Here are some...: Of no choice, all men have to adjust the frequency of their personal care to their individual need because the pace of smegma production widely varies among men; so does cleansing smegma.

Hmmm....: Frenulums, whether on a lip, a tongue, or a penis, are supposed to stay attached from birth to death. If there has been some trauma or accident, a frenulum can tear (but a torn frenulum usually causes no disability nor problems).
