Find out how the male foreskin actually functions and what it does.
Got a problem that you think might require a circumcision? It probably doesn't. Take a look at our conservative treatments and clinical guidelines for phimosis (tightness of the foreskin) or order some additional reading from our online shop.
Circumcised men have a wide range of opinions about their status. Some say they like it, some say they don't mind and others hate it. So who's right and who's wrong? Or is that really the issue?
For circumcised men who want to try to regain what they have lost, non-surgical restoration techniques can, in time, provide the look and some of the functions of an intact foreskin. Men who have achieved even partial restoration report significant improvements in their sex lives.
