So you are new to this restoring thing and you have some questions???
Does restoring hurt? And is a dangerous?
Restoring should not be painful and it's not dangerous as long as you use common sense and listen to your body restoring is extremely safe.
Listen to your body, when trying a new method always start off slowly, use low tension and slowly increase the time you restore per day until you are comfortable with it. Some discomfort may be felt after wearing a device for a period of time. This is your body telling you to remove the device and take a break.
Restoring is a slow process so try not to overdo it by stressing the skin out too much too quickly.
With your own personal experience you will discover where this threshold is.
What's the best way to restore?
There is no best method or device. To be successful in restoring you have to be able to use a routine and methods that are going to fit your lifestyle. Everyone has their own favorite method that works for them.
Will my restored foreskin be loose and baggy?
Unless you are outwardly expanding the skin the restored foreskin should not be baggy.
The more skin you grow the more of a tapering the end of the foreskin will give. I call this overhang, when the skin is over the glands and naturally tends to tighten up.
A restored foreskin with overhang looks much tighter than one without overhang. Circumcision removes the rigid band, this is a natural tightening at the end of an intact foreskin. It acts like a draw string, this cannot be regrown by any restoring method. Overhang is the only way I have found to non surgically achieve something close to this.
After years of making the DTR the dimensions of the DTR Bell have been averaged out to fit a mojority of men.

How many hours per day do a need to restore?
This will very slightly from person to person. With my own personal experience I have found that 6 to 8 hours worth of restoring per day to be just right. The hours do not have to be consistent, the amount of time you restore per day can be split up throughout the day.
Retaining your skin when sleeping is a completely different story. Anyone thinking of retaining and sleeping should test whatever they're going to use to retain their skin when sleeping for the same amount of hours while awake to be sure it's going to be comfortable for them to use when sleeping. You may want to test getting an erection while retaining since this will happen with nocturnal erections when sleeping.
My Skin sometimes changes color under the gripper, why?
When the skin is under the gripper on a DTR Bell there is some pressure put on it especially when using higher tension. This will slow some of the blood flow to the skin causing it to change color. This could be reddish, purpleish, and even just whitish in color.
If this happens depending on the amount of tension I am using I will remove the device once per hour. Sometimes more sometimes less depending on how much tension I am using and how long I have already been using the device for that day.
Having a device that will give you options and lasts a very long time makes restoring much easier.
Personally I found an O-ring or the "keeper" to work better with dealing with nocturnal erections. Retaining when sleeping is one of those things that only you can decide on. Some guys have no issues while others have issues.
I think a person who is a grower would have more issues with retaining or restoring when sleeping because of the dramatic size difference when erect
Sleeping and Restoring. Can it be done??? Short answer is yes but with some precaution.First you need some skin to work with otherwise nocturnal erections are going to put more strain on your skin and may wake you up.
First anyone trying to restore and sleep should not be new to restoring. You need to know what your doing and should have some experience with restoring.
Methods: Tugging is the only way I restored when sleeping, I did this for while after I had about 6 months worth of restoring under my belt. I made a chest harness that my DTR bell would connect to. This kept the DTR bell facing up so I could deal with nocturnal erections.
Personally if I was to try this again I may use the Retainer since it the grip is not as tight. Since I did not use high tension when sleeping I would not need something that had an intense grip.I do believe the Retainer could be used by many men to tug with as long as they had some skin to work with.
Can I wear the device while sleeping?
This was the only method I found could be used while sleeping. I feel the tug method is the safest method when attempting this since it only pulls the skin in one direction and does not put stress on the glans.
When I first did this I did notice that most mornings I would find that the device slipped off or I took it off when I was half asleep.
After a few weeks of trying this every other night I was finally able to get at least 4 to 6 hours some days 8 hours worth of restoring. After a few months of doing this back and forth I decided that this day and night routine was just too much and I went back to just restoring when I was awake.
