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.
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
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.
