  • Manual Tugging Routine?

    Hi, first off I'd like to say how happy I am to find Ron's forum up and running again. Such a wealth of information that can and will be built back up to its former status . I've been restoring for a little over 2.5 years (Feb. 6th, 2016 will be my 3 year mark). I've used both the TLC Tugger and the DTR, utilizing straps, tension rods, and in the past 9 months or so, inflation. Using these methods I've gone from a tight CI-1, or CI-0 if you consider the fact I've dealt with hairy scrotal skin halfway up my shaft, to a solid CI-3 approaching a CI-4. I'm in the "hump" stage and I strongly believe that by my 3 year mark I will have coronal rollover and will have reached CI-4.

    Although I've liked the steady progress of devices, based on various lifestyle changes and personal circumstances I've decided to stop using devices entirely and switch to manual. In the past I was skeptical as to whether manual could stack up to device use, but I've read many testimonials from veterans that swear by its effectiveness, even with just 30 minutes a day. I've been Tugging for the past 3 weeks; while watching t.v, using the bathroom, and during showers. I've been using method 3 primarily, with a little bit of method 2 at the end if I get an erection. Once I have more foreskin I intend to throw in method 7 (I think this is the "squeeze-stretch" method). I'm basically wishing for feedback from manual-only veterans.

    1. Which routines have you used?
    2. Have certain manual methods proved more effective than others?
    3. Does approximately 30 minutes per day of methods 2, 3, and 7 sound like a solid routine?
    4. If I want my circ scar to be completely concealed at the end, should I focus tension on the outer skin when using these methods? Or can I pinch the skin at my circ scar (equal tension on outer and inner skin) and the outer skin will simply grow faster than the inner?

    Feedback on any or all of the above questions is greatly appreciated

    I've been restoring for nearly a year (a year and a month, actually, but I'm not counting the three months or so of 'life' interruptions), and most of that has been manual only. I've started using the TLC-X within the past couple of months, and I'm still incorporating manual into my routine when I can...and I definitely made progress using just manual for the majority of that time.

    1. I used only method 2 for maybe half a year, and then started throwing in method 4 as well. I also came up with my own method, in which I place my thumbs in between either side of my rolled up skin and the shaft, rest the knuckles against each other, and push outward in each direction. This one isn't used very much at all, but my thinking is that it may assist in the skin getting past the corona. Once I start to get some overhang, I'll cease using that one altogether.

    2. I think the combination of methods I've been using works well, but when I started using method 4 in addition to method 2, things seemed to progress a bit faster.

    3. You'll find many differing answers to this one. Some think 15/30 minutes a day won't do much at all, but others think it's all you need. With my TLC-X, I'm mixing it up to see how much it speeds things along, now having 'passive' tugging in effect. All that being said...my manual routine is an hour a day. I'll hold a tug for 40 seconds, then 20 off.

    4. I don't know if I'm the best source for this question, but I'm usually tugging on either side of the scar, or just on inner skin (and my scar has diminished quite a bit over the past year).

      I hope I can share some of MY experiences with manual tugging with you. I started restoring on and off in high school, not serious but doing the occasional manual tug. I started doing it on my own in college a lot more. I started at CI-3 and has taken me a solid 2.5years to reach where I am at today. I do have pictures in a link I'll provide at the bottom of the post (not sure if I'm allowed, if not I'll remove it) but it is NSFW.

      1. I have ONLY done manual tugging. I've tried many methods of manual to experiment.

      2. I found little to no success with manual method 2. I'm not sure why people praise it but do what works for YOU. I've found treating my hands like a device works the best for me so something like methods 4/5.

      3. Im usually tugging in total 30min-hour but only in 15min-20min sessions. I personally like tugging twice a day in a HOT shower. I have no proof but I feel like it helps a lot with the process of growing and stretching skin.

      4. I grew a bit more outer skin than inner and mine seems to be 100% hidden.

        I had success with manual tugging methods 2 and 3. This along with cross taping provided the necessary slack to get me from a tight ci-1 to the point where I could wear a commercial device. I did have to do it for about an hour a day consistently though. The 1-2 minutes during a bathroom break alone wasn't enough for me.

          What are the 7 different processes of manual tugging you are referring to?

            Thanks for all the replies guys! It's nice to see that people are having great success with manual. I'll stick with method 2 and 3 it looks like, and add squeeze stretch (might be method 6 not 7 I think I was mistaken). If anyone else has any personal experience with the scar fading over time, as well as outer vs inner skin growth (based on where you grip the skin) that would be wonderful

                I use manual tugging for a helper method. Every time i went to pee, i tug for 1-2 min. Method 2, focusing the upper side. Hope this helps

                  LOL! Never knew there were so many different ways to describe how to yank on your foreskin. I don't use manual tugging as a regular technique but, based on the link, I occasionally use methods 1 and 3 to try to get my foreskin to stay in place over my glans before I begin tugging or before attaching a PUD to it..

