If you found this article because you want tips on packing your sextoys for travel, you're in the wrong place (but this other articlemight help). The packing we're talking about is when someone putssomething (sock, dildo, etc.) into their pants to make it lookand/or feel as though they have a penis, noticeable bulge, or"package." People ofall genders pack for lots of reasons. Some folks pack for costumingpurposes, others because they want something that feelslike an extension of their body. It can be about gender bending, powerplay,convenience, or being subversive and naughty. Whatever the reasons youchoose to pack, these tips can help.

Before we get into some basic steps, first decide if you want to pack hard, soft,or somewhere in the middle. Packing hard means packing with a dildo ordick that is firm or "erect." Packing soft is a less functional wayto pack, if the function you're looking for is penetration; it refersto wearing something resembling a more flaccid penis. There aresome products that can also help you pack somewhere in the middle, soyou can feel softer than some dils and still be able to penetrate.

Packing Hard

  1. Choose a dildo or dick that you identifywith. It should have a base that will hold it securely in a harness.Longer dildos are sometimes easier to bind down with underwear, whileshorter dildos are more likely to protrude straight out. Dildos areavailable in different materials, including latex, jelly rubber, andsilicone, to name a few. Latex and jelly rubber are more affordable, forfolks who want to sample packing hard before making a largerinvestment, but will wear more quickly and need to be replaced moreoften. Silicone is ahigh-quality material that can be sanitized and shared safely. It comesin avariety of densities from extra-firm to really soft. Some dils, like the Lonestar, and Goodfella, come with balls thatcan add to your packing experience. Many transmen we know love the combination of the smaller-sized Goodfella and the Spareparts Joque Harness for hard packing. The Spareparts Joque is extremely comfortable to wear while packing (and playing!) and super-adjustable.
  2. Find a comfortable harness. If you want to play with your dick, you'll need acomfortable harness. The Commando Harness, which can be either aone-strap (fits like a G-string) or a two-strap harness (fits like ajock strap), is nice because the leather softens and molds to yourbody. The O-rings are adjustable so you can be sure you've got theright fit for your dildo. And, if your dick has balls, the straps of theCommando can hold them nicely in place.
  3. Get a snug pair of tighty whiteys orboxer briefs. You'll want an undergarment that will help you tame the raginghard-on in your pants until you're ready to unleash it. Some otheritems to consider are a g-string or jock strap.
  4. Decide which way you want to dress.Which way does your dick hang? Up and to the right? Down and to theleft? Arrange your dil in your underwear in the way that feels mostcomfortable to you.

Packing Soft

  1. Decide upon a soft packer. For agespeople have been wearing rolled up socks in their pants. While this isstill a somewhat effective method, there are now soft dils made withpacking in mind. They've even been known to pass the squeeze test ingay male bars! Soft Packs are made from cyberskin, a material thatfeels very realistic and warms nicely to body temperature. They'recurrently available in four tones (vanilla, mocha, chocolate, and blue)and four sizes (mini, small, medium, and large). The small is a moreaverage size that is somewhat noticeable, while the large can border onporn star. Be sure to read the care instructions for cyberskin, as itis a more fragile material that requires extra care. A newly availablealternative is Mr. Right, a silicone packing dick that has veryrealistic balls and a small nubbin for lovin'. Pat this packer downwith cornstarch for a satiny feel in your shorts!
  2. Put on your favorite undergarment. Youcan wear a soft pack in a pair of briefs, a G-string/thong, or a jock strap.These should all hold it firmly in place. Boxers and boxer-briefs willnot hold in your softie, possibly leaving you in the position of having toretrieve it from the middle of the crosswalk.
  3. Secure your softie. If you're not intobriefs, or if you are but would like extra security, you can put yoursoftie in the toe of a pair of nylons. Tie a knot behind the balls andsafety-pin the knot to the waistband of your undergarment.Alternatively, you can wear a harness such as the Commando Harness,which will also safely hold in your softie. If you choose to wear aharness, be sure that your softie fits snugly and won't slip out. Aproduct designed expressly to help secure your softie is theCock Sock, which works great with mini-medium soft packs.
  4. Arrange your package. If you don't havemuch experience with viewing packages, you might want to check outunderwear ads for a better idea of how a penis hangs in a pair ofbriefs, jock, or bikini.

Middle of the Road

As more and more transguys are coming out and demanding morerealistic products, more packers are becoming available that combineform with function; in other words, they look good and you can playwith them.

  1. What they are, what they do. Mr.Bendy is a cyberskin dil that can be bent into shape. Repeated bendingin the same spot will eventually break the piece that holds the dilrigid for penetration, but it has a great feel for packing. Bothoptions will allow you to pack ?realistically,? and still have somefunction. They're great for blow jobs, okay for vaginal penetration, andless helpful for anal penetration, as they tend to be rather soft.Similarly, they're better used with slower penetration than with hardand fast fucking. One thing to keep in mind while packing Mr. Bendy, is that there is metal in the core that will set off detectors, so make your travel and packing (pun intended!) plans accordingly.
  2. Stand up sit down fight fight fight!It's a good idea to arrange yourself however you feel most comfortable,then stand up and sit down a few times in the privacy of your own homeso you know how your package is likely to shift. When it does shift,you can adjust yourself just like the rest of the guys.

Now go out and have a good time! Packing a bulge in your pants canchange the ways that you feel when you're walking down the street ordancing with a partner. Have fun, experiment, and let yourself feelsexy!
