beep, one of the aspects that i haven't seen discussed to a great extent in the questions you have posed or the answers people have given is the structure, function, and purpose of the foreskin.
the debate is often framed as if the pros and cons of circumcision are disease prevention/hygiene on one side and the short-term risks of the procedure itself on the other (pain, bleeding, scarring, infection, meatal stenosis, adhesions, buried penis, lower pain threshold, death, etc.).
very rarely do people stop to consider what exactly the foreskin is and what it does, and how the penis is altered in structure and function when it is circumcised. loss of the foreskin is the complication that occurs in circumcision 100% of the time. yet very few people focus on the long-term effects on sexuality and sexual functioning of the loss of the foreskin.
although your husband is intact, he (like many intact men) may be only vaguely aware of the foreskin's structure and function.
to put it in perspective, one of the main reasons most westerners are horrified by female circumcision is that we are aware of the importance of the female prepuce and clitoris (i.e. the female foreskin and clitoris) to full female sexual functioning. that is why westerners do not accept any justification (religious, cultural, health, etc.) for female circumcision. to put it in personal terms, it's hard to imagine you researching circumcision (removal of the clitoral hood) for yourself or your daughter, precisely because you are presumably aware of the benefits of fully intact, functioning genitals.
and yet the male foreskin is much, much larger in terms of area-- and has more nerve endings -- than the female foreskin. so why do people not consider its loss when considering the pros and cons of circumcision?
i commend these studies to your attention (all peer-reviewed and published in the British Journal of Urology):http://www.cirp.org/library/anatomy/sorrells_2007/http://www.cirp.org/library/anatomy/cold-taylor/http://www.cirp.org/library/anatomy/taylor/
This page explains the ridged band based on the research of Taylor et al. (a page I highly recommend your dh read before he makes any decision to get circed):http://research.cirp.org
This page summarizes some of the sexual problems that may occur as a result of circumcision:http://www.cirp.org/library/sex_function/
Finally, I'll end this post with one more thing:
Circumcision is not a "parenting" decision. It is a decision parents make for children, but it has nothing to do with "parenting."
