Feelings on Circumcision

Recommended Posts

Brutus    409

For the record, I am circumcised. I wish it would've been my choice to make when grown. That being said, a coworker of mine has a daughter that just gave birth recently. The next day, another woman in the office said "she had him circumcised right?" and the other woman replied "oh yeah, he's all set." Then she continued on laughing about how the boy screamed in pain and how much blood there was. The other women found this funny as well. I've always hated how male genital cutting is mocked and written off as something to laugh at. In the spirit of equality, it should be met with as much disgust as female circumcision. It sickened me that these women were laughing at a baby experiencing so much suffering, just because they like the cut look. I've seen videos of the procedure and find it disturbing. Aesthetics is not a valid reason, nor is the so called hygienic benefits. With such logic, it would make sense to cut girls breasts out to prevent breast cancer, or removing teeth because brushing them is so much work. Yes these are extreme examples but the reasoning is the same.

Some doctors have enough nerve to say that no sensation is lost in the procedure. The same doctors will freely admit that foreskin develops from the same sensitive tissue as the clitoris. Others say it's no big deal since the boy won't remember. Still not a valid reason because that is no different than striking the baby or an Alzheimer patient because that also will be forgotten. There is new research coming out revealing how the procedure alters the nervous system and pain perceptions permanently and the additional pain of urine pouring over the open wound as it heals. Circumcision rates are going down so that eases my mind to a degree but still the fact that it is still allowed and parents, particularly mothers still often want this done to their sons gets under my skin. Sorry for the rant but it was all relevant. Bottom line, nature put it there for a reason and no one should have a right to alter the most intimate part of a child's body in the name of personal preference. This is a gross violation in my view. I am not starting this topic to argue but to allow others to say where they stand. Agree or disagree?

Disagree, this barbaric custom no longer has a place in this world. I'm not cut, and it's never been an issue, it really is a no brainer to keep clean, and my ladies love it, lol.

I was circumcised in my late 30s for medical reasons.  I can testify that sensitivity is definitely lost.  I would much prefer to have remained intact.

Doing it for cosmetic reasons is completely barbaric,  and circumcising children without their consent ought to be a criminal offence.

Each to their own.Im not.I certainly believe it should be illegal on children,purely on religious grounds,unless strictly for medical reasons.If the child wants to have it,wait until its at least 18.

Sorry you had to have it done. You could look into restoration. Some guys have had success with it. I may try it myself one day.

I'm with you 100 percent on this issue. For the record, I'm intact. Also against female genital mutilation in it's many justifications.

I was uncircumcised and went to 2 schools in NZ and 1 in Australia where I seemed to be the only one plus another in Aus. where there was one other guy uncircumcised.

To round it off I should have been cut because the hole in the end of my foreskin closed up to smaller than the hole in the end of my dick! I was about 4 then. Mother was too embarrassed to do anything about it. I didn't get it cut until I was a lot older. For me the cut life is seriously better.

I'm uncut and will remain so.  I can understand the process for medical reasons, as @sven22 mentioned, but can't see any other reason.  I'm with @Scot_Lover, automatic circumcision of children, male or female is, barbaric.

 I am convinced that having a full hood has made the glans more sensitive but I could be wrong.  Regardless, I will die uncut.  Thank you, mum and dad, for not following the herd.

Totally agree that this should not happen at birth.  I am not circumcised and am quite happy that way.  

I did have an issue when I was much younger that my foreskin didn't contract correctly as it was stuck to the head of the penis.  I had to go through some very careful exercise to gradually release it a bit at a time.  It was painful but worth it in the end.

I don't think it is fair to modify any person's anatomy without their consent.  It should be their choice when they are old enough.

The incredible sensitivity of the glans penis and it's underside "male clit" need a covering to keep it  moist and unchapped by clothing. Some of the most delicate sensations, such as applying the head to a nipple, then pulling down the skin to cover both the head and the nipple, and then releasing either pee or cum can't be done when circumsized. Likewise a pointed tongue inserted between the foreskin and the cockhead is simply exquisite.

The foreskin was invented specifically to protect the bell end.  And in the case of the one to the left there, it's actually more sensitive than the rest of me.

Unless there is a pressing medical need, it should be left alone.  I've never understood genital mutilation of ANY gender, for any reason (other than medical, as I suspect I mentioned).

I don't think that any part of the body should be cut off without medical need. "gross violation" pretty well sums up my thoughts on the issue; let the one who owns the foreskin choose when they're old enough. The argument that "they won't remember the pain" isn't a valid excuse for wanting someone's genitals to customized to your own liking (should it really matter anyway?...). The fact that women were laughing about putting an infant through such pain disturbs me...

From the female perspective, sex with uncut men feels quite different & has more sensation to offer from the movement of the skin. They do tend to be more sensitive as well; it's terrible that so many males are deprived of what nature has given them for good reason, in lieu of cultural norms.

I think to do this to children for religious reasons is barbaric and should be stopped.If it has to be done it should only be for unfortunate medical reasons,or individual choice,for whatever reason you would want this.

The Jewish and Islamic faith I think are more into it then anyone else because of Abraham, 

men with foreskin cums faster then men without, my experiences
