Circumcised and Uncircumcised Penis
- Promote this Page

Circumcision is a kind of operation done in order to make the male genital organ look different. The size and shape of the shaft varies from person to person. The word circumcision consist of two parts; circum which means around and cision which means to cut. All the boys are born with a hood of skin, commonly known as the foreskin, covering the head of the torso (glans). During the circumcision, the foreskin of the shaft is removed, which exposes the end of the male organ. These kinds of surgeries are most common in United States.

After the foreskin separates from the glan, it is pulled towards the abdomen. This is called foreskin retraction. Most of the males discover how to retract the foreskin of the shaft by the age of 5 years. But this practice should not be forced, especially in infants, as it may harm the shaft, causing pain and bleeding. It has been suggested that circumcision must be done within 2-3 weeks after birth, because the surgery becomes more complicated as the age increases. For those infants, that are born with penis abnormalities are not circumcised at all, as the foreskin may be used a part of reconstructive operation.

Why circumcision??

Some of the reasons for circumcision of penis are listed below -

  • Some of the circumcision operations are performed out of religious beliefs.
  • It makes the shaft cleaner and prevents or cures most of the health problems related to male genitals.
  • The shaft looked better after circumcision.
  • Foreskin, like tonsils and appendix, is part which is not needed, but can cause problems.
  • It can be easily performed when the boys are infants and do no remember it.

Foreskin : A problem

The space between foreskin and glan remains wet naturally. This is mainly due to sweat or urine that remains there. This also causes some dirt and fluff to get trapped in that space. If this part is not cleaned on a regular basis, it can cause infection which makes it red and sore. In the early stages, the foreskin is sealed to the glan. But in the later stages, when the seal breaks, then the foreskin needs to be taken care of in the following ways-

  • The foreskin needs to be pulled back, before urinating and shaken well so that the urine drops are removed completely, before pulling the skin forward.
  • Once a day, the foreskin needs to be pulled back, and the area around glan is washed gently.

Circumcision: Advantages and Disadvantages

There are certain advantages associated with the circumcision process. Some of them are mentioned below -

  • Some studies indicate that circumcised infants are less prone to urinary tract infection (UTI) during the initial years of life.
  • Circumcised males may also have lower risk for getting penile cancer
  • It is also indicated that the procedure of circumcision offers a defense against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and HIV.
  • Cleaning of the shaft become easy when it is circumcised.
  • Circumcision may either decrease or increase the sensitivity at the tip of the torso.

Besides these benefits, there are certain disadvantages offered by the circumcision procedure like any other surgical process. These risks are small, but must be known before opting for the shaft circumcision. Complications in cases of infant circumcision are less, occurring in 0.2% to 3% of cases. The most common ones are minor bleeding and infection, both of which can be easily treated. Two typical forms of local anesthetics used to make the process less painful are listed below -

  • A topical cream which becomes effective in 20-40 minutes.
  • An injectable anesthetic, which becomes effective in less time and has long lasting effect.

Care for Circumcised Penis

The washing of circumcised penis must be done gently, as carelessness can cause discomfort after circumcision. It is recommended, that putting a dab of petroleum jelly on the shaft can alleviate the discomfort. It takes about 7-10 days for a shaft to heal. It is necessary to call a medical specialist if any of the following symptoms are observed -

  • Persistent bleeding
  • Redness of the shaft around the tip
  • Infections, such as pus-filled blisters
  • Inability to urinate normally

Care for Uncircumcised Penis

When the shaft is uncircumcised, it must be clean. There is no requirement of cotton swabs, astringent or other special bath products. Washing must be done with soap and warm water. The foreskin must not be pulled forcibly during the cleaning process. With time, this skin can retract on its own, and pulled away from the glan towards the abdomen.

I'm glad you support circumcising our little boys. It is so difficult to keep them clean in that area. Lets keep that in mind.

I have circumcised both my sons because I did not like the smell of my uncircumcised former boyfriend.

