I've never really posted on lpsg before, but I've been a long time "guest" (used to be a fan of Madame Zora, for instance). I'm well aware of the endless circumcision debates on here, but I thought I would just add my two cents, seeing as how I am in a fairly unique position on the matter . . . I have just recently had a circumcision. My parents decided not to have me cut when I was born and, obviously, for a while it was not an issue. It wasn't really until puberty that I even knew I was different from most other guys (in America, that is). I finally decided to get cut to once and for all avoid all these problems . . . and for me at least it has turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Here, as I have found are the main benefits / differences I have noticed: 1. Cleanliness: I know that a lot of uncut men will swear that they had no hygiene issues at all, but I did. When I took a shower in the morning, a lot of times I could notice a smell by the afternoon or evening. So, most days I would take at least two showers to take care of this, and in the shower I would have to wash under my foreskin like four or five times to get rid of any smell. I am a very clean person and I hated the fact that my penis was so unclean, seemingly no matter how much I washed. It has only been a little more than a month since I was cut and I can already say that the difference in cleanliness is literally like night and day. Now, I notice no bad smell whatsoever from my penis, and I can keep it clean just as easily as I clean any other part of my body. This is a tremendous relief for me, as not only is it far easier and quicker to stay clean, it means that I don't have any apprehensions of what my partner may encounter (see below). 2. Sexual Sensation: The other benefit that I have noticed is the difference in sensation. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved the way my foreskin felt. Many times I could orgasm from stimulating my foreskin alone. I even got to the point where I could have what what I would call "rapidly consecutive" orgasms, maybe not technically multiple o's, but I could stay in the climax stage and have four or five o's every twenty or thirty seconds. All this I originally attributed to my foreskin, since most men I knew couldn't do this and they were almost all cut. Well, I can now say that this wasn't the case. I'm pretty much healed up by now and have started having sex and jacking off again. The sensations I get are just as wonderful as before (maybe more so), but in a different way. I can still come just as powerfully and intensely as before, it just feels slightly different. The way I would describe it is that when I was uncut, the "locus" of pleasure was in my foreskin, while certainly the rest of my penis felt great too. Now, I would say I feel the same amount of pleasure, it's just that it is distributed much more evenly throughout my whole penis, not just mostly in the foreskin, although most of the pleasure is still around my head and the skin just under it. When I was uncut, I really didn't enjoy oral. Now, I think maybe I'm getting too pushy with my gf becuase I love getting oral so much now lol. Obviously I loved sex when I was uncut, but now it feels better to me and I love the feeling more now because I feel it more all over, not just in my foreskin. (Even psychologically it is better, because I know that what I'm feeling is literally her, not just my foreskin.) Sex is even easier, because no "adjustments" have to be made to get my foreskin rolling back and forth the right way. Jacking off, although not as easy (must use lube), even feels better too. I have a fairly tight cut and the feeling of going up and down the skin on the shaft, then up to the head (which when I was uncut was too sensitive to directly touch most of the time) is just incredible. In every way it is better. And I have found that I am still very capable of having consecutive o's too. 3. Appearance: I save this benefit for last because it is by far the most subjective. I just happen to like the way a cut penis looks. It's just my personal preference and I wanted my penis to look that way. And fortunately for me, most of the women I've been with have preferred cut to uncut as well. I know that plenty of people (men and women) prefer a natural penis, but it's just not for me. Now, I don't have to feel ashamed of the way my penis looks. There will never again be any awkward moments when I am with someone for the fisrt time and I have to explain that I'm uncut, hoping that they're not going to freak out and run away. To put it simply, being cut makes me feel good about myself, whereas before I was apprehensive. ------------ I'm putting all this out here becaue in all of the debates I've read / heard about circumcision, rarely if ever do you hear from someone who has experienced both (as an adult) and can offer a side by side comparison between cut and uncut. I have lived and loved as bot uncut and now cut. And I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that I vastly prefer being circumcised. My parents could have saved me a lot of money (and a little pain) by having me cut at birth, but late is better than never. I fully respect those that feel differently (I did too, at one point), and I'm not trying to insult or demean uncut men. It's just, from one man's direct experience, being cut is in every way better. I absolutely love being circumcised. If you're are interested, there are some before and after pictures in my gallery, to show the difference. I apologize that some of them are really blurry or taken in a bad setting, but these are the only ones I have from before I was cut.
