These techniques have been used by many restorers when first beginning to restore and there also great for mixing your restoring routine up a bit.
I have seen drawings and text on the subject but never real pictures showing how to do these stretching techniques.
Manual stretching with no device
The "squeeze technique"
While pushing my first finger against the glan tip I hold the shaft skin with my index finger and thumb
As you can see here I am holding the foreskin ( new restores will hold there shaft skin )
with three fingers in this first step. You can use your other hand to help work the skin into this position. I then pull this skin away from my body.
Using my other hand I will squeeze my fingers around the skin tube I have created.
This is easier if your glans are a little moist so that the glans slide down as you squeeze the skin tube.
Another view of what I am doing to create the skin tube. I work my glans down as I wrap my fingers around the skin tube.
As I squeeze the skin tube I pull up with the three fingers that is holding the foreskin.
What is happening while I do this is that my first finger holds the inner skin and the other two finger grip the outer skin. As I squeeze it stretches the skin by pushing the glans down.
This works sort of the way my DTR works. Pushing and pulling at the same time.
I squeeze pretty hard so that I feel a burning sensation. I hold this for10 seconds and then release the squeeze and squeeze again for 10 seconds. I do this for about 5 minutes. If I feel my fingers slipping I just repeat the first steps to re grab the foreskin tip.
I also use a pierce of paper tower wrapped around my first finger to prevent the fingers from slipping. You can bruise your skin and your glans for that matter if you pinch them to hard so be careful if you try these techniques.
You can use two finger if you cant use your whole hand. This is a simple and fast way to get a good stretch on your restoring foreskin.
The "finger pull"
This technique works by inserting my two middle fingers into the foreskin and pull upwards. Even though it may look like I am pulling it outwards as I pull upwards I am not. I don't want to stretch the foreskin tip so that I loose any taper I have I am just pulling the foreskin away from my body.
The "Grip pull"
This technique works by holding the tip of my foreskin like I would if I was doing the squeeze technique but instead of squeezing with my fingers I hold the shaft skin downward as I pull the tip upwards So the top hand goes up and the bottom hand goes down. This stretches the shaft skin. I would do all these techniques for a total of 6-7 minutes a day when I used them.
I will be updating this page with new pictures and a video (oct 2016 ) . I have re-thought the importance of manually stretching the skin and will be focusing on this much more. I do think a combination of using a device and manual stretching works better then Manual stretching alone.
