Um need some help here.

Yeah my foreskin was still stuck to the glans of my penis and it took me months and months, i guess I would slowly pull it back until it came off? And now it finally came off and, um I don't know how to describe it but i pulled back the foreskin and there is my glans. But the foreskin won't stay back it's like there's to much or something. Just wondering about this. And what do I need to do to my frenelum?

Some foreskins do not stay back. That's just what some do. Considering that it's your first time retracting it the skin is so used to staying forward that it naturally wants to do that. If you were to retract it for months it will start to stay retracted full time but i dont see a reason to.

If i keep retracting it will it stay back?

Why do you want it too stay back?

If your glans is not greater in diameter than the shaft, it is not likely to stay back.

Foreskin – full length.

You are blessed with a protective, highly-innervated, erogenous full-length foreskin. Many unforeskinned guys would envy your foreskin. You display great wisdom in wanting to avoid circumcision,

You should thank your parents for protecting your physical integrity. Because of your physical integrity you will be able to have sex the way nature intended it.


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.

You may flush out your long foreskin with a rubber-bulb type ear syringe.

Okay thanks!

It doesn’t have to stay back or need to stay back.

So penis come in many different shapes and sizes. I had the issue the I have a large penis head, thin shaft when fully erect., because of this only way I could retract foreskin was to retract it before an erection. Once I was erect the skin got stuck behind the glans, It was tight but not so tight it stopped blood flow. When erect it was impossible to get skin half ways so I had classic Phimosis.

This was one of the reasons I got circumcised. I am very happy about the decision.
