What I Like and Don't Like About the PhalloSan Forte
What is the PhalloSan Forte?
The PhalloSan is a penis extender that consists of a few parts.
The first part grips onto your penis using a vacuum-based suction bell.
The next part consists of a foam loop similar to the PhalloGauge Model S penis extender that goes around the base of your penis shaft.
The last part is a belt that connects the foam loop and the gripping suction bell together.
PhalloSan Forte Parts
Let's go over the parts that the PhalloSan comes with.
- Foam Loop - This will go around the base of your penis, just against your pelvis. It's the anchor for the pulling force.
- White Elastic Belt - A pretty standard elastic belt that is adjustable in length, which also allows you to adjust how hard you're pulling on your penis.
- Suction Bell - A plastic chamber that holds the tip of your penis (your glans, a.k.a mushroom tip) using a light vacuum.
- Condom Sleeve - This condom sleeve comes in 3 different sizes (small, medium, and large), and is attached to the suction bell and your upper penis shaft.
- Mini Vacuum Plunger - This part resides on the top of the suction bell and you press it to create a suction force inside the Suction Bell.
- Mating Hooks - One hook is on the end of the White Elastic Belt and connects to the other hook connected to the Suction Bell.
- Baby Powder - This white powder which you can buy from any drugstore is necessary to add to your penis shaft to prevent tearing (and buying a replacement) of the condom sleeve when it is deployed.
How to Put on the PhalloSan Forte
The steps to put on the PhalloSan Forte are fairly numerous, but we will go into detail here.
Before you start, make sure that there's no hair on your penis shaft. This will make it easier to get the part known as the 'condom sleeve' to stay in place.
Ok, the first step is to put on the 'suction bell' and 'condom sleeve' combo.
When the product arrives at your doorstep, a condom sleeve (usually medium) is already installed on the suction bell.
If not, you're going to have to firmly, but carefully, remove the one on there and replace it with the large or small condom sleeve. Remember, you don't want to accidentlly rip the condom sleeve (a spare costs about) $26.90 + $12 shipping!
Once you picked the right condom sleeve, roll it up towards the suction bell, kind of like you're rolling up you shirt sleeves.
Next, pat your penis shaft with some baby powder. It also helps to get some baby powder on the condom sleeve as well. Remember, you have to use baby powder or else you risk ripping your condom sleeve (I can speak from personal experience).
Next, with your penis flaccid, not erect, stick your penis glans (penis tip) past the now-rolled-up condom sleeve and into the suction bell opening.
Now roll the condom sleeve back down onto your shaft.
Next, give the 'mini vacuum plunger' a few pumps to push the excess air out of the device. This secures your penis inside the 'suction bell' + 'condom sleeve' combo part.
Now rotate the mini vacuum plunger into the 'lock position' as indicated on the suction bell.
Next, place the 'foam loop' around the base of your penis.
Next, pull the belt around your waist and connect the 'mating hooks' of the belt and the suction belt together.
Now you're done! You can proceed to put on your underwear and pants and go about other activities.
One great thing about the PhalloSan is that it provides a nice, comfortable stretch throughout the day.
Because the stretch is to the side, you have a little bit more flexibility and opportunities to wear it during the day (compared to rod-based penis extenders).
The parts look nice. The foam loop and elastic belt are particularly nice as well.
Another great thing is that you can easily adjust the force in the belt by adjusting the buckle on the elastic belt. You can even adjust the force while you're wearing the device.
Cons and Disadvantages
One of the biggest cons is that is that it costs $339.00 plus $25 for shipping.
Another con is that the spare silicone sleeves cost $26.90 plus $12 for shipping.
Spare protector caps costs $24.90 plus $12 for shipping.
As you can see, you're going to be investing quite a bit if you choose to use a PhalloSan.
Cost put aside, let's consider some of the user-experience disadvantages.
The 3 condom sleeve sizes and how you might slip out of the suction bell
One problem that some guys may have trouble with is the ability to keep their penis fixed inside the suction bell.
That's not to say that everyone will have this problem, but from my personal experience, the vacuum would weaken over time while I worn the device, and eventually give.
The result is that the glans (mushroom tip) of my penis ends up inside the middle of the sleeve, not the the actual suction bell chamber.
The problem with this happening is that the actual force pulled on your penis changes and you're not getting the exact pull compared to when you originally put on the device.
Eventually, wear it for long enough after your glans has slipped from the suction bell to the middle of the sleeve, and your penis will slip out of the device all together.
