I guess it would be. And let me tell you, it is awesome!! Same relaxing feeling as putting a nice hot rice sock on your dick!
La petite mort
Since I started warming up properly I haven’t had one injury, I use a IRL lamp and I couldn’t recommend them enough!

Good for you that you don’t have complaints, bad that you don’t have 5minutes of intimacy ;)
I think that warming up is not only about safety/risk issue, but about effectiveness of the whole workout. It is one of the parts that make the whole thing and without warm up equation is not true anymore for me.
You have quoted me a little bit out of context, making it to look as if I would pledge for PE without preparation. I DO recommend warming up – if there is a possibility to do it - for safety and for all the benefits posted already. A better quote was
“… I do PE for almost 6 months without warming up (no time and intimacy for it) and have no complaints. Anyway, I always do mild stretching and rotations (instead of hot wraps) to drive away the tissue rigidity before beginning the work-out. …”
I’m just trying not to be fanatic about warming up. Let me explain. The direct effect of hot wraps, IR lamp, etc. Is mainly superficial. I mean it affects mainly the skin. It doesn’t really warm up the inner tissues, as the body has protective mechanisms to keep it’s inner environment unchanged. Thermal protection mechanisms are part of homeostasis, by extension.
In my opinion, the positive effect of warming up for PE is an increased blood flow to the unit (to drive away the excess heat) and a relaxation of the muscles in the CC. These effects could be obtained in other ways also. There could be an analogy with the preparation athletes do before their work out. They don’t go to sauna, but are stretching mildly their ligaments and muscles and do light muscular effort before beginning the hard work. It is called warm up, without implying a heating device.
Starting BPEL: 6.9" (Dec.1st, 2008)
Current BPEL: 8.11" NBPEL: 7.63" BPFSL: 9.09"
Current MEG : 5.6"
sorry for that quote cervixhunter, i just wanted to point out that it’s good to warm up -by heat- and that it can take only 5 minutes.
For me warm up, in case of PE is one of the components and if any of the components is missing, the whole thing doesn’t make sense. That’s my opinion, you don’t have to agree :) . Why i think so, cause i did PE without warming up for some time (in my case- i was just lazy) and yes, i wasn’t injured, but the effectiveness was lower, meaning - i could see the difference in the length of stretches, changes after jelqing etc., (comparing workout with heat application and without it) and the outlook after the training session.
I won’t disagree as I have no terms of comparison. I would like to try it myself. It’s not the lack of an extra 5 minutes, but the privacy issue.
