Cold season stretching - Heat Pads Etc.

Postby tundraman » October 23rd, 2012, 2:45 pm

The correct temperature for a full stretch is needed. Warm enough for a full stretch, but not so much that your testes shrink. Big issue here with only one teste but also applies to guys with one smaller or higher than the other.
Here, with my heat pad on it's lowest setting, temperature is just right - until my heat seeking dog crawls under my kilt onto the heating pad, adding her body heat and I forget to turn the pad off. I shrank in less than an hour and had to drop 2 mm in ring ID as I shrank and the ring was doing the compression job on me. In a few hours when it cools and "reinflates" I will switch back to my normal bottom ring.

This overheating is also evident in hot tubs, some saunas and really hot days.

There is a fluid balance going on that is being stressed by the weights. The shrinkage would happen much slower without the weights, but it will happen. I tested this out weightless on myself. Am guessing to reduce surface area and thus heat transfer in - making it easier for blood flow to remove the heat. Your body does everything it does for a reason. - Better at body temperature than even warmer I guess. :roll:

I'm very fond of the "Eneloop Kairo hand warmer":
- doesn't overheat
- rechargeable batteries
- fits within the well-known sock solution
- at least 4h of comfortable heat

(Tip: don't use the old model, which can get too hot, use the new model)

That looks real neat! Is it the rectangular one the one you use or the egg shaped one?

Have noticed in the humid heat of the Houston area ( even on the 24th of December), I must unsock the hang in the afternoon or shrink. I didn't bring the 2 smallest ID 30mm WMCs. Even though I like swinging weightless, I prefer it with a full sized egg to swing - not a prune. :lol: Guess sweat dosent work so well in the wet climates and my teste gets too hot and commences to shrink up. Even the hottest days in dry Albuquerque, I can get away with socking all day. Thinking the sock and sweat make a swamp cooler for my hang and it cools before getting to the shrink stage.

I've long worn a sock with a plastic sandwich bag under the sock. Simple, cheap and easy. I just cut the bag in half, put the closed end on my balls and slip the sock over it. To try it, just put your hand in a sandwich bag and you'll see how well it works.

I use ankle wool socks in size small and run it up the inside and out the outside of the weights and works very well until gets very cold

Is the Cold season going to end. 0 c tonight and fulling they say it could get down to -9 c where is spring i need the warm sun to help my hang socks work but i just want to get the air to my balls they been under wraps to long and are ask is it warm yet and flying north as i jump out of bed in the morning still the sock makes it look as if i have more than i have ;) it does make people stop and look sometime i feel like saying want to see it better come look. But us north brits know how to behave when out. You give them a good look at the public toilet. May have got a newbie guy about 45 like the look and was going to look the site up. So will have to see. Seen him about town a few times so may meet up and see his jewels with a ring. Told him to take it slow and don't push it if in pain off it comes. Will low hangs get into ever day life just think the postman binman your GP the Cops all wearing ring and having fun. Just hoping the posties remember in summer when wearing there short old dears don't want to see a free ball hang. BUT I WOULD :twisted: I would ask hows it doing and give the site to them. Plus i would ask if he had time for a bit of low hanging fun ;) .

We are having the same issue in the southern US 3-4 days of spring then 3-4 days of late winter. 10 day forecast is more of the same and I have 3 new light weight kilts coming in the post. I did add a 15 to my 30mm yesterday. But will probably take it off about saturday when we head for freezing again.

This has probably been addressed already, butt for any weather when back indoors, after stretching for any length of time I usually fill a wide mouth jar/tube with warm water (as warm/hot) as possible and soak until there's a good hang, usually 10-20 minutes.

Recently been stretching for 'length' rather than just for 'fun'. In an attempt to apply heat, I remembered I had some 'hand warmers' I used when skiing, and still had a few left over from last season. I've been using "Warm Buddies 'N Pals", but just ordered the following:

Heat Packs 7+ Hour Hand Warmer (40 Pair Warmers)
Price: $10.93 (reg@ $36.00)
7 + hours of continuous heat; hand warmers can be saved for later use after activation
Package includes 40 pairs of hand warmers that will last up to three years unopened
Average temperature of hand warmers is a safe and comfortable 122 degrees (F)
