Recently, there has been a lot of focus on using various devices to lengthen one’s penis. Because of this trend, the typical techniques using just your own hands, known as ‘jelqing’ or ‘milking,’ have largely fallen out of favor in the public eye.

However, there are still many men who have reported that this all natural method has given them good results. Jelqing technique is composed of 3 different phases with a specific routine, and each phase is crucial. You will master the art of jelqing in no time with this guide, trust me.

Although Jelqing is simple and effective technique, it can be potentially dangerous to your health if done improperly. There are many reports made by men that they have permanently injured their penis. It’s your penis, consult doctor to avoid injuries. 

WARMING UP PHASE

EXTRA TIPS

 You will need privacy, access to hot water, and towel
Do warm up before any PE exercise except Kegels
There are various ways to warm up (some better than others)
The warm washcloth method is not the best option because it doesn’t distribute the heat long enough
Pay attention not to burn your skin with hot water
Not warming up properly may result in injury & lack of gains

The first phase plays a crucial role in the effectiveness of jelqing. It is called a warm-up phase. You have to do this if you want to make your phallus larger and avoid injury at the same time.

There are various ways you can heat up soft tissue inside your penis. The most popular methods use a wet warm washcloth, a moist heating pad, a microwaved rice sock, or an infrared lamp.

Although not being the best option, I prefer using a hot, wet washcloth. If you want to try it as well, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Take a warm shower.
  2. Grab a small towel or a washcloth.
  3. Soak it in a hot water to make it all wet.
  4. Pay attention not to burn your skin.
  5. Achieve 30-50% erection.
  6. Wrap your penis in a warm towel for about 15 minutes.
  7. Pour warm water over your towel if you feel that your towel lost too much heat.
  8. Keep this in mind – do not burn your skin.

Only after you fulfill all of the above instructions you are properly warmed up and can continue to the process of milking.

Gradually increase the number of repetitions per session
Stop as soon as you start to feel any discomfort
Jelqing your glans may result in loss of its sensitivity
Jelqing with a flaccid cock will achieve no gains
Jelqing with a 100% erection may often result in soft tissue & nerve damage (loss of sensation, disfigurement, scarring, tearing a blood vessel, etc.)

Improves: Girth & length
Difficulty level: Beginner
Risk of injury: Low
Time required: 1+ Minutes

Finally, it is time to start “milking” your buddy. This time, all you will need is a lubricant and your own hands. Keep in mind that you need to have 1/2 – 3/4 erection to see nice gains and avoid injuries.

Once you get that semi-erection, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Take your time for a proper warm-up phase (instructions above).
  2. Lubricate both your hands and your shaft well (use oil based lube).
  3. Achieve desired erection level.
  4. With your right hand grasp the base of your cock between your thumb and index finger with an “OK/Okay Grip“.
  5. Place your grip as close to your pubic bone as possible to avoid uneven gains (baseball bat shape).
  6. Tighten your grip so you will painlessly trap the blood in your shaft.
  7. Slowly slide your hand (it should take you at least 2-3 seconds/ideally 5 seconds) up to the glans and apply enough pressure with your grip to force blood up your penis.
  8. Stop sliding your hand just before it reaches your glans (at this point you have finished one jelq).
  9. While still holding your one hand right before your glans, use the other hand to “Okay Grip” the base of your cock.
  10. Again place your grip as close to your pubic bone as possible.
  11. Release your first hand that is gripping right before your glans.
  12. Return to the step #6 and continue until you reach the desired number of repetitions.
  13. Do not forget to take your time to go through a cool down phase.

As a beginner, consider a lower number of repetitions per single session and then increase this amount gradually.

The “Dry Jelq” is almost the same as the basic “Wet Jelq” above. Again, you will need to achieve 50-75% erection to experience any size gains without harming yourself.

