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.
