A gallary of the mutilation done by circumcision and more information about the intact penis:

A February 2013 Belgian study “confirms the importance of the foreskin for penile sensitivity, overall sexual satisfaction, and penile functioning. Furthermore, this study shows that a higher percentage of circumcised men experience discomfort or pain and unusual sensations as compared with the uncircumcised population. Before circumcision without medical indication, adult men, and parents considering circumcision of their sons, should be informed of the importance of the foreskin in male sexuality.”

A study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found circumcision is associated with higher rates of STIs and HIV.

A recent study in Denmark found circumcised men have a much higher rate of sexual problems.
Renowned health expert Dr. Dean Edell has spoken out against infant circumcision for decades.

When scientists used fine-touch medical instruments to measure the fine-touch sensory responses in the penis, they found: “The glans of the circumcised penis is less sensitive to fine touch than the glans of the uncircumcised penis. The transitional region from the external to the internal prepuce is the most sensitive region of the uncircumcised penis and more sensitive than the most sensitive region of the circumcised penis. Circumcision ablates the most sensitive parts of the penis.

Recently Men’s Health Magazine interviewed Dr. Anthony Weinhaus, Ph.D., director of the University of Minnesota’s Human Anatomy program, who said: “Male foreskin takes years to separate from the glans (head), which is unusual enough of a process to suggest one if its main functions may help prevent infection, especially in infants. It helps shield the opening of… the urethra from any contaminates or bacteria, explains Weinhaus. It also protects your reproductive chances: Without a foreskin, the glans rubs against objects, like your clothes, and develops a thick layer of skin to desensitize itself, Weinhaus says. Foreskin keeps men more sexually sensitive, which would’ve encouraged our ancestors to reproduce more.”

Dr. David Chamberlain of the Association for Pre and Perinatal Psychology and Health and Dr. James W. Prescott address the trauma associated with genital mutilation of infants.

A 2009 study of 35 clinical trials involving 1,997 newborns concluded that dorsal penile nerve block and EMLA do not eliminate circumcision pain, and that trials of oral acetaminophen, sugar solutions, pacifiers, music, and other environmental modifications to reduce circumcision pain did not prove them effective.
