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.

i found your site very informative, and i feel as if i can agree with you for i am not too open about any sexual problems i have and am not very keen on sharing it with my phsyician.

i am a 21 yr old male, who has just started to have sex recently (last 2months) for the first few times. i am not circumsized, and my partner is very tight, prior to me losing my virginity i would masturbate with my foreskin in place and the foreskin would not retract backwards during a proper erection, thus i would masturbate with the foreskin showing a little portion of the tip of my penis, and i would reach an orgasm in approx. 2-4 mins with no pain. i never thought of pulling the foreskin back for the pain was too much.

now that i have sex often i find that when i penetrate my partner the foreskin is forced back automatically & cause much pain & i have not reached an orgasm with my partner even though we have vigorous sex for 15 mins. thus the last few times i personally, manually removed the foreskin back myself, the last time i did this, we had sex for 13 mins, and afterwards when i went to the washroom i noticed a tear in my foreskin and a considerable amount of patches of blood on my underwear.

the last few times i have been telling my partner i have reached an orgasm but i havent come close. could you please tell me what this condition is called? what are the solutions? the severity of this situation? is this foreskin condition the reason for me not attaining an orgasm during sex?

A summary of my answer is that this is possibly frenulum breve and phimosis - the simplest solution for these combined conditions is not a full circumcision - it is a dorsal slit and simply dividing the frenulum.
