Jelqing Overview

The massage techniques that can increase the length and girth of the penis are known as jelqing. It is believed that jelqing originated in the Middle East where fathers would prepare their sons for sexual relationships by teaching them the technique.

The exercises are referred to as "natural" as no external devices or equipment are involved. Two hands, some kind of lubricant and some spare time each day are all that is required. No doubt because of the low cost involved, jelqing has become the most popular enlargement method in America.

The most comprehensive research into the effectiveness of jelqing was carried out in the late 1970s by Dr Brian Richards in the United Kingdom. His research was accepted for publication by the British Journal of Sexual Medicine and showed positive results for 87 percent of the test group. The results from his study showed an increase in penis length of up to 1.4 inches and an increase in penis girth of up to 1 inch.

The jelqing workouts themselves are based around a daily jelq session of around 10-30 minutes. The exercises usually start with a penis warm-up, which involves a warm bath or a towel soaked in warm water applied to the penis. The warm-up is to increase blood flow to the penis and prepare it for the jelq exercises. Once the warm-up is completed, the jelq techniques can be commenced. Jelqing should only be attempted with a semi-tumescent (semi-erect) penis - never on an erect penis. Some lubricant should be applied beforehand and the hand-grip should completely encircle the base of the penis thus ensuring that no blood escapes from the penis. The penis is then milked, with the hand moving towards the head and forcing the blood toward the end of the penis. The average workout usually consists of around 100-200 jelq movements.

The exercises can only be carried out in a semi-tumescent state as a flaccid penis will render the exercises useless and an erection will render them impossible. Ejaculation should not be allowed to occur and if the urge becomes apparent then a break from the exercises is recommended. Likewise, jelqing should be ceased should any pain or discomfort become apparent. After several months, penis size increases, both in girth or length should become apparent and long-time practitioners claim gains of several inches in length are possible.

Does jelqing work for everyone? Like any successful exercise program, men need to discipline themselves to perform the routines regularly. "This is why many men fail to complete jelqing programs, there's simply too much time required," warns jelqing guru Roger Miller, creator of the Penis Advantage program. Like other jelqing websites, Miller offers videos and tutorials on jelqing, but perhaps most importantly, he also provides a range of condensed exercises. "Other enlargement websites demand an hour or more a day for exercises. One of the options we offer is a condensed jelqing program that requires only 8 minutes per day. Men have no problem allocating 8 minutes per day and that's why our success rate is so good," said Miller.
