Thanks for your query.

The average penis size in erection is 5 inches.Anything lesser than 3 inches in erection would be a matter of concern needing penis enlargement techniques.

As in you 8 inches is good than normal and there would be no need to worry or for any enlargement techniques.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi again,

Thanks for writing back.

Based on your description I suspect it to be Phimosis what you suffering from.

Yes, there methods other than Circumcision to treat phimosis.

Glansie, which is a device available in market which which phimosis can be cured.The tip of the Glansie is inserted in the opening in the foreskin. By squeezing the handles the foreskin is gradually stretched until it can be retracted properly.
This is a conservative method and does not involve any surgical technique.

Hope I answered all your questions. Please use any answer clarification before closing and rating this answer. I will be happy to explain or expand on any issue you may have.
