Penis Sensitivity and Foreskin Restoration

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, December 1, 2017, In : Men's Health 

There has been a debate raging over the past few decades about the common practice of circumcision for infant boys. Those who promote the practice believe it leads to better hygiene later in life. But those who are against it point out that the loss of foreskin can mean significant loss of sensation. Even the best penis care might not be enough to allow a circumcised man to feel the intense sensations that uncircumcised men do.

But besides the desire to improve penis sensitivity, many see ...

Red Penis and Foreskin: Some Helpful Hints

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, December 20, 2016, In : Men's Health 

A red penis is something that can occur regardless of whether a man has a foreskin or not. While men may endlessly debate the pros and cons of being intact or circumcised, and whether this has any effect on penis health, the fact is that an atypically red penis is something no man wants. For men with a foreskin who develop a very red penis, these helpful hints may be valuable.

To some degree, a red penis may occur more frequently in men with foreskin, for the simple fact...

Foreskin Fun: Masturbation Tips for Intact Men

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, October 17, 2015, In : Men's Health 

While researchers debate whether foreskin affords intact men greater sexual sensations, there is no doubt that having foreskin opens a man up to different techniques for masturbatory fun. Frequent masturbation is, for many men, a component of sexual and penis health, as it keeps the tissues strong, supports prolonged erectile function and gets a man in touch with his body and what he likes. Men with foreskin can try the following masturbation techniques for which their penises are uniquely e...

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, September 30, 2015, In : Men's Health 

Foreskin is a hot topic of debate in the U.S. Some argue that circumcision is necessary for penis health; others assert that the procedure is barbaric and completely unnecessary. This debate tends to weigh heavily on uncut men, leading to anxieties and insecurities concerning their manhoods.

But some of the stigma around foreskin can be vanquished by learning the facts about the sheath. The following may help uncut men improve their body image.

The Penis Foreskin: A Woman's Guide

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, September 19, 2015, In : Men's Health 

Although the majority of men worldwide are intact - that is, have a penis with a foreskin - in some parts of the world, such as the United States, most men are circumcised. In such areas, women rarely come into contact with a foreskin and so could benefit from a short guide to this body part. Although there is ongoing (and sometimes fierce) debate as to whether being circumcised or intact is "better" or has a positive impact on penis health, most intact men are quite satisfied with having a ...

Penis Care: Avoid these Foreskin Problems

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, August 1, 2015, In : Men's Health 

Foreskin gets a bad rap in American culture, but there are several positive things about it. It provides a layer of natural protection between the sensitive penile head and clothing; it produces natural lubrication for the penis; some partners greatly enjoy the process of "undressing" the head of the penis by retracting the foreskin over the head with lips or hands. While circumcision is not necessary for a healthy penis, there are some unique problems that can occur in uncut men, and guys s...

Uncircumcised Penis Myths - Get the Facts Straight

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, June 27, 2015, In : Men's Health 

A man with an uncircumcised penis in the U.S. gets a raw deal in many ways, at least when it comes to common conceptions about what he’s packing. There are many great things about having foreskin, but cultural myths have influenced opinions about penile hygiene and aesthetics that give the sheath a bad rap. But so long as a man practices routine penis care, his tool is likely not only healthy, but quite lovely to behold, foreskin and all. Getting to that realization requires dispelling the...

Uncircumcised Penis – Facts to Dispel Unnecessary Fears

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, March 3, 2015, In : Men's Health 

Men with foreskins in the United States may feel self-conscious, and partners may not be sure what to do with a sheathed member upon their first encounter with one. For most men, the decision as to whether or not to be circumcised is made by their parents when they are newborns, informed by certain ideas about penis care. Few men elect to go under the knife later on in life unless a rare medical condition occurs. It’s important for intact men to know the facts about the uncircumcised penis...

Understanding Smegma - What Is It, and How Does It Affect Penis Health?

