Just started my journey recently and looking for advice.
Before I ask some questions, here’s a little info about me:
I’ve known about this site for over a year, but never decided to take the plunge because I thought I’d do something wrong and permanently break my penis. I have always been self conscious about the size of my penis (probably due to all the porn I watch), so I’ve avoided sex all together. In other words, I am a 21 year old virgin. I’ve done some research on the science behind PE, but there isn’t much information that isn’t anecdotal. It wasn’t until I saw a post that said to think about the penis as a muscle you’d work out in the gym and it all made sense - create tears in the muscle and once it heals, it will be stronger than before. The last thing I needed was motivation. How many people have done this and succeeded? Then I saw that thread with comparison pictures and that was enough to get me going. I’ve watched some of the beginner videos and looked at some of the routines. My penis is 4 inches in length (EL) and 4.8 inches in girth. Not by any means a micro-penis, but I would like to be 6 inches (EL) in length or bigger, so I can feel a little more average; girth is kind of a meh to me because I think that 4.8” is average or slightly above (can’t remember). I’m doing the newbie routine and started Nov 2 and haven’t missed a day yet (2 on, 1 off). I know like building any muscle, it takes time. You have to gradually increase the resistance to get bigger muscles and not plateau. So I am prepared and patient to get to where I want to be.
So here’s my questions:
When you first start working out, for the first 3 months or so you get “noob gains”. Being able to increase the weight faster than if you have lifted weights for year. Are there noob gains in PE? When do they stop? On day 7 I measured just out of excitement and noticed I gained 0.1” in length (BP), but that could just be due to pressing the string I use to measure farther into the skin (is there a name for area of skin the penis protrudes from?)
I am uncircumcised. So for the first 4 sessions, I stretched without pulling the foreskin back. Then a few days ago, I saw a post saying you should pull the foreskin back when stretching and that’s what I did in today’s session. Any tips for keeping the foreskin from sliding back over the head? Do you use both hands?
I am doing the newbie routine and it says I should do it for 6 weeks and gradually increase stretching and jelq times. Should I follow this in terms of doing it for 6 weeks? Or is a month ok? I’ve been gradually increasing stretching times and for jelqing, I just do it for 1 additional minute then I did the previous session. Like today, I jelqed for 16 minutes. Is this ok? Or should I slow down on the jelqs?
After finishing the newbie routine, is there any routine that you would recommend? Say an intermediate routine? Cause I know in weight lifting routines progress in terms of skill level: noob, intermediate, advanced, etc.
How do you determine how erect you are? I’ve seen a lot of people say you should do this at 40% and this at 60% erect, but I only really know how it feels to be 100% erect. How do you gauge this?
Is there anything wrong with edging? It seems to me like it would help a little as long as I don’t cum.
Any general tips you would give to a noob like me? It seems like I would be to attain my goals in about 2-3 years depending on how my penis responds, so I will be here for awhile.
That’s all I can think of for know, so thanks to everyone that read this. All of my stats are on my profile. If I can come up with another question, I will ask in the thread.
