My boyfriend is uncircumcised, is that bad?
Not at all! Circumcision — the removal of the foreskin on the penis — is generally done shortly after birth. About 60 percent of boys in the U.S. are circumcised at birth, which means that 40 percent are uncircumcised. So both circumcised and uncircumcised penises are common in the U.S. It’s also worth mentioning that in many countries outside of the U.S, it’s much more common to be uncircumcised. Circumcised and uncircumcised penises both work the same way; they just look a little different. Click here for more info about how different penises can look.
