Circumcision and PE

Will Circumcision Cause Premature Ejaculation?

There is no consensus in the medical journals that adult circumcision will have a significant impact on premature ejaculation. The most popular theory is that the removal of foreskin exposes the shaft and glans of the penis, gradually reducing penis sensitivity. Two conflicting studies argue that circumcision can have a positive impact on premature ejaculation (increasing the time to climax) while the other states there is no difference between circumcised and uncircumcised males when it comes to ejaculatory times. The jury is still out and more studies need to be completed before concrete evidence is supported for one side or the other. The medical community does seem to agree on one thing... circumcision should not cause premature ejaculation if you have did not experience it prior to the surgery.

Penile Sensitivity For Uncircumcised Men

Did you know only one-third of men are circumcised? If you're not living in the US (82.5%), somewhere in the Middle East (90%+) or in South Africa (45%) chances are you are not circumcised - that is unless your religion or country requires or recommends otherwise. For you, your foreskin has acted as a protective shield for the head of your penis (glans) since birth. Typically, the foreskin can be retracted over the glans in flaccid or erect states, and even if it is not, medical professionals believe it is not an issue unless the person is experiencing a negative side effect. 

Uncircumcised men typically have more sensitive glans than circumcised men. This is attributed to the foreskin acting as a protective shield over the years - protecting the head of the penis from rubbing against the inside of your underwear or pants. If you are worried that your glans may be too sensitive and it is causing your premature ejaculation issues, you shouldn't be. In 2016, a group of medical professionals sought out 10,000+ circumcised and uncircumcised men to see if there could be an attribution made between the two differences. Based on their findings, circumcision did not have an effect on the occurrence of PE. 

Penile Sensitivity For Circumcised Men

A vast majority of men who are circumcised were circumcised during early childhood. Some medical professionals believe that circumcised men have a lesser degree of sensitivity. 1,000 men were surveyed and those that were circumcised reported decreased sexual pleasure and lower orgasm intensity. That does not go to say that getting circumcised can be a preventative measure against premature ejaculation. We do not know of any medical professionals that currently use circumcision as a means to reduce penis sensitivity specifically to treat PE in adult men. For those men that were circumcised in late childhood or adulthood may experience different penile sensitivity for a while after the procedure, typically pain or irritation of the glans due to the constant rubbing on clothing on the exposed head of the penis. Generally, this sensation subsides once the nerve endings in the glans get acquainted with the new sensations without the protective foreskin.

If you are considering circumcision as a way to combat premature ejaculation, you shouldn't. There are various other ways to delay ejaculation and last longer in bed without a surgical operation. In fact, most experimental premature ejaculation surgeries are very risky at this time and should be avoided at all costs.

Is Adult Circumcision Right For You?

When considering circumcision you should always know the benefits and risks. There are plenty of each and it is best to be sure you have a conversation with your health care professional to make a decision. 

 Possible benefits:

  • Decrease your risk of a urinary tract infection
  • Prevention of inflamed glans (Balanitis
  • Reduced risk of some sexually transmitted diseases in men
  • Prevention of any issues that would have to do with the foreskin retracting and returning to normal thereafter

Possible risks:

  • Pain after the procedure
  • Possible infection of the penis from the procedure
  • Irritation to the head of the penis (glans)
  • Possible injury to the penis
