Question for Bib on Hanging Technique
I have been trying to find a solution for a delima I am facing in hanging. I am new at this but have been researching on this site now, including the FAQs, for about 4 or 5 months and am very dedicated to achieving long term results. I started hanging after jelqing for about 3 weeks and then decided to start hanging after reading the post on your history as well as other similar posts. I have been hanging now for about 6 weeks and started at 5 pounds, and worked my way up to six 20 minute sessions but since I always seemed to have more numbness than I was comfortable with, I switched to eight 15 minute sessions two weeks ago, and at the same time moved up to 7.5 pounds.
I always seemed to build up too much pressure in the glans area and thought I might not be tightening the Captain’s Wench enough. So, I decided to tighten it down even more, progressively after I had started each session to accommodate for the thinning of the shaft while progressing through the 15 minute set. Then, I could really feel that I was gripping the tunica very, very well. It was almost as though my Wench was clamped on to a rope. The skin did not move at all when I checked it by trying to move my hanger manually, just as a check. I was very pleased with the pull I was getting on the tunica without any apparent impact to the circulation in the glans area. I was really feeling the pull all the way down to where the tunica connects in the pelvis area. I felt as though I as finally rocking towards gains!
However, while I have been feeling very good about the amount of pressure being applied to the tunica, I am still getting a little sense of numbness right after the set and then as it goes away (within about 20 seconds or so), there is a slight loss of sensitivity that remains at the point where I am tightening the pipe clamp around the Wench, forward through the bottom of the penis across the bottom of the glans. This feeling usually is gone after a night of sleep but it still has me concerned in regards to the long term effects. I am wondering if maybe now I m clamping the device Too hard? I have been very careful to read and research as carefully and as thoroughly as possible but I feel that I am missing something important. I am in this for the duration of the journey to achieve my goal, and want to make sure that I am proceeding correctly. I have been hesitant to just stop hanging and take a break since I am very dedicated to progress in this and also that I may start back and have the very same issue all over again immediately anyway due to a technical flaw. Also, this sensation or lack there of has not been anything that has not gone away after a weekend of lesser hanging volume and the full nights of sleep on Saturday and Sunday. I am perplexed and want to figure out what is flawed in my technique.
