Ball Stretchers: Is Bigger always Better?

Ball StretchersSome people wonder how to make their ball stretchers more effective and how to achieve the best results in the shortest period of time.

The trouble with ball stretching is that it’s not necessarily permanent – your balls will stretch when wearing a ball weight but they will typically go back to their original size in a matter of days.

That being said, it is possible to achieve more permanent results, but it takes a lot of time and patience.

Wearing Big Ball Stretchers

Since ball stretching is an ongoing process, it is not surprising to know that there are so many people who wonder how to get a head start. One of the common ideas is to wear big, heavy ball stretchers instead of smaller and less intense ones. Does that mean that the bigger is better?

To a point, yes. Bigger, metal ball stretchers can sure bring more effective and more permanent results. However, there is such a thing as being “too much”. If you take a huge stretcher straight away it will actually be counter-productive. Instead of stretching, you will only hurt yourself and set your progress back. In other words, bigger is not always better. Going for the largest and heaviest stretchers out there can be a very bad idea.

The trouble with ball stretchers that are too big and heavy is that they can be too intense for your body. Your scrotum needs to stretch gradually or else you’re risking an injury. Too much weight applied to the scrotum will damage the tissue and lead to numerous problems. It is also counter-productive when it comes to ball stretching results since any injury means that you have to pause stretching and wait until your body is recovered to continue. By the time you are ready to take stretchers again you might lose all the results you’ve had in the past so you might need to start from scratch. All because you tried to cheat by using stretchers that were too big and too heavy for you.

What to Do?

Instead of pushing your body with extremely heavy and big ball weights, you need to find a good balance between comfort and results. In other words, your ball stretching routine should include devices that are strong enough to provide good results but also light enough not to cause health and other problems. This is the only way to ensure safety and, ultimately, effective results.

You should particularly stick to this rule if you wish your ball stretching results to be long-lasting and if you truly want to have those great low hangers. The more you force your body into tight heavy, uncomfortable stretchers the more problems you’ll have. Injuries and other problems will become common, which will only set your progress back and slow you down.

In other words, you need to be patient. Ball stretching is not something you can do overnight. You simply can’t get those low hangers out of nowhere. There is no gimmick, and wearing too big and heavy stretchers is definitely not a recipe for a success.

Instead of relying on weights that are too heavy, go for smaller or thinner ball stretchers. That being said, it’s best to use metal ball weights since they are more effective, just make sure not to take too much. Do not use more than one stretcher at a time until your body is ready. If you notice any pain or discomfort, remove the stretcher immediately. Follow these few simple rules and you’ll be at the right path for getting those impressive low hangers you’ve been dreaming of!

Measuring for Ball Stretchers

mIn order to enjoy your ball stretchers to the fullest and to get the best results, it is crucial to choose a correct size. This is particularly important if you wish to go with metal ball stretchers and ball weights. It is vital to wear only ball stretching devices of appropriate size to ensure safety and satisfaction. Wearing ball stretchers that are too small or too big will not only ruin the experience but also put you at a significant risk.

Stretchers smaller than your size will be too tight, which will significantly constrict the blood flow and lead to injuries. The grip will also be too strong and uncomfortable to allow you to enjoy. Stretchers larger than your size will be too loose to provide adequate stimulation. Furthermore, they can make your testicles simply slip off. Keep in mind: an ill-fitted stretcher is not only useless but also dangerous.

To prevent these problems it is important to know your proper size. The proper size cannot be guessed – in order to know how big your ball stretchers should be it is necessary to measure yourself. Measuring yourself for a ball stretcher is not difficult but it requires some patience and precision.

Things to Keep in Mind

Choosing an appropriately-sized ball weight or another stretching device is mandatory to ensure safety. Not only that, but it will also provide the best results and the most effective stretching. This is why you should pay special attention to measuring.

The first thing you need to keep in mind is that you can probably wear ball weights of different sizes comfortably. That is, for every penis there are a few comfortable ball stretcher diameters. The goal is to know the sizes (diameters) that suit you perfectly.

Ideally, your ball stretcher should be tight enough to provide effective results and to prevent testicles to slip through. At the same time, it has to be loose enough to be comfortable and not to restrict the blood flow.

