A new study in the International Journal of Men’s Health shows that circumcised men have a 4.5 times greater chance of suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) than intact men, revealing what appears to be a significant acquisition vector. Researchers Dan Bollinger and Robert S. Van Howe, M.D., M.S., FAAP found a strong association between circumcision and ED in their survey of 300 men (OR = 4.53, p=.0058). What other studies support this finding and what could be an underlying cause?

Thanks for posting, Dan! I know we've had a lot of talk about the possible connection between circ and ED, so it's good to see you studying it!

Hey Dan I used to see you at Y/A answering questions. You are doing loads of good for the intactivist movement. The circumcision decision maker is a great concept and yeah, your a cool guy. The viagra sales alone were a telling sign but it's nice to have some scientific data now.
