Couldn't find what you looking for?


hey well i only just fully retracted my foresking for the first time, i am 15 an yes its sensitive but ill just keep it out as much as possible to toughen the skin. my main problem is that when i get an errection the think peice of skin(the bridge i think its called) attaching the foreskin to the head is really tight is causing me to not get or maintain an errection because its kind of pulling, i also cant pull the foreskin back when errect but can get an errection with it already pulled back, but then it gets tight like what i said above

will i need to go to the doctors, or can i just stretch it gradually


Hi Bob:

You are blessed with a protective, highly-innervated, erogenous foreskin. Many unforeskinned guys would envy your foreskin. You display great wisdom in wanting to avoid circumcision,

You should thank your parents for protecting your physical integrity. Because of your physical integrity you will be able to have sex the way nature intended it.

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.

Foreskin retraction is not absolutely necessary. A male may masturbate, have sexual intercourse, and father children with a non-retractile foreskin. Some believe that sex is better with a non-retractile foreskin.

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 several times 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.

Search the Internet for:

and you will find the information and support you need.

The skin attachment you mention is probably your frenulum.

The attachment you see is called the frenulum. It is normal and supposed to be there. The frenulum is highly innervated and serves to limit the retraction of the foreskin.

The stretching of the frenulum during sex helps to trigger orgasm.

Be careful not to pull your foreskin back too forcefully or you may tear your frenulum.

If your frenulum is too short to permit complete retraction, then you probably have a condition called “frenulum breve.” You may stretch your frenulum to help with retraction.
