It's easier to pass yourself off as Jewish later in life if you have the procedure done! :classic:

Seriously though, I believe that circumcised males are less prone to heath issue due to stuff getting "trapped" in the area. I'm sure that as a parent it's easier to clean without the extra skin.

As an aside, this thread has caused me to draw conclusions about Mr. G. that I just didn't want to know.

snip, snip unless you want to clean poo out of crevices

It's no worst than cleaning up than with girls.

(the wife and I have 3 girls, 1 boy and 1 of each in the oven)

My only child was a girl, and she was born before gender identification tests were available. I remember the nurse telling me I had to sign some circumcision papers before our child was born. I had to leave the waiting room for a few minutes, and when I came back I was told I had a daughter. I then went to the nurse and told her I was ready to sign the papers. She, obviously experienced with stressed out parents, gently told me it was no longer necessary.

So she could be Rosie O'Donnell? :cheeky:

If you're snipped, you should snip your son. By most accounts, it's more hygienic.

I thought there was a risk with circumcision of something or other. Don't recall it just now, but I seem to remember some sort of medical risk. Iirc the advice here is not to - it's certainly not common practice.

I remember hearing Howard Stern talk about it reducing sensitivity when it comes to coitus.

Here is the question to ask: How many adult movie stars are uncircumcised?

I would recommend the snipping for a couple of reasons.

#1 A few years back my uncle went in to be circumcised because of the onset of health issues that unfortunately can pop up with age no matter how well you maintain your bits and pieces. I cannot begin to imagine the pain an adult man goes through to have had this done at this point in his life (he's was in his late 70's at the time).

It's sort of like a convertible sports car; fantastic when it's new but as it gets older you might start experiencing problems getting the top up and down. (there's a picture Rockwell forgot to paint). :confused:

#2 I know it's still many, many, many years from now but think about what the ladies are going to like (and cue bad porn music now)

Honestly, the parent will have to clean there anyways. Theres no health risk if the child cleans it growing up. I don't know about later in life, but my grandfather did fine.

if nothing else, i would think that the drastically reduced chances of getting AIDS would be worth the snip.

http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources/factsheets/circumcision.htm

Several types of research have documented that male circumcision significantly reduces the risk of HIV acquisition by men during penile-vaginal sex.

Biologic Plausibility

Compared with the dry external skin surface, the inner mucosa of the foreskin has less keratinization (deposition of fibrous protein), a higher density of target cells for HIV infection (Langerhans cells), and is more susceptible to HIV infection than other penile tissue in laboratory studies [2]. The foreskin may also have greater susceptibility to traumatic epithelial disruptions (tears) during intercourse, providing a portal of entry for pathogens, including HIV [3]. In addition, the microenvironment in the preputial sac between the unretracted foreskin and the glans penis may be conducive to viral survival [1]. Finally, the higher rates of sexually transmitted genital ulcerative disease, such as syphilis, observed in uncircumcised men may also increase susceptibility to HIV infection [4].

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16184582/

Circumcising adult men is an effective way to limit transmission of the virus that causes AIDS. The National Institutes of Health announced today that two clinical trials in Africa have been stopped because an independent monitoring board determined the treatment was so effective that it would be unethical to continue the experiment.

"We now have confirmation — from large, carefully controlled, randomized clinical trials —showing definitively that medically performed circumcision can significantly lower the risk of adult males contracting HIV through heterosexual intercourse," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease. "While the initial benefit will be fewer HIV infections in men, ultimately adult male circumcision could lead to fewer infections in women in those areas of the world where HIV is spread primarily through heterosexual intercourse."

The NIH has been sponsoring two trials — one with 5,000 men, ages 15 to 49, in Uganda and a second with 2,784 men, 18-24, in Kenya. Half the men voluntarily underwent circumcision. The men were then monitored for about two years. Far more of the uncircumcised men became infected with HIV.

Story continues below

The studies found that the circumcised men in the Kenyan study were 48 percent less likely to get infected and 53 percent less likely in the Ugandan study.

Here's what you need to know:

My sister's father-in-law never had it done. When he was in his late 60's he was having problems with it because of being uncut. Major health problems, lots of pain, etc. So he had it done. He was in pain for weeks, couldn't move, etc. It was pretty bad both before he had it done, and after. I was told, that before it was done, the foreskin basically fused together and whenever he got aroused there were rips and tears and lots of bleeding.

IMO, if you have the chance to avoid the health problems, and get it done before the kid is born, then do it. I never hear of health problems from guys that have it done. I do hear of health problems from guys that don't have it done. IMO, that's case closed. Get it cut on day 2 or 3 and never worry about it again after the first month or so.

Your sister's father in-law likely didn't clean himself well?

A bit OT, but a close relative of mine, when a baby, had to have surgery to "lower the boom" a little bit. He was set up somewhat like a Roman fountain until he had the procedure!

Being childless, I actually assumed that snip snip was pretty much done to all the boys routinely, right after childbirth. I feel smarter now!

I dunno, you'd have to ask him. All I know is imo, it's a no-brainer to get it done and avoid any possible problems.

Do Europeans suffer from these problems that the Americans who don't snip apperantly suffer from? If these problems were so widespread, you'd think they'd start adopting the practice.
