How to Jelq- 5 Easy Steps with Pictures

Jelqing is the most effective way add size to your manhood. Coupled with a water based pump, it’s the fastest way to get a thicker penis hands down. Here is a basic guide for newbies who want to start using this exercise right away.

*To learn more about the jelq like advanced techniques or how it works see the top right menu on this page or the exercise category. Before Jelqing, always start with a Warm Up.

Step 1: Rub down your penis with a quality lubricant. The best lubricant for Jelqing is one that wont dry out fast, allowing you to complete several strokes before needing a second application.  (I suggest astroglide)

Step 2: Give yourself a partial erection, 50%-70% of your full erect state.  Your penis should not be erect enough to have sex, but it should be erect enough to where you can feel blood moving in and out when you Kegel.

Step 3: With your dominant hand, make the “OK” gesture while wrapping your thumb and index finger around the base of your penis.  You should get as close to your pubic bone as possible.

Step 4: Squeeze the “OK” grip at the base, and slide your hand upwards towards the head of your penis.  You want enough pressure in your grip that you feel the squeeze, and feel the blood being forced upwards into the shaft and head of your penis.  If the grip is painful at all, you are squeezing to tight, or are using an improper gripping technique.

Step 5: Continue to the glands of your penis, and stop just under the outer mushroom edge of your penis glands (head).  You have just completed one Jelq.  Each stroke should take no longer than 3 seconds, and no less than 1 second.

From One Jelq to Jelqing: From here you want to alternate hands, keeping as much blood as possible in the penis while reapplying the OK grip with your other hand. Each stroke lasting no longer than three seconds, and gripping firmly enough to create pressure inside the penile shaft.

Basic Jelq- The OK Base Grip Basic Jelq- The OK Base Grip
Basic Jelq- Sliding OK Grip to Penile Glands Basic Jelq- Sliding OK Grip to Penile Glands
Basic Jelq- Completing the Jelq Stroke at Glands Basic Jelq- Completing the Jelq Stroke at Glands

Safe Jelqing Rules

  • Always use a lubricant! If you are circumcised, the amount of friction can cause damage unless you are uncircumcised.
  • Always “warm-up” for a few minutes to ensure you are 50-70% erect.
  • Never jelq while you have a full erection, this will damage your penis.
  • Never ejaculate while jelqing, the firm OK grip will prevent your semen discharge and create a painful situation.
  • If you are Uncircumsized, you need to read about the different variations of jelqing.

Five Minute Sessions

Once you get the hang of it, you should have no problem completing 100 Jelqs in 5 minutes. Use this simple routine for your first 30 days. You will immediately notice your erections are harder, and your penis will appear thicker and meatier.

  • Week 1: One 5 minute session – 100 strokes (100 Total)
  • Week 2: Two 5 minute sessions – 100 strokes each (200 Total)
  • Week 3: Two 5 minute sessions – 150 strokes each (300 Total)
  • Week 4: Two 10 minute sessions – 300 strokes each (600 Total)

    how long do i have to jelq to get a big result like 3.5 inches? because i will try it out if it is guarantied to work.

      It’s really dependent upon how often you jelq, and which techniques you apply. Jelqing adds length and girth, but primarily girth. To add more length check out exercises like the v-stretch. Those work to pull your tunica out from your body (aka your inner penis) and get you more length fast. Some guys can gain an inch inside of a month. Those are beginner gains though, and your growth will be much slower after your initial growth spurt.

            is it bad to jelq for about 3 times a day?

          • Gregory Lancaster

            Hey Alfred – As long as you are pain free, and free of any bruising you are safe. Jelq within reason, I think twice a day is ideal. Try replacing your other jelqing session with a v stretching session to add length.

          The basic stretch definitally will give you an increase in size, but remember dude it takes time! I went from 5.5in to 7.5in (see here) and thats awesome for me, but it took me 10 months!

    thank you allot for your help but i have a few more questions like will my Gaines from the V-stretch be permanent and with the v-stretch will i get a v shaped dick and if i do is there some way i could fix it. by the way yes i am looking to get longer. thank you for your time.

