18 Month progress report for restoring foreskin
It is hard for me to believe, but I have been tugging my foreskin for 18 months. When I started tugging, I thought I would be done by now. I have come a long way, but I still have a bunch more skin to grow.
When I started tugging, my shaft skin was tight when I was erect. My glans and shaft were the same color as the skin on the rest of my body.
Now, 18 months later, I look down and I don't recognize that thing hanging between my legs. It does not look like the dick I had a year and a half ago. Not only are my glans and inner foreskin remnant a nice pink color, they are also smooth and glossy. Even when I am flaccid, my glans normally is smooth and shiny.
Along with the change in appearance is a change in how my penis feels. Before restoring I had very little sensation down there. When my wife asked me why I wanted to restore, my answer was to smack my dick with a ruler, just like a Catholic nun would rap a student's knuckles with a ruler. My wife jumped at the sharp crack of the ruler against my glans. I could barely feel it. Eighteen months later, there is no way that I would repeat that demonstration.
Not only is my penis much more sensitive, but the gliding of my glans inside my skin tube is fantastic. My wife loves the way my foreskin feels inside her. We don't need lube like we used to. Also, she says that she does not get sore like she used to. Foreskin restoration has been a win-win for both of us.
With all these benefits from foreskin restoration, I could stop restoring my foreskin and be happy.
I have full coverage when flaccid almost all the time. Daytime erections require me to adjust things down there and that is OK. I still need to wear a retainer at night. My foreskin retracts with nocturnal erections. Having my newly sensitive glans touching the sheets usually wakes me. I could live with this if I had to.
After eighteen months of restoring, tugging has become such a habit that I don't even think about it. I just do it. Standing in the shower I often realize that I am using method 2 to tug. Before I put my retainer on at night, I automatically tug for a minute or two. It does not feel right if I miss one of my regular tugging sessions. Tugging is just something I do.
Another reason I do not plan on stopping just yet is that I want more inner foreskin. I started restoring with about 1 inch (25mm) of inner foreskin. After 18 months of tugging I have about 1-5/8 inch (40mm) of inner foreskin. That is enough to cover about 1/3 to 1/2 of my glans. That is not enough. I want my inner foreskin to cover my glans.
So, I guess I will keep on tugging!
