Jelqing: What Is It And Does It Work?

There are a myriad of ways to enlarge your penis if you so desire, but the unfortunate reality is that so many of them require shady pills or invasive surgery. If you want to look into an option that is a bit more natural, consider taking up jelqing.

Here’s the thing: there are a lot of men out there who are decidedly unhappy with their natural endowment.

Everywhere you turn in media and popular culture, you’ll find people who make the size of your penis a crucial point of manhood. For some reason, penis size has become the determinant for a man’s sexual prowess. The dick jokes keep coming, but are they really funny?

No wonder men can get very sensitive when the size of genitalia is brought up!

Anxiety is common amongst men, particularly with regard to the length and girth of their penis. They are haunted by the possibility of being below average. Unsurprisingly, this constant anxiety can significantly affect their self-esteem and their dating life. The ironic truth, though, is that women aren’t as hung up on size as men are, because length isn’t a deciding factor for women’s sexual satisfaction.

Given the stigma attached to size, you shouldn’t be surprised by the fact that there’s a pretty lucrative market for penis enlargement. Because men feel self-conscious, they are constantly seeking ways to improve and enlarge, hence the significant market.

Wanting to be “bigger” isn’t really a big deal, but the problem is that many of the procedures for enlargement tend to be rather sketchy. You’ll see the supplements all over the Internet and even in your spam folder, promising to give you the length and girth you dream of. A more scientific approach is to enlarge your penis via surgery, but then that’s a very invasive option that even then has no guarantee for success.

Don’t be tempted by these promises of enlargement that you receive online. First of all, many of them have no real results to speak of. More importantly, the unknown components of these supplements could even end up harming you. You don’t want to take risks with your penis now, do you?

Thankfully, there is a natural and completely free alternative that might just be up your alley.

What Is Jelqing?

Unless you’re really into penis enlargement, it’s likely that you’ve never heard of this term before. It’s an ancient technique from the Middle East, but has recently gotten more attention state-side. Men want an enlargement option that requires no supplements and isn’t invasive, so this technique became more and more popular. We don’t really know how people started looking into it, but it’s become the natural alternative of the moment.

So what is it, exactly? The easiest way to explain is to call it a massage technique. It requires regular stretching and stroking of the penis in order to eventually improve its length and increase the strength of erections over time.

Some people think of it as “milking a cow”. Sure, that’s not the sexiest comparison possible, but it’s pretty useful. The technique is quite similar, and if you know how to milk a cow then you already know how to do this. Similarly, you may have noticed that this massage technique sounds suspiciously like masturbating, but trust us when we say they are not the same.

Okay, so how exactly is this supposed to work? The key here is the blood flow. You are stroking and pulling to get an increase in blood flow to the penis head, so that it can learn to accommodate and grow with this increase eventually. Some people say this method also makes erections a lot stronger and last longer.

How is it done?

Again, this isn’t masturbation. If you get to that point while trying to enlarge, you’re doing it wrong. The last thing you want here is over-stimulation, as that will interfere with your enlargement efforts.

At any point during this process, stop if you’re feeling any significant discomfort. We are not doctors, and you know your body best. If this doesn’t feel right for you, prioritize your health and stop immediately.

    1. Start and end with a warm compress. Before doing anything to your penis, make sure that it is comfortable and ready. A warm compress helps loosen things up. You could even do this
      post-shower, just so you’re fully relaxed. Your body — and more importantly your penis — should be comfortable. Find a good position before you start to avoid cramping.
    2. Do light stretches so you don’t strain your penis. As with most exercises, you have to make sure that you’re limber enough if you don’t want to be injured. Be gentle and slowly pull your penis in different directions. You’re trying to loosen up. Be patient because this warm up is absolutely necessary to avoid injury. Repeat until you feel like you’re ready to get started.
    3. Don’t forget your lubricant. Again, we are not jerking off, we’re just making sure your penis isn’t too dry. If you go in without a lubricant and try to stroke and pull, you’ll find yourself chaffing in no time. Use your regular lubricant or whatever works best for you.
    4. Don’t go beyond half-erect. Earlier, we discussed how this enlargement technique is all about blood flow. You’re trying to increase blood flow to the head of the penis by massaging and stroking. If your penis is at full attention, there’s no room left for the blood flow. This is why you should never go beyond half-erect while doing this technique. Stay relaxed and keep yourself steady to get this done.
    5. Hold the base of the penis with your thumb and forefinger. Think of it as doing the okay sign, except you are wrapped around the base of the shaft. Don’t grip too hard because you’re not trying to squeeze. You just want to hold the base properly before you start the actual massage.
    6. Pull your hand forward, but don’t touch the head of the penis. You’re not going all the way, so to speak. This is the massage itself, and this is what separates the technique from masturbation. You are not stroking furiously here. Instead, pull your hand forward gently and with very light pressure. You are sliding with each pull and should not take too long with every stroke.Once your hand reaches the penis head, let go. That completes one pull and you should go back to the base and slide again. Don’t squeeze — this is very important. You don’t want to get over-enthusiastic and injure your penis. Don’t go beyond five minutes per session.
    7. Repeat three times a week. Any more than three times and you’re just asking for trouble. Even though you use a light hand, this sort of pulling can still affect the penis. Moderate yourself and repeat the massage only three times a week to avoid injury.

