Either way, you need professional exam and probably STD testing. Good luck! ...Read more
Who says they are?: There is no evidence that penises are larger if not circumcised. This organ varies widely in size, hence many social myths based on cultural belief systems.

One's doctor can help if a guy did not get his foreskin to loosen during puberty. ...Read more
