Q: I am having a good time with a guy I recently started dating. But when he told me he’s not circumcised, I was a little surprised. He and I have talked about it but we have never actually had sex yet.
He has sent me pictures so I know what his penis looks like. But I want to know if there’s any difference between having sex with an uncircumcised man and a circumcised man.
I’d like to know what to expect so I won’t end up doing the wrong thing or feeling awkward around him.
A: It’s normal to be a little nervous when you’re trying something new. But no need to fret, though, there isn’t a major difference between having sex with a cut and uncut guy. But there are a couple of little things to consider.
Let’s start with his sensitivity. During circumcision, the foreskin (the tissue covering the head of the penis) is removed. And that part that’s taken off contains certain nerves endings that can increase pleasure. Hence, it’s possible for uncircumcised guys to actually be more sensitive since they basically have more skin to play around with.
And now to your pleasure. The good news is that uncircumcised guys may have a slight advantage in the pleasure department. It has been discovered that women who are in a sexual relationship with uncircumcised men are less likely to report feeling dissatisfied in the bedroom.
And more good news. When an uncircumcised guy’s foreskin retracts, it may bunch up around the base of his penis. This can lead to some friction against your clitoris and if you enjoy clitoral stimulation, this can be a major advantage.
All in all, there’s no need to worry. As time goes on, you’ll get used to your partner and understand better how to make sex work for you both. Here’s the thing, the same rules apply even if you’re dating a circumcised man. Getting used each other sexually is simply a given in any relationship.