However, there are small differences you need to pay attention to:

  1. Take your time for a proper warm-up phase (instructions above).
  2. Achieve desired erection level.
  3. With your right hand make a loose “OK/Okay Grip” and place it in the middle of your shaft.
  4. Pull the skin on your shaft back by moving your loose “OK/Okay Grip” in the direction of your body.
  5. Place your grip as close to your pubic bone as possible to avoid uneven gains (baseball bat shape).
  6. Tighten your grip so you will painlessly trap the blood in your shaft.
  7. Slowly slide your hand (it should take you at least 2-3 seconds/ideally 5 seconds) up to the glans and apply enough pressure with your grip to force blood up your penis.
  8. Stop sliding your hand just before it reaches your glans (at this point you have finished one jelq).
  9. Release your right hand and return to the step #3, but this time use your left hand.
  10. Continue until you reach the desired number of repetitions.
  11. Do not forget to take your time to go through a cool down phase.

As a beginner, consider a lower number of repetitions per single session and then increase this amount gradually.

The V-Jelq technique is a variation that I have discovered on a great website called AHCAFR. It is focusing mostly on the girth of your shaft.

You can increase the thickness of your penis by following these steps:

  1. Make a V-sign with your middle and ring fingers (some guys prefer index and middle fingers) on your right hand.
  2. Now turn your hand to show an upside-down V (it reminds a letter A) while your palm should be facing you (see the image above).
  3. The next step is to curl your fingers like you would hold a grocery bag on them.
  4. Then grasp your penis between your curled middle and ring fingers (or index and middle fingers) while your palm should be still facing you.
  5. The head and the underside of your penis needs to be resting on your palm and there should be no gap in the V section formed by your fingers.
  6. Try to get your grip as close to your pubic bone as possible.
  7. Then press these two fingers together to trap and force the blood in your penis.
  8. Once pressed together, perform an upward-pulling jelqing motion.
  9. Stop this motion right before your glans.
  10. Repeat steps 4-9 for the second repetition.
  11. For the third repetition, repeat steps 4-9 but this time, your jelqing (pulling) motion should go in the direction of the hand you are using (if you are using the right hand then to the right).
  12. Now, switch your hands and repeat steps 1-11.
  13. Continue as necessary while always maintaining general safety tips to avoid any injury.

If you try to imagine this technique, your two fingers will form a letter V, hence the name V-Jelq. You can add these variations to your workout routine to make your jelqing more complex.

#4. LATERAL (SIDE) JELQ

The Lateral Jelq (also known as side jelq) is the perfect option for guys suffering from a penis curvature or Peyronie´s disease. Based on the information I have discovered on excellent website called PEGym.com, this technique is simple, and easy to do.

The main principle is to jelq in the opposite direction of your curvature. All you have to do is to follow these steps:

  1. Start doing a regular jelq with the hand that is same as the direction of your curvature.
  2. If your penis is slightly bent to the right, start with your right hand and vice versa.
  3. In the mid jelq, place your second hand on the base of your penis for a support later (palm resting on your lower belly).
  4. As you place your second hand, your jelqing motion should continue to the side (in the opposite direction of your curvature).
  5. If your curvature is to the right and you started with the right hand, then your jelq should go in the opposite direction (to the left) and vice versa.
  6. When you are reaching your glans, you need to release your okay grip and start pressing with your palm against your penis while finishing the bending motion of your side jelq.
  7. A sigle jelq should last for about five seconds. Then you can switch your hands.

Just keep in mind that bending highly erect penis can easily lead to a very severe traumatic injury of your penile chambers (a condition called broken penis) that require immediate surgical procedure.

That is why you should never jelq with a fully erect penis and you should already have some experience in jelqing before trying this technique.

As you can see, the Side Jelq utilizes a simple jelqing motion in the opposite direction to your curvature. This way, you will work out and expand more the part of your shaft that is shorter and causing your curvature.

After you are done exercising you need to take a couple of minutes for massage and warm down. This will let your penis tissue heal and your body rebuild and create new cells.

This will also help you prevent further injuries or trauma to your soft tissue. All you need to do is to follow these steps:

  1. Right after completing your workout, grab a moisturizing lotion.
  2. Apply it to your penis and massage it into your skin with deep circular strokes with your thumb and index finger.
  3. Do this for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Then grab the small towel/washcloth you used in your warm-up phase.
  5. Soak it in hot water to make it completely wet.
  6. Pay attention to not to burn your skin.
  7. Wrap it around your penis.
  8. Relax and keep it covered for 5-10 minutes.

