Sometimes I think I take my foreskin for granted. I was reminded of this tonight when I was reading an article in Details about guys who are resorting to using foreskin-stretching devices and even surgery to try to get back at least a little of what man has taken away. More and more men want the joys of foreskin, some of which are in dispute (increased penile sensitivity and pleasure) and some of which are not (you know how easy it is to spank it?). How far are some willing to go to get their foreskin back? Well:
Other restorers jury-rig their own devices. Richard Baker, a 28-year-old network analyst who lives in suburban Dallas, is using a sanded-down PVC pipe with medical tape, S hooks, and elastic waistbands from boxer shorts. He expects to finish restoring in about two years.
I can't quite picture how this amateur contraption operates, but, if I could, I'm sure it would be frightening. But in the next paragraph:
Richard shares his progress online, posting photos on a website called restoreforeskin.org.
Oh, god, I don't think I can do it. I don't think I can look. Wait a minute. I'm going to take a peek, and I'll be back.
Thankfully, it didn't allow me access because I'm not a member.

I don't think I'm in too small of a minority anymore. So, men of Bamboo Nation, take this foreskin poll:
