    Hi,
    Havnt been very active on site, more of a lurker than poster:tongue: but anywho thats off topic:eek:.

    The thing is as long as i can remember i have never been able to fully retract my foreskin, as a teen i didnt know that you could. Anyway a few days ago i had a proper look to see what was problem, ill explain as well as i can as ide rather not have penis shots on internet :redface:.

    While flaccid i can pull it back a bit but the head bulges out, behind the opening 'slit' there is a red 'muslce' like cord that i tihnk is connecting the penis head to the foreskin, at least as much as i can see, also there has always been a red coloured line going up the back of my penis( starting at pelvis and wokrking up to that o so sensitive spot =P ).

    So far this has never caused pain except when trying to retract, nor has it lead to erectile pain etc but i still would like to get it sorted.

    Ty for any help you can ofer:tongue:

    Hey there,

    I had a tight foreskin and just pulled on it regularly 2-3 times a day - in the shower, or during masturbation and eventually it just gave way and stretched. It took time, but I did not have to resort to surgery. I've learned that lots of men have tight foreskins - as long as it does not cause you pain, and you can use your penis.
    Anyway, have a look at this forum: it's very helpful and common sensical.

    How to Fix Phimosis and Tight Foreskins, Solutions That Work

    Good luck.

    Take a look at the sites here, maybe you can give us the best example of what you are talking about

    the red colored line, that nobody ever knows what it's called :smile:
    Perineal raphe

    Does sound kind of like phimosis, tight foreskin and possibly some bridging.

    Bridge skin can happen in both cut and uncut penises
    Circumcision -
    Skin bridge -
    Botch Gallery 1 - skin bridges

    although now that I reread your post you might be talking about the
    Frenulum of prepuce of penis - if it's on the underside of your penis

    (I'm not advocating or condemning circumcision, despite a few of the links linking to circumcision)

    also
    Frenulum breve

    Hope I helped, at least a little :redface:

    The red " muscle" as you call is is called the frenulum. If not long enough, it keeps the foreskin near the top of head and prevents easy/full retraction. A very minor surgery can detach it from the glans and let it stretch down. It si called a frenulumectomy. It doesn't remove much frenulum, but as it stretches down, it becomes thinner and far less prominent. You can talk to an urologist to get it down. If your foreskin is otherwise elastic/wide enough to pass over the widest portion of your glans, you should then be able to easily retrcat your foreksin fully and have a fully functioning penis.

    Hiya cmuscles. Your penis situations sounds almost exactly the same as mine - I can only pull the foreskin back when soft, and when I do so the head bulges out. I'm opting for cicumcision, but I looked at all the options and tried other stuff before that - and you should do. For many people stretching can solve the problem, so only have the operation if you've exhausted all other possibilities. Definetly speak to your doctor about it as well. Good luck, man.

    Also, same as you, I didn't know that the foreskin was supposed to retract until quite late on :tongue: I just assumed all the guys in porn were circumcised and that's why their penises didn't look like mine(!)

    It's amazing what stretching does. I had a short foreskin naturally.. and now it covers my head when semi hard. You really can solve so much just by being committed to gently pulling when in the shower, bath, sauna at a gym etc. Do it as much as you can. You will find a lot more flexibility with your foreskin. It's definitely worth fighting for! :)

    I actually broke my frenulum having sex when I was young. She was super super tight and while trying to get it in one day it went POP. That was funny.

    It was really a blessing as it made retraction much easier.

    If that's your problem, I'd definitely opt for having the frenulum detached over full circumcision. It must be an in office procedure that is done in 10 minutes with a fairly short recovery.

    That "cord" is your frenulum. If the frenulum is too short then you can't retract. Its called "frenulum breve".

    You can stretch it or you can have a minor operation.

    Lol this reminds me of when I was younger. I didn't realize you could pull it all the way back until I was 16 or 17. I guess it just used to be so tight, maybe it loosened up from jacking off so much, but one day I was like, hm I wonder how far it can go without hurting myself. Pretty much since then it rolls back super easy, never had a problem. Just play with yourself some more :)

    I was the same as sfu above. My foreskin was very tight also until I was about 16. I can remember lying on my bed one night trying to pull the foreskin back, it was helluva painful and although I was determined I could only get it halfway over the head. The next evening I managed to get it skinned back completely at which point the foreskin, which was still very tight, got wedged under the rim of the head of my cock and then I couldn't get it back up again which cause some panic which lasted until the erection subsided a bit lol.

    The piece you describe is the frenulum. It is the most sexually responsive part of the average man who has one.
    You can tell if it is too short. When you try and retract, if it is too short, it will bend the head down toward your toes.
    If this is not the problem, and you don't want to opt for circumcision, you can get betamethasone cream from your doctor. Applied to the outside of the foreskin, it will thin it out. Combined with stretching, it will have the typical stubborn non-retractable foreskin retracting in six to eight weeks.
    Best of luck to you.
