That being male partners of course since nearly all females in this country are protected.

Circed but wishes he wasn't. He is a bit miffed that his mother made a decision about his penis without his consent. In the future any baby boys will remain intact.

circ. He has no issue with being circ....as he has nothing to compair it with. Has never heard of restoring and I will not bring it up unless he approaches me.

Our sons are intact. Dh thinks circ is not necessary.

My dh is circed and wishes he wasn't. He's interested in restoration but says he's too lazy to do it.

Circ. It is horrible too! He has all the hair issues and pain. He didn't even know what was wrong till I started researching circ. because of the issues with our DS's circ:

He is SO mad about it now. He brought it up with his mom and she said "I was never so glad as when they took you and cut that UA violation off of you. Men don't need all that extra stuff hanging on them." : Now he is mad at her.

He agreed we would never circ another boy EVER!

Then he ordered a TLC tugger. Maybe he will stick with it

That pretty sums it up for us. Except we only have one son

DH was circ'd at age 3 or 4. When we found out how horrifying it is when pregnant with our son, he got very upset that he was circ'd. He tried restoring with T-Tape, but stopped because he said it was annoying. He wants to buy a TLC tugger or similar device but hasn't yet.

Can you say "control issues"?

Bravo! Lots of good links in the restoration sticky above.

My DP is circ'd, and thus far has shown no interest whatsoever in restoring.

Is it for American couples only? Most mean are cic in the US still, aren't they?
post #13 of 51
Intact but he's Austrian so I know how lucky I am. His brother was born in Austrilla so was his sis, his dad travelled a lot. His mom refused to come to America when she was pregos with DH and waited till he wass 2 before moving here for a year then they all went back to Austria till he was 14 so I know I am lucky if he was born here it may be a diffrent situation.

Circ'ed but not upset about it. Very supportive of not circ'ing our sons, however. I actually was noncommittal (due to being undereducated) with our first baby, and left it up to him to make the final decision. His take was, "Why perform unnecessary surgery on a newborn? That doesn't even make sense."

So we didn't, and I am so glad.

My dh is intact.
Dh was born in Maine in '78. (father from NC, mother from PA).

dh is circ, and is restoring.
He's as pro-intact as I am. He proudly wore his "stop circumcision" wrist band until the red lettering came off
And HE was the one who said no circ when we were first pregnant in 2002.
I am so thankful for him :

My husband is exactly the same way. He is also adamant about not circing our children (it was actually him that turned me into a no-circ person!).

DH is circed he wanted ds circed to look like him and I told him over my dead body so that was the end of that. He still thinks that it should be the parents choice He knows plenty now thanks to me about circ but he is stubborn.
