Circumcised men feel less pleasure!There’s bad news for circumcised men! A new study reveals that men who have had their foreskins removed in their early childhood or adult hood tend to experience less intense sexual pleasure and orgasms than their peers, the Daily Mail reported. ‘We’re not saying less sexual activity or satisfaction, but sensitivity,’ senior author Dr Piet Hoebeke, from Ghent University Hospital, said. The practice is common in the US, with three-quarters of men having the procedure for non-religious reasons. However, it is rare in the UK, with a rate of just 6 percent, according to World Health Organisation figures. Some religions, such as Judaism and Islam, consider circumcision part of religious practice. British doctors said that although it can reduce the risk of some types of infection, the risks associated with routine circumcision outweigh any potential benefits.

The latest study surveyed 1,369 men over the age of 18, who responded to leaflets handed out in train stations across Belgium. The men were asked whether they were circumcised, and were then asked to rate how sensitive their penis was, how intense their orgasms were and whether they experience any pain or numbness when they are aroused.

Overall, 310 men who took the survey were circumcised, and 1,059 were not. Each rated how sensitive their penis was on a scale from 0 to five, with higher numbers being the most sensitive. Uncircumcised men reported an average sensitivity score of 3.72 when they or their partner stroked the head of their manhood compared to 3.31 amongst circumcised men.

Uncircumcised men also reported more intense orgasms. One possible explanation for any potential difference in sensitivity is that a man’s foreskin may protect his penis’s head from rubbing against underwear and clothing. The researchers wrote that it’s possible that friction makes the head of the penis thicker, drier and ultimately less sensitive The researchers also found circumcised men were more likely to report more pain and numbness during arousal than uncircumcised men, which Dr Hoebeke said is likely due to scar tissue.

    It’s bullshit. A person who was circumcised before is adulthood or when he was a child cannot tell the difference.

    Who says the pleasure is less for a circumcised man, its all in the mind not the organ.
    In fact if there is less sensation in the start it may help in delay to meet the point of woman
    Men are programmed to 3-5 min. while women are 12-20 min.
    Its disgusting to explode in 3 min with a lot of sensation and then your woman running to a circumcised man who can last longer.

      It’s not “bullshit” that if you cut off nerve endings, you have less sensitivity. Sorry.
      Sure, “it’s all in the mind”, unless your glans gets calloused from rubbing against clothes for years. Of course this can negatively affect sexual pleasure, and in fact, it DOES.

    *Gasp* You mean cutting off a highly innervated part of your genitals has a negative impact on sexual pleasure? What a shocker!

    I was circumcised in 1947, at the age of 5 months, I don’t know why. Masturbation, and later, intercourse were never easy, lubrication was always needed if I wanted it to be comfortable. From the age of 40 or so, intercourse gradually became less satisfying, until I was 60 when I ceased to have orgasms due to numbness although the rest of my body is normally sensitive everywhere else.
