Can't buy a TLC-X? (no credit card?)

Hey guys, if you are my age and you want to start restoring, but dont have a credit card or cant buy something. do one of the following:
a) consider talking to your parents... or one of them (mom). whichever is nicer, closer to you, cares the most. this is a serious issue you have with you body and I'm sure they will respect you being grown up about it. however, dont complain to them... just express sympathy for yourself and be like "I really want to correct this safely without surgery or anymore damage, I think this is my best possible way and I want to get started now"

b) if that doesnt work, you are too nervous, or you dont live with your parents... then I would suggest going to the supermarket and getting a prepaid mastercard or visa card, then use that to buy a TLC-X or something. sure you're skirting the system but at least you'll be able to follow your dream of having a wondering foreskin blanket for your glans.

Either way, trust me... if you have any interest in this you mine as well start ASAP because you'll regret not casually wearing a tlc-x to work or school for the next year if you look back then and be liek "damn I should have just done it". you could be done in 6-months depending on how you were cut and how often you wear the tlc-x and what you wear when you dont wear it. (tape, trombone mouthpiece, etc.)

Restoring isnt very intrusive on one's life, take it from me! if it were, I wouldnt be doing it. It doesnt affect me socially or at school, and I just pop the devices off and reveal my lovely fauxskin before changing for sports or gym or swimming. everyone who is cut is like "what the hell>???" then everyone who is uncut is like "he's one of us". nobody has said anything but I know people remember me being cut and wonder... if only I could market this better. :) maybe I should wear the stuff to gym instead!!

Some quotes from blOUCH!

blOUCH is a blog for people to submit their stories of forced genital cutting: involuntary, neonatal, illegally, etc. You name it, people will talk about it.

I have it linked to the right in my link list, but here are some quotes I stumbled on lately that I found moving.

Physically, I haven’t known any different, but I suffered psychologically from the feelings that go with having a healthy part of my body cut off without my consent. I really feel violated by it. I also hate the fact that while discovering sexuality, like all guys do around puberty, involved me finding the scar and being bothered by the fact that I was cut. I don’t think discovering your own body should involve that kind of thing at all. A kid shouldn’t have to deal with that. It wasn’t done for any medical need but because my parents happened to think it was ‘cleaner’ or ‘healthier.’ I really don’t think I’d have had trouble having to spend an extra 5 seconds in the shower to clean it if it meant having my whole sex anatomy intact the way the male body is designed. I find it appalling that the medical community allows this to continue, whose body is it anyway? It still pisses me off to this day and can upset me because it brings up feeling violated and the physicality of it is permanent. I find the attitude some people still have around it a little disturbing like its business as usual. I’m not saying worse things don’t happen, but I don’t get how some people still to this day think that cutting off a part of a healthy child’s penis is normal. Cutting off body parts is supposed to be a last resort in medicine. I really do hope that the doctors will step up and do the right thing on this. Regardless of whatever slight possible medical benefits doctors should recognize that it is wrong to cut off healthy body parts from someone who can’t consent. It should be a individual choice not a parental one. Parents have to decide a lot of things, but permanently removing part of their kid’s penis, when he’ll be able to decide for himself later, shouldn’t be one of them.

Ever since I was seven I felt something was missing. Fortunately, I was one of few who was always able to pull the skin up over the head when flaccid and most of it (very tightly) when erect. I came into my mom’s and her boy friend’s bedroom and said, “I enjoy my peepee’s blanket,” because I enjoyed the sensation of the skin closed over my glands and they thought that was hilarious. Come to find out, God created the penis with a full “blanket.” ........... I watched circumcision and foreskin restoring videos over the past few days. They filled me with rage and I bawled my eyes out from the baby’s screams. According to my research when a baby is circumcised, the skin is originally “fused” to the glands, so the glans is actually skinned alive… come on people… where are your damn f**king brains? Doing that to a helpless healthy happy baby?

My role as a nursing student was to just stand there and observe. Now I am not somebody who gets squeamish or grossed out or anything, and I wouldn’t describe the procedure as gross, I would describe it as torture. It was a life changing experience for me and I need to tell you what it meant to me. I couldn’t believe what I was bearing witness to. This perfect new baby, his legs strapped down to a white plastic board called a circumstraint, betadine splashed on his genitals as the doctor jabbed him with a couple shots of lidocaine. The baby was screaming and as I watched the doctor quickly get to work with her tools a rush of weird sensations came over me. Every intuition in my body was screaming NO! It was like I was frozen and couldn’t move or speak. I didn’t want to look but I couldn’t look away. I watched the doctor repeatedly jam an instrument under the baby’s foreskin to separate it from the glans (which I later learned feels comparable to separating a fingernail from the finger by carving under it with a knife) After she separated it, she was able to cut around circmference of the penis and remove the foreskin. And then she tossed it in the trash like it was a worthless piece of skin. ............ I hate feeling sad when I hear someone is having a boy just because I’m sure they’ll circumcise him. I hate feeling that because as the mother of two little boys, I know that little boys are amazing little people with or without intact genitals. I’m not some “crazy hippy” and parents who don’t circumcise their boys aren’t part of some “tree-hugging cult” or bizzare stuff that pro-circumcision people sometimes spout off because the truth is too painful to fully comprehend.

Pretty serious stuff. There are a lot of uncomfortable people around about this.

TLC-X only now! Proper instructions from me!!

I have honestly just started using the TLC-X only (no more trombone mouthpiece at night ) and occasionally tape when I feel like it would be a hassle.
Its great for school since it only takes an extra minute in the bathroom and I can just pop it off in 2 seconds before sports or swimming to reveal my lovely new fauxskin I am so proud of

The thing that helped me be comfortable with it is that you have to realize that the entire inside part is being tugged at when wearing it. including the part thats between the inner and outer cones. I wear the 24mm inside part to help space the target areas to farther up my shaft and away from my glans' underlying sensitive areas and frenulum. but its probably still being expanded anyway for the reason I just said, oh well it looks great

so basically for the tlc-x just put it as close to your glans as possible and make sure you get the frenulum version if you still have yours (need to know? yours might not look exactly like that but that varies on genetics ). just pull the skin up over the bottom part and inside cone as far as possible so that its snug. If it doesnt stay in by itself at this point when you let go then its probably too big for you but just bear with it since you will simply need to pay more attention when its going to slip off.

So once the skin is pulled all the way over, push the skin up even farther with your other hand and then put the outer cone over it. But dont push it too far. Then, let go, then grab it again, pull the outer cone off slightly, push the skin up even farther but not too far, then replace the outer cone. it should feel very secure. if you caught any hairs, you might want to either do it a third time and then pull them back out of the way beforehand.

So now you have to adjust the " plunger" part. This is easy. Carefully push it downward until you feel some discomfort. At this point, it shouldnt have taken too much, just pull it all the way back out. Then repeat. It should have equalized the vacuum inside your growing sealed-off fauxskin right now and you can move it more freely. So, push it back to about 75% of what you maxed out at before and you should feel tension but no discomfort. Maybe go like 80% if its during the day but i go like 65-70% at night just to make sure it wont come loose or get casually popped off by me if its bothering me.

But like i said you can use this at night if you dont put too much tension on but still put enough that it stays on and is effective. I love this!! trombone mouthpiece was way more hassle, the TLC-X is a great buy
