only if it starts to spray.

(Zaku does some anatomical research on Wikipedia. Whoa, learn something new every day.) I seem to have been circumcised some time near my birth, so I guess I don’t have such a thing to pull back.

@Zaku lolwut, you didn’t know what a foreskin is? Do they teach you anything at school?

@ragingloli Many years ago, yes, though I may have forgotten and I don’t remember pictures of a variety of penises to make it clear. I think when they told us, I thought of my own equipment and thought the term foreskin referred to the skin on the head of the penis. At any rate as an adult I ended up unsure whether I had been circumcised or not, and if that meant I had more or less skin than those who had. I thought maybe circumcised penises had peeled a layer off the head of the penis.

Well I do not have foreskin anymore so I can’t say for sure. But I imagine its the same as any other part of our body…. we’d rather not have pee on it…..

Because if you don’t pull back the foreskin (assuming you have some to pull back), urine sprays everywhere.

qualitycontrol's avatar

you mean pulling it back causes it to not spray? hmm I should try that, I’m tired of cleaning up after myself…

I’ve never seen a non-circed man pee. i just wanted to be the only female on the thread lol

1 it controls the spray, and focuses the stream.
2 prevents driping while going.
3 keeps other parts dry

@casheroo lol.

<<< Circ-dude.

I’d imagine that if you didn’t pull it back before peeing, you’d have to pull it back to clean up afterward. If you’re not cleaning up…eeewww!

would the foreskin maybe cover their piss hole?.....

sandystrachan's avatar

For those who do pull back . You still get drips when you put the foreskin back to normal position, do you then go wash it ? Because i dont pull back i wash it everytime i urinate !

I am so envious of guys with a foreskin, my idiot parents had mine removed when I was a baby due to some stupid religious covenant, and I’m not even frikken Jewish.

@evelyns_pet_zebra i don’t even miss mine anymore. i lost the turtleneck, but i got a lovely purple hat in exchange.

@Zaku
Umm…ok you’re just realizing you were circumcised now? Do you perform self flagellation after touching “it”, muttering
“I’m ok…I’m not a bad boy…I’m sorry Mommy…”

Zaku's avatar

@SeventhSense – Yes I was just then realizing that. But no, I don’t self-flagellate.

SeventhSense's avatar

@Zaku
Just kidding dude.

As per the question, I’m cut so the answer is no.
Sometimes this happens though.
