Hey guys! I've been a lurker at this site on and off for a few years. I've posted a couple threads for some advice, and I've made a few comments here and there. But I mostly just read about all the stuff other dudes have to say, and I enjoy comparing myself with the competition...especially the guys who are very blessed down there. :biggrin1: Anyway, I've always considered myself average in the cock department, with maybe some slightly above average girth. However, my dick barely reaches 5 inches when I have an optimum erection; so I know I'm at the very lowest end of average. That's not good enough for me. I don't ever expect to have a monster 8 or 9 inch penis like some of the guys here. But I would like to at least be at the upper end of average, or even slightly above average (i.e. 6-7 inches). I've been researching penis enlargement for awhile, and the conclusion I've come to is this: Penis enlargement IS possible, but it takes a LOT of dedication. Of course I've read a lot about jelqing right here in this forum. And let me just say that Big Al is amazing. Kudos to him for all the free advice he gives. It was very helpful when I was trying to decide what would be the best penis enlargement method for me. With that said, I ultimately decided that jelqing wasn't right for me. Everybody is different, and I felt like I needed a method that would be less prone to human error (aka- me making mistakes). I recently purchased a penis stretching device from a well established company. During my time lurking around this forum, I've never noticed a thread dedicated to the success (or non-success) of penis stretching. There are a lot of PE journals, but nothing specifically for penis stretching. So I've decided to start the first penis stretching journal for this forum. I know there are probably other guys who are curious what it's like and if it really works. So I'll try to provide regular updates and measurements. I hope this will be helpful for some of the members of this site. It will also be cool for me to have a place to share my excitement when I start to see gains. (I said WHEN, not IF, because I have to stay positive!) This first post is starting to get lengthy (hopefully a good sign for things to come with my cock? :tongue, so I'll post my goals and initial stats in the next post.