There is an ideal diameter (ball weight size) you are going for. At the same time, keep in mind that there will probably be several diameters (sizes) that fit you. As such, measuring will determine your ideal diameter but also the minimum and maximum diameters you can use. You should never wear a ball stretcher with a diameter smaller than the minimal one that suits you, nor the one with a diameter larger than the maximal one that suits you. Proper measuring will determine all three of these sizes, so you can use them as a guide when buying ball stretchers.

That being said, keep in mind that each person’s anatomy is different. There are no “standard scrotum sizes” to go for. It is also possible that your size will change depending on the circumstances, such as sexual arousal, temperature and stretching degree. Remember, scrotum becomes somewhat thinner when stretched, so men with low hangers will probably need smaller ball weights than the beginners. However, this is not a rule and all will depend on your individual anatomy.

Therefore, measuring for ball weights is more about determining a comfortable range of sizes rather than one specific size.

Measuring for Ball Stretchers: How To

Measuring yourself is not difficult, but you need to have some patience. In order to get the most accurate results, it is advisable to take several measurements, preferably at different times. Many men choose to perform measuring after a warm bath. You may also wish to try different “extremes”: when you are flaccid and when you are aroused, when it is hot and when it’s cold, etc. For each of these, perform several measurement and not the results. Discard any measurement that seems a bit “off” (too small or too large compared to other measurements). The average measurement of all will give you your ideal diameter for a ball stretcher.

To measure, you will need a flexible measuring tape you can easily wrap around your testicles. You should measure at the point just between the root of the penis and top of your testicles. If needed, pull your testicles down so you can wrap the measuring tape.

Once the tape is in place, make sure to wrap it tightly enough so your testicles cannot slip through. However, do not make it too tight or else it will be dangerous. When the tape is wrapped properly, mark the spot on the tape where it comes together. Make sure to mark it and not simply place your finger on it because you might move your hand, which can lead to wrong results.

When it’s marked, take the tape off and read the result. Note it: this is your circumference. This is NOT your diameter, nor the ball stretching size you need. However, this is the only thing you need to measure, so make sure to note your results on all repeated measurements.

The average result will give you the circumference. The next step is to convert this number into diameter, which is the base size of a ball stretcher you need. To get the diameter, simply divide your circumference by 3.14 (the rounded-up value of pi). The number you get this way is the base diameter.

In practice, however, this base diameter will be too large. If you buy a ball stretcher with this diameter, chances are that the testicles would slip through. In order to prevent this, it is best to order ball weights that are a bit smaller than the base diameter you get. For most men, this diameter should be about 20-25% smaller. In order to calculate the ball stretcher diameter to order, multiply your base diameter with 0.8 and 0.75. These numbers will give you the biggest (loosest) and smallest (tightest) ball stretcher diameter that will fit you.

However, keep in mind that these are just general indicators and all will depend on your individual anatomy. Some men, particularly those with large testicles, will find these numbers too tight. Some may find them too lose. When in doubt, go with general instructions and test a ball stretcher to see if it fits you. If it is too tight, order a bigger size. If it’s too loose, order a smaller size.

One thing to keep in mind when ordering ball stretchers: pay attention to measurements. Some ball stretcher sizes are marked in millimeters and some in inches. It is therefore important to know your diameter in both millimeters and inches and to pay attention to the measurements displayed in product description. This is the only way to ensure that you’re ordering a correct size.

Ordered a wrong size with us? No problem: just return your ball stretcher within 30 days and we will exchange it for the appropriately-sized one!

Measuring for Ball Stretcher Thickness

Another thing to keep in mind: ball stretchers do not vary only by diameter, but also width. There are very thin, ring-like ball weights, but also very thick, almost tube-like stretchers. Some stretchers are oval or come in other designs and shapes. You may wonder how to determine the ideal width for your needs.

While there is no one rule to follow, keep in mind that a comfortable width will depend on the distance between the base of your penis and the top of your testicles. Men with stretched balls can accommodate very thick ball weights, and they can even pile many ball stretchers on top of one another.

As a beginner, you should stick to thinner ball stretchers, the ones you can fit between your penis and testicles. In order to determine this size. Simply measure the distance between the base of your penis and the top of your testicles. Keep in mind that this distance will change and become bigger as your balls begin to stretch. Once you achieve those low hangers you will be able to wear any type of a stretcher you like. As a beginner, however, it is best to go with those ball stretchers you can comfortably fit between your penis and testicles.

What is the Ideal Ball Stretcher for Beginners?

