The foreskin is typically retractable over the glans, and depending on its length, which varies between males, it may remain covering the glans whether the penis is flaccid or erect. Research found that 95% of males were able to fully retract their foreskin by adulthood.
The World Health Organization states that functions of the foreskin include "keeping the glans moist, protecting the developing penis in utero, or enhancing sexual pleasure due to the presence of nerve receptors." The foreskin may become subject to a number of conditions, treatments for which can include circumcision, whereby some or all of the foreskin is surgically removed. This procedure is most commonly elected for religious reasons. Regular washing under the foreskin was found to reduce the risk of numerous penile disorders.
he Royal Australasian College of Physicians has stated that the foreskin protects the glans, and that "the foreskin is a primary sensory part of the penis, containing some of the most sensitive areas of the penis. The effects of circumcision on sexual sensation however are not clear, with reports of both enhanced and diminished sexual pleasure following the procedure in adults and little awareness of advantage or disadvantage in those circumcised in infancy." The Royal Dutch Medical Association (2010) states that many sexologists view the foreskin as "a complex, erotogenic structure that plays an important role ‘in the mechanical function of the penis during sexual acts, such as penetrative intercourse and masturbation’."
In children, the foreskin usually covers the glans completely, but not always in adults. Schöberlein (1966) conducted a study among 3000 young men from Southern Germany, found that 49.6% had the glans fully covered by foreskin; 41.9% partially covered; 8.5% uncovered - around half of which (4%) have the foreskin atrophied spontaneously without previous surgery. During erection, the degree of foreskin retraction varies considerably; in some adults, the foreskin remains covering the glans until retracted by sexual activity.
Phimosis can be treated by gently stretching the foreskin, by changing masturbation habits, using topical steroid ointments, preputioplasty, or by the more radical option of circumcision.
This is a subject close to my heart! Being natural(uncircumcised) myself I sometimes feel that on the web we men with foreskin are sometimessubject to the same strange reactions and prejudices as women with large labia!In both cases the issue seems to be an incorrect perception that your genitalshave more skin than is natural! And this predominantly seems to be encounteredwith American women who have never (or rarely) encountered an uncut cock eitherin real life or in photos/videos online. This is of course very much due to theUS’s historic barbarism of carrying out male circumcision unnecessarily due toreligious or simply traditional reasons. Apparently circumcision is the US isreducing in recent years but it seems to me its predominance has caused manyAmerican women to think foreskins are weird, gross, or disgusting. I have comeacross many forum posts, and even youtube videos stating this.
In fact, in mainstream porn, foreskins have for a long timerarely been seen. Either cos the male performers were circumcised, or if notthey only showed their dicks with their foreskins fully retracted. This causedme to some time ago start to seriously doubt whether my own cock was “normal””I have since realised it is, and foreskins are being shown in porn more andmore frequently – even though it’s still quite rare other than in gay porn.
However, it became a bit of a mission with me to “educate”people about this, so I started my own Tumblr blog which specifically focuseson erect penises with the foreskin unretracted. You can find my blog at http://krisfoen.tumblr.com . If anyonewants a quicker way to browse the images just go directly to the Archive pageat http://krisfoen.tumblr.com/archive
As a heterosexual male my main fascination is still ofcourse with pussies, and particularly those with nice meaty labia minora, but Icontinue to look for foreskin images and add them to my blog regularly. Anycomments/observations or other feedback always welcome.
I love this feeling....mmmh

It used to be that men were only circumsiced if they were Jewish, and now everyone is doing it.I will definitely take a look at your tumblr blog. Uncircumcised penises are so fascinating to me! They're adorable.
