    Hello all. I am brand new to the idea of restoring what was taken from me at birth. I have purchased the tlc-x and have tried it a few times but i am in uncharted waters. Where do i start? what measurements do i need to take? what is cyclical tension? How do i determine where i was cut and where to go from here? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    1. Not "where do I start", but when, and that ... would be now.

    2. Nobody needs to take measurements of anything. Measuring doesn't get anything done. That isn't how this all works. So don't be concerned about this.

    3. "Cyclical tension" is just putting some tension on skin, then releasing that tension, putting it back on again, releasing it, etc. And that's it.

    4. "Where" you were cut is on your penis, at the scar line. Sounds sarcastic, but I don't mean it that way, I just want to point out that "where" you were cut isn't all that important.

    5. And "where" you go from here is ... tug. Just tug.

    But you need to know a few things:

    From your glans (the head of your penis) to your corona (the flared ridge of the head), down into the groove behind the flare (if you have one; it's called the sulcus) and for a short distance, say an inch or two, towards the base of your penis and ending at the scar line, you have a certain type of tissue, called mucosa. The mucosa from that groove, to the scar line, is part of your old inner foreskin tissue. The skin on the other side of the scar line, all the way down your shaft to your penis base (and farther) is shaft skin.

    Most of us end up beginning with tugging on shaft skin. It is flexible and easily pulled forward, and you will need a bunch of new shaft skin eventually, in order to roll into a tube which will look like a foreskin. Devices (in general) pull on this shaft skin, when you roll it onto the inner cone, and trap it there with the outer cone.

    So it's shaft skin that sees the most tension when you pull forward on it. A small amount of mucosa, from the sulcus to the scar line, also might see some tension. When either tissue (mucosa or shaft skin) is stimulated by this tension, it will add a few cells to itself, thereby eventually forming NEW, ADDITIONAL, permanent tissue.

    Here's the thing: the tension that we apply becomes "cyclical" because skin (especially shaft skin) stretches out temporarily when you pull on it, and when this happens, that initial tension decreases a little. Yielding to tension (temporarily) is what skin is naturally made to do. In other words, skin is stretchy; it's part of it's protective role. So, you have to reapply the tension at some point in time, to re stimulate the skin, and this is done by re adjusting the device. That "on/off" tension, even if it isn't completely "off", equals a "cycle".

    If you wear a strap with your device, then that strap flexes, and with each flex the strap applies tension, then releases it, then reapplies tension. That equals several "cycles" of tension. So you can begin to see that cycles aren't something you have to focus on much, or at all, because they are inevitable the way we all tug. This is true using ANY device or method out there. They all give you cycles of tension on your skin. Can't get away from it, and there's no need to because have always been good news.

    So..........you only have to begin. You can start for now with just your fingers if you want to, to get a feel for how this all works. Or, you mentioned you bought a device, so use that if you have enough loose skin. Either way, device or manual, all you have to do is put some tension on skin, in cycles. Your skin does ALL the rest.

    It's really just that simple. This will take years, so you might as well begin. You can certainly ask questions here, along the way. It's all worth it in the long run. There is benefit and returned function that you aren't aware of now. Hang in there, and you will see.

    Good luck.

      Great information thank you. I have messaged another member, Nitro and he also has given me some good information. I have enough shaft skin to roll onto the cone to cover it completely but that is pushing the limits. I will start to get more interested when i see skin rolling onto the head in a flacid state but for now i am just tugging. I am able to tug for 8 hrs a day at work and i wear the cone at night and hopefully i can start wearing the device at night but i also want to give my skin time to heal so not sure if i should wear it at night. The strap and cyclical tension makes a lot of sense and i was hoping that was the case as i feel it constantly tugging as i walk around all day and do maintenance. It sometimes falls off but i just reattach it asap. Well hopefully i start to see results soon. Thank you for the advice.

        You're welcome.

        The results that happen from tugging happen on a level that the naked eye can't see; the microscopic level, a few cells at a time, so seeing some sort of actual result will seem like it never appears, but just go on tugging and it will. Endurance is key.

        Eventually you will begin to see very small wrinkles in shaft skin, close to your glans. That's the first visible indication that new skin is growing. This response from your skin is a naturally programmed process, with its own rules, so we have no choice but to allow things to happen as they happen.

        Over much more time, those wrinkles will grow larger and larger, and eventually begin to bunch up behind the corona. As you try to roll down a skin tube you will see those wrinkles flatten out. Over much more time, you will see that you're able to roll that doubled over tube farther down over your corona and part of the glans. At that point you are well on your way.
