is suspected by many to actually lead to desensitization
of the penis
), as this part of the body
was not designed to be constantly rubbing
. In theory, the incessant stimulation
of the members
of circumsized males
will reduce the sensitivity
—thus making sexual
activities less pleasurable
. Unfortunately, I haven't heard of an actual study
of this phenomenon
Infancy is exactly when one does not want to be subjected to the sort of painful trauma experienced during circumcision. Having parts of one's genitals chopped off is traumatic at any age.
Circumcision is not necessary for cleanliness. The uncircumcized penis can be easily kept clean: a simple 15-second rinsing every time one showers is an effective and simple method of ensuring sanitation and well-being.
While it is certainly nowhere near as severe as female genital mutilation, it is still no simple medical procedure. It's a bizarre, barbaric, and completely unnecessary practice.
