Restoration or Renaissance?
Last updated on 25th April 2003It has taken me years of dedicated stretching, taping and tugging to have restored a fully covered glans (when flaccid), The journey has been long and frustrating with still more steps to go, but the confidence I feel has exceeded all expectations!
Feeling happier about my masculinity after years of being burdened with a sense of mutilation, embarrassment and shame borders on sheer exultation. I am finally released from the shackles of inhibition, covering up, concealment, inadequacy and enforced modesty. Uncircumcising is both a psychological renaissance and a physical affirmation of complete manhood.
Over the months of partial and total cover, my glans surface has become more, membranous, moist, and of much greater sensitivity. The unsightly coronal flare is much reduced, appearing less "threatening" when erect, and not so pronounced through briefs and swimwear. In addition the glans colour has changed, paling from a bluish to light pink tinged with a slight whitish grey.
The change has had a great effect on many activities. Many aspects of 'ing' have gone from minus to an acceptable plus!
The appearance of the restored penis is in the likeness of the intact, uncircumcised version - manhood complete! But complete? Depending on the extent and technique of the original circumcision, up to 2000 nerve endings are excised with the foreskin and frenulum. These are lost forever, beyond restoration. In terms of erotic potential, this will vary on how much foreskin was excised, compared to shades of colour blindness. Some restorations may come closer to the feelings experienced by a natural foreskin than others, but the gap will always remain considerable. Those with a retained frenulum are particularly blessed with its rich source of nerve endings.
Despite being radically circumcised and having no trace of frenulum, the maximised disadvantage has been mostly overcome through the healing process of restoration. Though I'll never be able to get the ultimate mind blowing stimulation available to those lucky to have retained their complete foreskin, I have the satisfaction of providing myself with the very best substitute possible through sheer effort and the guidance of NORM. Not for me the stunted monochrome imposed with a ragged circumcision scar, but
at least some colour.
I did not write "Restoration or Renaissance" for the many thousands of men who are either happily circumcised or 'accepting the status without regret. It is a sincere reaching out to those suffering in consequence of having been circumcised, unaware that something can be done, and isolated by their disfigurement. Had I read the article at the age of thirteen, I would have spared myself decades of feeling mutilated - as my penis certainly was! I wandered in the desert of despondency for forty years before realising that restoration was possible and achievable. May these few words help prevent that happening to others.
