  • Once restored

    Ive began using the tlc x about a month ago. I find it works better and better as time goes on. My question is once restored. As in full coverage when flaccid, does the skin stay forward over the glans like a intact penis. Or do you need to use a retaining method to keep the skin rolled over and not bunched behind the glans. I know some parts are lost during circumcision like parts of frenulum and rigidband.

    Hi there.

    Short answer: Yes.

    Long answer: It takes a lot of time and dedication. Because the specialized structures like the frenulum and the ridged band which keep the foreskin forward have been removed, you may have to grow even more skin than an intact person to achieve the same result.

    A lot of restorers here use the coverage index (CI) or real coverage index (RCI) as a sort of objective judge of their foreskin's physical appearance.

    CI-7 and RCI-6 (to the best of my knowledge) are the stages that you're referring to where the foreskin stays forward without a retaining device. This stage in restoration is often a primary goal for restorers.

      IMO, It all depends on the type of foreskin and "equipment" you have.

      If you are a show-er with a relatively long flaccid penis and relatively thin and less elastic skin, you can expect get full coverage with overhang without too much difficulty. If you are a grow-er (like me) with very thick and elastic skin, you can grow enough foreskin to extend well past the tip of your glans, but it will not stay there because of the elasticity of the skin which makes it want to pull back and it will take much longer to grow enough skin to actually achieve full coverage 24/7.

      I'm at CI-6/7 with 50-67% coverage most of the time and 100% coverage sometimes when flaccid and am still shooting for CI-7/8 with full coverage all of the time after many years of tugging but have read stories of men who achieved full coverage (Ron is one of them) much more quickly than I could have ever hoped.

        As something to keep in mind, one trick to retaining in the meantime is to wear tighter underwear. This kept my shaft skin over the glans tip most of the time; much more than 80% of the time, let's say. So this is a painless way of retaining and it worked (still does) even when I wore them when running (under running shorts). Rarely slipped over the years.

        What new folks have to remember is that your penis isn't a static thing that just lies there, especially when you exercise. As the blood flow to your muscles increases, the flow to your penis decreases, and your penis shrinks, so if you have even half of the amount you need for so-called flaccid coverage, tighter underwear will keep it forward.

        Now if Alice Eve sits down next to you, all bets are off................

          Im defiantly a grower. Flaccid around 2 inch. Erect around 7. During exercise sometimes the skin will roll over and stay until I'm done with full coverage. I do wear tight boxer briefs. Same thing I wore before I started restoring a month ago

            I'm about 2" flaccid and 6" erect. I almost always wear UnderArmor compression shorts, which (when I've not Tugging) keeps 100% of my penis inside my body (which is in effect 100% coverage) but the moment I remove the pants, my penis pops out and is usually static at around 50-67% coverage.

            BTW, to give others an idea of how thick, elastic and strong my foreskin is, I can easily wear a 22 oz (1 3/8 lb) PUD taped to the tip of my foreskin ALL DAY w/o any discomfort. I can also add a 2 lb weight attached w/a ball strap to the PUD (for a total of 3 3/8 lbs) and can handle that weight easily as well for many hours w/o any pain or discomfort, but I only do that at home because of how awkward it is to walk around w/a 2" diameter (2#) spherical weight hanging between my legs (as it is now).

              You will need more skin than a comparable man that has all the penile structures intact. The rough guesstimate to achieve reliable flaccid coverage is about 200% Forced Erect Coverage, although this will vary from man to man.

                I agree with the others, you need a lot more skin then if you had the full foreskin, I myself am intact and lengthening as I said on the older forum, and the only reason I don't have full coverage all the time is lack of the needed outer skin, BUT even with less outer skin then needed, my ridged band often gives me full flaccid coverage, though not for long, so I'd imagine with out the structures it would take more skin, or if you somehow tightened your foreskin near the end, though i doubt that would be really safe..

                  That's neat to know, 200% FEC is a great goal to work towards. I find that it's kind of nice sometimes to have a specific objective target in mind, helps with motivation.

                    No problem. That 200% FEC estimate is from Ron - not from personal experience of mine. My husband, who is uncut, has a 190% FEC (yes, we measured it) and he has reliable flaccid and erect coverage (CI-9). But he has all the penile anatomical structures intact.
