July 15, 2019 / By Siena Question:
I'm uncut and my foreskin doesnt go back easily. I have to pull it back and it hurts wen it's all the way back. I'm 33 years old. Is there a permanent solution to this? Is it too late to be circumsised? I'm not looking forward to the pain of surgery really.

Even if you do have phimosis, you don't need circumcision. Your foreskin is fine. As long as you can reveal the head to wash it when you shower, it's fine. As for the problem when hard, your friend is right. Gentle stretching will fix that.
Circumcision risks include:
Circumcision = loss of sensitivity according to new study
Higher erectile dysfunction rates after circumcision:
When women didn't know what penis they were dealing with (circumcised or uncircumcised) 9 out of 10 preferred uncircumcised (study).
Foreskin anatomy and function (keeps the glans soft and protects it, etc).
Circumcision is extremely painful.
The USA is the last advanced nation doing it, but rates have fallen down from over 90% in the 1960s to as low as 21% here in California currently. From CNN:
Circumcision was actually promoted in the USA at first to stop masturbation (in hopes of it being tight enough to require lubes and not have skin to slide since the foreskin is already moist)
USA = highest HIV rates in advanced nations (and highest circumcision rates). CIA statistics:
And one study already trashed the claims of the study that said that circumcision reduces HIV.
Worldwide circumcision rates:
And discussion of common circumcision benefit myths and discussion of all the risks that can develop over time and negative side effects (buried penis, meatal stenosis, etc):
And here's how to make your foreskin a bit more loose (from my experience):
You can stretch it or use a cream, thanks to modern medicine. I once had this and it hasn't been a problem ever since. I posted the following on another question, but it should be the same information you need:
Some may say that circumcision will fix it, but circumcision's risks include reduction in sensitivity and pleasure, and making masturbation more difficult according to studies (including a few new ones from a few months ago). Oddly enough that's how it was promoted in the USA since masturbation was bad, haha. There's a reason why the USA is the last remaining advanced nation still doing it, and even so, it's getting a lot less popular (it's now as low as 14% in some states). Save that as a last resort, as you're doing. That's only one of the few risks, there's more listed here, in addition to the studies and statistics:
I was the same when I was younger, and now it slides fine with no problems whatsoever. Just pull back your foreskin when you shower the most you can without forcing it, and rub the head. That should encourage it to separate from the head. This is probably all you have to do, since this is common especially with teens. You just haven't 'used' it enough, as in masturbation and washing it. The same goes for sensitivity; the more your rub it the less sensitive it'll get (start using water when you shower then rub a little more each day).
And if its rather tight, you can get a cream that works in almost 95% of cases. It's 0.05% betamethasone or betamethasone dipropionate. And unlike circumcision it is very cheap ($12 in the USA), painless, and you don't risk decreasing sensitivity/pleasure and making masturbation more difficult.
Try that cream. It works. Doctors often just mention circumcision since its a surgery that brings a lot of money to them, especially in the USA.
If you have questions, e-mail me from my profile since I've gone through this. I'll be happy to answer any questions.

You should have been taught by mid childhood to daily fully retract your foreskin for washing. Had you been doing this then you would have become used to erections with the foreskin retracted since they would have become natural for you. As it is, you have got thoroughly used to only stimulating your glans through the foreskin.
The glans, and especially its rim, is the sexually most sensitive part of the entire penis. During intercourse it needs to be in direct contact with the vagina to give and receive maximum stimulation and hence pleasure. This is one reason why the instructions for use of a condom tell you to fully retract the foreskin before putting the condom on. When the foreskin covers the glans during intercourse it severely masks the desired sensation and hence seriously reduces pleasure for both of you - but especially for your partner who may never reach her orgasm.
That you find it hard to get erect with your foreskin retracted is a pursy mental thing. You need to start by getting your erection through the foreskin and then fully retracting to continue your masturbation to orgasm. This would mimic the most common way of working for intercourse, with foreplay getting you erect then putting on the condom and proceeding to penetration and intercourse itself.
First of all, it's perfectly normal for your foreskin to not automatically roll back upon erection. Some guys have shorter foreskins and other guys have longer foreskins - that's just what you're born with. However, you should be able to easily and comfortably retract (pull back) your foreskin with your hand, even during an erection. If not, then your foreskin is a bit tight. Now relax. This isn't a huge problem. There are things you can do to "fix" this on your own before you go see a doctor. And if you don't want to get circumcised, there are plenty of alternatives. The first thing you should try are called stretching exercises. See links 1 and 2 for good detailed instructions on what to do. It's best to do these exercises after a bath/shower when the skin's most flexible. Do these exercises for 10-20 minutes every day for 2-3 months or so. Over time, your foreskin will loosen up and you'll be able to pull it back easily and comfortably to expose the entire glans (penis head). It's important to be diligent about this and do it every day, but don't stretch too hard such that you rip or cause tears in your foreskin, as that'll scar up and make things worse in the long-run. If after 3 months and you see little/no progress, then it's a good idea to ask your doctor for a prescription cream that helps loosen the foreskin (link 3). If you combine the cream you doctor then prescribes with the stretching exercises above, the whole process will be quicker and easier. In almost all cases of a tight foreskin the above treatments are all that's necessary. So you can ignore any suggestions or recommendations to get circumcised, as that's just not necessary. Worse comes to worst, there is an alternative surgery that removes little/no foreskin, is cheaper, is less painful, and has a quicker recovery time (link 4). However, not all doctors know or are skilled in this procedure, so it would be important to find a doctor who's both willing and experienced in doing them. See the remaining links for more useful info. Best of luck!! P.S. It's not a huge deal to put on a condom if you can't pull back your foreskin. But just know that it won't feel nearly as good as it could, as the foreskin covers up the most sensitive parts of your penis. Ideally you'd want to be able to pull your foreskin back, put on the condom, then go at it - but that'll have to wait until your foreskin's fully loosened (link 7). Some girls care, some don't. Just try to be as clean as possible and there shouldn't be any complaints (from a reasonable girl).

Exercise it for some time until it goes smoothly. It is important for the hygiene since its easy to get infections under the foreskin. When I was a kid I had a trouble with it and doctors pulled it down for me first time (very painful) but later I had to exercise it for some weeks (with some lubricant). Since than it works just fine.

You might have a condition known as phimosis.
You should go see your doctor. Or, if you don't like the idea of circumcision, you should research phimosis and "stretching exercises" on the internet. It might be possible to cure it yourself just by stretching the foreskin out every day.

Most women would expect to be able to pull the foreskin back and see and feel the head.
It sounds like your foreskin is just a bit tight which means you need to stretch it to loosen it up. Worst case scenario is circumcision, but 9 times out 10 a tight foreskin can be fixed with daily stretching exercises for a few weeks, or if that doesn't work you can get a cream from your doctor.
Here's a link which contain stretching instructions for 'phimosis':
Try the stretching every day in the shower but if it doesn't improve after a few weeks then go to your doctor. He can prescribe you a topical steroid cream that will help loosen your tight foreskin.
And this link has some more useful advice:
