“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.
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
“I became obsessed with the idea that my boyfriend should be circumcised. We were very happy together, and much in common, and best of all we were very compatible in bed. But I refused to get married until he was circumcised — and he gave in. That little operation completely destroyed our life together. Before he had fabulous staying power, but after the operation he would have an orgasm in five minutes and leave me high and dry. To make things worse, sex became very painful to me. Twice I had to see a doctor due to minor infections from the chafing. Our beautiful sexual togetherness became a nightmare of staying creams, lubricants and frustrations. He says he will never forgive me, and we no longer speak to each other…but I cannot forget what a stupid mistake I made which altered the life of a lovely person.”
