Male Circumcision and Sexual Function in Men and Women: a Survey-Based, Cross-Sectional Study in Denmark

Morten Frisch

One third of the world's men are circumcised, but little is known about possible sexual consequences of male circumcision. In Denmark (~5% circumcised), we examined associations of circumcision with a range of sexual measures in both sexes. Participants in a national health survey in 2005 (n=5552) provided information about their own (men) or their spouse's (women) circumcision status and details about their sexual lives. Logistic regression-derived odds ratios adjusted for potential confounders (ORadj) measured associations of circumcision status with sexual experiences and current difficulties with sexual desire, sexual needs fulfilment, and sexual functioning.
