    Measurement Monday. I started this last week with more intense sessions. Eventually I felt the effects of that and dialed it back. I'm not sure what the effects will be on today's measurement. If I can hit that 5.5" MSEG again, that'd be amazing. If not, also totally okay. I wasn't even expecting to see 5.5" this year.

    Oh, and for the sake of transparency and consistency, I should note that my standardized warm-up before these measurements is as follows: rice sock warm-up, 5 minutes stretching, 100 jelqs, 1 minute squeeze. Then I shake it all out, give it a minute, and get myself as hard as possible for the measurement. I'm not sure if this skews anything or if there's a better time to measure but that's how I'm doing it for now. So, that said...

    BPEL: 8"
    MSEG: 5.5"
    BEG: 5.75"

    Alright, so two weeks at 5.5" MSEG... nice! BEG is down a little but that tends to fluctuate. I'll probably go a little light this week. I just get the sense that my dick is in recovery/growth mode and doesn't need a bunch of punishment. As always, I'll keep the same volume but dial back the intensity.

    Well, um... my goal was 8" x 5.5" and this is it. Unsurprisingly, I've already sorta moved the goal post of myself. I'm not sure if I can gain any more length and I'm not sure it's that important, but I definitely have my eye on 6" MSEG now. I don't have any sense of urgency about it but I figure I'll just keep doing what I'm doing while it seems to be working.

    Eventually, I see myself shifting my focus from size to other things like maximizing EQ, lasting longer, multiple orgasms, etc.

    This may seem obvious to some, or even obviously wrong to others who may know more about PE physiology than I do, but here's why I think my routine is working...


    In the morning I start by warming up with a rice sock and I make sure my office is nice and warm. This gets my penis tissue into a more elastic state and ensures that there's good blood flow, which is essential since jelqing and squeezing requires elasticity and engorgement (blood flow) to work. In the afternoon and evening sessions, I just try to make sure I'm fairly warm.

    I stretch for about 5 minutes, which is less essential to my routine but I'm still holding out hope for a little more length so I keep doing it. I don't do more than 5 minutes most of the time because I've found that doing it longer (or too hard) seems to shock my penis and have the opposite effect. A slow stretch, gradually increasing in intensity (but only up to a point) is what I try for. I don't bother stretching for my afternoon and evening sessions. Maybe if I get more serious about length again, I might stretch more often.

    The meat and potatoes of my routine are the sets I do: 100 jelqs, 1 minute of squeezing, repeat. I do this x6 in the morning, x3 in the afternoon and x3 before bed. I think the jelqing creates elasticity and minor tissue damage (like working out at the gym), which prompts my body to repair the tissue later. When jelqing, I've noticed that I can adjust my grip (always overhand for me) to put more pressure on various parts of the shaft. Looking at the shaft head-on, I usually hit the 6 o'clock position (underside), the 5 and 7 o'clock positions, and the 3 and 9 o'clock positions. I just alternate, depending on what feels like it needs work. Jelqing creates a little expansion on its own, but not that much for me.

    That's where the squeezes come in. After I've loosen everything up with a set of jelqs, I force my tissue and the surrounding tunica to expand with squeezes. I'm not sure how to explain this but when I sqeeze, I often target certain segments of my penis. I might hold the bottom and middle if I want to force more expansion towards the end, or might hold the bottom and end if I want to force expansion in the middle. Sometimes I'll hold the base and lightly bend the shaft, or carefully rotate it in a cranking type of motion. Or I might hold the middle and carefully push straight down with my palm on the head, which creates a very strong outward expansion. All this needs to be done carefully. All these methods of squeezing are meant to work on the tunica. As I've noted before, I think I have a pretty thick and resistant tunica, which is why I focus on this.

    When I'm done with the jelq/squeeze sets, I warm down with a rice sock. I usually change out of my PJs and into my workout clothes, warm the rice sock back up, and just tuck it in my underwear for a half-hour while I do some work at my desk.

    When I shower mid-day after my workout, I use the Bathmate while showering. I keep it on when I exit the shower and brush my teeth. All-in-all it's on for about 20 minutes at high pressure. I think this stretches my tunica more than any other exercise possibly can. I used to use the Bathmate a LOT but barely jelqed at all compared to my current routine. The results were almost zero. I may have been stretching my tunica but without the jelqing, I don't think I was stimulating any growth. My EQ sucked and when I'd stop using the Bathmate, my size would just shrink back to normal.

