I actually read this fark link/thread after happening upon The Atlantic article being discussed in the link.   The Atlantic article makes reference to the fact that most of the anti-circumcision crowd are actually women (the all-natural mom stereotype).  Why is this?  Why are dudes so okay with cutting stuff down there on a baby?  Esp like, guys that will even avoid taking scissors to that general region on themselves... (Yea you KNOW what I mean...)

Theaetetus: JesseL: Theaetetus: HPV vaccines, proper hygiene (possibly including proper masturbation technique), and condoms are all far better options (more effective and less chance for complications) for reducing the risks of those issues than cutting off part of the penis.

Care to enlighten us all as to how any of those prevent phimosis? Or is actually addressing the topic "stupid" to you, too?

Proper masturbation technique goes a long way in preventing phimosis, and it can generally be treated better with topical steroids than with surgery.

It's true, and many parents masturbate their newborns to prevent it. But, not all do, and in cases where parents are unwilling to do so, circumcision may be more appropriate.


AGAIN...
So, you decided the expert doctors article I posted was, in your 'expert' opinion not clear enough or lacking in authoritative background?

Interesting.
Here is an excerpt:
"Phimosis is as common in circumcised newborns as it is in boys who are not circumcised. Topical steroids are effective in approximately 85% of patients,[1] and could eliminate the need for newborn circumcision to avoid phimosis."

flux: Magnanimous_J: lol. exactly. You got me. I am extremely bitter and jealous that I grew up without getting to clean my wang with a q-tip to ward off infection and foul odor like all the cool kids.

A q-tip? You just pull back and wipe it down in the shower, man. It even feels good. I mean, okay, I get that you're saying what you're saying as an effort to denigrate uncut guys so that you can remain convinced of your own genital superiority, and that's cool. But when you bring q-tips into it, you're just reinforcing the accuracy of this:

J. Frank Parnell: The only people who have all this confusion and bad information are circumcised guys. They're like boys in elementary school talking about vaginas.


I never understood why people thought cleaning your fully functional penis was a chore.  Hell its my favorite part of taking a shower:D  So much fun I had to include my wife in on the party.  The one eyed anaconda is so clean some weeks that its actually shiny.

Sure it adds a minute (or 30 if you got the alone time) to taking a shower, but there is not a strait or gay man alive who wont set aside a few minutes a day for his dick, right fellas?  Thats a universal truth amongst all men no matter their preferences in other people, we love our dick and our dicks two hairy friends.  Taking care of our dicks  and keeping them healthy is not a damn chore.  Its a god damn honor.

Circumcised or uncircumcised should not even be an issue if your partner cares for you. If you have a partner who does not perform oral sex there is some issue other than the oral sex at play regardless of what he or she might say. I will break up with a partner who does not engage in oral sex during lovemaking, for me it is not an optional part of lovemaking but a key component. Many times I will engage in oral sex until my partner and/or I climax a few times before actual intercourse, because it is very enjoyable and prolongs the intercourse.

Theaetetus: I'm not sure how you make arguments about reduced incidences of penile cancer

or cervical cancer in partners...


AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY

February 16, 1996
Dr. Peter Rappo
Committee on Practice & Ambulatory Medicine American
Academy of Pediatrics141 Northwest Point Boulevard
P. O. Box 927Elk Grove Village, IL 60009-0927


Dear Dr. Rappo:

As representatives of the American Cancer Society, we would like to discourage the American Academy of Pediatrics from promoting routine circumcision as preventative measure for penile or cervical cancer.

The American Cancer Society does not consider routine circumcision to be a valid or effective measure to prevent such cancers. Research suggesting a pattern in the circumcision status of partners of women with cervical cancer is methodologically flawed, outdated and has not been taken seriously in the medical community for decades.

Likewise, research claiming a relationship between circumcision and penile cancer is inconclusive. Penile cancer is an extremely rare condition, effecting one in 200,000 men in the United States. Penile cancer rates in countries which do not practice circumcision are lower than those found in the United States. Fatalities caused by circumcision accidents may approximate the mortality rate from penile cancer. Portraying routine circumcision as an effective means of prevention distracts the public from the task of avoiding the behaviors proven to contribute to penile and cervical cancer: especially cigarette smoking and unprotected sexual relations with multiple partners. Perpetuating the mistaken belief that circumcision prevents cancer is inappropriate.

