Male Circumcision
 
# 1 : Thursday 8-11-2018 @ 20:54
 
 
The very idea horrifies me normally but I must admit that a circumcised penis can look very good and tidy and seems to have health benefits too, if I'm to believe what I read at times.
I do think that it should be an informed decision by the male at a certain age - not sure what one to be honest - rather than forced on a young boy or indeed baby.
I'm a tad old for it now probably but I'd be interested to hear what what cut and uncut boys and men have to say on the topic?

Cruel mutilation when performed for pseudo cultural/religious reasons on children.

Porn-driven fad for adults.

Rarely medically justified procedure.

I was not porn driven - just had a tight foreskin. Put it off for ages and was really happy when I got it done!

You could ducktape your foreskin back and simulate the circumcised experience tell us how it feels ...blog it

I'd say you spend a fortune on lube or does aldi/ lidl sell lube?

No need for lube [except for sex of course...]. It's amazing. I was worried it would be sore but it's fine. you're welcome to come over and see my cut cock sometime, lads!

I got circumcised at 55. It was necessary because I had developed phimosis - an extreme tightness of the foreskin. I'm used to it now but sometimes I still miss my foreskin.

No Health benefits.

The only time it's necessary is if there is a problem with the person's foreskin and even at that, there are procedures that can fix that which don't involve circumcision.

Like John K, i was diagnosed with phimosis about 7 yrs ago (age 55). It was sore and when the skin would crack, the stinging pain was fierce especially when having a pee. Sex was out as the skin would tear and bleed. Got it done and out same day from hospital. The bandage wrap was enormous but the recovery was fairly quick, probably 4-5 days but my cock looked raw and ugly at first but not sore at all. My lad is very sensitive since the removal though,and definitely different having sex or jerking off. It took a while to get used to it too, and initially I would get erections walking around as my knob would be rubbing off my briefs - sometimes useful but sometimes not. Happy out now but prefer the foreskin.

I'd rather cut it all off, takes up too much room and gets in the way of everything

Thanks for the replies lads. Pat seems happiest with being cut, while Mossy & John are less enthusiastic about it than him. I appreciate the honesty.

Health-wise some seem to think it's good for reducing the levels of HIV and of course that could also be the case if proper hygiene standards are maintained, which I have doubts about. Some guys aren't too clean there at times or don't have the facilities perhaps.

Some cut guys seemingly wouldn't have it any other way but that could be upbringing and culture.

Just something I never gave too much thought to before but interesting for sure.

Duct tape? I need to reflect on that one!

I'm not sure about hiv transmission ? In the US and South Africa circumcision are fairly widespread but hiv levels are high, why do you think circumcision prevents transmission ?

In terms of hygiene it's easy to wash behind your foreskin no health benefit to not having one - some men do have tight foreskin but it's not necessary mostly to have a circumcision, a small piece of the foreskin can be cut out to allow retraction .
The scar tissue can be really ugly .
It would be interesting to know how many circumcisions go wrong the percentage and what happens in these cases.

I'd like you to justify that claim.
"some seem to think" is not sufficient cause to make a claim like that.

It is a wild unsubstantiated and irresponsible claim made mostly by African religious zealots opposed to family planning and proper contraception, usually formerly HIV-deniers...

WHO/UNAIDS recommendations emphasize that male circumcision should be considered an efficacious intervention for HIV prevention in countries and regions with heterosexual epidemics, high HIV and low male circumcision prevalence.

Male circumcision provides only partial protection, and therefore should be only one element of a comprehensive HIV prevention package which includes: the provision of HIV testing and counseling services; treatment for sexually transmitted infections; the promotion of safer sex practices; the provision of male and female condoms and promotion of their correct and consistent use.
