    Post Uncircumcised vs. Circumcised? Thoughts From One Circumcised at Age 16


    *Ads Disappear After 100 Posts*
    I was PM these questions and I think they will be very benifital in the Boys Puberty forum. For anyone who doesnt already know I was circumcised at the age of 16 so I get many questions about this knowlage of both cut and uncut and I think these are really good questions.



    1. What was your uncut penis like before the surgery? Anything like mine? Pain when you touch the head and difficulty retracting? ----- It was exactly the way you have explained your penis too be. I could pull my foreskin back when I was soft but it may get stuck and really hurt, I also couldnt pull it back when I was hard either. If you are uncut then the head should be pretty sensitive to touch as the end of your penis has alot of nerve endings.

    2. After the surgery, was there lots of pain? The head has to go thru desensitizing since it's exposed now so did it hurt? Even if you were in bedrest did like, the fabric of your pj pants or whatever cause you any pain?------After the surgery it really didnt hurt I was walking about ect. as I had a dressing on it. The second day after the surgery was hell!! It didnt stop bleeding and the stiches stick into it and its all sore. If your circumcised they too touch the head of your penis doesnt hurt so when I was cut that really caused no pain at all, but the rubbing of the boxer shorts was very irritating.

    3. How long did it take for the bleeding and swelling to stop? Did it take a long time before you could get up and walk around or were you bedridden for awhile?------In my case I had ALOT of bleeding for a week it bleed almost non-stop, it is usually a few days afterwards that it stops but mine was much longer, dont know why. I was in bed for that week and believe me that was the worst part staying in bed for a week, its hell!!!

    4. I read one of your other posts saying you were 6 inches (hey, just like me!) but does your penis look any bigger or smaller now that you got circumcised?------After I was circumcised my penis does look much better and yes the size of it looks bigger but unfortunally isnt really just visable.

    5. Does it feel a lot better? I was offered a blowjob but I kinda denied it cuz I was afraid it would hurt too much on my uncut head. Was your first time painful? And how is it afterwards? Masturbation too..better or worse? And can you touch the head of your penis whenever you want now?------Yes it does feel alot better and is much cleaner than an uncut penis. The pleasure of foreplay and sex doesnt really increase but the time it takes to ejaculate is much longer which is a good thing. As I said earlier I can touch the head of my penis whenever I want because it isnt as censitve as an uncut penis.

    and finally, how in the world did you gain the courage to talk to your parents about this!?!----Well I told my mother that I had a problem while I was in tears because of the nerves but I knew I had to tell her, then after that I just got use to talking to my friends and family about it so I dont really mind anymore.

    In your case if you are any younger than 14 the I would just wait and see if your foreskin will retract in due course because some people are just late bloomers but if you are 15 or older and it is causeing you bother then I would speak to someone, it is nothing to worry about, believe me!!!!!

    I copied this post into the FAQ's as it addresses some questions frequently asked about the differences between being circumcised vs. uncircumcised, and who better to provide them than someone who has actually had it "both ways?"

    Keep in mind that this is just one opinion. As with anything else, different guys might report different experiences and feelings about this. If anyone else has been circumcised at a later age and would like to contribute their comments on the before vs. after ramifications, please start a thread in the Boys Puberty forum and ask that it be considered for merging/inclusion in this FAQ's thread.

    Another member, "Troy" (screen name "something1235) was circumcised in May 2004, on his 15th birthday! :eek: He has given me permission to put together some of the numerous posts he made before and after the surgery.

    Prior to surgery, Troy was looking forward to circumcision. He had been having trouble with phimosis (tight foreskin), but had always wanted to be circumcised anyway, so he was happy to be able to have this operation done. However, he had been concerned about how much it was going to hurt to have the procedure done.

