I read your essay with great interest. I'm 22 and I have a problem
that ressembles the one you described. The problem almost ruined the
relationship with the woman of my life. I'm going to consult a physician
next week and reading your essay helped me to understand what I'm going
Thank you very much. You don't know how much I needed to read this!
Hi Robin. I'll try to help you the best I can, but there are two
obstacles that will restrain me from giving precise details. First,
I'm not sure I fully understand my problem and I can't definitively
say that all my problems are related to the fact that my foreskin is
too tight (even tough I'm pretty sure they are). Then, I have to mention
to you that because of the fact that English is only my second language,
I won't be able to use the proper biological terms (but I hope you
will still understand what I want to say).
I can fully retract my foreskin at normal times, but I most definitively
can't when I have an erection. I dont feel any pain at times of erection,
but I feel a big discomfort when there is pressure to retract the foreskin.
I also have a major difficulty in getting and keeping an erection (it
goes away very quickly - sometimes as soon as the penis is touched)
- but I don't know to what extend this is related to the tightness
of the foreskin. Because of these two problems, I didn't experience
too many real sexual experiences (with penetration). During the experiences
I had, some were relatively painless, even though I could feel a certain
discomfort for hours after. Some other experiences were more painful.
I guess it depended on the level of lubrication of the female organ
The problem had big psychological repercussions. I experienced a
big lack of self confidence and self esteem. It probably also contributed
in part to the use of soft drugs and alcohol (to forget the problem).
I also rarely tought of the problem, trying to forget it as soon as
it came to my mind. There was also one or two times when there was
a cerain bleeding (during my first experiences), but I couldn't tell
exactly where it came from, because I only noticed it the morning after.
I don't recall having any infections (except when I was 5 or 6 years
old) or any other more serious problems that you mentionned in your

appreciate it, though, if you could ask the more specific questions

I hope the few details I'm sending you will be able to help you
in your project...
The discomfort for hours after, and particularly the bleeding are typical
