New Stretcher Contraption

Zekeman

I appreciate the reply. I am very excited about your design, well thought out and revolutionary. And I will certainly give it a try. In the meantime anyone with another suggestion for a more comfortable means of attachment please let me know.

Thank you Thunder

That link cleared it all up for me. I appreciate it.

Congratulations on the stretchers guys. Really seems to be a lot of good work going on.

Now, let me tell you something that might really help on your base. Did you know you can heat your pvc a little and mold it the way you want (within reason)?

I am not going to try this to check it out, but I think you have to preheat an oven to 200 degrees. Then, put in the pvc for five minutes. It will be hotter than you think so use pliers to get it out. Then, using a towel, bend the pvc into an oval or whatever you need to make the base more comfortable. Then, run the piece under cold water and it will stay formed.

Cool, huh?

Be careful not to heat too much. If you do, you can actually tear the pvc, or burn it up.

Also, I used a baseball catchers cup as a base on one stretcher. Just cut out the hole in the correct place for the penis. Very comfortable, but expensive.

I made several fairly good stretchers, but never used them much because for me, hanging was much easier. Plenty of privacy.

Hope this helps,

Bib's stretchers

Hi Bib,

Thanks for the feedback and encouragement!

I never thought of molding the PVC base. Someday, maybe I’ll make mine more oval in shape than it is now. That would make it thinner between the legs, and maybe more comfortable to sit back in the chair with.

Do you have any pictures of your stretchers? I’ll bet lots of guys here (including me!) would love to see them — for ideas and inspiration, and just plain for curiosity’s sake.

Any interest in selling them? I’ve gotten a couple of emails from guys that might be interested in buying them ready-made, since they didn’t think they were “handy” enough to make ones of their own.

Thanks,

Zeke.

Yes, much more comfortable.

No, I don’t even have a digital camera. I have a scanner, but they would not fit very well. I used turnbuckles for the tensioners. Attached to the base just like yours. Attached to the strap bolts of the hanger.

Any interest in selling them?

Hell no. No more making and selling any other product.

I need help I made the original pvc base stretcher, with the wooden dowels but the wooden dowels little uncomfortable. I don’t quite understand how everyone has made the more comfortable bib or contraption out of soft pipe that goes on the pecker.

Thunder posted a link in a previous message in this thread. It shows how to make the early version of the Bib Hanger. Here’s the link again:

The Original Bib Hanger]

Also, dfb70uk posted a picture of how he attached the Bib hanger to the base he made. If you are using the default number of posts per page (15, currently), then look about halfway down page 3 of this thread. There’s a post from dfb70uk titled “Stetcher”. The attachment is named “stretcher with lower bib.jpg”.

I’ll try to insert a direct link to the picture here:

/forum/attachment.php?s=&postid=2319

Someday, maybe I’ll build a version with the new “starter” Bib Hanger. I recently made a modification to the sticks on my stretcher that makes it a little more comfortable. I’ll post a description soon.

Zeke.

Added some padding to the sticks

I recently made a change to the “sticks” on my stretcher contraption. Actually, I started out by filing off more of the wood to try and make it more comfortable.

But, I ended up filing off too much, and the “hole” between the sticks got too big to hang onto my penis. What to do? Start over again and make a new set of sticks??

No — it’s too much work to make a new set of sticks, so I decided to apply some “padding” to the part I just filed off. A couple of guys had previously recommended adding some “foam” to the sticks.

Anyway, I ended up using some Crayola brand “Model Magic” modeling compound as the padding. This stuff is amazing. My wife is into arts and crafts, and she keeps some around to do projects with the kids. The stuff is like very lightweight playdough, but it dries into this durable, firm, but spongy foam.

I don’t think it holds up too well in moist places, but since it’s under the clear plastic tubing on the sticks of my stretcher, it seems to be holding up quite well (I’ve been using it for about 3 days now).

