|My honey is still on the fence though because he has a friend in medical school who says there's issues with guys who are intact. Something about higher stds and infections.
I can think of several ways to get around that issue:
Teach him not to sleep around
Teach him to wear a condom
Teach him to only sleep with trusted partners who have been tested for STDs.
Which I hope you're planning to do anyway.
It seems a bit harsh to cut off part of his penis on the grounds that he might
be sexually irresponsible when he's a teenager. When he turns 13 (or whatever age), of course, you could explain the situation to him: "Son, some studies show that if you cut off the most sensitive parts of your penis, you might be able to have sex with more women before you contract HIV. There are also conflicting studies, and you should also know that you will gradually lose penile sensation as your glans keratinises, you will be more likely to cause pain and chafing to your female partners, you won't have the gliding action of your foreskin any more, and if you happen to be gay there won't be any protective effect anyway. Oh, and it'll hurt like hell, and if the doctor removes too much foreskin you might experience painful erections for the rest of your life. What do you think?"
If you suspect he'd say "No thanks", there's your answer. If he isn't likely to go for it as an informed
adult, don't do it to him when he's too helpless to resist.
Also, circing can interfere with establishing a breastfeeding relationship, and causes long-term changes in the pain response of newborns. One study showed that babies who had been circed were more upset and seemed to be in more pain months later during vaccinations. That's a pretty scary thing to mull over - they don't "remember", but it changes the way they think about pain on at least a semi-long-term basis.
