There's been a bunch of penis threads started by women on INTJf lately, so figured I'd ask this.

I like either. More important is who is attached to it.

Circumcised...but only by a narrow shave, so to speak.

And just as a side addition, how many of you went through a good deal of your life seeing one penis and assuming it was how they all looked and then when you saw the other version (Circumcised or uncircumcised) and thought it was a diseased penis?

I grew up surrounded by circumcised penises (well, not literally, but of the ones that were around they were circumcised) and my first boyfriend was not circumcised. I didn't know for weeks because it was ALWAYS erect when I saw it so the foreskin was 'back' anyway. It wasn't until I mentioned that I was glad he was circumcised that I was embarrassingly set straight....and I thought he must have been wrong and misunderstood what the word meant, so compounded my error by EXPLAINING it to him. And then insisting that I must see it flaccid, which was kinda tricky....

I'd seen pictures of uncircumcised penises and they were all obscured by a turtle neck jumper like piece of skin. Apparently the pictures I saw were not of erect ones.

So no, I didn't think it was diseased at all. I thought it was circumcised.

The physical look is not important. What is important is what the person can do with it to please me.

However, and this is going to be bad.... Uncircumsize is best for orgasms. Thats just my experience. I guess skin against clitoris sparks fire. But i also know circumcised men are just as capable if they master how to use it.

Dam... Do not beat me up yet, i cannot deny the differences.

But just for the record, i only had 1 uncircumsized men in my early 20s and 1 men circumsized that somehow mastered giving an orgasm with no foreplay.

We were taught the difference in our health class in grade school, so I knew that there was a difference.

It wasn't the first time I'd seen/messed around with a penis and the one prior had been circumcised, so I was like 'COOL.'

Uncircumcised ones have always seemed shy, like they're trying to hide and need to be coaxed out or something. I have no real preference.

*Raises hand*

The first time I saw a foreskin in a porn I thought the guy's tip had been severed or was unnaturally inverted. I had always imagined a circumcised penis looked like mine, but with a glans that was twice as big. Instead you can't see the glans at all so it looks like a creepy sock puppet or something.

Circumcised, definitely. As a physician, I have seen many penises...and the circumcised ones tend to be cleaner.

Uncircumcised because (as I have ranted about at length in a thread not long ago) the idea of cutting part of a child's genital (for anything else than a medical reason) is abhorrent to me. I'd rather not be reminded of that when I see my partner naked, thank you very much.

Aside from this I've never been with a circumcised guy. But I can't imagine how it would be better. And I'm not sure how you're supposed to give a handjob to someone without a foreskin. (Well actually I think I know ; you use lube... it's just easier not to have to use it...)

Ah, I get it. You think that patients should mutilate themselves for your convenience? This should be the prudent alternative:

Circumsized, but it's not a huge deal. I've been thus far quite disappointed that uncircumsized penises don't live up to the myth: more sensitive (in this case, much much LESS sensitive than cut men I've been with) and better sensation for her (feels exactly the same). The only thing that has held true is that an uncut penis smells stronger.

I don't support unnecessary surgery on babies and if I had a boy I wouldn't get him cut, but foreskins are dumb and I understand where people got the idea to cut them off in the first place.

Sad. But there are variations between individuals of course (not all men have the same sensitivities to begin with, and not all feel desensitized by circumcision). In this case I guess it's lucky that guy wasn't circumcised because it would risk making him even less sensitive than he already is.

The only thing uncircumcised men have to do is pull the foreskin back and splash some water on the head every single time he showers and before having sex (just to make sure everything is in tip top shape.) That's it as far as remaining clean and not smelly.

But, apparently, for many guys that is simply too much added work to the showering routine.

What is "uncircumcised" supposed to mean? All penises (well, all genitals in fact) have a prepuce/foreskin at birth. So intact is the standard/norm, circumcision deviates from that. Its not "uncircumcised", its intact, normal, natural etc.

In the U.K. (extrapolating from my own experience) uncircumcised is the norm; as long as the foreskin isn't really big (which I find aesthetically kind of off-putting) I don't really mind either way... I hate the idea of circumcision but I prefer the aesthetics of a circumcised penis... so I'm slightly torn, although were it only up to me, I would absolutely not have my own child circumcised.

My husband is Jewish and so I'm worried about what will happen if we ever have a baby boy - we went to premarital interfaith sessions and a huge proportion of the participants said that the circumcision decision was the biggest issue they faced in their marriages.

Is there any evidence that babies who get circumcised experience negative long-term effects compared to babies that are left uncircumcised? If so then that's probably a pretty good argument against it. If not, then I'm not sure what the big deal is. It's usually done for hygienic purposes. I myself have never particularly lamented the loss of my foreskin.

We know for a fact that many/most of the erogenous nerves in a penis are in the foreskin. Because we know this, we know that cutting those off does reduce total possible sensation. That sucks.

Of course, it is a surgical procedure, so there are side-effects associated with it as with any. Infection, scar tissue, bleeding, etc etc etc.

Men who have been circumcised do not report many negative long-term effects because, basically, they've always been that way. However men who have decreasing sexual satisfaction later in life have found that stretching the skin of the penis to mimic a foreskin protects what nerve-endings they have left, and report greater sexual satisfaction afterwards.

There are studies on the benefits/problems in regards to circumcision. I have the links if you want them. Basically it's a toss-up for men who know how to wash themselves. If one lives in a filthy area without access to bathing facilities, such as a 3rd-world area, and don't keep clean, it can lead to an elevation in UTI incidences. This is not an issue for men who shower. There is some evidence that intact penises have less incidences of transmitting/contracting STDs, if I recall correctly.

I would definitely recommend it for people with no arms and no one to ever splash some fucking water on their dick. It's definitely an urgent medical procedure, in that case. Otherwise, you just cut off this dude's fucking male clitoris.

When did it happen?

Have you ever put spit on your thumb and index finger and rubbed your own foreskin?

It sounds a little bit like "I don't really lament the loss of thing X that I never had".

Well, it's unnecessary - teach your kid to bathe properly instead.

There's a fair amount of research that suggests that uncircumcised men experience greater sensitivity during sexual activity so, yes, you are losing something, even if you are later unaware of that and so unable to miss it.

I would never get my baby girl's ears pierced just because I think they look nice, and so similarly I wouldn't remove my baby son's foreskin because I think it looks neater... for someone who isn't religious, and with a child who doesn't have some particular medical reason for being circumcised, aesthetics is the only reason to have the procedure performed. When one or both parents is religious, then I think it becomes more complicated.

There are also issues of looking different to consider - looking different to his father, looking different to all the other boys at school etc... those are things that could cause potential issues, but my instinct would be to prepare for them and make sure those things are discussed, rather than going ahead with a surgical procedure just to make sure your child looks the same as other people.

Rates are dropping worldwide, except among jews, of course.

I would definitely be interested in those links.

I suppose if it does increase sexual satisfaction to have one and the hygienic issues are minimal then that's a pretty good argument against having it removed involuntarily.
