Wow! I prefer to believe that God or natural evolution, or whatever version of creation you believe in, did not make a mistake. Men are born with foreskins for a reason. If I ever decide to make a...

A similar thing happened to my son when he was 11. I was woken up in the middle of the night by him yelling for me. He had gone for a pee and it was obviously stinging really badly as he was...

I'm not sure about circumcising in support of the Jews - from what I understand, the U.S. was quite guarded and had quotas on how many jewish "refugees" they would allow in. I think it had more to...

If the discharge smells then it might be pus and the antibiotics should clear it up. However if it just smegma then you don't need to do anything, that is normal. Your doctor should never have...

The short answer is "NO", your son is perfectly normal. According to a study from Denmark (I believe), in intact cultures where the foreskins of children are not messed with, the average age of...

I don't think you need to even do that. In countries that have an intact culture that do not mess with children's foreskins, the AVERAGE age of retraction is around 10 1/2. Foreskins are self...

I agree with everything Michelle said - a tight foreskin is easily resolved by other methods than amputation. See: www.cirp.org/library/treatment/phimosis . I love the statistic that in Finland -...

Please, please don't even think of circumcising your 5 1/2 year old. A foreskin is a very valuable and useful organ. I know it is hard to see him as a sexual being, but one day he will be and the...

I wholeheartedly endorse "Asiago's" thoughts on this. That Dr is undoubtedly treating every intact boy that she sees in the same way, and potentially injuring all of them. For the sake of all her...

I have never seen that video, but would find it very interesting if you do come across it and can post a link.

I agree - calling a foreskin "extra skin" is ridiculous.

I agree. I too, am shocked that the procedure became common practice for so long - and still is. When one steps back and views circumcision for what it is : Cosmetic surgery on the genitalia of a...

May Dr Paul Fleiss rest in peace. The fact that he was an open and vocal opponent of RIC was good enough for me. That he offered alternative methods to the conventional "just chop it off" ...

From what I can tell the most sensitive areas left on a circumcised penis are the remains of the inner foreskin (which varies hugely depending on the method and operator) and, more so, the remnant...

That line is called the "raphe" and is the seam where the two parts of the penis came together and joined when he was developing in utero. All penises have one and it is often red. Go to...

Interesting story, Dave! Makes one think that maybe some doctors collect foreskins in a similar manner to some tribes who (historically) collected scalps!

There is no doubt that many have an...

This is my biggest argument too. Once that foreskin has been amputated, there is no putting it back!!

Also, I agree about the pain - but that is a short term issue, although it has been proven to...
