Addressing Hanging Limitations
Several issues arise when one undertakes hanging as a form of PE. The first is a very simple matter of physics: You are not stretching any of the penis forward of the hanger’s placement. In other words, the only tissues being stretched are those between the hanger & your body.
Second, several important considerations have to be kept in mind when determining where you will affix the hanger: (1) You do NOT want the hanger being attached too close to your glans – that’s dangerous, (2) If you don’t have much flaccid shaft length – a problem I currently face – then you end up attaching the hanger low on your shaft, even at the base. This latter placement leads to a situation where all you’re stretching is the ligs at the base or, worse yet, only those below the pubis. This would limit the gains such an individual could get from hanging.
Even if you alter the angle you hang from BTC to SO or even OTS, you’re still left with the above dilemmas to face – too high up the shaft and you’ll risk injury, too low and you won’t be hitting any tunica at all.
This might explain why some guys have gotten disappointment from hanging. If a guy has a very low LOT and a very small flaccid hang, he might get nothing from hanging with the hanger attached at the base.
I purchased a Bib Starter – as opposed to the standard Bib – with those considerations in mind. My Bib Starter is about 55 mm at its widest point (2.17”). And the Captn’s hanger is, standard, about 51 mm uniformly (2.00”). So, I put together a “mini-Captn’s hanger” which is only 30.5 mm, uniform (only 1.2”). It looks just like the regular version, only thinner. I plan to use my “MCH” to target the tunica – especially with SO & OTS hanging. I assume that I’ll probably have to use slightly lighter weights with the “mini” but it will give me a different effect, no doubt.
Often, the best tunica work is done with your bare hands, logging the necessary hours of upward fulcrum stretching, gripping up near the glans and giving the whole shaft a strong stretch. I believe this should be done in conjunction with a hanging program.
After my recent “trial run” of the Captn’s hanger, I grinded out 100 slow, strong rotary cranks – in each direction. Damn did that put the finishing touches on that session! Then I jelqed & kegeled my way to about 90% erect & wrapped the willie with a sock and snapped a very tight cable clamp at the base – for 50 minutes.
I’m also going to concentrate more on fowfers, trying to increase my flaccid length, therefore opening up more hanging options for me.
So, if any of these issues apply to you, try to increase your flaccid with a lot of fowfers and, in the meantime, make a “mini-hanger” which is no more than 1¼” wide. Just wrap thickly at that spot and scale back the weight a little & try logging more hours under load. And, of course, experiment with BTC, SO, & OTS.
Also, don’t neglect your Blasters or Rotary Cranks, or Bundled Stretching, etc. Use hanging to put the finishing touches on your weasel.
