CJHardin: Kazaa: The more you eat the more you fart: The only thing that REALLY matters is: do women prefer cut or uncut?

After all...thats kinda the only thing that matters lol.

I can say that I went to a party once, and a women quite loudly announced to her friends that she preferred cut, and that uncut felt "gross".  None of the friends objected to the comment.  However, I think most of them couldn't believe she said it that loudly.

I don't think cosmetic surgery on newborns is that great an idea...keep it clean and ur gtg. Same as teaching little girls how to wipe...keep it clean!

I was born in Ireland in 1960 and wasn't. Come high school gym class it was clear I was in a very small minority. When my sons were born that factored into our choice to, um, alter them. It's a decision I sometimes regret. I dunno.
 
2013-08-22 01:10:33 PM  

Civchic: God Is My Co-Pirate: Nana's Vibrator: Call it bias or whatever, but after both my sons were born, the doctors at the hospital made a strong case for circumcision and essentially told us we would simply be wrong by choosing otherwise.  I confess, I tended to believe the doctors in the hospital that was ranked #1 in the US (#2 behind Hopkins this year)

Our doctor pretty much told us not to, very much "well of course it's your decision but there's no good reason to, you'll have to pay out of pocket and schedule a separate appointment."

I had a midwife, it didn't even come up in discussion.  I guess if I'd wanted it done, we would have discussed, but noone in either my or my husband's family is cut (white as they come Canadians, all of us).  It seems completely unnecessary.


It follows that if you have a midwife, you're probably not going to be following traditional medicinal guidelines.

Target Builder: ZeroCorpse: Call it my western aesthetic values

There's only one western country where circumcision is common.


And I live in it, therefore, I'm glad my cock fits the American ideal of what is aesthetically pleasing to the women I've known, all of whom also lived in America with American aesthetic values (even the immigrants). I'm glad my parents' decision makes my current fiancee very happy. I'm glad I don't have to clean smegma out of my foreskin, too.

I certainly don't feel "mutilated" by any definition of the word. "Grateful" is a more fitting word.

Midwives are smart, and don't believe in genital mutilation.
 
2013-08-22 01:13:27 PM  

God Is My Co-Pirate: Yeah, up here in Canada there really is a big trend away from it.


Trend - exactly.

Basically, for me, it comes down to how well I can police my kids. I have a hard enough time mandating showers and teeth brushing. Having to add cock cleaning to the list wouldn't kill me, but it would be just one more thing to remind 'em about.

And really, if it's just a trend-thing... Don't need it.

thegrievingmole: CJHardin: ddam: Fo Shiz: Apparently Hispanics have lower rates of circumcision.  Most western states' Medicaid programs (including CA, OR and WA) do not cover circumcision as a routine procedure.  So can we infer that high birth rates among Hispanics along with some associated lack of health insurance leads to a lower rate of circumcision?

Neither did my private insurance so my son who's about to be 2 soon is uncut. No way I'd pay $400 for that procedure, especially since it's not necessary.

I'm sure he will thank you for the additional 20,000 nerve endings when he is old enough to make that decision for himself.

And not needing lube for masturbation.


I am cut and I don't need any.

Hospitals charge quite a lot of money for this procedure and the amount varies quite a bit depending on the Hospital (from $235 to $2,150 in Alaska). When questioned on how they could justify charging over $2000.00 the answer seems to be that: 1) they have to have a hospital on standby in case something goes wrong 2) They usually only collect a fraction of the $2000.00 from insurance companies.

Those numbers fall under the "lies, damn lies, and statistics" end of things. They only count circumcisions done in hospitals - not those done in religious ceremonies or in doctor's offices. There's reason to believe there's been a decrease, but there's also reason to believe that more people are having circumcisions done outside of a hospital setting. So the real numbers are unknown.

as a female who'd only had sex with circumcised men until i met my current boyfriend/future husband, who is intact, i have to say that without a doubt uncut is better.  i'd been one of those "it's cleaner/looks better" kind of believers until i met my guy.  it's different in a better way for him and me. unless you know, you don't know and i can't describe it without getting explicit.

