Well, until I fell in love with an Indian guy who worked in my office.I didn't notice the difference at first -- unless you're really looking, it's difficult to discern an intact penis from a circumcised one when the penis is erect.It wasn't until the post-coital moments of relaxation and intimacy that I saw what was going on down there. As someone who took many -- probably too many -- Women's Studies classes in college, I'm keenly aware of society's unrealistic definition of what's sexy, especially when it comes to women's bodies.After our first date, I learned he was born in England and moved around a lot as a child.

I swear it’s not that bad.” Me: Googling uncircumcised penis… Things got hot and heavy fast (OK, so we weren’t taking it THAT slow). Me: I’m sure I looked like a deer in headlights – stunned as I saw my first uncircumcised penis in real life. I just have never seen an uncircumcised penis before, and I need to take this all in.” Him: “Seriously? It’s just if you’re not used to it, it can be a bit scary.
