Do You Prefer Sex With a Circumcised or Uncircumcised Man?

There's been a big push in Africa to get men circumcised in order to reduce their risk of contracting HIV. A recent study dedicated to evaluating the health benefits of male circumcision in Uganda decided to go further and see how the practice impacted a patient's sex life. The results show that 40 percent of women said that they had more satisfying sex after their partner was circumcised. (Note: 57 percent reported no change and three percent said sex was less satisfying.)

Women credited a variety of factors for their increase in pleasure, including improved hygiene, a longer period before their partner climaxed, and an increased sex drive from their partner.

I've heard anecdotal evidence to support a wide range of opinions on the topic. Some women say sex is much better when a man is au naturel, while others are turned off by the foreskin. And some women I know don't have an opinion either way. What about you?

*facepalm* Beery, nice bulls*** you got there. While I prefer an uncircumcised men, spreading lies does NOT help the cause. "A circumcised penis damages every vagina it enters." Jesus...

This is getting all rather silly. When we meet someone we don't have a choice as to whether they have been circumcised or not and usually neither do they. So lets concentrate on the pleasure of sex rather than this debate.

I can change my answer now... I don't care either way. I'm not "grossed out" by either. I'm more concerned about the man attached to it :P I lean in the direction of uncircumcised and if I stay with my current partner long term, I will not be circumcising my boys. :)

Hiding, did you realize you made a typo and said swallow instead of shallow? LOL. And yeah, what you said was completely appropriate. It's a preference thing.

I just went back to check what I was being called out on. I don't think I said anything particularly disturbing. I've never had sex with a man who wasn't circumcised. What the hell do you want from me? I have nothing to compare. Most men in the US are circumcised. I never even said whether or not I agree with it. I happen to not agree with it, but I'm not kicking anyone out of bed.

I have seen both and find both attractive. However I have only made love to circumcised men (not due to that fact, but it just happened that way) so I am not a valid judge. I can't imagine that it would matter either way though if I loved the man. Never thought of this as a decision criteria.

I am 100% behind the health benefits of circumcision, though after speaking to over 2000 men via polls, interviews, and online discussion, some circumcised, some cut, I understand that uncircumcised men *do* have more sensitivity. Though that isn't necessarily a good thing. I've spoken to them about the differences, and this is what they've disclosed: 1) Cut men have fewer nerves and more scar tissue, but this can be good for sexual longevity. (A little scar tissue can help him last longer) 2) Uncut men have their mucus membrane intact (no keratin buildup), but this can be less pleasant for women during fellatio, and MORE pleasant during intercourse. 3) An uncircumcised penis is also minutely thicker, which is frequently better for female partners. 4) A cut penis is frequently regarded as 'cleaner' and 'more attractive,' which is why circumcised men are widely featured in North American adult films. This media focus also makes women more familiar and at ease with the sight of one. 5) Men around the world are generally uncircumcised, but in places where condoms are frowned upon, or difficult to come by, circumcision is marginally better for the mitigation of HIV and other STIs. 6) Permanent removal of the foreskin is a surgical procedure, and really should be chosen by the male at an appropriate age, if possible. 7) USE CONDOMS, PEOPLE! Sorry, that's my mantra. As a sexual educator and disability-rights advocate, i spend a LOT of time chanting about condoms and safer sex. In short, it really does come down to personal preference and the man attached to the penis in question. Personally, I got married to my husband based on his personality, intelligence, charisma, looks, and interests. Genitalia came later. ;)
