After not having an erection for 2 years after RP, I decided to try this product. To my surprise with just 4 or 5 pumps I was fully erect. just had to use trial and error to find proper ring size.

Good job!. Now, use it everyday...not for sex, but just for therapy. So, instead of putting on the ring just pump it up and down several times. You'll be back to your old self in no time.

Thanks Jeff and Paul for the encouragement. The only problem I sometimes have is when my scrotum is close up to my body, it gets sucked up into the tube. I will have to try a body shield especially with cold weather coming. anybody had experience with these?

Re the scrotum sucking up, I ordered a sillicon sleeve which does the trick.
The only problem is you cant get the ring on after...
If you want the shop details I'll dig the details out.

Wundering, about the scrotum and pump:

.... with a pump you absolutely, positively, always must hang on to your scrotum almost the whole time while you are pumping. If not it'll get tucked in there for sure.

This is one reason why I recommend the Encore battery powered model. You can run the pump with one hand (and steady the tube with same hand) and use the other hand for Scrotal Duties. But
if the tissue and other jewels get in where they should not, just back down the vacuum and stretch em out and try again.

I have never had to use any protective sleeve devices (although some guys swear by them and I suppose they might keep other stray tissues from stretching into the vacuum).
