My foreskin won’t go over my helmet


My foreskin wont go over the helmet/tip of my penis, I can only pull it back so a slight bit is showing. I thought it was completely normal as I can masterbate fine and it never hurts, I’ve also had sex with my girlfriend and there was no issue what so ever. I thought it was normal until today when a conversation was sparked over a peperami and I realise it wasn’t, so I talked to a friend and he told me that I should have been able to stretch it all the way over my glands years ago. Any suggestions!? Do I even need to fix it or seek medical help?

Mine was same. Married had kids divorced never bothered me until later life. Went tighter and i mean tight. Stopped blood circulation. Had emergency circumcision 2days before my 60th birthday and it’s better than it ever was. Just wish I had got it done when I was a lad.

thanks a lot

You may live your whole life with a non-retractable foreskin. You may masturbate, have sex, father children, and so on.

You may clean non-retractile foreskin with a rubber-bulb ear syringe. Just fill the syringe with lukewarm water and squirt it into the foreskin.

You never have to do anything.

If you do decide that you want it to retract then manual stretching is what you should do.

It’s meant to retract for cleanliness, goes too tight will goes cangereen then you’re foreskin and Penis gone for good. Get Circumcised you’ll be a new man

That’s a bit of overthetop nonsense.

ive been fine for years until i found out that mine wasn't 'normal'

OK, if it’s fine, your option of accepting it as is, is OK too.

It’s meant to retract for pleasure and the mechanical function, which help a lot with sex and masturbation and makes it more pleasurable, as well as cleanliness and other reasons I guess.

If it doesn’t bother you and masturbation and intercourse are comfortable and satisfying, there’s no need to do anything. Natural smegma production will serve to keep the inside parts healthy. Just rinse off what you can.

That said, I think fixing it to work as designed is a better choice. is an interactive site at which to be coached through a self-administered, painless course of skin expansion. Once done, the result is permanent, fully preserving the foreskin while allowing easy and comfortable full retraction.

Do not fall for scare tactics that you are at medical risk as you are. More than 70% of the world’s males are intact, and many have your condition and have healthy sex lives.

thanks a bunch, ill have a look

I’ll be looking for your post.

Do you think that if I did get circumcised so my glands would be out that I wouldn’t be able to last as long in the bedroom?

It would be the biggest mistake of your life in regard to your body. The inner foreskin has more pleasure giving nerves than does the glans. Additionally, the glans would become calloused and give lesss an less pleasure over time. Go to the website I linked and I’ll coach ypu through the simple exercises to fix it.

so are you saying that i shouldn't get a circumcision?

Yes. Don’t. Your foreskin is there to enhance your sexual experience. Those who had it done in adulthood say the sex goes from full color to black and white. Simple exercises can fix the problem for life.

thanks a lot, really appreciate it

Well then, let’s get started. Meet me over at You need a plan.

It's not true that the inner foreskin has more nerves than the head of the penis. That's something all followers of the anti-circumcision sect proclaim but it's not true!

It is true that the inner foreskin has more nerve endings. They are contained in the Taylors ridged band. The anatomy of the foreskin was studied by Taylor, Lockwood and Taylor and was published in The British Journal of Urology in 1996 Here is a link

Noharm is biased. It's an anti-circumcision website!

Of course it is anti-circumcision. It’s based upon truth.

Is it? I don't think so.

Have you taken time to follow the links?

Only way to fix permanently is circimcision mate, some people will say stretching works and circimcision should be the last resort but the only way to permanently fix it is with circimcision, it's just a condition that needs fixing, I had the same as you it's called phimosis and I have been circimcised now for nearly 2 months just wish I had it done sooner

That was your choice to make, but it was based upon false information. Skin expansion is a proven science, frequently used in medicine.

DannyDi in reply to jimfromcalif

No it's not go away stop giving false information

jimfromcalif in reply to DannyDi

Read this:

It’s a medically proven science for which there is no honest dispute. Please desist from your false statements.

DannyDi in reply to jimfromcalif

Please go away and stop giving false hope, believe everything you read on the internet do you? Little child

jimfromcalif in reply to DannyDi

Did you read the link. Skin expansion is a proven science.

DannyDi in reply to jimfromcalif

It's not, yes it can be a short term cure but will not permanently fix it unless you want too spend time every single day of your life stretching it to ensure it doesn't tighten up again, and it takes ages before you even achieve this short term solution

jimfromcalif in reply to DannyDi

That is simply not true or doctors would not use the technique. The myth you cite comes from not allowing time for mytosis to take place. New tissue cells need time to grow, so if tension is applied for six weeks after achieving the growth goal, the growth is permanent. Circumcised men use the process to grow new foreskins, as part of a movement beginning in 1983. If you’d like to see an example, go to

Breast reconstruction for mastectomy victims is a very common application of skin expansion, as well as skin grafting for burn victims.

My experience in coaching men with tight foreskins got permanent results in as little as two months, about the same time frame as recovery from circumcision. My group found the same results in expanding short frenulums.
