    Morning wood has been weaker the last few days so I'm glad to be coming up on my two days "off". I should stop calling them "off" days, really; I don't have "off" days, just light exercise days. Anyways, I'll take it easy over the weekend so that I can come back fully charged on Monday.

    As I read threads like Incogneeetoe's log, I'm reminded of how far you level up your game with regards to both size and control. I'm really focused on hitting that 5.5" MSEG right now but pelvic floor balance, EQ, and ejaculation control are all on my mind as well.

    Have a good weekend, everybody.

    I don't know what's going on here but after laying off the stretches for two days, my girth is noticeably improved. All my exercises are girth-oriented now.

    A quick post-PE measurement today put me at 7.75" BPEL, around 5.1" MSEG, and 5.75" BEG. I don't know why it's so easy to get girth right at the base but such a battle to gain MSEG. I've got the opposite of a baseball bat. Anyways, those are great post-PE measurements for me. I think I'll stick with what I'm doing.

    I've been thinking I might eventually gather the ingredients for something like kingpole's Erection Tea. I've also seen his post on the five G's. I already take several vitamins every day but these aren't included yet. I think it'd be a killer combo if I could increase the frequency/strength of spontaneous erections while also wearing the cock ring.

    Thanks, voelkey. I'm grateful that PE has given me some awesome gains on my BPEL and I'm sure that with some experimentation and persistence, I can continue to gradually move the dial on my girth.

    It's an off-day today but I realize I haven't really summarized my current routine for a bit, so here it is:


    Core Routine (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday)

    • Warm up with rice sock 10 minutes
    • 3 set of the following:
      • Air pump 10 minutes @ 5-7hg
      • x100 jelq
      • Clamp and Kegel/RK 10 minutes

    • Warm down with rice sock 5 minutes



    Bathmate Routine (Every day)

    • Bathmate while showering/brushing teeth, one uninterrupted session, 20 minutes. I progressively increase the pump pressure as my dick expands during the session.
    • x100 jelq


    I wear a cock ring most of the time (including sleep), except when I'm doing the core routine or Bathmate. I use kojic acid lotion for PE to reduce discoloration and I apply aloe vera gel (with manuka honey and some other stuff in it) after. As previously noted, I'm taking a break from all stretching.

    My dick is definitely bigger than when I started this current routine, and it's definitely not just edema (which has fooled me before). An extra 1/8" to 1/4" after just a couple months of work would be amazing, however I'm not at all convinced that these gains are even the slightest bit cemented. That's always been the hard part for me.

    I think my goal is to keep my dick in this expanded state without stressing it. I've found that when I take a complete break from PE, my tunica tightens up within a day or two, which is why I'm so hesitant to have 100% off days. I want to prevent the shrinkage but allow the tissues to go into "repair" mode so they can grow. That's the logic behind my current approach.

    Thanks for good words!
    I really like your routine and hope you reach your aims soon. Tuck-and-sit stretches are something that I'm clearly gonna consider. Your no-porn attitude is a thing I can identify too. I'm still working on that, unfortunatelly sometimes fail, but PE helps me to stay away from it.
    Good luck on your goals.

    I'm taking a break from my beloved tuck-and-sit stretches, at least for a little while. I'm just curious to see what happens overall if I stay focused on girth exercises. Additionally, I'm increasing my air pump sets from 5 minutes to 10 minutes. Between this and the cock ring, I can tell that I'm expanding to a larger girth during the exercises. It's highly motivating.

    No ill effects from the kojic acid lotion so I'm just using it as my go-to lube for my core routine. At the same time that I'm trying to lighten my dick's color, I'm also sunbathing naked to darken my overall skin tone. I have a balcony with a visual barrier, so I'm able to strip and tan out there for a few minutes most days.

    I'm applying the aloe vera gel after my routine. Today's PE felt like a solid workout but my EQ was good throughout.

