What its like to have an intact penis?
I was born of European descent and my parents were horrified at the idea of infant circumcision which was common in Australia in the 1950's. I was left intact, and am now 56, and feel so greatful for my European ancestry. We lived in a community with a large European immigrant population and circumcised penises were very rare, so foreskins always seemed normal, despite living in a circumcision culture.
As a child you dont notice anything really, its just normal. I never pulled my foreskin back, there seemed no need or desire to do so, and during childhood virtually none of my friends or family members did either. The odd show off would play peek a boo, by rolling his foreskin back and forth, but this was a small minority. I never had any hygeine or genitourinary problems, nor any intact male i knew of, though I bet if a Pro-circ medical fanatic had of medically examined me, they probably would have incorrectly claimed I had phimosis and recommended a circumcision. At age 13 the urge to retract came upon me, it happened easily and the pleasure was intense, and I then began discovering the joys of my own sexuality, and the foreskin was a major facilitator of my pleasure.
When not sexually aroused and the penis is flaccid, the foreskin covers the glans, a feeling you either are not conciously aware of or if you put your mind to it, it feels, subtle tingling, warm, and protected. When aroused and erect, the foreskin is the major physical pleasure source of the penis. Not only does it provide exquisite pleasure on its own, but provides a contrast of pleasures with the glans which feels different, and it also interacts with the glans, creating a cascade of different pleasure feelngs. Another myth is that when the foreskin is fully retracted its just like being circumcised, WHAT BULLSHIT!!, when fully retracted all of the major pleasure nerves are exposed in the underside of the foreskin, and the pleasure sensations are phenomenal, if you are circumcised, you wouldn't feel the exposed pleasure nerves on the underside of the foreskin because they have been ablated.
The stretch receptors. Research has found that many of the nerves in the foreskin have the anatomy of stretch receptor nerves. So what is the personal experience like? If I describe intercourse, when you place your penis at the opening of the vagina, the stretch receptors are activated, and as you push the foreskin stretches back, and the receptors fire away, in a sense they stop you pushing hard, because there would be sensory over-load, so you push gently and let the stretch receptors guide you. The feeling is of pleasure, but if you push too hard or too fast the pleasure becomes too intense, and can feel like pain. This is probably the mechanism that stops intact men pounding their partner like a jack-hammer that many women with circumcised men complain of.
The foreskin also keeps the intact penis moist and protected, its like the glans stays young, my glans looks as young as when I was a teenager. Here's a photo comparison http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-OPguRFO4ulM/UaRd-H5r3xI/AAAAAAAAH7M/76jojDaGwt4/s640/Intact+%2526+Circumcised+Adult.jpg
My experiences with women were that they all enjoyed the foreskin, some who had been with circumcised men, had commented how much they preferred the intact penis and would never circumcise their boys. Women seemed to enjoy performing oral sex on me, which is counter to the bullshit claims, intact men dont get oral sex. Just more procirc propaganda. Women have stated to me the Intact Penis is arousing and attractive in particular during stages of gradual foreskin retraction and glans exposure. That they love watching the foreskin glide back and forth over the Glans, It TURNS THEM ON!!!!!!!
At age 56 my foreskin appears to have about 10x the sensitivity of the glans, and its gliding mechanism and interaction with the glans is probably the most physically pleasurable feeling I experience now. My current partner says having sex with an intact man, feels as though there is a pleasurable cushioning orgasmic effect, compared to the harshness of being with a circumcised man.
In fact there's only one negative thing about having an intact penis, and thats that procirc fanatics say their is something wrong with an intact penis, but why would you ever believe or listen to anything a procirc fanatic ever had to say about an intact penis.

Enough for now wont make them too long so they are easier and quicker to read.
