    Greetings everyone! My name's Ryan, and I've been looking into restoring for some time now.

    Long story short, I had my foreskin the first several years of my life. I was born premature, and the doctors recommended not circumcising me right away because of risks. I do not know the reason for waiting so long, but when I was 5 my parents woke me up early one morning and took me down to get cut. They believed it was the normal thing to do, and more hygienic. I don't blame them for this, it's the kind of place we grew up in.
    I still remember having my foreskin though, and like many others I did miss having it. I always admired uncircumcised men in comparison to my own form, but figured this was the hand I was dealt. Fast-foreward ten years or so and I hear from a friend that he's restoring his foreskin. At first I thought it was just something like a gimmick, but then I found another friend of someone I knew who was doing the same thing. They both answered a couple of my questions, then sent me to TLC's website. I've been sold ever since, and once I saved up a few bucks ordered a tugger for myself. It just came in the mail the other day, and I am wearing it as I write this! I look forward to seeing the improvements over the next few years, big or small. Thank you all for taking the time to read my story.

    Welcome! I am always delighted to see that there are still men getting into restoring. I think you are more on the CI-3 side, and shouldn't be long for you to get to the rollover point. Take heart, you are way ahead of the game and fortunate. Good attitude, this is a long process and glad to see that you do recognize overall goals take years. But, I think you will see improvements each month. Take your pics, even if you don't post them (wish I had listened to my own advice here). As you look back you will notice how far you have come. This forum can be a great resource for you! I know it was for me over the years, even if I didn't post much before I was forever reading the posts of the Masters. Oh, and check out tumblr for inspiration as there are a few other restorers posting there of various pictures of restored progress/completion and intact men. Though if you are offended by sexually explicit images; best to stay away from tumblr--cause even the most innocent post can lead you into some strange places.

      Oh nothing to worry about there! Haha. Thank you for the advice though, and for the warm welcome. I'm very happy to have found this site, and look forward to seeing the changes. It's only short term, but even just seeing my skin more loose after tugging is an amazing feeling!

        Welcome to the forum.
        Sorry you were cut without your consent.

        Don't stop tugging and you'll soon see results, from month to month. Also take the appropriate rests. Keep track of your progress, it is always a source of motivation for you and others.

        From Madrid, Spain. Restoring with T-Tape, Manual, TLC & TLC-X since Jan 2014. Started as a CI-2, currently between CI-4 and CI-5 depending on the day.
