Why Won't My Damn Foreskin Go Below My Head ?!??!



Dear Couch,

I am asking a question which might seem ludicrous, but here it goes. Does the foreskin of the shaft go down till the base or it just goes down till the head? Please answer at the earliest.

I never gave any serious thought about sex until, I came to know, that I now have to marry. I was always in my research lab. I get the feeling that my penis is not completely open up or free, I cannot uncover it fully during the process. I don't know whom to ask. Can you PLEASE help me? Please! Thanks.

I'm a 25 year old male virgin and am about to lose my cherry (don't laugh!!). I guess I'm a late bloomer. Anyway, I'm uncircumcised and am worried that I might tear my foreskin as it won't slide down my penis. Is that normal?

I mean, my friends tell me that's just for the first time but it gets worst as you grow older and that the longer I wait, the tougher it will be for me. And do men bleed when they lose their virginity?

Please humor my question and let me know.

Thanks and regards,
Darth


Dear Trapped Tubers,

Referred to with the catch-all phrase, phimosis, not being able to retract your foreskin below the head is not only annoying as hell, but can have serious health consequences. There are several reasons why you can't pull back your foreskin. A small percentage of men are just born with a foreskin that grows a bit too tight to pull back past the head, foreskin stenosis. Also, a mild chronic infection, balanitis, of the smegma, will cause enough minor swelling to prevent the schlong's sleeve from going past the glans. Also, sometimes men have little foreskin adhesions, bands of skin, that attach the foreskin to the edge of the glans known as preputial adhesions.

One thing to try at home would be soak in a warm bathtub and attempt to GENTLY retract the foreskin past the glans. As if this needs to be said, don't force it or you may rip something, or worse get the foeskin stuck behind the head of the penis which can cut off the blood flow much like a tourniquet. Leaving you with no other option but to embarrassingly present your little problem to the ER receptionist with a guarantee that a herd of medical students will be paraded by your poor choking wee-wee since they don't get to see that kind of thing too often.

Our particular assessment of the foreskin is, whack it off at birth. It's more trouble than it's worth and all the research says uncircumcised men have a greater and more varied sex life. Yes we realize this is a controversial subject and people will start jumping up and down, screaming 'Butchers!' and claiming one is better than the other. The fact is once you've grown up one way or the other, that is what's best for you, however, we disagree with this recent movement in the US against infant circumcision. We do not recommend circumcision after puberty has begun unless absolutely necessary, which is rarely the case. So your best bet is to head straight to a doctor now to get an expert's, hands on, one-one-one assessment of your particular situation so you can get busy enjoying the better things of life.
