GUIDE – Popular Methods of Ball Stretching

TheLeather Ball Stretching Weightsre are several popular methods of ball stretching, but not all of them give the same results. If you are interested in ball stretching, you need to understand that, while this activity is not proved to be harmful, there are certain risks you need to avoid.

Ball stretching can be very fun and rewarding, and for many men, it’s sexually stimulating. Therefore, it’s not something that should cause pain and discomfort. This is one of the most important things to remember: severe discomfort and pain are not normal – if you experience any of them, you should take the device off.

This is one of the reasons why finding the best fit is so important. To ensure safety and the best experience (not the mention the best results), you need to use an appropriate ball stretching method. You need to know that not all methods and not all devices are good, so it’s very important to know what you’re doing before attempting ball stretching.

How Does it Work?

The basic principles of ball stretching are easy to understand and apply. It all depends on applying tension on your scrotum over a prolonged period of time. This will cause the scrotum, as well as the internal tissue (such as spermatic cord) to become longer and larger.

This stretching will in turn promote new cell growth in the scrotum, as well as internal scrotal tissue. This is how the skin and tissue expand. The tension and pressure applied thus make the scrotum longer, which makes testicles hang lower.

It’s important to note that this process will not prevent the usual changes in scrotal appearance. In other words, your scrotum will preserve its ability to change size based on temperature. Most men who perform ball stretching still find that their testicles go up and become smaller when it’s cold. This is normal. At the same time, ball stretching can cause a significant change in the appearance when it’s warm: you will see that your testicles do hang much lower.

The process of ball stretching should not be painful or troublesome. This is why it’s important to use devices specially made for this purpose. Many men find it pleasant or sexually stimulating to stretch their balls. Correctly fitted ball stretchers can be worn during sex or masturbation without a problem, and many men report greater sexual satisfaction while wearing their stretchers.

Manual Stretching vs. Stretching with Devices

Generally speaking, there are two types of stretching methods: manual stretching and stretching using various devices. It’s also possible to use a combination of these methods or to use several different devices for stretching. Oftentimes, it will be down to your individual preferences, desired effect and your body.

Manual stretching is usually done though exercises. These exercises will make the balls hang lower, but the results you achieve through this method are not as pronounced as the ones you can get with ball stretchers. However, even if you use stretchers, you may perform scrotum massage and exercise after a shower or a bath. The warm water will make the scrotum relaxed and the skin flexible.

These manual exercises require you to pull the scrotal skin. It’s also useful to stretch the skin between testicles and the shaft of the penis. You may also use various ointments and oils to improve your skin elasticity and achieve better results.

Ball stretching using devices, however, gives more effective results. This method of ball stretching also puts a pressure on the scrotum that many men find sexually arousing. It’s therefore not surprising that the majority of men who wish to experiment with ball stretching use devices to achieve the desired effect.

The most popular stretching devices are leather ball stretchers and metal ball weights. All of these items can be used alone or in combinations. All ball stretchers, be it leather or metal, come in many different weights and diameters, so it’s possible to find the ones that suit your needs and preferences perfectly.

You are free to experiment and choose different ball weights to achieve different effects. Whatever you do, however, it’s strongly advised to use professionally-made ball stretchers and to avoid various household items. Using random items can only lead to injury and you won’t be able to achieve the desired effect. This is why you should stick to leather or metal ball weights to achieve the best result and to make ball stretching enjoyable and safe.

Put Some Weight On your Body Piercings!

Piercings can represent a person’s personality in many different ways. The placement of the piercing(s), the size, shape, and the jewelry all help define that person’s individuality a little more. Some people like to push their bodies to limits they never thought they could reach or handle. Body modifications help them achieve this goal.


Most body modification enthusiasts enjoy stretching or gauging their piercings to larger sizes. This could be for a number of reasons. One reason could be that they want to see how far they can push their bodies to the max limit. Another could have to do with their individuality. The need to stand out in a crowd, personal preferences as far as the way they want to appear, or even sexual desires may also play a role in the decision to stretch or gauge their piercing.


The Most Common Body Piercings:


One of the most common piercings to gauge is the ear lobe. After the ear has been pierced and completely healed it can be stretched to astonishing sizes. There are different ways to gauge the ears. Tapers are very popular. These are spike like body jewelry that come in a number of different sizes, used to gradually stretch the piercing. Another way to gauge is by using weights.  Once the gauged piercing has healed, adding weights can help stretch it to greater size. “S” hooks are usually used to add the weights to the piercing.


Weights are not just used to help stretch piercings to larger sizes. Some men who practice ball stretching also enjoy adding weights to their ball weights for more pleasure or for better results. Some ball weights are specifically designed to accommodate added weights. For instance, a “Parachute Ball Stretcher” is designed so that weights can be added to the chains that are attached to the soft leather “parachute”. There are different sizes and shapes of weights that can be added to satisfy the individual’s needs.


Adding on weights to a labia piercing is not unheard of either. Women with labia piercings find that adding the weights to be very arousing and visually stimulating. The weights seem to increase the sensitivity for some women, making this to be a very fun activity. For those who are into the BDSM scene you can also use the weights in part of these practices. Being used during a bondage sessions and allowing your partner to add weights to the labia piercing can prove to be very erotic to both parties involved.