Hi, i am 15 and only recently found out about foreskin retraction. I have took some advice, but whenever i get an erection my foreskin doesnt retract. Does anyone have any help or advice they could give me please?
#4 - Jon - 04/25/2010 - 15:43
Sue, I'm guessing you live in America or Canada, same with the original poster. So you think that young boys/young men aren't capable of washing themselves by pulling back a piece of skin? That's like saying "while I'm brushing my teeth I don't have the strength or might to turn off the tap while brushing" or "I'm too lazy to buy a condom." Please stop being arogent and scared to tell your son "wash up here and here at night in the shower, ok buddy?" and it has been proven that the whole STD or infections thing is a 1 in 1000 chance out of circumsized men. I rest my case

thanks for giving info on circumcision.It is a good thing to be done

The foreskin serves several important functions. It protects the sensitive glans. It provides extra stimulation to the woman during intercourse with its rigged band (like condoms that are "ribbed for her pleasure"). It also contains more than twenty thousand nerve endings. It's among the body's most sensitive tissue - like the lips and finger-tips.

The author talks about the foreskin as a "problem," but it's far from problematic. 85% of the world's men are not circumcised. They are not suffering any sort of problems. In Europe almost nobody is circumcised, but they don't have any trouble keeping clean, and they have lower rates of STDs than Americans.

The foreskin is an important part of a normal, healthy, functional [@]. Just like we don't amputate parts of girls' vulvas to keep them clean, it doesn't make sense to amputate the foreskin, or any other normal healthy body part!

If it were really such a good thing, it would be performed the world over. There is no medical body in the world that recommends circumcision, because there are no proven health benefits. It is a purely cosmetic, painful procedure, which is rarely performed under anaesthetic, and carries the risk of death. I'm so glad it's not done to children in my country.
#8 - Simone - 12/31/2010 - 09:19
Wow - misleading article and people that are not informed. You should not circumcise your sons because you didn't like the smell of your ex-bf, whom was obviously too lazy to cleanse himself. Baby boys are born with foreskin for a reason, and it should not be messed with. There is ZERO proof that circumcision cures and prevents disease, that is a bunch of hogwash. The foreskin is actually there to help PROTECT the [@]. Circumcision is nothing more than mutilation, and is barbaric. It should be outlawed in the US. More and more doctors and hospitals are changing their opinions, and the circumcision rate is down to approx 32%, which is still about 32% too high... at least we're on the right track. I was circumcised at birth, and am outraged by that... It's my body, my [@], and should have been MY CHOICE... And I would NEVER have chosen to be circumcised.
#9 - Eric - 12/31/2010 - 09:21
The people who are "for" circumcision are obviously ignorant of the facts. It does not prevent STDs (abstinence and condoms do) and, besides, who would want to be intimate with someone who does not clean their genitals properly. In most countries on earth, it is a HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION done on NON-CONSENTING INFANTS... his body, and it should be his choice. I encourage you to watch an actual circ before you subject your shallow ideals of what a [@] should "look like" on your innocent infant sons.

Neither of my boys are circumcised. Neither have had any of the problems listed. Neither has any other intact man I know. I refuse to sub ject my children to COSMETIC SURGERY because society says i should. I researched on my OWN, and did NOT listen to the old wives' tales and half-truths pout there about circumcision... it obvious though, that the author bought into them hook, line, and sinker. A 1% increase in UTIs for uintact infants... for the first year of life. After that, the UTI rates are the same for circ'ed and intact boys. The USA is the only developed country to routinely circumcise, yet we have the highest STD/AIDS! If circumcision really did "fix" everything the author claimed, other countries would jump on the circumcision bandwagon... instead, other countries think it's a sick, barbaric American custom and they can't figure out why we don't leave our boys ALONE.
If my boys wan t to be circumcised, they can. It's THEIR right it's THEIR body!
#11 - Megan - 12/31/2010 - 09:27
When I was pregnant I did all kinds of research on circumcision because I wanted to know if only hours or days after my son's birth he really had a part on his genitals so dangerous I needed to have it surgically removed. Turns out, not so much. Foreskin is a normal part of the male genitalia and my son has the right to his healthy genitalia. I'm not going to have a surgery done on my healthy son... no way! If anyone else is digging into this topic I have a few sites and videos I'd recommend.

