Hey there, forum!
So a while ago I tried starting PE and made my first post about it on this website, but I stopped after a week due to lack of motivation. If you’re reading this, clgp7, sorry to let you down man. Your interest was genuine and I thank you for that. A lot of things have changed in the meantime and this time I feel like I can really pull through!
First some info about myself: 23 years old, male, the Netherlands, student. Started working out at the gym 3-4 times per week about 8 weeks ago. I have never before properly done PE exercises in my life, so this is a prime. My main motivation for PE is just for a little extra confidence and better sexual experiences. I don’t have trouble with my size (I am currently dead on average with a 5.51”), but as you guys probably know best: a little extra never hurts.
The past few weeks I’ve been lurking around the forums from time to time, checking out all information before starting again and now I’m already two weeks in my routine. I started with J123’s Linear Newbie Routine at 50 jelqs and adding 10-20 every week, so I’ll be joining you in the big numbers soon enough. At the end of this week I’ll also start stretching. I’ve been reading a lot about it and I can’t wait to start! Also doing about a hundred 5-second kegels daily to get started up. Trying to do look for variation in the future.
So far PE is going good. I haven’t measured for any gains yet (will do so about once a month, so that means the first measurement will be taken in two weeks) and I have yet to see any noticeable gains or improved erection quality, but my unit is nicely thick and veiny after jelqing and morning wood is ever so present, so I’m not complaining! I’m trying to work out two issues that I’m having so far, but I think I’ll figure them out in a while. If you have any suggestions or links to posts that might help, then that would be fantastic! My issues are as following:
1. I find it really hard to hold back the skin from my scrotum while jelqing, because I have a lot of loose skin around the base of my penis (maybe a tiny case of turkey neck?) and it keeps coming forward with every stroke.
2. While jelqing at a 40-50% erection, I can only hold on to about twenty 3-second jelqs before my erection is down to 20%. Is my grip too tight or is this just a thing that will improve after a while?
If you have any comments / questions, post here below! Otherwise: thank you for taking the time to read through all this.
Edit: totally forgot to post my starting measurements and targeted measurements!
Targeted measurements: somewhere around 7 - 7.5” BPEL and 5.5” - 6” EG. Some way to go, but progress comes slow and steady!
