Question

Is it okay if I keep my foreskin retracted all the time? Will there be any problems if I do so?


Answer

Getting the foreskin to stay back so the glans remains exposed is not a good thing to do. The medical term for this is paraphimosis. The foreskin swells and pinches off the blood supply; thus, causing pain, especially when trying to have sex. It is considered a medical emergency because the damage can be permanent.
