Heightened sensation is another personal reason for circumcision that can be related to improving sexual function and pleasure.
- The foreskin can sometimes cause discomfort or pain during sexual activity due to issues such as tightness or difficulty retracting.
- This inconvenience can manifest when wearing condoms for example. In addition to improving comfort, research has also shown that circumcision can increase sensitivity in the penis, leading to enhanced sexual pleasure.
- The foreskin contains nerve endings that can become desensitized over time, reducing sensitivity during sexual activity. By removing the foreskin, the penis is exposed and more responsive to touch, making sexual activity more enjoyable.
