How I went from 5.5 to 7inch and why it hasn't made me any happier
Hi all, I’ve lurked here for about 5 months and decided it was time to post something. It had always been my intention not to post a thread until I hit my goal (8x6) so that I could post one of those super inspirational stories, but since I haven’t gained in the last three months the 8x6 ain’t happening any time soon so I thought I’d share what little experience I have. There’s a lot in my head so forgive me if this goes off on a weird tangent..
I’ll start with why I began PE. I have always been a better-than-average guy. I am better than average looking. I am better than average at sports. I am better than average at pretty much everything (in my humble opinion). However, I have always had a hunch that I was not above average in the penis department. However, by the age of 21 I’d had a few girlfriends (all better than average looking) and none of them had any complaints, so it never really bothered me. Then I read an article on penis size in a magazine. It stated that the average size was 6x5. I went straight to measure. I came in at 5.5x4.5. I was devastated. Suddenly this was a very big issue for me. I just couldn’t accept being below average. I read everything I could find on penis size (all in print as I didn’t have the internet). It all said basically the same stuff, and all of it, every last thing I read, stated categorically that ‘THERE IS NO WAY TO MAKE YOUR PENIS BIGGER’. Well, I wasn’t having it. I decided that since some of my erections were bigger than others, there had to be a way to make sure I had full strength erections all the time. And so I started performing exercises on my winky-dink. (I had no idea that anyone had thought of this before me). I broke every rule in the book. I had no warm up, I had no lube, I exercised mostly on an erect dick. Somehow I didn’t injure myself, and within 6-7 weeks I had gone up to 6.1 inches. Well, I thought I was Newton discovering gravity. I honestly believed I was the first person ever to do this - after all the magazines said it was impossible! But I decided I’d keep it as my little secret. Anyway, since 6.1 was technically above average, I stopped. All I’d ever wanted was to get over the line that separates the small. This was four years ago.
I had a bunch more girlfriends in these years and I would occasionally bring up size. Every one to a lady said my size was fine. Maybe they were all bullshitting me and maybe they weren’t, but what matters is that we had great sex and I felt confident.
Then about two years ago my confidence went. It’s kind of a long story and I’m going to boil it down. I was interested in a girl at my work. We were really good friends and could talk about anything. Anyway, she’d slept with another guy at work who was constantly on about his ‘Warrior’ (his cock). He was so proud of it. But she would always laugh and tell me “oh my good, trust me, he does not have a warrior”. Well, at a party one night this guy got his cock out and one of the girls measured it. It was 7.25 inches. I at this this point had 6.1. Well even though I was crazy about this girl I couldn’t take it further with her. If she was unimpressed by a 7 and a quarter incher, she was gonna be in hysterics at mine. So I decided it was back to my magical exercises. In three months I got to 6.5 inches BPEL (never really measured girth). At this point I felt confident enough to go out with her. The sex was awesome. I brought up the warrior issue and she was pretty cool about it. She said that her mocking him to me was because he was so arrogant about it. She said my size was perfect. Again, maybe she was bullshitting me, but I was happy.
We split up 6 months ago. It was just one of those things. But suddenly I had time on my hands. I thought why not enlarge your cock some more. Whilst we were together I had gotten the internet and discovered that some ancient Africans had apparently invented jelqing before me. I did some research and found thundersplace. So my stats at this point were 6.5x4.5 (I’d never gained any girth). For six months I have PE’d five times a week. In three months I got to 7.0x5.0, which is where I remain.
Here’s how I got there. I went from 5.5 to 6.5 with no guidance whatsoever. All the exercises I did have equivalents here though. My main exercise was basically jelqing. I also did a lot of light bends, but in hindsight this was insanity and I would not recommend it at all. The truth is that these gain came very easily. I was doing no more than 20-25 mins about 4 or 5 times a week (I invented rest days too). Since learning the correct techniques, I did the Newbie routine for a couple of months, but splitting the stretching and the jelqing across the day. When I got round to understanding LOT theory, I realised I was very low (around 7) and moved on to memento’s routine, posed under ‘rapid gains mechanism’. It’s great because it’s based around 20 mins of inverted v-stretching which hits the tunica.
But for the past two months nothing has worked. Nothing has even felt like it’s working. Trust the vets when you read about dick conditioning and gains slowing. My cock feels like it can take anything and will recover the next day good as new. In the three months since my gains stopped I have tried pretty much everything. The only road I haven’t gone down is hanging, because as an uncut guy I’ve read a lot about foreskin irritation, which I get from stretching. I am at a standstill and it is incredibly frustrating. This frustration has
Become an obsession. I am totally and utterly obsessed with my dick. It has become the thing on which all my confidence is based. If my dick feels like it’s swinging, I’m feel fantastic all over. If it is turtled up or not as hard as it has been, I feel like it’s two inches long and I feel crap.
Now I KNOW that I’m now above average, but that doesn’t matter anymore. It’s all about how you perceive it. This is how I’ve come to understand the people with starting stats like 8.5x5.5. I thought they were nuts. I’d kill to have that. But it’s all about what’s in your head and this is the message I want to get across to any Newbies. Yes, it is absolutely possible to add a couple of inches to your dick. For the record I’ve done less than 11 months PE in total (over four years) and added 1.5 lengh and 0.5 girth. If you work at it it will happen. But believe the warning at the front of thunders that says that it alone won’t make you happy. If you have insecurities they will resurface. I should feel great that I came from 5.5 to 7, but I actually have a lot less confidence than I did before I ever considered this whole thing.
But I’m not gonna end on a negative note. I know I’ll hit 8x6 sooner or later. And I also believe that barring injury, all PE is a positive thing. But I just wanted offer this two cents to newcomers - if you want a bigger dick you’re in the right place, but if there’s something underlying your dick wishes, jelqs and clamps won’t be enough.
