Could you be a bit more specific about your son's problem? Or was it that the doctor THOUGHT he had a problem? The reason I ask is that in North American medical circles there has been (and...

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...

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 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.
