The PEGym, a community devoted to the improvement of men’s sexual health, is calling on men to focus on their exercise routines by declaring November 2013 as the first “Jelq for Health” month.

Jelqing (pronounced “Gel-king”) is a physical therapy penis exercise that involves squeezing the penis from base to glans to increase blood pressure and circulation with the goal of improving hardness, length and girth.

With over 80,000 registered members, is asking members and newcomers alike to record their jelqing exercises with the goal of achieving a collective one million jelqs during the 30 days of November. If participators reach the million jelq mark, PEGym will donate $1000 to the Urology Care Foundation to help battle erectile dysfunction.

“The topic of men’s health is often centered around preventative measures for common diseases. Improving your health should be more than just preventing the worst case scenario though,” said Rob Michaels, PEGym editor and author of the jelqing guide Penis Exercises: A Healthy Book for Enlargement, Enhancement, Hardness, & Health. “Just as you work out at a gym to build muscle and improve your athletic capability, you can jelq to exercise your penis. The physical and psychological benefits can be substantial. We want to call on men to optimize all parts of their body, leading to a happier and more sexually satisfied existence.”

The jelq is the backbone of most penis enlargement exercises. Jelqing, also known as “milking”, for its milking-type motion, is simple but takes time to master. An average jelqing routine runs 5 to 15 minutes, involving a jelq every 2 to 3 seconds and a healthy weekly average is 2 to 5 workout sessions.

“Jelqing is an effective technique for improving the size and hardness of the penis. After the kegel, it’s the number one exercise for men interested in improving their sexual health,” said Michaels. “Men have noticed stronger, harder erections with the jelq within a couple of weeks and significant size increases within a month.”

Like all exercising, the jelq is not expected to work overnight. To see results, men generally need to keep to a disciplined exercise routine, which is why PEGym is challenging men everywhere to take control of their sexual health and satisfaction.

“This challenge is for all men, experienced jelqers and men unfamiliar with jelqing who are curious to see the results they can achieve. Many people have doubts about the effectiveness of these exercises. We’re hoping that after they begin to see results they’ll know this brand of self-improvement is entirely possible and healthy when done right,” said Michaels.
