I had penetrative sex for the first time since I was circumcised (and for the first time ever, actually) a few weeks ago. It was really, really great and there was absolutely no discomfort whatsoever. For me, this was the last step in my healing process, so I’m very excited about it. I’m also very excited about my new relationship, but that’s not what this blog is about.
I don’t have any pictures for you all, but I will try to describe the physical aspects of my healing up to now. The scar has softened a lot and loosened up a bit. It’s still pretty prominent, but the two people who have seen my penis up close since my surgery weren’t able to tell that I hadn’t been circumcised at birth. The inner foreskin that remains has also darkened somewhat and the head has become more purple (especially when I’m erect). Sometimes the scar is itchy, but it’s very minor and doesn’t happen very often. Some of the pinholes from the stitches remain as divets in my skin and probably will forever. However, they are hardly noticeable and I’m pretty sure that I only notice them because I see my penis daily.
In terms of sensitivity, I would say that things have pretty much stabilised. I was concerned with losing sensitivity as a result of circumcision, but I had no reason to worry, really. Things feel different for sure, but just as good. I’ve gotten over the learning curve associated with using lubricant for masturbation (little trick: saliva can make a little bit of lube go a loooong way) and I’ve even been able to masturbate without lube in a pinch.
The last healing piece (and it’s a pretty minor one) is the fact that I feel a lot more comfortable with my penis on display now. I used to avoid the showers at the gym because I didn’t want people seeing my weird junk, but now I’m completely alright with it. Also, I’ve gotten lots of compliments on how my penis looks. It’s not a huge deal for me, but it does feel nice to be unashamed of such a fundamental part of my body.
There probably won’t be any big reasons for me to update this blog for a while, but I can provide updates on request. Just drop me a comment with questions or whatever and I can try to address them. Of course, I am not a professional, so anything I say is based on personal experience/things I’ve read on the internet. You should always consult a doctor if you’re at all concerned with your junk. It’s your junk, after all.
Peace out for now!
