A Question on Jelqing "Pressure"
OK here’s the deal. I am trying to ‘nail down’ jelqing a little better, and ‘how hard to squeeze’ or ‘clamp down’ with my hand before moving it up the shaft to jelq. I had originally tried to describe it by ‘feel’ or ‘feeling’ but I think that is an inadequate way of looking at it now. These are subjective terms, and what feels like ‘hard pressure’ or ‘medium pressure’ to you might mean something totally different to me, and something totally different from that to a third person. So I have opted to describe it more in ‘dimensional terms’ and hope that will be more meaningful or useful.
I originally started the newbie routine, heating and stretching and jelqing. Reading about the microtears and such convinced me that you needed to do a little damage to the tissues I guess, and I think I was pulling too hard on my stretches or jelqing too hard. At about 50% erect, I am still pretty much at my maximum girth, it just isn’t as hard as at 100%. At 4½” girth, that puts me at about 1½” diameter. Now, here’s what I think I was doing. Thinking that I had to really ‘crush things good’ to get growth, that’s what I did! So with 1½” diameter, I was forming my grip down to more like a 1” diameter circle, and jelqing up that way. I was gonna make me some microtears! Well, this is way too much! A full one-third or almost one-half of the original diameter!
After about a week and a half of this, my penis said: “okay… well then screw you too, dude” and went numb on me. About three or four days before this, I did notice that it felt a little ‘less sensitive’ but at the time, I figured it was just getting desensitized or accustomed to this new stuff. It’s an easy mistake that anyone could make.
So I’m wondering if there is some better way to describe it, so people don’t make dumb mistakes (including me). I know it’s hard to describe these things sometimes, so that the other person ‘gets it’ what you are trying to convey to them accurately. It’s really neat to hear when someone describes that they have ‘caught on’ and now they are sure that they are doing it perfectly. I’m just trying to get there, too. I’ve had really helpful discussions with my mentor and it has been very revealing to me, I was squeezing down too hard. He described it as feeling a lot like masturbation almost, and you have to be very patient and ‘clinical’ about it or you will blow a load, so this was a big eye-opener for me. It’s a much more delicate process than I thought. That helped a lot, so now I’m thinking just clamp down the diameter of my circle to just a little less than it’s size, like one-eighth or one-sixteenth of an inch smaller than the penis diameter, and doing it that way. Does anyone out there getting good results have any little tidbits of wisdom to describe good jelqing?
