  • Why do you do it, and stuff I wanna say

    So to start with the questions
    Why do you restore?
    Personally I think I would be able to live with the physical effects of my circumcision, The thing that really pushes me to do it would be the fact that I'm really having issues with just the fact that I was cut and it was against my will. It's a real big problem for me sometimes, thinking about my circumcision, but restoring is what makes me feel better, cause I can at least feel like I'm doing something about it.

    How long was it before you noticed a difference?
    Some people here say they noticed a difference within a month, others say a week. It'd be great if I had a present for myself come Christmas.

    Otherwise some stuff I want to say cause there isn't anybody I know that I would be comfortable with telling, at least until I have experienced some really good progress:
    Sometimes I can kinda push the head of my penis in and have the skin go over the corona a little bit, and it's weird to say to people (which is why I'm writing here), but it's just so cool and I'm happy with it!
    And to share a goal with you guys cause y'all are so great:
    I think my final goal would be to have full flaccid coverage. At the moment though, I hope by Christmas I can push some of the skin comfortably over the glans while erect like some of the loosely cut guys can. Maybe it's too lofty of a goal cause I was cut at a C0 or C1. Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    You could see and experience some quick gains as the shaft skin seems to relax and loosen in response to the first weeks of a tugging routine. This happened to me and it was very encouraging, but also quite daunting at the same time when I realised (through knowledge gained on this forum) that real skin growth via cell division was a much slower process. However, at around two years in, the increased mobility of my shaft skin and the gradual addition of new skin allowed me to keep my glans forceably covered using an O ring when I was not actually tugging. By keeping it constantly covered, improvements in the texture and sensitivity of my glans were very quickly apparent and In my opinion the dekeratinising process is the biggest single early gain that can contribute huge amounts of pleasure visually and sensually. Stay dedicated and just accept the improvements as they happen. A photo diary is your best encouragement as you can actually see changes over time which you would not otherwise notice.

      I started restoring because I felt like I had to try it. I can't really say a reason other than that, for starting. I happened upon a site that talked about restoration and was captivated.

      But as I restored and saw what a difference it has made to my sexual feeling and function, that became a big part of why I restore. As a circumcised man, who was circumcised at birth, I had no reference for understanding what I was missing. It is huge and multifaceted. Not to mention how much better it feels and can be enjoyed by my wife. Huge.

      I began noticing a difference within months. Not big dramatic changes, just positive changes. In fact, my wife was the first to make a comment after intercourse, that things were feeling different, a lot better, surprised her and she commented out of the blue. All we could think of was a little extra skin and wow.

      Regards

        I was cut as an adult in my 30s. I started restoring a little over 3 yrs ago after seeing Ron on Howard Sterns show while watching old re runs. This prompted me to research restoration and circumcision EXTENSIVELY. The stuff i learned was mind blowing. I learned stuff about the foreskin i didnt even know, and i was intact for 32 years! If i had known then what i know now, i would never have done it. In fact i would be so bold as to say i now know more about the foreskin than the bastard doctors that practice that barbaric procedure. The doctors flat out deceive and lie about circumcision. The other thing about my restoration is that it has made me a staunch intactivist. I cannot believe this shit still goes on in this day and age. That is why i am restoring.

          I started initially as a response to the pain and grief of loss. I struggled to keep woth it because so much emotion was tied to the act of restoring. Eventually I forgave and moved on and healed quite a bit emotionally. Then I started restoring because my glans was sensitive and I hated the sensation of clothes rubbing against it.

          The new sensations and experiences come regularly. First the increased sensitivity. Then the excitement of feeling your own skin getting hit by your pee stream, followed shortly by the inevitable pee balloon fun. Then full flaccid coverage. These milestones are extremely motivating.

          Keep on tugging! I've seen the most rapid progress in my life by consistently tugging exclusively with manual method 3. I've got full flaccid coverage and I'm working toward erect full coverage with decent overhang! I'll get there and so can you!

            Yeah, i remember the ballooning. Way cool. Also it can be used as a cleaning technique when you dont have access to bathing facilities. Its called the pee bomb! European militaries teach this as a field cleaning technique. The US tries to bully intact service men into getting cut. Go figure.

              You've asked the perennial restoration newbie question: how long does it take to see some results. This gets asked by many people. But you've asked it with an assumption, ie that it will take weeks or months. You've set your question within the short span of of 4 months. It won't be that short. It will take years. Year after year, to see something significant. You'll have to be able to handle this kind of time frame. Not everybody can. You'll see all sorts of claims on this and any other forum. But they aren't true. So seeing something "by Christmas"? Sorry, no chance in hell.

              As WoodyHoody wisely says, the initial effects of temporary "stretch" are deceptive. It can be daunting to find out that this process takes so long, after being deceived by any apparent changes. BUT....... think about it, he had the courage to hang in there, so now he knows the wonderful benefits that come from enduring. If you can just accept the real facts and just endure as he has, you will too. The first benefit of restoring is endurance.

