Some basic questions from a newbie
Hello, I first stumbled upon Thunder’s Place a couple months ago and up until the new year I experimented with little consistency with some of the newbie routine. After a month I noticed no gain although it appeared that my flaccid size seemed to be meatier than usual. My lack of gaining is based on my measurement of BPEL. As a new year’s resolution I decided to stick to the newbie routine exactly and I started last week and hope to continue for some time. I understand that gains are not to be expected without consistency and patience. My questions mostly revolve around manual stretching and also the fact that my flaccid penis seems to sometimes be fatter even the day after a jelqing session.
1) Is a sporadic increase in flaccid length a sign that erect gains are soon to come? Did others notice similar results when first starting PE?
2) When doing basic manual stretching I have noticed several things. I have a much easier time gripping and maintaining a stretch when holding further down the shaft of the penis rather than right next to the head or glans. I can feel a good ligament stretch in all directions when I use this approach which I’m thinking is positive. What I’m concerned about is stretching the entire penis or I guess the tunica because I think I have a fairly low LOT. When I think about any stretch I don’t see how I can stretch the entire penis without being at the glans or head however this grip is somewhat uncomfortable not to mention hard to maintain.
I’ve checked out many posts and tutorials and know there are many stretches to explore but in terms of basic stretching to start with, should I try to find a method to grip the glans and get a “full” penis stretch? Am I right in thinking that you can only stretch parts of the penis which are below your grip point? Or should I just focuses on the ligs for the first month or two and perhaps mix in some of the other types of stretches here and there as I progress?
Thanks for the help, this seems like a really valuable forum for a lot of guys!
