The Bib Hanger is approximately 2¾ inches in length.You MUST BE OVER six inches in length, and MUST BE OVER five inches in girth, in order to use the original Bib Hanger effectively. The Bib Hanger can accommodate a maximum erect girth* of approximately 8inches. There are no limits on erect length.
The Bib Starter is about one inch shorter than the original Bib Hanger and
is recommended for men who have at least 3.5 inches erect length* and
3.5 inches erect girth*. The Starter can accommodate a maximum erect
girth* of approximately 6.5 inches. There are no limits on erect length.
*NOTE: Erect girth measurements are
used to give you some approximate guidelines. NEVER HANG WHILE YOUR
PENIS IS ERECT!
Your goal is to get larger penis. To accomplish this you must stretch several decidedly unwilling ligaments that run along the top and sides of your penis just beneath the skin. You must also stretch other more willing but nevertheless resistant tissues and structures that make up the penis: the tunica, the corpora cavernosa, and the corpus spongiosum, among others.
Starting a Program
You should allow at least two weeks of experimentation to find the best, most comfortable hanger configuration. During this period, hanging sessions ("sets") should last no more than five to ten minutes. After each set, make one
and only one adjustment in wrapping, padding, tightness, or toe. Slight adjustments have the potential to produce dramatic differences in comfort and safety. At the end of this experimentation period, you should have a much better understanding of hanging and how your body responds to it.
The hanger functions by exerting pressure. Depending upon what adjustments you make, that pressure may focus on a larger or smaller portion of the hanger's contact area:
toward the front of the hanger, toward the rear of the hanger, or evenly distributed along its length.
Depending upon how you position the hanger and how much weight you are hanging, pressure may focus immediately behind the head, in a small area farther down the shaft, or more evenly distributed along a longer portion of the shaft.
In all cases, pressure will be exerted on the sides of the shaft, not on the top or bottom of the shaft or on the head. Under no circumstances should the hanger contact
the top of the shaft directly behind the head.
After hanging for a few minutes, the head may become discolored. Prolonged discoloration should be avoided.
Reduced circulation sometimes results in numbness. Numbness should be avoided.
A good stretch should feel like a good weightlifting workout. By the end of your session your penis should feel sore, fatigued… generally worn out.
However, you should NOT feel pain while hanging. You may experience some minor discomfort, but you should avoid any significant pain. If necessary, remove the hanger and readjust.
Under no circumstances should the hanger ever be allowed to slip. Tighten the hanger so that neither the hanger itself nor the wrap rides over the head. Do not over-tighten. It is okay if some foreskin slips over the head.
You should be totally flaccid at all times. Hanging while partially or fully erect may increase the risk of injury.
Avoid twisting or bending the penis while hanging. Doing so may increase the risk of injury.
Make sure to keep the hanger's weight attachment hook (see illustration page) centered on the nylon strap. An uneven pull may increase the risk of injury.
Using the BibHanger
(Refer to illustration page as appropriate)
As with any type of stretching, you should always warm up first. A heating pad, hot water bottle, or rice sock
(a sock filled with rice and heated in the microwave) are all good means to this end.
Another alternative to the rice sock is the Thermo-flex, available at www.unique-heat.com, but I have not personally tried it. The entire pubic area should be warmed for at least five minutes and then for roughly the first half of each set.
Some form of wrapping material must be used in conjunction with the BibHanger. This is necessary for several reasons including: gathering the skin, providing cushion, and giving protection. Any number of different materials may be used, but whatever you choose should be soft, at least slightly elastic, easy to handle, and either cheap or washable. Don't choose a material that sticks to the skin, making removal difficult or painful.
Latex products such as rubber gloves, swim caps or sheets of Theraband™ are the most popular choices.
Theraband™ is now available on this site in a 6" x 36" sheet. It will need to cut
into either three 2" strips or four 1.5" strips.
Theraband is also available at Amazon.
Some guys like to use sports wrap. But generally, Ace brand bandage is too bulky, and does not work. Some of the thinner sports wraps may be OK. Cloth, such as sweatshirt material, may be used, but it is usually not elastic enough.
Many people prefer to use two materials in conjunction. In this case, either wrap with latex first and then with cloth or sports wrap, or with cloth or sports wrap first and then with latex. Latex bonds well under pressure; however it tends to stick to the skin and can be uncomfortable when removed. Wrapping with cloth or sports wrap first prevents this problem, though some people find the textured surface of sports wrap irritating. A small amount of baby powder or talc may provide more comfort.
Temperature and humidity can play a role in your choice of wrap. In hot and/or humid environments, latex can become uncomfortable and more prone to slippage. In these environments a cloth wrap is preferable since it wicks moisture away from the skin, allowing it to breathe.
Whatever material you choose should be cut into manageable strips. 1½ x 15 inches is a good size, with one or two strips being sufficient.
