So i started PE just like the original sticky recommends (warm up, jelq, and orientals), about 2 years ago at 20 years of age. at the time i kept with the routine, going pretty regularly for about a month, and noticed a 1/4 inch gain in length and girth. i remember measuring both at the time and thinking, wow this is great. around that time something happened, i cant really remember what or why, but i quit doing PE. so here i am 2 years later wanting to start again, but things are different and i have questions. i noticed the warm up section of the sticky says 10-15 minutes. i think i remember that i usually only did it for 5 minutes in the past. how long should i be warming up for? (i use warm wash cloths to warm up) also, i have trouble maintaining a semi-erect state during warm up. it will last for 3-4 minutes but after that its tough. i know the guide says you should be semi-erect (half?) during jelqs, does this count for warm up too? should i continuously get myself semi-hard again and then reapply the warm wash cloths, or does the warm up still work if you are about 1/4 erect (or maybe not that erect at all)? those are my first two concerns. my last concern involves the actually process of jelqing. i noticed its very difficult for me to not go completely erect while jelqing because it does feel enjoyable. i started jelqing vertically to slow down the erection which helped, but didnt take it away completely. is it ok to stop between jelqs to let your erection go down some? Thanks guys.
