Hi James, I made a comment Sept. 3rd. If it is cold where you are you know that your scrotum gets very tight. I have the same belt and I know what you mean. When tight like that there is no room for the very constricted skin. There is almost no give to the skin at that point the ring will be very tight on that skin. Being almost solid the ring will bite almost like it is against a bone, that will burn. Talk to Joe I think a larger C, ring will take cars of the problem, it did for me. I love the belt. Hope you get it right.
