Here's the thing - I would bet that all the research you did was on American medical sites. Routine infant circumcision is a huge revenue generator for the American medical community, to the tune of...

Funny that the AAP would come out with this - they are only 20 + years behind the times. Dr Taddio , in Canada, did a study decades ago on circumcision pain which was halted early because of the...

Circumcision has nothing to to do with a decrease in rates for STDs etc. That is all hogwash propagated by a ignorant (of normal, intact male genitalia) medical profession in the U.S. in order to...

I have to comment on your last two reasons, since they are typically what the pro circ crowd throw out to validate their position.

I can't offer any upside at all. I was circumcised in infancy and the only time that I was ever totally at peace with it was prior to the age of six when I was oblivious to what had been done to me.

BXO has generally been the one condition that did warrant a circumcision because it is apparently quite difficult to treat. I have read that success has been achieved through the use of Carbon...

This is an interesting theory that I had not considered before. There may be some merit to it, but I have to say that I have not observed it in play. However, I have read that cut men are apt to...

When I said the inner foreskin remnant, I was referring to that skin left between the sulcus and the scar line. In my case, the frenulum that remains is normal at the attachment point under the...

I don't really know where this insistence that there is no difference comes from, although I do have a couple of theories. Back, in the 19th century when this barbaric practice started, those who...

I totally agree with you. Most "reports" and "studies" stating that there is no difference were done by doctors who have a ve$ted interest in keeping the custom going. Look at any objective study,...

That is a real shame. In my case the "doctor" left about half the frenulum, and it has always been the most sensitive part, followed by the sulcus and inner foreskin remnant.

Money is a huge factor. I have read that RIC is a 1 1/2 BILLION dollar industry in the U.S.

Of course DENIAL is another. Most doctors are circumcised themselves, and like most circumcised males,...
