<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">The study included 373 sexually active men aged 30-57 years of whom 255 were circumcised (mean age 37.1 years) and 118 were not (mean age 38.2 years). Of the 255 circumcised men, 138 were sexually active before circumcision, and all were circumcised after the age of 20 years. To address the effects of circumcision on the quality of sex life, including masturbation, a modified Brief Male Sexual Function Inventory (BMSFI) which included additional questions about whether sex life and masturbatory pleasure had improved or worsened after circumcision.<br><br>
Analysis of the results showed that there were no significant differences in sexual drive, erection, ejaculation and ejaculatory latency time between circumcised and uncircumcised men. Masturbatory pleasure decreased after circumcision in 48% of the respondents, while 8% reported increased pleasure. Masturbatory difficulty increased after circumcision in 63% of the respondents but it was easier in 37%. About 6% answered that their sex lives improved, while 20% reported a worse sex life after circumcision.</td>

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">In addition, there was an approximately 9% incidence of severe penile scarring or uncomfortable erections from curvature or tethering after circumcision.</td>

Saw that too...<br><br>
the thing is, these men underwent circumcisions for "problems" that they had as well. Just imagine how horrific the research results would be if they took only healthy normal men with foreskins and cut them off <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: .

This study has a lot of good info in it. It debunks the "uncircumcised leads to premature ejactulation myth" once again and also emphasizes that not all men like the results....so why perform it on infants?????!!!!!!

actually these are men getting circed as adults because that's the way they do it in S. Korea. So this really does show that circ in healthy adult males harms sexuality in more men than not.
