Hello, I’m a 31-year-old with a problem with my foreskin. The
problem is that I hate it. I’ve withstood years of comments from guys in the locker room, friends making fun of me, and I’ve even had girls give me this shocked look when they see my penis. I’ve been considering adult circumcision. I’m beginning to research it and wanted to know what you think about it and if you were in my position, would you do it. Thanks in advance- Gary
Would I do it? If anyone comes near my penis with a scalpel and the intent to cut off a piece of my penis, the gloves are coming off! In all seriousness, adult circumcision can be a difficult decision because of factors like psychological impacts, emotional difficulties and, in less common cases, physiological
difficulties associated with foreskin. Here are some facts: Research has shown
that foreskin is the most sensitive part of the penis. It has one of the highest
concentrations in the body of super sensitive nerve endings called Meissner corpuscles, which help increase penile sensitivity and they don’t grow back if you get circumcised. There are also claims that circumcision protects against penile cancer and many STIs, which studies have shown this to be inconclusive. I’m patiently waiting for the long-term studies to challenge the short-term data that claims circumcision reduces the HIV transmission rate, which is the flavour of the month with circumcision claims currently. I rarely jump on bandwagons, including the HIV/circumcision one, especially with all the questionable testing variables in the African and Indian HIV/circumcision research that came out a few years ago. In addition, the rate of circumcision has been dropping as a result of doctors and people understanding there are few reasons, aside from less common medical difficulties and religious reasons, for male circumcision. Last year, the rate of male infants getting circumcised was approximately one out of every three -33%! You and your foreskin will be the majority in no time. If you look at Europe, Latin America and most of the world, an uncircumcised penis is the
most common look. Even a progressive city like San Francisco is proposing a 2011 ballot voting initiative to ban male circumcision within their city. With all the research you’re doing, please check out NoCirc.org for some information on why you should keep your foreskin. Here’s a last little piece of info that makes me appreciative of foreskin: The majority of women rate intercourse with an intact male (uncircumcised) as more pleasurable than with a circumcised male. If we’re playing basketball and the teams are shirts and skins… Score one for the skins.
Threesomes: one woman, two men
Hey Doc,I’m a straight guy and have always had girlfriends, hooked up with girls and liked women. I’ve had a few dreams at night about having threesomes with a girl and a guy. It was always cool and it never bugged me. But a few times instead of the dreams being me with two other girls, there has been a few dreams where it was one girl and me and a guy. In the dreams, there was never me hooking up with the guy at all, but focusing on the girl together. I keep thinking that these random two-guy, one-girl threesomes make me kind of gay and it’s bugging me big time. What do you think?- JackRelax
Many guys get off on the idea of multiple-partner sexual scenarios with both men and women. It doesn’t mean you’re gay, as orientation is self-defined and based on a number of areas such as fantasy, behaviour, emotions, and desire. If your desire is to enjoy sex with a woman and you’re OK with another guy next to you, there’s nothing homosexual about it. Most guys watch heterosexual male/female porn and we’re basically looking at another
man’s penis and naked body having sex with a female. There’s nothing gay about it. II’ve tried my hardest to only focus on the girl, but that damn guy always sneaks his way into my vision. To take things a bit further, it’s common for heterosexual men to have other men sexually involved in their fantasies and sexual behaviours. According to Kinsey, around 37% of men have achieved orgasm at least once in their lives through a homoerotic scenario (fantasy, masturbation, sexual interaction, etc). More recent research suggests the numbers haven’t changed much. Many guys, whether they admit it or not, are somewhere in the middle of the spectrum and not on the ends. In the end, you define who you are. Be honest and question your inner self to see if you’re suppressing true urges or desires. If not, then go on your merry hetero way and know that your fantasies are perfectly normative and well within the hetero spectrum.
