A 34-year-old member asked:

what do you suggest to regain sensation in my penis after circumcision?

See below: You should not have lost sensation. The foreskin only covers and the glans of the penis and it should still be sensitive. If problems, see your doc.

A 44-year-old member asked:

I just saw my fiance's penis and it looks like he's half-circumcised. Is that commonly done?

Rarely: It is not very common but there are patients who request a partial circumcision to preserve as much foreskin as possible when surgery is needed for phimosis (scarring of the foreskin). However, the most common reason for this is a poorly performed circumcision where excess foreskin is inadvertantly left behind. This is not of any clinical consequence and is only a cosmetic issue.

No: It's still the same old penis you've grown to know and love, only it's now a convertible with the top down. It'll still give you years of valuable and quality service if you take care of it properly -- don't forget to rotate the tires.
