What is jelqing?
Jelqing is basically a stretching exercise for your penis. It is mainly massaging the penis tissue and stretching the skin to create small tears that look swollen when they heal. This apparently makes your penis look longer and thicker. Here’s if this actually makes a difference.
What’s the point?
The whole point of jelqing is to make your penis larger. Although there is no evidence of jelqing actually increasing the size of your penis, there are multiple claims of how jelqing can help.
Jelqing increases the girth of the penis when it is flaccid as well as erect.
Jelqing increases the length of your penis when it is flaccid or erect.
Jelqing can also make your erections last longer.
Does it actually work?
There is a simple and short answer. No, Jelqing does not really work and there isn’t enough science or research to prove that jelqing might increase the size of the penis.
What are the Side Effects to Jelqing?
From what is heard, jelqing is pretty safe as long as you are careful and you don’t squeeze or rub your penis too hard or too aggressively.
Potential side effects include:
Pain and Soreness
How Do You Jelq Properly?
Here’s how you can “Jelq”:
Put your index finger and thumb in an O shape, like the “okay” hand signal.
Place the O-shaped gesture at the base of your penis.
Make the O smaller until you put mild pressure on your penis shaft.
Slowly move your finger and thumb toward the head of your penis until you reach the tip. Reduce the pressure if this feels painful.
Loosen your grip at the tip. It should take you about 3 to 5 seconds from base to tip.
Repeat this once per day for about 20 minutes.
Jelqing Exercises to Increase Penis Size
Experiment with grips, like the pincer. To do this, put your thumb underneath your shaft, your index finger on the top of the shaft, and squeeze gently with both facing down (like you’re trying to pinch something).
Try it without lube. Using lube is a good safety precaution, but you may want to skip it if you find that it’s making you super hard or overstimulating your nerve endings. Just be careful that you don’t chafe or irritate your skin.
At what point should you discontinue?
If you notice these then you should definitely not take part in jelqing:
Jelqing Before & After
You can definitely try jelqing but do not expect results overnight and there is a higher chance of you not seeing results at all after months. As we said before there is no science or research that proves jelqing to be effective.
