A Comparison of Intact and Circumcised Penises
The following images are for the benefit of US women and others who have never seen an intact penis erect. (Because they were made for erotic purposes, they show penises that are rather bigger than average.)
An intact penis does not have to be erect for the foreskin to retract and stay retracted:
On erection, the foreskin does not always retract completely by itself. It can usually (but not always) be passively retracted the rest of the way.
It is commonly said that circumcised and intact penises look just the same when erect.
Even without that clue, there are several visible differences:
Circumcision disrupts the outer blood vessels of the shaft:
- and inevitably removes all the veins of the foreskin itself:
Thanks to VD in Paris who has sent these four pictures of his intact penis "average in both size and shape" for comparison. (Click on each thumbnail to see an enlargement.)
