Need width? Try this....
I’m not claiming to have “discovered” this (in fact, I recall having read about it long ago), but I thought I’d finally give it a shot. The day before yesterday, I was in a dollar store and saw an old-fashioned rolling pin and I thought, “Let’s try it.”
It’s wooden, and the roller is about 1.5” diameter. It has small handles attached to the ends; however, they don’t appear to be too sturdy, so I forego using them.
I do my warmup, my stretching, my jelqing, some more stretching & jelqing - then I go to the roller.
1) Place your unit against a flat, solid surface - preferably the entire length of your willy.
2) Begin rolling at the base, outwards. Apply sufficient pressure and go slowly.
3) Do NOT roll over your glans (I actually stop about 1/2” before the lower-most portion of my glans).
4) Repeat accordingly; however, when starting out proceed slowly - almost like a newbie. This movement is very intense.
Tip: Try to find a surface that is a good height for you, while standing; if your legs are too bent, your thighs will quickly fatigue, cramp up, etc. Also, if you try to do this movement sitting by placing a thick book or board across your lap, it won’t have the stability required to properly execute this movement. I opt for my office desk - near one of the corners. I simply spread my legs out wide, with my knees locked, until I’m at the right height.
Be careful that you choose a smooth surface that is level and without any heavy textured surface - or it could hurt like hell. Also, the wooden pin does impart a degree of skin discomfort, so be careful (and watch out for your glans!). I don’t use lube, but I did try talcum which seemed to ease the discomfort somewhat. You also want your unit to be perfectly flat (your CS evenly on the surface), and straight.
But I have to say, doing these rollers after my regular workout was incredibly intense. I felt a totally different type of tension than I feel from jelqs (the way I do jelqs - squeezing in at the sides - directs the tension downwards, into the CS; the rolling pin - compressing downwards - directs the tension laterally into the CC, as well as forward into the glans). My prick was noticeably wider after each of my first 2 sessions, and terribly red and vascular.
Just be careful & start out very slowly with these. I would definitely not go more frequently than 1-on 1-off to begin with. And don’t try doing some marathon session until you’re used to this specific movement.
I believe the good ol’ rolling pin has a lot of PE potential. However, as I am primarily striving after length I’m not going to continue with these. I don’t want to have to stretch against an even thicker & stronger tunica, until I’m much closer to my EL goals. But after I cement my length goal, I’m going to hit a serious girth routine (doing lots of rollers) until I can cement a “cold” 6.5” EG (midshaft) - consistently.
But I put this out there for any of the brethren who are really seeking width. And I am curious if you get any length gains out of these also.