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, January 5, 2015, In : Men's Health 

Any man who is uncircumcised is familiar with the cheesy, sticky, white or yellowish substance that tends to build up underneath the foreskin. This pasty, often smelly substance - known commonly as smegma -- is generally regarded as unpleasant and dirty. On the other hand, smegma does, in fact, play an important role in penis health, so it is worth learning more about it and understanding its purpose before dismissing it as a source of disgust and embarrassment.

What is smegma, exactly?

Red Penis? 4 Foreskin Tips to Make it Better

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, December 22, 2014, In : Men's Health 

The foreskin is a perfect penis protection device. That little wrapper of skin keeps sensitive skin from rubbing up on fabrics, and that could mean that uncut men feel just a little more when the clothes hit the floor and sex starts in earnest. But the foreskin can also cause problems from time to time, and when that happens, a red penis can pop up. Itching, pain and overall discomfort quickly follow. Fortunately, proper penis care can help. Here are four tips to hasten a man’s recovery.

Foreskin Problems? Here’s How to Help

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, November 20, 2014, In : Men's Health 

The foreskin is a vital part of the equipment for uncircumcised men; it protects the delicate tissue underneath, provides incredible sensations and helps to ease the way during masturbation and partner sex. But when foreskin problems develop, they can cause serious pain, not to mention embarrassment, and they can sideline a guy for days or even weeks if they are not treated properly. Fortunately, men can avoid many of these issues by following some simple penis care rules.

How to Treat and Prevent Phimosis – Tight Foreskin Problem

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, November 5, 2014, In : Men's Health 

For most men, the foreskin is a useful part of their penile anatomy. It protects the delicate tissue underneath, promotes sensitivity and even provides natural lubrication during masturbation and sex. However, it is not uncommon for men to experience ongoing problems with this fold of flesh and nerve tissue. When a tight foreskin interferes with the ability to achieve a full erection without pain, or when it can’t be pulled back easily over the head of the penis, a condition known as phimo...

Foreskin Problems and Treatments – Caring for an Uncircumcised Penis

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, September 22, 2014, In : Men's Health 

The foreskin, or prepuce, is more than just an extra flap of skin. It consists of highly specialized tissue that protects the glans (head) of the penis underneath; it also contains a great deal of sensory tissue that provides pleasurable sensation, and it acts as a natural lubricant for the penile skin. In the past, this skin was often removed from male infants through circumcision - often for religious reasons or tradition, but also because it was believed to be healthier for the child. Now...

Avoiding Foreskin Problems through Proper Care of the Uncircumcised Penis

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, August 25, 2014, In : Men's Health 

The foreskin is a double layer of tissue made up of smooth muscle, mucus membranes, skin, nerves and blood vessels. It covers the penis in uncircumcised men and provides a layer of protection for the glans. Because it contains a large number of nerve cells, the foreskin can be very sensitive and provide a great deal of pleasure. On the other hand, when foreskin problems occur, they can be quite painful, and in some cases, they can cause lasting damage to the penis. By practicing appropriate ...

Tight Foreskin Q&A – No-nonsense Answers to Reader Questions

Posted by John Dugan on Sunday, August 10, 2014, In : Men's Health 

In male infants, the foreskin - a double layer of tissue that covers the penis - does not retract at all. This is normal, and parents are advised not to attempt to pull it back; as the child grows, the adhesions that hold it in place wear away naturally, and by early adolescence, most boys are able to pull it back completely. However, some men have a tight foreskin that cannot be fully retracted even into adulthood. This condition can be quite uncomfortable, and in some individuals, it can i...

The Male Foreskin - A Woman s Guide

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, May 9, 2014, In : Men's Health 

Although male circumcision is common in the United States, the foreskin is not unknown in America. In much of the world, an intact penis is far more the norm than one which has been cut. However, because some American women, even those with a considerable degree of experience, have not come in close personal contact with a "hooded" penis, their first exposure to one may raise a number of questions for them. Some may wonder how the presence of the male prepuce impacts such matters as appropri...

Foreskin Restoration - Can it Improve Penis Sensation?

