    You will be able to see the 'head' when he is not erected.

    Just tell him to look. As AFNANFM said, if there's skin covering the head of his penis then he isn't. If there's no skin there then he is. Or look at some porn. Most of the guys in that are circumsized and you can compare!

    Okay, I think I've found the right topic. I'm still a virgin (late in the day, I've had all the piss taking you can imagine, it doesn't bother me anymore..hehe *S*)

    I've been talking to a woman over the internet for a year, she's coming to visit me in the next few months and we plan to have sex. What is worrying me, is I think I may have "Phimosis" as covered in your page about sexual topics. I am not circumsised, but when erect the foreskin doesn't go back over the head. I've never heard of this before but we were talking on the phone earlier, and she mentioned that she didn't think this was normal. I've always thought this was apparent simply because I was uncircumsised.

    Anyway, In the page on thesite, it mentions if the skin wont pull back over the head, that there is a problem, yet in the reply in this message you say "if the skin covers the head, he's not cirumsised" can anyone clarify this for me? It is starting to get me quite concerned.. (especially when my g/f told me how they cured her son of it.. <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="frown">

    Guys, read on and wince.. The doctor actually had to manually force the foreskin back over the head of his penis!!! <IMG SRC="redface.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I suppose this isn't as dead as some topics that have been resurrected.

    Basically, foreskins can be different from guy to guy. Some have ones that cover the head, some don't; some foreskins pull back easily, some don't etc etc

    Basically, your foreskin should be able to retract when your penis goes hard or be loose enough to pull back relatively easily. Also, it should be able to retract when your penis is soft so that you can clean underneath the foreskin. If you can't do either, you may need some medical advice or attention.

    Doctors can advise you how to exercise the skin gently so that it stretches over time but circumcision would only be the last answer if all else fails. If in doubt (which you seem to be), get it checked by your doctor - ten minutes of embarressment with him will save a life time of worry and grief over your very important penis. <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I had Phismosis about a year ago. I read about it on the net and about cream you can get which fixes it. I went to 4 different doctors and they all said that cream didn't work and the only option was circumcision.

    I then found out about a web site called NORM (National Organisation For Restoring Men). I talked to a DR from that site and he sent me the cream. I used it for 5 days and I was cured.

    Contact that site. They'll help you if your Dr won't.
