It was logical back then to be circumcised as there wasn't always running water or a way to keep clean.

It seems that was a political problem. I think Abraham just made it up.

How it a public health issue? The entire world proves otherwise. Some GOVERNMENTS and fanatics think women should be castrated too, to avoid the "public health issue" of infidelity.

His "chosen people", written in a book by who????? how many thousands of years ago???
Generally if you don't want someone to do something, tell them the opposite.

I don't believe in circumcision.....
It's unnecessary, it's painful & it's mutilation.

The beauty of an uncut guy.....
Is wonderful.
And more pleasurable

Leave the darn thing alone.
LOL! Well, I don't know about THAT!

But I agree with not being circumcised UNLESS the OP really feels strongly about it. If he does, go for it.

Just leave your wang alone, or if you feel that insecure move to a country where circumcision is rare = i.e most of the world away from the US.

I'm sorry about your insecurities, but it's not that big of a deal. A lot of women PREFER them...
I should say so.

If you are concerned about what men think, I don't know what to tell you.

If you are concerned about what women think, women think they're great.

I have looked into getting circumcised but the prices are very high most places I have looked and I don't have insurance.

Does anyone have any suggestions on where i can get a circumcision at a reasonable price, or any advice on If its possible to overcome this insecurity? It really has bothered me and made me feel inferior for many years.

Sorry If this is uncomfortable to read for some people on here, it has just bothered me for a long time, I don't have anyone I trust to talk to about this and thought maybe I could get some input here. Thanks

Yeah...I saw that in school but like someone posted on the thread, beyond high school, you being circumcised won't matter. Some prefer circumcised men but I do have to question whether you should change yourself for anyone. Don't you think you're important too? A lot of guys these days are not circumcised and so don't feel alone. Actually, most countries don't have their males snipped down there. From what I know, having your skin intact is suppose to be more pleasurable. You might regret getting rid of it.

Dude, leave the thing well enough alone.
It's how it was meant to be. I wouldn't dare recommend you go for this procedure. How utterly unnecessary
