Question
Hi my question is Why is the Glans/Penis Head more Sensitive to touch than the Shaft ? I notice when I Masturbate it feels better to touch the Glans than the Shaft ? Is there anyway I can get used to touching both the Glans/Shaft I have seen that in Porn but Im trying to rub up the Glans to touch Shaft both any advice Lube or does this matter thank you for you're time ?

Answer
The glans is supposed to be an internal organ but through the widespread practice of circumcision, it has become an ill-fitting external organ for many men.  If you were circumcised, you would notice the glans is even more sensitive.  Circumcised men are only able to stimulate the glans directly when they use lube.  See this page for more information about different brands and types of lube: http://www.healthystrokes.com/lube.html.
