Circumcision, is genital mutilation. When it is performed on someone who is not old enough to give meaningful consent, it is also sexual abuse. I support protecting children from having their bodies sexually violated in a way that will permanently affect their ability to experience sexual pleasure. This applies to both males and females.
It should be an individual's personal choice. A parent has no right to cut off a child's body parts except in medical emergencies, because the child's body is not the parents' property.Circumcision Removes the Most Sensitive Parts of the Penis
A sensitivity study of the adult penis in circumcised and uncircumcised men shows that the uncircumcised penis is significantly more sensitive. The most sensitive location on the circumcised penis is the circumcision scar on the ventral surface. Five locations on the uncircumcised penis that are routinely removed at circumcision are significantly more sensitive than the most sensitive location on the circumcised penis.
In addition, the glans (head) of the circumcised penis is less sensitive to fine touch than the glans of the uncircumcised penis. The tip of the foreskin is the most sensitive region of the uncircumcised penis, and it is significantly more sensitive than the most sensitive area of the circumcised penis. Circumcision removes the most sensitive parts of the penis.
This study presents the first extensive testing of fine touch pressure thresholds of the adult penis. The monofiliment testing instruments are calibrated and have been used to test female genital sensitivity.
