Anyone else having trouble with erect clamping? Any advice?

Anyone else having trouble with erect clamping? Any advice?

Hello all,

First, a late happy new PE year to all of you from me. Let`s make some gains this year! :)

Now, to the subject of erect clamping, EQ and gains.

Erect clamping is an exercise that I really like and really believe in, but my penis does not agree with me in recent years. I seem to recall that I had some positive experiences the first time I clamped many years back, but in the later years, I invariably end up with poor EQ, shrinkage (not permanent) and no gains. Actually, the last time I tried it seriously, it seemed to start out really well and I thought I was on my way to girth heaven, but then, nothing, and I had to quit because of poor EQ and shrinkage.

I have never been one to use extreme intensity, always clamp with padding using only one clamp and usually I have never done more than 3 X 10 minutes and built up to that from 5-6 minute sets.

Right now, I`m comfortable with a pumping and jelqing routine which gives me positive PIs, on average a very good EQ, decent flaccid hang, etc. However, I do think clamping may be a better exercise for girth and pumping is also more of a hazzle with the equipment, clean-up, hiding it, etc. Seeing that I will be moving around some this year, clamping would be more stealthy for me and I want to try it one more time and see if I can make it work.

With pumping, I always perform ten minutes of jelqing before the 1st set in the pump. I wonder if that type of “warm-up” and pre-stretching of the tissues could in any way be beneficial in a clamping routine? In the past, I only warmed up and then put on the clamp.

Maybe I should start out superlight, with only 2-3 sets X 2-3 minutes? Increasing very slowly?

I have to admit that I may have been too speedy increasing volume in the past and that may explain some of my issues. Still, I recall some other members saying how they did not get clamping to work for them, so maybe it`s not for everyone? One guy said that clamping killed his erections for months and he did not do any PE except for kegels during that recovery period. Later, this guy added clamping and seemingly with great success and no issues. I also seem to remember that Sta-Kool said something about clamping not working for him.

Curious to hear if anyone got any input on this. Especially if there are guys that did not get it to work initially, but found a way around it. :)

Thanks in advance,

Renholder

I initially tried clamping about a year ago once or twice only and it killed my EQ so I stopped.

About 4 months ago I decided to try again and this time It seemed to work out great, built up to around 30mins a day 4 or 5 times a week.

I’m not sure what was different but I periodically go through weeks of low libido sometimes accompanied by depression and I reckon my first negative clamping experience coincided with one of these periods.
In the last week or so I’ve slipped into one of these low periods and clamping sessions and EQ are poor again.
I think clamping probably over any other method requires good EQ and generally feeling horny, I always found I could pump no matter how crap I felt but clamping seems more demanding.
It’s certainly quite fatiguing as well so it could just be the accumulation over the weeks that does the damage to EQ.

Dont know if that helps.

capernicus1,

Thank you.

I share your sentiment here. Pumping does not demand a strong erection or libido, such that it is easier to remain consistent during a slump. I have also suffered from libido issues and I don`t think it has helped my situation when clamping, although I`m not sure if it is the complete explanation.

Maybe a combination of the two could be the solution.

I haven’t tried combining the two mostly because of the extra hassle, like you I’m trying to keep it simple.

I have had success with taking things like ginseng and tribulus for libido and AAKG to help with the erections.

Also part of the problem could be that I haven’t gained anything yet so some of the excitement and enthusiasm has waned a bit.

Just thought I’d share that I’m surprised you guys find EQ to be so essential to being able to clamp. I find that if I clamp only just a semi I end up with the same expansion as if clamp erection because in both cases outflow of blood is more restricted than inflow, so same principle in effect whether you start with erection or not. BG, as I recall, in fact described clamping from semi. That’s where I got the idea. I liked it because takes less effort than working up erection, but as I say, minute or two later you’re just as expanded due to the simple physics of things.

I have evolved a way to keep my penis erect while clamping.

Massage the penis while watching a movie, or serie, or something else. The idea is to ignore to penis even tho you massage it. Somehow it make my penis grow to 110% as long I’m only focussing on the movie/serie while doing it.


Not updated progress in a long time.

I’ve tried many times to get the semi style of clamping to work but have had no luck with it, any advice or tips ?
No matter what level of constriction I use once the erection fades a bit it just goes totally soft.

Like capernicus, I never got this to work myself either. I may be mistaken, but if I recall correctly, BG said he clamped down erect, but then “forgot” about it since the expansion was the same even if he lost his erection. Not sure if that`s the same.

How do you clamp? Padding?

Bib also explained that with his ULI technique, which is similar, only a mild/moderate erection was needed and no sexual stimulation referring to the same mechanics as you (inflow vs outflow).

The ULI thing clamps down uniformly though and not just from each side. Maybe that`s the missing ingredient.

Interesting. Please share more if you can. How do you clamp and what kind of padding do you use?

I have tried both cable clamps and a metal hose clamp which is more like the uli device in that it’s round, still cant make it work .

It would be ideal to be able to clamp off and forget it for ten minutes without needing to look at porn, Bib talked about getting a “super engorgement” after some minutes and said that the stretch could be painful,

I must be missing something.

Clamping only works for me if I’m feeling horny. I can’t get decent expansion if I’m not. I’m often tired nowadays because of my work, so I’m not horny as often as I used to be. As a result, my PE isn’t going too well.

Yup, me too.

Interesting replies.

Some can clamp down a semi and get good engorgement, but it seems like most of us is dependent on being horny to perform it properly. That`s why it can be tough to do it in the long run if one is not naturally very horny or use some performance enhancer. I know members here have used Cialis on a daily basis when doing girth work. I think maybe I`ll look into citruline malate + AAKG first.

Another option could perhaps be to do it together with a girlfriend, but that`s not for everyone.

Anyways, I`m currently very happy with jelqing and pumping and it seems like I`m gaining, but I will probably give clamping one more shot some day. :)

I never got any permanent gains from erect clamping. I believe you don’t want to be rock hard so your penis can actually expand from the pressure.

When I’m rock hard there is NO WAY to expand my girth more than 0.1-0.25”. I have gained more girth from hanging than clamping, lol.

Different strokes for different people?

Braindrain have been very inspirational to me and inspired by him I`m focusing on perfect jelqing and then finish off with one set of pumping. Braindrain said that he did not believe clamping ever gave him anything else than a swollen penis, since he lost all his gains so quickly. For him, it was all about jelqing and I have to say that I agree. The expansion I get is very good and it feels safe.

With hanging, I got some base girth, but it seems like midshaft gains were not permanent. Swelling perhaps?
