Circumcised vs Un-Circumcised...Page 11 of 37    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37)
Could someone explain to me how being circumcised reduces your chance of getting HIV? I know some studies have said that about Africa, but a problem I find in the study is why they only mention Africa. Why not the USA or Europe were HIV isn't as common and a culture/environment that we can actually relate to.

The only big difference between the two is that one is cut and the other is not and, that's all. Think about it, how would a piece of skin cut at birth affect your health? Women do not find one more/less attractive than the other... well at least ALL the women I've know. Sure some may prefer a circumcised man but I don't suspect a woman would be turned off by it.

When I had my son and was debating wither or not to have him circumcised, my wife and I thought that getting him circumcised gave him no benefit whatsoever so, we didn't.

Who cares about a fireman's hat, anyway? What counts is how close he can get to the fire when he rolls out his hose.

Circumcised vs Un-Circumcised...

I think by this point the debate no longer really as a whole lot to do with the foreskin or circumcision at all really. Perhaps it never really did. It's too late for me to go digging for resources to cite so if anyone should chose to tear me up about this that is within their right.

As far as the cut vs. uncut back and forth banter, it really is just about a totally subjective sense of superiority. Others have compared it to who's is longer, and I agree. Is this surprising? No, not really, it's what males tend to do and frankly if you're old enough to post here very few males will be changing the circumstances surrounding their foreskins in the near future, so it boils down to simply not wanting to hear you're "inferior" because nothing can really be done to change one's circumstances at this point without a fair amount of effort.

Where it concerns parents, medical research, hygiene concerns or any other reason stated previous doesn't really matter. Unless there is a procedure that makes one totally immune to infection, disease and abnormal odor (we're mammals, we're supposed to give off certain scents) it is still up to the child to to decide who they will have sex with, and what risks they will take. Even if circumcision reduced the chance to get HIV by 99.9%, if the guy has a habit of sleeping with HIV positive partners, eventually he WILL contract it, or if he's infected, spread it.

There are reasons to get the foreskin removed when necessary, and there are reasons to leave it intact unless needed. Problems can be dealt with as they arise. A far better investment in time and money would be to teach the guy to have a some common sense, decency and responsibility. That will in the long run prove far more effective at protecting AND pleasing himself and any potential partners.

For the women commenting; preferences are fine and are to be wholly expected. Everyone has them. Being judgmental is not fine. Deciding what is best done with a piece of human anatomy you have no direct experience with (ie you have the female version, not male) is not your right, and this swings both ways. Both men and women need to learn this.

I don't care what the reasons are for picking sides, the real crime here isn't that the act is barbaric, or that so and so says circumcision is great for these whatever reasons, it's the close-mindedness of so many (many, not everyone). This is just going to keep going back and forth (not just on the forums) until people start standing on the middle ground instead of just the extremes.

Uncut is gross IMO. The idea of performing oral sex on a cheesy foreskin is vomit inducing! Not only is it visually unappealing, it puts you at higher risk for contracting STDs including HIV. Why risk it???

^^^^ You should try dating people that bathe.....it makes a big difference!

Foreskin or not, was never anything I cared one way or another about. All I ever wanted was an extra 12-14 inches so I could slap stupid people upside the head with it.

It's common sense, you'd know if you had a penis. If I pullback my foreskin for longer than 20 seconds it begins to get dry. Imagine pulling your bottom lip down and exposing it to air for several minutes.

This is simple fact that the foreskin sustains moisture and that removing it can cause callusing etc.


Wow! Uninformed much?!?!?!?!

do many people actually give 'handjobs' past 9th grade? why a hand when a luscious mouth or pvssy is available?

with a mouth or a nice wet pvssy no lube is required (or wanted)

I agree, bathing is essential! However, a foreskin traps smegma (aka cheese) which begins to stink like hot garbage as it is broken down by bacteria that thrives on the moisture! You'd have to wash with antibacterial soap each time you urinate (or 8-10x daily) to properly remove debris at the rate it is produced. A cut penis eliminates this problem as the moist mucosa that produces excess smegma is no longer there.

plus, the majority of women will likely concur, a circumcized penis is much more appealing than a shriveled elephant trunk.