Ball Stretcher for BeginnersThere are many people who want to engage in ball stretching but they don’t have enough experience to know how to start with the best possible product. In order to stretch your balls properly and to the greatest enjoyment, it is vital to choose an appropriate device. There are so many different ball weights and other ball stretching devices you can buy, so it’s not surprising that people are confused.

In your search for that ideal first ball stretcher it’s vital to know that everything is individual: what might be a great ball stretcher for you might not fit another person. This is why it’s impossible to recommend only one model of a ball stretcher as ideal for beginners who wish to try ball stretching for the first time.

At the same time, it is undeniable that some types of stretchers are simply better than the others, especially for beginners who wish to try stretching for the first time. These ball stretchers are highly recommended for beginners.

To ensure fur satisfaction and safety, it is best to go with metal ball stretchers. You may be surprised to hear this advice. You may think that leather ball stretchers are better for beginners, since they are softer and lighter. While it is true they are lighter they are often more difficult to put on and take off, and they are not so reliable when it comes to stretching and quality of results.

For these reasons, it is actually recommended to start with a metal ball stretcher, namely, a Surgical Steel ball weight. These stretchers are smooth and easy to use. You should start with a smaller and lighter metal model to ensure the best experience and results.

The good news is that you can find high-quality Surgical Steel stretchers that are not too pricey and not too heavy to be intense for beginners. These stretchers are comfortable and smooth so they are great for newbies. At the same time, they are also sturdy enough to provide good results and help your body get used to the feeling of ball stretching in a safe and effective way.

How to Choose a Good Stretcher?

An ideal first-time metal stretcher is the one that is simple in design, smooth and not too heavy. Also, it is important that it’s well-crafted to ensure the best results. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a beginner’s metal ball weight:

  • Choose a light stretcher. All metal ball weights are sturdy and somewhat heavy, but it’s best to choose a lighter model at first. You can always increase the weight and add more stretchers on top if needed, but wait until you are more experienced. Do not use an overly heavy and big stretcher at the beginning. At the same time, avoid stretchers that are overly thin, because they may be a bit uncomfortable.
  • Choose a smooth stretcher. Your metal ball stretcher should make a uniform oval or a circle when closed. Such stretchers typically open in two halves. They are completely smooth when closed, which provides a better experience, particularly for beginners who are still not used to the feeling of stretching. Such stretchers are more comfortable than the others, so they are ideal for first timers.
  • Choose a stretcher that’s easy to put on and take off. Most metal ball stretchers are easy to use, but when in doubt, go after the one that is easiest. It is the best way to go for beginners, since using ball weights require a bit of practice. This is why it’s important to use a stretcher that is very easy to use. It will help you get used to these devices without any problems.
  • Choose a simple stretcher. Go for a stretcher without additional features (such as hooks for ropes, spikes, etc.) Once you are more familiar with stretching you will be able to try more advanced models but it’s best to go after simple designs at first.

Donut-shaped ball stretchers are a good design for newbies. They are comfortable, easy to use and provide great results. They are not the only type of Surgical Steel stretchers you may try but are a good choice if you are unsure on which stretcher to choose.

Ball Stretcher for Beginners: Tips and Info

Here are some things to pay attention to when choosing your first metal ball stretcher. There is also a list of reasons why you should go with Surgical Steel stretchers above all others:

