The Loverband for venous leakage
A cockring functions by restricting the outflow of blood from the penis. But it also can clamp down on other structures, such as the urethra. A device called The Loverband addresses this issue by restricting only the blood outflow, and nothing else. It does that by pressing down only on the top of the base of the penis. The device can be found here:
I decided to spring for one of these things despite the price ($37 with shipping) just to see if it worked. It turns out to be a giant O-ring. It’s 1/4 inch material, and the O-ring has an inside diameter of 11.875 inches, so the circumference of the loop is about 39 inches. To put it on, you step into the ring, pulling the front up to your belly. Then you pull the part that’s across your back down between your legs, and up over your package so that it rests on the base of the penis. This is shown in detailed drawings on the site. One size fits all, supposedly.
The material is some kind of black rubber that’s very stretchy, up to a point. I can’t really tell for sure, but I don’t think it’s hollow tubing. Anyway, if you grab it at points 4 inches apart, you can stretch that segment fairly easily to 8 inches, but not a lot beyond that.
I’ve tried it out, and it actually works pretty well. You get an erection, and then the band helps keep the penis pumped up, particularly the head. It’s comfortable, and doesn’t interfere with ejaculation or anything. They say to use it for 20 minutes, but I went a good bit beyond that with no problem. You may have to adjust the tension, basically by putting more or less stretch into the part that’s across your belly. You need to use the least pressure on the penis that still gives results, which requires a bit of experimenting.
I’ll try to attach a picture showing the Loverband itself. But the picture also shows a much lower cost alternative, which is some elastic material I picked up long ago from WalMart. It’s flat, not round, and this particular material is 5/8 inch instead of 1/4 inch. But the elastic stretches in a way that’s very similar to the round band, and, based on a quick test, seems to work the same way. You would just have to cut a length of elastic and sew the ends together to form a loop. When my Loverband wears out, I’ll use the elastic.
So this thing looks a little goofy when you’re wearing it, but if you just wear a t-shirt, that would hide the belly strip, and then the part on your dick just looks like a cockring. I don’t know whether this device could be useful for PE, but it might be a good alternative to something like clamping. It does keep your dick pretty pumped up. However, I don’t think it will maintain an erection on its own.
I’ve always had a moderate problem with venous leakage, and that’s what this device is really meant for. So if you have more trouble staying erect when standing than when lying down, and your head doesn’t really get big and firm, you might want to give something like this a try. But at least try the elastic alternative first.
