hi im a 15yr old male and ive learned that guys
are suspose to clean their "private area" by pulling back the foreskin (if uncircumsised) and rinsing with water, my concern is, what if u cant pull the foreskin all the way back, i have trouble and its starts to hurt when i go a certain amount of length, is this natural, or is this irregular.

I belive I read once that the foreskin isn't ready to be fully pulled back until your around 18, or at least until it can be moved without any pain. If there is pain it hasn't fully seperated from the head yet (when your born, I think it's attached). I guess for cleaning your just wash as best you can until it can fully push it back. But best you wait for a few more replies on this topic, I am only going by what I've heard.

Yes, you are supposed to. Well, I do at least, but I can pull mine all the way back.

My doctors told me that I should do it to keep it clean, so I guess you should try to pull it back as much as you can without it hurting and wash it
