Are the dynamics of sex different when a circumcised guy has sex vs. when an uncircumcised guy has sex?

Do circumcised guys have to have sex harder and faster because of the lack of the foreskin sleeve?

...because of the lack of foreskin providing a double gliding motion, and also because they're less sensitive in the head because of the keratinization (thickening) of the head (glans), so they need to thrust repeatedly harder and faster to acheive more sensation?

This is a serious question because it deals with whether circumcision is not a good thing to do because it changes the fundamental dynamics of sex.

    I grew up in Australia when most boys were cut but happened to have a few intact friends. I saw one of them masturbating when I was about 12 and realised that I was missing out big time. I deeply resent what my parents had done to me. There is no worse feeling in the world than knowing you've been mutilated for no good reason and that you will never feel the full sexual sensations that should be your birth right.

    Most circumcised males have no idea what they have lost and are not good sources of information about which is better. They don't know how a foreskin works

    and mistakenly think it would get in the way. Usually only circimcised males who have actually observed how an intact male masturbates, either in reality or in porn, have any idea that their own penis does not work as well as a natural one.

    Circumcision is the amputation of the foreskin, not extra skin but an integral part of the penis; measuring 15 square inches in an adult, over half the penile skin, including the most sensitive parts of the penis. The foreskin is packed with nerve endings, special anatomical features like the ridged band and has a unique elastic gliding action, allowing it to slide on itself and act like lube. This action is what most males use to masturbate with. Circumcised males use what skin they have left, except those who are cut so tightly that they have to use lube or just rub it dry. The intact male can stroke the entire length of his penis using his foreskin and also has the option to use lube too, if he wants to. During intercourse the foreskin acts like lube on entry and may act as a dam, preventing lubricating secretions escaping from the vagina. In one study women reported that sex with an intact partner was gentler and more satisfying since he doesn't have to thrust as hard to feel enough stimulation. Removing the foreskin turns the surface of the glans from an inner mucous membrane to outside skin. Newly circumcised adults usually go through some weeks of intense discomfort as the glans is constantly exposed to rubbing on clothing, until it develops a thicker keratin layer and becomes less sensitive.

    I detest being circumcised and can only guess at the sensations and functionality I have missed out on all my life.

      The sensations are hardly noticeable. I got cut at 26 and have never regretted my decision. Being cut is far superior to having an ugly foreskin.

    Cutting off parts of the penis changes the dynamics of the penis and that it therefore changes the dynamics of sex. Much is said about desensitizing the glans. However, the glans is relatively insensitive, particularly to fine touch. It also goes a bit numb upon erection. As such, only having the glans for sensing is a problem. Circumcision destroys about 20000 fine touch and stretch nerve endings. It takes away the inner foreskin and the ridged band and often the frenulum. These parts of the penis are great for ones pleasure including pleasure from touch and stretch (that is why nutters like Kellogg wanted to chop em off, to curtail masturbation). These parts do directly contacts the vagina wall for very great pleasure all around. The only touch organ possessing as rich erogenous innervation as the foreskin is the clitoris. Circumcision deprives man of 2/3ds of the main erogenous zone constituted of the foreskin and the glans. Besides the loss of sensation (pleasure) the dynamics change is significant. This is the loss of the movement of the foreskin from being slipped all the way, or almost all the way, back to the base of the penis, and also slipped forward beyond the glans. If some adult really wants to do this to themselves, after understanding what they will lose, that is their issue. However, it is not acceptable to change the dynamics of the penis of someone else. It is not OK to take away erogenous tissue and remove capacity for pleasure from another human for LIFE.

    Circumcision does indeed change the fundemental dynamics of sex. Humans can only have natural sex, what we evolved to, with a natural penis.

    It does indeed remove about 20000 fine touch and strecth nerve endings and a "cut" penis does not have a huge amount of the natural sensing capacity -- there is a loss of capacity for pleasure for good. I don't see how this change from nature can be good for either male or female. Natural; men do not do it sooner, the sensation does not cause PE but instead provides good feedback and helps time orgasm. In fact, cut men have more PE problems as some get wrong signals from the circumcision scar (the scar is the most sensitive part of the cut male) that causes premature ejaculation.

    There is a need for Americans to catch up with the rest of the advanced world, that DOES NOT do this to baby boys. The foreskin is not just skin and does not just protect the glans(head). Circumcision is now known to ablate the most sensitive parts of the male genitals. This surgery takes away the main male pleasure zones with about 20000 fine touch and stretch nerve endings amputated. The foreskin has several parts including the ridged band that is great for ones pleasure (that is why nutters like Kellogg wanted to chop em off, to curtail masturbation), Masturbation is important for a mans physical and mental health. The ridged band directly contacts the vagina for very great pleasure all around. The dynamics of sex and the actual mechanism of the penis are drastically changed by circumcision. The foreskin can normally be slipped all the way, or almost all the way, back to the base of the penis, and also slipped forward beyond the glans. This wide range of motion is the mechanism by which the penis and the orgasmic triggers in the foreskin, frenulum, and glans are stimulated. The only touch organ possessing as rich erogenous innervation as the foreskin is the clitoris. Circumcision deprives man of 2/3ds of the main erogenous zone constituted of the foreskin and the glans.

      sorry to disagree with you but I have experienced life both ways and being cut is far superior to having an ugly foreskin.

