well, my grandma used to tell me how many little boys that are 6, 7, 8 years old (when they are old enough to bathe themselves), that come into the er with horrible penis infections from bacteria getting trapped under the foreskin.
kids can't remember to clean out their belly button or wash behind their ears, so very few little boys would remember to retract the foreskin and clean that too.
and this might be tmi, i would never have sex with a guy that wasn't circumcised...it just looks too funny to me.
this is a nursing board. i don't think there is tmi. lol!
well, i guess an infection would remind said child to clean well.
i have heard the comment that uncircumcised men look funny. well, you wouldn't think that if no men were circumcised
, correct? an intact male would look like every other intact male.
as for the medical arguments, they do not warrent circumcision. while it is suspected that there are certain health benefits, they are so small it does not warrent this procedure. females have similar problems - yeast and/or bladder infections of various sorts, yet they are left intact.
my belief is that this is how we are born, the skin is there for a reason (i'll not bore you with the details) and should be left as it is.
i have read various accounts of anywhere from 75%-82% (much much lower in the us) of the world's men being intact. they show no gross diseases or other complications.
i suppose this really isn't even the topic of this thread. i would just strongly encourage anyone to research the topic before making a decision. (i have strong feelings on the subject as well - is it obvious?)
