No sideway-stretching, does it matter much?

No sideway-stretching, does it matter much?

Hey guys,

I’m having a hard time with manual stretching. I’m uncut, and the only way I can stretch is behind the glans while the skin is over it. I tried it with my skin pulled back multiple times now, but I simply cannot do it. I tend to lose my grip quite often, mostly when stretching to the left or to the right. I’m wondering if just doing forward, downward, and upward stretches will cut it. Or even only downward and upward stretches, as these seem to work the best for me (grip-wise that is).

Also, there’s another thing which I’ve read about in another thread. Some people say that gripping behind the glans is a first-class ticket to injury lane, because of the nerve bundles/endings under the glans. This is something which is quite confusing to me, since the only way I know of doing stretches *is* gripping behind the glans. This is the only way that gives me a good grip anyway… Any explanation on this one?

Thanks!


My Stats:

THEN: BPEL: 5.39 inch || EG Base: 4.33 inch || BPFL: 3.23 inch || EG Mid: 4.1 inch

NOW: BPEL: 5.59 inch || EG Base: 4.33 inch || BPFL: 3.23 inch || EG Mid: 4.1 inch

I grip under the glans with my skin covering it and I have not injured my self. The intensity of my stretch is quite hard even, so I don’t see what the fuss is about.

As long as you listen to your dick I don’t see a problem with using this method. You might experience some discoloration, but in my case, nothing.

In my experience the side stretches are the most efficient. I don’t know if using only the above mentioned ones will cut it, but in my experience, they are far less intense then the side ways stretch.

What threads state that gripping behind the glans is a first-class ticket to injury lane? I haven’t seen one.
Be safe, listen to your dick, and adjust to suit your needs.


Wishing and hoping for the best - yup your doing it wrong.

Hmm, I’m currently trying to find that thread again but I guess it could have been just some nonsensical rambling of someone who didn’t knew what he was talking about. Forget about it for now.

I feel a much greater stress when stretching sideways, but I’m not quite sure whether it’s actually the ligaments or mainly the skin. It’s a bit of a burning sensation as far as I can remember. So far i’ve gained about 1/5” in BPEL. I hope it was because of the jelqing, but the most of the time, newbie gains seem to be coming from doing stretches.

I agree with Thatcat that sideways stretches are maybe the most useful. Have you tried using a towel to aid your grip, D B?

I think you are losing the grip because:

1. you have an improper technique;
2. you are using too much force.

Gripping the skin or not is your choice: if a bit more skin is not a big issue for you, and gripping the skin is easier, go that way.

I think the thread you are speaking of says that gripping the glans (so pushing too much pressure on the glans) is dangerous, not gripping under the glans.

Is the burning sensation above or below the skin?

Grab some extra skin anywhere on your body and stretch it. If it’s not a burning sensation, then you are getting the sensation from the ligs.

Haven’t tried that yet. I reckon you don’t mean something like a huge-ass bathing towel, right? More like something small-ish to use as a wrap? I’m not quite sure how I should picture this…

Well, I guess it’s the improper technique then, because I’m not using a lot of force at all, and yet it manages to slip on me! ;) The downward and upward grip seem to be the most stable of them all. I guess that I’ve got to experiment with sideways gripping some more. The annoying thing is that it went (almost) perfectly fine in the beginning, but started to get troubles in the third week or so.

Btw: I grab using an overhand-OK grip most of the time.

Actually, even more skin IS a big issue for me, because I can already stretch my foreskin about one inch past the glans. It’s quite the uglyness when flaccid. Even erect, the skin does not retract behind my glans, not fully anyway. I have no choice though, because I’m not able to stretch with a retracted foreskin. It gives a feeling of discomfort, which is so bad, that I’m having a hard time with only doing one stretch. Also, the grip is much worse when the skin is retracted, too.

…Guess I’m hopeless! ;)

I think you might be right about that. Gripping the glans itself is indeed not a very wise thing to do.

It seems to be below the skin, because even when I pull some skin back towards the base when holding the stretch, the sensation remains. Guess that’s worth a “yay!”. :D

The sideways stretching must be the most effective stretch then, since that same feeling isn’t anywhere near as pronounced while doing the typical forward/down/upward stretches.

It seem that you have phymosis, DB; how about sexual intercourse?

I heard latex gloves give great grip during stretches.

When I stretch my penis to the right, I get this awesome burning/stretching sensation at the base that I don’t get in any of the other directions. I feel like it’s “evening” out my penis, if that makes sense. That being said, don’t give up on the side stretches!


Started 4/20/08 BPEL 7.0 EG 5.5

Current 9/08 7 3/8 BPEL X 5.75 MSEG

Aiming for a more realistic goal - 8 NBPEL 6.5 MSEG

I am uncut and use latex gloves for stretching, it is brilliant. Buy a box from your local chemist and you are set for ages, I pull my foreskin back and grip behind the glans and it is both comfortable and effective.

Thanks everyone, I will look into the latex gloves later this week! :) Oh, and Marinera: I do not have Phymosis, I can retract my foreskin perfectly fine. Stretching with the foreskin retracted is just really hard and uncomfortable for me right now.

That’s good, D B :) . So, stand with what me and others uncuts said, I can’t add more.

I tried stretching with the foreskin pulled back again and today I’ve succes! I retained the grip behind the glans in all directions! :D But… I didn’t feel much of a stretch while doing it. Certainly not as much as with the foreskin over the glans. Should it really be a prominent feeling? It felt kind of vague, a bit nauseating (only a tiny bit!). The nauseating feeling could also have something to do with the amount of force I must apply to grip in order to hold it properly, but I’m not sure, since the feeling does radiate out from my fat pad (and thus the ligs?). Also, it seems that the grip is mainly sticking behind the backside of the glans and not really the front, so I think it slips a bit over the front of the glans. I reckon this might be a risk factor for injury if you’re exerting pressure while holding this grip?

Don’t grip too tight. I think you are on the right pathway.

Just go to learn the proper technique, for now; in the beginning, you don’t need too much force to grow, it’s actually counter-productive.

PE is friend of tenacious people!

Yeah, I know. I’m taking the jelqing slow and easy as wel. Some people are squeezing the hell out of their dicks, but it’s totally unnessicary. When jelqing, I’m almost flaccid at the beginning, and not more than 30% erect while doing them. I use a very modest grip, only slightly tighter than a masturbating grip. As long as the glans fills with blood and swells, I’m a happy man! :)

…But having a 7*5.5 dick will make me even happier! :D

Anyway, back on-topic: I grip quite tightly indeed, because otherwise, I lose the grip. I noticed 5 purple spots on the inside of my foreskin (visible when retracted) so I guess I used too much gripping force. Got to experiment a bit with that, maybe pump a bit of blood in the glans first so it’s more swollen. I’m not totally convinced though that this is working better for me than stretching with the foreskin over the glans, it really does seem to give a better pull, hmm…

Ahh well, I already gained 1/5” BPEL, so as long as the gain doesn’t disappear, I know that I’m not underworking it either! ;)
