Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hey guys I'm 13 and previously asked a question about this.When I get hard, myforeskin won't retract. It doesn't hurt when I pull back the skin completely,but always go back up a little. And the end of the head,the skin forms a ring around it. I'm thinking of just getting circumcised,but I heard it would hurt for a few days and you wouldn't be able to jack off until the stiches come off. What should I do?


Hi Danny

You are still growing and developing and as you grow you may find that your foreskin only partially covers the head of your penis when erect.

It is my understanding that some guys have longer foreskins than others but again with some growth things can change.

I think if you got circumcised that you’re right there would be a great deal of pain associated with having that done and you would most definitely need to give it time to heal.

It would probably be a good idea to see your doctor explain to him what is going on and what your concerns are and your doctor can tell you what would be the best thing for you to do and put your mind at ease.

It could very well everything is fine and there is no need to do anything but your doctor should be the one that determines that.



Thanks for the advice :)


Your welcome hope it helps.


Hi Danny:

Do not worry! You are normal for your age.

To retract the foreskin, one must grab the foreskin on the shaft and pull it rearward, but do not force it. If the foreskin will not retract then you must consider leaving it as it is or doing stretching exercises to make it retractable. You are fortunate to have a choice.

It is not necessary to have a foreskin that will retract. Some men live their entire lives with a non-retractable foreskin. They can masturbate, have penetrative sex, get married, and father children with a foreskin that does not retract. Some believe that a penis with a non-retractile foreskin has more sensation and that sex is better.

It depends on just how tight your foreskin is. If it is really narrow and absolutely won't retract, then you can have penetrative sex without pain. On the other hand, if it just a little bit tight, then it is likely to be forced back during sex and that will hurt because it is tight. In that case, it probably would be better to stretch your foreskin until it glides easily back and forth.

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 become retractable 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.
