So do you support the removal of either from male or female infants without their consent and/or without pain relief?

For hygiene, yes, and with pain relief. If people want to make it mandatory to wait until mid-teens or adulthood (or whenever they decide someone is old enough to decide what to do with their junk) so be it.

Personally, I prefer the look of an circumcised penis. Medical points aside, I find an uncircumcised penis simply unattractive & frankly, kind of ugly in it's flaccid state. If people want to circ for aesthetics willingly, I don't care. I'm still not going to get all up in a parent's business about what they do with their kids' wang, though. That just makes a person a creep.

Is this really some major concern with guys now?

For some it is, yeah. Not super common I don't think.

Either way, even if it's for a relatively small percent of men, it just being an option is great since it wasn't an option when they were newborns.

Way I see it anyways.

True, a form of FGM is to remove the equivalent female labia.
I still don't understand how anyone can not see this, perhaps it is the predominantly US members (no pun intended) who see cutting infants as normal because it is so ingrained in their society.
It's still cutting external male genitalia without consent or reasonable medical argument supporting it.
Most Brit blokes have a penis as they were born with, and we do actually know how to wash it.

It varies. Some guys have more skin than others naturally.

I can't tell you how many times people have been shocked to find out I am uncircumcised despite having seen my penis many times. It looks circumcised when erect. When flaccid it's quite obvious I am not.

So really just depends on the dude. Anyhoot

I think it points to something more major in the recesses of their mind than just "missing" their missing skin. I'm wondering what exactly they're projecting into anger over foreskin. Bad childhoods/relationships? Innate self-esteem issues? This is a really weird thing to go on the warpath about so harshly. There's more to it than "I want skin back down there".

I have a Matt finish as opposed to a Gloss finish, and there is no way I would want to grow anything back.

Well, maybe my hairline, but everything else I don't miss.

Well, when I am dying of cancer, or some anti-biotic resistant microbe, at least I can show-off my new re-grown foreskin...

am I insane or are our priorities a tad askew?

And if a foreskin can be regenerated, why not limbs... or teeth?

Is the calcium the problem (kidding, sort-of)? I guess a foreskin doesn't have a bone... some pun with boner seems apropos but I can't construct it.

ETA and my first memory is of the pain from being circumcised... people say I must be mistaken because we can't remember that far back... uh-huh... but there it is, delusion or not (but I was 14 ...kidding, about being 14- I really do remember the pain- unless it was later and I had some other injury... possible but unknown).

Aesthetically, I'm glad for it... foreskins add to the thing's silly factor... ever see a male Doberman Pincer get excited? Like that... and I am a little wistful that I shall never know the joy of smegma... sniff.





Let's face it, some scientists have priorities, you know, like boners and stuff. LOL They're thinking with their brains. The ones down below, but hey, at least they're trying! LOL I mean, they need to use up that grant money somehow! Notice they didn't focus on burn victims, or any other application that might have been more useful. No, BONERS! That's where the money is at! Why do you think a heart drug became Viagra! Now they're looking at spiders to do that job. Guess why? Yup! Boners my good friend! Longer lasting that Viagra and none of those nasty side effects!

Genetically engineered spider venom to cure ED



Research into the possible use of wandering spider venom arose after a team in Brazil studied the impact of spider bites on the local population back in 2000. They found that among other symptoms, the spider bites sometimes resulted in priapism—erections that last an abnormally long time. Over time other researchers have isolated the chemical involved, PnTx2-6, and used recombinant DNA techniques to produce the protein in caterpillar cells. Now, testing by this latest team of researchers indicates that the protein helps restore erectile function in the tissue of rats. That is a long way from helping humans, of course, but thus far, the research appears promising.



So see my good man, priorities!

Oh quite true. I'm sure there's just an many guys out there who prefer the look of a smaller labia over the, um, well, mammoth curtains some women sport down there. Some even prefer none at all. Everything has it's variety in life, size included.

Regarding the Salamander, its interesting that if it looses a limb, the stump has a negative charge of electrons. Then it regrows the limb. just like the tails of some lizards.If we loose a limb the scar tissue holds a positive charge and we don't regrow said tissue. I noticed a while back that they had an ointment that seemed to regrow parts of thumbs that had been amputated. It was primarily a zinc ointment . Which to my reasoning, would act like a mini battery on the stump, and keep a negative charge on the area that requires the regrowth. So why not attach a capacitor, that hold a load of electrons at one end up against the wound, with a small battery to keep it charged.

They seem to have worked out that bones heel better if they are held in an electrical field. Interesting stuff.




That is actually an interesting idea/theory. I wonder if something like that would work better than what they're attempting to do. It would certainly be unique and worth looking into.

I wonder if this can be applied to grow more! 3.5 feet of foreskin...sometimes I gross myself out...

And if they don't like it, they can just cut it off again!

I'll take mine without please

I always wonder why we don't call it Male Genital Mutilation.


Not even a good comparison, as losing ones foreskin would be akin to a female losing her labia, not clitoris.

The Small Man in the Boat would agree...



Wrong! It would akin to a female losing the so-called "hood" of her clitoris.

I had a girl, so this was never an issue with me. If I had a boy, my ex and I had already decided we were not going to circumcise unless it was medically necessary. Too tight, etc..., We felt it would be our child's choice when they became of age. My ex was circumcised and wished he had been able to make the choice for himself. All his brothers were. I know my youngest brother was, and I think my other brother as well. I used to help change their diapers.

Personally I don't like the curtains you describe but I also do not advocate the cutting of female infants to appease my preference regarding aesthetics.

I already answered you, I said I support it for hygiene. I also said getting all up in other parents' business about what to do with their kid's genitals makes someone a creep. Perhaps swapping creep for perv would be better at making my point here?

The aesthetics are a side effect. And not a bad one.

Sure. It's the parents' choice. I watched my son's circumcision and he didn't even blink or cry and there have been no dire effects. In my experience, I've found that most men don't even think about it one way or another, regardless of if they are or are not circumcized. My personal preference is so strong, in fact, that it's been a deal breaker for me on more than one occasion.
