Hope this doesn't sound too moany, but I'm a bit dejected with my first goes at the Penomet. I've jelq'd and used the Bathmate X-40 for awhile now, but I got fluid retention problems and it didn't seem to be working. I got the middle package for the Penomet, and I've tried both the blue and black gaiters, none to any avail.
Thing is, I can't get any seal or suction on the Penomet, not even for 10 seconds. I'm fairly lean and have got a bit of a bush (I trim, but not all the way down), but that wasn't a problem with the Bathmate. I used to have the same problem with the Bathmate, but solved it by aligning the top of my shaft with the near wall of the tube (if that makes any sense). This doesn't seem to work with the Penomet. I'm a pretty small guy (6.5 x 5.5) so maybe the bigger tube of the Penomet is the problem?
I've tried the blue and black gaiters about 20 times in the past 2 days, but nothing seems to work. Anyone have any similar experiences and ideas as to what worked for them?
