  • Retaining at night with o-rings – for intermediate to advanced restorers only

    Retaining at night extends your restoration day. By wearing an o-ring at night, the eventual nocturnal erections will be doing the tugging for you while you sleep. The o-ring will pull your outer skin as your penis engorges with blood, keeping your foreskin stretched for as long as your erection lasts.

    However, a few things should be considered before attempting to wear an o-ring at night. First, you mush have the skin to do so. I recommend waiting until you are a CI-4+ or 5 before you give this a try. Second, your foreskin must be used to wearing o-rings comfortably throughout the day. Third, you must do an “erection test” when awake while wearing a ring, to make sure your skin is able to keep the ring on while erect.

    What’s an erection test? You put on an o-ring, watch some porn, and without stroking, let your erection happen, and see if the ring stays put, or if it gets pushed off by your growing penis. If you do an erection test with a ring on once a week, and if you keep a well orchestrated tugging regiment, you will notice that the ring takes longer and longer to come off your penis. Eventually, it will reach a point in which the ring clings for dear life to your foreskin, while you cannot get any harder. Once you reach this stage, give yourself another month, then it will be safe to sleep with an o-ring at night.

    At first, several things will happen. For the first month, your ring will come off while you sleep. This happens because nocturnal erections tend to be “harder” than erections when awake, pushing the ring off your penis. If this happens, just put the ring back on.

    Once the o-ring stays put for sure, you will also experience mild edema, or swelling, at the tip of the foreskin when you wake up in the morning. This is normal. Just press the swelling all around, remove the ring for a few minutes until the swelling goes away, then put the ring back on. This happens more often when you’ve had long lasting nocturnal erections; erections lasting for several hours tend to give you more swelling at the tip than shorter lasting erections. As your skin continues to grow, the morning swelling will become less and less frequent.

    After about a months of wearing an o-ring at night, your nocturnal erections will feel more comfortable; to the point in which you will seldom wake up at night due to the slight pressure on the glans. Once you reach this stage, it is time to try wearing a second ring at night. And as your skin grows progresses, you should continue adding rings to keep the tension going.

    As of now, I wear 6 o-rings at night comfortably. It is getting to the point in which my nocturnal erections with 6 rings is so comfortable, I don’t wake up anymore when I’m having one. In a few weeks I should be able to wear 7 rings to bed without difficulty.

    One thing to keep in mind is that wearing o-rings at night aid in growing more outer skin than inner. If you wear o-rings at night, make sure your daytime tugging routines aim at growing more inner skin than outer.

      First of all, I wear rubber gaskets, or o-rings, at my local Ace Hardware store, and they are made out of black rubber. They are incredibly inexpensive; 59 cents per ring.

      The correct size depends on some factors, like the size of your penis, and the thickness of your skin, but a size #15, or 1 x 3/4 x 1/8 seems to be the best fitting for most men. Size #15 is what I use.

      When you start wearing them as a retainer, and you can wear them for an hour at a time, you should start learning to tug with them on. By tugging with rings on, without loosing their place on your foreskin is a necessary art to master. It opens your restoration possibilities.

        In my early restoration days I did made lots of homemade silicone restoration device like Dave's homemade tugger, retainers and o-rings.......I did use o-rings to retain back then........I did freaked out when the o-ring when back to my corona.....strangling my dick. Ouch!

        I think I try challenging with smaller o-rings. again as it seems like a gentler option useful when my inner foreskin it puffy and tired from my tlc-x.

        I do have experience having a little 'itch' using o-rings. Do you have any idea on what is causing it ?

        Thx

          Let me start by saying that you never wear a ring long time unless you do an "erection test" with a ring on. If the head goes through the ring, it is too big and should be disposed. Get a slightly smaller ring, put it on, then try to get aroused without stroking your penis, and see how the glans and the ring interact with each other. The perfect ring is the one that gets pushed off by the glans while getting an erection.

          The itching can be cause by slight allergies to rubber. Personally I think rings need to be washed with soap and water before wearing them. I got a bad reaction to some rings I bought, and it turned out that is was something on the ring. After washing them, I was able to wear them again without issues. The ones I wear now are #15 or 1 x 3/4 x 1/8.

            Hi hardacroposthion,

            Do those rubber rings stain your skin in black? I say it because some rubber types tend to wear and tear when exposed to weather, UV rays and similar for long periods of time, and then when you handle them you get your fingers badly stained in black. In your case the rubber will be exposed to soap, any oil produced by your skin...

            Anyway, since they are cheap, I guess you can replace any ring whenever it starts to show signs of wear.

              Dude,

              I don't know where you live, or what kind of rubber you are talking about... The ones I buy at my local hardware store are very cheap, but the keep for a long, long time. I'm still wearing a ring that has been on my dick for over 2 years now. Yes it looks a bit duller compared to the new ones I bought, but it's still going strong, and they don't stain your skin. Those that do are made with low grade rubber. I pay .56 cents per ring, and they seem to last forever.

