What importance does foreskin play in your life, when it comes to sensitivity and manhood?
Have you ever tried to grow it back?
This is the topic for my next hub, so I'm trying to take a poll on whether or not you want it back. They say men with foreskin, have better sensitivity. Thus meaning they have a better sex life.
Ladies what do you think about foreskin over the glans penis?
Better Sensitivity would work to the womans disadvantage...unhappy women = worse sex life in my experience
No way. A more responsive partner is always a good thing.
I restored my foreskin. You can grow an inch a year, which is slow, but it's painless. Restoring gives radically different feelings. The benefits are for both partners:
- the shaft can now be frictionlessly kneaded by the slinking of the skin, to prod some sense sites deep within the shaft near the glans and elsewhere. I never knew this was possible before I restored. I suppose with enough lube I might have discovered the same thing earlier.
- the mucosal skin just below the glans down to the scar has a sort of ticklish "itch" that just sparkles during intercourse or oral. The area was dry and basically numb before.
- the corona and frenular area are just a lot more sensitive/ticklish now that they are covered all the time. Some have said it's due to "dekeratinization" and others have said there's no such thing. All I know is I feel a lot more now. It's like the nerve endings are closer to the surface, and the surface is more supple and delicate so it tracks better with whatever it's touching. It's like going from wearing 3 thick condoms to a single ultra-shear one. Anybody can experience the same change by wearing a band-aid continuously for several days on any part of their body. When you take it off, the part that had been covered is very sensitive and ticklish.
- the skin at the pucker of the prepuce is very ticklish to tongue flicking when it is bunched up. Since I didn't have enough to bunch up before, I never felt this sensation.
- the inner foreskin is delightfully aware of a tongue plunged in between the glans and foreskin and swirled around (with skin drawn forward over the glans). Since I didn't have enough slack before for this to happen, I never felt this sensation.
- the shaft skin that has spent its whole day puckered in front of the glans gives off a wild sensation upon the onset of an erection. It's like the skin crackles inside as it is forced to stretch wide enough to clear the glans and retract past it, while it also has to overcome the grip of the tacky clinging to the glans. It's like both glans and skin are kissing each other. This is brief and I really only notice it for the first couple minutes of an erotic encounter, but that's OK. If it kept up I'd probably come too fast. I imagine this might be akin to what it feels like to have a vagina stretched out. I can only guess about that of course.
- the shaft skin that rolls up and down the shaft gives off a new feeling as it rolls over on itself from inner to outer and back. Since I never had enough slack before to feel the skin tightly rolling like this during arousal I never felt this sensation before.
- with the slack skin that easily covers my glans during arousal, my wife can rub my glans through the skin before intercourse while I'm licking her and there is ZERO risk of her rubbing me to the point of numbness, no matter how long we keep at that activity. Before the dry friction would really have a negative impact on the intercourse that followed.
- after my wife climaxes once during intercourse her vaginal chemistry seems to change to where there is suddenly much more friction. Not a LOT more; just like the difference between lube that's water and lube that's oil. At that time, I often feel my penis move inside my sheath of skin only, with ZERO friction between me and her vaginal walls. She LOVES this, because she says at that moment she would be too sensitive for any friction. Because I never had slack before, she was never able to enjoy this plush filled-up frictionless massage feeling between orgasms before. Of course when we're finally done, this same action causes her vagina to pull my skin so I'm covered as I withdraw, which is a trip.
- - - - -
Sex wasn't torture before. At age 38 my wife and I would bone for like 45 minutes or an hour. She would climax about 5 times and if I wanted to finish I needed to REALLY concentrate and she needed to break out the dirty talk and the stars needed to align. But she would be rubbed raw and then want to take several days off.
She never did succeed in finishing me orally before I restored.
Now whenever she's had enough of intercourse I just let go and finish effortlessly as she climaxes again with me. But the whole ride is so fulfilling, I'm in no rush to get to a big finish. We really connect, and bone more often than ever.
Sex is very much better since restoration, for physical reasons. We're both having the best sex of our lives.
I hate to be a Party Poop, but I have to tell you the Male foreskin, is probably something that I have never really thought about. With me it is about as interesting a topic (Up there with a Pigs scrotom)......... Amazing post. Most Bizzarre, am I the only person, that doesn't give a S...T or are the rest of my sex so lame, they actually think about a nasty little bit of skin.
