  • Recently started wearing skin cone

    Hello, I'm new here and recently came across foreskin restoration while researching ways to increase sensitivity. I can't feel much during sex and haven't been able to orgasm with intercourse (only rigorous hand jobs). For the past several months I've only been using a fleshlight to masturbate, thinking I was putting on too much pressure and speed. That hasn't really helped my issue though.

    Before starting a multi-year restoration process, I wanted to try the skin cone as a test to see if I would gain much sensitivity. So far after a month of wearing it 24/7 I've noticed very little improvement and still have the dry, cracked appearance on my glans. My skin seems slightly more purple colored though. Sometimes I use Gold Bond lotion before putting the cone on. I'm about a CI-3 when flaccid and know I need to restore the foreskin, but I want to make sure it's going to ultimately help gain sensitivity before starting down that long road.

    Is there anything else I can be using to help speed up the dekeratinization? Is 1 month too early for any noticeable results? Thanks!

    How old are you? Difficulty ejaculating can be a function of age.

    I'm 65 and also have this problem intermittently. Usually no problem getting it up BUT sometimes have difficulty cumming via normal vaginal intercourse. Need to position myself and thrust to cause greater felt contact internally w/my glans and along the shaft along the vaginal walls. But, sometimes nothing works and we have to resort to masturbation.

    At one time, I thought this was due to my restoration and relatively thick foreskin. I do not "blame" my restoration for this "problem" any longer. However, if you seek to restore your foreskin in order to gain sensitivity, that may not be a solution either.

      Thanks for your reply. I'm actually only 31, so it wouldn't be an age issue with me. I just don't have enough feeling or sensation to climax with intercourse. I require more force, like with a hand, to get the job done. I've been doing kegels for a couple months so I'm good there. I don't seem to have a problem getting an erection, though I can lose it during sex sometimes since I'm not feeling much. So far the only reason I can think of for my problem is keratinization. I hoping when my glans isn't all cracked and dry and has a moist shine to it my sensitivity will be normal. I'm just not sure if wearing the skin cone alone is enough for me.

        I'll add my take on this by asking, how much old inner mucosa do you have? That's the lighter colored tissue from your sulcus (the area just behind your corona) back to the scar line on your shaft. Some guys have almost none of this tissue, and some guys have more. The reason I ask is because it was this tissue which become MUCH more sensitive with coverage, and when that began to happen, the corona itself became more sensitive, and eventually the glans became as sensitive as it probably would've ever been. Glans tissue isn't all that sensitive to begin with, so you won't see a dramatic change with that area.

        I know you're asking how long this takes. One month usually is not enough to see much of anything. For me it happened slowly, over many months. In fact there wasn't a dramatic change, just gradual, so there was never one big dramatic day . But it did happen, and it deepened over time, and it started with the old inner mucosa.

        How long it will take for you, no one knows. You'll just have to hang in there and go on covering to see what happens. It isn't just the build up of keratin which affects all this, it's also (the prevailing theory) your brain's growing ability to re interpret the sensation from these areas. Your brain has a huge area for sensation reception. Give it time. This is why some of us say, "restoration" involves restoring a lot more than beginners realize.

          Well, I'm not sure how to measure how much mucosa I have, but I'm a CI-3 flaccid and am able to wear the skin cone without too much problem if that's any indication. So, it sounds like this process is different for everyone but I'll likely need a few months. I've read where some recommend using AHA lotion/cream to help with the process. I'm wondering if I should just go ahead and start restoring or wait and see if being covered with the cone helps much.

            It's simple. Everything from your scar line to your glans is inner mucosa as is the "skin" covering your glans. The inner mucosal shaft tissue is what is most sensitive and what we are growing as well as outer skin. Hopefully you have at least 1" of inner mucosa.

              I'm a proponent of letting dekeratinization happen on its own, so my suggestion is to do just that, and not try to force it with some substance. But that's your choice. The ideal coverage is with skin, but it's slow. I'm assuming you are pulling shaft skin forward and putting the cone over that. Just go on doing that, and with time it will happen.

              This whole thing ("restoration") happens on a long timeframe, years actually, so if you decide that's you, then you might as well get used to it; used to just doing something each day towards a distant goal, day after day, month after month. Truth be told, that's how anything worth doing happens; from building muscle tissue, to developing various skills. Nobody wants to hear that, especially in modern culture, but there ain't no way around it. So if you want it, you do it.

                Okay, so I probably have about an inch of mucosa. If the mucosa is the most sensitive and that's being grown with restoration, it appears just wearing the cone isn't going to give nearly the same benefit as growing the new skin. If I want maximum sensitivity to return it seems like I need to restore.

                Yes, I'm pulling the skin forward and bunching it up inside the cone. It sounds like quite a daunting task if it's going to take years, but I'm willing to do it. Once I get to the amount of coverage I want and stop restoring, I assume it's permanent right?

                  Yep, it's permanent. All the skin you grow is made of added, living and dividing, basal layer skin cells, in addition to the new underlying connective tissue in which very small blood vessels grow to supply the tissues above. Keep in mind, you need at least twice the distance from your scar line to the end of your glans, plus a little more, in order to have full flaccid coverage. The temporary skin tube we make by rolling the added skin down, is made from one layer of shaft skin doubled over. So you can begin to see why it takes years to complete.

                  But here's the thing: your new, added skin will cover the sensitive areas much sooner than it will take to grow all that tissue, so you can begin to experience increased sensitivity before you reach the goal of full flaccid coverage. With, say, half of that amount, or even less, the skin tube you roll down will stay there a good part of the time if you retain it forward, using your cone, or just tighter underwear as examples. So that tunnel has sunshine in the middle of it.

                  And, I wouldn't call this process daunting. Boring is a lot closer to it . Just make whatever you're doing a part of your day, each and every day, without worrying about it. It will happen in its own time. It would be daunting only if you think that you have to obsess over each detail. but you don't. You only have to apply the cycles of tension in some way, and your skin does all the rest.

                  This is a promise from us, and guaranteed by the built-in response of your tissues. There are milestones along the way which will give you renewed reward...........and then it gets boring again. Just endure, keep at it. You will truly appreciate yourself one day for having started, endured, and completed something that will give you more reward than you even know about now.

                    I'm glad to hear it would be permanent! That's a lot of new skin to create, so I'm amazed this is actually doable. I'll take boring over daunting for sure haha. Seeing progress along the way would definitely be a morale booster.

                    As far as actually doing the restoration, I've read about using the TLC-X. I also read about doing PE and restoration at the same time with the VLC-X and was wondering if that would be advisable or not. Thanks for all the help and info!

                      I've been "covering" when not tugging for a bit over a month now I think, the cone all day, then a ManHood at night. I notice a difference - sensitivity on the ridge of my head that wasn't there before, and wider orgasms, if that makes sense. Hope that keeps getting better, but even this little improvement give a bit of a push to keep going.

                        I'm very much like you bluestealth. I can't feel much during intercourse and I have trouble reaching orgasm. It is very frustrating and it affects my relationships. This is the main reason I started restoring 1,5 years ago. But I started with CI-1 and only a quarter of an inch of inner skin! You are extremely lucky to start at CI-3 and with a full inch of inner skin.

                        I just reached CI-3 stage myself. I haven't felt any radical benefits from restoring yet, but I am hoping that my sensitivity will start to increase at CI-4 when my inner skin and corona will be covered. I already have much more mobility in my shaft skin, which has made masturbation somewhat easier. I haven't been able to retain 24/7 so far. I can get the skin cone on, but any heavy activity involving crouching is likely to knock it loose.
