A Change in How Intercourse Works

The following is an excerpt from the National Organization of Circumcision Information & Resource Centers, Colorado site.

During intercourse with an intact penis, the vaginal walls grip the outer penile skin, and the penis slides back and forth inside its own skin. This causes very little friction against the vaginal walls. This motion is smooth and effortless and creates a very pleasurable sensation for both the man and the woman. Women who have had intercourse with an intact man describe a sensation of being perfectly and seamlessly connected to their partner.

During intercourse with a circumcised penis, the skin on the penile shaft rubs back and forth against the vaginal walls, and this is often the cause of sexual discomfort for women. Many women whose partners are circumcised need artificial lubrication to reduce friction and discomfort, but for women who have intact partners, artificial lubrication is unnecessary. Because few women in America have experienced intercourse with a natural penis, most don't understand that circumcision is a major cause of uncomfortable vaginal friction.

Studies have shown that women who have intact partners have greater levels of sexual satisfaction than women who have circumcised partners. They also have greater success reaching orgasm through intercourse. A recent survey showed that of American women who had experienced both kinds of intercourse, 89% preferred intercourse with an intact penis. These women also reported improved success at achieving orgasm through intercourse with an intact penis. Also see what Dr. Dean Edell had to say on this subject.

Marilyn Milos, RN, CPM, details further how circumcision changes intercourse for both men and women:

  1. I am SO glad my husband is intact! I can't imagine intercourse with a circumcised man. If I loved a man who had been cut, I guess it would be fine, but I'd feel bad for him, even if he didn't know any different.

    My sons are intact, too- I hope they appreciate it when they're older. It would be better if they didn't appreciate it because it was just NORMAL... maybe my grandsons will feel that way.

  2. Well, this article just left me sad and jealous! My husband is circumsized, as is every other man I've ever been intimate with (a risk of living in the midwest U.S. I guess?). I'm certainly not going to divorce him and find an intact guy, so I guess I'll just be left wondering "what if...?" My son's intact, though, as will be the one due in October. Their wives can thank me :-)!

  3. Ellen ~ There are thousands of men (who were cut at birth) now restoring. It may be something your husband (and you!) are interested in at some point...

  4. Great video!!! Learn about it without having to watch that horrible surgery on an innocent baby boy. She is SO right about the frenulum though.

  5. Fantastic video!!!!! She explains the physiology so perfectly and in layman's terms. I have a feeling that this video will explain a lot of things to a lot of wives of cut men.