I hope someone can use these to make an informed decision instead of just blindly going ahead with an unnecessary surgery. After all, it can always be done later when your son is the one making the decision, but it can never be undone- and what if he wants his foreskin? As a parent is it really right for you to take away healthy functioning skin because of your preference?

#12 - Andy - 12/31/2010 - 09:28
Since you pretend to know so much about the subject... Why don't you also include how many babies die each year from circumcision (a cosmetic procedure). And how NO medical [@]ociation in the world recommends it? And how many many insurance companies dont even cover it anymore (or complications caused by it)? And also how many men are angry with their parents for doing this to them so they are now restoring their foreskins to achieve (as close to possible) the sensations they are supposed to feel during [@]. The foreskin (Prepuce... do you even know that word?) DOES have a function. Look it up. And if that's your argument... that's it's useless just like the appendix.. why dont we just cut out our babies appendixes and lop off their ear lobes while we're at it? And maybe even the pinky... who uses their pinky anyways??? And actually... UTIs and infections are MORE common in circed babies due to having an open wound sitting in their own feces/urine, and because their urethra isn't being protected with a foreskin like it's supposed to be. Question circumcision.
#13 - AJ - 12/31/2010 - 09:39
A [@] isn't called uncircumcised- it's called intact, because that's what it is. A normal [@]- the kind men born with that hasn't been hacked up... Intact.

Roy- I'm not sure how old you are or exactly what is wrong... but I can tell you some mens foreskins never fully retract- and as long as it isn't painful all is good. All that being said, if you still don't feel comfortable with what's going on down there you could go see a doctor. Just be sure to go to an intact friendly doctor- some might just recommend circumcision because they have no idea how to deal with an intact [@]- depending on where you live... The Whole Network (www.thewholenetwork.org) has a list of intact friendly doctors in many US states as well as all kinds of information that would be beneficial for you. Peaceful Parenting, a site directed toward parents mainly, (www.drmomma.org) also has all kinds of information on the intact [@] and intact care... I'd recommend doing a lot of digging if circumcision isn't something you like the idea of if you live in the US- talk with your doctor about other options first because chances are you can completely fix the problem (if you have one) without giving up all that sensitive tissue! Good luck to you :-)
#14 - Ace - 12/31/2010 - 09:41
NO, NO, NO. This article as some much fiction I just don't know where to start. First it is there for a reason, if it was not needed it would not be there. It keeps the head of the [@] covered and protected. It is painful, if you have ever watched a video of a baby boy being circumcised you can see that they are in pain. Each year between 100-200 infant boys die from circumcision complications each year, including from anesthesia reaction, stroke, hemorrhage, and infection. Some studies that the numbers are higher, but because cause of death is listed as something else. Such as if the infant dies of meningitis that was due to circumcision and is listed as meningitis as the cause of death, it hard to know that it started with the circumcision unless noted in else where in the childs medical records. Yes, the foreskin can be retracted as early as 5 but sometimes does not retract until puberty and there have been cases of men not being able to retract till they are around 18. Helps prevent STD, no having safe [@] prevents STD. Cleaning is easy for a intact [@]. You clean it by wiping straight down from base to tip. 80% of the world population of men are INTACT. The rate of circumcised infants as fallen to around 30% in U.S. What I find odd is that most people who are against female circumcision, are okay with male circumcision. If a man decides to be circumcised as a adult that is his choice. HIS BODY, HIS CHOICE
#15 - Jamie - 12/31/2010 - 09:49
Circumcision does not make a boy/man any cleaner or healthier. They are born with that skin for a reason. Females basically have that same "extra" skin (as you call it) would you cut that off? Why put your son through a painful cosmetic procedure. Education is all that boys need to know how to care for their [@], we teach them how to wash their hands, clip their finger nails, blow their nose, whats the difference?! Not to mention there are SO many added benefits of the foreskin. One being the added pleasure for both partners during intercourse :-)
Just my two cents....if you're trying to make this decision please find reliable info before cutting your son. If you are a teen boy/man with questions about your [@] b/c you were never taught check out thewholenetwork or saving[@]es for good info.
#16 - MH - 12/31/2010 - 09:54

First off the foreskin does have a purpose, go Google this please its simple.
Second if you clean them right it wont smelly you as a female don't get circumcised because it causes less smell did you, nope I didn't think so. ps it is quite easy to clean "intact don't retract only clean what is seen" see it even rhymes, for most boys that goes until they are about 10 not 5, some wont separate until the age of 15.

