Beyond the obvious "I want to have a bigger/longer/thicker dick" what is your motivation behind doing PE? After a few start/stop attempts at PE, I've recently begun a committed workout and have been going for about 5 weeks now. On a given day I'm spending anywhere from 30 mins to 2 hours on stretching, jelqing, heating, squeezing and generally pulling on my dick, with no true evidence that it will actually work. While I hope that my efforts will have results, I've never been a believer that it will actually happen. For all of the posts I read that may be describing real, factual gains, I realize that the internet makes everything possible and so it's gotten to the point where the only "proof" I'll ever truly be able to trust are my own gains, if they happen. Additionally PE seems to be generally dismissed and in some cases vehemently railed against (recent poster Glib for example), so that even admitting I'm trying it seems embarrassing. The strangest thing about my endeavor to me is that despite the fact that I can't find any real proof that PE works, and despite the fact that I've never received one derisive comment about my size, in fact quite the opposite, I'm still not satisfied with my size. I suppose years of porn watching have convinced me that my large size is average, and I don't want to be average. At the end of the day it comes down to this: even though I've got a large dick to begin with, I'm insecure about my length. I've measured my penis in every way possible, I've received positive reviews about my overall size from my partners, but in my mind there is a number I want to see when I lay the ruler down on my penis. 8. I don't want to sound like I'm dogging PE, so here are my experiences so far. After 2 weeks I noticed that my erections felt firmer/harder. After 4 weeks my erect penis seemed to look longer to the naked eye. I'm not measuring regularly because I'm worried that I might confuse gains for inaccurate measurements. Yesterday when I woke up my flaccid/non workout size looked almost the same as my post-workout semi-erect size when I started. For many of us, we spend a significant amount of time working on PE with no true promise of results. I rationalize it by comparing it to time people spend on other things. Some people spend an hour and a half in the gym working out every day. Some people practice piano or violin. Some play video games. I choose to spend my time on PE. What's your motivation? Why do you do it?
