For my child It wasn't a decision, It was obvious what the right answer was. It's is not our body, it is his, and his alone to make the decision
Unfortunatly my genitals were cut up as an infant and the #### amputated, yes these are harsh words but that is what it is. I always wondered why I had the line around my #### with what looks like scars 90 degrees to that line. after I found out what circumcision was I really really wanted to believe it was for the best, but the facts and reason kept getting in the way.
why would nature/God put it there if it wasn't necessary? why is it even a question of whether the most sensitive part of a man's #### need to be cut off (sorrell's fine touch study showed that the #### is 4 times more sensitive)
well what about the so-called protection/benefits, well let's go through it
urinary tract infections - treatable by antibiotics, even intact boys have 1/3 the occurence as girls, and would you even consider cutting the genitals on your daughter for this risk
what about sexually transmitted diseases's? for every study that says there is a benefit there are at least the same number that show no benefit, keep in mind there was even one study that was set to prove how female circumcision increased the hiv infection rate, but found that circumcised women were 40% LESS likely to get AIDS.
and even if they were valid, would you rather play russian roulette with 1 bullet instead of two? that extra sensation would sure be nice to make up for using a condom which is a proven way to prevent ####'s
look at where circumcision evolved from and the religions that tend to practice it, they tend to be or have been against sex for sexual pleasure. circumcision became popular in the victorian era specifically for the harm it did, it was thought that reduced pleasure would reduce masturbation.
and to finish this off, what really sealed the deal for me was #### restoration, yes some of the function can be regained, although DO NOT think of this as true back to normal, it only returns some function but none of the nerves or special structures of the ####. but what it did give me was nothing short of excellent, sex quality went way up, not so much of a race to the finish anymore, I can enjoy it and truly feel the sensations. It's so hard to describe how much benefit having minimal friction sex (the #### acts like a rolling bearing essentially) If I could get people to experience the difference I have experienced no one would consider circumcision
I do highly resent my parents making a decision that didn't need to be made, for mutilating part of my body, I've restored it as much as I can the restored #### now covers the scars, but emotionally anything that even mentions circumcision feels me with intense sadness and rage.
