Are circumcised boys easier to keep clean?

“A lot of people think it’s easier to keep a circumcised penis clean, but it’s actually not. With a circumcised penis, you have a post-surgical circumcision wound in a dirty diaper. You have to worry about keeping that clean, pulling the remaining foreskin back so it won’t readhere, applying vaseline so the raw skin won’t stick to the diaper, watching for infection, watching for adhesions and skin bridges, meatal stenosis…. the list goes on. You don’t have to do any of that with an intact baby. You just wipe and you’re done! No need to pull anything back. Parents who have both intact and circumcised sons in the home report that intact boys are hands down the easier of the two to keep clean.”
