Do Kegels Increase Penis Size?
If you read and research around penis enlargement long enough, you’ll see mention of these Kegel exercises.
For men, they’re most often prescribed to help fix incontinence from injury or illness. You’ll see why in just a moment.
They’re also recommended for curbing premature ejaculation by building better control of the muscles influencing orgasm.
In terms of penis enlargement, not every claim or technique you’ve heard about them is on the money. But enough are that we need to talk about them.
Kegel exercises are a form of isometric exercise — the kind where you build muscle strength by flexing the muscle and holding the flex.
You’ve probably done isometrics as part of your ab routine, when you tighten those muscles extra while doing a crunch.
Gynecologist Dr. Arnold Kegel invented them in the late 19th century (source).
He developed them as a cure for “genital relaxation” — a loosening of the vaginal walls after childbirth resulting in female incontinence.
They’re not tricky to do once you figure out where those muscles are, but it can be a bit of a process to locate them.. Use the following steps to isolate your pelvic floor muscles and learn how to do a simple Kegel.
Start the next time you pee…
Clench your muscles to stop the stream, the way you had to the one time you almost got caught peeing outside while intoxicated.
The muscles you just used are the pelvic floor muscles.
Once you’ve got that figured out, don’t make a habit of doing Kegels while you pee.
It can cause you to incompletely empty your bladder, which can cause a urinary tract infection. Those hurt. A lot.
Practice when you’re not peeing, and in different positions, until you have control of your pelvic floor muscles. Tighten and hold for five seconds, five times to start.
Work your way up to ten by ten sets…
Focus while you practice your technique. If you feel the muscles in your butt, back, thighs, or abdomen flex you’re doing it wrong.
Dial back the reps and focus more on your technique.
Eventually, you will be able to flex your pelvic floor muscles and nothing but your pelvic floor muscles.
Don’t be in a hurry to move right on to Kegels for growth.
Your regular exercises will produce results while you’re figuring it all out. Once you can do ten by ten sets without cheating and engaging other muscles, you’ll be ready to move on.
“But wait,” you’re saying. “I’m not incontinent. I want a penis the size of a continent.”
Here’s how that works…
Remember when you were finding your pelvic floor muscles by clenching them to stop your urinary flow?
Remember how before the pee stopped you shot out a short spurt of urine, like somebody had squeezed the trigger on a squirt gun.
You might also have experienced that after having an orgasm, squeezing your pelvic floor muscles to release that last bit of semen.
In both cases, that same little spurt shoots blood forward into your penis.
Under normal circumstances, the blood flows right back out again. That’s what happens if you do Kegels normally, and why Kegels by themselves won’t increase the size of your penis.
But if you’re doing an exercise (or using equipment) that traps blood in your penis, the extra blood stays in there.
Since many penis growth exercises work by trapping blood in the penis to stretch the tissues, doing kegels during these exercises increases the stretch by adding blood to the already stretched and swollen member.
The first step in doing Kegel exercises for growth gains is choosing the right kind of exercise to use while them during.
Recall that penis growth exercises work via two mechanics. Either they stretch the tissue by pulling it from the outside (hanging, penis extenders), or they stretch it by pushing from the inside with blood.
Only the second method benefits from kegels, so choose from this list:
For step two, get set up to do the exercise you chose.
Pay special attention to the warm-up phase, especially the first few times.
Kegels will seriously intensify the exercise, so you’re at some risk of an overtraining injury if you’re not fully ready for it.
Once your penis is fully engorged by the exercise, do a Kegel. Then do four more. Start with five-second kegels and work your way up to 10 or even 20 seconds.
You will notice the results immediately, and they might not be very pleasant at first.
Your jelqing (or whatever) works because you engorge your penis past the comfort point of the tissues. A Kegel engorges it even further.
As with any exercise, expect discomfort, but dial it back if you start to feel actual pain. Work your way up to longer sessions with more reps with increased time.
You make your penis larger by stretching the tissues in your penis until the tissue loses its elasticity and naturally hangs longer.
Kegel exercises by themselves do neither of those things.
Exercises that stretch penis tissue by filling the penis with blood can get extra blood (and more stretch) if you do proper kegels during those exercises.
LIke I said earlier, kegels won’t do much for you if you’re doing an external stretch like hanging. The extra blood flow doesn’t add to the mechanics behind how they work.
If you’re interested in adding kegels to your jelqing for example, just start with sets of ten and see what happens.
You may experience discomfort as your member gets more swollen than you were prepared for.
As always, stop if that discomfort turns into pain.
