    Hello, just thought I would say hello. Been on again/off again restoring for a few years. My goal is to have full coverage when erect. Luckily when I was cut at birth I was left with some coverage to work with. Glad to be in such a dedicated community and I hope belonging to the group will give me more motivation.

    Welcome.

    What method(s) have you been using on/off? Just curious.
    If you're concerned about being able to maintain motivation, the best advice I can give would be to take progress pics at regular intervals. I know it helps when it starts to wear on me, and I lose my motivation, to be able to go back and see just how far I've come. It makes it crystal clear that I am getting results, and my effort is paying off. Perhaps you do this already.

      The Metal One i have a tlc tugger which I’ve used over the last few years. I have a physical job and using the strap method for tension can become annoying at work. I just got the tlc-x with the weights and I think the strapless method will be easier to manage. The picture idea is one I never really thought of so I think I will do that so thank you

        Yeah, straps and weights are pretty much impossible to use when you're doing physical work.
        I can say from personal experience that using something like the TLC-X, on its own (no strap, etc.), is much easier. The only slight problem is that, if your pants aren't loose-fitting, you might be able to see the outline of the device. In my old Air Force uniform, it was totally invisible, but those are some really loose pants.
        When you're not at work, adding a strap/weights at home can help...even if it's only for a few hours. Manual stretching is also an option. Let me know if you aren't already familiar with the various manual methods, and I'll give you a couple links that explain everything.

        I'm glad the picture idea was helpful.

          The Metal One i was in the Army so I’m familiar with the pants lol. Luckily I don’t wear skinny jeans so that hopefully won’t be an issue.

            Dtom1776, I happened to review one of Ron Low’s instructional videos on assembling the TLC-X (which I have) and the compact weight system which he offers. The video uses two spacers, plus he also offers additional metal washers in case more weight is desired. I was thinking about purchasing this because I do like the bi-directional tensioning produced by the TLC-X with springs and push plate, however, I’d already purchased another compact weight system from Stealthretainer.com. I think it’s a really good design, plus as an added bonus I could urinate through the retainer portion while wearing it if I had to (I don’t), so not wanting to go on a spending spree by purchasing yet another device attachment, I’ll just stay with what I have so far. Only draw back is that the StealthRetainer weight system only tugs on the outer foreskin, not the inner (due to absence of bi-directional push plate feature) It also has multiple pieces, but seems slightly easier to assemble/disassemble in a stall than the TLC-X. I too have a very physical job, so when I wear the compact weights, I also incorporate a tether (which Stealth offers) and attach it to a pant belt loop with a carabiner or I could also wear my ‘tug n wear’ jock strap. That will catch any pieces if it comes loose. Just my two cents.

              tuguser so I use both the TLC-X with weights and the DTR from other site. I find using both has been a game changer. I have only been getting back into tugging the last month but these two devices have made such a difference.

                Dtom1776,

                I concur...TLC-X is a great device. Haven’t any experience with dtr, though lots of guys swear by it.

                  tuguser they in my opinion do two different things. I love the weights with the tlc-x but I find that the dtr grabs the outer skin better. That being said, I’m happy using both as both designers are true hero’s in the movement with such great products.

                    Agreed. Both designers are indeed true heroes. Especially to someone like me, who’s not very handy for creating my own homemade device. I have no problems with the gripping of the TLC-X ‘my skin’ cone, otherwise known as the ‘gripper’ portion. I do, however, rinse thoroughly with water inside and out as well as the white ‘tugger body’, rubbing it clean with my finger. Then let air dry and man, I tell you, it GRIPS. If I were to use hydrogen peroxide, or any alcohol based solution, it would totally get rid of the yellowing effect that occurs on the my skin cone. Since I usually use all five pieces of danglers at the same time (36 oz.), I can only tug for 60 minutes each time before needing a break. Almost every time I remove my tugger, there will be a thin film of residue of sloughed off skin cells all the way around the tugger body where my skin tube was resting as well as on the inside of the retainer cone. This tells me that something is happening...hopefully new skin cells being grown and old ones sloughing away. If I don’t rinse it off each time, then I’ll have problems with it holding to my skin.

                      tuguser i have also noticed the wet film lately and didn’t know what it was. Changes are happening for sure

                        Yep, changes are a comin! I’d read sometime ago another restorer posted that he’d often need to clean his TLC-X pusher plate because it would be sopping wet with (pre-cum?). I don’t know... I think he wrote that it was water but I think it might’ve been ejaculate or something along those lines. Apparently, some fellas excrete quite a bit of pre-cum from their urethra even without erection or sexual stimulation. I guess there’s all different kinds of people who make up this world. I think I’d read several testimonies about this type of secretion. It sort of reminds me of porn videos I’ve seen in the past where some women secrete such voluminous amounts of lubricant, it’s like watching a drinking fountain going at full tilt. As for me, I’ve never experienced anything even remotely ‘wet’ as you stated. Kind of wish I could though, almost feel like I’m missing out.

                          tuguser honestly idk what it is to be honest. I never had it while using just the tugger and my skin cone. It’s only
                          been with the tlc-x and dtr. But I haven’t had the results until using the two different systems.
