It is the removal of the foreskin
. Some facts are: Not only are male circumcision rates in USA at 90-95% but other countries have even better numbers: all Polynesian Islands; the Philippines; South Korea; some African tribes; Israel and all Jewish conclaves around the world; all Muslim countries. The latter two are at 99.999%
When the foreskin is removed, the nerves in the shaft that ended in the foreskin grow new endings in the whole shaft. The result is a penile shaft
that is more erotic
Isn't there a lot of pain, when circumcised? Doctors now use creams or a shot to the penile nerve to deaden the nerves. There is no pain
and no screaming. My two infant younger brothers slept through it all. Adolescent and adult males usually have a general anesthesia.
Is male circumcision a mutilation
? No. Just look up the word in a good dictionary. It is a minor form of cosmetic surgery. It really makes the penis look better.
Are there any good health
reasons for circumcision? Yes, there are. A first line of defense against infections such as AIDS/HIV and various sexual diseases. In the infant, a preventive for kidney diseases. Simplified hygiene
. Good sex. The glans really remains soft.
A conversation with my roommate at the university.
persons had come to the campus today.
"What do you think of their point of view?"
"I don't think they know what they are talking about. It is really none of their business, being cut or intact."
"With them the foreskin seems to be a new religious symbol. I think that it may be only another fetish
"You really like your circumcision, don't you."
"As you can see I am grateful to my parents for having it done."
"I'll second that. All the males in my extended family have been circumcised as have all the guys here that I have met in the campus locker rooms or in the showers on our floor."