The whole "Why circumcision" is just wrong actually circumcisions should be done when the [@] is hard so they dont take of too much skin and end up with a buried [@] or cut into the urethra or have to be cut do bad they have to be turned into a girl (yes it has happened), or worse bleed to death and oh that has happened as well, over 200 babies die every year from complications during and after surgery.
you know what is a good prevention for stds, a condom.
oh and while you are looking things up you should look at the child that got gangrene at 6 days and had to have his abdominal wall, testis, and lower body skin removed. or the many cases of the kids [@] falling off.
As for the anesthetic well thats a lie, they only do that if the parents make them use it and even then they dont wait the time for the baby to be numb. and the cream they use is emla cream which has no business being on a babies [@], go ahead look it up.

There are so many other things wrong in the article but i need to take care of my baby so if you want to know the truth look it up and do research on your own, how about watching a video of a circumcision being done with the volume up?
Don't listen to doctors who get paid over $100 for each child being circumcised and hey bonus check your make up because they use foreskin in some of your anti aging creams, i wonder where they get all the supply from? lets just take a guess shall we.

In the end you need to make a informed choice and how more informed can you be if you do the research your self

ps only 33% of America got their kids circumcised in 2010, and less then 1% around the world this is a fact seriously so if you were worried about the whole bullying thing I dont think that will be a problem for intact boys.
#17 - Jessica - 12/31/2010 - 09:59
The author of this article clearly has relied on myth rather than fact. Circumcised men are not at a reduced risk of disease and may in fact be at an increased risk for certain conditions later in life, such as impotence, higher rates of Chlamydia, and other problems. All the advantages listed are simply false or subjective or impossible to prove. The better rule is for the young man to make the decision and not the doctors ($$) or the parents.
#18 - David - 12/31/2010 - 10:31
Circumcision is ENTIRELY unnecessary, except in very few medical emergencies. The foreskin of the [@] is an important and fully functioning organ. Did you know that there are more that 20,000 nerve endings in the foreskin? If I were a man, I would find that sensibility "needed" and even appreciated. (I know my boyfriend does!) The human body is perfect and self-cleaning in it 's natural state. Sterile urine does not pose any type of health problem, and the small amount of smegma that can accumulate actually serves the purpose of keeping the glans lubricated and soft. Once the foreskin can retract on it's own (which most boys figure out by age 5, but can take until the teenage years to occur), any man can keep his [@] clean with absolutely no problems. Before the foreskin can retract, there is no need to clean under there. Many well-meaning doctors and parents under doctor's instructions have caused pain, suffering and medical complications to their infant sons by retracting the foreskin forcibly. In the US we have outlawed the circumcision of our girls, I do not understand why we continue to violate our young buys in this disgusting manner.
#19 - Stephanie - 12/31/2010 - 10:32
@ Roy - Your foreskin doesn't have to retract all the way, if it is uncomfortable, call around to dr offices asking if the dr has experience with non-surgical treatments re: foreskins. A little steroidal cream applied once or twice a day with light stretching exercises should work very well.

Otherwise, I found this article to be laden with mis/dis-information! So many lies in this article, either the writer doesn't know how to conduct research or has a personal investment in the genital mutilation of or male children.
#20 - court - 12/31/2010 - 11:21
The hygiene of a natural [@] is necessary... and trivial. It is also completely trivial for a [@] partner to verify an intact man's hygiene, and take matters in hand, as it were. A dirty smelly [@] is NOT a reason to take a scalpel to it; just wash it!

