I tied my own penile frenulum.

17 Sep

Well, so I did it. I tied my own frenulum.
For a few years I wanted to get my frenulum cut, because of not being able to pull my foreskin back to a point where it’s flat without getting a bent head. I as many others despise going to the doctor, especially with something like this, and so I have been thinking a lot about cutting it myself.
After a lot of research, I decided that tying it up was the best option (either if I so did go to the doctor or not). And yesterday, I decided that I would do it today after my parents left for work. I was rather nervous, I didn’t realy think I would do it, but was confident that if my brother could pirce his lip by himself at 14, I could do this. After all, it is a much thinner needle.

So I found a sowing needle, some regular colorless woolen thread, a flashlight, some Ice cubes, and a shot of DryGin. I went to the bathroom and took a deep breth, and went for it. I put the thread through the needle hole and put it in the glass of Gin. I cleaned my penis thurow, and iced down the frenulum. Pointed the flashlight straight at it, got the needle and located a got spot before I pushed hard.
Nothing happened. I did feel the needle beforehand, and even thru it was new from the pack, it was rather dull. I also read beforehand that the frenulum skin is quite strong, but I was not gona turn back now. I put some force on it and got it thru. At this point I was a little shocked that I actually did it, so with a needle in my penis, I took a deep breath. I was also rather supprised that up untill now, there had been no pain.. I then pulled the needle all the way and up till the point there was only one string in the hole, this action burned a little, but still, not worse then eating spicy food.

Now it went up for my what I had done, I pulled the needle of the thread, and though the gentle tugging did not hurt, it did upset me. So I had to lie down for a while. When I got a breath, I just bent my back so that my man would stay frenulum up, and I tied a knot. How tight I was suppose to tie it I was not sure, but I did find a natural stopping point. Looking back, I think I should have gone tighter, but time will tell if it was enough. After tying a second knot I found a pair of sicssors and cut the strings short. I cleaned up everything and got a small bowl that I filled with warm water I put my man in there (I read that this should be done every day for 10-15 minuts untill the string cuts through and falls off).

It’s about an hour later now, and I have no pain at all. They say there will be some pain the first night.. I guess we will see. But let’s sum up with a few tips:
-Sowing needles are dull, but try to find a sharp one.
-The frenulum skin is strong, be prepared.
-Have a glove or a towel to hold the ice cube, you don’t want numb fingers.
-Twist your penis the way that feels the most natural.
-Have enough light.
Also, people say that cutting your frenulum is bloody business. I have never read this about tying it up and can confirm that there was not a single drop of blood to see, and the pain was minimal.
I will report any events along the way up until the point where the string (hopefully) falls off.

    Yo hi man! πŸ™‚ I’m 15 years old and I got it thru my frenulum skin in less than 7 secs no pain but only a little which I wouldn’t consider pain and liked it feels great but when will the string cut my frenulum how long does it take.

    I never intended for my frenulum to be severed at all but in hindsight I do recall it annoying me how my head was like pulled back by the frenulum when the foreskin was pulled back -.-
    But! I digress, the first time I even heard about the frenulum was when, after a particularly vigorous session of sex with my girlfriend I felt a slight stinging and I looked down and noticed the littlest of tears in the flesh of my frenulum
    ….I ignored it for the next few weeks and then it happened again
    now I realised something was up and read up on it and yeh
    decided that I’d just make sure its always clean and just keep going as normal
    a few weeks later it tore again but more intensely this time and at this point I thought to myself either go to the doctor with this or see if thats all its gonna tear and luckily for me that was it! so now I have a separated frenulum as the result of an entirely accidental series of sex based tearings! :’D

    Im 13 should I do this procedure with the needle and thread or should I wait untill Im done puberty. I just want to get rid of it because it’s embarrassing and I don’t want to tell a doctor or my family

    • MarUlberg November 26, 2015 at 5:19 am #

      I would say wait or go to a doctor. Keep in mind that there is also the option to stretch it, if you have a little patience. Im sure you don’t mind pulling on your penis for a few minutes a day. πŸ˜› Also, don’t be embarrassed to go to the doctor about this. I get it, but if I’ve learned one thing from the reception of this blog it is that this is a common problem.

