“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.  “



Circumcised Vs. Autocircumcised

The practice of autocircumcision  has all the advantages of circumcision without actually having the operation.


Achieving the circumcised appearance without surgery

“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.”

Auto-circumcision (permanent foreskin retraction) as an alternative to circumcision

Keeping the foreskin continuously rolled back

What if you want the foreskin permanently back?

Fairly simple, pull your skin back behind the rim and leave it there. Keep an eye on it to see if it starts to swell, if it does make sure that the glans end of your penis is nice and pink and getting a good blood supply. If your end starts to turn color or get darker in color, indicating that the blood supply to your glans is being restricted then push your skin back over your glans and let everything adjust. You will probably have to carefully apply pressure to your glans and squeeze all the blood and fluid back into our penis in order to get the skin back over the head. It will take a little time and effort to get the fluid out of the head and make it smaller, then when you get the head or glans reduced in size the skin should slide back over the glans. This will only happen if your skin has a very small opening and it is also very hard to pull it back . If you are fortunate and that the skin will stay behind the rim and not slide back over the glans, and also not cut off the circulation to your glans, then just leave it back, get use to the head being uncovered, it will peel like a sunburn and then adjust to being out in the open. Your inner skin will swell some but in a short period of time it will also adjust and then you will be autocircumcised. Best of both worlds. If you have not reached puberty then now is the idea time to start this skin retraction. As you pass through puberty, you penis will grow to its final stages of size and the skin will not and will become very short and stay retracted for the rest of your life. Enjoy it.
