This site discusses phimosis in its specific forms of phimotic ring, frenulum breve, adhesions or skinbridges. During erection these conditions inhibit the relationship between foreskin and glans. This functionally restricts the erection, and thus has an effect on the sexuality. With our culture's attitudes on health care, it would be appropriate to monitor boys before puberty and encourage early prevention.

2012 : note from author: My previous idea of monitoring boys before puberty is impractical, unecessary and now only of historical interest. please see Postscript.

The RELATIONSHIP between FRENULUM BREVE and the HYMEN

Grewel researched this and found no real anatomical connection.- Personally I think your urologist is about the most wacky I`ve ever heard. To change the subject a little ...

I recently was hearing about how in Bolivia, the youths describe themselves as "cartridged" and eagerly await their first intercourse when their frenulum rips, and they can claim to be "uncartridged" - interesting from our perspective is that in Bolivia (probably among the Indian population) the frenulum structure and its ripping are so predictable that this has developed a "meaning" and is considered on a par with breaking the hymen -

What should you do? - stop listening to wacky urologists and read my site, -the frenulum and its treatment are described in vivid detail - start at the www.male-initiation.net welcome page- links are clear

Forum letter 601

Hello. I went to see my doctor to ask him about my tight foreskin. Although it completely retracts there's that tight and a little painful feeling at the frenulum area. My doctor (without seeing my penis) thought it would be frenulum breve and sent me to the urologist. The urologist turned to be an old man who thought my frenulum wasn't that tight, and told me with normal sex practice it would eventually get looser, or rip. I didn't like the idea, but went home and started daily stretching of the area. After 2 months there was no visible gain in looseness, so

I went to the urologist again. He seemed a little bit upset for seeing me again there, and he explained that frenulum is the anatomic male equivalent to female himen, and added that women don't complain about doctors not taking their hymen out before sex. Well, that was the first time I ever heard something like that. In fact, I had read that there is absolutely no relationship between the frenulum and the hymen, in the way that there's no male loss of virginity by the ripping of the frenulum. Can anyone tell me who is right, and whether I should take a frenuloplasty?

Thanks a lot. PS: If you respond, please send a copy of your message
