Circumcision and Premature Ejaculation

Most people think that circumcision will decrease premature ejaculation.  The concept is that, after circumcision, the head (glans) and frenulum lose their protection are constantly exposed to undergarments, losing sensitivity.  Makes sense intuitively but there have been studies that don’t prove this theory.

So if you have PE and are thinking about having a circumcision to prevent it, I suggest that you don’t go through the pain and expense.

How it works

The penis head is always lubricated thanks to the existence of the foreskin which facilitates sexual intercourse for men. The sensory nerves are stimulated, making the head of the penis the most sensitive area of the entire organ. The foreskin is another component of the penis that is extremely sensitive and composed from great stimulatory nerves. After having a circumcision, the removal of the foreskin can affect these areas and therefore lead to men having a lower sensation during intercourse.

A lot of people would argue that the foreskin plays an important part in avoiding premature ejaculation as one of its main roles is to offer sensory perception that will alert each man as they are reaching climax. Others have stated that because it is such a sensitive area and it offers a dramatic response to sexual stimulation, a circumcised penis will cause men climax too early during sex. People still argue on the matter of circumcision leading to premature ejaculation. However, a very strong belief is that discipline and self control can help a man control his ejaculation.

Circumcision and premature ejaculation

The issue of aesthetics is obviously a subjective one. The same thing applies to the issue of hygiene. Some people often tend to link circumcision to premature ejaculation. Others use to think that circumcision is actually a solution to premature ejaculation. It has long been believed that this theory is accurate, but today we know with certainty that there is no connection between circumcision and premature ejaculation. So is there any solution for men who are confronting themselves with the problem of premature ejaculation? Yes, there are ways through which men experiencing premature ejaculation problem can learn to control their ejaculation, but they require, besides knowledge, perseverance and practice with their partner.

What studies have to say

The results of a study conducted back in 2005 revealed that the time required to ejaculate was equal in both cases: before and after the circumcision was performed. However, another study that dates back to 2004, conducted by a urologist named Temucin Senkul, has proven that in some cases, circumcision will even improve the issue of premature ejaculation. While a study was carried out on 42 men has revealed promising results, doctor Chad Ritenous, professor of urology has mentioned that the results of this study were not conclusive and that no person should believe that circumcision is the definite cure for premature ejaculation.