If you are still not sure about this exercise, I highly recommend looking for more guidance from professional programs such as the Penis Advantage or the Penis Enlargement Bible.

This whole technique is based on a process of cell division that is initiated when your tissue is exposed to intense pressure and tension for an extended period of time. Scientists have proved that this is possible.

SIGNS OF A SUCCESSFUL JELQING SESSION

Doing a jelqing routine correctly may be a tough job for an inexperienced guy. Luckily, there are some signs of a successful session.

Just look for these the next time you are doing your jelqs:

  • Your whole penis should look slightly larger and redder
  • Your glans should be slightly harder at the end of each jelq from all the blood you forced into it
  • Your glans should also look a little bit darker at the end of your session
  • The hole you pee from should be looking more swollen
  • The part of the skin on your shaft that is closer to your pelvis should look slightly lighter

Just keep in mind that all these are signs of your blood being forced from the bottom of your shaft up to your glans.

Quick notes:

  • Never skip the warm-up and  cool-down phase.
  • Stop if you feel any pain or significant discomfort.
  • Better to rest more than you should and not less than you should to avoid any harm.
  • Jelq to all sides; up in the direction of your belly button, straight in front of you, to your right side, to your left side, and in the direction of your knees.

Continue increasing the number of repetitions to 300-400 on your third week, and to 500 on your fourth week. Always make sure you have a rest day every two to three days for a recovery of your penis and that your single jelqing motion takes 3 (ideally 5) seconds.

Once you manage to do 500 jelqs a day, you can either change for more advanced routines (like this one on PeGym) or increase the number of repetitions according to your needs.

There is a rule that once your erections are getting weaker (especially those when you wake up), then you are overdoing your workouts. If this is the case, you should take a break for a few days to let your penis recover and cut down the number of repetitions per day.

If you are looking for more specific tips regarding boosting your length or girth with jelqing, check out these 2 resources on PhalloGauge: Jelqing for Girth and Jelqing for Length.

The routine mentioned in this guide is one of the safest and most effective routines out there, but there are slight variations as well. To make sure that you have complete overview of different methods, make sure you consult these posts as well:

I highly recommend you to incorporate stretching of your penis into your routine to boost your results. There is a good jelqing program called JP’s 90 Day Routine on Pegym that includes stretches and different grips as well. Just click the link above to learn more.

PROMISING RESULTS & GAINS

FROM VARIOUS 3RD PARTIES

“Do longer duration strokes (5-10 sec), that´s what helped me. Also, don´t expect 2″ gains because that happens very rarely. Keep 1″ as the goal. Don´t forget jelqing is great for your sex life overall because even if one doesn´t gain size, in most cases it helps improve erection quality and sexual stamina.”

User Batman from Pharmacyforums.org

“Wow, this thread is making me feel better. I´m thinking the average time frame to see results is between two ad three moths. I´m on my 5th week, and I have more veins and a better flaccid but definitely no erect gains. Falo, is it true that between your 4th month and your 6th month, you gained 1.2″ in length? I hope I have a gain like that to look forward to.”

User Samurai from Pegym.com

“Basically, I´ve gained a little over an inch in length – most of it in the past month or two.”

User Newbie from Thundersplace.org

“I did it for 5 months, a combination of jelqing and stretching for about 15-20 minutes per day 5 days a week. My penis went from 6,5 to 7 inches non-bone pressed and my girth went from 5,3 to 5,7 inches. Erection quality also improved. These days I just do a light routine 3 days a week to maintain for a few months until I can stop completely and keep all my gains.”

User iLiketoLift898 from Forum.Bodybuilding.org

“Today is 5 months and I grew a total of 1 1/4 inch in length and about 3/4 inch in girth (never thought it would happen). I am very happy and I would like to get 3/4 inch length and 3/4 girth more. Man, I would be very happy. Good luck to all you guys.”

User Old Reliabel from Pegym.com

Just keep in mind that these quotes and feedback are collected from 3rd party websites and that I can not guarantee that they are genuine. But these seem real to me.

THE REASON WHY JELQING WORKS

scientists mobile

scientists

I know that online reviews and feedback cannot be fully trusted these days as anyone can write anything on a forum without any proof. Although the user results I have provided seem legit to me, I have decided to look at the science and I have an excellent message for you.

