1 Year of PE
As of 10/22/11, it has been a year of PE for me. My method consisted primarily of an extender from x4 Labs and jelquing. I had toyed with PE for a few years, having bought an extender in 2002 from some European outfit. I wore it pretty regularly for the first few weeks, but in retrospect, I didn’t wear it long enough daily for it to be effective. Plus, it had a simple rubber noose with no other fastening straps, so you can imagine it was very uncomfortable.
Over the years, I had also tried pills, toyed with a jelq routine, but didn’t put forth enough effort to see any gains. I guess the reason why I had no discipline was because I wasn’t sure that I wasn’t wasting my time. I finally decided to give it another go in the summer of 2010 because I happened upon a peer reviewed study about the efficacy of extenders in a focus group. The results were promising, plus the study was legit. My wife looked at it for its scientific qualities and it checked out, so I was optimistic about taking PE up again. So after much deliberation and comparison shopping, I finally settled in on the X4 Labs extender.
I live and work overseas, so I ended up with a lot of time to dedicate to PE. I took some measurements, but they weren’t very consistent. I took some sitting, some lying, and some standing. Standing BPEL was about 6”. Sitting was 6.5”. I initially measured girth at the widest point, which of course is the base, which was 4.75. I started wearing the extender 2-3 hours a day, and planned to measure monthly. But I cheated after the first week and decided to measure to reconfirm my BPEL because I had never before measured in at 6.5. Well after that first week, I had already grown to 6.625. I was very excited by then because I knew that the EQ was the same, and my fat pad was slim.
I kept it going, and slowly started incorporating dry jelqs into the routine between hourly extender sessions to get the blood flowing back into the glans, but nothing serious. Well, after the first month, I had gained 5/16 in length, and minimal gain of .075 in EG. I was totally hooked and motivated after that. So I kept up a disciplined routine, wherein I would jelq in the mornings, up to 1000, and wear my extender in the evenings. For awhile, I incorporated a pretty effective ADS that I rigged up out of some boot blousing straps, moleskin, and medical tape.
I seemed to gain an average of 5/16 inches per month in length, and got my BG up to 5.75. During the course of the year, I would come home every 3-4 months, and my wife certainly noticed the difference. I was bottoming out consistently, and it was like she was getting the frame of reference that, being a virgin when we met, she simply didn’t have. She had my sixer for awhile, which was more like a fiver after I had ballooned from about 190 lbs to 258 lbs. Before I started my PE, I had actually lost 55 pounds in 6 months, all of which while I was overseas. When I got back weighing 185 lbs, my wife remarked about how much deeper I could go. Then fast forward to December of that year, I came back home just as thin, but with an extra 3/8 of an inch in length.
It kept up that way. Every 3-4 months, I would come home and my wife would get to experience a ‘new cock’. But my extender routine steadily decreased in between. I went from 2-3 hours a night six days a week, to 2+ hours a night, then to 1 – 2 hours a night, but during this last interval, I could barely pull 1 hour a night in the extender. The issue was that I was growing very weary of wearing the extender. It was too uncomfortable for me to wear at the tension that I required to produce the steady gain of 5/16 per month. Plus, I began having other important things to do in my evenings, which were very difficult, to impossible while wearing the extender. During roughly the last 3 months, I largely dropped jelqing because it was far too tedious, and it would periodically leave me in pain. Instead, I experimented with clamping/edging. The process of clamping and edging was fun. I was shocked to see how plump my penis was when clamped, however, after a month I experienced no gains, so I gave that up.
That being said, after one year, I measured in at 8” plus BPEL while sitting down, and 7.5” while standing. The difference is noteworthy because for most of the year, I solely measured progress while sitting down, which gave me a very inflated BPEL. I always thought that 8” plus was a bit extreme, although the ruler doesn’t lie, so I researched in the forums how to measure, and a lot of people said that measuring while seated was improper. So I manned up and started measuring standing up. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I’m still very happy with my progress. My wife is too. When I got started, I couldn’t in any way shape or form measure anywhere near 7 (or 8). Now I’m over that by .5 inches (at least). My BG is up an inch. I didn’t record my starting UHG, but I think it was about 4.25. I am now just under 5.0 UHG. When I got started, I thought that it would have been worth the time, effort, and expense just to gain a solid half-inch. I’ve far exceeded that. I had no initial girth goals, but I gained an inch there so I am OK with that, but want more.
What’s impressed my wife the most about my year of PE is that my penis is much, much straighter. It used to bend significantly to the left and backwards. The bend is still there, but dramatically reduced.
Now, I am going to give it one more year with a revamped routine. I’m going to go with a hanger for length and pumping for girth. I’ve pumped on my returns to the States, and have always been happy with the response I get from it, so now I’m going to do it on a steady routine. I should be getting my hanger pretty soon. By October 2012, my goal is to be 8” NPB and 6” UHG. I’ll top it all off with getting liposuction on my stubborn fat pad and then go into maintenance mode.
