If you do something simultaneously with the protocol and you get no results you will never be quite sure about the effectiveness of the protocol.
PS Why didn’t you answer my pms?
I understand doing another thing at the same time reduces surety of the results. In this case I don’t mind, particularly since boner will be doing the same protocal at total dick downtime. If it works for him and not me that might (suggestively) tell us something.

I am going to replace jelqing with pumping. Lots of people affected by this seem to sight jelqing as the cause for the problem. I think jelqing and pumping largely do similar things; they both force more blood into areas of the penis. The difference is jelqing focuses the pressure on a specific spot which changes with the movement whilst pumping applies and even expansion all around. At a certain point in the exercise jelqing applys a lot of pressure to the glans and I assume consequently to the blood trying to exit the glans (I’ve got no idea about the anatomy of penis). Since the problem is a deflated glans clearly there is some problem with the blood exiting when it shouldn’t and thus jelqing must be detrimental. The reason I don’t think a pump will have a similar affect is that whilst the penis is expanded the blood is not constantly trying to escape as there is an even expansion everywhere. I imagine it like this - Jelqing is repeatedly forcing blood into and out of the glans whilst pumping accommodates a large amount of blood once, the exit of the blood is only abused once in pumping for 10 minutes vs 200 times for jelqing. Another reason for me switching is Urologists’s prescribe pumps; they are medical professionals who work on exacts sciences who wouldn’t prescribe something dangerous.
I am also going to replace manual stretches with hanging. Lots of people affected by this have complained about numbness and sighted nerve damage from stretching as possible cause. Hanging (Bib) applies pressure far more evenly than manual stretches, so is far less likely to apply to much pressure to the wrong place (nerve bundles near the glans).
Tweaking I am very interested to find out your results.
Personally I have not found jelqing or pumping to exascerbate this problem and am about 95% confident jelqing didn’t cause this issue for me. That being said, I do understand and agree with your reasoning that it would make more sense that jelqing could cause or worsen this problem whereas (particularly light) pumping is less likely to
As for switching to hanging, it certainly depends the hanging method. I use vaccuum suction caps as hangers and have always found them to be by far the most comfortable, in fact theyr’e the only method I’ve been able to tolerate whatsoever. Just make sure you slowly build your set count and time rather than just jumping straight in!
I am also very interested to find out my results! I will post here in due time. Only at day 3 so far but already I feel a ‘change’ lets hope it’s not confirmational bias >_<
…Tweaking what does your DMSO bottle look like? White with blue writing?
Exactly so. Large bold ‘DMSO’ subtitled with ‘Dimethyl sulfoxide’ and ‘99.9% pure’ all in capital letters. Says it’s pharmecutical grade solvent for ‘industrial use only’!
