Choosing whether or not you want to be circumcised is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. However, before making your choice, you should know some of the differences between a circumcised and non-circumcised penis.
Almost everywhere debate is raging over the differences experienced in terms of sexual feelings between men with circumcised vs uncircumcised penises. So, whether or not you have considered circumcision, below are some important facts worth noting.
Circumcision basically involves removal of part of the prepuce. As a result, men who have undergone the procedure lose most of the fine touch receptors. The receptors are highly sensitive to sensations of light touch which is a big part of sexual pleasure for men. After circumcision, the skin below the foreskin becomes slightly harder in order to offer protection. The changes could cause greatly reduced sensitivity during lovemaking.
Some studies indicate that women with partners who are circumcised are more sexually satisfied, although other studies show otherwise. Even so, there is an advantage for the women with non-circumcised partners. When retraction of the foreskin occurs, it folds up beneath the glans which causes more friction and stimulation while the penis is rubbing against the clitoris. This is fantastic news for women with clitoral arousal patterns.
Researchers have also discovered that women with partners who are circumcised have more than doubled the risk of pain during sexual encounters compared to women with non-circumcised partners. The uncircumcised male member feels a lot smoother. In fact, it is almost velvet smooth. This is particularly beneficial for the women who are not capable of producing sufficient amounts of lubricant. A man with an uncircumcised penis has a slicker penis compared to the circumcised one which means there is very little need for lubricant during sex or masturbation.
1. An uncircumcised penis poses a greater risk of infection and skin inflammation of the penis almost three-fold. Inability of the foreskin to retract and penis constriction are other problems that are likely to occur as well.
2. Cancer of the penis is more common in non-circumcised men. Penile cancer has caused the deaths of 25% of men afflicted by the condition while those who survive may need to undergo penile amputation. Despite this, cancer of the penis is quite rare and rare cases have been reported in men who have not had the cut.
Is Circumcision Really Necessary?
The debate is still raging on with regard to health reasons between the circumcised vs uncircumcised penis. According to some studies, the medical and health benefits are more than risks. Nevertheless, these may not be substantial enough to warrant circumcision of newly born boys. Circumcision is recommended if men or older boys suffering the effects of penile infection or phimosis.
Before making the decision to be circumcised, consult your doctor about the benefits and risks involved. Personal preference, religious factors and cultural factors all play a critical role in the choice you make. So, you should carefully think about what is best for you or your son.
