chafing at the base...

chafing at the base...

I’m having a little discomfort at the base of my tube. I’m currently packing about 3/4 of the length of my dick and at the base kinda hurts; where the flange meets my skin its pressed hard against it even though I’m using the same pressure. My base girth is almost a half inch larger than the midshaft. is it time for a new tube? :/

machtenx,

Are you using a straight sided cylinder or does it have a flange/lip at the base? If you’re packing 3/4 of the tube from the base of the shaft, I’d say it’s time to move a 1/4” inch up in diameter size. What size are you presently using, how long are you pumping and what kind of pressure are you working with? All of these could be factors in the discomfort that you’re feeling. Personally, I never have any kind of discomfort at the base no matter what kind of pumping routine I’ve done.

I’m using a tube with a flange at the base, and this is where it feels tight. My base is expanding against it and I can see a ring where it presses around the base of my dick when I’m done, kinda sore.

I think you got it but I wanted to make clear that I am not packing 3/4 of the tube but 3/4 of the length of my dick is pressed against the tube.

I’m presently using a 2 inch diameter tube

I pump for 20 minute sessions twice daily at about 5-7 hg.

Another thing I should mention is that my main goals in PE are for length, I don’t really that much about girth. This is why I purchase a tube that I knew would be a bit tight. I figured that a thicker tube would cause me to gain less in length than a tube that I packed. Was this a wrong assumption?

Thanks,
I still have plenty of length left in the tube and this is what I want to increase….but if I can’t continue to pump without discomfort then I guess I’ll have to move up

machtenx,

It seems like you’re using the right 2” diameter cylinder in order to encourage more length gains. Unless you’re substantially wider around in girth than 6.25”-7” , this is a good size tube to work with for length. Are you using enough lube to prevent chafing of your skin? Have you shaved your pubic hair where the base of the cylinder grabs on to your dick? Maybe your soreness is coming from the effects of pubic hair/skin being stretched while under the pump. Maybe you just need some days off from pumping to let the area heal and then start again. Just some thoughts.

I think you’re right about the shaving contributing to the uncomfortableness. I’ve had some trouble with it. I use an electric razor for all my shaving (never had a dad teach me how to shave with a razor) so sometimes it nicks me and pumping + nicks = painful as you know. So I shave infrequently mostly on my days off.

Has anyone tried nair on the base of their dicks? they say not to use it but I don’t see any reason why not.

So that should explain the majority of the discomfort….any ideas about the ring it’s leaving on the base?

Also, when you said wider in girth than 6.25-7” were you referring to non-pumped girth?

Thanks again!

machtenx,

I suggest using a good blade razor, like the mach3 or any three or four-blade razor. They’re very comfortable, quick and reliable without cutting you. You can just use regular lotion as a lube first.

I would not use Nair, unless you want to take a chance on experiencing severe burning sensations if you have skin sensitivity.

The ring is probably just from the fact that while under the vacuum pressure, the cylinder is tightly pressing against your skin. Once you exit the tube, it should go away. This is normal.

Yes, I was referring to having a 6.25-7.00” PUMPED girth in my previous comment.

Good luck to you,
Peforeal

Large swollen bump appeared last night :/

Earlier I had hung for an hour fine, no abnormalities. 8 lbs with the bib in 3 20 minute sessions. I had gone on and just finished a “normal” pumping session (20 minutes at 5 hg) when I went to jelq a little as I usually do at the end of a pumping session.

I’m not quite sure if it was a rough jelq that caused it or if it had been there from pumping, but I noticed a large swelling on the right underside of my dick. It was pretty scary, didn’t hurt but it felt very weird.

It was swelled up right on top of a vein, a little discoloration, but not major bruising. It went down some immediately as I massaged it but it is still a little swollen now. There’s hardly any discolorations, just looks like a little iritated skin. Very weird. Today it’s hardly swollen at all, if I touch it the bump feels like a pimple.

A few questions:
1. Any idea how I might have done this to my poor dick?
2. What the hell did I do to it?
3. How long should I wait until I pump again? how long til I hang again? sex this weekend or no?
4. Do you feel that two sessions of 20 minute pumping and 2 one hour hang sessions (3x20 minutes) is too much training?

I really don’t want to destroy my veins as erection strength is one of my constant battles so the main thing is how I did this to my dick and how to prevent it from happening again.

That bump could be an ingrown hair. You don’t say exactly where it is. Is it in a shaved area?

Get rid of that electric razor, that is probably most of your chafing and bump problem.

Get that Mach 3 razor and just press lightly. It is very safe and gives a close result. I don’t even use shave cream. Just soap up the area in the shower, about 8-10 strokes and I’m done.

Most discomfort usually begins the longer you stay in the tube. So if changing your shaving system doesn’t help, go down to 15 minute sets and instead of two sets, try for 3.

I don’t think a larger tube will help you at this stage and will probably just frustrate you, because you will be fighting trying to keep your balls from being sucked in. Wait until you fully pack the tube before moving up in size.

Thanks Gprent,

I don’t think It’s an ingrown hair because of the way it swelled up real fast and deflated real fast. Also because it’s on top of the vein it makes me think it’s related to something rupturing maybe.

I’ll have to get the mach 3…too bad they dont have mach 10 =P

_______________________

The Mach3 is a good choice. It may seem expensive, but one blade cartridge lasts forever, I mean like 3 or 4 months. If you just use it for your cock, it may go 6 months.

You know, sometimes I get a lump on the underside off to the right a little, about 2.5 inches down from the tip. I don’t know what it is, but it does come with the longer pump sessions. Since I jelq and do girth blasters after each pump session, the lump pretty much immediately goes down and I don’t worry about it. For me, I am sure nothing has ruptured, as there is no discoloration or pain involved.

machtenx,

A picture would be worth a thousand words, but based on your description of a “large swelling” , it sounds like you could be experiencing fluid buildup (donut effect) from either your pumping or jelqing or combination of activities. Since you could reduce it as you massaged the area, the donut effect seems a likely possibility. Just a thought.

The next time you PE, be less aggressive and more aware of how your dick feels and is reacting. If indeed you are experiencing fluid buildup, then you can wrap that area first before you pump to minimize or prevent the donut effect.

Also, as gprent101 says, you can’t go wrong with the Mach 3 razor. It’s worth every penny.

Peforeal ,
I know, I should have taken a picture. Did not think of it. Right now it’s down to less than a pimple so a picture wouldn’t do any good. Could a donut effect as you’ve described be on the underside midshaft of the penis? I thougth for some reason it was near the head all the way around.

Gprent,
Sounds a little like what I’ve got. Maybe I was just freaking out because I’ve never seen it before. I’ll go easier next time and see what happens.

Thanks Guys!

As it stands I don’t think I really need to take a break, just go easier on it. Does this make sense?
