My first day jelqing, red spots.
I’ve re-posted this without the pictures so it doesn’t get moved to the picture section. It’s a newbie question so I’m hoping for some newbie help.
Yesterday I did my first round of the newbie routine. I followed it as exactly as I could.
I ended up with small reddish, purplish spots, located mostly on the top, mid to upper shaft. With a few red spots on the under side of the shaft.
Five minute warm up: The water from my bathroom sink gets hot enough for it to be uncomfortable to keep your hands under it. The warm rap description says that the cloth should be as hot as it can be without causing pain or burning. I figured that this would be hot enough since it causes a little bit of pain to my hands. Other than the initial temperature shock when I first applied the cloth, there was no pain throughout the warm up. I would call the temperature quite warm. I massaged through the cloth.
Five minutes of stretches: I chose the “downward stretch”. I didn’t pull too hard, I did experience a little bit of pain where my fingers were creating the “okay grip”. I didn’t use any lube for this as I thought it might make it hard to keep a grip while stretching. I don’t believe I was pulling very hard, as my heart isn’t really in this exercise because I think that it’s mostly for length.
Ten minutes of jelqing. I chose to do the underhand wet jelq, pulling down. I experienced no pain during this. My erection levels went perhaps too high at times, reaching maybe 80%, give or take. Though I’m not quite sure if I’m a good judge of erection level percentages. I tried to increase my grip as I reached the glans, as the jelqing video suggested. I also tried to take it easy the first couple of minutes but I don’t really remember how long I maintained “taking it easy”.
Five minute hot wrap: Same as before.
50 kegels, five seconds each: I’ve been doing kegels for a while so there’s nothing significant to report here.
I’m going to try and attach some pictures, the first two are from last night, the second two are from today. There’s really not any noticeable difference in the pictures as far as I can tell. Though they look sort of more purple and perhaps slightly larger today.
I’ve read a little bit about these red spots, I assume that they are from jelqing. Any explanation, opinions, or whatever regarding them would be appreciated. Most importantly; should I not jelq today? If not, how long should I wait?
Thanks for any replies.
