Desperate for packer/stop advice!!

Recommended Posts

KC

I have been researching for months trying to find the right stp/packer. I am aware that everyone has different anatomy so what works for some, may not work for others. There are a few that I'm interested in but I can't decide. Please list anything that are somewhat affordable and that you all may recommend.

Iver time I spent hundreds of dollars on things that just didn't work right or pinched and looked ugly baby doll colored to boot. Finally broke down and got a silicone STP from T-Men'sJunkShop and have now used it daily for 3 years or more.

I use the Che while is the same size as the average American male- and since most of us are built smaller anything larger tends to draw unwanted attention. I use the attached funnel one and have heard the new detached funnel isn't as satisfactory but you can still get the attached on request.

It has a soft funnel and looks highly realistic as well as being comfortable. Because it is different from anything else it can have a learning curve to master . You have to find and get the feel of the sweet spot so to speak where the funnel sits when in use. When you do it sits and feels natural with no uncomfortable or unnatural bulges etc like the FreeTom.  And is so realistic I have used it with no qualms at urinals in crowded men's rooms. In fact it has come to feel like a part of my body and filled a need I did not realize I had. I forgot it one day when I went somewhere and felt naked and emasculated all day.  For me it is a prosthesis and in replacing a body part should be as realistic and functional as possible.

The other plus for the T-Men'sJunkshop is that delivery is very fast- less than 2 weeks and everyone who has dealt with them has been impressed by their customer service. They care . BTW it is a little pricey but less than half of other silicone STPs and packers and silicone is cheaper in the long run because it wears much, much better than anything else and is much more realistic.

I sure hope so! I wasn't sure if this was an appropriate topic for this site but I'm really in need of some help and guidance on this subject.

This really helps! I checked out the che and I've never seen one so realistic! The price isn't to bad, I'm just nervous about the attached funnel. Being a guy and not being able to stand to pee is bad enough not to mention, if I have serious leaking problems. Lol I think I'm going to try the che. I've seen a few of your comments on this subject and you have mentioned it several times. I guess anything new will have a learning curve, just hope that I can master it. In the beginning before you mastered using it, did you find that you had to do some major "adjusting" before and after urinating?

I practiced in the shower which helped - and at first also wore a thin pad for any slip ups.

I believe there are videos for use that are helpful. I didn't watch them but other guys have said they help. . I did start using it hiking in the forest after practicing at home. No one out there but me.

One of the things that helped me is thinking of the funnel as an  extension of the urethra that would be there. The end of the funnel goes just past the urethera and the rest makes a tight seal the rest of the way. It sits between the labia when you use it but it only takes a second to fit in place . I keep one finger over the tip to maintain the seal.  Not uncomfortable because it is soft. As long as you keep that seal it works great. However I have found it helpful to control the stream and not wait too long when I know I need to go.

Thank you very much! I believe I have made my decision! I really liked the freetom products but I'm a small guy so I didn't want something that would look unrealistic while packing. I do appreciate all of your feedback...it has really helped!

You are welcome. I have a FreeTom sitting in a drawer right now. Someone gave it to me and I tried it but hated it. It is really bulky compared to the Che and not as realistic. That's just my opinion and experience. Others like them.

I do have one more question, JJ. I am a small guy and really nervous about the funnel on the che. They have one that is similar on the website that has an interested funnel system but it is an inch bigger. I am about 5' tall and 110 pounds. Would you mind going to the website and taking a look at it and let me know if you think it would be too much? I'm sorry for all of the questions but I haven't had any help on this subject. I was getting ready to make the purchase and noticed the Leo and I just want to make sure before I buy it.

I meant the Leo has an INTERGRADED funnel system.

The Leo is new since I bought the Che and I like the that integrated funnel . Haven't used one like it so I cant eay for sure but it looks like it would be as comfortable and work as well.

Size is a bit bigger than the Che true, but is still within average male norms. I thought the Che was originally described as 4.5 inches rather than 3.75 so mine may be the same size as the Leo. Makes a natural but not obvious bulge. I'm 5'5".

Just measured it and my Che is 4.5 so they are making the Che smaller now and the Leo is the size I have apparently. Should be fine depending on what you are comfortable with.