    Well apparently it sure did! The day of having the surgery - shortly after the operation, Troy wrote this:

    Quote Originally Posted by someone1235

    also for anyone getting this surgery done DO NOT PEE FAST!!! it will make you fall down crying!!!
    But things improved dramatically from there. Only a week later, Troy had this to say:

    Quote Originally Posted by someone1235

I was just (circumcised) a week ago and the doc was surprised how fast i healed but he said it was "okay to do anything you want with it...." and i said "even jack off?" and he just gave me thumbs up...lol it was hilariousif any of you want to be cut i would HIGLY RECOOMEND IT!!! it feels RREEEEALLLY GOOD! jw...what are some technique you guys use b/c before i always just did the normal way b/c all the wierd ways the foreskin would get all F-ed up. what is the craziest way to jack off?
    Troy also had this to add to sum up the whole experience:

    Quote Originally Posted by someone1235

At first your penis will still feel numb which is a good thing then they will give you Tylenol w/ Codeine to help with the pain and about 1 week later you can do anything you like again! I like it the way mine as and I suggest this procedure if you are thinking about it.

    Troy's twin brother Brian, known here as "Brian555" also underwent circumcision at age 15, and had this to say in response to a thread asking for a comparison in the sensations of uncircumcised vs. circumcised masturbation.

    Here are the comments of another member:

    until they entered me in the room. and man I started flipping. I was not reassured at all. man, I was operated just months before with general anestesic and all, for something way more serious, I didn't flip only half as much. so they gave something to calm me down, and man it did calm me. they must have not realized that I was only a 12 years old kid, 4 feet 9, and not an elephant, coz what they gave had effects on me for 2 or 3 hours, I was nearly KO. I walk up with a bandage around my stuff. coz they didn't use stuff like plastibell or clamp-something. they sewed it back with stitches. you can bet that it's feels strange to see your stuff wrapped around with a bandage, and its even stranger when you remoove the bandage and you see stitches on your penis.

    they also forgot to give me medication to prevent boners. coz when I got one, it hurt like hell, that I nearly cried (I said : nearly). any wrong movement also hurt, so basically I stayed in pyjamas pants for a full week (I skipped school). It hurt a bit again for another week. I went to school with still the bandage for two weeks, and thanx allah nobody saw me in that state (save my family). with time, stitches fell off. I was able to j/o again about a month after the surgery.

    just in case you're wandering, I was cut high and tight, the frenulum was completely removed. Also if you're wondering, I feel very fine cut or uncut, and it didn't really change my masterbation habits

    Default Uncircumcised vs. Circumcised? Thoughts From One Circumcised at Age 16

    I've given this a lot of thought and I've had some very long discussions with some older friends about this, and I wanted to post my feelings.

    March 22nd I was circumcised, thats the fact here.

    I've come to realize a few points.. I made some major mistakes

    1) I listened to other kids / teenagers about "what is best", and not my parents and doctors.
    2) Even if you decide to do something like this against your parents suggestions, you should always tell the doctor "this is what I want, how can I get that" And then take their advice. When you think you know it all and insist that it be done a certain way only, your bound to get some screw ups.

    The point of the matter is, I was too young to make the decision and I did it, and I have to live with the consequences of it.

    Granted, IMO there's not all bad things from this. There's a lot I like, but it could have been a lot better. will talk about both.

    Good:
    1: I like the looks of my penis when I am erect. I never did like the over hang and extra foreskin. I think it looks better with the head out and ready to get action.
    2: blowjobs feel much better
    3: I dont have to clean under my foreskin, and beleive me with as long as my foreskin was it wasnt easy when i was soft to clean it.
    4: I have literally no scar line, so this is a good thing. you can only tell where it happened because the skin changes color sightly.

    Bad:
    1: because I was stupid and wouldn't listen to the suggestion of my doctors, my circumcision ended up being extremely tight because I was DUMB. I didn't think she was taking off the right amount of skin and I asked for more. Again this is my fault. Now I have to live with being cut really tight.
    2: Because I'm really tight jacking off without lube is impossible. I've tried every way i can think of and I've had others try to do it on me, it just doesn't work, it hurts too much. This means i have to have some type of lube every time i want to JO.. suckage. So Masturbation is worse overall.
    3: my penis when im soft looks significantly smaller. I knew this before i went into it and im not that worried about it, but it does suck


    The Not sure if Good or Bad:
    1: I've noticed that when I get "extremly" hard, my scrotum gets pulled up a bit on my shaft and doesnt hang right. My balls now dance like mad when i whack off and im not sure if thats good or bad, some people say its good but.. is it?
    2: orgasms come faster when I am getting a blowjob.
    3: orgasms come slower when I am jacking off and it takes a lot more work.


