Can Circumcision Reduce a Man's Sexual Sensitivity?
If you check out the anti-circumcision Web sites, many claim that the foreskin is a highly erogenous zone and they highlight studies showing that "intact" men have more penile sensitivity than those who have been circumcised. Still, most experts warn parents not to let this influence their decision. "We do circumcisions on adult men in our clinic every day, and most do not have any complaints about sexual sensation," says Dr. Niederberger. "And remember, these are men who have experienced both." If your son is circumcised from birth, he's never going to know the difference. Whether they are circumcised or not, most men have very satisfying and fulfilling sex lives.
