I am 18 and my erect penis is about 6 inches long and 5 inches in circumference. I am not circumcised, and it is only recently that I learned that the foreskin has to be completely removed for smooth sex and also that it is natural, but I find that my foreskin is in some way connected to the slit of my urethra. Also, my foreskin is too tight to be removed until the glans. Is this a deformity and what is the remedy?
The foreskin should not connect to the glans. There is a strip that connects at the frenulum, but notice in the picture that the glans is free and the connection is not at the opening of the urethra.
You can try stretches to see if you can encourage the skin to disconnect from the glans. See:
- The skin on my penis doesn’t pull back all the way to release the tip of the penis.
- I can pull my foreskin back, but when it is pulled back it is really tight
If that doesn’t work, you can see a urologist to see if it can be disconnected surgically. You would not need a circumcision, only a snip to disconnect the foreskin from the glans.
