Hello everyone, sure looks like a very knowledgeable community here to learn along with. I'm ready to get myself a Bathmate X30, been reading up on it quite a bit discovering what's best, and considering a few accessories as well to enhance the experience. One item I saw mentioned in an old thread was using a pump donut ring seal over the gaiter to improve sealing and comfort as well as avoiding pubic discomfort when pumping . Also helps avoid getting the boys drawn in OUCH! I do understand the comfort seal is included, but inside diameter might allow your nuts to be pulled in under suction. Is it OK to use a silicon pump seal donut with the Bathmate? Or does another material work best? Is there any compatibility issue between silicone and the gaiter material? My concern is that the silicone might react or cause the gaiter rubber to degrade or soften and ruin it. With the large cost of the Bathmate, I for sure don't want to screw it up and damage it. I know from past experience that silicone toys must be kept apart when storing or they can melt each other, and silicone lube can damage them as well. Weird isn't it?! How large is the outside diameter of the gaiter on the X30? I see the sealing rings come in a few sizes, and there's some universal ones. Want to get a decent one which will last a while. The better-looking silicone ones are around $10-11 each. I'll be taking it slow and easy, and I think this might prevent frustration with keeping a snug seal so you don't have to jam it down hard to pump out the water . The Vac U Vin pump mod looks awesome too and would be another great finishing touch to build more vacuum as I progress further. Looking forward to happy gains!

Silicone seals sounds good! To my understanding the BM gaiter isn't made of silicone so using a silicone sleeve shouldn't degrade the gaiter.

Overall, just cleaning your unit after a workout makes your BM last a long time.
I can't recall the outside diameter but I do recommend purchasing a big sleeve .

Vacu-Vin is a great modification! Just hold on for a while before getting it, it's best to build yourself up to a certain "grade" and then upgrade.

Welcome to MOS. The BM is a great piece of equipment to have. I started with the X30 and had to move up to the X40. I have not read the post you are referring to on the silicone donut sleeve but I can tell you that I started out using the "comfort pad " that came with my BM but I ditched it pretty quickly. From my experience it was better without it and was more comfortable. It was also easier to get a seal with the BM and held better if you start doing BM stretches . You are right about the balls getting sucked in and it is no fun. Had that happen once and I would not care to do it again. One thing i have found that helps is using a cock ring or something similar to keep your balls back and out of the way. I read that idea here but can't remember what post it was. There is a ton of information here on the forum and the brothers here are always glad to help if you have questions

If you are bothered about your balls joining the party, you can tie it with a shoe lace.

Thanks very much, good to know. Another member suggested something like an OxBalls silicone ball stretcher to keep the boys in check, but WOW, looked through their site and it's like walking thru a Bass Pro Shop ! Too much candy and what to choose?! You could spend way too much time/money, but a number of items look like fun and that would be practical. Just not sure which would work right for me. My package rides kind of high/snug at this point, so something too tight/extreme would probably not be fun/comfortable/practical. What do you suggest that would be a good choice?

Before that I would start to train using the Testical Health and Massage found in SRT. This is a very powerful exercise that allows the balls and penis to hang lower and heavier. It is very quick and easy to stretch this area as you are only dealing with skin. Worth a try before buying something.

Testicle massage and shoe lace for the win.

OK, I will begin with that, will read up on it to see how to do it. I suppose it might help to warm the area first, I have a buckwheat sock that you microwave for muscle heating. Should help relax everything so stretching will be easier.
I may get a cock ring or silicone ring sized to give me a snug encirclement. I think I can measure with a zip tie or paper strip.

Go with a silicone or rubber ring. You can buy "O" rings at HomeDepot in the plumbing section for like $3 for a pack of 20.
