Adding rods and putting on the device
« on: February 24, 2015, 04:30:04 PM »

My current extender is the andropenis gold. They tell you to add rods with a given time frame. Problem is eventually the length of the device will be longer than my stretched flaccid... i don't know how i'm meant to put it on? The top you can pull down but it's very still and requires alot of force to do so. I'm worried i may get injured trying to do this. Can i not twist the rods instead of something and keep my traction device no longer then my stretched penis?
Thanks
Steve

They assume (maybe a sales gimmick?) that your stretched flaccid will grow by the time you can add additional length.

Oh ok i hope so. Because otherwise i will some how have to force down the springs to get my penis in which will be ridiculously difficult. Should i add some extra tension? They just say to add rods but the device does have the option.
Am i right in saying your stretched flaccid will grow first then erect gains will occur?

In my opinion, you should not add nothing. Add just if you feel comfortable with the stretch.
Also in my opinion, the stretched flaccid and erected length will grow in parallel.

Thanks,
If i reach a point where i cannot add more rods because my penis does not stretch that far... so not allowing me to strap my penis in. Should i add tension by turning the rods? I mean as long as it's comfortable.

Don't go by length, go by tension. Find out how much tension is created at each tension line by measuring it with a kitchen scale etc, then stay at around 900 grams of force as a beginner, moving up to 1200 then no higher than 1500 as you build up the hours.

And yes, add tension by turning the rods. Add rods when you've reach the limit of turning the existing rods.

My current extender is the andropenis gold. They tell you to add rods with a given time frame. P

Throw out those instructions. Many of these are written to be overly aggressive and more targeted at so called penis lengthening which is what most of these devices were originally marketed for. Go at your pace and what is tolerable.

Need to clear this up i do not have peyronies. I'm using this purely for length gain lost from surgery and to hopefully even out the penis girth a little bit maybe as the device does add some girth.
Thing is this device the rods aren't very clear... you can turn them etc doesn't really indicate what grams it's on. also when i turn it it kind of unscrews the thing... does anyone know if the Andropenis gold is designed to allow increasing tension....

''Find out how much tension is created at each tension line by measuring it with a kitchen scale etc''

Not really sure how to do this? I mean the only scale thing i have in my kitchen is one which has a bowl and then weights the otherside used for measuring flower. Like what do i do put the device on top of the weight side or something? Not sure i have the right equipment for that.

Thanks alot for the help guys! Starting to this andropenis wasnt the best option... may consider phallo forte one.
