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.

PAIN leads to FEAR leads to GUILT

When I first read about Phimosis on your website, I cried.
I am not circumsized and any sexual activity for me has been extremely painful.

I am 22 now and I never new what was wrong with my penis. In fact, I have been so turned off to sex that I've managed to stay a virgin all these years.
Whenever I get an erection, it is so uncomfortable that I don't even want to be sexual with my partners.

Sometimes urinating hurts. My erections don't last long and this has always affected my self-esteem. I would blame myself and feel sexually inadequete.

I'm happy now that there is a reason and a name for my condition.
Although I haven't seen a doctor yet, all of the symptoms for phimosis are present.

Thank you for your help.
