In the world of today, not a lot of men have a choice in determining whether they have the foreskin of their penis removed or not. In Nigeria, it is estimated that about 75 percent of all newly born males are circumcised at birth. Circumcision has a whole lot of advantages and there are more than enough reasons for you to thank your parents for taking that wonderful decision to remove your foreskin.
Its removal has a lot of impact on the reproductive health of all male species, and if you’re circumcised, here are five reasons to thank your parents for making that important decision.
A research study conducted in Turkey found out that having a circumcision can help to delay ejaculation and orgasm. The research recorded the time it took for men who were circumcised as adults to climax. The study recorded the time it took them to orgasm before circumcision and the time it took after they were circumcised. It was deduced that the men lasted 20 seconds longer after they had been circumcised.
It is however important to note that the minor time difference should not be confused as a treatment for premature ejaculation as there are other scientifically proven methods of delaying ejaculation.
Your Partner’s Orgasm Is Delayed Too
A research conducted in Denmark found that wives of circumcised men tend to take longer to orgasm. According to the lead researcher Sex Professor Debby Herbenick, Ph.D., women married to circumcised men reported feeling the glans penis shaft of their husbands along their vaginal walls during sex, with some saying it took them long to orgasm during sexual intercourse.
Surely, not all women prefer circumcised guys but in all, the fleshy foreskin made into a crown shaft increases the sweet sensations of vaginal intercourse for women.
Condoms Don’t Slip Off
Uncircumcised men can relate to the struggle of getting a condom that fits and stays on. The foreskin makes it easy for the rubber to slip off. As such, uncircumcised men have to pull back their foreskin during application as this allows the foreskin to move freely and easily during sex which helps the condom stay in place and helps the rubber stay put.
You’re Better Protected from STIs
Circumcision reduces the risks of you getting a STI such as HIV. A study conducted by the Centre for Disease Control in Baltimore on men who were exposed to the HIV virus found that circumcised men were less likely to get infected.
Research is still ongoing as to why this is so but a prevailing theory says that the foreskin makes uncircumcised men more susceptible to the Human Immuno Virus than the skin on a circumcised shaft and that the foreskin provides an environment for an array of infectious bacteria and viruses to thrive. The CDC reports that the foreskin has a higher chance of tearing during sex which is an easy way for viruses to gain entry into the body. It is however important to note that circumcision is not a substitute for protection such as condoms or abstinence which are more safer.
It Reduces Your Chances Of Having Cancer
The chances of a circumcised man having prostrate or penile cancer is grossly reduced majorly because the foreskin tends to harbour Sexually transmitted infections and inflammatory diseases such as Human papilloma virus (HPV), which contribute to the development of cancer.
If you’re lacking a cut, you may want to consider getting one or wear condoms to protect you against diseases. Also, take your personal hygiene seriously by taking a shower after sex while retracting the foreskin of your penis to ensure it is properly washed.
