America is virtually unique amongst the western world, in that almost all infant boys in this country are circumcised at birth – and although that trend is dropping sharply, it still means about 79% of sexually active American men are currently ‘cut.’
This can present an alarming surprise to American girls and guys when they finally find themselves presented with an uncircumcised cock! Whether you’ve hooked up with a foreign exchange student, or just encountered one of the minority of uncut Americans, facing an intact penis for the first time can be genuinely disorientating!
And while it’s true that uncircumcised penises look very different to their cut brethren, and many untruths about uncut cocks remain common (like that they’re less hygienic than a circumcised penises) they’re nothing to be afraid of.
Don’t believe any of the negative rumors; an uncircumcised penis is essentially the same as a circumcised one; although there are a few pointers it might be worth knowing before you ‘tackle’ one:
Get a Grip: One of the advantages of an uncircumcised penis is that the foreskin acts as a built-in masturbation sleeve, so take advantage! Giving a hand-job to a cut cock normally requires some kind of lube to avoid chafing, but the foreskin self-lubricates and can be pulled back and forth over the head to deliver mind-blowing pleasure to the lucky recipient without any prior planning.
Twisted Tongues: There are some titillating tricks you can perform on an uncircumcised cock to really blow a guy’s mind. When you’re giving a guy head, for example, try slipping your tongue between his foreskin and glans and swirling it around the head of his cock. That’s guaranteed to elicit a favorable response!
Cover Up: The foreskin evolved for two purposes; to protect the sensitive glans of the penis, and to aid penetration. With vaginal sex, the foreskin rolls back on entry, almost like a ‘penis applicator,’ making penetration much easier; especially without lube. While this is great for unprotected sex, however, it does present some challenges when wearing condoms. It’s important to roll back the foreskin completely before putting on a condom; and applying a layer of water-based lube before the layer of latex. This helps the condom stay secure (and increases overall sensation.)
Lean and Clean: It’s simply not true that an uncircumcised penis is less hygienic than a cut cock. Pulling back the foreskin and washing the head of the penis daily is a ritual most uncircumcised men are used to, and that cleanly removes the oils and shed skin cells that might have otherwise been trapped underneath. Baby wipes are ideal for this; many uncircumcised men keep a box by the toilet tissue.
Aftercare: After unprotected sex, it’s recommended that an uncircumcised man cleans underneath his foreskin with baby wipes or water, as the foreskin can otherwise trap bacteria or bodily fluids, increasing the chances of irritation later on. The same is true for circumcised guys; but it’s definitely more of an issue with intact penises.
When comparing the difference between ‘cut’ or ‘uncut’, many men and women have their own preferences. Some say circumcised cocks are more aesthetic, while many report that an uncircumcised cock feels more pleasurable and natural.
It there’s one thing that almost everybody can agree on, however, it’s that the similarities vastly outweigh the differences. All cocks are hard in the dark.
What’s more important than any of the other points I’ve made is that no man should be defined by his cock. The vast majority of circumcisions are performed at birth; with the recipient having no choice in the matter. Therefore, any sexual responsible adult should avoid making the owner of a cock feel self-conscious about the choice his parents made for him all those years ago.
