    Okay. Well problem is, my foreskin is still quite tight and it doesn't retract. It's loosened a bit over the years but not a lot, not to get it fully back.
    Only time I've ever been able to do so was when I was soft but it went really weird as the head started to like grow before I was able to get it back over it. Really put me off trying again :smile:

    I know its weird but anyone had a similar experience or advice, preferably without going down the circumcision route. I mean it's never really gave me any problems anyway as is at all, but it's just something thats been concerning me a bit since the incident.

    all I can tell you because they cut my foreskin off at birth is to keep gently stretching it.

    slowly try opening the opening, gradually each day, until you have a full opening. apply gentle pressure, but not to the point of pain. In time, it will open more.

    You can try sitting in a warm bath and then apply the method described by the previous posters, BUT be carefull, if it hurts, STOP. Be very gentle with your tight foreskin.

    For info, it is not always necessary to circumsize your foreskin, but a surgeon can make a small cut in the skin, so it fits looser around your glans/penis.

    It's called Phimosis. I used to have it myself, but got circumsised recently. Not everyone needs to be circumsised, though. You might want to go to your doctor and he can prescribe you some steroid cream, to help loosten it with stretching exercises.

    As mentioned above steroid cream for stretching works well over time.If you want a quick fix a urologist can make a small dorsal slit to the franar band,but the foreskin may not want to stay over the head after that.

    If you have a tight foreskin, beware that if you retract it behind the rim of head and are unable to bring it back again, you need to go to the emergency at a local hospital ASAP. It is called paraphimosis.

    So, when you do retract it behind rim, you need to bring it forwards again as soon as possible before constriction of blood causes glans to inflate and harden to a point where you can't squeeze it to get foreskin over it again.

    If the exercises describe by folks above this post do work (they work for some, not for others), you will find that the tighness will reduce and you will eventually be able to comfortably leave foreskin retracted without fear of it strangulating the base of head.

    Or you could just have a one time solution and end all your woes with a circumcision. Foreskins and not meant to be tight - you are supposed to be able to retract them with ease for daily cleaning and maintenance. Yours is clearly defective. Why not get rid of it and get on with enjoying your penis!

    Whoa whoa whoa, no need for the knife just yet.

    I had a little of this problem, I could pull it back somewhat uncomfortably and it just wasn't fun to feel unless I was lubed somehow, and even then it felt so weird to have this tight ring pass over my tip.

    Then I was told by a guy to use vitamin E topical lotion/cream, so I started masturbating with it. My foreskin grew softer and more sensitive pretty quickly and also a little tougher regarding stretching. It took me a matter of days to notice more stretch, and within a couple weeks my problem disappeared.

    Consider how pliable our skin is and how easily it changes, before you go cutting it off :) Besides, masturbating is fun...

    Now all i use to jerk with (if anything) is any kind of skin oil including vitamin E and/or A. Really, just take care of it like this and it won't be long until your mobility is much increased. It's gotten to the point now where my skin moves all over the place ;)

    I recommend Burt's Bees apricot baby oil, it's great.

    If you have thousands to throw away on the surgery for it, sure. We're on the verge of a global depression, so that kind of money is very easy to find in just about everyone's home.

    Thanks for your replies.
    I will try just stretching it gradually and will also try the lotion or cream.
    I just hope I don't have to go to the hospital or the docs for anything, and the paraphismosis thing is scary as it seems like that is what almost happened before. :(

    Would E-45 do the trick then. It's all in the house next to a few Nivea's and i'm really uneducated about this stuff ;P

    Just cut it off - it'll look and feel so much better for it.

    :hitwithrock:It's the truth - very few men I've spoken with ever regret having a circumcison done as an adult on a problem foreskin. If stretching doesn't work and you have a long foreskin that interfers with sexual intercourse, then why not get it removed?