    Reply
    • Greg

      The gains become permanent over time, just like if you used sizegenetics. You will see immediate gains in the first month of performing the exercises though, and the immediate gains you see will become permanent over time.

      The V stretch wont reshape your penis, it’s just a way to apply pressure to the middle of your penis so you stretch more than just the base of the penis out. If you get immediate gains from the basic stretch, then the vstretch will add even more gains because you are spreading out where you are placing the tension.

      After you get pretty good at this, I recommend you check out the Male Edge or SizeGenetics ADS (All Day Extender). They basically allow you to perform a basic stretch all day long while you go about your day, giving you gains much faster. They aren’t required, but obviously the more frequently you are able to apply tension to your penis the faster you will see results.

      I hope that helps man, any other questions don’t hesitate to ask!

    Is Jelqing safeto undertake if you have a small penis ( ie 2 – 3 inches)?

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      Hey John, yea jelqing is safe with a smaller starting size. You will likely see a pretty fast increase in length and girth after jelqing and stretching for a few weeks. Its pretty common for guys with smaller starting sizes to get immediate gains from pulling out their “inner penis” as its called.

    How long after jelqing can I masterbate? Does masturbating an hour after undo the progress?

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      As a general rule you should wait 3-4 hours after jelqing before masturbating. You just stretched out your ligaments and after masturbating your penis tends to revert to turtle mode. You want that stretched and expanded state to stay for as long as possible.

    Is there any real difference between “dry” and “wet” jelqing? Which is a better technique if uncircumcised?

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      Hey Drew- Dry jelqing is only for Uncircumcised men. It’s accomplished by using the extra skin on the penis to move your grip up and down. Circumcised men will experience pain trying to perform a dry jelq, so always use a lubricant if you are circumcised!

      Lucky – There are a lotta ways you can grow your manhood. If you want to be longer you can check out a penis extender. If you want to be thicker try browsing for penis pumps. I only review products I personally own and use, so thats only two penis pumps right now. Maybe you are strapped for cash, if thats the case start with manual exercises like the jelq I explain here and some basic stretches.

To add length check out the Basic Stretch, its very easy to perform.

      You can Jelq as often as you like. I personally Jelq and use the Penomet twice a day. Once in the morning and once at night. It’s really increased my flaccid hang size which makes me feel a lot more confident when I’m naked and whatnot.

      The Key is Consistency. Start with once per day, and after a few weeks if you think you can fit more into your schedule do it.

      I don’t like to recommend herbal pills to much because so many guys have been ripped off by some trash product. Since you asked though, I have used a couple I like. Currently I am using Male Extra to improve bloodflow so Jelqing is easier and more beneficial. It works for me, but you do NOT need to use any herbal supplement to get results from jelqing. It just assists in improving your bloodflow.

        What about ginko bilobia it is said to help blood flow to the penis. This maybe something to look into for your blog it’s safe and cheap and backed by science and I don’t think Ron Jeremy ever did a commercial about it lol.

          haha that is something too man- I don’t think ginko biloba is gonna help with jelqing though since it primarily increases blood flow to your brain. (which is why it causes headaches in so many people)

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      You have to be semi erect during jelqing, you need the blood in your penis to expand the inner walls. The stretching can be done flaccid, so thats not a problem. Jelqing while flaccid will not produce any changes in girth.

      The same exercises that improve your erect size will also improve your flaccid size. Try Jelqing for 2-3 days and youll notice your flaccid penis hangs longer and thicker.

      Gaurav- I am NOT a doctor, and I am not qualified to dispense medical advice.

      That being said, You push the skin back and then grip your penis at the base, and proceed to jelq as shown in the pictures. Once you reach the head you loosen your grip enough to move your OK grip back to the base with just enough friction to drag back your skin. Does that make sense?

