Tired of pulling out the Magnums, fumbling with the packaging, finally figuring out which end is up, and then pulling it on with care not to snap it? Yeah, so is everybody else. To answer this need, there is the Jiftip, a penis sticker(PS) to seal the tip of the penis so when the confetti pops, it says contained. Experiencing a mixture of disbelief and keen interest in how all this works? Read on for all the details on PS’s.
What Is a Penis Sticker(PS’s)?
The Jiftip, or PS, is a polyurethane film with an adhesive on one side. Think of it as being like one of those round band-aids but without the gauze. They cost about four dollars each and were initially created as a way to avoid using condoms. However, they are not as effective as condoms in any way, shape, or form. They do not prevent pregnancy or protect the wearer from giving or getting a sexually transmitted disease (STD).
What Do Penis Stickers Do?
Let’s walk through the process step-by-step. A man securely sticks a PS over his urinary meatus, what laymen call the pee hole, before engaging in a sex act. The PS blocks the opening of the penis; this keep pre-ejaculate and ejaculation fluids from escaping. Basically, it contains the crime scene.
Now a man is faced with two choices. He can ejaculate with his penis sealed and then remove the sticker during clean-up or he can pull the PS off before he blows his confetti elsewhere – dealer’s choice.
Who Would Use a Penis Sticker?
The company that sells these special PS’s clearly states that they are for “novelty, pleasure, convenience or entertainment.” So, if a man is bored on a Tuesday night should he see if he can pop one off with the force of his ejaculation, just for giggles? Who these PS’s are not for is those people who want to prevent pregnancy or contracting an STD.
The Jiftip is specifically marketed to couples who use the withdrawal method, also known as hoping and praying, for contraception. These PS’s could also be useful for partners who want to provide oral sex for their man but hate the taste of pre-cum and the fluids that follow an orgasm. In this way, it may be a win-win for everyone. But again, they aren’t going to protect against STDs or pregnancy.
Serious Consequences of Using Penis Stickers
In case it isn’t obvious, there are some serious concerns about penis stickers beyond their unprotective status. Here’s the thing: when a man wears a Jiftip, he’s trying to stop the semen from bursting out when he orgasms. This forces some of the semen back into the urethra. The urethra is an exit-only door. When stuff goes back in, problems arise. In this case, the semen could mingle with some bacteria and cause a nasty infection. This is part of the reason men should urinate after ejaculation to ensure all the semen and bacteria have vacated the urethra.
Men who have prostatitis are at a higher risk. Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate. For those men, semen already likes to hang out in the urethra, so adding more semen to the mix could increase inflammation and lead to a urinary tract infection.
Next, let’s talk about force and volume of ejaculate. If a man produces a lot of fluid, it may leak out or jettison the sticker right off his manhood. Ejaculating in a high-pressure instance can also back up a man’s system and could lead to serious pain in the penis and prostate.
Finally, let’s talk about peeling off a penis sticker. Who wants to pull a sticker full of jizz off his member? Even the website testimonials for the Jiftip don’t sugarcoat the experience, saying removal hurts. If a man has very sensitive skin, the adhesive can cause irritation and redness.
After all that penis sticker talk, there’s no time like the present to remember that a penis is a life-long friend and needs TLC. Give your member a daily treat by using a specially formulated penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil , which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to calm and nurture the skin. This kind of crème is made expressly for the penis to be gentle but efficient. It boosts blood flow, promotes elasticity and tone, and seals in moisture to create a nutritive barrier between the penis and the outside world.
