PC Muscle (Pubococcygeus)

[ ?]


The strengthening and development of the Pubococcygeus or 'PC' muscle is also considered to be a key element of an effective penis enlargement routine.
The Pubococcygeus is one of a group of muscles forming part of the Pelvic Floor. It is the PC muscle that contracts during ejaculation and also acts to stop the flow of urine from the bladder. In fact, the easiest way to locate the PC muscle is to voluntarily stop the flow of urine mid stream. The muscle that contracts to achieve this is the PC muscle.

Strengthening the PC muscle and improving the control one has over its function has many benefits. A well developed PC muscle improves the circulation to the penis resulting in firmer erections. Those suffering from weak erections or Impotence therefore often benefit from PC exercises. Improved control over the PC muscle can also assist in delaying ejaculation. The ability to strongly contract and relax the PC muscle as and when the need arises, can therefore also be a helpful aid for preventing premature ejaculation. Orgasm intensity is also enhanced; ejaculations are more powerful and the volume of ejaculate is significantly increased. Furthermore, good conditioning of the PC muscle is vital for maintaining the health of the prostate.

The exercises used to strengthen the PC muscle are known as Kegels, named after the pioneer of the techniques, Dr Arnold Kegel. Although initially intended to benefit women with poor bladder control, their effect on improving the sexual health of men has become widely accepted. The basic exercise consists of tensing the PC muscle and holding the contraction for 5-10 seconds before relaxing. This constitutes a single repetition. This process is then repeated 10-20 times to complete the session. It is often recommended that several sessions of Kegels should be performed at intervals throughout the day. A carefully planned penis enlargement routine usually consists of a number of variations of the above basic technique and will often follow a more detailed and elaborate sequence of events.

The Jelq

A key element to any natural penis enlargement routine is the use of an exercise known as the Jelq. The principle of the Jelq technique is to increase blood flow to all areas within the penis and in particular to the three main chambers within the penile shaft. These three chambers, known as the Corpora Cavernosa and the Corpus Spongisum run through the entire length of the penile shaft and consist of erectile tissue. It is this erectile tissue that engorges with blood when sexually aroused, resulting in an erection. The Jelq is believed to increase the blood capacity of the three erectile chambers thereby promoting gains in penile length and girth.

The Jelq technique is fairly simple to perform and relies on applying a milking motion along the length of the penile shaft. This is achieved by encircling the base of the penis, i.e. the point where the penis meets the pubic area, with the thumb and forefinger. A partial erection must first have been achieved for the Jelq technique to be effective. The thumb and forefinger must completely encircle the penile shaft and grip with sufficient force to ensure the partial erection is maintained, in effect trapping the blood within the penis.

Maintaining moderate pressure around penis, the grip hand then slides forward along the entire length of the penile shaft, encouraging the blood held within the penis to engorge all areas of the erectile tissue as it is forced forwards. As the grip hand nears the end of the penile shaft the alternate hand then repeats the process, resulting in a continuous motion. It is difficult to quantify the optimum length of time each Jelq movement should take. However, most sources suggest each milking motion should take around 1-2 seconds.

There are several important points to note when performing the Jelq. It is essential that the technique is never performed when the penis is fully erect, as this may result in injury. Furthermore, if the technique results in pain or discomfort, the Jelqing session should be terminated immediately. It is also important to choose an appropriate lubricant. The use of Baby Oil or Vaseline for example, will greatly help to facilitate the process.

In addition to promoting gains in penile size, increasing blood flow and thereby improving circulation to the penis may have further beneficial side-effects. Most men notice a marked improvement in the rigidity of their erections. It is also suggested that Jelqing may also be beneficial in preventing or even curing Impotence. Although Impotence can have many causes, including psychological origins, it does seem feasible that improving blood flow to the penis can have a positive effect in combating this condition.

Penis Stretching Techniques

Exercises performed to stretch the penis are also considered an important element of a well structured routine. The body's ability to adapt and change when subjected to tensile force is well documented. Cells within an area exposed to such force divide and multiply, resulting in an increase in tissue mass. Penis stretching techniques rely on this principle as do the use of penis weights and stretching devices. However, manual stretching does not result in long term reduction of blood circulation to the glans of the penis as can result from the use of weights.

Stretching exercises promote gains primarily in penile length. They do little to increase the girth of the penis. These increases are achieved in part at least through the stretching of the suspensory ligaments that support the penis. These ligaments are responsible for anchoring the penis to the pubic bone. However, they also hold a substantial portion of the penile shaft within the body. Stretching the penis encourages the suspensory ligament to lengthen, which in turn gradually exposes the section of the penile shaft normally hidden within the body.

Stretching exercises are again, simple to perform. They involve gripping the head of the flaccid penis and gently pulling forward. The stretch should not be so intense as to cause pain or discomfort, put should merely stretch the penis to its maximum comfortable capacity. A basic exercise would be to then hold the stretch for 15-30 seconds before relaxing. The process would then be repeated 10-15 times to complete the session. A well constructed routine consists of several important variations of the above basic technique. Such variations focus on stretching all areas of the penis and suspensory ligaments and require differing numbers of repetitions to be performed per session.