Ask the Jewish ladies, they possibly have more knowledge.....on the subject. !!!!!!!!!!!!!! ") ")
Actually, the foreskin of a baby, once extracted can be scientifically grown to create enough skin to cover a tennis court! The cells are new and can be used for grafting.
There is my input.
hey if thats so its agreat idea. there are many burn patients who need grafts.
I think that what ever the man is comfortable with. I have had both and to me its the same feeling on my part. I know some people do or not for religious or other reasons. When my son was born he was automatically circumcised, they didnt ask ne. But personally I think that has to hurt and I would not have put my child through that.
What exactly do you mean by 'grow it back'? Like a lizards tail or something?
I don't think miracle grow will reverse a circumcision.
LOL I bet people who have lost a lot more, like legs and arms would like to "grow it back". The fact is, it's gone. And, furthermore since most men had it cut when too young to remember and certainly before puberty; How would I know if I miss it?
That wins the hamster a new wheel. " Grow it back", love it, I'm rolling.
Listen to Grow it back Again, by yours truly: http://tlctugger.com/Audio/Contest/GrowItBackAgain.mp3
You can't grow it back?? damn miracle grow...
lol i hate to sound like a broken record . but grow it back . thats funny. as far as the topic circumcision is archaic in my mind . the hygiene argument is too. What about female circumcision . Everyone will agree that its crazy. but its ok to cut on a males genitalia? i still have my tonsils . i still have my appendix. if your born with it its suppose to be there i think . its fact that by removing the foreskin you loose up to 50 % or more of the sensation in the penis . sex feels good . but with my foreskin it could feel great. lol
I'm not entirely happy with the fact that my foreskin was clipped by my parents' volition and not my own. Its a mystery that they even did it in the first place, since they had no religious grounds and I, as far as I know, possessed no physical abnormalities that might warrant doing so. Maybe people are just ignorant about what it means to have foreskin, or think nothing of it because they believe that it will eventually grow back.
Female circumcision is not quite comparable to male circumcision at all, though. Male circumcision is relatively harmless and may, on occasion, actually benefit the patient (it may for example, alleviate phimosis, a condition in which the foreskin is so narrow it is difficult or painful to pull back). But with females, it is physically detrimental and continues simply because it is a dated cultural/religious tradition. You are correct in calling it "archaic." Men may lose sensitivity, but at least the penis is easier to clean and maintain. Not to mention, from a purely aesthetic point of view, circumcised penises are much more attractive than their counterparts (I'm sure many women would agree as well).
sorry, disagree there! been with both and have to say and uncircumcised penis is much better looking. sorry to burst your bubble.
You really think so? I guess all penises were not made equal, and covered or uncovered is just one of many factors involved in distinguishing a good from a bad looking member.
Alas, I stand corrected, at least until I can find another girl to back me up. :-)
This just have to be Jewish, Muslim, or American girl. All other girls usually prefer natural
I had mine done and I can tell you it's far more comfortable, and looks better - well, I had a phimosis, perhaps that's why.
It doesn't grow back, but there are medical ways to regain foreskin.
Reading this post, I decided to look it up online. But in reading about it I found it takes time and does not sound very comfortable. lol Skin stretches naturally and that is one of the techniques used I found and the other sounded very painful.
good job mike . you did some reserch before laughing at the question like i did . i feel kinda dumb now . good to see people like you thinking before they post . ill take a lesson from that .
As a parent, I decided there was no need for cosmetic surgery on my baby boys.
this post is purely jest . ok. what if when i die and im at heavens gate . and god looks at me and says . wheres your foreskin? looks back and says to the front desk . we got another reject here. and the desk clerk says another one without his foreskin . yep god says. looks at me and say . ahhh sorry no vacancy . lol
my doc said I could grow it back. just rub lots of lotion on it.
53 years later, and still nothing.
harmless let me cut your foreskin off . then you can define harmless to me. lol just razzing ok we cool?
RELATIVELY so, but yeah, I probably would have opted to keep mine (had the choice been my own). Eh, At least it was cut off when I was an infant, so I couldn't remember any pain. With girls, its common to undergo genital mutilation between the ages of 4-8, and sometimes well into adolescence. That can't possibly be fun.
Perhaps you would best interview a Rabbi or two
I foresee this as also leading to heated debate within a religious thread
I find it interesting that so many know so much about other men's dicks
But get real on your factual content instead of generalising.
How would an uncircumsised guy know the degree of sensitivity of a circumsised member and visa versa?
