Exercise

The Dry Jelq for a big penis is one of the primary penis enlargement exercises. Jelqing forces more blood into the corpora cavernosa which will expand and stretch the cell walls to allow larger quantities of blood to enter the penis. Jelqing is mostly considered a girth exercise, but some have reported substantial length gains from it. For more information and background on this technique, see our overview page:

Video Dry Jelq | Exercise for a big penis

Background

Dry Jelq is a variation of the Wet Jelq, which basically only differs in that no lubricant is used in the execution. Dry Jelqing is used much less frequently than Wet Jelqing and there are always different convictions regarding the differences in the effects of the two approaches. Sometimes some users report a stronger expansion of the penis circumference with Dry Jelqing, but at the same time it is also suspected that this impression is not necessarily caused by a stronger expansion of the erectile tissue, but possibly rather by the increased friction on the skin (and its irritation). In any case, it should be noted that Dry Jelqs puts much more stress on the skin of the shaft and therefore one should make sure that the Jelq movement is carried out slowly. The risk of injury (in the form of overstraining the skin of the shaft or the glans) is much higher with Dry Jelq, which is why you should first gain extensive experience with Wet Jelqs (with lubricant) before using Dry Jelqs. Furthermore, it should be noted that Dry Jelq is basically only an extension of Jelqing, as it can still be done in three different ways: Within the framework of Wet Jelq (mid-EQ Jelqing), low-EQ Jelqing and high-EQ Jelqing.

Workout

Dry Jelqs require an erect penis, whereby the intensity of the prevailing erection must be adjusted to the desired version (low-EQ, mid-EQ or high-EQ Jelqing). In general, no lubricants of any kind are used during the workout.

Additional Information

The following notes treat common questions regarding this exercise and provide further explanations of its fine-tuning and possible modifications.

Increased traction on the skin:

The Dry Jelq automatically ensures a significantly increased friction on the skin by avoiding any lubricants. On the one hand, this increases the strain on the upper layers of tissue, on the other hand it leads to a much firmer grip. Because of this, one should be very careful not to exert too much tension during the Jelq movement. The increased traction of the grip otherwise transfers the force of the hand movement mainly to the base of the penis, which then quickly forces the Dry Jelqing to pull an Erect Stretch. This, in turn, would not support the desired Jelq effect, but would merely put unnecessary strain on the ligaments (which then results in additional risks of injury).

Intensity regulation during Jelqing:

As basic as the Jelq exercise is, finding an appropriate execution technique can be complicated. Especially beginners often find it difficult to choose a suitable Jelqing intensity - and then often take too much of a precautionary approach. To find a more suitable technique, however, it must first be clear what options are available to regulate the Jelq intensity. There are basically three possibilities: the current erection intensity that prevails when performing Jelq, the pressure of the grip when performing Jelq and the speed of Jelq performance. The erection intensity (also called EQ) is the most important factor: Low-EQ Jelqs range from up to 60% erection intensity, Mid-EQ Jelqs range from 60% to 90% erection intensity, while High-EQ Jelqs work with maximum erection intensity. The pressure of the OK-grip should, in turn, only slightly surround the shaft and under no circumstances squeeze the erectile tissue. Meanwhile, the speed is decisive for the risk of injury: If a Jelq is performed with too high an EQ and/or too much pressure at high speed, the risk of injury (e.g. bleeding, haematomas) increases considerably, since the intensity of the Jelq has a comparatively sudden and jerky effect on the tissue. If in doubt, one should therefore first execute relatively slow Jelqs (2-3 seconds per Jelq) before accelerating them a little. In general, you should never need less than 1 second per Jelq unless the pressure of the grip or the EQ is really low.

Intimate Shave:

An intimate shave is useful for Jelqing in that it prevents disturbing, longer hair from getting into the OK-grip and then disturbing the flow of the exercise. Of course it is not absolutely necessary to remove all pubic hairs completely (e.g. by a wet shave), but to trim them to a sufficiently short length (e.g. with a simple short hair trimmer).

First tunica, then erectile tissue:

In the context of a workout program, if in doubt, one should always first do a Basic Stretch and then the Jelqing. This guarantees that the increased blood influence in the corpus cavernosum through Jelqing does not block or reduce the effect of the stretching (the stretching of the tunic). In addition, the subsequent Jelqing promotes the blood circulation of the penis, which is reduced during stretching. If possible, not too much time should pass between stretching and Jelqing - also in order not to shorten the regeneration phases between the workout sessions unnecessarily.
