    Is it true and is it normal enough that the sensitivity of the glans decreases (slightly) with age, especially when the glans becomes accustomed to external stimuli (water, hands, underwear, vagina during sex etc.) ? I refer above all to the difference between the average sensitivity during puberty/adolescence and later, when one becomes an adult. I do not know if it is natural or even necessary that this happens, but I ask because I noticed this and in fact I feel little/less discomfort in rubbing the glans on some "surfaces" or objects, such as sheet or pillow (for example see the following photo: "https://ibb.co/bENauH" )...

    I'll say I agree with that. My interpretation was 'it takes more to get me off as I get older'. I'm sure some is sensitivity & some is mental.

    This is true for me. In my teens, my cock head was super sensitive so JO was soft touch and even water hitting my uncovered head (I'm uncut) could almost feel "too much". I also had leg shaking/weakening orgasms almost all the time and was also super sensitive after cumming.
    This has gradually changed. Today I can touch my head without it getting too much stimulation and I can treat it a little "ruffer". :)

    Enjoyed it the and enjoy it now. Just different.

    Oh yes, I agree with all the above. When I started wanking (masturbating) around 10 or 11 years my cock was super sensitive and also became erect if I just took it out and pushed the skin back. My orgasms were very intense and I often wanked off 3 times in a day. It's a very different story now. How I wish I was young again!

    This is the very reason I started wearing the senslip that covers your penis. I can tell you from experience that is does make a difference. I have been wearing this everyday for about a year now and I can tell a difference in the sensitivity and well as the color of my glans has slowly changed. Highly recommend it!

    Noticed through restoration. I purposely moisturize and keep sensitive. When I get a hand job and it’s done correctly, my whole body arch’s and shakes. It’s intense.

    I moisturize my penis daily and it keeps sensitive that way.

    Any moisturizer will do. Be sure it's a safe one without parabens. Most face moisturizers are good.

    Thanks for your reply. I have some Nivea Men Creme. It's very gently on the face. I've looked at the ingredients and don't see Parabens mentioned so I'll give it a try. Thanks.

    You'll notice the results only after a few weeks. At least I did but I'm circumcised.

    Good, I'm not circumcised. I guess I should just rub it well into my glans and obviously keep the foreskin over it as I always do anyway.Would you use it twice a day, say morning and night?

    I would expect an uncirc penis that is 'always' covered wouldn't need to be lotioned, as the body self lubricates in that scenario. of course always an exception to any rule, but now you've got me curious @tallandslim67 . Do you have full coverage when you are 'covered' or does some glans normally stick past your foreskin?
    edit: just looked at your album - wonderful coverage there & you seem quite shiny & soft. Not sure I'd lotion a healthy glans & mess with it's ecosystem in there.

    Hi, I have 100% coverage all the time so I find what you say is perhaps good advice. Maybe I shouldn't bother moisturizing at all!

    @tallandslim67 I don't think you'd benefit. the uncut from birth guys are often like a dried out orange rind. That's not you at all.

    Yes, that's a good description..god bless them. I think I'll leave it alone and save the cream for my face after shaving!

    I usually use lube now to get going, never did as a teenager just rubbed the foreskin over the head, but that doesn’t do it for me anymore.

    My foreskin normally covers about a third of my head when flaccid. The uncovered part is visibly drier and I find it less sensitive.

    I've always liked lube, even when young, I'm cut. Last few years I use warm coconut oil to jack with. Leaves skin soft and glans still sensitive. Sensitivity may have changed, but I'm still too sensitive at times. Some times I wear a single ball glans ring, not while jacking or during sex. Looks great, feels great, glans flair out a little more.
    I wouldn't recommend coconut oil with some toys.
