There've been tons of "wrong place" and "wrong patient" and "wrong surgery" screw-ups here in the land of the free.

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, an orthopedic surgeon has a 25% chance of operating on the wrong site at some point during his career.

I know it changes EVENTUALLY.

Not sure I'd call that "looking forward to something" though, as I imagine this takes some of the sensation away during sexual intercourse as well.

I don't think that this is true so much today. Anyone who goes into either the outpatient surgery centers or a hospital know the lengths they go through to make sure they have the right patient and the right procedure. I suppose it could still happen that if you are in to have your gall bladder out they take something else instead. I think there is more chances of something being left behind because of incompetent staff who don't count what is given and what is returned before closing up.

Twenty two years ago, almost to the day, I went into a California reproductive health clinic for a routine procedure. And I left with a vasectomy.

Oh, wait: that's why I went in, for that routine procedure!

Best $300 in 1997 dollars I ever spent, age 29. God knows how many beartraps I've avoided since due to that stellar decision.

Yeah I wouldn't either. I wouldn't want anything cut off my genitals. It doesn't sound fun at all.

Then they amputated the other leg. He tried to sue but the lawyer told him he didn’t have a leg to stand on.

For me it was at age 21. Pretty much the heart of my 'sowing wild oats phase'. That said, it was not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, although it led to a great deal of anxiety in the weeks leading up to the surgery and during the several week recovery period. Now I am glad I had it done.

I am fully functional and get a great deal of pleasure from sex, and if anything, I have more control over my act, if you know what I am saying, which is appreciated by my partner who may take a bit longer to be satisfied.

I had a sex life before and after circumcision so I, unlike many people, actually know what I am talking about.

That said, by and large, I think male circumcision is unneccessary and should not be the default, but some people, especially those who were circumcised as babies, seem to think they are missing out on something and it makes them desperately insecure.

^On the contrary most "intactivists" seem to be uncircumcised men who THINK circumcised men wonder what they're missing and secretly pine to have their foreskins back when in reality 99.7% don't care.

I'm going to call BS on this. Women in UK prefer what they are used to and that is fully functional and intact. I lived in the UK for some time and, having been born in America, it became a conversation with the women I dated in the UK. Not necessarily to the point where it was a problem, but the women definitely had a preference for what the norm is.

I was circumcised while living in Norway where intact foreskins are the norm. I never had a social/sexual problem in the least. In fact I think I punched above my weight on the basis of being an 'interesting American'. Maybe your dating pool was very immature?

Sure they may have thought it was interesting and talked about it, sometimes women gossip about their partners, I'm afraid. Like you said yourself, it was never to the point where it was a problem, so who cares what their preference might be. I have a lot of preferences regarding an ideal sexual partner's body, but I live in the real world and have appreciated every women for who she is and what she 'had', bodywise.

I don't know what to tell you. It sounds like you have a sorry sex life due to your insecurities. You might want to look at therapy since one thing is for sure, your foreskin ain't coming back.
