In my opinion manual stretching is the superior method. Even average pull force is MUCH greater than anything that can be produced via hanging and any decently in shape guy can maintain a good pull for 10 min easy. I’ve built several different hangers and they’ve all disappointed me due to the inevitable loss of blood to the head. With an OK grip using the thumb, forefinger and middle finger it’s very easy to pull at 20 lbs average with a peak of 40 lbs (I test it via a simulated pulley setup) with almost zero loss of blood to the head. I’ve tried to come up with a hanger that grips my dick in the same way as I can with my hand and I just can’t for some reason. I think it’s because with my hand I can instantly adjust it if my grip is too tight and hurting my dick (even adjust while maintaining a pull) while with a hanger you have no choice but to take it off and readjust. Also with the guy marinera referenced you can generate a lot of force with fulcrum. I typically do a reverse grip and use my thumb as a fulcrum which is very easy to do. I also have a 3 ft long dowel rod that’s 3/4 of an inch thick which I wrapped the center in paper towels to provide a cushion (I pull very hard so only wood hurts and I taped the edge of the towels to the rod). Depending on what I’m doing I go for 10 minute sets of pulling with 5 minute rests between and I alternate hands between sets to give my arms a rest. I then go for a good two to three hours every other day. I then alternate those with girth work where I force myself to get an erection with a “cock ring” (well I tried that “ring of power” thing with the copper and zinc + medical tubing and it was the most useless thing I’ve ever made (I have low testosterone so I tried it a year ago) but I kept the tubing and zinc rod so I can make cock rings from it). Anyways so I have my cock ring and erection where I just edge myself to allow for maximum expansion. I leave the cock ring on all day some nights (DO NOT try this because I have made the perfect size cock ring for myself where I can lose my erection with the cock ring on in around 5 mins). I find the internal pain is the same with my cock ring and edging as clamping (I used to clamp a lot but it’s more trouble than it’s worth and the cock ring produces the same feeling and *better* (by far) expansion). I used to do a lot of PE a couple years ago (I’m 21 now) but I think I’ll start again soon. Gained a ton of length ~2 in but I’ve shrunk a bit so I’m down to 8.25 in now. My girth is kind of small by comparison (5.25) but I’d like gain what I lost back then gain another inch as well as gain an 1.25 in of girth. I just want to look good naked right now I have 16.25 in arms, 45 in chest with a 30.5 in waist at 6’ 2” (did it with a 300 to 400 ng/dL testosterone level) and I’d like to get a quite a bit bigger physically to probably 18.5 in arms, 50 in chest and a 29 in waist (I’m still kind of fat (fat is 15% bodyfat) so I think I can shrink my waist (also I have 17.25 inch calves so I don’t neglect my legs). So I think I need to get a longer dick to look more proportioned. Anyways stick to manual stuff. It’s better and safer. Just make sure to use heat (I forgot to add that at first).
