You've read through webpages, blogs, shops, and online communities and while you have a general idea of what's going on, you're having trouble picturing yourself restoring your foreskin. Maybe not due to a lack of information, but because there's a lot of information out there. Maybe you just don't know where how this can fit in to your daily routine or if you have the patience for it. Does this resonate with you? If so, keep reading to see what I go through on a daily basis.
I'm going to warn you right now by stating that I like keeping things as simple as possible yet thorough. If you're expecting something super complex, you've come to the wrong place - at least I hope. I know if it's too complex, I won't have the patience to stick with it.
Note: Please be aware that I am only providing an example of my own routine, and am NOT endorsing anyone else's equipment.
I started restoring around late 2020, early 2021. Since then I've established my routine and my do's and don'ts. I started with a simple, homemade canister device - an old medicine bottle cut into a tube with medical tape on it. I eventually tried other maker's devices and then my own. Trust me, it's much safer and more comfortable with a professionally made device.
I do have a regular job. I work from home and run my business from home. However there are lots of guys with more physical jobs who regularly restore through the work day like I do.
I start my morning the usual way: go to the bathroom, take medicine, eat breakfast, get kid off to school. But before anything I make sure to moisturize. Soap and daily living take their toll on all of your skin, especially down there. Plus I'm tugging, inflating, and doing God knows what with my junk all day. Keeping your skin moisturized can help prevent abrasions, tears, and irritation. It's the easiest and probably the most forgotten "do" of restoration! I recommend wiping off excess moisturizer with a towel right before applying any devices.
When I finally have a few minutes to myself I'll apply a ball stretcher. Not only would I like the boys to hang lower, but I'd like to prevent getting a turkey neck between the scrotum and shaft of the penis. Internet opinions claim ball stretchers help with both. It's difficult to apply it if the scrotum is bunched up like mine usually is so I make an "OK" sign right over my balls and pull down until they are good and lose (usually 30 seconds or so). Then I apply the weight carefully to avoid pinching. I leave this on until I'm ready to shower and go to bed. I also make sure to take it off before going to the gym to avoid injury. Otherwise, it stays on all day unless I'm uncomfortable.
I want to make sure the scrotum is good and stretched so I'm not putting too much tension on the "turkey neck" area I mentioned before. So I wait about an hour before applying a foreskin restoration device. Most of the time it's one I design and sell myself and most of the time it's air inflation. Mornings are hard and I find this the easiest on my skin, so I start there. Everyone's different. I leave it on for an hour or two before taking a 30 minute break and switching to another device or method (like tugging, weight, et cetera). You want to alternate throughout the day if possible to put tension in different areas.
I go to the gym several times a week, so I make sure to remove any cock-and-ball torture (foreskin restoration or ball stretching) devices before I leave the house. I typically massage the skin a bit to get the blood flowing for added comfort, then apply a retainer.
Before bed, I'll shower and wash all the day's devices in antibacterial soap. I'll often reapply moisturizer.
Do's and Don'ts
Do follow device manufacturer's instructions.
Don't drastically modify devices as this can result in injury. Some will say I'm being overly cautious but just remember, you only have one dick! Treat it right.
Do take breaks and follow medical professional's advice when applicable.
Don't try to "power through" any pain. Take a break! Ask any restorer; sometimes you need to take several days off.
Do wear your device if you are confident you can reach a bathroom to remove it in the event it gets uncomfortable.
Don't plan on wearing it all day without breaks. It's not realistic and can do more harm than good.
Do wear your device only when you are able to monitor and pay attention to it.
Don't wear your device to bed. They slow circulation and can become uncomfortable or dangerous without you even knowing.
Do expect for this to take years before reaching your goal.
Don't try to speed the process up by pushing beyond your limits. This process takes time.
