Homemade all-day stretcher advice -- I'm overwhelmed with the different options here
Hi all. I was moderately active here for a little while about two years ago. I was planning to follow an ADS routine, possibly supplemented with jelqing and manual stretching. Well, that didn’t work out, primarily because I was (and sort of still am) an unmotivated sack of crap. I had bought an AndroPenis stretching device for some ridiculous amount of money. One of the big problems that I had with the AndroPenis ADS was that it’s bulky as hell, especially if you do it the way they want you to, and it doesn’t hold on very securely. Combined, these two problems prevented me from wearing the ADS to class or to work as I had originally planned. What I want to do in this post is lay out the problem I’m having at the moment, discuss the ways I’ve tried to solve it, and talk about what kinds of solutions would or would not work for me. I have read the newbie threads; I have searched the site for ADS advice.
My problem at the moment: the AndroPenis is the best ADS I’ve tried, and it still isn’t very good. In its stock configuration, it has a silicone tube with a flat paddle in the middle. Around this, one is supposed to put a hollow foam tube that cushions the penis and prevents blood flow from being cut off. There’s three problems with this set-up: first, it doesn’t work very well. If I manage to keep it on for an hour, the head of the penis becomes rather blood-deprived and extremely cold. Note that the Andropenis (AP from here on) is intended to be worn for 4-9 hours a day, 1.5 hours at a time. Second, it doesn’t want to stay on. It has been attached securely, only to slip off gradually and come loose, many, many times. Finally, the device itself is relatively bulky, and the cushioning makes this problem much worse. Because the AP is flat, it can look even in tight pants like a cell phone or wallet in the pocket. With the cushioning on, though, it’s pretty clearly penis-shaped because of the large bulge where the head is.
SO WHAT I NEED IS THIS: an ADS that allows for consistent and progressively-increasing tension for at least six hours in a day. It should be relatively unobtrusive, not painful, and it shouldn’t be extremely difficult to put on. I’d like to be able to wear it at least an hour at a time with no problems.
WHAT I’VE TRIED: I’ve tried the AP, obviously. I’ve tried several modifications to it: I’ve used it without the cushion (still slipped, still blood-flow problems). I’ve trimmed the paddle on the silicone tubing so it extends below, but not above, the round part of the tubing. This allows it to fit under the glans (fixed the slipping, blood-flow problems slightly better). I’ve used self-adhesive bandaging wrapped around the penis as a cushion (very painful to remove, still slipped). I’ve tried the ChickenChoker extender (just as bulky as the AP, same blood-flow problems, less consistent, easier to put on). I’ve tried a thin rope with a cord clamp (the kind on gym bags, etc) with tissue paper on the rope as a cushion (THIS HAS GIVEN ME THE BEST RESULTS SO FAR: easy to attach, can wear for about 45 minutes at a time, less blood-flow problems, comfortable, not super bulky).
SOLUTIONS I’M OPEN TO: I’m willing to spend $100 for something that will absolutely, positively work the way I need this to. I’m open to making it myself. I don’t mind noose-type fasteners, so long as they’re not super constricting and thin. I’d rather not do one of those “between the cheeks” or ADS belt kind of things, because it doesn’t seem consistent to me like the AP and similar extenders are. I’d like something like the AP/Penimaster style of extenders that isn’t super conspicuous and stays on without killing my penis.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
