As a circumcised male I can tell you that you are right about the maintenance issue and I agree with you about the appearance as well. I guess it is a personal thing but I have never had a problem with it.

I was about 16 the first time I saw a baby boy who was not circumcised. At that age I didn't know what circumcision was, I thought there was something wrong with him and felt really sorry for him. I mentioned it to my mom who told me that was how all baby boys looked when they were born and a medical procedure was done to remove the extra skin.

I disagree.

OK then perhaps refrain from boring us and post your disagreement where it belongs which is not here.

Awesome. I wholeheartedly agree. I was circumcised, and it's cleaner looking, and I haven't had any problems with a loss of feeling during sex.

There is a significant move to "not" circumcise, and leave foreskin in place. It's not difficult to slide the foreskin back to clean, and it is great feeling during sex.

Ahem - If you read the experience carefully it says I support male circumcision - you do not seem to belong here which begs the question why post at all when your opinion does not belong here?

I agree what you have done to your boys. Better still when they become teens, get them to have what is a high and tight circ.. That is the skin along the shaft is cut right back, right to the scrotum.. Not only looks great, and of course is quite easy to clean, but so sexy to every man I know who has it done. Make ************ different , impossible for some, which many like.

Conpletely agree with you Aprilm32 !! I'm clipped and I think it is the best way to go.

I AGREE ...WAY TO GO mom.. YOU ROCK ... IT WILL BENEFIT THEM ALL OF THEIR LIVES

I have just looked up the female mutilation (ain't the internet a wonderful tool to help dispel ignorance).
Nowhere could I find a valid reason for the actual practice ?.
I can sort of understand with a male, if the doctor says he may have some sort of trouble peeling the skin back to go for a leak or something ?,, (but not because some 'mother' is too squimish to pull back the skin and clean it herself, that is a pathetic excuse for lazy parenting), But,, that female version is nothing short of sadistic brutality.
What those poor woman and girls go through is beyond my understanding :(
My heart bleeds for them.

Some Muslims wrongly believe that cutting off some of the female fiddly bits is pleasing to God.

Many African tribes justify the FGM they practice using language quite similar to what American parents say when justifying the circumcisions they impose on their newborn sons. They deny all sadistic intention, and firmly believe that FGM makes a woman more pleasing to men.
BTW, FGM is generally performed by adult women, who do it to girls who can be as old as 16.

I remember being about 15-16 and not even knowing anything about circumcision. I saw a young boy who was uncircumcised and thought there was something wrong and felt sorry for him. I asked my mom about it and she explained what it was.

I had a similar conversation with my teenage daughter.

Ps,,,, I had mine done solely for religious reasons. That is partly why I now reject those tenents.

Do 'They' remove the whole clitoris when they do the female circumcision ?. It was my belief that they only removed the hood of skin covering it ?. If I am wrong in that assumption I will gladly apologise to all those mutilated females that have been through that horrendous ordeal.
I am so glad they left me with the head of my penis at least. Gee,, thank's for that ;)

There never has been a study that asked a random sample of 10,000 African and Muslim women to slip out of their knickers and put their feet in gyno stirrups, so that their vulvas could be carefully examined for evidence of surgical modification. Hence we do not know what FGM entails in practice.
Hanny Lightfoot-Klein and others have written that the details of FGM vary. Sometimes the clitoris is multilated. Sometimes just the hood is trimmed. Sometimes FGM mainly attacks just the labia minora. Infibulation, fortunately, is rare.

it was explained to me that they do it to women to stop them from enjoying sex...complete mutilation and removal of the **** ..so very sic :(

You cut off part of your baby's body because it "looks" better and you can't be bothered to clean it? Don't have more children please.

I fully agree with you regarding circumcising my sons.

Australia is a country that traditionally circumcised its male babies, I was born in the UK and was not, my stepson was circumcised 3 times unsuccessfully before my now wife told them to stop, her ex was, and his son was going to be, I have 3 biological sons none of whom have been or have suffered any problems, hygiene was taught from an early age. I have never had a woman complain that my penis smelt off or did not taste good. I only eat red meat a couple of times a week, lots of fruit, chicken and fish and have been complimented on the taste of my *********.
There are a lot of "old wives tales" and superstitions regarding male genital mutilation and it is a very emotive subject for some.

