11 Differences Between Having Sex With An Uncircumcised Penis vs. A Circumcised One

We always talk about penis size and if it matters, but what about guys who are circumcised versus those that aren’t? If you’ve had sex with both, you might know that their penises can feel a bit different. But how different? Here’s what you need to know.

The differences between sex with an uncircumcised vs circumcised penis

  1. First of all, the penises look different. Whether you like the look of a circumcised or uncircumcised penis really comes down to your preferences. They do look quite different, though, even when flaccid. An uncircumcised penis won’t display the urethra opening or the glans head. By comparison, on a circumcised penis, you’ll see both quite easily.
  2. A circumcised penis can be less responsive.  While you know your boyfriend’s orgasms are amazing, and he happens to have a circumcised penis, a study found that the most sensitive area on a circumcised penis is the scar where the circumcision had been done. Huh. This also means that the nerve endings on a circumcised penis are located further away from the skin surface as compared to an uncircumcised penis, which could be why it’s a bit less sensitive.
  3. An uncircumcised penis can feel more. During sex, an uncircumcised penis has more nerve endings located beneath the foreskin, which can make the penis feel more sensitive during sex. Basically, as the foreskin moves up and down while he’s sliding in and out of you, that can make things way more pleasurable for him.
  4. An uncircumcised penis could boost clitoral pleasure. Having sex with a guy who’s got an uncircumcised penis could feel better for you, too. It’s been said that when the foreskin on an uncircumcised penis retracts, it bunches up a bit around the penis base and this can produce some friction against the clitoris during sex, which can boost your pleasure – that’s awesome if you’re into C-gasms.
  5. A circumcised penis may feel “cleaner,” but it’s (usually) not. Since a foreskin requires a bit more maintenance from guys, you might find yourself steering towards circumcised partners instead because they’re considered to have cleaner penises. But, as long as your partner takes a bit more time to clean himself in the shower, this shouldn’t be a problem. Hey, even guys with circumcised penises could have dodgy hygiene habits.
  6. An uncircumcised penis can ruin your bedroom antics. If a man who’s got an uncircumcised penis doesn’t pay special TLC to stay clean down there, this can cause him problems as a result of how dirt, sweat, and even dead skin cells, can build up underneath the foreskin and cause a thick secretion known as smegma. It’s linked to various problems, such as balanitis, which is foreskin inflammation and can lead to discomfort, redness, itchiness, a bad odor, and pain. Yup, he might not be down for some fun.
  7. A circumcised penis can prevent premature ejaculation. Some research has found that circumcision can help to heal premature ejaculation in some men who suffer from the condition. The reason? Getting a penis circumcised makes the man last longer during sex, which also boosts sexual pleasure for them and their partners.
  8. An uncircumcised penis can be less painful during penetration. If you experience pain during sex, you might want to find a partner who has an uncircumcised penis. This is because this type of penis tends to feel softer, so you won’t feel like you have to lather on too much lube before having sex.
  9. An uncircumcised penis may increase infections. In an uncircumcised penis, it’s really easy for moisture to become trapped underneath the foreskin which can cause bacteria to thrive, as we’ve already mentioned. So, this means as the guy’s sexual partner you will have a higher risk of getting bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections, UTIs, and STDs. Yikes.
  10. A circumcised penis might struggle to become lubricated. Although a circumcised penis can be healthier and cleaner, it doesn’t always have enough natural lubrication, but the good thing is that this can be dealt with effectively by using a great lube during sex. No big deal.
  11. An uncircumcised penis could result in better blow jobs. When a guy who’s got an uncircumcised penis becomes turned on, you can use your finger to rub the area underneath the foreskin, which will boost his sexual stimulation. And, when you give him oral sex, the foreskin will feel loose, even when the penis is erect, which will be more flexible in your mouth, so you might feel that it’s more comfortable. Now you know!

Is circumcision healthy?

Some studies suggest that circumcision can have certain health benefits including reducing the risk of urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted infections (including HIV), and penile cancer. It may also make it easier to keep things nice and clean down there.

However, these potential health benefits have to be weighed against the risks and potential complications of the procedure. They can include bleeding, infection, and in rare cases, more serious complications such as excessive bleeding or damage to the penis. This is true whether it’s done soon after birth or when a guy gets older. Additionally, some argue that circumcision is a violation of bodily autonomy and shouldn’t be done without a man’s consent.

Ultimately, the decision to circumcise should be made based on individual circumstances and personal preferences. And obviously, a doctor should always be involved.
