    Just a general question - has anyone else found that their death grip has left them with bruises? I was just washing in the shower today, and noticed that where at least three of my fingers have been regularly placed - especially the thumb - my penis is a grey-purple kind of colour. It is bruised. Has anyone else noticed this, or have I been in some kind of extreme death grip?

    I have that as well. I can only imagine it'll go away with time. You might want to consult with a competent doctor however. I've been to a few specialists with my issues and none of them pointed out the colour of the glans as being a problem of any sort.

    I suspect it is normal and will subside eventually. Good luck :)

    I have experienced the same.

    I also had a some serious burns and bruises on the side and top of my penis.
    These things heals and and goes away with time. It might leave a tiny scar or a small mark or something. But nothing to worry about!

    Of course if things gets worse always go to the doctor.

    The body and brain is pretty awesome at recovery, if we let them.

    M,

    Sometimes the purple colour of the glans is caused by the lowered amount of oxygen in blood. But it is natural, some people just have it. You can try to drink more water. It helped in my case.

    Personally, I didn't have bruises or I didn't notice. But it means you had to push really hard in order to achieve some level of satisfaction. You need a long time reset in order to get satisfaction when you decide to start sexual life with your partner.

    Good luck man!

    Death grip and other stupid crap just to get an orgasm. Did it so long that nothing normal worked. Now I am noticing many things looking and working normal again. Could not have done it alone.

    Keep on the right path the body and mind will heal.

    Thanks everyone. Glad to know it's not just me, and that it heals with time. Another reason to give up M - nobody wants to see it in that kind of state, least of all me!

    I just happened on this little thread and noticed all these 3 figure NoFappers. Awesome guys - kudos to you! :)

    I agree with the comments that although soft tissue damage can occur, like most parts of the body, the penis will heal - given the opportunity. That opportunity, you guys are exploring to the full. Death grip is a stupid, but understandable, phenomenon (I speak as a former death gripper lol). The pressure we can exert on our cock is so many times more than we would experience inside an vagina or even an anus, if that is your thing. But I want to return to the main point - yes, everything will resolve itself and bloody well done all of you for hitting the ball out the park - baseball for US and cricket for UK hahaha! :D

    Same shit to me - my skin is blackish where I use fingers the most and skin is rougher and I've never let it chill YET.

    Thanks, IGY. Making that post has driven me to check out how the healing process has gone. What with not getting it out and playing with it multiple times a day, I guess it isn't something I've been doing much of lately.

    It doesn't look bruised any more, but nor does it look what I would call "normal". The skin is still noticeably darker where the old DG used to go. But when I think of the enormous amount of pressure I used to put onto it, I guess it would logically take a lot of time to fully heal, if at all. It doesn't hurt, nor is it causing me any ED or suchlike (not that I've been in many situations of late where I've needed to test that out, but I got one last night which didn't feel too bad.) Hopefully continued restraint will make it even better.

    As the others have said, it should heal. The human body is remarkable for its ability to heal. Just give it some time (^__^)

    Sorry, I know this thread is ANCIENT, but it’s the only thing I’ve found online that comes close to my own symptoms. Did the painless bruising ever go away?

    Did they go after a while? I have seriously reduced the amount I do it but have seen no noticeable change as of yet!

    Sure they go away, like any other bruise in your body. If you did not make a hole in your d :D

    It will go away, yes. It took a long time for me - months rather than weeks - but it went eventually.

    I am still kind of fearful that the skin around where I put my thumb is a little darker than elsewhere, but then I did have a wobble recently (late November / early December).

    Good luck with your NoFap mission!

    It has helped put my mind at ease reading this thread even though I am still dealing with this problem. Could not find any helpful information about it online; only stuff making me hyperparanoid and depressed about the situation. I cant tell the extent of damage even though some bruising and discoloration and dont have ED its more just sensitivity loss which I really need to fix. I dont want to go to a doctor and be able to heal from this on my own so I am going to hardcore no pmo for at least 90 hopefully that is all it takes.

    It took me longer than 90 days to recover fully. If the bruising and discolouration isn’t too bad, then maybe it will be enough. When I started this thread, I’d been tightening my grip for many years. As I posted back in 2019, there are some slightly darker patches still there which are probably permanent, but if I didn’t know they were there, I probably wouldn’t notice them. My wife has never mentioned them. But the worst of it recovers.

    Surely we can’t be the only men out there to have had this issue and want to do something about it?!

    I hope your recovery is going well. You can do it!

    I asked my doctor about my penis discoloration. He told me that if I was going to masturbate, I should use a lube and be gentle, but otherwise there seemed to be no problem. I was embarrassed but relieved.

    No, we are surely not the only ones to have had this issue and to want to do something about it.

    The thing is, it doesn’t necessarily hurt or reduce functionality. It can, but more often it simply looks horrific. I’m glad this has vastly reduced nowadays, and it gives me another reason to feel better about myself.