Ok so just a quick update. I just received the packer/stp from TMen's Junk Shop that I purchased a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to give my thoughts on the over all product and it's function in case other guys may be looking for some direction. I purchased the Leo 4.5 in 2 in 1 Caucasian packer/stp. I have to say, I am blown away with the realism of this product. They nailed it in my opinion! Hands down, this product is better than any of the other ones I have seen and for a cheaper price. Only down fall I had was that it wasn't stp ready as stated on the pamphlet. I had to alter it just a bit in order to test the stp function. It appeared that a piece of silicone blocking the opening at the tip might have gotten missed during production but no big deal. The paint job is incredible and the stp function is super easy and is intergrated which I also love about it. I had never heard of the company until someone on here told me about it and I'm glad they did. THANKS JJ!! If you can't afford hundreds and hundreds of dollars on prosthetics that you have no clue will work...check out TMen's Junk Shop! Hope this helps!

 

Cheers,

KC

Glad you like it so much!

I'm always afraid I sound like an advertisement for them but what you get for the price really is way better than anything else I've ever seen.

If you ever have a problem I've heard they are super easy to deal with and will make it right - I've known of one guy who had a defect in alignment in his and they made it right immediately.

Thanks for letting me know and sharing your experience.

Johnny

      I have had a couple of super high readings several years ago, and they went down after a seeming peak at one point.  My endo went so far as to see if the Lab had had problems because it fell like a rock in a week.  Other than lab error the real reason was never determined.  Sorry to say.
    • Carolyn Marie
      Follow-up: Detroit PD and prosecutors have arrested and charged a suspect in this crime.  A motive was not divulged.   Kudos to Detroit PD for the quick work on this case.   https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/detroit-city/2018/12/10/charges-filed-slain-detroit-transgender-woman/2273251002/   Carolyn Marie

      First off, i want to assure everyone that I have talked to my endo about this, and she is concerned and pro-active, and I feel confident that she knows what's up.  Just the same, I'm curious if anyone has had experience with this rather, um, unusual problem.   I had what should have been routine blood tests for T and E, as well as sex hormone biding serum globulin.  Well, the results were startling; the SHBSG was almost three times the highest range figure, and the estradiol LC/MS was also three times higher than the reference range high point.   I've been on HRT for nearly 8 years, and this test, and the one 6 months ago, are the first to show that kind of result.  The doctor asked me to stop the estradiol for a week and get retested.  If it doesn't go back to something approaching the normal range, the doc is going to start looking for reasons why my body is producing that much excess estrogen. The risk of not getting it under control is obvious; much higher risks for DVT's and damage to my thyroid gland.   So, anyone have results like that, and if so, what was the cause?  Thanks, gang.   Carolyn Marie

      Thanks. That is the result of several years of training maybe more if you consider the four years of Clearanet playing in middle school and high school.

      Very good!!!  Have fun.

      Well you could certainly order on-line.  JC Penney currently has some great prices on jeans, then add in a discount!   I like to try things on in the store but finding jeans (tall) can be hard when I look for something specific.  But this time I knew what size I needed so I ordered a few pairs.  Use the Size charts and read the comments to assess if they run large, small or true to size.  Use your hip measurement rather than waist to determine the size to order.      The other place is to look at thrift shops (not consignment, they can be pricey) or Goodwill.   I find a lot of neat things.     As to Undies, just go to Walmart or Target.  No one will care and you can get what you need.     
    • Shannon
      Thank you for your responses. Any suggestions on my current clothing issue?  
    • Carolyn Marie
      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Shannon.  I agree with colleagues re. your post.  Getting totally absorbed with being female and feminine is something most of us have gone through.  It can be wonderful to explore all the aspects of being a woman.  But it is best to take things one step at a time.  It is a marathon, not a sprint race.   Please have a look around the forums and comment or ask questions wherever you find an interest.  We're here to help.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Her story is like mine and had no regrets with her transition.She was lucky,had support from her two older brothers whom are still in her life.Mom had a tough time with it at first and her mom came around.Her dad was the with  her mom.We have a great friendship starting and invited me to go out with a couple of her friends Friday night whom are also transgendered.I said yes to it

      Yeah. People do definitely get sick of the adult teenager.  🤣 but I think it’s important for us all to do. You have to get it out of your system. And learn what’s good and bad for you. Nothing like squeezing a lifetime of learning into a couple years!
