A few weeks ago I decided to begin the process to restore my foreskin. I was cut as an infant and really don’t like that I didn’t have a say in the matter. Yes, it was a different time and infant circumcision was routine in the US then. I certainly don’t fault my parents; they did what they felt was best at the time. Nevertheless, I do feel a sense of loss that an important part of my body was taken with no reason.
Foreskin restoration essentially stretches the skin and, over time, the stretched skin expands. It’s a very long process that often takes years. I bought myself a restoration device as a birthday present and have been using it for several weeks.
I’m really noticing results; I’ve always have loose skin, but now the skin is covering the corona most of the time now. Generally I’m staying about 25-33% covered. The color and texture of my glans is changing too! It’s hard to see in the photo, but the part that is regularly covered is brighter and shinier than where there’s no covering.
I’m noticing the feeling of coverage during the course of the day. I have to say the feeling of being covered feels very comforting and safe. It’s kind of a strange feeling, but I really do notice when I’m covered and it feels good!
My motivation for restoring is to restore sensitivity. I strongly feel that removing a part of our anatomy without medical need or consent is completely wrong. I want to feel what nature intended and I’m really motivated that I’m seeing and feeling progress!
The most amazing thing is that I’m noticing significantly increased sensitivity when masturbating! I am very aware of a ring around the base of my glans that is especially pleasurable.
I’m loving what I’m noticing so far! Restoringforeskin.org is a great resource if you want to find out more about this.
