Adult Male Circumcision - What You Need to Know
When Adam Zeldis was 16, Howard Stern changed his mind about his penis forever. On his show, Stern was talking about how circumcision changes sexual sensations for men, and Zeldis's curiosity was piqued. He had been circumcised as a baby, and he hadn't ever thought about whether it had reduced sexual sensation for him before. In fact, up to that point, he had no idea that there were even men who weren't circumcised. So Zeldis decided to do some research. And when he learned what a circumcision procedure actually entailed — the surgical removal of the foreskin of the tip of the penis — he was outraged. Today, Zeldis is a senior strategy advisor for Intact America , an activist organization designed to educate people against circumcision, which it views as a medically unnecessary and cruel practice.
Adult Circumcision: The Basics
Circumcision surgical procedure in males involves either a conventional "cut and stitch" surgical procedure or use of a circumcision instrument or device. In the newborn period less than 2 months of age , almost all circumcisions are done by generalist physicians using one of three surgical instruments. Complications may also include bleeding , infection , reduction in sensation of the glans penis ,  and too little or too much tissue removal.
I'm cut, my dad is intact, and I didn't know until I was 40 even though we were nude around the house plenty when I was a kid. Thanks for the info Ron. My husband had this concern, likely because he was one of the boys made to match his daddy.
