Re: Serious Q about circumsizion..

I just watched the Pen & Teller YT vidoes. I've always been back and fourth. I once told my Mom I wouldnt circ if I ever had a boy and she looked at me with such disgust (it almost made me cry) and went on to say how dirty it was to leave boys/men intact. I had to get up and walk away. Ive talked to DH about it (he is circ) and he said he would want to. But, I think if I showed him all the research and the hard core FACTS (not any of that half-a**ed studies) he would agree that it is the wrong thing to do.

So, from here on out no more mind changing about this issue for me. I will not circ any boys we have.

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make it sound like you're "weird" (though to be perfectly honest I'm not exactly sure what you mean by that). I guess I miss read your post. I was just trying to clarify, nothing against you!

You just have to do what is right for you and yours, and don't look back.
I just had to at this. Not to offend... but you knew it was a painful procedure that was UNnecessary... and yet you did it anyway? I do not understand this mentality at all. Why on earth would anyone cut off a perfectly functioning part of their unconsenting childs body just because?

Your apendix does far less for you, you run the risk of needing it removed because of infection later in life and yet you'd be laughed at if anyone wanted to remove it from a healthy baby just because... and yet the foreskin, which has lots of "jobs" to do is routinely removed as a preventative meausre. *shakes head* Any part of your body can get infected without proper care. We don't chop other parts off willy nilly, I do not get why foreskin is different.

Re: Serious Q about circumsizion..

Back to the OP:

I have been with both. Sex is dependant on the man, not the foreskin or lack there of. That being said, I discussed circ with all of my partners, and none of them wanted their sons to be circed if that tells you anything about how they felt about it.

Penises that are clean smell better than those that are not. Just as you would teach your daughter to clean, you should teach your son to do so as well. FWIW, it's much harder to keep a vagina clean than an uncirc penis IME.

My son is the first male in my family to be left intact. It's not my body and I refused to put him through an unneccessary surgery. If FGM were avaliable for infants how many parents would be handing over their daughters for it... even "just" for the clitoral hood removal. Not many, I would bet. Why? Because it's unnecessary and will cause her pain, and interfere with her sexually (even if only marginally). So why the difference for male circ? I truly do not get it. It keeps the penis protected and self cleans, and provides a sexual function... why rob a little man of that just as he's entering the world?

Re: Serious Q about circumsizion..

Hi,


do they look the same as circ penis's when erect?

depends on the circ and the guy.


Does having sex with a circ man the same as a uncirc one?
have had good and bad both ways. being english most guys are not cut, and honestly girls back home prefer it if they are. SO, I was happy DH was :-)

Also, I have heard some people say they smell differently and alot of people dont like dealing with that, is this true?
Yes I find they do smell more, and without going to the TMI area, I would have a BF wash before a BJ, sorry but it's gross if they haven't washed all day.......


Also, if you know any uncirc men, do they regret not being circ and wish they were?
Some wish it was done others don't even think about it. I think we as mothers are thinking about it now more than most men do. My husband has to have his done in his teens, it was no big deal and is still VERY senstive, too much so if you ask me.

I will stick the the OP, not the deabte.

And my son did not have his done at birth, he did at 17 months, during another surgery he needed. He had many infections in his foreskin and it was very painful for him. The surgery including the circ after was painful. But we are hoping there will be no more infections.

I myself would not circ, UNLESS, it is done properly, ie. no board, with mum there, pain meds, and done without a clamp very quickly. I'm jewish and there are so many reasons why we do it the way we do. That being said my son was too sick on the 8th day and well one thing after another we left it.
