Sex with an Uncircumcised Man

I’ll be honest; I had to do a lot of research before sitting down to write this article. I have only come into contact with one uncircumcised penis during my short stint as a single adult woman, and it didn’t really seem to be that big of a deal at the time.

However, when it comes to uncircumcised (commonly spelled "uncercumsized") penises, there’s more than meets the eye . Approximately 50% of men are “uncut,” which is really how the penis is meant to be in the first place (not many men outside the United States are circumcised). Circumcision originated among ancient religious populations as a way to purify man by removing the source of his sexual pleasure. This tradition has held its ground into the 21st century, which can lead to quite a bit of confusion when a woman unexpectedly comes into contact with a penis au naturale.

It may surprise you to learn that the foreskin itself, before it is separated from its owner, is extremely sensitive to pleasure. During circumcision two very important things are removed that will never grow back: the frenulum, the band near the tip of the penis that connects the foreskin with the glans, and then of course, the foreskin and all the nerve endings that go along with it.

Not only are these sources of pleasure eliminated during circumcision, but the shaft of the penis is left unprotected and slowly loses its responsiveness through a process called keratinization. In an article published in Fathering Magazine, Rio Cruz explains that “the male glans and inner foreskin, just like the clitoris and inner labia of women, are actually internal structures covered by mucous membrane that, when exposed to the air and harsh environment through circumcision, develop a tough, dry covering to protect the delicate, sensitive tissue.”

The main difference in having sex with an uncircumcised penis is that the foreskin acts as a glider of sorts, and it stays in place while the glans and shaft continue to thrust. This leads to less friction in the vagina and thus a more pleasurable experience for the female.

To all the women out there STOP you don't have a penis so you don't know what we go through just like we don't know what you go through when you get menopause... So first thing im 38 years old i got circumcised this year by far its the best move i could of done so lets start, now my penis don't doesn't smell like urine, my penis doesn't sweet, im always ready even when i come home from work, when i was uncircumcised i always had to be in a look out, the head of my penis was always moist and sometimes smelly, once i took a shower it be ok but once i pissed that was it sometimes i would dry it but you can't always do that... so with that said i have been in in quite amounts of relationship, one night stands and so on... but i am a homehealth aide teacher and nobody thinks we are going to get older and beleave me there aren't too many wifes or homehealth aide that are going to clean you up and pull your skin back when your old and have no strength also now i feel like a porn star, my penis has character and i can still f the shit out any girl, so with that said i think all of us men should consider being circumcised specially at an older stage in life.... so if you thinking about it yes do it but find the right surgeon because my surgeon did a great job nice and straight looks like a model jijijijijijijiji i love my penis thats my bro....... also the surgery goes like this you can't jerk off for about 1month and ahalf, within that month and a half you will bleed and be in pain and your stitches will pop in the morning with the hard on, but its normal by the end of the month your going to want to rip your wife in half because your so horny plus you can't wait till you use it because yes at first it's scary but one you hit that boy your going to be happy and your going to cum like you never came before in your life also your going to admire it, you just got a new toy, also its a little different when you jerk off since your use to the skin but with time it gets even better, also your underwears will heart the head of your penis because it feels very sensitive i recommend wear a tight underwear or a cup but in time it will go back to the same thing but only more confident because your ready any time... and thats the real truth so stop it only a circumcised person know the deal in my case i love i feel more manly for some reason, its something i can't explains and to those that talk it because either they fked your circumcision or all the bullshit you hear over hear gets you scared. good look.... everyone, i seriously hope this helps to all men out there....

My ex was circumcised and the sex was ok. My now husband is not circumcised and the sex is amazingly out of this world!!! Congrats to just ruining your capability of screwing the sh*t out of any girl or your spouse. She might make you think that you feel as amazing, but she is only being polite

First, you sound like a stereotypical male that doesn't care about women as people, secondly, you had penis problems personally if it smelt that bad in the first place, and furthermore, you can't be that good if you think circumcised is "better". Last;y, if you are a "teacher", your spelling is appalling.

Your sensitive now but wait five to ten years and you will build up thick skin around the head. Now wait till your 50s,60,s and even 70,s your will have ed. Your butt and feet smell after a hard days work, you dont go cutting them off ? Women smell like urine sometimes too. Some women don't look all that pretty down either. We don't go cutting and trimming their private parts. You now a have dry piston penis and will need artificial lube.

Circumcision on a baby is genital mutilation. Call it by what it is. There is no medical reason to remove it and it involves someone altering a private party from somebody else who can't possibly understand or decide for himself. Let your son grow up and decide what he wants to do. Personally, I prefer uncut men and I love to play with the foreskin. Like everything in our reproductive organs, the foreskin has a function. As per sensibility, big difference I saw ... A circumcised man has the tip brushing against fabric since forever, of course it loses a bit of sensibility or there would be pain ... a light touch won't make a difference for them. Try the same thing with the tip that gets 24/7 protection. Parents, please, circumcision is the biggest lie ever told. Let your son alone. It's their body.

the person with a circumcise penis is hygienically better. so if your not cut, then spend more extra time to clean it habitually so anytime, there is checking it smells good, lol.\

I was circumcised at 25, almost 20 years ago. I had plenty of sex before, and plenty after. My penis is no less sensitive now than it was pre-circumcision and, and this will get all in 'inactivitsts' going, I'd honestly say sex is better without the foreskin. For those that like to argue about the loss of all the nerve endings, I'd suggest you go and actually learn what the procedure is about - it certainly is not lopping off all of the foreskin and loose millions of pleasure giving nerve endings.... I know!

And from what I can ascertain, there was not much in it from the women's side. Some preferred the feeling of a circumcised penis, some preferred the look on an uncircumcised, most didn't care less.

And all this talk of the so called 'gliding action', which may be a thing for some with a foreskin, but not all because foreskins, like all parts of the human body, come in all thickness' and lengths. Some foreskins are naturally so short they appear circumcised when erect, some so long that the head barely gets out; so claiming an uncircumcised penis will be this, or do that, is just plain daft!

Then there's this whole thing about how women don't get dry with an uncircumcised partner... well for some women, the pill effectively 'dries them up' making the use of lube essential, it has nothing to do with a foreskin. I've been in two relationships where the use of the pill was akin to turning a tap. On it, dry and lube needed every-single-time; off it, no problems. Do any of the inactivist claims take this into account, I bet not.

And to all those women telling men their penis' should feel like this, or that, and you are missing out because, and... STOP IT! You are not the owner of a penis, so you do not qualify for an opinion. End of story. If a woman is trying to give an opinion about what a penis should or should not be doing, tune out, right there and then.

Look, this is and forever will be an endless argument. Do what you want with your kids, there's not right or wrong. If you are a man with a foreskin, or without, be happy. If you are a woman, get to know what your guy likes, it about using what he's got and really, foreskin or not, learn how to use it and you both will have a great time. But articles like this, based on one the mumbo-jumbo science of the so called 'anti lobby' are misleading at best, dangerous at worst. I know what it's like to be uncircumcised and I know what it's like to be circumcised and honestly, all these bizarre claim being touted as fact... well, they are just bizarre claims, nothing else.

I was circumcised at 41 years old. The foreskin was cutting off blood supply to the glans. I also have a lot of experience before and after. To me, it's much better after, not so sensitive. My wife said that she could not tell the difference. As an adult, it's a very uncomfortable two weeks after surgery, but I'm glad mine was removed.
