Grow Your Own Foreskin

Oct 22, 2008 / Filed in Foreskin, Sex / 10 Comments

I have a lot to say about this topic and this is just the beginning.

When I was born, my parents had me circumcised, and I resent their decision. It’s my body, and I should have been given the choice myself.

In 2000, I first heard about the concept of foreskin restoration. There are dozens of ways to accomplish it, but the end result is the same — you can regrow your own foreskin without surgery.

If you’re lucky, your circumcised penis still has a bit of the foreskin left to pull on. This allows it to stretch and expand when you have erections. This loose skin can be pulled forward easily and without pain. I think of it as a stretching exercise.

When you stretch the skin out, you expand the skin cells. New cells have to recoup and fill up the stretched space. By doing this continuously over time, more skin is grown until you finally have enough to cover your penis. (I hope I explained that correctly. This is my understanding of it anyway.)

I have considered restoring my foreskin many times over the past 8 years. The main reason I wimped out was because I was afraid of all the myths I’d heard, like that foreskin is smelly and hard to keep clean. The logical part of me knows that’s not true. If you don’t clean your armpits, they stink. If you don’t clean your foreskin, it stinks too. But you wouldn’t cut out your armpits just because you had to keep them clean, now would you?

I finally decided to get serious about this process at the beginning of October. I started gently pulling the skin outward as far as I could without hurting myself. I did it a few times a day. 2 weeks later (last Friday) was the first time I really started noticing results because there was more loose skin on my penis. It wasn’t anything dramatic, but I know my penis pretty well. There was definitely more skin and the outer layer was stretchier.

People say that the stretching method (often referred to as “tugging”) can take years. But that’s okay, I’m still going to be around, so I might as well grow a foreskin while I’m at it.

I must admit the results are very exciting! I noticed today that the skin is even more stretchy, and I can pull it out further without any pain. The proof is real, I’m restoring my foreskin!

There are also products you can buy that apply continuous weight on the skin throughout the day. All of them work, and most of them have forums filled with success stories and photos of satisfied customers.

When I have enough skin, I may consider buying one of them to help me along. Right now, I actually really enjoy stretching the skin myself. It’s clearly working since I have noticed results in just a few weeks.

I will continue to report my progress on this. I realize photos of the progress would be helpful, but I don’t feel comfortable posting nude pics.

If you’re interesting in restoring your foreskin too, I recommend doing your research first. It’s important to do the process correctly and be gentle about it. If you pull too hard, you can damage the nerves.

  • Well, what does one say when you hear someone is growing a foreskin?? Good luck? Seriously, I this is great and look forward to hearing how it goes. I’ve thought about it but don’t know if I’d have the patience.

    And foreskins are totally hot!

  • So, did you know that my honey has been restoring his for a few years now? He’s done pretty damned well. He’s used the PUD device with some pretty good success. You should email him for advice and questions! We’ve got another friend who has used it too. Foreskin rocks! Wish I had mine.

  • I have been restoring as well for about 2.5 years. It is a slow process but well worth it. If you are ingenious, one can come up with alternatives to the more expensive devices sold as I have bought most, but use one of my own invention. I encourage all to explore and at least become inactivists by joining a local NORM group. National Organization of Restoring Men.
    KOT (keep on tugging)

  • Bravo! I agree with greg/Clayton that a support group is worthwhile, because you need patience, and they can give you the benefit of their experience.

    Some devices, such as the 35mm film canister, cost little or nothing. The TLC Tugger is well supported by someone who really believes in the cause. I know someone who could fool his doctor after 18 months using T-tape.

    The fact that men go to so much trouble to restore their own foreskins only underlines the injustice of infant circumcision.

  • my former lover had an ample foreskin, it was heaven ! i taught him how to dock, and made it a part of our lovemaking everytime, foreskins are the best , nothing like sliding your penis inside the foreskin of someone you love !

  • Good luck Nathan. I personally am restoring too, I’m using the DTR and CAT IIQ and am haveing good results. A good web site to visit is I hope we can get the word out there more about the damage that circumcision does.
    All the best,

  • Hello Nathan,
    It is always a pleasure to hear about another restorer. I hope you are still tugging and being rewarded with the results. I am four years into my restoration, but not yet done to my satisfaction.
    Best regards,