    Because of this website, I went ahead and tied my own frenulum. I’ll share my experience and hopefully it helps some of you. I tied it twice: once in June 2015 and once in Dec 2015.

    First, some background. I have been doing penis enlargement (PE) for several years now, and while my penis grew, my frenulum did not. The negative effects were sharp pain during sex and a slightly tilted-down head during erection. I did some research and my options were either frenulum stretching or tying it. I figured tying it would be faster.

    For both of my ties, I used fishing line and a sewing needle. That’s all. I threaded the line through the eye of the sewing needle, then pierced through the frenulum. There wasn’t any pain. Now it was time to tie it. This hurt quite a bit. I tied it with a surgeon’s knot and pulled it as hard as I could. This gave me a sharp stinging pain. I tightened it many many times. I pulled it probably 20 times. Then I just let it sit.

    There was a dull pain for the first few days, and then no pain at all. It took about 10 days for my tie to fall out. It doesn’t hurt at all when it falls out.

    My second tie ran in to some complications. It didn’t cut all the way through, so after about 8 days, I started to get intense pain again. I carefully cut the old string and tied a new one. Again, there was stinging pain when I tightened the knot. I just clenched my teeth and pulled it tight several times. The tie fell out in 2 days, pain free.

    After the tie falls out, the wounds heal up in a week or two. After the wounds heal, the skin there is still tender and sensitive. After a 4-6 weeks, it all goes back to normal.

    Now, I get no pain during sex and my glans doesn’t tilt down at all during erection anymore. My foreskin also has so much more extra range of motion than before!!

    Some extra info:

    1. I used to get tension at the frenulum when using my penis pump. Sometimes it was painful, and I would have to stop. I don’t get any of these problems anymore. I also think my frenulum may have been limiting some of my length gains, since I seem to be filling more of the length of the tube now than I was before.

    2. On the first few days of the tie, I stopped all PE. However after 4-5 days when there was no more pain, I started to clamp again. I tried stretching, but it’s hard to get a good grip on it without aggravating the tied area. I started pumping and stretching again after ~6 weeks.

    3. I had no problems with exercise, as long as I wore tight underwear during my workouts.

    Overall, I’d give this procedure a 10/10. I’m super happy with the results, and it didn’t inconvenience my life that much. It’s a simple DIY solution for those of us with tight frenulums.

    • Howard February 19, 2016 at 6:23 pm #

      I tied my frenulum about 2 years ago now and wonder why I had not done it years ago. Beforehand my tight frenulum meant that whenever I had an erection my glans would point down quite sharply, but at least it was not painful. After I tied it and the frenulum was cut through – about 8 days – my glans now sits proudly atop my penis and I feel like I have 2 more inches of foreskin! The best decision I ever made.
      The process itself was pain free for me for the whole time with the exception of inserting the needle in initially. If I were to give anyone a tip it would be to try not to get an erection whilst doing the operation as it’s much easier to accomplish in the flaccid state. Easier said than done though when you are manhandling your penis!
      Now if anyone has any suggestions on how to widen the opening of my foreskin it would be appreciated. I have always wanted to get someone else’s glans in there but alas it’s too tight.

      Congrats! Kevin.
      I have a question for you, I did tie my frenulum starting just under the head shaft. It was a success, no complications. Yet, I have a long, ugly, bulging, flabby frenulum left behind and what is more there is at least 3 mm vein going through below it. Somebody somewhere in this blog mentioned that it was the reason for premature ejaculation and cutting frenulum out of the way.
      So, did you have any kind of issue like that vein underneath? I don’t want to damage and cause unwanted circumstances overall.
      Thanks man.

