Putting a condom on a penis with a foreskin

The number was 83 percent in the US during the s, which means there are likely more circumcised men than uncircumcised men in the US. Circumcision, which the Mayo Clinic describes as a simple procedure, involves the surgical removal of the skin covering the tip of the penis — better known as the foreskin. While most circumcisions are performed just after birth, adults may decide to undergo the procedure later in life.
