Male -- Erections
Posted on: 12/21/2009
I am 14 and uncircumcised. My foreskin retracts when I'm erect or normal (a little bit tight when erect maybe), but it doesn't look circumcised when I pull it back. Also it doesn't retract naturally when I get an erection. I've had no sexual activity. (By the way, it looks like it rolls out the other way instead of going in and under the head.) It's been worrying me for a while now because I can't seem to find anyone else saying the same thing on the internet. Thanks
I'm not sure what your concern is, but as long as the foreskin can be retracted --
1) when not erect, to allow daily cleansing, and
2) when erect, to allow maximal sensation
-- there is no problem. Exactly how the skin looks when pulled back is very variable.
