Hello again! Thanks for taking the time to read another of my blog posts.
In this post, I'm going to explain with my personal opinions based on around 20 years of experience and helping others like yourself learn about penis weight hanging, why you should not use a vacuum penis weight hanger.
Let's start with some basic information first. The picture above is an example of what a vacuum penis weight hanger is typically made from. These are known in (usually) Asian countries and in acupuncture related therapies as vacuum cupping therapy devices. Some opportunistic individuals started altering these devices and reselling them as penis stretching devices.
That concept alone should be your first RED FLAG. Typically, when an existing product is modified to be used "off label", it is not being used as originally designed and could therefor be dangerous.
Another type of vacuum penis enlargement device that is typically more familiar for most people, even if only due to a "pop culture", or Hollywood/movie reference, is a penis pump. A penis pump is something typically used for a quick "fluff" in size before sex, or as an erection therapy device given to a patient of a Urologist. A penis pump for safety reasons usually has a pressure gauge on it so you know how much vacuum pressure you are exposing your penis to and you can avoid injury from too much vacuum. This vacuum is often referred to as "HG" on a gauge.
How are these vacuum penis weight hangers applied to the penis?
You start with a non erect penis. Place your penis glans, or "head" into the cup area. Typically, you then roll a silicone sleeve over the lower area of the cup of the device and onto your penis skin to form a seal between the two. You then turn a knob on the top of the cup which pulls a plunger forward causing a suction inside. On other examples of these vacuum penis weight hanger devices, there is an attachment for a short hose which allows the user to via their own mouth (YUCK!) suck air from the cup of the device to create suction inside.
You then attach your hanging weight to a hook that is usually retro-fitted to the outside of the cup of the vacuum penis weight hanger.
This is where the danger begins....
These vacuum penis weight hanger devices do NOT usually come with a pressure gauge. This is a BIG no no if you want to avoid injuries like blisters on your penis. These blisters occur when you exceed a safe level of vacuum inside the cup area of these devices. Once you apply your weight to your vacuum penis weight hanger, you begin to pull against the vacuum inside of the cup, further increasing the vacuum exponentially based on how much weight you are applying. Every increase in weight increases the internal vacuum and likelihood of blisters. Blisters occur when the vacuum inside the cup of a vacuum penis weight hanger causes lymph fluid to be pulled into the thin skin of the glans of the penis. You suddenly feel a sensation similar to being stuck with a needle on your penis glans and there's your beautiful, Sexually Transmitted Disease resembling blister that your partner or spouse will think is SO sexy!
I say, why not just avoid all that in the first place? Thankfully, there are better alternatives like Malehanger.
