  • happy new years, 9 months of restoration.

    Hello everyone, I am glad to see this site back up again. Maybe the wait and change will help sepparate the non-restorers from the commited ones.

    I started restoring on march eighth 2015, soon after finding out that I was circumcised for no good reason. Ever since I was a small child I hated the way my glans was exposed and I asssumed that my remaining inner foreskin was all just one big scar. It did not bother me because I had assumed that I was cut for religious reasons, though that turned out to be very false.

    I have had fairly good results using manual tugging averaging less than an hour a day. I did both inner and outer skin evenly until I got to about 75% FEC (from a less than 20% painfull FEC).
    About 3 months ago I switched to focusing on my inner skin and only tugging outer for a few minutes. I did this because I realized exactly how much "a little flap of skin was" I figured out that when stretched my skin was 2.25 times longer than when it was relaxed, that means I need to grow 23 mm of skin to gain 5 mm of coverage (folded over foreskin).
    I decided that I wanted to shoot for the moon and end up with full erect coverage, essentially I want to be able to go throughout my everyday life and not have my glans touch air unless I should decide to retract.
    I therefore came to the conclusion that I needed at a minimum of 80 mm of (stretched length) inner skin, and the outer skin to match it. With that in mind I have realized that I endeavor to more than triple the remaining skin that I had.
    I had less than an inch (25 mm) of inner skin average length before I started, now I am up to 40 mm all around.
    I beleive that if I tug just right I can get more than 2 mm of growth every month, and so I hope to be done with manual tugging my inner foreskin by january 2018. After that I may try a device.

    I am pleased with the progress I have made so far, though not much visual difference can be seen, I can feel and enjoy the increased mobile and rolling skin.
    I have decided to not retain untill at the very least I can get over 200% FEC to accommodate erections. I did retain for a few weeks and it felt great, I even swear I almost started to achieve a full body orgasm but I could not get quite there. I saw that my glans were smoother and everything that was kept internal became a more natrual color and much more sensitive. Sadly, it became obvious that until I can stay covered 24/7, I would not make any more progress.

    I am to the point where I only get partial coverage when cold and sitting down, and it never stays while I am standing up. I expect it to stay this way until I grow much more skin.
    I also have just enough skin to have an erection without involving any scrotal skin, but if I hold down my scrotal skin I loose most mobility. I want to be able to have full covereage during erections without using scrotal skin at all, which is going to take an estimated grand total of over 350 mm of outer (stretched length) skin.
    This is going to be an ongoing project for a while but I am commited.

    Hi, happy new year, and welcome to the new forum.

    It's good to see what your progress has been for these 9 months. I hope you'll stay committed until you reach your restoration goal.

    I was also reluctant to start retaining until I had a reliable coverage, but the truth is that I ended up retaining much sooner. The moment was when I was finally able to have a nocturnal erection with the retainer on and not wake up in pain/discomfort due to the excessive tension. That was probably at FEC=110~120%, not much more. I haven't stopped retaining since then (while I'm not tugging), and I sill have a long way to go until I reach 200% FEC. I use the TLC-X retainer cone.

    I think you can make a good progress anyway if you both tug and retain. This way you won't revert what you have achieved so far in terms of sensitivity and natural color.

    Oh man, please participate in this poll. You'll see it's a common target for many restorers.

    Keep on tugging!
    From Madrid, Spain. Restoring with T-Tape, Manual, TLC & TLC-X since Jan 2014. Started as a CI-2, currently between CI-4 and CI-5 depending on the day.

      Thanks for the reply.
      It is good to know that about retaining, I need a lot more coverage though. Maybe I will start retaining when I have more than enough inner skin so I don't take up any outer skin. If I try to retain right now the o-ring is resting just barely above the skin that would normally be at the base of my shaft.

        Congratulations on the progress. I am at about the same FEC as you at this point and I find retaining, even overnight with erections, to be no problem with a Your Skin Cone. Of course you should test any overnight retaining method during the daytime with a full erection to make sure it won't cause any pain or discomfort, but once you get into the territory where you can cover a full erection when forced, there's no reason not to, IMO.
