(NaturalNews) A new study done in Belgium involving 1,369 men 18 and over, compared the sensitivity of the penis between those that were circumcised, and those that still had their foreskin intact.

Worldwide, it is estimated that only 30 percent of the male population is circumcised, but as many as 50 percent in the United States.

Besides comparing sensitivity, intensiveness of orgasm, and whether or not any numbness or pain was experienced while aroused were among the questions the Belgian men were asked to divulge the answers to.

A larger segment of the group, 1,059 in fact, were not circumcised, leaving only 310 of the men who were. The penis sensitivity scale ranged from zero to five, with five being on the higher end of sensitivity.

On average, in comparison to the circumcised segment of the group, the men who were not circumcised reported 0.2 to 0.4 higher in their sexual pleasure and sensitivity ranking. The sensitivity and arousal was in terms of stroking the glans (head of the penis) during arousal.

More intense orgasms were reported by the men with foreskin still intact, than those without.

"It's not a very big difference in sensitivity, but it's a significant difference," said Dr. Piet Hoebeke, the study's head researcher from Ghent University Hospital.

The choice to circumcise for some is because "it was recommended," for others it is for sanitary reasons, and yet others tie religious reasons to this ritual.

According to one of the largest circumcision resources in the world, the National Organization of Circumcision Information Resource Centers, the belief that masturbation caused disease was why circumcision began in the 1800s, and the thought was that circumcision would "prevent masturbation." Also mentioned is that the "foreskin is a normal, protective, functioning organ."

Another sensitivity study, the Penile Touch-Test Sensitivity Study reported that "intact men [those having foreskin, i.e. not circumcised] enjoy four times more penile sensitivity than circumcised men." This finding was published in the "Fine-touch Pressure Thresholds in the Adult Penis" article published on March 19, 2007 in the British Journal of Urology International.
