Things really have changed. Fewer and fewer male infants are getting circumcised in the U.S., thank goodness. In 2013, the CDC reported for the first time that male circumcision rates had dropped (from 64.5 percent in 1979 to 58.3 percent in 2010). I have seen other figures for the U.S. that suggest 82.5% here, but that's Wikipedia. NIH reported in 2016 that 72% of American men are circumcised.

In the UK, Europe, Japan, Taiwan and China, the vast majority of men are not circumcised. In New Zealand and Australia most men are not circumcised.

Circumcision is practiced widely in Africa, especially Northern Africa.

Ive been with a few men that were intact. But ive never actually seen a flaccid intact one, so I can say in my experience there is no difference in experience and very little difference in appearance. My ex husband and my current husband are circ and so are my sons. I allowed their father to decide. but if I were to do it again I don't think I would. My sister's ex husband and her current husband as well as her son are intact. Its something weve discussed. it isn't a big deal to me but I remember when I was younger it was intimidating. And sort of scary.


From what ive learned from research there isn't any benefit to it. And what ive learned from experience and talking to people is that the skin serves a purpose. It is an integral part of the penis. While the penis works just fine without it, it works more naturally with it. My husband says if he could change it he would

I don't think it's anyone's business if your child is circed or not. If someone asked I'd be offended.

Agreed. No idea why people think they have to have a say in what others do or donít do. Or why the donít understand basic boundaries.

I think it's important to speak up for people who can't speak up for themselves. When healthy babies have parts of their bodies cut off, without their consent, for very specious reasons, that seems worth speaking up about. But maybe that's just me.
