My intact son will be 6yrs in April.

I'm so thankful we had girls first, back when we were young and dumb and didn't question anything but instead followed the trends/doctor blindly. I'm so thankful that by the time our son was born that we had wised up!

Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)

Expecting again early Oct 2014!

My intact son is almost 16 months!
His intact dad is 26! His intact uncle is 24!
His intact grandpa is 54! His intact great uncle is 50! His other intact great uncle is around 50 also!

This is a family ritual of not hurting our little boys! I didn't really understand but I am so glad my hubby knows best!

Busy wife to dh for 5 years and mama to ds1 (11.09.04), ds2 (7.17.06) and ds3 coming Aug 09. :::

12 going on 13... But unfortunatly he has been harassing his father to let him be circumcised. Thankfully i completely agree with his father that until he's 18.. he's intact!

And.. my best friend's/next door neighbors son, who is my son's best friend, is also intact after we convinced her not to have him circumcised when he was born.

He is 11.

I think it should be at least 30! Not until he's experienced a bit of sexuality!

definitely start him on some literature explaining the purpose of the foreskin and things like that. maybe that will get him to change his mind that he doesn't have to "look" like all the boys in the locker room....

My Ds's are 5.5 and 2.5 years old. My 2st we left intact because his father was intact. The second we left intact because we didn't have any reason to circ. The second's father is circ'd, but he was perfectly okay with not circumcising, and said that it was kind of creepy (for him) to care about your penises matching. None of the other boys in the close family are intact, but I never got any fuss from them other than the initial "Oh! He's not circumsized, doesn't that look funny." which I never responded to. We're in Florida, which has such a mix of populations and cultures that I don't think anything is considered weird here anymore.

He knows all about it, probably more than I do. His main issue is that his foreskin was still very tight up until last summer when his doctor instructed him on how to work on streching it to make it retract comfortably.

Well the problem is a bit more deep than that, he doesn't really care about sex. He's told us that he wants circumcised because 'it would be easier to keep clean and it wouldn't be annoying'. He has not yet hit puberty, and his extra foreskin is almost as long as his penis when he is flaccid, and he claims it makes urination more difficult and it makes cleaning it more difficult.

I am kept out of the loop.. (see my thread that where i asked for help in the health forum) So, I know little more than what i am told and have gotten to see for myself. it does worry me however.

My intact son is 1 year old. My first son, sadly, was circumcised (before we knew the truth). My husband and brother are both cut, so I thought it was necessary. All of our future sons will be left intact of course. In florida, we just managed to get medicaid to stop paying for the circumcisions, so more than 64% of the babies are leaving the hospital intact!! Yippee!!

DS is 7 years old. DH was circumcised and we're so happy to have broken the cycle.

I meant that by 30, he aught to have a good idea of the value of a complete penis, having had plenty of sexual experience to reflect on.

My intact boy is turning 12 Years old today...sniff- he is growing up.
He was born on Oahu and I really got a bunch of BS from the nurses there for not "snipping" him.
DH was born in Louisiana in 1970 and is (just like his 3 brothers ) uncircumcised.

Wow, that's awesome!

Let you tell me about my Louisiana man...

He's 7 of 9 kids. Their dad is an intact man. There's 5 boys and 4 girls. The first 2 boys were left intact (his older brothers). Then, they circumcised the next boy (older brother)... and unfortunately him and the last boy (youngest brother).

He and I have issues about circumcision and has been about the ONLY battle in our almost 6 year relationship, but even HE has wondered why some were circumcised and some were left intact.

The oldest would have born in Louisiana in the early-'70s. He was born in 1983 and the youngest was born in 1988.

An interesting story indeed, but I think it's WAY COOL that your husband and his brothers were left intact!

Too cool !!!! Must be a Louisiana thing
I asked my MIL once why she did not have her boys circumcised and she simply answered me " I simply did not see any reason to have them cut-what for?" I thought that that is to neat !!!!
His oldest brother was born in '65 and the youngest in '79 and she stuck by her guns all these yrs.
Now the interesting thing to me is...the boys did not have their sons cut but his two sisters had their boys cut....I wished that I could explain this:
