    So I've just entered my first relationship it's been going a few weeks and everything is going well. We've started being sexually active but I'm a bit confused about something .. So I've been doing some online searching and I'm pretty sure he isn't circumcised - which is a good thing right? But when he gets an erection and he comes the glans(?) doesn't become exposed - he has noticed this isn't normal himself and is really self conscious about it. Firstly is this normal? And secondly how do I reassure him that it's all ok (if it is?) He doesn't complain of pain and he ejaculates fine it takes upto 20 mins but apart from that everything seems Ok, just the appearance of it I suppose?

    Your penis is normal.

    Can he pull his foreskin back over the glans ('head') when it's erect or not?

    It often doesn't go back without help when erect, but if he can't do it, his life will be happier if he sees his GP or talks to a sexual health clinic. As well as making it hard to clean his penis properly, he's also missing out on some pleasure.

    There are about a thousand threads here on this which you may or may not want to read, but doing a search for 'foreskin' will find many of them.

    If it can still be pulled back manually then this is normal

    If not then its potentially a problem... though if it can be pulled back fully when flaccid but not erect and isn't causing any other problems then its really a matter of choice whether he sees a dr or not