The jelqing is based on two main principles:

  1. Expanding the spongy parts in your penis (corpora cavernosa &
    corpus spongiosum)
  2. Extending and stretching your suspensory ligament

As you could learn in the sections above, while you jelq you trap the blood in your shaft and increase the internal pressure in your penis. This puts your tissues under a lot of stress and causes micro tearing on a cellular level.

Don’t be afraid as this is a natural reaction of bodily tissues that are placed upon a lot of stress. They always try to adapt to new conditions.

If you allow for enough rest time between your workout sessions, these micro-tears will heal and will result in new tissue growth. This way, your tissues will become larger and able to hold more blood leading to larger and firmer erections.

Even science confirms that permanent penis enlargement is possible.

There have been several small studies conducted on the efficacy of traction-based penis enlargement through extenders, devices that stretch your penis for a long time each day (it works on the same principle as jelqing). Their conclusion was positive in general:

“In conclusion, penile extenders appear to be an effective treatment for patients who complain of ‘short penis’. The application of such devices can be recommended in all patients regardless of the penile length, because of the low risk of complications. After promising results in the treatment of short penis, penile extenders have also been used in an attempt to correct the defect associated with Peyronie’s disease.”

Another research study by M. Nikoobakht (2011) showed a permanent increase in length and a potential increase of the girth of the glans. Sadly, no significant increase in the girth of the penis shaft was observed:

“The mean flaccid penile length increased from 8.8 ± 1.2 cm to 10.1 ± 1.2 cm and 10.5 ± 1.2 cm, respectively, in the first and third months of follow-up, which was statistically significant (P < 0.05). Mean stretched penile length also significantly increased from 11.5 ± 1.0 cm to, respectively, 12.4 ± 1.3 cm and 13.2 ± 1.4 cm during the first and second follow-up (P < 0.05). No significant difference was found regarding proximal penile girth. However, it was not the same regarding the circumference of the glans penis (9.3 ± 0.86 cm vs. 8.8 ± 0.66 cm, P < 0.05).”

Despite the scientifically confirmed principle of traction based permanent penis enlargement, this method is still dangerous and can lead to a great harm to your penis and your health.

That is why you need to consult a medical professional first before you decide to start with jelqing. Also, you need to realize that you are doing this on your own risk and that you may experience the following side-effects.

BENEFITS OF JELQING

Jelqing, although being potentially dangerous, has several crucial health benefits related to your sex life. If you are following a reasonable routine and doing correct jelqs, you can expect these changes:

  • Improved blood flow to your penis
  • Straightening of penis curvature
  • Improving the quality of your erections
  • Permanent, gradual and slow penis enlargement (mainly girth gains)
  • Ability to better control your ejaculations
  • Longer-lasting erections
  • Promotes the delivery of nutrients to your penile tissue
  • Boosting your confidence in the bedroom

As you can see, jelqing can significantly affect your sex life. Sadly, this exercise can cause some serious side-effects.

SIDE EFFECTS & INJURIES YOU MAY EXPERIENCE

man-with-erection-issues mobile

man with erection issues

Each and every penis enlargement technique comes with some side-effects. Some are very common and harmless, while others are rare but very dangerous.

The best way to avoid the following side-effects is to stop jelqing as soon as you experience any discomfort (if you start to experience any pain it may be too late):