    • bronxbillyunz (@BRONXBILLYUNZ) March 7, 2016 at 3:10 pm #

      You are the man. I never had frenulum issues until i started doing PE. After 4 months of PE + sex, i have tears and scar tissue. I’m just finding out about tying the frenulum today. I’m definitely trying this out.

  5. Chris February 25, 2016 at 7:30 am #

    I wish I had done it sooner! About ten years ago I pierced my frenulum, and then started wearing a series of rings: started with the usual small gold ring, and then gradually built up to one which was 12 mm gauge and 3 cm diameter: caused a lot of interest on the beach!

    Anyway,I was wandering along the cliffs in the sunshine last year, when i decided that I would add a second piercing for another ring: the two would then knock together as I walked! Went straight home and make the second hole (wiped with alcohol; and pierced with a sterilized carpenter’s bradawl against a wine cork)……that was great! Two weeks later, did another one……one hole grew into the other, so that there were just two small bits of skin between them. I cut those bits with nail scissors – very little blood……and now here I am AT LAST with a cock which is not made to curl over at the end when t have an erection!

    I wish I had done this years ago.

    I did it tonight and I was wondering if after tying the not am I able to pull my foreskin back over my penis or am I suppose to leave it as is until the sting cuts thru and falls off???

    • MarUlberg March 25, 2016 at 10:21 am #

      I don’t think it makes much of a difference. The string will cut through either way.

    • smartalk20 March 25, 2016 at 11:37 am #

      Hi Kevin, having tied my own frenulum a number of time, so that I am able to retract my foreskin fully down the shaft of my penis. I aM really pleased with the results. Congratulations on having tied your own, this is the now the frustrating part having to wait. Don’t be in a rush to attain your goal, I can assure you the wait is well worth the results achieved. With regard to your question if you normally have your foreskin forward then do that. In fact I would say that is the best option, having your exposed frenulum chafing against your underware could cause the cutting site to become inflamed and more open to the risk of infection. I bathed mine every day with either antiseptic mouthwash or hydrogen peroxide 6% and then gave the thread a gentle tug. I am convinced that having a short frenulum was and is one major cause of premature ejaculation. My theory is that that the frenulum being very sensitive due to the thousands of nerve endings is not only stimulated due to friction on penetration, vaginally or anally, the resulting stretch of a tight frenulum will also over stimulate the nerves, making it extremely difficult to maintain control. I would be interested to hear from other guys who have found that tying their frenulum has resolved their premature ejaculation problems.

        Thank you! I was some what worried of it would change the outcome but I actually have another question. My. School is having a dance and well would it be a good idea if I’d be dancing with girls or is that just a big mistake?

      • smartalk20 March 25, 2016 at 8:24 pm #

        Hi Kevin, each time I tied my own frenulum I made no changes to my lifestyle, so I don’t see why it should stop you dancing with girls. I personally would not recommend engaging in sex as there is greater risk of infection but mainly you could risk tearing your frenulum. That is something you do not want, having tore mine in my youth, not only was it very painful but it blead a hell of a lot. At the end of the day only you can decide. Hope this helps

  10. Max March 27, 2016 at 8:19 pm #

    I will definately try this
    but did you have to re-tye the knot or did you just leave it untill the string fell off?

  11. Lorn Welter March 29, 2016 at 1:22 am #

    I made a hole through my frenulum and wore a ring in it for a few years, the hole stretched so I put a strong thread through it and tightened it, in 5 days the thread fell away and my head now pointed straight ahead, later I made another hole farther back, and deeper and wear a ring in it. I believe anyone can and should cut their frenulum., if it pulls the head downward

  12. Benjamin April 15, 2016 at 3:59 am #

    Hi Lorn,
    I wonder if you had a vein issue nearby or under your frenulum. I tied mine last year just below head shaft, fyi; it’s trying to grow back, and before attempting 2nd round I have at least 3mm diameter blue blood vein going under where I target to tie, and kind of hold back right now. What do you think? Go ahead and tie that son of a gun and eventually let it die off or just do next to it. I have a really saggy, ugly frenulum and log way to rim. I will have to do 2-3 (maybe 4) ties.

