Hello all. I am writing this as a warning to all of you on here and for peace of mind for me. It’s May 2009 and I’m watching a programme on UK TV called “Extreme Male Beauty”. The presenter is researching a penis enlargement exercise called “jelqing”. I’ve had a couple of beers and I’m watching this programme and I decide to give it a go. I can’t say I was ever “unhappy” with my penis size (3.5ins flaccid, 6.5in hard), I just did it out of curiosity (and a touch of vanity) more than anything. So I got some lube, got about 2/3 erect and did about 20 “jelqing”strokes stopping before I touched the gland. And this is the point that my life changed forever. Immediately I noticed my penis and scrotum were less sensitive than before, about 80% less sensitive! Also, when I let my penis go flaccid again it looked different, there was a vein on the left side of the shaft that wasn’t there before and the vein on the top of the shaft seemed to have shifted to the side a bit. Also my penis hung to the left more than it did prior and was smaller both in length and girth.
Fast forward 11 months and there has been no change in the state of my penis. The shaft of my penis and scrotum remain numb, my penis in it’s flaccid state is now an inch smaller in length and about half an inch smaller in girth. I struggle to get an erection (something I never had a problem with before) and keeping hold of one is very difficult (I go from erect to completely flaccid in about 30secs if I don’t concentrate), I don’t know how much smaller my erection has got because I haven’t had an erection long enough to really compare.
In a word my life has been destroyed. I am now on anti-depressants and have broken up from my girlfriend of two years due to this. I was once a happy guy who enjoyed life, I now spend my days waiting to go back to sleep so I can forget everything. I recently saw a urologist who said he doesn’t know what I’ve done and can’t give me an answer to my problems. I was thinking of suing the “Extreme Male Beauty” programme as they featured no warning of the possible consequences of this exercise but decided this would be too embarrassing considering the subject.
All this because I “jelqed” 20 times. So my advise to all of you on this board would be, fuck your penis size! Trust me, it’s not worth it. It looks like I’ve ruined my penis for life and I’d hate this to happen to someone else. Be happy with what you’ve got, penis size inferiority is an entirely male created problem! Women love you for who you are and the children you can give them, something I may not get the chance to experience now. So stop the jelqing and whatever else you are doing to your penis and enjoy your health, if you’ve got that you’re completely blessed .
Thanks for reading.
A wild guess here. Bear with me. Is it possible that you did a temporary injury, it healed but the medication is causing your erectile problem? Antidepressants are notorious for causing erectile dysfunction, like 40 percent or higher of people on antidepressants have trouble obtaining and maintaining erections as well as ejaculation. I don’t know how soon after your injury that you started on medication which causes erectile problems. Note do not stop antidepressants suddenly as they can produce withdrawal symptoms. I am not telling you to stop the pills but saying that it is something to consider and to discuss with your doctor. A lot of people hit the bottle (alcohol) when they get depressed, which can cause erection problems. I may very well be wrong and apologise if I am, just trying to help. I hope your situation improves.
