JAI stretch - a useful misunderstanding
I wrote a comment to the JAI stretch thread, but since nobody seems to have read it, I repost it here with some additional observations:
“Question / observation from a soon to be 3-month newbie:
I didn’t remember the JAI-video correctly, and misunderstood the part shown placing the forefinger and middlefinger by the base (see the video) - also I didn’t have time to read and remember, so when I first tried them out I got them all wrong. But it seems to be not an entirely bad misunderstanding, here’s what I did:
I place forefinger and middlefinger in a V-sign over the base with my left hand (switch hands as you want) and with the right hand pull up a little skin along the shaft. Then I press down around the base and stretch my unit with a OK-grip just under the glans. Now what then happens (to me at least) is that I feel tissue connected to my shaft and connected to my pubic area wanting to “lift” the fingers on my left hand - I take it that these are the ligs? The harder the pull, the harder I need to press against my base to keep them down. Now if I don’t do the V-sign against my base, I can see the tissue “lift” the skin, and if I then do the V-sign again I feel that the tissue is not part of the shaft itself, since it connects off to the side. I kind have to readjust the V-sign abit to get this exercise right, to feel that I am keeping the tissue taut. If I don’t pull up a little extra skin on my shaft before locking down the V-sign, stretching seems to target the skin between the glans and shaft, which is not comfortable since I am circumsized.
Since I misunderstood the entire scheme I’ve done static stretches in this fashion on and off for 2 weeks now, and it seems to me now that if I stretch without the V-sign, I can feel the shaft itself being pulled from the base - no ligs (?) involved (this is slightly downwards) and I can then strecth my unit approx 1/4 inch longer than when I hold the V-sign against the base and keep the ligs taut. Also it feel as if I’m slowly pulling my dick out of the pelvic bone, so to speak.
My understanding - correct me here - is that by keeping the V-sign pressure to the sides of the base (or just at the top of the shaft for stretching down, or at either side for stretchin sideways) I isolate the ligs (this tissue must be the ligs?). And this would then be beneficial, since one could more easily work first the ligs, then the shaft itself?
Although I’ve only done this a short time (and consider replacing it with JAI or combine it with the JAI) I still get the impression that I can just kind of pull my flaccid unit out an inch or so and it kind of stays in that elongated state at least for a while (no real scientific observations done). So flaccid lenght seems to be improved a little, and as for the actual stretching it simply feels more efficient.
Comments gratefully accepted.
Since I wrote this I have not been very good with PE due to privacy problems, but have done JAI (with and without warmup) and the odd jelg/squeeze session.
I have however noticed that my flaccid length has increased since I started doing this V-sign thing, and now I have modified the JAI stretch to include V-signs. Now that I seem to have stretched the sides a bit I’m working on the tissues closer to the top and on the top of where the shaft meets the pelvis. The difficulty seems to be to find the balance between stretching the skin and the tissue beneath. And at least it feels useful, although I haven’t been doing this long enough to have any clear indications other than that when I go to the bathroom, my flaccid seems ½’+ or so longer.
NOW from those of you with greater understanding for the biology involved, what exactly am I doing? :)
- starting at 14,5 cm ebpl (although I have distinct memories of 15+ in younger years)
- currently at ~16 ebpl
- target was 17,5 (7”) ebpl, currently under reconsideration
