Ron Low - circumcised at birth in 1962 - demonstrates the steps men may need to take for successful use of non-surgical foreskin restoration techniques. The preparation involves removing hair from the penile shaft. Intact men wouldn't have as much coarse hair growing on the shaft anyway, so hair removal can be thought of as the first victory in the battle to undo a genital amputation that was most likely performed by force without consent.

The foreskin plays an important role in normal function. The skin that is commonly removed in circumcision is imbued with thousands of specialized nerve endings, highly sensitive to light touch. The restored skin protects the glans and adjacent mucosa, keeping these parts supple and sensitive. The normal or restored sheath of slack skin provides a mobility that lets the skin glide during intimacy and manipulation, affording the natural mode of frictionless stimulation.

Non-surgical foreskin restoration involves tensioning the skin which induces the skin tube to grow longer so the surviving skin can function somewhat like a foreskin. Although there is no evidence that specialized nerve ending organelles regenerate, the nerve endings which remain can function more as seemingly "intended" by nature because the skin sheds thickened surface layers, stays moist, and slinks around to cause a bending and straightening of the skin which the nerve endings are seemingly "designed" to respond to.

The shaver I'm using in this video is called the Panasonic ES8103 Wet/Dry. What I like about it is long battery life, high-speed linear motor, floating cutting head that contours to curved surfaces, and ease of maintenance. The blades cost about $20 (ebay) to replace every 1-2 years. One drawback is that I haven't found a way to replace the flip-up beard trimmer attachment's cutter if it gets dull or damaged, and I guess when that happens I'll have to buy a separate beard trimmer for 20 or 30 dollars.
