Why do some women prefer a circumcised penis?

Attractive woman in medical coat and glasses ready to answer sex related questions

Q: Why do some women prefer a circumcised penis, and sometimes even downright refuse to see guys who aren’t cut? I have been turned down a number of times due to my penis and its foreskin and I don’t understand why?

That’s a really interesting question and one that, while doesn’t have an ultimate answer, does have a few interesting (albeit not necessarily correct) reasonings behind it.

First off I am going to assume (I know, I know but bear with me) that you are most likely over 35 years old, and so are the women you are looking to date/hook up with. This assumption comes from the very real fact that for people of the older millennial and above generations circumcision was pretty much par for the course for all babies born with penises. Your dad, your brothers, your cousins. In fact probably the very first dicks most people of those age brackets ever saw was a circumcised one. Not in any sexual ways either, just as par for the course for many families who have mixed gender siblings and/or healthy attitudes to nudity and the naked body. Match that with pretty much every drawing (whether sketched realistically in a science text book or scrawled in blue pen on the school desk at the back of the classroom) of a penis being a circumcised one, and of course all the big cut cocks in pornography, it’s no wonder that, for the most part, for people of a certain age and above, that is what “normal” looks like. 

I can tell you from personal experience and from talking to women my age (I’m gen X, we don’t need numbers here) the first time I saw an uncut penis (I was about 17) I thought there was something wrong with it. I had never seen a foreskin before and I had absolutely NO idea what to do with it. I am also a little ashamed to say it grossed me out, that weird floppy bit of skin that no-one had ever told me existed, even though I stand by the fact that, for the early 90s, I got pretty good, progressive sex education from my school.

The next reason, again a wrong and unfair assertion borne from ignorance, misinformation, and lack of proper sex education for most people, is the idea that foreskins make a penis dirty. That urine and cum and all that icky stuff gets stuck and trapped inside the foreskin and makes it gross and smelly and ewwww don’t put that near me. These assumptions are unfair and wrong and are often used in the pro-circumcision arguments to sway people to the “cut is healthier” side. 

The thing is, with proper care and cleaning and education there is absolutely no difference in the “health” of a penis regardless of if the foreskin is present or not, and after around 20 years of experience working in the sex industry, I can safely say there is no difference in the way they fuck either.

So yeah, unfortunately the unlearning of what we have formed as very early ideas (especially ones that are constantly held up as the “ideal” by everything you see, hear, read, view, and consume) is a tricky business. If you think about it, it can probably be compared to a lot of body image issues women have when there is only one shape, size, proper-way-to-be-a-woman represented in every magazine, TV show and movie, and that very real feeling of inadequacy and not measuring up is a universal one perpetuated by a capitalist media hell-bent on selling you something, anything, just to be a little bit more normal because can’t you see you’re some sort of freak!

So what is the solution? In my (professional) opinion it’s pretty bloody simple actually. Education, normalising of nudity, normalising of differences and diversity, and just basic, inclusive sex education is vital in the fight towards body positivity, no matter what bit of the body we’re talking about, and hopefully will lead to more acceptance, and less people feeling like they have to ask questions like this in the future.

    One could say the same about inside a vagina being unhygienic. How does one clean inside their vagina after having sex? For a uncut guy we simply wash and clean then fold it away??

    Probably bc of the ability to last ai expect. However we foreskin owners should not be under-estimated! Abrasion of the knob can be manually performed and ai can tell you MY ability to last is phenomenal!

    OK, so do you like women with excess body hair, I am guessing that you don't. So, for a woman, the foreskin is a similar turnoff. It isn't attractive, it's baggy, especially if you are going to put the dick in your mouth, and if you don't lubricate sufficiently, a smooth "clean" penis is going to slip in a lot easier and less painfully than one that is uncircumcised

    It’s the most ignorant of arguments. Women do need to get a grip... pun intended. Uncut cocks are awesome.
    If you’re one of those chicks who says “ew get it away from me”, you my friend are missing out big time! Embrace the foreskin sister... or brother. xx

      Ta sister I grew up with nice healthy foreskin sorta like labia really and who of the women that like cut cock would cut off their labia completely ...further by the time a woman heads for my cock to suck it ain't baggy at all we've done all the eye contact mouth kissing and mind contact and maybe my glans are more sensitive too who knows I've never had a cut cock??

    I am always surprised when these discussions come up. As far as I am concerned Nature is king and nature intended a use for most, if not all of it, but definitely for the foreskin and clitoris.
    I agree with the comments here that circumcision (male or female) is barbaric, and serves very little purpose that cannot be managed otherwise.

    Smell (with very little exemption) is a result of bacteria. Bacteria is manageable with soap! That applies to your feet, genitals and underarms.

    I for one hate perfume and deodorant because I can smell the chemical component in it, so there is no choice (and so it should be) to shower well at least once a day and extras when going to do get to bed with a partner.
    I might be an odd one, but to me fresh sweat from a clean body is a pleasurable and enjoyable odour. If you can't enjoy that any more then my guess is your smell has deteriorated to the perfume industry chemical standard.
    Note: sweat from a smoker is not pleasant, at least not for my nose (sorry smokers)

    I have been told (and some males might have missed out on that education) from my parents in the early stages to pull the foreskin back to wash the penis. I don't remember how young I was , but it was as soon as I started washing me my-self.

    My theory is that in countries with low availability of water it might make some hygienic sense , but otherwise I don't see it.

    The 2 added benefits for the foreskin I can think off are maintaining the sensitivity (as mentioned already) and the benefit entering a dry vagina. You just pull the foreskin and enter in short strokes. the penis roles in rather then rubbing when entering and voela you hit/ reach the moisture required. No additional lubricant required!