    Hello Sir Georgy,
    First of all, I’d really like to hank you for putting up this website to help all guys with all of their manhood all around the world, Thank You.
    I have read you’re instructions a couple of times to make sure I understand everything. I would just like to ask regarding the lotions. Is it okay if I use soup? Because i live in the middle of nowhere and the only thing i have is soup. Alot of people tell me that if you use soup to masturbate or jelq, then you’re dick would have an irritation, but i don’t seem to be having any irrigations at all? My dick seems to be completely fine after i jelq or masturate. Is it safe for me to use soup for jelqing? Does It pose any harm or long term effects? Will it have the same effects on my dick with soup then using lotion? Looking forward to you’re answer. Thanks again. You da man!

    • Gregory Lancaster

      Soap will work just fine as long as you are in a wet environment like in the shower. Make sure the soap is fragrance free, and try to get one that doesn’t dry out your skin to much. Some womens soap works well since they are generally packed full of moisturizers. Sometimes I use shampoo or conditioner in the shower- like you I don’t get irritation from anything really. As long as you are in the shower or bath, you can use almost any type of lubrication. :) Good question Hassan.

      You could damage your penis, or experience some type of injury. Warming up is as easy as getting a boner before performing the exercise. It’s the same as doing a stretch before running, you want to get blood into your muscles to prevent a sprain.

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      If you are jelqing properly you wont be able to jelq over the head of your penis. The blood you are forcing into your head should enlarge it, making it easy to stop at your penis head. If you are uncircumcised pull the skin back off your head before jelqing. I don’t think it will cause any damage, but you also wont be adding any size because you are not trapping blood anywhere in your penis.

    2. Do I need to warm up if I’m uncircumcised?
    3. If I do stretching on top of jelqing, won’t I detract from girth progress because of stretching’s length extension?

    Thanks!

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      Hey Kyle-
      1. You don’t need lubricant, but alternate to see which way you prefer. A lot of times jelqing with no lube, even for us uncut guys, can irritate the skin. If you are jelqing in the shower you can use anything as a lubricant- shampoo, soap, conditioner, anything thats slick enough.

      2. Warmup is essential to prevent damaging your penis. A warmup is just to get the blood flowing and moisten the skin. If you already had a boner or are half hard, you are generally good to start jelqing. Just don’t attempt to jelq when you have “caffeine dick” if ya know what I mean.

      3. No stretching wont affect your girth gains. The name stretching is deceiving because it gives this imagery of pulling your penis like its chewed bubble gum. In reality your initial gains from stretching will come from “pulling out” your inner penis. Ever notice when you Kegel your penis pulls in a little? Penis stretching exercises pull that inner penis out, and can add an inch in length sometimes in as little as a couple weeks.

      For stretching to occur by cell replication, meaning you are actually making your penis grow longer, you would need to use a penis extender like sizegenetics. Does that answer your questions? Let me know if you need anything clarified.

    When jelquing…Should I keep constant preasure into the head of the penis at all times? So when my one hand reaches the end of the penis should I let go then stroke with the other hand or not remove the first hand until the second hand is already in motion to keep blood in the head all the time?

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      Hey JD- Thats a smart question, and the answer is you can do either or. If you keep blood in the head at all times it will focus on giving you that “mushroom” effect most women love. The key to jelqing is to keep blood in your penis as much as possible. Personally, I jelq and stop at my head- then kegel hard before starting the next stroke so I have a fresh supply of blood in my shaft. There is also another method called “clamping” where you jelq, and clamp the base of your penis trapping the blood inside for 5-7 seconds at a time. This works great too, especially to get the girth gains all the way down to the base. :)

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      Hey Jimmy- You got a good size man, be happy about that first of all. The exercises work right away, a good jelqing session done right can add to your girth and length for an hour or so. The results take about 3 months of daily exercise to “cement” and become your normal permanent size. If you are willing to commit to 3 months of exercises, you should consider using an extender with the exercises. I was 5.5in when I started wearing sizegenetics, after about 6 months I am 7in. I have my before and after pictures here if you want to see them.

