Couldn't find what you looking for?


my problem is similar to those already listed.

i could not fully retract the foreskin whilst erect and the part of the head that was out was sensitive to the point where it was very unplesant due to being exposed to air.

recently i tried again whilst it was half-erect and it went a bit further, but was painfull. it felt like grit had built up on the head and was digging into the foreskin when it was being pulled back, which is very unlikely. but could it be smegma?

i have read about stretching excercises in other posts and will try to do them but the pain and sensitivity are a big problem even whilst exposing the head to decrease its sensitivity. im about 15.5 btw.


Hi Fonduman:


Smegma is not gritty, so it is unlikely to be smegma.

Almost all boys are born with a foreskin that does not retract. This is normal. It takes years for the ability to retract to develop. About ½ of boys have a retractable foreskin by 10.4 years of age. Many adolescents still have foreskins that have tips that are too narrow to pass back over the penis head. These foreskins may be gently stretched over a period of time to cause them to widen.


It is normal for teens to have a foreskin that does not retract. One’s foreskin is still developing. If you want your foreskin to retract (not everyone wants a retractable foreskin), then you can help it develop ability to retract by stretching it.


If you choose to stretch your foreskin, then the goal is to have a foreskin that glides smoothly back and forth so as to provide maximum pleasure.


When your penis is erect, gently pull your foreskin back against the head of the penis. As the head attempts to pass through the foreskin it will stretch the skin a little. Do this every day and in a few weeks or months your foreskin will widen and you will be able to retract your foreskin. Do NOT force retraction. Do NOT cause yourself pain.


It works by tissue expansion. Stretching skin induces “mitosis” which is a word that means “division of cells”. New skin cells are formed and the skin expands but it takes some time. The increase in size is permanent. Be patient and give mitosis time to work.


The important thing is to put the skin under tension every day so that it will grow wider.
