I’m a little over a month into The Great Stretch now and while I think I’ve gotten my head around the day-to-day, I still question if I’m doing a lot of things right.

The first two weeks I wore the Tugger I kept the strap flush along my inner thigh simply because that’s where it was lined up when I put it on in the morning. Since I work a desk job, the sitting and standing would cause an issue with tension consistency. Standing would be fine, but sitting would leave the pulley strap too slack.

With a little experimentation (and re-reading the TLC Tugger email confirmation…) I realized it was better to position the point of connection below your knee from the inside of your leg to the outside. By doing that I was able to keep the tension between standing and sitting consistent. Now that might seem incredibly obvious to you as it does to me now, so that got me thinking if there aren’t any other tips I’m not picking up on.

Not only did moving the point of connection to the outside of my leg help with consistent tension, it also reduced the frequency the device would fall off. For the first few weeks that was a bit of an annoyance so it’s nice to see it staying in place for longer periods.  But it’s still far from perfect, I’ll admit, as the Tugger pulls off on average 3 times daily.

I would like it if it didn’t pull off at all, but I’m not about to start taping or getting into any messy powders now. Maybe some readers could provide some helpful tips on how they improved their own TLC Tugger tugging?


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.

Today was my first full day with the TLC Tugger. Putting it on in the morning, I got the feeling I was going to be like a woman with a dirty little secret wearing a vibrator out in public, but maybe it’s my vanilla life style that was exaggerating the situation as the day wasn’t such a sexy affair. In fact, it was more peculiar than anything.

Hitting the road on my morning commute I couldn’t help but limp a little as my wiener pulled up and down my pant leg. The sheer sensation of walking with this silly thing strapped to the head of my dick immediately put to mind the image up top. It wasn’t painful, just different. Climbing stairs, picking things off the floor, everything seemed like a new experience. Nothing unwanted, except for going to the bathroom; that was one thing that provided new challenges.

I had to duck into a stall if I was going to get anything done. Slipping the silicone device out from under my foreskin, I had already noticed the head of my penis become a little more tacky and moist. A small difference but never the less motivating.

Reapplying the Tugger has become a bit of a race. For some reason I keep getting an erection whenever I try and get the damn thing on. I’m sure it’s only temporary and once the thrill of sandwiching my foreskin between two layers of rubber wears off, I’m sure I’ll be able to slap this thing on without thinking twice about it. Haha, did I already mention my vanilla life? Maybe I’m just now discovering an unknown kink for rubber? Only time will tell, but I have a feeling it’s just my teenage like libido. Doesn’t take much to get me going as I’ve already illustrated.

There was one point in the day where the Tugger did pull off. After sitting at my desk for an extended period I got up for a walk and could feel the Tugger pulling free of my foreskin’s doughy grasp. I panicked a bit imagining the outer rubber piece tumbling out the bottom of my pant leg so I ducked into the bathroom relieved to find that with the Tugger still attached to the leg band, it would be next to impossible for the outer cone to separate from the device.

With my first day in the bag, I’d have to say it wasn’t that bad. It was slightly painful at times because I’m still getting used to putting it on comfortably and as soon as the boners subside I’ll be able to take my time a little more to make sure it’s secure and comfortable. But as of this writing, so far so good.
