The only problem with that analogy is that implants are not likely to remove or limit the functionality of something (though there is the possibility that it could decrease nipple sensitivity or, taken to the extreme, result in damage to their back). I do agree, though, with your central point: we need not modify our body to be beautiful people.

Frankly, I'm not sure I'm missing out on anything if a woman were superficial enough to turn me down because of my uncircumcised penis.

Very true. I was referring to the asthetic angle more than anything else.

We both know that you & I are perfect male specimens anyway so this is all pure speculation.

I really can't imagine experiencing any more sexual pleasure than I currently do. I think I'd explode. lol

And, interestingly, I've never heard the term "anteater" used before..... always aardvark. Helmets and Aardvarks.

Of course not.

Sure, there are some men who DO prefer that... but it's by no means the norm.

Same with "chopped weiners" I would think.
Pretty good analogy, I think.

And... not to give TMI... but not all uncircumsized fellas are alike. Y'know?

For the most part, girls probably wont even notice. Regular sex? You wont notice a difference. It's only really when...um... giving it a kiss... that some girls even realize a guy is uncut.

(Off-topic - every time anyone refers to it as "uncut" I always wanna say "uncut and commercial free". Weird.)

I decided (because the girlfriend couldn't decide) not to circumcize my son and I'm both proud of my decision and ashamed that I even had to think about it, all at the same time.

This is a barbaric, ridiculous procedure which is based on ridiculous bullshit.

That said, I myself am sliced and diced (you're all welcome). I do know that, with my generation, the uncut are subject to giggles and ew's, but a quick check of the recent stats shows that the cut will be the new uncut, when it comes to those giggles and ew's.

Thank GOD.

Who voted yes?

evaluating circumcision as barbarism is very biased opinion and not fair..
this is not just a superstition or religious ritual..religions care about health so this is why it seems like that..

circumcision are more important as medical..it decreases urinary tract infection 15-20 times..it is an important factor in preventing the infection of sexually transmitted diseases such as aids..it decreases the penile cancer risk..sexual partners of circumcised men have lesser cervical cancer risk..

and these have nothing to do with soap and water or good looking..it is all about health..childs cannot be aware of that and parents always want the best for their children..

so i vote for it should be legal..

also it is not so painful..i was just starting school when i was circumcised..i didnt feel pain but i was so frightened..so if you do it, do it when your boy is a baby..

WRONG

Scroll back and read the information from the Canadian Pediatric Society that I posted. The only doctors who would advocate circumcision are dumbasses who are not up to speed on the current medical literature. Some old doctors are stubborn and don't update their education. The Canadian Pediatric Society made an official statement proclaiming that they do NOT recommend circumcision and their organization considers it a NON-therapeutic procedure.

Circumcision is bullshit. The general public just hasn't caught up with the state of the current medical/scientific information, which is based on empirical data and peer reviewed studies, rather than moral prudity and speculation that was rampant during the 20th century.

I know how to settle the debate. Ladies which feels better; circumcised or not?

It should be legal, parents choice.

I've asked a lot of girls about this in high school and most em said circumsized looks better but it wouldnt matter if they really liked the dude.

Yo dogg...have you read any of the rest of the thread yet?

Why do the parents get to make that permanent choice for their children? Why aren't the child's rights to full sexual function protected?

Yo son I answered the question. Why do the parents get to make the decision? 'Cause they have the option and it's legal.

But no one is asking if it is legal (it obviously is); we're asking if it should be legal.

So would it be alright to cut off a finger or two as soon as they came out of the womb?

Of course not. You're comparing a finger to foreskin.

Well here are the reasons you said removing the foreskin was right:

1. It's the parent's decision,
2. The kid won't miss something they never had anyways.

Doesn't a finger fit those reasons just as well as a foreskin?