Another potential problem is that the sleeves might not fit you (well). Remember, they have 3 sizes of condom sleeves (large, medium, and small). Unfortunately, the issue arises when the best fit is actually in between two of these sizes.
I remember when I was first starting out, the medium condom was too large for me (I kept slipping out), and the small condom was too tight (It kept choking out my penis).
Eventually after I gained some size, I was able to use the medium condom a bit more reliably.
Now again, some guys may not experience this problem - a medium-sized condom may end up being a perfect fit, so that's just a risk that you're going to have to take.
Another con with the PhalloSan Forte is that you cannot do a downwards stretch with the device.
Why would you want to do a downward stretch anyways?
If you tried to have the device pull downwards on your penis and tuck your penis between your legs, like in a homemade penis extender, you'll run into problems.
The problem is that the suction bell is way too big to fit between your legs. Maybe you can get it down there between your legs, but then your butt is going to be sitting on top of the suction bell all day - very uncomfortable, I tried it.
Additionally, this is not correct operation of the device, so not only are you not supposed to use the device like this, you can't even do it anyways.
You cannot wear the PhalloSan in public with all types of pants
This is not inherently a bad thing.
In fact, there's quite a few pants that you can wear with the PhalloSan penis extender.
The issue starts to arise when the pants become tighter and more fitted. These are pants like jeans (slim, skinny), and suit pants which are are tailored to fit you well.
When you try to wear these types of pants with the PhalloSan, the suction bell creates a bulge that is very visible through the pants. Again, not the best idea if you plan to go outside with this thing on.
However some pants that seem to work well with the PhalloSan are the looser ones. Sweat pants work well here.
Using the bathroom becomes even more of a chore
No, the PhalloSan doesn't affect your body's ability to use the bathroom, rather, it's the tasks that are required to take of the device (before doing your business) and putting it back on (after you've relieved yourself).
Think about what's going on when you're wearing the PhalloSan penis extender and then you have to use the bathroom.
You go to the bathroom, find a nice stall to get some privacy, and realize that you have to take off the device.
Ok, so you have to release the vacuum on the suction bell. Then you have to un-roll the condom and pop your penis out of that mechanism. Once that's done, you can put that part off to the side, say on the toilet paper dispenser. Defintely don't want that dropping into the toilet!
Next you have to take off the belt and foam loop. This part is actually not that bad.
Once you have the penis extender off and placed to the side, you can do your 'business'.
Once finished actually using the bathroom, you can proceed to put the device back on. This involves doing the whole process in reverse, all over again.
So if you have trouble getting the PhalloSan to stay on - that is, if you're one to commonly experience suction problems and slippage, then, you're going to have a bad time. Not just once, but everytime you have to use the bathroom!
Quite frankly, since the PhalloSan consists of a long assembly process (at least 1.5 minutes, requires baby powder), you'll find the process tedious and the is one of the biggest factors that causes guys to "fall off" and give up on penis enlargement.
The Vacuum Suction Bell Does Not Provide Any Additional Size Gains
This is the biggest misconception with the PhalloSan penis extender.
Some people like to believe that the prescense of the vacuum bell increases their length gains.
However, this couldn't be further from the truth because there's actual data comparing a rod-based extender and the PhalloSan extender.
Let's compare the results of both types of penis extenders.
One rod-based extender, the Sizegenetics, showed an average length increase of 0.7 inches over the course of 6 months.
The PhalloSan's clinical study also reported an average length increase of 0.7 inches over 6 months of usage.
Clearly, there is no benefit to wearing the PhalloSan if you're expecting to get more results, or even faster results.
Again, this all goes back to the principles of hyperplasia and penis stretching - All you need to do is apply a stretching force for long periods of time (approx. 4-6 hours each day). Adding a vacuum bell will not change this scientific fact.
To conclude, the PhalloSan is a good penis extender to use if you're looking for something to work.
However, the price is a little hard to justify - $339 + $25 already takes you to spending $364 right off the bat.
You also need to consider some of the requirements that come with using this device, and ask yourself if it's worth it:
- Need to pat your penis and the condom sleeve with baby powder everytime you use it.
- Extensive put-on and removing procedure (roll back condom, apply baby powder, fit penis in, roll foward condom, put on belt)
- Cannot wear in public with all types of pants - this is dependent on your lifestyle of course.
Now, some may not even consider these cons, but just be wary because if you find this too tedious, your PhalloSan is just going to end up collecting dust = $364 wasted.
If you're looking for a cheaper (about 1/3 of the price of a PhalloSan), more user-friendly alternative, consider checking out the PhalloGauge penis extender device.
