but I think I have hijacked enough myself that I now need to start a new topic - please dont read any further if you are squeamish.
Firstly , I want to make it clear that I do not intend to be offensive to either Muslims or Jews ... but the subject of circumcision came up on the other thread and I as a nonMuslim/Jew I am curious and have some questions if anyone feels up to answering them for me
1/ do adults converting to either religion have to undergo the operation ?
2/ a poster on the other thread claimed that circumcision lowers STD
transmission and reduces rates of penile cancer - anyone have ( pardon
the pun ) hard facts on this ?
3/ I have been told that 'cut' men have less sensitive penises than 'intact'
men - despite the reputation that gay men have for being sluts I haven't
actually slept around all that much .. and only in western countries where
obviously circumcision is a lot less common ... anyone with a bit more
experience of both types care to tell me whether they think there is any
truth to this
4/ apparently sometimes adult males have to undergo circumcision for
medical reasons .... obviously anyone who has had this done is in a
pretty good position to advise whether sex/orgasm was more intense
before or after ... so , anyone who has been there , done that and is
brave enough to tell Anet ?

Not to imply that I have, but. . .
In the States circumcision for guys in my age range (30-50) is more the norm than the exception. They got this wild notion back in the early 20th century that it was the thing to do, and as far as I know it's still the 'norm' for most infants, although the practice is (luckily) declining. It wasn't until I started traveling to Europe in my late 20s that I ran into any uncut guys.
As far as the cleanliness issue, my only comment is that you can quickly tell if an uncut guy hasn't showered in a day or two, whereas, just dealing w/ the 'helmet' it's not so obvious on a circumcised guy.
Having said that, I prefer the full deal, my partner is as nature intended, and it works for both of us. I don't notice him being any more sensitive than me though.
