Change in glans shape since retracting
« on: 2018-07-10 10:48:32 »
Afternoon,

Just a general question. Has anyone noticed a change in shape to their glans since retracting?

I’ve noticed that my head is slightly more “bell” shaped when erect since I’ve been pulling back & I have more of a ridge when flaccid. Any explanations on why would be appreciated :)

I've also noticed my glans is more bell shaped than before altough I have no idea why is it like that. Maybe beacuse of the foreskin not restricting glans it can reach it's full "potential"?

I do believe that John Doe hit the nail on the head when he says that there now is less restriction. I went pulled back for 20 years and had the referred to flaring. I went covered for 27 years and and any time that I was briefly uncovered, it would still flare out. Although while covered it would reduce in size during that period, not showing that it could still flare. In other words, once developed, permanently flared.

I'm sure you're right. After tying my frenulum the difference between before and after became very obvious. My frenulum wasn't too short but the tip would be pulled down by it. Afterwards the tip of my head wasn't pulled down anymore, making the head appear longer in comparison when looked at from above.

Yes, glans increases when foreskin has been back.

Without any doubt my glans is more bell shaped, very noticeable especially if I pull my foreskin over my my head

Certainly men circumcised as boys generally have a large glans, as there is nothing to restrict its growth at puberty. Even when flaccid, the glans tends to stay the same size as when it's erect.
Pulled back for about 20 years, now circumcised. Real men have bare helmets!!!

Yes, the glans seems to be much larger in circumcised men then who are intact. As many say here their glans increases when the foreskin has been kept back. I'm thinking the elastic nature of the skin has a compressing effect which reduces the glans.

Sorry, but I call bullshit. I've played with ~a dozen cut guys and their heads were all average to small, especially compared to mine. None of them stayed big when soft. I think it's 90% genetics.
