I think we need to "watch our language" in the sense that sexual pleasure for both genders isn't "heightened" with an intact penis. Sex with healthy, whole genitals is normal, standard, just-the-way-nature-designed-it-to-be-sex. Circumcised sex is abnormal, it's missing some valuable anatomy, it's diminished.
I agree about the assumption that the OP's children will be heterosexual. I disagree that circ="crappy sex". When a man (or woman, for that matter) is circumcised, the sex will not be NORMAL, it will not be as it's meant to be, it will not be as good as it could be because at least one partner is missing an important, sensitive, functional part of their genitals. Does that mean it can't be good, stimulating, or enjoyable? Of course not.
I think the OP was just saying that she wants the BEST for her daughter in all regards. I don't think it's creepy to hope that someday, when our children are sexually active, that they have a great sex life. Most of us believe the chances of that are physiologically better with whole genitals.
