Oh L,
Thank you for the mention. Although this topic is something I feel serious about, and I think its lovely that you are giving it some thought, I'm sorry you have been made to feel as though you should be unhappy with your 'lot in life'.

As an American woman who has only dealt with American cut men, I can only theorize on the benefits of being natural. I refuse to believe that the natural penis is dirty or dangerous or that men are too stupid to know how to wash properly. But I've done my bit in life advocating and debating it and it basically isn't very fun to get all worked up about it (and I'm here for the fun). I also know first hand that inspite of whatever 'benefits' being natural have, a cut one (barring an ill performed surgery) works and functions and plays just fine.

My sons are one each. I let the first get cut because I hadn't learned enough about it and 12 hours giving birth I was easily coerced into getting it done by the Ped and my Mr. The second time around, it was rather an argument with my husband who is very happy with his and sees it as simply 'normal'. The argument ended with something like "sweetheart, I love you, but I will beat you down in the street with stick and die slowly before I let that happen to my new baby boy" ... such was my voracity on the subject.

So now, we have one of each. And it's my job to make sure that they both understand the practical implications and that they both feel confident with their willies as they are, because I hope for both of them to have healthy, satisfying sex lives and self confidence. My little one's generation (currently age three) will likely see his male peers about at about 50/50 cut/uncut and I think he'll be just fine.

Well, I don't really. I just do find myself wondering what might have been. I mean, if this thing is this much fun with most of its nerve endings rubbed off, how great would it be if that ended in something as moist and sensitive and protected as a clitoris?

My Sister-in-Law expressed an opinion that it's important that boys be either cut or not, but the same as their fathers, which I thought at the time was interesting, and still do, but I think, in the end, your approach is the right one. You teach your children to take care of their willies, just as they are, and that there's nothing wrong with either kind.

Because you go to bed with the willie you have!

See that 'like father, like son' argument is one that I've never understood, on two accounts.

A boy's bits look nothing at all what so ever like a grown man's bits. A foreskin not withstanding. Lots of boys have different hair color, eye color, and general musculature as their fathers. How often in life do fathers and sons compare penises?

Two, as girl, my childhood parts looked nothing at all like my mother's parts and it never occurred to me that they should.

*shrugs* Just had to comment on that. ;)

To me, the argument FOR circ, is either that its done for religious significance, or because that is simply what the parents want to see. It's a cosmetic surgery. If that's what parents want for their boys, then okay, but they should be honest that its really about 'looks' because all the other arguments about medicine and safety etc. just don't hold up.

Ack! Sorry. I got way more into it, then I meant to. *biting tongue now*

Those are excellent points! I wonder if those folks feel fathers should shave till their sons hit puberty... After all, I would assume that end of dad's doesn't resemble resemble that end of theirs.

Yeah, the more I think about it, the less it makes sense to me either.

No tongue-biting called for, from where I sit. The whole purpose of this thread is to explore this stuff!