Ma'am, with all due respect, but with your comments, you have got to start being more selective with whom you date. Not all men who are uncircumcised have smegma build ups that you seem to have experienced, nor do they all look like shriveled elephant trunks.

Following your logic, do you douche after you urinate?

Listen, anybody can have a funky anything, but that's not my point here. My point is that it is easier to keep a circumsized penis clean(er) than an uncircumcized, and that is the truth. This isn't battle of the sexes, so simmer down. Of course women produce smegma, albiet not as much as men do (as the clitoris is a fraction of the size of the head of the penis) but women must wash under the prepuce also. Women also do not urinate out of the clitoris, rather the urethra which is further down. I don't see what the vagina's proximity to the anus has to do with anything, but sure. As for vaginal discharge, it comes from the VAGINA, not the clitoris and it is quite different from smegma. Female genetalia can't accurately be compared to that of a males because of anatomical differences.

Someone mentioned female circumcision on here... That really is mutilation... The entire clitoris is usually removed using a blade or glass outside of hospital setting. It is the equivalent of cutting off the entire glans. Let's not compare apples to rocks.

I agree with forumrum whole-heartedly! My family is from Africa (Nigeria, the most populous nation on the continent) and I can tell you that circumcision is norm. Countries the world over with sizeable Catholic populations circumcize their children.. Same goes for the majority of the world that follow Abrahamic religions.. Your argument does not hold water IMO...

She said a cut penis "looks prettier" but I indicated that's just a perception and she agrees that is certainly the case.


yes, preference for looks is always 'just a perception'.

it's also 'just a perception' that Megan Fox or Angelina Jolie or that the latest Playboy Playmate/Penthouse Pet of the Month are more attractive than Susan Boyle..cultural biases..those biases are still real to the people in that culture, though

It is harmful in the most obvious sense that it removes the part that protects the head of the penis from the outer environment. The head is extremely sensitive and will develop layers of skin to cope with this, up to around 13 extra layers, removing about 3/4 or your potential ability to feel sensation. Not to mention the frenulum and all its nerves are removed and thrown away.

Your obsession with this topic was a wee bit (foreskin pun intended) cute/interesting for about 10 pages. Now? Not so much. You (you personally) can not possibly know what any penis in the world does or does not feel unless you are the owner and operator of that penis. What another penis feels compared to what your penis feels will forever be a mystery to you. So why not just admit you don't know what feels good/appropriate/sensitive/right/wrong/etc/etc. to all the other penises in the world. We all get it, you don't agree with circumcision. OK!!! You've been validated. Thanks for the input.

Yes, completely uninformed from the diatribe you're spewing. I just choose not to care enough about what you have to say to. To think that you know what other men feel? That your belief is the final answer? Nah, I'll just read for the laughs!

^^^^my goodness bilby, I sure hope you experienced everything a foreskin has to offer before you served Christmas dinner to the piranhas. Did your girlfriend ever blow it up like a balloon?......cool as hell..looks just like a gourd.

Oh goodness, Kayliecats boyfriend is in for a new surprise....I sure hope she doesn't inflate it too far and cause a blow out.

I had to get done a few years ago, so can speak on both sides. I would rather have stayed uncut, every thing felt much more sensetive and pleasurable. Now cut, it has become less sensetive. The infection side of things is just a myth. Kids normally have 2-3 baths or showers a week, that is plenty, and as they get older, usually shower more often. There must be something wrong to get an infection. The ladies have to make their own mind up to what they like better.

Who cares about a little skin?....they should have cut the whole damn thing off at birth....would have saved me about a million and half in divorce settlements and attorney fees. I don't hear any eunuchs complaining.
