Strange question, but here goes. I'm in tact as you can guess, and starting to get pretty "active". Well, I have extreme trouble retracting my skin, and I've started stretching exercises. Well I may have sex before those actually show any results. I plan on using a condom for this, and I've read everywhere you need to retract your skin to use one. Well, I can't really. So does this mean I can't do anything until I can retract? Or can they be used without retracting. Help!
Foreskin and sex
Penetration would be easier if you're able to retract but other guys who are uncut have shared here that they don't retract before putting on the condom. Try it, good luck!
try to pull the skin forward and hold the tip of forskin while putting on condom ??? my fiance did it but it takes practice~~
Not strange at all, pj56. If you are intact but largely unretractable, you will want to slip the condom over the penis without attempting retraction. Before intercourse make sure that your GF is sopping wet, and have lubricant on hand to facilitate easy thrusting. If the vagina becomes too dry, the force of thrusting might force the foreskin back, behind the glans, despite the presence of the condom. IF that causes pain or a feeling of strangulation, you must remove the condom and force the foreskin back over the glans before continuing.
After you achieve normal, free movement of the foreskin back and forth over the glans, you may prefer to retract while slipping on the condom, then, before pulling the condom all the way down the shaft, allowing the foreskin AND the condom to pull forward again, over the glans. Then pull the rest of the condom down over the entire penile shaft. This will give you the possibility of moving both the foreskin and the condom in tandem with each thrust and withdrawal, thus maximizing the advantage of being intact.
Some men, of course, have a very short foreskin, which would explain the suggestion of complete retraction before slipping on the condom. Without lengthening their foreskin through stretching exercises, they are largely incapable of the dynamic movement of foreskin and condom described above.
In effect, you will have to determine your preferences based upon your particular circumstances. There is no one size fits all when it comes to condoms and the foreskin. Part of the joy of becoming sexually active is the delight of getting acquainted with your individual body.
