  • Thanks for being here

    Well, I turned 31 this year. Shortly after my birthday I read an article that completely turned my world upside down. I'm not sure how all this information escaped me before, but I'm glad I am finding this now. I have always had issues with my own sexuality and have never really known the root cause of these problems.

    When I was in my mid 20's I actually got into PE a little bit, but in a different form that wasn't ideal for me. I guess I was just confused, I knew something was wrong and wanted to fix it, but didn't know how. Granted at the time I didn't know anything really about the effects of circumcision, I knew I had been circumcised in my infancy but was under the false assumption that this was just some extra skin that I didn't need. I thought the worst thing about being circumcised was I lost a little bit of length. So in my PE I was just focused on making my penis bigger overall. I had some success at this and it helped my confidence a little but I still had the main underlying issue that I had not really addressed at all. When I read that article I tried to rush acceptance of this, it was crushing, and I was all ready under a lot of stress in my life. I grieved a little, but I tried to move on as quickly as possible because I thought there was nothing I could do about it.

    It wasn't long before thoughts of this came back to the surface, and they were even more painful. I've always felt a sense of discomfort from circumcision, but had previously thought this was just a normal thing. Now that I have had the realization of what had happen to me, the discomfort seemed to be worse. Thoughts of myself as an infant helplessly being cut would bring actual physical pain to that area. I sat in quite for many hours dwelling on this shame.

    Finally I decided to take a chance and do a google search for "foreskin restoration" among the links was the TLC Tugger website. After browsing around and watching some videos and felt a million times better, I felt like there was hope. I still have some learning and growing to do, but I just want to thank you for being here. You are making an incredible impact on many lives and I greatly appreciate you for this. Excited to learn a lot here and share my successes soon.

    What was the article? I dabbled in PE for a brief second. It wasn't for me either. Pulling on my penis for 20 minutes a day got old, and usually never had the intended end. I don't know how those guys did it, cause you do it in a semi-erect state and you have to stop if you get too erect. I don't know about you but if I am oiled up and pulling on my penis, I wont stay in a semi-erect state long. So that 20 minutes went on forever!! I didn't gain much from my brief attempt, but I still think it works, if you can get your penis to cooperate.

    Its strange, but I understand where you are coming from. Give FR a good go. You will enter a new state of body acceptance. Trust me, I did.

      Thanks brother, already noticing improvements after a few days.

      I believe the article was from

      Was a tough read, I don't think I even got through the whole thing. Honestly it's still kinda tough to read up on this stuff, just brings up a lot of emotions and anger. It's a process though and I'm working through it

      I feel the PE might have been counterproductive in some ways making my muscle bigger while ignoring the skin just made things tighter and more uncomfortable. I was trying to find a solution to a problem without fully understanding the problem. I think I'm on the right track now though

        I got into penis pumping a while back which is purported to contribute to both penile and foreskin growth.

        I still pump occasionally but it's not a fetish w/me as it seems to be with some men. Do like the fat look I get afterward and I do believe (but can't prove) that it has contributed to the growth of my penis (by about 1/2") and my foreskin (currently CI-6/7). BTW, I believe that the increase in penis length actually comes from stretching the suspensory ligament; not from pumping up the penis like a balloon (which is temporarily pleasing) per se.

        Have given some though to buying a DTR to use to inflate my foreskin only to see if it will help me get full coverage 24/7 which I have yet to achieve. Where is am now is similar to stage CI-3/4 when I was trying to get my foreskin to rollover the edge of the glans.

        Seemed like that would never happen (although it did) and it seems like I'll never get full 24/7 coverage (but I expect I will). Just need to keep on tugging.

          I have done some PE in the past as well..before I knew about FR. Nowadays I use some of the tools/tricks/trades of PE to help the FR. One helps/hurts the other depending on your ultimate goal. I find that some PE work be it pumping, jelqing, stretching, etc., always makes my FR more productive. Given the true goal of restoration and body modification, my PE takes a backseat. FR can be worked all day/everyday if you know how to set it up. PE can be worked as well but it may take a little more setup. Don't give up, don't go too hard, and find a reason to love yourself both figuratively and literally.
          Listen to your body. Do what works for you. Best of health! Good luck!
