The forefinger is on top/side of the head, with middle finger pretty much underneath for support.
 
Thumb and ring finger are down the shaft a little ways....thumb on top....gentle pressure from below and above to cause slight tension.....make sure to avoid urethra, then push it in at a 90 degree angle.
 
He suggested doing it slightly below the circumcision line...or if uncircumcised, slightly below where the foreskin begins.
 
Hope this helps....my earlier description was off a bit....lol.

My golf aim is similarly inconsistent...lol....wide right, wide left.

Piano, I am going to call you stringbean.  I was not familiar with BMI, but looked it up and you are one lean fellow.  You are also a brave fellow - cannot imagine my wife assisting me with this effort.

Here is further information for DanMan Bob (and anyone else interested) about the standard Quadmix injection med that I use.  The formula is (per mL): PGE1 20 mcg, papaverine 30 mg, phentolamine 2 mg, forskolin 100 mcg.
