Day 1

I started today. I haven't taken any measurements yet. I haven't had time, but I didn't want to wait until I had time to document it to start the process. It's going to take months, maybe even years to reconstruct a foreskin around my penis, and I'm not going to put it off.

I do intend to document its current state soon so that I can keep track of my progress. I hope to post that over the weekend.

I purchased an e-book copy of The Joy of Uncircumcising this afternoon, since it's out of print now. I think some of it's a little out of date, but it's still a good place to start. It was well worth the $10 for the detailed descriptions of the process of uncircumcising.

Still, I think this is going to require more than a little trial and error. I've decided to go with the "cross tape" method to begin with. As far as male genital mutilation goes, I'm fairly lucky. I wasn't cut too closely. In fact, I can already stretch my skin to cover about 80-90% of the glans. I think I may also have a somewhat intact frenulum, although I'm not sure of this. It's kind of hard to figure out these things from looking at drawings.

I left work early to try it out, I was so excited. I've had my glans covered for about 7 hours now.

I can already tell you one thing for sure: what I've read is absolutely correct about the comfort. Although the tape itself is a little uncomfortable, the glans is far more comfortable when it's covered. In just a few short hours, I can stand up and tell you clearly that this is the way it was meant to be.

One problem I've suffered for over a decade almost completely disappeared in the space of a few minutes. You see, I've never had pain from my exposed glans like many men report. But it has been very sensitive, and that's had an altogether different result: a near continuous state of arousal. Imagine what it would feel like to have your genitals stimulated almost constantly, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 days a year.

I always thought I had bad self control because I couldn't even think about sex without an erection. The only erection I've had all evening has been in the presence of my fiancee (whom, by the way, has been absolutely 100% supportive and wonderful, and I can't thank enough). And sorry, but she's hot! If I'm not getting erections around her, something's very wrong. ;)

It also does already feel somewhat more moist, as I've been told it should. I just can't believe I'm feeling benefits already. I expected to wait weeks or even months without noticing anything. This is so encouraging.

I intend to try a schedule of 12 hours a day of stretching, five days a week. I've read that this is the best schedule since it gives your body time to heal in between, and it's consistent with what I know of stretching muscles, which I would think is very similar. However, to get started I'm going to wear it pretty much all weekend. I'll start my 12-5 program on Monday, but I don't want to stretch for just a few hours today and then stop. I think I'll lose everything I gained from it.

Tomorrow I plan to post detailed mesurements of exactly the state I'm in right now so that I can compare against it later.
