Am I missing something
I started “hanging” with my wench a few months ago with a technique that just felt right without really doing my homework. I noticed about 1/2” of gain before I discovered that I was doing things incorrectly. Immediately after I switched to the more accepted technique, I -very- suddenly found myself with a whole hell of a lot of extra skin on my unit. I must be missing something, since the ‘proper’ technique isn’t working for me as well as my own homebrew technique.
I’ve been hanging with my wench by pulling on it with an extra long strap that goes down to my foot. This means somewhere between SD and SO, especially if I sit straight up with my leg at a good 90 degree angle. My wrap is 2 different thickness of self adherent tape, first the thin goes on just below my glans, I go around once, then make a singe wrap angled up to cover the last little bit of shaft under the glans then wrap down. Then I put on the thicker wrap, about 1/4” below the glans, and wrap around until it’s of a good thickness (it’s 2” wide wrap), and then give it one around the bottom of the wrap. I then attach my wench there and then tighten it with a hose clamp. I go my 20 minute set, and when I detach and unwrap, there is a slight rollover of the wrap onto the glans which can be a bit uncomfortable to remove but it’s no big deal.
From what I understand, what I’m supposed to be doing is wrapping about a good inch below the glans, leaving the skin above the wrap and below the glans to gather and protect the glans during the hang. I tried that for about a week, and even occasionally tried Saiyan’s base hang technique. The first, and most noticeable effect of wrapping and attaching much further down the shaft was that I got big fluid buildup bubbles that would sometimes take a good half hour to 45 minutes to subside and then they were still a bit loose after that. Later, I noticed a ridiculous amount of loose skin on my shaft, I mean a lot of skin, very quickly. I know that this should mean that I was getting a skin stretch and not a tunica stretch which would normally be considered to be a problem of not enough tightness in my attachment but damn, I screwed that sucker in and it almost hurt how tight it was attached. I found that the only real way to address the fluid buildup properly was to cover all of the skin on the shaft up to the glans, which produces even worse discomfort when all that wrapped skin rolls over the glans.
So do I say, “fuck it. It works for me,” or should I work harder to find my problem with the wrap technique shown in all of the drawings and videos? I haven’t had any problems with the way I’ve been doing it, but when I read people warning against doing it that way, I get a little nervous.
