My oldest son is 17, intact, and has never had any problems, not even separation pain or anything like that. (I'll admit I don't know if he's retractable or not, because he doesnt' talk to me about his penis any more than my brother does!)
My youngest son is almost 5, intact, and has never had any problems. He's been fully retractable for about a year, loved showing us his new "trick", and has had no issues at all.

So imagine my dismay when at age 35 I had to deal with 6 months of recurrent infections despite being a lifelong hygiene freak. They only stopped after an invasive cystoscopic treatment.
A few years later I started restoring my foreskin. Since restoring I also coincidentally work out of my home, so for the first time in my life skipping a day of showering is not at all unusual for me. But in 10 years of wearing my foreskin over the glans pretty much always and showering less than ever - no ailments. Imagine. Nature knows what to do if left alone.
HIS body, HIS decision.
Four different intact boys in my home daycare, no problems.
OTOH, the 18mo little boy I do respite care for from time to time is circ'ed and has a buried penis. I was *shocked* the first time I changed his diaper.
Wife to DH (06/10) and Mummy to DD (07/08).
J, partner-in-crime to D, mama to 4, including our brand new , missing my 7-wk-er
.... And, an added bonus for Mommy... I discovered that intact boys don't pee all over you during diaper changes!
I have 3 daughters, and they have all peed on me, especially my first. She got me a LOT.
I have two intact boys, and neither of them ever peed on me. They didn't start "peeing in public" until after they were potty trained and now they take joy in peeing off the deck, peeing at targets...
They are 6 & 8...no problems!

my ds is 8 and intact and my dp is 38 and intact both without any preoblems.. i used to work in a nursery in a muslim area so ive seeen a few circ'ed ones during nappy changes but its the norm to be intact
and i wouldn't count a UTI as a foreskin problem.. i get the darn things all the time and i don't have a foreskin as i am a girl. lol
