FI’s foreskin on his penis keeps stretching. He’s uncircumsized and had this problem for a while but recently its gotten worst to the point where we have to stop having sex because the pain for him hurts too badly. What is happening? Is there anything he can do to help it not stretch?

It sounds like you need a doctor. Ouch!

I agree that he probably needs to see a doctor, I would guess a urologist. I don’t really know anything about uncircumcised guys.

TBO it sounds like he may need to get circumsized. That is the only real way I know of to prevent that pain, to simply not have it there to cause pain! But I agrree with PP’s on having him see a DR.

@Mrs Hedgehog: I agree – I’ve heard of things like this leading to guys needing to get circumsized as adults. I think the recovery time, although painful, isn’t too long, but don’t quote me on that.
He definitely needs to head to a doctor though, if you ask me.

Please don’t ask him to get circumcised. The foreskin is there as a natural protectant, plus it can make sex less abrasive for you. He should at least see like planned parenthood for some advice since he is experiencing discomfort.

Hmmm I think he needs to go see a doctor before you two have sex again, that doesn’t sounds right in my mind. FI is uncircumsized and he’s never had this problem so a doctor would be your best bet!

This is a medical condition called phimosis and it’s actually not uncommon in uncircumcised men – if I ever have sons, they’re having the procedure in infancy as my gift to them!
There are a effective few non-surgical treatments like gradually stretching the foreskin with special little tools. Circumcision is indeed an effective fix but I don’t know how he would feel about going through that as an adult. A urologist should be able to offer other options.

Yikes, I agree with PPs that this is not a normal thing and he should see a doctor. DH is uncircumcized and his foreskin doesn’t cause him pain.

I agree with @mermaideve:, do NOT ask him to get circumcised. Are you guys lubricated enough before you go at it? Much like a woman needs some moisture (sorry if this is too graphic), guys, especially uncircumcised guys, need lubrication, natural or otherwise, to get things working smoothly. It could be that during a recent love making session he may have had a small tear on the skin which would definitely contribute to the pain–see if you can help him look at the area to determine if that is the case. If not, he doesn’t need to go to a urologist to get it checked out–his PCP is a good first step and he can go from there to see if he needs further care.
But i repeat, do NOT ask for a circumcision–foreskin is there for a reason in the first place–do you have any idea how much it hurts an adult male to get snipped!? Good luck!
