currently restoring right now. I just use manual methods as I don't have the money or patience for devices. I've been doing it for around 3 months and I am definitely noticing a difference. my glans is now semi-covered and the glans has started to become shinier and more sensitive. I would recommend it if you have the patience.
>>25576356 They cut off usually all of the parts of the penis that have the most nerves (thankfully I still have part of my frenulum and ridged band) and then the glans dry out and completely lose sensation. Hence why in American porn you will see a girl destroying the guy's dick but he hardly reacts to it. If you grow new skin to cover the glans it will eventually make them sensitive again.
>>25576784 I blame the American school system. From what Americans have told me, in sex ED they show comparison of a flaccid uncut penis to a cut penis. They speak nothing about how it looks while erect, that the glans gets exposed, etc
So that's when people assume all uncut cocks are phimosis cocks.
>>25576905 What? They don't even tell us about uncut dicks in school, they hardly even tell us about dicks at all. I didn't find out what they were till I was 16. But yeah it's because Americans are retarded and willingly cut their sons.

Partially they cut them because of "cultural reasons", another reason is that it is supposed to have health benefits which is a bunch of rubbish, and finally they sell the foreskins off for the fibroplasts in use of cosmetics for women.
>>25576911 Orgasms are the technically same but the penis is more sensitive. You might have stronger orgasms on the basis of you being more stimulated by the time you cum. But it also means blowjobs, handjobs, anything touching the tip of your dick will feel really good.
>>25578042 >went bald at 18 Sucks, but Patrick Stewart has you bro. Shaved heads can be pulled off. >manlet Only a serious problem on 4chan because of memes, women don't usually care because women are short. Just get /fit/, manlets can get /fit/ easy. >cut You can restore that shit, man. It takes time, but what else are you going to do for the next two years? Be misable? >acne You can fix this. >pale and cant tan Good. >cant grow beard Shave.
>>25579006 Yes, but if you don't feel like it there is another option. Buy some of those silicon scar sheets, put them on your glans with some lotion and keep them on 24/7. You may want to wear a manhood or something else tight to keep them on. This should not only dekeratinize the glans but also get rid of any cracks that may have formed. Just be sure to wear something afterwards so it doesn't keratinize again.
>>25579350 I have never had a women, man or trap ever comment on my penis being cut and being uncut dosnt make your dick anymore better looking.....you just have to scrap the dick cheese out of it if you go with out a shower for more then a day.
Foreskin "restoration" is a misnomer. It doesn't actually recreate a real foreskin. At best it gives you an imitation.
"Glans re-covering" would be a better name for it.
The main reason circumcision is so damaging is that it destroys the ridged band, the main pleasure zone of the penis.
A lot of "restorers" go on about re-gains in glans sensitivity, but I hardly see how that could be all that beneficial. The glans is protopathic and it's primarily sensitive to pain, not pleasure.
I suppose it could be helpful if your circumcision was so tight that it hurts to fap or get erections though.
Some have suggested that the improved experience of sex and masturbation glans re-coverers experience could be due to allowing the few remaining tactile corpuscles in the residual foreskin to experience stretch (Taylor suggested that the tactile corpuscles in the foreskin, especially the ridged band, might be adapted specially to detect gentle stretches and cause the brain to perceive that stretching as sexually pleasurable).
So, I'm not saying it's useless. Just that it doesn't really "restore" an actual "foreskin", and that making the glans more sensitive really doesn't seem like that great a thing. The glans is barely erogenous to begin with. It's a lot easier to make it hurt than to make it feel good. Pain-sensing nerve endings (nocioceptors) in the glans outnumber encapsulated end organs by ten to one, and the main encapsulated end organs in the glans are "genital end bulbs". The scientific literature is sketchy on what those do, but there's no evidence that those end bulbs function in any way like tactile corpuscles, which are very seldom found in the glans (in fact, some biologists dissecting the glans didn't find any tactile corpuscles, though others found a few).
Anyway, if you're interested in doing it would probably be wiser to talk to a knowledgeable doctor about it before just jumping in and trying it oneself. You wouldn't want to accidentally get hurt.
But the foreskin's ridged band is primary erogenous tissue. This has been confirmed by histological analysis showing that the ridged band of the foreskin is densely innervated with specialized sensory end organs, including tactile corpuscles. In fact, those are the main specialized sensory end organ in the ridged band.
>>25579575 I don't give a fuck about what women think of my dick. I do give a fuck that it's uncomfortable as fuck to fap and annoying as all hell that my glans rubs my underwear 24/7. Don't restore because you think women find uncut dicks attractive.
>>25579743 I didn't say anything about knowing how a foreskin feels, you fucking retard. I'm cut tight so restoring would give me slack skin so it's not such a pain to fap. If I can get skin over my glans I can stop it from rubbing on underwear.
In conventional circumcision (as it is practiced commonly in North America and in Islamic and Jewish cultures), the ridged band is cut off. The frenular delta and frenulum are commonly cut off too--sometimes partially, sometimes entirely.
The foreskin isn't just "some skin at the end of the penis". It's primary erogenous tissue, in and of itself. Amputation of the foreskin removes many of the specialized sensory end organs in the penis.
>The only portion of the body with less fine-touch discrimination than the glans penis is the heel of the foot . In contrast, the male prepuce ridged band (Fig. 7) at the mucocutaneous junction has a high concentration of encapsulated receptors . The innervation difference between the protopathic sensitivity of the glans penis and the corpuscular receptor-rich ridged band of the prepuce is part of the normal complement of penile erogenous tissue.