      Either way though man, this stuff works. I encourage all guys to give penis exercises a try, it improves your penis blood flow and erection strength, and I cannot think of any man on the planet who would be upset with a bigger penis.

    2) Do you have a video of the clamping method?

    3) When doing the V stretch, I have been holding the head of my penis up with my left hand, and pushing down hard on the middle of the shaft with my right thumb to create the V and hold for 30 seconds. Then I switch to holding the head of my penis down and pulling up with my right middle finger creating the V and holding. Is this good?

    Here is what I am doing:
    1) warming up with a heating pad (much better stretch vs a wet towel)
    2) stretch (up, down, left, right and straight out)
    3) V stretch, but holding, not moving my finger back and forth. I feel like I can get more stretch by stretching my dick out and pushing into the V.
    4) Jelqing 150x once a day.

    Thoughts? Should I do more than that now at one time or do it twice a day same amount?

    How can I maintain a partial erection when after my first few jelqs it is already fully erect?

      It takes some practice, after 3-4 sessions you will get the hang of it. You need to get your penis used to being half hard – as a plus though this will help you last longer in bed. Once you get hard, just take a deep breath and relax. Once you are back to a partial erection you can continue. Good question man.

    Is penile stretching required in a jelqing routine? In other words, MUST you stretch before you jelq? or no?

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      No not at all, Jelqing is just more for girth whereas stretching focuses strictly on length gains. Most guys aim to increase both, but you DEF don’t need to do both.

    will jelqing stunt the growth of my penis, stop it naturally growing ?

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      Your penis will naturally stop growing whenever your genetics tell it to. I wish I had discovered jelqing in high school when I was still growing fast. Seems to me that would have been the best time to jelq, recovery time would be faster and growth would be faster. To answer your question though dude, no Jelqing will not stunt the growth of your penis.

    I jelq a few years ago and did it with a full erection. I did this three day and on the last day I felt like something had pulled away at the base of my penis, I lost my erection and had a little swirling around the glan that went down after about 30 minutes. After a had slite pain on and off for a year and had problems with erections. Sinse then I have had prostate surgery. My question is could I have permanent damaged my penis and could the cancer been from the jelqing? I’ve been to doctors about it but none of them take it serious.

      Hey JS- I am sorry to hear that dude, Never Jelq with a full erection! It sounds like you might have caused some temporary damage, but it is extremely unlikely jelqing caused prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is common, and jelqing has never, in the 400+ year history of it being in use, been linked to any health issues. However I am not a doctor, and this is something you should really bring up with a medical professional. I cannot give you that type of advice, the information I share here is based on my own couple years invested in penis enlargement only.

    what should i do if i am consistently getting boners wen i am jelqing and doing the other stretches?

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      That’s just because you are new to jelqing, and maybe a little overly sensitive. After a few sessions you will get the hang of it. You can masturbate an hour before if that helps, but usually this problem solves itself. It’s what I call a “high quality problem”, meaning it’s a good problem to have.

    excuse me sir… i was wondering i have seen the before and after pics of the size genetics users… but sir i am just a student and i can’t buy even if i just resort to jelqing would i still be able to gain as much length as a normal size genetics user can get and… also i read on wiki answers that once ur 20 there’s no hope for u cause the penile growth stops and im already 18 … im extremely afraid help me out please

      Your penis growth stops around age 20, but that is your bodies natural growth. Using something like SizeGenetics forces growth using the principle of cell division via traction. Its proven to work, so you can enlarge your penis- and you can use the free exercises for this you don’t NEED to buy anything. They just make the process a little easier and faster. Use the free exercises everyday and you’ll see some results man!

    When I jelq I lose my erection after about 25 strokes. Should I just continue to jelq soft or just stop, regain an erection and continue? I am doing 300 per day at one sitting.

      tan – Kegels are your best bet. They help strengthen your erections. When you are peeing, that muscle you clench to stop – that is your kegel muscle. Practice stopping and starting without clenching your butthole. When you can stop urinating without full on clenching your anus you will have already improved your erection strength a great deal. I hope that helps!

