Approximately 75 percent of the U.S. is circumcised, and for the longest time, despite it being a very common practice, people thought we were fucking with wack dongs.
That’s because circumcised Bros have their foreskin removed, which contain tons and tons and tons of nerve-endings.
Which mean uncircumsized Bros are pounding with the whole package, getting mad sensations while screwing, while us dudes with foreskins lopped off aren’t having nearly as much fun.
Well, turns out that B.S. ain’t true.
The penises of circumcised men are just as sensitive as those of uncircumcised men, according to researchers in Canada.
Theories about sensitivity, health and ethics have dominated on-and-off debates about circumcision, however researchers at Queen’s University say the one-third of men around the world who are circumcised aren’t missing out.
The tests seem fucked up. I mean, like, who would subject their ween to this?
For the study, published in The Journal of Urology, researchers recruited 62 men between the ages of 18 and 37, 30 of whom were circumcised and 32 of whom were intact, testing touch and pain thresholds, as well as warmth detection and heat pain thresholds, on the forearm as a control compared to three locations on the penis, including foreskin if the men had it.
Let me burn your dick for science.
The researchers hope that this study will help stem the burgeoning anti-circumcision crowd, who believe the practice is unnatural, despite the proven health benefits.
“One researcher who only used fine touch to measure penile sensitivity claimed the foreskin is the most sensitive part of the penis, so removing it via circumcision is detrimental to men’s sex lives,” Jenn Bossio, a doctoral student at Queen’s University, said in a press release. “Many anti-circumcision activists believe this is true, but we didn’t find sufficient evidence to support this. We found that while the foreskin was more sensitive to fine touch, it was not more sensitive to the other stimuli we used, and those stimuli are likely more important in sexual pleasure.”
So chop dat dick.
