Sex with an Uncircumcised Man

 
Rate This

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!

Kim and Pang 2006 (255 circumcised men)
"About 6% answered that their sex lives improved, while 20% reported a worse sex life after circumcision."

Frisch 2011
"Conclusions Circumcision was associated with frequent orgasm difficulties in Danish men and with a range of frequent sexual difficulties in women, notably orgasm difficulties, dyspareunia and a sense of incomplete sexual needs fulfilment."

From a USAID report:
"There appears no clear pattern of association between male circumcision and HIV prevalence—in 8 of 18 countries with data, HIV prevalence is lower among circumcised men, while in the remaining 10 countries it is higher."

The South African National Communication Survey on HIV/AIDS, 2009 found that 15% of adults across age groups "believe that circumcised men do not need to use condoms".

It is unclear if circumcised men are more likely to infect women. The only ever randomized controlled trial into male-to-female transmission showed a 54% higher rate in the group where the men had been circumcised

ABC (Abstinence, Being faithful, and especially Condoms) is the way forward. Promoting genital surgery seems likely to cost African lives rather than save them.

i am amazed that those without a penis can comment on circumcision. First of all I was circumcised as an adult, i have suffered no loss of sensitivity. Sex is much better, not painful at all. the only difference is that you may need a different technique for masturbation but sexual intercourse has definitely been better for me. I would never want to go back to being uncircumcised. If my foreskin were to magically regrow, i would get it cut off again. The foreskin was nothing but a nuisance for me. The majority of men in the US are circumcised and i dont see them crashing doctors offices for restoration techniques. Circumcision is the gift that keeps on giving.

You, sir, are a liar or a pro-circ shill. I've read hundreds of comments on foreskin restoration websites that say the contrary. Men who get circumcised as adults lose 75% or more of their sensitivity and they are the ones who notice unlike those circ'd as an infant. That is a fact! To say you lose NO sensitivity tells me your comment is bunk. Circumcision removes over 20,000 nerve endings and many times includes removal of the frenulum, messener corpuscules and depending on the severity of the circumcision the skin can be pulled too tightly and cause pain during erection and during intercourse.

Yeah let's see how you do in 10, 20 years. You will gradually lose sensitivity as you age and miss your younger years.

If you're happy to be circumcised, that's great, but why would sex before have been painful? It sounds like there might have been a problem, and circumcision may not have been the best way to fix it. Most intact men don't find sex painful and are more than happy to stay intact. Personally, I'd pay a year's salary rather than be circumcised.

One study of adult circumcision found that: "About 6% answered that their sex lives improved, while 20% reported a worse sex life after circumcision."

You're an adult, you had some options. That is not the same as doing it to a healthy baby, giving him no choice.

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.
