Everything I Know About TuckingWritten by Dawn Summer in Transgender Resources Diary
I can sum up everything I know about tucking in a tiny paragraph. However, given the amount of requests this page alone receives on the subject, You probably want more. In the sections below, I detail who, what, when, where, and why, as well as how. I also included a few tips, tricks, and bad ideas I learned from first hand experience. Hopefully, this post provides you with whatever you need to feel confident tucking.
An Introduction To Tucking
Cross-dressers and transgendered people care the most about tucking to present as a woman. Tucking consists of precisely what it sounds like, tucking your package back between your legs! Whenever someone wants to present as a woman, they tuck to hide everything effectively. Some keep it at home, but others explore dressed completely en femme. It just feels really good for a variety of reasons to have a skill like tucking.
Everything I Know About Tucking Well
This may sound silly, but if you want this to work you need to remove all of your body hair from your neck down! You need to remove your pubic, crotch and butt hair for sanitary reasons. The rest just looks weird if you leave it.
Tuck Your Testicles
When you were a baby, your testicles resided deep in your abdomen just above your inguinal canals. As you began walking, they escaped and fell into your scrotum. However, those canals don’t close up! To begin your tuck, safely ease your testicles back up your inguinal canals into your abdomen. If you feel any pain, STOP! the little pouches don’t hurt, but if you go farther, you can cause a hernia. A hernia occurs when you rupture your abdomen and your intestines fall into your scrotum.
Wrap Your Scrotum
With your testicles safely tucked away, you now have an empty bag of flesh to play with. Gently wrap it around your penis like you would a hot dog or taco. This also begins the natural slit at the base of the top of your penis. The illusion you want starts here.
Complete The Tuck
Now, carefully pull the penis burrito straight down and back towards your anus. Squeeze your legs together, and your entire package should feel securely comfortable. Congratulations! You’ve tucked your package and created a feminine illusion.
At this point, now you just need to pull up your panties to keep everything in place. You have several other options for making this work, and you can read those below. In the meantime, I hope you find this guide useful!
Tips, Tricks, and Bad Ideas
I first thought up the idea of using feminine sanitary pads early on in my experiments. By placing a pad in an ordinary pair panties, you reinforce the crotch, making them better suited for tucking. Pads also absorb moisture exceedingly well, keeping everything dry downstairs. I now buy them regularly to use when I am en femme for extended periods of time.
Medical tape presents another interesting alternative. It features a strong bond that adheres to your skin without tearing at it. Some tapes even come in clear, so you can tape things down discreetly. Eventually, I want to post a series of pictures another friend of mine took, but they take a little while to track down.
Doctors created cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive specifically because super glue sucks on skin. Commonly sold as Dermabond, you can use it to create a semi-permanent bond for secure tucking. To remove it, all you need is petroleum jelly. Simply rub the jelly into the skin and peel the adhesive tissue off. With a little practice, you can create a very convincing vulva that stays even if you get wet and naked. AVOID USING SUPER GLUE! I beg you!
A popular site for cross-dressers sells special undies called Gaffs. These were specifically designed to hold everything in place with sensual satin. The same company also provides “men’s” panties that were specially cut to accommodate male anatomy. Both of these options keep everything neatly in place. This especially helps if you happen to have a smaller package.
Really Bad Ideas
Methyl‐2‐cyanoacrylate or “super glue” began as a clear plastic for use on guns. Medics tried using it in Vietnam to seal wounds, discovering that it causes acute, chronic skin reactions. As super glue breaks down, it transforms into formaldehyde and other nasty chemicals. In other words, AVOID USING SUPER GLUE!
In my personal experience, superglue absorbs moisture as it dries, and then begins to crystallize. The result looks neither feminine nor pleasing. Instead you end up with a very painful bond that dissolves over a period of about three days. If you attempt to un-stick it, you run the risk of severely damaging your most sensitive skin. If you try to dissolve it, you end up using even harsher chemicals. Overall, using super glue shows severe lack of mental faculties. You should go see a doctor.
With everything I know about tucking, I happened across the idea to use duct tape once. Again, thinking I should try for science, I carefully followed the instructions of a loon. Duct tape aficionados claim that you can use it on your skin for just about everything, I disagree. At first, I admired the nice smooth curves it created.
After I finished dressing and began moving around, the duct tape began tugging on my delicate skin. Eventually, it even caused an erection that began pulling the tape away from my scrotum and getting my panties in a twist! I went and found a restroom, and tried fixing it at first, then ripped it the rest of the way off. OUCH! it felt like waxing, except without the benefit of actually removing any hair. So I chalked duct tape up as just another really bad idea.
