Is it normal for the foreskin to bunch up and stay retracted like that? The pain and discomfort I feel is not from the head, although the head is sensitive it is used to contact from daily cleaning. The discomfort is from where the foreskin bunches up. I dont really pull my foreskin back during masturbation, so I have not been aware of this problem until now. I feel silly being as old as I am and having to ask these questions.. I really should know by now. I would rather not go to my doctor either, unless I have to, as I would feel kind of embarrassed. Could anyone offer me some advice? I am at a loss right now and would really appreciate it. Thanks much, in advance.
The foreskin does take a lot of punishment during intercourse - especially if it's a tight fit. One way to reduce this punishment might be to use a lubricant. KY jelly is a popular one and can be bought in any pharmacy.
Another idea might be to try using a condom. Yeah they can reduce the enjoyment of skin-on-skin sex but it should reduce any intercourse-chaffing which would further antagonise the problem.
All in all it doesn't sound too serious. I had a bit of foreskin pain when i first started having unprotected sex. I had some tearing of the banjo string (the bit where the foreskin connects to the underside of the head) and that was particularly painful.
All the best with it, i hope it all works out!!
Hi all, Well even I am in my late 20s and similar and am a late starter for having sex. I too am uncircumcised and experience severe pain during intercourse. While pain is something which is manageable, I end up being concious about it and fail to enjoy having sex.
I am able to pull back my foreskin quite easily when its not erect and its only slightly difficult to pull it back when its erect, though I can sense lot of tightness towards the edge where the foreskin bunches up. I have always masturbated without pulling my foreskin back, so never had any problems so far. So once i started experiencing pain and tightness during intercourse, I tried masturbating with my foreskin back, but it seems too difficult to ejaculate. I dont have any problem ejaculating when my foreskin is not pulled back. While I am embarassed as well to ask these questions so late in my life, I hope I do get a solution as I am really not comfortable going to doctor with this problem at this age as I am still not sure if its a problem in the first place :(
Does using KY Jelly help ?
Will using KY Jelly help reduce the pain?
1.) There are foreskin stretching exercises you can do that will help with retraction.
2.) There are penis health cremes available that contain Vitamin E and shea butter that will hydrate your penis skin.
These two things together should help loosen up your foreskin a bit over time. This should lead to better sexual experiences. Good luck.
