Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.  

There are benefits for both you and your wife if you get a circumcision.  

Some major benefits include: 

  • A decreased risk of urinary tract infection.
  • A reduced risk of some sexually transmitted diseases in men .
  • Protection against sex organ cancer for men and a reduced risk of cervical cancerin females.

As for the difference sexually, it causes men to take longer to reach an ejaculation, which most view as a benefit.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
