Best way of hanging, some ideas

High weights according to that thread were in the above 60 (yes - sixty) pound range. However, I can’t see how we can reach there - in vacuum hanging I suppose that the upper limit could be at best 20 pounds (I tried once but my wrap caused too much pain - maybe now, with more practice - it could work, - but 60? May be with a bib hanger but again - a large proportion of the weight would pull external (skin) structures and it would hurt like hell.

What do you think / know about max weight in vac hanging?

I haven’t seen that thread by Penismith, but I doubt he was recommending that anybody hang with 60#. As far as I know, no one ever has hanged with that much weight. 45# is the highest I have ever seen anyone reporting hanging, and that was for a very seasoned PE’er (Bib) how has already reported gaining multiple inches.

I think most guys would agree that very heavy weights (above 25#) are usually not necessary for gains, and often are counterproductive. The goal is to provide firm traction, so that you can feel the tissues stretching. I relate the feeling to how my hamstrings feel when I’m stretching them.

THe exact mechanisms of penile growth are not known, but many people think that moderate forces applied for long periods of time stimulate cell growth and/or division in the penis’ softer tissues, and help to elongate (by proliferation and remodeling) the penis’ stronger tissues (like the ligs and tunica).

Regarding the limits of vacuum hangers, I haven’t yet tried anything above 15#. I can say, however, that 15# is no problem at all with my wrapping technique. I think I could easily get to 20, and perhaps to 25#. I really don’t feel that I need to, however, since I feel very good fatigue in my ligs and shaft at the current weight.

Regarding the Bib Hanger, I found that 15# presented an obstacle. Beyond that, hanging become very uncomfortable for me. Same with the Wench. 15# is also the threshold beyond which discoloration set in, for either hanger.

The key to hanging moderate to heavy weights is wrapping. I think the vacuum hanger is very promising in this regard. Finding the right wrapping technique can really extend its usable range.

But, heed the above warnings. Hanging 15# with a vacuum hanger is like hanging 18 or 20# with a Bib. Don’t be too quick to increase the weight. Milk all the gains you can from the lightest weights you can use.

Thanks for that long reply, modesto. I absolutely agree with you that 60 pounds is way too much and the penismith thread’s numbers came from non PE related medical traction used to elongate collagenous tissues. I also agree with you that 15 pounds with the vacuum hanger is a perfect weight and I do feel fatigue both in my tunica and my ligs, more than at 25 pounds in the bib hanger (which I personally found very uncomfortable - may be because I’m cut. Thanks again, in particular for this comment: ‘Milk all the gains you can from the lightest weights you can use’ is quintessential since it gives gains at the lowest risk of injury.

60# might be right if you’re talking about the achilles tendon, but not the penis. The force you need depends on how much collagen is in the tissue you’re pulling. Different forces will be required for different structures.

I have now tried this tape idea. I am still getting the hang of it but so far I love it. I am not getting zero or inconsequential fluid build up. This is so awesome! I first wrap tightly with a short piece of Ace type bandage then further compress with the tape. I first tried tape only and it killed my glans. Thank you so much ticktickticker.

Cool that it’s working for you too, joe

Ya you really have no idea. This is amazing to me. If you do a search on the forum you will see I constantly have problems with water blisters. It got to the point where I had the just pop in a move on mentality. Now I can hang for much longer periods of time at 12 or 15 pounds with ease. I have been doing a 6 month study on clamping for length gains that I will post on Thunders around February. It involves hanging as well and I was getting to the point that I was scared I wasn’t going to be able to complete it and that will disappoint some people on the forum who have shown interest in it. Now I know I can complete it and then some.

Hey joe - I’m very curious to here your report. Only one question: if you do both hanging and clamping - how can you tell which did the job? Just wondering .

Modesto - you are certainly right, if the structure is thin and the weight would be too high like 200 pounds on a penis the tunica and ligs and probably all the rest would just tear apart. Thank you for your input.

As a control I hung with the same weights and routine minus the clamping for 3 months with no measurable gains. Then this idea of using clamping to compliment hanging came to me. Hopefully it will al make sense when I post it. I just don’t want to give out too much information before I complete it and crunch the numbers because as to not misinform anyone.

New idea for a protocol:

As you now I believe that three sessions of 20-(better) thirty minutes at 15-(better) 20 pounds would be ideal. I think the three sessions should be spread over the day 1 in the morning 1 around noon and 1 in the evening. Wear an ads (I prefer lead weights) at least one or two hours after hanging, then, til the next session a homemedics wrist band which you should always wear at night (never let it turtle!). I wonder whether additional clamping could be of benefit and am eagerly awaiting joe’s report.

I read a very interesting thread regarding hanging in a v-stretch manner. (Sorry I forgot the author - but I guess we have no copyright agreement here *s*)#

The idea is to hang straight out and attach an additional weight for example in the middle of your dick which will hang straight down. The degree of the v-stretch can be varied by the relation between the weights. The position of the straight down hanger can be varied along the long axis of your dick.

A word of caution though: the attachment point of the straight down hanger is on the side of your dick where the artery and the nerve are running. So I constructed a 5 inch thick round cushion to attach the weight.

I haven’t started yet (cause of that dam blister) but I think this is extremely promising.

for the people in the US who use the tape, what kind of tape have you bought and where??

Well - as I said I live in Munich Germany. I think it should be something between absorbent gauze and elastic tape. Check in the pharmacy

ADS - major improvement:

While reading old threads I came up with the following idea:

I usually wear three lead PE weights. There is still some space between my pubic bone and the first ring, but not enough for a wrist band. But while pulling my dick a little I am able to wrap the wrist band around the base of my dick pushing the weights farther away. The effect (zucchini look) is incredible, also my dick feels constantly slightly engorged. Btw, I use a hair tie (two layers) below the weights which is very comfortable and helps holding the weights in place.

Give it a try - you will like it. Both the look and the feeling are just great.

I tried a variant of this wrapping procedure today. I got some “Hurt-Free” first aid tape that “sticks to itself, not to skin.” I used it to wrap my glans and the area slightly below my glans. I squeezed all the air out so that tape was snug, but I did not wrap tightly. Then, I applied some standard, sticky medical tape over the glans and “neck” of my penis. The sticky tape extended further down my shaft, to form a region where the tape was firmly stuck to the skin. The wrap was loose. I made no attempt to make it tight. I just wanted it to fit.

When I was finished, it looked as if I had wrapped an amputated stump. It was a weird visual, but the wrap worked very well. I hanged 2 hours straight at 15#.

I think that wrapping like this changes the physics of vacuum hanging, because some of the force from the vacuum ends up stretching the tape and pulling on the parts that are adhered to the skin. Although there is no direct compression of the penis, I think that the effect of the vacuum on the tape causes the wrap to “pucker in” just outside the glans cap of the hanger. This area corresponds to the neck of the penis, just below the glans. The “puckering” has some force behind it, and I think it may be equivalent to compression.

I’m saying all this to make the point that vacuum hanging with a wrap deserves some special attention. In particular, I think you need to monitor your glans for circulation. It’s a good idea to pull back on the weight every now and then, or to remove the hanger and message the “stump” after a while.

Also, since wrapping and unwrapping take about 5 mins a piece, it’s a good idea to limit one’s coffee or tea consumption. You really don’t want to have to wrap and unwrap twice.
