Thing is, assuming you are in the right spot like you apparently were at 1st, once he has winced, it is all over with. The needle is past the skin, and that is by far the most painful part. So, again if you are pretty confident about
the needle placement, maybe just go ahead an inject? Probably the needle will(or should be) be all the way in, with skin very close to the hub(where the metal part of the needle meets the plastic part), although depending on length of the needle and hubby's thickness there might be a little bit of metal needle not buried. If you are in where you are supposed to be, it should inject with about
the same amount of force required as when you are injecting out into the air(IOW, very little force), so you can take a syringe, fill with water, leave the needle on of course, and practice to see how that feels as far as the required force/pressure(don't reuse on hubby of course). If it is harder(i.e. takes more force/pressure) to inject hubby than to inject out into the air, then you are in the wrong place and it probably won't work. Plus, if you see a bit of blood in the tip of the syringe, or of you are able to aspirate blood into the syringe(but you might pull it out trying to aspirate) that is a good sign. The spot you are wanting to inject(cavernosa) has dark venous blood in it, and it will fill up with even more blood once you correctly inject.
If you can find some sort of local anesthetic for the skin, that might be a good idea. Just be sure to clean off the skin well with alcohol after applying the anesthetic, immediately/last step before injecting. Good luck!
