      After a discussion last night with my girlfriends one of them speculated that because a lot of porn actors are circumcised it has probably made the procedure more desirable/trendy for adult guys, especially in the UK where it is less of a standard procedure.

      If it is true then it’s obviously good news for us females, it seems that we might have finally found a use for porn 😂

      Interesting observation. Maybe true if you live in a country where circumcision is not the norm like it is in the US.
      Two Women that I have spoken to that grew up in the UK say that when they moved to the US and start dating circumcised men they “can never date an uncircumcised man again”. My wife’s close friend from China said the same thing. So seeing a circumcised penis on “the screen” or up close makes women want that for sex and for marriage.

      I think the sight of a bare glans is a turn-on for most women, and if it’s permanently bare, so much the better, because it’s that much more of a turn on. Porn lets you get a good look at a “bald” one if you’ve never seen it before, and if you like the looks of it, you might decide you want to experience the real thing.

      i was circumsed in France at 21 before i moved to the US for grad school and I glad I was. American women definately expect that. if i wasn’t already cut and them came to the Us, i’m sure i would have done it here anyway. circumsion is not that uncommon in france. not as common as the us but i believe that it’s a higher rate than many other european countries. one of my theories is that, in part, this is because in french porn the man has been circumcised about 50% of this time so it is common to see.

      It’s definitely fair to say that the first penises I ever saw (on the Internet) were all cut. I think for most girls of my generation the same would be true. Having experienced both in person since then, it has only reconfirmed my preference for them to be circumcised.

      You are correct that visually it’s preferable, more manly/adult in my opinion and my early experience of that probably influenced my feelings. There’s obviously the additional cleanliness and lack of icky skin benefits too, which became more apparent to me when I actually got to play with one for real though.

      Our discussion was more around male perception of it being trendy. Almost like the American guys in porn have set tbe standards that guys in the UK would like to aspire to. Another friend said she’d read that it was the fastest growing adult male cosmetic procedure in Europe (hurray) so maybe there is some truth in it 🤷🏼‍♀️

        i would not be surprised if that were true. it is interesting that you say it is more masculine because the first girlfriend i had after coming to the US knew about my cirumcision as a adult and i remember her saying that she felt and uncircumcised penis on an adult still looked like a babies penis.

          If you feel there are grounds enough to ask if it’s a trend, it probably is. Often by the time a trend is noticed, it has already reached critical mass, and become unstoppable, or at least a significant force.

        Goodness me. Is this where the world now is? I am guessing by you’re comment about you’re generation that you are quite young. It betrays you’re age. I find it hard to take that cutting off a part of a man’s anatomy can now be trendy as some woman saw it in a dirty movie and like how it is! This should be a man’s decision alone without the pressure or opinion from his latest girl who will probably move on when she finds a guy with the next trend. Almost unbelievable. Very self entitled I say

          Where to start with this…I mean you’re in a section of a forum devoted to adult circumcision entitled “partners”. I was simply sharing an observation that I thought others might have an opinion on or find interesting. Bore off!!

          As for self entitlement, I think womankind has take more than its fair share of that over the years

          Franck,

          Please be respectful when you disagree. Tone matters.

          Men aren’t forced into circumcision by their partners. It’s their choice. That said, a lot of men value their partner’s happiness over their own foreskin. That is their choice to make.

          I love reading these posts. It’s a bunch of people trying to convince the rest of the world that cutting one’s penis is indeed the best decision.

          Look, if you’re an adult male and consult with a doctor and get all the facts and then decide circumcision is the best decision for you, I will be the first to wish you well.

          But to astroturf a message board with posts about porn and suggest that porn … PORN! … should be taken as the benchmark for a normal penis … Jesus. Fuck me. You guys really REALLY need to stop.

          By the way, I think you all are watching porn from the 1970s, filmed in the good ol’ US of A, where we never saw a dick we didn’t want to cut. I’m not a huge porn fan but if you look at some of the stuff … most of the stuff … shot within the last 10 years, beware: FORESKIN! Lots of foreskin, with women who REALLY know what to do with it and who will make you (i) jealous if somebody cut yours off before you had a chance to speak up for yourself and (ii) think twice about cutting it off if you still have it (unless, of course, you have a medical issue that can be treated only by circumcision).

          Anybody who would dare state a preference for, e.g., the length of a woman’s labia minora would be bar-b-queued. That’s surely fair. It’s also surely bullshit that people continue to shame foreskin and, as here, to astroturf the idea that penises with scars cut into them are the norm. Even in the US, the circ rate is steadily dropping; and in the rest of the world, save Israel, S. Korea, and the Philippines, they think our cutting fetish is creepy (which it really is). Before you know it, women will recoil at the site of a scar on a penis as they once recoiled at foreskin.

