For circumcised men who are experiencing gradual loss of sensation throughout the course of their lifetime, there actually is a process of foreskin restoration that involves the use of tape and weights (?).

So when all is said and done, you (and your partner) are actually likely to have much better sex with a penis that is uncircumcised. If you’re performing oral sex and looking for tips, just focus your efforts on the ridge just below the glans and use your hand to help the foreskin go with the flow. That's all there is to it!

We value and respect our HERWriters' experiences, but everyone is different. Many of our writers are speaking from personal experience, and what's worked for them may not work for you. Their articles are not a substitute for medical advice, although we hope you can gain knowledge from their insight.

Donna Merril: "but seemed to me a no brainer not to do it. Only because it was the natural way to be born"

The natural way to be born ? ? ? Having a part of your genitals cut off is the natural way ? ? ? How 'zactly is that ? ? ?

"If removing the foreskin has a way of reducing sexual pleasure in men then I think it is healthy to do so because even the males that are circumcised are still over stimulated at mere sight of the female"

This is over stimulartion of the brain, not the genitals. They are not the same.

"and some are committing rape in the process."

Rape is not due to overly sensitive genitals otherwise, women would be the rapists.

"If at all there is inhibition of pleasure I don't think the difference is much."

The genitals are primarily pleasure organs. Any reduction is too much. The continuation of the species depends on the sex drive and the survival of the species (Humanoids) is dependent on the sex drive.

Sometimes science and religion antagonize themselves. God prescribed circumcision for men and feels the female clitoris should be allowed to stay perhaps for health and other reasons.

Thanks for writing this article. It caught my eye because recently my grandson was circumcised. Of course there was a lot of concern with all family members involved. I didn't know much on the subject, but seemed to me a no brainer not to do it. Only because it was the natural way to be born and have heard that circumcised men were deprived of the sexual satisfaction of uncircumcised me.
This article really explained to me the difference. Thanks for the education.

I do take circumcision very personal. I hate that it wasn't my choice to decide weather to get rid of the foreskin or not. Sex is one of the greatest things in life. Why mess with your sons penis? Are you sick? I hate my mom for circumcising me. Im 5ft 8in. My penis is 6 Inches. When i get a good erection sometimes my penis hurts like its trying to jump out of its skin. I'm a handsome guy believe me i had nice women but i'm insecure. Men like me wants the big booby girls who wants the 8inch dicks. It sucks how men can't enlarge the penis because they are circumcised. Why cross out the best in life?

Buffydaddy is Jewish; that warps his judgment in this matter.

You're almost right. Buffydaddy is married to a Jewish woman. Buffydaddy is not himself Jewish unless he converted.

Just a few troubling facts: 80% of American men have been circumcised. It is estimated that 70% of Americans have been infected with the HPV virus. Evidence that circumcision is not working at all.

More evidence: A British study found that 54% of 13-15 year old school girls have been infected with HPV. The most likely source: Their uncircumcised mothers as they passed through the birth canal.

Another troubling fact: 97% of infected persons will develop a natural immunity to HPV within 3 years and complely eliminate the virus from their bodies.

I am a 33 year old mother of 2 (both uncut boys) and have only been with 2 men in my life..first husband was circumsized and my husband now is not..I can not even describe how much more satisfying sex is with a my current uncut man! my ex ( who was cut ) and he had a really hard time being satisfied because of his lack of sensitivity and I felt i had to do kinky stuff so he could get more friction..I also felt inadequit as a women because of being a little looser after haveing 2 children..my hand and mouth also got tired dureing oral sex because it took so long and my vagina often got sore because of how long it took..I feel so lucky to have experienced sex how it should be ! now I know i did the right thing by leaveing my two sons intact ! oral sex goes alot smoother because of the natural libricants under the foreskin and the way it moves in your hand and inside your body is out of this world ! The penis when exposed is much softer and multiple orgasams are regular for both of us..I will never go back! I'm like a little kid with a new toy and can't wait to play with it again :)