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, February 10, 2014, In : Men's Health 

In recent years, the customary practice of circumcising male infants has come into question, with critics arguing that it is an unnecessary surgery that results in loss of penis sensation. There may be some validity to this argument, because an exposed glans is more likely to develop thicker, less-responsive skin as a result of exposure to clothing and the environment. For men who want the experience of having an intact prepuce, foreskin restoration may be an option. Supporters believe that ...

The Uncircumcised Penis Debate - Are Woman For or Against?

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, February 6, 2014, In : Men's Health 

When it comes to the male anatomy, there are two distinctive ways that the actual penis itself can appear: with or without a foreskin. Sure, a man can try all sorts of tricks to see what makes him look bigger, longer or more attractive, but by the time a man reaches adulthood he is probably pretty used to the equipment that does - or perhaps doesn’t - come with his package. However, even with only two choices out there, the decision on whether or not to circumcise baby boys is one fretted ...

Foreskin Pain - Coping with Side Effects of Masturbation Games

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, October 24, 2013, In : Men's Health 

All men spend a considerable amount of time handling their tools, even if they occasionally go too far and experience a bit of penis pain. Intact men are no different, but they have the added bonus of mixing their "hoods" into the penile play. The more creative among them engage in all sorts of foreskin games, often with pleasurable results; but care needs to be taken to ensure that penis health is not compromised in prepuce play pursuit.

Reducing Balanitis Risk - Proper Cleansing for the Uncircumcised Penis

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, October 23, 2013, In : Men's Health 

They say that cleanliness is next to godliness, but if men spend too much time lathering up and too little time rinsing off, they could end up with a numb penis or a painful foreskin as a reward. That's because irritants in soap can cause balanitis, and when that condition takes hold, intense penis care may be required in order to soothe the pain.

Understanding Balanitis

The skin that covers the penis is designed to bend and stretch, so it can support the expansion that the penis goes th...

Foreskin Pain and Phimosis - Dealing with a Sticky Penis Problem

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, October 17, 2013, In : Men's Health 

For most uncircumcised men, the foreskin is a great addition to their equipment, but a small percentage experience foreskin pain caused by the condition known as phimosis. For those so afflicted, extra steps need to be taken to ensure maximum penis health and a more enjoyable sensual experience.

What is phimosis?

In most men, the foreskin is easily able to retract over the glans of the penis once they reach a certain degree of maturity; certainly by adulthood, and most often during puber...

Foreskin Pain and Swelling - Treating and Preventing Balanitis

Throbbing, aching and swelling in the foreskin can strike fear into the hearts of men, leaving them worried that a recent unprotected encounter has left them with an unwelcome souvenir. While this could be a real penis health concern, other conditions may cause similar symptoms. For instance, uncircumcised men may develop a condition known as Balanitis. While painful, this issue is easily treatable if men follow some simple rules for penis hygiene and care.

Phimosis Rescue - Causes and Solutions for a Tight Foreskin

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, July 25, 2013, In : Men's Health 

One common complaint that urologists hear on a regular basis comes from men who have difficulty retracting their foreskin. The foreskin, or sheath, that covers the glans penis has numerous important functions. It helps to protect the delicate penile tissue from diseases and injury, and it is believed to protect the natural sensitivity of the underlying erogenous tissue. For some men, the foreskin retracts easily by the time adulthood is reached, but for many others, this process may be diffi...

Living with a smelly penis can be embarrassing, and men who are unable to erase that fishy odor may find themselves alone, or at least kept at arm’s length. For some men, a foul-smelling penis can be a serious problem, undermining their self-confidence and preventing them from getting close to a potential partner. Even men who shower every day and spend time on grooming their parts can have problems with penile odor; for these men, the problem is especially frustrating, as it seems like th...

Understanding the Aging Penis - Lifetime Care for the Manhood

It’s no secret that the penis changes as a man gets older, but how to control these changes and maintain optimum penis health is often something of a mystery. Unfortunately, not all boys are taught about the ins and outs of the penis, and as a result, they don’t always understand how to care for it properly. By learning about how the penis develops over time, as well as the do’s and don’ts of appropriate penis and foreskin care, men can avoid some common, yet unpleasant problems and ...