    Here's my take on the aloe vera gel and kojic acid lotion, now that I've tried both... the aloe is thick, good consistency for jelqing at first but gets a little sticky as you work it in. Dries okay, not really sticky after a few minutes. The kojic acid lotion is a thin consistency but basically like any other lotion. I used a tiny bit yesterday and my dick didn't fall off or catch fire, so today I used a bit more during my core PE routine. Maybe some minor irritation but nothing alarming. I'll keep experimenting with both to decide if/how/when to use them.

    Other than marinating my dick in these gels/lotions, no breaking news to report. I still do some tuck-and-sits in the morning but I've been stretching less overall. I like the thickness I get from the cock ring and I find that stretching sorta drains it out. Unexpectedly, I measured a full 8" after my core PE routine this morning, so I guess less is more? I feel this isn't the first time I've noticed a longer measurement after cutting back on the stretching.

    Still no porn. I often fantasize in order to get hard and sometimes I try to recall something I remember from porn but... it's like those neural pathways are sorta fading away a bit. I think that's a good thing but it leaves me wondering... like, okay, so I don't have porn, and now I'm losing my porn-related memories, so... I guess I've got to carve out some new pleasure pathways in my brain.

    Today is an off-day but I wanted to make quick post. I'm keeping the cock ring on pretty much all the time (including while I sleep) and here's what I'm noticing:

    Morning wood is just insane. This morning when I woke up it was almost as big as it gets right after using the Bathmate, which is nuts. I don't keep a measuring tape near my bed but I tried measuring myself a few minutes after getting up and my MSEG was just under 5.5", which is crazy big for me. Edema is minimal, so it's not just that. So yeah, just leaving the cock ring on overnight is my new favorite passive PE exercise. Really, it's a great way to start the day in general. It feels fantastic and it's a nice ego boost.

    The post-Bathmate routine (x100 jelqs, then put on the cock ring) is still great. Keeps it pumped for a bit. Minimal edema.

    Lastly, when wearing the cock ring throughout the day, I feel like my dick's default flaccid size is just... bigger. Like, it's always just a tiny bit larger than it would typically be. I don't think it's just edema but it's hard to tell.

    That's all. I know these are just temporary gains but maybe with time and the usual exercises I can turn them into cemented gains.

    The new core routine feels solid. I've been trying some other stuff that's worth mentioning but I feel a bit scattered this morning so I'll try to organize my thoughts. Sorry in advance for the long post but here goes...


    Post-Bathmate Routine

    I'm no longer going to stretch or do fire goat rolls after the Bathmate. They're good for reducing edema but they also drain the blood out and reverse the pumping effect. So....

    After using the Bathmate, my goal is to,
    • Reduce edema, i.e. the fluid between the outside of the tunica and the skin.
    • Maintain the pumping effect, i.e. the blood that's been pulled into the tissues within the tunica.


    Here's what I'm experimenting with:
    • After the Bathmate, I allow my erection to subside a little, then do x100 jelqs. GENTLY. This isn't really about exercising the smooth muscle, it's more about the massaging effect it has on the outside. I really think this helped move the edema out. Afterwards, I gave myself an erection and could see my veins clearly. When the puffy texture is gone and I can see my veins, that tells me the edema is gone.
    • After jelqing, I slip on a cock ring. Sizing is everything. I use a cock ring that allows for normal blood flow when I'm flaccid (without falling off) and is comfortable but firm after pumping or when I have an erection.


    I also find that doing this leaves me with a massive dick for a short while, so I just let it hang out of my underwear's fly (or go commando) to avoid discomfort and compression. After a little while, it'll return to normal-ish size and I can tuck it away.


    Cock Ring

    I want to emphasize that this is NOT first time I've done any of this. I'm reporting on what I did; I am not recommending this to anyone else. With long-term cock ring wear, get the right fit, err on the safe side, check often, don't wear it overnight until you've thoroughly tested the fit. Loss of blood circulation is very very bad.