              Granted, every o-ring you put on your dick must be washed first with soap and water. Otherwise you might get an allergic reaction to the factory oils they come in.

                The thing is that o-ring are made for machine use not human skin. What scares me is that if the o-ring have toxic or harmful material like lead. These can leech to skin skin easily.

                Its like when lots of toys have been recalled by China after the the US govnt found out many of the toys from China had lead.

                Im not trying to scare anyone but this is an uncertainty I have........

                  Life is nothing but a series uncertainties we overcome day by day. I don't understand how so many people live with such little fears. I understand that it is important to be careful in life, but you are going too far regarding o-rings. Yes, some of them do stain your skin, and should be avoided. Those rings are made with very low quality rubber. This much I get. However, other rubber gaskets are made with very high quality rubber, and those are quite safe to use, especially after washing them with soap and hot water.

                  I've been using the same o-rings brand since I started my restoration 3 years ago, and all without incident. You cannot let little fears control your life. Take a leap of faith, try something new, and see the results you get for trying.

                    Well I dont really mind if I'm putting the o-ring on my fingers.......but if it comes to my dick the story is different. Well thats just a matter of buying high quality o-rings. If nothing works I'll mold my own o-rings using aquarium sealant. I have been using this stuff as a retainer for more than 3 years and nothing bad happened.

                    Oh btw what brand you use.?If you used it without complications that must be very good ones.......

                      I get my o-rings at my local Ace Hardware store. The brand they sell is from a Texas company. Sorry, but I lost the packages where they come. Since I need to get 4 more rings, I'll take a photo of the brand I buy, and will send it to you, or post it here as a new post.

                      Silicone is neutral, so it is very safe to use on your body.

                        Ok guys,
                        Thanks for your responses and comments. I was only wondering if you had had any issues with the rubber staining your skin, but I guess it is simply a mater of using o-rings with a high quality rubber.

                        I'm going to give the o-rings a try soon. I'll take a look at a hardware store to see what I can find.

                          If you dont mind, mind showing us the one you buy.....I will too soon....

                          I want to buy in ​​​​​the spot so heres a trick... Buy various o-rings on Ace hardware then go to the nearest toilet and wash them with soap. Them try them on the urinary stall. Whem you found your perfect size go back to Ace then buy more of that size.

                            Nomad, this is a brilliant idea. It never occurred to me do such a thing when I was shopping for rings. I could have avoided many trips to my local Ace Hardware when I was starting to restore.

                            I would recommend that, once you find the rings that fit you the best, get the thicker rings over the thinner ones. Thicker rings are easier to manipulate and put on the foreskin compared to their thinner counterpart. Also, if you get erect in the washroom while wearing the ring, it will give you an indication if the ring fits perfectly or not during an erection. If the glans tries to go through the o-ring as you get erect, pitch the sucker and get a smaller one. Try it again. If the erection pushes your ring off the foreskin, and it feels good on the skin, that's the right size. This is what I call an o-ring erection test. Using this erection test on a regular basis for your restoration, works as a tugging session onto itself.

                              Hey guys,
                              Yesterday I went to a local DIY superstore and bought a set of 5 o-ring seals for about €1.5, they are #16 (19.8x27x3.6mm). Also, on the gardening and watering shelves, I found some forgotten spare #15 o-rings, probably fallen from some watering elbows or tees.

                              So, I came home with 10 o-rings for €1.5.

                              This is a picture with 5 #15 o-rings. I found it a little narrow and uncomfortable, especially the o-ring closest to my body.

                              I slept last night with 1 #16 plus 5 #15 o-rings. It felt more comfortable.

                              I woke up during the night with an erection and I could check that nothing bad was happening. The tension on my skin was comparable to what I use when tugging with manual methods, or to what I get when wearing the Your-Skin-Cone during the night with an erection. So, nothing to worry about. I guess I woke up due to the new sensation of wearing the o-rings.

                              In the morning, I woke up with a mild swelling at the tip of my foreskin that disappeared in a few minutes after removing the o-rings. Then I put them back on again.

                              I have to say that I had experimented with something similar a few months ago:

                              It is a spiral / cylinder and an o-ring made of rigid 2.5 sq. mm electrical insulated copper wire (14 AWG).
                              Ok, it isn't the "fifteen rings as a tugging device" shown in hardacroposthion's gallery about "o-rings are not just retainers" but I guess I was trying to reach the same goal.

                              I stopped trying with this "device" since its plastic insulation (probably PVC with a nylon coating) lets my skin slip off very easily. It doesn't stay on for hours at all. Rubber o-rings, in the other hand, provide a good grip and stay in place without any issues. I'll keep on experimenting.
