Masturbation with retracted foreskin

Hi everyone,

I have been able to retract my foreskin, when erect, for nearly 6 months now. I had initially tried the stretching exercises mentioned, but stopped once I realized that I could retract my foreskin when erect without much of a fuss.

But this is where the issue is- I haven't been able to masturbate with my foreskin retracted. I don't use much lube, but I doubt that'll help much because my foreskin rolls up behind my shaft and coils up, and doesn't really look like it'll move at all. Whenever I've tried masturbating, I've also noticed my glans enlarge slightly (it's bigger than it is when I have an erection but don't masturbate), and fearing that my foreskin could get stuck behind the glans, I abort and pull my foreskin forward.

Otherwise, retraction while erect is painless, and I'm able to pull the foreskin back fairly quickly. I can keep the foreskin back as long as my erection lasts. So, is the above situation something to worry about (while having sex), or is it normal, and am I just panicking? Should I continue the stretching exercises?

Re: Masturbation with retracted foreskin

It sounds like you should keep stretching the opening wider now to keep it from being too tight for easy movement with an erection. Excessively tight foreskin certainly can get stuck (paraphimosis--your concern here), and it can take quite a bit of effort to get it to go back. Of course the worst risk with it so tight is that it could tear during sex.

Another thing, the foreskin of people who have had phimosis seems in many cases to be somewhat prone to tightening again. It could be that your foreskin might slowly retighten unless it's gently stretched from time to time for maintaining a sufficiently wide opening.
