Sex with an Uncircumcised Man

I’ll be honest; I had to do a lot of research before sitting down to write this article. I have only come into contact with one uncircumcised penis during my short stint as a single adult woman, and it didn’t really seem to be that big of a deal at the time.

However, when it comes to uncircumcised (commonly spelled "uncercumsized") penises, there’s more than meets the eye . Approximately 50% of men are “uncut,” which is really how the penis is meant to be in the first place (not many men outside the United States are circumcised). Circumcision originated among ancient religious populations as a way to purify man by removing the source of his sexual pleasure. This tradition has held its ground into the 21st century, which can lead to quite a bit of confusion when a woman unexpectedly comes into contact with a penis au naturale.

It may surprise you to learn that the foreskin itself, before it is separated from its owner, is extremely sensitive to pleasure. During circumcision two very important things are removed that will never grow back: the frenulum, the band near the tip of the penis that connects the foreskin with the glans, and then of course, the foreskin and all the nerve endings that go along with it.

Not only are these sources of pleasure eliminated during circumcision, but the shaft of the penis is left unprotected and slowly loses its responsiveness through a process called keratinization. In an article published in Fathering Magazine, Rio Cruz explains that “the male glans and inner foreskin, just like the clitoris and inner labia of women, are actually internal structures covered by mucous membrane that, when exposed to the air and harsh environment through circumcision, develop a tough, dry covering to protect the delicate, sensitive tissue.”

The main difference in having sex with an uncircumcised penis is that the foreskin acts as a glider of sorts, and it stays in place while the glans and shaft continue to thrust. This leads to less friction in the vagina and thus a more pleasurable experience for the female.

Can we all stop saying uncut. You can't undo something that wasn't done. It's stupid. Btw don't cut shit off of babies. It's sick and disgusting. All those poor baby boys. It's inhumane. For reals. Stop. Blood coming from the penis as a child? You think that's good that you're doing that? It's mind blowing! Do it as an adult who cares. Just give the lil guy the choice. But come on for real? Cutting up babies ain't cool.

After looking into female and male circumsicion, and having a baby girl of my own, I have officially decided thanks to this article that if we have a boy the next time around, he WILL NOT be circumsiced. No gender should be mutilated. I think if this is a procedure someone wants later in life,they should go for it. But by THIER will. I feel so awful for once believing male circumcision is the way to go.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

 

Please don't beat yourself up about it.  If you are in the USA, then circumcision was standard procedure for boys.  It's not like that anymore.  Muslims and Jews are circumcise their boys on a regular basis and it is still standard for many. 

To this day, many cultures do body modifications that would seem dreadful to others.

My foreskin used to be really tight. Tight to the point where it hurt when it was retracted. It was awful. Per my doctor's suggestion, I started using a penis health creme that contained Vitamin E and shea butter. Things are so much better down there now! The skin slides easily and smoothly, and I can finally enjoy pain-free sex. I just wanted to share this tip with some of my fellow uncut brothers out there. Hope this helps some of you!

The creme is called Man1 Man Oil. It is by far the best one out there, and it has helped me in a number of ways. You can get it online. Good luck!

Can we at least agree, that genital cutting is not a parental right, and this decision should be left to the person who is in possession of the penis? The best people to argue against circumcision are the men who have been through the procedure and who are now having to deal with the consequences of ignorant medical professionals. I was under a false impression about circumcision for a lot of my life but as an adult, I learned to recognize BS when I hear it and science when I read it. it's our job as human beings to change our minds when we are wrong. No matter how this practice became prevalent in the USA, it has to stop. A large percentage of medical texts floating around don't even have diagrams or information regarding the foreskin. Part of a boys penis is not expendable. There is a lot of misinformation floating around, and a growing number of doctors, nurses, and parents who are educating themselves about circumcision and realizing it has no value whatsoever. It is not a useless piece of skin, circumcision is not a harmless medical procedure with minimal pain, circumcision is not necessary for cleanliness......the foreskin doesn't even become loose enough to move until puberty ate age 10 or older and when you forcibly retract it to cut it away or clean under it, it is similar to ripping off a fingernail. You have nothing to lose by reading up about this, give your child a gift before you choose to get part of his genitalia removed and listen to the arguments against. Religion and tradition and deliberate ignorance are not good reasons to mutilate your kid.

Circumcision is so prevalent in America because of it's health benefits. It lowers the risk of contracting various STDs. It also improves hygiene.

The ignorance is strong with this one. Every healthy male is born with foreskin. If it's NOT needed, then WHY is it there? Try thinking for once instead of following the lemmings right off the cliff.
