Sex Advice

Dear Dr. Locker: How is sex different with an uncircumcised penis?

Answer from Dr. Locker

The foreskin is most noticeable when a man is not erect. So when he’s erect, during intercourse, especially if you’re using a condom, the difference may not even be noticeable.

For most uncircumcised men, the foreskin automatically retracts when they have an erection. It may move back and forth during sex. In some uncircumcised men, the foreskin may not retract fully, even when erect. There are some who say that the head of their penis is too sensitive unless the foreskin is over it even when erect. As with everything with sex, it’s individual, so if your potential partner is uncircumcised talk about this with him.
