Circumcision Partially Recommended

Circumcision removes half of the penile skin and eliminates the foreskin’s gliding-action.1 Both have significant effect on sexual function and sensitivity. Circumcision removes more than 20,000 specialized, erogenous nerve endings, as much as three-fourths of the penis’s total nerve endings.2 Only 1 in 10,000 adult men opt for circumcision each year,3 many for medical, not personal reasons. And, many circumcised men are restoring their foreskins in an attempt to regain some of the function and sensitivity lost with circumcision,4 although the nerves can never be regrown. Please consider this permanent action carefully.
