As you know any thread which mentions circumcision (and many that don't) devolves into pro and con wars.

Why does it need those? There are many questions a poll could ask, but the point of this one (as the title, the question, and the options imply) is to determine the proportion of intact guys who can get an orgasm through their foreskin alone.
The puzzling part of this is that even if the person is only touching the foreskin, including pulling at the end and pulling it past the head (the lengthy overhang skins) there will be some pressure on the penis shaft itself. The only way to truly and fully masturbate by stimulating foreskin only would be by cutting the skin loose and open like a sheet of paper. Anything else there is some pressure to the penis shaft.
That is not the only way, and it wouldn't really be practical, would it? Other options suggested are
- anaesthetising the glans
- covering the glans with some kind of shield
- (long foreskins only) stimulating only the acroposthion (the overhang) - only sideways, to be quite sure.
- but each involves something more like a laboratory experiment and hence would be harder to carry out. This quick-and-dirty self-selected poll is just to roughly test the hypothesis. As scientists love to say (in the hope of getting more funding) "more study is needed".
