Well friends, it arrived and I’m wearing it now. Setting it up was simple, and so far I’m impressed with the quality of construction and the comfort of wearing it. Hopefully I won’t be telling a different story six hours from now; that’s the real test.
As you can see in the image above, there are little grooved markings to indicate how much tension is being applied to your dinger. The number of markings shown when you’re in the position you plan to stay in will indicate the weight, in grams, that you are applying. I’m starting with three markings visible, which roughly equates to 690g of force. This seems like fairly moderate amount of tension, and is within the recommended range.
I work from home currently, so sitting with this applied doesn’t really change anything in my day. It does seem like it’s possible to tuck it into my pants in an upward position and walk around, but bending over would be quite annoying.
Update: Today I lengthened for a total of 4 hours. I completed two 1.5 hour increments and a one hour increment. I can tell it’s going to take a little while to perfect the level of vacuum pressure used to fixate the head. At the end of all three sessions there was some pain and discomfort, but nothing too serious. I may experiment with different tension settings, but the ~690g actually seems to be quite reasonable. Overall I’m feeling optimistic at this point, but slightly sore; we’ll see if that fades by morning.
