Tucking

Recommended Posts

Guest Angelgrlsue

I know this subject has been asked many times on here but I wanted a fresh approach on how to go about tucking with ease. I use to wear pantyhose and two pairs of panties to keep things smooth, ever since my cancer surgery and having to wear a Urostomy bag on the outside of my abdomen now, I am unable to wear pantyhose very well, not allowed to put any friction on the bag or could cause some serious issues.  Just wearing two pairs of panties is not doing it for me.  I know that Brenda posted a sticky on this subject and tucking the testicles into the cavities of the abdomen, I have not tried this yet, but my question is, once they are tucked up their, do they drop back down or how to do keep them from dropping back down?  I have used a gaff and it is too uncomfortable.  Any suggestions or answers to my question would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Susan, 

i typically use a one size two small pair of panty hose with the legs cut off over panties. This is enough to keep me comfortably tucked and to keep my testicles from dropping back down. I'm lightly built, so this may not work for everyone. without the hose they'd definitely drop back down on me.

hope this helps!

Depending how extreme you want to go, there's snug underwear, pantyhose with the legs cut off, or medical tape. But keep in mind that medical tape + hair down there = lots of owwie at removal time. I'm sure there are other ways, those are just the 3 that I know of.

It was a worry for me about testicles not readily dropping back down again, but then I remembered that at really cold times I had sometimes noticed they retracted anyway so were almost there. In practice I have not had any issue, except for the scrotal sac having a tendency to peek out the sides of panties. I think the key is to be very gentle and not force anything. Take it in easy stages as you explore. I have found with time that it is very comfortable and it nows feels very strange not to be.

I usually find a well made pair of panties keeps the testicles in the cavity. The majority of the cheap / thin ones don't so, although Ok with leggings or skinny jeans, if I am wearing a skirt or dress I wear very secure panties or tights (even though tucking is less of an issue as there is less show). With the penis under the body, when in the cavity the body shape comes to resemble the female form more so panties fit better at the front so if the fabric is strong there everything tends to hold in place better.

Thank you for your suggestions, I did not think about cutting the legs of the pantyhose, that might be something to try, plus the tighter fitting panties.

If you try the tape I highly recommend KT Tape.  It is expensive, but by far the most comfortable tape you can use.

I had some difficulty tucking.  Shape wear of almost any type helped but i learned that for me the best idea was to simply wear clothing that didn't emphasize a smooth crotch.  I wore skirts instead or long shirts that hung below the offending area.

I guess I use a hybrid method. I first put on a pair of stretch panties that are one size too small, then I tuck. The round bits are small enough now to fit up into those canals so it isn't a problem. Then I put on a pair of compression underwear, high on the waist, lower than boy shorts on the thigh. Then I get dressed. I can wear relatively tight stretch jeans and not detect anything, but I usually wear shirts that come down pretty low just in case. As long as I'm not very active, this works well for me. But if I'm bending over or crouching down, basically using my lower abdominal muscles, then things move. Usually it's a matter of things popping out and popping back in again as soon as I stop using the muscles. It can be disconcerting, but not painful. And it's a hell of a lot less disconcerting than the dysphoria I get if I don't tuck! I can even wear yoga pants without too many problems, but I don't like the look of things so I ALWAYS wear a long shirt.

Before HRT, tucking was painful, difficult to maintain, and NEVER looked right. I say this only for other girls who, like I used to be, are looking for more information. ;)

I don't tuck because touching that part of my body isn't an option for me.

I just wear clothes on which tucking is not mandatory.

Hi Clara,

I am curious why touching that part of your body in order to tuck isn't an option for you? I know I am not found of that body part on myself either, which is why I am on the path for surgery. However, especially after being on HRT for almost a year now, tucking has become easier. It also opens up the types of cloths I can wear too.

Hi

My problem is mental. Tucking requires some manual manipulation to do it properly. That part disgusts me so much that I avoid touching or even looking at it. I just can't it's too hard for me. I try to live like it's not here. 

In the toilet I just put one finger on the basis to pee, that's the only case where I have contact with that thing. As I have a big belly I don't see the horror when I look down.

I am never naked.. never.  

I know that I have to give up to wear some clothes because of this. That's sad but I also know it's temporary

I know the problem although I have never had too much of an issue as I tend to be very pragmatic about things. It is one of those facts which tends to point me into the belief of me being more androgyne than MTF as I keep tucked pretty much all the time, preferring my parts out of sight and mind, but have also never liked large breasts either. They would be just as bad. Like most people, I live with what I have and make the best of it.

For tucking, I use a gaff. But as I am more of a home body, I don't tuck while at home anyway. At home I do wear a gaff to hold everything tightly in place. Then over that I wear panties for cd's and pre-opp tg's that have padding in front to cover up the bulge a bit. It works ok as any bulging looks like a fat bulge instead of a "you know what" bulge. I wear these panties even when tucked. That way if things should start coming untucked, I won't suddenly have a tell tail bulge. When I tuck those things up into my abdomen they make kind of a fat bulge anyway, so there really isn't too much difference for me when tucked or untucked.

