My 3 sons and my husband are all intact and they've no problems what so ever! I could never, ever demand any of my children to be circumcised out of human rights concerns! I'm a great youth rights advocate, aren't I ?

Well no problems here, as an intact male. I don't have kids yet... or a wife. But still, I don't know any family members out of all the "kids" that has ever been circ'd. I would know too, considering my mom always blabs about these kinds of "secrets." So that would make for 7 intact males w/no problems including me, my 19yo brother and my cousins (aged 13, 14, 15, 16 and 22). Since reading up on the horrific practice and browsing this message board, I've become proud at the fact I've been able to keep my foreskin and that all the "guys" has been spared too. Thank God we live in Canada I guess.

Since this post is bumped a few times I thought that I would add.

DH His brother and father are all intact and no problems.
My Dad and brother were not circ'ed at birth but my brother was later because of an injury, not infection, but had no problems because of not being circ'ed.
My Two precious DS's are not circ'ed and have no problems either.

Wife to DH, Mom to my Intact Boys DS1: Born 02 Pain Med Free Hospital Birth, BF'ed for 9 Months, Partially Vax'd DS2: Born 06 via UC, BF'ed 3 years 10 months, and UnVax'd

My little guy is 3 1/2 and has had no problems being intact. I know my dad is also intact and while I have never asked "Dad, have you ever had any foreskin problems?" he is still intact at almost 72 years of age, according to mom.

My Dh is circed due to alleged "medical reasons", which honestly, I don't buy into. He is the ONLY circed man I know, so all my prev boyfriends, male family members etc are all intact and not a problem among them.

All three boys intact and very healthy, no problems.

I want to add that it is incredibly easy to clean an intact penis on a small boy and I am assuming that it is still easy once they're retractable, although it is likely since our oldest is still not retracted that he'll be the one cleaning himself once that happens. This 'cleaning' issue is very strange... I can guarantee I have to spend more time washing my hair than any man spends cleaning his intact penis. Sheesh!

My father and brother are also intact and have had no problems.

Well, I've been absent for 8 months, and during that time, it turns out that I have completely transformed. You are all precious. Thank you for being here and sharing your lives. You are truly a gift. namaste.gif Jan. 23, 2012

I don't want to come across rude or anything, but I have never understood the meaning of such threads - honestly. Why say there are no problems with something that was meant to be there? I mean, we don't go around saying: "I have had my clit for 30 years now - no problems"

Because we don't have an entire culture brainwashed into thinking that clits are dirty, disease-causing, problematic, not really a necessary part of the anatomy anyway, and best removed at birth.
If our culture was as biased against clits as it is against foreskins, we would indeed need to stand up and shout, "I've had my clit for 40 years and never had a problem! Neither has my mom or my grandma or my daughter! Listen people, clits are meant to be there and they are easy to clean! In fact, I actually get sexual pleasure from mine and no one has a right to take it away from me!"

THree intact boys, with no problems. I have also had three different doctors for them that were supportive, and not one of them tried to retract them.

ummm...i don't have any sons, but my father (age 57) and brother (age 29) are both intact & neither of them has ever had a problem...i would consider that very encouraging as far as looking at long term contentedness.

Polihaupt is from the UK it looks like. She doesn't seem to know that American culture thinks there is an inherent "problem" with the natural penis. If she did she would understand why "we" need to keep reinforcing to America that there is NO PROBLEM.. THAT is the point of such a thread-

understand now???

Yes, I am in the UK, but I did live in the US for 5 years so I am aware of the circumcision culture there.

I guess what I was thinking was something in the lines of someone's post here once. She asked why we often use the term uncircumcized: It is like saying un-masectomized, un-amputated... Saying uncircumcised inadvertently feeds on the idea that circumcision is/should be normal, but at the same time, it is the only way one can be understood in many circles.

I did not mean to say the intentions here are not noble - many people out there should read through this thread. At the same time, a part of me makes me feel angry that there is even a need for this in a developed country such as the US. I hope someday the need to justify keeping one's son intact will become as absurd as saying: "I have my clit and I am fine"

Absolutely! That is why we try to say "intact" or "normal," rather than "uncircumcised."

Let's hope so! But we aren't there yet, not nearly. Perhaps the dropping rates in Canada will be a good influence.

Because people come to this forum to learn about circumcision and hopefully choose not to, since no one posts looking for advice on their son's problem free foreskin, they only see the threads about problems, and then the problems don't seem rare, but very commonplace. I think its great to have a thread folks making that decision can look at to see that most of the time there are no problems at all.
