Hello, I went through your query, smegma is a secretion from sebaceous gland, it lubricates the cavity between the foreskin of the penis and the glans, thus allowing smooth movement between them during intercourse. It is actually useful for smooth movement between foreskin and glans.. Don't worry about it.... Maintain good genital hygiene by washing with soap and water daily...
