I have to beg to differ about American women feeling differently... all the American women I know (I'm an American) who have been with both circumcised and intact men (and therefore can compare) have assured me that intact is definitely much more comfortable and preferable to circumcised... most American women have never been with an intact men and are therefore not qualified to make the comparison.
I've never been with a circumcised man, so I'm not qualified to compare either, but my friends tell me I'm not missing out on anything and that I'm very fortunate to have an intact husband.
On that topic... my husband is intact and my FIL is circumcised. My dh is very very grateful that my FIL didn't insist that my dh be circumcised. I'm very happy about that as well and I have no complaints
So much for the "matching" argument and the "but his future partner will prefer it" argument.
Good for you for looking into this! It can be very hard to go against cultural norms, but I have yet to meet a mama who regretted NOT circumcising. There's a whole thread up top about mamas who regret circumcising... and that's just at this one message board...
love and peace.
