Posted on Fri, 24 Feb 2017
Question: Hi, I have a question hopefully one of you can answer, it's about my private region I'm male 21 years old. From when I started masterbating I've noticed white scares around the foreskin, when me and my girlfriend have sex it sometimes rips and bleeds a little, but it's not just that when my penis gets erect it hurts to move the foreskin to and I loose my erection any advice would be grateful for that but also it's made my girlfriend think she's unattractive and disgusting but I'm reassuring her that's not the case but she thinks this is just a lie when it's not
