Circumcision has been around since biblical times, and it is a surgical procedure that aims to remove the foreskin, also known as the prepuce. The main difference between a circumcised penis and an uncircumcised penis is simply the presence of the foreskin: a circumcised penis doesn’t have the foreskin while a non-circumcised penis does have the foreskin.

It is estimated that up to 39% of the male population across the globe have undergone the cut, with the majority of them being circumcised on or before their teens. Whether or not one opts for the cut once they hit adulthood is a matter of personal preference, though men are highly encouraged to consider going in for the cut for improved hygiene. As far as getting circumcised in a proper circumcision clinic in Montreal is concerned, here are a few things you need to know:

Appearance

As noted earlier, the only difference in the appearance between a circumcised penis and a non-circumcised penis is the presence of the prepuce: uncircumcised have it while the circumcised don’t have it.

Effects on the penis size

With the foreskin intact, a non-circumcised penis will appear to be slightly bulkier when flaccid. However, when erect, the foreskin will retract to a point that you may think it is not there. Consequently, it has no effects as far as the size of the penis when erect is concerned. However, there may be slight pain during erection when the foreskin tries to get pulled back as to expose the glans.

There may also be slight pain when one is having sex for the first time with an uncircumcised penis. The size of the circumcised penis, on the other hand, depends on the genes, which then determines the phenotype, also known as the physical expression of the penis.

Effects on hygiene

One of the biggest reasons for advances of adult circumcision in Montreal is proper hygiene. When it comes to cleaning, an uncut penis will require extra care compared to a cut penis. In most cases, people usually fail to clean the region under the foreskin, leading to the accumulation of bacteria, dead skin cells, and secretions which makes ground for smegma buildup. Smegma is what usually makes the penis smell and may also lead to inflammation of the foreskin – a condition known as balanitis.

A cut penis, on the other hand, doesn’t require any extra care. There is no foreskin that might promote smegma buildup and it is clean and dry most of the time. The only care it requires is normal cleaning when you take a bath, and that will be sufficient for its hygiene.

Effect on lubrication during sex

The foreskin usually proved natural lubrication to the penis. This may have certain benefits during sexual rendezvous. For those who have undergone adult circumcision, however don’t have this natural lubrication. But there is no strong evidence to suggest that there will be a variation in sexual pleasure between the circumcised and the uncircumcised.
