Clamping Tightness

Clamping Tightness

What clamping tightness do you guys prefer? What do you think are the pros and cons of how tight the clamp is? What tightness gives you the best gains? Or what tightness do you use and how much have you gained from that style of clamping?

I have experimented with the whole range.

10 clicks, the full close, is conveniently the max for me. I can close it, but it’s a hard squeeze to get it closed. I only use it when I want an extremely tight seal that won’t leak, and stays hard. Can feel wrong sometimes, and also sometimes leads to spots. I use it rarely, but it’s what I use when doing an intense one-off IPR workout for example. Also think I can work length with this by making a really tight seal at the base, then adding a bunch of clamps all the way up the shaft. And there’s a head girth exercise I do with it as well.

9 clicks is what I use when I want a tight seal, it gets really hard, but might have some backflow. Never feels wrong. Will still go cold eventually. I still get full length, and I can do a lot of the same stuff I do at 10 clicks, but with less risk. However since there will be backflow, the sets are time limited at 9 clicks.

7-8 clicks is my bread and butter for squeezing and edging. Somewhere between the two is the line where I get continuous and “full” circulation, by which I mean the unit stays fully warm, and there’s no oxygen deficiency. Do most of my clamping in this range. The intensity of the squeezes at less overall pressure, so the workout can go longer. Also I think if I squeeze at 9, it just causes a lot of backflow faster, and I end up just squeezing with the same overall inflation, but less circulation.

5-6 clicks still get a clamp effect but it’s not as hard, but big and floppy, and shorter. I get my best girth readings at this range, just edging around 6 clicks. I think some of this extra girth is fluid. Why there would be more fluid at lower tightness I can only guess. I don’t use this range much, maybe I should though.

All my clamps have two layers of neoprene glued to the sides, and I’m at 4.8” EG currently.

I clamp very carefully and clicks are always dependent upon erection level and feel. The pressure is very real when clamping so I stay mindful of pressures just before and immediately after the clamp points. I keep it conservative, which might mean slow gains, but avoiding the injury takes center stage for me.

Could mean faster gains too. A lot of guys have gained big just by clamped edging with some manuals with I suspect a fairly “loose” clamp effect.

I always appreciate your open mind BD. The first time I ever felt what I would consider an injury was from clamping; however, I know any exercise can provide that unfortunate result if not practiced conscientiously. I believe the negative feedback was nerve related resulting from pushing to the next click, using what I would consider a fair amount of *”my natural brute throw down power”. I rested for a couple weeks and came back with a softer touch.

*for the record this equates to the strength of a small child.

If we’re on the same page that would correspond with 10 clicks for me - where I have to work for the click. That’s the tightest I can go, and there are sometimes negatives with it. But just one click looser than that and no problems ever.

I was getting huge temporary expansion but unfortunately none of it became permanent. Before my last deconditioning break, under two clamps I was getting up to 5.3” MEG.

My clamps are medium sized with the possibility of 10 clicks each. I used to start clicking them with partial erection, I would say around 50% with a quite large wrapping underneath. That said, after looking at them, I used to do 7 clicks each.

What really got my expansion going was the erection level before start clicking. I’ve had some attempts starting with full boner before the clicks, but had close to none expansion.

When I clamped I got it as tight as possible. I tried doing it so I could still kegel blood in but didn’t find it as effective.

And if memory serves, you stopped clamping from an injury.

Tight as possible is 10 clicks for me, I know because when I use a wrap, then I get there at 9 clicks, and it feels the same. And I couldn’t get another click even if I used both arms.

Just a theory: the tissue is fully compressed. Further compression leads to crushing of soft tissue cells, like blood vessels and urethra. Which is also the “benefit” of clamping as tight as possible. The blood vessels are fully compressed, the blood is trapped, no leaks, full seal, etc.

I used to do 10 clicks but now I can’t get past 9. I call that progress.

I used to find at less than maximum clicks I got excessive fluid up to 7 inches. I clamp 8 to 9 clicks in my I phase.

I can kegal while pushing the clamp into the pubic bone and get a massive pressure as I release the push.

Yes you are correct. I started doing excercises while fully clamped. I can’t risk injury so I gave up clamping for good.

Hopefully more people will chime in about injuries and how tight they were clamping. So far, it seems like 3 of us have had “injuries” or feelings from clamping that we were uncomfortable with - but only when we were at “tight as possible” tightness. My personal experience is that even 1 click below this, the risk of injury goes WAY down. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that the vast majority of all clamping injuries have occurred on the “tight as possible” click only. There is an effective range of 4-5 more clicks looser than this that are probably safe.

