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 encourage early prevention.

Hello there,
I am 23 and didn't realise that the foreskin was meant to retract. I have a girlfriend and when we try to have intercourse it hurts me because it feels like the skin is pulling all the time. I'm writing to you firstly to see what your advice is before I see a urologist. I have only really thought about this problem because I have seen pictures of other men and now the situation with my girlfriend.

RS: letter indicates frenulum breve ..