  • Metal ball stretchers are very effective. This is probably the most important reason why you should use them if you’re starting with stretching for the first time. If your dream is to have those impressive low hangers, it is best to start right and use metal ball stretchers. They are the only ones that can help you achieve effective results.
  • That being said, do not use the heaviest weights you can find. As a beginner, you should stick to simpler, lighter metal ball weights at first. Once you get used to the feeling and once you gain a bit of a stretch you can add more weight or try heavier stretchers.
  • Metal ball stretchers are comfortable. You may be surprised to hear this: after all, they are sturdy and heavy. Fear not: these stretchers are specially designed for comfort and a pain-free experience. In fact, they are often more comfortable than leather ball stretchers. You should not be intimidated by metal ball weights: just follow the instructions, use lube and you will discover that they are very comfortable to wear, even for prolonged periods of time.
  • There is a huge variety of metal ball stretchers. They come in many sizes, designs and weights. This means you will sure be able to find one that suits you perfectly. But it may also make it more complicated to choose the first one, since there are so many to choose from. If in doubt, always go or the simplest and most comfortable models until you are ready to try more intense ones.
  • Metal ball stretchers are easy to use. It is easy to put them on and take them off. They usually have screws or another mechanism to open the device, so it is very easy to put on and take off. This is another reason why they are so good for beginners.
  • Metal ball weights are specially designed for effective stretching, so they are of high-quality. Good craftsmanship and design also means better safety for you. This is why metal ball stretchers are the best way to go.
  • Surgical Steel ball weights may seem too extreme, but they are beginner-friendly. The only thing to keep in mind is not to go after the biggest and heaviest devices. Also, avoid those that are overly complicated or some with additions (hooks for ropes, spikes, etc.)
  • If you wish to hide your ball stretcher, it is very easy, since they can be safely worn under your clothes. Chances are that nobody will see your stretcher unless it’s too big or if you use multiple weights at once.
  • It is crucial to wear a correct size. Metal ball stretchers are useless if you don’t have the right size. If they are too big, they may fall off and if they are too tight it might cause problems with circulation. In order to ensure safety and satisfaction it is absolutely vital to wear only ball weights of the right size. The size you need is not always obvious and cannot be determined based on pictures – you will need to measure yourself. Luckily, the procedure is easy and there are many handy tips on how to measure yourself in order to get your proper size. It is important to measure yourself and determine the size you need before you choose your metal ball stretcher.
  • Stay away from poorly made products! They are unsafe and useless. It is always better to pay a bit more for a quality product. At the same time, you don’t have to pay a fortune for a quality stretcher. It is important to stick to reliable stores and you will be fine.

Piercing Blowout

Piercing BlowoutOne of the worst things that can happen to you when you try to stretch your piercing is blowout.

This is a relatively rare thing, but you need to know that it can happen.

That’s why it’s so important to go slowly when it comes to stretching and be very responsible in this aspect.

What is a Blowout?

A blowout can happen when a piercing is stretched too fast. It usually happens when your piercing is not ready but you force it to stretch anyway. Typically, it occurs when you force a taper or a jewelry piece through your piercing to stretch it to a larger gauge.

What happens is that a piercing that’s not ready gets hurt. The skin from the piercing gets forcibly pushed through the piercing and it exits on the back o the piercing hole. As a result, you get a flap of skin or tissue hanging from the back of the piercing. That is what is considered a blowout.

This happens when a skin tunnel (called fistula) is forced on the back of the piercing through the pressure applied. This is what creates a lip around the edge of your piercing. This blowout may be very small initially, but it may grow significantly, especially if you continue to stretch your piercing even further.

A blowout is a huge aesthetic problem, but it gets even worse than that. Once you get a blowout you won’t be able to stretch this piercing further and it might affect the piercing completely so you won’t be able to wear any jewelry anymore.

A blowout can also cause further medical issues, such as tingling and discomfort. In some cases it can even lead to an infection. It’s clear a blowout is a nasty problem you don’t want to have.

Luckily, there is a way to remedy this problem. However, it’s important not to freak out and to be patient.

How to Treat a Blowout

One of the first things you can do is to downsize your piercing. The easiest way to achieve this is by inserting smaller jewelry (jewelry of the smaller gauge). This can help the blowout tissue to get reabsorb into the body so the problem is remedied. It is vital to replace the jewelry straight away or else the stretched piercing will heal in this blown-out shape. Once it’s happen it will be very difficult to remedy the problem.

In addition to this, it’s vital to make the tissue heal the best you can in order to remedy the problem. Wash your hands carefully and make sure to use only sterilized jewelry for your blown-out piercing. Use gentle saline solution to soak your piercing with a blowout in order to make it heal. This is similar to usual piecing aftercare, but it’s worth to keep the saline solution for longer. Make sure to use a cup with a saline solution that is tall enough to cover all of your piercing (in the case of stretched earlobes, make sure that the cup covers your whole ear). This is a good way to make your tissue heal and remove the bad effects of a blowout. Just make sure to use a new plastic cup every time you apply the saline solution.

In addition to this, you should also use plenty of oils to massage into your ear. The best oils to use are vitamin E oil, jojoba oil, emu oil, caster oil, tea tree oil, olive oil and coconut oil. Use the oil of your choice about 2-3 times per day. Rub it gently on the blowout and massage it. It’s best to use it when the blowout is new and fresh, so it’s important to start doing that straight away.

