We are expecting a boy, he won't be circumcised. I see no value in surgery performed for no medical reason and when there is no consent.
DP is circumcised; if the differences ever come up we will just tell our son the truth .

Sorry, only comment is genetal mutilation. Only someone who can't say no.

I believe in leaving the body as nature intended unless there are impending medical reasons, if it's not broke why fix it. I don't think the excuse of being surrounded by circumcised males is a valid one considering it would be quite easy to obtain the information on keeping it clean.

I agree with all the PPs - I would never do it, unless medically recommended.
My mother had my brothers done because that was the norm "in those days" and once she qualified as a midwife and actually sat in on the procedure it horrified her. If you do decide to have your baby done I would only respectfully suggest you stay with him while they do it - I couldn't bare the thought of that being done to my boy and me not being there with him to comfort him .

In terms of what parents in Australia do, the latest complete figures (2010-11) show about 15% of boys will be circumcised by the time they start school. If we subtract therapeutic and religious circumcisions, that leaves less than 10% routinely circumcised.
On that basis alone it would seem like a poor idea, given a circumcised boy will be the "odd one out", and if it was not done therapeutically (ie to correct a problem), there is a strong likelihood he will strongly resent it when older.
