14 and 18 years. No issues.  As your kids get older and their penises are no longer seen by you or (god forbid) discussed in ANY fashion, this whole "issue" seems to be even more of a "non-issue"....

It actually is much easier than caring for a baby girl-no crevices to clean out. Also easier than caring for a circ'd baby boy-no vaseline to apply, no skin to pull back at each diaper change.

Two intact boys -14 and 10, no problems that I felt the need to see the doctor for, same with my girls. Minor irritations-nothing a good soak in the tub wouldn't cure.