The foam makes it a little more comfortable, but not all that much. Actually, I find the sticks are fairly comfortable for a while, but after about 30 to 45 minutes, start to get uncomfortable. Of course, this depends on how tight the stretcher is adjusted.

Anyway, I’ve attached a photo of the sticks with the foam added. The foam is the blue stuff. The pics show the sticks without the clear plastic tubing, which gets slid over top of the blue stuff.

Soreness

I made my own version of this stretcher and it works great. my question is this, after using it I get more soreness behind my testicles along the shaft there. Is this good? Bad? Doesn’t hurt, just sore.


Never argue with an idiot...they drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

Re: Soreness

Hi Tooolguy,

> I made my own version of this stretcher and it works great.

Hey, that’s great! Glad you got one built.

> My question is this, after using it I get more soreness behind my testicles along the shaft there. Is this good? Bad? Doesn’t hurt, just sore.

Hmmm… How are you wearing the base? Is the base like the one I made?

I’m guessing you have a circular base like mine, and you are wearing it with your balls “inside” the base. That is, passing your balls through the base with the bottom part of the base underneath your scrotum.

Anyway, did you smooth the edges on the base? It’s possible that the base is a little too sharp where it pushes on your body.

Another possibility — assuming you have a variable-angle setup — is that you are wearing the stretcher in the “down” position (pointing down) and tightening it a lot. In the down position, all the force pushing on the base is concentrated on the bottom part of the circular base (since the base would then be pushing “up” against the bottom of your scrotum). In this position, the thickness and smoothness of the base both are factors.

My base is intentionally very thin in this section. Mostly because I was copying the base on the PeniStretcher I had read about, and their literature said this was important (and I had no experience with it at that point). If wearing it in the down position, if the base is too thick, and if you are wearing it in your pants, it could be causing pressure on the bottom of your scrotum. This could be due to the penis being “squished” down on top of your scrotum because of being stuffed in your pants. Of course, if the base is too thin on the bottom, it would tend to cut into the flesh. So, there’s a “best size” for the bottom of the base somewhere in the middle of those two extremes.

One thing you might try is to wear the base of the stretcher on “top” of your scrotum. In other words, just put your penis through the circular part of the base, and let it squish your scrotum against your body. Your balls will be pushed to the bottom of your scrotum, and the base will now be pushing directly on the bottom of your penis shaft, and not under your scrotum. You may find this more comfortable, even though it doesn’t sound like it.

Of course, I may not be interpreting your question correctly! :)

In any event, if it doesn’t really hurt, but is just sore — due to being pushed on fairly firmly for a while — that’s probably normal and nothing to worry about.

How long (how many minutes) are you stretching per session, anyway?

Zeke.

Zekeman…thank you for the reply. I am very new to the whole PE thing but here are the answers to the questions you posed.

Hmmm… How are you wearing the base? Is the base like the one I made?

*** The base is made out of a 4” plastic bushing which is both thin and smooth***

I’m guessing you have a circular base like mine, and you are wearing it with your balls “inside” the base. That is, passing your balls through the base with the bottom part of the base underneath your scrotum.

***Yes I am wearing it with the balls through the base***
Anyway, did you smooth the edges on the base? It’s possible that the base is a little too sharp where it pushes on your body.

Another possibility — assuming you have a variable-angle setup — is that you are wearing the stretcher in the “down” position (pointing down) and tightening it a lot.

***I am wearing it pulling straight out***

How long (how many minutes) are you stretching per session, anyway?

***I am combining the stretcher with hanging. I am new to both so the routine I have chosen just starting out is to hang during lunch with 6lbs for 2 sets of 20 minutes. Then later that evening after jelqing and squeezes I use the stretcher for 1 set of 20 minutes***

Hey Zeke..

I just looked at your photos in the Pics Forum. I’ve got a couple of questions/comments for you. First, consider these comments as me expressing concern, with no discouragement meant at all.