        I wouldn’t claim it was unanimous, by any stretch…and we didn’t have a vote, lol. But I think the majority of us were in agreement that, at the very least, it’s preferable!

      Here in the US it is more or less unanimous. You can pretty much count on “issues” if you’re not cut

        Do some homework before you speak up, Cal. It’s nowhere near unanimous. And it’s dropping, dropping, dropping as more and more people see this barbarous procedure for the human fights violation that it is. We are enraged at any suggestion of cutting our daughters. It’s no different when cutting our sons. (But we’ve been doing it forever? Thank about how many other human rights violations persisted for ages before people pulled their heads out of their asses.)

        I sometimes wonder if cut guys (which includes me) are trying to convince themselves that a permanent decision, made for them, really was the best thing. (“The earth is flat! The earth is flat! The earth is flat!”)

      I can believe there is something to this. Not quite the same permanence, but surely the trend of women shaving off all their pubic hair started in porn and filtered through

      Yes, both men and women are pretty “hairless” below the eyelashes in porn. Interesting idea that porn can affect even that, too, in the general population

      Porn has certainly influenced us. Peter was circumcised, fairly tightly at birth. When he was 20 (and I was 19) we watched a porn film where one of the guys was circumcised extremely tightly and had no frenulum. We both loved it immediately and thought it looked perfect, so we decided that Peter would get circumcised again to get the same result. The result is amazing. Peter’s penis has zero skin movement and looks amazing.

      Porn has undoubtedly influenced perceptions on what constitutes a ‘sexy’ penis outside the USA. Granted countries like Canada, Australia, South Africa, Israel and your Muslim countries all have a solid history of significantly high rates of circumcision in the past (Israel and muslims still do), they in the last 30 years have seen a considerable drop in circumcision rates yet there is still the perception among young people that a penis looke better circumcised. Even when it’s likely that up to 80% of boys under 30 are intact, making them an overwhelming majority and therefore the norm.
      Ask a young person to draw a penis and you can guarantee it will be shaped as if it was circumcised. Porn would have a lot of influence in this, especially now that it’s far more readily available.
      No doubt this is the case for Europe, parts of Asia, Africa and the South American continent too.
      It has to be noted that a lot of young women are far more accepting of an intact penis these days un Australia than when I was growing up in the 80’s and 90’s, and even a fair portion of those from my generation have come to be less offended by an intact penis, however there are still many who feel circumcision is preferred and still there are young women who insist a guy is to be circumcised if he is to get lucky with her and that girl could well have intact brothers.

      I don’t think circumcision has anything to do with porn, I think it’s the other way- porn knows people want circumcised penises, and that’s what they give. I’ve been with enough both ways that I know there’s a different. Sure, a guy that hasn’t been circ’d will work, but no one will buy, so they dont use him.

        Like most when i was young most porn was from the US and guys where cut, i spoke to others at the time and they said they had seen the same. I think the porn industry likes to show cut dicks as it looks sexier and when there is action there no need to pull the skin back. Hence the move to having cut guys in. Now porn has changed, not all big dicks and not all cut, but thats how the market is.
        The other interesting thing was that the Uk when i was young the uk was moving away from circumcion, so i wasn’t done, if i had perhaps i would have thought that the porn was normal.

      Dali,

      I must say I hadn’t considered it that way round. It is an interesting thought, but I am looking at it from a UK centric perspective and I think its probably fair to say that most of the porn consumed here would be American.

      I would estimate that half of the French men do watch US porn regurlarly, even though there are many other options available from all over the world, so that is a pretty profound infulence. Me. personally, i like to watch porn where the man IS circumcised, but that is something me and partner relate to better. yes, there are instances where we watch some european porn and sometime the man is cut and sometimes not, because there are other benes in the clip to find arousing, especially if i am watching with my partner. if i am by myself masturbating, i prefer that the guy is circumcised, and therefore it is mostly american porn or sometimes arab, but everyone has their own personal preference i’m sure. now that i think about it, i wonder if uncircumsed men prefer to watch porn that has in it uncircumcised men? i’ll probably never learn the answer to that question.

      Gemma,

      Hello from the UK. I agree with you on this point. I am on this website and joining this chat as a guy who has seen plenty of interest in circumcised men in straight and gay porn as well as in wider nudity in art and naturism and who is now considering getting circumcised. Something I wouldn’t have considered pre-Internet I don’t think. I have worked out that a nicely circumcised cock is more attractive and, seemingly more popular too.

