Yep! Or even just making it longer in general, not necessarily to overhang (i.e. those who have a short foreskin and want more glans coverage). It works the same way as foreskin restoration, doing gentle tugging to gradually encourage skin growth.
It comes as no surprise to anyone who knows how much I love birth that I am a fan of the yoni (vagina). It is sacred to me - all of those beautiful folds, and powerful defenses - soft and strong. But some are surprised to learn that I love the penis, too.
Reading over the current debate. I found myself thinking about all of the penises I have come into contact over the years. I remember learning about intact men in my health classes in school. The teacher did not have a high opinion of them and talked at length about the smelly smegma. What a creepy image that was for me as a young woman!
I remember seeing my first intact man - when I was a student nurse. I expected some gross and smelly penis covered in cheesy goo (as described by my health teacher), but that was not the case. It was a little harder to do a sterile catheter on a flaccid penis with the foreskin trying to cover over the glans, but I managed, as unskilled as I was. And, it is probably here that I first began to appreciate the beauty of an intact penis. How protected - how, well, “right” it looked! I admit that I did not give it much thought over the years, but in my study of normal birth, I grew to realize that circumcision was yet another assault on normal functioning parts, and I think back on that first intact penis and smile at my pre-conceived notions. How silly it seems to think that the intact penis would be any more problematic, smelly or troublesome than my own wonderful yoni!
I think back over my few male lovers and their wonderful penises. Having seen photos of all of the scarring and skin changes due to surgery identified in a systematic fashion, I can see now how altered they all were. Those penises were also meant to have loving folds and powerful defenses, just like my beloved yoni, but the foreskin had been removed in a painful manner and left defenseless. Now that I am more penis-savvy, I can rapidly identify the structures that should have been there, and mysterious bits are not so mysterious (Like those puzzling little holes in the skin are actually suture marks - I have no doubt there were larger blood vessels meant to run in those spots). I don’t know if intact men are better lovers. My lovers have been, good, and kind, and given me wonderful pleasure. I cannot fault the men, or their equipment. But I do feel sadness for their penises that no longer have their full and rich body function.
Now, I have my own little boy, who we decided to leave intact after a few small debates. And I appreciate the foreskin even more - that loving cocoon for his penis. So essential, so misunderstood. It protects him from beasties, it is a barrier for wet underwear chafe, and it gives him pleasure. The more I know my son’s penis, the more I see how abnormal a circumcised penis really is. To compare them with the scar tissue, the suture marks, etc. of a circumcised boy - It really shocks me. Those dark, exposed glanses peeping out. They look unnatural, defenseless, stripped.
The penis is a beautiful part of any man, just as the yoni is a beautiful part of any woman. Let us leave them smooth, beautiful and intact, with all the protective, self-cleaning and pleasure-producing parts. It is not so much to do - it takes no effort to leave a penis or yoni alone, in all of its beauty, mystery and power.

Hopefully my oral sex guide can help you with that. If you (or anyone else) have any other questions, feel free to ask!
Sadly, I’ve encountered more than a few people who believe those particular myths. The ones in part 3 are really damn frustrating.
For anyone who didn’t see the original post, check out Psychology Today’s six-part series “Myths About Circumcision You Likely Believe”. It’s one of the best articles I’ve read in regards to debunking the common reasons that circumcision is practiced. If you’re not familiar with the circumcision debate or don’t know why it’s controversial, please give this a read. And even if you are well-informed, it’s worth a look anyway, as it’s a great source of information if you’re trying to talk to somebody about the topic.
Question from a follower:
"Being uncircumcised, when I have sex, I don’t normally pull back my foreskin because that makes it so sensitive it can hurt. But I have been with woman who try to pull it back, like that’s the right thing. I’m curious how many uncircumcised men pull it back versus leaves up it when having sex."
I know right! I’d love for my glans to have that color/texture.
Had sex with an uncircumcised man for the first time last weekend and it was incredible! All the stereotypes are correct, at least in my experience: felt more natural, he lasted longer, and he was much more sensitive around the frenulum - he seemed to be able to enjoy a blowjob even more than cut guys. So yea, it was awesome.
That’s great! I’m glad you both enjoyed it. Having a frenulum and a glans that hasn’t been desensitized really does make a huge difference in oral sex!
Sure thing. I do have a general post about penile hygiene here, but it’s pretty old and could probably benefit from a rewrite/update, so I’ll try to work on that soon.
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 :)
