5 Tips to Effective Wet Jelqing

Written by Jeff on May 1, 2016


1. Using Generous Amounts of Lube

Unfortunately, a lot of guys are not very generous when using lube.

There are a couple reasons for using more lube than you think. The first reason is that it will prevent rashes and irritation of the skin.

Think of it. When you're stroking your penis shaft about 200-500 strokes each day, you're bound to risk irritating your skin. It's only natural because of the force and motion that you're applying to your penis.

So if you're having a bad time jelqing because your skin is a little bit more sensitive than the average guy, than this will definitely help.

The second reason for adding more lube is that it will allow you to get a more even push of blood flow in your penis.

The goal here is consistency. Think about what happens when you use little to no lube. Your skin starts to roll over and get caught under your jelqing grip. As a result, the pressure that you're applying to your penis greatly decreases.

Then when your skin gets uncaught, the pressure suddenly increases. You're effectively not getting an even stroke which defeats the purpose of the "milking" motion of jelqing.

Rather, what happens, is that you're squeezing your penis along different parts of the shaft - not jelqing.

If you're still skeptical, try it for yourself one day. Try adding 2 times the amount of lube than you normally do if you have a feeling that you're skimping on the lube.

You will instantly notice a big difference. Also it feels great.

How to know how much lube you should be using

While you master how much lube to use the more you jelq, we can give a starting point for those who are still unsure.

A good rule of thumb is to make sure that you have a nice, yet even thin coat of lube all over your penis shaft.

If you notice certain parts getting dry or friction starts to settle in during your session, that's a key indicator that you should re-apply more lube.

2. Pouring the Lube on Your Penis Tip to Get an Even Flow

This is a neat little trick to try. Once I tried this, it changed the whole way that I apply lube for my wet jelqing.

What do most guys do when they jelq? Then stick their penis out sideways and pour the lube onto their shaft. There's nothing wrong with this, in fact, it's the most natural way we put on lube.

However, have you ever had lube spill onto the floor? Not only is that wasted lube, but now you have some clean up work to do when you're done.

Again, not the worst thing in the world, but if there was an extremely efficient way to apply lube, might as well do it, right?

The trick herre is to sit down, slouch, and point your penis straight up.

Then, take the bottle of lube and pour it directly onto your tip. Also pour in a circular motion around the tip of your penis.

What happens is that the lube will drip down your shaft nice and evenly, and you'll get the lube on all sides of your penis - left, right, top, and bottom.

And that's exactly what we want.

It's a pain to stick your penis out sideways, pour lube on the top and make sure you're getting enough on the bottom. It's also annoying if you plan to use a jelqing tool and didn't want to get your hands sticky in the first place.

Anyways, try this out, see if it works for you - for me this is the only way I put on the lube now.

3. Constantly Re-Apply Lube

Don't get cheap here.

One of the biggest mistakes that guys make when wet-jelqing is to apply lube in the beginning of their jelqing session, but forget to do so later throughout the session. Combine this with the fact that lube can also dry fairly quickly.

That's a problem because it addresses the problem from tip 1 above. To reiterate, you'll not get an even blood push and will irritate your skin.

There are a couple of ways to make sure that you're constantly putting on lube.

The first obvious one is to keep the lube close by, say on a table, instead of putting it away. Combine this with the fact that you know you have to constantly re-apply lube, and you'll automatically find yourself re-applying lube naturally.

The Counting Method

Another way to make sure you put on lube is to either mentally count or estimate a certain number of jelqing strokes until you plan to put on more lube.

For me, I try to estimate about 50 jelqing strokes before I apply tip 2's method of pouring more lube directly onto the tip of my penis shaft. 50 jelqing strokes before adding a little bit more lube is a good starting benchmark. I'm sure you'll be able to adjust this 50 number based on you're own situation and lube that you're using.

The Timer Method

Another way to remind yourself to use more lube is instead of counting jelqing repetitions, try to set an egg timer or smartphone timer for 3 minutes. When the timer goes off, tell yourself to apply more lube.

Pretty straightforward.

The Responsive Method

The last method is more dynamic and requires that you pay more attention to the state of your penis-lube moistness.

This method requires that you keep a vigiliant eye out for signs of your penis shaft drying up.

There are a couple ways to do this. The first way is to just use your eyes to see if the gloss from the lube on your penis is starting to fade away. If so? Add more lube. Simple.

The second way using the responsive method is to use your sense of touch rather than sight. Obviously this only works well when you're using your hands when jelqing and not with a jelqing tool, because your hands are the the best detectors of the level of wetness.

The rule? When you start to feel friction between your penis and your fingers, add more lube! You want to keep the lubrication as optimized as possible. By following this rule, you'll definitely be accomplishing this.

You can also combine your senses of sight and touch to detect when to add more lube. If you see the gloss from the lube fading or the friction in your jelqing grip, whichever comes first, then just add more lube.

You can't go wrong with adding more lube, but you will degrade your wet jelqing by failing to add more lube.

4. Putting a Towel Under Your Testicles

The reasons for this should be obvious.

I expect that if you're like me, you prefer to do jelqing while stitting down. That's expected because when you have to do 200-500 jelqing repetitions each session, that's quite a bit of time spent. With these number of reps per session, each jelqing session lasts about 20 minutes.

So you may as well sit down and get comfortable while doing it.

Now, if you do tip 2 that I mentioned above, then that means that the lube is going to drip down your penis shaft. There is a chance that any excess lube will drip onto your pelvis, past your testicles, and onto your chair.

While this is not too big of a problem, because water-based lube is extremely easy to clean-up, it does get a little annoying. And if you're like me, who likes to keep things clean and organized, you'll want to prevent this from happening if you can help it.

So the solution is simple: Simply put a hand towel, napkin or washcloth under your balls to catch the excess lube! The good thing about using a napkin (or even toilet paper) is that you can just throw it away when you're done.

A ridiculously effective solution for an annoying problem.

5. Trimming Your Pubic Hair to Make Life a Whole Lot Easier

While this is not really an issue for guys who are very sexually active, those that don't regularly "manscape" may run into this issue when wet jelqing.

What happens is that if you really let your pubic hair grow out, then the lube tends to easily get caught in it. Not only is this uncomfortable, but it is also annoying.

Another reason for trmming your hair down is so that you can get a good grip at the base of your penis without pulling on your pubic hair.

So the benefits of trimming are two-fold.

Here's a great guide on how to get a quick, yet close pubic hair trim.

Again, the great thing about trimming your pubic hair is that you only have to do it, say once every two weeks, or for some, only once a month, and it can be done as fast as two minutes.

In Conclusion

Jelqing is pretty straightforward, but you want to make sure you're doing it right, so you may need a quick refresher on how to jelq.

If you're looking for some variations on traditional jelqing, then you should consider learning v-jelqing and alternating jelqing.

But if you're looking to add length instead, you may be interested in the complete set of stretching exercises instead.

Once you master all these techniques, you're not only setting yourself up for a brighter sexual future, but, getting all the hard work done now, rather than later.

Once you learn all these penis enlargement techniques, you'll be glad that you learned them early because they're so easy to do.
