Slicing the Top Off

When people discuss circumcision it very quickly degenerates into an argument about bodily mutilation. Which is a pity:

There are definitely health benefits but are these outweighed by the loss of sensitivity, and thus the loss of sexual pleasure?

There's actually a very good argument that the loss of sensitivity itself leads to greater pleasure, not lower.

So, err, that argument against circumcision thus fails, don't you think?