Having only been with only one guy who was uncut I must admit I preferred it. There was something naturally sexy about it. And it had nothing to do with how he performed because he needed help in that regard.

This whole mess started when God ordered Abraham to circumcise himself, his offspring and all of his kinsmen.

Of course, God meant to say castrate, but in fairness, he was drunk at the time.

I am aware that female genital mutilation is done for that purpose.  I would go so far as to say that the origins of male circumcision was brought about for some of the same reasons but it became more commonplace as many religions advocate them and they inevitably became the norm and was considered aesthetically pleasing.   As far as cleanliness I nor any male I know has had a problem allotting time to clean his penis.  It seems the major difference in those that are cut and the ones that are not is that those who are uncut have more nerve endings remaining on their penis  and tend to report that they enjoy sex more.  The end effect of the circumcision is loss of sensitivity any way you slice it.  Pun intended.

I guess my point is that both procedures are in my opinion equally unnecessary and harmful and I disagree with their continuance in modern medicine.

Yeah. I know that. And that's equally weird/offensive. But I don't think that's what he was referring to. I obviously could be wrong (typed "wong"...nice save autocorrect).

I'm mostly referring to what's going on now with female genital mutilation vs. current reasons for circumcision.

After all...thats kinda the only thing that matters lol.

I can say that I went to a party once, and a women quite loudly announced to her friends that she preferred cut, and that uncut felt "gross".  None of the friends objected to the comment.  However, I think most of them couldn't believe she said it that loudly.

Quote fail:  sigh.

I wonder what her thoughts on the aesthetics of female genital mutilation are?

She probably thinks that it's a different question, and only a troll would attempt to conflate the two.

Good thing I didn't intend it to be a troll.  I have met the type of women in real life that would call an uncircumcised penis gross and also condemn female genital mutilation.  I don't understand it.  I do understand that his anecdote did not include her thoughts on the other matter but I would guess that she would not say that uncut labia are gross.  Both procedures are mutilation in my opinion so I am taken aback by her view that an unmutilated penis is in her view "gross".  So sorry I voiced my snark and asked what is in my opinion a relevant question on your internets.

You do know that female genital mutilation is mostly done so a female can't experience pleasure from sex, right? It's not about aesthetics or cleanliness. It's about girls that likes sex = whore.

you do know that male genital mutilation is mostly done so a male can't experience as much pleasure from sex, right?  It's not about aesthetics or cleanliness. It's about men that like sex = horny guys that don't pay attention in church.

/soap & water... how does it work?


Yes, I understand that. But RIGHT NOW it's more about looks and assumed cleanliness. I don't necessarily agree with those ideas.

I am aware that female genital mutilation is done for that purpose.  I would go so far as to say that the origins of male circumcision was brought about for some of the same reasons but it became more commonplace as many religions advocate them and they inevitably became the norm and was considered aesthetically pleasing.   As far as cleanliness I nor any male I know has had a problem allotting time to clean his penis.  It seems the major difference in those that are cut and the ones that are not is ...


or what this fellow says.
his words are good.

Circumcision: for parents afraid of their children's naughty bits

CJHardin: ddam: Fo Shiz: Apparently Hispanics have lower rates of circumcision.  Most western states' Medicaid programs (including CA, OR and WA) do not cover circumcision as a routine procedure.  So can we infer that high birth rates among Hispanics along with some associated lack of health insurance leads to a lower rate of circumcision?

Neither did my private insurance so my son who's about to be 2 soon is uncut. No way I'd pay $400 for that procedure, especially since it's not necessary.

I'm sure he will thank you for the additional 20,000 nerve endings when he is old enough to make that decision for himself.


And this is why I'm sad I'm circumsised.

/Also I have sensitivity issues, too
//20,000 extra nerve endings matter so much more when it would double what you have
