The technique known as Arabic jelqing, or milking, is a Middle Eastern penis enlargement exercise that is reported to increase both the size and circumference of the male organ. It is designed to stimulate blood flow to the penis. While there are multiple surgical and pharmaceutical penis enlargement options available, jelqing is a technique that doesn’t require special products and can be done in the privacy of your own bathroom. While the exercises are widely reported to increase your "size," consult your physician before undertaking any of these techniques.

The Wet Jelq

This technique is best performed when your penis is semi-erect, and begins by warming up your penis with a hot shower or bath. Place some lubricant like baby oil on both hands and rub it into your semi-erect penis. Encircle the penis with the thumb and forefinger of one hand, making sure the palm of your hand is facing the ground. Grip your penis firmly at the base with your thumb and forefinger in the shape of an OK sign. Squeeze gently and run your encircled fingers slowly down the length of your shaft until you reach the glans (head). When you reach the glans, start the technique using the other hand. Alternate using both hands and try to perform about 200 strokes daily, working slowly up to about 500 daily strokes, according to

The Dry Jelq

This technique places more stress on the penile shaft because it does not require lubrication, according to the Penis Enlargement Manual. It is similar to the wet jelq, but requires only one hand. Use a hand in the manner described above, but when you reach the end of your shaft you should contract your pelvic floor muscles as if trying to stop the flow of urine. While holding this muscle contraction return your hand to the base of your penis and use the loose skin surrounding your shaft to allow your encircled fingers to move down your shaft. Perform approximately 200 strokes daily, slowly increasing the repetitions until you reach about 500 strokes.

Stretched Jelqing

The stretched jelqing exercise requires two hands throughout the technique and is performed by squeezing your penis with one hand right behind the glans, stretching it slightly, according to the Penis Enlargement Manual. Grip your penis at the base with your thumb and forefinger encircling your shaft in an "OK" sign with your palms facing down. Stroke forward in a motion identical to the dry and wet jelqing technique, releasing your grip as your hands meet. Return your stroking hand to the starting position and repeat. The website recommends performing 200 to 300 strokes daily throughout the first week, slowly increasing the repetitions until you reach 500 daily strokes.
