I actually purchased my powerjelq in October 2001 but really didn’t start using it regularly until January 2002. Like you, at the beginning I couldn’t seem to get the hang of using it and put it aside. But after a more concerted effort and with some experimentation, I grew to appreciate the different kind of feeling and intensity that I can get from it.
There is a learning curve to the powerjelq. I think initially some guys may actually be squeezing too hard with it and inhibit their erections. It’s better to begin with a “lighter” squeeze/touch and increase the pressure slightly as your erection gets stronger. I addressed my powerjelq use in more detail in a previous post. You can see it at:
I still do regular dryjelqing, since it’s convenient at work or any time of the day when I have some privacy and a free moment. But I can get a much faster and more intense workout with the powerjelq when I’m at home. Read my post above and give the PJ another try.
Maybe I would attribute about 50% of my girth gains to the PJ, but again it’s hard to say for sure since I use a variety of techniques and combinations. But I am sure that it does help tremendously.I don’t think there is one “best” technique. I think all of the PE techniques out there are all valid and can result in individual gains. I do think keeping “variety” is a key factor in fooling my dick to grow.
Best to you.
