I'll add a problem!
My son, after a day at the beach, playing in the waves, climbing the rocks, digging in the sand, went to remove his swim suit.
His foreskin had worked its way through the mesh lining of his shorts. A lot of it. All ended fine but it included a lot of pain and bit of panic. Me trying to find scissors or a knife to cut it away. (The lifeguards and snack shack staff were horrified at "My son's foreskin is caught in his swimsuit" and were more than willing to help!) Him crying in the women's room afraid to move.
We have a rule now that everytime you pee in the ocean while swimming you have to check to make sure things aren't hooking up!
Me. With 1 spouse, 4 kids, 16 chickens, 74 matchbox cars, 968,562+ legos, a dishwasher waiting to be emptied, a washing machine waiting to be filled and a lost cup of tea in the house.
My son is 4 and has never had any problems. My husband is 38 and he has never had a problem.

My son is only 7 months, but he's doing fine so far. Maybe he's supposed to be "unfine" once his foreskin retracts.
I assume he'll be dealing with infections at first. Then I will have to explain why he doesn't look like Daddy. Later on, he will come home mad at me because the kids at school/girls don't like his intact penis. As an adult, I'm afraid it's likely that he will end up with an STD. I'm also going to have to deal with anger from my future DIL when my son gives her cervical cancer.
Sigh....that horrible, dirty foreskin....
I have two sons who are almost 1 and almost 3. Both of their penises are as perfect and problem free as they were on the day they were born. And they still have ALL their parts ;)
My 3.5 DS has had no problems. He can retract quite a bit, and does so all the time, though I'm not sure what "fully" would entail. The only sort of "problem" ended up not being one, though I'm afraid if I had taken him to the doctor it could have become problematic... Last month he got bitten by a bunch of fire ants, including one bite at the base of his penis - foreskin swelled up, got purple, and looked like a freakin elephant trunk, but he said it didn't hurt and was able to pee just fine, so we let it be and he was fine in a couple days. I had an RN friend come check it out that first day, and she said not to worry yet if peeing was normal. Here's to trusting bodies!

My ds will be 3yp in January, and has had no problems.
Also, bumping for other mama's to see.
No problems with our 6yo or our 2.5yr old. The only problem we have had is with uneducated DR's who try to tell us to retract.
