VED Constriction Rings

Postby stils73 » Sun Dec 04, 2022 9:22 pm

I haven't seen much about this topic, although with all the content in the forum it's very likely I'm just overlooking it...but here goes

I use the Vacurect VED for sex. Not all the time but once or twice a week. My wife likes the anticipation of it and likes to pump it herself. Obviously no argument here.

The pump came with 6 constriction rings. I started at the largest (1 1/8) and have slowly worked to the 3rd size down from there. I am pretty girthy and have to lube up afterwards to get the ring off. Even with this ring I get noticeable leakage shortly after removing the pump for sex. The most obvious reason, I assume, is that the ring is still too large and is allowing the leakage. I'm just apprehensive about continuing to drop down in sizes because I'm having a tough time getting the current size off after sex. There are still 3 smaller options.

My main question...is there a size that will allow me to maintain the full erection I get with the pump or should I expect to always have some leakage regardless of the ring size? I'm willing to drop down another size to see if I get the desired result but I don't want to do any damage, or waste time trying to achieve a result that isn't achievable.

Any help or input would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

Stills, does the current ring your using work sometimes, or does it always fail to maintain an adequate erection? I was just wondering if your arousal level had anything to do with it? What is your girth, and what size ring are you currently using? That being said, I've see on here where some guys have to use two rings at once to maintain their erection for PIV sex. I personally have used the Blue Ultimate Round Rings (https://www.reachmedical.com/blue-ultim ... echnology/), the ears make removing them easier, what you use is up to you, just giving you a visual on the differences in mine. Sometimes I don't need the VED, or rings at all, sometimes I need to use the VED with the #7 and that works great, but occasionally I will need to use the smaller #6 to maintain hardness. So you see it can vary, and yes it can be pretty snug and harder to remove it, but that's what it takes. I believe my arousal level, coupled with the slightest distractions, can effect the whole process. I would say experiment with the smaller size if/when needed, just don't leave it on longer than 30 minutes (I personally won't go over 25), you don't want to cause further damage to yourself. Good luck.

I have the vacuerect also. I use a couple different sizes at times. I’m 6” in girth. I can use the L size to keep a erection but if I don’t have constant stimulation it will
Go down. I use a size 3 and a 4 most of the time both will keep a erection but 4 gets me rock hard. I tried some smaller sizes but hurts to bad. I was stupid and bought the deluxe kit that has 10 rings. You would have to have a real small girth for the smaller rings, I can’t use them
I do like the rings they are thicker and stronger than some other rings I’ve used. You lube when you pump? You said you had to lube to get it off so was wondering if you pumped dry. Being that they are thicker and stronger when you use a smaller one to keep a erection it can hurt to try and get it off. After you cum and start going down some. One thing I do is get a couple fingers between the ring and your dick. Then pull out to stretch the ring enough to pull off easier. Even though they are round with a flat area I don’t have much luck pulling on the flats on each side and getting them off.

In my experience, it took a great deal of time and cost experimenting with different ring manufacturers and with different combinations of rings
2 Osbon rings were what worked. For me at least, it seems any combination of high tension or standard tension medium or large works well as long as there are 2 rings used.

Plenty of lube helps removing them afterwards. A good close shave means no foliage is ripped out by the roots when the rings are removed.

Girth is 6" natural. Larger when pumping but haven't measured to see how much larger. Arousal isn't an issue. I also take a 5mg Cialis daily and a 100mg Sildenafil prior to sex. I'm currently using the size 2 ring provided by Vacurect. All the rings I've used have all had the same result which leads me to believe that I need to drop down another size or two.

I do lube when I pump. To get the ring off I lube again, pull it to the side and squeeze my shaft a few times to force the blood back out. You said you use a size 3 and 4. I assume you don't mean at the same time, so why the 2 different sizes? Sounds like size 4 gives you what you want?

I use the Osbon bands, the have “ears” that allow you to pull the ring out slightly so you can force your fingers under the ring so you can use more force to remove the ring.

I also use 2 Osbon Rings. I think I'm of average size but had to experiment my way down to the smallest sizes to get results. I am using a pink size D and a gray size D loaded on the VED together with the pink loaded last. I was very apprehensive about using rings that were that small, but it turned out that removal was not a problem. I found, by trial and error, that the Osbon Erecaid rings worked best for me. I initially used them by stretching them on a Vacurect VED, but decided to go full Osbon Erecaid because of the ease of ring loader. When finished with penetrative intercourse, I apply lube and water and stretch out the rings by the ears one at a time and allow the veins to let the blood out. I then pull the ears on both rings together and slide them towards the head and then remove them one at a time. I've only had one ring break in a year and it was while loading. Good idea to have spares on hand in case. The Osbon ring loader works great as long as you apply lube to it and the rings. Also, apply lube to yourself prior to pumping and watch the clock - don't exceed the 30 minutes. If you're concerned about experimenting with smaller rings - keep a scissors handy.

I use just one at a time.They both give me a erection that holds. The smaller one gets me harder. Just like to change things up. It takes some experimenting to find the ones that will keep a erection and get you the hardness you want. I tried one of the smaller rings and it hurt bad. Couldn’t wear it and very hard to remove after erection. It just takes playing around with the different sizes to find the right one. One thing I’ve found the tighter the ring the harder the erection but it constricts shooting cum. So for JO I like it to be not as tight with constant stimulation i stay hard and still squirt good.

I have also had good luck just using 1 Osbon, removing the pump, then adding another ring by folding the ears of the "working" one inside the cylinder and pumping to desired stiffness then adding the 2nd ring. This method takes a bit longer than loading 2 at once.
