There are many ways to tuck, such as pushing the penis* and testes* between your legs and pulling on panties, to tucking the testes* inside of you.
Why do people tuck?
People tuck for many different reasons. You might tuck in order to feel more at ease in your body, more comfortable in your clothing, and to facilitate being read by others as your gender.
How do I tuck?
If you just want to tuck your testes* and penis* between your legs, the arrangement can be held in place with tight panties made from materials like firm spandex, lycra, or microfibre.
Some people prefer to tuck their testes* inside of themselves. The goal here is to gently push the testes* into the inguinal canals. There is an opening to the inguinal canalThe pathway by which the testes* are able to leave the abdominal cavity and enter the scrotum* before birth. at the base of each testicle*. The opening has about the same diameter as a finger, though it can stretch.
Using two or three fingers, gently lift each testicle* up into the scrotum*scrotum* (with an asterisk) is used to acknowledge the many different words that are used for this body part. and through the corresponding inguinal ring. Go slow and trust your body. This process can take time. You can do one testicle* at a time or both at the same time. Some people find it helpful to get in a tub of cold water before tucking.
It shouldn’t be overly uncomfortable. If you feel faint, nauseous, or in pain, stop and take a break before trying again.
Once the testes* are tucked, some people tuck the scrotum* as well. Others wrap the scrotum* around the penis* and secure it there with tape. After taping, keep a hand firmly over the base of your genitals to prevent anything from slipping back out.
Then the penis* can be pulled back between your legs and everything can be held in place with tight panties, tape, and/or a gaff (a garment that flattens the lower part of your body).
If you plan to use tape, medical tape is safer than duct tape because it breathes better and is easier to remove. Removing the tape may be more comfortable if you shave your pubic hair first. If you are having difficulty removing the tape, it might help to soak the area in warm water.
Is tucking safe?
We were unable to find any research on the risks associated with tucking. Anecdotally, some people have reported pulling or tearing sensitive tissues in their genital region during tucking. This confirms the importance of going slow and listening to your body. Medical supply stores carry medical remover which may be helpful for removing build-up from tape. If you have concerns about the safety of tucking for you, talk to a health care professional.
