You likely know that selfish self-righteous arrogance is one of the most popular religions nowadays.
So, sacrifice is toooooooooooo UN-PC to even be acknowledged as any kind of valid concept.
I'm a 35 y/o male with a lifetime disfiguration as a result of circumcision as a child. My penis is inverted inside my body and as a result have faced a lot of distress emotionally and socially. It has effected my life negativly in so many ways, love life, school to where I missed years worth of school because i was ashamed of my disfigurment to avoid manditory showering with my peers.
James Allen argued that circumcision came into existence as a preventive of parasitic infections such as schistosomiasis,16 while (Sir) John Bland-Sutton believed that since ‘a long foreskin is a recognised hindrance to convenient coitus’ the main purpose of circumcision was to ensure fertility.17
The threat of sand has also been advanced as a justification for the circumcision of normal Western men in the twentieth century. Professor Hutson stated that when Australian soldiers were stationed in the Middle East during the First and Second World Wars ‘the incidence of recurrent balanitis caused by sand under the foreskin reached ‘epidemic’ proportions, leading to large numbers of soldiers requiring circumcision.’1

Being a circumcised male, I don't see it as barbaric at all! Personally, I'm glad I am. I don't carry any torment or bad memories of the procedure at all. I fail to see what all the fuss is about.
A couple of my mates had to be circumcised when they were in their early twenties because certain things can go terribly wrong down there that require the procedure - and I can assure you that it's far worse to have it done later in life.
It's also easier to maintain a hygienic regime and I haven't met a female (in my personal experience) that doesn't appreciate it. It certainly doesn't hinder sexual performance! *wink-wink*
I remember reading somewhere that circumcision was originally conceived for men that lived in hot climates such as the desert - and also helped protect males against infections and irritations brought about by sand under the foreskin.
Personally, I think a circumcised penis has a better aesthetic - but that's just my humble opinion.
""These, then, are the human genitals. Considering their great delicacy, complexity and sensitivity,
one might imagine that an intelligent species like man would leave them alone. Sadly, this has
never been the case. For thousands of years, in many different cultures, the genitals have fallen
victim to an amazing variety of mutilations and restrictions. For organs that are capable of giving
us an immense amount of pleasure, they have been given an inordinate amount of pain."