                    1. Which routines have you used?
                    I've gotten to the point where I've incorporated a little bit of all of it, or a variation of it, and come to find a few techniques I liked through experimentation.
                    I definitely use the squeeze-stretch technique the most.

                    I don't have any set routine.

                    2. Have certain manual methods proved more effective than others?
                    I think they all have their uses but the squeeze-stretch technique is my favorite for a reason.
                    it's the technique that stood out the most in terms of "feeling" the results of tugging.

                    --

                    I've been restoring for probably 3 years now, more seriously within the last year or so, and have ONLY used manual tugging. I've considered buying a device many times but the results I saw on the old forum from manual tuggers in tandem with my own results inspired me to just keep manually tugging. it's not as convenient as wearing a device but you can really target specific areas with manual tugging and as a result I've had very even skin growth... the overall control you have of your restoration is just really nice.

                    I started at around a CI-2/3 and am currently at about CI-6.5.. getting close to 7... end goal is CI-9.
                    I'm pretty happy with my progress so far... within this last year especially. I feel like I'm on the brink of a major milestone and it feels nice.

                      I’m new to this website, but I’m a veteran restorer. I will answer your questions in the order you wrote them…

                      1) From the very beginning as a CI-3, I’ve used my interpretation of manual method 3. Once I reached a CI-4, I then started to retain with an o-ring. As the skin continued to grow, I added more o-rings to my foreskin, which expedited the restoration process. After reaching a CI-5 or 6, I started wearing an o-ring at night. This move allowed me to use my nocturnal erections as an extra tugging routine. I also improved on the Squeeze-Stretch technique, and I added a twist to it. I call my method Pull and Twist, which adds a diagonal tug to the process. Since I’m working on achieving a CI-9, between Pulling and Twisting, method 3, I’m now wearing 6 o-rings at night, and 10 o-rings during the day.

                      2) Combining methods and techniques is the most efficient way to restore. Sticking with only one device, or one way to restore, only slows down the process. In order for you to restore faster, you need to use cyclic tensioning as often as possible, and once you pass the CI-4 level, then you have to start adding methods and routines to your restoration.

                      3) Timing is of the essence. If you split your 30 minutes tugging session into 2 minutes mini sessions done hourly, your restoration process will be faster than just 1 session of 30 minutes. When you tug in short sessions on an hourly basis, your skin gets an hour to recover before the next session.

                      4) By tugging the scar line, and making sure you tug your inner and outer skins evenly, your scar line will disappear. Your goal is to have only inner skin touching your glans once you are restored. You want your scar line to be at the very tip of your foreskin.

                      Cyclic tensioning is really a very effective way to restore. By keeping the sessions short, and repeating those sessions many times a day, you see growth within a few weeks.

                            Can you post some progress pics? You are revolutionizing restoration techniques which have long been shot down. Most here generally think that retaining is useless, as far as skin growth is concerned, yet you have achieved some fast and extraordinary results with O RINGS.

                            I have yet to see any real results from people who claim short sessions actually work. Most of the progress galleries show those who have restored quickly and effectively, logging 8 to 12 hours of tug time a day for years. MJwise has stated that tug time is the delineating factor and the only factor that influences growth of more skin cells...

                              To be clear, I did not take before pictures because I did not believe this restoration process was going to work. I started taking pictures on my 3rd month of restoration.

                              Before I started, my penis looked very much like this one.
                              After 3 months I was on the verge of going over the hump.
                              Four months into my restoration.
                              Fifth month.
                              Seventh month.
                              One year later.
                              Two years later.
                              Three years later.
                              Current flaccid coverage.

                              Erect coverage a year later after starting restoring.
                              Coverage as of 2 years ago.

                              As you can see, it is possible to restore relatively fast but it requires a lot of tugging on a frequent and regular basis. Also, keep in mind that I reposition the scar line to the tip of my penis. In this last link you see the scar line; it used to be behind the glans before I started restoring. My goal was to recreate a skin tube similar to what intact guys enjoy so that only inner skin was in constant contact with the glans unlike what happens in restorations with devices where some outer skin rolls onto itself touching the glans. I don't this this type of restoration is ideal.

                              Some on this website have been disagreeable to my restoration techniques and methodology because it does not conform to those who swear by the usage of devices. Not everyone can wear devices, especially if you want to restore in a workplace that requires you to wear fine fitted clothing. Manual methods and o-rings turned out to work perfectly with the clothes I had to wear. And the problem with devices is that it is more difficult to target the skin that you want to get growing at any particular time. With MM3 on the scar line you are always in control of the skin you tug. Also, some restorers here abide to the wrong presumption that you cannot grow new nerve terminals under the new inner skin, as well as under the scar line. When you use the scar line as your only tugging point all the time, it becomes re-sensitized erotically, which in turn does the same function as the frenar band. As you can see here, because I have been wearing o-rings 24/7 for over 4 years now, the scar line also grows tighter. When I retract, you can see how it behaves as if I had a frenar band.