The British middle and upper classes often circumcised their baby boys, 1870-1950. The NHS announced in 1950 that they would not pay for it, and the practice soon died out. When it comes to the tip of the penis, the British have shown a curious good sense.
New Zealand defunded the practice in 1969, and it gradually died out there. Canadian provinces gradually defunded the practice between 1975 and 2004, but the rate remains as high as 30%. It is mostly done in the surgeries of doctors who specialise in cutting babies. Australia has not totally defunded the practice, but the rate has fallen to 15%. Ireland never circumcised routinely.

The problem is the United States of America, that Empire of the Bald Penis, where millions of parents cannot accept What Nature Intended. Where nearly all doctors are either circumcised males or married to such. Hence American doctors suffer from crippled common sense. Their minds are closed to the possibility that the foreskin is sexually valuable. American medical schools refuse to teach the truth about the most sexual part of the male body, clutching at "research" that fails a common sense test, namely that if the natural penis is unhealthy in a world where men shower daily and can buy condoms in any supermarket, than European and Japanese data would clearly reveal this fact. I have yet to encounter a study showing that Europe and Japan have higher rates of this or that urological problem. They have lower rates of STDs than the USA. American doctors also have never questioned women who have been intimate with both kinds of men.

There are other American mothers who regret having had 1 or more sons cut in the past. There are men who hate the fact that their mothers had them cut at birth. The only way forward here is to let every man decide the fate of his foreskin, after he turns 18.

Have you done your own foreskin over your own clitoris ?. Why not ??

Many Muslims and African tribes agree with you ;)
AprilM32 may believe that the urethra turns a clean sexy organ (the clitoris) into a dirty and repugnant organ (the natural penis). I have read that there are women with hygiene problems under the clitoral foreskin, because most mothers are much too prudish to talk to their daughters about clitoral hygiene. I suspect that a powerful but unspoken reason behind surgical alteration of the genitalia, is parents who are too embarrassed to talk about the fiddly bits both genders happen to have. Circumcision is grounded in shame.

i agree with you.i am and glad of it.

you cut half your sons dicks off? for your own benefit? ouch.

Many years ago when our son was born the doctor brought up the subject if we wanted to have it done or not. My husband without hesitation or even asking me immediately answered said something like " yes, of course we want it done."

yes , circumcised ***** are clean and higeonic and it is smell very fresh. its taste really good .

Fine. Welcome to cruising Moslem and Jewish men. But your preference should not decide the fate of the penis of an American newborn. The baby will one day become a man, and that man may have opinions about sex and genitalia that differ from yours.

well its a little too late for him I guess...I am the parent RIGHT NOW!!!!!!

But he will turn 18 one day, and have a mind that is fully his own. That fact should be respected from the moment of birth.

Parents have many responsibilities, rights and obligations. They make MANY choices when raising children. What values to teach them, which schools they will attend, respect and discipline - among the many minor decisions is circumcision. I agree totally with you on the subject - Mothers get to decide what penis style they prefer their Son's to have and if they choose to have to deal with the maintenance issues or not and what their future sexual partners will have to put up with. When a parent pays the bills to bring up a child they get certain rights along with those obligations and circumcision is but one of them. No One - no one at all - gets to tell you differently or has the right to question or criticize your choices. Opinions are like rear ends - everyone has one. I was circumcised by the choice of my parents, I respect their choice for me, know it was done out of love and caring and I suffer no functional impediment what so ever for the loving choice that was made for me. I have pity for those men and boys who were not so loved. No Woman - not one - will reject a man only for the reason that he has no foreskin. There are Women who will refuse a man who still retains one. Circumcision thus widens a man's future sexual prospects and does NOTHING to limit them.

I've never had my sexual prospects limited by having a foreskin. Would you turn a woman down because of the size and prominence of her labia?

There are women for whom the mere idea of a foreskin would make them RETCH.

Well I've seen one or two on dating sites state a preference but never been turned down in real life. In fact the American girls I've been with rather enjoyed the novelty value and one was positively obsessed!

