I asked him about this and he said that when he performed circumcisions on babies, he used the sharpened thumbnail to cut the final piece of the foreskin off Ohmy
Ugghhh!Ohmy

I have nobody to blame but myself.

You're in trouble!

While I agree with the reasoning behind the whole anti-circumcision view, I watch my fair share of porn and I gotta admit that I'm glad I got cut. It's more convenient, and I think (I know it's a cultural thing, but my wife would agree and that's what's important) that it looks better (and from what I hear smells better, ewwwwww).

That's really the only reason the practice persists in the US. Everyone's doing it... Rolleyes

But no, seriously, if you have a hygiene problem with foreskin, you're gonna have a hygiene problem without foreskin (because you are just nasty dirty).


Anyway, nothing says created in God's image like cutting off part of that image, right?

True. But aside from the god thing, I prefer my junk cut.

This is an awkward conversation now isn't it? Blush

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Given that the decision was made for you and not by you, you cannot possibly have sufficient personal experience to have an informed opinion of both.

As a subjective matter, I'd lean towards millions of nerve endings being a more powerful argument than mere appearance. But it's not exactly practical to do a controlled study Confused .

You, sir, are absolutely 100% correct. I know that there's no way I'm going to win in this argument.

Fact remains: subjectively, I like my shit cut. I may be completely wrong about it, but there it is. I have no qualms with the uncut, in fact I'm curious as to what it would be like to have said uncut junk. It would be fun to experience it for a day. It's really not a big deal for me either way, and that's the thing. If I were uncircumcised, I'd probably prefer it that way. But I'm not, and I like it like that. I guess it's just not really that big of a deal to me (the argument that is, my junk is big, huge in fact, don't get me wrong Laughat )

Millions of nerve endings? Perhaps. I still got enough left to satisfy. It's sensitive enough as it is.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Why is it so prevalent in the US (apart from the "well everyone does it" explanation, it must have started for a reason)? As far as I know it has never been normal practice here in the UK. I only know of one person personally who is circumsized, and it was done for health reasons.

Well, sure! You can't say it's subjectively better, because that's an impossible judgement.

You can say you're fine with it, because that's a perfectly reasonable opinion. Actually I'd say it's an eminently healthy opinion - because the alternative is to be NOT fine with it, and that's bordering on bodily dysphoria, which is probably not a good thing Tongue .

There's... no "perhaps" about it. S'a fact.

Hummm. Well. I have no way to relate to this , being female and all that, but doesn't cutting the foreskin off make for less sensation? Not just on the man's part but maybe on the woman's end of thing? A little more friction?? My husband is circumcised and every sexual experience before marriage was with circumcised men so I don't have any other experience.

Curious what other women think and.....um.....feel.

“That trunk of humours, that bolting-hutch of beastliness, that swollen parcel of dropsies, that huge bombard of sack, that stuffed cloak-bag of guts, that reverend vice, that grey Iniquity, that father ruffian, that vanity in years?”

"Dr. John Harvey Kellogg recommended circumcision of boys caught masturbating, writing: "A remedy for masturbation which is almost always successful in small boys is circumcision, especially when there is any degree of phimosis. The operation should be performed by a surgeon without administering anaesthetic, as the pain attending the operation will have a salutary effect upon the mind, especially if it be connected with the idea of punishment.""

According to Penn and Teller, the foreskin, when pulled back, is ribbed, like those "ribbed for her pleasure" condoms. Some women say that feels much better. I'm not one so I can't say for sure.
