I can't see when there would be anytime that a stick to that area that didn't yield 'good wood' as successful.
Also, depends on the whittler if its a stick or a good piece of wood, I suppose.
Ed C.: a thought. Given the large amounts of Trimix you need, relative to the rest of our experience, I wonder if I might make a suggestion to help possibly reduce the amount of Trimix needed, and also reduce the risk of a 4 plus hour erection?
My own experience first. I found that it would take a large amount of Bimix- up to .5ml to get much erection, even then it failed some of the time. I also was having to use .3ml or more of Trimix to acheive anything useful. The problem for me, I think, is the valves didn't close to hold the drug in the cavities and thus let the tissues adsorb it, rather it ran out of the penis before proper adsorption. I started using a pre-plump technique. I would use a pump to pump up just a little bit, enough to get the cavities
opened some, then apply a penis ring. I then injected the Trimix or Bimix, I could easily tell if I had made a good stick and there would be less resistance when the nedle passed into the cavitiy. I gently massaged the penis for 3 mintues or so, letting the drugs which was captured in the cavities to adsorb into the tissue. Upon removing the ring, the penis would lie there a minutes or so, then begin getting erect easily and fairly quickly. Using this method, I reduced the amount of Trimix needed (and the accompanying ache) from .3ml to .06ml. This is something you might consider, given that it seems the drugs is not adsorbing but rather running out of the penis. This method is especially useful for guys with unresponsive or slender or small penis types, as this allows the cavernous cavities to expand and allows the needle to inject the drug properly and directly into the cavity, one that may be flat and not expanded otherwise. I believe this little trick would work for any size or shape, as it's purpose is to use the least amount of drugs to the most amount of benefit, and the less drugs we inject into our penis, the less chance of long term problems we might create there. Something to consider..
