Q: How easy are these to put on and take off?
A: Putting the shorts on requires both patience and time. To skip on either of these can result in frustration, or worse, damage to the product. To put them on, you must slowly work them up your legs, one side at a time, until you get them into position. Some shifting and subtle twisting of the silicone may be necessary to get everything into an ideal position. Ultimately, it will be the wearer who must find the perfect position for the shorts according to their individual taste and anatomy. It is possible to aid in the process of pulling the shorts up the legs by applying body lotion, which will then absorb into the skin. One of the important features of the product is that the inside is tacky, and as such will stay where you put it; Over use of lotion or baby powder will negate this effect and the silicone will simply slide out of place on your body.
Periodic adjustment and/or pulling up of the shorts is to be expected.
How long the product can comfortably be worn will vary for each individual and environment.
Taking the shorts off is actually much easier than putting them on; Usually the body will have at least a nominal amount of perspiration which will allow for easily sliding the product down the legs.
Q: Is there any special care that should be taken when wearing them under clothing?
A: It is advisable to wear pantyhose over the silicone shorts in order to facilitate the process of dressing and undressing; Silicone has a slightly rubbery surface (go figure), and clothing will not slide over it the way it does on skin.
Q: Do they feel real? Could you fool someone who is touching you into thinking that it's really you?
A: Bare silicone, while very lifelike, is still a synthetic material, and most people will realize the difference. Under clothing, however, even a simple layer of nylon, the shorts are quite convincing. Slapping the buttock will even make a very authentic sound! Creative use of clothing, especially lingerie, can be very fun with this product, and create some very believable illusions (see photo examples).
Q: Are these shorts comfortable to wear? How long can you wear them?
A: The short answer is that wearing this very unique product is something that each person will react differently to; The fit is designed to be quite tight, in order to accomplish what the product is meant to do. As mentioned before, the silicone is also an insulator, and will hold heat within it. This being the case, you will be wearing a very snug pair of shorts that are warm inside. Depending on the environment you are in, the activities you are engaged in, and your physiology, the experience will be different every time. Many will find that they love the feeling of wearing the shorts, and some may find that it is an acquired taste. It is similar to wearing a halloween mask: Some people don't mind wearing them and others do. It can also be compared to wearing a corset, in that the fit is snug and you are aware of it's presence. Again, many people love wearing a corset and some do not. All of the above factors will influence how long each person can wear the shorts before they may become uncomfortable.
Q: How do you care for the shorts? How do you wash them, and store them?
A: The shorts can be washed in hot water with antibacterial soap. This should be done at least every other use to keep them clean. Storing them is best done on the foam form that they were shipped to you on, preferably covered or wrapped in a soft untextured fabric. Don't store them somewhere where there are sharp corners or edges pushing against them, and don't compress them to the point that they are heavily wrinkled. In the unlikely event of a tear, stop using/wearing them until you have contacted us for a repair kit. Continuing to use them after a tear has started can result in it getting unnecessarily worse.
Q: How do you go to the bathroom while wearing the shorts?
A: The simple answer is that you can pull the shorts down to use the bathroom; We recommend that if you wish to be able to urinate without removing the shorts you acquire a "Texas catheter" (available widely online through medical supply companies) and route the tube near the vagina of the shorts; In this way you can urinate without the inconvenience of removing the shorts. You will, however, need to remove the shorts for "other" bathroom needs.
Q: Is the vagina usable? Does it have a canal?
A: Due to obvious anatomical differences between males and females, the vagina on the shorts will lead to a region on the wearer's body without an orifice; Creative manipulation on the part of the wearer could conceivably result in positioning the shorts and/or body in such a way that the shorts could be usable in this way. We as the manufacturer will leave this endeavor up to the end user, rather than offer detailed explanation as to how it may, or may not be accomplished.
