Circumcision and Penis Sensitivity

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, July 23, 2019, In : Men's Health 

There’s an old wives’ tale that circumcision can lead to a decreased level of penis sensitivity. The idea is that since the head of the penis is exposed instead of covered by foreskin, the tissue becomes harder over time, leading to a more difficult process of getting hard and then feeling the pleasure of self or partner stimulation. When Canadian scientists tested the sensitivity of circumcised and intact penises to touch, heat and pressure, they found that having foreskin doesn't increa...

In Islam, it is called Khitan and is performed in a hospital before a boy hits puberty.

When Is Circumcision Necessary? What Men Need to Know

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, June 16, 2018, In : Men's Health 

While it’s typically done as an infant, many men opt to undergo a circumcision later in life. Having a circumcised member is fairly common in the U.S.; among men between the ages of 14 to 59, 81 percent are circumcised. That overwhelming number may make a man question: is circumcision necessary?

While most of those circumcisions happen within days of a baby boy’s birth, more and more often, men are choosing to make this decision in adulthood. Ultimately, circumcision is a personal choi...

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, June 7, 2018, In : Men's Health 

All men will deal with penis problems at some point in their life, but those that are uncircumcised have a host of issues that they’re especially vulnerable to. Because of the attached foreskin, uncircumcised men are more likely to deal with bacteria and infections than if they were circumcised. Luckily, most of these issues can be easily combated with simple daily cleansing of the penis and underneath the foreskin.

Here are some of the most common problem that uncircumcised men deal wit...

Those Penis Bumps May be MC, Not Warts

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, December 12, 2016, In : Men's Health 

STIs are bad news, plain and simple, and even the "milder" ones are something a man tries to avoid. That’s why sometimes when a guy looks down at his privates and discovers he has penis bumps, he may get a trifle tense and worried. After all, he thinks he has been so careful to practice good penis care and now he thinks he has genital warts adorning his manhood. But here’s some good news: it may turn out that those supposed genital warts are nothing more than molluscum contagiosum (or MC...

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, October 22, 2016, In : Men's Health 

Today close to 55% of male babies in the U.S. are circumcised before they leave the hospital; back in the 1980s, the number was at a whopping 85%. That means that today, there are a lot of adult men walking around with a circumcised penis. Many of those circumcisions were performed in the interest of good penis care, with the belief that a circumcised penis is easier to clean. Some of those were performed for religious reasons. And in some cases, circumcised fathers simply wanted the assuran...

The Penis Foreskin: A Woman's Guide

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, September 19, 2015, In : Men's Health

In such areas, women rarely come into contact with a foreskin and so could benefit from a short guide to this body part. Although there is ongoing (and sometimes fierce) debate as to whether being circumcised or intact is "better" or has a positive impact on penis health, most intact men are quite satisfied with having a ...

Uncircumcised Penis Myths - Get the Facts Straight

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, June 27, 2015, In : Men's Health 

A man with an uncircumcised penis in the U.S. gets a raw deal in many ways, at least when it comes to common conceptions about what he’s packing. There are many great things about having foreskin, but cultural myths have influenced opinions about penile hygiene and aesthetics that give the sheath a bad rap. But so long as a man practices routine penis care, his tool is likely not only healthy, but quite lovely to behold, foreskin and all. Getting to that realization requires dispelling the...

For most men, the decision as to whether or not to be circumcised is made by their parents when they are newborns, informed by certain ideas about penis care. Few men elect to go under the knife later on in life unless a rare medical condition occurs. It’s important for intact men to know the facts about the uncircumcised penis...

Circumcision is a touchy subject, to be sure, but there are some penis care issues that this surgery can address. These are just a few of the common concerns men cite when they're asked why they'd choose to go under the knife to obtain a circumcised penis.

1) Persistent Odor

The foreskin works a little like a wrapper, protecting the glans (head) of the penis from contact with rough surfaces. But as that glans is nestled inside its shell, it's shedding skin cells and emitting all sorts of...

Avoiding Foreskin Problems through Proper Care of the Uncircumcised Penis

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, August 25, 2014, In : Men's Health 

The foreskin is a double layer of tissue made up of smooth muscle, mucus membranes, skin, nerves and blood vessels. It covers the penis in uncircumcised men and provides a layer of protection for the glans. Because it contains a large number of nerve cells, the foreskin can be very sensitive and provide a great deal of pleasure. On the other hand, when foreskin problems occur, they can be quite painful, and in some cases, they can cause lasting damage to the penis. By practicing appropriate ...

For decades, circumcising infant males has been something of a norm in the United States. However, in more recent years, many parents have elected not to have this procedure performed on their newborns.

The Uncircumcised Penis Debate - Are Woman For or Against?

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, February 6, 2014, In : Men's Health 

When it comes to the male anatomy, there are two distinctive ways that the actual penis itself can appear: with or without a foreskin. Sure, a man can try all sorts of tricks to see what makes him look bigger, longer or more attractive, but by the time a man reaches adulthood he is probably pretty used to the equipment that does - or perhaps doesn’t - come with his package. However, even with only two choices out there, the decision on whether or not to circumcise baby boys is one fretted ...
