A large-scale internet survey, with over 5,005 participants, found that the majority of participants were satisfied with their circumcision status, whether circumcised or not.
Another internet survey of over 3,100 males confirmed this result. In this survey, interestingly, the degree of satisfaction varied according to sexual orientation. Homosexual and bisexual males were less satisfied with their circumcision than heterosexuals.
In a formal study of 73 males, uncircumcised males were less satisfied overall than the circumcised participants.
