The Difference Between Sex with a Foreskin and Without

The following draft is under review and is not yet validated by our Scientific Board. We welcome commentary and input  from scientists and clinicians to complete this blog.  No video is available at this time for viewing by general public.

In this video we can clearly see just how important the foreskin is to protect the penis and the vagina and labia during sex. 

Note the way the circumcised penis and glans has become very hardened as a result of the loss of foreskin. The foreskin protects the glans and keeps is soft, supple, moist and sensitive. 

The shaft of the penis that has been circumcised becomes dry, saggy and rough. The rough penis often drags the labia in and out and causes inflammation to the labia as well as the vaginal canal. 

Apart from the fact that the man who has no foreskin does not feel the vast pleasure of an orgasm that an intact man does, the circumcised penis is prone to sagging, tears, and irritation. 

In this video that compares sex with and without a foreskin, we admit that the voice is a little off putting, however, the video animation is such good quality that we think on balance it is worth putting in this blog. 

The bottom line is this - a circumcised man will not experience the same pleasure as an intact man, and will int fact have life long problems with his penis and glans and so will any partner.  

We know that some parents justify circumcision {{mutilation - edit this phrase as there is no consensus of the ethics of male circumcisions'}}  on the basis of trying to prevent phimosis or improving hygiene, however, phimosis can be easily treated with the Novoglan Tight Foreskin Phimosis treatment and hygiene is something that is learned.   

Let us know what you think of this animation about sex with a foreskin verses sex with a circumcised penis.
