TIME AND THE PUMPING PROCESS
Many pumpers feel that they grow fast in the early part of a pump session, then seem to “Plateau” or reach a point where enlargement either stops or greatly slows down. It would seem logical to say that the longer you pump, the larger you would get. 
Not necessarily true!

The question is one of effective time. “Effective” means any time when the flow and gain of fluids that cause enlargement is taking place at the desired rate, and that is not something that occurs continually. Effective time also varies in the level of efficiency- as the flow reduces, the level drops. Pumping up faster or larger is a factor of effective time only. Time spent in the pump that’s not effective is totally wasted.

This fluid flow and gain process that creates enlargement is restricted by the pumping operation itself, in these three ways:

  • As swelling takes place, tissues are engorged- including those of the passageways bringing fluid in, actually reducing the diameters of those passageways. 
  • There is a pinching pressure attempting to close these passageways right at the point where the cylinder entry meets your body. The passageways are part of the tissue being compressed by the sealing surface of the tube.
  • It is further complicated by another easily demonstrated process, that of “vacuum collapse”. Take a soft tube, and connect it to your vac pump. With an open end, it will suck indefinitely. Now squeeze the tube down in the middle. As the opening gets narrower, two things happen. One, the flow through the restriction reduces- and two, the vac level on the restricted portion increases. There comes a point where the internal vacuum itself pulls the tube closed- and all flow stops.

All of these conditions combine to either restrict or stop the process of enlargement. The longer the condition lasts, the tighter the restriction can get- and thereby further reducing the level of effectiveness, ultimately ending effective time altogether. The issue is one of making all the time in the pump effective time, and maximizing the level of that effectiveness.

HOW DO YOU FIND OUT WHAT WORKS?

We did an experiment to try and measure the extent of this. To determine exactly what gain was occurring, we went to Displacement Pumping. (Explained in another Advanced Pumping Article) Two pumpers who run close to the same in size and usual enlargement rate provided the comparisons. We selected the one that usually pumped up faster as the control subject; and the slower one as the test subject. Both used STJ’s as cylinders, and both pumped wet with precisely the same level of water in the jar. Both jars were marked for measurement by adding water that had been precisely measured and creating a CC (Cubic Centimeter) scale on the side The scale started with the zero set at the water mark with the jar vertical and inverted, with enough water to cover the pumper. As the enlargement develops, it displaces water and raises the level on the scale- precisely measuring the volume of change. We did this experiment on four occasions using different schedules each time, with substantially different results.

The control subject would pump at a vac level of 5″, and hold it for 60 minutes.

The test subject would pump at the same vac level, but would interrupt the session with an alternate state as called for by the experiment schedule.

The result is measured in relative terms:
The change in volume (actual gain) of the test subject, as compared to the control subject expressed as a plus or minus percentage. The volume of the control subject’s gain over the zero mark would always be 100. If the test subject developed 10% less gain, the test score would be 90%. If the gain was identical, the score would be 100%; if the gain was 10% more, the score would be 110%. The “Relative effectiveness” is the score points gained per minute; obtained by dividing the score by the time at level.

Four test schedules were tried, as follows:

  1. Break at 15 minute intervals, exit and massage 2 minutes, return to vac level. (3 breaks)
  2. Reduce vac level to zero once every 15 minutes, hold zero for 1 minute, return to level.
  3. Reduce vac to zero every once every 10 minutes, hold zero for 1 minute, return to level.
  4. Reduce vac to 1″ every 5 minutes, hold for 30 seconds, return to level.

Here’s the scorecard of the test subject for these tests:

SCHEDULE  SCORE  TIME @ LEVEL  RELATIVE EFFECTIVENESS 
CONTROL  100  60 MINUTES  1.66 
#1  108  54 MINUTES  2.00 
# 2  111  57 MINUTES  194 
# 3  121  54 MINUTES  2.24 
# 4  133  54 MINUTES  2.46

# 4  133  54 MINUTES  2.46 

 

SO-WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

In every schedule, taking breaks to restore circulation and relieve the closure resulted in faster net gain. Frequent reliefs of vacuum for short intervals are the most effective overall. The indication is that a sort of pulse-pumping with intervals is far more effective than constant pressure. It’s also logical to conclude that if the test had run for a two-hour period, the second hour score increases would have been greater than the first, because the loss of effectiveness in the control subject would be somewhat accumulative or progressive.