Grasp the head of your penis with one hand, and stretch your penis away from your body. With your other hand, smooth the skin of your penis toward your body. Avoid wrinkled skin beneath the wrap. Starting ½ to 1 inch behind the head, begin wrapping the shaft. The first wrap should circle the shaft perpendicular to the length of the penis. Each succeeding wrap should spiral down toward the base in 1/8 to ¼ inch increments. You need to wrap enough of the shaft to accommodate the length of the hanger and still leave an extra ½ inch left over. If necessary, wrap all the way to the base. Wrap more loosely or more tightly according to comfort.
Secure the wrap with a small piece of Scotch tape. Other types of tape are not recommended since their adhesives tend to make the wrapping material gummy.
The wrap should produce a semi-solid area on which to attach the hanger. The hanger should be attached about ¼ to ½ inch below the top of the wrap, behind the head.
If you attach the hanger farther from the head, it is especially important to make sure you pull any extra skin back toward your bodyboth before wrapping as well after attaching the hanger (before tightening it down completely). Simply slip a finger under the wrap, and pull back the excess skin. This will allow more stress to be placed on the ligaments rather than on the skin. Stretching the skin alone can be painful and is of no value to PE.
Attach the hanger in slightly different positions from time to time to avoid soreness or irritation from overuse.
The molded gel on the inside of the hanger should be all the padding required. Any additional padding may increase the incidence of slippage and further hinder blood flow.
The gel is somewhat delicate. It is kept in place by pressure. If the hanger is too loose, the gel could detach. This should be avoided.
The BibHanger can be adjusted to fit a penis of almost any size or shape. You should not, however, attempt to use the hanger straight out of the box without first making sizing adjustments.
There are three ways to make adjustments to the size of the hanger: with the tightener screw on the top of the hanger, and with each of the two adjustment screws on the bottom. These three adjustments determine three characteristics of the hanger: gap, toe, and tightness. In conjunction with the amount and type of wrap you use and the positioning of the hanger on your penis, these three screws create a nearly infinite spectrum of adjustment possibilities.
Once you do find a comfortable setting, adjustments will still need to be made from time to time as a result of temporary variations in flaccid size, changes in the type or amount of wrap you use, and, of course, to allow for growth.
Positioning. To get a preliminary idea of what adjustments need to be made so that the hanger will fit your penis: wrap, and attach the hanger.
Place the shaft of your penis as low in the shaft well as possible. Do not position your penis so low that the underside gets pinched when the hinge is tightened.
The head of your penis should seat directly in front of the head well with the first set of thumbs positioned on either side of the shaft, directly behind the glans.
Depending on the amount of weight used, the shaft may be able to take all the weight without the head seating in the head well. This is acceptable. No pressure should be placed on the top of the shaft directly behind the head. Delicate nerve bundles run through this area.
Gap. Gap refers to the amount of space between the two halves of the hanger. The hanger has two gaps, an upper and a lower.
Remove the hanger from your penis, and completely loosen the two wing nuts on the hanger's right skid. Pull the right skid away from the hinge. You will find two sets of nuts. The nuts immediately next to the hinge are used to attach the bolts to the hinge. DO NOT LOOSEN THESE NUTS. The nuts adjacent to these nuts are the adjustment nuts. There are two, one at the front and one at the rear of the hanger.
Place the shaft of your penis in the shaft well, close the hanger, and estimate the amount of gap needed on the bottom. The bottom gap should be equal to or slightly greater than the top gap. Unscrew the adjustment nuts as necessary to create the appropriate gap. Then retighten both wing nuts.
Toe. The positioning of the front and rear adjustment nuts need not be the same. If there is a significant variation in girth along the length of your penis, you have a useful preliminary indication of the necessary toe, whether toe-in or toe-out.
Toe-in: the hanger is adjusted such that its front endthe end closer to the head of your penisis
narrower than its back end.
Toe-out: the hanger is adjusted such that its front end is wider than its back end.
Be careful not to toe-in the hanger too much. The hanger is more likely to slip off when toed-in excessively.
Attaching the hanger
When attaching the hanger, put the shaft in the shaft well as low as possible, put the top tightening bolt over, and spin the wing nut down, while squeezing the two sides together with your left hand.
Then, push down on the area between the head and front of the hanger with your left thumb, while you pull up on the bottom of the hanger with your left palm or fingers; while you are tightening the hanger. This will force the shaft low in the shaft well, and you should be able to keep the shaft straight in the hanger while you tighten.
Tighten the hanger enough so that it has a good grip on the wrapped bundle, and will stay low in the shaft well. Then you can stop pushing the shaft down, and begin to pulse push the hanger forward, feeling the hanger grasp the internals, as you finish the preliminary tightening. As you are doing this, you want to find a comfortable set of internals for the hanger to ride on. When you have felt the hanger firmly grasp the internals, and the shoulders of the head have been formed, apply the weight.
