Glans to shaft ratio (G.T.S.R)

Will having a better glans to shaft ratio help when using a foreskin restoring device

With all the recent interest in foreskin restoring I want to address a few issues some men will have when trying to use a restoring device for the first time. As we know the process of restoring is to take shaft skin and coax it over the glans overtime.  This is much easier when the glans width is the same size or smaller then the shaft width when Flaccid.

G.T.S.R ( Glans to shaft ratio ) This is just what it sounds like. Gland width compared to shaft width. The optimum situation is Subject A to my left.

Subject A has been restoring for a little more then a month using the DTR and is having good results.

Subject B has a much different anatomy then Subject A, The glans are much wider then the shaft and stay plump even when flaccid.

Having a G.T.S.R like this would make applying a device more challenging especially if there is little skin to work with.

The DTR bell it is about the same width of the shaft but the glans are very plump even when flaccid and can’t seem to squeeze down enough to coax the skin over the glans and onto the DTR bell.

A solution to this may be using the T-tape method or manual tugging until the shaft skin can be coaxed over the glans to attach a device.

Penis size isn’t as big an issue as one may think although there needs to be some “material” to work with behind the glans in order for a restoring device to hold onto.

Having some shaft skin is more important then overall penis size. The skin shaded in yellow is what will be stressed in order to stimulate skin growth to eventually cover the glans with.

This person does not have a large penis shaft when flaccid but because there was something to work with he was able to restore using a device without to much trouble.

DTR on penis

A restoring device needs some skin to be attached to. The more skin available the easier this step is to accomplish.

This DTR user is using skin very close to the base of the penis as the anchor point of attachment.

This anchor point is going to vary from one guy to the next depending on available shaft skin. So its not the overall length of the penis but the available skin behind the glans thats important.
