Are you circumcised?
Would you rather be the other way?

Or do you prefer partners who have been circumcised? (For the ladies and gays)

Any child who has been circumcised should have a free pass to kick their father and the doctor who did it in the bollocks by way of retaliation. With steel toecap boots.

I'm not saying anything for myself, but I've heard a lot of women saying they prefer men who have been circumcised.

Thank God I'm from Central America, where circumcision is uncommon.

I would have used something more painful than steel-toed boots.

Eh, I'm fine. Being circumcised, as far as I know has not caused me any problems. I have heard that sex is more enjoyable for someone who is uncircumcised. I can confirm that it still feels great regardless. I harbor no ill will towards my parents.

Why all the hate for circumcision?
Not sure “hate” is the right word. It’s just not “normal” in most European countries, or at least wasn’t when I was young. There was still some stigma associated, maybe a hangover of the virulent anti-semitism of not long before. Most of my generation had parents & other family members that fought in WW2.
Like the post above mentioned for Central America, where a thing is unusual/abnormal it gets treated as a rather bizarre practise.
“Religious groups” do it, but not “us”.
I am told that in USA this is not the case & my first girlfriend in USA had to explain that uncircumcised males were quite rare in USA, which of course was a bit of a shock for me. At the time I thought it was only people from the Middle East that adopted this practise.

I’m glad I wasn’t circumcised for the same reasons I abhor most things humans do to themselves in an attempt to improve on nature’s work. Boob jobs, nose jobs, facelifts, Grecian 2000, Botox, I’m sure you can think of others.
I believe we are made the way we are supposed to be & our attempts to do things “better” are the miserable failures you could expect.
Maybe that’s another debate however...

Ok, I understand now. Thanks for explaining.

Interesting point about trying to "improve" our bodies. Sort of ironic considering it was a practice first used by Jews, the very people who believe in a perfect God that created humans in His image.

Never missed the bit that was removed surgically and I have been reliably informed that I have plenty left. So no animus on my part towards parents or doctors.
First I would make it clear that I am quite aware that I do not have the largest tool in the hardware store, but I'm definitely in the top 15%.
When I was a young blighter I did fantasise/wish for a bit more so I could be a porno star.
It's definitely been an interesting journey. The reactions of other men, admiration, envy, hatred when they've spotted it in a sports changing room or showers.
The myth making of mates who cannot resist embellishment & exaggeration, and what that leads to.
Women's reactions are similarly varied, from delight to shock/horror.
I'm bloody lucky to have lived in the age of modern antibiotics and now as an older Blighter, the age of Viagra.
I will always be loyal to my Lovely Fire Breathing MemSahib Her Serene Imperiousness Indoors lying on a sofa eating cakes, but there came a time when Her Imperiousness announced that she had "had enough of that damn thing" and we had a discussion and came to an understanding. So for example I cannot embarrass her by flaunting a mistress in her presence. I do have her complete approval to discreetly satisfy my needs and desires with other women, and young Princess Estelle is a delightful, beautiful mistress, although the cost of Tiffany trinkets etc etc will keep me in harness until God strikes me down.
Which brings me to the topic of God. There's a challenging relationship. If there is a Christian God then the blighter must have unlimited patience and an infinite sense of humour. Create me as I am and then also create legions of acolytes who seek to impose a stifling, unnatural morality upon me.
No surprise then that I am naturally arrogant, a confusing mix of self assured superiority and self loathing, or that when as a confused teenager I read Jerzy Kosonski's novel " The Painted Bird" I found it to be incredibly illuminating on several levels, but most dramatically, the flocks hatred of the outsider.

Yeah circumcision is the norm here in the US. Having been an infant I don't remember my circumcision and so I don't hold it against my parents or doctor or society at all.
I remember being told when I was a child that circumcision helped prevent infection or something along those lines, and used that as an explanation for why it was so common. Kind of like getting your wisdom teeth out or something. No clue if there is remotely any basis to that claim. The real reason it is probably the norm in the US is because it's a tradition that has been propagated through time.

I was not circumcised at birth, but apparently my brother had something wrong with his doo-daa about foreskin sticking to it or growing over it and not retracting or some shit, so when they did him, they threw me in for free (high likelihood of similar affliction so they told my Mum - I was only 2 or 3 at the time being born in the UK where it was not common practice).
I can solemnly confess to have had well over 100 partners over the course of my sexual life to date, and have never had a complaint, but have been told too many times for it to be pillow talk BS that girls like the aerodynamic version, and when probed they often refer to poor hygiene practices of the uncut as the reason for their cut preference.
So there are legitimate health reasons for the unkindest cut, and it seems to be a hit with most females - although my sample is somewhat suspect.

I'd like to add that I am uncircumcised and sort of wish I was because it would be easier to clean. I can't speak to the female side of things, but I do think that there is a significant hygienic benefit to being more streamlined.

I'm not really understanding the cleaning point. It's not exactly a hardship, is it? It would be slightly easier to wash my hands if I didn't have little fingers by virtue of there being less hand to wash, but that's not a convincing argument to cut those fingers off.

My knowledge of the mechanics of circumcision is a little suspect as I've never actually seen one, so I'm hoping someone can confirm or deny a potential myth picked up from American films. Is it true that circumcised Americans (or to use the correct terminology, victims of male genital mutilation) need to use a lubricant to aid masturbation? A pet theory is that the practice may have been born out of an effort to stop people going blind, so to speak.

Complete load of BS - and there are degrees of circumcision - specifically exactly how much skin is taken.
Having said that, I have to say that people calling it genital mutilation with a complete absence of knowledge should probably just shut the fuck up and ask questions rather than pose value judgements. Just saying.

Dearest Jmo & Ubercacher. Fortunately I am in my sixth decade so I've...
1 had over 90% of the sex I'm ever likely to have.
&2 had decades of experience with things like, being introduced to strangers by one​ particular male friend as "Meet donkey dick" etc, which has a novelty value for the first few years but becomes rather tiresome after a decade or so.
As I noted, the reactions of other chaps is another thing I've had decades of experience with.
I would also re~emphasise the fact that I am well aware that there are a reasonable number of men with larger sets of "wedding tackle" than myself, I expect that they have had similar experiences on their journey through life.
Similar experiences with the responses of other chaps & women.
Or things like a temporary loss of conciousness during sex, the common factors for me with this have been, I'm on my back with my head raised on pillows, with the woman on top & pounding me in a frenzied state and I start seeing bright spots and then I black out completely.
It is what it is. Your amused disbelief is quite normal, I'll take that over envy & hostility and continue on unaffected.
That is a difference between the reactions of women to men. Most women, in my opinion, after the initial surprise attach far less significance to the "size issue" than the majority of chaps. Yes there have been a few women who have changed their mind about consent, but most simply accept it for what it is. Their egos are unaffected. Not so with men.