As I explained to my son when he was young: When it comes down to penises; some have fireman's helmets and some have police helmets... The most important thing is: That they have a helmet; given the environments that they will have to work in!
He asked me: "What about Construction guys?" Ummmm
I'm confused with the helmet analogy. Wouldn't one version be a non-helmet wearing profession? haha
As an adult, one can opt to have their foreskin surgically removed. These men allegedly claim there is a difference in sensitivity. But you're right - I, for one, don't know from personal experience.
Some men need to have it done as teenagers or adults, for medical reasons.
I don't think anybody is concerned with such cases on this thread.
If you have to, you have to, no question about that. I don't know how it is over there on your side of the pond Amanda, but the majority of American baby boys get their tiny flesh cut at the age of a few days, exactly as it is instructed in the OT. They claim they do this for sanitary reasons. Considering their unconditional support of Israel, I doubt it.
Yes this is true but its a good thing most boys get it done, it's more attractive and easier to keep clean. I'm a CNA and it gets infected easily if you have foreskin.
It's certainly not the norm, here. It's only if the parents insist, and arrange it.
We did for our son, but it was a religious brit ceremony.
I don't think foreskin plays a role in the sensitivity of the penis. Leave your penis as it is.
If you want sensitivity there are various tools to use for your satisfaction.
I wonder if they are the same guys that sewed a foreskin on the end of my brother's nose... claiming the same sensitivity issue?
i could care less how atractive my junk is . im not in the porno biz
Awhile ago I had to scatch my head to work out what a tourist couple were saying with their matching teeshirts (I saw him first)
On his teeshirt he had printed: "Say Cheese!"
On hers she had printed: "I Love Smegma!"
Well there is only one way to find out.
Guys, let's line up for inspection.
That would turn into "whos bigger" game too.
Lol I'm not standing next to you guys at the urinal with your creepy wandering eyes.
And another thing - when you get it done, it actually appears bigger ...
I just picture myself squinting and straining trying to grow my foreskin back... funny mental picture, lol.
I'm happy I got clipped.... I hear foreskin is annoying
OMG...... The Enduring and Endearing story of Freddy Foreskin has been Re-Erected once more, after a flacid period of 21 hours in which No One wanted to touch on the subject!
Rise and Shine Campers
Hello Stranger.... I can't even consider diving at the moment. After the last pearl.. I'm getting treatment for a curly hair-lip!
I'm not sure it's the case anymore, bet at least during WW II you had to be circumcised in order to join the military.
When I was young I was told that WW11 started over an argument over those with and those without. Perhaps it was to tell the troops apart?
So if an uncircumcised guy got called up, in other words was forced to join the war, did they force him to get circumcised beforehand, even though he was an adult now??? That seems a tad unfair to me!!
quite frankly if i didnt have a foreskin i would have no-one to talk to or take clubbing on a weekend
hmmm, this has bugged me for many years. No one asked for my permission when they did that. I know it hurt and I want it back. Whom do I sue?
I hope the practice of removing the foreskin will cease. It plays an important part in the man's arousal phase during sexual activity. Those who do not have one of course will never know what they are missing. I personally find it to be very attractive. I don't like the dried up exposed heads of the circumsized ones.
Great topic! See my hub on the subject if you like. There is a foreskin reclamation movement; men wanting to stretch it back, as it were, to make up for the fact that they never had a choice in the matter. As for comments regarding aesthetics of the circumcised penis; many enough appreciate the "natural" look.
You've got to be kidding. If I still had mine, I'd get rid of it by any means possible--scalpel, dull scissors, sledge hammer, flame thrower, whatever it took.
And I thought obsessive video game players needed to get a life!
As for not having had a choice, I don't recall being asked about losing that there umbilicial cord...but I don't want to reclaim that, either. What's next, a property rights dispute over the placenta?
I can't believe this is a topic on the forums...okay got that out of my system, time for me to go before I read anything...and I'm putting on the shades
I remember when I was a medic we would have men have it removed because of infection issues. Their friends always brought porn to their rooms, now thats mean!
"- the skin at the pucker of the prepuce is very ticklish to tongue flicking when it is bunched up. Since I didn't have enough to bunch up before, I never felt this sensation."
This is all very illuminating! very funny kind of eroticism going on here. Do you realize? This is the first forum I've found where EVERYBODY IS ACTUALLY STAYING ON THE THREAD! except for that part about blonde's lips or whatever.