    Lastly, there's the cock ring. I wear it while sleeping, usually take it off for an hour or so in the morning, do my morning session, put it back on, take it off for my afternoon session, put it back on, take it off for 2-3 hours in the evening, do my night session, and put it back on overnight. The cock ring does wonders for me overnight, sometimes giving me an extra 1/2" girth on my morning wood. During the day I think it helps keep my penis in a slightly expanded state. I think it's ideal to remain slightly expanded as much of the time as possible so that while the penis is continuously healing itself, it's doing so in a larger than usual state, hopefully cementing that increased size.

    Just some random Tuesday morning thoughts on PE. Measured an MSEG of 5.5" again this morning. Niiice.

    Measurement Monday. I always try to stick to the same volume of exercises (except if unable while traveling) but sometimes I adjust the intensity (grip strength, etc). This week I increased the intensity a little since the previous week was a lighter one due to travel. I definitely felt the difference and had to dial it back again by the end of the week. No issues, just going by feel.

    I'm not sure if it's related but this morning (thanks to the cock ring I wear while sleeping) I woke up with a thick one. I rolled out of bed and measured a 6" MSEG. Not sure what the base was but probably an extra 1/4". Temporary, of course, but it felt great. I took the cock ring off about 1.5 hours ago but I'm worried that today's measurement is going to be skewed by this. Well, let's see...

    BPEL: 8"
    MSEG: 5.5"
    BEG: 5.875"

    So yeah, BIG CAVEAT on this one. I think the cock ring effect sorta invalidates this measurement. I think I could get to 5.5" MSEG by the year's end, maybe, but I don't think I'm there yet.

    Not sure what else to add. I'm staying the course and it's paying off. Feels good, man.

    Measurement Monday. Everything down there feels pretty good this morning but my expectations are tempered due to the modified routine I've been doing for almost a week while traveling.

    BPEL: 8"
    MSEG: 5.375"
    BEG: 5.75"

    Wow, okay. I mean, just holding the line was more than I expected but that was a solid measurement. Every number in that measurement was conservative. Like, 8+, 5.375+, 5.75+ really. It makes no sense to me. I say it every time now but I really do expect that one of these weeks I'll move (temporarily) in the opposite direction. It's can't just be up only, forever, right?

    As mentioned, I was traveling for the last week, visiting a close friend a couple states north of where I live. It's colder there and that made me realize how spoiled I am here and how important a warm environment is to me when doing PE. I'm very glad I brought my rice sock this time.

    Funny story... I also brought my Bathmate and wouldn't you know it, TSA decided to check my bag. I just about died when the TSA guy pulled out the plastic bag with my Bathmate in it. Fortunately the bag was solid green, not clear. He looked in the bag and calmly placed it back in my suitcase. He must've felt bad because he explained to me after that he needed to find my bluetooth speaker and thought he saw it in a bag on the x-ray machine, hence looking in my Bathmate bag. At least he had the sense not to pull my Bathmate out and wave it around or something. I guess they've probably seen it all. Oh and after that, he also inspected my rice sock. He ended up swabbing it and running the swab through that analyzer that detects explosives or whatever. Lol, what an experience.

    Hey Dustrust, thanks for the kind words and I'm glad that you've gotten something out of this log. I see you've got your own log and it sounds like you're dedicated to making improvements in your life through PE, better health, etc. It's tough when you find yourself in a deep groove, especially when you're just starting to dig yourself out. But man, once you get some momentum and start chalking up a few small victories, it starts to feel really good. Stack up those small victories until they turn into big changes, man -- that's the way. I'll be rooting for you.

    Well, goddamn. Christmas comes early this year. If past is any indication of the future, there's a good chance I'll bounce around between 5.25" and 5.375" MSEG before holding the latter consistently. But this is a milestone. 5.5", I'm coming for you next.

    I'll be traveling again tomorrow, visiting a friend until the end of the week. I have my own AirBnB so I expect to have two opportunities per day for my routine (morning and night). Morning will probably be my usual 6 sets of x100 jelqs and one minute squeezes plus the Bathmate. Night will probably be 3-6 sets, no Bathmate. This time I'm planning to bring the rice sock because I really like doing the warm-up and warm-down.

    Nothing else to report. Dick getting bigger, life is a mess. That about sums it up.

