Majick888's Journey to the Magic 8x6
A progress thread for me has been a long time in the making. I have been doing some sort of PE since 2005 when I stumbled onto an electronic copy of jelqing. I had no clue what I was doing and didn’t see any results from a sporadic schedule of clueless jelqing.
Fast forward a few years and I find Thundersplace! Amen to this site. Thank you Thunder for keeping true to the mission of bringing PE to the masses and an incubator for furthering PE techniques and experimentation. Here I learned about the Linear Newbie Routine and tons of stuff that helped me get to where I am today. I would say that I use BrainDrain’s methods (i.e. perfect jelq) and some of Mem’s Momentous techniques.
So I started at 6” (15.2 cm) Bone Pressed Erect Length (BPEL) x 4.5” (11.5 cm) Mid-Shaft Erect Girth (MSEG) when I first started PE’ing after gaining membership to Thunders. This was in August of 2009. I started the Linear Newbie Routine but added clamping after about 1.5 months. I had really good gains for the first 6 months. I got up to 7.3” BPEL x 5” MSEG. These gains came mainly from jelqing, very little stretching and some clamping.
I then took some breaks that lasted months to years and have been on and off from 2010 to the beginning of 2015. I did buy a bathmate x30 back around 2012 and used it off and on. I did have some girth gains from 2012 to late 2013 and that mostly came from the bathmate and jelqing.
I kicked things back into gear since the beginning of the year and I am enjoying some really good growth. I don’t measure much anymore and PE just about every day I can. I grew out of my bathmate and decided to spring for a Penomet premium after doing some research. It was a toss up between the Penomet and Bathmate Hydromax xx40 xtreme package. I know I know, I should have just built my own. Well I had the money but not much time to tinker. I had heard the Penomet was better in the department of minimum fluid build up (edema) and so far that has proved the case.
My current routine looks like this:
- Maybe a short v-stretch for about 1 minute.
- Pump with the black gator (level 3) for 2 sets of 9 minutes
- Wet jelq at 60-90% erection for 20-35 minutes, usually I throw in a hand clamp (uli). I do this when my erection starts to subside. I get back up to 90%+ and then squeeze for 10-20 seconds. Sometimes I end the squeeze with a squeeze of the glans. This is from Mem’s routine.
- Pump with grey gator (level 4) for 3-6 sets of 9 minutes
I usually read or watch netflix while I am in the pump but monitor things pretty closely. I am usually kegeling during both the jelqing and pumping. After my workouts I sometime wrap my unit with a heating pad and warm things up.
I use vaseline around my fat pad and beginning of my dick when pumping with both the Bathmate and Penomet. This is where the gator makes contact and at max pressure (pushed all the way down) this becomes irritated, for me without vaseline. I usually clean the gators and cylinder after with dish soap.
When I take multiple day breaks, which is unusual, I will try to measure. Lately I have been seeing 7.5” (19 cm) BPEL x 5.5” (13.8 cm) MSEG. What is really cool is lately my flaccid is as big as my starting erect size! I have been going strong since the beginning of the year and I am really happy with progress. My ultimate goal is what many have here, 8” BPEL x 6” MSEG. I am closing in on it and have a lot of confidence that I will make it there however long it takes.
It is my goal to post my daily routine and continue to fill in more details of my journey. Please feel free to ask any questions.
Good luck to all, it is a marathon.
