I’ve been doing a little reading on another foreskin restoration device called the DTR, and I gotta say I’m starting to see the appeal in a bi-directional tugger. Although I’ve never tried the DTR and it could be a case of the grass being greener and all that, but never-the-less I’m intreged.

The DTR is a bi-directional¬†(NSFW), strapless tugger (no more strapping to your leg) that also breaks down its parts into what is essentially a strapped tugger. And being bi-directional, the maker claims this method produces a more even growth balance of inner and outer foreskin focusing its rubber band tension on the foreskin itself and not spread over the entirety of your shaft. I haven’t noticed anything, but I’ve read that long time tuggers experience the scrotal skin slowly making its way up the base of the shaft meaning you have hair growing where you once didn’t.

One factor to consider is the cost. The TLC Tugger was about $60 when I bought it and last I checked, the DTR will run you about $100. Some people will rationalize this since it’s one guy making them all by hand, which is fine, but I get all squirmy thinking about investing even more into growing out my foreskin. Because, let’s face it, how many devices does one really need in this valiant quest?

I’d love to try the DTR out and give an opinion, but I think I’ll take my wife out for a nice supper instead and stay committed to my first choice. I figured by writing about it, I can bring it to the attention of other men interested in getting started. The TLC Tugger has had some press and attention, but take a look around before you commit to one and I’m sure you’ll be surprised with the variety of options out there.

So, have any of you tried the DTR or both TLC Tugger and the DTR? What did you think? Are there any other devices you feel strongly about? I’d love to hear some opinions.

Today I’m celebrating sixth months of foreskin restoration, if you want to call a passing thought a celebration. But yeah, 6 months into the big stretch and I’m happy to report things are going well.

In a bitter-sweet sort of way, I’ve achieved semi-consistent accumulation of smegma resulting in the head of my penis becoming smoother and having a healthier colour than before.

Sex is more satisfying in ways I didn’t anticipate. As I said before, oral sex, for me, was a ho-hum affair. I appreciated the gesture, but the excitement really came from the act of it all and not so much the actual skin on skin sensations. I had read how much more satisfying things became after shedding some of that calloused skin, which it has, but what really surprised me was what I was feeling further down the shaft past the head.

It was like a whole other world. I felt like my wife was going down on me deeper than ever before, and after looking, I realized she was motoring along at her usual pace. It just felt like she was taking in much more of me. That, in itself has made the last 6 months so much more worth while.

The TLC Tugger has held up exceptionally well. The strap has gotten a little stretched out, but still useable and the silicone part of the device doesn’t show any signs of wear. I’ve also noticed it’s not giving me as much hassle as before. There’s a lot less pinching and it stays on most of the day. I’m guessing this is all due to wearing experience and longer foreskin length to grip to.

I haven’t measured over the last few months for the same reasons I’ve stated before. It’s tough to get an accurate measurement when dealing with millimetres and multiple factors changing the final measurement. I do have some data and pictures from before I started and a few weeks in, so I am able to go back and compare, but I’ll be missing out on the minute changes happening week to week. I can live with that.

While I haven’t officially measured myself yet, I have noticed a definite lengthening during my day-to-day. Especially when, not sure what to call it…milking my dick…?

Other men will understand what I mean. After you’ve peed or came, you pull your foreskin back, then squeeze and slide your hand toward the tip clearing out your urethra and keeping your underwear from getting sticky later on. I think of it as milking anyway.

It almost become muscle memory at this point, but lately I’ve noticed when I pull my foreskin back to the base, I have to go back up a ways and pull again to clear more foreskin out-of-the-way.

Another thing I’ve noticed is sex is different. Before my hard cock would slide in and out, skin-tight. Now I feel my foreskin remains somewhat stationary against her vagina while my dick slides in and out of my foreskin sleeve and her pussy. And having that stationary outer foreskin creates a kind of seal that keeps everything nice and wet. And when I pull out, I can feel my dick come out first and then my foreskin follow a split second after.

And that’s the kind of progress I’m looking for, real world examples.

So, its been a crazy summer. I moved! But that also means I have home renovation projects for miles and besides that, a bunch of other stuff has been going on. So how’s the foreskin regeneration been going? Well, there’s been none. I like to wear shorts and took the summer off.

Fortunately, even though I haven’t posted in a while, that doesn’t mean I didn’t write anything. I wrote up a 6-month check in but have been too busy to proof and edit to post. But last week, on a whim, I took a look at the site after a long while of inactivity and saw that a lot of people have been reading along. So what I’m going to do is dig up that old post, clean it up a bit and put it up as a retrospective, a six month and then a ‘now’ after months of not tugging. After that, we’ll be all caught up, no?

Also now that’s its getting to be pants weather again, I’ll be getting back to the grind and posting my experiences on my goal to grow out to a CI-8 (Coverage Index of 8, 10 being the highest) (NSFW).

Currently in between a CI-4 and CI-5.
