I have seen articles recently stating that some insurance companies won't pay for a baby boy's circumcision because it is "unnecessary". Of course coming from insurance companies that could just be because they don't want to pay for anything if they don't have to.

I'd deem it unnecessary unless there was a health reason to do so. For example, somebody who can't pull his foreskin down all the way for sex, or otherwise has pains during intercourse. A circumcision can fix that. Otherwise, unnecessary surgery doesn't seem something one should spring for.


Also, I'd like to think women could also be turned off by attributes like size and shape.... things that can't really be fixed anyways.

Thank you for the responses, i'm still not sure, because i've heard of many women rejecting men because they were uncirmcised but never because they were.

Op I've never heard of such a thing, the culture where you live is obviously quite different and I don't mean that in a good way.

No big deal. Some prefer the anteater look.

Besides my own personal preference for it to be uncut, I also want to add that I consider circumcision to be barbaric.

I will never understand how so many
parents put their brand new babies
through something so unnecessary & painful.

Getting cut is an easy painless procedure that should be a personal decision ,i dont agree with default circumcision for newborns and think if they want it it's a decision that they can make for themselves later in life.

Thank goodness I'm circumcised then. I can't afford to "finish" any quicker than I already do.

Balony! If they are going to reject you for it, they would have rejected you for some other reason had you been cut.

You ARE WAY over reacting! YOU are paranoid over something that hasn't even happened yet!!!

TRUE< SOME woman will reject you, but then SHE isn't "right for you", IS SHE??? HSe might also reject you for having a mole on your face!

I was born "natural", still am [still have my foreskin}, and a citizen of the USA.

Talk about trauma over it? From 4th grade all through 12th grade, we had to take public showers in gym class! during those entire 9 years, having taken showers with many many many boys {50 to a class, rotating groups two to three times a week on a "6 day" rotational schedule, and change in student composition each year}, I only ever saw ONLY ONE other boy who had a foreskin!!!!

Most of all, I was most often pointed at, ridiculed, and tormented over my foreskin and was asked STUPID questions like: "what's wrong with it?", "WHy is it NOT "normal"? {GUESS WHO is NOT NORMAL? THose with cut ones!!!!}!!! I was joked about, laughed at and was so embarrasing!!!

But I survived!, Oh, and YES, I HAVE been rejected due to it, but moved on, and now have a wonderful spouse who never batted an eye,never questioned it, and and NEVER had a problem with it. {REMEMBER: I was 'rejected' by the boys in gym class and SEX had NOTHING to Do with it!!!!}

Now, as a sexually active adult I am VERY GLAD IT IS IN PLACE...I have a heightened sense of pleasure under there....and thoroughly enjoy having one!!! Many of the nerves of the penis are under there, and many have them cut off? I am surprised they can even achieve orgasm!

Nature put it there, WHO ARE WE TO TAMPER WITH IT?

Those who say it is harder to clean are IDIOTS, oh, they MAY have some issues when he is a newborn as it is more firmly attached {but like the dropping of testicles it loosens and changes as he ages}, but as he ages, it is no harder to clean than your thumb, and many who claim that are women or cut men...who HAVE NO IDEA what it is or isn't like to clean one!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT totally mystifies me! it washes REAL WELL with SOAP AND WATER! No mystery there!

Best of luck to you mimoso, BUT DON'T MAKE A DRASTIC MISTAKE BASED ON HERESAY OR A FEW IDIOTS who may have rejected you over it! you CANNOT "put it back on" once it is cut off!

{oh the pain of it all}
