Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hi I'm 14 and I've got a tight forskin and was Wondering how to stretch it ?



It's common for you to have a tight foreskin and it not retract until about age 16 or so.

You can stretch it by using your fingers to spread the opening.  You can also get an erection and pull down on the shaft skin so that the glans (head) spreads the opening.

Never force the foreskin back as it can get stuck.  Pull as hard as you are comfortable with, you don't have to hurt yourself but there may be some discomfort.  You may find it easier in the shower as the water will help soften the skin.  You'll also find the glans itself very sensitive and that's normal too.  As it becomes exposed more it will become less sensitive.

Hope it helps.



Hi BonBon11:
Do not worry! You are normal for your age.

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. One can help it develop by stretching it.

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.
