Hi. I'm 16 and when erect i can pull my foreskin down to expose my full head, but it will slide back up to about half way and stay there if im not holding it, it wont sit below the glans because theres to much skin to fit under there and it just ends up slowly sliding back up, could this be a problem during sex? cheers
Hi, please don't worry. You sound perfectly normal, as no two men are the same. The foreskin will retract and move forward as you have sex, and it won't make any difference. If it doesn't cause you any problems when you masturbate, it won't cause you any problems when you have sex. Hope this helps. John
You simply are blessed with a long foreskin.
The foreskin is an asset and highly beneficial. A long foreskin is more of an asset and more beneficial than a short foreskin. Moreover, the ancient Greeks considered a long, tapering foreskin to be a sign of male beauty. The long tip is called the akroposthion.
Long full-length foreskins will not auto-retract on erection. Only inadequate short foreskins will auto-retract. For your skin to go back, the foreskin has to be wide enough to retract over the head.
If your foreskin is wide enough, it will retract if it is shorter than the erect penis. If it is longer, then it will never retract by itself but may be pushed back, however, it may not stay back. Some longer foreskins spring forward again when released.
When a long foreskin is manually retracted, it gathers in folds at the base of the penis. The folds want to unfold and push the foreskin forward back to its normal position. A long foreskin is likely to slide/roll forward to recover and protect the glans penis when it is released. Some men simply cannot keep the foreskin retracted. This is not considered to be a problem.
The long foreskin provides superior protection to the head of the penis and keeps it soft, smooth, and sensitive.
The long foreskin may improve the sexual experience because of its superior gliding action. The long foreskin also may have more pleasure nerves.
