My hubby is 37 (38 in July) and he has never had a problem.....nothing not even a UTI (and we've been together since 1989 so I know for sure for the past 21 years there has been absolutely nothing).
My 3.5y/o has no issues. We do nothing special.

My husband is intact and has had ZERO problems. No infections, no "dirtiness," no problems retracting, never teased as a child.

Three boys, intact, no problems. My DS who is now 7 didn't retract until he was 6 and sometimes his foreskin was red and a little irritated, but it was only because it was "itchin' him" (lol) and he was fiddling with it all the time. Not a problem, in my book, but only natural.

My brother is 47, intact, and has never had any problems (to the best of my knowledge - it's not like he talks to me about his penis, yk?).

My oldest son is 17, intact, and has never had any problems, not even separation pain or anything like that. (I'll admit I don't know if he's retractable or not, because he doesnt' talk to me about his penis any more than my brother does!)

My youngest son is almost 5, intact, and has never had any problems. He's been fully retractable for about a year, loved showing us his new "trick", and has had no issues at all.

I was cut at birth, which we all know prevents urinary tract infections, right?

So imagine my dismay when at age 35 I had to deal with 6 months of recurrent infections despite being a lifelong hygiene freak. They only stopped after an invasive cystoscopic treatment.

A few years later I started restoring my foreskin. Since restoring I also coincidentally work out of my home, so for the first time in my life skipping a day of showering is not at all unusual for me. But in 10 years of wearing my foreskin over the glans pretty much always and showering less than ever - no ailments. Imagine. Nature knows what to do if left alone.

34yo DF, no problems. His male family members are all intact (British) and AFAIK no problems there either.

Four different intact boys in my home daycare, no problems.

OTOH, the 18mo little boy I do respite care for from time to time is circ'ed and has a buried penis. I was *shocked* the first time I changed his diaper.

No problems here, going on 3 years old! However, mine did pee on people during diaper changes as a baby. Also, now I get the announcement from DS "Me play me penis Mama; is niiiiiiiiiiiice" rather often. I wonder if self-play is more frequent for intact boys?

Soon-to-be 6yo ds with no problems ever. 3 week old ds who also manages to pee on his own head during changes. (I cut up a soft old t-shirt and throw a square over him to keep both of us pee-free now )

7 and almost 5 no problems. Once when the oldest was 6 he was sore and swollen, but he said his brother had kicked him during the night and it was fine in a day. The younger is partly retractible, more so than the older.

Wow...is that the deal? I never connected circ status with why my boys weren't peeing all over during diaper changes like I was warned that they would do. I guess it does make sense though...the first time a freshly circed baby pees during a diaper change and realize it doesn't sting, but when he pees in the diaper it does sting...well that's got to make a lasting impression!

I have 3 daughters, and they have all peed on me, especially my first. She got me a LOT.

I have two intact boys, and neither of them ever peed on me. They didn't start "peeing in public" until after they were potty trained and now they take joy in peeing off the deck, peeing at targets...

They are 6 & 8...no problems!

As above, I live in the UK. None of my nephews, sons, brothers etc. are circumcised and none have had any problems. I find the idea of automatic circumcision bizarre.

My DS is only one year old, but we've had no problems. In fact, his penis seems trouble-free, much easier to care for compared to friends' and family members' circ'ed boys. They talk about post-circ care, pulling back the remaining skin to clean, putting vasoline on nightly to prevent adhesions, even re-circumcising, and I can't relate at all.
