Two month progress report for restoring foreskin
I just finished up my second month of tugging. I have been manually tugging about 1 to 2 hours a day. I tug when I take a shower, when I read the paper, go to the bathroom, and any other time when I am not using my hands for anything and I have some privacy. I tug for about 1 to 10 seconds, relax, tug for 1-10 seconds, relax, and repeat for between 1 and 30 minutes. My preferred method of manual tugging is Method 2 - circle the shaft with my thumb and index finger of each hand and move the hands apart. I am getting so much slack skin that I have to tug my skin in two sections. My inner foreskin is not growing as fast as the outer, so I am starting to concentrate on the inner skin.
At week eight I started trying out my TLC-X and my DTR. I started slow with little tension and for about 1/2 hour at a time. By the end of the second month I was using the devices about 2 hours a day, plus still doing my 1 to 2 hours of manual tugging a day. I am slowly increasing the tension and time of the devices.
My progress is very visible. I see and feel more slack skin week to week. I am definitely a CI-3 now. My skin bunches a lot next to my corona, which sticks out almost a 1/4 inch from my shaft. I get spontaneous coverage of about 1/2 of my glans - initially after working out but now whenever I am not retaining and wearing briefs. I never had this before! :) I wear briefs and I am starting to notice that the new skin rides up over my corona and covers about half my glans. When I am erect and if I keep the skin of my scrotum from being pulled up, I can slide just a little bit of slack skin over the corona. I could not do this before, either.
I have been avoiding trying to regain sensitivity until I have some reliable coverage. Because my skin is now bunching behind the corona, my inner foreskin is protected and beginning to get more sensitive and has a slightly tacky texture. My glans is still keratinized and not sensitive at all except for the dorsal portion of my corona, which is still purplish.
I started retaining when not tugging two days ago. I use both a baby bottle nipple and the Your-Skin Cone. When I am not wearing a retainer, I notice that I am getting more spontaneous coverage. I wear briefs and I think the material pressing my penis against my body forces the skin to cover my glans.
My circ scar seems to be what is keeping me from getting coverage more often. When the skin is bunched behind the corona, the circ scar is the folding point and it sticks out.
I can now masturbate by sliding my slack skin over my shaft and having my hand either bump into my corona or push my bunched skin against the corona. That is definitely a difference that I appreciate.
