I've known of jelqing since 2000 from an Internet search. I've done it off and on for a while and quit when I didn't see length gains everyone said I would achieve.
Years later, I start up again and notice a gain in thickness. But it came with a price. For some reason, I began to only last a few minutes with my girlfriend at the time and it bothered the hell out of me. I stopped jelqing again and my girth gains decreased and notice my time having sex began to increase. I was doing a basic 6 minute jelq with 5 min warmup & 5 min warm down.
Then in 2007, I found out about ADS like size genetics. Bought one and didn't like the pain of it. Only did it for an hour a day. But, I noticed better sex, but no gains what so ever.
My girlfriend at the time said I was perfect. Now, me being 5 inches long and 5 inches wide, I knew I was small. I always knew I was small. Plus, all of her exes were over 6 feet tall. Statistically, they were larger than me. In fact, I was certain that I was her smallest partner.
We ended breaking up three years later. I then found the Bathmate online. So, I bought it. First time pump was phenomenal. "Holy shit. This is it." *But, I ended up getting what I found out later as a large amount of fluid retention, which is considered a no-no. I gave up again. Shocker.
I then started dating again right around the time I started hanging. I've read amazing things, but was aware it involves dedication and time. Of course, going back to school and an amazing new girlfriend derailed my PE time. Eventually l ended up only hanging for barely two days out of the week and sometimes doing 10 minutes in the bathmate to ZERO.
I've always hated my length. Why am I like this? Why?*
If only I had the time to truly hang.
Careful what you wish for. My girlfriend said she needed space. We haven't talked in a while. I've begun hanging. I currently use the VLC tugger and hang 7.7 pounds for about two hours and drop to 4.4 pounds for my third hour. I pump in the bathmate for just 5-10 minutes on low pressure while flaccid. I do this 3 days in a row with 1 day off and repeat the cycle. I've been doing this for only a week. I am not pursuing a relationship at all until I get my confidence. Until I get my length up to an inch longer. I know it sounds silly, but it's been the elephant in the room for me my entire life. I'm expected to have a huge dick and I don't. Not anymore. I will get larger.*
I know this was a ridiculously long post, but I felt like I needed to sign up and post. Thank you for your time and your words of encouragement.
