Jelqing Tips for Safety and Optimal Results

Jelqing: Use a Lubricant!

Men should rub a lubricant the erect penis with your finger when jelqing.

"Dry jelqing", a exercise technique which is doing it without a lubricant is highly discouraged.

Why not?

  • It's harsh on the penis skin (rashes)

  • You don't get an even sliding motion.

Jelqing Lubricants You Should Use

  • Olive Oil

  • Coconut Oil

  • Water-Based Lubricant (Commonly used with sex toys)

Here are three possible ideas for lubricants.

Warning: Never use soap as a lubricant.

If the soap gets inside your penis opening then it will be painful.

Jelqing Erection Levels

Generally, men want to maintain a penis erection level between 70% and 80% when jelqing.

It is highly recommended to enlarge to the 70-80% erection hardness level range.

For most men, as they do their routine, they will naturally get a harder penis erection.

That's not surprising - jelqing actually feels way good on your penis.

Maintaining a 70% erection level while jelqing is challenging because it requires you pay attention to your penis.

Also, never jelq with a 100% full erection - it actually reduces penis gains.

The Penilizer is one device that can provide more penis "work" force.

Jelq devices provide more angles that you can jelq your erection with.

This is because some may find it hard to do jelqing exercises with the simple OK-grip. This device solves that problem.

At the same time, you don't want to be jelqing your penis too lightly.

Remember to make sure that your jelq stroke is going the full distance of your penis shaft.

Forget to do this, and you're just wasting your time.

The Biggest Exercise Mistake Most Men Do

This mistake is none other than NOT doing each jelq for the full 5 seconds.

These are bad penis exercise reps.

Don't get in the bad habit / technique of doing quick jelq reps (bad) because you get impatient.

This leads to poor blood flow in the penis arteries and veins.

You have to develop good technique when you're first starting jelqing exercises.

To improve, time each jelq rep using a stopwatch.

This will allow you to commit the full 5 seconds to muscle memory.

In conclusion, jelqing is one of the "bread-and-butter" exercises for male penis enlargement size (enhancement).

Not only that, but it's probably the easiest penis exercise to get started with, and one that is highly recommended for men who have never done any penis enlargement before.

Jelqing primaily targets girth, but can be used to achieve some length penis enlargement gains due to the pulling technique of the exercise.

However there are much better options for penis length gains.
