Male circumcision is widely known to decrease the chance of contracting HIV, reduce instances of urinary tract infections as well as prevent penile cancer and many children are circumcised at birth. However, males undergoing the process of circumcision in adulthood often wonder how it will affect them as adults.
A recent article in Medical News Today notes a November article in the Journal of Sexual Medicine that found adult male circumcision to have no affect on sexual performance. A study of 2,684 Kenyan men resulted in 99 percent of men satisfied with their circumcision, and the majority of men reported both greater penile sensitivity, and easier use of condoms.”
The study also noted higher rates of sexual satisfaction over time.
“This topic has been highly controversial.” said Goldstein, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine. “I am pleased to be able to publish irrefutable evidence that circumcision does not have negative side effects regarding sexual health; rather it is quite the opposite.”