    Not just the "foreskin sleeve," as you put it.

    The foreskin is not just "extra skin," but it is very specialized tissue. The foreskin has about 20,000 specialized nerve endings, and the inner foreskin is mucosal in nature to retain the sensitivity/smoothness of the glans and surrounding tissues. It's what nature intended to give the male the most complete sexual experience----in both feeling and function.

    Obviously the vascular and neural damage that is circumcision will diminish a male's feeling and function.

    The disruption of normal sensory feedback will inhibit not only the enjoyment of sex, but control over ejaculation. And the damage from circumcision varies wildly, with the scars from the wounds located anywhere on the penis from just below the glans to 1/2 or even 2/3 of the way down the penile shaft. Because the damage is so extensive, and can be so different from one individual to the other, the resulting lack of sensory input can result in either premature ejaculation, or even the inability to ejaculate in normal sex.

    Damaging a penis doesn't increase sexual ability-----that isn't so hard to comprehend.

    And as far as the female is concerned, the dry, rough texture of the circumcised penis, combined with the lack of a foreskin's motion during sex is more abrasive to the vaginal walls.

    Nothing good comes from circumcision, except to the unscrupulous doctors who make money from mutilating males.

    Circumcision is a fraud and a hoax.

    A foreskin is not a birth defect; it is a birthright.

    The foreskin is also beneficial for the female too as it provides a natural lubrication, leading to less dryness and friction. The forskin also 'bunches up' a little and stimulates the nerves at the entrance to the vagina, where the elusive g-spot is. Women dont know what they are missing out on by refusing entire men. Esp when the reasons they give (unclean, ugly) are unfounded and based purely on ignorance and misinformation.

    Edit: Steve X: Cant feel his partner if he's entire??? what on earth are you going on about about now?? You really are grasping at straws to justify your own disappointment in your body arent you? Not to mention the inferior sex life that you have decided that your own sons will have. Congratulations.

    If you are not circumcised, stay that way until you have sufficient sexual experience to make a determination of any problems. As far as sensation goes, most of the sensation is on the underside of the tip (the glans). There is no thickening in that area and the sensitivity is high.

    Premature ejaculation can be cured with natural methods. One really good one you can follow is

    When a man is suffering from premature ejaculation, he is often climaxing before his partner and in the case of most men it is difficult if not impossible for them to continue intercourse after ejaculating. That’s because chemicals are released when a man ejaculates and these are the same chemicals that make a person feel sleepy and/or not aroused. It’s not that they have suddenly lost interest; just their brain is telling them that the sex is over. This effect is more prominent after intercourse than after masturbation because intercourse actually causes four times more of these chemicals to be released. If premature ejaculation occurs frequently, it can lead to embarrassment for the man and sexual frustration for both partners.

    well just about every one has told you all the fact as to why circumcision is a bad idea and they are correct

    as for sex it's self (speaking from a women's point of view) not only as someone else said does it feel much better during vaginal penetration but its also better for oral, anal and best of all to play with it's so much easier and more interesting

    but from the female point of view there is another advantage that is that because circumcised men have lost so many nerve endings that during masturbation by a female the amount of feeling which they receive at the penis is not enough so they have to fantasise at the same time which means they tend to be very quiet as this takes concentration to run sexual fantasy's through their head so there is a distinct lack of intimacy (and communication)whilst a female is masturbating a circumcised male which if you interrupt it sets his orgasm back.

    where as the natural male is free to express his pleasure with moans, movement and talk

    plus there is also the visual element with a circumcised penis it's just "there" nothing moves nothing changes it like rubbing a dildo

    where as the natural penis is exciting it moves (foreskin)opening and closing over the gland watching it slide back and forth over the smooth purple gland is so much more pleasurable for the female

    so you see circumcision does not only rob the poor guy on the physical side but it spoils it for the female both physically mentally and emotionally

    if you have your foreskin do not part with it for anyone kid 85% of the world do not mutilate their children so that means 85% of females around the world prefer the natural penis

    there is a guy who comes on here and because he supports circumcision but has no logical argument to support his claim (because there isn't one) he reverts to childish name calling and one of his favourite things he says is " who wants an anteater between their legs" WELL I DO YES PLEASE ME ME ME YES PLEASE!!!!!! any day rather than circumcised one.

    As a bisexual uncut man who has had many experiences, with both men (cut & intact) & women, the arguments you present are so absolutely without basis & only reveal a guy who made a decision (probably peer pressure/insecurity) and now is trying desperately & pathetically to justify it with lies. Sad.
