Penile Compression Devices

A penile compression device (commonly called a clamp) is a small reusable device that is available in several different designs. They all work by compressing or squeezing the penis, either by acting as a clamp that is closed over the penis, as a strap that goes around the penis or occasionally an inflatable cuff.
