We identified 10 studies, which described a total of circumcised and uncircumcised men who were evaluated for the association of circumcision with male sexual function.
However, the biological mechanisms by which circumcision is protective remain incompletely understood. Furthermore, we provide evidence that the genital microbiome may be an important driver of this immune activation. However, the biological mechanism by which circumcision confers this protection remains poorly understood.

The human foreskin is highly innervated, 5 21 29 and vascularized 29 sensitive erogenous tissue. Removal of the foreskin circumcision interferes with normal sexual function. This page brings together, in one place, scattered material relevant to the study of the role of the foreskin in human sexuality, and the dysfunction caused by its amputation.
Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin from the human penis. After that, a circumcision device may be placed, and then the foreskin is cut off. Topical or locally injected anesthesia is used to reduce pain and physiologic stress.
New research conducted at Queen's University has found the penises of men who were circumcised as newborns are no less sensitive than intact uncircumcised penises. Jenn Bossio, a clinical psychology PhD candidate, studied 62 men between the ages of 18 and A total of 30 were circumcised and 32 were not.
