Yep, that was what I thought first as well. My grandfather was from Russia, obviously intact...when my dad was born here in the US they kept him intact as well even though he lived in a high circ area. I'm sure my Grandparents were horrified by circ. My grandmother also homebirthed and nursed as long as her kiddos wanted.
I have a mom friend who had a summer affair with a foreign man while in college (can't remember, it was some mediterranean country). Well, she talked about it so glowingly during a visit. Saying she's never had anything like that experience again since. Yep, and "coincidentally" he was her only intact partner. She just thought he was just really experienced or something....so tender and sensitive! She said she never had so much passion before.
