Just wanted to post a thank-you for maintaining a great forum.
This is the first place I have found that gives me some kind of hope that I wont need any kind of surgery.
I am 25 and not sexually active (virgin).
I have a short frenulum.
I am starting from the point of being able to fully retract my foreskin while flaccid, but with deformation of the head.
While erect I can pull my foreskin fully over the head, but no further down the shaft.
I will continue to work my way through the posts here, while working on the stretching.
And I will hopefully keep you updated on my progress.
is indeed, to start. And once you start, keep going.
We would not advise you to seek out sexual contacts without a good relationship (and preferably, marriage) as a basis. Nevertheless it is extremely important that you do not see this as in any manner, shape or form, a deterrent to developing a relationship - it simply is not. It does not prevent you from having any "normal" form of sex (and oral sex is "normal", by the way).
Therefore, the concept of a "need" for surgery - is absurd.
And thanks to my reading of this forum

I have more confidence in my own ability to have sex.
I have been worrying about it for some time now, that I would be unable to manage because of this issue.
And I now realise I shouldn't have been so concerned, and really, had I thought about it a bit more, I would have realised that any woman that I would consider sexual relations with, would be understanding of any issue anyway!
It has always been in the back of my mind, that this issue would stop me having any kind of 'normal' relationship, and it is great that this forum exists, not only for helping with the physical issues, but also for the frank and open discussions about sex (I'm sure like most men I have gotten a lot of my knowledge of sex from porn and 'pub discussions').
Also the psychological benefit of knowing that you are not alone with the problem, and with the thoughts and feelings that go with it.
