The infamous dorsal nerves

The infamous dorsal nerves

Ok, I’ve been doing a lot of research, and I’m only confused. There are so many different ways to view this.

Basically I have had no problems with numbness, but I’m concerned with the idea of damaging the dorsal nerve.

Right now my jelqs are overhanded; pulling the mostly flaccid shaft downward, and then upward jelqs that are not over handed.

I guess my question is this; would it be beneficial to jelq with my hands pressing on the sides of the penis? This would aid in avoiding the nerves perhaps?

Starter7777,

I also shared your concern initially. The normal description of the proper grip is to make the “OK” sign with the thumb and forefinger and then grip your shaft accordingly. I have, over time, evolved to a grip I have seen described on several posts as the “C”, or possibly “U” grip, wherein you don’t really clamp down on the entire circumference of the shaft, but put pressure primarily on the sides, thereby working the tunica, without (heavily) impacting the dorsal nerve or the CS on the lower side of the shaft. Some power jelqing devices use rollers that work in similar ways.

This had several immediate effects. I noticed that I no longer developed red spots on the glans,even after long heavy sessions and there seemed to be a lot less penile skin trauma, allowing me to jelq longer and more often. The girth gain progress has been at least equal to, and probably better than when I used the “OK” grip, probably because I now jelq more effectively without triggering negative PIs.

The down side is that it is much, much harder on the hands and forearms to work the tunica as hard without encircling your shaft completely, but you get used to it quickly and that problem seemed to dissipate in a week or so.

In reality I now still close my grip in a complete circle, as it is almost an unnatural position to not close, I just do not clamp onto the dorsal or CS surfaces. Periodically I will intentionally clamp onto the CS in conjunction with strong kegels to work the glans, but I can now keep the amount of “pump” in the glans to any desired level while maintaining very high pressure on the tunica.

Watch and listen to your unit and your body, watch the PIs, you’ll find the “sweet spot” that works for you and the gains will come.

Which devices are you speaking about. I’ve only seen two power jelqs (one homemade, and the other a commercial product), and both makers talk about their devices being use with the pressure on the dorsal nerve.

Thanks for the advice bro. I’ll look into this C grip.

I see this issue in this way:

If something doesn’t feel right, at the time you do it, desist from doing that specific thing. Listen to your cock all the time. If you have finished a session and have pain or discomfort, you haven’t been listening along the way.

It is difficult to damage the dorsal nerve clusters in sensible jelking, but don’t take that as permission to do anything you want. Hands are best for jelking. Your hand is much more sensitive than a roller or other device (flesh to flesh contact), I think. But that is just me.

Big Amen to that!

I think we are referring to the same ones. Didn’t care for either.

Sensible jelqing is the key as you mention. Just remember there are many small nerve branches off of the dorsal nerves that run around the penis all up and down its length. Smaller nerves are more susceptible to injury than larger nerves. Injury to any of these nerves could cause a small area of numbness on the shaft or head (temporary, probably no more than a month or two because of repair or sprouting from neighboring nerves). This means there really is no safe area of the penis without nerves that could be damaged.

By the way, I mentioned dorsal nerves. There are actually two running at 10 and 2 o’clock on the dorsum of the penis, not one at 12 o’clock as is generally assumed.

Jelq with care.

I say it is reasonable to assume that with moderate jelqing strength, a man will be totally fine in not damaging the nerves. I don’t jelq very hard; just on occasion do I put a some good pressure to get a good expansion.

I suppose we should all be careful and just take the risk to acquire our desired phallic formats.

I think you’re right. Unless you run you penis through a clothes wringer, you’re chances of permanently boxing a large dorsal nerve by sensible jelqing are low. Now if you’re wife or girlfriends name is Lorena who wants to bob(bit) your penis, well…that’s a different story all together.

Jelq ligtly and slow.