  13. jml May 17, 2016 at 12:20 pm #

    I had pierced my frenulum and have a hole of 8m diameter. I want to tie my frenulum, so do I have to make two knots one on top and the other at the bottom? Because there is a free space of about 8 mm behind my frenulum .

  14. Mark May 22, 2016 at 12:13 pm #

    This is DANGEROUS idea. I tried myself and dripped my 5-6 drops of blood. I was horrified to look at. DO NOT ATTEMPT.

  15. miha June 29, 2016 at 7:47 am #

    Reading thru the articles, I find no comments on as to where to tie or any signs of unpleasant circumstances or complications. I tied as well: about 6mm from the glans and about 7 mm from the skin fold or the edge of folded skin. I tied with a cotton thread, soaked in alcohol. no pain, no blood, no trouble. after 7 days, however, the part of the skin by the glans swelled, and at the tie became painful. and that to the extent of unbearable pain. There was no vein caught in the knot.

  16. David August 4, 2016 at 9:21 pm #

    Took a decision to tie mine using needle and fishing cord, it took exactly a week to separate and heal, I am delighted with the result it looks great, gained at least a cm in length and so much more sensitive, wish I had read this post sooner..πŸ˜€

  17. Pete September 9, 2016 at 8:11 pm #

    Hi guys, just a general question – how deep do you tie your frenulum?

    • smartalk September 9, 2016 at 10:25 pm #

      Slightly lower than centre I would say Pete. That is what I did several times I think 4 times in all Very pleased with the result. The important thing to remember is “patience” very few people succeed in getting the final result the first time. If you have to do it 4 times as I did you will be far happier with the results. Any problems feel free to get in touch

      • Pete September 11, 2016 at 8:37 pm #

        Thanks for the answer. I’m not sure if I worded myself correctly.
        Did you mean that the place where you tied your frenulum was central in terms of the length of your frenulum, or the depth (i.e. the distance between the edge of frenulum and penile body).
        My question was mostly concerned about the depth. When you say “centre”, how deep would that be in terms of millimeters? Thanks!

      • smartalk20 September 11, 2016 at 9:26 pm #

        Hi Pete

        In answer to your question and in relations to your terms depth (i.e. the distance between the edge of frenulum and penile body).Therefore nearer to the penile body, this will give a good finished result. Hope this helps

  18. sassss September 16, 2016 at 9:26 pm #

    Well I tied mine about two weeks ago (sewing needle and thread) and it still hasn’t broken… There is a visible hole and the other side of the frenulum is beggining to break as well, but I thought it was going to be more quick. I may have to tighten it or something, or maybe even change the thread and make a tighter knot with the new thread. I hope I get this over with asap hahaha

    • Dreadz March 18, 2018 at 10:19 am #

      What happened bro, did it fall out? im going through the same thing lol

    does the frenulum have an effect on sexual pleasure

    • MarUlberg November 13, 2016 at 6:31 pm #

      Yes. Cutting or tying it may lower your sensitivity.

    • Alex B November 25, 2016 at 1:52 pm #

      I Did it 4 years ago, and it didn’t directly lower sensitivity, in fact in some ways it allowed more pleasure, because now the whole underside of my cock in the frenulum area was now exposed to friction and pressure during sex.
      However, one of the reasons I cut it was so that I could tape my foreskin back for extended periods in order to lower the sensitivity, which was a good thing for me, because I always used to struggle not to cum before my wife. Now I can bring her off two or three times before I cum, without having to slow down or think of my mum or any of those other tricks, lol.

