I just read an article in a magazine that said you could use hair bands or elastic bands to put round the base of your penis and testicles while masturbating, and this increases the pleasure. Won't this damage them?
Dear Nick - Oh, dear. There are items that can be purchase in adult book stores that you can use to apply pressure the the nerves and veins that run along the base of the penis. By applying pressure in this way, by encircling the penis and testicles, you are able to trap the blood flow to the piece and increase the "hardness" of the erection. Whether this increases the pleasure factor, I don't know. Be very careful, however, using hair band or elastic bands. These can get caught in pubic hair and pretty painful to take off.
firstly, it wont harm unless you leave it a 30 minutes with blood flow stopped, and there is a band sold purely for the penis, and that doesnt catch on pubes, or cut of circulation, but does stop you from pre coming, it halts the process, as can a woman, it acts as a stop cap, making masturbation or any form of sexual happenings with the penis last longer, thus increases pleasure
I'd personally prefer to use something designed for the purpose. Presuming you're not 18, they're difficult to come by. Some even have two rings fused together so you can put one around testicles where they meet the body and one around penis shaft.
At any rate, a fluffy hair elastic is better than a rubber band, and anything so tight that it is painful is too tight.
