I am nearly 16. Never been told anything about my penis. Never pulled it back because I did not know it was supposed to. Just seen my first porn film and seen a foreskin go back. Too embarassed to talk to my mates about it, or even worse my parents! I have tried slightly to pull it back but it hurt, so I stopped. I need to know if I am OK and what I should do. Please help. Gary
Painful when I pull it back
You need to work on stretching the forskin. Please look around in these threads as there is a lot of information with regards to stretching. Also please take a look at the Male Anatomy thread up top. It also has info and pictures. After you look around come back and ask for any clarifications if needed.
Hi, Gary. Your story is a mirror of my own experience at your age, except that you have the great facility of the internet ... which is an incredible advantage. Imagine being able to confide only in doctors who were then (and still are) woefully ignorant about penile anatomy and function! Take SDP's advice: explore the many similar messages on this site and before long your knowledge will exceed that of most doctors. Then you'll be able to solve your retraction problem, your confidence will be restored, and you'll be able to advise other young men who are in a similar situation.That said, you want to pull OUT, away from your body, while you stretch the foreskin opening. That allows you to "stretch" the opening without pain. This photo demonstrates the sort of thing you wish to do ... http://www.foreskin.org/46-33-03.jpg When you can slip a finger or two inside the foreskin opening ... pull out, also, at right angles to your penile shaft, as though you were trying to open a pillow case or a plastic sack. Pull firmly but gently ... just to the point of pain, but not beyond. Hold the "stretch" for up to five minutes and repeat the exercise two-three times a day.By the way, what is the approximate diameter of your foreskin opening ... and how far have you succeeded in pulling the foreskin over the glans?