Since starting this post, I’ve been working at 4 clicks less than “tight as possible” and doing two handed Uli squeezes. The clamp is loose, but it helps enough to get an intense manual workout that rivals the effect of much tighter clamping, without too much strain or pain on the hands. The Uli grip is tighter than the clamp, so the hands determine how much inflation there is, and they also control the pressure.

This could turn into a really useful thread, not enough discussion on clamping technique.

Apart from how tight the clamp is the other variable I found was the amount of give in the wrap, too firm doesn’t seem to work well and too spongy doesn’t either.
Both affect the relative tightness of the clamp itself.

I’m still using camco clamps which are a bit different but measured against a cable clamp the inner circumference or amount of closure I use is about the same, with a single layer of 4mm neoprene glued to a cable clamp I get about 4 clicks and no further, the camco lets you tighten way more but it’s too painful.

I’ve been clamping for years and years. There was, about 8 years back, a period where I was getting a small amount of blood coming out my urethra after what I’m sure would be considered an extreme session. I soldiered on, deciding to not worry about it, and it simply stopped after about two years. Only once or twice since then have I managed to apply enough force to get a few drops of blood.

I now use the cable cuff that has a 9 inch inside diameter at the first click, which is already tight, and click it down to about 7 and a half inch inside diameter, over padding that provides about another inch of constriction.(Not so tight as to prevent back-flow, but still as tight as I can make it by hand.) I start the session by first rolling on my namba, which is crucial to getting my base to engorge which allows me to set the clamp as far down as can go. Also before I set the cable cuff I put a sort of pre clamp on by stretching several turns of 2 inch wide bicycle tubing around my base extending up 4 inches. (Slightly tighter at the bottom than the top.) It allows me to collect even more base, as it can be wrapped in such a way that is near impossible to achieve with just a neoprene sleeve. So, at this point, before the camp is set, my entire unit, excluding the glans, is under pressure, and fully engorged.

This practice, along with pumping in my custom cylinder, has been highly effective for me, and even with the extreme methods I apply I’ve never had what I thought was more than a minor injury, and only a very few of those. To this day I am seeing continued results. My erections are harder than ever before, with base expansion that is, from what I can tell, unprecedented. And yes, invariably, a clamping/pumping session will result in some amount of edema. I don’t see this as a problem, as it does nothing to detract from the experience. It seems only to enhance it. I don’t get but a very small amount of donut effect, which I also enjoy as it makes initial penetration a bit more challenging, and it provides for a more secure fit inside my lover that helps to hold me inside her, and also provides her a bit of relief from the initial stretch on her vaginal opening. My large base girth is never a problem for her as she is free to deal with it in what ever way she chooses. I’ve learned not to force the issue.

One thing I’ve learned about base development that may be insightful, is that it occurs in a part of your organ that generally is never outside your pelvic floor. It took many, many years for me to realize it even existed. I’ve managed to pull it out, so that now, while flaccid, I can feel most of the deflated structure residing in my scrotum. When it becomes engorged it essentially adds three inches in length to my overall erection. This isn’t to say that it adds length when doing a pubic bone pressed measurement, that doesn’t change. What happens is length is created in the opposite direction - so to speak. This is why I suggest, among other things, building custom cylinders that are shaped more like a shoe, at least in regard to how the opening is placed on the cylinder.

For those that have no idea what I’m talking about, simply search my posts as I’ve already spoken extensively on all these topics.

I like to use two clamping techniques, the key component for both is super high libido.

I guess one is around your 9 click method. If i put a compression device on i will get backflow 50% of the time. I go about my business keeping my sex mind somewhat present and eager. At 3 or five minute intervals I’ll reingorge and push clamp back without ever touching clicks, so there’s inflow as gravity keeps increasing it, and i can stimulate to increase it.

9 or 10 clicks I consider dangerzone because you can compress to hard to fast and the blood literally can’t escape.

I also like seven clicks. I add a very intense uli and remain safe because blood can escape. This is the zone where i can create some extreme pressure for about a minute before i lose to much blood. Then without touching the clicks re stimulate right to release again and then uli very hard again. Libido has to be high because there’s some discomfort.

All in all I’d say adding compression to the clamp is necessary and can be safe if you know your limits.

On a side note when I started clamping over two years ago I read to clamp with the hinge facing right or left of the shaft i.e. parallel to the ground. I could close the hinge all ten clicks with a neoprene wrap underneath. After 5 months of no gains I gave up clamping for over a year.

When I started clamping again about 6 months ago I saw members clamping pics and the hinges where on the underside or the CS so I switched to this Orientation. I have made some gains and now I only click between the 5 to 8 click range and sometime with multiple clamps up to 3 at a time.

My point being, trying a different clamp orientation worked wonders for me.
