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...

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

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...

This has very rarely come up, mostly I suppose because when DS was born (in Canada) the circ rate was around 50% where we live and likely a lot less in other areas. However, I usually say that I had...
