I was circumcised about one and a half weeks ago to treat phimosis (tight foreskin) as it would not retract over the glans and was sometimes painful during sex. I am worried as my glans has never been exposed before and so this is the first time I have ever felt what it feels like to touch directly. So far it has just been painful, when rubbing against boxers and when touched by my hand. I'm sure the feeling of friction against your glans should be pleasurable but I have yet to feel any feelings even close to pleasurable. I hope someone can reassure me and tell me that soon touching my glans and sex will be pleasurable because at the moment I'm feeling pretty regretful about having the operation as the position I'm in now seems alot worse than before.
A friend of mine who, like yourself, was recently circumcised for phimosis also experienced the same problem, with over-sensitivity and irritation of the glans.
He tried a number of different pain-killers, loose shorts, etc. and nothing seemed to work.
What he did try, however, was using a condom.
I know this sounds unorthodox (and believe me, his urologist was completely over-whelmed with amusement upon hearing this); the fact that the glans was covered for most of the day (save for urinating), allowed his penis the opportunity it needed to heal.
Six weeks later, he is slowly resuming sexual activity, albeit just masturbating for now.
If you were wondering how to keep a condom on the penis, while flaccid, just use some surgical Micropore tape to secure the rubber to the base of your shaft.
For anyone whos interested just thought I'd give you a little update. My operation was just over two weeks ago and I am now alot more comfortable. I can walk reasonably comfortably now with normal clothing on. Also, I had sex again for the first time yesterday and it was fine. The scar hurt abit but the glans felt excellent, as in I didnt last very long , but obviously I will last longer as I get more used to it etc. Just wanted to let people know that have just had this operation that things do get better. I was really worried and really regretting having the operation about a week ago but now I'm glad I had it done, and things are only going to get better
