“The practice of “autocircumcision” has gain popularity in recent years.
Contrary to what the name implies, autocircumcision is not some crazy practice of self-mutilation or medical cost-saving exercise of DIY for men who want to get rid of their own foreskin.
This is a practice of retracting and retaining the foreskin in a retracted state at all times to expose the glans penis.
This will make the penis appear like being circumcised, without the drawbacks.
Achieving an autocircumcision is not possible for all, as it requires some “training” and entirely dependent on individuals’ penile shape and size, length and the tightness of the foreskin, and tightness of the frenulum.
For men who find the retraction impossible, specific silicone glans rings are available to assist men for the training of retraction.
The practice of autocircumcision seems like harmless and has all the advantages of circumcision without actually having the operation. “
A lot of guys that aren’t circumcised, make the decision to keep the foreskin back permanently. I have started keeping my foreskin retracted 6 years ago. At the beginning the foreskin would go back over the glans and I had to pull it back again. I started to use the silicone glans ring to keep my foreskin retracted and it worked great. The glans has dried out a bit and has turned from pink to purple. It seems like the corona has widened a bit. I love the way it looks and feels. The penis is a lot cleaner, there is no smell anymore. I only pull it forward when I shower and clean my penis otherwise It is always retracted.
“I can only speak from my own experience: It’s possible to look circumcised by keeping your foreskin permanently retracted, but that’s entirely up to you. I, however, can highly recommend it, as I’ve kept my penis head permanently exposed for years. The foreskin will eventually get used to being permanently retracted and may even become shorter, as mine did. In fact, today if I try to cover my penis head with my foreskin, it rolls back behind the penis head by itself again! However, I like it that way! I can reassure you that your penis head won’t become insensitive at all, but will become more tolerable to touch and friction in a way that I’m sure you’ll find pleasurable. Sex ought to be wonderful for you and your partner. You may take a little longer to come, but then with explosive sensations and pleasure when you do.”
The practice of autocircumcision has all the advantages of circumcision without actually having the operation.
Autocircumcision is training your foreskin to stay behind the head of your penis.
Auto-circumcision the act of retracting the foreskin of the penis and keeping it retracted all the time so it appears to others to be circumcised.
Autocircumcision vs auto-circumcision
By wearing your foreskin permanently retracted (auto-circumcision), you get the advantages of circumcised and uncircumcised penises at the same time.
To achieve the circumcised look of your penis, wear the silicone glans ring 24/7. Fantastic result with minimal effort.
What happens during male circumcision?
Circumcision requires anesthesia, either local or general. The foreskin is then cut off and the remaining edges of the skin are stitched together. The penis is then bandaged. Men may be unable to walk for several days and should wear tight fitting briefs to keep the penis from moving. The procedure can be very painful, especially if erections occur in the days and weeks following surgery.
