    Default Study: Male Circumcision Reduces Sexual Pleasure, BJU Sept2006

    The effect of male circumcision on sexuality
    DaiSik Kim and Myung-Geol Pang*
    OBJECTIVE

    To prospectively study, using a questionnaire, the sexuality of men circumcised as adults compared to uncircumcised men, and to compare their sex lives before and after circumcision.
    SUBJECTS AND METHODS

    The study included 373 sexually active men, of whom 255 were circumcised and 118 were not. Of the 255 circumcised men, 138 had been sexually active before circumcision, and all were circumcised at >20 years of age. As the Brief Male Sexual Function Inventory does not specifically address the quality of sex life, questions were added to compare sexual and masturbatory pleasure before and after circumcision.
    RESULTS

    There were no significant differences in sexual drive, erection, ejaculation, and ejaculation latency time between circumcised and uncircumcised men. Masturbatory pleasure decreased after circumcision in 48% of the respondents, while 8% reported increased pleasure. Masturbatory difficulty increased after circumcision in 63% of the respondents but was easier in 37%. About 6% answered that their sex lives improved, while 20% reported a worse sex life after circumcision.
    CONCLUSION

    There was a decrease in masturbatory pleasure and sexual enjoyment after circumcision, indicating that adult circumcision adversely affects sexual function in many men, possibly because of complications of the surgery and a loss of nerve endings.

    Thanks for posting that study, I am hoping it will help me reconcile my DH to the fact that any little men of our will NOT be chopped

    Mum has been telling me this for years, apparently it was considered common knowledge when she was nursing, one of the many many reasons she doesn't approve of it being done routinely.

    Well I will be happy to read any opposing studies too, as I like to make informed decisions.
    So feel free to link to them if you want opposing views to be able to be considered

    While the groups were rather small the variety of responses is interesting... I think I'll go and look up the discussion following the article, that is always a good read... Thanks for posting that MNature. text removed by moderator
