Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I was holding MY DICK! Yeah, baby! I am finally blowing this penis up into a 6 inch (girth) monster DICK! I have eased into the pumping jelqing combo routine that involves cycling the pressure up and down and jelqing between sets. It goes sort of like this: Warm up with heating pad for about 5 minutes. I perform 50-100 jelqs using the PJ. I do one set at around 4hg of pressure with the pump. A set is 15 minutes for me. I wrap a heating pad around the pump cylinder the entire time, held tightly with a velcro strap. PJ and massage for about 5 minutes. Back to the tube with a good erection. With this set I pump to about 4hg of pressure. Once the tube is warmed up with the heating pad, I cycle down to 2hg. Kegel many times. Raise pressure to 4hg. Kegel. Raise pressure to 6hg. Kegel. Raise pressure to 8hg. Kegel and hold at 8hg for about 30 seconds. Lower pressure to 2hg and repeat. This is rapid fire for 15 minutes. When the 15 minutes is up, I come out of the tube and use the PJ for about 5 minutes along with massage. Then back to the pump routine. This is the routine I mentioned earlier that I had studied and began to incorporate into my PEing. The combination of PJ, pump, heat, massage, and stretching has been proven worthy by many others. In my case, I am now ending my sessions with 6 inches of erect girth. I am not only expanding the girth, but pulling the shaft to upwards of 7 3/4 inches in length. The negative side of pumping in the past has been that it was impossible to cement every inch of gain. Pumpers have always lost a good bit of the gain after they stopped pumping. However, the combination of pumping and jelqing along with the cycling routine has been proven to cement gains with VERY little maintenance. Only time will tell if it works for me. So far, so good. Prior to this post I was measuring 5 5/8 erect girth. Today I am consistently getting just under 5 3/4 erect girth BEFORE any PE work. When I finished last night I was holding an erect 7.25 x 6 dick in my hands. And, in case you are wondering, I had very, very little to no donut effect. Staying at low pressures in the pump has been proven to be effective in preventing the donut effect. As for the 7.25 x 6 dick I was holding, it was rigid and hard. It was not covered with a layer of soft tissue (water under the skin). It was a boner! And let me say it again, 6 inches of girth is very manly. It looks mean! Girth is what I have been concentrating on for a while now and it looks like the work is paying off. I'll report back in time and let you know if the good results continue and, most importantly, if the gains are staying with me.
