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.

2012 : note from author: My previous idea of monitoring boys before puberty is impractical, unecessary and now only of historical interest. please see Postscript.


I just want to express a short thank you for your book "Origins". I've learned from it that I have a frenulum breve, and it ripped two days ago. I was ashamed by it and I didn't really know what to do with it, or if I wanted to see a docter. But I'm now considering it. Thank you very much for your book!
