*giggle* I dated a guy for quite a few months in college and NEVER knew he was intact! My roommate went to HS with him, and so it was sorta known he was the only intact penis for miles (locker room chat). Once we broke up, my roommate asked me how it was having sex with an uncircumcised penis. Boy, was I shocked to find that out after the fact!

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

I commented on this a LONG time ago. I had just found out I was having a boy and DF wanted to circumcise, I did not.

Well he was born 12/28 and he's NOT circumcised!! DF didn't do any research of his own, but he saw how adamant I was and said it wasn't worth arguing over. That was good enough for me. My son is in tact and I'm PROUD of that!

Really, it will probably not look like daddy's for a long time even if he was circd, so his argument was out. It took him a little while, but he is ok with it now. I am so glad we didn't. It is easy to care for and there was no worries about it healing, or not healing properly. (one of my big problems with it is that it can really mess up a mans parts if screwed up)

Nature didn't mess up that part of his body, why take a chance that someone else will.
I read a biography about a pair of male twins. Ones circ got messed up and basically burned his entire penis off so with the "expert" advice of some quack psychologist in the 50s they tried to raise him as a girl.
It happened when popular belief in psych was that nurture was stronger in determining sex roles than nature. Boy were they wrong.
All bc of a botched circumcision. :/

When she came back, she had the nerve to admit that HER OWN HUSBAND WAS INTACT. She was ignorant, he was ignorant, yet they had swallowed the whole cultural argument that foreskins are gross!

Then, there was an interesting study: they interviewed mothers of sons who had their sons circumcised, asking them about their sexual experiences. Even though the women had chosen to have their sons circumcised and said they preferred circumcised partners, the detailed survey questions revealed that they had LESS PAIN AND DRYNESS with the intact partners.

My point being, most people are repeating what they have heard, blindly going along with the culture, but they are actually totally ignorant. In this generation, however, we have 48-68% of the new boys remaining intact (there are conflicting figures.) There will not be a chance for ignorance like this to continue, nor prejudice against foreskins, when half to 2/3 of the men in the generation are intact!
That is a great story! I am going to pass that along to people when they ignorantly say that comment. The mil was actually the last person and well let's just say we had a pretty unpleasant conversation! My hope is with the trend changing people will definitely become much more informed!

Once we started telling people many girlfriends came out with similar stories. Congrats on your new little addition to be and glad to hear you will be keeping him whole
