“A circumcised penis is a more practical penis,” says one foreskin-less man. But is that really true?
In their most recent video, Simple Pickup pit those in favor of circumcision against champions of the uncut. The pro-circumcision camp argues that it's an issue of cleanliness and that the cut specimen is just more aesthetically pleasing. Putting it bluntly, one dude says, "What would you prefer to look at, an anteater or a really nice mushroom tip?”
But then the critiques on the surgery come in with excellent rebuttals. For instance, they remind their opponents that 75% of men worldwide are uncircumcised, that the natural penis is meant to properly please the woman, and that the foreskin contains 10,000-20,000 nerve endings that you're chopping right off.
Watch the video, and perhaps reconsider your stance.
