How I Clamp
I was explaining my clamping method to Thoughtfulgold and he suggested it may make a good post on it’s own. So here goes.
For the padding I cut a 1.5cm piece of ‘K-Flex 9 x 32mm x 1m Fire Rated Elastomeric Pipe Insulation’. So a little over 1/2 and inch in width.
I apply this low down on the penis. This is a balancing act as if I place it too low the clamp rolls forward and off the padding.
I then apply the clamp with the hinge under the penis. I take care not to get the padding jammed in the ratchet.
I start at 1 click and begin to get erect. Once I have some erection I push the clamp into the base of the penis, kegel and add another two clicks (while I am still holding the Kegel and still pushing the clamp into the base). This forces the blood from behind the clamp into the penis. I repeat this process until I get to a point where I can push the clamp into my base and feel the clamp going deeper however when I release it the clamp is tight enough to not let blood out quickly. This provides a strong pressure in the penis and for me the pressure is quite pleasurable.
While applying additional clicks for have to check to ensure the padding isn’t getting bunched up and popping out from under the clamp. If this happens you can either restart the clamp or in some cases you can push the padding back under the clamp with your fingers.
When I first started this I needed all 10 clicks to get to the point where the blood only leaks out slowly. Now I only need 8 clicks for the same effect, so that is positive.
When I reach the point described above I maintain some stimulation and every so often I push the clamp into the base and Kegel. This can require some force and will apply a lot of force onto the clamp. After breaking the ratchets on two clamps while pushing into the base and Kegeling, I realized if I supported the sides of the clamp while I pushed down this took pressure of the ratchet and prevents it breaking.
Obviously this is a pretty intense method and you need to work out if this is for you. I have been doing this for a year or more and to date have not had any problems.
I started out with 10 minute sets by 4 but this seemed to draw in a lot of fluid so I backed of the 7 minute sets.
As is usual I didn’t take an accurate starting girth as I was more interested in length, however from memory I was 12 cm (4 3/4 inches) girth before I started back at PE. I am now 13.5cm (5.25) if I have a good EQ. I made it above 13.5 with a particularly strong erection recently. Even if my memory is wrong as to my starting girth I have defiantly seen 12.5 -13.5cm increase (5-5.25 inch).
My current routine is 2 by 7 min pumps using a Handsome-up (cheap) pump. Followed by 2 by 7min clamps, with the time starting from when I get the maximum pressure. (I usually time 8 minutes as unless you have a second hand on your devise you may cut the session short depending on where you started in the previous minute. (i.e. If you reach full clamp at the 55 second mark then look away from the clock you have missed almost a minute.)
I have also seen length gains of over .5cm probably close to 1cm. I used to have to ram the ruler into my pubic bone to measure 17.7cm (7 inch). Yesterday I pushed it an and measured 18.4 (7.25 inch).
Hope this is of use.
