Ftm Prosthetic Design

Hi, I wonder if you guys can help me?

I am looking seriously into designing and manufacturing the ultimate FTM penile prosthetic. I have extensive experience in making prosthetics professionally for a whole range of purposes, so I will be giving this venture my undivided attention.

So what am I looking for? Well I need feedback from you guys about what you would want from a prosthetic and also what you wouldn't want! As much market research as you can give me!

Firstly I need feedback to tell me how important the following elements are on a scale of 1 to 5 for each one, 1 being the least important, where a penile prosthetic is concerned.

Range

Range

Realism

Dual use

Shaft and testicles option

Glue on

Strap on

Stp option built in

Vaginal use

Anal use

Additional support

Cost

Anything else.....absolutely anything you've experienced you thought was rubbish and needed changing or was brilliant and is worth including in a new prosthetic? Is glueing them on a pain or no big deal if youre careful for example, or what stops you from purchasing one if you don't have one already?

Any and all help and responses would be greatly appreciated and test samples may be available for free to those giving useful information at this stage.

You can email me any thoughts back directly at ratfink55@hotmail.com

I look forward to hearing your thoughts and appreciate you taking the time to read this post and hopefully reply. Many thanks

So every time I've tried looking for a prosthetic, I can never find the one thing I want. A duel use realistic prosthetic with a built in stp that can be glued on. That is exactly what cismen can do with their penis', so why can't I do that with mine?

I am 33yrs old FTM - pre T and Surgeries because I have thyroid leukemia and cannot afford transition for now... I am looking for a decent quality soft packer that is affordable. Maybe $20-$40 range. I like the kind that have balls that don't make the bulge too big, more of a natural soft appearance. I would even take a defective one as long as the color is good. Have any? or know anyone who does?? My b-day is coming soon and I really want one <3

Hello, my English is not very good. I'm trying to formulate short and precise .It is very important that the penis is hard! All I know from the shops is rather soft and flabby . One **** is hard. It is not something hard but totally hard in the middle. He should have only a soft coating and be soft to the glans.Then he should not be too long . It is not good to be guided by *********** . If he has 13-16 cm, you can wear it comfortably and erect yet well hidden under clothing.He should be a little thicker. I think the girls like it that I hear again and again .The skin coating should be really good , so it is slippery . I think a major problem is that the labia is pulled in bad material even when sufficient Lubrication repeatedly inside. For women, this is painful.It would be nice if it looks so real that you would not have to constantly come out as trans man .And it would be good if something would be on my side, that helps me better to feel pleasure.That would be the key points in my opinion. Greetings from Germany! Axel

This is an excellent packer info below for pricing and additional info

I don't kmow if you're still going ahead with making the ultimate penile prosthetic, but I sure do hope so. I'm a transgender man who transitioned 10 + years ago and I can personally say that anything would be an improvement on what's being offered us today. I almost feel as though our transmale community has been forgotten altogether by the medical community. Maybe you could change all that with your expertise. It hurts to know that there are possibilities out there that could help us to lead more fullfilling lives as men, but it seems that there aren't enough people in the know who care to do anything about it! I don't have the skill or I'd do it in a heart beat. I have some great ideas, but that's about it.

I know speaking for myself, it would be nice to have something that is harness free and of course something that feels and looks as realistic as possible. I know that goes without saying for most transgender men. Also something that doesn't smell like rubber or like it was mass produced in some factory. It would also be nice if it was a duel prosthetic we could ware flacid and then also use to enjoy sex with our partners. It's terribly hard (no pun intended lol) to be spontanious with your partner when it comes to sex, when you have to stop everything just to exchange your packy for a poor prosthetic that smells and feels like cold hard rubber. Not very sexy at all. It would also be nice if it were water proof and if a better glue were developed, so that we could enjoy a swim without having to worry about it falling to the bottom of the pool. Most cis guys never have to worry about those kinds of emotionally issues and I hope they never do. It's very hard to endure day in and day out and I'm hoping that there is hope out there. Maybe you're that hope. Anyway, just thought I'd chime in. Hope you can take the penile prosthetic where no man has gone before. Good luck! :)

I have had my duel for bout 9yrs, roughly. I got it from aus. Color was pretty good. I do wish to have 3-d balls. Makes it more real. It was slightly heavy in the shaft for the gul not stayin on all day to where it would fall off or it would get stuck up in my briefs. Made sure I weard briefs cause one time i made the mistake of boxers and it almost went to the floor. I would like it lighter but weight makes it good for when ya want to have sex. Feelin thick was good feelin know my partners I had never knew it was a proses. Said I was the best lover. Something that when urself gettin wet doesnt "liquidfy" the gul (meanin ya get to wet and it falls off due to that).

I heard a couple sayin they didnt like the "hard on" look when just packin and I didnt either but some females like the idea I was a stallion, if ya know wut I mean ;). I wish that a heating sensor that knows your gettin ready to get it on and the duel gets a erection on its own...would be nice.

