Frenulum stretching post-frenuloplasty (plus illustration)

Hi Jim & Paul.

Seeing as I don't have a camera, thought I'd be different and draw my condition. As you can see, I had a frenuloplasty 7 months ago. It was a simple and it helped a lot but I'm still too tight. The surgeon who tweaked me made no measurements beforehand and I felt unable to insist for them - he said he had performed hundreds before.

(sorry for the different side-views. It's harder than you'd think to draw your own penis.)

- Frenulum questions -

Prior to the op, my frenulum was thick, tough and white, like gristle. It is now flexible enough to make stretching worth a go, but I'm having some trouble with the two frenulum methods.

With the forward-pulling method my fingers slip out immediately - I can't seem to get a grip on the frenulum itself. When my grip stabilises I feel no tension on the frenulum - only on the 'spout'.

If I retract and then directly pull on the frenulum itself, it stings for the whole day. I'm sure direct pressure is more effective, but should I persevere if there's discomfort?

- Phimosis -

As for phimosis, I had very slow progress with stretching until I started cramming all my fingers in - I see that's been suggested here recently. When I first put 4 fingers in I immediately felt the tension I hadn't been generating before, so please recommend this to others. I'm seeing improvement already after 4 weeks.

- One more question -

If I was fine for sex in my natural state (as I always have suspected) - why are we so driven to stretch and why do you recommend it? I'm 22 and a virgin, but I've had no problem masturbating these last 10 years. Apart from pure curiosity I've been doing this to gain as mobile a penis as possible for my future partners' sakes - but I don't know if that even makes sense. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

- Masturbation -

Finally, I suspect my progress will be slower because I'm abstaining from masturbation. Through experience I have gradually realised that daily/twice-daily orgasm gives me a hangover of sorts, with effects ranging from 'brain fog' to irritability and depression. I link to this in case it interests others --- I quit masturbation 30 days ago and since then I've felt more mental clarity and emotional stability than I have in the past 8 years. I would never have suspected masturbation could be so capricious before I cut it out - I have no religious background and assumed it was natural to ejaculate whenever one felt the urge - but 'possible' and 'natural' are different things.



Thanks for all your dedication here. If you require more details, please say.
