When I was younger, would have preferred being circumcised as most guys around me were cut.
 Now (23 y/o) - nah, enjoying both worlds!

It's not that I would have preferred to be cut, but I would definitely have not been opposed to it.

That bare head and smooth shaft just seems so hot to me. Dont know, maybe one day I'll be converted and get it done...

Growing up most other guys around me were circumcised. And I noticed they were very comfortable around each other generally. Inevitably you see other guys whether getting changed in the locker room or at water parks or camping trips etc. growing up I always felt out of place so I made sure to try to pull it back when I was getting changed. Was just a thing of wanting to fit in at the time. Been keeping mine back for multiple years now and definitely more confident. This point definitely would not want to get circumcised but definitely will keep it back.

In the community I grew up in, virtually all other boys besides me was circumcised.  I was deeply insecure about this difference, and from a very young age, I tried very hard and without success to keep my foreskin permanently rolled back to make my penis look “normal”, and because I assumed that was what all the other boys were doing.

As I grew older I believe this experience led to my powerful adult sexual interest/fetish in circumcision and circumcised penises (which isn’t great for someone who is otherwise straight).  Perhaps I could have developed more “normal” sexual interests had I grown up circumcised like the other boys?


I also grew up in a community where everyone else I ever got changed around was circumcised and getting changed around other people was a major source of insecurity. Pretty much all of the guys I knew were very comfortable just getting changed in front of each other. So to fit in I had to start pulling it back.

I certainly had wished to have been circumcised until earlier this year. Being just pulled back meant that I always had to pay attention to the position of my foreskin unless I used means like to tape to secure it into place.

There are some strong opinions around this but I'm glad I was left intact. I believe doing it to children is unfair since they lose ability to make their own choice. I think having everything develop on its own is better, such as letting the foreskin separate from the glans during puberty.

Also, I see autocircumcision as a bit of challenge. Rather than just get surgery, we have to go through the effort to make the change. Also, it stays our decision and we can go back and forth (covered and uncovered) as we see fit. The look of having the foreskin behind the head in my opinion is the best look too.

I believe it is the best of both worlds. I can speak from having been uncircumcised and then circumcised later, no medical indication for it. I would have like to have kept my foreskin. I lost much more than I gained.

You're an ancient member of the forum but I can't seem to find an intro post from you — I'd be curious about your story in one place if you could ^^

Hi Kylar,  Yeah I guess I am an ancient member.😀 I think you may have reached out to me at some point and I dropped out for a few years and didn't get to return your contact.

I come on here in hopes of offering my past experience and insight, hoping to give encouragement in their endeavor. It's also great to hear others success stories in their retraction efforts. Cheers!

When I was younger yes but now in 2 minds but if I could even just lose a bit bit of skin from the base to see what it's like
