Does penis training actually work?
Well, its common knowledge that if you want to keep any part of your body healthy and strong you need to train it regularly…
Bigger chest? Do some pushups!
More muscular legs? Find the squat rack!
Stronger erections? Um….Penis curls?
Well, not quite!
But just like any other body part, your penis can benefit greatly from specific and careful training.
Jelqing (pronounced Jel-King) is a form of massage that increases blood flow to the penis…a topic covered in detail in my free ebook.
And this is a good thing.
Extra blood forces nutrients into the penile tissue, and more nutrients = healthier tissue.
The massage itself may also break down deposits of calcium that reduce blood flow into your package.
So is it the same as masturbation?
No. In fact, it should only be performed on a soft or semi-erect penis. If it leads to ejaculation, you’re doing it wrong!
Specialists describe it as “a method of enlarging the penis through a series of physical exercises that serve to enhance the circulation and pressure of the blood flow to the penis.” (1)
The results? A stronger, longer lasting erection. Not bad for a bit of massage, right?
How are jelqing exercises performed?
There are two stages. Warming up and the massage itself.
The Jelqing Warm up:
You will need to open up the blood vessels in your penis to allow smooth blood flow. This can be done either by sitting in a warm bath or by wrapping your penis in a hot towel for a few minutes.
Next, The Jelqing Massage:
Apply some lubrication to your penis to reduce friction….
Making an “OK” sign with your right hand, gently squeeze the shaft and slowly (taking about three seconds) slide your hand towards the head of your penis.
Once you reach the ridge below the head, stop!
Before you release your right hand, start again at the top of your shaft with your left hand. This keeps the blood inside your penis.
Repeat 50 times.
This technique can be repeated every day but don’t overdo it! 50 or so repetitions is plenty enough, unless your goal is enlargement, and not penis training specifically..
Like any other training, too much can be worse than not enough. The key here is consistency, moderation and time.
Penis pumps have been around for quite a while, but their biggest moment of glory was probably in the movie “Austin Powers.”
“Quartermaster Clerk: One Swedish-made penis enlarger.
Austin Powers: That’s not mine!”
Many men believe that penis pumps are an embarrassing sex toy that should be hidden in the back of the closet.
However, the research says otherwise.
In fact, Urologists (Penis Doctors) often use them to treat erectile problems (2)
A penis pump is also known as a Vacuum Constriction Device (VCD). It typically consists of a cylinder with a ring around the bottom and a seal at the top connected to a pump.
Once placed over the penis, the pump is used to remove the air in the chamber creating a vacuum.
This forces blood to rush into the penis.
Do they really work?
At the end of one trial with 216 subjects completed over 29 months, the researchers wrote this…
“Quality of erection was evaluated for hardness, length, and circumference, and with satisfaction greater than 90%. Furthermore, excellent initial results appear durable in most patients.”(3)
Yes, you read that right… 90% plus. Not too shabby.
As a drug-free and long-standing method of increasing blood flow in the penile tissue, a penis pump is an essential tool in any penis trainer’s toolbox.
Deer exercise is an ancient Chinese sexual health technique that originated from the Taoist Qi Gong.
Ancient Chinese medicine practitioners took many of their cues from the nature around them.
The deer was highly regarded for its sexual vitality and observing their behavior was the basis for the formation of this exercise.
Luckily this exercises doesn’t involve drinking a tea of ground up deer’s penis. But if you’re into that kind of thing, hey, I’m not judging you!
The exercise is noted for its ability to strengthen the prostate and increase the frequency of nocturnal erections.
And how do they accomplish this?
A healthy prostate is an integral part of maintaining a strong erection. An added bonus is that the direct stimulation of your testicles can increase sperm levels.
With most of us carrying mini microwaves in the form of smartphones in our pockets day after day – anything that increases sperm levels is worth trying.
Finally…when you think about wood right before you sleep, you often dream about wood….
And you increase the odds that the dream will happen when you add physical stimulation, such as deer exercise to the equation.
Ok, I’m convinced. How do I do it?
Deer exercise is performed in two distinct stages…
There’s a reason “rutting like deer” is a common expression. Make deer exercise a nightly habit and you’ll find out why for yourself!
I’ll wrap this section up with an email Mark received from an 80 year old man who has developed this habit to great affect.
I’ve been doing the DEER exercise for over a year now. I am 80 in June and I regularly wake up in the night with rock hard erections.
I accomplished this with deer exercise and pelvic floor training.
You may have heard of women being told to “tone their pelvic floor.” This training is commonly recommended as a natural method to tighten up the vagina and strengthen bladder control.
But you don’t have to have a vagina to benefit from these exercises! Pelvic floor training in men will directly train the muscles required for a strong erection.
The European Foundation of Sexology describes the benefits like this:
“The tonic contraction of ischiocavernosum muscles during erection is necessary for the rigidity of the penis… this is necessary not only for the rigidity but also for the maintenance of erection.
Only with the (pelvic floor) exercises is it possible to train the ischiocavernosum muscle.”
This training could reduce the post-ejaculatory refractory period that increases in every man with age and could facilitate the erection after a first ejaculation”(4)
Translation? Stronger erections and quicker recovery after sex.
Who is this relevant for?
No matter your age, every man should be taking steps to strengthen their pelvic floor to ensure proper penile function.
Mark has written extensively about this topic on this page.
A source of easy laughs in Sitcoms…morning erections can sometimes be embarrassing.
But it’s one embarrassing bodily function that you want to keep.
Why is it a good thing?
Having an erection first thing in the morning is a signal that your hormonal and vascular systems are in order. Not only is morning wood completely normal; it is essential for maintaining peak erectile function.
That’s a small price to pay for having to wait five minutes to pee!
In some men, erectile problems are entirely “psychological”, meaning it’s all in their head.
One of the ways doctors determine if a mans ED issues are in fact psychological, is to find out whether the patient regularly has an erection in the morning:
“Nocturnal penile tumescence (morning erection) monitoring remains the best single non-invasive examination to differentiate organic from psychogenic impotence” (5)
If you wake up with a partially or non-erect penis, you may benefit from stimulating yourself to an erection before getting out of bed.
Studies have shown that morning erections maintain proper erectile function through oxygenation. Without this, the penile tissue can succumb to gradual fibrosis that causes hardening and aging – making it harder to get and maintain an erection.
And it doesn’t end there, as there are hormonal benefits too…
In the morning, testosterone levels are the highest they will be all day. Stimulating an erection first thing in the morning will help boost your testosterone levels, making it easier to get an erection later in the day – when it might come in more useful!
As you’ve seen from these tips, penis training isn’t just about improving your erectile strength. Proper erectile function is an indication of your overall health!
By regularly training your body to produce stronger erections you’ll be working to improve your health from the inside out.
One final thing…
If you haven’t been waking up morning wood consistently, I suggest you read this article.
