http://youtu.be/L0JXH_33mbU   "A truly unique and wonderful individual, longtime intactivist Van Lewis passed away a few hours ago.   I cannot express in words how fortunate I feel the movement and the world were to be graced by his presence and humor.   Also, I feel blessed that I was able to count Van as a beloved friend for many precious years. A remembrance of Van will appear in the next issue of our newsletter.  We would welcome anyone who wants to write...
It sounds like you have a good one. Even still, you have to always be on guard.
I believe there is such a survey around somewhere, the later question at least, I'll try and look for it. It may be a few days though.

Well, can we see what you have?
Sounds just fine to me. It's really common for intact boys to play like that when they discover this wonderful new trick. He should be fine and I wouldn't worry too much about it, for either boy.    
You're going to find a lot of interesting opinions on how to handle your situation. Some people feel they need to end relationships with those who circumcised after being given the information, as in your case; other don't. Of course there are in between courses and sometimes people decide how to handle it based on who it as, family vs friend vs acquaintance.
