Alright, well today I bought some PTFE tape for my 10g lobes, because I would prefer to stretch them a bit with tape, and then stretch with a taper, it just seems easier to me. (Well this would be my first time doing it Dunce)


Anyways, I only had it in for probably 5-6 hours and when I tried to take it out it was really hard to get out, I had to get the lube out Eye-Popping

Then the tape was all gooey and super thin and nasty...

PTFE tape is just not for me I'm assuming?

Is there anyway to get bondage tape besides a sex store? LMAO! Bang%20Head


Thanks!

did you use oil with it? likeeee emu oil? because shoving your 10g jewelry with a wrap or two of pfte tape isn't ideal. the oil will make it easier to slide in and out. Why did you want to take it out after only 5-6 hours? Have you read the thread on Healthy Stretching FAQ? If not, it's a very, very good idea.

I used soap and water as "lube". So it slipped right in.
I wanted to take it out because I have heard of it drying your ears and it getting stuck. So I got nervous and had to check.

Yeah, I've read the thread before. I used to be at a 4g about a year and a half ago.

Thank you.

You can buy bondage tape online, just have a search.
If you're in the UK you can get it from ann summers.

Like freckled said, make sure you've read the FAQ on healthy stretching, and know what you're doing =)

The tape will stuck when first put in, but I haven't found it to be problematic. It will ease its grip in a day or two.
It will also seem to thin a bit, but that's just 'cos it's wet. ...aand it's wet 'cos the fresh stretch will emit sebum (?) and such.

I've been using PTFE tape on every stretching in lobes, septum, labret and nipples, and it's by far the best way to do it.

Soap isn't appropriate to use as lube. Get some water based lubricant such as KY or surgilube.
