Phimosis and Peyronie's.

Patient

Q: I tried to find an "urology" section, but there isn't any. This is embarassing. Here is the thing. I am 32 years old and I have phimosis. I also have Peyronie's disease. I can retract the foreskin fully when soft, but my penis is erect I can only retract the skin up to the corona of the penis but no further than this. Due to my cobndition, I cannot have sex. I cannot penetrate because my penis bends. I could if it were not for this because my phimosis is mild, but the bend makes it impossible. The thing is that I really don't want to get circumcised. Not only does the penis become leathery and insensitive after it, like the testimony of two men who had this done as adult for different reason - one had phimosis also and the other became a Jew -, but I don't want to have this because I consider it deeply, deeply demeaning and humiliating. If I went through with this, I would never again be able to feel like a man. I don't want to go through life knowing that a part of my penis was cut off with a sharp knife. I don't mean any disrespect to circumcised men, but I regard this as humiliating. There is no way in hell that I am going through this surgery. I would rather never have sex in my life than go through this humiliating surgery. I have the right to remain whole as Nature made me. Also in my nation this is very uncommon then I would feel like an odd man out and lesser than other men who are whole. I am asking advice here because American medicine is more advanced and also because I know this is common in the U.S. Before you tell me to go see an urologist, I have seen three and they all wanted to cut my foreskin. I am in despair. Can any foreskin-friendly doctor give me any advice at all? I am almost in tears as I write this. Please only foreskin-friendly doctors please.
