How To Perform the V-Stretch- 5 Simple Steps with Video

The V-Stretch is a more advanced version of the basic stretch, and was designed in 2001 by a physics teacher. It works by applying pressure at different points along the shaft which forces the penis into a V shape. This exercise places most of the stress on the suspensory ligaments, as well as along the tunica.

Stretching the suspensory ligaments is how penis enlargement is achieved, whether it be with an extender like SizeGenetics or via manual exercises like these.

As always before performing manual PE exercises, begin with a warmup.

V-Stretch Diagram Detailing Visually How To Perform ExerciseStep 1: Make the “OK” gesture with your non-dominant hand and grip the head of your penis. Pull your penis outward from your body until it is taut.

Step 2: Keeping your penis taut, hook the thumb from your dominant hand on the top of the shaft, near the base of your penis.

Step 3: Press your hooked thumb down slowly, at the base of your penis.

Step 4: Slide your thumb down the shaft of your penis towards the tip. This process should take no more than 10 seconds.  (use a mirror to ensure you are creating the V shape)

Step 5: Slide your thumb back up towards the base of your penis. Maintain the same amount of pressure as you did sliding down.  This should take no more than 10 seconds.

V-Stretching: You should perform this stretch in no more than 5 minute long sessions. Each stroke up and down the shaft should put pressure on the base where the suspensory ligament begins, and at the point of the V. End your session by massaging your penis or smacking it against your leg to restore blood flow.

  • Another method which is also effective; rather than sliding thumb up and down the shaft instead you press the hooked thumb down against the middle of the penis shaft.  Hold this position for a count of thirty seconds, and release.  This is the same exercise, just a different method of executing it. 

V-Stretch Notes

  • The flaccid length of your penis will hang longer for a few hours after performing a 5 minute session.
  • The amount of pressure / force applied plays a large role in how effective this technique is. As fibers repair it will take more pressure to recreate micro-tears  which means you should adapt to the pressure required on an ongoing basis.
  • There are many variations of this stretch, most of them use a bar or broom stick sized tool to do the pressing down for you.  I don’t recommend this as your thumb is softer, and safer.

Best Results

  • This is a completely safe exercise to perform daily, but should not be performed more than twice per day.  
  • Soreness from a previous session of V-Stretches is okay, you can still perform the exercise as long as care is taken and the pressure applied is intelligently adjusted.

Thanks for this. Is it okay to do jelqing along with such a stretch (meaning one after the other), or do they need to be done on different days?


are you sure this does not damage your penis in years to come, or your balls/sperm and does it actually work ?- jelqing and v stretch. Also If i was 16-17 years old would this affect my natural penis growth ?


Today is my first day i found out about all this. This will be my routine:

-V-stretch 5 minutes
-Jelq +- 5 minutes
-warm down

Do you find this a good scheme? And is it okay to start with the v strech instead of the basic manual stretch? thank you very much.


I realize it is quite hard to slide the thumb back to the starting position due to excess skin. Is lube or lotion required for this routine?


So do the dominant thumb is just sliding back and forth theres no finger underneath going with it


Can u masturbate before jelqing


How long do u have to wait after masterbatting before jelqing and how long do you have 2 wait after jelquing to masturbate


I have been on a medication that severely impacts my libido and arousal as a result I may go for a month without masturbating/ejaculating. Prior to ejaculating tonight I measured myself and it has lost one inch! I have not measured myself in a few years. If these stretches are to increase length then it would make sense to me that not getting an erection and ejaculating so minimally for a few years would decrease the size like any other muscle group. No? I hope you say yes so I can get back what I lost. How will the stretches assist and would I ever get back the one inch and more?


can u domonstrate d v-strech wit pix as done wit jelqing. Thanks


In a 6 months, do you know about how much you penis can grow? And has this worked for you?

A few quick questions:
1. Can you stretch after you perform a warm down?
2. Is it required that you perform a warm down after you stretch? how about a warm up before?
3. Understanding that body type and devotion to stretching vary, on average, If you go 6 months and 6 days a week, 1 day of rest, what do you estimate growth to be around? is the day of rest a benefit in any way?


does v-stretch need warm up and cooldown?


How should you warm up for this? Would it be the same warm-up as you do for jelqing?


Hi, i have 2 questions. Can this straighten a curved penis or is there another exercise for that? Also, what do you mean by v shape?


You are awesome! I’ve done the v stretch for only a month now and gained about a half an inch!


How often should I do the stretch and jelqing?
Is doing them every day ok?
Or should I do them five or six days a week and let my penis has time to recover?
Thanks for your reply.


Does V-stretch increase the length of he penis? and Do I need to use a lubricant if I do the V-stretch?


I use a lotion or a lube during my V stretch! Just something to slide without friction

Can you perform the V stretch effectively while laying on your back in bed? how about the basic stretches (left right up down out)


So I can do this exercise twice a day for 5 minute with no warm up or warm down? even if I’m uncircumcised? Will I see any gains if I’m doing only this exercise?


I had been doing the jelqing exercise and the stretching daily for one or two months, but I don’t think there is a noticeable increase of length. What do you think about that?
Thanks for your replying.


How much length can I expect to gain? I have always been on the short side, but have always been able to please my wife. I am not looking for porn star size, the length in the video is nice.


Can you do the V stretch as well as Jelqing??
Ex. Lets say I did a V stretch exercise today at 12, could I also do a jelq session later on at like 5??


Great post dude!
I’ve recently started to do PE and mostly the stretching.I’d like to know, is it good/normal/bad if i feel a burning sensation at the penis base while stretching (mostly when stretching downwards), its onky during the stretch and after that i dont feel anythingg bad. Have u ever experienced this?


Thanks for the reply! One more thing, is it possible to gain length by doing only basic stretching & v stretch, kegel.i’ve tried to jelq but its quite hard to do si i decided to focus mainly on it possible?


Thanks for the reply! One more thing, is it possible to gain length by doing only basic stretching & v stretch, kegel.i’ve tried to jelq but its quite hard to do so I decided to focus mainly on it effective for length to do that alone?


is 5 inches penis good size or not?


Hey, thanks for the reply back. That was really needed information. But I have another question.

I’m only 15 & well I was wondering if doing the stretch excercises & pulling out my “inner penis” will affect my natural growth?? The way I see it is since I’ve pulled out my inner penis will I still be able to grow naturally??
Thanks for the reply.


in the jelking method you said that the pines cant be fully hard, does this rule count as well in this method also?
because i get hard easily and after a couple of strokes i am hard…


What would you recommend if I’m too small to even jelq or do the v stretch?
