View Full Version : New to foreskin restoring and need help
April 19th, 2012, 06:09
Hi I'm 14 years old and started restoring today. I'm currently a CI-1 and using method 2 but I am not sure If I'm doing it right. I'm pulling the skin back at the base of the penis and pulling up from my circumcision scar, but I'm not sure if I should be pulling up from the scar or from the Corona. Can I also just use method 2, to restore my foreskin or would I have to use foreskin restorer devices once I get enough slack or could I just continue using method 2 for how ever many years it takes.

Hi. I noticed nobody was replying, so i thought I'd say something. Im only a beginner as you are at a CI-1 (possibly almost 2), and I am almost 3 times your age. Im a little jealous I didn't start this when I was 14. There are many very cool guys here who will no doubt give you their expert advice very soon. I have worked out that it matters very little in the early stages, you are just trying to make some slack on the shaft skin so you can in a few weeks or months, start using devices other than tape for much more precise tugging. Im trying to make sure I use the tape crown or cross tape method to sleep and other activities, but ONLY if it does NOT hurt. There is no room for pain in foreskin restoration, so just take it easy and use your own judgement and sensitivity. I think its ok to pull from just under the corona on actually skin, while holding bottom of the shaft. It's the area either side of your scar line that will experience the most stretching and growth over time. I keep pulling up on my shaft to encourage it to roll up over the corona. I have never really done that before in my life, but now I do it at every chance. Let your foreskin know that you intend to make it home for your glans. Good luck to you
Please anyone, If I have given wrong info to this chap, put me right.

Manual methods work well, and some people have used them exclusively until they were done restoring. For now you'll want to tug all that you've got between the base of the shaft and the glans. This includes both the shaft skin and remaining inner foreskin (between the scar and glans). The way to use method 2 for tugging the inner foreskin is to hold the glans in place with one hand, and using the other to pull the skin away from it like you're already doing with the shaft skin. As you grow more, it becomes easier to tug using the other manual methods, but the important thing is really to find something that works and stick with it.

I was wondering, since I'm still in school and can not buy a foreskin restorer devices without my parents finding out. Which would be the best homemade device to use while I'm in school and at night. I will first start manual tugging using method 2 untill I gain enough slack skin as I am about a CI-1. I've also tried cross taping but I'm not sure if I'm doing it right as I'm pushing the penile shaft into the skin and I'm not sure if it will push my scrotal skin up, as I'm trying to get it down since I have many pubic hairs up my shaft. I have heard that the tlc tugged is very usefull but sadly I can not buy it, is there anything I can make that is similar to it? I also have oven bake clay if that is helpful in anyway and really interested in reverse taping in the future but can't find any videos or pictures which tells me what I need and how to do it.

Stick with the manual tugging for now. Cross-taping can work the way you describe doing it, but getting an unexpected erection while it's taped would be painful. Either way, progress may appear slow at first; just keep at it, and the skin will gradually loosen up.
When I was your age, I also had what would be considered a ci-1, so I can understand where you're coming from here. What I can't imagine, though is using any sort of device at that age - running around at school while wearing one could get awkward, and there's the issue every male teenager has with spontaneous erections (which can be a problem when using a device without much loose skin available). I found out about restoration when I was in college, and even then I found it difficult to wear anything while I was out during the day (what with long walks across campus, sports, etc.). Scheduling a bit of time during each day to tug at home might be easiest - but figure out what works. Just don't let it inconvenience you too much.

Ok Thankyou. I was just wondering if I need to stretch both iner-foreskin and outer foreskin, or just one. Does method 2 stretch both and should I just use method 2 untill I'm finished restoring or should I use a specific method the longer my foreskin grows. I was also wondering how long did it take you to see results?
Anyway Thankyou so much this forum is really helpful and full of great people :)

Definitely tug both; no matter what ratio of inner to outer you were left with, you'll probably want more of each.
Inner foreskin is what normally would have been the foreskin's inner lining. It's what would have been in constant contact with the glans. The way a few restorers I know were circumcised, there was very little remaining inner foreskin to expand, so their restored foreskin was mostly shaft skin (if that makes sense). If you have any remaining, though, expanding enough of it to cover the glans inside the foreskin simply takes time.
To tug your inner foreskin using method 2, you would simply use one hand to pull it away from the glans, while using the other hand to hold the glans in place (since the skin is already held in place by the corona). The various manual techniques they can be used for your entire restoration, but as you progress, you'll have to figure out for yourself which ones work best.
