I circ'ed my first son because I saw several infections in elderly patients I took care of during my college years when I worked at a nursing home. Then I heard that many kids needed to be circed in their early years for infections. Of course, I thought it was the best thing....
Fortunately I learned more, and decided not to circ my second son. I learned that the vast majority of those issues were with care given, not an inherent problem.
My husband was born in eastern Europe and is intact. He says that little boys used to try to impress each other with how much they could balloon during peeing.
Not a harmful thing at all, totally normal.
