How old is your intact son?

post #1 of 179
Thread Starter 
I thought it would be interesting to see how old the intact sons of members are. I was looking through some statistics and found them really interesting.

Truthfully, we didn't do anything out of the ordinary when we left our son intact - it's just the 'done thing' where we live. So I know I don't really understand a lot of the issues that US parents face when it comes to pressure to circumcise. We honestly didn't even discuss it (plus the doctors don't do it here) and it wasn't until after my second son was born that I changed from being anti-circ to a 'practising' intactivist.

The majority of males in the UK are intact
The majority of males in Europe are intact
The majority of males under 40 in New Zealand are intact
The majority of males under 20 in Australia are intact
The majority of males in Japan are intact
The majority of males in China are intact
The majority of males under 30 in Canada are intact
And soon the majority of males being born in the US will be intact (if it hasn't been 'reached' already - stats I've seen are just either side of 50%).

My boy will be 2 yo on Thursday!

I'm hoping he'll grow up in the majority - that having an entire penis will be considered normal. As we live in Colorado, I doubt it, but I am hopeful.

Three intact boys here, Cam is 9 and Marshall and Luke are 19 months. I am lucky that in my area, circumcision is the exception, not the norm.

My intact sons are 26 and 18 years old.

Sorry, ladies, the 26 year old is taken. The 18 year old isn't, but he's a bit immature.

DS#2 is intact and 7 weeks old!

Sadly in my area circ rates are high. I have only met one other mother of an intact son and she is our LLL leader (very crunchy). Sadly as well, my DSs are the only intact penis' I have ever seem and I grew up in CA and babysat a lot.

My intact little guy is 13 months.

He was born in TX, which is somewhat pro-circ, but we're now in OH, which is a VERY high-circ area. I only know of one other mom with an intact son.

My DS is 17 months.

We lived in GA for his first year and now in WA and I still haven't seen another intact little boy.

My intact DS is 14 months, and my intact step-son is almost 13 years old. We live in Georgia (the state, not the county), and I would believe that intact males are in the vast minority here. But change has to start somewhere!

My sons are 6 years, 2 years, and almost 5 mos. I also have a 4 year old and 2 year old nephews. My sister and I both live in the Midwest (she's in OH.) We're from W. Pa, which is probably the same as the midwest in a lot of ways. lol
