ok so i used tapers up to size 0 in my ears. and then i stopped using any type of stretching tools (tape,tapers,weights). so is it normal to be able to pop in the next size up ever month and a half? there is no pain or swelling. i recently just sized up to 1/2 inch with out taping or using a taper to get there.

that's the best way to go.  you're stretching naturally and not forcing it. 
 
still give it at least a month before stretching again, but it's always best when you can just drop the next size in with no discomfort.

That was incredibly helpful..........Oh no wait you fail cause you're an idiot. At least you could've offered some help instead of being a negative asshole about it.


And I agree with kcir stretching naturally is probably the best way to go just wait it out and if you feel you ever have to force the plug in don't. But nothing at all wrong with just waiting till your ears are at the next size up. But it sometimes will take longer than a month so just be patient and you won't have problems.

Sounds like it's going nicely. If you search, you'll find Uranium Hobo's topic about how to do it properly. He has some VERY helpful info up.

is it healthy to play with stretched earlobes if you have clean hands and your ears have been given proper healing time? cause when im bored i tend to play with my plugs. like when im watching tv or on the computer i play with my ears alot. should i stop or keep doing it or does it not matter.

play with them all you want, they're your ears.  as long as your hands are clean and you aren't too forceful with them there is no problems with a little interaction.

Playing with them is probably what's making it so easy to stretch.

I fidget with mine too, and it certainly helps loosen them up more quickly.

I take mine out and play with them to increase blood flow.

guys,
isn't it refreshing to have someone come and ask for advice, and then have that advice be taken to heart?


dickiemn, i wish every one was like you when it comes to stretching your piercings and searching for the advice and knowledge of how to do it properly...


and yea, it's all good to play around with your lobes if you want... clean hands and all... it helps to stimulate the blood flow and keep the flesh healthy....
if you're dead stretching like that, just make sure you're not forcing the plugs in...
if it hurts, if it stings, if it gets red and irritated, you're doing it wrong...
the playing with your lobes that you're doing it probably a BIG factor in your ability to dead stretch as you've been doing...

just as long as you realize that it's not a race... you don't win by having the biggest lobes in the city, state, country, world, etc....
it's a journey that will be with you life long, so do it smart, take your time, and take care of your lobes... they'll take care of you...

yeah i dont force plugs in. when i bored i tug/play with them gently. but i have never had a stretch hurt. i looked into stretching a lot before i started. i just am a "noob" i guess and i still need some advice as time goes but every one here is super nice and informative witch is a big help and im super happy i found this site.

yea, we can be helpful when we have someone like you...

just stay away from saying 'gauge' when you mean 'stretch'....

i lectured a kid about that the other day he told me he was gunna start gauging and i was like you mean stretching and then i explained it to him that that gauge is the size and stretching is the act of getting to the gauge size he wants, i felt smart.

that's supporter status...

you get it for a set amount of days when you post a modification (i think 3 days or something like that)
or you get it when you donate money to the site, depending on how much you give you get a certain amount of months...
it allows you more access and a few other things...


if you go to the main page, on the top right, you'll see a 'help out' button... the details are through there...
