: Thanks for all the info.
: About working the skin down, i presume i'd be doing this while erect.
: But a problem with this may be that there is a little vein looking thing that's attached at the tip of the penis to the side of the foreskin (i believe). I'm afraid if i stretched it back too much it'll rip and bleed a lot. Would that be the case?
Your're welcome! What you are referring to sounds like the "frenulum" which basically attaches the foreskin to the penis head. Yes, you may become erect when doing the "stretching", be careful not to tear or pull the frenulum, you want to carefully and slowly work toward the point where you can fully retract the foreskin. Take your time, be patient and be sure to do this while in a hot/warm, bath. Although the stimulation may cause some masturbation remember that is not your goal. (Not saying that we don't enjoy that!) Hope this helps!
: Again, thank you so much for the info.
: : I'm uncut also so I think I know what may be going on here. First, its not a yeast infection or any kind of STD or infection at all. Sounds like you just need to do a little work with the foreskin to stretch it out a bit. The pain is probably related to the fact that the head of your penis has been covered by the foreskin and isnt used to the stimulation and such caused by intercourse. Don't worry, this is pretty normal for us uncut guys. You need to work at stretching out the foreskin a bit so that it will move down over the head and become smooth, this will decrease any pain and will actually make intercourse easier. Do this by taking warm/hot baths and showers, gently stretch the foreskin as far down as you can without pain and repeat that, each time trying to go farther down. Eventually you'll notice a difference, keep this going for several months and you should stretch it out enough so that the pain is completely gone. Your penis head is VERY sensitive and should be, right now, he's not used to the stimulation and such which is why there is pain. Try exposing it to the air and gently rubbing it to decrease the pain and sensitivity. Yes, you might try some lubrication during sex and you will want to use some as you repeat this rubbing and exposing it to air and such. Every thing about you is going to want to masturbate when doing this, and although that is OK, your goal is to work only on the sensitivity of the head for a while. Don't worry about any of this, its perfectly normal and your equipment is just getting used to being used as it is supposed to. If you didn't use a condom (and you should be!) next time you have sex you may want to use one and see if that eases the pain until all this "exercise" is done. Keep us posted, and remember, take care of that penis, its the only one you'll ever have. Remember to always keep the area under the foreskin clean and practice good hygeine there. One day you'll be glad that you're uncut because I think our sensitivity and foreskin provide us with a great sex life!