  • Red spots & bruising – This is one of the most common side effects among beginners. Red spots (needle-like) are tiny capillaries that burst after being exposed to too much pressure. These usually go away within the first 24-48 hours and they are the primary sign that you should use either less pressure or take more time warming up.
  • Rash – Rash is usually a sign that you are using less lubrication than you should. It may appear as a small reddish area that may itch. Use mild creams designed to alleviate rash such as cocoa butter.
  • Thrombosed veins – This side effect is not that common among men who jelq. A thrombosed vein is caused by applying too intense squeezing pressure for a longer period of time. It results in a distended vein that is very visible but should be painless. You should rest, provide enough heat, and reduce the intensity of your exercises.
  • Discoloration – Discoloration is a common side-effect of jelqing. This term refers to the darkening of your skin in the mid-shaft of your penis. It is also known as a “brown band”. It often signals that you are not resting enough or that you are not warming up for long enough.
  • Strained & torn ligaments – Strained ligaments can occur because of overworking your routine and not taking enough time for recovery. You know you have strained ligament when you feel the pain in the base of your penis that extends up to the lower abdomen. That is why you need to stop exercising and take enough rest time as soon as you feel any significant discomfort while jelqing. Otherwise, you may even tear your ligament.
  • Loss of sensation & erection problems – If you experience this side-effect then you have done something wrong and have not followed instructions properly. Usually, erection problems and loss of sensation are signs of a nerve damage caused by its compression, overexerted muscles, not listening to the signs that your body needs rest and recovery, or by bending your semi-erect penis during mid-jelq (NEVER DO THIS). If you experience loss of sensation, stop immediately and if you do not see improvement in a very short time, then seek out a medical professional immediately.
  • Baseball bat effect – In this case, a penis starts to look like a bat because of uneven gains caused by uneven pressure applied during jelqing. You will experience length gains at the base of your penis while girth gains will concentrate towards your glans. Your penis will resemble the baseball bat.
  • Donut effect – This issue may happen especially among circumcised men. When you overdo your jelqing session, or you are too intense with it, the bodily fluids inside your penis tissues are pushed toward your glans and collecting in a ring formation around it. This will resemble a donut on your penis.

As you can see, jelqing can be quite dangerous to the health of your penis if you are not listening to your body’s signs it needs more time to recover. Just keep in mind that you are doing these exercises at your own risk, that is why I always recommend to rather take more recovery time than you need just to be safe.

I always prefer the option of having a smaller penis that works rather than a large one that does not.

JELQING DEVICES

A lot of men who are jelqing for some time claim that they get much better workout sessions with a much more consistent level of pressure if you use special devices and machines.

There are several products you can choose from:

  1. Jelq Device
  2. The Penilizer
  3. Power J Gym

They all seem to work on the same principle as their designs are mostly similar. However, there are some men who claim that the best and most effective session can be achieved only by your own hand.

So, it is up to you whether you will try these or not.

I deal with the issue of penis enlargement for several years already and I have analyzed many different ways of growing the penis size at home. Sadly, not each and every one worked.

From what I have learned over the years, there are some things you can add to jelqing to make it much more effective.

NURTURE YOUR PENIS

Do you remember the main principle on which jelqing is based on? Yes, I mean creating those microtears in your tissues and leaving enough time for your body to repair them.

Well, your body should not only have enough time to heal itself, it also needs enough “building blocks” delivered to the targeted area through your bloodstream. That is why you do a “warm up” and “cool down” phase and apply heat to and massage your penis – to increase your blood flow.

However, some men argue that to see much faster results and better gains, it is good to increase the amount of “building blocks” and your blood-flow into your penile area by various pills and supplements as well.

Actually, my personal recommendation is a pill called Male Extra, but there are many other good male enhancement pills you can choose from.

OTHER PE EXERCISES

Yes, even when you are trying to build muscle mass in the gym you are not focusing only on one exercise. You should choose a more complex approach to penis enlargement as well.

That is why you should add more exercises to your routine, such as:

  • Ultimate stretcher
  • Rotating stretch
  • Kegels
  • Opposite stretch
  • Backward puller
  • Thumb stretcher

I discuss these exercises in great details in this article here. It is always a good idea to incorporate jelqing exercises into a more complex routine that includes some stretches and kegels as well.

TRY PENIS EXTENDERS

If you do not like to do your stretching exercises by hand or just don’t have enough time each day to dedicate to penis enlargement, then there is a device called a penis extender. As the name implies, this device extends and stretch your penis.

Remember those research studies I was talking about earlier?

This is the type of device that they have been using in their experiments. You just put it on, wear it for several hours a day (with regular breaks of course) and it does the stretching for you.

There are lots of brands of penis extenders on the market these days. But from my research, I like two brands the most: SizeGenetics and MaleEdge.

EXPERIMENT WITH HYDRO-BASED PUMPS

Another excellent way to increase the blood flow into your penis is through penis pumps. By pumps, I do not mean those old, air based vacuum devices. There is a much better option to complement your jelqing routine.