    Just so I'm not leaving anything out, I've been thinking I should clarify what I mean by a "squeeze" because that term doesn't really fully describe the exercise I'm doing. What I do varies a bit but here's a description:
    1. Get fully hard, as close to 100% as possible.
    2. Give it one last hard kegel and then apply a strong grip to the base with one hand. Doesn't matter which.
    3. I tend to reverse kegel, then give it yet another strong kegel. Right as I kegel, I release my grip, force the extra blood into my dick with the kegel, then reapply the strong grip.
    4. Sometimes to maximize the pressure, I slide my hard grip up just an inch or so and repeat step 3, using my other hand to grab behind the one I moved up.
    5. I repeat this a few times until I can really see some expansion, very apparent veins, etc.
    6. I hold it, occasionally repeating step 3 to maintain that maximum pressure.
    7. Often but not always, towards the end of the squeeze as I'm losing a little pressure, I create some intense outward expansion by moving my grip up to mid-shaft and GENTLY bending my PARTIALLY expanded shaft. I focus on the part of that shaft that has the least girth, where I think my tunica is the toughest. Another method I use is to hold it mid-shaft and push down on the head, which creates intense outward expansion.
    Hopefully that makes sense. All of this above, ESPECIALLY step 6 is relatively HIGH RISK. Do not fuck around with this sort of thing unless you've been doing PE for a while and know your limits. I seem to have a very tough tunica that can tolerate a lot of stress, so this stuff seems to help me break through that limitation. If your tunica isn't as thick, this might be too much and could cause injury.

    Again, I want to be clear that this sort of thing -- specifically, applying manual stress like bending or pushing while even partially erect -- is how some guys cause serious and possibly permanent damage. This is information about what I do, not advice about what you should do. Be extremely careful when doing anything like this.

    Anyways, one other note on the cock ring I've been using. I wear it almost 24/7 but have noticed that it seems optimal to take it off for about an hour or two twice a day. I find that this lets any slight edema clear out.

    My routine is otherwise unchanged and I'm pretty optimistic that I miiight hit a solid 5.375" MSEG by the end of the year. That'd be a nice holiday gift.

    Measurement Monday.

    During my 6 day trip, I did two sessions per day. In the morning I had time to use the Bathmate while showering and did 3 sets of 100 jelqs and 30-60 second squeezes. At night, I did another 3 sets. I wore the cock ring while sleeping but infrequently during the day. The overall quality of my sessions seemed lacking. I was a little rushed at times and I really missed being able to warm up before and warm down after. So... I've been sorta dreading this measurement because I feel like I might have halted my momentum or even reversed it. Well, here goes...

    BPEL: 8"
    MSEG: 5.25"
    BEG: 5.5"

    Hey, I'll take it. I'm not sure what's going on with my BEG but since I'm focused on MSEG right now, I'm happy to see that it's holding up. It was a strong 5.25" too. It's funny that I did basically no stretching during my trip and yet my length is unchanged. I'm glad that my BPEL has been so consistent but I also wonder if there's really anything I can do to change it. I'd still enjoy seeing another half inch or more added to that.


    This log is mostly just me talking into a void and I appreciate that about it. I know it gets a few views and the occasional response but the general anonymity is welcome because I can write whatever I want.

    So here's something I want to get off my chest. At some point, probably within a year, my wife and I will sell our house and move into separate spaces. Maybe in the same city, maybe significantly far apart. We don't have kids but we have two dogs that we're super attached to and I'm not sure how we'll resolve that if we move far apart.

    We've been together almost 15 years and are deeply attached to each other but something was always a little off. Then a few years ago she said she was attracted to women so we opened the relationship up for her to date. She gradually became more certain that she wanted to live separately. Now I get the sense that for once in her life, maybe she needs complete independence. I think she just wants a clean start so she can figure out who she really is without her past dictating it to her.

    It's all amicable and we're trying to navigate it together but I often go through my day feeling like I've been kicked in the gut. I know a lot of it isn't really about me but it's hard not to feel a profound sense of loss. I'm just trying to enjoy our life together while it's still intact but damn, it hurts at times.

    What does this have to do with PE? Not a goddamn thing, except that it's pretty hard to will myself into a raging hard-on for my PE exercises when all this is going on. It's nice that I've had some recent success with PE, although it feels like a somewhat trivial (and perhaps ironic) consolation prize at times. But hey, right now I'll take a win where I can get it.

    Anyways, if any other guys reading this are going through some relationship stuff, I feel you. Hang in there.

