Definition - What does Packer mean?

A packer is a phallic object worn in the front of the pants or underwear to give the appearance of having a penis. Packing is commonly practiced by anyone who wants to present as male, such as transgender men.

Kinkly explains Packer

Packers may consist of a penis only or of a penis and scrotum. There are several kinds of packers available depending on the wearer's needs. Some simply fill out clothing at the crotch while others function for sexual intercourse (Pack n' Play) or urination (Stand to Pee packer). The use of a harness to keep a packer in place is common. Likewise, some companies produce underwear with built-in pouches for holding a packer secure. Packers can be purchased (reputeable adult retailers often carry them) but can also be fashioned at home. DIY packers are often fashioned from socks or condoms and hair gel.

This device is most commonly used by trans* masculine, gender queer, or gender non-conforming people, but people of all genders can use a packer. Another term for using a packer is "soft packing." When purchasing a packer, it is important to be discerning with material choice. While cyberskin, elastomer, and other materials are cheaper than silicone, they are also porous and unable to be sanitized. These materials can hold onto bacteria and cannot be boiled to kill those bacteria.