Anyway - I KNOW I read somewhere that the purpose of the foreskin is actually to keep the sperm the right temperature -for procreation, ya know? Sorry to bring it up. go back to the funny stuff, ok?
o hahaha - at first I thought the hub was about "GAYS and their foreskin!" heheheh
after the "Bris" or whatever you call the Jewish circumcision ceremony, what to the do with the little foreskin thing? No, I'm serious, anybody know?
yeh - was thinking maybe they plant it under a tree or put it in a little box and hang it round the babe's neck to ward off the evil one - but - that's all speculations!
I was thinking maybe they could be saved sewn together and could be used as blankets for the needy. I sorta imagine heaps of homelesss peeps wrapped in foreskin blankets all warm and snug, sitting in front of braziers. Oh is foreskin flammable if so not the most brilliant idea (The Brazier)
Of course there is always the old joke about making them into purses, and when you stroke them they turn into a suitcase
hAHAHAHHAH maybe the needy could stroke my blankets, they'd get a whole Village shelter for the night. What a lovely idea.
And later on it will shrink down to a handy size for transportation
I am seeing huge (sorry for pun) marketing potential, I am thinking Wedding Marquees that can be small and made larger, dependent on the number of guest, Or Circus Big Tops, this is Big.......
Dog muzzles that fit any breed depending on how much you stroke them
that was a very charitable idea but I suppose there would be a rawther bacony kind of smell if they sit too close to that brazier! and then what if they were feeling hungry! and . . .no! So glad I'm a woman
They batter them,freeze them and sell them in supermarkets as Calamares or occasionally onion rings (depends on the circumference).
come to think of it, alot of homeless actually have hungry dogs! do ya think? and what a lovely time of year to suggest this - the holidays and all - those soup kitchens could use some help!
What about using them as extra strong elastic bands? Mind you, I still like the battering them and using them as onion rings or Calamares idea, just because of the vision it creates
Rub one until it is the right size for your car and use it as a spare fanbelt.
Would this suit all makes and models of cars...
Battering them, Worry I didn't think about the Dog eating them, maybe needs work on a Dog eat inhibitor.
Tough to cook I would imagine, marinade would be needed and buckets of it.
Can you see Gordon Ramsay cooking mens foreskins, hell he's cooked almost everything else.
You think he's bad, what about Hugh Fernley Whittingstall????
I have made the metamorphosis to Mandybeau2 now, because believe it or not I have been told I am not allowed to post in the Forums. So Hi guys this is such a fun forum.
We now have mandybeau mandybeau1 and lately mandybeau2.
some of the things that coulod be done, well = really there's the whole superglue theory - and yet, I think we might be arrested soon or kicked out just for verbalizing all this - so I'm gonna try to reign it in, or is it rein it in? this horse has just bolted right outta the stable, kids and somebody has got to get a grip on it!
about that stroking - back there at the homeless shelter? Who is going to do it? could get exhausting. There is a huge downside to this enterprise.
but I have an idea I want to run past you - it's for my new novel: (spin off from the hub) (will only take a few minutes, won't hurt at all, really)
The Foreskin Saga - wherein a young Jewish babe is given his little pouch to carry with him throughout his life, only when he is barely old enough to be BarMitzvah'd a villainous Santa Claus at the mall steals it from his little pocket - yes, he was sitting on Santa's lap, unbeknownst to his zehda and cannot tell a soul that he sinned in such a goyisha way. So he has to spend the rest of his life covering up for the loss of his little foreskin - and finally he finds Jesus and prays and lo his foreskin returneth unto him and all is well for awhile as he is born again, but alas it gets even worse when he tries to enlist to go to Afghanistan and fight among the poppy fields, but he cannot because his foreskin was returned by the almighty and now he no longer knows where to turn - will his old Rabbi Hindiskelt forgive and forget and accept him back for a re-run bris? Or shall he let the military take it off for him? (I'm a little stuck here and would appreciate your help)
I like the whole shtick, what do you think?
LOL, sounds like "War and Peace" in terms of complications and potentially long storyline. Not sure how much help I will be able to offer, but it does hold loads of potential as a story I reckon (also sounds like he is in a revolving door in terms of his religious leanings )!!!
You could probably help with the costuming, if you don't mind! I really think I'll get a bid on the movie rights before it even gets into paperback! The religious parts are what will really give it marketing potential = making Santa into a villain, well I have to work on that part. Maybe its an oversexed teacher in 6th grade who seduced him and took it?
