It's the removal of the foreskin. It's not a "sadistic rite," insanity, or a barbaric act. It's a surgical procedure that parents may choose to have their boys undergo for the best interests of the child, or at the recommendation of a doctor.
Circumcision eliminates problems with retracting the foreskin and inflammation of the foreskin. It also may reduce the risk of penile cancer and urinary tract infections. Aside from that, many people don't consider a drooping hunk of skin at the end of a sex organ to be very attractive.

Hygiene is an issue with circumcision. You can see why the hygiene argument might have a basis in circumcision, since the foreskin acts as a storage unit for nasty substances. It doesn't take long for bacteria to multiply and become great in number, and for build-ups to happen. See smegma.

Label on a penis: Not circumcised. Wash before and after sex, masturbation, or public display.

Come on, people. Circumcision's a personal point of view. Be happy with what you have. The only "damage" here is that caused by people that tell circumcised males that they _are_ damaged or "mutilated!"

Mutilation: the destruction of something to where it is not nearly what it was or how it used to perform. Well, if circumcision is sexual mutilation, how come America (with the majority of males circumcised) are happy people -- many with children?

When a male is born, his penis is wearing a little turtleneck. Circumcision is the process of pulling the "collar" up and snipping it right off, so that it wears less like a turtleneck and more like a comfortable T-shirt. Also aids in taking a piss because one won't piss all over oneself, or someone at an adjacent urinal.
The doctor took little johnny to the room for his circumcision.

The controversial surgical procedure performed on baby boys which, upon becoming men, makes the penis very very appealing to women. Most women like a large circumcised penis. It is much more appealing to look at and play with. The man will never have memory of being circumcised so why not stop dwelling on the act of the surgery. Give the girlies what they want and a reason to want to pleasure you more.
Mary: Are you gonna go home with him tonight???

Linda: Yeah, but if he hasn't had a circumcision, I'm bailing out.

The act of removing a male's foreskin. Controversial for obvious reasons. There are cons such as exposing the usually covered part of the penis to the harsh world, but there are many health benefits such as a decreased chance of getting HIV, Cervical cancer, or Siphilis.

Originally it was only used ceremonially in Jewish communities, and later in the Muslim faith. Today the practice is common in the United States as a whole, Christian, Jew, Mulsim, or whatever.
Person in locker room: Dude! What's wrong with your dick!?
Jew: I had a circumcision
Person: Ew... I heard it makes Sex not feel as good.
Jew: Well I only was uncircumcised for 8 days so I can't really say anything about that.

It is the procedure of cutting foreskin either in part or in total.
Usually carried out for religious, medical or social reasons. All Muslim and Jewish males are expected to be circumcised to comply with their religious requirements. Several medical conditions such as phimosis warrant circumcision. It is also carried out widely in Americas and parts of Asia and Africa for social reasons. Circumcision is also popular among people seeking greater sexual aesthetics and increased sexual stimuli and excitement.
Mohammed is seven years old and ready for circumcision.

Circumcision enhanced Jim's seuxual pleasures.

Doctors recommended circumcision to treat my friend's phimosis.

A procedure done to male infants in which the foreskin is cut off. It is usually done either for religious reasons (done by Jews) or for hygiene reasons. Believe it or not, Circumcision is not cutting off the entire penis, but merely the outer layer of foreskin. Many assholes believe Jews are bad people because they do this but it has no negative effects. Pleasure in intercourse is not increased or decreased, and the ability to produce children is also not affected. What? You thought it meant you couldn't have children. Idiot, how do you think Jewish babies are born? Honestly. The only real effect that circumcision has is better hygiene and less of a chance getting varied penal diseases.
The main reason many people believe circumcision is bad is because of varied anti-Semitic reasons, as well as the fact that many men are sensitive to cutting down there.
"I'm Jewish, so I was circumcised."
"Is circumcision like cutting off a girl's nipples?"
NO, you idiot. If you cut off a girl's nipples she would have no way to nurse her children and many other health problems. The foreskin has no use but nipples do.
