Sex with an Uncircumcised Man

By Shaina Gaul
 
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!

To be honest, I don't read articles written in a light grey colour on a white background. It's far too difficult to see. Why don't people use BLACK text on white, or LIGHT GREEN on BLACK (preferable)?

Excellent article, but please don't use the perjorative term "uncircumcised." Men whose genitals have escaped the scalpel should be called "intact." We wouldn't call an African woman who escaped the knife "unclitoridectomized."

I am an American woman who can attest to the horrible nature of circumcision. My own brother had complications with the circumcision he had at birth, and had to have it fixed (painfully, I might add) as he was nearing puberty. Too many babies go through that for absolutely no reason. Why remove a natural, functioning organ? There is no other surgery that is justified by the same means and still legal (look up female genital mutilation, which is illegal, and look at the similar reasoning used for it and for male circumcision). News flash doctors: IT'S THE SAME THING. But I digress.

As far as my own sex life, when I became sexually active and touched a penis for the first time, I was actually shocked that there was no gliding movement. I knew nothing about circumcision at the time, and had never seen any type of penis intact or circumcised (my family is fairly conservative when it comes to sex, and I was always extremely shy about it). However, I naturally assumed there would be some type of movement of the skin on the shaft. What does that tell you? A woman who had utterly no prior knowledge of male anatomy whatsoever instinctively expected there to be movement. Since then, I have been with an intact man also, and I tell you in all honesty, intact penises are much easier. They are more sensitive, much easier to please, and more fun to play with. Sorry if that's too much info, but I'm sick of the misinformation surrounding a natural penis. Also, the story that an intact penis is dirtier than a circumcised one is complete bullshit (pardon my French). As a matter of fact, the intact penis I experienced was actually cleaner than any of the circumcised ones.

Men are supposed to have a foreskin, and any doctor who says otherwise is misinformed. In the U.S. doctors promote all kinds of propaganda to perpetuate the removal of foreskins on any man or child that has one. Moral of my story for all the ladies out there: Don't be afraid to try an intact guy. I promise you'll like it just as much if not more than a circumcised penis. Also, if you're going to have children at any point, reconsider having an integral part of their body chopped off at birth. He'll thank you later.

To all you doctors out there spreading your bullcrap on the web, answer me this: Of every animal on the face of the planet, human or otherwise, why are male human beings the ONLY creatures who have to have a part of their body amputated at birth? Hmmm?

Male humans aren't the only creatures to have healthy body parts amputated at birth though. Many people also choose to chop off the tails of certain breeds of puppies, for example. But yeah, humans are the only creatures which routinely mutilate healthy infants for no real reason.

Wow the world is going to be such a better place now that you have explained to everyone how to give a proper blow job to a guy with foreskin. Get some morals and write about something meaningful you pig.

@Anonymous: "I'm a 55 year old cut man and the head of my penis is so sensitive that if it were any more sensitive I would loose my load upon entry."
We often hear cut men say that (http://www.circumstitions.com/Sexuality.html#more ) - yet intact men aren't all "losing their load upon entry" - funny, that. This strongly suggests that circumcision affects sensitivity, but not in a good way. in fact circumcision forces men to rely on the sensitivity of a greatly reduced area of their penis (the frenulum, if they're lucky enough to have been left it), making it more hair-trigger. Whether this is an advantage or not can only be decided by the adult man - but when it's a detriment, it's too late.

From Dr. Buffman (Buffydaddy) EmpowHER Expert

Anonymous, I am a urologist and an expert in the field of sexual medicine. I see approximately 5,000 men each year with erectile, ejaculatory dysfunction and hormonal dysfunction or a combination of each. It is my objective opinion, after conducting face to face interviews with so many of these men, that circumcision undoubtedly does not affect sensitivity or pleasure after the healing phase of a few months. Interestingly so many careless men, without seeking expert advice, are driven to clinics that advocate circumcision and hormonal treatments to achieve the end-result of abating and or "curing" premature ejaculation.

This practice is not only archaic but borders on malpractice.

Dr Buffman, the claim that circumcision does not affect sensitivity borders on idiocy.

Cutting healthy flesh off healthy bodies is the province of cosmetic surgeons, not healers.

Medical personnel, such as urologists, E.R. docs, labor and delivery nurses, are probably the worst people to ask about circumcision. They see only the problem cases, and then generalize their observations to the total male population. Men who have no problems with their foreskin do not seek out a urologist to tell him or her that sex with a foreskin is marvelous. I think the testimonials of healthy, intact males are of much more value than the skewed opinions provided by medical personnel who, by the way, have a financial stake in continuing the practice of circumcising as many men as possible.

I think you've just hit the nail on the head there! these so called experts are purely invested in financial gain - not the health and well being of the guy and his partners.