While you’re doing this cleaning and rubbing the oil, make sure to observe your piercing to see how it’s doing. Notice the shape and size of the blowout and see if it’s getting better. It should show the signs of healing after several days. If it stays red and swollen or if it hurts, you should seek medical help.

Whatever you do, do not attempt to stretch your piercing again until your blowout is gone and your piercing is fully healed. It’s important to be patient. It will take about one month before you can attempt to stretch your piercing again.

Stretching with Tapers: Things to Consider

Economy Insertion Tapers

Economy Insertion Tapers

Stretching with tapers is a very common method for stretching your piercing. In fact, it is the most common method you can apply. Tapers are affordable and easy to use, so it’s not surprising many people decide to give it a go and use tapers to stretch their piercings.

Unfortunately, not everybody knows how to use tapers properly. It’s important to note that while tapers are very common and relatively easy to use, they are not always used in the optimal way. They may seem intuitive but there are also many mistakes you can make while trying to stretch your piercings using tapers.

In order to avoid all of these mistakes, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • To use this method properly, make sure to always insert the narrower end of the taper into the piercing first. This is your current gauge and the taper will gradually widen to the new, larger gauge. Never use a wide end of a taper first!
  • You need to go slowly and gently. Push the taper in until you reach the wider end. This should not be painful even though you may feel a bit of discomfort. When you reach the wider end, stop. Take your new jewelry and line it up with the wide end of the taper. Only then you should push the rest of the taper through your piercing. Make sure to keep the jewelry aligned with the wider end of the taper so you can push the new jewelry in, too.
  • Once you’re done you have stretched your piercing to a larger gauge. Make sure there’s no blood and no cuts or tears. If everything is fine, it means you’re done.
  • Tapers are specially designed for stretching and should not be worn as body jewelry. While they may look stylish and unique, keep in mind that they are not made to be worn as jewelry, especially not for a prolonged period of time. This is particularly true for acrylic tapers.
  • In order for this process to work, make sure to never skip gauges (sizes). It’s vital to go gauge by gauge. This is why it’s so important to use all of the tapers in a kit or to order individual tapers of all sizes, one by one.
  • When stretching, it’s important to be patient. Never stretch your piercing before you give it a time to heal after the previous stretching. You should never “jump” to stretch to yet a bigger size quickly.
  • Generally speaking, you should wait at least a few weeks before two sizes (gauges). It means that you need to use a new taper every several weeks or so (or once per month only, depending on your piercing and the way it heals).
  • In order to make the whole process smoother and easier, use a drop of lubricant. Apply lubricant to both your ear (or the body part where piercing is located) and the taper. In some cases you might even want to lubricate the jewelry.
  • Keep in mind that tapers are ideal for smaller gauges and this is where they work the best. “Smaller” here means anything under 00, which is still large enough for many people. However, if this is not what you want and if you wish to stretch to at even larger gauges it’s better to use a different method for more gradual and problem-free stretching.

Choosing a Taper

When choosing a taper, pay attention to:

  • Size to use. The size of the taper to use will directly depend on the gauge you have and the gauge you wish to achieve. Most piercings start at very small gauges (think 18 gauge or 16 gauge), so even stretching to 14 gauge requires a taper to be used. (Or another method, of course, but tapers seem to work the best). In order to use tapers properly, you need to know your current gauge at all times.
  • Material. Tapers come in many different materials. Acrylic tapers are flexible and comfortable, so they provide a better stretching experience. On the other hand, Surgical Steel tapers are more secure. They can be autoclaved, which makes them more body-friendly.
  • Shape. While tapers have a general shape there are certain variations between different designs. Some tapers have a special smooth finish to make stretching process more comfortable. Others offer a special way to connect jewelry to the taper securely and thus make the whole process easier. Other tapers are specially designed to slide in and out with least force. You need to know of different shapes and designs in order to be able to choose the best taper for yourself.

After Stretching

  • Always treat any stretched piercing as a new, fresh piercing. Guess what? This is exactly what a stretched piercing is. Luckily, the healing time for this sort of piercing is shorter than for the original piercing, but you should still treat it as a new piercing.
  • As a new piercings, newly stretched piercings require aftercare, at least in the first couple of days. Clean them twice per day with a saline solution or another appropriate product. Do not use harsh chemicals on your newly stretched piercings!
  • You may also try sea salt soaks to treat your newly stretched piercing.
  • If you notice any pain or discomfort after stretching, make sure to pay attention. In case of an infection or another problem, seek medical help. Stretched piercings typically do not cause so much trouble, but you need to be aware of the risks.

