Hope this isn't inflammatory to anyone. It's not supposed to be.
Well... Let me start out by saying that I initially wanted my son circumcised, mostly because I didn't want him ostracized by women for looking different. I don't think men don't really care one way or another. But as a women in the US and not having been with an uncirc'd man, I thought it would be just weird for other women, since I had a hard time picturing it myself. I know in other countries, it's standard to be left intact. But in the US and in my age group, it's more rare.
Anyways, after browsing through some websites and learning more about how the intact penis works, I'm pretty sure that I want to leave my son intact and hell it's pretty neat.
All the heated arguements don't really work on me, so it was helpful to visit doctors' sites to read up about this more. I will not watch a video or ask my husband to, as he is even worse than me as far as being reactionary to too much pressure. So I do need to show him some of these websites, but it will be a slow process. If I do otherwise, he will just stop listening to me.
Also I do think there is an issue with circ'd men's pride on this topic. I'm trying to approach this topic carefully, as I think my husband was initially a bit hurt by my spouting off about the sexual benefits of an intact penis. But I'll be treading lightly here, even though this is the main reason for me to not go circ.
As additional resistance to the circ issue for us, my husband has a friend with an intact penis who was very unhappy that his parents chose this for him. I believe he went and got a circ as an adult. But I thought I would just mention this, since my husband uses this as fuel for his fire in his arguement for circ.
I will keep trying though.
