The Retainer is an aggressive/passive approach at retaining

Retainers have become another way to restore by using an aggressive/passive approach to retaining.

The idea was to have something that would keep some stress on the skin after using an aggressive restoring method.

Foreskin retainers gripper

The retainer sits on top of the glans and the shaft skin is pulled up and held in place by a gripper much like the DTR and Tug bell.

The retainer can also be used with aggressive methods such as Direct Air and weight

long foreskin retainers

Approximate weight with/gripper
20 mm (20 grams) 30 mm (30 grams) 40 mm (38 grams) 50 mm (48grams) 60 mm (58grams)

Foreskin retainers hole

Standard center hole:
For venting and to use the retainer with other methods. Direct AIR, Weight.

The hole is 1/4 inch (6.35mm)

Foreskin retainers  solid

Solid :
For those that want the Retainer without the center hole. Good for guys that like to use oils and lotions on the glans while retaining.


Guys with a frenulum may want to opt for a notch with their retainers.

The bottom of the retainer is about 10 mm deep. This is about half the depth of a DTR bell.

spacers for retainer

Spacers can be added to add length to a Retainer with a 1/4 center hole.

This turns the Retainer into a “packing” device.

Spacers can not be used if you require a notch.

retainer with string

Some men will make a leash for the retainer. This can simply be done with a piece of string and a safety pin.

I found the Retainer to be a very useful device. It was able to hold on and not fall off the way O-rings can when you dont have much skin to work with. I did use it for Direct AIR and Weight when I was using those methods vs the DTR bell because it was a little more compact. I was able to sleep with the retainer in place however I would advise not to do this unless you have enough skin to work with and are comfortable doing so. Personally I feel an O-rings or the keeper are safer for sleeping and retaining.