How to Stretch Urethra for the First Time

Stretch UrethraUrethral stimulation is still considered somewhat rare and almost taboo, so there is not enough information available to those who are interested in trying it for the first time. This lack of information can make the whole learning process more difficult, not to mention dangerous. So, how to stretch urethra safely?

Keep in mind: urethral stimulation is very exciting, arousing and rewarding, but it’s important to be informed about it in order to make the experience completely safe. For this reason, it is absolutely important to know how to approach urethral stimulation.

First things first: if you are interested in trying this type of stimulation, you will need to know how to stretch your urethra.

Why do you need stretching?

You might wonder if stretching your urethra is really necessary. After all, the urethral canal is already there and there are small urethral toys made for beginners, right? Well, you need to understand that an untrained urethra is typically very small and narrow. It makes inserting objects difficult or even uncomfortable.

For this reason, it is strongly advised to stretch your urethra before you truly start practicing urethral stimulation and using toys for pleasure. This stretching process, also known as “training” is a good way to get to know your body and understand how urethra should be treated. Training is also a perfect opportunity to find out what feels good and what you find pleasurable. So fear not: while urethral stretching and training can be a somewhat time-consuming process, it is also sexy and pleasurable, so chances are that you will enjoy every minute of it!

There are several things you can do to stretch your urethra, and some are better and safer than the others. Whatever you do, it’s important to be informed and to know the potential dangers that may arise. Urethral stretching is a very pleasurable activity but it’s not something you want to do without being informed about it!

Bad Ways – Do NOT Do This!

So, let’s discuss those good and bad ways to stretch your urethra. Let’s start with some very bad ideas, such as:

  • Inserting random objects into your urethra, “just to test the feeling”. Items such as pens or knitting needles should never go anywhere near your penis. It is dangerous to even think about it.
  • Inserting dirty fingers into your urethra. While using your pinky finger with lots of lube is not dangerous, it’s important that your hands are completely clean. Never insert anything into your urethra unless it’s properly cleaned!
  • Trying to insert something without lube. Proper lubrication is vital for a success! It is advisable to use lots of lube to help you out. Keep in mind that the lube you use has to be sterile.
  • Inserting unclean toys. Any toy you use should be properly sterilized and clean. The same goes for your hands or your partner’s hands – any body part that comes in contact with your penis or a toy has to be perfectly clean!
  • Using too large toys to stretch. You have to start small and build your way from there.
  • Using too small toys. Smaller toys are generally easier to insert but make sure they are not too small/narrow or there is a risk for them to scratch your urethra.
  • Forcing something down your urethral opening. You should never use force! The moment you feel pressure or any form of pain or discomfort, it’s a sign that you should stop.

Okay, so these are some of the bad ideas on how to stretch your urethra. Here are some better ideas on how to do it:

How to Stretch Properly

Before you start, you need to understand a few things about your urethra. It is a narrow opening so you need to proceed with caution. The tissue is very sensitive so it’s important to go slowly in order not to make any damage or cause any problems. Also, keep in mind that urethra is a bit sticky so it’s vital to use a lot of lube before you start.

Another thing you need to understand before you begin is that stretching your urethra is not a one time, quick deal. It is a process, so this is why it’s called “urethral training”. Be prepared to work slowly and invest some time into this. Chances are that you won’t be able to stretch properly in one go. That is okay. Just give your body enough time to get used to this new feeling. You can do it in several sessions. Give your body some rest (like a day or two) between sessions and then try again. Eventually, your body will get used to the feeling and the whole process will become easier.

