A Personal Choice, Not A Parental One

Only if a man chooses it for himself, after his 18th or 21st birthday. Parents are not qualified to decide the fate of the foreskin.

I learned that not ALL Ancient Egyptians were circumcised. It was apparently
reserved for those of high social position or wealth

Shadowfax, once again your ignorance rears its ugly and ill informed head. When I was born the rate of routine infantile circumcision was around 95%. Fortunately for me my parents knew better. The latest reports in the medical journals are now saying the the rate of routine infantile circumcision is now at 35% or less. So, how in the hell is that an "increasing number"?

Early circumcision is part of what parents have to decide for the well-being of their male children. Luckily, an increasing number make that choice.

Then, why don't we leave the cord intact as well?

I didn't realize that. Sorry for putting my ignorance out there for all to see.

Yes, poor souls like you have to fight ****** - if not worse - day after day after day, not even considering the fact that the foreskin becomes thicker and increasingly wrinkled and unattractive with age. I wouldn't like to pull your pants down to suck you, man.

Shadowfax, the fact that I am straight not withstanding I would no more let you near my penis than I would a wood chipper.

I find this "******" fear so outlandish in this day and age. Men have grown highly aware of their bodies. Most spend a few hours at the gym
every week whilst others take exercise every day. I cannot believe that afterwards they don't shower and wash thoroughly afterwards. Men today use lotions, deodorants, creams and other toiletries.
The ****** Brigade concentrates solely on cleanliness under the foreskin. As long as a man is circumcised, then it doesn't matter that he doesn't pay full attention to his rear exit???) That would also apply to women.)
People are clean or they're not, and removing the foreskin may usually but not always assure you of cleanliness on the male genitals! I am sure there are many circumcised men, for example, who don't ritually wash their hands after visiting the urinal!
Let's be sane and sensible.
I say this in spite of circumcised being my own personal preferred status. (However unlike one atrociously-mannered redneck on one of these boards i don't insult those who don;t agree with my views and burst a blood vessel with rage!) )

Thank You Consa, my replies and comments above show my agreement with your satement of it being a personal choice for someone and not the choice of others that are not affected by the decision.

Parents make lots of decisions for their kids. Adult circumcision is not a complex operation, but it certainly provides less benefits than newborn circumcision, enabling the penis to grow naturally without a foreskin, with a large and nicely sensitive glans, no hygiene problems, no urinary trat infections, etc... It is a good decision by parents to make, and more and more make it as the full scope of advantages of early circumcision is made available by medical studies the world over.

I think a circumcised **** looks a lot cleaner and nicer, especially when at full staff.

It is Genital Mutilation of males. Something that being done to females is abhored by all civilized people.

Says you?

For most women the only difference resides in the fact that the erection is tighter in a circumcised male, which feels better, added to the hygienic advantage. But of course I gather that you're studying ***** every day...

It is an improvement, with proven advantages. I only wish it would be universal, it would save us from the crappy posts every uncut fanatic feels they have to post where they have nothing whatsoever to contribute.

Shadowfax, I am sorry to say but you are an extremely ignorant person living in the dark ages.

Was done as small infant so know no different,but its usually done for 2 reasons,religious or medical,i'm told mine was for medical reasons,well I'm not Jewish !

Too bad because there are really very few medical reasons for circumcision. Most of the reasons called "medical" really could be handled differently. Primary is Phimosis, a very tight foreskin. This is easily remedied with a doctor's prescription for a steroidal cream that is applied a couple times a day and cures the tightness.

steroidal creams are the treatment today but in the very early sixties circumcision was the treatment.
