Hello Martin, I have been trying to stretch my foreskin and have been using marbles for awhile to gauge the progress, but I have been keeping it from my girlfriend cause I’m not sure how she would take it. Anyways I tossed out the marbles but have recently been using lighters (strange i know) but seems to be easy enough to use. I can get three to fit inside my foreskin with little discomfort and leave them there for 30 minutes up to an hour, then i take a break and watch my foreskin flower fall back into place, then i put them back in for another half hour or so. I have been doing this for the past two weeks and haven’t seen to notice any increase, I always feel the same discomfort when i initially put them in, but that tends to go away within a minute.
I was wondering should my foreskin gradually become more stretchy this way? Should I eventually be able to get another one in there, or another object of a greater size? I search for information on foreskin stretching but all i can seem to find are articles about restoration which clearly is not my problem.. I enjoy the look of a long loose foreskin.
Interesting endeavor. Foreskin stretching is very similar to foreskin restoration. It’s all about new cell growth brought about by manipulation, such as stretching. Skin expansion is a common procedure to grow extra skin through controlled mechanical overstretch, which creates skin that matches the color, texture of the surrounding skin. What you are doing, either with the lighters or any other object that stretches the skin just slightly beyond its normal limit, will eventually achieve the results you want.
It’s not a pain free exercise. You actually have to stretch the skin enough to slightly tear apart cell tissue in the area, at which time new cells form that makes up the new skin. Some believe this can be accomplished with the entire penis, though that remains controversial and could be dangerous. If the lighters appear to be working, the idea is not to try to add a fourth lighter too quickly, as this is likely to be beyond the limits of how much your foreskin will stretch, but rather add something with a smaller diameter, say something between the size of a toothpick and a pencil. It may help to also leave these objects in for longer periods of time.
The following picture shows the seemingly unlimited extremes of skin stretching.
If an individual’s skin elasticity and vascularity allow, most piercings can be stretched far beyond their initial size. Anywhere from 0.3 in 0.5 in is normally given as the “point of no return” for earlobe piercings, as over this size there is a significant risk that the hole will never shrink back to the size of the original piercing. Many variables affect whether or not a stretched piercing will return to its original size, such as the length of time taken to stretch and the amount of time the piercing is fully healed at a particular size. One would think this also applies to the foreskin.Pin It