These are known as hydro-based pumps.

As the name implies, they create underpressure by water that distributes the suction power much more evenly on your penis shaft than those old air based pumps. You can learn more about these devices in this article.

As with any other product on the market, there are several competing brands out there but my two favorites are BathMate and Penomet.

KEEP IN MIND

Incorporating the above tips can make your final growth even more impressive than it would be with just jelqing alone.

There are many forums on the internet where you can find testimonials from real people who combined various techniques for the best results.

And those results are incredible.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)

I have tried my best to create the most comprehensive guide on the topic of jelqing. However, if you still have a question on your mind, then browse through my FAQ section below.

Because over time, this section grew significantly in its size, I have decided to create an overview with quick access. You can jump to the answer to your desired question by clicking the link below.

Are my gains from jelqing permanent or just temporary?

FAQ #1

Yes, your gains from jelqing will be permanent, especially if they are a part of a proper penis enlargement routine composed of various types of exercises. If you are a regular reader of this website you may have already noticed that I have been dealing with penis enlargement for quite some time already.

Actually, after years of researching, I think jelqing is one of the most effective exercises you can do for permanent gains.

The changes will be noticeable in the first six weeks. The best part? You can achieve permanent gains both in your length as well as girth.

Can jelqing help me last longer during sex?

FAQ #2

Yes, jelqing can help you to last longer during sex. It will improve the quality of your erection and increase the blood flow into your penis. This way, you will be able to maintain a firm erection much longer.

Also, if your issue is premature ejaculation caused by an overly sensitive head of your penis, then jelqing can help you significantly as this exercise can decrease the sensitivity of skin on your glans.

Just keep in mind that premature ejaculation can have a lot of other causes that jelqing will not address.

Is jelqing safe? Can I injure myself?

FAQ #3

Yes, jelqing is safe as long as you follow the instructions, do a pre-workout warm up and take your time for a cool-down phase. Also, you musn’t overdo your workout session.

Sadly, you can injure yourself easily while jelqing if you do not follow the general safety recommendations. Your injuries may be quite serious:

  • Baseball bat effect – In this case, a penis starts to look like a bat because of uneven gains caused by uneven pressure applied during jelqing. You will experience length gains at the base of your penis while girth gains will concentrate towards your glans. Your penis will resemble the baseball bat.
  • Donut effect – This issue may happen especially among circumcised men. When you overdo your jelqing session, or you are too intense with it, the bodily fluids inside your penis tissues are pushed toward your glans and collecting in a ring formation around it. This will resemble a donut on your penis.
  • Red spots or discoloration – This is the most common side effect of jelqing, especially for beginners. The red spots on your penis, also known as “Newbie spots”, mean tiny bursts of capillaries inside the skin of your penis. In general, they disappear in 24-48 hours. This is often a sign of a poor warm-up phase or too intense grip.

My advice to avoid injuring yourself is to always start slowly, do a warm-up before and a cool-down after your session, and lengthen your exercise routine gradually. Also, always follow instructions.

When can I expect my results?

FAQ #4

Guys, I am not going to lie to you. Jelqing is no miracle solution that will make your penis big in just a few days. If you do jelqing exercises properly and follow a reasonable routine of daily exercises, it will take around 6 to 8 weeks to see the first results.

You need to realize that during the first few weeks you may not see any measurable results despite the fact that you are working really hard. However, you may notice an improvement in the firmness and quality of your erections (especially those morning erections).

Just do not fall into thinking that you need to apply more pressure on your penis. Continue and your results will come in the end.

How often & for how long can I jelq?

FAQ #5

If you are just beginning with jelqing and penis enlargement in general, then I highly recommend you to follow this basic routine:

  • Follow the warm-up phase for 5 minutes
  • Follow the stretching phase for another 5 minutes
  • Jelq for 10 minutes
  • Follow the warm-down phase for 5 minutes

Follow this beginners routine for two to three times a week in the beginning, and then rise this number gradually up to five days a week with two rest days.

The optimal five-day week regime is to work out three days in a row, then have one day off, then jelq for two other days, and then again take one day off. You can follow this routine for as long as you want.

