Instructions : Intact with a Short Foreskin

Dear Valued Customer,

Having an intact penis with a short foreskin can be annoying and somewhat embarrassing when the penile glans slips out from under the foreskin and contacts the rough dry surface of the clothing. When this happens the penile glans is highly irritated and can be compared to getting a dust particle in our eye. The cause of this irritation needs fixing quickly and therefore a grab at the crotch in an attempt to pull the foreskin back fully on top of the glans is warranted. Even in public, which can be embarrassing. Sleeping with a shorter foreskin can also cause problems when the sensitive glans penis comes in contact with bedding or clothing during the night. The penis fluctuates into many different sizes while sleeping causing the penile glans to peak out many times; culminating into the nocturnal erection where the glans can be completely exposed. This intense nocturnal erection is when the glans is at its highest sensitivity level and the irritation from touching the rough dry surfaces of clothing or bedding is so great it will interrupt a good night’s sleep. This can interrupt a very good dream or nighttime experience. ManHood resolves this problem by containing the glans penis under the foreskin through the night. When wearing the ManHood the ManHood itself becomes warm and therefore if the glans does peak out of the warm foreskin it enters into a warm ManHood and is not shocked by a change in temperature.

Being nearly covered by your existing foreskin you will not need Manhood 24/7 but in the times when you loathe being irritated, remember there is comfort in wearing the ManHood. This means you can go about your daily life without the distractions of an irritated penis and the need to pull at your groin will no longer be necessary. Simply fasten ManHood at the base of your penis using the Velcro tabs.

manhoodIn the photo, you can also see how the skin is held on the penile glans (24/7) and how the uncovered portions of the penile glans is protected from clothing or bedding by the ManHood. During the nocturnal erection, this coverage is maintained and the ManHood again protects any uncovered portions so you sleep peacefully through the night.

Your ManHood may seem small when it first arrives because there is some excitement dressing your penis however the size of your penis when out of sight is the size we want to fit. As your penis gets used to being dressed this excitement will decrease and your penis will become easier to fit. This is important to remember: The ManHood can be manually stretched larger if too tight on delivery but be careful not to overstretch. Pull in all directions with little force if a small stretch is needed to a stronger pull if a larger size is needed. Initially, there may be a little discomfort to the size changes in your penis but the ManHood will stretch out as it warms up to form and fit your penis more comfortably as it ages.

To keep ManHood from slipping please ensure the bottom of the penis is entirely inside the ManHood before securing. You can lift the penis and pull the bottom of the ManHood up closer to the base after fastening.

Some of our ManHoods have a cloth or elastic ribbon attached that can be draped over the elastic of your undergarment to help prevent loss in cases of extreme shrinkage. You would want to use this attachment when wearing boxers or during athletic activity and at home, you would not need it, which is why you might want to own a ManHood with a ribbon and some without. Or if you are average or longer in length and the cloth ribbon or label are in the way they can be removed with scissors but not too short as to cut the stitches on the Velcro. If the cloth ribbon begins to unravel it can be heated up carefully with a lighter and the frayed end melted together. These safety ribbons can be requested or denied on reorders.

For privacy reasons, some ManHoods are without labels or size indicators. If you find the ManHood without a label, the original ManHood is 100 percent polyester, the restoring ManHood 95 percent polyester with a little mix of rayon or spandex. The sterling silver and electric ManHoods are 90% Rayon 10% Spandex, the leopard and tiger skin 80% Rayon, and 20% Spandex. The black XX contains some latex so please refrain from wearing it if you have a sensibility for latex products.

The original and restoring ManHood will both retain the foreskin on top of your glans and comfort any exposed glans that slips out of the protection of your foreskin. The ManHood will also comfort any exposed penile glans from bedding or clothing during a nocturnal erection and you will not be awakened by the irritation they cause. However, some prefer the restorer over the original, and vice versa. I use both.

