Instead of lengthening his penis as he had hoped, his repeated use of "jelqing" (penile stretching exercises) led to frightening results: pain and bruising of the penis, loss of sexual sensation and embarrassing soft erections.

Case #: 


I consider myself to be a confident man, except when it comes to the size of my penis. It’s a decent size but I wish it was a little bigger—like maybe an inch or two. Recently, I read some articles that explained how guys can make their penises longer and thicker with stretching exercises called “jelqing.” I tried the technique for a few months and saw some minor results. But I also developed some side effects that have me pretty worried.
Minor pain at the base of my penis was the first thing I noticed. Then, my erections started losing steam. No matter how turned on I was, my cock could only get semi-hard.  It was almost flaccid. During intercourse I could barely keep it up well enough to satisfy my partner. For a while, I tried to ignore the pain and softness.  I dismissed them as a temporary condition and figured they’d go away by themselves.  But when I noticed bruises on my penis I started to panic!  Then, as if the bruises, pain and softness weren’t bad enough, I started having sensitivity issues.  I couldn’t feel any stimulation when my penis got touched. Meanwhile, my erections were getting weaker and weaker.
I’m really scared that I did some serious damage to myself. Tell me what I did wrong and what I need to do to fix this mess!


First thing you need to do is relax. Yeah, we know you’re experiencing some serious symptoms but you’re not the first guy to go through this. Not by a long shot!

A Common Problem
The pain, insensitivity, erectile weakness and bruising you describe are more common than you may realize. The good news is that there are some pretty simple steps you can take to repair the damage and get your sex life back on track.

Common Reasons for Enlarging the Penis

  1. Some guys just want a larger, wider penis for a confidence boost.
  2. Other men feel worried what their partners will think of a small penis
  3. And even "average-sized" men want a large penis for enhanced partner satisfaction. 
The Dangerous Truth About Jelqing
So, how did you get into this fix in the first place?  In a word:  jelqing!  When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. The alleged penis enlargement technique known as jelqing is another example of myth overshadowing reality with unfortunate and painful consequences.  
The idea that you can stretch your crotch rocket to the size of a Titan missile seems exciting, but watch out!  Chances are you won’t gain any inches through jelqing, but you could wind up with a painful, bruised penis that refuses to rise to the occasion.
Jelqing has gained popularity through blogs and how-to videos that have flooded the Internet in recent years. The basic technique involves wrapping the forefinger and thumb tightly around the base of the penis and firmly pulling up the shaft toward the head.  Jelqing advocates claim that, after several weeks, this stretching will result in a longer (and sometimes thicker) penis.  
Despite all of the online chatter and viral video tutorials, there is no reliable clinical evidence that jelqing actually increases penis size.  But there are plenty of examples of jelqing leading to the kind of pain, bruising, insensitivity and erectile dysfunction that you are experiencing now. 
Disastrous Consequences of Penis Stretching
Stretching the penis too far (through jelqing, vacuum pumps, cock rings or overly-intense masturbation) can rupture blood vessels, damage nerve endings and cause painful bruising that can lead to the formation of scar tissue in the penis’ spongy tissues. All of this spells disaster for a man’s erection.  

Rupturing of the blood vessels slows or stops the flow of blood to the penis making it difficult to achieve a solid erection. This erectile dysfunction can be exacerbated if the penile nerves have been injured.  Nerve damage blocks the sensitivity needed for sexual arousal, thereby making it more difficult for the penis to get hard.

Rest and Restoration
Again, you need to relax!  You can recover from all of this, but your body’s going to need time – like a few months -- to heal properly.  So, step one is to be patient.  Take a break from sex for a while.  And, yes, by sex we also mean masturbation.

Remember, your blood vessels and nerve endings need to be restored and those hideous, god-awful bruises need to clear up.  Messing with your penis will slow down this process so you need to hang a metaphorical “out of order” sign on your crotch and forget about all forms of sex for a while. This would be a great time to clean out the garage, work on your golf game or improve your jump shot!

I can’t believe the things men will do to themselves thinking they need to do it to please a woman! We don’t about size, as long as your penis is above 5 inches! If you’ve got that much, at least, you don’t need to worry! If you’ve got less than that, well, you’re not the luckiest guy, but work on your general bedroom technique and you’l be fine. As a matter of fact, all you guys ought to work on your technique! It’s not all in the penis, we expect you to do things with your hands and mouths too, just like we do! Guys, I know you enjoy it more when a lady gives you a full-body experience, why not try to replicate that for your lady? Our bodies are crammed with erotic areas, make use of them! Sorry to rant, but these kind of fears are stupid, and you might do better things with your psychoses than obsess about size.

i was really excite to start jelqing after i read how good it work for men, but now i’m afraid. my penise is already in bad shape i don’t want to make it worst! i have very sensative penise, and i don’t want to hurt it. i’m already 6 inches, but i want to be more thick and long. i read there is some pills i can take on this site but idk what one are best for my case.

i am 17, 6’4 and 150 pounds. i masterbate only sometime per week, not everyday. i am still in high school and i have no girlfriend but i want to get one. girls always ask for some photo of my dick but i can ever send one. i am confuse about how to make my penise long and hard without some problem. is there some safe way to do this?

I’ve bee practicing jelqing on my own, but I haven’t had any problems with it. It’s important to follow the instructions specifically. I jelq once per day, usually in the morning, as my penis is usually already at least semi-hard. I use simple, light pressure and pulling, and lots of lube. I never pull until it hurts, and I always make sure there’s no pain or bruising each morning before I begin.

When I started jelqing, I had to give myself a day or two in between sessions, as my penis felt very tender. I did notice rapid growth, and now, after almost a year of practice, I’ve grown about 1 inch. To respond to the poster above, my penis I believe was what is known as a “micropenis”, at only 3 inches long. The longer my penis grows, the more confident I feel in my lovemaking. It’s not that I don’t think I can please a woman otherwise, but I don’t want to look like some kind of freak to her! Anyhow, jelqing is working out well for me, and I think it can work for anyone, if they follow the directions.
