Cool Tie for Warm Up
It’s about to start getting real hot in my next of the woods. Remaining cool is a constant struggle when spending a lot of time outdoors. Recently my girlfriend brought home a few “Cool Ties” that she bought from a local craft show. A Cool Tie is basically a flat piece of cloth 2” wide by about 40” long that’s filled with a bunch of small water crystals. Water crystals absorb up to 400 times their weight in water, and expand to make clear gel-like crystals. 1 oz. of polymer crystals will absorb up to 1 gallon of distilled water.
What you do is place the cool tie in a bowl of cool water for 30 minutes or so and it swells up and fills out the cloth as the water crystals soak up the water. Then you tie it around your neck and stay cool for up to 2 hours. Once the coolness wears off, you simply put the tie in the fridge for another 30 minutes and it’s ready to go again.
Anyways, I was reading on the instructions included with the ties, and it stated that the ties can also be used to retain heat. Of course my mind immediately turned to PE and using the tie for warming up prior to a PE session. All you have to do different is soak the tie in a bowl of warm water instead of cold. It should retain the heat throughout your entire workout (within limits). The crystals will stay inflated for 4 or 5 days before you have to re-soak it in a bowl of water again. During that time, just pop the tie in the microwave for less than 10 seconds and you’re good to go.
One thing I really like about the cool tie is that I can wrap it around the base of my dick (and ligs) fairly tight so that it stays on during my entire PE session. Constant heat!
Another great benefit to using the cool tie as a hot wrap is that there’s a good reason for having it around the house. If your partner/family asks what the heat is for, just tell them that your neck is bothering you and the heat relaxes the tension.
You can purchase the Cool Tie from a lot of websites on the net. One site I found with online ordering that looks decent is papaswarehouse.com.
Also, if you’re feeling crafty you can buy the crystals separately and build your own cool tie (hot wrap). One site I found that sells the water crystals separately is The Artistic Shop.
