Re: penis low sensitvity

It sounds like the Peyronie's correction surgery may have caused nerve damage or more scarring. Either or both of these may have reduced your penis sensitivity--on top of the Peyronie's damage. Is there a large numb spot remaining from the Peyronie's or the surgery?

Fortunately, there are things you can do to increase the sensitivity of you penis, so that you can enjoy sex again. Usually the first option is pharmaceutical, but there could be problems with that. There are a number of reports (from people on the internet) that they experienced a coincidence of developing Peyronie's not long after using Viagra as if it caused it. It could be that its mode of action or a side effect accelerates the malignant process of Peyronie's disease. It could just be the friction from using their penises with the drug. These men's suspicions have not yet been substantiated in medical literature, so it could definitely just be coincidence. Or it could be real and apply to all "male enhancement" supplements and herbs. It's not even known how many of them work (if/when they do). So you might be taking a big risk with any pharmaceutical or herbal male enhancement solutions to increase your sensitivity and arousal.

This last option is controversial within the American medical community, but it is the most effective thing you can do to increase the sensitivity of your penis: nonsurgical foreskin restoration. (Technically one can't actually restore foreskin but it's possible to regrow something very similar. The foreskin is essentially just a continuation of the skin of the penis. Unless you have excessive dorsal AND ventral nerve damage prior to your circumcision scar, you should be able to regrow new nerve endings in the new skin. You can't regrow the specialized fine touch receptors or all the original connective tissue structure exactly, but nothing else can give you new nerve endings.) It's obviously a big commitment. It has to be done very gently and very slowly or the skin can tear and scar. It takes a LONG time (1-3 years); and it alters what your manhood looks like (when flaccid--with an erection foreskin retracts only making the penis wider behind the glans, so it only appears as increased girth). But there is no other way to grow new nerve endings on the penis. You can read more about it elsewhere on the internet. Foreskin restoration seems like the most promising way to prolong your sex life.

There are contraindications like STD infection, latent infection (HSV/HPV), or the precise nature of your damage as well as the idiopathic scarring (that is Peyronie's disease), so it's absolutely worth consulting a urologist before beginning. Unfortunately, the majority of American urologists don't know anything about foreskin restoration, so you'll have to find one who does to talk to about it. And I have found that just because a nurse or receptionist says that a urologist can advise you about foreskin restoration does not mean that he actually can, so it seems like you need to insist first to ask the doctor personally whether s/he will be capable of advising about it before you seek (and pay for) a consultation about it.

One key advantage of foreskin restoration (and foreskin generally) is that for increasing sensitivity, it drastically reduces the pressure that you need to feel adequately sexually stimulated. High friction sex or masturbation can definitely accelerate penis desensitization (that comes with aging too) and it can even exacerbate Peyronie's. Plaques in the penis that are like very minor Peyronie's are actually fairly common in men with age. This is one of the benefits of not being circumcised that people hardly ever consider in America because of the prevalent ignorance about foreskin (especially among medical professionals who should know better but often don't know much about it besides how to cut it off).