One other note- the subjects were sitting and not active during the tests. Activity would help relieve some of the restriction problems. It’s commonly recognized that being erect while in cylinder is more effective than a sitting position. This is due to the weight of the cylinder pulling downward, helping to reduce the pressure the vacuum can exert against the body in the seal area, thereby creating less restriction to fluid flow.

If you feel you have reached your “plateau”, try the take-a-break system; get your fluid passages open again, and- pump on!

 

How Common Is Erectile Dysfunction?

How Common Is Erectile Dysfunction?

By Katie Wilkinson, MPH, MCHES

Published on September 28, 2021
Medically reviewed by Matthew Wosnitzer, MD

Edited for content.

Erectile dysfunction (ED), or impotence, is the inability to achieve and maintain an erection for sexual activity. While the occasional failure to get an erection is not uncommon, if it happens consistently, or more than 50% of the time, it may be ED. It can be a temporary experience, or develop into a long-term condition that requires treatment.

Prevalence

On a global scale, ED affects 3% to 76.5% of all men. The wide range is due to the different measures used in studies to evaluate ED.

In the United States, it’s estimated that 30 million men experience ED.2 Worldwide, there are about 150 million men living with ED, and by the year 2025, it’s predicted that over 300 million men will have ED.

Common Causes

ED can be caused by a number of factors relating to physical and mental health, including:

  • Physical and health conditions that involve different systems in the body, such as the vascular, neurological, or endocrine systems; can include issues with nerve signals or blood flow to the penis
  • Side effects from medication, which can include antidepressants, medication to manage blood pressure, tranquilizers, sedatives, ulcer medication, and prostate cancer therapy
  • Psychological or emotional causes such as depression, anxiety, fear associated with sexual performance, general stress, or low self-esteem
  • Lifestyle behaviors and health-related factors that are associated with ED include smoking, being overweight, lack of exercise, and substance (alcohol or drug) use

Risk Factors

Certain risk factors have been found to increase the likelihood of experiencing ED. They can include:

    • Age: The chances of developing ED increases with age, particularly in men over 60 years old.
    • Tobacco use: Research has found that smokers are 1.5 times more likely to experience ED than nonsmokers.
    • High blood pressure (hypertension): About 30% to 50% of people living with hypertension also experience ED.
    • Type 2 diabetes: Between 35% and 90% of diabetic men will develop ED.
    • High cholesterol: Statins used to treat high cholesterol showed improved erectile function.
    • Hypogonadism: This is a condition where the body doesn’t produce enough sex hormones, including testosterone. Since testosterone is necessary for the ability to maintain an erection, people with hypogonadism who are treated with testosterone replacement therapy can see improved erectile function.
    • Obesity: Several studies have indicated that men with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 25 begin to experience a 1.5 to three times greater risk of ED than those with lower BMIs.
    • Depression: Men living with depression are two times more likely to experience ED. Treating depression with selective serotonin uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) can also increase risk of ED.

Stress and anxiety, particularly performance-related anxiety, can also cause issues with sexual activity and erectile function.

Associated Conditions

In addition to diabetes, hypertension, and hypogonadism, the National Institute for Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases also lists the following conditions and diseases as associated with ED:

  • Heart and blood vessel conditions, including atherosclerosis
  • Injuries of the spinal cord, penis, prostate gland, bladder, or pelvic area
  • Prostate or bladder surgery
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Peyronie’s disease, a condition where scar tissue develops and creates a bend in the penis

Treatment

Treatment for ED can take many forms and depends on the root cause of the individual’s ED. Because of ED’s impact on sexual relationships, it’s worth discussing treatment options with your sexual partner.

Lifestyle

Avoiding or stopping the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs may help with ED.

Increasing physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight can also be a way to improve erectile function.

Mental Health Counseling

Because emotional and psychological concerns can play a role in ED, speaking with a mental health professional can be beneficial. They can help identify ways to manage anxiety and work through stress that may be impacting sexual performance.

Medication

Oral (PDE5 inhibitors), injectable, or suppository medications can be prescribed to help achieve and maintain an erection. For those with low testosterone (hypogonadism), testosterone replacement therapy may be prescribed.

