Male Enhancement Terms & Lingo
The following is a chapter taken from the book: The Ultimate Guide To Male Enhancement.
Sometimes when reading information about male enhancement, even if full words are used, it can be difficult to fully understand what the original author means. Some terms and lingo used in the male enhancement world may be unfamiliar to you. Use this list, if you come across something you’re unsure of the meaning.
●Adequate Rest– Obtaining adequate rest is one of the three principles in the “Circle of Gains” found in the penis enlargement book Exercising the Penis. Obtaining rest while penile exercising is important as it allows your penis time to heal and grow.
●Base– This refers to the base of the penis. Most often, the base refers to the first visible part of the penis near the pubic bone. For example, Encircle the base of your penis with an OK–grip. However, anatomically speaking, the base of the penis is at the foundation of the inner penis, which is inside the body and above the perineum.
●Body Clues– Paying attention to your “body clues” is one of the three principles in the “Circle of Gains” found in the book Exercising the Penis. Listening and following your body clues is absolutely vital to healthy and effective penile exercising and will help you avoid injury. This is also sometimes referred to as “body cues.”
●Bone–Pressed– To measure from pubic bone to the tip of the head, with the ruler pressed into the bone.
●Bulbocavernosus Muscle– This is one of the chief pelvic floor muscles; also known as the BC muscle or the bulbospongiosusmuscle. Along with assisting the process of erection, the bulbocavernosus muscle compresses the urethra, typically to empty it of residual semen or urine.
●Bulbospongiosus Muscle– This is another name for the bulbocavernosus muscle.
●Cementing– Involves weaning yourself off a penile exercising routine in an effort to make your penis enlargement gains permanent.
●Circle of Gains– This is a term coined in the penis enlargement book, Exercising The Penis. The Circle of Gains is made up of the three essential principles of penile exercising: Obtain Adequate Rest, Gradually Increase the Intensity, and Watch Your Body Clues.
●Collagen– Collagen is a protein that makes up the connective tissue within the penis.
●Conditioning– Conditioning is characterized by a penis that is highly adapted to penile exercising. Penis enlargement growth often slows down as result of being conditioned. Conditioning can often be undone by taking a long break to decondition the penis.
●Clamping Devices– These are penis enlargement devices that work by clamping off the base of the penis, restricting blood flow and causing the penis to expand outward.
●Corpora Cavernosa– These are the two top chambers of the penis; largely composed of collagen and smooth muscle. The corpora cavernosa hardens upon erection.
●Corpora Spongiosum– This is the bottom of the penis; it holds the urethra. It stays semi–soft upon erection.
●Darkening Effect– The darkening effect is also known as discoloration. Darkening is a fairly common side effect that involves the penis, or parts of the penis, becoming darker.
●Deconditioning– This is a break from penile exercising that reverses the effects of conditioning. An effective deconditioning break typically lasts six to twelve weeks.
●Discoloration– See darkening effect.
●Dry Jelq- This means to Jelq without lubrication.
●Ejaculate– Ejaculate happens when the body discharges semen.
●Engorged– Traditionally, engorged is used when something is filled full with something else. In the case of male enhancement, it typically refers to when the penis is filled with blood.
●Erect Exercises– Erect exercises are an intense form of penile exercising that involves the erect penis. These are not advised for at least six months of consistent exercising and definitely are not for beginners.
●Erectile Dysfunction– Erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection.
●Erection Level– Erection level refers to how engorged your penis is. The erection levels run from 0 to 100 percent and together make up the erection gauge. The higher your erection level, the more erect you are.
●Fat Pad– The fat pad is the fat positioned in front of your pubic bone. The smaller your fat pad, the more visible penis you have.
●Flaccid– Flaccid is the state of the penis when it is not erect. The penis is soft with a zero percent erection level.
●Frenulum– The frenulum is the slender strip of skin on the underside of the penis that joins the shaft to the head.
●Glans– The glans is the head of the penis. It is the anatomical part of the penis where urine and semen are discharged.
●Gradually Increase Intensity– To gradually increase the intensity of a male enhancement exercise, you only increase it a small amount at a time. This can refer to the tightness of your grip, the pull of the stretch, the amount of vacuum in the pump, the stretch of the extender, or even the amount of weight being hung. The keyword here is gradual, as many men up the intensity way before their penis is ready, which can result in serious injury.
●Grower– A grower is a man whose flaccid penis is small and dramatically grows upon erection. A grower is the opposite of a shower.
●Intensity– Intensity is the amount of force used; it is a measure of the amount of strength you are using when penile exercising.
●Intensity Level– The intensity level helps you decipher how intense the exercise is. The higher the Intensity Level, the higher the intensity.
