Our son will be born at a birth center so he won't be circumscised there, we will have to take him to a doctor, and our ped does not do it either. So knowing that he will have to find someone to do it, schedule it and take him all by himself should be enough to change his mind, but if not, hopefully this will. Especially the part about the foreskin being the most sensitive part of the penis. As much as men love sex, you would think that all of the circ'd men would be pissed that they are missing out.
Actually, it is such a painful thought, that their brains will shift into denial and they will only get more forceful about circumcision making sex better.

Second, many husbands will go to such lengths, so you are better off just telling him no, period.

I agree, the photos are bad enough...the videos are even more eye opening. I think it should be MANDATORY for people to watch this before they make the choice to slice their sons penises apart.

I am so glad that I opened my mind just a tad and clicked on a link about circ. My mind was forever changed and so is my DH's thanks to this site and this info. If my DD had been a boy, she would have been circ'd because she was born before I learned better. That thought makes me sick. So thank you OP and all you intactivist mamas. If 100 insecure circ'ing moms get mad about the facts and refuse to open their minds but 1 mom decides against it, it's totally worth it.
I agree. I have seen people say that there is no point in debating things b/c no one changes their mind anyways. That is so not true- I know b/c I circd my eldest and changed my mind thanks the threads like this throughout the years. My younger two sons are intact

I totally agree, I think it should be required that every single parent who takes their child to be circ'd should have to watch a full length circ video with volume.

I friended the whole network on facebook and they just posted this link which of course made me think of this thread

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

Thanks for this info. My DS isnt circ'd! I was against it, and hubby was for it. I basically told DH that if he wanted it done he had to do everything from making the appointment to caring for it. Knowing that DH can have his lazy streak, I was banking on this to keep DS intact-it worked! I especially like the biblical reference. MIL is a pastor, so, for biblical reasons, DH tried to advocate for circ. I felt this was the old testament, but dont have as much biblical education as DH so really couldnt dispute it-now I have a reference :-)
