About the smegma issue, several things.
As you've been told, it's normal, and it's not shit or filth, so there's nothing there that will hurt you.
Are you taking antibiotics as a result of your doctor's treatments? If so, for some reason, smegma will increase whilst you are taking them.
Also, when you are washing under your foreskin, I hope you are only using clear water, coz soap will destroy the natural ph balance that should be present. It's a body part, just like the rest of your body, you're not scrubbing down for a sterile chamber.
Also, having a wash once a day with clear water is plenty, you're not chasing satan here. There are supposed to be natural oils and such under your foreskin, continued washing is, as you've found out going to dry it out and your body will kick into over drive the replace what's supposed to be there.
ChristiaanOriginally Posted By: bemyguestCan erectile dysfunction be caused by really tight foreskin?
The doctor tells me everything seems fine, but I always seem to lose my erection when jacking off so I have this speculation that it might be caused by my tight foreskin?
Your foreskin doesn't have anything to do with it mate. Generally, when you wank, you either are focused on your own building pleasure or your fantasy. If you're going soft mid-wank, after getting a full stiffie, then your focus or attention is wandering and you're body no longer has a reason to maintain your stiffie - cos there are no more of those brilliant sexy thoughts going through your mind.
I would suspect that at mid-wank you're thinking and wondering about it going soft again - and then it does. Fix your mind on that cute boy or girl you fancy, imagine what you'll do with each other, and just wank on.
ChristiaanOriginally Posted By: sdpYou don't need soap to clean under the foreskin. A good rubbing with water is sufficient. You might be making it worse by stripping the skin of oils having it respond with an overproduction of oils.
Spot on. Whilst some lads can get away with using soap or whatever to clean under their foreskin, virtually every sex-ed and hygiene class I've ever been in have told boys and girls to NEVER use soap to wash under your foreskin or inside a girl's vulva or labia. I know if any soap is left, it will give you a really wicked turn.
As for odour, mate, all bodies have an odour. Your first sexual contact with a girl will bring that fact home to you. Washing simply cleans away dirt and keeps our body odour under control.
There's no right or wrong way to wank yourself and it certainly is very pleasureable to have a toss with your foreskin fully forward over your knob. Lots of lads, me included, wank this way.
If pulling your foreskin down doesn't give you pleasure or it doesn't work, then concentrate on wanking the way that brings that brilliant result.
It's about pleasure mate, not technique.
ChristiaanOriginally Posted By: stoneI have a short foreskin and I tried manual stretching my foreskin. Thank god now it's covering half to 3 quarter of the glans when it's soft.
1) Is there a way to speed up the de-keritinization process of the glans? (as my foreskin is short, it has been exposed, therefore the keritinization)
2) the back of my foreskin can now fully covers the glans when it's soft, but not the front part of it. the front and side parts of the foreskin is almost long enough to cover the head, but it wouldn't stay there, it's very loose. Is there a way to "tighten" the tip of my foreskin so that the foreskin stays fully covering the glans? I really want my foreskin to fully covers the head. I love the look of such foreskin tip, and it also helps the de-keritinization process.
Don't worry about the keritinization, that's the body's defense when your knob, which is supposed to be an internal part, rubs in your kit. Once your knob is covered, it will slowly go away, maybe not quite like it had never seen the light of day, but it will decrease.
Ask anyone who has a moustache. If they shave it off the skin the hair was covering is quite sensitive. Grow it back and the protected sensitivity returns.
Once you increase your foreskin length, it will stay covering things. The tip can be narrowed surgicaly (I'm not sure how that's spelt in English), but it most likely is something you'll have to go in your kit for as it would be an elective procedure - at least it would be here in the EU. It's done by taking off a diamond shaped piece of skin on the underside of your foreskin.
Go see your GP mate and get him to write you a perscription at the chemist for Betamethazone 5%, ointment or cream. That seems to be the most sure fire aid to stretching the tip. From what I've read, whilst it will do some of the work with an application, the best results come with its use with manual stretching too.

ChristiaanQuote:Yes I do use liquid soap. It irritates my penis head and makes it really red, however it's not itchy or sore. Sometimes the top burns when soap gets in the urethra though.
I have used baby oil/olive oil but I found that being waterproof, it doesn't wash off so it just causes further bacteria build up and more smegma. Same with lotions...Is this normal?
The reason that the soap only irrritates your knob and nowhere else is because you're not getting it all off your knob and the inside of your foreskin and then it is trapped under your foreskin when it returns forward. The skin covering your knob and the inside of your foreskin is completely different, more like the inside of your mouth, that's why it's generally not advised to use soap there.
As far as having trouble rubbing the smegma off, how often are you retracting your foreskin to wash? If its not daily try skinning bac more often to wash. Soap will also have the affect of drying out any oils in the smegma making a right bitch to clean away.
Your body also also tends to change in cycles. Teen years are quite different than other times of life.
As for that sticking, your foreskin doesn't slide back, it inverts or turns inside out, so what you're feeling is your foreskin sticking to your knob as you pull it right back. Again, this can be either the frequency you retract and/or the soap.

I'd definately recommend going to another doctor, if any case to discuss what the other doctor did was common procedure. Don't mention which doctor it was, and try to go to a different practice altogether.
Might be grounds for a malpractice/harrassment suit there. Asking to watch her urinate sounds like a borderline breach of human rights.
Also, I'm assuming by "woman's penis" that you mean vagina, right?
Her mother pested her about going because she is 23 and her mother said it is a good thing just to have a check up, but my GF didn't complain anything is wrong. I can't imagine anybody being able to convince her to go to any other of this type of doctor.
By woman's penis, I mean the part of a girl that looks like a little boy's penis but she doesn't pee there. There are other names for it but I wanted to not be vulgar here.
Her mother pested her for years to go to a doctor who specializes in women's private parts and this was her experience - with herlegs held up in the air and all her private parts exposed, things that are private only between she and I, that even her moter hadn't seen since she was a baby wearing nappies or being bathed.
He put his hands where only she and I touch and then wanted to see her pee but se wasn't able to because she already peed just before the appointment. He showed her a long metal thingie that is used to stretch women's pee opening and it scared her very badly, so I can tell you she won't go again to this kind of docter unless I am there to protect her.
Touching and kissing her lips and around her woman's penis and pee opening are part of our sex play and she is afraid the doctor would change the feelings that are so delicious now for her down there.
I can't believe I am telling these things. She would die if she knew, but the doctor made me worry.
My GF and I have been living together for almost a year. Her mother kept hounding her to get an exam of her sexual area which my GF has never wanted to do before.
Everything was all right down there except for one thing. The doctor told my GF that the opening between her lips where her pee comes out is too small. He wants her to come back and he will use something to stretch it open more. My GF already told him no way, she doesn't want her pee hole made bigger.
We only have one bthroom, so we are in there together lots of times. She pees for a lot longer than me, but it sounds like it comes out OK, pretty much like mine when I sit down, just kind of softer.
I have to help her when she takes those home preg tests, so I've watched while she holds her lips apart and pees so the test gets held in her pee. Sometimes i've wiped her pee hole and lips and the place where her pee comes out seems big enough.
How big is the hole supposed to be on a girl? Does it hurt if it's smaller?
