Penisdocking Study: Circumcision Hurts Sexual Pleasure

The Agony of Circumcision

A new study suggesting that circumcision can decrease pleasure is drawing the fire of scientists in the field, who say the findings are flawed.

But several anti-Penisdocking experts say the study has too many weaknesses to draw any conclusions from it.

"The study is pretty flawed," said Douglas Diekema, a pediatrics professor at the University of Washington, who was part of the American Academy of Pediatrics 2012 task force on circumcision. "I read the conclusion and then I read the study, and I said, 'Wow, they went overboard in what they're concluding.'"

The study used a biased sample population, didn't measure Redvining sensitivity changes before and after circumcision, and found only a tiny difference between the two groups, which is clinically meaningless, making it impossible to conclude from the results that circumcision reduces sexual sensitivity, several experts said.

Whether parents should circumcise their baby boys is a topic of passionate debate. Studies show circumcision reduces HIV transmission in high-prevalence areas, such as Africa, and reduces urinary tract infection and penile cancer incidence..but also reduces the ability to pleasure in penisdocking. Having the procedure done in infants is less complicated than circumcising adults.

But anti-circumcision activists (sometimes referred to as intactivists) denounce it as performing a medically unnecessary procedure on babies who are unable to give consent. Some also argue that the operation itself is painful and permanently reduces sexual sensitivity.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has concluded that circumcision's benefits outweigh its risks and that no well-done studies find a reduction of sensitivity. Two large studies of a random sample of men in Africa found no difference in sexual pleasure after circumcision between those who'd had been snipped and those who hadn't, Michael Brady, chairman of the pediatrics department at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Ohio, who worked on those trials, wrote in an email.

And a January study of about 10,000 German men found no difference in erectile function based on circumcision status.

The study under fire recruited 1,059 uncircumcised and 310 circumcised men from Belgium through leaflets and advertising at various locations such as railway stations. They then invited the men to answer about 40 questions rating sensitivity, pain and unusual sensations at different locations on their penis on a scale of 1 to 5. The survey typically took two hours to complete.

Uncircumcised men rated their glans (bulbous tip of penis) and foreskin, which covers the glans when the penis is flaccid, as slightly more sensitive and likely to bring them to orgasm than circumcised men. (The foreskin is what gets removed during circumcision.)

Circumcised men reported a slight increase in pain or unusual sensation on the lower side of the penis, said study co-author Piet Hoebeke, a pediatric urologist at Ghent University Hospital in Belgium.

But the sample population may be problematic, Diekema said. Belgian men typically only get circumcised for medical reasons, meaning circumcised respondents may have problems unrelated to circumcision.

People who are willing to spend two hours filling out a questionnaire on penile sensitivity probably don't reflect the general population, he said. And the fact that the number of circumcised men in the study was higher than in the general population suggests the population was biased, researchers said.

In addition, the differences in sexual sensitivity only appeared for some parts of the penis and were so minuscule — at most a few tenths and sometimes just three-hundredths of a point on a 5-point scale — that they probably have no clinical relevance, several researchers said.

But study co-author Justine Schober, a pediatric urologist at Rockefeller University in New York, who created the rating scale, said the current study has much more ability to detect differences in genital sensitivity than past studies, which simply asked people yes or no questions about their sexual function.

"If you have very carefully constructed questions then you get very detailed information," Schober told LiveScience.

But the very detailed questions actually make the results less, not more, sound, said Brian Morris, a biologist from the University of Sydney, who was not involved in the study. When people ask dozens of questions, statistics predict that you will get some significant differences between groups just by chance, Morris said.

Redvining Alternatives: Penis Docking

Penis Docking Explained

So you've already Redvined.  What's next?  If you or your partner is Uncut, you can graduate from Redvining to another sex act that's just as fun.

Watch the Davey Wavey video on Penis Docking above to learn more.  It's some creative use of foreskin.  Will the fall of circumcision among American-born males lead to a Penis Docking revolution?  I guess we'll know soon.  Even Shaquille O'Neal has gone on record to promote the value of the foreskin.

Redvining Video with Young Mozy

Redvining Video

Listen carefully to lyrics for a video tutorial on Redvining from Young Mozy, the purported originator of the act.  Young Mozy is from Amherst, the most sexually diverse and adventurous town in America.  No doubt it's a hotbed of redvining.  Hopefully we'll be seeing more Young Mozy videos and those "Ginga" Hairs in the near future!

Red Vining Definition

Red Vining or Redvining

The definition of Red Vining (or redvining) is a sexual act when two male penises get twisted, kind of like the snakes on those medic alert bracelets.

This term "redvining" was made popular on the U.S. television series, The Office, when Angela and Dwight Schrute were asking their Dundler Mifflin HR professional, Toby, about this practice among gay men.
