CLAMPING Everything You Ever Wanted To Know

Systematically but I usually know when there will be days that I cannot clamp. When I travel in my work or have a lot of customer meetings. Otherwise, I can do the exercises pretty well at work too.

Thanks for the help. Now I have two more questions and that will be it. 1) Why don’t you want to be completely erect when under clamp?
2) What are the signs that your dick has been over trained or you did enough clamping for the day?

1: In clamping for girth an erection is not important. What we are concerned with here is engorgement. As long as your dick is engorged with fresh oxygenated blood you are good to go. Doesn’t matter witch way it is pointing, up or down.

2. Once your glands are numb, or when you can no longer massage away the numbness easily, you are done for the day.

So what about after your done with your clamping session? Is it a sign that you may have done too much if your dick isn’t hanging heavy? Personally after clamping my dick feels worn out and not very full. I am starting to wonder if this is from being completely erect when under clamp.

Yep. Sounds like you are over working it. If you are all turtled up and are experiencing erection quality after a session you are over doing it. It took me years to build up to these ultra long sessions.

On another note: I made an important discovery today. It appears you can no longer get the neoprene wrist wraps, or at least I can’t find one. I’ve been using the same old strip of neoprene for years; it is getting so threadbare the Velcro teeth are biting through to the skin. I’m looking for some reasonable facsimile. The new wrist wraps, elbow and or knee wraps just don’t have the same elasticity. I just paid $11.00 for a Futro Elbow wrap, got it home and found it to be unusable, even after cutting the supports out. May have to go to Ace Bandage, either that or cut up a wet suite. If anyone finds a good replacement please post about it here.

I’ve written a thread on this.

I have been experimenting with preventing discoloration by wrapping with an ace bandage, and clamping with it on. I like to wrap fairly tight, but you can experiment with that. The higher the pressure you use, the tighter it needs to be to COUNTERACT the damage to the small blood vessels and capillaries.

Wrap first, then put on your neoprene wrap, and then the clamp or it.

You can either wrap just the shaft or include the glans. So far it seems like it hinders the clamping effect very little, but I’m keeping very hard the entire time.

It has been really effective at preventing both surface blood vessel damage AND discoloration.

The only drawback is I wonder if it will diminish the effect of clamping at lower pressure levels. You guys can give it a try and let us know.

The other issue I may as well bring up is percentage of elastin in the tunica. Some guys have a higher percentage of elastic fibers in the tunica than others. These, I suspect are the guys that get a lot of expansion during clamping. However, it doesn’t necessarily translate into faster gains,because it “snaps” back.

I think for these guys, the gains come when the elastic fibers “stretch” out. That should also result in a larger flaccid. This might respond better to the longer duration or total time of your clamping session, but I’m not sure of that.

So for you guys that hear about “two inch” expansion during clamping, but can’t get it no matter what, don’t be discouraged. I don’t think less elastic tunicas are less able to be expanded, I just think you will see the gains afterward, and not during your workout.

One last issue is clamping time per set.

There have been many guys that warn about a 15 minute time limit for safety. This concept started in relation to oxygen deprivation and tissue death. YET, there are guys who report much longer clamping times with no problems….what gives?

The answer is there are two basic categories of clamping when dealing with time limits.

1) Clamping that DOES NOT cut off circulation completely, hence maintaining at least some oxygen flow. This is evident by a HEALTHY RED COLOR AND NORMAL HEAT. For this category, longer times are allowed, as long as the penis has good color, temperature and sensation.

2) Clamping that DOES cut off circulation COMPLETELY. This CAN result in oxygen deprivation and ISCEMIA and will begin to cause tissue death after some period of time (not sure how long). This will be evident by darkening (eventually blackening), cooling to the point of coldness and numbness. For this category, a 15 minute time limit is wise.

Good stuff, Sparyx. I agree 100%. In the past I didn’t like the ACE bandage because of the texture, I always found the little crinkles irritating, but my shaft is a lot tougher now. I may have to give it a shot, not to prevent discoloration, (I like discoloration) but just for a decent stretchy wrap.

I think the main reason for such a high girth expansion is fluid build up.That is probably why the temporary girth gains disappear after a few days and fustrate many members.

Girtha: I have been using the futuro wrist support and have been pretty happy with it after modifying it a bit. I got 2 strips out of it, a bigger, thick one for the clamp wrap and a smaller thin one that I use to wrap my balls on occasion. You must have had a super wrap. I wish they would make the magnetic ones that I’ve read about on here available again. I think for a lot of us, not 7 inches in girth :D , the futuro wrist support could be the best bet.

I can attest to sparkyx’s wrapping method, very little discoloration, and no spotting in 3 weeks. Before I would always (ALWAYS) get spotting. The only problem I am having is staying erect for the whole 15 minutes. I know I don’t have to stay hard, I just prefer it.

For me, I find I can hold the pressure in better with two clamps at moderate compression rather than one clamp super tight. For me it seems to restrict outflow better while still allowing some inflow if I kegel really hard while pressing the clamp toward the fat pad.

The head of the penis always seems to get cold during clamping these days. I cannot remember that it was like that in the beginning.

Also, I continue to be cold many hours after (now it is 5 hours since the clamp and I am still cold) and don’t seem to get the heavy hang as you are talking about. It just feels as usual apart from the top being cold.

I understand how the engorgement should feel but I only get that during full erection after like 3-5 minutes into a clamp sessions. If the erection fades away, the engorgement also seem to fade. I can tell that from the change in colour of my penis.

But still, I’ve got some gains during the 3-4 months I’ve been clamping (0.3”) but it seems like I am not really getting the hang on it.

Try 2 weeks on and then take one week off.

Big Girtha, what can you say about more shorter sets compared to less longer sets (e.g. 9x5 minutes instead of 3x15 minutes)?


Start • 5.94''x4.92''

Now • 6.50''x4.96''

Goal • 7.00''x5.75''

Okay…an entire week off. I haven’t had that in a year. Maybe it is time then ;) .

But do you mean PE every day 14 days in a row and then 7 days off?
