Q8. Will having a circumcision affect my sex life?

A8. This is an issue which worries a great deal of men. They are concerned about any loss of sensitivity in that area which may also affect sexual performance.

There are men who find that they have reduced sexual sensation which then impacts upon sexual activity. This can also cause psychological problems as well.

However, some research findings suggest that there is no difference in penis sensation between circumcised and uncircumcised men.

There are some men who find that their sex life is the same as before surgery, some who suggest that it has improved and others who argue that it has worsened.

The jury is still out on this one.
