How many of you guys are circumcised

Americans take it for granted - being circumcised. However, most of the world (and this includes our European bretheren) don't participate in this odd little tradition. So my question is, how many people are still hooded, and how many got the axe? Do you realize that the person from across the sea (or across the state, even) could have a piece of their dick missing, or vice versa? Have you guys ever considered that as defensive as American men are of their penises, they think nothing of letting a doctor or even a drunken Rabbi snip off a large chunk of it?I'd like to get opinions from both sides.

    Just saw an episode of Penn & Teler's Bullshit based on this.
    Don't know what to think now.

    Don't ever have children and if you have had kids you should really put them up for adoption and not let them grow up to be as fucked up as you

    Guzzo, what the hell are you talking about? I was speaking of the United States, you goof. The United States is one of the few countries where this is performed on the majority of the male population and for about 95% of them religion has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Don't ever have children and if you have had kids you should really put them up for adoption and not let them grow up to be as fucked up as you

    You are seriously fucking nuts. I would check into getting an evaluation for a passive-aggressive disorder.

    Other than not candy coating certain issues, I can't say I'm any more harsh on any group that I would be on my own.

    It's actually a serious topic, the only person who brought it to a stupid level was you.

    Hey Graf, for us circum-dudes, can you please essplane the benefits of the hood?

    You seem pretty enthusiastic about this topic, it's your second post about it.

    I didn't know I had posted about it before.

    Actually I was bored but I was curious. I mean, most people in the US take it for granted but chances are a lot of the non-American strutters that are male probably aren't circumcised.

    I was just curious what some of you guys (serious) thoughts on it were. Like I said, as protective of their penises as most men are, your typical American thinks nothing of having a fairly large portion of it (or their kids') wacked off. This especially bewilders me when many are performed by people who have no medical background whatsoever - and it is definitely a medical procedure.

    My interest was piqued when I was in high school and read an article on the necessity or lack thereof about circumcision in an issue of Time. From there I did a paper on it, and from there I had a son who I decided would be better off making his own decisions about cutting off a part of his dick rather than have me do it for him, especially since I had no sayso in my own procedure. It was funny, because I got a lot of negative reaction, mostly with rationales such as, "It's nasty," "because you're supposed to," and "because the bible says you should!" Not exactly at the top of my list of valid reasons for much of anything.

    Anyway, short story and reason why you should keep it - in the US it mostly originates from the 1800s as a way to prevent masturbation, which we all know doesn't work. Presently they rationalize it as a way to prevent a certain type of cancer, which most men have (if i remember correctly) about a 1 in 300 chance of getting (which is 1/3 of 1% or .003_ for you non-math people).

    The reason why you would want to keep it is that it's part of how you're supposed to physically sexually function. The vagina and penis form a kind of system where they work together to make you do the deed if you will. It's like the vagina is the outside portion, then the foreskin is the middle portion, and your actual penis is the inside. Without it men have to rely on friction only which is a part of the reason why a lot of circumcised guys aren't as sensitive as they should be, and why a lot of circumsised guys have issues with condoms - no friction. If they had a foreskin, friction wouldn't be an issue, and most likely neither would condoms (well, to a degree... your dick will still be wrapped in latex).

    And if you want to get down to a convenience issue, uncircumcised men don't need lube to masturbate. Crazy shit.


    I know a lot of people will play off the sexual issue like oh that's not important but it's actually a form of genital mutilation (think Africa). Even following the rationale used today, you're cutting off an important part of you (or your kids) body on the 1/3 of 1% chance that they may have a medical issue with their foreskin.

    This is completely ignoring the risks of complication from surgery, which is what circumcision is, hence my concern about certain people getting circumcised by people whose education on the subject took place in a church or similar environment, not a medical school. Even by a doctor, any surgery creates a risk.

    So, that's it.

    Americans got hang ups (no pun) about the hood.

    My son went unscathed.
    Suprisingly to me at the time, some of my friends have implied that I made a bad decision. I disagree.

    When I heard that uncircumcised guys had more sensation in their wangs, I felt a little pissed that I was foreskin-less. I mean, who would want to hear that their enjoyment of sex is less than it could be!
    Supposedly, though, it's a lot harder to keep clean from infection and smegma (BEST WORD EVER) if it's uncircumcised. I guess I'll never really know if it would be a good trade-off.
    And, at the risk of getting a little too AYO here, you don't need any lube. I don't want to explain how, but you can figure it out.

    Well, although I don't know from experience (hence the reason for the post), I will say that I've heard the instance of infection is very low if you keep it clean... which is supposedly not hard, pegged at a difficulty level somewhere between cleaning a fingernail and washing your asscrack. Me personally, even excluding the whole sexual pleasure aspect of it - if someone asked me if I'd rather clean my fingernail or have it chopped off, best believe I'd vote to clean my fingernail. I think you can guess my feelings about having a piece of my dick chopped off so I don't have to worry about cleaning it.

    And, at the risk of getting a little too AYO here, you don't need any lube. I don't want to explain how, but you can figure it out.

    Well, if we're counting hands only, count me out. And if we're talking some other method, well, I'm not that flexible.

    Interesting thread.



    Grafwritah actualy said most things that came to my mind when reading this.

    Just wanted to add to the hygiene issue:



    You will not have any problems with odor, or smegma if you know how to properly handle your dick.



    I guess this is a typical case of "don't talk about it, don't touch it, better don't even think about it, it's dirty!"



    I guess we're all civilized enough to shower at least once a day, right?

    If you wash your dick at least once a day you will never develope any smegma.



    Wash your dick in the morning and in the evening and after a piss, get rid of the last drop of urine by giving it a dip with a piece of toilet paper. This should be standart procedure for any civilized man and will keep your cock nice and appetizing all day long -clean enough to eat off of it.



    Some were mentioning infections.

    I hate to break it to you but infections come from fucking around without using a condom and not from having an intact foreskin.



    Now if you grow up and nobody teaches you how to keep things clean down there, then you will start having a problem and if you're not creative and smart enough to figure out yourself that you discourage biological growth in hot and humid places simply by washing, well, then I guess you should get your piece chopped off, the more of it, the better...



    Why don't you cut off your lips? This would keep your mouth dry all the time and therefor permanently eliminate oral odor and you wouldn't even have to brush your teeth. You might loose most of the sensation on your tongue but after a while you'll forget how sweet a kiss used to feel and how complex a wine could taste. Cut off your children's lips when they are babies and they will never even know what they are missing.



    This procedure would also leave you with a permanent and beautiful smile

    I grew up in NZ and I'm pretty sure not many blokes were given the chop. I can remember a teacher named Mr O'Donnell telling a classroom of 13-14 year old boys how to clean the foreskin .. I've never heard of anyone having a foreskin infection, but I suppose it ain't the sort of thing you'd broadcast ..



    theres a rather famous play in NZ called 'Foreskin's lament'







    A quick search turned up the following para which I thought was rather fitting for this thread:



    "Rugby provided both the setting for his spectacularly successful first play, Foreskin???s Lament, and the metaphor for a society in which old codes and hypocrisies were anatomised. Professional performances of Foreskin???s Lament around the country in 1980 and 1981 happened to coincide with the political and civil upheaval leading up to the 1981 Springbok rugby tour of New Zealand, and McGee???s humour, savagery and lament for lost innocence made the play provocative and influential far beyond the usual realms of theatre audiences."





    supposedly its being made into a movie, 'skin and bone' - a search on that phrase crashed my explorer, so no poster sorry
