When circ's go bad... - page 17

Has anyone seen a circ go really bad? I saw one today where the doc took too much foreskin off and the skin on the shaft ended up "degloving" from the fascia underneath. A urologist had to come in... Read More

    I think circumcition = child abuse.
    I think that it is a very strong statement saying that I abused my child because I chose to have him circumcised. And that is exactly what you are saying.

    It's not a comparative statement; it's an absolute statement about how high each group self reports their levels of sexual pleasure.

    It would be if parents decided to have their kids ears pinned back just because they happen to have a set of ears that might grow to stick out in the future and cause them to be bullied.


    Personally I think circumcition = child abuse.
    Good thing you highlighted "personally". It's not child abuse or it would be ILLEGAL!

    According to your profile...you live in Finland. I am sure that our cultures think about circumcisions in different ways. My son is circumcised and all my future ones will be too. As a woman...an uncircumcised penis disgusts me. No offense to anyone! Have you ever perform peri care on one of these patients who neglect to clean it themselves!!!!! YUCK! WAY worse than circed!!

    Isn't saying an uncircumcised penis disgusts you very similar to what the previous poster said that in his/her OPINION circumcision is child abuse?

    I don't understand women who say it is disgusting. I guess it's all about what you are used to. I never saw the uncircumcised variety till I met my husband but I wasn't disgusted I was interested as to the differences/how it worked, etc. All males are born with foreskins. If they are not, it is considered a birth defect (aposthia).

    As for your comment about peri care, well I've seen a lot of disgusting things in the hospital that don't really have any relevance to my life and I guess this is one of them. I've been with my husband nine years now and I've never seen any big differences in hygiene and believe me, he does nothing special to it, just showers once a day.

    Yes, they are both opinions.

    I understand both views as being a personal preference. Granted, penises are not the prettiest things to look at, but I like them circ'ed. Just my personal preference.

    I have been with one uncirced man. He was very neat and clean in appearance...except for one thing! I think that may have further shaped my view on it mostly. I have definitely seen way worse things than the peri care of an uncirced man LOL! I work in oncology, so we see stuff nightmares are made of.

    I think we all have our opinions. I personally think a circed penis is disgusting. Always staring at you. But my husband is circed and I love him anyway. And our sex life is okay. Of course, every man is convinced that he would be bigger if he was (or wasn't) circed. My boys aren't, a decision which was strongly influenced by my years in Europe. Appearances become less important when you love someone and everyone has different likes. Do I agree with RIC -- No. Is it my business if you circ your sons -- again no. As long as I don't have to assist it isn't my business. It may bother me that RIC is legal and supported by insurance in this country but as long as it is to each his own.

    Males with intact foreskin report a much higher level of sexual pleasure. .
    Oh wonderful another way for men to enjoy sex more. Don't they enjoy it too much as it is????

    In MY OPINION no way do I think that the word "disgust" is similar to the word "abuse"! Sorry, I think "child abuse" is a very harsh accusation and should not be used lightly and especially not in this situation!

    I don't think she accused anyone of abuse, just said she personally thought it was abusive. Is this really any different from parents who think spanking is abuse? It's just an opinion. I have said I think it's morally wrong. Does that mean I think parents who circ are immoral? No. It means I wouldn't do it because it doesn't fit with MY moral beliefs.

    I think calling a normal body part disgusting is harsh too, but that doesn't mean someone else has that opinion and it doesn't have to affect me.

    It's also JUST an opinion. Yes, there are others out there who share my same sentiment...I may be alone in this opinion here on this specific thread on this specific board...but not out in the real world. This is definitely not a topic that ever really comes up in social circles anyway.

    I don't understand what is so harsh about stating an opinion that was not directed at any specific person. I even prefaced my post with "no offense". Oh well.

    That's what I'm saying. Your post doesn't offend me, because it's just your PERSONAL opinion. I feel the same way about EinnOgTveir's PERSONAL opinion. I don't see any need to flame people for giving an honest personal opinion to a personal topic.
