Q. i'm 21 years old, and my penis outer skin covers the shaft. Is it natural to have like that?
from my young age the outer skin of my penis covers my shaft, and only a little of the tip is exposed even if i try to pull the skin upwards. Is it natural to have it like that? I've seen in all porn movies and other sex videos that for all those guys the outer skin can be pulled up half the way. Will this affect my sex life?
|A1||i went through that link. But still i'm not clear. The flash video shown over there is different from what I can see with my penis. In the video the foreskin can be pulled a long way, and the head of the penis is fully exposed. But this doesn't happen with me. Even at erect stage, my head is exposed only a little bit( like in the first part of first picture ). Can someone give more info?|
|A2||The outer skin of the penis is called Foreskin. Usually the foreskin retracts during an erection and therefore does not interfere with your sexual life. The guys you see in the porn movies have probably had a circumcision. Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin, either partially or completely. It may be done for religious, aesthetic, health, or hygiene reasons, or to treat disease. Here is a website that has more information:|
