Klayton, I both agree and disagree with you. Agree in the sense that what you said in your post truly does not work for me. And some of them I wont even try. But on the other hand it works for other guys good (Okish6er, jqsderrida among others).
Just my 2 cents.
I think Okish6er and Monsieur Derrida define “erect” differently to how I intended it; as hobby pointed out a degree of plumpness is required for most “bloodwork”, but a rock hard erection (when, for example, jelqing) makes no sense in terms of safety or common sense biology; the blood can’t expand the tunica in any way other than tearing it.
The semantic confusion (I didn’t realise existed) might be the difference between a relatively safe and effective exercise (the plumpness hobby spoke of in relation to erect bends, and how I think Dino does them as well) and penile-suicidal overzealousness. Your dick can break, take care of it.
Jelq my boy, jelq like the wind.
