Your Call: Are Women’s Ethical & Erotic Preferences About Circumcision in Line?

Share your advice for this reader in the comments section below…

Dear Em & Lo,

My parents did not believe in circumcision so they left me natural, and I don’t have any problems with the way I am and I have not had any problems with ladies. But I would like to know what women really think about foreskin or no skin? I ask this because there seems to be a disconnect between what some people say publicly and what they believe privately. Is there a difference between the ethical and the erotic for women?  It’s easy to imagine a woman not wanting to hurt a baby, but might that same woman find circumcised penises more of a turn on? In this PC culture, it can be hard to acertain people’s true opinions. What are the majority of women’s ethical and sexual preferences when it comes to a circumcised or uncircumcised penis — and, more to the point, are those two things usually the same?

  1. I am a 55 year-old woman who has had sexual relations with several men over my lifetime – all of whom were circumcised. Until my current partner, that is. I can honestly say that I had no idea how different (WONDERFUL!) an UNcircumcised penis feels! I hope I never have to be “in the market” again, because I think I’d have to limit my options to uncircumsised men only. It’s that much better. I now feel exceptionally bad that my ex and I had our son circumcised, even though I had learned that none of my six brothers were circ’d. My [ex-]husband was and he wanted our son to “be like him.” Sex is amazing with my uncirc’d man and he’s by all definitions average in size. Since he was my first, I was intrigued enough to read about uncirc’d men (something I knew nothing about prior to him) and discovered that many men who were circumcised are attempting to stretch their remaining skin to regain their foreskin. I’m sure that doesn’t address the nerve endings that were damaged in circumcision, but they feel it’s important to return to their God-given state. I agree. For the record, if an uncirc’d penis is kept clean (my guy does) there’s nothing even remotely unpleasant about it. I would lick his any day, any time. It’s that wonderful!

  2. I have never been with an uncircumcised man and I really don’t have an interest in trying. I have a friend who’s husband was uncircumcised and she told me that he would get yeast infections and then she would get yeast infections…often.

  3. I’ve been with both circed and uncirced men. They were equally good. Mmmm, nice thinking about them. Anyhow, Collegian, if you are natural, the women that you end up being intimate with will most likely have a preference. However, when you find the one that makes you cum harder than you ever have before and you can curl her toes like nobody’s business, foreskin will be neither here nor there. Good luck, man.

  4. Doctor D,
    instead of believing everything you read on rabidly pro-circ sites which select comments out of context, ignore contrary evidence, and post scare articles, you might wish to read the actual and entire medical studies pertaining to circumcision.

    You can start here:


    Search the subject that interests you.

    IF you are a doctor, you seem woefully ignorant of the studies your SHOULD be aware of–it is your JOB to be informed of VALID evidence.

  5. Hi, late to the party but I’ve been anti-circumcision since my early teens. It’s pretty obviously unethical. None of the reasons or rationalizations* I’ve heard have ever been solid enough to excuse lopping off the body parts of a defenseless child. (* Let’s be honest, the disease thing was something we made up after the fact to make ourselves feel better, and the benefits are negligible for any guy with access to condoms.)

    Anyway, I was initially a bit squeamish about the idea of an uncut guy, even though I believed so strongly that cutting infants was wrong. With the way (ignorant) people go on foreskins, I was imagining this smelly, weird-looking thing that tore as easily as tissue paper. I have been with 2 guys now; one cut and one not, and obviously I was wrong. Once a guy is fully erect, it’s pretty hard to tell the difference, and personally I prefer the uncut look the rest of the time. A lot of the women who are hypothesizing that they ‘would’ be grossed out by an uncut penis are probably basing that out of the same kind of ignorance I had. Keep it clean, definitely, but you probably already know that. 🙂 Overall, I think most women with experience with both would say that cut vs uncut means very little in the big picture.

    What you wrote is probably TMI for most but I appreciate you uninhibited honesty. I never heard of such things and I’m as jealous as all get out. It must be odd to read how your naturally equipment grosses out our American women. I wonder how it would feel if the shoe was on the other foot?

  7. Oddly, nobody mentions LENGTH of foreskin. Mine is very short (and very loose), so cleaning “under” it has never been a problem. (My little bother has a long foreskin.) When my penis is erect, one has to look closely to see that it is not “cut”.

    Silly girl in this discussion talks about getting the foreskin out of the way and “getting to the meat”. I have news for her: my foreskin is part of the VERY sensitive meat.

    I can masturbate (sometimes surreptitiously on long bus trips or airline flights) just by pinching and twisting the frenulum. If more exposure is safe or in company where it is permissible, using the frenulum to lift my penis off my belly and bouncing or swinging it around is VERY pleasant.

  8. Hi Rose

    I find most American girls prefer a cut sex organ. I presume it is because most of your experiences are with cut. I say that because European girls have more experiences with uncut and prefer that. They describe it as being more to pay with, more responsive and more sensitive. It absolutely true Rose, generally, American girls do prefer a cut sex organ. I prefer small to no breasts on females but I would be hard pressed to justify surgically altering my daughter because of my sexual preference. This sounds like I’m a wise guy not taking this subject seriously but, in principal, we are talking about the same thing. Currently, the circumcision rate in America is 50-50 so feature American woman will be equally experienced with both. On the west coasts only one in three are cut. We are thinking of the feature because, most all American men are cut and there is nothing we or any body can do about that.

  9. I personally find uncut a turn off, very much. No specific reasons, just find it disgusting, sorry if any one finds this offensive but this is a question to know how women think about circum’ so I have to be honest. I was with a man who was uncut once, the moment I saw it, I completely lost interest and didn’t want to touch it again even though he was a decent guy.
