Sorry to bump it again so soon after the last, but... Intact and noooooo problems ever. I think having been circumcised would have dramatically impacted my relationship with my parents, of course, in a negative way.

Intact DS is 14.5 months...no problems.

My intact brother is 23 years old...no problems (not that I ask on a regular basis, but when we talked about it when I was pg, he didn't mention anything)

My intact nephew is only 3 months old (already!?), but it's worth stating 'no problems'!

I don't know if this counts, but I know four men in my adult life who are intact:

-A thirty-something close friend who was born in the UK but raised in the US. He has always been very vocal about how happy he is to be intact. Without going into further detail, his wife also seems very pleased. They now have a son who is intact.

-An uncle in his sixties. Born in a rural area. Reports from my Aunt have been very positive. She's a former nurse and likes to talk about these subjects so I have heard an earful LOL.

-A twenty-something cousin (son of above uncle). We questioned him when this subject came up with his sister and being intact is so normal and uneventful to him that he couldn't even fathom why we were asking. So, yeah, no problems there! Oh, and he was on a navy sub (read: all men) for a looong time and says he was never teased specifically about this topic.

-A twenty-something co-worker (subject came up because of my bumper sticker). Said there was a little confusion when he was a young teenager because it seemed to "grow" more than he had thought it should or something like that LOL. But he has since "gotten over it" and is very happy to be intact. No physical problems ever. And for what's it's worth, he is quite an interesting and dynamic person.

I want to also add that my husband and each one of his four close male friends from college are all circ'ed and not one is happy about it. Each one of them is opposed to the practice.

My 8m old son is intact and just fine. However -- we did have a little redness when he was about a month old and the dr warned that we would have to circumcise if it didn't get better soon -- scared me to death but he is FINE now and I'm so glad we made the decision we did.

My dad is intact. No problems ever -- as far as I know lol... I haven't ASKED him about it....

My brothers are both intact. No problems that I've ever heard of.

My DH is intact. He does have a problem -- severe exzema. Yes, even there. But, um, that's not related. I guess you could say that if he had no foreskin, then he'd have a few square inches less exzema... but anyway...

DS is intact. He had some swelling and redness on the glans from about age 3 to age 6, but nothing serious and it went away. Never really knew why.

I wonder if he would have said the same thing if your son's ear was a little red... "Let's see, there is some redness around the outer ear. I think we need to chop it off. Don't worry, he'll still be able to hear."



The power of suggestion rears its ugly head yet again...

My ds is 2. We've had no issues. Our new little boy will also be left intact.

I also know a couple adults who are intact and have had no problems

My college boyfriend is intact. He was my first (and only) intact sexual partner. I didn't have a clue about the issue and thought nothing of it at the time. It certainly wasn't a turn off!

My father is intact. He says it has never been an issue for him - no infections or the like, no locker room harassments.

I haven't been over here in a long while. When my grandson was first born and we decided to keep him intact.

Well, he is 10 yr old now and has had no problems.

We have two more intact grandsons ages 4 and 2 and they have not had any problems either.

OK, back over to the vaccine forum. That was my next stop and boy are we glad we researched that issue. Can I invite you guys all to come over?

I have a good friend who's 18 (quite loose!) and circ'd and so is his 19yo brother. Their slightly older sister has a few children. I don't know her at all, but I wondered about her son's (my friend's nephew's) status. I asked and my friend that this little 7mo boy is intact! Growing up w/ circ'd little brothers I was hopeful she wouldn't circ because it sure isn't covered by our insurance (OHIP) and the rates are so low in Canada and doctors don't recommend it (I hope!). He has his own apartment and his mom and his sister along w/ her son have moved in. I wonder how their mother feels about having an intact grandson. I'm just glad that people DON'T have to continue the cycle of abuse!

I have a 3 year old son who is very happily intact and has had zero problems.

My father is going to be turning 47 this year and he has said he has never had a single problem. He says he has always loved being a "whole man".

DS1 is 11, DS2 is 8 mos.--we've never had any problems!

(And when DS1 found out more details about circ'ing last week, he came up, gave me a hug, and thanked me for not having done that to him!)
