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!

He may not have a problem reaching orgasm, but what about you? I don't know if you're in your 20s or 30s but when you reach your 40s, vaginal secretions decrease dramatically and sex with a circumcised penis becomes painful and chaffed. I noticed this the first time I had sex with my circ'd husband but I thought it was due to enthusiastic sex and would have never guessed it was due to lack of foreskin. He also had erectile dysfunction and it's most common in circ'd males. After 10 years of marriage I finally found out, no thanks to biased medical books, circumstitions and a pro-circ culture. Now he's restoring his foreskin (tugging and a device) and it's slow going but I can already notice a difference and so can he. It can take up to 10 years to fully restore the foreskin but after about 4 months, sex should be greatly improved from what it was before. He'll never get back his frenulum and messener corpuscles and those 20,000 nerves but he can gain back up to 80% of what was lost during routine infant circumcision.

No, because it's not. Endurance and lack of sensitivity are two different things. With endurance, or stamina, a man is in touch with his feelings down there and can postpone climax (switching techniques, etc.), so that sex is pleasurable and rewarding for both partners. With a lack of sensitivity however, the prolonged, desperate thrusting needed to achieve orgasm is not pleasurable but rather frustrating and exhausting for everyone. Still, I'm glad you're husband gives you plenty of "organisms."

If you and your husband are happy, that's great, but most intact men can delay their orgasm too, and they're enjoying it a lot more while that happens. It should at least be their choice.

A Danish study found the following btw:
"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."

The only thing this article is lacking is facts.
The writer has no expertise in sexuality, much less circumcision. Sex is better if he's uncircumcised? There is NO data to support such a ridiculous assertion.
And the lack of information about how the U.N. is using voluntary circumcision to reduce HIV transmission in Africa is simply appalling.

You're wrong the penis tip if 15 times more sensitive when forskin is intact and every woman I've been with has raved about their orgasms because a foreskin glided and pulls back and forth on the clit and hits the gspot better and her own natural juices stay inside her and she stays wet the entire time from the natural lube staying under the foreskin

Plenty of people who have lots of expertise in sexuality agree with the commonsense of the author. The uniquely mobile, richly innervated foreskin functions exactly as it was naturally selected / divinely designed to do, give pleasure to both partners. This was known for centuries, both to its friends and enemies, before circumcision became customary in the USA. See http://www.circumstitions.com/Pleasure.html
Voluntary circumcision should stay that way - not be imposed on babies, children or young men. If adult men think a slight (and dubious) reduction in HIV tranmission from women (but not the other way, possibly an increased risk) is worth it, they can always choose to have it done. That is quite irrelevant here.

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.
