View Full Version : tug/restore daily? every other day? hows it working
May 23rd, 2007, 01:22
please make a post decribing your choice and what progress has been made
and anything else interesting
method: I've been tugging every day but for only 4-8 hours
length of time: 3 weeks
results: I'm happy with it, skins loosening up mainly, I've always had the skin bunched up quite a bit behind the head when it's in its softest state so i've always been a CI-3
(I'm a noob posting to this forum but have been visiting these sites on/off for 6 years, and finally decided to go for it, wish I had done it sooner I would have been done by now)

Method: I've been tugging for 2 weeks for 8 hours a day on average and then I wear the tugger to bed. Last night was the first night that I made it through without waking up in discomfort becuase of an erection.
Length of time: 2 weeks...and going strong
Results: It is much easier for me to put on my tugger now and it does pull off of my glans sometimes, which is an interesting feeling. I feel that there is now more skin bunched up behind the head and this, i'm assuming, is just due to the elasticity of the skin. I am happy with my progress and look forward to getting some real results. :)

Been at it for about 4 years. Gung-ho personality here :D so most of that time has been 12 to 14 hours per day, just about all days, but in the last year (approximately) I've switched to one day on, about a 10 hour period, with 1-2 days off. I've seen as much apparent growth with taking time off, maybe more, than I did tugging more or less nonstop (some of this is the resolution of edema caused by the minor trauma that tugging represents, leaving the skin thinner so that it appears to cover fractionally more structure). I've always advocated taking time off, I've just only recently followed my own advice, and I'm glad I did :D. For me this has been a very important part of the process.

Hey Man Can you give some pictures of your progress. It sounds impressive. I would like to feel like you do now, but i am in a hurry and probably hit things too heavy .

I tug every day. I tug at night. At night, the TUGGER usually slips off by itself, or else I will feel a pinching in my new skin and have to remove it at least temporarily. I have made quite a bit of progress, about 1" of new skin in just 3-4 months, and in fact can even retain the tugger with an erection for a short time. I tug most of the time, with only short periods inbetween.
I also tug probably with more tension than most, as I find that I can stand the discomfort with the end results in mind. I have bent more safety pins than I can count. But my progress has been well worth it, and I will eventually be posting photos as soon as I can figure out how to do it.

I use my tugger daily and am pretty much strapped to the knee for most of my waking hours. At nighttime, I strap over the neck/shoulder. For the 2-3 weeks, I had issues with a painful erection while the tugger was on; however, now (6.5 weeks) the tugger stays on all night and also have noticed that my glans is no longer contacting the cone during the day.

if you are going at it 24/7 the key is gentle. What I call the "rejection factor" is important to avoid. Anything that acts on tour skin in a prounced way will cause eventual rejection, which is why some promote time off. Adaptation is another word for skin growth, which is something you should not stop at. Keep the pressure on gently, and adaptaion will try to catch up but never quite make it. Time adds this up, one sheet of paper at a time (to use an analogy).
Heavy-set people get bigger without really noticing their tissue expanding because in such case the body adapts beneath our feeling awareness. Any use of force to do this and you will feel it. Skin expansion in such case is balanced, or the forces at play are evenly matched, so nothing is felt but results occur. This happens over time. We cannot feel time, but it is occurring. The forces in tissue expansion should be gentle for best, and most permanent, results.
Alternate methods, like physical fitness.. The best I have found are:
PUD- great, simple, free-weight use of gravity, a constant and even force. However, you wouldn't lift weights all day, so don't carry one on your penis either.
TLC Tugger- great little simple elastic force device that rythmically stretches by expanding and contracting (with movement). Non-movement promotes skin growth thru principle of adaptation.
VLC Tugger- utilizes principle of the vacuum (slight) to produce a compelling force.
TLC Packers- promotes homeostasis by filling the vacuum. Great when weight and straps need a break.
Between all these you can go round the clock.

I found packing during day - work - I stretch with mild tension but constant
tugging in evening - add more tension to further the daily stretch
cone during sleep - gives that needed rest to start over in the day
sometimes if I'm feeling aggressive and the my skin is up for it I'll continue to tug into the night.
Like my extra title states ...packer by day and tugger by night it works best for me and I have found the results couldn't be better.

Wake up at 6 a.m. to get ready for work and put the tugger right on - just make it part of the daily routine. Commute to work, wear it all day, then come home at around 5:15 p.m. and take the tugger off. Usually by that time it is tender down there and needs a break. Then I wear the cone to retain for the night, and start over the next day! I have been taking Sundays off usually as a rest day. After, close to six months (already?) of doing this cycle, I *think* the project "seems" to be working - I mean, it is really hard to tell?!?! Most of what I see is that the skin can be pulled over the glans much easier than when I started, but the little monster won't stay covered otherwise unless I hold it there. The keratinized skin did flake off, which was an interesting sight.
So all of this is pretty cool, to say the least, because none of it was happening when I started with maybe a CI-3? I can also tell during masturbation that there is some sort of snapping feel going on as the skin rolls onto the corona - it is definitely more intense in this respect. I don't rub furiously anymore like I used to, but am learning to use the rolling motion of the skin instead.
My woman thought this was a weird project when I first started / thought the tugger looked like a torture device, but now pretty much accepts it. We have even talked about not circumcising a future son (should we end up conceiving a boy after marriage, anyway). Now *that* would be coming full circle. :cool:
Thanks all for sharing your experiences.
