The penis matters. Ask any man. In a heartbeat he will be able to  describe to you, in minute detail, every mark, fold of skin, bend and texture on his penis. After all he spends a lot of time fondling it as he relaxes,  masturbates , places  it in his underwear , pees  and penetrates a person with it. He will also be able to tell you the exact  length of both  the  flaccid and erect state of his penis. As well as the measurement of his girth.

And…if he is a socially conscious man  he ruminates about whether a circumcised (cut or uncircumcised (uncut) penis is really a form of genital mutilation and blames his parents/mother for having made a penis decision for him .

But mostly he wonders how best to dress up his penis … and how best  to pleasure a partner with it. After all appearance matters in the world of dicks. They are a sign of masculinity, and are used to entice, invite and seduce via Grinder other  social media platforms. The question is : which looks and works best : cut or uncut?

The penis is  no small matter. It is a vital health indicator. It is the barometer of a man’s health: an erection problem is a symptom of a biological illness , namely depression, cardiacs vascular disease , low testosterone and diabetes. So it serves men well to notice the state of their erections.

The penis took center stage in the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Suddenly this organ of pleasure was held responsible for killing, first gay men and then young women. The issue of cut/uncut became imperative to investigate scientifically. And  as part of this invaluable life saving  research , women have been asked what they prefer.

A man’s  relationship with his penis is  in such stark contrast to a woman’s relationship with her genitals.  Women seldom ,if ever,  look at their genitals. They are difficult to see plus it  takes time to examine and understand  all those crevices ,and  bits and pieces. It requires a You Tube tutorial. And besides which her genitals need to be protected when there is  a penis inside her. Unfortunately  she is not well motivated to familairze herself with her genitals.

However women are pretty interested in talking about the penis. Finally! I celebrate that women are bold enough to voice an opinion about the penis. A point of discussion is : cut or uncut ?  After all , one cannot change the length or girth of a penis so this is a humorous conversation for women to have.  Oh yes, there are plenty of over the counter medications  and medical intervention  options on offer. Penile enlargement surgery,   silicone implant, fat injections, platelet rich plasma injections, penis stretching, penis extenders. None of which are scientifically proven to be completely safe and effective long term.

But one can ask – even insist – that a man get cut. For the sake of  safety , hygiene and sexual pleasure. Let us see what science reveals about women’s penis preferences.

Women tend to prefer circumcised penises over uncircumcised penises, according to a recent Sexual Medicinereview article. 

The researchers reviewed 29 articles that discussed circumcision around the world, including North America, Europe, Australia, Asia, and Africa (e.g., Botswana, Kenya, and Uganda.)

They found that “in the overwhelming majority” of studies, women preferred circumcised penises.

In Botswana, where most males were not circumcised, about half of the 289 women interviewed said they preferred a circumcised penis. Twenty-one percent had no preference, 7% preferred uncircumcised men, and 22% were unsure.

The reasons given include a circumcised penis was cleaner, looked more attractive, was “nicer to touch,” and smelled better. Some women said they felt more sexually satisfied with a circumcised man. Health concerns drove preferences as well. Women associated circumcised penises with a reduced risk of sexually-transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV.

In the same study mothers tended to prefer circumcision for their sons as well, citing tradition, religion, similarity to other men in the community, reduced risk of disease, improved hygiene, and better future sexual performance as important factors.

Have you had experience with cut and uncut penis ? Which do you prefer?  Give reasons for your choice. And does it change when you are having casual sex as compared to sexual interaction with a regular  partner?

Here are some common questions people ask about cut versus uncut penis: Perhaps having facts rather than irrational unscientific fears will allay some of your penis circumcision anxieties.

  • Does it affect the size of my penis? 

 Uncut :

A foreskin can make your penis look slightly bulkier when it’s flaccid. During an erection, the foreskin retracts and almost disappears, so it won’t affect how big your penis looks when it’s erect. It just looks slightly less  bulky when its flaccid.

