    During my time in NoFap, I found that a lot of the times I relapsed was when I was in the shower when I was washing my penis / or shaving my pubic hair.
    The thorough washing requires me to pull back my foreskin and rub gently. But sometimes during that process, certain thoughts also came to my mind where it led me to masturbate to orgasm.

    So during the past 30 odd days, I did not pull back the foreskin and wash, except today. I could see that the smegma had accumulated under the foreskin. Also, my head felt a lot sensitive than before so I had to carefully wash it. Thankfully today I did not get the urge to masturbate.

    But within these 90 days, I hope not to take any further risks. I will not retract my foreskin and wash my penis bulb until I reach 90 days because I feel it is not worth the risk. I also don't have a girlfriend or female friend with benefits (of course I am doing NoFap in monkmode) so I do not mind not washing this area thoroughly because I feel that my fapping problem is a bigger issue than personal hygiene. Als,o I think as a side benefit, the sensitivity of the head of my penis may improve.

    After 90 days I can wash it and it will be just as good as if I had washed it every single day.

    I do not encourage this behavior to anyone who is uncircumcised. Also plenty of respect to those who have circumcised penises.

    So you actually wouldnt want to have sex with a girl you really like and are attracted to, even if you get the chance to do so?
    Even using Karezza? (Karezza means you have sex but won't O)

    I think you should do a circumcission. I had the same problem too while cleaning.
    By being circumcised, we dont have hard time cleaning our dicks.
     
  4. It is important to wash your dick every day. You’ll get used to it and eventually maybe not have urges to masturbate. Jerking off in the shower is a much better way than sitting in front of a phone looking at porn anyway. Focus on the fact that you are making amazing progress to even become aware of this. Treat your body with gratitude and it will treat you right. Care for it and wash everything everyday.

    WHAT? I seriously thought that walking in the rain once a month is widely and scientifically considered to be enough.

  6. Yes that’s fine. Also brushing yourself off after you roll in the dirt. Either/or.

    No, no, no! Have a circumcision because he lacks self control! He should continue to wash under his foreskin and should just not masturbate because briefly handling it.
    This completely unnecessary. Unlike washing under your foreskin, shaving pubic hair is a choice. Just stop @Papsy.

  9. Man I should thank my parents for circumcising me. I have to worry about my ass/taint more then my dick, and since those areas don't do much for me, I can scrub away. Also I would never willingly shave my pubes.
     
  10. @IGY of course shaving is a personal choice and it is no one else’s business. That goes for curcumcision too.

    @Papsy of course none of think you need to be circumcised.

    @SomeGymBro thise areas don’t do much for you? You mean it doesn’t arouse you when you are washing your taint or your bum hole?

    Oh yes, just to answer some points raised here -

    It’s only for this period of 90 days where I only stopping washing my penis. I was even considering just squatting to pee like a woman for this period to prevent any contact between my hands and my penis. However after the reboot period I will continue to wash my penis like I have always done. Just letting everyone know that I have no intention of making this a lifelong habit.

    As for being uncircumcised I am happy being uncircumcised. I know some girls won’t date guys who are uncircumcised but I am happy to live with that given that there are also girls who prefer uncircumcised penises and also there are girls who have no preference (I only wish more and more girls didn’t care about this to be honest). The only thing I am considering is getting a frenulectomy where only the string of skin which connects the foreskin to the bulb of the skin is cut off. So far I have no issues pulling the foreskin back, but I feel with this I would be able to pull back the foreskin even better.

    However I have a lot of respect for those who are circumcised too. Whiles I know that cleaning under the foreskin itself does not take a lot of effort I am ware that there are both pros and cons of both circumcised as well as uncircumcised. I encourage an environment where we both respect each other because the war between circumcised and uncircumcised is a thing of the past. I also encourage ladies to let go of preferences regarding this minor difference. Obviously everyone has the right for their preferences.

    And lastly I am having this set of rules just for this period of rebooting understanding my own limitations. I do not encourage what I am doing for anyone. It’s just my weakness and I am addressing the way that I think would be best so I need strength and support from both circumcised as well as uncircumcised fapstranauts. We are all in this together!

    That's dumb. He will lose sensibility in the penis head... Nature gave us a foreskin for a reason. Maybe it was better to get circumcized 50 years ago but it's not the case anymore. Many circumcized guys actuallt wish they would have had the choice to make the decision for themselves..
