Post-Circumcision Sexual Sensitivity Self-Test

How Much of Your Sexual Sensitivity Has Been Cut Away?

A circumcised man can assess how important his missing skin is by testing his remaining sexually sensitive tissue as follows:

  • In an aroused state, caress the skin downwards, starting from the end of the penis.

  • When your stroke crosses the scar line, note the stark difference in sensitivity. The amount of sensitive area you have remaining between the scar line and the glans is just a sample of what you had before your circumcision.

    This sensitive region is normally much larger and folded inside the foreskin in the intact male, where it is moist and protected from constant stimulation. After circumcision, what remains of this region is exposed, dried out, and greatly desensitized.

Child circumcision was designed in an attempt to reduce the sexual appetite by reducing the amount of pleasure sexual stimulation can provide you.

Today, the usual medical treatment for a tight foreskin is stretching, not circumcision.

"The prepuce is a highly enervated and vascularized genital structure. It is entirely lined with the peripenic muscle sheet. Specialized ecoptic sebaceious glans on the inner preputial surface produce natural emollients and lubricants necessary for normal sexual function. The primary orgasmic triggers are found in the prepucutial orifice and frenulum. When unfolded, the prepuce is large enough to cover the length and circumference of the erect penis and acts as a natural sheath through which the shaft glides during coitus. Only the presence and functions of the prepuce allow for physiologically normal coitus to occur as designed by nature.

"Males and females alike have an inherent human right to the integrity of the reproductive organs with which nature provided them."
