If we had boys, I would not have chosen circumcision unless my husband were really adamant. Never had to cross that path with him, though. As a woman, I've encountered both and it's all good. Maybe someone who is SUPER EXPERIENCED might notice a difference, but not me. There are more critical elements.

I second that whole heartedly!
I've never understood the reasoning behind wanting a boy to 'look like his daddy' argument. I certainly hope my son is not traumatized that his hair and eyes are a different color than his father's, or that my daughter is not scarred by the fact that her body type and chest size are as unlike mine as is possible!
My son is not circumcised and his father is. I really don't think he's ever agonized over the difference.

I say let the child grow to the ripe age of 18 and decide whether or not he wants a circumcision. My bet... He'll decline.

Reasons for circumcision:

You are 75% more likely to catch HIV with a foreskin intact penis. This is because their are gland /mucos membranes, receptors and receptor cells inside the foreskin. I know, I know, your baby will never engage in risky behavior, but.........you never know. You know what they say about being married to the preacher. See the decade long African study done on the subject. The infection rate among African males circumcised, versus those who were not was less then half.

You can and will catch yeast type infections in that area, that you will never catch being circumcised. If the woman you are intimate with has a little yeast overgrowth, you will have it too. If you;re circumcised, it is never a problem.

You are far less likely to suffer from pre-mature ejaculation being circumcised. This is because the foreskin causes much great stimulation to the sensative area of the penis during intercourse. Remember it was designed to get a job done, making babies. Foreskin actually makes you C*M much faster!

And in surveys, 88% of women found a circumcised penis more attractive then one not. Guys, you're more likely to get oral sex with a circucised penis.

Look at the new research out there. This has all been debunked. The penis is self-cleansing. Unless you have research to back up your claims (and not flimsy sources that even themselves admit the research is incomplete), all of the above that you've stated are actually quite untrue. Especially about the greater stimulation---I know for a fact I've read several studies about how circumcised penises are LESS sensitive because the most sensitive part is on the foreskin no longer exists to them.

Strange thread, I read it was pushed in the United States by the founder of Kellogg’s as a method of keeping kids from masturbating. Seems he thought sex was for procreation only.

Girls are more prone to UTIs than boys, so let's circumcise them too! And you might as well cut off their breasts while you're at it so they don't get breast cancer.

UTI in women has to do with the length of the urethra. The close location to the anis and the shorter urethra allows bacteria to cause infections easier than in men with longer urethras and greater distance between the two areas.
I think insurance companies are now not covering most of the Circumcisions and this is why you see such a drop in the number in the US. I have to agree if it is not needed than do not do it, and from what I have read today it is not needed. Several articals state you reduce the sexual feeling by as much as 50%. Too late for me to fuss, but I think with that data I would have passed if given the choice myself.
The rest of the world is doing fine with foreskins, and we would have also been OK with them, but we seem to think we can design better than nature.
As a nation we seem to still suffer from the puritan sexual hang up; we need another decade like the 60’s to free us up a bit more.

This is not college lady, I'm not going to cite my finding for you. Google and 10 seconds of research and you will find these findings, 100% accurate!

The HIV statement in my original post is not a myth. Do you know why women are 30 times more likely to catch HIV from a single exposure then a man is? Because their vagina is a giant mucus membrane. Mucus membranes in this area of the reproduction system are lined with what we call receptor white blood cells. So when a man ejaculates inside the vagina and these protector receptor cells find HIV in there, they go, "oh boy, we better do something about this." As with all infective viruses, the white blood cells grab the foreign virus and carry it back to the lymph nodes where it can be gobbled up. This is great for the flu or cold virus, but with HIV, it turns out to be a big mistake. Got it so far? Now the HIV is inside the lymph nodes and quickly reproduces and attaches itself to cells inside the lymph nodes. This is how women become so easily infected from straight, female to male sex.

How does this relate to male circumcision? When a male is not circumcised his penis has essentially (*although a much smaller area) the same mucus membrane area, under the folds. These too, just like the female vagina are lined with white, defensive receptor cells ready to combat foreign virus. Man has sex with an infected female and the same scenario listed above happens. When he is circumcised, that mucus membrane area is gone and so are the chances for infection. The only way a male who is circumcised can ecome infected is through the urethra or cut on the penis.

There is your fact! It is no myth, decades of scientific study will back it.

To your other dispute, you need to read my post again. You are agreeing with me without even being aware of it. A circumcised penis is MUCH more sensitive, thus you are more likely to suffer from premature-ejaculation., lack of control. Something most sexually active women very much dislike in their men.