So I think a prefect one would include:

prefect look to packing but a sensor to erect your duel when ya get into the mood.
A STP would be nice, but dont understand how someone would be able to pee slowly on a size of a spoon when ya got a full tank or it just sprays instead of trinkles down, ya know.
Not heavy, but some weight is ideal
3-d ball sack.
Color chart to choose from
and not to exspensive!


I spent 1,400 for mine, yes it has lasted this long. Its fallin apart and makes it different to havin sex but ya have to stop cause its fallin more apart, ya know. So, it makes me feel should I spend that much money again on somethin I was pretty ok with or buy somethin thats half the price but doesnt look right cause the head is just so bulker then the shaft.....Esp when ya tryin to save up for top surgery. Makes it hard.

There are also more packers from the same company above that can be used for penetration

a dual would be great and the smell...most guys know how a regular strap on smells....ugh...this would be groundbreaking ...also able to pee thru it ...also some type of hole for the little man to fit in when attached...so looking forward to this

Considering how intimate the item is and the use, realism is key. la<x>yering colors rather than just a flat color. The feel, how it needs to be firm for use yet soft like skin. I've seen some info on some dual use piece that can be pumped (the pump is in one testicle the release valve in the other) which seems like it would be a much better option compared to my AU one that is just too bulky outside of play. I always wonder why the hair can't be stitched into the tab itself like movie masks and other props. It would be more natural than a sheet of hair over the top. The tab should taper to the outside edge so that there isn't an obvious ridge where it ends. This would also mean less pulling on the piece by clothing, meaning a better hold.<br />
<br />
An optional or removable knob for the wearer would be a nice possibility since some guys want that some don't and you could change the size.<br />
<br />
I'm willing to pay for high quality but it has to meet the need. Some basic warranty would be a big thing since if I am paying a significant amount of money on something I don't want to have it break on me during normal use in less time than it took me to save up for it. My AU piece tore the first time I used it and my only option would be to pay the full amount for a new one. If I can get a refund on my glasses just because I don't like the color I don't see why a prosthesis designer can't work with me in the event of a defective product.

i too bought an au prosthetic and found it way too heavy and just did not look real. The adhesive pulled my skin down and the "hair" that came with it was so fake. Lost some money on that one. Live and learn.

Movable skin. left that one out by mistake

i think realism is the MOST important factor. Function being a close second. It should sit and move properly. It should feel as close to real to the touch as possible. And i mean it. <br />
<br />
I think the ideal would be something thats damn near perfect realism, that can be worn all day, used as an STP device, used for play, that feels and looks natural, for use in locker rooms and group showers. Glue-on is key. And a pubic hair option to cover the tab thats glued on. In ALL hair colors, not just brown and blonde like some companies. And the hair should properly cover the entire area where it connects. I think the ability to change sizes when flaccid and erect is a serious plus. Ive only ever heard of one that can do this. But one is better than none. So it IS possible. 3D balls are essential. Idk who's dumbass idea it was to only make half the balls. Also, the colors of the prosthetic itself should not fade with the first few uses, as do many. If youre gonna be charging hundreds of dollars, it needs to last and be durable.<br />
<br />
Also, if you could figure out a way to make it *********, then it would just be perfect. But as far as i know, thats not really possible. but maybe youll find a way! <br />
<br />
Good luck and i look forward to trying your product =]

Guess I'll throw my 2 cents in. I am also an FTM and would not have a problem paying extra for a good product. I mean really, how do you put a price on a good ****! Would love to know where you are in the process.<br />
<br />
Ok, down to the nuts and bolts, so to speak. Color-important! How many guys do you know who's junk is PINK?! <br />
Detail-important! It should look like a ****. Head, shaft, and balls should not all be the same color.<br />
Balls-there's got to be a way to make balls more realistic looking than the stuff on the market now, without them being so bulky that they keep you looking like you're sporting a woody all day.<br />
<br />
Being able to pee with it-important! I'm a big fan of peeing standing up. I'm a country boy (you city boys might not understand this) and when we are working or just chillin' outside and have to pee...we do not go inside the bathroom! Squatting behind a tree because I can't pee with my ****...not an option.<br />
<br />
Last but not least-erection-important! Really, what good is a **** that won't get hard? Kinda makes you feel like an old man with E.D.<br />
<br />
Hey man, know you've gotten a lot of feedback with lots of things different guys want. Just want you to know how much I appreciate guys like you with experience in the field working on this issue. It's gonna take people like you continuing to experiment and innovate to create a better prosthetic than we have available to us now. Thanks again.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS (FORGET ABOUT THE REST)<br />
<br />
* THE COLOR!! you have to be able get the color right, all the ones I've seen they get the details wrong, the color wrong. So for example most Vanilla prosthetics are WAY too white! guys don't have white *****! and even the really realistic colorful ones, sometimes they have a bulging red crown with blue pumping veins.. which is great when having sex or foreplay, but if your changing in the Gym, who wants to feel like they are all red and horny looking with a red veiny penis?.. most ftm's don't want that kind of attention in the gym I don't think, or at least not by straight macho guys. So its a balance between realism and subtlety.<br />
<br />
*You also want the price to be good, I think less than $500 would be good.<br />
<br />
* The weight and adhesive, ok you don't want it to feel so light is squashes down to nothingness, and if its a dual, you want it strong enough and full enough to make love with, but you have to be careful about the size and weight for packing. This is really important. You don't want it to fall off! SHOCK HORROR, (imagine first day of college or work and your apendage falls on the floor! or swimming!! arg!!).. so you need a REALLY good adhesive system that is waterproof and strong. It is especiallz good if you don't have to change it everyday, you can just leave it on for days if you want, this is cheaper and more convenient.<br />
<br />
*People want a decent package for people to see.. but they don't wanna look like they have a hardon, how do you achieve this if there is a bent rigid but flexible rod inside it?.. its difficult thats for sure. and how do you deal with making it big enough for sex but not too big for packing? this is also pretty difficult but very important.<br />
<br />
*Having colors and shapes that fit different skin tones, ethnicities and desires. So for example some guys will want a really small penis, coz they actually LIKE small penis's,... its suits them maybe or its better for anal sex, or some guys will want big balls, some small, some guys might want a foreskin or moveble skin, some guys wont' care but just want to pass. For some Peeing will be the most important thing, some might want to spurt white goo out of it. Some guys might want piercings in them, some might want a mini 'fleshlight" hole in the back for their little penis's, some guys might want a knob to massage, some might want a suction cup, who knows.. you don't have to cater for everyone in this respect but don't assume people want the same thing. And I am sure there is money in customisation.

