    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    The size of the inner foreksin is related to the size of the glans. When hard, if you are cut, but kept all of your inner foreksin, your line would be at same distance from rim of head as the tip of head is from rim of head. (roughly speaking). Somewhere between 1.5" and above of inner foreksin, you would have a "high" circ.

    If your inner foreksin is only half the length of the distance between rim and tip of glans, then you are "medium" cut, and if it is less than 1/4 inch, you are a "low cut".

    Well, the nomenclature has entered the popular lexicon and your definition, while it might make sense to you, isn't the accepted practice. You're talking about it from where dxjnorto's eyes are looking at his cock, or when you're on your back with an erection surveying down toward your toes.

    Convention is to look at the cock as if you were the photographer or admirer eyeing a naked subject standing up. If the circumcised shaft skin and inner foreskin remnant bunches, it's loose. If it's taut, it's tight. If there is little or no (<1 cm) inner foreskin left, it's a "low" circumcision. If there is more than 2-3 cm of inner foreskin left when erect, it's a "high" circumcision.

    Here is an example of a "high & tight" circ at rest.

    Gotcha.

    At least it doesn't have all lumpy scars and shit on it--luck of the draw. Would be a lot better if it looked like this though:

    This is a very interesting thread. Wish mine was high and tight,but guess I fall in the loose cut category.

    Which style am I? I'm not sure and I figured y'all could help me figure it out how I am circumcised.

    I think maybe moderately circumcised, but I'm not sure.

    Lorfan, I would put you in a moderate circ (from your flaccid picture), and medium-high location of scar.
