Dh-Intact
Ds-Intact

Hubby was a homebirth, so I think that is party why he's uncut. Ds was a homebirth too. Thankfully, I learned tons of important holistic info from my Aunt and Uncle who are both chiropractors...who knows we may have been like the many uninformed Americans about circ's!

Dh was cut as a baby.
Ds is intact...I put all the energy I could into persuading dh that we not cut him. Know what won him over in the end? Telling him that circing reduces the overall size of the penis anywhere from 10-25 percent. My ILs are horrified that I didn't have ds circed.

Anyhow, my son is the only boy I know of that is intact. All sons of my friends, as far as I know, have been cut. I myself have never seen an intact penis other than my son's and those in photographs. Not having ds cut is probably one of the best decisions I have ever made.

So, how do you beat that one? An intact adult male from Europe wanting to circ for social reasons. It honestly makes me sick to my tummy!!

Have you told him that the rates are falling in the US? What is it now? 57% are circed? Heck... that means almost half are left intact :-)
