I only have 1 intact friend. The rest of the guys I know, which is quite a large number all do the "deed" and they're all cut. We're a very open group and we discuss this on a daily basis. Yes we're in college and our minds are only on sex. Circ definitely hasn't stopped my friends from masturbating.

Yay! Great news!

On the topic of male masturbation, I once believed all men did it even if they denied it. Until I met my husband.

Because of past abuse in his childhood he doesn't masturbate at all. He doesn't even touch it to use the bathroom. He will wash of course but nothing else. (I am not against solo pleasure at all and I wish that he didn't feel that way about himself)

Soo.. for whatever the reason, it is possible that some men don't.

You are awesome!!! Your friend is awesome!!! Hurray!!!

BTW, you can post an email if you get your friend's permission to do so, and put in your post that she gave her consent. I don't know if she knows you had asked for advice here, so you may not be comfortable telling her and asking her permission, but just to let you know.

The power of education....and of a woman willing to learn, and a friend willing to help her and approach her in a manner that was conducive to learning!

Totally awesome. It's post updates like this that keep me working on this issue and moderating this forum. Some days this volunteer job is pretty thankless, it takes hours of my day and tires me out with all the "well, she circ'd anyway" posts.

Thanks for a great update!

I really did have a feeling that she wouldn't do it..she was so open to my emails and never once said, "hey stop sending this Cr*p" I truly felt once she took in all the info there was just no way she could do it. She said her other friend sent her the actual video of the procedure. I was saving that another email but she said it really broke her heart. I am always leery to send that b/c I always think the other person is going to think it is a scare tactic but luckily this time it got through.

Puppyfluffer and lula's mom thanks for keeping this open...I know a lot of hard work went into fixing it.

Im sure there are some men who dont masturbate for religious reasons
that wouldnt be hard for me to believe at all...

My husband doesnt for religious reasons and everytime he has
a meeting with the bishop the bishop asks him. I am not a part
of this religion anymore but he believes in his faith , it is his
choice not mine.

as to this comment-

"that's why men have wet dreams"

I am a WOMAN and i have wet dreams and ORGASM in my sleep
ALL THE TIME! Men aint the only ones honey