Happy tucking:D!LOL

 

Lots of love,

Timber Wolf?

      Here we go again Carolyn!!! You throw meaningful articles out there that usually result in really good  debates, thank you !!!   I have read two books by Jen Boylan and she is as real as they get. I also like that she's from Maine !!   The listed article really hit home while reading a quote from Kristen Beck, “What you wear, what color you are, your religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity has no basis on whether you are a criminal or not.”  Yes indeed. I support Eric Snowden and the courage it took for him to expose unprecedented abuses of power by the United States. His motives were clear, his intentions were more than obvious. Perhaps I still need more understanding,  but I have yet to wrap my head around the motives and intentions of the information released by Chelsea Manning...??? All I do know is that there is a sea of negativism surrounding her  and now her unqualified run for public office.   I spend hours every week at the  VA hospital attending LGBT group meetings. The horrible comments and ridicule I see on a weekly basis toward our transgender Vets walking the halls is unmatched by what I have experienced in public. A good friend straightened me out on this. He says the VA is filled with  right wingers. Yes it appears this is true. Since this whole Chelsea Manning running for Senate thing started it has gotten even worse, trust me!   I have posted on this site previously  that I merely wish Manning could be grateful for being free and go live a quiet, happy  and public free life. Jen Boylan echos this. I oh- so- admire the piss and vinegar Manning has but she is in fact a convicted felon embodied in a sea of perceived public hatred.   Like the hateful Vets at the VA, I don't think we will ever change their minds about accepting trans humans. . Not in this lifetime. Say what you will but it is my true belief that we need positive examples. Though she's not my favorite but Kristen Beck is right up there. Retired Navy Seal that served with honor and distinction. The author of this article, Professor Jennifer Boylan is another. This list goes on and on, doctors, lawyers, politicians, successful entrepreneurs . I support Chelsea manning as a trans woman and human being. I do not support her for a  Senate run, and her public exposure merely adds fuel to the fire of hatred already directed toward innocent trans people like me and you ......   In the brutal world of public opinion there is a saying; "Its not what you are but what people think you are."  I love and deeply respect our transgender community. You will never find such courageous people as represented in the transgender world. We proudly serve in  every profession, military branch, labor force and service industries. We never ask for recognition or a pat on the back, all most of us want is to be allowed to live our authentic lives free of murder, rape and ridicule.  Is Manning helping that cause?? What is your opinion??   Sincerely,   Tess

      Thanks for your thoughts and especially this, Laura Beth. Many of us may have faced clues along the way and didn't understand them until much later in life. It wasn't until I came out to myself, with the help of a therapist, that the confusion I faced throughout my life finally made sense. And yes, the future is brighter.   Gwen

      Ms. Boylan has such an honest rational voice.  Manning's candidacy may or not be helpful for our community.  It may go nowhere but she does have every reason to be angry. In my opinion did little more than was done by reporters in the past who were actually able to report what they saw during Viet Nam rather than only reciting what they were told by the military.   Many may not agree with me about that and that is fine but allowing us to see some of the atrocities of the war was in some ways an heroic, if illegal, act.  That being said i'm certainly not sure that makes her any more qualified for office than being a slumlord in NY does.   Hugs,   Charlize

      One of the great advantages of going to a therapist was having an opportunity to remember and share a lifetime of experiences similar to those you describe.  Somehow being open and honest was a step i needed in finding the strength and confidence to follow my path.   Thank you for reminding me of my past as well as sharing your own.   Hugs,   Charlize

      It all gets a bit complicated at times   Here it it a standing joke about not having to see someone's medical records to know their issues, just sit in the reception at the doctors surgery and listen to the receptionist! Not really funny, but it happens a lot.   For me it is a daily thing as I am not planning a namechange etc in the near future, but only occasionally gets too much. Its always going to be easier wth one name and one gender.   Tracy

      Hi, Although the basis of my meditation come from a book on Buddism the spiritual aspect of my life is based around being thankful for what I have and for the people I know and to participate with that which is around me the basis of which is understanding and practicing love. i like Buddism a lot but prefer if people use their own words when conveying something.  If I had the determination and attention span to read the Quoran and find a Master I would say I would align myself with Sufism but that's not going to happen so I have to be content being an Abrahamist with Big Book leanings. This is not my own words but sort of in fact. Love God (your version) and treat others with kindness and love:) The rest is commentary. Reading this made things easy for me. In light of the simplicity I feel that spirituality should not possess an inaccessible quality to it.  Why I like Sufism is the belief that "love is the highest station of the soul."