If you say so then you are perhaps fortunate but you are writing on an experience where the Mother of two boys DECIDED to circumcise them based upon HER experience and HER preference and who exercised her RIGHTS as the parents of those boys to CIRCUMCISE them for good and valid reasons. You can rail against her rights and obligations as a Parent but it is SHE who is raising those boys from infants to men and it is SHE who gets to decide these things among many other decisions FOR these boys - no not to these boys. What you will never know is that a circumcised penis works perfectly fine thanks very much - it delivers great pleasure to the owner. You like your foreskin - which is fine. I have a very close friend who was circumcised as an adult and he and his Wife both say that circumcised is better and they both lived with his penis both ways. You like me have no means of comparison so I depend such information. for the comparative while knowing as a user and owner of a circumcised penis that mine works perfectly well - and it gets a hugely disproportionate amount of sexual use in our marriage - my Wife prefers that we have sex each day so that is exactly what we do. At well into my fifties it works very well for the purpose with zero levels of problems - never one issue of ED, no problems delivering or receiving pleasure, it is visually appealing to my Wife at all times and in all states and it is always perfectly clean with no maintenance required what so ever. In summary there is nothing wrong with it and a whole lot right about it - and most importantly my Wife as the principle consumer - likes it - a LOT, frequently and regularly.

Good for you. Mine functions perfectly well, gives me endless pleasure for free and has been loved by many women who love having sex multiple times a day. I'm not saying circumcision is right or wrong I'm just share my personal experience. What I don't understand is why everyone in group tells me that I'm lying and I'm wrong about my own experience. As you say I can't compare being circumcised because I've never experienced it so how can someone else tell me that I'm wrong about something I have experienced that they have no experience of? I just object to being told that I must be lying by people who know nothing about me.

No one said you are lying - I sure did not - but I will say you have no business here - what so ever. You have no business criticizing a decision that a Mother made based upon her own experiences and her own preferences - in any form. And while your penis works well for you - so do penises that have been circumcised. So you have your backyard to play in and we have ours - and we can stay out of yours with our preferences and you can please stay the heck out of ours with yours.

You have no business here and you will make no friends and gain no followers here.

This is an open forum and I'm merely sharing my experience of a related subject. If you want a forum to share your love of a particular experience without hearing any opposing view points do it on a closed forum. I've posted plenty of things here in groups that I know won't people won't agree with but I'm happy to hear the opinions and experiences as that's part of the joy of the freedom of speech.

This experience is called I support circumcision - please learn to read or do we need to send you back to grade one? You do NOT support circumcision and YOU do NOT belong here. This is not a debating society and you take your freedoms and express them where you belong. You are not properly part of this experience and you have nothing of value to add to it. Honestly how would you feel if I was to flame "I adore and cherish my foreskin" with it is the most foul filthy disgusting stinking disease infested bacteria harbouring piece of crap on the face of the planet and no self respecting woman would EVER willingly want anything to do with such a vile disgusting man who disrespects women by presenting their ****** coated schlong to them and actually expects women to enjoy it? How would you feel if I said that all men who still have foreskins should be mortally ashamed at having them and should be marginalized and shamed into running to a doctor to have this stinking piece of meat removed from their penis and join civilized society? Look you are boring and your views are not in the least appreciated here - I really could not be more plain if I tried to be.

I'd say you were welcome to that opinion but I don't sgree with it. It's called being a courteous grown up.

And my comments have hardly been on a par with that kind of abuse.

I was just giving examples of abuse - you have not been abused - except by perhaps your parents. Now go play where you are wanted and where you belong - because it is not here.....

Oh and your parents disrespected women enough to let you out of the nursery with skin hanging over the end of your penis. Does this not make you feel less than welcome here? I sure hope it does.

No can't say that bothers me. My father is circumcised and clearly had his reasons to leave me au naturel. I'm off on holiday so enjoy your weekend.

Oh and it doesn't hang it just sits neatly allowing a glimpse of what lies beneath.

Higeonic? Sounds like some kind of scientific freezing process!

Don't recall ever washing under my foreskin until I was a teenager and never had a problem. I usually only get any kind of deposit when dehydrated as then it's not damp enough down there to be self-cleaning.

it must smell and feel wonderful for women going down on you...

I was thinking the exact same thing. What self respecting woman would look forward to having any thing to do with such a \"fine\" piece of male anatomy? I can see she would really look forward to him stuffing his smelly salami into her mouth or elsewhere - and a hand job? The only hand job he would get is self inflicted. The very thought is revolting.

Self cleaning - with what stale urine? Give me a blessed break - this guy is a poster child for the reasons for circumcision.

\"No washing until I was a teenager\"...that doesn\'t make much sense unless he lived by himself in the middle of the woods. Irritation would have been such (and adherences, probably) that any school nurse or pediatrician would have sent him straight to the the circumcision unit. In my view, that\'s another one of the intactivist flamers...or a real, real pig!

