(The following text or part of it is quoted from the free Wikipedia article Robert Van Howe:)

Van Howe's research includes a study published in 2007 in BJU International. The study reported that the five most sensitive points on the human penis were all in areas of it that are removed by circumcision[1] and that intact men's penises were four times more sensitive, on average, than were those of circumcised men. Critics of this study have noted that it was funded by the National Organization of Circumcision Information Resource Centers (NOCIRC), an anti-circumcision activist group. Van Howe maintains that this funding did not bias his study, telling ABC News, "The study was based on an objective finding" and "There's no way you can change what a person felt or didn't feel."[2]

Award for intactivism

Van Howe was chosen "Intactivist of the Month" by Intact America.
