I`m new to hanging: Is there an "ideal" weight? (Bib and other experts, please read)
I`m 22 and new to this great site. My penis is normal 3,15 inch (8 cm) and erect just 5,5 inch (14 cm) maximum.
When I was 19 I have tried out some commercional PE instruments, such as Penistretcher (exact same modell like JES Extender, but for $140 and not > $600), Penis Plus and PeniStretcher. All those torture instruments had the same mechanism: A loop around your glans, in other words, torture pain after a few minutes of use. Fortheremore, the stretch force is not that big, and the direction is not ideal. So I have thrown those instruments away.
Pumping (not regular) had also no effects. And if you don`t use warm water (instead of room air) inside of the plastic condom of the pump, your penis will swell very big (due water movements inside of your penis) and look funny crazy deformed for 3-4 days.
During the last couple of weeks I thought about having surgery, but I have fear about possible complications. I found this great website and spent at least 20 hours in reading many posts. I came to the opinion that hanging will be the best option for me. I will give it a try for 1 year, and if I don`t see any gains, I can at least say “OK, I have tried everything” before having surgery.
I have just build the hanger you can see on Tom Hubbard`s site. Yesterday evening I have started to build the CCH3 hanger of Chickenchocker. I will also build a Bib hanger. I will try out which hanger is the most confortable for me, which position at my penis is the best, which wrap material is the best aso.
I will hang at least 2 hours/day (plus approx. 2 hours breaks). The hanging position will be 6 o`clock down. Will start with 2 pounds (1 kg) and slowly increase the weights.
Now my problem: I often read postings of profi hangers, who write they are hanging 11-22 (even 45) lbs. I am real shocked and get sick when I read those numbers. Hey, this are 5,5-11 kg (even 22,5 kg), my penis would break away!
I think that I will never be able to hang such high weights, so far I have no problem with 1,5 kg, but I think the maximum I will ever be able to hang will be approx. 8 lbs (4 kg).
Now to my question: I have an important question (theory), please read and write what you think about it:
1.) Is there a minimum weight you have to use to get any gains in length? That means: You have to hang at least X kg to be able to stretch your ligaments and erectile tissue. In other words: If you hang (X minus 0.5 kg), you won`t get any gains, NO MATTER how long training time you invest, simple reason: the stretching force would be not enough to achieve permanent gains.
2.) Is there a maximum weight Y kg, which is enough? In other words: If you hang (Y plus 0,5 kg) you won`t get better/faster results than if you would just use Y kg. That means, i.e. 4 kg could be enough, and hanging 20 kg won`t give you better results - they just would make you more pain and raise the risk of injuries.
=> Resumee of 1.) and 2.): There`s an minimum weight X which you have to take because lower weights will give you no results. And there`s a maximum weight Y, there`s no reason to user higher weights than Y because they wil give you no better results. Both weights, X as well as Y, are different for each individuial, of course.
What do you think about this theory? Especially to the profi hangers. What do you think could be the optimal weight for average people to get permanent gains in length?
This issue could be interesting for all hangers.
Thanks, and happy hanging ;-).
