Hi me, and welcome to the boards.

Even though I'm a girl and hence don't know what it's like to have a penis at all, I'll give my humble opinion here:
I think no one here can tell you whether it's *better* to be circumsized or uncircumsized or what feels better for that matter.
Why? First of all, because we all prefer different things; and secondly as most of the time, circumcision is performed on infants, so most men can't compare penis feeling circumsized/uncircumsized from their own experience anyway. I'd guess that most guys here will say they are quite happy with the way their penis is, no matter whether they still have their foreskin or not. And does it matter? As long as you enjoy the way it feels when you masturbate whith your penis, I don't think, it does, does it?

And as to lubrication - we always recommend using stuff that was *made* to be used on your genitals. We're partial towards Astroglide and other silicone based lubes, such as pjur eros bodyglide (which is my personal fave, but not as widely available). You can, however, also use things like babyoil for male masturbation, but only when no partner or condom is involved (because oil based things destroy condoms).

Hope that could help, even though I'm a girl.

I am a girl bit I gon't think anyone can answer this question. Either U R circumsized or not. I don't think anyone got to experience sexual intimacy with both a circumsized and an uncircumsized penis.

Hhmm... As an uncircumsized male, I can say that perhaps it would be better to have foreskin. I say this because then your hand wouldn't ride up and irritate the sensitive skin below the glans and the glans itself. Vasoline makes half decent lube... And whatever you do, NEVER EVER use shampoo, or any facial cleansing products. In fact, avoid just about anything unless you find it at a sexshop saying "lube" on it or you know otherwise.

Ohhh me, why did you have to ask? Now I'm going to find out what I have been "missing," so to speak.

Is there an experience here that we don't know about, Shadow... What happens when you use that stuff?

Well, there are some males that go through circumcision in their teens. So, yeah, you COULD experience both.

Actually yes, there are a couple experiences here. During one long night at boarding school I got bored and since all my roommates were asleep I decided to jack off. I normally use vaseline as lube, but didn't have any. I saw the outline of my shampoo next to my bed and thought, "What the hell? It can't be that bad!" So, I applied and went on to do my business. The next morning, when I went to pee I nearly shrieked like a ninny! My foreskin was REALLY swollen, about 3 times its normal thickness! All around my glans too! It was incredibly sensitive for a couple days.

Not learning my lesson, I got bored another night and since I had no vaseline decided to try moisterizer.... Figuring that if it were moisterizer it would have to be good for the skin down there. Not quite so swollen as the shampoo, but still quite irritated. Jesus, I think the skin down there is so senstive that the acidity of water is enough to irritate it!!

In case you are wondering what you've been missing, the Inspiral condoms are supposed to be baggier at the tip to sorta simulate a foreskin. I wrote my thoughts about them in the Condoms, Lubes and more board, so check it out
