Circumcised vs. Uncircumcised: Pros and Cons to Consider

 Here are circumcised vs uncircumcised

The main difference between a circumcised (cut) and uncircumcised (uncut) penis is the presence of foreskin around the head of the penis.

Uncut: In an uncut penis, the foreskin drapes over the head (glans) of the penis like a hood when you’re not erect.

The penis head largely isn’t visible. When you’re erect, the foreskin retracts and exposes the glans. The foreskin usually looks bunched up.

Uncut: An uncut penis requires some extra attention to hygiene. If you don’t regularly clean under the foreskin, bacteria, dead skin cells, and oil can cause smegma to build up.

However, your penile skin may be more likely to get dry, chafed, or irritated without the foreskin. You can help prevent this by wearing loose-fitting underwear and avoiding tight pants.

Uncut: The foreskin provides natural lubrication to the penis.

 However, there’s no conclusive evidence that being cut will require extra lubrication for the same amount of sexual satisfaction that those who are uncut experience.

Uncut: Being uncut doesn’t have any direct effect on your fertility. Sperm production is based in the testicles, not the penis.

Your diet, lifestyle, and overall health have a much larger impact on your fertility.

Being cut or uncut doesn’t have enough effect on your risk for most conditions to universally recommend the procedure. It doesn’t affect your overall sexual health.
