To all those who are trying to regain their foreskin and those who are uncircumcised, I'm curious to know the benefit of having that extra skin? Personally I'm circumcised and I love it, but If I'm missing out or there is some unknown benefit I would like to know and possibly regain my foreskin. Please respond because I would like to know.

I'm confused. You say that you are uncircumcised (so you have your foreskin). But you ask about benefits of having extra skin and possibly regaining your foreskin.

I think he meant to say that he has been circumcised.

A quick google search would tell you the pros and cons.

I apologize yes I'm circumcised. I understand that I can google search and find out pros and cons but I figured I could get a more personal answer if I asked people who have experienced the differences... i.e. being circumcised and wanting to regain their foreskin.

I dont know what its like to be cut but having my foreskin is great, it protects your glans from becomming desensitized. Uncut people have a lot more sensation because are glans aren't always rubbing on our pants and boxers and it keeps it from drying out. I think either way is good, but for my child I wouldn't have him cut, I rather give him the choice when he is older. Some circ scars are pretty weird too but then others are perfect. Not sure what a bj feels like for cut people but for me its awesome. You can't miss something you never had.Start Feb 01 2011

I personally think there are pros and cons to both states. If you are happy being cut, you may want to take precautionary measures to stay that way, as PE can give some guys an unexpected ant-eater.
Now, as for the pros, this material from Circumcision: Functions of the Foreskin has some excellent observations.
Also, I'm yet to validate this but I've seen several claims that the foreskin has more nerves than the entire female clitoris, and more nerves than the glans itself.
Functions of the Foreskin
The foreskin represents at least a third of the penile skin and increases sexual pleasure by sliding up and down on the shaft.
In order to appreciate the sexual functions of the foreskin, refer to Figures 5–9, which clarify what the foreskin is and how it works. Figures 5 and 6 show the difference between a circumcised and an uncircumcised penis in the relaxed or flaccid state. Note that the foreskin serves to cover the glans or head of the penis. Figure 7 shows this diagrammatically. Figure 8 shows the circumcised penis in the erect state. The shaft skin is taut. Figure 9 shows the uncircumcised penis before, during, and after erection. Note that the inner foreskin layer becomes exposed and the entire foreskin moves to loosely cover the penile shaft.

Fig. 8 Erectile Process in the Circumcised Penis
Fig. 9 Erectile Process in the Uncircumcised Penis Taylor, Lockwood, and Taylor studied the foreskin tissue at the Department of Pathology, Health Sciences Centre, University of Manitoba, Canada. They reported their results in the British Journal of Urology in an article titled “The Prepuce: Specialized Mucosa of the Penis and Its Loss to Circumcision.” Based on the examination of 22 adult foreskins obtained at autopsy, they found that the outer foreskin’s concentration of nerves is “impressive” and its “sensitivity to light touch and pain are similar to that of the skin of the penis as a whole.” The foreskin inner surface is different. It is mucous membrane similar to the inner surface of the mouth, also rich in nerves and blood vessels. Between the inner and outer layers of the foreskin is a unique structure they call a “ridged band” that contains “specialized nerve endings.” The researchers conclude that the foreskin has several kinds of nerves and “should be considered a structural and functional unit made up of more or less specialized parts. . . . The glans and penile shaft gain excellent if surrogate sensitivity from the prepuce.”
The foreskin represents at least a third of the penile skin. It protects the glans from abrasion and contact with clothes. The foreskin also increases sexual pleasure by sliding up and down on the shaft, stimulating the glans by alternately covering and exposing it. This can occur during masturbation or intercourse. Friction is minimized, and supplementary lubrication is not needed. Without the foreskin, the glans skin, which is normally moist mucous membrane, becomes dry and thickens considerably in response to continued exposure. This change reduces its sensitivity. In addition, the loss of a secretion called smegma of the inner foreskin layer removes natural lubrication. Oral-genital sexual activity is more common in the United States than in many other societies. Could the lack of natural lubrication of the penis due to circumcision be a reason?
