A System for Safe PE
Driving a car is risky. Everyone knows someone who has had a serious accident. Some of us have dangerous jobs or live in places that are far from safe. If those aren’t enough, we often add risk as a leisure activity.
We don’t think of these things as perilous or we might never do them. Even if we consider the risks we are sure bad outcomes will happen to someone less capable than us. As a whole, we humans are pretty bad at judging risk and pretty sure that we can overcome the odds. This problem is worse the younger we are. It’s not that older people are more clever, it’s just that the older you get the more times you’ve experienced situations that almost kill you.
So, if we are all agreed that humans as a whole and young humans particularly are quite bad at assessing potential for harm, how does this apply to PE? In PE we apply force to change our penis: too much and we end in injury, too little and nothing happens. It’s hard to tell where we are in that force curve. New PEers can’t estimate the risk but advanced PEers tend to be playing with greater force and potential risk.
Your favorite advanced PEer who seems to have everything worked out and has gained massively has also injured himself. He may not have talked about it or may have mentioned it in passing. He may have detailed it in a thread you’ve never seen. Injury is normal. Recovery from injury is also normal. As in most things in life, if you play it safe you get nothing.
If you are a beginner, remember that part of learning is screwing up. One day you’ll be the advanced PEer who has injured himself and recovered and carried on. So, when you injure yourself don’t let it bring you down, treat it as a teachable moment. Injury is annoying. It will prevent you from PEing and stall progress but you’re also training yourself to not do it again.
Let’s look at some of the ways that injuries occur and how to avoid them.
When you first start PE, you have to concentrate on what you are doing to maintain form. This can be hard if you are using visualization or porn to maintain an erection. It’s easy to focus on whatever is maintaining your erection and away from the actual PE.
As your PE journey progresses, the mechanical side becomes obvious and repetitive. Boring. Your attention will wander.
Injury happens when you aren’t paying attention. Notice your mind wandering and bring it back.
If you add equipment, often you can PE while doing other things. You might set up your hanger or pump and then read or watch TV. This can work out but also it can lead to empty sessions, if you don’t notice your pump losing pressure or don’t notice that the hanging is a little too easy on your penis to have effect. It can also lead to injury as you won’t notice when things are going wrong until they are really going wrong.
This brings us to a very important point. When you injure yourself, stop PEing. You can’t stop PEing if you don’t notice. Some injuries like vein breaches are painless. It’s quite possible to carry on if you haven’t noticed and make a situation worse.
It’s important to PE is good light. If your penis is turning all shades of the rainbow or bulging out of one side and you can’t see it because you’ve gone for romantic lighting, you might miss the injury as it occurs. You should also be checking around your penis visually as you PE, the underside of your dick is just as likely to get injured.
Not all injuries are visible. It’s quite possible you’ll finish a session and feel fine and then notice some pain later. It’s reasonable to feel mild pain or shooting pains after a session. That might be associated with hitting the right spot. If you’re still feeling twinges by the time of your next session, skip the session.
If you are injured, keep positive. It’s quite normal for the penis to not want to become erect if it’s injured. It’s quite normal for injuries to look or feel worse after the fact (this is the body repairing). Most injuries will resolve themselves within a week or two but you might still need to be careful: it’s very easy to injure the same area again.
- Pay attention
- PE in good light
- Inspect your penis during and after a session
- Take note of pain
- Don’t PE if you are injured
