Online this may look like a regular business….in actual fact I'm someone who is dedicated to the creation of the perfect prosthesis. Sales fund the project - what keeps me excited is the goal.
I want you to get the most out of your prosthesis. If there's a problem - please contact me for help.
A few issues have been reported lately, for those who haven't written to me directly - here are some tips:
Prosthesis is feeling stiff or hard
This is easy to fix by lubricating the inside of the prosthesis. Instructions are in the handbook you received with your prothesis.
Note: when lubricated, the prosthesis feels and looks better, it's much more comfortable to wear. Keeping it lubricated also makes the skin last longer.
If you lubricate with water only, try lubricating with aloe vera gel.
*Aloe vera gel is sold in pharmacies. It is sold as ‚after sun’ or general skin care. 98% pure is what I use. (100% pure does not contain any preservatives – so not recommended to lubricate the prosthesis).
Note: If you lubricate with aloe vera gel only, after awhile there will be a gel build-up in the skin. Use water to wet the gel without adding any gel build-up.
*don't use anything except water or aloe very gel to lubricate your prosthesis. Oil or silicone based products can damage the prosthesis. Water based lubes can leave a plastic layer when they dry out - aloe vera gel just leaves a really dry gel.
Pumping and valve release
First, be sure you have found the exit valve and practiced so you find it easy to release the erection.
After that, feel free to pump to a healthy erection - so it is hard, but still able to bend. In the handbook I warn against over-pumping…but I don't want you to under-pump - contact me if you're unsure.
Note: If you've pumped a lot and it's hard to release the valve, one more quick pump can help you release the valve. Mainly though: be patient, relax, find the spot and press lightly to release.
Knob placement, erection angle
The inside parts move in the skin. This makes the prosthesis comfortable.
When erect: the knob may sit too low, the erection angle too high or to the side. You can easily straighten the erection in the skin/ adjust knob placement. The knob is directly attached to the base end of the insides of the penis. While or after pumping, simply push the knob or the insides of the penis into place. Please contact me if this is unclear.
Fear of "seam ripping"
The seam you see is from the outer form. It is a seam mark, not a seam in the skin. The skin is one single piece of silicone, the 'seam' doesn't look good, but it is not a weak spot.*
Marks on the skin
I photograph and take notes of each skin in order to monitor them. I've been doing that for years - and have developed a very good sense of what to fix and how to prevent problems. I see and remove all weak spots before posting each prosthesis, and record any spots which I want to monitor. If you're worried about something - please contact me.*
*Note: This is a project - the design is constantly changing - I am always making new forms - the skins have inconsistencies, marks and seam lines because the forms are not yet permanent. One day in the future, the forms will be permanent and perfect - for now - that is far too expensive.
Bit sticky after washing
The skin of the prosthesis can get a bit sticky after washing several times. The stick will usually go away after wearing, but you can also powder it if you want to*. Just a little bit is needed to remove any stick - the powder will be absorbed by the silicone.
*Important: If you attach the prosthesis with adhesive, don't powder the attachment plate.
After many months of testing… I'm ready to share the extra hold system. See attachment methods point 3. The Band+
Prosthesis which include the connections for the Band, but sent prior to mid-October must be altered for this next step - Please contact me for instructions. Please - Do not attempt to alter without instructions from me.
Please keep sharing your suggestions ideas and wishes - I'll keep designing.
