Callipygian - Newbie, but not for long
First, I have to say thanks to Thunder and everyone else who created, sustains, and has furthered this forum.
It’s an impressive and massive place, something I hope to become as well.
I will post progress in this thread and ask questions with the hope veterans will visit me and impart wisdom.
Let’s get started! I’m NBPEL 5.625”x5”. I would love to be NBPEL 8”x6”.
I first came to Thunders on May 2 and quickly started reading. I began the Linear Newbie Routine on Saturday, May 9, and am doing 2 days on, 1 off. This entails a rice sock 5 minute warm up, 30 jelqs, stimulation to erection at end, and then the use of the still warm rice sock at the end. I kegel throughout the day about as much as I remember too. I am also starting foreskin restoration manually.
I plan to add 15 more jelqs every week, but will first and foremost obey PIs.
After the first week I will add five 30 second stretches up, down, left, right, and circular. Every month thereafter I will add another set of stretches.
I’ve come to these decisions after a lot of searching around the forum. It’s hard to name exactly everything I have read, but am starting to realize that one of the most helpful things is looking into other people’s progress reports.
I just don’t know which ones have the best information! I plan on sticking to the Linear Routine unless convinced otherwise.
How long without gains should I wait before changing routines once that occurs?
Should I start hanging at that point or would it indicate needing rest?
I guess I’m wondering if jelqing has an upper limit and if there is a time people transition to hanging or other routines.
I also have some comments and questions regarding the forum and PE in general.
I’m noticing a lot of scientific theories and routines from about 10 years ago. Most new stuff I come across doesn’t involve such heavy analysis.
I am wondering if this is just because most of the tissue composition threads were a bunch of bs. I know from the common questions thread that things like LOT theory should be ignored, but are there any other hard and fast rules that veterans take for granted and that I may not know about my anatomy?
I also have a question about the Linear Newbie Routine. It’s relatively old, seems solid, but the main contributors and practitioners are both inactive and don’t have progress posted.
Do people have success with the routine? Moreover, do people make significant gains with just a stretch and jelq routine? Are there any prolific jelqing veterans’ progress reports I should look into?
I’ve also seen some mention of TDP lamps, ideal heat temperatures for PE, and the sentiment that the most underestimated aspect of PE is heating!
Does anyone have key pointers on heat? I use a rice sock, but I’m not sure it’s giving me the most uniform heating.
Another thing I’ve wondered about is the extended use of silicon wraps or any kind of static stretch that keeps the penis elongated.
I’ve seen a few old discussions on it, but is there a verdict on its use in healing and whether keeping the penis stretched encourages length growth?
I have seen there are different theories on this. One being that it’s all stimulation of new tissue growth, and the other that it is healing of tears, so I’m lost with how my penis really works.
Additionally, I am attempting Foreskin Restoration as well. Will these activities work well together or will my skin not be able to handle jelqs and manual skin tugging?
Finally, the craziest question of all: Does underwear matter? I am partial to boxer briefs, but if something else will give me a millimeter, I’ll wear those instead!
Thanks for reading as I try and set myself up for success.
There is a lot of information in these forums, and I don’t know what to ignore and what to emulate.
Any guidance you can offer will be appreciated.
