Clamping. my concerns
Lately I have seen on this forum people saying they clamp longer than 10 min, or complain about having cold penis etc.
I was looking into some articles at medline today. Ishaemia (low oxygen because of low arterial blood flow) in penis long term will produce penile fibrosis (dead penis) similarly like Priapism does.
So my a advise is to strictly follow what was already said in clamping tutorial.
Most important things in my opinion are:
Clamping should be short. Not more than 10 minutes session.
Arterial flow should not be cut entirely. If penis is cold you have no arterial flow because clamp is too tight. You should clamp less tight and use kegels to sustain erection. Clamping should partially obstruct venous flow not arterial flow.
White guys should watch the penis color. Penis should not be too purple or even black. Black color is a sign on deep venous stasis (stagnation of a blood flow) which is even worse than plain arterial ishaemia.
Numbness and other strange feelings are also signs of ishaemia.
I would also suggest not to use any heating devises while clamping because you might not feel your penis becoming cold.
I wonder even if done corectly can clamping still lead to penile fibrosis long term? Do we have forum members with clamping history over a year?
I guess clamping might be a powerfull PE technique but it is a dangerous one.
