Circumcised Penis Vs. Uncircumcised Penis

Penis circumcision is a surgical operation by which the penis foreskin is removed. However, for the uncircumcised penis, the foreskin is remaining. The difference between circumcised and uncircumcised penis is including hygiene practices and appearances.

Through the years, people used to get circumcised for different reasons. We mention:
– Religious reasons for people following Muslim or Jewish faith.
– Family tradition and history, so the person should follow.
– Cultural reasons.
– Health reasons, since a person is subject to a foreskin infection.

According to a study dating to 2016, statistics estimate that 39% of males around the world have a circumcised penis. The same study claims that the areas with the highest rates of circumcised penises are the Middle East, South Korea, and the United States.


Uncircumcised: In an uncircumcised penis, the foreskin is covering the penis head or glans when it is not erected. So the penis head won’t be visible. When man erects, the foreskin would retract to expose the glans.

Circumcised: In a circumcised penis, there is no foreskin. The glans would be always in the open, even when you are not erect. You should remark a tiny difference in the texture of the skin where the foreskin is eliminated. The penis skin closer to the body would be thicker, however, the skin closer to the head would be more sensitive.


Uncircumcised: When it comes to hygiene, an uncircumcised penis needs more attention. You have to regularly clean the foreskin to avoid bacteria, oil and dead skin cells which can cause smegma.

Smegma is known as foreskin and glans inflammation. Therefore, this can make foreskin retraction difficult and even impossible.

Circumcised: A circumcised penis does not need additional care. Washing it every time you bath is enough.

On the other hand, you may notice that the penis skin is getting drier and to prevent this just avoid tight pants and keep wearing loose underwear.

Penis Size

Uncircumcised: When you are not erect, the foreskin makes your penis look a little bit bulkier. When you erect, the foreskin disappears. To resume, it won’t in any way affect your penis size when you erect.

Circumcised: Scientifically defined, the penis size is based on the human genes. It determines the physical expressions of the penis. When you have good blood flow to the penile tissues, this can enhance your penis size.

Actually, removing the foreskin does not destroy other penile tissues so it won’t impact your penis size when you erect.

Sexual Sensitivity

Uncircumcised: According to a 2016 study, for uncircumcised penis, the foreskin is the most sensitive part of stimulation by the touch. On the other hand, the study explains that the pleasure experience would be the same as a circumcised penis.

Circumcised: A 2011 study claims that men with a circumcised penis can face orgasm difficulties. In 2012, another study claimed that the 2011 study did not show any direct link between orgasm and circumcision.


Uncircumcised: Having an uncircumcised penis does not mean that you have fertility issues. Actually, testicles are responsible for the production of sperm and not the penis. The health status, the lifestyle and the diet are the main factors of your fertility.

Circumcised: Having a circumcised penis helps to avoid risks of infections such as balanites. Therefore, avoid any kind of inflammation and good hygiene. Still have no evidence either whether circumcision affects fertility or not.
