Jelqing is allegedly an ancient Islamic practice of natural penis enlargement. Yet there is no mention of the word “jelq” – or anything related to it in the Koran or any other ancient Arabic or Islamic texts. Proponents of the technique say it does for men and sexual function, what Kegel exercises can do for women.
It is basically a method of exercising the vessels in the erectile tissue of the penis in a certain way to add length or girth. In theory the practice does have some merit when done carefully and “correctly” as do certain other much more reputable penis enhancement exercises.
In Jelqing the flaccid penis is stroked in a certain way to a semi-erect state. Using the method – in theory anyway – blood is forced from the base of the penis to the tip, evidently enlarging the cavities in the organ’s spongy tissues, the areas that fill with blood to give you an erection. With bigger cavities to fill, more blood rushes in, and the result is bigger erections.
How to Jelq to Improve Sexual Function
To “Jelq” as it were, form a ring with your thumb and forefinger at the base of you penis. Squeeze the ring tight creating firm pressure, and stroke up to the ridge that marks the beginning of the tip of penis. Now I know what this sounds like and no, you are not “spanking the monkey” – in fact if the technique is done properly you are not supposed to bring yourself to a full erection – nor ejaculate.
To continue: As your first stroking hand nears the tip of your penis, take your other hand to the base of your penis, and stroke up as the first hand comes down, thus you are creating a continuous base to tip motion. If you do this for a certain amount of time a day (in private of course) for a period of a few months, one to three inches has been claimed to be able to be added to penis size.
Does Jelqing Work?
Does Jelqing work for effective penis enlargement? According to hundreds of websites it does. But the jury is still out by the medical community. The theory however is similar to a legitimate practice used by urologists to treat Erectile Dysfunction (ED) – vacuum therapy, in which pumps are used to open the blood vessels as described in Jelqing. And while doctors admit that Jelqing may have little or no benefit to actual enlargement of the penis – there are some risks involved. The motion suggested by Jelqing, if done too hard or too much – can actually harm or damage the blood vessels you are trying to widen. In that case not only will you not have larger erections, you may not have any erections at all.
So, if you are seeking a drug-free alternative to oral ED medications such as Viagra, Jelqing may help, but overall, it may not be everything its cracked “up” to be.
