Vacuum Hanger Wrapping Technique
For those of us who have tried Monkebar’s new hanger, we know that wrapping is really a thing of the past. Just pop on the hanger and away you go.
Or maybe not …
Since Monkeybar has replaced the silicone sleeves for the Vacu-Hanger with thicker ones, I’m now having a problem “popping” the hanger on. For some reason, the skin on my shaft seems more likely to get caught between the glans cap and the sleeve now than it was before.
I’m now trying out a simple solution, which I hope will work well for long periods of time. The solution involves applying a short length of silicone sleeve (a “wrap”) directly to the penis, directly under the spot where the main silicone sleeve turns over the edge of the glans cap and “pops” down onto the shaft. The purpose of this wrap is to gather the skin in this area to prevent little folds from getting pinched in the space between the glans cap and sleeve.
I’m using one of MB’s old sleeves as a wrap—a thin one—since no particular thickness or strength is needed. I think that the ideal wrap is very thin and just firm/tight enough to prevent skin folds. Too tight can obviously be a problem, especially for long duration hanging. Perhaps a short length of a condom would work even better.
I’ve now had the hanger on in this arrangement for about an hour, and it’s working fine. I may feel a wee bit of extra pressure in my glans, but it’s hard to say. The sleeve I’m using runs from the pocket formed between my corona and shaft to the point just beyond the end of the glans cap. Using the “wrap” this way also helps to prevent donut. My glans is totally exposed, however, as usual (I’m not averse to having a swollen head :) ).
The danger of this method is that the extra compression from the sleeve will cause the glans to swell (Uli Effect). I’m afraid I may be experiencing this. We’ll see after a couple of hours.
Aside from that small (and I think easily solvable) problem, this arrangement seems even more comfortable than the standard hanging arrangement.
