CLAMPING Everything You Ever Wanted To Know

It’s important to recognise, though, that we’re all different. Look at the veins in erect dicks in the Members Pics and you’ll see that no two guys are the same. Some have lots of veins, some not many; some have veins when clamping that bulge heaps, others don’t. So, I reckon there is no single rule that fits all. Each of us must experiment and find out what works best for him.

As for me, I can clamp for an hour or more without any ill effect except for slight blueness that goes fairly quickly after I stop. No tingling, no undue swelling, no blisters, no popping veins, etc. And I find behind the balls far more effective than in front. For best effect, I need to edge for about half the time or I lose my erection, but that’s OK. If I lose my erection, it’s as if I don’t even have it on. If I tighten the clamp just one more click, I can turn dark blue and that’s not good. So, I find myself adjusting the clamp according to the degree of erection I’ve got and how blue it all is.

All that being said, I’m a VERY hard gainer and might even give up soon. I put on good growth when I first started, but am going nowhere much now. I have noted that I produce heaps of precum, though, when clamping (could be the edging). Too much precum seems to have the same effect as ejaculation and I can go into blot for 12 to 24 hours. So, I have to be careful.

I don’t understand what “blot” is, will you please explain? ( also, your dick should NEVER turn blue…. dude, be careful )


Paraphrased: It is not the critic who counts: The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, who, at the best, knows the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.

Sorry, there is a word that describes what happens after ejaculation and I can’t think of it. Basically, it means that your sex drive drops substantially for a few hours after sex. This problem increases with older guys, but not all. If I ejaculate too much too often, sometimes I can’t even get an erection for a day or so. Certainly there are no morning woods. Does that help.

As an older guy, I find that if I don’t cum, but have an extended time of good sex with lots of precum (like with a couple of hours edging), the same thing seems to happen. I might as well shoot my bolt and be done with it.

Some guys here talk about their dick “turtling” and I reckon its the same thing. If your sex drive is up, your dick is nice and plump, showing itself off and signalling that it wants action. If there has been too much action, it shrivels up a tad, saying it has had enough for a while. It’s probably hormonal.

Sounds like you’re referring to the refraction period in which the penis is not able to respond to any type of stimulation.

Yep, that’s the word I was looking for. Cheers.

Sorry the other guys are not paying attention, but YES they are the same product. Look close at the clamp and inside the sides you will see ”www.cableclamp.com” molded into them in small print. ”Cable Cuff” seems to be the name printed on them for sale at Home Depot.

Clamping Issues

After years of PE (I’ve been at it on and off since 1999) last year I finally got the nerve to do some clamping, and after 5 months of slowing building up the time and intensity I stopped - not because I wanted to, but because I was running into some uncomfortable and annoying issues that I have seen little reference to in the 66 pages of this thread (yes, I’ve read them all).

I began my clamping journey with all the warnings this threads and other provide: “clamping is dangerous, newbies beware!” But I’ve been doing one form of PE or another for the past 10 years, I’ve done the newbie routine before and didn’t particularly care for it, so this time around I started with clamping, but really slow and mild and very controlled, building up to the recommended 10mins x 3 sets. I started with 3 mins x 3 sets and very quickly saw my EQ skyrocket, I loved the exercise, enjoyed the edging that I would do during and in between sets, but I ran into a problem. All of the posts on clamping seemed to suggest that I could just clamp and leave it alone and that if I was clamped tight enough, my penis would just keep a good engorgement even if I lost my erection. My experience was that this simply wasn’t the case.

Over the course of next 3 months I struggled to get a good engorgement for each session, experimenting with many different wraps and levels of clamp tightness, but more often than not I would be fighting a battle to keep my engorgement, one that if I left alone would go flaccid and fall loose within the clamp, the engorgement dropping to below normal erection level, no matter how tight my clamping or what material or tightness of my wrap. This was frustrating, but with constant stimulation (edging) I was able to get an adequate engorgement of ~0.25” that was showing results, slow but steady results - my girth went from 4.5” to 4.75” in my 5 months of clamping, and has stayed there, cemented, in the past four months since I stopped PE.

After the first 3 months of experimenting with different wraps and adjusting clamp tightness, I was finally able to find a clamping technique that seem to “lock in” my engorgement. It was pretty simple - just get hard, clamp as close to the base as possible, and while clamped off, push the clamp further down towards the base and kegel, and then release the push down, letting the clamp slide back up a bit - repeating this a few times mixed in with some mild stimulation would keep my erection super hard and well engorged - 0.25” to 0.375” (I would measure multiple times every session to see how much engorgement I was achieving with each set). What was awesome about this was how the push down and kegel seemed to engorge my base so much that the clamp wouldn’t slide back up much when I released the kegel, so it was stay nice and tight really low on the base. I was still making steady gains, but I started having some side effects that were disconcerting, and ultimately what made me give up clamping for the time being.

