    […] by the rearward gliding action during penetration triggers ejaculation. [39] It is argued that removal of the foreskin results in a thickening of the glans because of chafing[ipfs.io] [37] Taylor (2000) suggests that the gliding action, where it occurs, may stimulate the nerves of the ridged band, [38] and speculates (2003) that the stretching of the frenulum[ipfs.io]

  • Scleredema Adultorum