    When I wear the cock ring (which I'm now doing consistently), sometimes I wake up with massive morning wood. This morning was one of those times and I was able to take a measurement before I lost it. My MSEG was 5.75". Not a typo... 5.75" MSEG. I don't know if I get that even after pumping with the Bathmate. I measured a hour later and was still over 5.5". Wild.

    So, if you're wondering whether wearing a cock ring at night can do anything, my experience is absolutely yes. If you like long-duration, passive exercises, then this is one to consider. As I've always said, testing the fit for safety is important before wearing it over any long period, particularly while sleeping.

    I sleep for a solid 7-8 hours, so over that long period my dick is gradually expanding. Plus, I would assume that at night my body is healing, replacing damaged tissue, growing, so I wonder if doing so while in this expanded state is helping to cement that larger size. Maybe. Who knows.

    In any case, my wife initiated sex a couple nights ago and my dick was finally willing to hang in there for the duration. We fucked for a good 1.5 hours and yes, my recent gains thanks to PE made a big difference. Although I'm not quite at my 5.5" MSEG goal, I feel like I'm already in the promised land. She can barely fit it in her mouth but it's amazing to watch her try. My new favorite part of PIV sex is now the ever-lengthening period of time that it takes her to gradually work my dick all the way in. My second favorite is the intimacy of slow sex and watching her cum during penetration. I feel like I can do so much more with my dick now. Manual and oral sex are still a big part of my game and always will be, but it's awesome to have a larger dick as well.

    Keep working at it, guys. It can take years to reach your goals in PE but in my experience it's worth it.

    I hit 5.5" MSEG when measuring after my morning routine. I've been taking these quick, informal, post-routine measurements most days because I feel like it gives me an idea of how much expansion I'm achieving through my exercises.

    That measurement doesn't necessarily mean anything concrete but I'll admit it felt great to momentarily achieve my 8" x 5.5" goal.

    On a different note, the whole dysphoria thing is real. I mean, I found myself looking down at a solid 5.5" MSEG x 8" BPEL and thinking that it didn't look as thick as I'd imagined. In fact, I've found that as I've gained in girth but remained the same length, the length has looked less and less impressive to me as well. The truth is, I'll probably hit my goal someday and just keep going. Maybe I'll shoot for 6" x 9" or something.

    I guess it's important to keep in mind that it may never look as big as I'd like. That's just my mind fucking with me. I've got to measure with numbers, not my eyes. At some point, my plan is to dial back the exercises, maybe just continue with a few hundred jelqs a day for maintenance and as far as sexual development goes, focus on other things like lasting longer, multiple orgasms, etc. There's a lot more to good sex than a big dick.

    I'm psyched to see the same measurement as last week. Also, I feel like the 5.25" MSEG was a very solid measurement this week, even a bit conservative. I'm very happy with this.

    Pretty soon I'll be taking a week-long vacation with my wife and I'll have less time to do PE. I haven't decided on whether to take the Bathmate or not but I suppose there's no reason not to. Those TSA agents have surely seen their fair share of sex toys while scanning luggage. I'll probably have time in the morning to do about 3 sets of my usual routine (100 jelqs and a 30 second squeeze), then I'll do another 3 sets before bed, so 600 jelqs per day total. I feel like my current momentum is tied to my consistency, so I'm going to do my best to avoid any days off.

    Yeah, thanks. Not sure how long it will last but I'll ride the wave as long as I can.

    I feel like the biggest game changer for me was realizing that for me, avoiding rest days actually works better. I'm sure others benefit from rest days but for whatever reason, I seem to have to keep doing PE every day in order to get results.

    I'm pretty sure the one I use is just a generic silicone ring off Amazon. Just a cock ring , no balls. The ring is flat, roughly 15mm long and has some curvature at the edges, which helps avoid putting any sharp corners in contact with my skin. The fit snug enough to stay firmly in place when flaccid and tighter when erect.

    I've been wearing this thing almost all the time without any ill effects. I take it off for showers and when doing my PE routine. Fit is really important -- absolutely gotta keep an eye on things when starting off to make sure you're not cutting off circulation. Honestly, I think the biggest impact comes from wearing it at night but I also like having it on when I go the gym because I feel like it helps avoid the shrinkage I normally experience while working out. Not sure it's doing much the rest of the time, but it doesn't seem to hurt either so I leave it on.
