Jelqing is a way to naturally increase your penis size by using stretching and massaging exercises. Many people do not try jelqing because they are afraid of injuries.
Is jelqing safe?
While there are potential risks involved with jelqing, if done properly it can be completely safe. Most jelqing injuries occur as a result of trying to do too much too quickly. It is important to avoid over-training when performing jelqing exercises. Over-training or applying too much pressure may result in small bruises or cuts. These injuries typically heal overnight and are not serious.
It is important to be safe when you are performing jelqing exercises. There are a few tips that can help prevent injuries and improve results:
Just like any exercise, jelqing requires a proper warm up. You should start by wrapping a warm cloth around your penis. Jelqing immediately after a shower is also effective. Warming up allows you to get the blood flowing in your penis and helps prevent injuries.
Maintain a semi-flacid state
One of the most common ways to injure your penis is by performing jelqing exercises while fully erect. Your veins may be damaged if you are fully erect while jelqing. You should be somewhat flacid but not entirely limp either. If you are completely limp, the exercises will lose all effectiveness.
Apply the appropriate amount of pressure
Applying too much pressure can cause bruising on your penis. However, too little pressure will not achieve the desired results. If you experience any pain while jelqing, you should stop immediately. You should start slowly and gradually increase the amount of pressure you apply with your strokes. After you find a comfortable rhythm, you can stick with it.
Never perform jelqing exercises without adequate lubrication. If your penis is dry you dramatically increase the likelihood of injury. Be sure to apply a liberal amount of lubrication and reapply it if begins to wear off.
Similar to other exercise programs, jelqing is safe if you proper precautions.