After finally finding a clamping technique that was very consistent in it’s engorgement effect, I started noticing a strong discomfort emanating from my left testicle. It was subtle at first, but built up over time, increasing to a sharp ache, sometimes dull ache, feeling very uncomfortable and distracting, making me worry about my clamping activities and possible permanent consequences. I was able to push through that, thinking it might be unrelated, or that it would go away on it’s own, but after developing a small hard bump on my shaft the size of a pin head, I decided to take a break, and a couple weeks later, the testicle ache was gone and the hard tiny bump was not to be found. Returning to the clamping that I love (It’s such an amazing feeling, and seeing it so big and engorged is so encouraging and invigorating!) I unfortunately found the testicle pain to almost instantly return as did the hard bump. This was after 4 months of slowly building up from 3 mins x 3 to 8 mins x 3 at medium intensity - I never really pushed too hard or fast, I never saw my dick turn blue or any crap like that. And from what I’ve read here, 0.25” expansion is not that extreme - so to have this pain, that based on several breaks and restarts, was very directly related to my clamping, made me even more frustrated. Walking around everyday feeling like I’ve been kicked in the balls just wasn’t worth the potential returns of increased girth, as much as I wanted the gains, and as much as I enjoyed the experience of clamping. So I stopped after 5 months and 0.25” increase.

So here I am, 4 months later missing it - missing the feeling of solid engorgement, missing the amazing EQ I had while clamping, but most importantly missing the knowledge that I was doing what many believe to be impossible and making my cock bigger and thicker, a cock I could be really proud of - knowing I made it happen, not genetics, not some twist of fate, but a beautiful cock crafted by my own hard efforts. So please, if anyone has any advice on what I should be doing to get a good engorgement without a high-pressure erection, or what I should do to avoid this odd testicle pain (anyone else experienced this?) or how to avoid these hard bumps (I was using EVO the whole time, and plenty of massage and resting and only 3-4 sessions a week) I would greatly appreciate it. Again, I have read all 66 pages of this thread, and pretty much all the threads I could find on clamping, so something new and insightful would be of the most help.

Thanks much,
Dcking.

Ok. I got a couple of questions. Even though I’m nowhere near ready to clamp I still wanna know about some of this stuff for future reference. I read on a different thread regarding clamping that there are extra things you can do while clamping. One is the clamp & bend. I get what I’m supposed to do but what are you getting out of it? Secondly, the clamp & jelq. I read in a lot of the posts where guys said that their erection would subside while in the clamp. Now is that when you do the jelqing or is it immediately after the session?

Be careful about extra exercises while your unit is clamped, expercially the bends. They might help but I am not sure how much. What I try to do to stay erect is to do piss pulls.

Another reason why erections subsides is that people don’t clamp off hard enough. One good rule is that if you can move the clamp up and down on your penis, you are not clamping off enough. I can hardly move it at all and when I am in that state, my erection only subsides to about 80-90% and that is ok.

One question, how important is warm-up/down when clamping? I have cheated a lot when I clamp (usually because I thought I didn’t need it) but lately, I feels like the penis is better engorged and that I do not get the red dots as easily as before. Perhaps it is also better for gains? Commens?

I don’t do any warm-up but I will do a warm-down. Unless you count that I only clamp immediately after waking up a warm-up? But a warm-down I always immediately go take a hot bath after clamping. I have found this makes my flaccid much larger for the whole day and it clears out some of the fluid buildup.


My name is sarcastic.

Warm up is very important in my opinion, but warm down not as much.

That’s what I think too and I have not been doing a lot of warm-up. My hope is that if I now apply that, I might gain some more in girth. Would love to reach my goal of 5,5” some day. It is at least worth trying!

Hi,

Is clamping just like putting on a cock ring???

Are you really able to wear this clamp on you erect or semi-erect penis in public under trousers? I cant believe this, this is not really hidden…


My goal: from 11.9 cm NBPEL to 18 cm NBPEL (~7 ") ...now or never...!!!! after 5 weeks(and a long break): 12.5 cm NBPEL

It is not really like putting on a cock ring as the cock ring does not clamp off properly. A real clamp cuts off the entire flood of stream back to your body and is attach a lot harder.
