It’s here!

January 6, 2009

My DTR arrived this morning! I’m very impressed how quickly it arrived here in the UK, having only ordered it on New Year’s Day. I am wearing it now and it feels rather comfortable, and it goes on far easier than up to a dozen o-rings, so I should have no problems wearing it whilst at work. I’ll look into getting a picture of it up at the weekend.

Month 3 Photos added

January 3, 2009

I have taken several photos for month 3, which you can find in their own page on the right. I ave also added a comparison page so that my progress can be seen at a glance.

3 Month Update

January 3, 2009

Happy New Year foreskin fans! Sorry it has been so long since my last post but rest assured I am still restoring¬† as best I can and believe I am making good progress. I have recently started a new job and what with Christmas and all I haven’t really had the opportunity to bring this blog to front of mind.

This coming Monday will be 3 months since I started restoring and am currently still using the multiple o-ring method. With just o-rings on their own, I can fit around 13 or 14 on in one stack, but that is a little too many to be manageable or practical for general tooing and froing. I made myself a couple of packers out of Fimo clay which I started using when I could fit 8 rings on without packing. However, I am now finding that the packing along with half a dozen or so rings is starting to cause friction burns when used for any more than 3 or 4 hours at a time.

So, on New Years Day, I ordered a DTR, which I hope will arrive by the end of next week. Along with the burning, packing with o-rings is becoming a little too time consuming and cumbersome to be able to restore whilst at work, so I now need an alternative device, and after looking at what is available, I decided the DTR is the best one for my needs.

As far as photos go, I will try to do some later, however I’m not too sure they’ll show an awful lot of flaccid difference compared to the first batch taken in October. I was a CI-2 when I started and consider myself to be at the tail end of CI-3 now. Won’t be long now before I start rolling over- I hope!

7 and a Stop

October 17, 2008

Well, I am up to 7 rings now- with the aid of a stopper fashioned from the tip of a baby bottle teat. The good thing about using the multiple O Ring method is you can actally measure your progress in real terms, without the guesswork.

At this rate I will be up to 8 rings by the end of the month quite comfortably, at which point I will start using some kind of packing, dropping back down to something like 4 rings and then working my way up to 8 and then increasing the amount of packing ad infinitum.

Sensitivity is beginning to return to the glans and the skin texture is beginning to change a little. It is now rather uncomfortable to have the glans exposed and rubbing against my clothes, so I am doing everything I can to make sure I am covered as often as possible. To this end, I am experimenting with ways of keeping covered at night time too, without having to stretch the skin (night erections etc). Someone on one of the forums suggested using the remainder of the baby bottle teat to hold the skin in place during the night, so I will be giving that a go tonight.

Still going!

October 11, 2008

Well it’s been a week and I’m still restoring, which is the longest I’ve gone with an attempt at this. This I attribute to the ease of using O-Rings.

I have been experimenting with different sizes and thicknesses of rings and have found that a thickness of 3/32s works best for me. Right now I have 6 rings on- 4 at 3/4″ ID, 1 slightly bigger on first and 1 slightly smaller to hold them all in place at the end. Obviously this is more than the 3 1/16 of varying sizes I started off with last week, but because of the experimentation this week I can’t measure any progress in numbers. Hopefully I can add an extra 3/4″ ring per week for the next few weeks until I have enough length to add a stopper, which I will make when it is needed.

As for sensitivity of the glans, I think there is some extra sensitivity, but not enough to make any discernable difference. At night I am not wearing anything as that would most certainly cause injury.

I will post again when I am up to 7 rings.

Pictures up!

October 6, 2008

I have taken some pictures and uploaded them here. You can find the link if you look to the “Pages” section on the right of this page.
I have now managed to fit 5 O rings on, 4 3/4″ ones and 1 slightly smaller to hold them in place. Obviously this doesn’t mean I’ve started growing new skin, it just means that the skin I already have is being able to be stretched a little further now it’s had a bit of encouragement.

Day 2

October 5, 2008

For the time being, at least, I have decided not to go for the 24/7 approach as there really isn’t an awful lot of skin to work with to allow for night-time erections, so I took the rings off before I went to bed last night. I plan to wear them all day during the day time though, giving me approximately 16 hours per day, 7 days a week, which I think is sufficient. I will be posting pictures here and plan to do my “before” shots tomorrow when I have the time and the privacy.

In the mean time, I’ll tell you a little about me.

I am 31 years old and live in England. I was circumcised at 14 due to a very, very tight foreskin (the hole was only 2mm wide!), not as a baby like many men. So I vaguely remember what it was like to have a foreskin, and therefore have something to miss. Luckily I was cut very well and reasonably loose and there is a fair amount of frenulum remaining. One of the main reasons I want my foreskin back is due to a slight injury I recieved during sex about 8-9 years ago- someone snagged a tooth on my glans during oral sex! With all the day to day rubbing against my clothes that area gets rather uncomfortable and every few days the skin sheds off like if it were sunburnt. It doesn’t hurt, but I think it deserves some protection from daily wear and tear.

I plan to make several posts here over the next 2 months as I experiment with different ways of stretching etc, but after that I expect to only make 1 or 2 posts a month, with pictures to update my progress.

My goal is, for now, to have complete coverage with a slight overhang when soft, and I’ll re-evaluate when I reach that point. I am a grower, not a shower, so I hope this goal will be acheived by Christmas 2009.

This time for real!

October 4, 2008

If I had continued how I started roughly 18 months ago, I would probably be near completion with restoring my foreskin. However, due to the “hassle” of messing around with T-tapes I lost interest pretty quickly and stopped restoring after only about a week.

I am, now, going to have another try, and again I will blog about it here. One thing I have noticed over the last day or two, re-researching the topic, is how old the information is on the net. 99% of it hasn’t changed over the past 18 months and I cannot find any new diaries/blogs. So my motivation is providing something new for the community, as well as myself!

Right now, I have opted for the multiple O-Ring method. I have 3 rings that I bought from B&Q (did I mention I am in the UK?) in a pack for ¬£1.08. There are about 10 in a pack of various sizes, none duplicated, so I will pop back down there sometime in the next couple of days so I have some spares. As I said, I can only fit 3 on at the moment as there isn’t an awful of skin to work with, but hopefully over the next few weeks I’ll be able to start increasing this number.

Watch this space!

Ping!

June 15, 2007

After a walk to the shops the T-Tape pinged off, which is slightly annoying. I have now opted to just put a cross of tape over the head of the penis with the skin pulled forward. This does feel quite snug, and I can manage that whilst I re-evaluate how I am going to achieve my goal. I am going to Wembley Stadium tomorrow to see Muse so I won’t be able to post this weekend.

Trial and error…

Day 1

June 15, 2007

Today I went out and brought all the necessary equipment I need to create a T-Tape and strap device. This consists of a roll of micropore tape, elastic, clips and needle & thread.

I will add links in the links column to sites that demonstrate how to make a T-Tape. There are other methods and devices out there that do the job too and I may try these out at later dates, but for now I’ll try the tape.

Currently I have a T-Tape attached and it feels quite comfortable. It was my third attempt as the first 2 didn’t stick. It is just a case of experimenting and finding what works best.

For the first week or two I will make posts relatively frequently and I will post pictures for reference and comparison. After that, posts will become more infrequent, probably once a month as the need to show progress becomes less important.

I am looking forward to having a foreskin again, and becoming more ‘complete’ as a male. Let the journey begin…