Is it safe?

If you’re comparing it to actual penis surgery and the many shady pills proffered online, then yes, this is at least safer. However, we cannot avoid the reality that doing any sort of massage or exercise on your penis can still be harmful, as it is a very sensitive body part that requires regular and proper care.

Skipping the lubricant, for example, can bring significant damage. Your penis will end up chafed and red with irritation. No one wants that!

If you skip the warm up part we mentioned earlier, you could also end up with painful cramping and burst capillaries. Some might even see some discoloration after improperly massaging their penis.

Even worse: jelqing too much, too hard, and too often can leave your penis with micro-tears and swelling — yikes!

So we’re just reminding you that though this process is generally safer and less invasive, it still has its downsides. You could still see some injury, but only if you don’t follow the steps provided above. If you start slow and maintain a gentle stroke, you’ll be safe. Don’t get overly eager as you don’t want to accidentally damage your penis.

Always start small, then work your way up with each session. Be careful and hold your penis with just enough strength to make it work. You can test it with different grip styles and angles until you find what you are most comfortable with. Keep the sessions short and make sure to take note of what you need to work on for next time. Eventually, you’ll figure out what works best for you.

Is it effective?

Now that’s a question for the ages! Jelqing results are generally anecdotal, meaning there are no scientific studies to back it up. This isn’t a massage technique that doctors will gladly vouch for, given that they don’t have the rigorous research-backed data for it.

There are, in fact, some doctors who are concerned that people might get into this massage technique incorrectly and end up damaging their penis. The damage can range from minor irritation to penile scarring, and that sort of possibility isn’t something doctors want to risk, hence the lack of medical support for this enlargement technique.

Anecdotally, some enthusiasts have talked about how they increased the length of their penises by at least an inch after months of massage. They did note, however, that the improvement can regress if you stop doing your regular massage, so you’ll have to do it indefinitely for the results to remain.

So let’s say you want to try it. To see if the practice is effective at all, make sure to maintain a jelqing before and after log. This will help you see if there really is an improvement over time. If it shows signs of increasing length and better erections, proceed. Otherwise, you’ll know it’s time to find a different penis enlargement solution.

Should you try it?

We can’t decide on your behalf, but we can talk about the pros and cons.

First of all, this is completely free. You don’t have to pay for anything, be it gadgets or supplements. You don’t have to send your credit card details to some shady stranger on the Internet. You don’t have to schedule a surgery. This is non-invasive and you can set your own pace. You can start slow and work your way up, so it’s all in your hands.

What are the negatives then? There is no scientific data to back up this technique. You won’t find doctors and medical practitioners vouching for this penis enlargement option. All we have are anecdotes from people online, so take from that what you will.

The good news is that this is a very low risk and low effort penis enlargement solution, so you can at least give it a shot. As long as you follow the steps delineated above, you should be fine. At the very least, you’re not going to need surgery or supplements.

Are there are other natural alternatives for enlargement?

In reality, there are many ways to make your penis look bigger without actually trying to increase the size. Small changes can create the illusion of a bigger penis, so you don’t have to take on any penis enlargement supplements or procedures.

Here are some options you can consider to make your penis look bigger than it really is.

Lose weight.

When your belly is huge, it overshadows your penis and makes it look smaller than it really is. Losing just a bit of belly fat can make a real difference. When the base of the shaft is obscured, you diminish the visual and make your penis look shorter. That’s obviously not ideal!

Quit smoking.

If you want erections that actually last longer and stay stronger, you need to be in good shape. Smoking can constrict your blood vessels, so less blood flows to the penis. This can negatively impact your performance in bed.

Do a bit of trimming.

The word manscaping sounds horrible, but it’s just a little bit of grooming for your bush, to be honest. Again, as with losing the belly fat, anything obscuring the base of your penis can diminish it visually.

Once you trim your pubic area, your penis will easily look larger and longer.

Exercise regularly.

When you’re in good health, the rest will follow. Poor circulation can affect your erections negatively. By exercising regularly, your blood flow will improve and this can help you get stronger erections over time.

Besides, a sedentary lifestyle can lead or contribute to erectile dysfunction, so you don’t want that. Get moving!

Get into kegels.

If you want stronger erections and more powerful orgasms, start looking into kegels. Though most people assume that only women can do this, the truth is that pelvic floor exercises (aka kegels) can be just as beneficial for men.

Try to stop mid-stream while peeing to figure out where your pelvic floor muscles are, then start exercising them regularly. These exercises are quite easy to do and aren’t very time-consuming, so they are definitely worth considering.

Grow your self-esteem, not your penis.

Here’s the thing: society has misled us into assuming that size is the most important factor for sex and attraction. In reality, most women would rather be with an average-sized man who knows what he’s doing.

Length and girth pale considerably when compared to technique. The most important part is to be considerate to your partner’s needs, and to be responsive in bed. Don’t get too caught up in the size obsession that we often get in popular culture and media.

More importantly, you need to build up your self-esteem. Don’t let size issues bog you down. Poor self-esteem and a lack of confidence can actually affect your performance in bed negatively.

Don’t worry about size too much! Instead, work on cooperating with your partner and learning to be more communicative so you both get a rocking good time.
