Hubby has been told he needs a circumcision. I have no experience with a cut one. Does anyone have any experience with one? Is there a preference?

I remember seeing my first cut one: I only then understood why it is so popular with partners. Way tmi: Looks, smells, tastes, feels better.

 Defs smells better

 I've been with both. My husband is uncut and never smells bad. Maybe the men your referring to had poor hygiene!

Hubby been told he needs to be circumcised and you’re worried about yourself 😂😂

 Yep 🤣

I posted earlier in this thread about my partner being circumcised by his choice before we met. His advice for your husband is that circumcisions can have different results and to make sure that the surgeon understands what your husband wants.

Sorry if this is TMI, but ccording to my partner, the "options" include how much skin to remove (and so whether there is moveable skin left on the shaft or the skin is quite tight), where to place the cut (which dictates how far down the shaft the scar is), and whether to remove the "banjo string" underneath the head. And here was me thinking all circumcisions were the same. Who knew! I am sure a Google search will assist if you want to know more. Good luck with it :-)

 Wow, I didn’t realize. But after an inspection of SO, I see what you mean. He has not movement when hard. Looks amazing.

I am not fussed. But found those with the skin last longer in bed. My husband is so sensitive and comes so quick it's frustrating

 My husband is cut and he doesn't come fast. I think that is a separate thing altogether.

Definitely better cut. Much cleaner less smelly nicer all round ;)

My partner chose to be circumcised at 23 (before me met) after never liking having a foreskin and growing up in the 70s and 80s with mostly circumcised peers. He had a girlfriend at the time he had it done and I just asked him what she thought before and after and he said she didn't care one way or the other. I am glad he is circumcised. It's just so, well, handsome and sexy! I'm against doing it to babies though. Let them choose when they're old enough.

Would love to hear from those who have tried the same one with and then without

He'll probably be super sensitive for a while afterwards until the nerves settle and the skin that has been covered most his life builds up resistance. It's still just a penis and works the same way. I probably prefer circumcised but maybe just because my husband is (was done as an adult too) and it's what I've been enjoying for the last 10 years 😝

 Thanks. A gf told me i’d prefer it but didn’t feel I could ask why, so been wondering. Is it that different?

 Honestly, I don't really know why some prefer one over the other? I like the way my husband looks but can't say I ever remember thinking badly of uncircumcised? I think it is just purely a personal thing. Intimacy wise I don't feel like there is any difference except maybe the head being marginally more prominent.

I will say that you may need to change your toilet mats more often as after the op it takes a while to get used to peeing again ;)

I didn't get my son done and when he was 9 we had to make the decision to have him done due to a medical condition....your husband will be in a lot of pain afterwards

 I have replied to a couple of posts here saying my SO was circumcised before we met. He says that he wasn't in pain, but it was just uncomfortable and he was conscious to be careful with his remodelled penis until it healed. Seems like different people have different experiences about the pain level.

When my husband and I were first together he was uncut, but got cut due to phimosis. I have to say... It impacted sex significantly :( Movable skin makes the whole experience more comfortable for the man, and easier for his partner to pleasure him.
If he has phimosis, usually there are other options besides circumcision. You can use steroid creams and stretching. If it is really bad, you can get a dorsal slit, which widens the opening without removing tissue. My husband very much wishes that he would have pursued one of those other options instead.

I'm obviously the exception to the rule, I prefer uncut. As for those saying it's cleaner etc, it all come down to personal hygiene!!

SO isn’t done. But I recall it is nicer to be face to face with if it is hatless, iykwim
