Default Medical Aspect of Tucking

I'm doing some searching about different methods of penis tucks and how to do them. The one I favor most at the moment involves 'pushing' (for lack of a better word) the testicles back up into the inguinal canal that they originally descend from during puberty. From what I've read, this doesn't hurt and can be done fairly easily.

However, I have a question or two. Can you do damage to the testicles using this method? Can they get 'stuck' (again, for lack of a better word) in there if you do it improperly? Are there any medical reasons to not do this style of tuck, other than the chance of effecting the fertility level of your sperm?

The art of being a cross-dresser or 'drag queen' typically requires a smooth area 'down there' when wearing clothes in order to complete the illusion of being female. Not all cross-dressers do it of course, some leave things as they are.

A few years ago, I asked this question to a female impersonator- what is known in the drag community as "tucking", "gaffing" or "hiding the candy". The answer depends on what you're wearing and the size of the variious parts that you need to hide.

If you're wearing a skirt, usually two pairs of panty hose are enough to hide your equipment. You bring the first pair of panty hose up to the top of your thighs and you just push everything backward ("tuck") toward your butt while you pull pull up the panty. Then you put on a second pair of panty hose to hold everything in place.

If you're wearing slacks or a tight skirt, you can use a special panty called a "gaff" which holds everything in place and smooths out bulges.

If you're wearing something very form-fitting like a leotard, then you need to do a little more work. This is where the testicles are pushed upward into the abdomen, the penis is tucked toward the butt with the gaff panty or with tape and the scrotum is pulled to each side of the penis to create the illusion of the female genitalia.

Guys with shorter penises when soft or who have a large pubic fat pad may not have to tuck. Guys with longer penises when flaccid may need to use medical tape, duct tape or gaffer tape depending on what color their outfit is.

In very rare cases, it could create a condition called "torsion" that constricts the blood supply to the testicle. But it is not uncommon for the testicles to slip into the abdomen on their own in cold weather or when you are wearing underwear that is too tight.

The testes normally fall back down on their own as a result of gravity and the relaxation of the cremaster muscle (yes, there is a muscle down there). If they "get stuck" you just push them back down with your thumb and index finger (we occasionally have to do this with infants and children who still have open inguinal canals).

As long as you are doing it for short periods of time, it should not affect fertility.

But again, it is only necessary to do a full tuck when you are wearing very tight clothing. If you're wearing a non-clinging outfit, you should be able to hide your candy with double panty hose or a gaff panty.

what the hell is a "sheman"? do you mean a transsexual woman? are you really that ignorant? if you are, I'd suggest educating yourself, or else you'll have a mob of angry trannies on your ass.

a 'sheman' 'shemale' or similar name is known in the porn industry (especially with hentai) as someone who has breasts and a penis; a transexual woman would not have both as far as i understand.

It's more than possible for a MTF woman to have both, if she's in the process of transitioning and hasn't had bottom surgery yet. And a lot of people in that position find that term pretty offensive. I found a piece of advice yesterday I think is pretty sound:
"Ok, when in doubt: of the descriptive terms available to me, which is the one most commonly used in porn titles?
And then don't use that one."

yes its possible in transitioning and i was fairly sure that part of the transition doesn't last long because of hormones stopping the breasts or the penis removal surgery. (sorry for not a proper term)

but id like to point out a major point; i CHOSE to use the most commonly used terms for readability; i wanted it to be understood by the majorities so i used the more common terms.

Wow, I'm really sorry. I'm sorry that you are so misinformed. How many people (much less people medically transitioning) have $40-50,000 sitting around their house that they can just have SRS whenever they choose? Very few transsexuals. Most transwomen have to be in therapy for months or years, have facial feminization surgery, electrolysis, take hormones, and after all of that don't have money for genital surgery. Some even choose not to have surgery.
[Sorry to the OP for taking this thread hostage, but I'm sure that you can understand my intentions.]

This thread is a bit off track. If you want to continue the discussion about gender dysphroria and SRS, I would be happy to split this thread into a separate thread so that you can continue the discussion.

The term "shemale" or "sheman" is considered to be offensive to many transgendered people. Terms like this that are used in porn advertisements are not terms that you should use to describe people in the real world.

The term "cross-dresser" or "transgender" are the more accepted terms to use.
