Re: What were your medical reasons for circumcising?
I can say for me leaving my son's intact wasn't a "choice". It was just normal.
Also for privacy, while I know for some it is weird to talk about sexual organs with one another, for others it's completely normal. Talking about issues like circumcision and intact care, etc is common amongst my family and friends.
ETA: I honestly don't think my boys will care that I've told people they are intact and then explain how to care for an intact penis. We don't view the penis, breasts, vulva/vagina, etc as any different than any other body part. And many of the boys amongst my friends who are now teenagers have talked about the dreaded locker room horrors that some parents claim are reasons they circ. We're just open about stuff like this, which is awesome, because it helps people make decisions and feel comfortable talking about these issues.
