Well there is medical reasons for it. If you don't get circumcised it can lead to complications later on and end up having to doing it anyways.
Again circumcision does not reduce pleasure. The foreskin is there to protect the penis and rolls back when harden and has nothing to do with intercourse.
Hygiene is also easier to maintain compared to uncircumcised penis, which means you don't have to worry about a little boys tackle getting infected because a dirty foreskin. You will say its not hard to keep up on washing but try telling that to little kid.

Jeez people want to argue about this when there are much more important things in the world.
Uncirced units look uglier to most girls in the modern world (go ahead and ask them if you dont believe me) they smell worse, and are definitely more prone to yeast and urinary tract infections.
Hard to say about the sensitivity, it still feels great to me so no problems there. Id imagine having it done later it life would decrease sensitivity.
And a lot of people like to say "its so painful look at the baby just cry away!" well... I sure dont remember getting it done and I guarantee not a single one of you remember it getting done at birth either, and id prefer it that way.
So I dont know about all of you but im thankful my parents decided to have it done for me.

You should probably do the same and not force your opinion on anyone else for something you have not experienced or understand.

www.circumstitions.com...edit on 6/1010/11 by Elentarri because: link issue
most men in the world and the great majority of men in Europe, Scandinavia, Central and South America and Asia are not circumcised?
"medical" infant circumcision was introduced to prevent masturbation?
until a few decades ago, female genital cutting was promoted in the western world for many of the same reasons as male circumcision?
infant circumcision was fashionable in the English-speaking world 50 years ago but is now rare (except in the US)?
babies are strapped down to be circumcised?
circumcision with a PlastiBellTM does involve cutting?
before the foreskin can be cut (or crushed) off, it must be torn away from the glans?
circumcision removes 50% of the skin of the penis?
circumcision removes the most sensitve part of the penis?
no national medical association anywhere in the world supports non-therapeutic neonatal circumcision (male or female) on medical grounds?
Describing the act of circumcision as abuse or mutilation is clearly hyperbole.
I propose that this is an emotional topic, not immediately pertinent to more pressing items in the pantheon of demons haunting the human condition.
