Low/medium/high circumcision

Thanks for the links karldergrosse . It seems I don't quite match the high or low pics given on that second link. It seems I'm mostly likely a "medium" then. Does anyone have a standard

is part of a discussion in the The Healthy Penis forum that includes topics on Erection concerns, Viagra, ejaculation, diseases, etc..

Does anyone have a standard they could offer to distinguish high medium and low?

The link at halfclip in post 15 will give you an idea of standards.

if a guy still had all his inner foreskin and stretched it back, roughly how far on the shaft would it go?

I don't know of any figures on that particular question, C, and if there were any, they'd most likely vary all over the scale, just as penises themselves do. I'll crawl out on a limb, however, and offer my personal speculations. Logically it must depend on the individual lengths of both penis and foreskin. To be more specific, the inner skin is anchored at the sulcus; from that point inner and outer layers are of equal lengths (though the inner is doubled) toward the tip, covering the glans and including any overhang. Therefore, short penis & long foreskin = high retraction, long penis & short foreskin = low retraction, and so on. This should hold reliably true for men whose frenulums and/or foreskin openings allow for full retraction, but for others for whom one or both do not,* there doubtless would be no predictability whatsoever. My best guess, judging only by photographs/films and my own experience in this country and noncircumcising Europe, is that there may be more men who do not retract fully (i.e., all the way back and flat along the shaft) than those who do.

*As an aside, one of the most frequent assurances that I give, as an Intactivist, is this: There's nothing magic about retracting to the balls and nothing tragic about not retracting at all [i.e., no farther than just behind the glans].

For a little more on low circumcision, scan circlist.de: see especially the LH (dark brick-red) menu column, bottom heading ("Bildergalerie"), sub-entry "Low Circumcision." (Despite the English term, this site is in German; I'll translate passages of text {within reason!} for anyone who might request it.) I have no idea what percentage of the very few circumcised Europeans are low cut, but I have the distinct impression that it is the most popular style (traditionally, at least) in Germany and France...and in French Canada, whose surgeons, I've readd, are generally trained in that usual French style. To view a low-cut operation, see circumstitions.com, the first example under "Videos" (no title, but in a green box). A low circumcision obviously requires tugging out and removing virtually all of the inner foreskin: that procedure is exactly what you'll see in graphic detail, from beginning to end. ...And you'll hear the operator fatuously asking the mother if she is doing all right...! Sheesh!!!

There's an interesting section on this site on variations in foreskin length, as they occur naturally.

This guy's perception of what the most common foreskin length is (with some overhang) is a bit different from mine - I don't think most men have much overhang at all - though some certainly do!

High is when the scar is further away from the glands. Low is when it is closer to the glands. The tightness of the circumcision has NOTHING to do with how low or high the scar is because you can have high and loose, high and tight, low and loose or low and tight.

This comes from a guy who actually ASKED for what circumcision I wanted and RECEIVED what I asked for.

That's what I've heard, but it doesn't make any sense to me. I think we should change it around.
It doesnt need to and dont change it around because it confuses people. Though I would imagine thats just what you want to do.

I have about 20% to 30% of my inner foreskin (probably closer to 20%), what would that make mine?
P.S. thanks in advance for responding and please lets not turn this into a
Pro/Anti circumcision debate!
I am uncut but I hope you still have all your frenulum. That is the big key I think.

I asked for high and medium. I didnt want it to be too tight but I didnt want it to be loose either. So when I am flaccid my scar is right up against my head while when I am hard it stretches back about an inch at my hardest. I did not keep the frenulum because I had a short frenulum.

CLARIFICATION: Mea culpa! The inner foreskin most definitely is not itself "doubled" (though it does double back on itself during retraction, the tip end traveling backward across the glans and up the shaft). Rather, as I clumsily attempted to say, it and the outer skin form a separable double layer from the sulcus forward. Thus one can get a vague notion from that length of how far back the inner skin might reach--while remembering that both inner and outer skins are extremely flexible and stretchable.

That's a low circumcision as nearly all of the inner foreskin has been removed. That small ring around the base of the glans (what I guess is about a centimeter) is all that's left of the inner foreskin.
