Hello Kapil,

Most adult videos which are made by commercial adult video makers use a lot of organ enhancement methods, which are most of the time unrealistic. Hence you need not worry too much about what you see and feel inadequate.

The normal prepuce ( skin like covering of the glans penis), is usually mobile and can be pulled back to varying extent. In case, you are not able to retract the prepuce even to a little extent or it results in pain, or discomfort , you may be having a condition called PHIMOSIS. This is a very benign condition and may be treated with a minor surgical procedure called circumcision, where a small incision is made in the prepuce, increasing its mobility.

You might consult a urologist or a general surgeon, who might examine you and guide you accordingly.

Hey Kapil.What you see in videos is post circumcision.Hindus do not have this culture so you may be tempted to think that you are abnormal.In case your problem persists, you will need a minor surgery and you will be discharged within one hour from the hospital after circumcision.

Hi doctor, My name is Satyanarayana and I m 28 years old...Recently, I have participated in sex with a girl who washed my penis before sex and at that time she pulled my foreskin backwards.... I have never tried to pull my foreskin backwards in the past, so this is my first incident. I got a little bit of pain and after wearing the condom I have completed my sex... The main thing is after sexual participation my penis erect came back to normal, but my foreskin was folded like a thick ring at the tip.. the ringed foreskin is not going upwards or downwards... It is also very sensitive to touch both the skin and the tip. The foreskin and tip are both became red. What is the next step to do. Should I consult the doctor? please do the needful as I m mentally disturbed about this situation and unable to tell anyone. Please reply me as soon as possible. Regards, Satyanarayana