      You should NOT Jelq while fully erect. If you are losing your partial erection thats normal dude. Just slap your dick against your leg a few times until you restore some decent blood flow, or jack off for a minute. Then continue jelqing – as your penis gets used to having more blood in it you will hold an erection longer. Since when you are jelqing you also are kegeling to keep your erection Jelqing doubles as a good exercise to give you stronger boners too. Does that help?

      Yes, but your rest days should begin when you feel fatigued. Jelqing is extremely safe though, and I have been jelqing everyday for over 10 months now.

      Yea man ofcourse, I am older than you and I have gained two inches from jelqing, stretching and using some products that work for me. Your age won’t stop you from growing, as long as you can get blood flowing to your manhood you can grow larger.

    Hey Greg, How you doing?. I’ve always believe that we can really make the manhood grow, I have a great starting size(7,1 in). I want to ask you, how is your routine, using everything (Extenders,Pumps,Exercises) If you could, you can explain in details how you doing all this.. So I would love to grow my into 9 inches!..Would be so damn great!

    Thank You..

      Hey Carlos – I just got back home, sorry for the slow reply. I’m posting that this week dude :) My whole routine. Congrats on your starting size, I started at 5.5 and just reached 7.5 a few weeks ago! Check back on my site in a few days and I’ll have it all published.

    How much girth can I expect to get in 3 months if I follow the routine you put above on how much jelqing to do each week if I jelq every day? I dont know if this affects it at all but my girth is 1.6 inchs (circumference is 5 inchs). please help!

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      Hey Andrew – Fear not man, you should check out my before and after pics on the sizegenetics page. I started at 5.4in and now I am 7.5in so you can achieve real results IF you stay motivated and consistent. I’m not able to estimate your personal gains, but in my experience gaining one inch inside of two months is completely doable with just manual exercises.

    Hey greg, i started jelqing yesterday but i havent figured out how to do v-strechs and what ill need to do so, and another question, if my size is in the range of 6-7in. How much do you think i will gain in 3 weeks if I do the work outs properly

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      That really depends on how effectitively you Jelq, but I would say you could see a quarter inch in that time.

    Awesome guide. I’ll be starting soon, and hopefully i can stick to it. Right now , I’m a little over 6 inches and aiming for 7 inches which, at least for me is pretty cool. One question though, will jelqing alone allow me to make that 1 inch gain or even 2 inches length wise? Esp for someone who is just starting out. I’ve been looking all over the website, and I don’t think i can spend money on all those pumps and extenders. Thanks!

    Reply
    • Gregory Lancaster

      Hey Zack – I dont think Jelqing will give you more than 1 inch maximum. I gained two inches myself and I used Jelqing, Stretching, SizeGenetics and Bathmate. SizeGenetics is what have me most of my length gains, along with Jelqing and STretching. But you DO NOT need to spend money to enlarge your penis dude. Start with Jelqing and Stretching, it will take you some time to gain your first inch. A couple months or so and after that if you still want more size like I did, then you can start worrying about money to spend. For now focus on the manual exercises. Your goals sound very realistic, I am sure you can get that first inch if you just stick to a daily routine. Hope that helps Zack!

    Posted these questions a few times with no replies…can you help me out? Wanna make sure I am doing the whole regimen correctly:

    Here is what I am doing:
    1) warming up with a heating pad (much better stretch vs a wet towel)

    2) Using rubber gloves for a better grip I stretch very hard (up, down, left, right and straight out)

    3) V stretch very hard and hold for 20 seconds, but holding, not moving my thumb back and forth. I feel like I can get more stretch by stretching my dick out and pushing into the V. Then opposite V stretch across my wrist like you do in your video.

    4) Jelqing 300x once a day.

    Thoughts? Should I do more than that now at one time or jelq twice a day same amount?