Outside of Africa, the Moslem world, and the children of Mother England, nearly all other men are the way Mother Nature made them. Most [@] problems can be blamed on ignorance and a lack of plumbing. Most medically advanced societies have never circumcised. The UK gave up circ in the 1950s, New Zealand in the 1970s. In Australian and Canadian hospitals, it's at 10% and falling. South Korea, a cultural colony of the USA, began circumcising most of its adolescents in the 1960s. There is no evidence that men in western cultures that do not circumcise are less healthy than men in those that do.

This article is profoundly ignorant of the [@]ual virtues of the moving bits removed by circumcision, and of the lifelong [@]ual damage that sometimes results from circumcision. Circumcision has damaged many marriages, without either party knowing that his circ was at fault. Suffice it to say that circumcision removes the most [@]ually senstive parts of the male body. American medical and [@]ual research has not been honest at all about the [@]ual drawbacks of circumcision, so that the continuation of this practice should be deemed unethical.

In North America, it is accepted that a young woman experiment [@]ually with a variety of men before her first marriage. This free spirited exploration has led some of these women to discover the intact [@]. (Every USA university has foreign students.) Some of these women unwisely dispense with condoms. Some of these women post on the internet reports of their [@]ual experiences. These reports can be very revealing of the [@]ual advantages of the natural [@], about which American [@] ed and marriage manuals are silent.
#21 - cosmopolite - 12/31/2010 - 11:22
Well I certainly hope none of your boyfriends were ever offended by your smell and following your suit, loped off their daughter's genitalia.
This article is bull, the only time my husband (uncircumcised thank you GOD) has had ANY trouble is because when he was 11, the Dr. forcibly retracted him.
Jon, that can be normal and fine. As you begin to [@] and have [@], it will either go back on in its own time. Don't force it. THAT is what causes infection, pain, and scars. Roy, sounds like you are being too rough with it, calm down and let it do its own thing, I don't know how old you are but if it has been retracted before, go to the Dr. Try to see someone who won't be pushing to lop the best part off!
This article is misleading and uninformed. It does not require anymore cleaning then a normal [@]. My husband showers, pulls it back while washing and its fine. It DOES NOT require the heavy maintenance suggested in this article.
And if this circumcised [@] was so aesthetically pleasing, then I guess its ok for parents to do the same for their daughter's genitalia to make it "prettier"
The foreskin IS not like tonsils and toenails, it has a function, in fact several.
A. protects the baby's [@] from the foul stuff in their diapers
B. full of AMAZING pleasure inducing nerves (you have no IDEA what you have robbed your son of if you cut it off!)
C. Why do women like ribbed condoms? Because the FORESKIN has the same effect
D. it aids in penetration, GREATLY reduces need for ANY lubrication (as in, you won't be need that KY)
E. they also will never need lotion or lube when they [@]
F. Intact men experience far more sensation in [@] and thus do not push themselves over the edge too quickly trying to feel SOMETHING.

If the cut male is so damn pretty, explain to me the statue of "David" the perfect man or that EVERY picture of Jesus as a baby he is INTACT!
It seems to me also that while this article riducles the cleaning of an intact male (lol yeah I guess I LIKE that my husband has a clean [@]), that in the last paragraph there seems to be a lot more WORK cleaning and keeping a cut [@] from becoming infected and dirty!
Weird too that my husband or my son or my husband's father has NEVER experienced a UTI. \
BTW, women experience UTI's, so maybe it would just be easier is we loped the clitoris off huh? THANK BUT NO THANKS. I'd rather have an antibiotic then to cut off my most pleasurable area! I suppose also I should lop off my breasts to avoid any breast cancer issues I MAY or MAY NOT experience in my lifetime. Saving me a lot of pain right? And last but not least, the HIV "indication" well check out what the Doctors say

And please don't leave it out the many MISTAKES the cutting Doctors make like accidentally cutting off your son's [@], accidentally killing your son because he bleeds to death from an unnecessary surgery, etc. etc. etc.
My friend had it done and then her boy had to have SURGERY AGAIN at 9 months to correct the original problem. (the doctor SCREWED UP)
So tell me again why it is so NECESSARY to make this problem? I'm waiting.......
#22 - Steph - 12/31/2010 - 11:53
This author has clearly not done any research at all on circumcision or the foreskin.