Treatment may also involve adjusting or changing current medications that hinder the ability to get an erection.

Devices and Procedures

The following devices and procedures can be used to treat ED:

  • Penis pump: This device uses vacuum action to pull blood into the penis to create an erection. It has a tube where the penis is placed and a pump that draws air out of the tube and creates suction. Once the blood is pulled into the penis, an elastic band is placed at the base of the penis to prevent the blood from going back into the body and to keep the erection for about 30 minutes.
  • Arterial repair surgery: Procedures to repair clogged blood vessels in the penis may increase blood flow to allow for erections. This treatment is usually reserved for patients under the age of 30.
  • Implantable devices: These include surgically placed devices that either inflate or include semi-rigid rods to help a person achieve an erection.

A Word From Verywell

While many men might feel embarrassed by their erectile dysfunction, it should be a comfort to know that it is a very common condition, affecting at least 150 million men worldwide. It is also a very treatable condition.

Talk to your healthcare provider if you experience issues achieving and maintaining an erection. Even though it may be uncomfortable to talk about, proper sexual functioning is a key part of your overall health and well-being.

’90 Day Fiancé’: Jesse defends himself for using penis enlarger after massive outrage

90 Day Fiancé’: Jesse defends himself for using penis enlarger after massive outrage. [Image Source: TLC/ YouTube]

The former reality TV star was not happy with the severe criticism he received

by S Ramon



This article is a repost which originally appeared on blastingnews

“90 Day Fiancé” star Jesse Meester has never been afraid of displaying his well-chiseled body. The popular reality star often posts some attractive pictures on his Instagram account, and many fans have admitted that the Amsterdam native is one of the most handsome men to appear on “90 Day Fiancé.” However, Jesse recently received criticism for posting a controversial picture that made him look like he had an extra-large penis.

Fans furious on Jesse

In a recent Instagram post, Jesse posed for a picture wearing only a t-shirt and some underwear. However, the huge bulge on his crouch attracted the attention of his many Instagram followers.

Several fans instantly accused him of using a penis enlarger since the huge bump on his crouch seemed fake when they compared it to other pictures that Jesse has posted in his underpants. Following the huge backlash, Jesse deleted the picture and later posted another version of the same photograph which had his crouch cropped out.

Below is the picture Jesse deleted after massive outrage.

 

The Amsterdam native was not happy with the criticism, and he posted several lengthy messages to defend his actions. Jesse said that his critics were jealous of his success, and he reasoned that the fact that people were talking about him meant that he was doing the right thing.

He encouraged his followers to take charge of their lives and stop following what other people thought. Some fans supported Jesse’s decision to post the provocative picture. They argued that he had a right to improve his appearance, and there was no harm in him using a penis enlarger to enhance his features.

However, a majority of fans felt that Jesse’s use of a penis enlarger showed that he was insecure with his “package.” It appears that the fan’s criticism made Jesse change his mind and delete the picture. The 27-year-old reality star got his big break after he appeared on season one and two of “90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days” with his girlfriend at the time, Darcey Silva.

Darcey and Jesse had connected over the Internet, and afterward, the American reality star traveled to Amsterdam and spent time with her new boyfriend. However, their relationship did not last long due to their constant arguing and never-ending drama. The couple broke up after two seasons on the popular TLC show.

Relationship with Darcey

After splitting up with Jesse, Darcey began dating Tom Brooks. Despite initially getting along, the couple’s relationship started to sour after Tom accused his new girlfriend of having feelings for Jesse. After Tom made the accusation, Jesse appeared on the show and confirmed that he was still in contact with Darcey. He told producers that she was still contacting him, but his ex-girlfriend denied the allegation.

After a turbulent long-distance relationship, Darcey finally broke up with Tom on the recently concluded season, and it will be interesting to see if she comments on Jesse’s penis enlargement mishap.

6 Ways To Keep Your Penis In Peak Condition And Have The Best Sex of Your Life

6 Ways To Keep Your Penis In Peak Condition And Have The Best Sex of Your Life

A top urologist breaks down his biggest rules for male sexual wellness.

