I've seen some intact men on here write that a foreskin is a great "shallow woman filter"...meaning that if she's going to leave him for the way his penis looks, then she wasn't worth keeping.
I've also heard that many women prefer intact men (I've only ever been with dh who is circed, so I have no basis for comparison).
I would also say that if it's bugging him by the time he's old enough for girls to be looking at his penis so closely, HE can choose have it done then with proper anesthesia (and not at a time when he'll have an open wound in a diaper!!). It's HIS body, it should be HIS choice...not anyone elses.
AND, I would say that since the circ rate is dropping in this country, girls are more likely to see both types of penises....I just noticed that you live in CA...the circ rate here is VERY low. Only about 33% of boys in this state are circed, so your son would actually be in the minority if you choose to have him circed.
