Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

How come female genital mutilation(FGM) isn't okay but male genital mutilation is?

FGM is practiced in other countries, its horrific! Just because we circumcise in hospitals or doctors office doesn't make it less horrific or brutal.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

Because of this thread my DH has reshearched how to recover his lost forskin. He has now about 3/4 of an inch of moveable skin.

Things are so much better now. THANKYOU for this thread. No more rubbing and pulling during our time together.

Thank you for this information!! I am still working on the DH to convince him. Men are so difficult sometimes.

That is awesome! So cool for you both! Is he going to go for full coverage, or just comfort? I want my dh to do it, but his circ was sort of loose to begin with so he doesn't have any impetus to do it. I wish he would, though.

Your post warmed the cockles of my heart.

He is going for full coverage, hopefully. He has an aparatus to wear and is also doing the excerisies. All because I mentioned that I had heard of someone correcting theirs. So he took it upon himself to look into it the very next day. Have I mentioned he is awesome!

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

I've seen men restoring their foreskin - but they'll never get that super sensitive nerve dense skin back that they lost, so what benefits does the restoration have for the man?

Well, a happy wife is a huge benefit for my DH. But, also once the scar tissue abates then he will gain more feeling on the glandis. Even if he can never get back what was taken from him he can restore quite a bit of sensation, last longer, and give a smoother expierence for his partner (me).

So far it has made a world of difference for us.
