HELP! - Uncut/Uncircumsized question

I am uncut and I recently lost my virginity and during intercourse the skin right under my head got slightly cut or torn. I didn't use a condom, but I don't know if that has anything to do with it. It doesn't hurt me right now, but i'm pretty sure it will the next time I have sex (which is not going to be for a while probably).

I saw this on loveline once when a guy called in with a similar problem saying that his uncut penis like got torn/split slightly in the skin area right under the head during sexual intercourse and that from then on, sex hurt for him. The guy on loveline said it was because when the uncut penis is thrust into the vagina, the foreskin is pulled back and sometimes it gets pulled back so far that the area under the head where it is attached to tears a little.

Is this true? Is there any way to prevent this? Will it heal or will this permanently affect my sex-life and happen every time I have sex?

ALL info would be greatly appreciated.

Re: HELP! - Uncut/Uncircumsized question

Same thing happened to me the first time. It's because your skin (frenulum) hasn't been accustomed to this amont of stretching. It can still happen if sex is too aggressive or if the vagina gets dry. So make sure you're lubed up the next time.

In the mean time, when/if you masturbate, pull the skin back when you're warmed up and give it a good long stretch each time. You'll be just fine.

SDP is right, stretch out that skin some and things should be OK. Nothing to worry about except maybe more lubrication and a condom. Sorta sounds like a friction tear to me!

Thanks a lot for the help guys, but should I wait until the area is fully healed before trying to stretch it and such?

I think YES and be sure you keep the area clean while it's don't want an infection there. Also, lay off anything that would cause further tearing or injury.

Re: HELP! - Uncut/Uncircumsized question

Although I myself am uncut, I can't easily understand why this tearing would occur. It's certainly true that if the foreskin hasn't been retracted before intercourse is begun, it's pulled back with penetration or after a thrust or two -- unless there's abnormal tightness that holds it in a "closed" position. But even if the skin stays pulled all the way back for the duration of the act, there shouldn't be so much stretching of the frenulum as to cause a tear. --Obviously it can happen, as you've related. I think there must have been much less lubrication than there should have been, and since this was your first & only time, maybe you just weren't aware of the "shortage." Evidently the two of you didn't provide enough naturally, and didn't add enough additionally. That's just my impression, of course. Make sure you have an additional lube for both of you to use next time. I won't touch on the question of why you didn't wear a condom, as I don't know the circumstances, and you surely must be aware of the considerations and (generally speaking) the risks involved. If you do wear a condom next time, you might want to put a little lube, even if just saliva, INSIDE the tip since you seem to be vulnerable in that area.

Re: HELP! - Uncut/Uncircumsized question

Here's a personal experience that im gonna share with you guys...

I'm uncut also but i've always takin' good care of the "package". Meaning the forsekin went all the way back and it didn't hurt...i've also had sex plenty of times and i knew, at least i thought i knew, that it wouldn't tear. Well, one night my girl was on top and we were using a lubricant. The exact lubricant was the brand "WET". Watermelon flavor in case your wonderin', anyhow...she was on top and i could barely just start feeling the lubricant wearing off. I didn't say anything thinkin' nothing would happen. BIG MISTAKE! On her way down <IMG SRC="">, i felt this really quick, sharp pain at the bottom of the head of my penis. I threw her off me (she landed somewhere in the middle of the room) then i looked down. I had all blood running all over my stomach and my bed. Come to find out...a little piece of skin connecting my foreskin to the basehead of my penis got torn. After a week or two of healing i was back to normal and having sex again. With that little piece torn and a little scarred over, its soo much more sensitive. It's so much better during sex. But eveyrones different, i guess...lata
