Let alone the fact that I have numbness in certain areas of my dick now! It’s not just the nerves I want though, it’s the whole package. Would a doctor know anything about how to restore by the way?
I checked out the sites a bit. Thanks a lot guys.

I’m circumsized, but apparently was cut somewhat loosely. When I was quite young my mom told me the doctor had left some extra skin on my penis, and someday I might want to get it taken off. I didn’t know what the hell she was talking about. Left some? Huh? Did that mean he had cut some off? I was bewildered but didn’t press the issue. It’s a little uncomfortable when mommy talks to you about penis skin. ;)
My frenulum is gone. Prior to PE I’d occasionally get partial head coverage on bad flaccid days. It happens much more frequently now. At really bad flaccid times it looks almost restored. Jelqing stretched my skin some, and hanging even more. I don’t want any more skin growth, as I prefer the cut look and feel. PE will grow skin to an extent, and I don’t think it is completely avoidable. Bib wrote that all his hanging practically restored his foreskin, which was what he wanted.
The point of my rambling is that PE techniques, some more than others, will grow skin. Also do a search here on Tom Hubbard’s plastic easter egg foreskin restoration gizmo.
As far as head sensitivity is concerned, mine diminished after I switched from briefs to boxers about 10 years ago. I remember at first it was a challenge to stay flaccid as my dick flopped around unconstrained when I walked. Eventually it desensitized to the extra stimulation.

I found this site only a few days ago and have been reading some of the posts in the various forums. I have some experience with foreskin restoration (FR) and wanted to ask about it and PE and lo and behold here’s a current thread on the topic.
If I may, I’d like to address some of the things already said. Please forgive this long response to several previous posts.
Drone said: “One other quick question. Just how big is the sensitivity difference anyway?”
That depends on a number of things. As circumcised men get older, their loss of sensitivity increases. The type of underwear, if any, you’ve been wearing and how much your clothes have rubbed against the glans makes a difference. Still, all men who have lost their foreskin have a decrease in sensitivity and covering the glans will help them increase it. Those who have had more keritinization of the glans will see the most dramatic difference when their penis returns to a more natural state. Orgasms are much more intense for me since I’ve been able to keep my glans covered.
I should honestly say that I have not completed my restoration. It is a chore to strap up daily and tug on your penis with elastic or weights for hours. Like PE, there have to be off days for recovery and growth, but my off days turned into off weeks and I stopped my restoration efforts about 18 months ago. The results of the seven or eight months that I was consistent at tugging are that I currently have greater than 50% glans coverage when flaccid and even that small amount of coverage has made a great difference in the return of sensitivity. I’ve recently started FR again and reading on new techniques on-line brought me to other penis related sites such as this one. Now I’m considering PE as well as FR.

Restoring alone does take time. Those just beginning the process are warned that it can take up to three years to attain full coverage when erect. Perhaps your experience, based on PE techniques, made you gain skin faster. I’m hoping that’s true as I would like to begin my PE routine and continue tugging. I’m still trying to work out the logistics of that. :)
Drone said: “Well, if anyone could comment, I would like to know if restoring your foreskin is posible with no frenulum, and if so, how different would it be from an uncut dick as far as sensation for the man and the lady? What I want to know is, will my dick be exactly the same as it was as far as sensation before they circ’d be when I restore my foreskin? Or will it be different? I hear you can start to produce this substance that keeps it moist and lubricates a woman…”
Restoration can be accomplished without a frenulum; most men circ’d in the U.S. have everything and then some taken away. Some circumcised Europeans and Jews done in the traditional manner, usually have some or all of the frenulum left. The end result will not be as functional as an intact man’s natural system and the specialized erogenous tissues (the frenulum and “ridged band”) will not be there. Still, the changes in the glans make a world of difference.
I don’t have sex with women, but an excellent book on the subject of heterosexual sex and the foreskin is Sex As Nature Intended It. The author is a woman and the book has been recommended repeatedly in the FR community.

Most physicians know very little about foreskin restoration and many would even discourage it. Your best bet is the web site links provided earlier. I’m a member of the previously mentioned Yahoo group (foreskinrestoration3) and have learned a lot from those guys. You can also do an Internet search with Google or most any other search engine and find tons of information.
Finally, if you can find it them, there have been a few books written on the subject.
Drone, I’d be quite happy to be your mentor in this process should you decide to begin.
Originally posted by pumaz Prickle, by recreating the foreskin the head is covered most of the time. Guys like me who have been circumsized do not have the same sensitivity as uncircumsized people. My head is always exposed and always stimulated so it gets desensitized.
Couldn’t that be good for a man that suffers from cumming too soon as the desensitisation helps delay orgasm? There are even condoms with a substance to desensitise men with this problem.
I am fairly young and my lack of foreskin and switching to boxers has helped in preventing me getting erections all the time. :) —Like hobby said about when first switching to boxers that trying to keep flacid is a real struggle, I too experienced this but it then went away.—- But note that I think this may have happened when I changed from nylon boxers (more like “continuios erection boxers” ;) ) to cotton boxers.
I am afraid however that as I get older (now 18) I may eventually become impotent due to the already ample desensitisation for my age!?
BTW, I switched from nylon boxers to cotton boxers because of the overheating of my testicales which caused then to peel skin from all the scrratching from the irritation, and the reason I tried the nylon boxers was because the cotton briefs were also causing this problem.
And lastly how the hell am I supposed to know if I still have a frenulum?
Loved going to Cuba! :)
I'm surprised that Americans can't go because their government says they can't!

