Cut or Intact – Guys, How Do You Like Your Men?

A well-known author who would like to remain anonymous emailed me a few days ago on this very sensitive topic. Do gay men prefer their partners to be cut or do they like an intact foreskin? This question has nothing whatsoever to do with religion or hygiene – it’s strictly sensory, aesthetic and to a lesser degree, olfactory.

So, in my usual very inhibited and introverted way I thought I would do a poll on this topic because it would be helpful not only to my author friend but other female M/M and gay erotica writers as well. As an aside, it would be useful for me to have this information too as I embark on my much anticipated writing career *g*.

We know that Bobby Michaels advocates the intact penis because in a number of his books, especially the Jock Dorm and Veterans series he is really into the visual and sensory aspects of sex; he also loves ‘manly men’ who are downright sweaty and I don’t believe he likes anything that would mask a man’s natural smell. However, Bobby notwithstanding, what do you guys prefer? Do you like the movement of the foreskin on the intact penis as it glides back and forth, thus adding another dimension to sexual stimulation? Some people compare this to playing hide and seek 🙂 Or do you prefer the friction of the ‘cut’ penis? Please note that I’m using clinical terms because I would like to keep the discussion elevated as much as I can but you can use whatever terminology you find comfortable.

As a subset to your response could you please indicate the reason for your preference? For example, is it because with an intact penis the pleasure is extended or is it because, if your partner is cut, his sensation is heightened? For some of you it does not matter either way and that’s cool but I would like you to tell us why, if you don’t mind. Not being a guy (I swear I’m not) I have no idea of the different factors that would go into this consideration but I understand that for some guys this preference is really huge.

While it seems that most women prefer their men to have benefited from the surgeon’s knife *ouch* according to a few informal surveys, there doesn’t appear to be any empirical data about the preferences of gay men. When I asked my gay friends for information about this they said that since they have no interest in dating me they weren’t going to give it up for free. I really thought they liked me! So guys – which do you prefer? The mushroom or the anteater? (I didn’t come up with these terms – my friends did.) By responding to this short poll you’ll be doing a great service to a lot of M/M and gay erotica authors and yours truly, of course.

Thanks in advance for what I hope will be some spirited comments and discussions on the blog. I hope some of our M/M authors will enter the fray as well. There will be a prize by said famous author for the best comment. Those of you who are on Livejournal and on my Flist will be able to view the comments here –

  • Ahaa, its fastidious conversation about this paragraph at this place at this website, I have
    read all that, so at this time me also commenting here.

  • Ιt’s truly a nice and helpful piece of information. I am glad that you shared this helpful info with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.

  • My step-father had me circumsized, but at this late age, I am using tape to stretch skin from the shaft. Fortunately, the surgeon left a lot of skin. It’s a slow process, but in time, I’ll look ‘natural’


  • I’m American and wasn’t circumcised at birth. I work in Korea, and when I came here and did the health check, the DR. told me to do it b/c most men in Korea are circumcised!

    So I did it. It was terrible pain for a week or so.

    It took about a month for things to go back to looking normal.

    Now, my— looks good–

    • Hi Rob

      Thanks for responding to this somewhat informal survey. 😀 I’m very glad that you love your new look and more power to you. 😎

  • Just stimbled onto this site from google search. I’m… still trying to figure myself out, in an orientation perspective. I’m also a virgin, so no experience.
    I’m circumsized, but I feel like I’d prefer an uncut cock. I don’t really know why. They’re just nicer to look at and look like more fun. Also, this may sound strange, but the past week I’ve been looking into foreskin restoration a lot to see if I should try it. The results look legit and I’m really tempted.

    • Mick, did you decide to restore? I grew up with my foreskin loose and retracted because my frenulun had been severed neonatally, so my foreskin wasn’t forced to grow as much as my shaft. I always had the idea that a foreskin allowed more pleasure, and I didn’t like the feel of clothes or hair against my most sensitive areas, so when I was 22 I found I could pull my foreskin to cover my whole glans, and started taping it at night and let nocturnal erections do the additional stretching. It didn’t take long until T could pass for uncut. I have always preferred uncut men and in my more promiscuous times noted that I often had three orgasms with intact men but only once did I have more than one a session with a cut man. Having read what women who have had both kinds of men, I realize more fully that we are capable of having silken sex rather than the jackhammer type that circumcised men have.


Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
