Did anyone see this? If I remember correctly, he said something like, "I HATE the circumcisions. And if you get enough drinks in me, I'll tell you all about why I hate them." (paraphrasing)

Telling a Jewish man this (Stewart) is bold!

I just went looking for the exact quote, and I found that Affleck got injured on the set of one of his movie and "had" to get an emergency circumcision. So I'm guessing that's where this is coming from. Poor guy!

Lol, I was just coming here to post about this. I was watching the show yesterday...he kind of said it in a joking manner, but he really looked pretty serious. We were talking about it, trying to figure out if he was being serious or not, but we were pretty sure he was being serious.
Poor guy! It isnt surprising that he has negative feelings if he had to be circ'd because of an injury (which, like most of you, I would highly doubt he really HAD to be circ'd).

wow. i didn't know he was intact and then circ'd as an adult. What kind of emergency would warrant doing that to a person??? How odd.

Yes, I wish he'd speak out (though understandable if he wouldn't.) Man, we need some celeb spokesperson besides Colin Farrell. Nice All-Amurrican boys like Ben Affleck.

(What on earth happened? And dang it, why'd some circ' happy Dr have to ruin one lone American sex symbol for what is likely no reason at all? Did a boom get caught on it? I'm dyin'. Did his wife ever get to experience it before? When WAS it? Now I need to get Ben Affleck drunk, it seems. Hmmn.)

Free of charge of course...

Yes I have to admit ladies, Ben seems even more appealing to me now that i know he is anti-circ.

Islaywhiskey was cut later in life too...and he isn't gonna restore....I think he's of the mind of "I know what I had, and having a facsimile of it would just taunt me even more"

That's what my DH said when I asked him if for some god awful reason he had to get cut and would restore after. He's like "No....I know what I'd lost and a mere facsimile of it would just make me lose it" And I swear when he goes and gets his vaesectomy and he comes back circumcised I will freckin sue the Dr to high heavan and drive him out of practice for good...That's my biggest fear of DH going to get his V. Of course he knows he doesn't need to get circd...but you know, when it's numb down there......unless you're watching. Heck one of my ex's had a close call when he went in for his Vaes...The dr was like "Ok the V is done..and now while you're numb are you SURE you dont want me to take a little off the..." "OH HELLZ NO!!!" "are you POSITIVE"?? I mean this Dr really put the pressure on my ex to get a circ done. And the way he worded it was like "You better consent cuz I already did it" He didn't though..but the thought just...woah.

See it's different in a guy who's been circd from birth because he never really KNEW what he was missing, so a restoration, is better than nothing right? But a guy who's been cut later in life, knowing, experiencing, what it's like, it just would be like a kick in the face because he KNOWS it's not the same...

This is what my DH explained to me anyway...

I want to see that Daily Show - so annoyed that we watched a dumb movie last night and I missed it! Anyone know if it's been put out on YouTube or Google videos at all?

My dh couldn't see either over the drape knowing what I know now if he had been intact I prolly would have insisted on going in there with him to protect him but he is already circed : as it was he has a skin bridge that doesn't bother him at all, and frankly is part of who dh is to me now, and the Dr kept asking him if he wanted him to "fix" it for him : I cant help but wonder if he could have billed the insurance for more $ for what would have been a very simple thing to do.

PS I know some skin bridges do need to be fixed and can cause major problems with erections and cleaning but that was NOT the case with my dh. He never mentioned to the Dr anything about it so IMO the Dr was soliciting for more work.

I got off topic there Poor Ben. I cant even imagine what might have happened to need a emergancy circ. :

ok, I just watched it, and that was funny!

I wouldn't put it past Jon Stewart to be a little opposed to it, even with his religious background. I think he has girls though?

JS knew the storyline, he probably was involved in writing the segment, he could have asked any other question, he didn't take the opprotunity to defend it, I think there is an anti-circ component to that.

call me nuts.

It's too bad they put that right at the end of the show. I would have liked to hear more.

Granted, i have not seen the clip yet...but it is a comedy show. If JS was involved in it, it was obviously in the context of comedy. Circumcision is not comedy--and it makes me uncomfortable to think that it was used in such a light.
