Uncutting

Women who have only had sex with circumcised men may not know what they are missing. According to surveys in medical literature, women reported that they were significantly more likely to have vaginal dryness during intercourse with circumcised men than genitally intact men. A medical journal survey of women who had comparative sexual experience included 138 responses. Other things being equal, on a scale of ten, they rated genitally intact men 8.03 and circumcised men 1.81. With circumcised partners, women were less likely to have one or multiple vaginal orgasms, and their circumcised partners were more likely to have a premature ejaculation. Circumcision was also connected with vaginal discomfort. Women were less likely to “really get into it” and more likely to “want to get it over with” if their partner was circumcised.

The results can be explained. The foreskin, as previously mentioned, is a moveable, double-layered sleeve. During intercourse, it glides up and down the penile shaft, reducing friction and retaining vaginal secretions. Without the foreskin, the skin on the penile shaft rubs against the vaginal wall, resulting in friction and increasing the need for artificial lubrication. The circumcised man has less sensitivity and requires deeper and harder thrusting to try to compensate, further increasing the friction.

With circumcised partners, surveyed women were more likely to feel unappreciated, distanced, disinterested, frustrated, and discontented. When their partners were not circumcised, women were more likely to feel intimate with their partners, relaxed, warmth, mutual satisfaction, and “complete as a woman,” and the greater sexual satisfaction benefited the relationship. To be clear, this does not mean that women cannot have a satisfying, emotional and sexual relationship with a circumcised man. Other things being equal, it means that such a relationship may be likely to be even more satisfying if the man were not circumcised.

How Male Circumcision Harms Women (via feministsaresexist)

my piv sexual experiences thus far have only been with intact men (including one with phimosis), only one of which i’ve had sexual contact with sans condom (not the one with phimosis). i imagine being with a circ’d man is much like when my partner is using a condom, as it gives no mobility to the foreskin and i think the lubricant in them also affects my natural vaginal secretions. point being, i much prefer sex without a condom or other barrier method, as everything works like it’s “supposed to”. trust me i have no hate for circ’d men as most of them were robbed of their precious penile skin as babies (and i can’t hate the ones who do it by choice or out of medical necessity, of course!) but in all honesty (and judging by how serious he and i are, i truly hope it lasts a lifetime) i would prefer to keep my sexual experiences limited to intact men (er, man). 

another of my $0.02 of many on the subject of circumcision, and i really don’t know why many feminists support this practice still
