If you have questions you’d like answered in an Ask the Experts article, please PM Big Al.
Q. In the instructions for Stamina Training it’s advised to ejaculate at the end of the Stop and Starts…
…but what if I want to get the benefits of not ejaculating? Can I train the Stop and Starts without ejaculating?
Big Al: If you’re training for sexual proficiency, then SOME regular ejaculations are required. There certainly is a risk of ejaculating too frequently, but ejaculating infrequently can create a “use it or lose it” scenario.
I am aware of the Chinese study that shows a spike in testosterone levels after 7 days of abstinence, then a DROP. If you read through the study, you’ll note where it states: “No regular fluctuation was observed following continuous abstinence after the peak.” It should also be noted that additional testosterone in your bloodstream will not increase your penis size if you are a healthy adult.
The takeaway from this is you should find the level of ejaculatiory frequency that’s right for you- enough to preserve your libido and allow for increased functioning, but not so much you deplete your libido and energy. The general recommendation is to ejaculate 3-4 times a week, so you can work from this point to determine the optimal frequency for you.
Q. I’ve been having some troubles with my routine – First and the main is that my erection isn’t good at all …
It might and probably is due to my sleep and hard training at the gym …
I’m sleeping ok , 8+ hours every night but around 5pm. I’m super tired and I get it that I should take a nap -will do it from tomorrow …
Stop and Start time dropped – first two stops are 2 minutes top and then the last one I somehow manage to do 7+ minutes and when it gets really close to ponr I remember to breathe …
Anyway , I’ve decided to take a break from todays and next two routines just to rest the penis a little bit …
And yes , I wanted to ask you about doing stop and starts with a woman –
1) This one doesn’t matter if it’s with a woman …
I read that I should masturbate up to couple of seconds before ejaculating …
Is that how it should be done or when I feel that the end is about to come – my pelvic floor starts tensing and I know that I’ve lost control over it – when should I stop , first or second ?
2) Are there some positions that you suggest since I need to have full control over the motions ?
3) And I understood that I shouldn’t do the Stop and Starts if I have sex more than three times a week ?
4) Since in the past I managed easily to get erection after finishing once or just maintaining it , is it bad to cum 3,4 times per evening when with a partner ?
5) And when coming 3 or 4 times, do you suggest doing the Stop and Start each time or just the first time ?
Big Al: Given the totality of your circumstances, you may not be allowing enough recovery for progress. A few days off would be a good idea, and when you resume, let’s stick with Stamina Only (Kegels and Stop and Starts) for awhile until you feel conditioned enough to transition to a full routine.
To answer your questions:
1) Performing the techniques of the Stop and Starts during sexual activity is a superior practice to the manual version, but also more difficult to control. You’ll need to experiment with learning how you feel when you’re building up to ejaculation. If your pelvic floor begins to flutter this is a good sign you’re getting close. Slowing/stopping at this time should allow you to hold off ejaculation/orgasm. Learning when to stop and the timing in which you kegel in reference to approaching the PONR is going to take practice.
2) Missionary position allows you maximum control, and when performed correctly is often the preferred position for giving a woman orgasms.
3) You should limit the MANUAL Stop and Starts as per the “60 Minute Rule” outlined in the Stamina Exercises section. You can have as much sexual contact as you can handle, but please be aware that sex can be considered a form of training. If you’re engaging in a lot of sex (several hours a day, multiple days per week) this will cut into your recovery. Yo umay need to take extra days off between your enlargement sessions to account for this. Compound this with other types of trainign and you can see how you’ll need to optimize your recovery if you wish to be able to handle it all.
4) If you can recover enough to engage in 3 to 4 bouts of sexual activity per evening then more power to you 🙂
5) Practicing during live sexual activity is different from manual training. I don’t want to place any positive limitations on you (which includes the number of “stops”), but you should ensure you’re attempting to increase your time each session.
Q. I like the way you’re so methodical about training!
As a bodybuilder, I can relate to a lot of the principles you outline in your courses. Would you say that having experience with bodybuilding can be helpful to penis training?
Big Al: There are some similarities (and some important differences) with weight training and male enhancement training. Male enhancement does rely on progressive training principles to force progress, but the feel of the movements and the resultant level of tissue stretch is far more important than reps or intensity. Also- with the exception of Kegel-type exercises- male enhancement exercises are passive in nature. The concept is similar to PNF style stretching for bodybuilding.
