It appears to have been practised by some Native Amercian tribes - there is a thread here: https://pulledback.org/index.php?topic=562.msg5171#msg5171

I have read the cultural significance of pulling back in certain cultures within the discussion boards, but haven't found a specific thread on it (maybe just couldn't find it).

Japan has popped up a lot in the discussions, but I was wondering if there were any other cultures out there that anyone is a part of that practices this?

Also, is anyone a part of a culture that a community that majority circumcises and decided to pull back instead?

The health and aesthetic benefits are very clear throughout the discussions, was just wanting to get a bit more insight into my questions above!

Like I described in my introduction (in case anybody missed it), I am Australian but I am very involved in the Indonesian community. Circumcision is almost the norm in Java, Sumatra and Kalimantan due to being Muslim-majority (from Bali to the East of Indonesia it is less common), however I know a lot of people are pressured into circumcision. Even I considered it when I started to get involved with the community, but then I found pulling back. So after finding all of the methods here I thought pulling back seemed like a great alternative for those who don't want to get circumcised (aside from being a good thing to practice regardless!)

Thanks  :D

Yeah I've already gone to a doctor and got a referral to a dermatologist - just haven't got around to going yet!

I've tried anti-fungals so I dont think its fungal. I think it might be some weird bacterial thing.

Thanks for your comment

I also have this problem. I went to a dermatologist, and he prescribed a corticosteroid-free cream, as I had already used other drugs without success in treatment. He also recommended that I let it pulled back to keep it as dry as possible. I recommend that you consult a dermatologist as soon as possible because the origin of your balanoposthitis may be due to several factors, in addition to fungi and bacteria, it may also be allergic, related to the hygiene products you use.
From other forums on the internet there are other tips that help: do not wash your penis with very hot water, use a hypoallergenic soap, do not wash excessively (once a day is enough), when urinating, pull back and dry the tip when you are finished.

I've thought about this a lot. I've imagined two scenarios, both are similar concepts to be attempted after the piercings are fully healed:
1) having a frenum/jacob's ladder. Then, with properly sized jewelry attaching two of the "rungs" of the ladder together, with one ring. So the first rung at the bottem of the ladder near the base gets attached to the top (or near the top) rung. bunching up all the skin in between.
2) getting two piercings at the base of the penis both offcenter, then two more farther up. It is basically the same concept as the 1st. but it would probably be better depending on your anatomy and if you can support it.

In either case, over time the surface piercings like that are likely to reject especially if you are putting them under constant strain, no matter how slight. Thats why #2 might be the better option to spread the pressure out over multiple points.

As far as actually getting it done...
I spoke to several piercers about it pre-covid. (but then everything shut down so it never happened) Of those I spoke with, 3 were circumcised guys (by their own admission) and basically all said "thats cool, this is a first, whatever you wanna do, but I honestly don't know wtf I'm doing with a foreskin" 1 was a woman who basically said the same thing.

Of the other 3:
One told me" "hey that sounds super crazy advanced you should see if you can find this guy, I dont remember his name but he is a super high-tier piercer guy runs conventions and stuff here's a pdf I got a piercing convention."

Another told me:  "I have a foreskin and that sound fuckin awesome, I would be fine trying it on myself, because I know me. I'm not comfortable trying something like that on someone else, cause it IS super advanced. You should talk to this guy Joel, lives in Australia, does super crazy stuff. He'd be into it"

Last but not least, is the guy who was super interested actually took the time to talk to me, for like an hour, in hindsight I should've done it then and there, and he said:
"that is awesome, it sounds like it might work depending upon your anatomy, I'm willing to try it, but you should talk to Joeltron, he is a very advanced piercer if anyone has ever done anything like this it's probably him."

And as luck had it, work was taking me to Australia in 2020! hooray! (except that didn't quite work out)

So that's my story. For the record all of these piercers were in Las Vegas.

If it isn't going away, you might want to test it for other possibilities (bacterial, viral, autoimmune etc.) rather than waiting. It might be due to an underlying issue that needs to be corrected, be it by antibiotics or other methods.

When the cause's fungal, though, keeping it retracted might solve the issue because fungi need a moist and warm environment to thrive (coconut oil also seems to be a popular fighting strategy). In such cases, one or two weeks are more than enough to notice some change.

Enjoyed reading your great news. Hope you'll post an updated picture with the foreskin naturally retracted. Does the foreskin stay behind the glans even while sitting or with shrinkage?

Just as one small data point, my foreskin has stayed retracted all day today since I finished my post morning workout shower, with plenty of mostly sitting at my desk, with a bit of walking around.

I would say my foreskin is fairly short and very loose.

I started retracting intermittently around puberty, so I suspect my foreskin didn’t grow quite as long as it might have if it had been left fully forward all the time.

After retracting for so many years, and for such long stretches of time, I think my frenar band has spent so much time around my shaft instead of in front of my glans that the tissues and sphincter muscles are completely stretched out.  The tip of my foreskin has very little tendency to pinch together, pulling the foreskin forward on the glans, as it does in many men who usually wear their foreskin forward.

And finally, I pulled and stretched on my frenulum so hard in my youth that I got some small tears that allowed it to heal in a bit longer configuration that puts less tension on my foreskin.  Unlike some guys on this forum, my frenulum alteration was entirely accidental, but I think it has contributed to my current success.

If I were to pull my skin forward, it would naturally cover about 1/3 to 1/2 of my glans, a bit more if I’m sitting down or very flaccid, and when I’m erect, it will naturally retract behind the glans.

I think there is just enough constriction at the frenar band to hold the foreskin behind the glans when retracted, and there isn’t so much shaft skin to push it forward over the corona most of the time, nor a short enough frenulum to pull it up over the corona.  So I think a confluence of some anatomic luck and some changes from my consistent retraction have helped me reach my current state.
