Right around Christmas I began applying Povidone Iodine to my penis 1-2 times every day in the interest of dissolving and repairing collagen scar tissue accumulated over years of uncautious clamping and poorly practiced PE. My interest in doing so is twofold. 1 to soften the fibers of the tunica and enable me to achieve better results with any PE that I continue to do, and 2 if possible, to heal an old injury.
My EQ has varied quite a lot in the last years, mostly not bad overall, although I’ve had a soft glans for as long as I can remember, although I believe it stems in my particular case to a clamping injury that I foolishly didn’t let heal (do not be like me). I’ve written about this elsewhere, but for the sake of clarity, my corpus spongiosum quite abruptly ceases to get firm at the exact point where I used to apply my orange cable-cuff style clamp. This flacidity extends al the way up into and throughout my glans. It doesn’t affect my ability to have sex, but obviously is not something I would prefer to live with if there is a chance of undoing the damage I did.
I figure I might as well try to share my findings with everybody here, as I haven’t been able to find any other threads detailing a longer term and consistent trial with Iodine. I was messing around with DMSO, and I’ve been messaging with a user here who assures me of its safety, but I’ve been scared off of the stuff due to its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, at least for the time being.
Anyway, my procedure has been to apply a light coating of the iodine on the full circumference of my penis in the morning.
Today let’s say is about two weeks and so far I can’t quantify any concrete changes that couldn’t easily be explained by placebo, but I think I have noticed an increased pliability when doing my PE routines. No concrete changes with the soft glans or spongiosum.
I’ll keep better track of the timeframe from here on out, but for all intents and purposes, this’ll serve as day 14.
