Male Organ Mechanics - The Anatomy and Function of the Sheath


While removal of the sheath remains the norm for most male children born in the United States, medical research has revealed few health-related benefits to this practice, and for many men, cutting may actually have negative side effects. For men who do have an intact sheath, it can seem like an extra chore to keep it clean, and they may wonder about what good it is to have this extra flap of flesh attached to the end of the male organ.

However, the sheath is more than just extra skin; it serves a number of important functions. Understanding what it does and caring for it properly, as well as nourishing it with the right combination of male organ vitamins and minerals, can help guys of all ages to make the most of their sheath and enjoy a satisfying and exhilarating pleasure life.

What is the sheath?

The sheath is a double layer of skin that covers the head of the male organ when it is flaccid. The outer layer of the sheath is an extension of the dermal tissue covering the shaft of the male organ. The inner layer, on the other hand, is a type of mucus membrane that is unique to the male organ. In addition, a ridged band encircles the opening of the sheath, tightening to protect the head during inactivity and retracting to allow for penetration when the male organ is erect. A small, connective band (similar to the connective tissue under the tongue) is found at the underside of the male organ.

What are the most important functions of the sheath?

Researchers have identified a number of important functions of the sheath; the most prominent of these are listed here:

1. To protect the infant male organ from ammonia and waste matter in the diaper;

2. To protect the head from friction and chafing;

3. To soften the skin of the head with naturally-occurring emollients;

4. To serve as a lubricant during self-stimulation;

5. To ease penetration during partner activity;

6. To serve as a stimulant during sensual play due to the large number of nerve receptors underlying the sensitive skin;

7. To stimulate the female center of pleasure during partner activity.

Some common sheath problems

Although it is important to overall male function, the sheath can develop a number of problems that can result in soreness, inflammation, or inability to retract the skin fully (which may lead to pain during partner activity).

• Balanitis - this infection is often seen as the result of poor hygiene; it presents as redness of the head, inflammation, itching or burning, and/or an unpleasant-smelling, chunky discharge. Proper cleansing and the use of natural antibacterials may help to prevent this condition.

• Phimosis - When the ridged band at the end of the sheath does not stretch properly, retraction can be difficult and painful. Many men can successfully retract their sheath through gentle stretching and moisturizing of the sheath.

• Paraphimosis - This condition is diagnosed when the sheath retracts, but is then too tight to be extended over the head. In some cases, it can be so tight that it restricts circulation to the head, which may cause permanent damage if not treated. Medical attention is needed when this occurs.

Caring for the sheath

To care for the sheath properly, gentle washing with an all-natural cleanser (ordinary soaps can cause drying and cracking of the skin) is advised. Moisturizing and nourishing the sheath with a specialized male organ health formula (most health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) that contains essential vitamins, minerals and naturally-occurring moisturizing agents can help to maintain the natural elasticity and tone of the sheath, allowing it to protect the male organ and promote optimum sensitivity and function during pleasure.
