One for the boys
To avoid any delicacy at all are the skins running shorts comfortable for the well endowed?
Also is there anywhere that sells them in the UK... £9 delivery for a £35 pair of pants seems a bit of a cheek!
We did ring the surgery but while we would not be at the bottom of the list it would sadly take some time and risk falling too close to the summer holidays.
Thanks everyone for the good advice.
John Lewis website and free delivery on orders over £30 and no I do not work for them.

how much did he pay you to post that?
Step into my office - I'll chop em all off for free....
Alice, having had to suffer this in the past, took me three weeks to get back into doing any real speedwork. The rubbing was a "wee" bit painful to say the least. Dont need Skins, just go for some tight fitting briefs and a pair of shorts. If it is any consolation, I was churning out PB's about 6 months afterwards, don't know if there was a direct correlation and don't suggest you other guys go for the op on that premise (bloody painful aftercare .
Thanks MG, I knew someone would have direct experience, rubbing against a no doubt highly sensitive and stitched glans was the major worry.
Hold the scalpel there are alternatives...
You don't say why he needs it doing, but I think it's worth reading this link. It's his decision, but it's a painful operation and as a consequence of the glans being permanently exposed it will become desensitised over time. Can't see masturbation being as much fun either!!
I have no connection with the website, just have friends who have been through the operation (as babies/children and adults) and wish that they hadn't.
True phimosis Im afraid and he's one of the 2% for whom steroidal creams did not work, the doctors were very good and did explore every alternative (after pushing) and we were willing to pay and go private in order to get the non-circumcision procedure but the consultant believed that this would not work in our case either.
Odds of 7 in 10,000 of phimosis sufferers need surgery and he is one of them, It really is rather depressing especially when we know all the risks and the inevitability of even the best outcome.
I'm sorry. I hope the operation goes okay and that that you both get fantastic times in the Marathon
I didn't want to seem like I was interfering, just wanted to make sure you knew the alternative, as many don't...
Im really glad you put the website up, finding the information tool a long time and this includes everything.
You are right that most dont, had we not looked at the information then they would have went ahead and performed a circumcision without trying anything less damaging first.
If I ever see another topic like this one I'll be putting your site on it, thanks Anonymous one as it really was appreciated I promise.
well thank god he never went through with it. he would have been uncomfortable for years, possibly the rest of his life until he lost a bunch of sensation on the head of his penis. most people don't know how mutilating circumcision really is.
Errr.... we of the intact variety can guess thanks
issac.he did go ahead with it.had no choice according to his partner.......
It's just a piece of skin, any skin can be stretched given enough time.
