A:   Thanks for consulting us. It is common to have foreskin for all males. If there is problem with it like unable to retract freely, it could be due to phimosis, paraphimosis, balenitis etc. Some people may have excess foreskin that may interfere during intercourse. If you have any such issues, consult surgeon and follow his advice.
