When I have made great gains, I...

OK, here’s a perfect example of what NOT to do!

If you have been following this thread, you may remember that I was experimenting with clamped pumping. Actually, I was making great gains with STRAPPED pumping.

I was using these velcro straps, as a clamp, then pumping with a larger than usual hard on from the strap. Very much like a clamp.

Anyway, I had made about 1/4 inch gain in like 2-3 weeks, and was very enthusiastic.

Then I remembered my medium clamp, and I thought I would try fitting my whole package in the clamp with no wraps…then clamp.

Holy moly…I had forgotten how well clamping like that can work! I added the pump and man alive…I was off and running! It looked and felt so damn good, I did it about 5 times that day for at least 10-15 minutes each!

Well, the results were indeed amazing! I didn’t think you could make changes that quick…as a matter of fact, I was shocked.

I had LOST over 1/2 inch! At first I thought I was not measuring correctly. After about 4 days of measuring, it was clear…ONE HALF INCH LOST! I also had been getting great morning and nite wood up until then, that also decreased dramatically.

Well, it was clear that it was a tissue contraction reaction do to over traumatizing my unit.

I realized that was what it was, so I cut way back, and slowly I started to return to normal. It took about 2 weeks, and it all came back except about 1/8 inch.

So, I haven’t been pumping lately, just haven’t had the time. I just have been jelquing in the morning for about 10 minutes, when I first get up.

All the PI’s have been good, I haven’t measured because, I do that in the pump at 5 in hg, against the lines that I have marked on my pump.

I recently read the concept of speed jelquing, I liked the concept of a jelque stretch, like an impulse jelque stretch. It made sense to me, so I tried it…I like it!

The one thing is, it is more intense than the regular jelque for me, and even though I kept it to about 8 minutes, I found that the next day I had diminished PI’s.

That is, decreased erections in morning and at nite.

So what does Uncle Sparky say to do in that case? Thats right, reduce your PE until PI’s return!

What did Uncle Sparky ACTUALLY DO? Uncle Sparky just got his PE wts( like specialized golf wts) in the mail, and couldn’t resist wearing it all freakin’ day!

So boys and girls…what do you think has happened to Uncle Sparky?

Yes, thats right…Uncle Sparky has had almost NO nitely and morning wood!

So kids, what have we learned from all this? Uncle Sparky is an idiot? Well, thats partially correct…

The big thing to remember is to do what Uncle Sparky SAYS, not what Uncle Sparky DOES!

Apparently Uncle Sparky can’t keep his hands off his unit any better than the rest of you!

Now if Uncle Sparky is SMART (bets can be taken at this point), he will leave his friggin’ dick alone for a few days until normal PI’s return.

Then start back in with half the time on speed jelque and hanging, THEN observe his PI’s and adjust his routine accordingly.


a really nice post, especially since I can see so much of my own errors in it.. can’t… resist…… ARRRRGH! ;)

Does anybody have an explanation to why it is so hard to simply step back for a few days / weeks ?
Freaking hell, these must be signs of a PE addiction ;)


She said you had a small dick huh? Well just remind her of what Tom Arnold said about his soon to be ex-wife, Roseanne, when she said very publicly that he had a little dick - "Hell, even a 747 looks small when you put it in the Grand Canyon". START: 2004-12-06 EBPL 6.70" BPEL, EG 5" CURRENT STATUS: Full Healing Break (Plasticized ligaments need time to heal -- Beware the rotating manual stretches ;) ) 2005-01-07 EBPL 7.68", EG 5" GOAL: EBPL 8.5" (ENBPL 7.9"), EG 6"

Funny you would say that.

I think it is an addiction by two mechanisms.

1) I believe much of proper PE releases endorphins or some similar chemical in the brain…similar to porn addition. I becomes our favorite “drug”.

2) The belief that if you back off you may lose some gains, or that if you do “just a little more” you will see better gains.

If your like me, a “little” can turn into a “lot”! Especially if you have some time on your hands. ( with your unit IN your hands :) )

Thats’ one of the reason I yell at you guys to do what you have logically “decided” ahead of time…then LEAVE YOUR DICK ALONE!!!!

Its like being a successful bodybuilder or gambler…you have to have the discipline to walk away, or else you’ve ruined!


Sparkyx, et al. -

Maybe less really is more. Been remodeling my office bldg over the last month so very little time for intense PE. Maybe get an hour a day in the penimaster plus 30 minutes of pumping every other day or so. Measured at New Years and observed significant gains (from 6.7 BPEL late November to just at 7.0). I did wear a Homedics MagTherap strap quite a bit - seems to have quite a positive effect.

Sparkyx, just exactly what type of velcro strap are you using when you are pumping and, could a cock ring work just as well?



Hey MrTips!

Good to hear from you.

The strap is some sort of cable or wire organizer sold at WalMart. Comes in a pack of about 10. Double sided and about 1/4 inch wide and about 10-12 in long. Works real well.

Could a cock ring work? Of course. The main problem being that you get pretty large with this technique, and you may not be able to get the ring off before you have seriously overtrained.

