Mr. Limpy medium
Related to: 
i am curious as to if there are many other guys who don't pack?

i packed for over a year and stopped and now i am starting again after buying the mr. limpy medium.

i find personally i am comfortable either way but i am wondering if many other guys just don't pack some days or ever.

I'll pack if I know I'm going to be in an area where people might brush up against my crotch or if i feel like a pair of pants makes my lack of a bulge very noticeable but i mostly feel it's a hassle and the presence of a foreign item in my pants usually actually makes me more dysphoric so i almost never pack

so you are deciding to do that? i have only known one other guy who has thought about it. i used to wear mine around the house all the time but until i get a better harness i cant. i just find it weird some days.

Deciding to do what? Pack or have phalloplasty? I guess I've decided to do both but I don't feel like i have much of a choice dysphoria-wise.

Don't pack in most situations, however, typically, when I am feeling sexual, i.e. a pick up scene or in the bedroom, it's great to feel that type of prowess. I find that packing can make me feel more self conscious than less (the intention for most). I think that there should be better options out there, mostly smaller. I would feel more comfortable if there were better pack 'n play options out there.

I don't pack at home, it's confidence boosting but I'm really comfortable with my roommates and I don't really need the minor inconvenience of a sweaty crotch lol. When I go out, I prefer to pack, especially if I'm around people I don't know. I have a Mango XS packer that I use for normal outings, and a Sailor in caramel for more active outings. I prefer the Sailor for active stuff because it strangely smells SWEET and I've noticed I get less sweaty with it, I'm not sure why. If I can avoid a BO sweat wrecked groin at a party, I will haha.

phalloplasty. i can understand dysphoria wise wanting to do that, i do. very much. and my fiance is ok with it, which is great. but i worry due to the surgery now and the things they are able to do and not do so far. but i still have a LOT more research to do about it.

that is awesome that you are comfortable enough with your room mates. haha, it smells sweet, huh? interesting.
yeah, and a sweating crotch... always great. can only imagine how tough it must be on men with the actual thing. haha

there are a decent amount of options but i do know a lot of the major options are very expensive when it comes to the actual things most people would wear.

I don't, generally I wear baggy enough pants where I don't think it makes a difference

I packed before I went on T, but rarely pack since I started getting some growth (partially because I hate that sweaty feeling, partially because my packer got damaged - d'oh!).

I pack sometimes when out...or just to make myself feel what it feels like...but it is not needed. I am more a constant binder than packer...

I pack 99% of the time, although I didn't before top surgery and being on T a while. The key to packing is getting a good harness setup. I just use a simple homemade one and it works great for me.

I very rarely ever pack. It's usually only if I'm wearing a pair of particularly snug pants where not packing would be really noticeable. I'm usually too paranoid to pack in case it falls out or shifts uncomfortably, and every time I have I've usually felt a little more dysphoric than I would have been not packing.

There's a lot of misinformation about phalloplasty floating around. It's really not as bad as people make it out to be. I just had it last month and my results are more than satisfactory for me. The recovery is hell but if i had to do it over i'd make the same choice.

I do sometimes, but mostly it's just kind of weird. It's not a part of me and that's kind of depressing and creepy to me. If it's really important for me to pass, I will, though.
I also have problems where it pulls my hair/moves around? Argh. It's such an imperfect fix. Darn chromosomes.

Glad I'm not the only guy who feels this way at least somewhat

I have a packer I love, but I don't pack, in general. Sometimes I do for special occasions/dates, but really it's situational. I just tend feel self conscious when packing; having to adjust or wonder if my bulge looks too big, if people notice it, blah blah blah! But around those I'm dating, I occasionally like to wear it!

I prefer packing, but only in public. Generally when I'm at home, I take it off and don't worry about it as much.