●Ischiocavernosus muscle– One of the chief pelvic floor muscles; also known as the IC muscle. The ischiocavernosus muscle contributes to erection by compressing the inner penis, which squeezes blood into the outer penis.
●Jelq– This is a penile exercise that involves milking the blood throughout your penis. The Jelq helps build penis length, girth and hardness.
●Jelq Device– A device that increases the intensity of your Jelqs.
●Kegel– (pronounced KAY–gul). Kegel is an exercise that uses the pelvic floor muscles. The Kegel has an array of benefits, particularly increased hardness.
●Manual Exercises– Manual exercises are penile exercises using only the hands, opposed to exercises that use a penis enlargement device.
●Mid–Shaft– This is the middle of your penis,halfway between your base and your glans.
●Natural Penis Enlargement– The enlargement of the penis through penile exercising.
●Nocturnal Erections –These are random erections that take place during your sleep, most often in the REM stage of sleep.
●Non–Bone Pressed– This means to barely press the ruler against the skin when measuring length; not pressing the ruler into the pubic bone.
●Overhand Grip– Overhand grip refers to the position of your grip, in which your fingers are facing the floor.
●Overtraining– Overtraining occurs when a man engages in penile exercises more than his penis can handle. Overtraining inhibits penis enlargement growth and leads to negative physiological indicators(such as weak erections).
●Penile– Of or relating to the penis.
●Penile Exercising– The act of exercising the penis.
●Penile Exerciser– A man who penile exercises
●Penis Enlargement– The enlargement of the penis. The most popular penis enlargement methods include penile exercising, the use of a device and surgery. Our penis enlargement guide shows how to use penile exercises as a way for enlargement.
●Penis Enlargement Device– A device designed to enlarge and exercise the penis.
●Perineum– (pronounced pear–uh–NEE–um) This is the region between the anus and testicles.
●Petechiae– The medical name for spots that form on the penis. The spots are typically red and are fairly common in the beginning. They often occur due to Jelqing.
●Peyronie’s Disease– Peyronie’s diseases is a curvature of the penis caused by plaque formation inside the tunica.
●Phallus– Of or relating to the penis.
●Pincher Grip– This is a grip that forms a “pinching” hand gesture; places less pressure on the underside and the head of the penis. It looks as if you are pinching the penis.
●Plateau– Plateaus happen when penis enlargement gains come to a halt.
●Point of No Return– This is the point in which semen starts moving through the urethra. Ejaculation is inevitable once you reach the point of no return.
●Post–micturition dribble: A condition in which urine consistently dribbles from the penis at the end of an urination session.
●Prostate –This refers to the prostate gland, which is an organ which encircles the urethra at the base of the bladder. The prostate gland controls the release of urine and secretes the alkaline fluid that holds semen upon ejaculation.
●Pubic Bone –The pubic bone is located directly above your penis, right below your abdomen.
●Pubococcygeus Muscle: (Pronounced PEW–bo–cox–uh–GEE–us) A hammock–like muscle that extends from thepubic bone to the tailbone. Both males and females have a “PC” muscle.
●Shock Routine –A shock routine is penile exercising for several hours in one day in an effort to jumpstart penis enlargement gains or break a plateau. Shock routines are too intense for beginners. After a shock routine, you take a break for at least several days and quite possibly a week or more.
●Shower –A shower is a man whose penis is typically highly engorged and good for show (in accordance to size). A shower has a flaccid penis that doesn’t grow much upon erection.
●Skeletal Muscles –Skeletal muscles are striated muscles that are usually voluntary (smooth muscle is typically involuntary). Skeletal muscles include the biceps, quadriceps, abdomens and other muscles. The pelvic floor muscles, located at the base of the inner penis, are skeletal muscles. You can strengthen these muscles and improve your sex life by using the Kegel.
●Shaft –The shaft is main body of the penis.
●Sporadic Exercising –Sporadic exercising is randomly exercising the penis; following no specific routine.
●Spotting –Spotting is a moderately common side effect in the beginning in which spots (often red) form on the penis.Medically, this is known as petechiae.
●Tunica –The tunica is a strong, tendon–like tissue that covers the corpus chambers within the penis.
●Urinary Incontinence –Urinary incontinence is a condition that involves the involuntary excretion of urine, often in relation to another underlying medical condition. Urinary incontinence is more common in women than in men.
●Urinate –To discharge urine; to go pee.
●Urethra –The urethra is a canal from which semen and urine discharge.
●Vasodilator –A drug or nerve that opens the blood vessels and increases blood flow.
●Warm up _Warm up is a method of heating the penis prior to penile exercising. A warm up increases probability of growth, decreases side effects and decreases chances of injury.
●Wet Jelq: To wet Jelq, Jelq with lubrication.