    That said, I put the cock ring on after my Bathmate session (see above) and just kept it on for the rest of the day. I decided to keep it on overnight and woke up to some ridiculous morning wood. I took it off in the morning but put it back on after today's usual core routine.

    The results? It's noticeably bigger. My EQ is a little lower -- just a bit more difficult than usual to get as hard as I like during my routine. Edema is minimal so far. I'll keep experimenting with this.


    Discoloration

    Lastly, I was searching for something topical that might help with the discoloration and saw Aloe Vera come up. Since I've got a bottle of that already, I figured I'd start applying it. I've got some crappy Walgreens stuff, not the 100% Aloe kind, and it dries a little sticky so it's not great as a jelqing lube. I've ordered some good stuff that has Aloe Vera as well as Manuka Honey and some other stuff.

    I've also ordered some lotion with Kojic Acid in it but I plan to try it with extreme caution. I'll do a light spot application near the base, then I'll give it a few days to monitor for any side effects. It seems relatively safe, but hey, it's my dick we're talking about here. My primary concerns are skin irritation and increased sensitivity.


    ...Anyways, that's it for now. I swear my posts just keep getting longer. Hope this is of value to somebody. Have a good weekend, guys.

    Made a few adjustments to my routine today and I think I like it. Changes are in bold:

    - Warm up (5-10 min)
    - Stretch (5 min)
    - x3 set of the following:
    - Air pump (5 min)
    - Jelq (x100)
    - Clamping (10 min)- Warm down (5-10 min)

    In short, I added x3 sets of air pumping and changed my clamping routine from x2 sets of 15 min to x3 sets of 10 min. I don't think I was seeing much benefit from clamping longer than 10 minutes at a time. I Kegel/RK during both the air pumping and clamping. With this additional pumping, I may also cut back on the Bathmate.

    I've wanted to add the air pump back in to my routine but it used to give me edema. I've fixed that by limiting single sessions to 5 minutes at 5-7hg. I like the small but noticeable additional expansion I get from adding the air pump. By the end of the routine, it's got a little extra heft. It's important to allow a little time after pumping so that my erection can return to the 40-70% range that's best (and safest) for jelqing. I also start the jelqing process slowly. An extra benefit of doing it in this order is that I think jelqing helps remove edema.

    The only apparent downside of this revised routine is that it takes me over an hour to complete. And because I'm trying to focus solely on PE while I'm doing it, it's not like I'm using that time to multitask. For now, I enjoy it so much that I don't really care, plus when I'm done I feel pretty energized. Also, it helps that I'm self-employed and control my own schedule.

    NumberSix (and my profile pic) refers to The Prisoner, starring Patrick McGoohan, a TV series that aired in 1967 (well before my time). It's about an ex-intelligence agent who is abducted and taken the "Village" where the people who run it repeatedly try to break his will in order to extract information. It's a bizarre and fantastic show but probably not everybody's cup of tea. They did a remake of it in 2009 but it sucked. Interestingly, McGoohan's other (more popular) show called Danger Man (renamed Secret Agent in the US) was one of the inspirations for the Austin Powers parody, so you're not far off.

    Thanks, glad you like the routine. I'm cautiously optimistic. Air pumps are fun to use and more convenient than the Bathmate for sure. The only reason I'm opting for the Bathmate instead is that it seems to give me less edema.

    I've been debating how to actually do a valid measurement. My most recent starting measurement was done after a week of rest, which I feel gives me my most honest "cemented" measurement. I may do that again to ensure an apples-to-apples comparison but I'm not sure when I'll be taking that kind of break.

    Just to give you some sort of answer, I measured a few minutes after finishing my jelq/clamp routine this morning and it was just over 7.75" BPEL, a solid 5.5" BEG, and just under 5" MSEG. That is a generous, definitely-not-official measurement and I think most of it can be attributed to the fact that I'm actively doing PE. I suspect my cemented measurement is going to take a while to change but as long as I'm moving in the right direction, it's all good.