Just keep in mind that your workout routine should consist of several penis enlargement exercises, not just jelqing. While you will receive the most gains during your first year, you can perform jelqing even after that, but your gains will be significantly lower.

What erection level should I jelq at?

FAQ #6

This is one of the most important questions you should be asking when you decide to start with jelqing. The minimal level of your erection should be between 40-50%. The optimal levels are between 50-65% of your maximal erection.

In the beginning, you should not jelq while having more than 80% erection. There is one rule you should know about – a higher level of your erection will results in lesser length but greater girth gains and vice versa.

However, if you jelq with too low erection level, your gains will be very uneven. You will experience a low pressure at the beginning of your jelq and a very high one at the end. This will result in a baseball bat shape of your penis caused by more length gains at the base of your penis and more girth gains towards your glans.

Please read the next section very carefully!

Never do jelqing while having 90-100% erection. In the best case scenario, you will see no gains from this exercise, and you will just lose time. In the worst scenario, you will experience a lot of pain, and you will cause yourself an injury with tissue damage.

If you get a full-blown erection during your jelqing session, stop and let it go down slightly before continuing. If you feel like you are going to ejaculate, you need to pause for a bit to let this feeling subside before continuing.

How should I warm up and cool down my penis?

FAQ #7

Warming up and warming down phases are the most important steps in jelqing as they will loosen up your connective tissue and increase the blood flow to your penis with necessary nutrients for recovery and growth.

Both should last around five minutes each.

There are several ways you can warm up and cool down your penis before and after jelqing:

  • Hot wet towel wraps
  • Warmed up rice-filled sock
  • Heating pad
  • Hot shower
  • Water cup
  • Alladin´s bottle

I recommend choosing an option that will fit your daily routine the best. Not everyone has easy access to shower during the day, and it is up to you which one will work the most for you.

Should I use lubricants? Do you recommend any?

FAQ #8

Guys, when you are beginning with jelqing, I always recommend using enough lube to avoid excessive skin irritation caused by friction. This way, you will reduce the chance of bursting capillaries in your skin and will perform a correct jelq much more easily.

There are two main groups of lubes you can find on the market:

  1. Water-based lubricants such as Astroglide, KY Jelly, or Udder cream.
  2. Oil-based lubricants such as Canola oil, Coconut oil, Vaseline, Emu oil, or Olive oil.

My advice would be to use one that fits with your skin the best. Some people react better to water-based options while others react better to natural oils.

However, choose one with a high viscosity that allows for multiple uses. Never use shampoo or soap as it may irritate and dry your skin.

Can I ejaculate during jelqing? Do you recommend it?

FAQ #9

I do not recommend ejaculating before, during, or after your penis enlargement routine, whether it includes jelqing exercise or not. While nothing bad should happen with your penis during ejaculation, your body goes through a lot of physiological changes.

These include an immediate drop in testosterone levels and tightening of connective tissue in your penis. Both these changes may negatively affect the final results you will achieve during your jelqing sessions.

What should I do about pain and soreness during jelqing?

FAQ #10

You can experience a slight discomfort and soreness during jelqing. Particularly for beginners, these are very common in the first stages of jelqing. Luckily, once your body gets used to this exercise, any discomfort and soreness will pass.

Just pay attention to any sort of pain.

If you experience even the slightest level of pain stop doing your exercises immediately as you are probably doing these in a wrong way or too often. Take a rest from exercising for a few days and maintain regular hot wraps for a faster recovery of your penis.

When should I make my jelqing routine more intense?

FAQ #11

The tissue in your penis will gradually adapt to the pressure you are causing by jelqing. This adaptation is behind your penis getting bigger and firmer. That is why you need to gradually increase the intensity of jelqing over time.

There are some signs indicating that you are ready to increase the intensity of your jelqing exercise:

  • Firmer and better erections: If you experience better and firmer erections gradually, you can keep improving your routine with more sets and more intense techniques.
  • Weaker erections and no gains: If you experience weaker erections, and plateaus in growth, you should slow down, make your sessions easier and take enough rest days to allow for a better recovery.

My advice is to always pay attention to the quality of your erections. That way, your penis will tell you whether it is exhausted or whether it can do more.
