This is a personal bugbear of mine. I was circumcised as a medical emergency more than 20 years ago (I’d zipped my foreskin up in my jeans – long story). When the doctor suggested circumcision would be a safer option than trying to repair my foreskin, I panicked a little because I’d read all about how much sensitivity circumcision robs from a penis. The doctor couldn’t/wouldn’t guarantee me anything, but I eventually I went with his suggestion.
Well – I’m still waiting for my sensitivity to disappear. There’s certainly a sensation change, but no less or more than when I had a foreskin. I enjoy the sensations I get now, a lot more than when I had my foreskin (which worked perfectly well).
I live in western Europe in a non English speaking country. While circumcision is not nearly as uncommon or unusual here as the internet would have us believe, it’s still the minority status. It seems to be universally accepted that circumcised men last longer in bed because they feel less. Almost everything I’ve read or watched about circumcision over here references this ‘fact’. Drives me crazy. First, I’m really against blanket statements anyway. Secondly, it’s presented as gospel, usually by people with no way of knowing what they’re talking about. I can only speak for myself but, as someone who used to be quite fond of his foreskin, I would never want it back knowing what I know now.
Just needed to get this off my chest after a conversation I had today.
