It should be up to the parents to decide at the time of birth. The only thing that should be legislated and that MUST be mandatory regardless of what religion and ceremonial religious tradition is wrapped around it, is that it be performed by a medical doctor, and with a local anesthetic administered prior (and given time to work) so that it is absolutely pain free for the baby. To do it any other way and without a local is simply barbaric - and if done THAT way, it SHOULD be illegal.

Foreskin can contain the human papillomavirus -- a sexually transmitted virus that causes cervical cancer in women and can lead to genital warts in both sexes -- according to a small Austrian study that is scheduled to be presented at the annual meeting of the American Urological Association in Washington, D.C., HealthDay/USA Today reports.

Gnu, are you sure you weren't just criticized twice, and you're a little dislexic?

While I don't disbelieve you, I flat out don't understand; I've never heard of anyone being circumcised who didn't come out pretty much like the "after" picture, and I bet not much of anyone else here has, let alone why anyone would cut off some, cut off a little more, and still not arrive at the "after" picture. Whatever the actual reasons, bro, yours is a very unusual if not unique case.

Okay, Sex-Ed 101.

Circumcised compared to uncircumcised.

With the uncircumcised penis, the head of the penis (glans) is generally completely covered. With the circumcised penis, the glans is exposed, but it's wearing a little turtleneck.

In ALL cases, scrupulous personal hygiene is highly recommended. For BOTH genders. [Should go without saying.]

P. S. By the way, so-called "female circumcision" (removal of the clitoris) is a totally different horror show!

Richard, hope this isn't classed as 'too much information', but there are many different types of circumcision. One type is merely a 'trim', and there is still enough skin left to retract and wash. A quite radical circumcision is often performed in Africa, which involves complete removal of ALL the foreskin and a razor removal even of the ring of tissue which is left, (rather like sharpening a pencil with a knife). This is often done at age ten, without aneasthetic and is incredibly painful for days. Another type (eg Masai) leaves a long 'tag' of the foreskin hanging on a thin strip of skin. This is supposed to give much pleasure to women. There is some limited evidence that circumcision reduces the transference of the HIV virus, but this information is dangerous, as it encourages people not to bother with a condom. Also, Jewish women do not often contract cervical cancer, as a circumcised penis does not induce this condition. Nuns never get cervical cancer! But I still think the operation should only be performed on consenting adults.

"the uncircumcised penis can be a host for all kinds of infectious horrors."

Okay... I have a question. Does the circumcised dick foreskin separate from the dick ("peel back", so to speak) at an earlier age than the uncircumcised dick foreskin?

And, is the uncircumcised dick foreskin never able to be peeled back to allow male hygiene? Can't an uncircumsized dick be washed? I wash my dick every day. Sometimes twice a day as the little guy seems to like it. At least, that's what he tells me... in his own way.

GUEST,henryetta has a valid point. I have heard that before, and it's not just someone's cockamamie idea. Unless a guy is fairly scrupulous in his personal hygiene, the uncircumcised penis can be a host for all kinds of infectious horrors.

####

On a lighter note:   two men in a public men's room standing in front of adjacent urinals. One man finishes up, then goes to the wash basin, uses the soap dispenser, then washes his hands. The other man just zips up and heads for the door.

The man at the wash basin says, "At Harvard, they teach us to wash our hands after urinating."

As he goes out the door, the other man responds, "At Yale, they teach us not to urinate on our hands!"

A fellow walking down the street notices that his watch is way off. It's been giving him problems lately, and he intends to take it in for repair, but he keeps forgetting about it. But serendipity seems to be at work. He discovers himself standing in front of a small shop and it has watches and clocks in the show window.

He goes inside. Behind the counter sits an elderly gentleman with glasses and a long beard. The elderly man looks up from his book and says, "Yes?"

The fellow takes off his watch and says, "My watch is not keeping very good time lately. I'd like to have it repaired."

The elderly gentleman says, "I'm sorry, but I don't repair timepieces. I'm a mohel."

"A mohel? I'm sorry, but what is a mohel?"

"A mohel performs circumcisions," says the old gentleman.

"But—   I thought this was a watch repair shop. I mean, if you don't repair watches and clocks, then why do you have all those watches and clocks in your show window?"

"So . . . what would you put in the window?"

Eliza... "removal is of course necessary, under anaesthetic."

I should hope so.

When I had the second (see above), just as I was being knocked out, I said, "Nothing off the top, just a little trim around the sides." A nurse said, "No, you want it off the top and added to the sides." I knew her voice, but all I could see was her eyes as I went under and I couldn't figure out who she really was. I asked a certain lass later on if it was her and she said she could not say one way or the other due to confidentiallity... but that if I had such a surgery my sex life was gonna be far better.

A medical or "spiritual" opinion?

Or is that too personal or medical?

Richard-

"I was under the impression that it was fairly often done for medical/hygenic reasons."

Not since soap and water were invented. I suppose in some third world countries where clean water is not readily available, the operation, if performed by licensed medical practitioners, would be justified.

No, the practice seems more based on traditional religious belief or out-dated medical practice.

Now in some cases the size of the foreskin is excessive and an operation might be called for, as documented in this old song about a "jolly tinker" having "forty yards of foreskin hanging down below his knees."

Foreskins used to be collected as a way to count enemy dead. The whole penis was also used. I don't know what they did with them after they were counted. Ancient Celts went into battle naked, both men and women, and this is where the phrase "Stand up and be counted!" came from. Sometimes two champions would come forth and settle the matter with a cockfight.

I was taking a quick look online about this, so evidently circumcision was a routine operation in the US during the fifties (I always assumed it to be an exclusively religious thing). I don't think that's the case anywhere else in the world.

Apparently it initially became popular in the US as a means of inhibiting the corrupting dangers of "self abuse" or masturbation in young boys, but later gained currency as a means to prevent all kinds of supposed health problems from epilepsy to bed-wetting!

And foot binding (although that isn't done much anymore)."

My guess is that if you tried flattening your babies head in the US today, or binding your daughter's feet, you would quickly discover that you probably don't need extra laws banning them. As for African practices, FGM is not legal in the UK.
