Phimosis: Homemade device for stretching similar to 'gentle foreskin stretcher'?

Most stretching techniques I've come across so far suggest manual stretching with the fingers. So far, for about a month or so, I have been stretching while masturbating. I just pull the foreskin back and forth for a few minutes while erect before I masturbate to completion. This has had some effect I think but not that much. Mine is a mild case of phimosis as far as I can tell from other cases. I can pull it back over the head fully now, just about, but it's still tight. The last couple of times I've had sex I pulled it over the head while putting condom on and was able to have sex with it retracted. I wasn't able to do this before and the increase in sensation was much appreciated .

It's still not able to glide over though and when I am really hard (rather than 3/4 erect) then the tightness of the skin is noticeable and uncomfortable and/or causes the foreskin to 'snap' back over the head into the unretracted position.

What I want is a DIY gentle foreskin stretcher. I am trying to think of things that will do the job. The manual stretching I find too tedious and of small benefit to be that effective so far. What I think would be best is to be able to place different sized objects inside the penis head and just leave them there while I continued whatever I was doing around the house. This means I wouldn't have to 'hold the position' leaving my hands tied and so it would be much less of a chore to do. Don't get me wrong i don't mind it being a chore if I was getting results but so far the manual stretching has proved largely unfruitful for me. I think this 'autostretching' would be a much easier option cos I could leave some sort of object in there stretching away for hours at a time, not too long of course to overstretch, and it would not be fiddly.

I am just trying to think of good objects that would fit the bill and hope some of you might think of some. Currently I tried stacking up several coins and wrapping them in cling film and putting them in the penis head but that hasn't proved successful as the shape was not appropriate. I'm thinking a circular type object would be better. Perhaps marbles or some other ball shape, some children's toy ball or something.

Any other ideas?

An inflatable device would be the best like the gentle foreskin stretcher but I'm sure there are more practical solutions which I could use right away if I could just think of them so fire ideas my way.

Cheers.

Re: Phimosis: Homemade device for stretching similar to 'gentle foreskin stretcher'?

Thanks for the reply.

Well, as I said I can pull my foreskin back all the way just about when erect so I guess about the thickness of an erect penis, although it's REALLY tight and so I think it would have to be something a bit smaller than that for now and also would prob help if it was tapered to some extent.

I can pull it back so it stays but this isn't practical to do for long periods considering I'd need to keep an erection for that time and have my head exposed.

So fire away with your recommendations; thanks.

If you just list some different objects with respective gradients I can try them out and give you a more accurate 'reading' once I have tested them.

Re: Phimosis: Homemade device for stretching similar to 'gentle foreskin stretcher'?

Select the appropriate size pill bottle then saw a 1/2 inch circle, round off the edges for comfort and insert under foreskin. You can wear it under clothing without being conspicuous. Be careful when you stretch that you don't tear the skin. That will result in fibrous unelastic foreskin that will continue to tear when stretched. Consider having the phimosis ring removed (partial circ). If you go that route make certain the surgeon understands you do NOT want a full cut. I went that route about 15 years ago and have no regrets. Foreskin still completely covers the gland. Good luck

Thanks for the tips on the pill bottle.

I definitely don't want any kind of surgery.

I think if these rocker guys are stretching their earlobes, as with the original african tribes, to extreme sizes then it should be no problem to do a little adjustment with my hood once I find the right tool for the job.

Re: Phimosis: Homemade device for stretching similar to 'gentle foreskin stretcher'?

I was thinking that something which has a O type shape yet is pliable enough that I could fold it into the opening of the foreskin easily and it would 'snap' back to it's original O shape would be ideal. Something which is pliable yet also maintains its elasticity to stretch the foreskin...

Any have any thoughts?

Re: Phimosis: Homemade device for stretching similar to 'gentle foreskin stretcher'?

I have exactly the same symptoms as you do - can pull it down but pain during foreskin as it's still tight.

Were you able to get something working? Let me know..

Re: Phimosis: Homemade device for stretching similar to 'gentle foreskin stretcher'?

Hey guys,

on and off I'm currently using this device which was originally intended to remove CPUs from your personal computer. It is just like a large set of tweezers the width of an inch or two (the size of a CPU). I have stretched it out and put cling film over the bottoms of it and use it in reverse to stretch the skin.

I haven't been doing it every day and have slipped a little with the regularity. It isn't ideal as ideally I'd like something I could place on there and be left stretching while I continue about my day. Currently I am left immobile while stretching which is what causes me to skip some days.

So it's the best I've found yet.

I still want something comparable to the gentle foreskin device. I'm thinking it might just be easier to go for that product as it isn't that expensive and it's taking so long to find a similar alternative...

Re: Phimosis: Homemade device for stretching similar to 'gentle foreskin stretcher'?

Hi Natura892, I would strongly recommend you do not try any old thing. The foreskin is an extremely senstative and fragile part of your anatomy. It can become torn and infected and infections can range from mild to serious and in some cases life threatening.
You should consult a doctor with experience in managing a tight foreskin or phimosis. They will provide treatment advice based on evidence. Todate, the eveidence suggest that Gentle Forekin Stretching with a device like the GFS is suitable for many but not all patients. Therefore, prior to trying any old thing and risking serious side effects, contact your doctor or at the very least only use a technique or device that is certified. < edited >. There is also much evidence to support gentle forskin stretching and a steriod.
Good Luck.

Re: Phimosis: Homemade device for stretching similar to 'gentle foreskin stretcher'?

Hey all,

I created my own home-made device for stretching my foreskin using 4 connector textas and some rubber bands. Did the trick with my foreskin after around a month of use. This will only work on mild forms of phimosis, or after you have managed to get the foreskin to move past the head of the penis.

< edited >

Usage:
You'd first squeeze the tips of the two bottom pens together to make a "V" shape < edited > You then roll back the foreskin over the head of the penis and then roll it forward so it covers the bottom of the two pen. From there you can then adjust the width that this stretches by releasing your grip on the pens allowing them to move apart, and once you foreskin can cope with that without problems, widening the gap between the two bottom with either your fingers or another object to increase the stretch.

Hope that helps.

Re: Phimosis: Homemade device for stretching similar to 'gentle foreskin stretcher'?

^what are connector textas? I did a search and I believe they are pens right? Must be an american thing...

I have kinda been slacking/not slacking! (lol pun not intended there) on this front as all the devices I've tried they have been so awkward to use it makes me lose motivation plus I haven't had a shag in a while which has also made less immediate cause for motivation .

So I stopped anything for like two months but recently started pulling the hood back while masturbating. I dunno if it is making much progress with that alone. I still wanna find something which is easy to put on and keep in place; that is the main sticking point here. I also see the official gentle foreskin stretcher is like 150 aus dollars which is too steep plus would have to be flown over from aus. It's frustrating cos the stupid thing is only a simple device so there MUST be many similar things which could be made ad hoc but wracking my brains nothing has come up.

As an aside, the porn actor Ben English is a prime example I found out theother day of a natural hood in good working order.

homemade gentle foreskin stretcher...

I've just been looking at pics of the official gentle foreskin stretcher and it's components seems little more than a couple of balloons and a syringe- all for the premium price of 100 australian dollars.

Now I see what it consists of I think it would be easy to make one myself so I'm gonna try this out in the next few days and will report back.
