Jelqing is the most well-known of Penis Enlargement Exercises, and reportedly one of the oldest as it was allegedly first used over 5,000 years ago. The purpose of jelqing is to increase the amount of blood entering the corpora cavernosa, or the spongy tissue that the penis is composed of. By increasing the blood flow to the penis, you can not only increase its length and girth, you can also have firmer and stronger erections.
Before you start jelqing, or any penis exercise, first measure the length and girth of your penis in order to gauge the success of your workout. The correct way to measure the length of your penis is to place a ruler at the base of your erect penis and take your measurement to the nearest quarter-inch. To measure girth, take a piece of string and wrap it around the thickest part of your penis; mark the place where the string touches itself and then measure using a ruler.
Just like any exercise, you should start with a warm-up to prevent injury to your penis. Warm up by massaging your penis until it is semi-erect, then either wrap it in a washcloth soaked in warm water for three minutes or stroke and massage it in a warm bath. Always jelq when you’re semi-erect in order to prevent injury; never jelq when you’re erect.
To jelq, first put some water-based lubricant (such as baby oil) on your palms. Circle your penis with your left thumb and forefinger and with your palm facing you. Slide your fingers toward the head but do not go over. Repeat the motion using your other hand. You should be able to create a continuous milking motion. Start out by doing 25 per session per day for the first week, then add 25 per week until you reach 200 repetitions.
