Long time no stretch

May 31, 2011 Leave a comment

Well, I’m sad to say I have stopped stretching.

Last month I decided to also pull back on the skin with some force during my stretching sessions. This seemed fine at first but after a week or so the skin started getting very sore and flaky – even painful. This meant I had to stop stretching and putting the cream on altogether.

This amongst other things like trying to finish college successfully meant I could no longer stretch for quite a long period. Needless to say (or perhaps the opposite of that because I’m not sure it’s been documented before) all the previous weeks of stretching were a waste as the band went back to how it was previously.

At first I was upset and disappointed that I had failed my mission but after a while I came to accept it wasn’t the end of the world.

Not only can I start stretching again whenever I like but I also know that I can keep up a good routine if I need to. I will be doing some travelling over the next few months which would make stretching even more difficult so I may start up again when I come back.

To all those trying similar techniques to me I suggest you don’t pull back the skin tight like I did because although it wasn’t painful to do, the resulting problem was.

Patience is most definitely a virtue

Well, I’m still doing my daily routine of stretching. I haven’t been able to move up in size with my stretching tools however which is slightly frustrating.

Sometimes I feel as though the hole is getting smaller on some days – I suppose maybe it is sometimes but hopefully, overall, it is getting bigger.

I can certainly tell the difference when I pull back when in the shower. The opening is a lot larger than it ever has been. Probably around 6mm. The sad thing is this ‘ring’ of tissue is taking so damn long to stretch. I’m still using the steroid cream so hopefully it’ll slowly but surely help things out.

All is not lost!

It turns out that I didn’t flush my correct-fitting ‘flesh tunnel’ down the toilet – it was in fact thrown in my paper bin! I rescued it and disinfected it and put it back into service last night!

It’s around 6mm in diameter around the centre (the ends are slightly larger) and it’s a bit difficult to get in initially but once in it’s nice and snug. Last night I put this one in with a 3mm one and you know what – it’s done the trick!

Yes, it really has made a difference already. Leaving these two in over night has seen almost a complete reduction in ballooning when I go for a wee. This is something I am not used to and it feels a bit odd to be able to relax and let it all come out at the speed it’s meant to(!). Obviously when ballooning things come out at a set, slowed-down speed – set by the size of hole in the end of your foreskin.

Anyway, tonight I’m going to use the same combo of strethers and see how things are in the morning. A nights worth of stretching has never been so easy! 🙂

Skin stretchers arrived today!

Well, finally, over a week after I bordered them, my skin stretching pieces arrived today! I tried one out during the day which wasn’t very practical so have decided to only use them during the night. Let’s see if these help me out at all…

How tight is tight?

I suppose I should state my starting point here. Funnily enough, I found out the other night that I have what’s called ‘pinhole phimosis’. This is the most extreme version of Phimosis so it looks like I’m in for a long journey ahead. I’d say the opening I have is probably around 3mm.

Things seemed to have stopped in the results department. I still have ballooning when urinating and I can’t seem to get the stretching to perform any better.

flesh ear stretching tubesI’ve decided to invest in some ‘flesh tunnels’ or ‘ear stretching tubes’ to see if they’ll enable me to stretch any better. They’re basically little plastic tubes that range in size and are originally designed to stretch people’s ear lobes.

They were only a few pounds off a well known auction site so  I’ll have to give them a try and see how they help. I am thinking of leaving one in overnight and applying cream at the same time after my usual stretching routine so I’ll be sure to keep you updated on the progress. I purchased sizes ranging from 2mm to 20mm so I’m hoping to get to 20mm as soon as possible obviously!

My stretching technique

March 28, 2011 Leave a comment

OK so this is what my routine has been for the past month and a bit:

  1. Stretch the foreskin as much as possible without causing pain. Slight discomfort is fine but pain is a no-no. Using my ‘tool’ I carefully insert the ‘plier’ end into the foreskin and then start pulling them open to widen the end.
  2. Holding this and stretching the skin for 10 minutes.
  3. Masturbate afterwards if the mood is right 😉
  4. Apply a small amount the betamethasone cream onto the very end of my foreskin and rub in for 60 seconds

2 weeks in…

After a couple of weeks of stretching I did notice a very slight improvement. I reckon that the skin stretched perhaps 2mm in total. This was quite frustrating obviously so I decided to take more action and get some cream to help me along.

Betamethasone cream is something I had researched previously, again, it was something I had tried in the past but with no luck – mainly because I didn’t stick to the drill.

Betamethason 0.05% cream is a topical steroid cream which helps during stretching by increasing the rate at which cells in your skin multiply. In the UK it is know as Diprosone and you can only get it on prescription…or can you? Well, luckily I did find a site that would ship it to this country without the need for a prescription. I know this isn’t really the right thing to do but I know my doctor wouldn’t have prescribed it to me. I saw my doctor about my issue years back and he hasn’t even heard of the cream, he said the only real way to do it was to be circumcised so you can imagine my response to that – no thanks! If I have to deal with things myself then so be it.

So, back to my 2 week mark. After feeling rather frustrated I decided it was time to get back on the cream as my routine stretching had been going well so far. So now, along with stretching I use my cream as well.

Now, I’ve seen a lot of sites where people have said they’ve used the cream and it’s been really effective but no one really says how they use it. Do they put it on while they stretch? Before they stretch or after they stretch? Well, your guess is as good as mine but I have been doing it after. The main reason being I feel this is the best time to allow the cream to seep into my skin and do its work. The fact I do it overnight means it stays on for longer too.

In my next post I’ll explain exactly what my technique is.