The foreskin DOES have a purpose. It protects the penile glans and is loaded with nerve endings (20,000 to 30,000-- more than twice the amount in the female clitoris) that provide amazing sensory input. The foreskin is even more sensitive than the lips which are 10 times as sensitive as the fingertips! The foreskin is dual layered which means that, during [@], the [@] 'glides' in and out of the foreskin as he penetrates. This results in him feeling one sensation on every in stroke, a completely different sensation on the out stroke (due to the difference in nerves on the inner and outer layers), as well as third sensation from the glans of the [@].

Circumcised men have NO IDEA what they are missing when they have [@]. Not to mention that loss of the foreskin alters the mechanics of [@] in several ways, so the partner is also affected. The altered shape of the circumcised [@] also 'scoops out' the natural lube produced in the [@] which is why artificial lube (KY anyone?) has become such a staple in American [@]ual relationships. [@] with an intact man is significantly more pleasurable than [@] with even the most skilled of circumcised men!

Many men circumcised as adults compare the change in [@]ual pleasure to 'going from only color-TV to always black-and-white' or 'losing an accelerator pedal and being left with only an on/off switch'. Did I mention that the nerves that are left after circumcision are only capable of perceiving pressure and pain? The sensory capabilities of the nerves in the foreskin are unlike--and more complex than--any other nerves in the human body! And, contrary to popular belief, the nature of these sensory capabilities allows the man greater control rather than less. So, no, intact men do not blow their loads too soon because they are 'too sensitive'.

All of those so-called studies claiming health benefits have been debunked. Being circumcised in no way reduces your chance of UTI, STI's, HIV/AIDS or any other infections. Do the research. I'll also point out that 85% of the men in the WORLD are intact. However, the US, in which 3/4 of the adult males are circumcised, have dramatically higher rates of STI's and HIV/AIDS than do other similarly developed nations in which almost all of the males are INTACT. The only nations in which our STI/HIV rates are on par with are under-developed nations in Africa! That should make things pretty clear before you even read the studies debunking circumcision's supposed benefits.

Also, the glans of an intact [@] is moist because the skin of the glans is a mucous membrane NOT because of sweat and urine. The glans is an internal organ that is on the outside of the body, like the eyeball. That's why the foreskin is there to protect. The glans skin is just like the skin inside your mouth, or the skin of a woman's inner labia and [@]. It is SUPPOSED to be moist. For the circumcised, having the glans exposed to open air and rubbing against fabric keratinizes (dries out) the skin. Decades of this lead to desensitization--no wonder Americans have such high rates of erectile dysfunction. Think of it this way: if an intact man were to retract his foreskin and tape it back before getting dressed, he would be stimulated quite quickly by the fabric brushing against his sensitive, exposed glans. Circumcised men don't even notice because they are so desensitized.

The intact [@] is not dirty. In fact, the vulva is far more difficult to clean with all it's creases between labia and the clitoris. Females also produce more smegma than intact males. But, do we cut off little girl's genitalia to make them cleaner? Females are significantly more likely to contract UTI's than are males, but we don't use that as justification to cut off their genitalia, do we?

If an intact man smells, it's because he hasn't bathed, just as a woman will smell if she hasn't bathed. Don't judge an entire gender on the basis of one person's bad hygiene habits.

This isn't even the tip of the iceberg on information regarding the nature of the foreskin and why it is NECESSARY. Circumcision is even worse. Babies actually die from this procedure--a procedure that is not recommended by any medical organization in the WORLD (not even in Israel) because routine circumcision is not medically necessary. Some babies have had their entire [@]es lopped off b/c of botched circumcisions. Some babies get nasty, nasty infections and die from them. Some babies have to have multiple surgeries because of botched circumcisions. The majority of circumcisions are performed without anesthesia because anesthesia has a high risk of causing death in infants. Monitoring studies have shown that babies who are said to be 'sleeping' during the procedure are actually unconscious because the excruciating pain they are experiencing sent them into shock.

