Day 3

I've improved my taping method. I'm still cross-taping, but I've started cutting holes in the tapes. This way, I don't have to take them off to urinate. It's saved a lot of skin irritation already - it almost doesn't bother me at all anymore.

Here's the method I've been using:

  • Cut two lengths of tape, roughly 3" to 4" long.

  • Cut two more lengths of tape, roughly 1/2" to 3/4" long.

  • Stick the shorter pieces of tape to the middles of the longer pieces. This produces a "non-sticky" portion of the tape which will go over the tip of the glans (you do NOT want to tape this part - trust me!).

  • Fold this non-sticky part in half length-wise and use some scissors to cut a whole in the middle of each piece.

  • Pull the skin forward as far as it will go without hurting, but with mild stretching.

  • Use the two pieces of tape to secure it in place, placing them at cross angles to each other. Make sure the two holes line up over the opening of the urinary tract.

I currently have to pee sitting down because I don't quite have the aim I used to, and I have to clean up with some toilet paper afterward (much like women do). However, it saves a lot of skin irriation, so it's well worth it!
