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.

RECENT PHIMOSIS

Mr R Stuart,
With a comp-lete lack of courage to visist my G.P, I was interested in your observations on Phimosis. It alarms me somewhat to see that most of the recommended cures involve circumsision.

I appear to have developed this condition within the last 2 years ( I am now 31), this seems to have coincided with me ceasing playing football and increasing the amount of cycling I do.

Is there any link between Phimosis and lack of hygiene?, it does seem to be more than coincidence that this has happened when I am now wearing cycling shorts more often than I ever did previously. Are there any practical cures?.
