    Melanotan

    I would like feedback from anyone who has taken melanotan.
    How long does it take to see a tan? How much do you use for a competition ( i understand it probably varies from person to person).
    Does it cause water retention? How long before a show do you start/end. How long does it last?
    Is there anything else you use with it for a show?

    Stuff is phenomenal! It is important the first 7-10 days to “load” up, everyday for the first 7-10 days. Afterwards only have to take 3-4 times in a week, make sure to get some sun in. You should see results within 3-4 days. The results depend on your skin type as well. I was very dark, like chocolate dark.

    Does it cause you to,retain water? If you were to stop taking it, how long before you become lighter?
    If you use it for a show, do you need something else at show time?

    Possibly retains water, I know for some it does make people nauseous but it is very subtle. For me the color change. It took a while. I got lighter but it seemed as though my skin color permanently changed. Instead of being white when i got off it, I had like an olive skin tone. And it seems like most people at show time use the spray tan. Definitely worthit though!

    If we're talking MT2, not MT1, I don't load the dosage, others do. I start at .25mg/250mcg EOD and sit out on the sun for a bit. I'm a ginger so it doesn't take long to notice the effects.
    Generally within a week of starting and 20-30 minutes of sun, the tanning becomes noticeable. After I get to the amount of tanning I want, I dose 2x/week at the most and continue to get some UV/sunlight.
    Never have notice any water retention.
    Umm, random erections are a side effect; just so you know.
    Think there is a decent thread on this, if I see it, I will bump it, charger.

    Now with that being said, I am planning on using this for competition. I did not realize that you needed UV for it to work. Does that mean that I need to walk around in my posing trunks outside?
    Do people still paint themselves for competition?

    You'll need some sunlight or a tanning bed for MT2 to be effective. Spray tan is used for comps, but you know how that stuff is. It can come out horribly wrong if over applied.

    Why would you take too much? Was it for the tan or for the boner????? Maybe the yoga pants were not doing it for you. LOL

    Some people are more sensitive to the nausea effect than others. I always dose right before I go to sleep and it isn't an issue.

    So the Melanotan does not take the place of the “tan paint”? I would assume that it would take the place of the base paint.

    no (heck even black guys still get the tan spray before stepping on stage), you still need that final coat and sheen . however melanotan will make your tan look more natural and rich.

    So I need to walk around in posing trunks in the sun to get the tan in the delicate areas?

    On that, I can't speak from experience, Charger. I just know people that have had bad experiences with spray tan and some people have had no problems.
    I would guess if you have a decent base you would require less spray tan, but that's just a guess. As far as having a good tan, MT2 will definitely do the trick with adequate UV exposure. I'm a ginger and can get a pretty darn good tan with MT2.

    whatever it takes right a loading week or two with the melanotan and a few sessions in the tanning bed nude (with a sock) will get you covered. if your natty tan is not completely even don't worry the spray tan booth at the show will even you out , another reason you always still get the spray tan

    Just go to a tanning bed after you take your shot. The new beds you only need a couple of minutes if that. Not like the old days.

    I remember going to the tanning bed and listening to Michael Jackson (1988). Ever since it has been paint.

    I remember the first time I went and went butt naked and just covered my junk. My ass was so burned I could not sit down for days. The spray tan seems like it is the thing now but if your going to use the Melanotan you need UV rays and this time of year the UV index is very low in North America. Oh, I learned the hard way with this product, you can get a farmers tans very fast so be aware of exposed skin to the sun vs unexposed when you start out.

    I’m going to go for it. How frequently at the beginning do I need to go to the tanning bed? Daily? I will soon see if it retains water.... my biggest nightmare.

    Is there anything else you use with it for a show?
    150mcg ED with a few tanning sessions will get me super dark inside of two weeks. More is not better. Kills my appetite and makes my dick into a diamond.

    Pin it with a Benadryl before bed to avoid tummy upsets.

    Yeah, I was gonna ask if it causes Melasma, sounds like it does.

    BB,
    Am I right to think that if it causes freckles it will cause melasma?
