So the title is vague because I can't explain my question in a short title ..
I'd like to start off by saying that JB and I do NOT plan to circumcise our dear son when he is born. JB is appalled that circumcision is a cultural norm, and he could never do that to his own son after having researched it himself. He doesn't have any insecurities about his own circumcised penis, as we both appreciate it very much
, but he also doesn't think it's right to cut part of our bodies off! I very much agree.
Since we have made this decision, he told his mother of our plans, and she replied with the normal (misinformed) reply that it is better for their hygiene etc and we know she didn't have good information available so we don't BLAME her or any of that drama.. BUT she DID mention that instead of being "snipped" off, his foreskin was CLAMPED until it fell off itself.
Both JB and I have always noticed (and appreciated) a large chunk of that skin that was left behind, that is highly sensitive. We now realize why this is our favorite part of his penis haha.. I am wondering, is this because he was clamped instead of snipped? Do other men have this or is JB just very very lucky? This piece of skin is why he has always enjoyed sex and has never felt like he is missing anything. I am thankful he has this because I think he is emotionally and mentally healthier since he doesn't feel he is missing as much, and it makes it easier for him since he is not having jealous emotions toward our son for getting to be uncircumcised .. I've heard some men just want to circumcise their son because it happened to them, and I am very thankful JB is not that kind of person. He just believes we are born the way we were meant to be and it is wrong to alter ourselves or our children just for cultural/social reasons, as do I.
I am SO thankful for that chunk of extremely sensitive skin, but I am also curious.. Why is it there/do others have it/ is it because he was clamped versus snipped?