Sincerely,

Hugh Shingleton, M.D. National Vice President
Clark W. Heath, Jr., M.D.Vice President Detection & Treatment Epidemiology & Surveillance Research

no clever name here just move along     

flux: a_real_human_being: it was created long ago as an attempt to prevent masturbation and then, all of a sudden, became about 'cleanliness'.

It took me a long time as a young man to figure out why lotion came up in connection to masturbation. Really, I had no idea how lotion played into it, or why, and it just seemed... well, girly, rubbing soft, scented lotion all over yourself. Eventually I figured out that guys who've had their foreskin cut off have nothing between their hand and the head of their dick, so they needed it for lubrication. Seems like kind of a hassle. But now I also get why hotels have little things of lotion alongside the shampoo and conditioner.

I had a similar thing trying to figure out why other cold weather cyclists were talking about these little fleece penis hats. It had just never occurred to me that they don't have a foreskin to close up over their dicks in cold weather.

They know a lot more today:
Circumcision Linked To Lower Prostate Cancer Risk Article Date: 12 Mar 2012 - 12:00 PST

An interesting and relatively simple piece of research into prostate cancer has been released this week. It is one that you might have thought would have been done a lot sooner. The paper shows evidence that supports circumcision in reduction of prostate cancer risk.

The article published by the American Cancer Society looked at more than 1,750 cases and took an additional 1,645 cases for controls. The results showed that circumcision, before the man's first sexual intercourse, had a 15% reduction in prostate cancer risk, when compared to uncircumcised men. This risk reduction was observed for cases with both less aggressive (odds ratio, 0.88; 95% CI, 0.74-1.04) and more aggressive (odds ratio, 0.82; 95% CI, 0.66-1.00) Prostate Cancers.


But hey, what the fark do they know, right?

Dimensio: Flab: Pangit: "And the 1997 study found that the oral sex gap is considerably narrower among Hispanic and black men, who are more likely to remain uncircumcised than American whites are. In fact, uncircumcised Hispanic men are more likely to engage in oral sex than their circumcised peers. "

So I'm more likely to receive a BJ from an uncircumcised hispanic male than one who is cut?

If you're into getting blow jobs by hispanic males, yes.  I guess.

I am uncertain whether the most appropriate reply to your posting is a picture of a young Antonio Banderas or of an old Danny Trejo.

IdBeCrazyIf: nickerj1: You're obviously a Mensa candidate. The child got the original infection because they were uncircumcised. The entire thing could have been avoided if they were circumcised when they should have been.

What makes that comment, their not yours, is that obviously the circumcision was the most serious event in that persons life. Like they totally read this paragraph

Dr. Money forced the twins to rehearse sexual acts involving "thrusting movements," with David playing the bottom role.[4] David Reimer painfully recalled that, as a child, he had to get "down on all fours" with his brother, Brian Reimer, "up behind his butt" with "his crotch against" his "buttocks".[4] Dr. Money forced David, in another sexual position, to have his "legs spread" with Brian on top.[4] Dr. Money also forced the children to take their "clothes off" and engage in "genital inspections."[4] On at "least one occasion," Dr. Money took a photograph of the two children doing these activities.[4] Dr. Money's rationale for these various treatments was his belief that "childhood 'sexual rehearsal play'" was important for a "healthy adult gender identity."[4]

And just kept on trucking like nothing happened.

Probably because they are circumcised and it looks normal to them. I am and I like the way it looks, seems nicer to me. I didn't have my son circumcised though. Just didn't make sense to cut off a healthy body part.

Their findings that are published in the journal Cancer, say that it is not clear exactly why it helps reduce prostate cancer, perhaps due to cleanliness or the reduction in STD's....


So since you brought it up, if these studies are right, guess what else would reduce PROSTATE cancer?

Washing and condoms.

Gasp! You mean the same results can be obtained without unnecessary, dangerous SURGERY on a baby's penis? Say it ain't so!