Ha - too funny - and he says it does not smell badly.... either he better get his nose checked out or it is a long distance from it to the end of his penis. This guy sounds totally disgusting.

Honestly never had a problem. Used to pull it back playing with it but never had any irritation or adherences. These days give it a good rinse every day and a extra good clean if I expect anyone else will be going near it. You do know urine is sterile?

So nobody goes down on you, between your love of ****** and your enjoyment of urine...good luck

Plenty of people go down on me as there is no ******. Here in the UK it\'s more common to be uncircumcised and contrary to what it seems the US medical establishment tells you the place isn\'t full of men with exploding infected foreskins. A foreskin is a natural thing that has evolved. If it was responsible for causing health problems we would have evolved further an no longer have one. How do you think the founding fathers survived only washing once a week if that with no medical services?

At the time circumcision was quite common around the Puritan community due to the requirement of circumcision to follow the Biblical text. Furthermore, if you\'re supposedly British, how come you talk about \"founding fathers\"? In WW II British birds chose \"Yanks\" any time over the local boys because they \"didn\'t smell\" (read interviews from that time). As for evolution, the \"normal\" evolution of foreskin would be to shrink gradually and be nonexistent at adult age. The only biological function anyone ever found for it was to be a protective sheath for the glans. Which, with modern clothes, is of course...useless.

I\'m a well travelled Brit and I know that some Americans don\'t understand some English terms so hence every now and then I use Americanisms to save having to explain myself. Personally I enjoy the protective element as my glans is so sensitive that even cotton clothing rubbing against it is uncomfortable. Love that I\'m being lectured on cleanliness by a girl who tells the world how he helped his girlfriend **** in his sink. Did you fully disinfect it after that or just give it a rinse and do the washing up?

What does this have to do with anything? You\'ve never peed in a sink in your life? Never washed anything? You clean the sink as little as you cleaned your willy as a teen? You\'re supposedly a Brit but your style and vocabulary is totally North American, and obviously your poor uncut **** has an overly sensitive glans...this is one of the many reasons women prefer circumcised partners, not only are they cleaner, but they\'re less often hair-triggers when it comes to sex. Not to mention how unpleasant it is for the male to have an irritated glans every night as it rubs on sheets or when you get a good *******.

What you do in this group is very unclear. This is clearly identified as a group where the basis for all is that we support male circumcision. Unless you can\'t read it seems plain and clear. So if your position is that foreskins are wonderful and smell to high heaven like Chanel No 5, pass this group, please, and go to \"We love foreskins\".

Promise I was born in a tiny village in the county of Sussex went to school in Hampshire and university in Northumberland and now live in London. I\'m a lawyer so have been taught to adapt my writing style to my audience which on here is predominantly American. I\'ve peed in all manner of places and always clean up unless it\'s outdoors. I have no problem rubbing against sheets or enjoying a good ******* and many women love the sensitivity and my response to the slightest touch. Let\'s just say old chap that I\'m quite happy the way I am and you\'re clearly happy the way you are so we can agree to disagree.

Yep, and you can stop pestering people in this group with something they fundamentally disagree with. Happy trails, \"old chap\".

Your personal hygiene sounds revolting and disgusting to me. I would not want to shake the hand of a man who had such a vile thing in it previously.

Just always amazes me that people get so excited about a piece of skin that the medical community is undecided about. Anyway shall leave you in peace and remove my child\'s finger nails so they don\'t get dirt and infection under their nails!

Sir, welcome to the USA, a land where the foreskin can be the object of a weird and intense bigotry!
Hygiene? A woman has the right to ask that you freshen up in the bath before her going down on you. This is very easy.
The only medical community that waffles on and on about the foreskin and its removal, is the American one. Other advanced countries have settled on respecting what Nature Intended.
Psst! It's not a piece of skin, but the most intensely sexual part of the male body. This is especially true after age 40-50. And a few British women have revealed in social media that the penis does not look right to them without its movable long sleeve. Some American women have revealed in detail how intact makes a man more sensitive, and how it feels better inside a woman.

So please tell us how you support male circumcision - the name of this experience when you plainly know NOTHING about it. Why are you posting your smelly stinky stuff here?

Just make sure whose mouth, hands, vagina and *** your kids jam their dirty stinking unwashed fingers into ok? Now go play at an experience you actually share instead of here.

YUK!

