Re: is this possible??

yes, paraphimosis is getting the foreskin stuck, so it can't be pulled back over the head. the foreskin swells from damage, and can cut off the circulation to the head. it is a medical emergency. ok, I've scared you enough. you should not let that stop you one bit. the real problem is that your foreskin needs stretching, so that it goes back and forth easily, hard or soft. there is a sticky at the top of the Men's Health board, which has excellent, easy instructions, which work 99% of the time, or better.
now, if paraphimosis happens to you, which is very unlikely, since you can skin back soft, there are things you can do. one is squeeze the blood out of the head with your fingers, so that it is smaller. you can usually get the foreskin back over the head then. if not, try baby oil, or cooking oil. if that doesn't work, get yourself to the hospital, before the circulation gets entirely cut off. they can do a dorsal slit, so that you don't lose anything.
