A 18-year-old male asked:
Tight foreskin. can be pulled 3/4 down the head just too tight to fully expose the head. when flaccid the foreskin can easily be pulled back and forth completely. can urinate and complete sexual activities fine, just want to be able to fully retract?

Lubricate your foreskin well with baby oil and gently pull it as far back as possible . make sure to pull it forward again. Do this daily and in a week or two it will become more supple and fully retractable. If not there is no harm in staying the way you are as you have no problems with it. Last choice is a circumcision.
