How common is it for a male to live his entire life without ever having to get circumcised?

Most of the world doesn't circumcise males! Including Europe and the other continents...smh...circumcision is elective and is not the typical in many parts of the world - mostly just the U.S. are rates so high.

circumcision has nothing to do with life expectancy.

I am 58. I have never known anyone who 'required' a circumcision for any reason outside of religious.

My father was circumcised when he turned 60. He said that he had heard so much about it, but nobody honestly had experience both ways, so he wanted to be able say from personal experience which way was 'best'. He decided to get it done at age 60, and after sampling another dozen females, he would be able to report which way is 'better'. Sadly he died before he was able to sample that many more females.

Not getting circumcised will not take away years from your life just as getting circumcised will not add years.

Circumcision is only necessary if there is a medical problem that requires the procedure.

If he was born before say the early 1930s probably very common. My dad, born in 1906 died at 93, without having anything cut off. My sister said her hubby, born in 1930 was not circumcised. I am not sure the 2 are connected in any way.
