I've only recently started restoring. I began with tape (for about two weeks) and then moved on to my tugger, which I've been doing now for about two weeks. The tugger is great, and so much more easy to use, but I started experiencing numbness of the glans about the time I started using it. The numbness goes away in about a day or two if I stop using, but quickly comes back when I begin again.
Anyone had this experience?

You may have sensitive dorsal nerves Ė some people do. Donít ignore the numbness, just patiently work it out so that it is resolved. If you search glans numbness, you will find that about everything on earth can cause it Ė veins, nerves, bicycle seats, high blood pressure, blood pressure medicines, diabetes, STDs, prostate problems, psychological issues (being compared unfavorable with someone else), injuries, etc...
It is curious you didnít have problems with the tape. Watch the numbness closely. See if you can isolate if its time, tension, tugger attachment position, or something else. If you switch back to tape for a couple days, does the problem go away? It may be you are pulling to hard, it only take a little tension. I found that when starting, I needed a lot of tension for the tugger to stay on. Now with some loose skin, I need barely any tension at all.