              My info:

              I stumbled onto restoration on the internet, roughly around the mid to late 90s. I saw a lot of nonsense written about restoration, so initially I walked away. I became interested when I read posts from a guy who, I could tell, knew the truth about skin expansion. He knew about the physiology involved; he knew how it was done in the clinical setting, and seemed to have a better than average knowledge base, from a scientific viewpoint. He said he first heard about tugging from one of his patients (this guy was in healthcare although he never explained what his role was exactly). I liked the way he presented information. He was a hard-ass with the forum bullshitters, but below the surface he was playful with it too, which I found interesting, and a few times kinda entertaining.

              So....I tried tugging around '99, 2000. Like so many others I bought several devices, but soon found that I had more comfort and luck with one I made myself, and eventually I used a modified manual method. Took me about 10 years to finish. But I saw, and felt, very real and impressive results years before that. So there are perks to inspire you to keep tugging. Changes are gradual, no doubt, but real. It's slow, but this thing really works.

              You don't get your original "foreskin" back, that's gone, but you get much more than you were left with, as results from tugging. THIS is the important message with restoration.

              I know what can be achieved, and I know how it was done physiologically. The guy who I first read, so many years ago, is no longer posting on forums, but I post, (for now, anyhow). I do it so there is counterpoint to the bad information; the myth and mistakes that never seem to quite die on forums.

              Enjoy this forum. It has the least amount of bad information that I've experienced, and I've seen a lot of it over the years. Ask questions when they come up.

              Good luck.

                Yes, I do. I'm too physically active during the majority of my day to wear a device.

                Thanks for the answers guys.

                  I restore because I'd like to have sensitivity in my shaft when I'm older. It's not because I'm angry at the doctors that circumcised me or because I feel like I lost something. Sure, having a foreskin in the past was pretty amazing (I was cut at 16), but at this point I'm doing it for myself and for my future well being. I'd like to have a working unit for the rest of my life, and I realized that the only way to avoid malfunctions is to restore earlier than later.

                  It was probably a month or two before I really began to see a difference. It's easy to get overexcited and to make early claims about the progress of your restoration. I think if anybody is confused on whether there IS a difference, they should take off their device and just walk around without it for a while. If your shaft gets irritated, you're making progress.

                    I think there needs to be a definition of terms here. Otherwise I wouldn't know what to say about this, because if you mean actual "shaft" sensitivity, referring to the part of the shaft covered by shaft skin, then you misunderstand what happens when you tug. You will never increase sensitivity on your "shaft" (as you've said) because shaft skin doesn't have the kind of nerve endings under it that produce high level sensation.

                    So in the interests of defining terms, did you mean your old inner foreskin, the skin from your sulcus to your scar line? That is the tissue which you can get some sensitivity from, after it's been covered for awhile. For many of us, this tissue doesn't cover most of the shaft, though, just the forward portion of the whole thing. The rest, from your scar back to your balls and beyond (why do I hear Buzz's voice) is shaft skin; dull, never-been-very-sensitive, will-never-be-sensitive shaft skin.

                      I didn't mean to imply that tugging causes your sensitivity to come back. Overall coverage should help out just fine.

                      It was my understanding that dekeratinization played a role in restoration? Is that not what happens on the shaft itself (causing an increase of sensitivity in the process)? Do you mean that the sensitivity comes back between the scar line and below the shaft instead? Maybe I had a misunderstanding. Clarification is appreciated.

                        The tissue from just behind the head of your penis, to the scar line, can become more sensitive, when it is covered. And as I've already said, the skin from the scar line to your scrotum will never increase in sensitivity. It wasn't very sensitive before, and it will always stay that way.

                        The problem we're having is the word "shaft". The shaft is the structure under the skin we tug on. The length of your penis from just behind the head all the way back to your belly is the "shaft". The "shaft" never gets more sensitive. Only the tissue covering the end-part of it can get more sensitive, because that end-part (from the rear of the glans to the scar line) has the right nerve endings.

                          Alright I see what the problem is. My understanding was that the word "shaft" meant only the tip of the penis. Upon further investigations, you are completely right sir. In that case, I mean to say that I am trying to recover sensitivity between my glans and the scar line. Does this make more sense?

                          Do you think that the glans of the penis will become more sensitive than the area below the glans down to the scar line?

                            Uh...............ok, I hold a license which encourages the holder to live up to the service of knowledge, so one last serve across the internet:

                            Yes, the area between the glans, including the corona portion of the glans, will become much more sensitive with coverage and time. The glans itself isn't formally recognized as having the capacity to become more sensitive. It doesn't have the nerve ending associated with pleasure. That was Cold and Taylor's opinion, anyhow.

                            However, some some of us who've finished have noticed an increase in sensation in the glans as well, after coverage. Good news. Some of the finished guys here can describe their experience with this.

                            You have to realize that penile pleasure is actually an interplay between the old inner mucosa (area between the glans and the scar line), and ALL the other areas of the penis, and yes, even the shaft skin. Thinking that only one part of the penis creates all the pleasure is wrong. Some areas are more immediately sensitive, and other areas play their part too, by joining in towards orgasm. A person on the old forum likened this to a symphony, with all its individual instruments combining and working up to a crescendo.

                            So tug, and cover.

                            Ok, now...............................I've lived up to my license (against my better judgement), so................I'm out.
