The Sanctity of Foreskin

Our official position on circumcision - it's medically unnecessary and genital mutilation. That's not to say that we haven't had wonderful love affairs with circumcised men. We love all penises.

I think sexually educated

I think sexually educated Americans are really starting to question this practice. Hopefully in a few generations it will be considered cruel unless medically necessary. On the bright side maybe more Americans will end up with a more eroticized view of the foreskin and it will make sex with an uncut man even hotter. A sort of up side to being a foreskin deprived nation. Great work PhD and JD.

Palesa you hit the nail on the head

I suspect that the advantage of a man's being uncut is more and more discussed among American women under 40 years of age, so much so that nearly all gentile couples will cease doing it within 30 years. As for foreskin making sex with a man hotter, that's already the case for most sexually sophisticated women, and has been the case among gay men for decades. Here Betty was ahead of the curve by 30 years or more. BTW, Palesa, there are foreskin deprived women. Some remember fondly a fling with an intact dude in their past. Others are simply dying of curiosity after seeing images of foreskin on the internet.

current partner. I was worried at first, but only because I was scared
I would hurt him or something. So I went online and did tons of
research, and I also asked him to show me what he likes. After all my
research I am VERY against circumcision. I had no idea how horrible it
is. :("

Would it not only take

Would it not only take someone suing the nurse/doctor who preformed this "mutillation" on them, or even perhaps suing their parents themselves for this trend/custom/misinformed "correction" to suddenly dissapate?

[= x-large]Still having my foreskin is great.  I had on ex who
thought I have it
removed.  The other women never said anything about it.  What I like
about that it makes solo play so good.  I know many cultures see the
foreskin as female trait so want to cut if off.  Since both men and
women
have different levels of the same hormones I'm not mad at all.  In the
womb both men and women were same until we as men our Y sends first
flood of hormones.[/]

Thank you SO MUCH for standing up for our baby boys!

Betty and Carlin, Thank you SO MUCH for writing about this truly important issue.

Circumcision is the removal of healthy, sensitive, functional, erogenous genital tissue from someone who cannot give informed consent. The decision to remove normal, healthy body parts should only be made by someone capable of understanding the risks... for their OWN body. The foreskin contains thousands and thousands of highly specialized nerve endings, many like those found in the fingertips and lips!

As you were explaining, the foreskin also has sexual function, primarily in the way it provides a natural lubrication. The main way it does this is through its mobility - that is, the way the skin glides up and down the penis. This natural function of the skin system of the penis actually reduces abrasive friction - essenitally keeping sex wetter, longer.

Of course, as you said, circumcised men are capable of being JUST as good of a lover - as being a good lover has little to do with your penis at all! Nevertheless, when it comes to discussing whether the removal of healthy foreskins from infants is ethical, it is necessary to acknowledge that something of value is lost.

So, thank you Betty and Carlin, for speaking out about this issue - which can be hard to talk about in our culture, but is SO necessary, because the leading reason why it continues is people just don't know the facts!

Medical organizations around the WORLD do not recommend the practice, many explaining that the risks of the procedure itself are already higher than ANY potential benefits.
