All I meant was that I thought my original statement made it sound like I thought that girls would somehow see my penis when I was young and still a virgin and make fun of me. Whereas what I really meant was that when I was young, before I had actually had sex, I wasn't sure what to expect when I did start being sexually active. I probably (I don't recall specifically) had some concern that once I started being naked with girls, they would think the intactness was weird. But then it never actually turned out that way. Does that make sense now?

BTW it's interesting to ponder this idea of an erect intact penis looking circ'd! I hadn't realised I was so unusual in this respect.

Got it now.

Yeah. Why would a scar and amputated body part be more beautiful?

That's the power of cultural brainwashing.

how many guys would appreciate being told their penis is pretty? it reminds of that scene in how to lose a guy in 10 days. i think she names his penis princess sohpie or something.

son- mom why was i circumcised?
mom- so you would have a pretty penis.
son- never ever ever refer to my penis ever again i already need enough therapy.

That's for sure. Personally, when I see circ'd penises, I cringe.

I'd have my mother committed.

I don't cringe looking at myself! But I do wish it was natural.

lol...Jenny McCarthy actually used the phrase in her 2nd book "Baby Laughs." I used to despise her for writing about how she wouldn't even try to breastfeed and how she circumcised her son because she wanted him to have a "pretty penis."

I've since forgiven her because of the work she's done in autism and vaccine risk awareness.

I read that. It was extremely disturbing that she thought it was humorous.

Scars just aren't pretty. And the dried out glans does not look healthy or well vascularized when compared to an intact male.

I don't think it looks bad. Thankfully, since I got circumcised later on in life, it is not dried out like that, but I have seen what you are talking about. And the scars are not aesthetically pleasing....

I just don't think we should be using "pretty" to describe a penis in the first place. It is a teensy bit gross too, that a mother wants her son's penis to match her preferences.

Americans have been culturally brainwashed to think it's normal. But the good news is that the defintion of "normal" changes as people change.
