Penile Weight Lifting, Part 2
image Last month I posted about a man in Hong Kong who claims that he was able to lift a dumbbell weighing 165lbs with his penis. What I didn't know then was that there's an entire martial art based around penile weight lifting. It's called Jiu Jiu Shen Gong. For only $56.95 you can get a video that will teach you the secrets of this ancient skill. The video is titled Iron Crotch:

"You heard the stories, now experience the reality! Iron Crotch is the most talked about ancient Chinese practice! Called Jiu Jiu Shen Gong (99 Power Practice) this ancient skill unleashes your untapped potential and allows you to achieve your peak performance! Grandmaster Tu's students have lifted hundreds of pounds with their privates, even students in their 70s! Dramatically enhances your potency and helps with sexual response dysfunction or lack of interest in sex."

I believe this video is real, in the sense that the Martial Arts Mart really is offering it for sale. However, I'm not willing to believe that anyone is actually going to learn how to lift hundreds of pounds with their penis by watching it.

I hate to even say this, but you know, the only way to verify this is to have someone test it out...any takers? wink

Didn't Stephen say he was already doing this on the original weight-lifting thread? Or did you want someone else to try it out, Katherine?

Gotta love that disclaimer! Don't try this at home unless you already do it! LOL

I fail to see how having one's penis ripped from one's body by a 165-pound weight will enhance the sex life, but there are plenty of idiots out there, and heck, at least it will stop them from reproducing any further.

A possible Rip-off, pun intended

yes Smirk, I have done this. I gotta go check out this thing though! What girl wouldn't like a guy that can hold 165 lbs with his penis. Now, I have been in Wushu Kung Fu for about 16 years, and this does sound like a form of Kung Fu, would have to be a form of Tai Chi.

Or Chai tea?

Was that an attempt to be funny Maegan??? The time change must be affecting you. I know u can do better.

Funny how from the last "penis pump" thread it was told that this leads to dysfunction in those who practice it. That must be something to both cure and cause it at the same time. I think it works more like stealing away the mojo so the ol twig an berries get frozen in one long winter.

If you have a burning desire to "lift hundreds of pounds with your privates," you'd probably be better off spending the money on psychotherapy, instead of instructional videos.

since the penis is a muscle, can you grow it and empower it by lifting many pounds ?

Hmmm...Tai chi followed by some Chai Tea...can't get any better than that! Stephen, your spelling sucks. Look carefully. I spell Smerk with an 'e', not 'i'. You seem to have a fixation with the letter 'i'.
Posted by Smerk  in  to mischief  on  Mon Apr 04, 2005  at  08:43 PM
Uh, Smirk, shouldn't your location read "Western Austrailia?"

tongue wink

And angelo, no, the penis is not a muscle. If it was, I can guarantee you'd see them throwing each other around with steroid created dongs on wrestling.

LOL

Rod, since when is your name Stephen? tongue laugh
Posted by Smerk  in  to mischief  on  Mon Apr 04, 2005  at  11:03 PM
Just can't miss a chance to rag on Stephen...
smile

I was gonna type the whole sentence out with 'i's replacing all the vowels, but it just looked too garbled.

Ih, Smirk, shiildn't yiir licitiin riid "Wistirn Iistriilii?"

See?
Posted by Rod  in  the land of smarties.  on  Mon Apr 04, 2005  at  11:15 PM
Smirk, are you saying that Rod and Stephen are one and the same person? That's creepy
Posted by Hairy Houdini  on  Mon Apr 04, 2005  at  11:22 PM
Eek! That would only be intelligible to Kiwis!

Must admit, even though I'm never here at the same time as Stephen, it is fun to have a go at him... cheese
Posted by Smerk  in  to mischief  on  Mon Apr 04, 2005  at  11:25 PM
A HA... since Smerk is not around at the same time that Stephen is... then, logically, Smerk IS Stephen... ah, the ruse has ended... I knew it all along... didn't fool me for a minute, Smerk-uh- Stephen... Smerphen

"That would only be intelligible to Kiwis!" - Smerk

Kiwis in bikinis?

smile
Posted by Rod  in  the land of smarties.  on  Mon Apr 04, 2005  at  11:50 PM
Kiwis in bikinis - funny visual of a small, shy brown bird wearing sunnies and a string bikini...

Hairy, I do solomnly declare I have absolutely nothing to do with Stephen except for taking the piss on occasion. I don't know about Rod though...he was trying to convince me the other day that he was Alex in disguise (hence the avatar I suppoes)... cool hmm
Posted by Smerk  in  to mischief  on  Mon Apr 04, 2005  at  11:55 PM
Damn typing! That last word should be suppose...

Hairy, I also have nothing to do with Smerphs (Smurfs). Although I do like the colour blue.
Posted by Smerk  in  to mischief  on  Mon Apr 04, 2005  at  11:58 PM
I can't remember where I found it, but it's actually Alex in a similar pose as on his About me page...

Alex's about picture...


The one I found...



Weird, huh?

LaMa sent me a cartoon link earlier, and I found this cartoon. I think the people here would enjoy it...



I tried to link to the website, but it just gives you the newest cartoon when you go there.

Anyway, here's the link to the homepage...

Rod, I think the second photo was from a news article Alex did...I seem to remember seeing it posted in the weblog.

Oh no, those cartoons are hilarious! I just reached the one about what boomerangs think... LOL

Rod, here's the link http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/weblog/permalink/nyt/

Appears to have a closeup of the pic you posted.

To answer Angelo: no, the penis is not a muscle. In fact, it (the external part) contains no muscle tissue. It's basically a balloon. Muscles at the base of the penis constrict some veins, meaning that blood can't get out, so it inflates.

Not to mention "surgery performed by a panda ..."
Posted by Big Gary C  in  Dallas, Texas  on  Tue Apr 05, 2005  at  07:59 PM
Actually that sort of stuff IS real. It IS possible to lift such weights with the penis. OF course it's not something you want to try to do right off the bat and like any feat of strength it's something that you have to work up too.

I've seen pictures and heard of people moving small vehicles via piercings. This is from a reputable site, unfortunatley it's NSFW and I can't share it here.

As far as I know Iron Crotch is a part of martial arts training, this one may or may not be fake, I have a very old book on shaolin kungfu which mentions iron crotch but the exercises are probably a little different.
