I can't really speak to that; but I was certainly a bit apprehensive about, well, to be blunt, sticking my penis into a glass of vinegar. So I inserted it unretracted, and when it only stung a bit,...

I assume you're asking about the apple cider vinegar? I diluted it (to either half or quarter strength) and yeah, there was a slight burning sensation, but not really anymore painful than retracting...

I had a yeast infection, as an adult, after taking antibiotics for a particularly horrible double ear infection. Of course, I had no idea what was going on so I showed up to sick call and thankfully...

I think I was about 5; according to my parents, I was quite proud that I could make my penis "act like a turtle" and push the head out from my foreskin.

On the soap issue: as an intact guy, I've found it can be dependent on soap. Growing up, I took showers with my dad, also intact, who taught me to pull my foreksin back back early in a shower, soap...

I'll retract when I'm standing at a toilet, but otherwise (sitting, at a urinal, in the woods) I'll usually just pee "through" my foreskin. For me, at least, there's very little spray, and depending...

So for whatever reason, this thread shows up as one of the first choices for me in a search on "uncircumcised military" five years after the last post.

Just to let anyone know, I spent 20 years...

I once saw a pro-circ'er with a bit of a military academy fetish refer to it as the "ring of brotherhood" because apparently there aren't any uncut guys in the military or who went to an academy.
