Where does jelqing come from?
As long as men remain self-conscious about their size, companies will continue selling bogus “penis enlargement pills” in popup ads. However, men who seek a more “natural” technique to extend their members might prefer something called jelqing.
Jelqing is the act of gently stroking one’s penis (like dudes aren’t already doing that) using two fingers in a precise method that supposedly creates “micro-tears” in the tissue (ouch?).

We have to note that jelqing pros insist the penis be semi-erect and that a session, not intended for pleasure, last 20–30 minutes.

This hasn’t stopped people, though, from continuing to talk about (not to mention try) this mystical, two-fingered jelqing technique. All of this has necessitated plenty of articles boasting—and debunking—the jelq.
Jelqing made its way on to Urban Dictionary, the repository for all weird sex stuff online, in 2005.

Most of the time, jelqing is made fun of, referenced as something that only desperate people do.
Those who believe jelqing‘s backstory as an ancient Arabic technique might want to know that the hand position recommended for the maneuver, an OK sign, strangely resembles the one associated with the Circle Game. And if you look into the circle, well …
