Much like whether Louis Tomlinson of One Direction has a fake baby, male circumcision, or the surgical removal of part or all of the foreskin on the penis, remains a fraught topic. Despite the medical community's wide support of the practice—the CDC officially endorsed circumcision in —men, even those who are not explicitly intactivists , have mixed feelings about the act of cutting off part of their dick. Studies have shown, however, that circumcision comes with health benefits , including a lower risk of contracting some STIs, a lower risk of contracting UTIs during infancy that could cause kidney damage, and few health risks. In terms of sex and aesthetics, a survey conducted by Queen's University's Sex Lab found that women prefer circumcised penises for vaginal intercourse and fellatio. Still, men circumcised at birth often lament the fact that they never got to experience life with foreskin.
