Is month 3 tough, or what.
I've recently started my third attempt to complete month three, my two previous attempts having been brought to an end by pain and soreness around the frenulum. This time, instead of removing a 0.5cm rod, I removed 1.5cm, which has brought the tip of my glans 1.5cm forward from the tip of the plastic support. What a difference this has made - a huge improvement in comfort without sacrificing effectiveness. Because the nerves and veins around the frenulum are not being stretched and irritated by the pull of the comfort band, as they were when the glans and support were tip to tip, my whole penis feels relaxed even though it is being stretched. Blood flow to the glans is also better.
I am now stretching 1cm past my erect length with no discomfort at all, so if you're having the same problems as I was, you may like to give this a try.
