Only getting bpel change
I’m just getting started in my quest for a few extra inches (first to my penis, then to my self esteem by proxy!) - and am in the process of putting together a routine that works comfortably for me and my schedule.
I’ve been jelqing fairly regularly for maybe 2 months, 3-4x a week, usually for 20-30 minutes.
I haven’t been sure if I’ve been doing it right, because it seems no matter how hard I squeeze or pull, I’m not getting the ‘red dots’ or feeling that I ‘worked out’ my penis like I’ve heard described here. It becomes swollen, like an edema temporarily, as if it were in a pump, which of course fades away after a bit. But that’s about it. No other soreness or skin discolorations really.
So I guess that’s one concern is that, if I’m NOT getting some of these reactions, does that mean I’m not doing something strong enough? Do I need to be more erect? I try to do it at about half mast, but I mean it’s not exactly an exact science.
But my main question is - I DID notice what appears to be some gains, which I’m VERY excited about!
Problem is, they only seem to exist BPEL. So, while before when I pushed that ruler down hard and pulled as hard as I could, I could barely get to 6”, and now I’m pushing 6.5”, it feels GREAT.. But when I’m just fully erect, there’s no change at all. Whether BP or not, unless I press the ruler to the bone and actively pull and stretch it out, that extra .5” or so doesn’t exist.
My question is, for those who have experienced permanent real gains, is this the ‘first step’? Does it mean that erect gains without traction are coming next? Are there others who have experienced gains only when stretching it out and not when you just get hard?
It’s an ego boost seeing me push past that 6” mark, but doesn’t do me much good if it doesn’t have any functional changes.
Any shared experience or advice would be appreciated!