        Exactly this Graham. So not only are guys like yourself seeing other guys in porn who are circumcised, but they are also discovering that girls who have seen the same prefer the look and are starting to express opinions that way. Long may it continue down this path

      I like to think it’s a circle.

      Porn is giving many people what they want to watch (i.e. circumcised guys and hairless women) because that’s what they are accustomed to.

      In turn, people who aren’t accustomed to circumcised penises and women without pubic hair see this porn and realise how attractive it is, and men being cut and women waxed then becomes more sought-after and “trendy”.

      So in that respect porn has made circumcision trendy, by exposing people to it.

      USA porn industry produces and supplies the most porn in the world. Where men are always circumcised.
      Therefore there is definitely hype and preference being communicated amongst porn consumers about circumcised penises that it is cleaner, healthier and “aesthetically pleasing” and sexier manly.
      Now more and more people wish to have a desirable characteristics of circumcised penis.
      American circumcision culture claims to be based on hygiene and cleanliness instead of religious mandate (although it started as medical practice during their war history). This is why its gaining more popularity because it has nothing to do with religion (islam/jew/catholic). :D

      I would agree that pornography,( older porn) some current shows uncircumcised, but yes most are circumcised and most women shaved. My wife has shaved labia majora for years. At 20, required medical circumcision. Our sex life increased, and yes, she did like me circumcised. I also, just find a circumcised penis aesthetically appealing. So, yes, I agree, pornography has influenced circumcision. What a great site to express views, thoughts, opinions and share. Thank you

      While i am a proponent of circumcision, i think personally that it will start going “out of fashion” because of the body rights and pro-choice movement. I guess it’s just like how almost all other body modification practices died away. The last people left with such a strong association for circumcision, apart from jews (too insignificant in numbers) are the Muslims. But they are under represented in porn anyway. Just some thoughts.

        Nur, that is an interesting thought. And one I would feel a little conflicted about. On the one hand I very much do believe that it should be a decision made by an adult man about his own body, my hope would be that the trend has now taken hold, and as RIC perhaps decreased then adult voluntary circumcision would increase by the same, if not greater rate. Possibly a futile hope, but as I say if porn has played a part in exposing a new generation of both sexes to the appeal then bravo

          One could argue that in the end, the best person to make the decision for baby is Mum.
          What I mean by this is, boys and men aren’t exactly renowned for their willingness to see the doctor about their penis, let alone volunteer to have their foreskin clamped off and cut away with a scalpel.
          The opportunity for the lifetime of benefits is in infancy, although personally, I’d wait until they were out of nappies and the foreskin completely mobile before arranging their circumcision, up to the age of 3.
          They should be circumcised by the time they start school in my opinion.
          I avoided a medically necessary circumcision on three occasions due to cowardice during my childhood and was ultimately circumcised by my own choice when I left school altogether.
          It becomes very inconvenient to schedule in such a thing when you’re working or at college/university. Life keeps getting in the way.

            I take your point Matt, but I still feel that people have the right to be upset if somebody has made that decision on their behalf. No matter how preferable the outcome might be in my eyes or the likelihood of it meaning more circumcised men in the world.

            I would just hope with positive reinforcement of the benefits: Think positive media pushes for smear tests for example, that it could tip the balance in adult men.

      Circumcised penises are simply much cleaner. Nothing can replace bathing before sex even for cut men. Just I remember how much smegma I had even with the best possible cleaning. Porn actors have also git extra long dicks and they use injections as well so it is not the real world. As long as you can satisfy your partner with your reshaped tool that what matters.

      I noticed I enjoy any sex scenes if the man is circumcised. Probably because I am also part of that group. They need more petting and lubes, but it is very erotic how the penis is pulled out only to that distance where the cut line is.

      According to studies the torpedo shape of the glans was supposed to dig out the other male’s sperm with the edges if it from the vagina.

      A neat high and tight circumcision on a smooth (shaved) and suntanned man is a very beautiful thing – made all the more popular, for men and women in my view – by current porn stars. It is a very good look.

      on top of that i have a very noticeable 2 tone scar line. some people like that look and some don’t but i lov it. it is a VERY notceable color change and line 1/3rd up the shaft and when i am in the gym locker room, it is very clear that i was circucumcised by choice as and adult.

      Hi Gemma

      Don’t really know if it’s become trendy, but maybe people are getting more familiar with the phenomenon.

      Talking for myself I certainly think the city guys in porn look much better, and prefer the watch porn were then men are cut.

      For me I don’t think porn had anything to do with wanting to get circumcised as I have been considering and fantasizing about it since my teens.