In your photos of you in the stretcher, it looks as if you are applying a great amount of pressure to the top and the bottom of your unit where the sticks make contact. Did you by any chance read the thread here about the powerjelq and the possibility of nerve damage by applying too much pressure to the top of the shaft where it meets the head? There is a large bundle of nerves in that area and some of us think too much pressure there can cause numbness or worse. Now, I’m not trying to upset you in any way here, I just wanted to bring this to your attention and let you make your decision about it.
Have you tried rotating the stretcher about 90 degrees and letting it apply more pressure on the sides of your shaft? If you do try this, let me know how it works for you.
Thanks!!!

Re: Hey Zeke..

Hi Thunder,

First — thanks for the comments. That’s one reason why I originally posted stuff here — to get feedback. You bring up some good points that I probably should have been more careful to warn people about!

> Originally posted by ThunderSS:

In your photos of you in the stretcher, it looks as if you are applying a great amount of pressure to the top and the bottom of your unit where the sticks make contact.

It probably looks worse than it is. However, the nature of using the “sticks” is such that, they always squish your “unit” to some degree. For example, I originally tried the plain “drumsticks” style sticks with no hollowed-out part, and I couldn’t and wouldn’t use them that way for a stretcher.

There’s definitely a fine balance between the tightness of the sticks and how well they hold. In Tom Hubbard’s writeups, he’s always said “only make them as tight as they need to be” so that they don’t slip. He is also careful to say to squeeze gently. And, I believe he warns about not putting it too close to the head.

With the hollowed-out part, and with the foam under the plastic tubing over the sticks, the pressure is not concentrated in a “ridge” like it is with plain sticks. But, the area is still not all that wide, and requires a lot of caution and monitoring.

> Did you by any chance read the thread here about the powerjelq and the possibility of nerve damage by applying too much pressure to the top of the shaft where it meets the head?

Yes, I did read that, and I’m careful to not let it get numb. But, if adjusted too tight, and if worn right up under the head (which I tend to like to do — even though it’s probably not the wisest thing to do), it definitely can get numb — especially if you are trying to apply a lot of stretching force.

> Now, I’m not trying to upset you in any way here, I just wanted to bring this to your attention and let you make your decision about it. Have you tried rotating the stretcher about 90 degrees and letting it apply more pressure on the sides of your shaft? If you do try this, let me know how it works for you.

Yes, I’ve tried that, and it’s a lot less comfortable for me. I actually have to adjust it so the sticks squeeze tighter in order to get the same amount of pull. Of course, mayb that’s just me.

You have made me realize (and I should have known this before!) that the pictures I had posted were a good example of how NOT to use the stretcher (at least, in the general case). I try a lot of different techniques and ways of wearing it, but I have only myself to blame if I hurt myself. I would feel really bad if somebody else copied this and hurt themselves!

So, I’m doing two things:

1) I’ve removed the pictures from the pics forum.
2) I’m going back and adding warnings earlier in this thread so that people are aware of the “dangers”.

Finally — everybody should please realize that I’m experimenting here! I’m new to this, and am trying new things. Please use common sense and please ask questions of the more experienced guys on this forum when/if in doubt about anything. It’s great to have a resource like this, and people to talk to about it.

Having said all that — I’ve experienced no ill effects so far, and have made some gains. Mostly in stretched (and non-stretched) flaccid length so far, but also (somewhat less) in erect length and girth. As I heard somebody else say — to me the risk is worth it. Also, someday, I hope to convert from using the “sticks” to using a Bib starter, which hopefully will be not only less “dangerous”, but also more comfortable for longer periods.

Thanks,

Zeke.

question to ZekeMan2000

Hello ZekeMan2000

I think your stretcher has seemed to me to be right from the start worth of trying. You seem to be a very clever guy having constructed a thing like that. Have you lately made any gains with your stretcher (you mentioned already some gains but I mean after that)….?

I have constructed by following your pictures freely, a stretcher of my own, and I have now after a week made visible flaccid gains, which I have not yet measured. If you want, I can send a picture of my stretcher.