>Surgical amputation of the prepuce removes many of the fine-touch corpuscular receptors from the penis and clitoris. In males, circumcision is essentially a partial penile mucosectomy. The residual exposed glans mucosa becomes abnormally keratinized with an increase in the number of cell layers in glanular mucosal epithelium. The urethral meatus is exposed and prone to irritation. Meatal stenosis can be a complication after circumcision. During circumcision, the frenular artery may also be ablated, depriving the anterior urethra of its major blood supply. The combined effect of urethral ischaemia and irritation results in the development of meatal stenosis in 5-10% of circumcised males [25,83-86]. The risk of glanular injury when tearing the fused penile mucosa, and the development of meatal stenosis, makes circumcision in the newborn period inadvisable [87-89].

By the way guys, there is an organization currently working on REAL foreskin "restoration', or more specifically foreskin regeneration. It's called Foregen.
This idea makes a lot more sense than trying to tug your remaining shaft skin to create a pseudo-foreskin via tissue expansion.
The very word "foreskin" is somewhat of a misnomer because it's not just skin. It's a complex structure made up of different kinds of tissues, including muscle. A restored 'fauxskin' is nowhere near the same thing as a real foreskin--but one created by regenerative medicine might be.
We don't really know whether having re-covered the glans by tissue expansion might actually make it harder to regenerate a real foreskin (if and when that becomes possible).
>>25580041 >being a balding manlet after 30 is the same as being a tallfag with lush hair The two don't even compare. Call it whatever you want, but your post is still divorced from reality to the point of retardation.
>Yes, for 4 years I've used 4 or 5 different methods. I started with tape, then bought a CAT 2 Q stretcher a few months into restoring (which I still use occasionally). A couple years ago I bought a HypeRestore inflation device and am very happy with it. Manual tugging is also very important; I've done it the whole time I've restored. Next I want to try weights to grow more outer skin. I tried using the spray adhesive and strongly discourage that avenue. If you are interested, I started at a CI-2 and am now a CI-4. In terms of pleasure there has been a world of difference. Masturbation is alot easier and much more satisfying, so much that I only masturbate once or twice a week now as opposed to once or twice a day trying to chase the high I could never get with a cut cock. >Yes it works, but for most people the process is very slow. I see myself restoring for at least another 3-4 years. I'm 29 now.
>>25576981 I've never understood why people need to see proven "studies" to know that cutting off part of someone's (usually an infant's) genitals is a bad idea. I mean shit, it should be obvious if you just think about it for a minute.
>>25576106 yes but haven't made progress in at least 6 months shoot me in the fucking face REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE who the FUCK ATHOUGH THIS WAS EVER A GOOD IDEA WHAT THE FUCK MUTILATED MY DICK
>>25580829 Circumcision is so fucking weird. The fact that we have to go to lengths to prove why it's bad is crazy, when nobody is giving any solid evidence to prove why we should ever do it in the first place.
>>25581464 You can make a foreskin longer, but you're fundamentally mistaken. A circumcised person has no foreskin anymore. All he's doing is regrowing skin still present to make a facsimile of a foreskin. A "fauxskin", if you will. If you had an important part of your body amputated, you'd go to ridiculous lengths too to restore what you have lost.
>>25576106 Don't want to regrow but this contraption looks like it'd be a great help with my poking grower. It's so bothersome to have it poke out in jeans or a bathing suit, this would solve all my self conscious problems about it
Some people say that circumcision is a good way to prevent penile cancer.
According to the American Cancer Society, it would take 900 infant circumcisions to prevent ONE of those boys from growing up to develop penis cancer.
It's absolutely insane. Penis cancer is one of the rarest of all cancers. It would make more mathematical sense to prophylacticly do mastectomies on baby girls. But everyone would regard that as stupid as fuck.
The foreskin is an integral, functional, erogenous part of the penis. Cutting it off because there's a tiny chance it could get cancer 50 years from now is about as ludicrous as it gets.
>>25576106 Been restoring with the manual method for around 2 years. I have made a load of progress but I'm not quite at the point where I feel I should stop just yet. When I'm flaccid, my whole glans except maybe a penny sized portion toward the urethra is covered. It's awesome. My orgasms are much better, I can feel loads more etc. I'd go into more detail but I'm sleepy as fuck. Basically, you just apply tension to the skin below the circumcision scar to lengthen it over time. Mitosis, the same process at work any time your cells replicate. Tension triggers this.
Make an okay sign with your hands, grasp your dick below the scar, tighten and pull, preferabely while hard. Don't squeeze so hard that your dick hurts, but apply enough pressure to have a good tension on the skin. Do this for 30 seconds like 4-7 times everytime you fap and you'll start seeing progress soon.
Anecdotally, some guys have mentioned that "retaining" with the other hand helps prevent the tension from going to the tunica albuginea. You don't want to tension the tunica because there's no point, and if you tear it it could cause internal scarring.
Also, some guys might have a hard time even locating their circumcision scar. It can be buried in the sulcus if you got a "beauty cut" circumcision--in which case you have basically no inner foreskin, and shouldn't try to tension what tiny bit of inner foreskin you do have (it's usually like 1mm or less) because that tiny bit is pretty much fused to the glans/sulcus, and trying to tug it could cause an injury.
Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, if you want to try and re-cover your glans, you probably should consult one who knows about this and can offer you advice tailored to your needs.