    Additionally for woman panicking regarding cleanliness under the foreskin, wash penis thoroughly (nice foreplay with or without foreskin)) and/or use a condom. A condom is supposed to prevent viruses from transmitting, and viruses are a magnitude smaller than Bacteria. So it will protect you from smelly bacteria.

    That are my 2 cents worth to this subject.
    Regards

    All those cut cocks in porn stars who contracted AIDS really don’t lend weight to the “disease” theory. I am uncut and love it, And no woman has ever mentioned it to me. Besides soon this won’t even be a consideration, as few boys these days are getting circumcised thank god

      I don't know about you but I was shown, have shown and continue to clean everywhere including under my foreskin. If this is your experience then you need to find some different people. I've met circumcised guys who couldn't even clean under their arms .. sorry, just saying

    In my opinion i have found that an uncut penis is more sensitive and can receive more pleasure.. as the cut one has the glans exposed to rubbing on clothing etc and making it de sensitised to a certain degree. Sure it is a personal choice but id have to say its pretty rough when others have it stated on their profile that they only want cut penis’s and they find me attractive but wont accept my partner... lol .. bad luck.. they miss out!

    I hadn't had an uncut cock until I met my husband because it's not really a common thing in Asia but I must say personally I am now a fan of the circumcised penis.But it's more the way it's used than if it's uncut or cut but I find the circumcised one much cleaner and easier to give more sensation to with oral sex.

    Circumcised penises are WAY cleaner. Don’t carry HPV or the papilloma cervical cancer virus. No smegma or smell too These are Scientific Facts. Not myths. Women are right The ratio is 2 to 1 in favour of a glorious streamlined penis

      Not the older population. HPV vaccination is actually relatively new, in science terms.
      Those of us over 40 (at least) were never vaccinated against it. And being an Oncology nurse, unfortunately this is fact.
      Unfortunately (also from nursing experience) so is the fact that many either don’t know, or don’t bother, on cleaning properly, and they have ruined it for the rest of you.

    If a guy was to say he refused to see women with saggy breasts or large labia he would be torn to shreds on here, yet it is ok for women to say uncut cocks are gross? Double standards?

      Firstly this was a question posed by a member who wanted honest feedback from women about their cut vs uncut preferences. It would be unfair to censor comments and water down the responses which are all on topic and there seems to be a good cross section of positive and negative comments with a focus on hygiene based, we're guessing, on personal experience of those commenting.

      Uncut cocks are not gross.. generally they all look the same when they are hard and the foreskin is draw back( in most cases)... i have large labia and mainly men like that look.. although i must say that they are not shown so much in main stream porn and seen as ugly or weird to others . There will be no labioplasty for me!

    The best lovers I have ever had were uncut. Is there a correlation? I doubt it but if you're not used to foreskin it can feel awkward at first. Unfortunately the reality is that people do have preferences, whether that's for how they like their coffee, which side of the bed they prefer to sleep on and whether they prefer a cut or uncut penis. At least 3 of the men I've been intimate with chose to be circumcised as adults but none told me they had lost sensitivity although medical research tells us they most likely did. But given the amount of abuse penises get during daily masturbation it might not be circumcision which is to blame lol

    I am uncut and yes I am fastidious with cleanliness. I cannot understand those guys that have difficulty in pulling the skin back as this is due to the lack of early training in keeping it clean and healthy. The other real advantage is that you dont need and extra lubrication when you masturbate. If anyone is interested and used google they would come across heaps of legitimate studies the bottom line being that a cut cock has lost 70% of its sensitivity by the time the boy is 15. My observation is that most cut men 60+ can no longer get any sort of "stand up erection" and any atempty at orgasm involves lots of time and lube. Do you think I am biased?

      My observation, as a person who has had a lot of sex with men of that age bracket (sex worker for over 20 years) whovare both cut and uncut, nah. There's literally no correlation between ED and circumcision.
      Yes. I think you're biased.

    Can’t say that I have an issue with either cut or uncut, as long as they are clean. Most uncut guys foreskin pulls back nicely, so I’ve never noticed skin moving around.

    As long as they know what they’re doing with their cock, and other appendages, I don’t care what kind of package it is. Cocks are cocks, after all. :)

      Disagree.. there is a deliciousness to giving head to an uncut cock that a cut cock will never know.. it actually the giving of the skin that moves over the frenulum that stimulates and makes the whole act more sensuous and erotic and pleasing for the man

      The most attractive (to me) penis that I've ever 'had' was an ex who was uncut and it was just so beautiful. The foreskin pulled back completely to expose a throbbing knob underneath.
      I suppose if I'm truthful - I am not a fan of an uncircumcised cock where the foreskin doesn't pull back because that can be tricky and well, I ask the question I guess; if it's unable to be pulled back then how is it hygienic? This does baffle me.

      From a medical perspective- this is one of the “pro” reasons for circumcising. Many get to puberty and are simply unable to pull the skin back. Many resulting in a medical need for circumcising to occur. This is a much more difficult and painful procedure as adults, with a much longer healing time.

    I was one of a few boys my age who was uncut and yes the majority of the time it was for health reasons and i was sorry i hadnt been cut - there was also the theory that uncut giys came too quickly as the foreskin kept the head sensitive to touch - not sure if that was an issue but it sorted itself out - luckily i met some girls who loved an uncut cock although i must say a big cut cock looks better ....

      Like Covid 19 the SCIENCE is extremely important. Science is based on evidence and not opinions. Europe Is now in a virtual state of emergency. because they listened to politicians and not medical experts. Methods are available to detect the presence of lethal viruses under the foreskin. Jewesses don’t get cervical cancer because all their men are circumcised. There are pictures in the medical literature of HIV AIDS viral particles under the foreskin
