Foreskin too tight <br>Foreskin too tight <br>foreskin too tight
Posted by: 2Shy

Thought I would re-post this here, because it is a universally recurring problem that a lot of men suffer from: Taken from the "Sexologist" forum and my response is the next posting.
Hi everyone. I don't know if this question has been adressed, but I would like some help. Whenever I have sex it feels as if my foreskin is too tight. When I am not erect I am able to pull back the skin and expose the glans entirely. However, during an erection this is impossible. Sometimes the skin is forced behind the head of my penis. This can be quite painful. In short: it feels as if though the skin is too tight. My docter recommended circumcision but this seems a bit drastic to me. I have also heard of a stretching procedure where the foreskin is stretched in order too loosen it. What should I do? I would really appreciate any comment.

Hi Donny and welcome to our forum.

I'm not sure why you pasted this post from the sexology forum here, but I am aware of your organisation that is opposed to circumcision. Some people contend that this is simply a sublimation of a foreskin fetish while others argue that it is a 'human rights issue'.
