Wow 9 days in the loris #9 had to take it off swelling of the epidimas both sides, I was able to put the ring on by putting one ball and my penis through and then pushing the other ball through, thats how its supposed to be to get it off I had to pull my penis out then force one ball out. this ring around every thing is a problem for me it is always causing pain, the cage doesnt cause any problem and it fits very well no room for erection at all. it quashes erections with out causing any problems, I can pee ok and it isnt cutting off circulation the tube is good. The G_d D#^#D ring Is a problem Cant go tighter and cant go looser because it has to hold the unit up, if it rides on the piercing it hurts like He_ _ It weighs 9 OZ. I dont know how you guys can take that ring.your bodys must be diferent then mine.
