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!

There are cut women who insist that their sex lives have been improved by being circumcised. Doesn't mean I believe them.

The head of your penis isn't where most of the pleasure comes from btw. The most sensitive and erogenous parts of a circumcised man's penis are the scar line and the frenulum if that wasn't removed.

Sex with an uncircumcised man is more pleasurable, for both the male and female. That's because it is happening the way it should, with all the parts there and working properly.

As the O'Hara study showed, women who have had experience with cut and normal men, OVERWHELMINGLY (>85%) prefer normal sex.

"(1) just because you are circumcised doesnt make you "less of a man"
Maybe not, but circumcision makes one a man with less of a penis...and missing the most sensitive part of it.

"circumcised its more messy when it comes to sex when the male cums, because the foreskin covers the area where the cum comes out, so it becomes... messy. and if you dont clean well then the males penis will definitely smell."

NO it does not, the foreskin retracts UNLESS one has phimoisis-a very rare condition easily cured by the simple application of a steroid cream.
And if circumcised penis is not cleaned, it will also smell--as does an uncleaned vagina, so?

"(3) STFU YOU ALREADY MENTIONED THAT."

Absolutely no idea what this is supposed to mean.

"(4) Regardless, either if you are circumcised or un YOU CAN STILL GET HIV & HPV."

Of course, as circumcision has no bearing on either of these.

"(4) you are clearly mistaken. I HAVENT GATHERED this information from MERE internet AS YOU. I actually learned it FYI."

WHERE and from whom did you "learn this"? OPINIONS?
Unless you get it from actual and complete medical studies that agree with empirical evidence, it is useless information--OPINIONS mean nothing unless they are supported by valid scientific information

This came from one teenager who is currently studying for college:

ANA:
This guy is a MORON. I wanna punch him! Haha
This debate is ON. What I am taking about cleanliness doesn't deal with the smegma, its the cum when you have sex.
When the males penis is hard. It is hard to retract, so when he cums that's when it becomes a mess. Because the foreskin covers the opening dumbass.

And don't say its a myth. HOW CAN IT BE A MYTH WHEN PEOPLE NOWADAYS DO IT.
And your stupid for saying educate yourself. YOU educate yourself. We understand your point, you don't understand ours. I'm not picking that cicumcised is better or not, I'm xlearly giving out information to EDUCATE YOU.
Don't say I'm wrong about my information because I learned it from a nurse/doctor. And who are you to mess with people in the medical field.

Whaaaaat noooow biiitch.
Hahaha this is fun.

Btw, yoy never answered my question about the smelly penis. LOL

Well, here is another stupid and ignorant OPINION from..someone who obviously had never dealt with a normal penis...when it is erect, the vast majority of men's foreskins RETRACT!

The only time the foreskin covers the glans is when flaccid.

Here is your silly question about smelly-- you are stupid, when properly rinsed, it has no more smell then your vagina--in fact since it is EASIER to rinse out then your vagina--guess which is more smelly?

Now if you want to educate ME, you better know what you are talking about--which is myth, and which is fact.

P.S. time to find yourself an educated nurse/doctor, the one you have is as ignorant as yourself.

All the comments I've added were from different people- usually teenage guys. I asked about their opinion regarding the issue. That's all. It's not like it all came from me.I got no more say base on the issue.

"Because from what I've gathered, uncircumcised men are more prone to HIV and HPV that can be passed to their sexual partners."

Check the real world rates of these in circumcising and intact countries and you will find that what you have "gathered" is completely wrong!
REALITY is a harsh mistress!