Then, you will need to retighten the hanger a couple times during your first set. After the collagenous tissue matrix fluid has been squeezed out, you should be good for your subsequent sets.
Tightness. The hanger should be tight enough to avoid slippage. As noted before, when tightened correctly, the gap on top should be equal to or slightly less than the gap on the bottom. This places the greatest amount of pressure high on the sides of the shaft on the two major chambers of the penis, the corpora cavernosa. This is important with respect to both safety and comfort.
Enough pressure must be generated from tightening to accommodate the amount of weight to be hung. This requires experimentation.
Moreover, though it may seem counterintuitive,
the tighter the hanger the better your circulation will tend to
be. There are exceptions. Experiment accordingly.
Begin tightening the tightener's wing nut. As you tighten, tug on the hanger with increasingly greater force to determine when the appropriate tension has been reached. You shouldn't feel any pain. If you do, loosen the hanger and reposition.
Note: The tightener washer must be seated securely in the washer seat on the right side of the hanger. When the wing nut is tightened, the bolt may also turn, causing the bolt to run through the nut on the left side of the hanger. This will not cause any harm.
Intensity. Whatever routine you decide upon, you should start slowly, using low weight (two pounds or fewer) and short hang times. As your body adapts, the amount of weight and the number of sets may be increased. The maximum hang time for one set should not exceed twenty minutesthough you should not be discouraged if you are unable to hang this long. Everyone's body is different.
Hanging tends to decrease blood flow. Each set should be followed by a ten-minute rest period (more if necessary) in which normal circulation is restored. Do not hesitate to cut a set short if the color or temperature of your penis indicates you should do so. Be vigilant!
From time to time, fatigue or soreness may dictate that you hang less weight than you hung the day before or in a previous set. This is normal. Do not attempt to hang more weight than is comfortable. Moreover, do not attempt to
increase the amount of weight as long as fatigue or soreness is present.
Recovery.You should always go by what you FEEL. If you become completely fatigued during a set or a session, cannot hang even at greatly reduced weight, then you should take a day off. In that case, your body is warning of possible injury with the application of more stress.
Variations. The BibHanger is designed to be used at different angles to allow stretching over a greater range. The skids on the bottom of the hanger allow you to use it over the edge of a chair. By sliding up or down in the chair, you can change the angle of hang. You can also hang over a leg or, with a rope extension, over your shoulder.
Remember: avoid twisting or bending the shaft of the penis while hanging. Doing so may increase the risk of injury.
If you have hung before, you will probably find the BibHanger places pressure on different areas than you are accustomed to. Until your penis adapts, you may need to decrease the amount of weight you use.
Do not be afraid to try different wrappings, hanger placements, hanger configurations, etc. Changes will help prevent chafing and unnecessary soreness.
Any increase in the length of your penis will require the skin to stretch a certain amount. However, you will likely want to avoid stretching the skin more than is necessary. To that end, the hanger should not be placed too far behind the head since this may force the skin to support the weight. You may perceive the resulting feeling as a burning sensation.
Tingling or burning on the skin may also indicate a slippage problem. Adjust your wrap or try increasing the tightness slightly. Slippage is more likely to occur with the use of excess padding.
Mottling or Blueness. These symptoms are indicative of reduced circulation. Reduce the tightness of the hanger. Reduce the amount of blood in the head before you attach the hanger.
While hanging, attempt to stimulate circulation. Gently massage the shaft from the base to the hanger. Kegel.
Bruising or Darkening. It is not uncommon to experience some bruising, darkening of the skin, or other superficial discoloration while hanging. Vitamin E and
Arnica montana have been found to assist in healing, and can be found at health food stores and some supermarkets in liquid, cream, and lotion forms.
You must differentiate between pain from resulting from the attachment, and discomfort or soreness from the work being done.
Top of Head. Place shaft and head lower in wells. Attach hanger further behind the head. Adjust top and bottom gaps.
Sides of Head. Place shaft and head higher in the wells. Toe-out the hanger. Attach hanger further behind head. Adjust top and bottom gaps.
Head (General). Attach hanger further behind the head.
Shaft. Toe-in the hanger.
Skin. Adjust wrap. Attach hanger along a different portion of the shaft.
The plastic parts of the hanger may be cleaned with warm soapy water. Rinse and allow to dry before use. Permitting water to remain in contact with the metal parts may promote rust.
As you can see, the tremendous variety of adjustments means you should be able to find a setting that is comfortable for you. It also means that making adjustments is not just a one-time affair. At first this may be frustrating. But remember, one minor adjustment can make all the difference. Adjust only one element at a time, and keep experimenting. Experimentation and perseverance are the keys.
