All About Packers
What is a Packer?
In our collective mind, a packer is any object (socks, silicone, or otherwise) that allows anyone of any gender to ‘sport a package’. At GenderGear.ca, we carry a number of different packers in different colours and materials that are explicitly made for the purpose of creating the appearance of a flaccid penis in one’s pants.
How to Choose a Packer
We carry packers in silicone (which is non-porous, easy to clean, and lasts forever) and in an elastomer material (which is porous, and will last a few years depending on how well you care for it). If you find that you sometimes have reactions to some materials, it is best to choose a silicone packer. Packers from Vixen, New York Toy Collective, and Form Function are all made of silicone, while the Ultimate Packers are elastomer. Packers may seem small on your computer screen, but appear much bigger once you’re packing - a porn star package is a great look, but definitely sends a message!
How to Wear a Packer
Packers can be tucked into ‘tighty whitey’ underwear, boxer briefs, or secured to the body using a packing strap. Aslan Leather makes the Packing Strap for use with the Mr Right and Pack-Man Packers, and SpareParts makes both a Commando and Trunk style of their Pete. Additionally, the SpareParts Tomboi will easily accommodate a packer of any size or style. The Get Your Joey packing pouch allows you to attach your packer to any underwear - and they're trans-made in Canada!
What is an STP Packer?
An STP is an packer that enables the user to Stand-To-Pee in public washrooms or in the privacy of one’s own home! Some folks who are transitioning or have transitioned, find that being able to use public urinals without detection (‘passing’) is integral to their masculine identity, while others love STPs for sex play, and some just like the convenience being able to easily urinate while standing.
