My first post here was about advice on getting circumcised and wanting to hear the different experiences of others who got cut later in life. It's actually how I found this site in the first place. Here is the link if you're interested - Circumcised? advice please.... , but if you don't want to check it out, the short version of it is, I'm in my 20s, and basically, I never really retracted while hard. I was told about cleaning, and have no issues retracting while soft, and I've never had an infection or anything. (For those who want to avoid reading most of this, you can go directly to my question. The first few words of of the question will be highlighted in blue) But growing up nobody told me that it's ok to do the same when you're hard and I didn't see it anywhere. I didn't have that type of closeness in my family and I haven't seen many dicks in person other than my closest friends growing up and they were both cut. And the guys in the porn vids were cut too. And to be honest it retracted very few times just by mistake but I would quickly put it back because I thought it wasn't supposed to happen and didn't want it to hurt. Well, before I made that post I had already started trying to retract regularly to get a sense of how it would be if I got circumcised, and it was going well but obviously still pretty tight. not phimosis level tight, just tight because it was not used to having to stretch in that way. Well ever since then I have pretty much been retracting every chance I get whether I'm hard or not. I try to stay pulled back as long as I can. I have my head exposed while taking a shower or bath but usually have to adjust the water because it's so sensitive. And I only jerk off with my head exposed now. I have not jerked off the other way for probably a year. It was kinda tight, and would squeeze the crown at first and would go back really quickly but over time it stays back while masturbating. I have so much more movement if you can understand. It's like the strokes are so much deeper with the skin back and my head fully exposed. After a while I was thinking that maybe I don't want to get circumcised after all due to things I've read that make me rethink it. And that's when I came across things like autocircumcision or circumcision without cutting, which is basically when you force your skin to stay retracted. I like how it looks and everything seems to be fine with it but I have noticed these guys can retract really far behind their head and I can't. It didn't take that long to realize it's because my frenulum won't stretch that far which isn't surprising considering how many years my penis hasn't needed to stretch that particular part. From then on I started stretching my frenulum the most I could over a few months. I would rub the underside of my head with lotion and softly pull to stretch and would do the same when taking a bath. But at this rate I can't see my frenulum stretching that far anytime soon. So i was thinking of having my frenulum removed so I would be able to retract with ease and as far as I wanted. I've seen a lot of dicks like this but I'm not sure if they were born that way, ripped it when they were younger, or actually had it removed. I've seen pics & vids of guys retract really far back with a frenulum but that could be due to them retracting with an erection early on or just having a longer frenulum. Everyone is different. But I would consider having my frenulum removed if would allow me to stay retracted as if I'm circumcised. For instance, there's a shemale pornstar who is intact but doesn't have a frenulum. Like I said earlier I'm not sure if it was removed purposefully, by injury or born without it. I have 2 links below. As you can see she can pull back fully exposing the head and it stays there. This was the only person I could think of by name to give a visual. You wouldn't think this person isn't circumcised if you saw it like this and didn't know ahead of time. http://tsmariana.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/mariana-cordoba-shemale-cock-2.jpg https://images.shemaletubevideos.co...06/10304/378de04d7a9cb623f54f736c3b2eb291.jpg But my reason for this entire post, is to ask guys who remain retracted, how you do it. I cannot wear pants while I'm retracted because it's super sensitive. My head has gotten slightly less sensitive than it was though it definitely still is but the foreskin back behind the head is even more sensitive. And once it feels the pressure and rubs against anything it's too much to take. I've tried the softest cotton material i have and walk really slowly and it's still too much. I mentioned bathing earlier, I try to go in with my head exposed but even after adjusting the temperature it's just too much so I push it back over the head until my body is kind of used to it then I can expose the head again. And the same goes for when it's time to dry yourself with a towel. When the towel brushes up against my dick when I'm exposed it's just too much to take so I push it back over until I'm finished. So out of curiosity I'm interested to know how you guys dealt with that. I cannot imagine trying to go to work in that condition. And yet there's still a part of me that thinks if I get my frenulum cut maybe I should get circumcised as well. I have a lot of anxiety with this most likely because of things that happened when I was a kid. There were a lot of embarrassing things that happened to me. And honestly just the thought of being circumcised makes me hard. Even when I'm not in the mood for anything, if I think of it I'm instantly hard. When I retract I get hard. And in this short period of time I have noticed that my head has gotten a little bigger. When I wear, like cotton shorts or something you can see the outline of my head through my pants and I'm not even retracted. It is that prominent at times. And I don't ever remember seeing the outline of my head in clothing. And even though the circ rate here in the U.S. is dropping that doesn't change what I went through, and it doesn't change the mindset of the majority of women out there who think so many negative thoughts about intact guys. It's very ingrained. I often go to bed with my head exposed. More times than none I wake up with it back in place but there are times I wake up and I'm still retracted. I actually read that this can be bad and sometime the foreskin can get stuck meaning you will need to be circumcised. So I have actually been doing it more and more sort of like a passive way of forcing myself to get circumcised whether I make up my mind or not. Well, thanks for reading if you made it this far. And again please let me know how you stay retracted and if it's sensitive for you as it is for me. I thought about getting a glans ring to train it to stay back but again I can't let too many things touch it because it's too much to handle. If you have any thoughts, tips, or advice on being intact, retracting, removing frenulum, or circumcision and being circumcised please leave some feedback! And if it helps I don't have a "long" foreskin. Even when I'm soft a little less than half of my head is exposed. It doesn't cover my entire head. I don't know if that makes a difference to any of these options. Also I'm 6 inches, not really girthy, just normal. And my balls are average size. Thank you!
