In the last update I covered the possible benefits of using a pump with a stretcher in my 6 month, mid-year update.
Now that the challenge has officially passed the halfway-point, it's time to ramp things up. While it'd be easy to think it's all downhill from here, it really isn't - there's still plenty left to do.
- Got back into stretching
- More uniform girth
- The little red dots visited again
This month I was able to break the dry spell and get back into using the Phallosan. Not much use, but it was something.
I got in plenty of pumping, taking less days off, which resulted in a good number of tiny red dots on my shaft - known as hematomas. These cleared up within a day, as I've somewhat gotten to become a pro in treating them.
One of the more interesting observations, which I saw earlier in this challenge, was that parts that were smaller in girth - like the base of the shaft and tip - are continuing to catch up to the thickness of my mid-shaft, and as a result there is much more uniformity in the shape of my penis.

Up and Onward
With 1 broken sleeve and the other stretched out, I was forced to give the medium sleeves a go.
In reflection, using the pump before wearing the phallosan was the only reason I needed to wear a large sleeve.
The bathmate super-inflated my size, putting me in a weight class above my own.
I used the Hydromax Xtreme pump before wearing the phallosan because I believed it would improve my results. This could be true, but the downside is you wear them out quicker.
Of the 2 large sleeves I had, 1 broke and the other stretched out. Fortunately, the easy solution is to wear the phallosan before pumping.
I'm ok with this, as I've already dropped a good chunk of money into this challenge, and buying more sleeves isn't something I want to do right now.
My order came with bonus sleeves because there was a promotion going on. Most orders do come with less. You can see how many, and if they are running a promotion on their website.
The final measurements were taken Oct 31st, and compared to September’s final measurements.
- Erection Length: no increase
- Erection Girth: no increase
While I could have literally coughed and kegeled my way into getting the extra tiny speck of distance needed to reach the .125" gain I almost registered in both girth and length, I didn't.
This challenge is all about hard gains, and crossing the lines, not barely touching them.
- Kegels: 1000/1000 (+0)
- Morning Wood: 15/31 mornings
I haven't had much trouble doing kegels, and the results have been well worth the 10 minutes it takes to knock out 4 sets of 25 kegels, 10 days a month. That's nothing! Stronger orgasms, better control... there's really nothing bad to say about this simple exercise.

Ways to Improve?
Remember when I said there is still plenty left to do? One of those things happens to be testing this App that lets you track your stretching progress.
I'm definitely going to give it a go and will report back next month how it went.
To me it looks like an easy way to stay motivated to use the device more, but that all depends on how intent I am on adding my phone into the mix of my routine.
I guess we'll see in next month's update!
Till then, happy pumping.
