Jelqing exercise involves applying pressure and pulling the penis, which is said to make the organ grow in length and girth.

There is not enough scientific research and evidence on jelqing, but men have reported gaining one and a half inch in length and girth respectively after practicing it for eight months continuously. But, if you want to retain any gains from this exercise, you have to keep practicing it.
