Vacuum Hanging, blisters, newbie gains

Vacuum Hanging, blisters, newbie gains

I’ve been lurking for awhile. This is my first post.

I’ve been vacuum hanging for about 1.5 months with the vacuum hanger from autoextender. I slowly built up to about 17 lbs. That’s when the blisters started.

My routine was hang “heavy” (as much weight as possible until painful) for 20 -30 minutes. Then I’d use the vacuum cup with a bungie cord around my waste to do ADS for 6-14 hrs depending on if my GF came over, etc.

I gained ~ 5/8 ” in BPEL and 1/4 in EG in 1.5 months.

I recently made an AFB hanger, but I can only hang ~10lbs before the device feels painful. My glans also turn dark red/purple. I think it’s okay, but it does worry me. I will play with the AFB hanger more (I haven’t tried wrapping before using it yet).

I just put in an order for the Bib hanger.I’ll give that a try as well.

Is anyone doing heavy (>20 lbs) with a vacuum hanger? If so, what hanger do you use and how do you prevent blisters?


Don’t regurgitate newbie advice. I’ve read all of it.

The only thing I do is wrap with breathable tape and put a little Vaseline on my penis hole.


Do you vaccum hang?
What hanger do you use?
How much weight do you use?


When I first got my vacuum hanger I used the same amount of weight that I had been using on my Bib, which was about 12-15 pounds. I quickly developed blisters on my glans with the vacuum hanger. After four weeks, I resumed hanging with the same weight as before, and got a blister within three days.

After a year, I have resumed hanging with the vacuum hanger, but am only using 5 pounds. No blisters after three weeks, but I’m not really sure that 5 pounds is going to accomplish much. I love the ease of application and the comfort is pretty remarkable. I intend to try increasing the weight gradually, but the blister probability really gives me pause.

I find the Bib to be clumsy to use, with a lot of slippage and varying amounts of pain when I try to tighten the clamp to compensate for the slippage. Pretty frustrating. Because of foreskin restoration, I have gained quite a bit of shaft skin, and I believe that excess/loose skin contributes to the slippage (probably similar to what an uncut guy would experience).


I was under the impression that Monkeybar stopped making hangers last year. How did you score a vacuum hanger less than 2 months ago? Not criticizing, I want one, too.

start 1/20/08: 6.0 nbpel, 5.5 eg, 4 fl, 5 fg

now 6/30/12: 6.75 nbpel, 5.875 eg, 5.0 fl, 5.125 fg

Thank you Marinera. Guys, with the vac hanger, IT’S SIMPLE.

TAPE-YOUR-GLANS! It literally makes blisters impossible. I have done 3 hours before. It hurt from the pressure that long total but no blisters!

Exactly, if I didn’t tape I think id have given up now. Monkeybars selling it on the site now.

I don’t know why he wasn’t recommending it earlier. It was his only real downfall with that hanger, WEIGHT!

Randomgiant suggested it to me a hell of a long time ago, Shunga has also been doing it for a while. I don’t know who came up with the idea or if someone recommended it to them.

It’s funny because it’s so simple but so effective, you wouldn’t think a wee bit of tape would change how much weight and how long you can hang but it does.

Yeah I was doing a search and I think it was a old thread I first seen tape mentioned and then posts seemed to be popping up here and there about it. Tape is defiantly a must have for vacuum hanging like a wrap is for bib and clamp based hangers.

Oh sorry for the late reply, but yes I use the heavy duty static stretcher head and attach it to 10 lbs of weights.

Ironaddict, kimc, do you use monkeybars VacADS? I actually want mynewsize’s vac hanger but I dont know if they can be trusted.

I use monkybars vac hanger and autoxsleeves mainly but I have the extender too but don’t have enough time for it.

Hello All,

Yes, I bought the VACads from Monkeybar doesn’t answer emails, but he does ship the orders quickly.

- I started wrapping the glans with 3M breathable tape. I think it helps, but I’m still aggravating the old blisters because I’m not waiting long enough for them to heal. Even then, you cannot get around the fact that the penis is retained by the vacuum. The vacuum will thus be sucking on the head of the penis. The tape will reinforce the head tissue, but I suspect it will blister with enough weight.

Right now, I’ve decided to use the vacuum hanger as an ADS system with my own harness. I stretch the penis around my waste similar to the phallosan system. I will use Bib’s hanger for heavy hanging.

I just got the Bib today, and I will report back on my experience with using it.

Initial impressions:
- It’s an incredible value for $95 (I got the starter). You would easily spend ~$30 trying to make something of this quality plus at least 10hrs of your time. It’s a tank. I expect it will easily last forever. Nobody knows more about wrench hanging than Bib, and the Bib hanger is the result of all his experience. I think it’s a no brainer to by the Bib if you are going to “wrench” hang.

What I don’t know: Which is better?
- Wrench hanging with heavier weights for short duration?
- Vacuum hanging with light weights for long duration?
