I want to be circumsised.


I've wanted to become circumcised since I was about 12 years old, but I don't want to have surgery or anything that stops my blood in my foreskin. Is there any way to become "circumcised" without removing the foreskin?

Simply wear your foreskin back of the sulcus.


This makes no sense. Either get cut, and you won’t have skin covering your head, or pull the skin back and leave head exposed on a normal basis. No such thing as circumcision without removing the foreskin, that’s what circumcision is...

Why do you want to be circumcised anyway? Most people aren’t, and you’ll lose a lot of sensitivity. Plus girls may find it weird. ( unless you live in America )

I live in America..and they find it weird and gross if you’re not cut. Society sucks!

The rate so circumcision is going down in America, so they won’t find it weird soon, most girls won’t care, and if they do, do you really want to be with that girl anyway?

It will be painful, you will loose sensitivity and function...

I highly Advise you don’t go through with it. Most girls won’t notice anyway.

True, it is going down but still stigmatized. I got cut last week, I was always self conscious ever since I was little. But you’re right, a dick is a dick ha.


You cant Save & keep your Hood

Yes, it is called "autocircumcision". Men retract their foreskins and wear them retracted.


Hi there, I was same like you when I was uncut. Since I got circumcised at the age of 30 I have a great change in my sex pattern mainly the timing. Generally it takes at least 45min to 1hr to come which some time not very good news for female partner. But that’s reality of circumcision I guess. Best of luck.

That is the operation keep it or lose it. I would lose it

I would keep it, 80% of men world wide keep it, and I’m sure they would never want to loose it ( as long as it works properly, but then again thats rare and easily treated )

You obviously want to keep it, so keep it! Don’t do anything for anyone else! Its your body, and once its gone its gone!

Here are some things to think about before you grant consent for circumcision.

You were blessed with a protective, highly-innervated, erogenous full-length foreskin, which gave you a whole, complete, and normal penis. Many foreskin-deprived guys would envy your foreskin.

You should thank your parents for protecting your physical integrity, which you have now lost. Because of your physical integrity you would have been able to have sex the way nature intended it.



The foreskin is a complex double-layered structure composed of smooth muscle fiber, skin, mucosa, nerves, arteries, and veins. It is natural, normal, healthy, and its possession contributes to a sense of well-being. The foreskin contains the highly-innervated ridged band.



The foreskin has protective, sensory, sexual, and immunological functions. It is loaded with nerves and is the site of most of the penile sensation.


The foreskin is a “specific erogenous zone.” The foreskin is essential for normal intercourse. Foreskin provides the additional skin needed to allow for penile expansion during erection. Amputation of the foreskin, which is an integral and important part of the penis has very significant adverse sexual and emotional effects.

Nature put the foreskin there to provide at least fourteen functions:

1. to cover and bond with the synechia so as to permit the development of the mucosal surface of the glans and inner foreskin.

2. to protect the infant's glans from feces and ammonia in diapers.

3. To protect against disease causing pathogens.

4. to protect the glans penis from friction, abrasion, and pain throughout life.

5. to keep the glans moisturized and soft with emollient oils.

6. to lubricate the glans.

7. to coat the glans with a waxy protective substance.

8. to provide sufficient skin to cover an erection by unfolding.

9. to provide an aid to masturbation and foreplay.

10. to serve as an aid to penetration.

11. to reduce friction and chafing during intercourse.

12. to serve as erogenous tissue because of its rich supply of erogenous receptors.

13. to contact and stimulate the G-spot of the female partner.

14. to produce pheromones to excite the female sexual partner.


Adult circumcision is an irreversible, elective surgical operation to injure the penis and reduce its size and sensation by cutting off the nerve-laden sexually sensitive, erogenous foreskin. Once it is removed you cannot get it back. Adult circumcision is usually performed with a general anesthetic, however local anesthetic may be used. Like all surgical operations, it has risks of hemorrhage, infection, and surgical mishap. Loss of the penis has been known to occur. Death has been known to occur.

You should be very certain that you want a circumcision because once it is done, you cannot reverse it.

The cost is about $2,500-$3,000 in the United States. Circumcision may be carried out under local or general anaesthesia. You will need pain medication during the painful recovery.

It is normal to keep the foreskin forward over the head for protection. After the foreskin is amputated by circumcision, the head will be fully exposed and may be very painful.

Circumcision is an injurious, damaging, destructive, and harmful surgical operation that cuts through nerves and blood vessels that feed blood to the penis. The operation is irreversible. You will have the rest of your life to mourn your loss of your erogenous foreskin.

Swelling is normal after surgery.

The foreskin is filled with nerves that make it the most sensitive part of the human body, therefore, cutting into it is very painful.

It takes about six weeks to recover from an adult circumcision.

One should avoid getting erections because erections tend to tear out stitches.. Oral ketoconazole may help to prevent postoperative erections.

It is normal for the head of the penis to hurt after a circumcision because the protection provided by the foreskin is gone forever.


There are different kinds of stitches. Some dissolve but others must be removed by the doctor.

One of many purposes of the foreskin is to provide the additional skin that is needed when the penis becomes erect. When the foreskin is removed, erections may be painful because of the lack of skin. Also, erections may tear the stitches out. If that happens, then you will need to see your surgeon to get it repaired.

You will now need lubrication for masturbation.

One will never fully regain the lost protection, sexual function, sensation, and sexual pleasure. After your circumcision, you will need lubrication for masturbation.




After you have your circumcision you will never be able to have sex as nature intended it.

If you go through with your circumcision and you should become interested in restoring your foreskin, a search on the Internet for “foreskin restoration” will produce lots of information.

Circumcision experience

Don’t be ridiculous, I got circumcised recently and barely lost any sensation... in some ways maybe feels better even!

Also it is possible to masturbate without lube

I started doing after 7 weeks

Bucky85 in reply to Tahha

A few circumcised men can masturbate without lube but the great majority need lube.

I am glad your circumcision worked out for you, but most men report a substantial loss in sensation, which is confirmed by medical science.


I would try pulling the skin back and leaving it that way and see how you get on. You may decide it is not for you. Personally I wish I had never had to be circumcised but I had little choice.

Just remember to keep it clean.
