Ok so I feel its time to tell my success story, I hope it gives people hope. Before I started stretching, I could retract my foreskin fairly easily when flaccid but it would require a fair amount of pressure to retract when erect whereby it would then get stuck behind the glans. Basically to stretch my foreskin I started off using the finger stretching exercises explained throughout this forum. I started to lose motivation fairly early on as I didnt feel they were having much effect but, rather than give up I decided to look into alternative stretching methods. Using flesh tunnels, I have managed to increase the diameter of my phimotic ring from just less than 30mm to around 38mm after approximately 11 months (with some breaks here and there). Obviously the great thing about using tunnels is that you can just leave them in place for long periods of time and go about your normal routine. I now have the full gliding effect of my foreskin, as nature intended.
Here are my tips on using flesh tunnels. I always use wooden tunnels and order 2 of every size. I then glue them together as the bigger surface area allows them to stay in place, 1 tunnel would always pop out at some point. Most of the time I would need to get an erection to be able to get the tunnel inside my foreskin and sometimes I would also have to use tape to hold it in place. As explained a number of times in this forum, the time it takes for new skin to grow varies but on average I reckon I was able to increase the size of the tunnel every 2/3 weeks by 1mm. More recently, I have started to use the cardboard from toilet paper tubes to increase the size of existing tunnels, rather than buy new tunnels.
Its easy for me to forget how hard it has been over the last 10 months. I guess my explanation above makes it sound easy but believe me it has been tough and I felt like giving up on a number of occasions. It takes real motivation and serious amount of perseverance but hopefully my story is proof that stretching does work.
I couldn't find all my old tunnels but some are shown below.
