The story of Erect coverage.
Erect coverage is something that most restoring men dream about including myself. Although I have heard stories form other restoring me that clam to have erect coverage without assist I found it hard to believe. Especially since I had been restored for years and never had erect coverage that stayed over the glans by itself. Flaccid coverage was something I archived years ago but Erect coverage was something that just eluded me.
Good morning wood! I took this snap shot after I woke up one morning in July 2016
After a month of letting the piercing heal I started using a manual stretching technique I call the "Finger Pull Stretch" This was a spin on a stretch I did years ago in the beginning of my restoring I called the "squeeze technique" that can be seen here. Manual stretching. I did this for weeks for about 5-15 minutes a day ( total time ) 4-5 days a week. This time was split into 2 sessions of 5 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes at night before I went to bed.
I decided that night to remove the piercing for good and hoped it would heal and not cause damage that could not be undone. The piecing just becoming hard and thick and continued to get worse if I had not decided to remove it for good.
The skin no longer moved over the glans. I had two lumps from the piercings on the sides of my foreskin and the skin was no longer pliable. In all my years of restoring getting small injuries this had me worried the most.
I used an O-ring to keep my glans well covered and used vitamin E-oil to heal things up. It took about a month for it to get much better.
My foreskin piercing was intended to keep my skin over the glans 100% of the time. I though this was a great idea back in 2005 after I reached flaccid coverage. Unfortunately the pierced skin made it difficult to restore after 2006 ( after it fully healed ) when I started to restore again to get more skin since I lost some gains due to the healing process of the piercing. Some familiar with a genital piecing will know that the piercing will shrink a bit as it heals depending on where the piercing is done.( scrotal or foreskin )
This was taken in early spring of 2016, Sorry the light sucks but when this happened I was very frustrated and felt I just screwed my restoration right up and really did not want to take any pictures of this problem because I was very pissed off and upset that I allowed this to happen.
Some back story on my Foreskin piercing problem.
This was me in early spring 2016 when my piercing was inflamed and started to be rejected after years of having it.
I have had the piecing since 2005 and although it caused many issues trying to continue to restore with it I never had a problem like this.
I really had no choice but to abandon the piercing and let the piercing heal and hopefully become more pliable.
The piercing would get irritated anytime the gripper was pressing on the pieced skin area. I went threw this issue for years and then out of the blue my piercing just started to reject.
This caused the piercing to swell and become like scar tissue. The piercings themselves were getting smaller also as the rejection continued.

As I continued to do this exercise my erect coverage was getting better with each month. I went from 60% erect coverage to %80 in a matter of a few months. I was very excited to see this kind of progress happen so quickly ..but I did wonder why it was happening to quickly.
The pictures here shows how the skin started become to tight due to a couple of issues I will address later on the page.
As I pull on the skin the top of the foreskin starts to dig into the glans a little.
The skin felt a little to tight when retracting it and this was something I did not want to happen.
Although it was no painfully it did cause an issue with how the skin glides up and down over the glans when erect.
Now as this was happening I was posting pictures of this erect coverage and asking anyone if they experienced this also. I went over everything I was doing trying to figure out what I was doing wrong now and why this was happening to me now.
Now prior to these photos I had about %70 erect coverage and could retract the skin without any issues. It was snug but not tight. After sexual intercourse the skin would take a day to regain the %70 erect coverage ounce again.
Everyone knows that restoring does not happen overnight and it can be a long process so why was this erect coverage happening so fast?
I know that my foreskin piecing was the reason why my progress slowed for many years and most likely prevented me from having erect coverage but now my erect coverage was progressing unnaturally fast
I did remember two things that happened within the few months of this extra tight coverage. The first was that while doing this exercise I was not allowing my skin to fully retract when I did the exercise.
I had always retracted my foreskin daily when taking a shower but not when fully erect. I also did not have sexual intercourse for a couple of months due to family health problems and the unexpected death of my farther in law. Sex took a back seat during this time in my life.
Something I have learned over the past year is that my foreskin and glans can not take the aggressiveness that they used to be able to handle years ago. Everything now is just to sensitive to use aggressive methods. I am not complaining since that was the whole reason to restore.
I believe by being to aggressive with the manual stretch I had damaged an area of skin just under the surface bellow my frenulum. This caused the skin to constrict more then natural. That along with not allowing the skin to expand by retracting the foreskin when erect is what caused this issue. The worse thing about this is that me of all people should have known better. Being to aggressive is never a good thing.
So how do I fix this issue.. easy.. Let the skin retract and stop being so dam aggressive!
This side of the page will show when I was being to aggressive and not allowing the skin to retract when erect.
This side will show what happened after stopping everything for about 10 days and then allowing the skin to retract when erect when doing the stretching exercise and being less aggressive.
This was just to uncomfortable to retract.
You can see the skin no longer digs into the glans.
At this point its just about to pop over the glans edge.
This side shows a much smoother transition as the skin glides back.
The foreskin would pop behind the glans while retracting quickly at this point when erect.
Here we can see the skin is much more pliable and expands easier.
This is a picture of the glans fully retracted without the uncomfortable tightness.
Since these pictures were taken the skin is better and move pliable. It glides over the glans like it used to but still has a nice snug feel to it.
So what did I learn? I learned that I need to retract the foreskin When doing the finger pull stretch so that I do not cause the end of the foreskin to become to tight. I also need to back off on being to aggressive with any method I use at this stage of my restoring. I will continue to post updates and will do so soon since its been months since these photos were taken.
Thanks goes out to everyone who has followed these posts. I did not mean to confuse anyone with this new "Erect coverage" phase I was going threw and its why i felt the need to revise this section.
I did this to get back into restoring since I was pretty upset with the events that has unfolded. I really just wanted to get back to having flaccid coverage and have the skin move like it use to.
This brings us to the picture at the top of this page. I was extremely happy to say the least That by removing the piercing and doing a manual stretch exercise I was able to finally have erect coverage within a few months after my piercing mishap.
So I did what most people do when something works good, Exploit it to work better.. But instead of being smart I decided to get aggressive and take the fast road to disaster!
And this is when things got stupid.
