Anonymous asked: you've talked on this blog before about guys making their foreskins come back by strching out the skin there. i never had my foreskin removed, which is fine, and i dont mind my foreskin, except that there is a lot of it, and because i've tugged at it basically since i started masturbating , there's so much now that i kind of looks weird, and i'm worried it might affect my sensitivity, is there a way to make smaller without circumcision?
The “tugging” method to restore foreskin is usually a lot different than the natural stretching and tugging at a foreskin you likely would do during masturbation, or just regular touching of yourself, or any mild stretching at or playing with your skin. Manual stretching of the skin is intensive and highly consistent to have any noticeable effects, so unless you’ve actively been trying to extend your foreskin, it sounds like you may just have redundant prepuce (also known as redundant foreskin, overhang, or overhanging foreskin).
Redundant prepuce is the slight overhang or extra lip of skin extending beyond the end of the penis once the glans is covered. It is completely normal, and so long as you do not begin experiencing phimosis (hardening of the foreskin or opening of the foreskin preventing retraction or making retraction painful) there is absolutely nothing wrong with having some extra foreskin. If anything, this may increase your sexual sensitivity, as the glans and inside of the foreskin/the ridged band are the areas most packed with sexually sensitive nerve endings.
Here is a link to the foreskin “Coverage Index” notating different levels of coverage/length and detonating each a number should you be interested in placing yourself along a scale or seeing real-life examples of foreskin lengths and redundant prepuce (it should be noted that the first few rankings on the scale and their accompanying images are of those restoring their foreskins, not naturally born with that little coverage). The index includes actual pictures of genitals and is NSFW.