We're a pair of new fangled American parents that didn't go in for the circumcision package at birth.  In fact, the only person who asked about it was the nurse when I called to book his 3 month well baby visit.  I hope no one does wait until 3 months to have it done.  Every one else just naturally assumed we weren't doing it.  Anyhow, being of the female persuasion whose only experience is with circumcised men, I'm SOOO glad I'm not the one who is going to have to explain to the kid how to clean himself when it is able to retract.  Since the husband doesn't have the skin, I do wonder how he's going to broach the subject.

RockofAges: Peki: Rock of Ages, forgive the lack of quoting, but copy/pasta iPad sucks.

I've seen him clean it. He can move the skin around, just not pull it all the way back. Neither of us have had any unusual infections (I get a yeastie about once a year, but that's normal when I'm not on birth control). Sex is very pleasurable, just takes a lube, which again, is completely normal, since I tend to run on the dry side and will pop condoms if no lube is applied.

We have discussed getting it fixed. It appears it's simply a bit of fused skin on the underside that's preventing him, but we don't know if a doc would be willing to just snip the fuse or if they would insist on full circumcision. Again, we've been together four years, and there has been nothing unusual. No unusual taste, smell, nada. He's never had inflammation, and we both have tested negative for STDs the entire time we've been together. He's open to the idea, but honestly, why?

Again, just because the medical community goes "OMG we can't imagine how this could possibly be hygienic" doesn't mean it can't be, and since I'm quick to get UTIs and yeasties, I would know if there was a problem.

Peki: There is a large chance that the "fused skin on the underside" is just a normal part -- the frenulum. Again, it is simple "practice" that allows this to extend. If you have never been with another au naturelle man, you may not know the diffence. The general uncut male will be able to unsheathe at any time, with no problem. The frenulum remains attached to the back of the glans, and to the foreskin. It can be VERY tight (esp. as a boy -- who remembers, fellas?) but, as I said, over time and cleaning sessions this problem goes away, usually well before puberty.

It's good that you've had an open talk about it and I appreciate the candour. I would just sincerely recommend that you guys take SOME action on it because honestly, I don't think he realizes what COULD be if he can get the lolly all the way out there. It's just not fair! ;)

all the best.


Meh. All it takes is one long rough fun filled night and a bottle of whiskey sans condom and lube. Thats how i sorta remember it at least. He'll be a little sore maybe bleed a bit. But isn't that basically how it is for girls. Tell him to man up to the level of a teenage girl.

Uncircumcised dicks look like dog dicks.


They don't taste the same, though.

FarkinHostile: Theaetetus: Considering that you cherry picked two words in my earlier post to reply to and jump in with your outdated letter, I don't think you should really be throwing stones, y'know?


By cherry picking you mean utterly destroy your assertion that circumcision prevents penile and cervical cancer?


By cherry picking, I'm referring to the fact that I listed several different preventative features, and you selectively quoted to address only that one. You know, cherry picking.

Oh, and just for good measure, here's a 2011 study to counter your letter from two decades ago:
There was a strong protective effect of childhood/adolescent circumcision on invasive penile cancer (OR = 0.33; 95% CI 0.13-0.83; 3 studies).

poot_rootbeer: Circumcision: unnecessary, largely harmless.

Can we be done with this debate now?


"Largely harmless." Interesting way to phrase that when you could more appropriately say "potentially harmful".

gadian: We're a pair of new fangled American parents that didn't go in for the circumcision package at birth.  In fact, the only person who asked about it was the nurse when I called to book his 3 month well baby visit.  I hope no one does wait until 3 months to have it done.  Every one else just naturally assumed we weren't doing it.  Anyhow, being of the female persuasion whose only experience is with circumcised men, I'm SOOO glad I'm not the one who is going to have to explain to the kid how to clean himself when it is able to retract.  Since the husband doesn't have the skin, I do wonder how he's going to broach the subject.


I had the same issue and had to do some research on the web to learn what needed to be done. One thing I had no idea about is that the foreskin can't be fully retracted till he's about five years old. Just tell him matter of factly what he needs to do when you are teaching him to wash himself.