    In finishing this post, I think I made a mistake in getting circumcised. Operating on a prepubescent penis is just not something that can be done accurately. I think everyone should have a choice in the matter, but I think people should be making the choice for the right reasons, not the wrong reasons. And not because they are stubborn.. that goes either way. I realize and I know that I cant go back and undo what I've done. I have to accept the fact that I got what I asked for. I got circumcised. I did not get the results I wanted, nor anywhere close to it. But I did in fact get what I asked for and this is something I will have to live with, because I made the choice.

    Whose fault was it? Mine. I accept that responsibility.

    I'm sorry to my friends who I've complained and cried to, and I thank those for giving me someone to talk to. I love yall. Thanks to everyone reading this post as it makes me feel a lot better to get it off my chest and come 'clean' about my feelings and results. Maybe someone else will take advice from my lessons learned and not make the same mistakes I did, and get the results they really wanted.

    Default My Circ Story by trollh8r

    After 2 yrs of procrastination on my part I finally sat down and wrote out my story about my operation and how I came to coming to the decision I made.



    I decided to get the operation done when I realized that I was cut but then yet I wasn’t. When I was born my parents had me circumcised but nothing was removed but overhang so I had a EXTREMELY loose circumcision. I confided in a friend and she gave me the courage to e-mail my father since I was too nervous to talk to my parents in person. My father was very nice about it as I told him I was nervous about asking him. He first sent me to our family doctor since he wasn’t going to look down there. She informed me and my dad that I was semi-uncut and that I could have it done if I so choose but needed to go through a specialist. I went through the specialist and of course they were professional about it. They had me covered up in the office and only uncovered my area when they examined the area and then had me pull my pants back up and they talked to me about the op. he told me what and how he would do it and in a few weeks I was to come back for the op. in an outpatient surgery. I went to the hospital and checked in; they did all the vital stats and hooked me up to the IV. And asked what I was there for and such. They doc came in and reassured me he asked if I was nervous and I admitted I was a little bit so they gave me some “happy juice” in my IV to call me down. I was wheeled in and was given general anesthesia. (sleep) I woke up 2 hours later in the recovery room and the op. was done. I was cut without any clamps, plastibells or any other common devices, mine was done as freehand and the line where I was cut blends right in with the glands. I had to look and all I could see was a bandage. I had to wait for 2 hrs till I was released; they had to make sure I was stable after the op. When I left I was on morphine and couldn’t feel anything. While at home I was on oxycotin and because of that there was no pain except for the nighttime erections that pulled on the stitches. The second day I woke up and was allowed to remove the bandages. My penis was extremely swollen and I had to pee in to a bottle because my urine when everywhere. By the third day I wasn’t feeling any pain and was stopping the pain pills. And now 2 yrs after I feel I made a great decision to get cut. Now that it has been two years I can say in my opinion that there is no difference in feelings and or pleasure in masturbation and or sex.

    This is a comment I just now found posted on a separate blog on this subject on WebMD:

    ******

    "To anyone who needs info on circumcision. I am a 26 yr old male who was just circumcised a week ago. The surgery was not bad. I woke up to a bit of pain but i was totally out of it due to the anthesia. Once i got home and took some painkillers i was good. You should take a good 4-10 days off from work/school. The first 2 days are the worst as i kept having erections while trying to sleep and believe me they were painful. So i barely slept the first 2 days. If you experience the same problem try sleeping on your side with ur knees curled up and try not to drink anything a tleast 3 hrs before you go to bed. Having a full bladder can also cause erections. By the second day i had to take my wrap off and trust me your penis will look scary but thats normal. Another problem i had was not being able to wear any boxers or briefs because the stitches were constantly being touched. I also had an infection on my 4th day, which are normal but you should get it checked out by the doc ASAP."
