expecting the surprise of our lives Fall 2012!
A few years ago he went down a slide on his stomach and landed on the ground...which had rocks (as if another child had thrown rocks down the slide). They tore his foreskin. He rinsed it off with water and, um, super glued it.
He says it healed without incident.
He loves telling this story.
Whenever he tells it, I find myself wondering, what if he didn't have a foreskin? EOWCH! Stitches on the glans probably.

My dad's never had anything bad enough happen that anyone would think I needed to hear about it. I know he's intact though because of taking baths together when I was a little kid.
ETA: I don't look in this forum often, but when it does catch my eye the problems seem to be "the doctor messed with his foreskin!!!" and the solution seems to be to give the information on intact penis care to doctors when you first meet them. "Hi, I hope to goodness this is information you already know, but I'm giving it to you anyway so you understand why I'm telling you to never touch my son's penis. Not even for "just a look", not even to "gently check things", and ESPECIALLY never ever ever to "see if it's retracting yet"." If the doctor's offended, they were crappy anyway and good riddance.
On the flip side, I've known QUITE a few circ'd adult men who have problems as a result (incomplete circ's, scarring, re-adhesion issues).
