Canning tongs for comfort, OK grip for pressure - which one?
When I jelq, I use one of two methods:
1. The OK grip detailed in the newbie routine, or
2. Canning tongs.
Either way, I use coconut oil for lubrication and it works well. When I use the OK grip I feel more pressure as I go through the stroke, and it makes me feel like I’m getting a better workout. However, when I use the OK grip it is not comfortable for me to go through the stroke; I need to either hold the skin taut at the base with my other hand, resulting in uncomfortable friction during the stroke, or move the skin of the shaft with the OK grip which feels too much like stretching the skin. When I use the canning tongs, I cannot apply pressure all around the shaft like I can with the OK grip, and as a result it feels less satisfying and challenging. But perhaps because the surface of the canning tongs is smoother than my own skin, I do not get the same skin stretching problem when I use them and therefore the tongs are more comfortable.
My question is this: should I pick the comfort of the canning tongs and avoid stretching the skin? Or should I do the OK grip for the increased pressure and try to figure out a way to avoid my workout stretching the skin too much?
I am circumcised with medium tightness, in case this factors into anybody’s answers.
