What is packing?
Before we delve into all things STP packer underwear, let’s take a step back and talk packing.
Packing is the process of using a packer to achieve a bulge at your crotch that looks like a penis (and it might feel like one too). Packers come in all shapes, sizes and colours. They can be anything from a rolled-up pair of socks to a painted prosthetic made from silicone or thermoplastic elastomer.
STP packers feature an internal funnel allowing people with vulvas to urinate while standing up. They usually have a flexible cup that the wearer can hold against their anatomy so that pee can flow through the funnel and out of the tip of the packer.
