I had an IRL conversation with someone that is pro ric. I've seen many conversations online and asked questions but I never realised just how silly it is until I actually heard the reasons.
• it's more clean and hygienic - surely teaching your son how to keep it clean can't be that hard... and an intact penis would most certainly be more hygienic than an open wound sitting in a nappy all day.
• it makes for better sex - because desensitizing a part of your penis would feel much better? I think not.
• it's better than going through the pain if you need it done later in life - you're right, we wouldn't want an adult to go through that pain so we'll just do it to a tiny baby who can't have all of the pain relief that is available to adults... because that makes sense.
There were more reasons put forward in this conversation, but the above three are what really made me stop and think.
I don't know what the point of this thread is, I suppose I just needed to get it out that I can finally see just how utterly stupid ric is.
