My girlfriends and I have heard that an uncircumcised guy's penis is more sensitive tham one that is circumcised. Has anyone heard of this and is this true? Does it have something to do with the foreskin being left natural? One of my friends believes that a circumcised guys penis is less sensitive beacause its been traumatized by being cut on when they were a baby. Also the foreskin may have more nerve endings??

Can anyone give a sensible response?

It's not necessarily true. It's not necessarily untrue, either. Some men who are uncircumcized claim that they are more sensitive than circumcised men -- but how would they know, really? How do you compare sensitivity when any given man can only know one or the other at any given time? You don't.

Penis sensitivity is an *INDIVIDUAL* thing. I have known men who were circumcized who were very very sensitive, even hypersensitive. I have known uncircumcised men who were not all that sensitive. And vice versa.

I've read that it is. Makes sense too. Uncircumsides guys have their "heads" protected in a way against rubbing against pants etc. . ., but circumsised ppl dont, so they get more used too hit. Supposedly similiar to the way the clitoral hood ( thats the right name right? ) works to protect over stimilation of the clit just from normal rubbing and stuff.
