Circumcision

Men are born with a foreskin – a skin that covers and protects the penis head. When a boy or a man is circumcised, his foreskin is removed and the head of the penis is exposed.

Reasons

Circumcision is done for a variety of reasons. In some places, it shows how boys or men belong to a certain religion, ethnic group, or tribe. In other situations, parents have their sons circumcised for hygiene or health reasons.

Male circumcision around the world

The World Health Organization estimates that 30 percent of males around the world are circumcised. Among some groups, such as Jews and Muslims, nearly all men are circumcised.

What are the advantages of being circumcised?

According to some research, compared to uncircumcised men, circumcised men have a lower risk of:

Some scientists believe that circumcised men have a lower risk of infections because without a foreskin, there is less of a moist environment for germs to grow.

With a circumcised penis, the head may be less sensitive, so the man can go on longer during intercourse before ejaculating. For some men this can be a bonus.

What are the disadvantages of being circumcised?

Circumcised men may find it much harder to reach an orgasm as they get older, research has found. This can also make sex less pleasurable for their partners.

Some people feel circumcision is a violent act and harmful to a boy's or man’s body. For example, the Royal Dutch Medical Society (KNMG) calls circumcision for non-medical reasons “an infringement of a child’s right to autonomy and the right to bodily integrity”. The society says the operation brings unnecessary risks of complications.

Finally, some uncircumcised men are very happy to have their foreskin!

Hmmm More usually it does need medical attention. Yatin, just show it to a doc, whats the harm, eve yoru question about the cream will get clarified, so why not? It’s a pretty simple procedure by the way!!

Shreyas, see a doctor please. It’s a very simple operation anyways, and nothing happens to the Penis bhai, that will be as is. But in the menwhile, while bathing, keep it clean, push it back and wash and wipe under the skin… that will help too. See a doc Bro!!

I have circumcised penis and the foreskin does not cums back when the penis erects. I have a question that will it create a pain while having sex ? I am virgin and want to have my sexual life good with my partner. Do justify the right option for me !

Bete Abhinav it might be painful, and foreskin ought to easy to pull back softly while bathing for cleaning, But if it is bleeding and you facing problem in pulling it back consult to a doctor. Also this could well be a cleanliness issue. See a doctor. Take care! http://lovematters.in/hi/resource/penis