Do your homework. The misinformation in this article is astounding.

god has given us foreskin why remove it
#24 - ShinChan - 02/11/2011 - 16:01
ITs obvious that the post is bias towards circumcision. Fact it is not recommended by ANY health organization in the world because the benefits to either way equal out in the end.
STDs are a matter of personal morals and hygene not a foreskin.

Urinary tract infections are equal when you iliminate those born with medical or physical defects who will not be circumcised because of the defect. Once these people were iliminated from the profiles, the rate of urinary track infections were equal - also note that the reduced urinary track infection difference is only in the first 6 months of life.

Where circumcision MAY prove to be better at preventing the contracting of AIDS virus it does nothing for stoping the transmission (you don't have to have aids to transmit it) also circumsion stats show that all other STDs are higher in circed men. in the end the stats showed almost equal numbers in regards to averaging ALL STD's.
PS the study in africa was based only on str8 manogomus couples who have only [@]l [@] no oral no anal no other types of [@] and one partner only.

statistical facts - less than 5% of uncircumcised boys will ever have a problems because of thier foreskin and out of that 5% only 0.07% will ever require a circumcision. yet 14% of boys circ'd will have problems many of which will live with defects due to the produre or plastic surgery to repair damage caused by the procedure.

the list goes on but in the end to circumcised or leave your child in thier normal state of having a foreskin is a choice that is made for personal reasons not medical.

I would like to say that although i don't care either way, it should be a person's own decission not one made by a parent or freind or spouse as they are not the ones who will be living with it or risking anything of thier own if something goes wrong.

Just because i am raised a certain religion it doesn't mean i may want to continue practicing it as an adult as most of the world now is not in the past generations.

Im uncircumcised and i havent ever had problems with my [@]. When i lost my [@]ity at 15, it did not hurt. 2-3 times out of the month when i was younger, i did not wash under the foreskin and i never got infected and still to this day havent had a urinary tract infection. I believe having foreskin is awesome. Granted i dont know what having a orgasm with it circumcised, but i believe that because of the forskin there, its more sensitive.Also, yeah tonsils and the appendix arent needed but your born with it, it must serve some purpose.Besides, if you were a turtle([@]) wouldnt you want to be able to hide in your protective shell(foreskin). I think it being circumcised is ugly and naked and lazy:lazy as in not taking a minute to clean yourself but you can jack off for hours a week. My son is uncircumsed as well and im proud of my decision.

I have a 5 year old boy and he is not circumcised neither is his father and we have no issues what so ever! The ppl whom judge about it maybe u should read about it learn about it they r no different than ppl who have been circumsized....they were born with the extra skin for a reason it should be left that way!

My sister recently had her son circed by a female mohel even though my sister is not Jewish. It only took a few minutes and the lady told my sister that she removes almost all the skin to prevent adhesions and other health resons. She is a Ob/gyn and in her office of 5 doctors, she does almost all the circs. I was amazed that he didnt even seem to notice what she did, he seemed fine even after it was over. My sister talked to other mothers who used her and they all were very pleased with the results of her work.

Having one's boy circumcised is a very natural thing to do. The body is (it is true) very slightly altered. But genitalia varies a lot from person to person and seeing a circumcision on a male is hardly worthy of comment. I like it for being so clean.

Susan, having one's girl circumcised is a very nautural thing to do. The body is very slightly altered and seeing girls get cut is very small procedure, they dont smell when their future husbands have [@] with them. All girls should be clipped. Susan, you should get it done as well, so you dont smell down there when you sweat.

Best thing I ever did was get cut, [@] so much better. It is so much cleaner ,easier to urinate with. I have experienced both as I had it done when I was 24 lucky enough for free in the public system.

Wat a bunch of [@]ing pigs. How about leaving your sons body alone and [@]ing washing his [@]. I can [@]ure you that with proper higene, NORMAL [@]es smell just fine. Try buying some soap, it will be cheaper than chopping off a part of your sonĀ“s body. You people are pathetic. I am a white american, for all of you who are wondering

As a gay male I can tell you that most uncircumcised males stink and no way would I suck their cock!
