Extender Use - ADS - How Much is too Much

Extender Use - ADS - How Much is too Much

Hello everyone;

I am still getting used to my ADS, and right now combined with the manual PE I am doing, I’m in no rush with the ADS. I prefer to do it right and build up rather then slam on an ADS and pull too damn much.

I feel I am not stretching enough. It is not “easy” to get the noose on but when I do, I am still able kinda able to pull a few more inches.

Does this mean I should be using a bigger ADS? I have the little extension rods I can use.

BUT, getting my penis into the extender/noose is my hardest part, it just takes forever. And feels as if it is MAXED out in terms of stretching while pulling the penis and trying to get the noose on. But once the noose is on, I am always able to stretch some more if I pull on the extended alittle bit.

I’m assuming it should be tight against the Pelivic Bone, but mine isnt always 100% ‘pushing’ off the pubic bone.

What is YOUR method to getting your little man safely into the noose?

Hey there workingonitnow.

Looking at your pic from the other thread, I can’t see a threaded disconnect in the middle of your extender. I’m terrible with terminology, so hope I’m making sense. Maybe I just can’t see it in the pic.

Here’s why I bring this up: My extender comes in 2 pieces, and extension bars. I place the base unit on first, and I strap on the 2nd piece separately. Once the top piece is securely fastened, I connect the 2 pieces together. After which, I slowly crank up the tension to the desired level.

I’ve been using an extender for 8 mo’s now. I started with 2-3 notches for 1-2 months, but have increased tension to 1 1/2 - 2 notches, never more than 2 notches. My extender came with 2 springs, and I’m using the higher tension spring. The tension should be dialed in, without pain, yet feel a nice firm pull. You shouldn’t be able to pull on the end of the extender further than what the tension is creating already, otherwise you don’t have the tension set high enough.

I have to adjust my tension about every 15 minutes, so if you’re wearing it under your clothes, you may not have this luxury. If you go to long without adjusting it, the tension may drop to an ineffective level. I’ve read that higher tensions can create quicker results. Hopefully that’s not just some theoretical marketing ploy, but still, it makes sense to me. Of course one should never set tension to point of any pain whatsoever.

I’ve read on TP that many extender users like the noose, especially after the skin toughens up. I prefer the comfort straps only because the noose causes pain at my desired tension, and I think it’s just personal preference.

The tension should cause the base unit to be firmly affixed to your pelvic bone. If not, you may need base unit with a wider opening. One problem I could envision especially with too small of a base unit opening is that the tension is pulling against your skin more than the internals of your penis. Maybe the extender can be used to modify from cut to uncut & desirable. HA HA!! Yet I digress. I actually place a cushion between the base unit & my pelvic bone because I used to develop a dull pain on my pelvic bone after a while. Since I’ve been using the cushion, I have no more pain.

I believe pain is the hint. If after a couple hours it hurts too much to the point where you can’t use it, you’re stretching it too much.

I can use my extender at almost 7 inches but can’t handle it for one hour, so no point there. I use it at 5 inches and can go many hours a day.

Hey Charlie;
First thank you for taking the time to write a detailed response like yours!

Your right, mine does not have anything to “crank”, i saw an extender a few minutes ago that had “screwable” rods that could be adjusted once it is on.

Mine does not offer this, mine has extension rods and multiple sizes, but those screws on the bottom near the pelvic bone, are the only “screwable” items to tighten, but does not really give much tension addition.

My Extender only has one set of springs.

I agree with you, i wish i could “tighten” the tension every 30 min…even at my desk job, i can easily go to bathroom and adjust.

I have also read, more tension = quick results, but at the same time = easier injury, but there is a “middle” we need to find.

Im using the noose now, the comfort strap sucked for me, never gave a good pull and always slipped.

Yesterday i wore the noose with a bandage, now just raw and seems to be holding very well.

This is my BIGGEST Concern also..”problem I could envision especially with too small of a base unit opening is that the tension is pulling against your skin more than the internals of your penis. “

I definitely had some “skin” pulling rather then lig pulling with the comfort strap, the noose graps the head better and i feel it more in the ligs.

