If you’ve ever wondered whether or not circumcised penises experience more pleasure than uncircumcised penises, wonder no more. The answer is no.
A newly published study in The Journal of Urology examined 30 circumcised and 32 uncircumcised men, whose ages ranged between 18 and 37. Researchers looked into everything from warmth detection, tactile detection, and pain threshold. In addition, the men were surveyed on intercourse satisfaction, sexual desire, orgasm function, and overall satisfaction. No differences were detected.
“We directly tested whether circumcision is associated with a reduction in penile sensitivity by testing tactile detection, pain, warmth detection, and heat pain thresholds at multiple sites on the penis between groups of healthy (neonatally) circumcised and intact men,” explained the study’s lead author Jennifer Bossio, PhD candidate in Clinical Psychology of the Department of Psychology, Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada. “This study indicates that neonatal circumcision is not associated with changes in penile sensitivity and provides preliminary evidence to suggest that the foreskin is not the most sensitive part of the penis.”
We suppose that’s great news for uncircumcised guys and the men and women who love them.