The restoring ManHood’s soft and smooth inner layer will grip your skin helping hold it silently on your glans. The restoring ManHood’s outer layer will absorb the friction in your groin and leave the inner layer to lay quietly on your glans. The outer color will eventually wear away on some of the restoring ManHoods leaving you with a soft skin-like fabric that actually feels more like skin as it ages. For security reasons many prefer using the restoring ManHood when leaving the house as it holds to your skin better than the original. Put the original ManHood in your pocket and rub it in your fingers throughout the day and feel how baby-bottom smooth ManHood is and how the two layers rub together protecting your penis from the irritation it now endures. The outside layer of this stretch ManHood will begin to show the wear your penis used to endure; however, the inside of ManHood will remain soft and smooth as it is protected by the outside layer. The original ManHood is preferred by some for sleeping for its pillow-like qualities and the amazing fact it stayed on through the nocturnal erection.

As you age and the prostate weakens the original ManHood will absorb the occasional urine dribble a little better than the restoring ManHood saving you from that embarrassing wet spot on the trousers. But again, both ManHoods will solve this problem and you will be thankful you are wearing it. Or try our Drip Dry ManHood that was designed to absorb a little more urine dribble than the original ManHood does.

Both the original and restoring ManHood will work in the same manner by protecting the penile glans from irritation while minimizing odor. It is simply a preference for different situations in your life that set them apart. Like one for activity and the other for leisure or sleeping. Like a foreskin, the ManHoods two layers insulate the penile glans natural heat maintaining a normal body temperature. This provides warmth and moisture many times more than when your penis is left naked rubbing against your clothing. You will feel the warmth the ManHood foreskin provides your glans when it is in your hand while urinating, something any underwear will not do.

Since ManHood’s are handcrafted not all the ManHood’s are exact in size as the Velcro placement or cut may be slightly different. This will mean you may prefer one over the other for sleeping and need to experiment to find which ManHood will accommodate the nocturnal erection best. This can be adjusted by not fastening ManHood as snug as you do in the day, or try a different color that may be slightly larger. Or, you may need a larger size on reorder. Considering a nocturnal erection is intense and your penis at its largest size, having the ManHood protect him comfortably in both small and large sizes is no small feat.

While you are learning to wear ManHood


1) Snug it on but not too tight as too tight may cause a pinching of the skin when you sit down.

2) To keep ManHood from slipping please ensure the bottom of the penis is entirely inside the ManHood before securing. You can lift the penis and pull the bottom of the ManHood up closer to the base after fastening.

3) Until you become accustomed to wearing ManHood please wear boxers that fit tightly to your thighs, or wear standard briefs to ensure you never lose a ManHood.

4) Before fastening ensure the Velcro is not grabbing the fabric as this flap of fabric keeps the Velcro away from the skin.

5) Stretch the ManHood larger if the hard Velcro tab touches the skin when fastened.

6) Wear the proper undergarment that will not only help hold a ManHood in place but catch a dislodged ManHood.

7) Sleep in loose clothing or nude to keep your ManHood from being pulled off by tight clothing when the nocturnal erection deflates.

8) If your pubic hair are in the way they should be trimmed. This is also the quickest way to make your penis appear larger.

9) Moisturizing is optional so be careful how much you use because when some lotions dry they become sticky and this will cause the restoring ManHood and your skin to stick together. And whatever you use, dilute with water as this helps the moisturizer be absorbed through the skin.

10) A penis will retract to different degrees when ignored. If this is the case pull your penis out from the base to make it longer before fastening ManHood.

11) The ManHood may initially feel constricting on the nocturnal erection until the ManHood learns the stretch to accommodate it. Try manually stretching the ManHood larger if the erection needs a larger fitting girth.  Again careful not to overstretch and stop fitting the flaccid penis.

Other ways to protect your sensitivity

Ultraviolet Rays: We place particular importance on protection from ultraviolet rays as they damage and eventually kill nerve endings. Sunscreen will protect skin from sunburn but will not protect skin from thickening. In tanning booths, ManHood will protect without tan lines and provide further protection to porous swimwear when tanning outside.

