I made this profile without the intention of posting, so forgive the lame name. I have been doing the free classic beginner's routine for about 3 weeks now and sit down stretches at random times throughout the day, but I haven't seen much gain. Maybe 1/8 of an inch, but i think that's just in my head. It seems that pumping for a few minutes then doing jelqing would be very effective, and I want to buy a pump, but I am hesitant to do so. I am worried about loosing sensitivity after using it for a while. I know that I should buy one with a pressure gauge, but I can't find any locally. I guess I'll just have to order one online. Also, what is a safe pressure range? I read that it's better to have an erection before you start pumping. Is that true? Btw I'm a hair under 7" and I have a girth of just over 6" at the base. (Not exaggerated in the slightest bit) Edit: I measured with the ruler pushed to the bone. And I have noticed a difference of maybe 1/2 an inch in my average flaccid length. I do these exercises after soaking in a warm bath for about 10 minutes. How crucial is the warm down? I don't do that for that long, although I guess if I finish my exercises and stay in the bath for a few more minutes that would count as a warm down. I spend a lot of my time sitting at a desk, so I could do the sit down stretch often. How effective would that be without warming up/down, and how often should I do it? Oh, and I'm 18, 142lbs, very healthy, and just about done growing in height. (6'3) Also, should your penis feel sore or different in any way after these exercises? I don't feel anything after exercising and I'm using an ample amount of force, and I don't feel any any pain during the exercise.
