Hi. I'll just start off by saying how interesting it was to find out that a community like this existed. It's very fascinating to me.

I know this site is for intact people that want to keep their foreskins back but I'd like to share my experience as a circumcised man which some may find interesting. Growing up I was actually completely unaware that circumcision even existed until I was around 20 years old. Pornography made me curious about the variations in penises I was seeing. So searching online I discovered circumcision and what it was. I saw a picture comparing a circumcised and intact penis. I was confused because my penis didn't match either of them. I seemed to be closer to the intact penis than the circumcised one. So I asked my mother and she told me that I had been cut. I didn't really think much of it at the time.

Recently I became a bit more interested in circumcision after hearing more about it and so for the first time ever I took the time to examine myself. For reasons unknown it seems that only the tip of my foreskin was removed and even then not all of it. When flaccid I'm about 85-90% covered. The opening at the end is about the size of a dime. The skin is pretty loose and goes back quickly when I get an erection though it will make its way back over the glans when I'm soft pretty quickly and stay there until I pull it back manually or get another erection. Part of my frenulum seems to be missing but not all of it. Also I still have a very small part of my ridged band left. When fully erect my skin goes back and I clearly look circumcised but the skin is very loose and can be pulled up to cover the majority of my glans so I'm able to masturbate in the same way as an intact person would.

Also because my glans isn't completely covered all the time I'm aware it has lost some sensitivity but honestly it's still really sensitive and I don't rub even the part that is always exposed without some kind of lube since my dry fingers feel too rough. Also I can achieve orgasm from glans stimulation quickly though I only have experience with masturbating as I am a virgin.

A question I have for anyone that has stayed retracted for a long time or has a naturally short foreskin is do you have a different color on the part of your glans that is always exposed? For me the exposed part is a light pinkish color and the part under my foreskin is more of a darker purplish color. The difference is apparent even when I'm erect and that exposed part isn't as shiny as the rest of the glans. I guess it gives me a unique look.

Sorry my post isn't about staying pulled back. But I just wanted to post my story and let you all know that this community has actually made me feel better about my circumcision status and knowing that having some or all of your glans exposed isn't the horrific scenario that many claim it is. I hope this post isn't in violation of any rules as that was certainly not my intent.

Thank you for reading this.

Hey and welcome! :D

Loose circumcisions like that are not very common. You actually sound like you have about as much skin as I did naturally. My dick hole was always visible and the skin would roll back if I even got semi. The part that was exposed was a little different in color and texture.

Now that I've been retracted for >3 years, the whole head is definitely a different color than it used to be. So yes, it's normal!

My foreskin is the same way. Even a semi will cause it to roll back. Unless I'm sitting in a certain position then the skin will remain over the glans until I'm almost fully erect.

Being retracted for more than 3 years seems pretty impressive. How has your experience been? Do you enjoy it?

Also I'd like to add that I found this site after seeing information posted online by intactivists. At first I got pretty upset after I was made to feel like I wasn't a complete human being and that my parents were apparently evil. I started worrying about the exposed part of my glans and how my glans wasn't perfectly smooth like the images that were being posted.

But then I found out that quite a few men had short foreskins naturally and that some cultures even kept the foreskin pulled back. Then I found this forum. It made me think that if having the glans exposed was some extremely harmful and crippling thing nobody would ever purposefully do it and naturally short foreskins that didn't cover the whole glans would be an extreme rarity which they are not from what I have read online. So I started feeling better about myself.

Sorry for the tangent but I just wanted to express my gratitude that a place like this exists. I'm sure it's helped ease the minds of others too.  :)

I love it! I love the look and feel of my glans now. I love being able to smack it on my boyfriend's face and it doesn't hurt -- er, what?  ;D

I think it is absolutely a shame that the movement dedicated to something so good - eliminating infant circ without consent - has adopted such a confrontational and shaming view of those who have been victims of the practice. It really makes them seem like strident fetishists instead of concerned.

Well you certainly do seem to be enjoying it.  ;D

My glans can handle being exposed with no problems. I think this is partly because I masturbate so frequently and really love edging for hours.  :P

Though I can still tell when my foreskin rolls back when I get semi and I can feel my glans and exposed inner foreskin touching my boxers. It doesn't hurt but feels more like a very light tickle.

I agree. I'm against infant circumcision too. I think it should be the boy's choice since it's his body.

However I don't think that all the parents are choosing to do this so they can hurt their sons and cause them lots of problems. Also I think that the negatives are grossly exaggerated in an attempt to appeal to emotion. When you tell a man that his penis is broken and that he'll never know true pleasure and never be able to please his partner all that does is harm his mental state. I fail to see how doing that is a positive.

