Exploring Gay Mens’ Opinions On Circumcision

Michael Henry explores gay mens' opinions on the pros and cons and attraction to circumcised versus uncircumcised penis

Funny/smart guy Michael Henry and friends pull back the curtain on a subject that seems to always draw strong opinions in the gay world – circumcised versus uncircumcised.

Michael is hanging out at the park getting a lesson from Clint and Adrian about the importance of moisturizing elbows and knees, although Henry doesn’t really get how elbows get in the game (“I understand knees, but why elbows – I’m never on my elbows…”).

Mathew drops by and immediately assumes the discussion about skin is, of course, about foreskin. Lines are immediately drawn in the sand on the topic with Michael being a big fan of foreskin, but Clint and Adrian are a hard pass.

Fortunately, Mathew (who has a degree in circumcision from Yale U?) is here with all kinds of factoids from the forefront of foreskin. Clint offers that he thinks it’s “unnatural to be uncircumcised,” leading Mathew to inform him, “It’s literally the opposite.”

Do gay men prefer or say no to uncircumcised penis?

The discussion moves into several pros and cons of having or not having foreskin including hygiene, sensitivity issues, and appearances. Along the way, Michael drops the statistic that “76 to 92 percent of American boys are circumcised versus 20 percent elsewhere.” He then declares, “Circumcision is genital mutilation!”

It’s a terrific, lighthearted, (somewhat) non-judgmental chat on the topic. And the comments on the YouTube page followed suit with many underscoring how the vast minority of men in the world (outside of the U.S.) remain intact. Many commenters felt American men may have a preference for UC peen because it’s just what they know. Most of those who have their foreskin were happy they do.

Like all of Michael Henry’s short films, he starts a discussion (with humor) that really would only every happen out in the open in a gay setting. 

What do you think readers? Do you have a preference or opinion when it comes to cut vs uncut peen? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.

  1. People always want what they don’t have. Having been circumcised at 40 was the best thing I could ever do for myself. Prior to being circumcised it was disgusting the amount of smegma that would build up on a daily basis, no matter how hygienic it was kept with daily showering and cleaning under the skin. This doesn’t include the bladder infections (there were numerous ones) and the tearing of the foreskin when trying to retract it or even relations.
    I would have all of my sons circumcised at birth so as to not make them suffer as I did for 40 years. BTW my brother also had to be circumcised at 40 for the same reasons.

  2. My boyfriend & I are both cut & both prefer cut. I personally find cut dicks 100x hotter but have friends who think uncut is hot, and others who like both cut & uncut.
