This is what you should pretty much be looking at.
Your packer should fit nice in snug in it's O-Ring and you should have a decent amount of tape above it to help get a good grip and keep it in place.
When you go to place it, being in front of a mirror can really help with judging a natural looking placement.
And if you have a super close friend, significant other, family member etc, this would be the time to ask for help like I did.
It's a little tricky applying for the first time.
When you go to apply, keep in mind whether or not you will be using this as a stand to pee or not. It definitely makes a difference.
For a stand to pee, it's a good idea to hold your packer where it needs to be for easy-peasy peeing and then apply the tape while the packer is still in place.
If someone is helping you, have them hold the tape while you adjust your packer to where it needs to be or vice-versa.
After you get the placement down, go ahead and peel the backing, press the adhesive to your skin and then rub the tape to heat it up and activate the adhesive. If you need to readjust, that's fine, just don't rub the tape prior to pulling it back up.
You may lose some of the effectiveness of the adhesive the more you pull up and readjust though.
And that about sums it up, guys.
If you've made it this far, you just might have a packer attached to your body with TransTape, possibly for the first time.
Now, if that's true, I need you to do something for me.
I need you to do the helicopter.
It was amazing, wasn't it, I know it was.
Next time we revisit packing with TransTape, we can dive into my personal packing experience and the Art of Peeing.
We've all been waiting for that one.
In the meantime, stay awesome, stay beautiful and stay you.
You are loved, it gets better.
Welcome to the cool kids club!
My name is Jamie and I'm a young (ish) transman born and raised in the Hudson Valley of New York state. I started my transition in May of 2017 and since then, I've made it my mission to live unapologetically as myself and spread awareness through my pursuit of happiness. I am the creator and writer of Spilling T blog, a proud affiliate of TransTape and when I'm not outside with the best dog ever or hanging out with my two cats, I make and sell my own beard care products through Buckaroo's Beard Care. I'm always looking for my next adventure and have been skydiving, road-tripping, hiking in the mountains and even served for a short time in the United States Marine Corps. My life has had its fair share of twists and turns and I hope to use those experiences to create helpful and relatable content that may help someone else navigate a difficult time in life.
