    Nope, no disadvantage here.

    Only because they removed it later in life ... you cut of an area of skin and you end up with dead nerve ending

    I think people hate uncut cocks that can't be pulled back.
    Gross.
    And you can't enjoy sucking the glans.

    Circumcision DOES reduce sexual pleasure by making manhood less sensitive

    Men who are circumcised are in for some bad news - it puts them at a disadvantage in the bedroom, according to experts.

    A study found those who've had their foreskin removed as children or adults experience less intense sexual pleasure and orgasm than their peers.

    'We're not saying less sexual activity or satisfaction, but sensitivity,' senior author Dr Piet Hoebeke, from Ghent University Hospital, said.

    The practice is common in the U.S, with three-quarters of men having the procedure for non-religious reasons. However, it is rare in the UK, with a rate of just six per cent, according to World Health Organisation figures.

    Some religions, such as Judaism and Islam, consider circumcision part of religious practice.

    British doctors say that although it can reduce the risk of some types of infection the risks associated with routine circumcision outweigh any potential benefits.

    The latest study surveyed 1,369 men over the age of 18, who responded to leaflets handed out in train stations across Belgium.

    The men were asked whether they were circumcised, and were then asked to rate how sensitive their penis was, how intense their orgasms were and whether they experience any pain or numbness when they are aroused.

    Overall, 310 men who took the survey were circumcised, and 1,059 were not. Each rated how sensitive their penis was on a scale from 0 to five, with higher numbers being the most sensitive.

    For example, uncircumcised men reported an average sensitivity score of 3.72 when they or their partner stroked the head of their manhood compared to 3.31 amongst circumcised men.

    'It's a significant difference,' Hoebeke said.
    Uncircumcised men also reported more intense orgasms.

    One possible explanation for any potential difference in sensitivity is that a man's foreskin may protect his penis's head from rubbing against underwear and clothing. It's possible, the researchers write, that friction makes the head of the penis thicker, drier and ultimately less sensitive.

    The researchers also found circumcised men were more likely to report more pain and numbness during arousal than uncircumcised men, which Dr Hoebeke said is likely due to scar tissue.

    'I'm amazed that people report pain during sexual pleasure… that was unexpected,' he told Reuters Health.

    However, Dr Aaron Tobin from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, who was not involved in the study, said: 'The medical evidence and the benefits of male circumcision are abundantly clear.'

    The American Academy of Pediatrics says the benefits of male circumcision outweigh the risks, but stops short of recommending universal circumcision.

    "I want you to be circumcised, just like I was!"

    Author Insights: Reducing Male Circumcision Rates Increases Health Care CostsNot providing coverage for male circumcision may save insurers money in the short-term, but such a policy may result in considerably higher costs in the long-term because uncircumcised individuals are more likely to acquire certain infections and cancers related to those infections, according to a study reported today in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine by researchers from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

    Male circumcision rates have been decreasing in the United States, from about 79% of males born in the 1970s and 1980s to about 63% born in 1999 and about 55% born in 2010. The decline comes even as research has demonstrated that circumcision helps prevent certain serious infections. There are several reasons for the decline in circumcision rates, but one factor is decreased coverage by insurers and Medicaid.

    To examine the financial costs and benefits related to circumcision, the researchers used a computer-based simulation model to estimate infection rates and costs in a US population that would occur if the male circumcision rate were reduced to 10%, the percentage seen in Europe. They estimated that HIV infections among men would increase by about 12%, herpes simplex virus type 2 infectious would increase by almost 20%, and high- and low-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) infections would increase by about 29% (high-risk HPV strains are associated with an increased risk of penile or cervical cancer). Women would also experience increased rates of infection. Lifetime health care costs would increase by about $400 for every male and $43 for every female.

    Study coauthor Aaron A. R. Tobian, MD, PhD, an assistant professor of pathology, medicine, and epidemiology at Johns Hopkins, discusses his team’s findings:

    “The medical evidence for the benefits of male circumcision is extremely clear. We now have 3 randomized controlled trials showing that male circumcision decreases HIV and genital herpes, as well as human papillomavirus, which causes penile cancer among men. One trial also followed female partners and found they also had reductions in levels of human papillomavirus.

    “So we know the benefits of male circumcision, but we wanted to construct an economic model showing the consequences of not circumcising newborn males. If our male circumcision rate was to go down to 10%, the additional health care costs over a 10-year period would be $4.4 billion. And this is probably the most conservative estimate. This analysis focuses on direct medical costs alone, so there is nothing about other factors such as patient transportation costs and productivity loss.

    “During the same time circumcision rates have fallen, state governments have been increasingly decreasing Medicaid coverage for male circumcision. One of the coauthors of an editorial that accompanied our study [Arleen A. Leibowitz, PhD] has previously shown there’s a correlation between a lack of Medicaid coverage and reduced numbers of infant circumcisions.

    “The bottom line is we believe the federal Medicaid program should reclassify male circumcision from an optional service for states to cover to one that all state Medicaid programs should cover.”

    This is why a circumcised penis is also something of a status symbol in the USA: often the mutilation must be paid for privately.
