How And Why To Regrow Your Foreskin



  • Desensitizing the head of the penis can reduce discomfort during exercises. Retract your foreskin and expose the head of the penis for a few minutes at a time, which will decrease sensitivity. This can be done a few times a day.[22]

How to Regrow Foreskin Naturally

Nonsurgical foreskin restoration techniques involve manually pulling and holding the remnants of your foreskin over your penis for a certain amount of time per day.

Doing this over time results in gradual tissue expansion, taking advantage of your body’s natural elasticity to grow your foreskin until it becomes large enough to cover your glans (or larger, if you prefer).

This can be done when either flaccid or erect, though if you are partially erect, you may get better results.

#1 With your Hands

You can get started with foreskin restoration today by simply pulling your skin over your penis and holding it that way for a certain length of time each day, such as ten or fifteen minutes.

However, this method is cumbersome, requiring you to physically hold your penile skin in place, during which you can’t do anything else. For more efficient foreskin restoration, you’ll need a more advanced technique.

#2 Using a Device

Several devices have been invented that automatically stretch the skin over the penis, allowing you to continue on with your day while your foreskin is restored on its own. One of the most famous is the TLC Tugger, a small device made from stainless steel and silicone.

A simple device, but very popular (DUP).

The TLC Tugger physically pulls the penile skin over the glans of the penis without requiring you to physically hold it in place, though you must remove the device before urinating or having sex.

The inventor of the TLC Tugger, Ron Low, claims that using the device over the course of a year allowed his foreskin to grow by nearly an inch.

Another foreskin restoration device is the PUD (Penile Uncircumcising Device), which functions similarly to the TLC Tugger, stretching the skin over the glans without requiring the user to hold it down manually.

Unlike the Tugger, the PUD is designed to resemble a glans head and includes an opening, allowing the user to urinate without removing the device.

The dual-tension restorer (DTR) is another commonly-used foreskin restoration device. Unlike the Tugger and PUD, the DTR uses tugging rather than pulling, taking advantage of natural elasticity to grow the foreskin. These and other devices can be purchased online from various retailers.

What Foreskin Owners Should Watch out For

There are a couple of medical conditions specific to foreskin owners. Infections are somewhat common, and can often be confused with sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Posthitis is an infection that creates redness, swelling, and discharge. Balanoposthitis is accompanied by inflammation and irritation. Both have the tendency to recur, and can lead to serious complications. TL;DR: wash your foreskin, and see your doctor right away if you notice redness, irritation, or a change in discharge!

Foreskins can also get caught in zippers a little more easily than circumcised penises, so make sure to exert extra caution when closing your barn door, especially if you’re a fan of freeballing.

Phimosis is another foreskin-specific condition. It occurs when the foreskin is especially tight. If you remember from the first section of this article, boys are born with attached foreskins that loosen over time, but about 5% end up developing phimosis. If you’re the owner of a penis and know for certain that you don’t have phimosis, I suggest skipping the rest of this paragraph. We’re about to get really graphic, and we don’t want you cupping your junk in sympathy-induced pain. Phimosis can lead to a whole host of problems. If you’re not able to retract your foreskin, you can’t clean it, meaning you’re more likely to get infections. You can also get urine trapped in there when you’re trying to relieve yourself. In severe cases of phimosis, getting an erection can be painful, and can even cause tearing and bleeding in the foreskin itself.

Fortunately, there are treatments for phimosis. It’s important to work with a doctor, who may prescribe you a steroid cream to help loosen the skin. He or she may also recommend a manual stretching routine (don’t attempt this without medical supervision!), which should help gradually loosen up the skin over time. In the most extreme cases, adult circumcision may be necessary, but this is rare.

Finally, let’s round it out with Paraphimosis. This condition occurs when the foreskin gets stuck in a retracted position (you may want to avert your eyes here again), essentially choking the penis and cutting off circulation. In some cases, it can require emergency intervention. Sometimes men with Phimosis (too-tight foreskin) can get overly-aggressive with their foreskin-stretching routines, leading to a case of Paraphimosis.
