skitola, I’ve got a similar past. I pumped like a madman before knowing about real PE. I look back now, like you, and am surprised my dick didn’t explode. Personally, I don’t think this gave me proper conditioning though. When I started the newb routine, it certainly didn’t feel like I was working with a conditioned penis. We’ve all got to make up our own minds, nobody knows your body like you do. I’m just not sure that a pumping past automatically equals a conditioned penis that’s ready for more. It might for you, it didn’t for me.