Dr. Judson Brandeis

This article is a repost which originally appeared on MAXIM

As men get older, there are certain changes that seem inevitable, especially having to do with our bodies. One of the amazing things about the advances in modern medicine is that our life expectancy is at the highest it has been in human history. And as our lives become longer, so does our appetite to enjoy ourselves with our partners. With intimacy being such an important part of every relationship, one of the most common questions I get asked is how to keep a man’s penis working well. 

Here are the six most important things I tell my patients to do if they want to have the best sex of their lives:

Check Your Testosterone Levels

Testosterone peaks for men in their twenties, and then slowly declines over time. In fact, it’s not uncommon for a man’s testosterone to drop by 75% over the remainder of his life. When testosterone is low, men often feel grumpy. Other signs include loss of muscle, fat gain, trouble sleeping, loss of libido and/or erectile dysfunction. 

By correcting testosterone deficiencies, a man can expect to enjoy many benefits normally associated with youth like an improvement in body composition, sleep quality and most notably, libido. Testosterone therapy also aids erectile function, meaning not only an increase in appetite but in performance, as well.

Boost Your Nitric Oxide Levels

There are two different, but complementary systems to move blood around the body. One, the Nitric Oxide system, releases compounds that trigger the blood vessels to open, while the Phosphodiesterase (PDE) system helps to close them. Unfortunately, as a man ages his nitric oxide levels decline. You can boost nitric oxide levels easily over time by adding more watermelon, beets and greens to your diet, or if rapid improvement is desired, taking a supplement like AFFIRM.

Explore PDE-5 Inhibitors

Replenishing your body’s nitric oxide is not the only part of a successful strategy. The other system at work during an erection is the Phosphodiesterase (PDE) system. Through research, science has been able to determine which enzymes reduce penile blood flow. It turns out the compound in question is called PDE-5 and many medications for treating ED block its function. PDE-5 inhibitors like Viagra and Cialis inhibit these enzymes, channeling blood preferentially into the penis. The medication starts working after thirty minutes and reaches full potency in about an hour. Men can take these medications daily if they want to always feel “locked and loaded.”

Find a GAINSWave Provider

While taking a nitric oxide booster or a PDE-5 inhibitor can certainly produce some results, research has shown the best outcome is when they are taken together. However, there is a critical third element that is often overlooked: the pipes. Unlike medications, GAINSWave® targets the underlying causes of erectile dysfunction, permanently growing new blood vessels to both increase the flow of blood to the penis while also improving erectile firmness. 

GAINSWave awakens dormant stem cells and triggers the release of growth factors which improve, repair and expand the blood vessels. And since GAINSWave is nonsurgical, painless and without side effects, intimacy is no longer tied to a schedule, returning spontaneity and vigor to any relationship. Therapy typically requires between six to twelve sessions, each around twenty minutes, spread out over the course of a few weeks. 

Although a little awkward at first, most patients quickly get used to any discomfort within the first few moments of the procedure. Improvement can begin immediately, but most men can expect peak performance to begin around four to six weeks post-treatment and last for a year or more depending on the health of the person.

Get Pumped

Did you know young men typically experience three to six erections every night? These erections last between five to ten minutes and account for thirty to sixty minutes of oxygenated stretching for the penis. As men age, these erections decrease in frequency and intensity, causing many men’s penis to shrink over time. 

Some even lose erectile ability completely. Using a vacuum device or pump once or twice a day to stretch the penis can help combat this. The pump artificially inflates the penis with oxygenated blood to help restore full function and size. Like the other items on this list, vacuum devices can be effective on their own, but are much more effective when used in concert with GAINSWave therapy. Vacuum devices are a great way to improve penile health as men age.

Bone Up On The Facts

Have you ever wondered why your tissue is able to repair itself seamlessly whenever you cut yourself? This is due to more than a hundred tiny, versatile growth factors stored within the platelets in your blood. Whenever there is a trauma, your body releases chemicals that attract existing platelets to the site of the injury. The result is focused growth of new blood vessels and tissue in that area. 

In medicine, platelet-rich plasma is often used with other treatments to speed healing. For a man, undergoing GAINSWave therapy can yield far better results when used in conjunction with PRP. GAINSWave plants the seed by stimulating the stem cells in the affected area. PRP is then added like fertilizer, accelerating the growth of new blood vessels within the penis. Although it has been in use in orthopedics, hair growth and dermatology, PRP therapy is only now being studied for its efficacy at repairing and restoring erectile function.

