How can I masturbate after circumcision?

BLOR profile image

I’m 17 years old and was circumcised about 4 weeks ago due to phimosis (and yes I know I know “a circumcised penis is a crippled penis”). When I used to masturbate with a foreskin I don’t think I did it the orthodox way everybody else did it because I didn’t use my hand and I know it sounds weird but I would like fuck the bed. However with my circumcised penis I can’t seem to do this and reach a climax. This is mostly due to the fact that it’s either too dry or when I do put lube on my wet penis doesn’t slide along the dry bedsheet and gets kind of stuck. So to cope I’ve been making homemade fleshlights which do seem to do the trick however there’s only so much bubble wrap in the house to make one and I’ll eventually run out. I would enquire into purchasing a real fleshlight but couldn’t ever buy one without my mum and dad knowing. So I’m really stuck now it seems as though masturbation is more of a chore now and I can’t enjoy it. I’d just like any suggestions for an easy, reliable way to masturbate and reach orgasm. Thanks

Foreskin-deprived males who try to masturbate without lubrication are likely to suffer friction irritation and pain.

The best lubrication for masturbation is the human foreskin. The highly innervated, erogenous, internally-lubricated foreskin is secured only at each extremity and is not attached to the underlying shaft of the penis. It is internally lubrication with lymphatic fluid and glides up and down the shaft of the penis without friction. The foreskin is filled with pleasure nerves that are stimulated by motion. This makes it ideal for masturbation. Foreskinned males usually do not need additional lubrication.

Circumcision de-foreskins the penis, shortens the available skin and makes the residual skin taut and immovable. Nineteenth Century doctors thought that would make masturbation impossible. It did not actually make it impossible but it made it harder to do and less fun.

Circumcised guys who try to masturbate without lubrication are likely to experience friction irritation and pain.

If you don’t have a foreskin, then you will need external lubrication to compensate for the loss of your foreskin. You will need to learn to slide your hand up and down the shaft. Some males purchase a personal lubricant, which is designed to provide lubricant for sexual intercourse. Others may use petroleum jelly, such as Vaseline (which is greasy), baby oil, vegetable oil, or saliva. Some foreskinned males also like to use lubrication, although it is not strictly necessary.

Products with harsh and irritating chemicals should be avoided. Shampoo and body wash have been reported to cause irritation.

Soap dries out the natural oils so it should be avoided as a lubricant. It should be used only in an emergency.

Obviously, it is better to have a foreskin.

Stop posting these stupid, irresponsible and unhelpful comments. You have no idea what you’re taking about and are giving bad advice across this message board.

Four weeks was a bit soon, the recommended wait is six weeks. Anyway, as you have discovered it is a different experience. The method now is more of a stroke than a pull if that makes sense ? If I where you, head to a local supermarket that sells clothes and purchase a cheap silk type nightie or similar for a 'friend' and use that to stroke the Penis. Just remember to wash it afterwards.

Rub the open glans with lub

First off, it is your penis and your decision on what to do with it. Secondly, the method you are describing is known as prone masturbation (i.e. laying down thrusting against the mattress) and can cause potential problems later since there is a greater pressure out on the base of the penis. I'd encourage you put in the effort to move away from prone masturbation and eventually you will be able to find pleasure in other methods.

Now, on to your issue. I'd highly recommend investing in some sort of lubricating material to assist with the dryness and wait a proper amount of time before attempting to masturbate. Lubrication and a different method together should help. It may seem like a chore now, but the longer you go without the more receptive you'll be to the newer methods. Hopefully this helps.

I'm afraid there's misinformation in some of the answers to your question. I believe you'll be able to fully enjoy prone masturbation again. It just takes time to adjust to your 'new' penis. I have known circumcised men who masturbate that way, against their pillows or the bed itself, without lubrication, and they do just fine. Cheers! - Jeremy,