So, here are some tips for the first timers:

  • Be patient and go slowly. This isn’t something you can do in a rush.
  • It’s best to use specialized training toys and urethral stretchers. These toys are specially designed for beginners who wish to try urethral stretching for the first time.
  • If you can’t get a specialized trainer toy, make sure to choose a urethral toy suitable for beginners. It should be smaller so it doesn’t go too deep into the urethra. Some people, however, prefer to start with the smallest urethral sounds available. This is also a valid option but make sure to never go too deep.
  • Before you use your toy, make sure to sterilize it. Needless to say, all body-friendly and safe urethral toys are made of surgical steel, so they can be sterilized. Boil the toy to sterilize it. Rubbing it with alcohol before you start is just not enough! Also, once the toy is sterilized make sure not to contaminate it. Use rubber gloves to hold it and don’t touch it with dirty fingers.
  • Keep in mind: any bacteria or dirt from the outside can come down to cause problems, such as urethral infections. This is why you need to be extra careful. Sterilize your toys. Wash your penis and your hands. Use rubber gloves if needed. This is something that requires a very clean environment.
  • Give yourself enough time. This is crucial. Urethral stretching is not something you can do in a rush.
  • Use plenty of lube. This is the only way to ensure comfort. Choose surgical lube or another type of sterile lube.
  • Start by slowly inserting the tip of your toy in your urethral opening. Hold your penis with one toy and gently insert the tip. If this is all you can do for the first session, don’t worry. It will get easier after several sessions.
  • Your body needs to get used to this new sensation, so don’t expect your training to be super-arousing at first. At the same time, it should not hurt or cause major discomfort. Pain is actually a big warning sign that you should stop!
  • If you manage to insert the tip of your toy without a problem, wait some time for your body to get used to the feeling, then try going a bit deeper. The goal is to make the toy slide inside – it should never be pushed or forced.
  • In order to make the process easier, it may be useful to hold the tip of you penis gently and to stretch the opening with one hand while sliding the toy with the other.
  • If it starts to feel a bit “dry” or sticky, take out the toy gently and add more lube before you try again.
  • Never try to go too deep, especially for your first time. You should train your urethra for stimulation and stretch it enough to be able to accept toys without a problem. The goal is to make your urethra wider, not to go as deep as you can. Deep urethral sounding is reserved for more experienced users.
  • It’s best if you are not erect the first time you try to insert the toy, but some people feel it’s better if they are erect. There is not a wrong way to go about this, unless the toy is curved, but these toys are not recommended for beginner users anyway, so you should not use them straight away. Experiment to see what feels best.
  • You might want to masturbate to see how it feels with the toy inside. This is a good way to see what feels pleasurable and what kind of stimulation you like. However, do not focus on masturbation or pleasure too much – your first goal is to stretch your urethra so it can accommodate toys. Therefore, focus on training your body to get used to this new feeling. There will be plenty of opportunity for arousal later.
  • On the other hand, if it feels really pleasurable, nothing prevents you from masturbating, but make sure to go slowly and gently!

What is important to note is that even though it looks like something more extreme, it doesn’t produce pain and discomfort. In fact, pain is a sign that you are not doing the stretching right.

The best way to describe the feeling of ball stretching is “pleasurable tingling”. You can expect to feel this tingling in your testicles when you wear ball weights or another type of ball stretching device.

Keep in mind: ball stretching should be fun!

How to Avoid Pain?

Here are some tips on how to avoid pain and discomfort during ball stretching:

  • Always use only specialized ball stretchers designed for this purpose. Never use random household devices or other objects to stretch your balls. Using random items and devices not designed for ball stretching is not only risky but can also cause pain and other problems.
  • Know your ball stretchers. The best way to start is with leather ball stretchers and weights. Leather stretchers are super comfortable and suitable for beginners who wish to try ball stretching for the first time. While these stretchers do not produce as effective results as metal ball stretchers they are still good enough to achieve some initial stretching and to make your body get used to the feeling of stretching.
  • To achieve true low hangers and to maximize the effect of ball stretching, it’s best to use metal ball stretchers. When choosing a metal ball stretcher make sure to go after high-quality devices that are specially designed to produce effective results without pain and discomfort.
  • Keep in mind: if it hurts, burns or causes major discomfort, you are not doing it right. If you experience any of these problems make sure to remove your ball stretcher immediately.
  • If you experience prolonged pain and discomfort it’s best to consult your doctor. This is the only way to make sure that everything is fine and under control.
  • A ball stretcher might pinch you a little or it may get caught between pubic hairs. This is not problematic but it may cause slight discomfort. To avoid this problem, you need to be extra careful when putting your ball weight and taking it off.
  • Make sure not to go too fast when stretching. You should not keep the ball stretcher on for too long. Another thing to keep in mind is that you should go slowly when increasing the weights and pressure. Do not start with many stretchers at once and do not add new weights before you are completely used to the feeling of ball stretching.
  • When adding new weights, always add only one at a time. You cannot put too much new pressure to your scrotum. If you put on many new weights at once it can lead to pain, discomfort and other problems, so make sure not to overstretch your scrotum with many weights at once.
  • In order to minimize pain and discomfort when stretching make sure to use enough lube. Shea butter and other similar lotions are great for ball stretching and should be used to avoid pain and discomfort.