There are many options for optimizing male sexual health. Most, when used together, can not only restore your ability to enjoy life, for a lot of men it means enhancing life beyond their wildest dreams. Penile health may not be the most comfortable subject to bring up with your doctor, but the only way to ensure a great tomorrow is by doing something about it today.

I recently hosted a two-hour long webinar with wellness expert Susan Bratton that took an in-depth dive into the all the treatments that are helping men optimize their bedroom performance. Luckily, we recorded it! It’s among the most educational breakdowns on all things “penis”- related available. Watch the video above to find out why.

Healthy Sex Tips for Men

Healthy Sex Tips for Men

Medically reviewed by University of Illinois-Chicago, College of Medicine on January 9, 2017 — Written by Pamela Rogers, MS, PhD

This article is a repost which originally appeared on HealthLine

Overview

Sex is a mental and physical pursuit that sometimes feels like it should come with an instruction guide. As with anything else, what one man likes could be quite different from what another likes. It can be a challenge to find the right ingredients to a connected and orgasmic sex life.

As a man, it’s important to engage in activities that will maintain your overall health, which plays into your sexual health. Reducing stress, eating right, exercising, and avoiding bad habits like smoking and drinking alcohol in excess can keep you in prime shape. A healthy lifestyle also gives you sexual confidence, which isn’t a bad side effect. When you have the mental side of your sex game in gear, you can focus on the physical side.

Healthy sex “do’s”

Sex doesn’t have to be like the movies to be great. It’s between you and your partner to find out what turns both you and him on and what connects the two of you. Here are some tips to help you take sex to the next level.

Mastering foreplay

When it comes to foreplay, the key “triggers” for people can seem very different. For example, if you ask your partner if he wants to have sex and he quickly says no, you could be asking the right question with the wrong words or body language.

Foreplay is all about the emotion and wanting. It’s important to show that you don’t just want to have sex, but that you want to have sex with your partner, specifically.

Masturbation: misconceptions and realities

Masturbation releases chemicals in your body that relieve stress and just plain make you feel good. A common misconception some people have is if they’re in a relationship, they shouldn’t masturbate. First, it’s important to talk to your partner about how he feels about masturbation and to be clear on what is and isn’t OK. Some couples even try masturbating in front of each other. Not only can this teach you about your partner’s pleasure zones, but it can also demystify the act for your partner.

Other misconceptions that exist about masturbation include that it weakens an erection or that too much can harm your penis. While it’s possible to injure or chafe the skin from masturbation, there usually isn’t any harm in it. The only key difference here is to ask if masturbation gets in the way of daily activities or living your life. If the answer is yes, there could be a deeper connection between masturbation for you that you should talk to your doctor about.

Healthy sex “don’ts”

During the act

Sometimes the most important don’ts when it comes to sex are the simplest to say and the most difficult to grasp. But biology and time-tested knowledge make most of these actions major don’ts when it comes to sex:

  • Rushing through it or acting like it’s a chore. This is especially true if you’re in the driver’s seat giving your partner oral sex or other stimulation. Sex is about enjoyment and taking time.
  • Expecting gratitude or reciprocation. While a lot of times you can expect to give and receive, demanding it is quite a different thing. You shouldn’t expect applause every time you engage in foreplay (even if you didn’t want to or did an especially great job). Do things in the bedroom because you want to, not because you have to or because you expect a lot of thanks.

Other important don’ts to know

A major don’t for sex is focusing on the end result and not on the journey. Other don’ts to know include:

  • Engaging in rough sex or play without talking to your partner. Safe words that can indicate when you’ve gone too far exist for a reason. Establish one if the line is crossed between pleasure and pain.
  • Letting distractions in. No texting, phone answering, or stopping to check the score of a game.
  • Calling your partner by another name. This one speaks for itself.
  • Staying completely silent. From moans to words of encouragement, letting your partner know you’re into it can go a long way.

Men and erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) describes a symptom of several common but treatable problems. ED occurs when a man has difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection that can sustain sexual intercourse. It’s a complex condition because there are many contributing factors, including blood flow, nerve function, hormones, and more.

