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 men 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 all by itself.
Flaccid coverage was something I archived years ago but erect coverage was still out of reach...until now.
As my piercings healed and my erect coverage continued to get better 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 also continued to use an O-ring to keep my skin forward during this time.
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. As this healing process took place I noticed that my foreskin would partially cover my glans when I was erect.
My foreskin piercing was intended to keep my skin over the glans 100% of the time. I could still retract my foreskin when flaccid to shower etc and I could also remove the piercing quickly. I figured this would be a great idea back in 2005 after I reached flaccid coverage. Unfortunately the piercing reduced some of the gains I had made due to how a surface piercing heals and I had to deal with pierced skin getting irritated many times as I continued to restore after I let them heal for one full year.
Some back story on my Foreskin piercing blunder that more caused years of slow progress from 2005 onward.
This was me earlier in spring of 2016 when my piercing was inflamed and started to reject after years of having it.
I have had the piecing since 2005 and although it caused many issues as I continued to restore I never had a problem like this one.
In spring 2016 I really had no choice but to abandon the piercing and let the piercing heal and hopefully it would become more pliable. I did not think that I would have any major issues with it healing. But I felt if I waited any longer I could have a larger problem then I had by this time.
One piercing would swell up every so often and I would need to stop restoring until the swelling would go down and that normally took a few days.
Over time this caused the piercing to thicken and lost the pliability they previously had.
This was something new and my restored foreskin never did this in all the years I have been restored. Erect coverage with no assist ? Even I had my suspicions on that possibility that it was possible but here it was happening to me after all these years of being restored.
This was taken in early spring of 2016, Sorry the light sucks but when this happened I was very frustrated and only took this one picture.
After weeks of doing this exercise I had an injured the skin from being to aggressive with the finger pull exercise. I also had a slight injury
on my frenulum that was the Bi -product of an old frenulum piercing and being to aggressive with this manual exercise.
Now, after I did my piecings in 2005 I made a modified DTR bell with grooves to accommodated the pierced skin so the gripper would not press as hard on them. I still could not use the amount of tension I was using in the past without irritating the piercings but at least I could use Dual tension again.
This injury to the top side cleared up after stopping the "Finger pull stretch" for a couple of weeks.
I did this again December of 2016 but not nearly as bad as July 2016. This is what the skin looks like when I was too aggressive with the stretch in Dec 2016.
The finger pull stretch injury
This cleared up like before when I stopped being too aggressive with the manual stretch.
The use of lotions and oils will greatly reduce the chance of skin injuries like this.
Emu oil is one of my favorites to use when doing any manual stretching.
I am testing a Vitamin B12 cream to see if its a better
Could the use of O-rings create a "Rigid band" to keep the foreskin forwards over the glans ?
After almost 2 years with erect coverage I strongly believe that the use of O rings over time created more of a "bottle neck" to the skin. This bottle neck happens to be in the same spot as my " this band " and its what keeps my foreskin over my glans even when erect unless I retract the skin.
I personally use the 3/4 inch size but others may want to experiment with different sizes to see what fits best for themselves.
It is my personal opinion that a person needs to have enough skin so that technically there is enough to cover the glans in the first place for this band to be created. Agian this is just my opinion.
I believe that after the skin gets stressed by a restoring method the skin starts repairing itself. During this period of repair and growth the skin that in under the O-ring is kept in a much more smaller diameter then normal. I sit possible that the skin develops a bottle neck that acts as "ring" of skin that is smaller in diameter over time. Now I am not in the Medical profession and never claim to be so use your own judgment on anything you read.
This new "ring" of tighter skin resembles the "rigid band" of an intact foreskin and keeps the skin over the glans unless it is retracted manually. I have seen this with my own personal experience experimenting with this method. I am not not saying my original rigid band has grown back.
I started to roll back the foreskin to the point where you can see the "band" at the very end of my foreskin.
Now keep your eye on the band as I move the skin further down the shaft.
This is the area that is directly under the O-ring when I am using an O-ring.
Its pretty clear the "band" is smaller in diameter then the penis shaft.
You can clearly see this band that is the end of my foreskin as hold the foreskin back.
This is the best visual proof of what has been going on with my foreskin just by using an O-ring to retain with.
So, To clear things up. This is not caused by an injury. Any injury I had to my skin has local (meaning I had damaged my skin in small areas )I do not think this could have done this from an injury especially since is started a month before I injured my skin by getting to aggressive with a the manual stretch excessive I was doing.
I waited over a full year before finishing this page just to be as clear as I can on what I think has caused this band to develop and allows me to have erect coverage.
Thanks to everyone that has been patiently waiting for me to finish this page. I just wanted to be certain on how this developed so that others would have more detailed information.
Now, what I am about to discuss may sound out there but after close to two years of trying to understand this "band" development I truly can not find any other reason on how and why this has occurred. This is my own personal view on what is going on and you may have your opinion. The best I can do is share any information I have.
I could be 100% off with my opinion as to why I have the "band" at the end of my foreskin. So if anyone else has some thoughts please drop me an e-mail.