I would love to see where you are in this process. i would easily pay up to $2000 if it met everything i wanted as i've paid twice for the $1,200 from ftm prosthetics and its not all i want, it's just the best currently out there. I agree with the last few posts. most important to me is realistic size and weight. movable skin, body temp, 3d balls that arent hard on the backside, glue on with pubic hair, pack and play in one, and the ultimate thing i can personally think of which to me would be even more perfect than having a stp would be maybe some kind of tube that can be loaded with some sort of sugar/salt edible composit that comes out the pee hole like *** maybe when the balls are squeezed or something. all i want to do is be able to *** in my girlfriend and i know they make ****** on the market with this feature. also the knob that is on the tyron2 products to help stimulate the bio "member" is something i wish my ftm pros. had.

I have to agree with the previous posts about the movable skin, and the ability of pack and play in one. I would also like to add the 3-D balls would be a big plus... how many bio-men have flat backs on their balls? a movable foreskin would be a great asset as well. skin colors are very generic in most of the truly affordable and durability also. If I am going to have something that will last for more than three to six months then I would be willing to pay more for it.

let me make a post here i have the dual prosthetic from au and its so big and bulky it feels too solid in pants it looks amazing but i swear waste of money i rather buy the soft one so i could atleast wear it maybe dayly and shower with it i have just ordered the like real they have a good idea softish and maybe the x factor glue will hold it better you know what i am so over having to glue it on just for sex run wait for the glue to dry stick it on and have to hold it anyway in place at the end what really needs to be out there something that feels softish like a really penis does but inside the middle something thats blends in to give it some solidness if you want it for sex and a decent length and that when it hangs down it hangs down correctly so that if it is attached to your body it doesn't have a massive bludge i h ave even used vixskin ****** and they are more passable and i havent told some woman that im trans to see if you can get create one option for the people who want to **** with and make that as a packer then another sex and daily wear sofft outside but with somefirmness and that fits well agninst the body and attention to how it hands down under pants then your a winner and trust me are their any courses in making prosthetic id make the best

I think you should make one as real as possible with a built in stp device and able to be erect and not erect when wanted. Also one that the skin moves with touch. I have a model from lolajake and it looks so real but the skin doesn't move when you touch it. Also you should make it not so expensive every good prosthetic is so expensive. And it should be able to stick to the skin with optional pubic hair. <br />
<br />
I want to make a prosthetic like I described but I don't know how. Can you please tell me any courses in tafe i would have to do to make prosthetics like this?

My wife really wants one that heats to body temp during intercourse. I just want to please her lol. I reckon the ultimate would be a dual that feels real of an average size that can be used everyday as a packer stp and for intercourse if you can design that I would buy it glue on or harness does not bother me as long as i could wear it :)

Well I think the best prosthetic would be the tyron2-prosthetic but with a stp device and not so expensive. This is the link of the tyron2 prosthetic, http://www.tyron2.net/

Hey not sure how far you have got with your design but believe I have winner of an idea one I have been sat on for about 5yrs get back to me if you still wanna design anything my email is jaykalel@hotmail.com names Jay. If this design works we can put it online on the FTM site.

There are some good ones out there but they cost around $1000 or more if dual. I was looking to spend no more than $450 but what would be more reasonable is between $300 - $400 at most ...with the economy at a standstill and the affordability will make your product a popular thing for FTMs and something they would highly recommend. There are not many duals out there with foreskin ...for flaccid yes but not when erect. I think that would be awesome because if you're going to make something realistic, why not make it as realistic as possible? Thanks.

I have no interest in purchasing one Myself but I hope you get some responses to this. I have seen some very good prosthetics but they are also very expensive online.

That was different!!!
