This has been a topic of debate for a long time. To circumcise or not to circumcise.
Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin of the penis, usually performed on infants. Those who advocate circumcision, believe that circumcision improves health by reducing transmission of infections. But those who are against circumcision believe that it is a form of genital mutilation whose health benefits can be easily attained through simple hygiene and safe sex practices.
But your question is about sexual pleasure. Sexual pleasure for the man and for the woman. Let us first discuss about sexual pleasure for the man.
The foreskin has thousands of nerve endings and is an important part of the male sexual system. Removal of the foreskin also leaves the head of the penis — the most sensitive part of the male genitals — constantly exposed. Constant rubbing on clothing and exposure to temperature changes reduces the sensitivity and responsiveness of the nerve endings, creating the demand for more stimulation to trigger a pleasure response.
The head of the penis is like the head of the clitoris. So ladies reading this, can imagine the very tip of your clitoris constantly exposed and rubbing against your clothes, and you can begin to imagine the desensitization that would occur over time. The clitoris is protected not only by the clitoral hood, but also the fleshy labia. The foreskin is nature's protective sheath for the sensitive head of the penis.
The foreskin keeps the glans of the penis moist and warm. During arousal, it slowly retracts to expose the glans and acts as a fleshy sheath through which you can stimulate the penis. Many uncircumcised men love the feeling of the foreskin being moved over their erect penis, just as many women love to have their clitoris stimulated from the side, using the hood to buffer direct stimulation.
So uncircumcised men have more sexual stimulation and so are prone to ejaculate quicker.
Now what about the sexual pleasure of the woman? Circumcision changes the way these men make love. Circumcised men tend to penetrate much more vigorously. This style of penetration comes from a desperate search for more stimulation and the need to concentrate sensations on the tip of the penis.
Uncircumcised men, on the other hand, often penetrate with more finesse, using a slower rhythm and more of an undulating motion. The intact foreskin acts as a sheath that glides over the penis with every thrust, creating more pleasure and reducing the need to thrust with as much force to create sensation.
But sex is about learning to please your partner and developing the skills to give your lover profound orgasms. Using a range of foreplay techniques can activate more nerve endings and slowly sensitize the penis to more subtle stimulation, opening up new kinds of pleasure for circumcised men. In addition, women who have already had orgasms through manual or oral stimulation often report that intercourse becomes much more pleasurable.
So while circumcised men may be missing up to 20,000 nerve endings, it is still possible to enjoy a fully satisfying erotic life.
The foreskin plays an important, functional role in male sexual pleasure. 80 percent of the world's male population is intact. In the absence of religious demand or the rare medical need for circumcision (very rarely, the foreskin is too tight and creates painful erection, in which case it may be loosened but not removed all together), there is no widespread need for male circumcision, in our opinion.
So, it is not about circumcision or un-circumcision, it is all about the willingness and ability to please your partner.
