For most men, deciding whether or not to opt for circumcision can be due to a number of influencing factors, including where women stand when it comes to the “circumcision vs. uncircumcised” debate. It is not surprising that most men consider this option over again, and continue to ask whether women prefer circumcised men or not.

If you are thinking of going through adult circumcision as an adult, you may want to think of it as a decision that only has an effect on you, your health and life. However, research shows that opting for circumcision also has a direct effect on your female partners as well. As a fact, when it comes to making up your mind on whether or not to go through adult circumcision surgery, many men cite concerns over how their newly circumcised penis would affect their female partners in their sexual life.

Along with other debates that hurl around circumcision, the effect of going through circumcision and female pleasure is a subject of lots of controversy and discussion. Fortunately, many compelling statistics could help you to cut through the misinformation and provide you with some facts that you need to make a well-informed decision for yourself.

Are you one of those who wonder about how a circumcision would affect your female partner, here is what you need to know.

It Keeps Your Partner Healthy

The primary and most important benefits for women who have a circumcised partner relates to their health. She will be healthier as uncircumcised penis related to the buildup of bacteria and other pathogens that pile up under the foreskin. During intercourse, these pathogens can find their way into the urogenital system by their male partner, where they can cause infections in the urinary tract and vagina. When their male partners go through circumcision, women benefit by having:

• A reduction in the risks of contracting HPV associated cervical cancer. You should be aware that HPV stands for Human Papillomavirus, a common virus that lodges underneath the foreskin of men and finds its way to the vagina/cervix during intercourse

• A reduction in the risks of Chlamydia, which is a serious sexually transmitted disease that increases the risk of infertility, ectopic pregnancy, and pelvic inflammatory disease

• It also decreases the risks of developing genital herpes, and other sexually transmitted diseases including chancroid, syphilis, and HIV.

Increases Intimacy

Circumcised men are less likely to have “smegma,” a sticky residue of oils, dead skin, and other substances that could cause an unpleasant odor and harbor bacteria. It also helps to make women more intimate and ensure they experience more pleasure during intercourse.

Better Performance during Intercourse

A circumcised penis also means that your partner does not need to worry about you having conditions like phimosis, which is a condition in which the foreskin does not retract over the head of the penis. Men who have phimosis have significant difficulty in engaging in sexual intercourse and obtaining an erection. In fact, about 1 out of every 10 men with this condition find it difficult to have an erection.

Finally, studies show that women who have circumcised partners are more likely to experience increased sexual pleasure when compared to those whose partners do not have a circumcised penis. Why is this so? Studies report that this happens for a number of reasons, including:

• They feel stimulated by the appearance of circumcised penis

• They find circumcised men to have a more “staying power” compared to the uncircumcised ones

• They find circumcised men have fewer issues related to hygiene including odor and smegma

• Some women cite that circumcised penis lead to greater penile-vaginal stimulation, and last but not the least

• It increases orgasms more frequently during intercourse.

Circumcision also brings along other important health benefits for women as well as men. Multiple studies show that circumcision reduces the likelihood of transmitting other diseases such as genital herpes, HIV, syphilis, and other diseases that could trigger several types of cancer including penile and cervical cancer. Choosing to opt for the circumcision procedure can help both you and your partner to reduce the risks of encountering any one of such diseases.

Apart from affecting women in these aspects, circumcision also affects you as a man in a number of ways. It helps to keep away conditions like phimosis, paraphimosis, recurrent balanitis, and other infections.

The bottom line is that opting to go through a circumcision surgery is highly a personal decision. It could also be due to cultural or religious reasons. While there are several studies that provide compelling evidence in favor of circumcision, the best course of action is always to set up a consultation with an adult circumcision specialist. Take your time and discuss all of your concerns, provide your doctor with up to date information about your lifestyle, medication, health to make your decision a lot easier.
