Okay, just curious how many of you if having boys are planning on having him circumcised (Sp?). Too lazy to look up proper spelling. Sorry! LOL Anyway, my oldest son is 15 and was not circ., my 2yr old was. However, after reading about how it is done, seen pics, it is scary and I can't see the real benefits of having the procedure performed on such a innocent child who will feel the pain. My problem is this....many years ago it seemed it was more accepted to go uncirc. and then a faze where is was more accepted to be circ. I am not saying I will go with "what everyone else is doing" but what if my son meets a girl who has never seen a uncirc. penis. Like me at age 17, I was a felt awkward. I assumed he wasn't circ. but it looked so strange after having a little brother that was circ. and that to me at least was normal looking cuz I had only seen them that way. It does seem more and more people are choosing to go uncirc. And I am considering this with the new baby. Knowing what my son must have went through during the procedure and how raw and painful it looked afterwards makes my heart ache. I hopes this makes sense. My hubby is uncirc. but he leans to be circ. and I feel like if I show him info online about the procedure he will change his mind, but it's my mind need to make up first. Ya know, my word wil stand! LOL Any opinions?
