| | HELP!? phimosis and erection difficulties
I've done a lot of research on this recently, because a month or so ago, I noticed that through watching porn and hearing stuff in sex ed, etc. that the foreskin is meant to be able to pull back over the head. now, my foreskin does not do this at all, when flaccid or erect, and its got me worried.
I've been trying for about a month to pull it back by pulling back as far as i can without discomfort (which is only about a 5mm diameter) and also grabbing both sides of the ring thingo which restricts the foreskin from stretching and pulling that apart. ive read in previous threads that one of the best ways is get fingers underneath the foreskin and pull apart slowly, but they dont fit, so that wont work. i do all this in a warm bath as often as i can by the way.
it has become a problem for me recently, because i have got a girlfriend, and we have been doing a fair bit of sexual activity latly, involving everything up to and including sex, but my problem is is that because of the foreskin, my penis is reallyyy unsensitive, and anything i do with my girlfriend isn't as good as it could be. for example, i will often get an erection, but then within a matter of seconds or pulling out of sex, it goes flaccid and takes 10-15minutes to get an erection again (the sex is protected). in saying this however, i think there may also be the factor that ive only just started doing all this sex stuff a matter of a few weeks ago, so its not something ive done often, although i will be expecting to be doing a lot more of it in time to come.
another thing, i have recently just stopped masterbating using the prone method (Traumatic Masturbatory Syndrome) which i discovered was a dangerous way of masterbating, so i switched to the conventional method about a month ago, which is still getting a bit of getting used too.
so basically, what i want to know is, what is the best way for me to be able to stretch my foreskin? because at the moment, it is giving me veryy limited sexual pleasure (which makes my girlfriend thinks its her fault, which sucks :/ ), and i am worried about infections underneath the foreskin. i am also afraid to tell anyone, because my parents will be suspicious if im asking about it now that ive got a girlfriend, and i dont want them knowing that im doing any sexual activities with her.