Circumcised (Cut):

Your penis size is based mainly on your genes.

Bottom line : penis size is determined by blood flow to the penile tissues. Removing the foreskin makes no difference to penile tissues or how big your penis looks when erect. Once erect genetics win over foreskin . However keeping healthy penile tissues goes a long way to keeping your penis the same size. as you age.

  • Does it affect my appearance? 


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.

Cut :

the foreskin is absent. This leaves the glans out in the open at all times, whether you’re erect or not. You may notice a slight difference in skin texture where the foreskin was removed.

  • Does it affect my approach to hygiene?       
  • 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.

Smegma can make your penis smell and even lead to glans and foreskin inflammation (balanitis). This can make pulling back your foreskin difficult or impossible. If this happens, it’s known as phimosis. Phimosis and balanitis can both require medical attention if left untreated. If you’re uncut, you’ll need to wash regularly under the foreskin to reduce your risk for infection and other conditions.


A cut penis doesn’t require additional hygiene. Just make sure you wash it regularly when you bathe.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.

  • Does it affect my sexual sensitivity? 


The American Academy of Pediatrics has concluded that circumcision’s benefits outweigh its risks and that no well-done studies find a reduction of sensitivity.


Opponents argue that the foreskin, the flap of skin covering the head of the penis removed during the procedure, is rich in touch-sensitive nerves, and that circumcision reduces the penis’ sexual sensitivity, impairing sexual function and satisfaction. Proponents counter that circumcision does not compromise men’s sexual function or pleasure, and offers substantial medical benefits.

Researchers in Kenya surveyed the sexual function, pleasure, and satisfaction of 2,784 uncircumcised sexually active adult men. Then they circumcised 1,391 of them, and re-surveyed the entire group every six months for two years. In every survey, the two groups showed no statistically significant differences in sexual function, pleasure, or satisfaction.

The researchers also asked the circumcised men additional questions focusing on any differences they noticed before and after the procedure. At the two-year mark, 99.9 percent of the men said they felt “satisfied with their circumcisions,” and far from decreasing penile sensitivity, 72 percent said their sensitivity had increased.  In addition, 78 percent said circumcision made it easier to don condoms.

Researchers in Uganda conducted a similar trial involving 4,456 uncircumcised adult men, 2,210 of whom got circumcised.  Before-and-after surveys showed no differences in sexual desire, erection issues, or other measures of sexual function, pleasure, and satisfaction. Two years after the procedure, 99.9 percent of the uncircumcised men said they felt “satisfied or very satisfied” with their sex lives, while among those who’d been circumcised, the figure was a statistically equivalent 98.4 percent.

The researchers concluded: “Male circumcision has no adverse effects on sexual function, sensation, sensitivity, satisfaction, or pleasure, especially when performed during infancy.”

Medical Benefits

Circumcision has many well-documented medical benefits. In men, it reduces risk of many sexual transmitted infections, notably HIV. It also reduces risk of cancer of the penis. In addition women partners of cut men  have lower rates of cervical cancer, herpes, trichomonas, chlamydida, bacterial vaginosis, and human papillomavirus infection (HPV, genial warts).

Studies show circumcision reduces HIV transmission in high-prevalence areas, such as Africa, and reduces urinary tract infection and penile cancer incidence.

What science does show as truth is that there are good  health reasons for male circumcision. WHO put out this  statement  :

“Male circumcision provides only partial protection, and therefore should be only one element of a comprehensive HIV prevention package which includes: the provision of HIV testing and counseling services; treatment for sexually transmitted infections; the promotion of safer sex practices; the provision of male and female condoms and promotion of their correct and consistent use.”

In conclusion , cut versus uncut remains a very personal preference for both men and women. Appearances and beauty is in the eye of the beholder:) and whilst women say they prefer cut to uncut, remember that  sexual satisfaction is a very emotional and personal experience.
