How old is your intact son? - Page 8

post #141 of 179
Our intact son is 2, and his baby brother on the way will be just the same! Daddy is circ'ed, but we just didn't feel this was a good reason to do the same thing to him (don't quite get the logic that many people seem to use here, but oh well!).

My son is 4 months. Actually - he is the first real live intact male I have seen. My friends thought it was funny that I had never seen an intact one so they bought me a magazine called "uncut". It was an education for me of course. I hope it is the norm from now on in our family.

My boys are all intact and are 12, 5, and 4. Have never had any probs. My dad who is intact is the one who tlaked me into not getting my oldest boy done, i was 17 and thought it was just something you were supposeed to do at the time, thank goodness for my daddy!!!

My intact son will be 4 in July.
Any boys I have in the future will, of course, also be intact.

My intact son will be 6yrs in April.

I'm so thankful we had girls first, back when we were young and dumb and didn't question anything but instead followed the trends/doctor blindly. I'm so thankful that by the time our son was born that we had wised up!

My intact son is almost 16 months!
His intact dad is 26! His intact uncle is 24!
His intact grandpa is 54! His intact great uncle is 50! His other intact great uncle is around 50 also!

This is a family ritual of not hurting our little boys! I didn't really understand but I am so glad my hubby knows best!

12 going on 13... But unfortunatly he has been harassing his father to let him be circumcised. Thankfully i completely agree with his father that until he's 18.. he's intact!

And.. my best friend's/next door neighbors son, who is my son's best friend, is also intact after we convinced her not to have him circumcised when he was born.

He is 11.

I think it should be at least 30! Not until he's experienced a bit of sexuality!

definitely start him on some literature explaining the purpose of the foreskin and things like that. maybe that will get him to change his mind that he doesn't have to "look" like all the boys in the locker room....

My Ds's are 5.5 and 2.5 years old. My 2st we left intact because his father was intact. The second we left intact because we didn't have any reason to circ. The second's father is circ'd, but he was perfectly okay with not circumcising, and said that it was kind of creepy (for him) to care about your penises matching. None of the other boys in the close family are intact, but I never got any fuss from them other than the initial "Oh! He's not circumsized, doesn't that look funny." which I never responded to. We're in Florida, which has such a mix of populations and cultures that I don't think anything is considered weird here anymore.

He knows all about it, probably more than I do. His main issue is that his foreskin was still very tight up until last summer when his doctor instructed him on how to work on streching it to make it retract comfortably.
