Thunder's Place

The big penis and mens' sexual health source, increasing penis size around the world.

Dazed and confused. Still.

Dazed and confused. Still.

My personal PE saga continues, with more plot twists than my feeble brain is able to decipher.
I’ve been going for girth only for the past 4 months. Hard. Lately I’ve been wondering if maybe too hard. Honestly, I’ve seen no signs of overworking… my erections are harder than ever, and I never feel too fatigued (but I’ve always been a workhorse). My cock is more vascular than ever, and my flaccid size is longer and thicker than 4 months ago.
I measured for the first time in nearly 2 months about 10 days ago, fully expecting to see some sort of girth gain… not expecting alot, just something. What I got was a big fat zero.
I was floored. I expected so much to see new growth… I’d been working so hard, and my erect dick even looked and felt a bigger to me. But the tape measure doesn’t lie.
I decided to take a week or two off, read as much as I possibly could here, and try to figure out for myself what was wrong and how I could fix it.

Ala wadzilla, I decided to start into a relatively easy, slowly building routine over several weeks and months. Tonight, 10 days after my last PE workout, I began.

I warmed up thoroughly. 10 minutes hot water, with some light stretches after the first 5. Then 5 minutes more intense, but not heavy stretching. I put some porn in the VCR, lubed up, and started with some very light jelqing, trying to work myself up to the right amount of erection, then gradually started to increase intensity.
Not more than 2 minutes in, at a point where the intensity of each stroke was still quite light, I looked down at my dick, and was horrified. Dozens of red dots already covering the shaft, and 6 or 7 bigger purple spots towards the end of the shaft.
I’ve gotten the red dots many times, especially after a day off, but I haven’t gotten the purple spots since I began 4 months ago. And even then, it took MUCH longer, and much heavier intensity for them to show up, and I’ve never gotten more than one at a time.
My dick looks like it’s been through a meat grinder.

I think I already know what this means, but I hoped some of the veterans here might have some insight that I don’t. If not, well, at least I got the opportunity to vent a little frustration.

Even a week off can cause those damn dots to come back. I was getting them consistantly when doing Pan’s, no matter how long.


1999: 6" EBPL X 5.25" EG ~ 2001: 7" EBPL X 5.75" EG ~ 2003: 7.25" EBPL X 6" EG

Current (Jan 2013): 7.125 EBPL X 6"EG ~ GOAL = 7+" (anything more is fine) EBPL X 6.5" EG

I have had that happen before, especially during my pumping days, after returning from a break. I am probably wrong, but I thought about it this way. When you take a break, your cock starts to do some serious healing and forms a lot of new tissue in doing so. Now this new tissue is great and may be adding to your size, but since it is new, it is not that strong yet, and certainly not jelq conditioned at all, so the capillaries supplying blood to it are easily ruptured.

You don’t see too much new damage after a regular day or two break, because not that much new tissue has been allowed to grow. Probably you wouldn’t see that much damage if you had taken a longer break of say 4 to 6 weeks, because the new tissue would have matured, but at 10 days, you might have caught it at the most vulnerable point in the regrowth process.

The primary goal of PE should be to make your penis as healthy as possible in both form and function. If you do that, increased size will follow.

That’s kinda what I was thinking as well. The severity of the dotting/spotting under such minimal pressure really threw me, though. This, combined with the lack of results despite months of hard labor.

The way I see it, at its most basic level there are only two things you can do wrong in PE:
1) Undertrain - too infrequently, too briefly, or incorrectly/without enough intensity
2) Overtrain - not enough rest, too intense, or too long.

I’m sure I’m doing *something* wrong. Since I’m 99% sure I haven’t been undertraining, I’ve got to believe that I’ve been working at it too hard.
As gprent suggested, I’ve come to the conclusion that I probably need to take at least another month off. #%*@!
