Foreskin

I have a long foreskin and when i pull it back, where it is attached to penis bends my penis to the left. My penis obviously is longer than my foreskin if foreskin was able to form a bend in penis. Could i get it snipped of penis thru nhs or what can i do

Hi mate. It must be a real bummer having a long foreskin . I think your doctor will arrange for you to have your frenulum ( that bit of skin you mentioned ) cut.

There is a lot of wrong information being published about foreskins. Most source say the foreskin automatically retracts during erection. That is only the case with short foreskins.

The automatic retraction of the foreskin on erection depends on the length of the foreskin in comparison to the length of the penis. Foreskins only retract on erection if

1. the foreskin is shorter than the erect penis and

2. the foreskin is wide enough retract over the glans penis.

A full-length foreskin does not spontaneously retract on erection but may be retracted with one’s hand provided that the skin is loose enough to pass back over the head.

The part of a full-length foreskin that extends beyond the head is called the “overhang” or the acroposthion. The tip of the foreskin or acroposthion is highly innervated and has the most sensation. A long tapering acroposthion was regarded by the ancient Greeks as the epitome of male beauty.

When a full-length foreskin is retracted, folds of skin form around the base of the penis. When the foreskin is released the folds may unfold and push the foreskin forward into its normal position to recover the head. Some guys with long foreskins cannot keep them retracted except by holding it back. This is not usually considered to be a problem.

The full-length foreskin provides superior protection to the head of the penis. Its extra-long length helps to keep the head moist, soft, and sensitive. The full-length foreskin probably has more pleasure nerves and sensation. A longer foreskin has superior gliding action that helps in masturbation and intercourse. A longer foreskin probably has more pleasure nerves than a shorter foreskin.

All in all, a full-length foreskin is an extra blessing.

If you do not feel uncomfortable after erection , why are you worried . Slight left or right may bring more satisfaction to your sexual partner when penetrated and rubbed . If the glans is open and the foreskin glides through opening of vagina and during masterstroke the clitoris gets the touch and ecstasy, do not worry . If not meet a urologist get an examination. If you can send a picture here your problem could be more understood. What do you mean by nhs is not understood.

A bend in the Penis could be a sign of underlying issues. Definitely see your GP. If it is necessary your Doc can refer you for a circumcision on the NHS. It is day surgery and you will be in from early til late.

Good Luck

Its the foreskin must be too short cause penis wants to extend on but foreskin pulls penis to the left and has shaped a bit of a bow

Hi there. If it is even remotely painful. Irritating. Uncomfortable during intercourse then nhs will defiantly offer you a circumcision or release of the skins orogin. But on the good side a bend in the penis is a plus point with heterosexual intercourse as you are much more likely to touch upon that oh so mysterious g spot.. just remember if you do have a circumcision to remind the ladies (if you don't have a partner whilst you are going through this) that you have one as a circumcised penis has to be handled rather differently than an uncircumcised one. Good look,play on the pain angle as strongly as possible then you can get seen as an urgent case.

No, you should not need a catheter.

It sounds as though your frenulum is attached off-centre and pulls your penis to the left when it reaches the limit of retraction.

You may ask your doctor to cut the frenulum and that will solve your problem. It is not necessary or desirable to be circumcised.

I just watched a documentary on Netflix, it’s called “American Circumcision”. There is so much helpful information in that movie. The movie is definitely against circumcision and pro uncircumcision. There are techniques discussed in the movie for stretching the foreskin. I would recommend the movie to anybody, male, female, circumcised or uncircumcised. The movie is a real eye-opener as to how damaging circumcision can be. But also has details about stretching the foreskin which may be helpful.
