Circumcision May Not Impact Sexual Sensation

Science Daily — According to a new study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, sexual sensation in circumcised and uncircumcised men may not be so different after all. The research, performed in the Department of Psychology of McGill University in Montreal, consisted of genital sensory testing conducted on circumcised and uncircumcised men during states of sexual arousal and non-arousal. Results showed that no difference between the two groups was found in sensitivity to touch or pain.

“This study suggests that preconceptions of penile sensory differences between circumcised and uncircumcised men may be unfounded,” says Kimberley Payne, Ph.D, principal author of the study.

Did you notice in the write-ups how they measured only 20 men at 2 points (and not including the foreskin). Compare that to the results published earlier this year where they measured 100s of men at 17 spots each, and they found that the 5 most sensitive spots are on parts amputated in circumcision.

It's quite obvious circumcision is destructive.

HIS body, HIS decision.

Well, if I would be the one to choose when I was a child I would chose not to get into circumcision. But I have no choice before... it is because of the tradition that pushes us into circumcision.

And now, I learned that it doesn't matter anymore...
