick and boost their confidence. There are also creams and soaps which supposedly help enlarge the penis.

Enter Jelqing.

 

It remains unclear if it’s something that started out in Ancient Middle East or something born in the internet-era, but the goal of the entire exercise is clear: It supposedly helps increase the penis size with the help of a few exercises.

What is Jelqing?

 

Jelqing is a series of pinching and stretching exercises that can help increase the length and girth of your manhood. Yeah, it sounds like masturbation but since it’s more of an “exercise” for your penis, so you have to approach it in a more disciplined way. There are men who claim to have increased their penis size by up to an inch or two in penis length and an in inch in penis girth.

Why do people do it? It’s an easy, affordable, and seemingly harmless way to improve penises. Most guides just emphasize the importance of following a schedule to get results.

 

There are different theories on what supposedly causes the “enlargement” of the penis. One theory says that the pulling and squeezing causes an increase in the blood pressure and circulation. Another says that jelqing causes microtears in the penis and as the tears start to heal, the penis becomes bigger.

 

According to Menshealth.com:

 

“There is one legitimate medical philosophy that appears to support the concept of organic penile enhancement. It’s called “tissue remodeling,” and it revolves around the reorganization of existing tissue. Dr. Paul Turek, a leader in men’s reproductive and sexual healthcare and research, suggests we look to dental braces to demonstrate the power of remodeling. “The physics of time and pressure can lead to change in almost anything on this good earth,” he tells MensHealth.com, with emphasis on that “time” part: it would take months of pressure applied for hours per day for this principle to actually work.”

How exactly is it done?

 

There are a lot of theories about what is the most effective way to perform jelqing. Just like when you are working out, you need to commit to doing it on a regular basis if you want to see results. Set aside at least 20 minutes a day, everyday. It’s supposed to be a daily habit!

 

Now, here’s where the differences come in. There are different theories on how it should be done the right way. If you are committed to doing this (We’re not saying you should), you might as well try out the different techniques and figure out which one works best for you.

 

One way of jelqing is to do an “okay sign” with your hand and stroke your penis in an upward motion and wait for your penis to be engorged with blood. Yeah, it sounds like masturbation but you should think of it as something more of a penis massage. According to a theory, the exercise is best performed when the penis is at 50-75% erection.  Doing it at 100% erection level can potentially hurt you but those who are are more experienced can try the exercise at higher erection levels.

 

One way to make jelqing more effective is to do warm up exercises first. Try taking a nice shower before you jump into action . You can put moist heating pad or a moist warm sock around your penis to help warm it up. You just have to be careful not to hurt yourself! You can also use an oil-based lube for smoother technique.

 

Some say that warming down after a jelqing session can help prevent injuries and other problems too. Just wrap it in warm wash cloth and relax for 5-10 minutes

 

If you notice side effects such as weaker erections, then it’s a sign that you are overdoing it. You might be interested in taking days off to give your penis time to rest. You might also want to tone down the intensity of your jelqing sessions if you are starting to feel pain or discomfort.

 

Which brings us to our next point….

Is it safe?

 

While there are more aggressive and more dangerous ways to help increase the size of your penis, jelqing is definitely not as safe as it seems. What may seem harmless can actually deform and desensitize you manhood. There could also be tearing, scar formation, and unbelievable pain. You may also develop rashes and discoloration. If you pull too hard, you might even get serious permanent damage.

 

So, is it even worth it to try it out?

Does it actually work?

 

Now, here’s the big question. Does it actually work? Will all the squeezing and pulling actually get you the bigger dick you’ve always wanted.

 

Even if some members of the internet community are saying that jelqing has helped them get the penis size they want, most members of the medical community say that it does not work – even if you follow the techniques, even if you do it religiously everyday. So there is no medical proof that it works and it might cause damage to your sex life.

 

It doesn’t sound like it’s worth taking the risk, does it?

What are alternative ways to help increase penis size?

 

Before you try anything that promise penis growth, perhaps it’s important to take a pause and try to think about why you think you need it anyway. Do you really need bigger penis to satisfy your partner? Are you simply feeling insecure because of the unbelievable standards that come with being a man?

 

Studies show that most men who want their penis enlarged are actually average-sized but with big insecurities. Make sure to address those things too. Do you have a partner who makes you feel small? Have you always felt inadequate in other areas of life? Perhaps you need to change your mindset about yourself and work on boosting your confidence through other means first.

 

If you still want to find things that will help you increase your penis, there are safer things that you can choose. We strongly suggest that you take this route instead.

Unsurprisingly, habits that help improve overall health such as exercise, proper diet, shedding off belly fat, and quitting cigarette smoking can help with improving blood flow in the penis area. This means that with the right habits, you can easily boost your penis size when erect.

 

One thing you can do is trying male kegels exercise that will help you get better and stronger. Plus, it supposedly helps make erections better, too. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?

 

Oh and better stay away from penis enlargement surgeries! These things cost money and they’re simply not worth the risk!
