5 weeks in and Twisting a problem now
The 2 ultimate questions I have are: (a) does twisting of the BIB indicate that skin stretching is needed? (b) as length gains come, should I be starting the wrap further down my shaft from my glans to compensate? Wanted to get that out up front.
I’ve been hanging BTC consistently for 5 weeks now and have gained about 0.5 inch in length and some base girth (which I’m thrilled about). The first two weeks were tough skin stretch but after that the skin soreness dissipated (and I assume I was really just hitting ligs at that point).
2 days ago I noticed rather severe twisting of the BIB when I hung. After reattaching a few times and not fixing the problem it occurred to me that I should try attaching the hanger closer to the pubic bone, and that seemed to solve the twisting problem, and I did get the skin burning sensation again (just not as severe as when I first started)
Today I noticed the same issue. I wonder if I started out hanging a little too far up my shaft (toward the glans). I had wrapped as I always have, and noticed that the end of the wrap (near the base) was a little too thin. My last layer is theraband which I spiral past the underlying two layers (which are What-a-grip under a piece of SS)
As a side note, I’ve been using a regular size BIB. I ordered a starter BIB (just to try it out) and got it 3 days ago and started to try it out 2 days ago. The twisting started with the starter bib (but today’s first set, which was a good one, was using the starter). Is it a bad idea to try and switch back and forth between the regular and the starter? I do not use the piece of SS as part of my wrap when using the starter
