The man I love and have loved for the past few years is uncut. This never shocked me due to the fact that I learned at a young age that circumcision is a thing that happens to men—which I have always found weird. Though, do not misunderstand me, both uncut and cut penises are beautiful. Speaking as a woman, the genitalia of the person whom we love is the best <3. So do not be afraid to show off dat dick! Uncut or cut, it doesn’t matter; it’s you!


Thanks for this! Many of us, both circumcised and not, appreciate the encouragement :)

"So I was wondering, are there any particular type of condoms that work better for uncircumcised men? My main man just can’t wear them. They physically hurt him."

It’s not a problem I’ve run into, so does anyone have any advice?

Is there a general consensus on people preferring cut or uncut? I can't ask any of the people I know because it's pretty embarrassing to me.

It’s really hard to give a general consensus, as opinions are so mixed, and there are a lot of people in each of these “groups.” There are people who won’t even touch an intact penis, those who will accept it very begrudgingly, those who don’t mind one way or the other, or have a very weak preference, those who think circumcision is senseless but aren’t so passionate about it, the hardcore intactivists… there’s really no general statement on what people prefer.

That said, I can say that less and less people people these days are repulsed by foreskin as compared to previous times, and the amount of people who recognize that foreskin is okay will only grow. It also varies geographically: the West coast generally is the most pro-foreskin, while the Northeast and Midwest are the least accepting. There’s a pretty interesting map of circumcision rates by state here.

I can remember being younger and (as a gay guy) I was watching gay porn (with shame, because I had some pretty serious self-loathing stemming from my school life, new hormones and religious parents, but that's another story!) and seeing uncircumcised penises and being confused as all hell because I'd never seen anything but cut dicks so I was completely confused and couldn't ask anyone about it. It wasn't until a year or so later that I finally learned of circumcision.

It’s a shame that so many young people live without even KNOWING they’ve been altered in such a huge way. It’s bad enough that this is done when we’re not even old enough to remember it happening, and the fact that many of us aren’t even told, and have to discover it ourselves, just makes that even more messed up.

I was 10 when I learned about circumcision. I had stumbled onto some info about it on a message board I frequented as a kid. Prior to that, I had just assumed my penis was as it should be, and that everyone else’s was too. It’s a rude awakening!

Hey there! Thanks for everything you do! I'm new to the whole restoration concept, but it really seem interesting. I fantasize about where I could be this time next year (cl 1-2 right now). In sure you've covered this before, but what device do you recommend for beginners? I read that once you start, the glans becomes so sensitive that being left uncovered is almost too much.

You’re welcome!

I don’t necessarily recommend any particular device for beginners; rather, it tends to be a matter of what devices you *can* use. At CI-1 or 2, you might not have enough slack skin to use most devices. Some methods that are good for this stage are T-Taping, cross taping, and manual tugging. I like manual tugging, personally.

If you haven’t seen it already, here’s a useful comparison of most (but not all) methods there are: http://www.x-mail.net/restore/compare.htm

As for the glans getting too sensitive to be left uncovered, that won’t occur until you have coverage at least semi-regularly. At that point, you should be retaining most of the time you’re not actively restoring anyway.

95% of uncircumcised respondents are happy with their status, while only 50% of circumcised respondents are happy with it.
Now stop saying people don&#8217;t complain about being circumcised.

Hi I am uncut and have been having a problem with getting splits or tears in my foreskin during sex, I don't notice until after of cause and it then becomes quite painfull do you have any advice, I am married so I only have sex with my wife. Thanks

Do you have a particularly tight foreskin (i.e. needs a bit of force to fully retract, if it can at all)? It may be beneficial to do some stretching exercises or use creams to loosen it up a little. I wrote a post about ways to treat phimosis, which could apply to you: http://uncutting.tumblr.com/post/30180562464/

It also might help to use lube when you have sex, if you don’t already.

If anyone else has advice, chime in!

Some uncircumcised penises can still be dry and cracked. Is this normal?

I’ve seen some intact penises that have a glans with a somewhat cracked appearance, but I think that might just be more of a texture than actual dryness. As for ones that are actually totally dry? I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen that. Maybe those are penises with shorter foreskins, that don’t provide the same level of protection as those with longer foreskins?

If anyone has any input here, it would be appreciated!

I like to think that seeing Alexander Skarsgard's (seemingly) uncut penis on True Blood will make young people realise that being uncut isn't weird or gross, because seriously, who doesn't want to sleep with him? :p

I’ve never seen True Blood, but I can certainly imagine that being a positive thing for people’s perception of foreskin.

From Wikimedia Commons. Most of these are before-and-after shots, and I think it’s kind of interesting to see the same penis in both states.

(It would be really cool to see a penis in all three states: intact, cut, and restored, though I have yet to come across this anywhere.)
