I was having a conversation with my girlfriends recently and, turns out, a lot of them actually prefer guys who are circumcised. We had a heated discussion about the benefits and disadvantages of dating those who choose to go for the good ol' "sniparoo". The majority prefers guys who aren't wearing turtlenecks, if you know what I mean.\nThen, a few days later, I saw a trending post on the internet about a doctor who botched a ton of infant circumcisions... I took it as a sign and figured that the universe wanted me to write an article about the pros of dating a circumcised guy.\n1. It's aesthetically pleasing\nAccording to some women, it looks better, healthier and more sexually appealing. Certain girls admit to being turned on just by looking at a circumcised penis.\n2. Lower risk of STDs and infections\nThere are lots of health benefits associated with circumcision, such as "a lower risk of developing urinary tract infections and sexually transmitted diseases, and the prevention of such conditions as balanitis (inflammation of the glans) and phimosis (inability to retract the foreskin)." In addition, circumcision reduces the risk of heterosexually acquired HIV infection in men by approximately 60%.\n3. Circumcised guys last longer\nTemucin Senkul, a urologist at GATA Haydarpasa Training Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey found that circumcised men last longer between the sheets... we can all agree that both partners can benefit from this wonderful capacity.\n4. It's more hygienic\nIt's not a myth, it's common sense. A bigger surface area means more bacteria. In addition, a lot of unwanted things can accumulate under the skin of those who choose to stay natural. In order to avoid unpleasant smells and infections, an uncircumcised man is supposed to thoroughly wash his private parts more frequently than those who have a circumcised penis.\n5. It's more pleasurable\nEven though it's a matter of preference, a lot of women prefer circumcised penises. According to witnesses, it creates more closeness between the partners. There is no "extra" skin in between two lovers, which, consequently, makes a more authentic union.