      • Alex B November 25, 2016 at 1:54 pm #

        Oh – this is the site I used to tape my foreskin back, if you’re interested? http://www.circlist.com/preferences/feelcut.html

        I also took pictures of both processes, if anyone wants to see?

      • Alex B November 25, 2016 at 3:08 pm #

        here are the two albums, one is my taping back, and one my frenulum tying. sorry if they are out of sequence slightly. hope this helps.

      • smartalk20 November 25, 2016 at 5:23 pm #

        Excellent set of pictures makes it very clear for anyone considering tying their frenulum. So simple but so effective in resolving the problem Thank you for sharing

  20. Ricardo Haswell February 3, 2017 at 12:39 am #

    The material is extremely interesting.|

  21. Alex Y March 25, 2017 at 8:21 am #

    I did penetrated the needle through my frenulum in less than a minute, I’m surprised the its not very painful as I expected, the frenulum did really stiff and rubber, I have to use alot of strength to get through. so I tied as tight as I can as I feel the pain. I had a question, how long to I have to change the thread? Im afraid that I did not tied tight enough. I did feel abit pain after several minute, its pleasurable pain. Am I doing it right? How to do it take to cut through the frenulum? Thanks for answering!

    • MarUlberg March 25, 2017 at 9:29 am #

      For me it took 9 days before it cut through. If you feel like it isn’t tight enough you can do as I did and open the knot and try to re-tie it, though depending on the string you used that could be quite a challenge.

      • Alex Y March 25, 2017 at 9:40 am #

        Thanks for the reply, I have another question, I got slightly little pain, its that normal? cuz when i get thru the needle its doesnt bleed. and should let my foreskin cover it or just let it out?

      • MarUlberg March 25, 2017 at 9:57 am #

        I can remember some slight stinging every once in a while, but not sure I would call it pain.. May just boil down to you being more sensitive. I mostly kept the foreskin over it, but if you have pain you may want to keep it out or at least make sure you clean under there a few times a day.

      • smartalk20 March 25, 2017 at 11:26 am #

        Hi there having achieved my desired results after four tyings i would say everything appears to be going smoothly for you. If you tied it really tight to cause pain and discomfort then it sounds as though you had enough tension. I used nylon sewing thread which has elastic properties for each of my tyings. This allowed the stitch to contract as it cut through the frenulum. Mine would sting from time to time but this was a result of the stitch cutting further through my frenulum. I use to bathe mine twice a day with antiseptic mouthwash and then give the not a gentle tug. I also kept it covered with my foreskin to stop it chaffing on my underwear. I have no doubts you will be pleased how neat the results will be. As i said it took four tyings before i achieved my desired result but was well worth the effort and patience.Hope this helps

      • Alex Y March 28, 2017 at 4:43 am #

        its been 2 days now since last time Im tying, I notice that its cutting from outside in, its that normal? and the thread are starting abit lose, do I need to change the thread and tied it more tighter?

      • smartalk20 March 28, 2017 at 5:56 am #

        The most difficult and whole essence of this tecnhnique is patience. From what you describe it soumds as though your latest tying is progressing nicely so unless the knot is obviously loose then leave well alone and exercise patience, you will not be dissapointed with the final result.

      • Alex Y March 29, 2017 at 1:26 am #

        ok thank you for answering, its been day 3 now, there nothing happen so far. I hope the result happen anytime soon cuz right now I really impatience..haha

  22. Lanzz February 18, 2018 at 8:58 am #

    Help me out. Where exactly should I tie the string?. Plus can I use regular sewing thread and needles instead of nylon to do the procedure?

  23. Dreadz March 20, 2018 at 8:32 pm #

    Where do you put the second tie? Oh and what angle are you supposed to tie the knot? vertical on the frenulum or horizontal on the frenuluml. Im assuming horizontal? just dont want a little flappy patch of remaining skin between my ties. Or how did anyone else deal with theirs? What happens to flappy dead skin? Cheers
