    Are you still at 1.6mm or has your sig just not been updated? Because if so you'll need to go to 2mm first.

    Oh, I thought I'd updated it o.O Yeah, I'm at 2mm. The taper slid in easily to a point but then it just stopped, and I wasn't going to force it in or anything so I'll just wait and hopefully next time it will actually go through. :/

    Ohhh I see. How long were you at 2mm? Some stretches just take longer. I've had some stretches take 3-4+ months.

    Actually now that I think about it I was at 00G for probably a year before I got to 7/16". But that was two separate sizes, 9mm and 10mm.

    I like emu oil because it's really thin and slippery. Jojoba oil is too but for some reason I've never really been into it, I just don't feel like it does a whole lot for my lobes for some reason. Some people love it though. I've never used Holey Butt'r. I've used vitamin E oil and it's okay for massages but it's kinda thick and sticky so it's not really good for the actual stretching process.
