uncircumcised penis

I am 28 and my penis is uncircumcised. When erect, the foreskin does not go back. But I had no problems in masturbation. When fully erect, i can pull my foreskin back with little friction. My question is, will this cause problems after my marriage? during sexual intercourse? How will I insert it? With the foreskin pulled back? Or with the foreskin in its place? If I have to wear a condom, do i need to pull my foreskin and wear it? I am still a virgin and hence confused...pls help...

Hi Anon,

When erect, an uncircumcised man's foreskin generally retracts over the shaft, exposing the head of the penis and looking very similar to a circumcised penis. During intercourse, oral sex, and masturbation, the retracted foreskin acts like a lubricant or a sleeve. As the penis thrusts, it glides on its own bedding of movable skin, which minimizes friction. You do not have to pull back your skin. I can understand your concern given that you are a virgin, but try not to stress out over this--when the time finally comes for you to have sex, you will be fine.

Should be the final question :)
You say that when erect, 'an uncircumcised man's foreskin generally retracts over the shaft, exposing the head of the penis'. But that is not happening in my case. The foreskin still covers the penis..that's why I had this doubt...

Hi Anon,

Even if when you are fully erect, the foreskin still covers all or part of the head of the penis, you do not have to retract it during sex.