Unwanted Stretching

Unwanted StretchingMany people wish to stretch their piercings. Stretching essentially makes the piercing hole bigger. In terms of body piercings, it means that the piercing is stretched to a larger gauge. Stretching will increase the diameter of the fistula, which means you will need to wear larger jewelry. In some cases, you will be able to wear special jewelry made for stretched piercings.

This tissue stretching is done for aesthetics and functional purposes. Some piercings are more prone to stretching and will stretch easily. For example, earlobes can easily be stretched so it’s one of the most popular stretched piercings.

However, stretching is not always done voluntarily and on purpose. It’s important to know that your piercing can be stretched even if you don’t want it to. In this situation, stretching is a problem you need to address and prevent.

What is Unwanted Stretching?

In order to understand how to prevent unwanted stretching, you need to know how stretching happens in the first place. The stretching increases the diameter of the fistula, making your piercing have a larger gauge. It also means that you will need to wear jewelry of a larger gauge to accommodate it.

Stretching is done on the tissue so it becomes elongated, making the piercing hole wider. Stretching will affect the piercing itself, as well as any surrounding tissue. In some cases, stretching can hurt the tissue and lead to damage, breakage and other problems. Even when done purposely stretching poses a risk. When it happens involuntarily it almost always leads to additional problems.

Piercings at Risk

The location and type of the piercing is very important for stretching. Some body parts will stretch more than the others, so this is where you can expect unwanted stretching to occur. Different tissue stretches at different rates so it will determine the ability of your piercing to stretch, whether you want it or not. As a general rule, some piercings can easily be stretched while others require a lot of effort to be stretched. It means that for some piercings unwanted stretching is always a possibility while you don’t have to worry about the others.

Piercings that are relatively easy to stretch are those that are typically stretched on purpose: earlobe, nipple piercing and genital piercings. Most of genital piercings are very prone to stretching. Also, surface piercings are often easy to stretch, which can lead to tissue damage since the piercing is done so close to the skin surface. Speaking of which, your navel piercing can easily be stretched even if you don’t want that to happen.

Dangers and Problems

One of the most common problems encountered with unwanted stretching is tissue damage. This is particularly problematic with piercings that are located very close to the edge of the skin. Stretching will pull on the skin, which can make the tissue become so thin that the blood has difficulty passing through it. This can lead to further problems. The tissue might die and split. Tearing of the tissue is another common problem with unwanted stretching. It’s not uncommon to encounter tissue damage, especially if you wear heavy, large jewelry.

People who wish to stretch their piercings know that it’s important to always go slowly. With unwanted stretching, the enlargement of fistula almost always occurs rapidly, which leads to tissue damage. In some cases, this damage is microscopic and will cause your piercing to hurt and become sore. In other cases, the damage is more permanent and serious.

How to Prevent Unwanted Stretching?

In order to prevent unwanted stretching, it’s vital to take a good care of your piercing. You need to keep it clean and prevent scratches, infections and other problems. However, the most important way to prevent the unwanted stretching is to choose appropriate jewelry. Your chosen jewelry should be well-crafted and made of body-friendly materials to prevent problems. Also, it has to be appropriately-sized. Jewelry that is too large and heavy will almost always cause the unwanted stretching.

You should always wear jewelry in the same gauge as your piercing. Never try to insert larger jewelry “just because”, because it can lead to stretching and tissue damage. Also, make sure not to wear jewelry that is too heavy if stretching is your concern. Weights and heavy jewelry are the easiest ways to stretch your piercing, so if this is something you want to avoid, make sure to always wear smaller and lighter jewelry pieces.

If you notice some unwanted stretching or if your piercing becomes sore, you may try rubbing it with a bit of oil and leaving it to close a bit. Good oils to use are Vitamin E, jojoba, extra virgin olive oil, avocado or emu oil. This should bring the piercing to its original size unless the stretching was too pronounced.