Without venturing too far into the pro- vs anti-circumcision arguments, why cut off an important, useful piece of anatomy at birth to solve a problem that may or may not exist as an adult? There are other ways of dealing the premature ejaculation than by using such a permanent “solution.”

I think your age and hormones may have a lot to do with your frequent erections, but I’d bet that if your still sensitive glans was covered with a foreskin instead of rubbing against your underwear perhaps unwanted erections might be less of a problem.
cascade said:“I am afraid however that as I get older (now 18) I may eventually become impotent due to the already ample desensitisation for my age!?
Impotence, that is having trouble getting an erection, can be due to any number of things. Men on the Yahoo foreskin restoration group have talked about improved erections after restoring so you may have a point. Even those older men still able to get erect often have such a loss of sensitivity that it makes sex very uncomfortable for their partners because of the length of time it takes to become stimulated to orgasm/ejaculation. Covering the glans and returning it to a more normal state often improves their sex lives.

The Internet is full of photos of intact male anatomy. Here’s one page from a foreskin restoration site that shows an intact frenulum (near the bottom of the page). It’s function is to pull the foreskin over the glans when flaccid as well as to contribute to the “gliding motion” many intact men experience during intercourse. The frenulum is said to be the most erogenous area of the penis and sadly many men loose it when they’re circumcised.
I’m cut and married to a Scandinavian. My circumsized willie is wife’s first uncut experience. What she says is that an uncut dick is a little more comfortable due to additional skin on the shaft and therefore, does not require her to be as wet to keep her vagina from getting friction sore. For women like her that don’t get terribly wet during sex, being uncut is better. It’s not a disadvantage for me however- I give her a lot of oral stimulation, followed by intercourse, when usually she’ll cum before I do. Consequently, she’ll ask me to stop pumping her (getting sore)and be obligated to blow me dry for my orgasm!!
I rather equate the matter of being uncut to that of wearing a loose condom. The other “membrane” or additional skin in the case of being uncut, has / would lesson friction and consequently, my enjoyment.
A male cousin of my wife’s had to recently go in for an adult circumcision. His wife, also a Scandinavian, loves the additional friction as a result of the circumcision. She probably “runs” really wet and the male cousin does not miss his “lost” skin.
I am sure that the reason I had such easier restoration was because of pumping. I attirbute that to the fact that I did not know much about it when I started and used too much pressure which gave the dougnut effect behind the glans. After learning to use lower pressure, I reduced that effect. But I was told that many who pump do get an additional foreskin effect. I have enough foreskin to produce moisture on the glans, and yes it has increased the sensitivity. With total errection, I have little foreskin so that part is not an option for me to give an opinion. I can say that with the total foreskin cover in a flaccid mode, you do have a much more sensitive glans and in oral sex or foreplay you are much, much more “excitable.” It is possible that age has something to do with this restoring too. If you are wanting to restore foreskin, I strongly reccomend you try pumping and see what results you get. Iowa
Great! Now I’m learning what my parents were hiding all along…
This is really upsetting, it almost makes me want to just say screw it and never use it again…
I have NO frenulum, and parts of my dick feel numb. So, I guess I don’t have the time for restoration either, My whole day is taken up with the addition of PE.

I’ve read the angry stories of man men who discover what they’ve lost with infant circumcision and it can be very disturbing. Most of them want to confront or blame their parents because it was they who allowed it to happen. Yet I think most parents try to do what’s best for their kids and many have no clue what the foreskin is and what changes the loss if it can cause. Being angry with them now will not make anything better. You can talk to them and find out why they allowed it and how informed (or not) they were at the time. But being angry is not going to create a good atmosphere for discussion. I’d encourage you to join one of the Yahoo restoration groups and “spill your guts” there before confronting your parents.
Most circ’d guys in the U.S. have no frenulum and they seem to compensate for it in other ways. Regaining sensitivity in the glans is one thing you can do to increase your sexual pleasure.
Have you considered that your PE routine might be the cause of numb areas on your penis? It may not be completely the result of your circumcision. As far as timing goes, you shouldn’t be doing PE every day anyway (from what I’ve read) and you don’t have to do restoration every day either. I am working on my own schedule so I can do both. Don’t throw in the towel yet.
I do 3 things for PE and have found that they all work together over all. I hang in the morning, right after that I start my foreskin restoration ala tug-a-hoy knock-off which keeps my length extended after the hang. I tug w/ moderate tension for 10-12 hours. and then when I take off the tugger I stretch my balls (which also hits my ligs for length training) for a half hour. I do this Tuesday through Friday and rest Saturday through Monday.
I’m not pissed so much that they did it with the right intentions back then, just that I tell them what it does and they STILL think it was right to give me no option on it. Oh well, can’t help it if a girl’s not going to be satisfied with it the way it is…

Jelqing will cause your foreskin to grow and even more so if you use a lube which isnt as slick.Also try streching your foreskin along with your glands.
i wasn’t cut when i was born,but for some reason,thru masturbation or something else,i look cut.my forskin will only get to the edge of my glands when hard.i can still cover my head when totally shrunk when i try.
