Never jelq while erect
I was known as “poople” here before and I injured myself from erect jelqing almost 2 years ago and made a thread on here about it almost 2 years ago. I decided I’d give an update.
I don’t want anyone to make the same mistake as me. This forum warns against fully erect jelqing saying you’re more likely to injure yourself, but I don’t think that’s a good enough warning. A lot of the responses to injuries here are just like “Take a break and start again in a week or 2 and you’ll be fine” So when I decided I was going to try fully erect jelqing once I thought that even if I did injure myself it wouldn’t be that big a deal and it would heal in a week or 2 and be fine. I never would have tried fully erect jelqing if I knew there was a possibility of long-term/permanent injury.
I wasn’t aggressive when I jelqed while erect and I didn’t do it for very long, and I stopped right when I started to feel some pain. Now it’s almost been 2 years and my penis is still messed up. It’s a bit better, but barely. I haven’t noticed very much progress in my injury healing over almost 2 years, but there has been some progress, so there is still hope.
I’m making this to warn new people from making the same mistake as me. It doesn’t seem like rubbing your fingers up your penis can do much damage, but it can, and I didn’t realize this till the damage was already done. All the blood draining veins are on the outside of the penis and the arteries that fill the penis with blood are on the inside, so when jelqing while erect you are blocking blood from leaving your penis while forcing more blood into your penis, and it builds up so much pressure in your penis that it can start to tear it apart from the inside. It also destroys the valves in your veins that prevent blood from flowing the wrong direction, because when you jelq, the blood that is trying to leave through your veins is being forced against the valves in the wrong direction and that damages the valves. I think this is what leads to people having difficulty maintaining erections when they are standing or in missionary position, because gravity starts pushing the blood down the wrong way through the veins of the penis and the damaged valves can’t stop it from happening, so it causes the erection to fade away because of the messed up bloodflow.
I’m not looking for an argument, I just want to warn people of the possibilities so they don’t make my mistake. Although I know it’s kind of pointless, because they probably won’t see this until after they injure themselves. I think the owners should definitely make these possible risks more obvious to new people coming on to the site. I mostly blame myself for the situation I’m in, but I came here eager to start and I quickly read a few things and started, like I’m sure a lot of beginners do. Just a simple straightforward warning about the specific possible risks of jelqing would’ve prevented the last couple years of my life from being destroyed. Using broad terms like “higher risk of injury” isn’t going to stop a lot of new people from doing it, because they don’t know the severity of the possible injury.
