sorry for adding this question to this thread... but maybe you can point me to some useful resource:
I've been looking for information on how to tuck for quite a while but couldn't find the right pages/texts/videos so far..
So just in case you have some resources where one can actually learn on this topic i'd be really thankful... because the way i do sucks as well
The basics of tucking are pretty simple -- we're trying to tuck the REALLY dangly bits up and out of the way so we can tuck the other dangly bit back farther than normal.
The best description of the process came from a website that I can't find either, or at least not today, but it went something like this: "It might not hurt to start with a nice, hot shower to make sure that everything down there is as relaxed as possible. Then, after drying off, get your gaff (or tape -- ewwww!) and squat down on your heels. The idea is to tuck the testicles partway back into the holes in the pelvis where they were before you hit puberty. Push them up gently, wiggle them around slightly, and eventually you should figure out exactly where they should fit. Try to hold them in place while you stand up...."
and then it's just a matter of pulling up the gaff and then tucking your penis back between your legs. An extra layer like tights or pantyhose will just help hold everything in place even more.
In theory, if you did it right, you should be left with a nice flat front or at least a minimal "bulge" that will allow you to wear a tight skirt or dress.
Now the downside to tucking -- it's NOT comfortable. It shouldn't be TOO uncomfortable at the beginning (and if it is, you're probably doing something wrong) but it's never going to be as comfortable as sitting around in your favorite male underwear and sweatpants.
In a best-case scenario, tucking is going to be SLIGHTLY uncomfortable at the beginning -- like getting LIGHTLY kneed in the groin -- and as your body gets used to it, you should be able to mostly just forget that those parts are compressed more than they probably EVER will be in male clothing.
(As a couple of websites I read last night point out, even after you've mostly forgotten about things down there, if you're out and about and doing the things that normal people do in public, there's a good chance that at some point you'll move in a certain way -- getting in or out of a car, or sliding onto or off of a chair or barstool -- and there will momentarily be even MORE pressure, so try not to look too surprised when it hurts for a minute or two.
So if it's not comfortable, why are we doing it? It's the same sort of compromise that women (and therefore we) make with a lot of clothes, and shoes, and hair. "Is it worth being uncomfortable, or unable to run, or take deep breaths, or taking all that time or spending all that money? Yes, because it LOOKS SO GOOD and/or feels so sexy!"
Tucking isn't fun or terribly sexy. Wearing a tight and/or fetishy skirt AND looking good in it? THAT can be fun!
All that being said, I don't bother "tucking" unless I'm going "out" and fully transforming. If I'm just sitting around the house in a skirt, or planning on any kinky BDSM fun, I'll just settle for snug (not tight) underwear, a moderate bulge, and/or a looser skirt.
