There is a circ article in this month's Men's Journal. It is actually pretty ok, the writer frames it in the context of having two brothers that had boys, one circ'd and one didn't. I think the article had a fairly good anti-circ slant... he stated both sides but seemed to be convincing that an intact penis is a good thing and it is easy to take care of. He even asked the circing bro how he could do it after hearing everything the anti-circ bro had to say...

anyway, the article isn't online...

Thanks owensmom! I just bought it. I am showing it to DH tonight so he understands I am not wacky.

I think it's the most fair and least inflammitory of the articles I've read about it. While it's balanced, it definitely seems more anti-circ than pro.

I think the sidebar at the end... on circumcised dads of intact sons- was priceless. I think the article was definatly anti- althought there were some things that I would have said differently.

Buy this issue! (and there is a really nice fashion spread in this issue using Pro-cyclists as models... mmmmm!)


Love Sarah

I agree this was a good article! I think it will definitely cause some guys to at least think twice about this decision! I think it is great to see an article like this in a popular Men's magazine! Dh suscribes to MJ and I was excited to read the article!
I am so happy with our decision to keep ds intact!

Just thought I'd post a link since the article's online now:

http://www.mensjournal.com/healthFit...cumcision.html

I really like the palm/back of hand comparison they mention in the article - it puts the sensitivity point across very well.
