Foreskin orgasm (foregasm) demonstration video preview

Note: The following text and images are a preliminary draft intended to give you a sense of how the CAN-FAP multimedia guide to the intact penis will introduce the penile frenulum.

Penile frenulum (“frem”)

Introduction

A frenulum (also frenum, plural: frenula or frena) is a small fold of tissue that secures or restricts the motion of a mobile body part. The best-known frenulum is probably the frenulum linguae, which tethers your tongue to the floor of your mouth to prevent your tongue from being accidentally swallowed.


The frenulum linguae or tongue frenulum

Less well-known are the genital frenula, which both males and females possess. In a human male, the penile frenulum (“frem”) extends from the glans penis down the full length of the inner foreskin. Its primary functions are to (a) tether the foreskin to the head of the penis, and (b) to sense sexual stimuation. In a human female, this structure divides into two clitoral frenula that extend from the glans clitoris and fully enclose the vaginal orifice. These frenula are commonly known as the lips of the labia minora (inner labia).

The penile frenulum ('frem') and clitoral frenulum (inner labia)

The penile frenulum (“frem”) and clitoral frenulum (inner labia).

Blue lines indicate locations of the penile frenulum (“frem”) and clitoral frenulum (inner labia).

The male and female genital frenula are embryiologic homologues, which means they develop from the same fetal structure, and are therefore different versions of the same body part. Female genital frenula will be discussed in greater detail in Circumcision and the frenulum.

The frem is most prominent where it attaches the inner foreskin to the glans penis. When the foreskin changes position the frem moves with it, and vice versa:

The penile frenulum (“frem”). appears different depending on the position of the foreskin. Left: foreskin pulled forward. Center: foreskin slightly retracted. Right: foreskin retracted, frem pulled outward.

Like every other part of the penis, the frem varies in size and appearance. Some are prominent, while others are barely visible. Some frems appear to be a single line, while others radiate prominent blood vessels and/or folds of the inner foreskin. Here are three examples:

Examples of penile frenula plus radiating folds of inner foreskin.

The frem increases in size and sensitivity when sexually aroused. Here is my frem in its normal (left) and sexually aroused (right) states:

Like the rest of the inner foreskin, the frem is densely packed with thousands of nerve endings sensitive to fine touch and stretch, which makes it one of the most sensitive and orgasmic parts of the penis. On the next page, I will demonstrate how a man can experience orgasm from stimulating his frem with a fingertip.
