I am for ever seeing circumcised men proclaim that they are "just fine". That if "I was any more sensitive, I could not stand it" etc etc. These are obviously the quotes of young men.
Now there have been occasional postings on this board about how circumcision affects one's sex life, but there seems to be very little information about what happens as one ages. I can say that, personaly at the age of 60, I have few issues with ED, but I have virtualy no feeling left, and it is hit or miss whether I actualy 'get there'. When I mentioned this to my doctor she replied "Well, it's the circumcision thing". Do any of you know of any studies or research that addresses this issue?
Recently one of you posted a portion of a paper that compared the evolution of a human penis vs a primate penis. It showed that most of the nerves that a human posesses are located in the foreskin with a few more located at the base of the glans. Seeing that diagram was a "light bulb" moment for me. I can vividly recall, as a teenager, the exquisite sensations in the area of the sulcus. Feelings that, alas, have completely disappeared.
It seems that few people consider the long term affects of amputating a foreskin, and I would be very interested in learning more about this issue, and equaly importantly, if there are any stategies to mitigate this loss of sensation.
