Brother (21 y.o.) - no problems
Brother (28 y.o.) - no problems
Father (57 y.o.) - no problems
Don't actually know of anyone who's intact who's had any problems.
Peace through homemaking.
My DS is 3 1/2 and two years ago when we were in the process of moving, I left him in a wet CD for too long. (I admit it. I forgot to change him for a couple of hours. I stink.)
His foreskin turned red and swelled a little.
The complex solution was to take his wet diaper off. He ran around naked but that was more because I didn't know where the dipes were and was butt deep in washing the gross refrigerator out. That was a yucky day!
Voila. Our one and only foreskin problem solved.
my dad and two brothers are intact, no problems.
DH is intact, and definitely never had a problem.
I have three little boys who are also intact and have had zero issues.
Well, my middle son did have a awful penis accident climbing over a crib rail that resulted in lots of stitches, but that, I blame on the crib not his foreskin.
: All right. This is getting depressing! I know there are more mom's out there who have intact sons and haven't had any problems! I searched for a thread so I could bring one back but, um, only got through 37 pages
So, I have two sons (3 1/2 and almost 7 months) and we have had no problems!
Also, two nephews (5 and 3) also no problems.
This is along the lines of the "Anyone still love their DH" thread started in PAP.
Let's see something positive! :

8 yr old son, no problems , nada , never
He seems to have a urethral opening that's a big large, and he's had "pearls" twice, but those aren't *problems*, they just *are* and it hasn't been any sort of big deal that has caused problems or pain.
It's pretty likely I've posted on this thread before, but I'm sure it's been a while. I'm hardly ever on this site anymore thanks to my Facebook --ahem--addiction . My son is 9 years old and has never had one single issue with his foreskin, not even diaper rash as an infant. I have not once, not even for the tiniest second imaginable wished that his dad and I had chosen to have him circumcised. There are so many ways that I am not perfect but I am 100% positive we made the correct decision when it came to leaving his penis alone.

It is not until I registered on this forum a month ago that I found out that circumcision is still so common? I have never met anyone who is circumcised, never had it recommended and have never seen a circed penis in my life. How common is it? In Germany, as far as I know, only orthodox Jews and have their babies circumcised and some muslims do, too, when the boys are older. But it is not common. My son is "intact" I would have never even thought of cutting off some of his body.
Does it get recommended in the hospital? When is it done? And why? Doesn't the penis get less sensitive and make sex less pleasurable?
My DS never had a problem with his penis, he is 8 now. When he was four or five, he learned to retract it gently in the bath and does so at every bath. It's always clean and not smelly or anything. Neither is DH's ;)
And as one previous poster said, sex with an uncircumcised man actually is far superior to circumcised, lol.
14 and 18 years. No issues. As your kids get older and their penises are no longer seen by you or (god forbid) discussed in ANY fashion, this whole "issue" seems to be even more of a "non-issue".
My sons have penises. The ones they were born with. The same kind all baby boys are born with. Just like my daughters still have the genitals they were born with. The very thought that there is something inherently wrong with the design of the genitals of the male species is just insane.
Another update. Almost 6 years old here and no problems whatsoever. He did have redness a few times when he was still in diapers, but nothing that required intervention.
I hope moms-to-be reading this and considering keeping their sons intact take heart that for the most part, having an intact son is really nothing that requires worry or extra vigilance or anything. It's pretty mundane and uneventful, as it should be.