Masturbation: Frequency, duration, and grip all play a part in determining the extent of desensitization. In actuality, after a while of the hand rubbing up and down and over the penis, the penile glans will eventually resemble the look and texture of that hand. So better to keep your hands off the penile glans by using your existing foreskin during masturbation. If you do not have enough foreskin, keep in mind that there are many documented cases where men have stretched their foreskin to this desired length. If you are tightly circumcised use one of the many masturbating devices that are available today.

Lubricating: If you wish to lubricate the penile glans, we recommend using a light layer of extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive is natural, inexpensive, and does not carry a scent. Mix 50/50 with water in a bottle. Shake the mixture up and use lightly on the glans after a shower. The water will help the oil be absorbed through the skin. I also use this mixture aftershave and it keeps my cuticles and nails healthy as I massage the mixture into the hair as a conditioner.

    • “From the ancient time onwards, olive extracts have been used as a perfect natural skin moisturizer and rejuvenator. In fact, most natural skin lotions and creams have olive oil as a major ingredient. Olive oil is rich in vitamins and nutrients extremely good for the skin; they include Vitamin E & A, fatty acids, and minerals. This oil helps the skin in wrinkle removal, softening and smoothening, complexion lightening, and moisturizing. It is easy to ward off dry skin issues and scales formation on the skin with the daily application of olive oil over affected areas.”*

Heat Sources: When in a bath avoid really hot water as it will dry your skin and damage nerve endings. Be gentle with face cloths or loofahs, as they can be quite abrasive. Take the same care when drying with towels. Don’t scrub dry, but allow your glans to drip dry or pat dry with soft tissue. If you like to hang your towel around your waist, first put on your ManHood and protect your penile glans from rubbing against the towel. Shower at will as the water cools by the time it reaches the mid-section.

Cold Sources: The cold causes our skin to dry and chafe. If you live in a colder climate, as we do, it is important to provide your naked glans with protection. ManHood will provide extra warmth by insulating your glans natural heat.

Changing any behavior takes time; like urinating and simply putting your naked penis away. So there may be times when you initially get frustrated fastening a ManHood but before long it becomes routine. So don’t be alarmed when ManHood occasionally slips off or ManHood was not fastened properly causing an irritation, they will stop as you get used to fastening ManHood properly.

Be aware in some cases the circumcised penis will retract more than an inch when it is tucked away in your pants leaving nothing left for ManHood to grasp. In fact, an unprotected penis retracts because it is cold or being irritated and searches for its natural protection, the foreskin. Tragically it never finds it. However, with continued use of ManHood your penis will recover and eventually retract far less because wearing ManHood keeps your naked penile glans warm and free from irritation it now endures.

Washing Instructions; ManHood’s outer layer can also be sprayed with your favorite scent if desired and released each time you use the washroom. The restoring ManHood can often be gently cleaned using a slightly damp face cloth and air-dried without soaking the ManHood. Or gently wipe with a natural sanitation wipe.  Otherwise; The restoring ManHood should be hand washed in warm water and hang dried completely before wearing. Extras are important. The original ManHood does not lose color and can be washed in a variety of ways, but one way is to machine wash them in a trouser pocket and they will also be easily found. If you wash the restoring ManHood in this manner, please be sure the color has faded away as to not stain other clothing.  They both do not need to be washed as often as you might think. Like an intact man, it is more important to keep your penis clean. If you find the odd restoring ManHood with excess coloring (as some colors or parts of the roll seem more saturated than others) please wash it with colors in the washing machine. To avoid having this coloring transferred to your skin some of the restoring ManHoods should not be worn wet or damp until they have been washed a few times and the color faded. If you choose, wash before wearing.

1) Remove for sexual encounters, urinating, or masturbation.
2) ManHoods are non-transferrable.
3) You can snug on a ManHood but be sure not to restrict blood flow. The ManHood should be easily pulled off the penis while fastening. If you feel any discomfort or pinching when sitting down, this is normally caused by the Velcro tab not being fastened perfectly, and the Velcro contacting the skin.

Being a lingerie item, the guarantee only valid if the contents of the bag have not been opened. Please email me if there are sizing concerns. However please remember the ManHood can be manually stretched larger.

And finally, ManHood has survived all these years because of our testimonials. People learn more from stories than being told what to think.