What makes the velcro strap good is I can slip the tube under it, at where the strap goes over the top of the base of my unit. (Man that sounds confusing!)

Remember, I find strapping both the cock and balls to work best. So the lower part of the strap is under my balls, and only the upper part of the strap gets in the way of the cylinder. With the strap, I can slip the tube under it.

Actually what seems to work best and get the least skin pinch, is to get hard, get in the tube, THEN put the strap on over the top of the base of the tube, and under the tube, under my balls.

I know that sounds hard to follow, but if you try it, it will be obvious.

With a cock ring, you may be able to fit the whole thing in the tube.

The real problem with clamped pumping is sealing the base and not getting a awful skin pinch. With the hard cable clamp can really get you pinched if your not careful.

If you can pull that off, it can create tremendous net expansive forces, so you can probably only use short times productively (ask me how I know!). Keep the vacuum at 3 in hg or less until you see how you react. If your dick explodes because you went higher…don’t say I didn’t warn you!


I’m beginning to think that the reason the Homedics works is because of the magnets! I think they decrease inflammation reaction and help speed healing, thus allowing you to recover and gain from you (usually) overtraining.

Have you tried incorporating the PIs into your PE?

I can almost guarantee it will be helpful to your progress! If you made gains from less, that means you have been overtraining, just like almost everybody else.

Start reading your PIs and adjust your routine. You know, I have found that about 10 minutes of jelquing is all I can recover from on a daily basis?

I want to get back to the strapped pumping, because I was making some great gains, but I’ll probably limit that to 5-10 minutes a day and see how I react to that.

The speed jequing has also caught my attention.

So many experiments that need to be performed…and only ONE DICK! This can be time consuming!

Thanks for the post and stay in touch,


Hi Sparkyx,

Your descriptions are quite clear. Turns out I have one or two packages of those cable ties (Velcro) in my parts bin. As for PI, do you mean occurances of nocturnal wood or morning wood - not sure of the term PI.



PI = Philippine Islands. They are a group of over 7000 islands in southeast Asia, just north of Maylaysia.

What this has to do with making your dick bigger, I do not know. You’ll just have to ask sparkyx.


I thought PI = Private Investigator.


Now I’m lost. I thought PE was making sparkyx’s detective bigger.

“Only if your private dick is investigating the local action in the Pubic Region!”

She said you had a small dick huh? Well just remind her of what Tom Arnold said about his soon to be ex-wife, Roseanne, when she said very publicly that he had a little dick - "Hell, even a 747 looks small when you put it in the Grand Canyon".

Earlier in the thread I went into depth of what they are.

Simply, Physiologic Indicators. Those indicators that can tell you whether you’re overdoing it, under doing it or nailing it.

General ones are things like nite and morning wood, flaccid hang, what your unit looks like after a workout, post work out contraction, and for how long.

Once you start paying attention to the PIs’, you can then determine what they mean to YOU! Whether they are positive or negative for YOU.

For example, if you get contraction after your workout, along with decreased nite and morning wood…plus you are getting no or very little growth…you can probably read contraction for you as a negative PI.

Lets say you cut back on your PE by half, and you find instead of the contraction lasting all day, maybe it only last 30 minutes…followed by a fluffing of your flaccid hang.

Lets say that you then hang longer and heavier all day.

Lets further say that you now start getting improved or excellent nite and morning wood.

This is a very good indicator that you don’t want your post PE contraction to last more than 30 minutes.

Final proof would be increased size gains. Gains are where speculation end and facts step in.

You can then assume that the contraction that last more than 30 minutes (for you), is an indicator of too much trauma.

I think that probably it is safe to say that decreased morning and nite wood is a excellent PI for everyone.

Things like contraction and flaccid hang has to be assessed by the individual in relation to THEIR GROWTH.

Growth is the ultimate and final word in PIs’. If growth is excellent, then all the other observed PIs you have can be interpreted as good.


Oh btw sparkyx,

I like to call the PI PFI (as in “Penile Fitness Indicator”)..

It has a nice touch of “psi”, too (a measure to tell the amount of pressure in a tire) ;) ).

Hey sparkyx, I think I’ve found a PI for my routine!

You may remember I said that the PI’s were a little coarse for the routine I was on since it was too mild to induce soreness or loss of function. Well I’ve been monitoring BPEL throughout the last week or so and I think I’ve found a correlation. BPEL for me can vary a little based on whether I’m tired or all “erectioned out”, but I’ve noticed something that I’m going to keep an eye on over the coming weeks:

Immediately after exercise I can usually measure a slight BPEL gain if I get erect quick enough and before everything cools down, but very soon this opportunity window diminishes. Day 2 may be even shorter, but Day 3 (day before exercise) the BPEL is back up there at max recorded level. This means I’ll be training in the morning.

I noticed this same upside down bell curve on the previous workout a week back, so it may be a pattern. If it does turn out to be a pattern then rather than counting the interval days I will switch to using max BPEL recorded as my guide to when to exercise. I have a sneaky suspicion that the next 7 days might be the week I finally hit 7.5” BPEL :D