\"...circumcision was quite common around the Puritan community due to the requirement of following the Biblical text.\"
There is Zero evidence of any American gentiles being circumcised before 1870 or so.

\"In WW II British birds chose \"Yanks\" any time over the local boys because they \"didn\'t smell\" (read interviews from that time).\"
They chose Yanks because the UK was filled with American and Canadian GIs waiting for D Day. The Yanks could buy things at the PX that were unavailable in British shops. In the early 1940s, many American GIs were not circumcised, because born to working class urban or farm families. RIC was far from universal in the USA around 1920, when the typical GI was born.

\"As for evolution, the \"normal\" evolution of foreskin would be to shrink gradually and be nonexistent at adult age.\"
What is normal is for the foreskin to become detached from the glans, and for the opening in the foreskin to become wider and looser. There is no biological reason for the foreskin to disappear. Some adult men have short foreskins; there is no evidence that this fact has a genetic basis or that it is being selected for.

\"The only biological function anyone ever found for it was to be a protective sheath for the glans.\"
The foreskin and frenulum have several sexual functions in their own right. These functions were passed over in silence by printed matter written last century. Americans could not comment on the sexual virtues of the foreskin, because they had no personal experience thereof. Continental Europeans did not comment thereon, because the foreskin was taken for granted. How we humans think about sex is very much socially constructed. Hence sexual knowledge varies by place, and evolves over time. We humans are always striving to learn.

\"Which, with modern clothes, is of course...useless.\"
The foreskin protects the most sexual parts of the penis from the dulling effect of decades of constant contact with underwear. I have read many testimonials bearing on this dulling.

I'm glad I was circumcised.

I also circumcised both of my boys. I did this for many reasons, cleanliness, cultural. But the main reason I did was my brother. My parents did not circumcise my brother, a choice than was and is just fine. But when he was 24 due to a medical condition. Paraphimosis is the inability to position the foreskin back over the head of the penis after it has been retracted; this is usually associated with phimosis and can be a surgical emergency since blood flow to the head of the penis can become impaired. Circumcision as an adult is much more painful and there is an increased risk of complications.
Though paraphimosis is not a common thing, after watching the way my brother suffered I knew I would never risk my boys ever having to go through that.
You made the right choice for you and your sons, dont let anyone tell you other wise.
If circumcision was not safe, the FDA would have banned it a long time ago

Foreskin problems will affect at least 25% of all uncut males at one point in time. Not even considering other good reasons to circumcise.

Cleaning under the foreskin is trivial, unless there is phimosis. Most cases of phimosis can be cured by applying steroid ointment to the tip of the foreskin, for 6-12 weeks. The remaining stubborn cases can be eliminated by a 1cm dorsal slit (easy), or by a urological surgery that completely preserves the foreskin (American doctors are not trained to perform this surgery). I live in a country that no longer circumcises, and know of only 1 circumcision performed on an adult because of mechanical difficulties.

There is no objective way to compare the pain of circumcision at different stages in the life cycle. What is true is that adult circumcision is performed under general anesthesia, and is followed by state of the art pain killers. Newborns get neither. Adult circumcision is easier to perform, and is less prone to complications, in all respects but one: sutures are required.

I am not as trusting of the FDA as you are. Also, the FDA would only be a mouthpiece for medical opinion. The fact driving the routine infant circumcision controversy is that medicine in the USA is not honest about the drawbacks thereof, drawbacks that have been noted in position statements of several foreign medical societies. There has never been a careful large sample study of the American adult penis, whose remit includes comparing the sexual and medical histories of cut and uncut men. The branch of the medical profession that is consulted when RIC goes wrong is pediatric urology. Only one USA pediatric urologist has seen fit to make public the fact that 25% of his caseload stems from post-RIC problems. The head of pediatric urology at a major USA teaching hospital confirmed this fact in a conversation with a friend of mine. But she won\'t say that in print.

I live in a country that does not circumcise. Medical practices in my city serve a catchment of about a half million. A telling fact is that there is only one urological practice. That fact is inconsistent with \"at least 25% of uncut males will eventually experience foreskin problems.\"

Consa - \"Most cases of phimosis can be cured by applying steroid ointment to the tip of the foreskin\" not most - some.

I\'d like to see your clinical evidence rather than internet/rumourmill/ motherhood/generalisations.

Can you please give me the journals & references for your assertions?

\"consa\" is an old intactivist living in the US. Just so you know.