Do you use any formal for the initial setup?
Meaning, if you are 6.5 PBEL / 6.3PBSFL

Would u load the extender to 6.5 inches and use, or use 6.6 inches or even lower at 6?

Asking because i read most extenders are PBEL - 4cm

Great Point…

Im using mine at 6, while my PBEL is 6.5/PBSFL 6.3, and what im noticing is it really depends if my ball sac get pulled in too…

i for some reason, my sac attaches higher in the shaft….

I would say you are ok where you’re at , as long as you don’t have any loss of sensation or discoloration over an extended period. Not feeling maxed-out shouldn’t be an issue with the extender

Extender

Hey it this extender products have the capacity to extend and it works pretty awesome.

Actually was able to add several extender rods (not the largest ones), to the extender and was able to get about 5 hours in yesterday with a bare noose.

I do get loss of sensation, kinda like numb and cold, but i have read this is normal as beginning, as long as there is no pain and i monitor it closely. Also learning the difference between full numbness because of total circulation cutoff, or just the feeling of less blood in there.

Thanks for the help guys!

Hey workingonitnow,

Sorry for the delayed response.

I believe that the springs both help create tension and protect from causing too much tension. In fact, the heaviest duty spring is no spring at all, if you think about it. Imagine if there were no springs, and you continued dialing in more & more tension. There would be no flexibility or give, and if the straps held (no slippage) eventually the tension would get too great and could cause injury. I use my extender with the springs, set for maximum tension, & at some point I get pain in the skin from the grip of the straps after 1-2 hours. I don’t ever feel any possibility of injury, as the penis is a well-constructed, durable piece of equipment. :) So that being said, I can torque up the tension as far as I can until I get a strong pull, but before the strap grip begins to cause pain in the skin or slippage. Does that make sense? As far as stretch in inches or cm’s, if you were to do a BPFSL measurement, you’re probably going to yank on your penis as much as possible to get maximum measurement. Right? We all do it. HA HA The penis can stretch only so far, and pulling any more will not make it any longer. Do you notice that there is no pain at max stretch when doing a BPFSL measurement? Nobody’s going to pull so hard, that they have to create pain & injury to get that extra millimeter, unless there a sadist. LoL You would literally have to put all your might, with a death grip of hulk, before pain sets in. And of course nobody’s going to go to that extreme. My point is that the penis is very durable, and the extender is a very safe product, and you can set it to as much as you can bear. HOWEVER, one caveat, if you can somehow set the strap on so tight that regardless of tension, there’s no slippage or pain in the skin, and the springs are maxed out (no protection), and you can still torque up the tension, well YEAH, this is the point where damage can occur. Your pain sensories would be firing like a mother, & tell you that hey, stop already, this friggin hurts.

So what I do is I figure out what my maximum BPFLS is and try to extend to that point with tension challenging it to grow. Obviously my penis can already reach my BPFSL, so I must set enough tension at my BPFSL if I’m to get any gains. There’s no pain whatsoever, except that eventually I do get temporary pain in the skin from the grip of the straps, and I’m forced to take it off for 15 minutes or so, & put it back on. My biggest problem is slippage. I may have to rethink a new idea to control it better so I don’t have to adjust it every 15 minutes or so.

Charlie;

Thanks for the repy!

LOL your right, no one is gonna do a BPFSL with enough grip and tension to get hurt, so if my BPFSL is 6.4 inc ish, its only 6.4ish because the tip is there and pulling allows it to stretch little unnaturally so its not like the head is not being squished to get the BPFSL.

So with a 6.4, im using my extender at 6.2 in because it allows me to grip under the glands and apply pressure to the ligs.

Ive added medical gores (bandadges) around my tip to avoid slippage with the regular noose, seems to be working well.

While i adjust to the extender, ill be playing with the various tensions. I am also going to be going to the hardware store to find higher tension springs i think.

Thanks for the help!

Cool. I’m going to look into the bandages also.
