“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. “
“I am happy with retracted penis for more than 10 years and couldn’t want to live with it even for a second, now I am of 37.Being circumcised always fascinated me during my childhood as being a Hindu I can’t go for that so I tried it and it worked successfully…now I have what I desired.There is not any demerit in permanent retraction,actually it gave me more pleasure,my hamlet is now totally dry and keratinised but is not a problem for me as I stay longer during sex with my less sensitized love maker. Weathered penis-head is well able to withstand rough handling,rubbing and even pinching during fore play, I passionately enjoy it when my wife stroke my hamlet and shaft without any lubricant. There are many other benefits of it like hygiene and confident look when being nude before female partner.”
There are many men who’s mothers cared for their penises properly when they were babies, and they are naturally circumcised. You cannot tell they have not been surgically circumcised, unless they deliberately pull the foreskin down over the gland. Many of them “wear it back” all the time, and women never even know they were not circumcised.
Silicone glans ring is a simple, comfortable and very efficient device for the continuous foreskin retraction.
“Most find it uncomfortable and oversensitive initially and it takes about 3-4 weeks for the hypersensitivity to settle down as keratinization occurs. Once this has been achieved, few wish to revert to their previous mode of wearing the foreskin down.”
