    I was reading the FAQ on Kaos Softwear's site and this came up:

    We will be developing additional jewelry designs specifically for lobe and cartilage stretching, and other applications and locations, in the near future. We are currently testing new, higher durometer ("less tacky") silicones, and special coatings, to alleviate this potential problem, along with experimental lubricants, and a couple of other means of ridding the silicone of its tacky surface.
    I don't remember that being there! Also, curious about what the first part may be. hmh. *skeptical*
    But I'm always interested in hearing about innovations in the mod world!

    Is it okay to taper all the way to 10mm? I'm at 2.4mm right now, the chart I have goes from 2.4 to 3 to 3.2 to 4, then 5, 6, 7, etc. So tapering up to 4 would be about what I'm doing now, but then it's a whole mm each time. Taping seems like a daunting task when tapering is usually easy so far...

    And does anyone know of a relatively cheap set of threaded tapers? Or even just a 3mm one for now.

    I have never worked out why people think tapers are somehow wrong or bad to use as stretching tools.
    As long as you use lube, don't force, don't skip sizes, and follow with suitable plugs (in other words, do it right) stretching with tapers is fine.


    I use single flare glass or round-ended steel plugs, and cheap acrylic tapers :P cos I prefer to spend money on goal size pretties, not expensive tapers that will be used for a matter of seconds then never touched again.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?
