PE Newbie: Question concerning lubricant
Hi guys, just wanted to first thank everyone for so much helpful advice.
I’ve read the FAQs and I’m going to start to do PEs today, and I plan to go on for a long time. I don’t have my specs currently because I honestly lost my tape measurer and such, but I’ll pick one up later. I can say, though, it’s nothing impressive at all, probably on the smaller side. That’s sort of why I’m doing PE.
Anyways, I decided to follow lavdadus’s beginning instructions:
5 min hot wrap
5 min manual stretch (ten 30-second stretches)
10 min of jelq (two hundred 3-second strokes)
5 min hot wrap
50 kegels of five second holds each
Schedule: 2 days ON / 1 day OFF
I’ll probably start slow, because I don’t want to bruise, but be warned I have no PE experience.
That being said, I heard that dry jelqing can lead to bruising, or something bad with the skin; generally, I just heard that wet jelqing is better. Therefore, I need lubricant, but the only thing I could dig up currently was baby oil. I asked some of my guy friends to see if it would work, but many recommended against it, as they said it isn’t water soluble and it’ll leave a “greasy feel”.
So what I need to know is if baby oil is an acceptable lubricant for wet jelqs, or if I should run down to the store and get something like KY jelly. I’d rather not, simply because I’m rather easily embarassed with things like these, but if I have to, I will.
Also, a quick question about puberty:
I figured I had already finished puberty, but when I think about it, it doesn’t seem like I really went through much. I never had acne, never had facial hair, and my voice didn’t deepen significantly. Despite this, I figured that at my age, 18, I’m through with puberty. If I’m not, by the off chance that I (hopefully) still have some growing left, would PEs be a negative to do? I mean, obviously it wouldn’t seem healthy for a 13-14 year old male to do PEs, right? Therefore, if there’s possibility that I’m still growing (which is what my doctor said, but I don’t really trust him), should I hold off on the PEs?
