Circumcised vs. Uncircumcised – Which Is Better?


Circumcision of the male penis has been practiced for thousands of years, often related to cultural and religious traditions. But whether you’re “cut” or “uncut”, is one better in terms of health, how it feels, or sex? Circumcision is a medical procedure that removes the foreskin from the head of the penis, exposing the glans. Though its exact origin and intent is still debated, by the time it became common in the English-speaking world (the 19th century), it was actually used in order to reduce sexual pleasure and as a deterrent to masturbation, which was believed to cause many mental and physical illnesses. But the medical benefits of circumcision came into question in the late 1960s when the research community came out against it, claiming that there was no clear medical benefit, and the risk for severe blood loss, infection, or death was high. This resulted in a decline in circumcised men. In the U.S., circumcision rates in hospitals dropped from 64.5% in 1979 to 58.3% in 2010, but worldwide, only around 33% of males are estimated to be circumcised. However, even more modern research has shown that it can reduce the risk of developing penile cancer and infections such as syphilis, gonorrhoea, and herpes. It can also reduce HIV risk by up to 60%. A study done in Uganda involving heterosexual couples where one partner was HIV positive showed that none of the circumcised men received HIV over the 30 months, while 40 out of 137 men that were not circumcised ended up developing HIV. This evidence holds true across Sub-Saharan Africa, but is not as clear in developed nations or between homosexual men where more studies are needed. For women, a circumcised sexual partner may have a reduced risk of HPV, thereby reducing their risk of developing cervical cancer. So, how does circumcision protect against STIs? A study completed by Dr. Price and his team at Northern Arizona University showed that one year after adult circumcision, the males ended up with 81% less bacteria on and around their penis. Dr. Price explained that, with uncircumcised men, the foreskin may be susceptible to infection because the bacteria overload could prevent specialized skin cells, known as Langerhans cells, from stimulating the immune system. However, with good hygiene, these risks can be minimized. The benefits of circumcision begin to decrease when you study sexual pleasure. Research indicates the the removal of the foreskin reduces sensitivity of the penis. The foreskin is innervated with specialized nerves that can detect light touch, like the nerves found on our fingertips and lips. The most sensitive part of the penis is found between the transition region between the external and internal part of the foreskin, which is the region exposed when the foreskin rolls back during sexual activity. Studies have shown that even the most sensitive part of a circumcised penis is not as sensitive as the foreskin. But this reduced sensitivity due to circumcision could allow men to last longer during sex. One study documented 47 men who experienced premature ejaculation. When studying before vs after circumcision, it was found that the time of ejaculation increased almost tenfold once they were circumcised, and partner satisfaction increased as well. When it comes to visual preference for circumcised or uncircumcised penises, it’s mostly based on experiences and biases. The Canadian Pediatric Association claims that, because of the low risk of infection in North America, mandatory circumcision is not warranted. However, in parts of the world where STIs are rampant, the benefits of circumcision could outweigh the risk. At the end of the day, if you live in a developed nation and are hygienic, there isn’t that big of a difference between the two.

  1. As an infant I had hyperbilirubinemia that was brought on by a staph infection from a circumcision. The effects from the hyperbilirubinemia left me with many cognitive, social and motor skill problems, many of which affect me to this day. I count myself lucky that the cognitive damage wasn’t worse and that my overall IQ was tested as slightly above average in spite of several cognitive issues that affected my academic and vocational success. I can’t help but to lament what could have been had I not have been given that needless procedure. I hope that some day infant male circumcision will be banned, but I feel like that is unlikely.

  2. I had my foreskin chopped of for medical reasons and to be honest, I prefer it without, never gets cheesy, never smells and women prefer to blow you…

  3. What they don't tell you about the study in Uganda is that they gave the circumcised group condoms and they didn't to the uncircumcised control group Eric Clopper taught me that

  4. You forgot to mention consent. Infants do not have the capacity for informed consent and therefore should not have elective, permanent surgeries performed on them. If an adult wants to get circumcised they can, but it should not be done to infants.