Foreskin Care for Better Health – Recognizing and Dealing with Common Problems

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, May 7, 2013, In : Men's Health 

The foreskin is more than just an extra flap of skin at the end of the penis. This bit of tissue, also known as the prepuce, plays an important role in penis health. From birth, it protects the glans penis (or head) from the outside world, helping to prevent injury and preserving sensitivity.

While circumcision, or surgical ablation of the foreskin, is common practice in a number of cultures, most males retain their foreskin. In order to prevent problems from developing and keep the skin c...

Foreskin Pain Solutions – Understanding Frenulum Breve

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, In : Men's Health 

Asking most men about their frenulum is likely to net nothing more than a blank stare; although this tiny band of flesh may well be the most sensitive part of the male anatomy, guys may not even be especially aware of its existence, unless something goes wrong, resulting in foreskin pain and/or bleeding. In most cases, injury to this delicate tissue is the result of a condition called frenulum breve, which translates literally as "short bowstring."

Fortunately, this problem can be correcte...

Penis Warts and Bumps – How to Tell if It’s Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Most men are intimately familiar with the topography of their penis and are aware of every bump, follicle, scrape and blemish. Not surprisingly, the development of any new or unusual lumps, spots or penis warts can be alarming and lead men to assume the worst about penis warts and STIs.

While sexually transmitted infection is always a concern for sexually active men, there are a multitude of other things that can go wrong. One such issue, known by the ominous-sounding name of sebaceous hyp...

Phimosis: Is Full Circumcision The Only Answer?

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, December 20, 2012, In : Men’s Issues 
As researchers continue to debate the risks and benefits of circumcision, more and more parents are choosing to allow their baby boys to retain their natural state. These parents may hope that by teaching their children proper penis health care, these boys can grow up healthy and happy, with all of the bits of skin they were born with. Unfortunately, some men develop phimosis, an uncomfortable condition in which the foreskin doesn't retract as it should. Circumcision is commonly prescribed fo...

Managing Penis Health - All About The Foreskin

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, November 20, 2012, In : Men’s Issues 
While circumcision, or ablation (cutting away) of the foreskin has become something of the norm in Western culture, the rest of the world does not share in this practice and the majority of males worldwide have an intact foreskin. In the US, the benefits of circumcision are increasingly questioned and fewer parents are opting for this surgery at birth. In fact, there are few medical benefits in removing the foreskin and recent research has shown that this stretchy piece of skin actually plays...

Foreskin Problems - Is Circumcision Really Necessary?

Recent scientific studies have made it clear that circumcision of male infants provides little in the way of health benefits. However, many parents in Western countries continue to make this choice for their sons and circumcision is performed almost by rote when a male child is born. Although religious traditions are often behind this choice there are also popular misconceptions prevalent which wrongly suggest that an intact foreskin equals poor hygiene, infections, and other penis problems. ...

Penis Mechanics – The Anatomy and Function of the Foreskin

While circumcision remains the norm for most male children born in the United States, medical research has revealed few health-related benefits to this practice, and for many men, circumcision may actually have negative side effects. For men who do have an intact foreskin, it can seem like an extra chore to keep it clean, and they may wonder about what good it is to have this extra flap of flesh attached to the end of the penis.

However, the foreskin is more than just extra skin; it serves a...

Uncircumcised Men Face Penis Health Risk Factors

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, August 23, 2012, In : Men’s Issues 
Until the late 20th century, circumcision of male infants at birth was considered routine and necessary. However, medical research over the last few decades supported the idea that circumcision constituted an unnecessary surgical procedure. Some critics even argue that circumcision amounts to mutilation and takes away the individual’s right to choose.

On the other hand, more recent studies have found that circumcision does, in fact, provide multiple health benefits over the lifetime of a ma...
