Case report
A 56-year-old Caucasian man presented himself to the Department of Genitourinary (GU) Medicine, with a history of penile tip swelling and a rash of a
few days duration. He gave a history of hypertension and taking a diuretic (bendrofluazide), a calcium channel blocker (cardura). He had noother medical history of note. He gave a history of being in a sexual relationship for the previous eight years with the last sexual intercourse some two weeks prior to clinic attendance. He indicated that he had attended another GU medicine clinic, where he was diagnosed as having non-specificurethritis (NSU).

On genital examination, inspection revealed a remarkable swelling of the penile shaft well beyond the parameters of normality. Most of the skin of the glans penis had lost its pigmentation and the parafrenular area showing atrophy and sclerosis. On palpation, the penile shaft was soft and oedematous superficially, but the underlying
penile body felt hypertrophic and fibrotic (with no tenderness). There was no evidence of inguinal, scrotal or inguinal-scrotal swellings or masses.
Initial in-house laboratory investigations, identified leucocytes in the first catch urine sample (by dip stick). A Gram-stained urethral smear, examined under high-power microscopic magnification, identified multiple white blood cells (WBCs): 10 WBCs/ high power field in five different fields.

There was no evidence of intracellular Gram negative diplococci, on the Gram-stained slide.

When the patient attended the clinic, for the follow-up visit, he spontaneously changed his medical history. He admitted to using elastic bands, to strangulate the penile shaft at the base, so as to maintain erection. He volunteered a history of suffering of penile tip flaccidity during erection, for the previous 25 years, leading to dissatisfaction during sexual intercourse. He admitted to using the elastic bands on a regular basis during every attempt of erection, over the previous 25 years. He reported that this procedure helped him to overcome the penile glans flaccidity, leading to a satisfactory erection. He also reported that the penile congestion does not return back to its original status (following the removal of the elastic bands) at the end of the erection stage. We took an informed consent for further assessment. We took measurements for the penile length in the flaccid state (measured 140 mm), and circumference (measured 130 mm) and in the patientinduced stretched state (measured 180 mm). We also gave the patient a chart to measure the penile length and circumference, during spontaneous erection, at home. He gave a chart showing penile length of 205 mm, and circumference of 165 mm at base, 145 mm at middle and 125 mm below the tip of the penis.

The gross penile enlargement in this case is the result of recurrent strangulation of the penile outflow vasculature for some 25 years. This patient’s case is unique on three accounts: (A) the long history of penile strangulation (leading to oedema and fibrosis), (B) the extent of penile enlargement (beyond recordable averages of published studies), and (C) the graded difference in penile circumference with more girth towards the area of strangulation, base (165 mm) as compared to middle (145 mm) and below the tip (125 mm). The subsequent lymphatic obstruction leading to fibrosis is synonymous with filariasis. The preservation of erectile function is also similar to that lymphatic obstruction reported in filariasis and hideradenitis suppurativa. The outcome of penile oedema and fibrosis was not part of the patient’s original intentions or plan, which was directed towards overcoming the penile tip flaccidity.

This seems really unhealthy. He probably didn’t start with the newbie routine first.

I get that lymphatic fluid build up at times myself. It doesn’t seem natural. Wow!

So are cock cushions a bad idea?

I noticed that when I used to clamp, I would bleed from my urethra sometimes when I would jelq. It was always the same day that I clamped but it was in the regular routine. After I stopped clamping thinking that is had no help in gains at all it hasn’t happened since. I used to think my grip was too tight so i loosened it up, well i can grip as hard as I want now and still nothing.

I noticed recently, since I stopped hanging two months ago, that when I jelq I get extreme (7”+) base girth, due in no small part to edema.

No EQ issues to report thankfully.


Began December 2009 at 5 7/8" length and 5" girth.

As of December 5th 2012 7 3/8" BPEL and 6 1/8" base girth.

Going for the magic 8"x6"

Hopefully it wont happen to me. I love girth work


Start: 17 Feb 2012, 8.25bpel x 4.92mseg; bpfsl=??; fl=6.5x4.5

Current: 29 April 2013, 8.875bpel x 5.8mseg; bpfsl=9.25; fl=7x5

Goal: 9NBP x 6.25mseg and the best EQ ever!

Based on what is in the report there is nothing that indicates anything abnormal or potentially dangerous. I think there had to be considerably more trauma than what is indicated. It would not matter how long he was practicing constriction of the penis to maintain an erect glans; this in an of itself would not be damaging, only if he left the constriction on for hours or slept in that condition would injury occur. What is reported is just a ‘walk in the park’ compared to what some do in the PE journey. Its not indicated beyond “elastic bands” what\or style of band being used, also in how many places he is applying stricture.

Its kind of a meaningless medical log in its present form since we do not have a methodology that was being employed. You would need exact time parameters and anything else he was doing. There are too many missing pieces.


Take anything and everything that DutyQuest has posted with a large grain of salt.

This description coincides with the reports of enlargement at the base as a result of clamping we usually can read here in Thunder’s Place.

It can also be an interesting testimony of the bad use of clamping during years and years: lymphatic obstruction and fibrosis. We have to consider too that this man used to clamp for having sexual intercourses, that is, he keeped the penis moving all the time.

And it shows something we yet know: clamping leads to hypertrophia (big growing) of the penis.

A bad kind of hypertrophia though. I am obliged to add, that this is not exactly clamping as we do as PEers since everyone will advice you to not remain clamped more than 10 minutes at time (even better 5 minutes), probably this guy kept way longer, having the momentanous benefit of less sensitivy due to having intercourse while clamped.

Neverthless, I found the article interesting because it both shows possible benefits of clamping (a bigger penis) and its risks (fibrosis etc.).

It does say the guys dick got bigger as a result, which could be taken as medical fact, but for the fact that they woulnt know how big it was before hand.

Shoulda done the newbie routine first… But in all seriousness it appears that this damage is a result of 25 years of clamping possibly with no actual knowledge of how clamping should be safely performed. This article may indicate that clamping becomes dangerous when performed for long periods of time, as the extreme stress placed on the penile tissue will eventually lead to damage rather than more growth. Anyway I certainly don’t plan to clamp for more than double my lifetime so I’m not worried about extreme damage to my penis.


Best of luck to all fellow PE-ers in their journey.
