Archives for posts with tag: exfoliation

I’m now over two months into The Great Stretch and I have to admit that I am seeing a bit of a difference. A few posts back I mentioned how I was noticing a greater sensitivity in the head of my penis and I can now confirm, as was mentioned in the comments, that it was indeed due to the increased activity. The new-found sensitivity has returned to dullsville unfortunately, but it isn’t much of a surprise seeing as that’s what many other people have reported happening.

As an incredibly impatient dude, I asked myself, “What can I do to help speed up exfoliation? I want better sex now.” Actually, I asked Google. What I’ve seen a few people have recommend is to not really force things along. Most people say to only wash with warm water in the shower, not to use lotions or┬ámoisturizer as they contain chemicals that tend to hurt your progress more than help and to keep your knob covered as much as possible and just let your body do its thing.

Two months in, I’m still dullsville Lizard Dick, but one positive thing to report is just how loose and elastic my foreskin has become. By the end of the day when I gear down to shower, I do get a fair amount of coverage that sticks around well into the night. If I leave the device off, say, over a weekend, my foreskin does return to lengths I’m more familiar with, but the skin is definitely more loose.

As for measuring progress, I know I promised I wouldn’t, but I’ve basically stopped. I tried, but every time I’d go to do it, I just didn’t feel I was getting an accurate measurement. How hard do I pull back? Dick’s are bendy and stretchy, so when looking for millimeter results I couldn’t find a reliable, reproducible way of getting the job done. Is there a fool-proof way of doing this that I’m not aware of?

I thought, if I leave my dick alone for one day then measure the length of head exposed, that’s the number I’ll keep track of. Since really at the end of the day, foreskin in that resting state is the only thing that matters. But what happens if/when the foreskin starts to drape over the end? I dunno, measure that distance from the tip? Haven’t thought that far yet.

So that’s where I’m at about 2 and a half months in. In the grand scheme of things, I’ve only barely started, so I’m good with the progress so far.

I’m now one week into this little experiment and I’m still learning what works best for me and getting used to the day-to-day. I’m still having the problem of the Tugger pulling off every once in a while. I’m not sure if it’s because of the tension, which usually isn’t too tight, or the lack of skin to grip, or the silicone sliding off because the skin it’s in contact with is becoming dry. Most likely a combination of all three, but I imagine it’ll take some time before I dial in on what works.

At night, I’ve tried tugging in the over-the-shoulder method, which hasn’t gone as well as I hoped. I woke up in the middle of the night with a pain from an erection and I just ended up pulling the damn thing off. Also the cone sticks out right at the waist line, so unless you sleep naked, it can get snagged and obstructed by your pajama waist. There was also the ta-da moment showing my wife what I looked like wearing it before bed. Honestly, we both couldn’t hold back our laughter. It really does look ridiculous, but anything in the name of science! (and better sex…)

The next night I tried tugging down my leg, day-time style and while it goes without saying, it went worst than the recommended over the shoulder method. But trial and error is the name of the first few weeks.

Thinking I should be doing at least something at night I’ve been applying dry skin lotion, pulling forward what foreskin I have and wearing the Your Skin cone in hopes of exfoliating that top layer of rough skin. I’m still planning on trying the over the shoulder tug later on, but for now I’m just going to leave it at this. Is that the most effective way to get the gland back to its natural state?

After one week, I can already detect a lot of sensitivity returning which is motivating. Unless that’s tenderness from all the pulling my wieners seen this week. I look forward to what the coming months have in store.