Just a word about respectful comments here. Aprilm32 MADE the decision as a great many responsible Mothers do to circumcise her boys. This event in this case is a done deal so please do not levy any criticism here - it does no one any good at all. She mentions that she thinks it looks cleaner and we must respect her opinion - it however does more than look cleaner - it IS cleaner - at all and at every time than what the alternative is. There is no moist area for stale urine to reside under, for sloughed off skin cells or ***** to reside under. It is ALWAYS cleaner and always a lower maintenance alternative. It is a perfectly VALID choice for a Mother to make for her Son's and it is far from the most important decision and choice made in their upbringing. So the golden rule here is if you can say something nice say it and otherwise please keep it to yourself. Circumcision does not render men into being sexual cripples - circumcised men enjoy sex just fine thanks. There is nothing wrong with a circumcised penis and there is a whole lot right with one.

Hardly a balanced overview of the pros and cons though....

Please read the experience you are commenting on VERY carefully. It is called I support male circumcision. This is not a debating society. I do support male circumcision and I have nothing other than respect for the author and her decision to have the foreskins removed from her Sons as infants. There are other experience sites for those who love foreskins and let those who do so post to those sites in peace. Choosing to circumcise your sons is a VALID, choice that parents have made for thousands of years. It is a significant vote for cleanliness, low maintenance life, great care and consideration for their future sexual partners and there is nothing detrimental about it. I do not have to denigrate those who do not make this choice and we do not have to consider those who denigrate our choice. Those that say a parent has no right to cut the foreskin from their son's penis are wrong and missing the mark. The parent is responsible to raise those children to be responsible adults and circumcision is FAR from the most important choice or decision that is made for them - it is but one decision of a great many. Again we do not have to tolerate anyone denigrating this choice. It was made for me and I am truly appreciative of all the benefits I have derived from being circumcised. Sexually I have no complaints what so ever - Mothers clearly know this and can clearly make educated and experienced choices for their Sons.

Oh and I blocked Horny Dirty Guy - because not only does he not share this experience but he has Nazi sympathies as well.

I am circumcised, and I am glad to be. My wife commented on it after our wedding night she was so glad I was circumcised. She likes the way my **** looks, and when it is soft, the head of it is still visible.

Interesting. We have friends - neither he nor his son were circumcised. His Wife confided in mine saying she really would have preferred that her husband (and Son) be circumcised - her Husband would not hear of it for either himself or his son - half Dutch have German 100% stubborn. She has put up with it - but she knows what she prefers and she knows why.

Don't you think perhaps the boys themselves might like to be consulted on whether or not to chop off bits of their anatomies...?

It ought to be an unlawful assault to perform a circumcision.

A German court recently ruled that in fact that was the case.

German lawmakers exempted all religious circumcision from compliance with this very recent change in German Law. I would like to point out that we do not live in Germany. The law here clearly permits circumcision and it does not interfere in a parents legal right to make decisions for their minor children. This is not unlawful assault and please do not be so melodramatic about the bits that are "chopped off" - they are not chopped off - they are surgically removed and those of us who properly belong on this experience will tell you clearly that circumcision is an enhancement and it does not render the boy at a sexual disadvantage or make him a sexual invalid. There is NOTHING WRONG in CIRCUMCISING a son's penis. It is a kindness, it takes nothing away from sexual performance. The pleasure centre of a penis is the glans not the foreskin that used to cover it. Please do not denigrate those who prefer their son's to be circumcised there is nothing wrong with the procedure. We are not ridiculing you and if you do not share the view of the author there are perhaps more appropriate forums for you to express your point of view.

\"...circumcision is an enhancement...\"
A matter of opinion.

\"...and it does not render the boy at a sexual disadvantage or make him a sexual invalid.\"
I have read a number of testimonials to the contrary, written by men circumcised at birth (and sometimes later in life).

\"There is NOTHING WRONG in CIRCUMCISING a son\'s penis.\"
It is wrong to have the fate of the most sexual part of the male body, the end of the penis, to be decided by a man\'s parents rather than by the man himself.

\"It is a kindness...\"
A matter of opinion. What is emphatically unkind is that Jewish bris, and American RIC, are usually performed without any effective pain relief.

\"...it takes nothing away from sexual performance.\"
Nothing in the medical or sexual literatures clearly confirms or overturns this, and this is a major intellectual scandal. Over the past 130 odd years, >100 million American and Canadian baby boys have been circumcised at birth. There never has been a study of the adult consequences thereof.

