Jelq - judging pressure visually

Jelq - judging pressure visually

Hey there,

I’ve been jelqing regularly (recently swapped from 3 times a week to 4 times a week) since January of this year. I’ve been experimenting with a lot of techniques and variations for it, and in general I’d say I like switching between simple overhand grips and underhand grips.

HOWEVER, I have been getting some of these “negative PIs”; the one that bugs me right now is absolute lack of morning erection and significant reduction of EQ. This is most certainly PARTLY due to way too much masturbation; I’ll admit to it, so I’m kinda cutting that off.. But I think it’s silly that at 23 years of age, once a day would be too much and would totally decrease my EQ.. Can anyone confirm if this is abnormal?

On the other hand.. It IS possible that I am applying too much pressure during my jelqing, and that’s why I opened this thread; I think I might have some misconceptions about how much pressure I should apply.

Should I be expecting to actually, visually see my penis “swell” up and increase in size as a result of the pressure that my hand is applying? Because I’ve been applying quite a lot of pressure and squeezing hard enough to make it reach, to a certain extent, my “goal girth”. I’ve been reading a lot of comments saying that light to medium grip is more than enough.. So I am slightly confused. Does this mean that I can apply a grip that doesn’t visually affect the size of my penis while I jelq, yet will provide results? As an additional detail, I am usually working with around 40-70% erection strength (I know that’s a big range.. It varies from day to day).

To sum it up.. Should I squeeze hard enough to see the penis actually increase in girth? Are we really supposed to feel some “hard” pushing by the blood inside? Let me rephrase the question the other way around.. How would you know if the pressure is too LIGHT?

I’ll be awaiting your replies. Thanks in advance.

Sincerely yours,
Silver

You may see expansion with a lighter grip. Negative PI’s is a sign your either doing to much PE. Or your grip is to hard. Give it a rest for a few days to see if morning wood returns.

I’ve been wondering the exact same thing about jelqing: how much is too much, how much is too little?

On the one hand, you don’t want to waste your time by stroking your penis too lightly and not producing any results; on the other hand, you don’t want to hurt the poor thing.

Remember I’m a newbie like you:

From what you say, it sounds to me like you are using too much force. If you can visibly see the expansion above the grip, it sounds too intense for a newbie. If you are filling up to your target girth it definitely sounds like it’s too much, I’m actually surprised you haven’t hurt yourself.

Over-training is a possibility. Erectile quality should improve if you are doing it correctly. Since I started jelqing masturbation has been much better.

Here’s a good link regarding the ins and outs of jelqing (this is my first time posting a link to another thread, I hope it works!):

The salty truth about Jelqing

Oh yeah - better too light than too strong, but that’s another obvious statement.

The quality of the jelq is much superior than the amount of jelqing. Five really good slow 3-5 second jelqs is far better than twenty mishapped quick ass jelqing. Stay in the pleasure zone. If it hurts it ain’t working.

I have been reading a lot of threads on jelqing and I still don’t understand this. If the jelq pressure doesn’t increase your size past that of a normal erection, how the hell does it actually do anything? When I jelq I build up enough pressure in the glans to where it is just slightly painful and feels very full. If I do less than this it doesn’t feel like anything.

Try this, it is really cool. Make an OK grip at the base of your penis. This ok grip there for about 10 seconds. Move the grip slowly up to the glans. You should get some real good expansion. The trick is not to choke your dick! Use a light grip. (Don’t jelq the glans stop short of it) repeat five times.

Who cares why it works? For me it enough that it does work. You’ll find debates and debates and debates on how/why PE works. While we read them we can jelq away and get bigger dicks.

I don’t get hugely noticeable size difference from one session of jelqing. But I have gotten a very noticeable size difference over time.

Well, I agree that it really doesn’t matter why it works, just that it works.

On the other hand, it would be nice to learn why it works, as it is an interesting thing to think about. :)

It would also help newbies like me and Sliver, who haven’t got our technique down yet, to know how it works, since knowing how it works and getting a good technique go hand-in-hand.

This is the key here, and important to remember. Jelqing isn’t supposed to cause noticeable increases in size just over one session, just micro-damages to the blood vessels which, over time, lead to greater size. If you are jelqing enough to noticeably increase the size of the penis, in my humble newbie opinion you are over-training, hence the loss of EQ (Sliver).

Sorry for the tone—I didn’t mean to come off as upset. I just don’t know if I’m doing it right. Everyone’s definition of “50% erection” seems to be different, and the official jelq tutorial doesn’t say much about how the exercise is supposed to feel. There’s a lot of information on there but as a newbie I feel like it’s impossible to tell if I’m doing it right.

My personal suspicion is that the hardgainers are guys that have been doing it wrong the whole time and just don’t know.

Edit—if you use a light grip, how do you keep the blood in your penis?

1.To sum it up.. Should I squeeze hard enough to see the penis actually increase in girth?

You should see your penis slightly increasing in girth, but not as a consequence of the hardness of grip alone - more the augmenting engorgemnt you are causing stroke after stroke- moderate grip, low strokes.

2. Are we really supposed to feel some “hard” pushing by the blood inside?
No “hard” pushing; as said, a feeling of fullness, due the amount of blood your penis is stocking - hope it’s clear.

You shoud never feel pain, expecially in the glans. You could damage nerves inside. Jelq shoud give a pleasurable feeling of fullness - repetita iuvant :) .

I agree with your suspicion.

Like marinera says, it should be gradual and pleasurable, not immediate and painful.

I think it will take a while for us to master this technique. It’s just one of those things; like playing music, it takes time to get acquainted with your instrument. In this case your instrument is attached to your pelvis. Can’t buy a replacement if it breaks. :)

The feeling I get is gradual and slightly painful. The glans feels like if I push it much more it will burst. Do you guys let the pressure in the glans subside in between strokes?

Also, do you get any expansion in areas other than the glans?

LOL Hey Bro, I was just like you for about two months. I did gain some, but not a good gain. WHen I Jelqed before, I Grabbed it SO HARD that my Dickhead was about to explode. To add a little, I felt a pain in there. Guess what? MY EQ decreased a lot. I knew something was wrong. So I gave my dick a rest for 2 weeks and started again about 2 weeks ago. This time when I do stretching I pull my dick just enough to feel ligament stretched. ANd for jelqing, I use MEDIUM light grip. I’ll tell you an interesting thing. Tonight toward the end of my 20 mins jelqing session, for the VERY LAST STROKE, I used HARD OK GRIP. And guess what? As soon as I squeezed it hard, my dick started getting softer. Hard OK gripping is not a good indicator.

Interesting statements.

Maybe that’s because the penis senses that it’s not good, and responds by releasing the blood and turtling in order to prevent injury.

Like a physical protective reaction. This makes sense to me.
