  • Am I too old to start?

    Hi. I'm 71 years old and have always wanted my penis to have foreskin. Am I too old to start restoring? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    I would say you are not too old. I found significant benefits even early in my restoration, so no matter when you start, you have a good chance to be better off.

      How old were you when you started?

        I was 58 when I started tugging. I am 70 now. During the 11+ years of diligent tugging with various devices I have achieved complete flaccid coverage and on my way to erect coverage. The erect coverage is helped by the lessening of my erect tumescence as I have aged. It is worth starting a restoration programme at any stage in your life because a number of benefits can be achieved quite quickly, long before you have grown enough skin to keep your glans covered.

          I don't think anyone is "too old" to start foreskin restoration but you need to bear in mind that doing so is a VERY LONG process.

          It will take years. Some men have said they've gotten full coverage in just a few years (which is highly unlikely). More commonly, in order to get such coverage, you need to restore for as long as Woody did -- 10 years or more.

          FYI, I'm 66. I started in my late 30's/early 40's and restored "on and off" for over 30 years. I went from no foreskin to over 60% coverage while flaccid (called CI-6). I actually have enough skin to entirely cover the head of m penis but it will not stay there but it is enough to give me the "gliding" action while makes the feeling of sexual intercourse and masturbation much more enjoyable.

          The long time that it took for me to achieve my level of restoration is due mainly to not doing it consistently. However, I also believe it is due in part to the nature of my skin which is/was very resistant to restoration -- very thick and elastic. I believe that men with thinner and less elastic skin have seen results much more quickly than I have.

          You won't know how receptive your skin will be to restoration until you try it. If that's something you want, give it a go. Good luck!

            You were born with foreskin, get back what they stole from you. Go to your grave hooded like you were suppose too. I've been restoring for 10 years almost and the results are amazing, I got back the beautiful foreskin I was born with. It's fun to restore at any age and the results are totally worth it.

              Age is only part of the equation and not the most important factor. If you are interested in restoration and are willing to make the daily commitment you have already answered your own question. Get going, quit wasting time, it is never too late to start on this or anything you really want to achieve. Once you start, your results will provide you with plenty of positive reinforcement and will keep you motivated. It sure did for me.

                In a message to the old restore-list in 2003, Wayne Griffiths wrote:
                "Over the last 14 years of NORM, we have had old as 73. The mid range seems to be in the 30's and 40's."

                I, myself, was once told that the oldest man who ever attended a NORM-Los Angeles meeting was 85.

                During the early 2000’s, Roy Payne, a white American professor working in Japan, posted a restoration diary with photos to the web. I think he was in his 60’s at the time. His restoration was not progressing the fastest, but he and his wife felt the difference. A photo of him, his wife, and their toy dog together was heartwarming. His restoration diary was also the first to address the problem of ever increasing tugging-induced swelling in the foreskin, and how the swelling went down when you achieved your goal and you ceased tugging.

                When doing anything biological, it's best to have youth on your side. I always heard that men in their twenties can have a restoration that goes twice as fast. I was finally convinced of this when I witnessed a young attendee at NORM meetings do exactly that.

                However, I'm surprised by how well older men progress, sometimes outpacing men in their 30's or 40's. The older restorers may do better simply because they are more likely to stick with the tugging regimen.

                But I think the older men also have a biological advantage of sorts. As we age, our tissues have a tendency (1) to lose their elasticity and (2) to become dehydrated at times. Because of these factors, cells are more likely to be pulled apart within the tissues by tension. When the cells are pulled apart, this gives opportunity for nearby cells to fill the spaces created with new cells generated through cell division. The addition of cells is what gives our foreskins true permanent growth. It’s been my observation that older restorers benefit most from methods that utilize higher tensions.

                I hope you restore, jerrywantsskin, and that you are able to tell this forum of your success. You have the opportunity to make a valuable contribution to our movement.

                Whenever a man shows a casual interest in restoring, I tell him to first try the simplest of methods - cross-taping - for starters. After a mere three days of continuous cross-taping, I felt a noticeable jump in the sensitivity of my frenulum remnant. That’s what convinced me to commit to restoring and to move on to faster methods.

                I declared myself finished restoring with 3/4 erect coverage (CI-8.5) in 2005. I primarily used T-tape, strapping up and around my waist.
                I've participated in NORM meetings in San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle (RECAP), and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

                Every doubt, reservation, or concern I had about my restoration was resolved by achieving additional foreskin LENGTH.....So just KOT !

                  Thanks so much for your support. Actually I've been restoring now for about 5 weeks and I'm starting to get a lot of skin that bunches up behind the corona when I'm flaccid. I guess that I'm pretty fortunate because I think when I started I was between a CI-2 and CI-3

                    No you are not to old. I started when I was 68, fully covered now working on finishing a taper/ You will kick yourself later when you realize that you cloths no longer cause discomfort. And sex feels again.

                      I am 73 and have restarted the process to continue with the lengthening of my foreskin. Was not circ'd, ever, but want more overhang, just because I can. Bucket list thing. (along with having sex with an 18 year old). LOL Why not start? just don't hurt yourself. I had done like 3 years of stretching around 2003, but got away from it for some reason. Wish I had continued, I would be where I want to be now. So, go for it.