Hmm, possibly, but if you look up my hub on "The World's Worst Santas" you might decide to stick with that idea (trust me, it does exist and is a real eye opener)
I hope we never lose the thread here, that could really cause some problems. I mean - if someone, like me, comes over from wherever I was and we were talking about foreskins and noodles and then chefs - could they conceivably worry that this was a recipe forum? and then we'd get reported for ilicit ingredients? but I get too paranoid. So right - I'll keep the Santa part and just cut a little, here and there, and everything will come out just perfect! Who to cast as the adult boy and what to name him? Moishe? Heime? John? Mark? Luke? Peter? Ah! there it is - PETER! now, who to play him?
Decisions decisions, perhaps we could ask for volunteers!!
Actually, much more fun would be to do auditions.... extensive ones
Yes, that's the ticket ! A complete unknown! Someone who is truly well-endowed. I suppose the producer will want something to say about this.
I was just over in "Hubber's Story" where people are lining up to audition. I think. that is - there were 2 people over there. Course they might have been women, because one never knows here on hubpages just who is what and what is who. Oh well, maybe I got in a little trouble there. We shall see. Possibly I will never remember any of this in the morning. If I don't will there be someway I can come back to it? Do they archive these forums? If so how will they classify this? Fiction? Sports?
Another idea - have a woman, maybe Meryl Streep, play Peter, only in drag, see, what a stroke of genius that would be! And just edit in the close-ups - down there, you know. She can do anything. Fresh from being Julia - right out of the kitchen. There'd be so much curiosity - can we PULL IT OFF?!
oh. well, I didn't mean that LITERALLY we would PULL it OFF! but then, there must be a CLIMAX in the story - will it be when he/she has this epiphany and finds the Christians? Maybe call it "The Foreskin Saga: Pedro y Petra?" kind of Victor/Victoria (Russian/Mexican market is huge for this sort of thing) Would that be ok? I mean, would the Christians mind? Maybe there would be a little slip when they recircumsize Peter to send him to Afghanistan and he loses it, entirely. So he/she (enter Meryl Streep) gets sent to Argentina instead.
I will have to do a lot of research on this script before we can select the actor (possibly research on location) - but do we need to tell those poor schmucks who are lining up to audition for the part?! omg - they're going to break down the doors soon if we don't decide what to do - could just send them all home I guess. I think I'll have to sleep on it. This whole story line has a lot of gaps in it. Will have to find some more material to fill it in. and it is my bedtime - so forgive me while I grab a little shuteye. I know it will all seem clearer in the morning. May be y'all will have solved the biggest problems! Thanks awfully for your input.
yes, I'll just take one of my manic pills now and try to sleep it off.
My ex kicked me in the crotch so hard one time my forskin became my aftskin and I tea baged myself!Now I'm afraid to look down there cause"little willy"might not be beautiful anymore...
Yikes, sounds nasty, yet also sounds so funny coming from an Avatar like yours cheaptrick
Sleeping on it was the best idea - now that my head is clear I can see that the whole Foreskin Saga idea was a flash in the pan. Too overt and explicit for the mainstream movies - could become a cult film, I don't know. I'll have to try to serious-up a bit and write a real hub and come back another time. UNLESS - someone else wants to review this thread and take over for awhile? I'll check in on the foreskins a little later just to make sure no one gets too kinky. oh say, it may be a little late to worry about that! this is still making me laugh - but that just says a lot about me, huh.
Ahhhh...... the ol' pig-in-a-blanket topic! I've been waiting for this one as it was going to be a part of one of my hubs. Let me say that I personally can't stand turtlenecks especially on a penis. I have experienced this and although sex doesn't feel different to me, there are other problems it can present such as yeast infections amongst other things....and oral....Lets not go there. The man with a turtleneck has to make sure to keep that thing cleaner than a circumcised one for they are breeding grounds for bacteria and infections.
well, lets just hope that an adult uncircumcised male has the knowledge of how to properly clean his package...I mean seriously, is this really the argument? This is usually a problem for a population that does not have regular access to showers, baths etc. that is why during the war it was important to be circumcised because it was so difficult to keep clean. But lets face it, if someone is having a problem keeping himself clean today, in our part of the world, I'm going to have to say that it is a hygiene problem on his part and not due to his foreskin.
I am fortunate in that I have 2 penises.. one cut and one not.
I don't find any difference during intercourse, but the cut one does get colder in the winter.