An estimated 50 percent of men in their 50s have mild to moderate ED, according to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This number goes up by 10 percent for every new decade of life. For instance, an estimated 80 percent of men in their 80s will experience some degree of ED.

If you’re experiencing any degree of ED, you should talk to your primary care doctor or urologist. There are several steps you can take to treat ED, not all of which involve taking medicines.

Lifestyle changes can help treat ED

  • Reduce alcohol intake.
  • Take steps to reduce stress in life. Try exercising, meditating, or doing activities you enjoy.
  • Quit smoking or abusing any illegal drugs or drugs that aren’t prescribed to you.
  • Get enough rest at night.
  • Lose weight if you’re overweight.
  • Seek counseling if your ED is triggered by stress, anxiety, or tension. You may also consider couple’s counseling if your ED is creating strain between you and your partner.

Schedule a regular check-up with your doctor to monitor for any health conditions that could affect erectile dysfunction, such as high blood sugar, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol levels. At this appointment, you can also review the medications you’re taking to identify if there are any that might be affecting your sexual health. While you shouldn’t discontinue any medicines without a doctor’s review, alternate medicines with fewer side effects may be available.

Medical treatments are also available for ED

There are medications available to increase blood flow to the penis. Examples of these include sildenafil (Viagra), avanafil (Stendra), tadalafil (Cialis), and vardenafil (Levitra). Each medicine isn’t without its side effects, so it’s important to review these carefully.

Hormone replacement therapies can treat low testosterone. These treatments can include a topical gel, patches, or injections.

Prescription medications are available that can be injected using a very fine needle into the side or base of your penis. This may be an alternative option if you can’t take ED medications due to a condition such as heart or liver disease.

Use of a vacuum erection device can encourage greater blood flow to your penis.

A device known as a penis pump can be implanted into your penis to allow you to achieve an erection. However, this is usually only recommended after other treatments and lifestyle changes have failed.

The takeaway

Sex is an important part of a man’s life and health, and age doesn’t have to change that. The most important key to a healthy sex life at any decade is communication with your partner. Honest, open communication about what feels good, what doesn’t feel good, and how you make each other feel is the key to better sex. Finding out what those are via communication can lead to one of life’s greatest pleasures.

Penis Measurement Challenges -Ask the Experts

mecoach AJ Alfaro male enhancement penis enlargement coach

male enhancement coach big al penis enlargement male enhancement penis measuring challengesBig Al, of MaleEnhancementCoach.com, answers questions about penis measuring challenges, in this Ask the Experts article.

If you have questions you’d like answered in an Ask the Experts article, please PM Kimberly at PEGymKMWylie – and she’ll have the experts here on PEGym get your questions.

Q. I’ve recently become obsessed with measuring and comparing my penis to others’

…and to objects like bananas and deodorant cans. It’s become a growing dread and I’m finding myself unable to easily get erections to measure anymore. Is there something wrong with me?

Big Al: This habit is a potentially destructive one you’re going to need to break yourself of! For one, your penis is very likely not going to change in true size from one instance to the next, so measuring several times a day isn’t an accurate way to gauge progress. Second, the obsession in and of itself is obviously creating a negative conditioning effect. This will merely worsen with time if you continue with this practice.

The immediate solution would be for you to restrict yourself to measuring once every two weeks- if you’re training. Measure only under at least a neutral mind state so as to avoid any negative conditioning effects and to ensure you get the best possible erection level for your assessment. This may require the use of emotional visualizations exercises- like those recommended for the Stop and Starts/edging exercise.

Q. I’ve been keeping track of my measurements using the Bathmate penis pump.

…When I compare them to measuring with a tape measure I get a totally different reading. I measure smaller in the pump than I do with the tape measure. Which way to measure should I use?

Big Al: Erectile fluctuation and the use of a comfort pad is likely going to give you a different reading than what you’d get during a standard measuring session using a tape measure. For the purposes of tracking gains, go with the tape measure option.

The Bathmate measure isn’t worthless, though- it can be used as a gauge for how intensely your pumping sessions are going. You’ll want to do your best to ensure your measure within the pump climbs as your training progresses.