  5. I am so confused. I am not circumcised, however if I pull on my head it rolls down as if I am circumcised, so wtf is the issue? It naturally breaks when you’re 11-14 so that it can roll down and expose the head completely, so there are no hygene problems. My head is always steril and comfy at the same time. It happened that I fell asleep with it rolled down one night and I woke up with my head filly swollen, so I am pretty sure it is there to protect the head

  6. There is absolutely no need for any genital mutilation.
    You guys show a biased video with seldom selected studies.
    And what about Metzitzah b’peh?

  7. Imagine these guys doing a woman’s circumcision, no different, just skin, so it must be far more beneficial to have a woman circumcised, right?

  8. I think it’s the kids choice and not the parents. Stop forcing beliefs on people when they are not at the age to make decisions for themselves.

  9. There isn't a point to this debate. Circumcision isn't really necessary, and neither is the hate against it. So someone can clean better, while another has bragging rights? good for them, now carry on

  10. Ok so this is little akward but pls give me answer. I am 15 and i am "uncutted" (if u understand me lol) and most guys in my class are cutted (i hope i said it right). So what should i do?

  11. In my country child get circumsied when they are of 3 or 4 days so they wouldn't face pain and even they don't move much so it is better

  12. So my boyfriend will circumsised next week, he scared and he asked everyone, “does it hurt?” And i told him from my experience that it didn’t hurt 🍌 🍌

  13. I'm from Europe and I watched an episode of Desperate Housewives (one of the wives went behind their husbands back and decided to circumcise their baby for aesthetic reasons even though the husband was against it) I was horrified when I watched that, like it would totally be normal for a parent to do that in the States…
    You're taking something away from a BABY without knowing if it is truly necessary

  14. "Have you ever seen one that's uncut, you don't know what's going on down there, does not make you want to go downtown." – Fiona Gallagher

  15. I got it done. Best descion ever. Mind you, I couldn’t be one of those parents that force their baby to have it done. Unless they had an infection or something.

  16. YOU HAVE BEEN LIED TO ON THE BENEFITS. The tests which say that there’s an increased chance you won’t get HPV and HIV are not factually correct and tests that show an increased resistance to STDs has been done under unfair scientific scenarios. The negative effects are also far greater. A Jewish man from Harvard was fired from his job because he spoke up about this and how we’ve been brainwashed by the media and the AAP to promote a substitute for child sacrifice. https://youtu.be/FCuy163srRc watch it and learn about the injustice society we live in.

  17. But studies showed girls are way more into Circumcised rather then filthy uncircumcised. Rip to all uncircumcised alien looking weird things.

  18. Routine infant circumcision / male genital mutilation is a gross violation of a young man's freedom of choice, and bodily integrity.

  19. Hey guys who are afraid of pulling the foreskin I managed to do myself without circumcision, first pull a bit the skin where comfortable don't pull to much then do it for a few days and dont worry it won't hurt.

  20. Idiotic video. Circumcision has not been proven to give the advantages you mentioned. This video just parrots some ridiculous ideas that have been floating around. Mutilation and torture is not something appropriate for babies, children or adults.

  21. Bruh it’s the same thing idk why ppl making a fuss over it. This just shows the point ppl have come to. It’s other ppls decisions but it’s only your opinions so don’t criticize people about it.

  22. After reading the comments, I came to the conclusion that none of you actually came here to watch the video and learn something. Everyone here is just stating their own opinions, while not even referring or talking about the actual video.

  23. All my choices as a child has been by my parents.
    Circumcision: Yep
    Like men or women: WOMEN
    Extra curricular events: All the sports you can imagine.

    I can't be myself in the household.
    It sucks.
    If I ever have a son I will let it be his choice because I don't like the fact that I didn't choose any of my passions as a kid.
    I'll support him even if he doesn't