\"The pleasure centre of a penis is the glans not the foreskin that used to cover it.\"
I am intact, and can assure you that you are mistaken here.

\"Please do not denigrate those who prefer their son\'s to be circumcised...\"
I blame USA medical schools, not the parents who give the nod, because of a tragically misplaced trust in the USA medical profession.

\"...there is nothing wrong with the procedure.\"
Again, there is no research bearing this out.

\"We are not ridiculing you...\"
Bigotry directed at the foreskin and at men who remain in their natural state is a hard fact of life hither and yon, in social media in which Americans post and comment.

I do not believe in outlawing routine or ritual circumcision. Just as I do not believe in outlawing alcohol or recreational drugs. But I predict that over the next 30-50 years, RIC in the USA will come to be perceived as cruel to the baby, as denying an open future to the man he will grow up to be, as grounded in patronising misandrist assumptions, and as capable of damaging the sexual experiences of both genders. America will stop RIC, because RIC will be seen as uncool, especially by the mothers of the future.

I don\'t know how that smelly **** consa reads my stuff when I blocked him but he feels compelled to post where he is not wanted and where he plainly does not belong.

A matter of opinion - is one shared by all members of this experience site - if you don\'t agree - then simply refrain from coming here - this is not a debating society - it is an experience site and one which you do not share and which you should not be in.

A your reading list - I have read the exact opposite - now go away mr. smelly ****

Parents make many valid decisions for their minor children - circumcision is but one and one that a Mother is well qualified as an informed user and consumer to make for her Son. Get over it - women have decided to circumcise their Son\'s for thousands of years. The fact that your own Mother did not have the good sense or consideration to do this for you is her failing.

Many RIC and Bris\'s have pain control - big deal - many boys sleep right through it. And even when I have seen them yell their freaking heads off - well it is over in a flash and no man I ever met recalled the \"barbarity\" of circumcision. I was circumcised as an infant - and I and my Wife LOVE my always cleaner **** thanks - and we give it a lot of exercise - and it works just fine thanks for your deep concern over it - I must be doing something right because the Mrs. is up for it every morning and I am 56 years old - no problems, no dulling - we really enjoy sex a lot. As to the contrast - I go to a friend and his wife where he was circumcised at age 36 - they both like it and they lived with it before and afterwards. So stop being so melodramatic and go where you are wanted - which is not here. He also confirms Mr. Intact that a foreskin is not the pleasure centre of the universe - the glans is. What a load of crap you spout.

If you feel inadequate with your foreskin - and there are women who expect it not to be there - including my teenage Daughters who have been well schooled by their Mother, Grandmother\'s and a Great Grandmother - we can find you a doctor to fix that little problem for you and the sooner the better.

Yah you keep predicting. Moslems are 25% of the population of the earth and they are reproducing at incredible rates. Oh and they circumcise their boys. RIC is far cheaper than life time health care costs of maintaining a foreskin. Many Mother\'s prefer it - and so it will continue.

Now go away to I love my Foreskin consa together with your smelly ****.

how would like something of that natural done to you & you wasn;t even asked of u wanted it done ?? humm thats the sad part about it :( it really is :( & shame on you :( i;am a 63 yr; old guy & have neverrrr everr had the frist problems with it in my life :( & now even the doc. are not pushing it as much as then use too :( your 2 boys have now lost a lot of good nerves in there penis :( that there never ever get to feel in there lives :(

hi my boys are not circumcised and I unerstand what bannaman and tbrguy are saying but please DON'T beat this mom up she it doing what is the norm for our society as this time. Hopefully in the future circumcision will be less of an auto practice and can be done if the boy wants it done later in life. The only thing it is a much bigger surgery as an adult.

To alter the genitalia of human being merely so that the appearance of the genitalia conform to a social expectation, is deeply deplorable.

When the body clashes with attitudes about the body, reexamine the attitudes. Women should NEVER have cosmetic surgery done to their vulvas. No woman should ever feel compelled to remove her pubic hair simply to please the men she dates. Likewise, no man should ever have his foreskin removed simply because the women he will date might freak out when they discover that his short arm has a long sleeve. The correct response to such freaking out is education about normal sexual anatomy, not surgery driven by craven conformity.

You were wise I believe. Hygiene is simpler and more efficient and disease is less likely

While I think its the "low maintenance" option, a physical trait says nothing about what's inside the package....
