    Hello all. I am wondering if there is a trick to replacing the ear socks on the xx. I can pull them off but the new one (OEM) doesn't slide in and I don't want to tear the new sock or mess up the ear stem some how. Do you lube it up or something? Thanks in advance.

    Hand sanitizer..... it evaporates leaving the rubber nice and tight

    Use a screw motion as well. Screw the rubber on like you are putting a cap back on a bottle.

    +1 - no residue and tight fit when dry, tiny dab on end of earstem and they slide right on pretty easy - works for taking off tough ones too.

    First and foremost, tons of patience. Slowly and gently is the key. Just take your time, no short cuts.

    I just cant help it @OakleyFrankFMJ .......

    It may burn and sting in the beginning, but it heightens the sensation and allows you to take you first step into the world of BDSM.......
