    Open and an internal organ is removed to the cutting off of a foreskin is bloody stupid .
    I suggest you research what a foreskin actually does, you must of missed that in class as well because it does far more than the tip of a finger

    DH is circ'd, he was done at the age of 4 due to ongoing infections.. Not sure if that was the case today if they would have been so snip happy? I think alot has changed in the medical field in this regard.

    I am happy he is done, I personally find it cleaner (for me) and therefore did some research in case we have a boy, as I thought it may be something I would want to do. I have since decided against it based on the benefits/risks I have read, and DH was of that opinion all along, despite being done himself.

    Good luck with your decision, and do lots of research

    You can die unless a diseased gall bladder is removed. To live with GB disease is excruitiatingly painful and can lead to pancreatitis.

    This is a fab idea. I looked up on youtube laser eye surgery before I had mine done, and also the operation I was going to put my dog through to restore her vision (she had cataracts and was almost completely blind) before making the decisions to go ahead with the procedures. Its not very nice to see things like that but better to see it on a pc on someone else then in the moment yourself when you can't go back!

    You have missed the point. The comparison being drawn is the unnecessary removal of a functioning piece of the human body, to prevent a non-existent medical condition.

    The fact that it is skin (albeit a very important piece of skin, IMO, with a role to play) is no reason to value it any less than other parts of the body. I respect all parts of my son's body the same - organs and skin alike - and would not remove any without his consent unless medically required.

    My XH wanted DS done, I was hesitant and let it happen.
    I will not be circing this baby if it's a boy. To listen to my baby scream in the the other room while it was being done was the most horrible and guilty feeling.
    Then the recovery was yukky and scary.
    Will not be doing it again and I feel bad that DS has his done

    A decision like this is one to carefully consider. Do not be bullied either way, make an informed choice.
    I had my little fella done and there was no chopping of anything, i gave him panadol before and after and the skin was removed by lazer. There were no tears.
    A lot of ppl will try to make you feel bad for having it done but you have to be strong enough to ignore them, i would much rather him have it done whilst little than go thru it at a later stage where it truely is extremely painful and memorable.

    I'm really disappointed to see that where I wrote "no judgements as I understand this can be a controversial topic" was completely ignored by some people. Eg, "genital mutilation". All I was asking for was people's experiences, not to be told what is right or wrong or to read other people being vilified for their decisions.

    I feel really sad over the responses to what was an innocently intended post. I thought BH was a safe place to discuss these kinds of things with other grown up adults but apparently not.

    1. The outer foreskin is indeed merely a continuation of the penile shaft skin. But it performs an important function because the penis has the unique ability to expand greatly in length and girth, and that "excess" skin is there to accommodate erection and thereby retain skin mobility.

    2. The inner foreskin is not in fact skin, but a complex structure of highly enervated tissue, including the the frenulum, frenular delta and ridged band. The excision of these structures is non-trivial, and the long-term effects unpredictable, at best.

    Honestly - I can't see that that comment wouldn't have bothered you in the slightest if you didn't feel one way or the other about circ.