I think a lot of men that feel terrible that they are circumcised didn't have any problems with it until they were told that they should. Obviously some might have truly had issues with being circumcised but most probably didn't even think about the fact that they were circumcised unless the subject was brought up. I know I sure didn't because there was never any reason for me to do so.

Yeah, I totally agree. Telling people they're irreversibly broken and mutilated is... not the best way to go about changing minds and hearts.

Thanks for your reply.

Also I have a question for anyone that is able to answer. So I know about desensitization and how it can affect the glans. My question is aside from whatever loss might come with aging, will my sensitivity remain mostly the same as long as I don't change my habits stay covered most of the time? To give some more information what I've done is that starting in my teens I began masturbating and edging for an hour or 2 everyday on average. So aside from any erections my entire glans was exposed for that time. I have kept that up regularly for years though in recent years I have cut back to masturbating every few days instead of every single. Also my glans doesn't get really moist enough to be wet like most intact guys. It stays moist enough to feel sticky but doesn't take long to dry after being exposed. On hot days it can feel almost wet to the touch but not quite after I pull back. I'm assuming that moisture helps right?

The constantly exposed part of my penis does have that really wrinkly look when flaccid and to some extent when erect and is a different color than the rest of the glans. However it still has feeling and if I rub one my fingers over it dry when flaccid it feels a bit uncomfortable due to the dry friction. Also I'm 30 years old so it has had decades of exposure at this point. I just got scared by all the talk of people saying that there glans became completely numb and they couldn't even feel any pain if they pinched it. And some of the stories like this I read were from people quite a bit younger than me. But I don't have that problem.

Masturbation has always very pleasurable for me and there are a few ways I can make myself orgasm in a couple of minutes or less though I prefer going for hours because it feels so good. And honestly I can't really tell any difference in how good masturbating feels now and when I was say 16. If there has been any loss in pleasure I certainly can't tell it. If anything it seem to feel even better since I wait a few days in between now.

I let myself get scared by all of the stuff people post online about how they are ruined by circumcision and that it takes them forever to even reach an orgasm that is mediocre and that by the time you're in your 40s you'll start having problems with ED because of the sensitivity loss in your glans.

So basically can anyone that is older that has been pulled back for many years comment on how masturbation is for you? Is it still really enjoyable?

I'd really appreciate any answers. And I love how welcoming this forum is. :)

I'm not sure I can answer with any specific detail either way, however, I can from my own experience say that now that I'm back for 2-3 years, the 'feel' from touching the glans vs the feel from touching on the shaft (including the pulled back foreskin) seems to be the same right now. When fully erect, though, the sensitivity is high (perhaps as it should be???)
To me this is a great result - especially compared with the early days for trying to remain pulled back in boxers, and quite often getting hard simply from the friction, and particularly from pulling back if it did edge over (my method was pull back as far as possible and let it return slowly to rest against the ridge).

Thanks for the reply. It's the same for me. Sensitivity is high when fully erect. When I'm 100% flaccid the exposed part doesn't feel too different from touching the shaft. There is a bit of difference in how friction feels against it. When I start getting erect my sensitivity goes up a lot. When full erect I'm really sensitive. My corona is especially sensitive and any dry friction against it causes a bit of pain. This might sound strange but for all of my life I've masturbated the same way which is just rubbing my foreskin up and down the glans. It felt really good so I stuck with and never really experimented with anything else. But recently I did try directly stimulating my glans to test my sensitivity.

I found is that my glans is really sensitive and can cause me to involuntarily flex when I touch it when fully erect. And friction with lube feels so much better than dry friction which I avoid because it's uncomfortable. If I rub a couple of wet fingers over it lightly it's intense and I can orgasm quickly.

I was really surprised when I found out how intense rubbing the glans directly was. And I think that if I still have all of this sensitivity after all of these years it's not going to simply vanish. I think I just let myself get worked up by reading tons and tons of horror stories online. Got a bit obsessed for a while. But I simply don't seem to have any issues and was just freaking myself out over nothing.

Again thanks for your reply. I'm glad to hear that you experience has been positive. :)

Hey CW8814, just read your thread, and I wanna say,  I'm glad you are feeling better about yourself, and that this forum helped you with that. You're a very eloquent writer. I enjoyed reading your post, and appreciate your contribution to the conversation. I am uncut, and go through phases of long term retraction, and non-retraction. I enjoy the retraction periods for a while, but I always seem to return to covered at some point. I think honestly that your configuration might be ideal in my opinion. I'd like to have a foreskin that covers the glans when flaccid, and automatically retracts when erect. I'm hoping that I might achieve that someday. At any rate, I think you're good the way you are, and I'm glad you're happy with it.

That what i hate about Anti cir groups, they talk a load of twaddle and they wouldn't even understand this site and what some guys do.
I have been retracted for years like some here and my head is the same colour as your exposed, the fact that you have the option that it goes back when flaccid is great.
