Ron Low - circumcised at birth in 1962 - demonstrates the application of the TLC-X foreskin restoration tugger with its new stainless collet. The collet replaces the former collar and set screw. The advantages are:
- there are no set screws to lose.
- the collet geometry interfaces more securely with the tugger handle.
- a narrower Your-Skin Cone could be used since the screw is not sticking out.
- using rubber bands would require a separate wire clip (not shown here)
- tightening the collet requires strong fingers.
The foreskin plays an important role in normal function. The skin that is commonly removed in circumcision is imbued with thousands of specialized nerve endings, highly sensitive to light touch. The restored skin protects the glans and adjacent mucosa, keeping these parts supple and sensitive. The normal or restored sheath of slack skin provides a mobility that lets the skin glide during intimacy and manipulation, affording the natural mode of frictionless stimulation.
Non-surgical foreskin restoration involves tensioning the skin which induces the skin tube to grow longer so the surviving skin can function somewhat like a foreskin. Although there is no evidence that specialized nerve ending organelles regenerate, those nerve endings which remain can function more as seemingly "intended" by nature because the skin sheds thickened surface layers, stays moist, and slinks around to cause a bending and straightening of the skin which the nerve endings are seemingly "designed" to respond to.
