In this summary of the OurDoctor YouTube video we discuss if “jelqing penis exercise makes you bigger?” We’ll be talking about penis exercises and if they are safe. Jelking has been around for centuries, dating back to ancient Middle Eastern regions.
The claim behind this exercise is to increase penis size and girth. Milking, pulling, and squeezing are other known names for jelking. So what is jelking? Jelking involves stretching the skin of the penis over time by using your fingers.
This exercise creates micro tears in the skin, which heal and become thicker. To perform this method, you basically form an okay sign with your index finger and thumb, grip around the base of your penis, slowly slide your fingers up the shaft with light pressure, and then release when you reach the penis glands.
But does it work? Unfortunately, there’s not much evidence that it works. Follow Gauge Medical did a tiny study in 2008 where seven men performed 200 jelking strokes a day for three months straight.
The average increase of the seven men was 0.13 inches in length and 0.3 inches in girth. According to Fallow Gauge, the increase in size and circumference were minor and could have been more promising. International Journal of Impotence Research published another study from Singapore.
In the study, 20 men performed jelking for three months, and the study revealed no significant change in size and girth. In addition, jelking may cause more harm than good. According to men’s health and urologists, applying too much pressure on the penis can lead to erectile dysfunction.
Thousands of super-sensitive tiny nerves in the shaft and glands are essential in producing a healthy erection. Jelking can potentially cause permanent damage to the nerves and the whole system. Jelking can also cause a lot of inflammation and cause bad scarring on your penis.
There have even been cases where men tore up veins while jerking. Therefore, most urologists will not recommend jerking. You can try safer methods of treatment. You desire to be bigger or want a prolonged erection.
What you eat can affect the quality of your erection. Try eating more quality and healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and fish. Multivitamins and supplements can help your blood flow.
For example, nitric oxide can help relax your blood vessels and increase flow to the penis. Using a penis pump may help give you a temporary elongation of the penis. Many men have great success with the penis pump, which is a great way to make it feel bigger.
However, this is a short-term solution and is not permanent. Several erectile dysfunction medications on the market can help you become erect, which makes a big difference in your sex life.
