My sad story, my PE gains, regains and, I hope, maybe a happy ending in the future
Hi, this is my intro and my reasons for pursuing PE.
In my 48+ years, I have never had any problems with the length of my penis (my Corvette ownership notwithstanding) because, as I was frequently told by women, I was slightly more “girthy” than average.
But it became clear this summer that my marriage was in trouble and that my wife was not satisfied with our love life. After going around and around she finally admitted that the problem she had with our sex was, as she said, “something nobody can do anything about.” Namely, the size of my penis was the issue. She orgasms 1-3 times every time we have sex but, like most modern women, I am not the only man she has been with and apparently, a previous husband had set the penis bar several inches higher than I could clear.
Then, a few weeks later, it all hit the fan when I found out that my wife online seeking a sex-partner, a friend with benefits. In her form of logic, she saw this as possibly helping save the marriage because she could get some occasion sex from somebody on the side. In her mind, she would be sexually satisfied and we could stay together as our relationship was otherwise very good. I was utterly crushed, totally devastated and completely demoralized. It’s one thing to know you’ll never be a porn star, but it is entirely different to hear the woman you love tell you that your penis is too small for her.
I measured myself and found out that my (previously) 6” penis was now under 5”…I had lost well over an inch in length. This “shrinking” happened slowly over many years and while there are many reasons for why this happened, none of them really matter in the final analysis.
So I resolved to work on making my penis larger while my wife and I resolved to make our marriage work again.
I’ve been doing PE since the Beginning of August of this year after reading as much as I could on the subject for a few weeks.
I bought an extender on ebay as well as a vacuum pump and the elastic band stretcher with the vacuum cup that secures over the head of your penis (they don’t last too long—-the cups, not the penis)
I’ve found the extender to be less than useful and use it a lot less than before. The majority of my work is Jelqing, stretching and pumping and other manual exercises.
Though I probably did overdo it a bit from time to time in the beginning I am now doing more advanced routines and seem to have not only regained lost length but added some as well.
I have also lost 25 pounds of the 45 pounds I put on after I quit smoking but my weight and body fat percentage has only gone down slightly since I started PE so my the fatpad on my pubic arch still measures the same 3/8” as my initial measurement when I started. As I lose my remaining fat (I am engaged in a fairly challenging workout program) I expect to gain some useful “visible” length also.
When I started PE on 08/04/2011 my stats were as follows:
This was what had become of my previously 6” long, “girthy” penis.
Today, 105 days later, my stats are as follows:
My flaccid size has also gone from mini-mushroom to WOW. Doesn’t matter that much but the wife has commented on it and noticed that she can see my size increase while I’m wearing pants.
I have notice, however, that erection quality can mean a difference of up to 1” in the erect size which seen surprising to me. I also have more length if I do stretching or jelqing before measuring my erect penis than if I just measuring without stretching or jelqing. This tells me I have not made these gains permanent yet.
I feel I have made good gains/regains. I expect to hit a plateau soon but I’m in this for the long haul so I can plan and work around that.
I will be 49 years old in February and my personal mantra has become “I’m going to give myself an 8” penis for my 50th birthday.
The picture I enclosed is my “stick” that I use to measure my progress. I’ll have it framed when I pass my goals. The arrow at the thick black line at the base on the left of the pictures marks where the top of the fat pad is and the the base of the stick is pressed hard against the pubic bone before measuring.
