Re: Way !@#$ OT: Circumcision?


Congrats Juan. I say snip him. I am snipped and if I ever have a boy [or boys}, I will have them circumsized as well. That's just my $.02.

We just had a little boy who is now 4 months old. After doing a ton of research there are no medical benefits to being cut. Sure, if you are planing on your kid to have a lot of unprotected sex with strangers, you might have to worry about the STD thing, but come on. It isn't just 50 percent of the world being uncut, it is 90 percent of the world is uncut and 50 percent in the USA. There are some great advantages to not being cut as well. Much more sensitivity and pleasure during sex, the foreskin allows for extra play when introducing the member at the beginning of a sexual encounter.

The thing that did it for me was there was an interview with a man who was cut later in life, around 18 and he said that he would go back if he could. I am cut, my son is not. It isn't that big a deal. Medically there is no reason for the procedure, it is simply a cosmetic procedure and some would say a proactive procedure to keep from getting infected perhaps. However, if we cut off every part of our body that can get infected, there goes your eyes and ears. I don't know, just didn't make sense to us when we were talking about it.

You will second guess yourselves for months and then come birth even talk about it again. Just do what you believe is most comfortable for the both of you, but remember, once it is gone it aint ever coming back.

You pretty much summed up why I'm considering not doing it.

As far the cosmetic thing, that's the way the insurance companies see it now. It'll cost us $500 to do it out of pocket. $500 to have my son's wiener hacked? That doesn't sound like a good deal! lol

Plus, in the unfortunate even that he happens to end up being born without eyelids, the foreskin can be re-used to make new ones for him.

The only downside to that is he will be a little cockeyed for life.

Note to Chef:
NO disrespect meant at ALL by my joke, and I hope everything goes very well for him and for your wife and for you as well.
I know you already know that, I just wanted to make sure.

I would say if you believe in female circumcision, then do it. If you believe that is a horrid & cruel practice, then don't.

As far as the STD thing, I agree with the other poster. In fact, I would take it a step further. I have heard the argument that a circumcised boy may feel it "safter" to have unprotected [sign in to see URL] thus be less careful. I'll tell you this, if I have a boy one day, I'm not cutting anything off his body b/c the other kids may have something cut off.

Re: Way !@#$ OT: Circumcision?


i say cut it. hopefully he gets to enjoy lots of unprotected sex with strangers. i sure did. of course i had a lot of luck, while others, notsomuch. drunk college kids are dumb, and i seriously doubt the circumcision will effect any decisions to wrap it or not. also, more sensitive? sheesh, you want him to last more than 2 minutes, right?

none of that made any sense.

Huh?

You are equating male circumcision with female genital mutilation?

C'mon..

Historically, the term female circumcision was used, but that "this procedure in whatever form it is practiced is not at all analogous to male circumcision and so the term 'female circumcision' gave way to the term 'female genital mutilation'.
Shell-Duncan states that the term female circumcision is a euphemism for a variety of procedures for altering the female genitalia.
Toubia argued, in 1995, that the term female circumcision "implies a fallacious analogy to nonmutilating male circumcision, in which the foreskin is cut off from the tip of the penis without damaging the organ itself."

[sign in to see URL] much pain & nerve damage has to be done before it's mutilation?

In any [sign in to see URL] say leave the kid as he was made. If he later in life decides he wants to go under ther knife, he always can. It is a totally barbaric practice in my opinion and I would never do it to my child. Just my 2 cents on the topic.
