Restoring Myths and things you need to know
The past few years I have seen many new web sites now on the subject on restoring. Just like everything else, once something becomes popular people try to cash in on it.
I have seen everything from fake foreskins that you can wear to creams that claim you can cut your restoring time in half.
One creams main ingredient ended up being extract of Hirudo Medicinalis
( Medicinal Leech ) I'm not saying all these products don't have some good benefits. But I know when I see phrases like " The best , fastest, easiest way to restore yourself" I can be pretty sure I am being sold something that really isn't. It's like seeing late night TV ads on exercise products that promise amazing results but only end up being something you throw out three months later.
The bottom line is there is no "Best" Product out there ! Everybody needs and lifestyles are different. The best advise I can give to anyone restoring is to find a couple of methods to restore yourself that will fit your lifestyle. Restoring does not happen overnight. It takes time and dedication to achieve your goal. So please read everything you can on the subject of restoring. Educate yourself and use common sense to help you choose what will work best for you. This sites main goal is just to show others that restoring can be done! If you feel a DTR will help you achieve your goal or just have a question on restoring then contact me and I will answer any question you have.
There are some ideas on restoring that sound good in theory but if you think about them logically it does not make sense. Take the taper of a device. Whether it is a bell or cone it really does not make a difference. At first thought you would think that a device with a smaller cone taper would make the end of your restored foreskin tighter. I really don't see this as being possible since I am taking my shaft skin and pulling it to force skin growth. This is the basic premise for restoring.
Looking at the pictures on the right you can get a better understanding on what I'm saying. The area of compressed skin is simply being held in place by a gripper or tape while the shaft skin is being stressed by means of tugging or bi-directional tugging (like the DTR).
The tight Taper Myth when using a restoring device. Revised 2017
Skin does not grow inwards onto itself as you would hope it would.
Remember we are taking existing skin that we have now and making it longer so it covers the glans. A real foreskin has what is referred to as a Rigid band. This is the end of a foreskin that is tighter and has an elastic like look to it. Some foreskins are longer then others so it is not unusual for even uncut men not be fully covered by their foreskin. This is why there are many uncut men using restoring techniques to gain more skin.
The good thing about restored foreskin is that it does tend to wrinkle and close up to some degree when it gets past your glans.
So if your worried about a big baggy foreskin don't unless your using a device or method that pulls the skin outward you should not have this problem.
Manual stretching and keeping the skin over the glans will in the long run help produce a tighter end to the foreskin. I have found that the end of my foreskin continues to get better as time goes on. Manually stretching the skin such as using an exercise like the finger pull is helping me achieve a tighter end to the foreskin and also has given me over 80 % erect coverage. This is something others may want to think about when they're at the end of their restoring process. I think the final phase of restoring should be manually stretching the skin in my opinion since this is much different the using a device.
Check out this page for information on the particular stretch I am talking about.
Its 2017 and I still have not seen any evidence that shows the shape of a restoring device contributes anything to tightening the end of the foreskin. The only method I have used personally and have heard others use would be manually stretching the skin providing there is enough skin to cover the glans when flaccid.
I do believe the shape and material used to construct a device is why some devices grip better then others , but that the only thing the shape of the device does in my opinion.
