Quickly: What is Jelqing Again?

Jelqing is a natural penis enlargement exercise.

A single jelq stroke (a.k.a. repetition) is done by choking on the base of your semi-erect penis with your index finger and thumb, and then sliding it outwards towards the penis glans (tip).

Most guys use a water-based lubricant while jelqing and we here at PhalloGauge highly recommend this as well.

Jelqing sessions typically consist of around 20 minutes with 5-second long strokes.




Why would I want to do Jelqing?

Two words.

Increase Girth.

According to Cosmopolitan, they found that 9 in 10 women asked what their ideal penis size was and the average girth they found was 6 inches.

The average girth is 5 inches.

That's mean's there's so much room for improvement to be "above average" and in the preferred zone of women.

However, when guys hear that, they try to learn it as fast as possible and start doing it with no rhyme or reason.

Believe it or not, there is a proper technique to jelqing.

So it's absolutely crucial that you do it properly so that you don't waste countless hours with zero results to show for it.

First, you must understand the anatomy of the penis.

The Corpora Cavernosa - the Foundation for all Girth

Quite frankly, you don't need to understand every single part of the penis.

If there's one part of the penis that you must learn about it is the Corpora Cavernosa.

So what is it?

It's the two, thick spongy tubes running parallel to each other down the shaft of the penis.

a cross section of a penis showing the corpora cavernosa.

They are what contain most of the blood during an erection.

Since they are spongy, they have cells that hold blood.

When you're aroused, nitric oxide is released from the body to trigger an increase in blood flow to the penis by widening the arteries that lead to the penis (vasodilation).

When the corpora cavernosa expands, it press against the veins to prevent blood from escaping.

This is how your body maintains an erection.

The veins are what deliver the blood away from the body and are located near the surface of the penis.

These are the same veins that are clearly visible when you at an erection with the naked eye.

So if you can master manipulating blood to the copora cavernosa via jelqing - you will be well on your way to improve your jelqing for girth.

Jelqing for Girth - What You Absolutely Need to Make Sure You're Doing.

Try to maximize the time at the start of the stroke.

This one seems like a random tip, but there's a logical reason to do this.

Imagine what were to happen if you were to just squeeze the base of your penis - without sliding it up.

The blood inside would increase in pressure and expand.

Kind of like if you squeezed one end of a water ballon, the other end would bulge out.

squeezing a balloon to show how balloon deforms, like in jelqing.

This expansion would cause the surrouding tissues - in this case, the majority of the penis shaft - to expand outwards as well!

And that's exactly what we want!

Remember, we're straining the tissues of the copora cavernosa so that it adapts to the expansive training to achieve our desired result:

More penis girth.

Basically, if you completely understand what I just said, you'll significantly increase your chances of getting more results from every single jelqing session.

That's because you'll try to adjust your jelqing so that it satisfies this "expansion" principle.

Just keep it in mind at the beginning of each stroke and try to copy it.

Slow, steady jelqing strokes.

So now you gave your penis a good, long squeeze before starting.

Now, you have to make sure that the actual stroke is quality.

To do this, just make sure that the speed and duration of the stroke is constant and slow.

Really try to get an expansive tension going on every section of your penis from start to finish.

The idea is to let the blood flow pressure work for you.

Again, remember not to jelq your penis glans (mushroom tip).

That part of the penis does not contain any part of the corpora cavernosa, so it's pointless to jelq there.

Thus, the glans is a good marker to help you know where to end your jelq stroke.

Do these two tips above and you'll defnitely optimize your jelqing for girth.

The Biggest Mistakes Guys Make When Jelqing.

They do each jelq stroke TOO fast.

For the majority of your jelqing you do not want to do all your jelq strokes fast.

However, there is a variation on jelqing called machine gun jelqing that is best used once in a while.

Machine gun jelqing successive strokes.

But generally, jelqing is meant to be a slow exercise.

Think quality first, then quantity.

We highly recommend timing each stroke with your stopwatch on your smartphone so that you can get a feel for how long it should be.

Once you have the muscle memory down for this timing, then proceed to copy that motion for the rest of your strokes.

It doesn't hurt to use the timer in for the first few strokes in each session just to be safe.

Their jelqing session isn't long enough.

Guys think that you do jelqing a few times and you'll be good.

That couldn't be farther from the truth.

The general consensus in the penis enlargement community is:

A jelqing session should last for 20 minutes.

It's like regular fitness training - you should run for 30 minutes, not just 10.

Any fitness trainer will tell you that.

In that case, you're training your heart, and the heart needs that total time to do its cardiovascular workout.

It needs time to ramp up and sufficient time after that start-up period to work hard and do the training.

It's the same with your erection.

Chances are you're going to need a few minutes to really ramp up to the optimal erection level and only after you do can you get the optimal training from each jelq stroke.

The erection level is totally wrong.

More often than not, the erection level is too low.

The problem is that guys will hear about other guys who have reported that their penis has actually decreased in size over time from jelqing when using a full, 100% hardness erection.

Regardless, this is the rule that you should follow:

Aim for a 90% erection level when jelqing.

You don't want to be too flaccid such that your copora cavernosa is not filled enought to strain and train those spongy tissues.

But you also don't want a 100% hardness erection such that the pressure is too much for too long (due to the added pressure from jelqing).


Increasing the length can be worth the time and effort, but there is another approach to improvement that men can explore: increasing the girth.

In order to increase the thickness of the penis, suitable exercises must be carried out.

Jelqing exercises provide a means by which men can achieve the desired extent.

To get the most out of your jelqing, adding a stretching routine will help you maximize your results, especially in terms of length.

If you choose stretching, make sure you switch between the two.

Then pull your penis up and stretch it out for about 10 seconds.

Attach the head of your penis in the two notches on the opposite end.

Grasp the ends of the silicone tube on the bottom of the device and slowly pull your penis outwards.

Leave the penis in the stretched position for 4 to 6 hours a day.

Press the area around the base of your penis at the same time.

Repeat these steps with the penis pulled to the left and apply pressure to the base of your penis on the right side.

Repeat these steps by pulling your penis to the right and applying pressure to the base of your penis on the left.

The tail was inserted into one end and a stone or other heavy object was hung on the other.

Injecting substances into the genital skin to cause penis enlargement is a common phenomenon in many cultures.

In the 16th century, men from the Brazilian Topinama tribe allowed poisonous snakes to bite their penis to enlarge it (how they persuaded the snake to be so precise is a mystery).

A 2016 report found no significant effects of traction devices on penis length or girth, and found that more major studies were needed.

Being too aggressive can tear tissue or damage the ligaments that connect your penis to your pelvis.

In the worst case, this type of damage can permanently affect your ability to become hard or to stay.

In Conclusion

In the end, jelqing is the most readily-accessible technique to improve your girth.

It does so by milking the blood into the copora cavernosa to maximize the expansion of the spongy tissues there.

Only by producing a positive, external force by jelqing can you hope to increase your maximum girth past your current size.

This stress training is common to all types of physical activity and for jelqing, it is no different.

The main takeaways are to go slow during the jelq stroke and particularly give a good, long squeeze at the base of your penis at the start of each stroke.

By simply keeping this mentality in mind, you'll always be on the right track.

By understanding how the copora cavernosa works, you'll never forget how jelqing exactly works and how the results come from it.

Jelqing for girth is one important aspect, but we've also wrote a detailed article, on jelqing found here, on some specific considerations for jelqing for length.

While the technique is slightly different, it's still useful to understand what's going on, just like how you now know how it works for girth targeting.
