By reading the post from Brian where as an answer it's shown the two pics of the frenulum, I came to think of posting once again.
I was doing the stretching but then I had other problems and simply forgot all the stretching idea. I must have stretched for 2 weeks when I could observe obviously no retraction yet but the elasticity of the tip of the foreskin had been improved. But then I stopped for some weeks and restarted now (yesterday). However there are two points:
1- I don't if it's my impression but the tip of the skin has now a tendency to go inwards as it is not erected it comes inwards and also a bit tighter when it is there without being touched. Can you understand it so?
I thought it could be just my impression or maybe the effect of having stretched for two weeks and then stopped.
2- The second and most curious point for me at this moment is that I 've now felt more than before what I could understand as the frenulum and sometimes I feel it as a little thick string when I pull the foreskin forward. It sort of became (this past days ) more sensitive or so. Why should I be feeling it more ?
Hope you could understand what I meant by my poor explanations
If you stop after only two weeks, you'll lose everything you gained. The reason is that the skin needs time to grow. While you loosened up the cells to allow more elasticity, there is no permanence in so short a time. Keep stretching until you have full retraction, and then continue for at least another month thereafter. If you find it tightening up again after that, continue for another month.
The frenulum could very well develop greater sensitivity for a short time because of the activity of stretching. Don't worry, it'll calm down once you have the job done.

also slowness in stretching

...i've also found very little effect in stretching the freneulum as shown. I think it is better if you unroll the foresking first and try and get a grip on the band to get a better stretch, but still, mine seems to be very tight, and small and i havent' seen much improovement.
Is there any way to get a continuous stretch all the time(device), as months are well and good but, mentally i seem to have switched off the idea of approaching a woman untill i have things some way functioning normally down stairs.
I've been stretching for 2-3 wks now, and really it still is tiny and tight.
Also, as i seem to need to stretch the opening aswell, is there any way to combine the 2 exercises?
needing patience n advice..awaiting reply?
If you think retracting first, and then pulling on the frenulum will work, do it. The important thing is not the exact technique, but the tension applied to the tissue. Do what works for you.
There is no magic bullet that will relieve from doing what needs to be done, so you may as well grin and bear it. Because the little ring at the opening and the frenulum are actually a continuation of each other, whatever you do to stress either should also create some stress on the other, but by concentrating your efforts on a particular part, you may find faster results on that part. Make sense?
If the opening needs more work, a device is certainly easy enough to make. Just make sure there are no sharp edges, that the material is not easily shattered or broken, and that you respond quickly to any pain that might occur.
It is very difficult to get a grip on the fraenulum in such a way as to effectively stretch it, by grabbing one end with both hands (it's too small, for starters). The problem, as I have explained before, with any stretching method that involves pulling the foreskin back is that you tend to need an erection to do it, and erections are not compatible with discomfort on the one hand, and sitting steadily in one position doing something rather boring, on the other.
Really, you have to grasp the glans on either side of the meatus (pee hole) with one hand, and the foreskin at the other end of the fraenulum. This requires two hands, and a somewhat inconvenient pose. I think you will find it more practical to use the suggested technique of holding the underneath part of the foreskin from which the fraenulum arises, and pulling it away form the body, with the fraenulum "anchored" at the other end to the glans.
I doubt anyone is going to complain of a tendency (negligible) for the penis itself to be stretched in this manner, or to lengthen the foreskin by so doing. And it only takes one hand; can be done without removing the penis from clothing. This means you can do it more often, and for longer, and that is important.
Now, could you do this with a "device"? If you wish to try, I suggest the "T-tape" method (which you may not know, is one technique of stretching a foreskin remnant back to coverage after an undesired circumcision). In this case, you could use a piece of surgical tape to replicate the "pinch" described above - the tape extends from the end of the fraenulum, over the foreskin for a centimetre or so, then away from the foreskin by an equal distance, doubles back on itself and where it meets the foreskin again, goes over the other side for another equal distance.
It forms a "grip" on the foreskin, with a "tab" attached to it to which you can either (alligator or "suspender") clip, or pin a heavy elastic band, the other end of which attaches to - something. Three options here include, a loop of tape or elastic over the shoulder, down the leg and around the calf, or all the way around the waist and looped around the penis itself at the end (which has the side effect of keeping the penis still in the middle).
The amount of tension to choose is such as to still be comfortable after an hour - continuous stretching requires much less tension because it is indeed, so much more effective.
Stretching the opening itself requires a "dilator" shaped so as to automatically stay in place. It needs to be a "bobbin" or "waisted" shape, narrower in the middle where the tight part of the foreskin rests, than at the ends, however it should be fairly "flat" or squat, so that it is no further from inside to outside, than from side to side. In medical terminology, it is called a "grommet". Possible ways to make such a dilator include moulding a modelling resin, or hot-moulding a suitable plastic blank. Possible source objects include caps from marking pens, drink bottle lids and corks, and film canisters.
What is most important, is to make sure there are no sharp or even sharply rounded edges, that it does not react to the skin (it must not for example, be nickel plated or able to rust) and that it cannot break during handling. It should not be porous and able to absorb bacteria either, should be "dishwasher-safe" (which is what I instruct ladies to use to clean their pessaries!).
